Nothing specifically stupid today, but the "science is the devil" guy from the house science committee is running for senate. I'm especially interested in the Conservative Victory Project angle and how that's all going to play out.

After I refused the job to run the plant lab, they put Mighty Mormon in charge of it. One of his first tasks was to clean the lab up. So, he got a five gallon glass carboy and started pouring the various unlabeled or expired chemicals into it. It exploded with a pop. I was in the next room, the control room. I asked MM if he was okay, he said yes, but he had a bit of a mess to clean up. It was right then that I noticed the purple stuff oozing out from under the wall. I went in to see what was going on. The bottle had exploded, the purple stuff was all over the room, but there was an arc untouched where he had been standing when it blew. And he didn't get a drop on him. Naturally, he claimed it was the magic underwear.

I figured it to be more attributable to that being the side of the carboy that had the paper label on it, as that was the largest piece of the glass container still intact.

That is wrong on every single level. Not only is it fraudulent to the government, but it also tells a kid with great potential, “don’t try because you’re disabled.”
I know this goes without saying, really, but this is wrong about kids being able to get ssi and ss disability. Also, it is super hard for kids to get ssi. AND, kids almost always hit a review at 18.

The Obama administration wants to "cull the herd" by killing enough people to drop the human population from billions to hundreds of millions. That, my friends, is what's behind the administration's gun control proposal.

We know this because the 100% sane, totally non-crazy Alan Keyes said so.

An unimpeachable source.

I suppose that if you stand at the end of the runway and shoot at the airplanes landing and taking off, you could possibly shoot one down. In the 'ground support' types of aircraft that's called 'ground fire', but then, ground support aircraft fly low...but then, it's not just assault rifles; a well-aimed pigeon or seagull will do the trick, too.

I never meant it seriously. One could shoot a plane down with an assault rifle, but one would have to have a lot of luck to do so, I think.

Oh hey we've got our own home-grown conservatives spouting idiocy down here. One of our MPs got annoyed about not being able to carry a pocket knife onto a plane, so he published a rant calling for muslims to be barred from flying:

Quote:
I will not stand by while my daughters rights and freedoms, and those of other New Zealanders and Westerners, are denigrated by a sorry pack of misogynist troglodytes from 'Wogistan', threatening our way of life and security of travel... If the belief systems of ancient history are so important to you, and the advances of the decadent West so abhorrent, go ride a camel instead

I like how racists these days like to point at 'misogyny' and 'homophobia' as things they hate about those awful Mooslims, only to come up with remarkable amounts of it themselves the next time they open their big yaps. Women's rights, gay rights, all just a weapon to hit them over the head with, nothing to take seriously yourself...

Teabatters reach new lows:

Quote:
Report: FreedomWorks made fake Hillary Clinton sex video
By: Kevin Robillard
February 14, 2013 08:40 AM EST

A leading tea party group made a video of a fake Hillary Clinton having sex with a panda to show to a massive gathering of conservatives before scrapping the film, according to a report Thursday.

Mother Jones reported two female interns at FreedomWorks played the parts, with one wearing a panda suit and one wearing a Clinton mask. In the video, FreedomWorks Executive Vice President Adam Brandon is shown waking from a nap at his desk before wandering down the hall and witnessing the panda performing oral sex on Clinton in a dream sequence.

The video was screened for FreedomWorks staffers and was supposed to be shown at FreePac, a July 2012 conference in Dallas. The video was scrapped after staffers objected.

“How was that not some form of sexual harassment?” a former FreedomWorks official told the magazine. “And there were going to be thousands of Christian conservatives at this thing. This was a terrible lack of judgment.”

The magazine also reported Matt Kibbe, the group’s president, issued guidelines to hire women based on their appearance. Kibbe and Brandon were allies at the organization.

Former House Majority Leader Dick Armey had a high-profile split with FreedomWorks late last year over what he believed was Kibbe’s use of the group’s resources to promote himself. Mother Jones reported two of the group’s board members hired lawyers to investigate “allegations of wrongdoing by the organization or its employees.” The lawyers have interviewed Armey, according to Mother Jones.

That is...very confusing? Is it like a reference to The Shining and/or South Park? If it's an allusion to that scene in The Shining, I have to question whether they watched the whole movie.

Ben Shapiro over at the paragon of journalistic integrity Breitbart.com has reported that Chuck Hagel was paid off by the terror group "Friends of Hamas". There is only one small problem with this story: "Friends of Hamas" does not actually exist. It was made up by the New York Daily News for the purpose of hyperbole. There is, however, this hilarious website.

When confronted with this small inaccuracy in his story, do you think Shapiro sucked it up and issued a correction?

...Lol what kind of gullible moron are you? He issued this hilarious word salad-y non-retraction instead, which is so word salad-y that Wonkette has a contest going for anyone who can parse it to their satisfaction.

The wonderful thing about working for conservatives is that you never have to say you're wrong.

On a similar note, Mitch McConnell is also very concerned about made up facts, this time from a comedy blog:

Senate Minority Leader Fooled by Report in Military Version of The Onion | Danger Room | Wired.com

Quote:
On November 14, 2012, Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) wrote to Elizabeth King, the Pentagon’s congressional liaison, with a an unusually credulous query. “I am writing on behalf of a constituent who has contacted me regarding Guantanamo Bay prisoners receiving Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits,” McConnell wrote in a letter acquired by Danger Room. “I would appreciate your review and response to my constituent’s concerns.”

Um, Guantanamo detainees getting GI Bill benefits? Yes, that’s from the Duffel Blog, as McConnell’s constituent clearly states, complete with the reference URL. Said constituent even notes that he or she can’t find any information about the alleged government payouts to suspected insurgents and terrorists.

...

The Duffel Blog piece about the fake GI Bill benefits is not subtle. “By allowing the detainees to use the Department of Veterans Affairs, we hope to completely crush their souls with bureaucracy,” it quotes a fake Pentagon spokesman saying. There’s also a false quote from Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki: “Because most ‘guests’ at Guantanamo Bay have been there nearly a decade and there is no end in site for their ‘visit,’ the Department of Veterans Affairs is ready to have their claims processed in 12-15 years as per standard operating procedure.”

With cutting edge anti-establishment iconoclastic reporting like that, it's only a matter of time before the Obama administration turns the Heart Attack Gun on Mr. Shapiro.

Concerned audience member at CPAC Defends the Indefensible.

Quote:
The exchange occurred after an audience member from North Carolina, 30-year-old Scott Terry, asked whether Republicans could endorse races remaining separate but equal. After the presenter, K. Carl Smith of Frederick Douglass Republicans, answered by referencing a letter by Frederick Douglass forgiving his former master, the audience member said “For what? For feeding him and housing him?” Several people in the audience cheered and applauded Terry’s outburst.

That scrub covers all the bases:

Quote:
ThinkProgress spoke with Terry, who sported a Rick Santorum sticker and attended CPAC with a friend who wore a Confederate Flag-emblazoned t-shirt, about his views after the panel. Terry maintained that white people have been “systematically disenfranchised” by federal legislation.

When asked by ThinkProgress if he’d accept a society where African-Americans were permanently subservient to whites, he said “I’d be fine with that.” He also claimed that African-Americans “should be allowed to vote in Africa,” and that “all the Tea Parties” were concerned with the same racial problems that he was.

At one point, a woman challenged him on the Republican Party’s roots, to which Terry responded, “I didn’t know the legacy of the Republican Party included women correcting men in public.”

Jesus H. Horse Fucking Christ. CPAC gatherings always finds a speedy way to Crazytown, but this is the first time I recall them getting there via the What's The Big Deal About Slavery Express.

Also, lol @ the Update at the end of the article Bort linked. Seems that Terry made some "racially insensitive comments" but he and the Frederick Douglass Republicans panelist "left as friends" nonetheless.

The REAL problem at that session was the evil queynte of a reporter working for some communist Rusky magazine who had the temerity to ask how many black women were there. That was "intentionally disruptive" with "no way of creating a positive dialogue."

Conservatives do indeed say stupid shit.
