Fwd: Quote of the Week

LA Times said it - Quote of the Week

Who would have thought that the LA TIMES would even allow it on their pages??

Quote Of The Week:

"Frankly, I don't know what it is about California , but we seem to have a strange urge to elect really obnoxious women to high office. I'm not bragging, you understand, but no other state, including Maine , even comes close. When it comes to sending left-wing dingbats to Washington , we're number one. There's no getting around the fact that the last time anyone saw the likes of Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein, and Nancy Pelosi, they were stirring a cauldron when the curtain went up on 'Macbeth'. The three of them are like jackasses who happen to possess the gift of blab. You don't know if you should condemn them for their stupidity or simply marvel at their ability to form words."

--columnist Burt Prelutsky , LA Times

Um... Sarah Palin? Michelle Bachmann? Virginia Foxx? Any one of them has enough crazy for match up with all three of California's trifecta of elected ladies. Not to mention Steve King, Boehner, etc etc.

Also love the misogyny here. Those ladies need to know their place! The nerve of them, running for office and speaking their minds like equal citizens!

I like how Prelutzky includes the two REPUBLICAN
senators from Maine.

Once again, a sign of how deranged the GOP has
become. Moderates will not be tolerated. Keep it
up, guys. You're still not Aryan-pure enough.

The only thing amazing here is that Burt Prelutzky is 1) published in the LA times and 2) apparently, still alive. Clearly, the dark side is strong with him. Seriously. Go to Renew America and take a look.

This sexist mysoginistic reichwing pig posts all the time at World Nut Daily and speaks at the CPAC conventions. That's all one really needs to know.

Love the sexism, Burt! Why don't you oink your way out of your @$$ so that you can find out that it's the 21st Century already, and women, GASP SHUDDER PUKE, have a place a the table.

I can understand that rightards don't esp like Feinstein, Boxer or Pelosi, and I have my own issues some of the time with those politicians, but it's NOT simply because they are women. Plus one can disagree completely with them on their political viewpoints, but stupid they ain't.

I agree with the first Anon post, with Republic women like Palin, Bachmann & Foxx, Perlutsky should adhere to the adage: those who live in glass houses should not cast stones. Talk about the triumverate of stupidity: those three take the cake. Of course, all three are hostile aggressive NUTTY bullies, so jerk-off like Perlutsky is undoubtedly "turned on" by them, esp because an intellectual midget (who probably has something else tiny) like him wouldn't feel threatened by any of their mental prowess... because they have none.

Well, there you have it: Republic male chauvinistic pig sexism at it's finest. I don't know how Republic women can look themselves in the mirror after listening to mysogynist like this. But then again, cognitive dissonance is a way of life with wingtards.

I find myself in an interesting conundrum...I am an evangelical Christian who is studying for the ministry, yet I to agree that the behavior of the Republican party of late has been very disturbing to me. VERY disturbing to me.

ferschitz said...

Thank you for posting history145. Quite honestly, I come from a very evenagelical Christian family, but I simply deplore how the Republican party has been behaving over the past 2 decades. In particular, I deplore how Christian fundamentalist Republicans behave, which includes ALL of my family. I have to distance myself from them because I do not personally believe in what the Republican party is doing, how they talk, how they present themselves and how they treat others.

IMO it is not behaving as Jesus taught. I see them as being used and manipulated by cynical, wealthy individuals who use purported "Christian" mouthpieces, like Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh, who peddle the most inflamatory, nasty stuff. My family is totally addicted (I am using that word deliberately) to rightwing hate radio and tv, and they parrot back a lot of nasty, incendiary, inflamatory junk, which I feel in no way represents how "good Christians" should think, feel, behave, act and do unto others.

I think it's really sad, and a very disturbing state of affairs.

Admittedly, I can get pretty nasty in my replies on this blog, and that's probably not the best thing to do. But it comes out of a deep well of frustration at the ongoing nasty, racist, sexist, homophobic, uncaring, attacking junk that is constantly pumped out by rightwingers forwarding these emails.

Good luck with your study for the ministry. I know that there are progressive evengelical christians who are not Republicans and who also decry this kind of behavior. I don't have any websites to direct you to, but I know that there are progressive Christians websites out there. You might want to check them out.

Best to you in your studies.

I'm sure Meg Whitman loves this.

As a Californian Ex-pat, let me suggest that electing kooks in that state isn't gender specific: Bono, Ar-nuld, Dana "I drank the bong water" Rohrabacher, B-1 Bob, Jerry, etc.

Tootseye said...

If Meg Whitman loves this than she's even a bigger dolt than I thought she was. Any woman with any common sense should be offended by this tripe.

history145: I'm an evangelical Christian and a political moderate. Basing your political beliefs on your religious ones doesn't have to, and I believe shouldn't, make you partisan.

A blog you should check out (that I usually but don't always agree with) is <a href="http://slacktivist.typepad.com/>Slacktivist</a>.
