Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Return of the son of Monster Magnate edition

HiBoys

OK – coffee break’s over – back on your heads!

Iso suits on, people – when I crank open that airlock door, all kinds of Freeperati insanity backlog is gonna spill out. Elspeth is standing by with hoses, just in case.

First up –Drunk or stoopid?? You make the call!

Rick Perry’s ‘truly bizarre’ speech: Was he drunk?
TheWeek.com ^ | October 31, 2011 | TheWeek

Posted on Tuesday, November 01, 2011 4:56:27 AM byiowamark

Texas Gov. Rick Perry raised some eyebrows — and questions about his sobriety — with anunusually expressive speech to a conservative group in Manchester, N.H., on Friday. In the speech, Perry ditched his typically reserved style and instead employed “the sort of tics, facial contortions, mimes, and muggings that one would expect from a comic performer,”says Thomas Lane atTalking Points Memo. The media scuttlebutt is largely based on an anonymously posted YouTube compilation of “highlights” from the speech (watch the clip below), but even some in attendance were perplexed. “It was different,” Manchester Mayor Ted Gatsas said. AnotherGOP operative said it reminded him of Democrat Howard Dean’s race-ending “scream” in 2004. Perry’s campaign’s response? The speech simply proves that Perry is “passionate about the issues he talks about.”

The reaction: Perry’s performance was “truly bizarre,”says Libby Spencer atThe Impolitic. “He comes off as pretty well drunk. Or drugged.” Yes, and though it’s not a crime to be “pretty publicly lit,” it’s almost certainly bad politics for a presidential hopeful, says Andrew Sullivan atThe Daily Beast. Well, I doubt he’s drunk, says Josh Feldman atMediaite. But his exuberance is “fun to watch.” I bet “Alec Baldwin will appreciate the material for his next Perry impersonation. Look, “we’re not saying that he’sdefinitely drunk,”says Max Read atGawker, “we’re just saying, watch the whole thing” and judge for yourself. Have a look:

To: iowamark
The audience provided the uncomfortable, sympathetic laugh track. It was only missing circus music.

After watching that, you could onlyhope he was drunk. If that’s how he expresses “passion” for issues, as his campaign would have you believe, imagine the potential SOTU addresses.

BTW, it’s probably not a good idea to invoke The Alamo and “victory or death” in a campaign. How’d that work out for those at The Alamo?

If you had a speck of decency, you’d be ashamed of your reprehensible comments on Perry threads. Since you don’t and aren’t, we’re left to conclude that your unconscionable vitriol is not simply the result of heated political rhetoric during primary season but is rather part of your character.

No, he’s not drunk, he’s clowning around, maybe trying a little too hard to be amusing. No, this non-story will not hurt him in any way. Yes, you Perry haters and Cainiacs are way off base and trying to make something out of nothing and doing your candidate no favors.

I didn’t think he was drunk either…but then I thought if he would have been drunk, he at least might have an excuse. LOL

I don’t believe he was drunk either. But if this is how he conducts himself when he is supposedly relaxed then heaven help us all should he ever be confronted with real life problems as a President, like a nuclear crazed despot from say, Pakistan and Iran talking about nuking Israel or even the US! His line then might be something like ‘can’t we all just get along’ (and giggling all the while saying it).

“It’s not looking good statewide. My city will be a solid YES, but that’s a result of affluent, educated residents.”

Same info here. I’m in Cuyahoga County, and IF the City of Cleveland gets any kind of turnout, plus the Union fools who have no jobs (the Unions priced themselves out of the auto plant business here), but they still are PRO-UNION, even though they are un-employed, PLUS, every Teacher, Fireman, Policeman, and City, County, and State worker will vote NO…

The ONLY hope for passage of Issue 2 is that TAXPAYERS turn out heavily to the Polls.

What makes you think that teachers, firemen, policemen, and city, county, and state workersaren’ttaxpayers?

Did I miss a memo?

To: marstegreg

I just got back from voting at 4:00 and I was #360 at my polling place. Didn’t seem any crowded than usual. Did see one union smoker using the ash tube thingy outside the polling place door and I told him to get back from the entrance.

Did he laugh at you before taking another drag, or just flip his cig at your crotch?

The weather is outstanding, so I expect a 30%-35% turnout; the BIGGER, the better for Passage.

I honestly dont think that supporters of SB5 did enough ( cant compete with thug money ) to get their message out.
But all in all, I’m greatful for Sarah Palin’s FB announcement on it

We’ll get to the results of that endorsement in the next thread:Sarah Palin – Kingmaker!

as well as Rush and Mark Levin talking about it.

Correct, but the tallies are the reverse of what they should be in the counties that are in; the trend here is easy to see. Issue 2 will fail, and SB5 will be repealed.

To: RKBA Democrat

The VA GOP has one major problem … age! I quit the county committee some years ago because as I looked around, the ‘young guys’ when I first joined all had gray hair .. no new young blood. And you just can’t do well in elections without young, new blood. They’re the ones who will walk door to door, do the lit drops, work the polls, etc. The old folks who’ve been doing it forever seem to like the committee meetings to get together with (literally) old friends. Nice, but that doesn’t win elections.

Something has to stir up the youth vote, but to most of the 20-somethings I know and see around here, “gay rights” is the civil rights of their generation, so they’re not about to vote for the GOP.

Support Ohio’s Issue 2 and Kentucky’s Todd P’Pool Next Tuesday

bySarah Palinon Friday, 04 November 2011 at 13:03

Next Tuesday, November 8, there are elections in several states. Here are two great ways you can get involved.

OHIO’S ISSUE 2

As a proud former union member and the wife, daughter, and sister of union members, I’m encouraging you to learn the facts about Issue 2 in Ohio. To the hard working, patriotic, selfless union brothers and sisters in Ohio and throughout our country: I believe that Issue 2 is needed reform. It will help restore fairness to Ohio taxpayers and help balance the budget.

As a former card-carrying IBEW sister married to a proud former Laborers, IBEW, and later USW member, I’m encouraging Ohioans to vote YES on Issue 2. Get the facts at http://www.BetterOhio.org.

KENTUCKY’S TODD P’POOL FOR ATTORNEY GENERAL

Todd P’Pool is a new conservative leader for Kentucky. Todd is a dedicated public servant in Hopkins County and a community leader focused on building a better future for Kentucky. We can count on Todd P’Pool as Attorney General to stand up and defend our Constitution, to take on the entrenched special interests, fight against Obamacare, and stop Obama’s EPA from destroying jobs.

Please join me in supporting Todd P’Pool for Attorney General. Learn more about Todd at http://www.toddppool.com.

– Sarah Palin

Austin Stangle We’d like to support YOU…

But you’re a quitter.

Jenny Sanderson McKeigue Definitely voting yes on Issues 2 and 3. We voted for CHANGE last year when electing Kasich. We voted for solutions not the union-friendly Strickland. It’s only been a year since the historic 2010 elections and the momentum of putting this great state on a better course will continue…with the passing of Issues 2 and 3.

So – how did that work out for ya? No shit? Sucks to be you.

Paul Huelsman ‎@Jodie Brown thanks ive been watching out for sarah for awile as you will notice. I see this guy is gone. He might be lingering around.Liberals usually are they are taking names black listing us all to be harassed.

Yeah – cause it’s so sooper-sekrit double-naught spy of you to post this with a hot link to your Facebook profile, Paul Huelsman .

I’ll get Soros right on it, you paranoid Palinista.

Public schools inforce a class warefare system i fell victim to it in my youth by answering questionare then refused a education because i was a hate mongering christian conservative. I was selected to fail as hard as i tried in until someone blew a wistle on liberal counselors intentionally ruining a childs education by if you take a count of children in basic courses or held back everyone is either christian or conservative or republican. Do the count they are still selecting children to fail purposely!

Needs moar home-schooling.

Justin Meadows Nope. Issue 2 is going down. You lose.

(But yes…please run!)

If only.

D.j. Albanese Seems like it has gone down in FLAMES! Bad loss.

Quang Do To the people who voted No on Ohio’s Issue 2,

So I’m driving home from work today (thank god I still have my job) and get behind a small red Honda with a “2012” sticker on the back window with the zero in the 2012 indicating the Obama logo. Trust me, I tried my hardest to get beside this vehicle and actullay did but very briefly as I had to watch the traffic and the stop and go’s that come along with it. What I saw in that brief moment were 2 young morons sharing a box of cookies. It was then that I had to stop and their lane continued on ahead of me.I then glanced at their licence plate frame and noticed it said “UC Santa Cruz!” That pretty solidified the fact these were 2 Obama drones.

Sadly, all I wanted to do was help them by telling them some idiot had put an Obama sicker on their back window. LOL

    I’ll bet. You told that steelworker where to stick it. Sure, he was 6 feet tall with hands like baked hams, and he could kill people using only his neck, but you marched right up to him, slapped him with your glove, and said I CHALLENGE YOU SIR! and he started crying and ran away.

    I am still laughing too hard at “almost pulled it off.” I do love good college humor.
    Thanks for the return, TT! I always find the losing of an election to be fascinating. Progressives skulk and wonder what happened. Conservatives immediately bring out 2 arguments:
    1. Non-existent voter fraud and intimidation
    2. Their special brand of elitism, manifested as absolute wonderment that a majority could disagree with them.
    I am a Ohioan, and SB5 never stood a chance. Kasich was just like Walker, in that through the whole campaign he not once mentioned this as a goal. Then the fifth fucking bill on the docket ( behind privatization of an economic development team, 2 audit bills and a resolution to modernize insurance actuarial treatment of the pension fund ) is a bill to destroy collective bargaining rights. Before any jobs bills. Before any budget bills. Before anything of substance.
    Ohioans reacted to that in a way I am proud of. The question remains how long our memory will be when he is up for re-election.

  6. MapleStreet says:

    So then, like, this guy who noticed the Obama sticker was courting road rage – and all the trigger it takes to make him go ballistic is a 2010 sticker?
    And for Perry’s bizarre speech, remember when the right wing went nuts because Clinton likely smoked a joint while in England?

  8. Between the internet courage on display from (allegedly) ordering smokers around in a smoking area or dangerously driving to (almost) harass two Obama supporters on the road, these right wingers sure are all for (nearly) not banning people who speak out.
