Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – “Be of good chair” edition

Morning, everybody, and happy славный день прав работников, comrades!

Let’s all suit up and get the inevitable over with. One of the drawbacks of having a Monday morning posting slot is when something entertianing happens in the middle of the week. By the time my post hits, the entertaining event has been hammered, masticated, ridiculed, and generally done-to-death by every wag with a blog, talk show, or late-night snark fest (hence last week’s bonus Obsession).

This week, everybody and his/her dog has been Eastwooding up a storm, and even some character called David Atkins over at some blog called Digby has gotten in on the freak show that is Freeperville.

Well, nobody nutpicks like your master nutpicker, so if you’ve not hit Peak Eastwood yet, follow me into the iso chamber for the Clint Eastwood Appreciation Thread!

At first, of course, the Freeperati were all moist in the panties, superimposing memories about the salad days of Dirty Chairry over the spectacle that had Ryan squirming in his chair like a home-schooler at a sex-ed class, and Romney giggling in hysteria backstage:

Damn that was a great speech. This guy is ALL CLASS as are most conservatives.

Yep, classy guy and that stchick (sp?) with an empty chair talking
with Dear Reader was brilliant, funny and made fun of the ijit,

Almost fell out of my chair when he leaned over and said: (Paraphrasing) “What? Tell Romney What?” “He can’t do to himself.”

Auto-fellatio?

A must see!

I can see tomorrows headlines now:

“Senile, stuttering, racist old white man talks to empty chair.”

And it’s already starting. The Madcow just said his speech were the incoherent ramblings of someone with alzheimers.

Love Eastwood, but having him speak was a mistake. Sure, he got some
laughs, but the media will have a field day with his performance. He
will be ridiculed to no end by the likes of Maher, Letterman, Conan,
and, of course, the media.

That was rather embarrassing. Clint *was* a good actor but his
politics have always been a bit squishy and he just seemed to be taking
up valuable speaking time. Was anyone really moved by this rambling
hem-haw of a alzheimer moment?

I’d bet Sarah Palin would have energized the crowd twice as well and got off more zingers.

Paul Ryan’s speech in 3 words

Posted on Thursday, August 30, 2012 12:15:36 PM by Uncle Slayton

1. Dazzling

At least a quarter of Americans still don’t know who Paul Ryan
is, and only about half who know and have an opinion of him view him
favorably. So, Ryan’s primary job tonight was to introduce himself and
make himself seem likeable, and he did that well. The personal parts of
the speech were very personally delivered, especially the touching parts
where Ryan talked about his father and mother and their roles in his
life. And at the end of the speech, when Ryan cheered the crowd to its
feet, he showed an energy and enthusiasm that’s what voters want in
leaders and what Republicans have been desperately lacking in this
campaign.

Sarah Palin endorses third-party run if Akin won’t drop out


The Washington Examiner ^

Posted on Wednesday, August 22, 2012 2:08:00 AM by Publius804

Sarah Palin endorsed a third-party candidacy against Rep. Todd Akin,
R-Mo., if he persists in his refusal to drop out of the general election
campaign after making startling comments about rape and abortion.

“We’ve
got to take back the Senate and Missouri is a must-win state,” Palin
told Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren. “The way we do that is to have
someone like Sarah Steelman be able to run — even if it’s as a
third-party candidate — to be able to run and help us take this back.”
Palin endorsed Steelman in the primary, which was regarded as showdown
for the privilege of challenging the deeply-unpopular Sen. Claire
McCaskill, D-Mo.

The former Alaska governor reiterated her
support for a third-party run when considering how conservatives should
respond if Akin does not drop out before the state prints the ballots
for the general election.

“Maybe it is a third-party run of Sarah
Steelman — that I could get behind,” she said. “Granted, ‘the status
quo has got to go’ [Steelman’s campaign motto] would be an odd name for a
third party, but we’ll coin it, we’ll adopt it, we’ll run with it if
that’s what it takes in order to get a common sense, constitutional,
happens-to-be-pro-life woman in Missouri to clean up this mess that has
been created and at the same time take back the Senate.”

****************************************

This may be the only way to salvage the seat. Akin is making life very difficult, he hurts the party and the pro-life cause.

I saw Sarah Palin on Greta’s show Tuesday night.
Palin was VERY ticked off about Akin remaining in the race. Her words
were terse, and I don’t think she smiled at all during the entire
interview. Very unusual for a typical Sarah Palin-Greta Van Sustern
interview…

The Moron Senator has been bought and paid for by the Communist

inflammatory inappropriate drivel. He is committing political suicide
and must have been paid to do it.
Abortion and pro life is a compassion
and morals issue and he is a moron. Just talk about the 50 MILLION DEAD
BABIES from Americans abortions, then shut up.

    Palin’s gravy train has ended. Don’t you think, given the Rove interview in Businessweek, that they paid Palin a good stiff fee to attack Akin?

    No, poppet, he’s been saying it for years, except that until he ran for an office that actually mattered nobody gave a flying fuck. Honestly. He’s not even the dumbest man in Congress right now, so where everybody gets off acting like he tarnished the noble conservative cause I will never understand.
    A.

  3. Zeno says:

    “The Moron Senator” isn’t a senator at all. Akin is a U.S. Representative who is the GOPnominee for U.S. Senate (until and unless they figure a way to crowbar him out). It’s typical of the Freeper crowd that they seldom seem to know who or what they’re talking about. Incorrect attributions are par for this junk-strewn course.

  4. MapleStreet says:

    HELP!!! I AGREE WITH THE FREEPERS!!!!
    Here in NE MO, the conservatives are still rallying around Akin. I couldn’t agree more that Akin has disgraced himself and is a liability for the RNC in general.
    As I posted on another thread, Akin has issued a YouTube “apology” (well not really an apology, but he says that he has 2 daughters, believes that rape victims should be treated with dignity, knows that people who are raped can get pregnant… just never says why he made the comment.) An aquaintance posted the URL on facebook. Another person commented. I simply posted that I could give Akin some slack on “legitimate” as poor wording, but that his following pseudoscientific explanation shows that he had thought about it and that WAS what he believed.
    In the following exchange (3 messages) my foil’s argument came down to 1) McCaskill wasn’t pro-life (I can understand that) and that Akin made a “ignorant” (my foil’s words) statement. But that my foil also makes ignorant statements so that makes Akin just like him.

  5. MapleStreet says:

    RE: Sally Kohn
    It isn’t that I and Sally Kohn could find a whole lot to agree on.
    But the Freepers don’t even find Faux to be conservative enough???

  6. thebewilderness says:

    Covenant Theological Seminary, sometimes known as Covenant Seminary, is the denominational seminary of the Presbyterian Church in America
    That is where Akin learned what he repeated about “legitimate” rape. Thousands of people repeat this myth as fact all over the country because it is repeated over and over by counselors and ministers who were taught it at Seminary.
    Religious organizations cannot be trusted with the education of our children. This disgusting myth is one of many reasons why.

  7. MapleStreet says:

    thebewilderness – here’s a list of some of Rep. Akin’s (who happens to sit on the science committee) hit parade
    http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/2012/08/todd-akins-greatest-hits.php
    Both he and Paul Ryan were among the 227 co-sponsors of H.R. 3 (112th congress) No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act. Passed the house 5/4/2011 and placed on the Senate Calendar where it has apparently died.
    http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/D?d112:2:./temp/~bdT6r6::|/home/LegislativeData.php?n=BSS;c=112|
    Included was the introduction of the idea of “forcible rape”. In fact, his sponsorship of this bill and elaboration of the pseudoscience of his position on “legitimate” rape both make me distrust his apology – showing prior thought on the matter.
    However, please don’t lump all religious folk together. They are a quite diverse group of people.

  8. thebewilderness says:

    There is no lumping of people. There is a simple declaration in favor of separation of Church and State. Education is the responsibility of the State. Us, the public. Religious organizations such as the Presbyterian Seminar cannot be trusted not to substitute myth for science and even for Biblical writings. Therefore they cannot be trusted to teach and should not be accredited.

  9. armored goldfish says:

    I have done some reading on rhetoric. Apostrophe is defined by rhetoric.byu.edu as “Turning one’s speech from one audience to another. Most often, apostrophe occurs when one addresses oneself to an abstraction, to an inanimate object, or to the absent.” It sounds like that was what Clint was trying to do, but it sound like not even the freepers (that seems to be the ‘even the liberal . . .’ of the 21st century–how far right has this country gotten?) understood it.
