Good Monday morning, gentle people – I always have a hard time deciding which putrid little nuggets from Freeperville to share with you, and often skip scrutiny-worthy threads for something gaudy and new to dangle before your eyes.
This week’s offal offering is going to be older stuff from Free Republic that didn’t make the cut for one reason or another, but sometimes old cheese is the best cheese.
First of all – a piece of smackdown heaven I originally posted on the Great Orange Satan few weeks ago.
An oldie but such a goodie it bears repeating:
they deserve, and it’s a thing of beauty.
Freepers are always sending letters to Congresscritters demanding
this or that or the other thing, and they’re generally just filed in the
appropriate receptacle by the Congresscritters staff, along with the
pleas for more UFO research. This time they got a personal response.
I think someone should send this Representative a thank-you note, if
not some bucks.
Oh – and this is a first-time diary, but I just had to share this one
with you :
Washington State Rep Smears Tea Party.
Email Request For An Apology
and His Response.

RE: WA Rep. Geoff Simpson Response For Using Porn Term ‘Teabagger’
During Televised Debate Of I-960 Suspension
After repeated attempts to contact WA State Rep. Geoff Simpson for
an apology/retraction for using a porn term during televised debate on
TVW last week, I finally receieved an email response. You can read the
exhange below. At the bottom of this page, I have included links to the
TVW video, and the email address for Rep. Simpson.

Still waiting for an apology from you, sir, for using a pornographic
word during televised debate, to describe patriotic Americans. In
addition, you also need to apologize for describing the Tea Party as
racist and sexist. You obviously have never been to a Tea Party rally,
or else you would have not made such a slanderous, idiotic statement.
Also, still waiting from the leadership (Reps Chopp and Debolt). The
leadership shouldn’t condone this language, and should take necessary
action to censure/reprimand.
Rep Simpson, please apologize for both slurs ASAP. If you issue a
statement of apology, I will be happy to post it.

He got a reply, all right – probably not the one he was expecting:

Dear Jim –
I don’t think it’s patriotic to fly airplanes into buildings as one
of your tea party members recently did.
(Tommy sprays coffee onto keyboard/monitor)
I find your movement to be
infected with the same selfish, hate-spawned and dangerous ideas that
have plagued civilization from time to time, only to be quelled when
appeals to man’s more patriotic attributes of selflessness, kindness,
compassion and peace have prevailed.
I was puzzled by your objection to my recounting the words of my 90
year old decorated WWII veteran constituent until I heard the more
obscure alternate meaning associated with the term teabag. I believe my
friend was using the term to describe angry, predominantly white,
anti-government individuals who have recently been made prominent by the
media highlighting their hate-filled rhetoric toward all things
Indeed, it is well documented that the originators of your movement
themselves adopted the names “teabag” and “tea bagger” to describe their
anti-government antics. Your manufactured outrage toward me for using
the term that the fathers and mothers of your movement coined for
themselves is tiresome.
I will apologize to you for recounting my friend’s puzzlement about
the selfishness of your movement when you apologize for your hatred,
your selfishness and your lack of compassion toward others.
That is definitelynot gonna buff out.
More recycled raunch after the flying leap…
