Quote of the Week (Early Contender)


"The president is personally popular. Pity the fool who paid for a poll to figure that out... This change, my friends, is being delivered in a teabag, and that's a wonderful thing."

-- Pretend leader of the Republican Party and human punchline Michael Steele

Is the GOP even aware of how big of a joke it is making out of itself these days?

Did nobody inform Mr. Steele that the teabaggers have since come and gone, only indicated by the line of 50 year old white people lining up to wash their faces in the restroom?

If a rhetorical question falls in the woods, does God hate the gays?

It's getting to the point where the nation grows weary of accidental nutsack jokes.

Who ever thought it could come to this?

Jeremy said...

What the hell is that load of gibberish supposed to even mean?

It almost makes me miss the days of "fool me twice... I won't be fooled again." At least then I knew what common phrase the man was butchering.

That was their plan all along! To remove ball jokes from the equation all together. I'll miss you ball jokes, I really will....

I move to rename the Republican Party the Teabagging Party.

Where did you find that picture from Steele's vaudeville days?

I'm not proud of it, but recently I was watching CNN and noticed on the ticker that Michael Steele had said something along the lines of "The time for Republican apologies is over."

My only question is this:

When, exactly, did it begin?

Trouble said...

Is that even supposed to make sense? He realy just strung a few sentences togther and try to make them sound intelligent.
Meh. His own party is limiting his power so I would be a little flustered too...

I love the way Steele managed to work in a Mr. T reference. He's really at the cutting edge of pop culture.

I'm sorry, but the party that managed to, cover up a pedophile, get us into a disaster of a war based on a total lie, have the rest of the world perceive us as all believing the world is created in 7 days about 6000 years ago with hocus-pocus as well as being ignorant red-neck, homophobic ass-holes has no fucking right to say a damn thing about anything.

This guy is basically the male equivalent to Condeleeza Rice.

I just wish I could hear him say "pity the fool" a la Mr. T.
