See this girl? Her name is Lauren Pierce.
She’s president of the UT College Republicans in Austin, Texas. She wants to remind y’all that you shouldn’t shoot the president because if you do, then he won’t be the WORST president EVER! Lulz!
From ABC News:
Hours after Pennsylvania State Police arrested a 21-year-old Idaho man for allegedly firing a semi-automatic rifle at the White House, the top student official for the College Republicans at the University of Texas tweeted that the idea of assassinating President Obama was “tempting.”
Pierce, the president of the College Republicans at UT Austin, told ABC News the comment was a “joke” and that the “whole [shooting incident] was stupid.” ‘Giggling, she said that an attempted assassination would “only make the situation worse.”’
"Insofar as she’s a representative [of the College Republicans], maybe it shouldn’t be said, but she’s made a positive statement in a way," said Cassie Wright, the group’s vice president.
"I don’t really see anything wrong with it," Wright added. "It’s just a personal comment, not representative of any group. Just freedom of speech, you know?"
So I’m going to make y’all a deal, College Republicans. And by College Republicans, I mean all of you across the country. How about you stop posting the picture of the supposed OWS protester pooping on the cop car, and painting Occupy Wall Street with that broad brush, and I won’t claim the only thing stopping College Republicans from assassinating the president is that he needs to go down in history as the WORST president EVER, mmkay?
Oh, and acting like you need to remind people to not shoot the president isn’t a “positive statement.” It’s a wink and a nod to those tempted. “Like, OMG, I so get it! I totes get why you wanna do it! I mean you shouldn’t, y’know, but COME ON?! Who HASN’T thought about it, amirite?!”</sarcasm>
The Heat Index is a government conspiracy, at least according to El Rushbo:
And they’re playing games with us on this heat wave again. Even Drudge. Drudge getting sucked in here. Gonna be 116 in Washington. No it’s not. It’s going to be like 100, maybe 99. The heat index manufactured by the government to tell you what it feels like when you add the humidity in there, 116. When’s the last time the heat index was reported as an actual temperature. It hasn’t been, but it looks like they’re trying to get away with doing that now. 116.
So it’s not really as hot as you think it is, wimps. Just turn up the AC in your penthouse! That’s what I do! These 22 people that have died thus far are faking it. Or maybe Obama had something to do with it, just to cover up his lies!
Seriously folks, it’s wicked hot. Here’s tips on staying cool from the NYC Office of Emergency Management. And here’s how to stay cool without air conditioning - it even has a method for MacGuyvring a pseudo air conditioner!
Update - Okay, this is Salon right fucking now:
We got trolled, kids. Quote isn’t real, but damn if it doesn’t sound like something she’d say, huh?
Michele Bachmann to Sean Hannity on the Casey Anthony verdict
I honestly thought this quote was fake at first. Like, I just, what even is this. (via la-frida-phile)
Wait… she’s blaming Obama for the Casey Anthony verdict?!??!
I’ll tell you how, Michele. It happens when the prosecution’s entire case hinges on hearsay, circumstantial evidence and testimony like “Well, she wasn’t distraught when i saw her this one time…”. I don’t know if she did it or not, but the Obama administration has like, ZERO to do with it. It was because of lousy investigation work, lack of physical evidence, and shoddy case building. In other words, Michele, THE SYSTEM WORKED EXACTLY AS IT WAS DESIGNED TO DO. Shut up.
“who happens to be white”
I guess basically she’s saying that in Obama’s America, the courts don’t care if white children are murdered. So because we’ve elected our first black president, centuries of culturalization have been reversed and we’re now living in a black supremacist society.
This must be that primo fair-and-balanced anti-mainstream shit that brings in the big bucks for Fox.
SERIOUSLY?! What the fuck goes through her head?! I imagine it goes somethig like this: “YOU GUISE! THE GUBMINT CAN’T DO ANYTHING RIGHT EXCEPT GET AN UNAMERICAN COMMUNIST NAZI MARXIST ELITIST MUSLIM ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT ELECTED WITH THE POWER TO INFILTRATE A FLORIDA JURY IN ONE MURDER CASE!”
I’m pretty sure no one has asked her this question. [I guess I’m probably right there.] I’m also pretty sure this dog-whistling racist thinks in all caps, too. [I stand by that statement.]
And now Obama’s proposing to give them what they want. Awesome.
Overhyped reality neutron starlet Bristol Palin continues to grift across the country shilling her new book about doing whippets on the backs of snowmobiles as a toddler growing up in Alaska, so we know at least one person in America still has a job. Oh look, and she has appeared on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show because her mother works there! We imagine several hundred young ladies will be very excited to get Bristol Palin’s book for Christmas this year from those same creepy Hannity-fan uncles who obsessively forward Tea Party emails to the rest of the family…
Bristol dodges the only question anyone could possibly “care” about, which is “will your mindless grifter mother ever end our hollow agony and tell us whether she is running?” The answer is, probably she will say something in 2026. Until then, buy their family’s books.
Hilarity! By the way, the Palins quit the Mall of America book signing for Bristol halfway through. Total shock, right?
Actual headlines versus Fox News headlines. That’s the Fox News headline above. Here’s the real one:
Here’s another Fox News headline:
The real headline:
Accuracy FAIL. Any of you shocked?
Peter Singleton, Sarah Palin’s right-hand man in Iowa, predicting she’ll run and dashing it with grandiosity.
George Washington and Winston Churchill? Really?!
