On the news in Taiwan they use animation to explain things. This is a real, live, actual, honest to goodness teevee broadcast in Taiwan about what is happening with Rick Perry.  Read the translation with glee.

 

Thanks to Grace for the heads up.

Poe’s Law

August 26, 2014 By: Juanita Jean Category: Uncategorized

You know all the times we’ve been punked by a parody website because we believe that Louie Gohmert, Michelle Bachman, or Ted Cruz are capable of doing something unbelievably crazy and we believe that because they are?

There’s Poe’s Law.  Thanks to Deb for finding it.  Yes, it’s the law..

Without a blatant display of humor, it is impossible to create a parody of extremism or fundamentalism that someone won’t mistake for the real thing.

Yes!  It’s not just me.

Poe’s Law says that a smiley face should be a requirement for parody.

Without a winking smiley or other blatant display of humor, it is utterly impossible to parody a Creationist in such a way that someone won’t mistake for the genuine article.

So, next time I believe something not true just because it could be true, everybody holler “Poe’s Law” and we’ll move on from there.

If you want to find out what other internet rules there are, this is kinda interesting.

I agree with #10.  If you have to use more than one exclamation point, you’re drinking too much coffee.

Who Would’ve Thunk It?

I’ll take “Just What Rick Perry Needed” for $500, Alex.

Tom DeLay is urging recently indicted Gov. Rick Perry to convene a special session to consider prosecutorial misconduct, with a particular focus on the Travis County District Attorney’s Public Integrity Unit.

1254860012_tom-delay-290Oh yeah, bring convicted felon Tom DeLay and moral midget to the table to help Rick Perry.  Perry doesn’t call a special session on the nonexistent border crisis or on the very real crisis in children’s health care.  But, yeah, let’s wage a vendetta!

DeLay is insisting that all manner of cahooting is going on.

“He’s already made this political. He’s twisted the bribery law to fit the prosecution he wanted,” DeLay said of Michael McCrum, a San Antonio-based lawyer named to prosecute the case by Republican-appointed District Judge Bert Richardson. “This was started by Rosemary Lehmberg. And she used the system. Yes, she made it look good because she recused herself, but she set it up. She is very much a part of it.”

First off, why do they keep saying bribery?  Rick Perry as not charged with bribery.  Should we look into that?  Are Rick and Tom sending us coded messages?  Is Rick hooked on pain killers and is Tom drinking again?  Will Rick marry Tom and take over the Republican party?  Tune in tomorrow for more Days of Our Delusions.

Second off, Rosemary Lehmberg had nothing to do with this.  Nada.  Nilch.  No witchcraft involved.  She didn’t appoint the special prosecutor, name the grand jury, or select the judge, so how the hell did she “set it up.”  Did she use those magical powers only obtained through years of law school and the Texas heat?

Y’all, if Perry’s indictment brought Tom Damn DeLay back to the surface to lecture us all on morality, then I’m a happy woman.

Oh Bob

Just when you thought that the trial/saga of Bob McDonnell could not possible get any weirder at all, in comes the priest and things get kinky.

Bob says that he’s left his wife and is now living with a priest.  And by “living” I mean oh-what-the-hell.

Last week former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell revealed during his corruption trial that he has left his wife and is now living with a Catholic priest named Wayne Ball, seen above. Father Ball, as it turns out, was once busted for having gay sex in the parking lot of a park.

FatherBall

McConnell has raised the stakes in the Corrupt Republican Governor Sweepstakes.  Scott Walker, Rick Scott, Rick Perry and Chris Christi have some catching-up to do.  Not that I don’t believe they can top that, but I do hope their efforts are as oh-what-the-hell.

Thanks to Brian for the heads up.  

And Now Let’s All Play “Oops! With Rick Perry,” Starring Rick Perry

So, when you file with the Federal Elections Commission as a PAC, you have to fill out a very simple form to establish that PAC.  One of the questions they ask you is, “Are you affiliated with any other PAC or organization?”  You are expected to be able to answer that question without the use of a dictionary, google, notecards, or college algebra.

You got it …

Rick couldn’t answer it.   (This link opens a PDF from the FEC about the DOPE)  Here’s the meat of the matter:

 

Any affiliated or connected organization must be identified on your Statement of Organization. For further guidance on affiliated committees and connected organizations, please refer to 11 CFR §§100.5(g) and 100.6. If there are no other committees or organizations with which you share control or financing, please indicate “None” on Line 6.

So either Rick is hiding something or can’t spell N-O-N-E.  Hey, you in the back, quit giving him hints.

John sent us some Fun with Photoshop.

Well, It Is Back-to-School Week

I suspect someone in Arizona isn’t making the Honor Roll.

Authorities say a 9-year-old girl has accidentally shot her shooting instructor in the head in northwestern Arizona.

Mohave County Sheriff’s officials say the 39-year-old shooting instructor was shot at an outdoor range in Dolan Springs about 10 a.m. Monday.

Gun don’t shoot people, students do.

Thanks to everybody for the heads up.
