LET THE CRAZINESS BEGIN!
Michele “Kelly” Bachmann and Rick “Governor Secession” Perry
“Look Marcus, America’s crying!”
“And I told reality to ‘get thee away from me’ with all your truths and facts. I’m pushing pure, uncut craziness here, by God, and I’ve got no time for you!”
“I wonder if Tiger’s still looking for a caddy.”
SHE SAID IT
On NBC’s “Meet the Press,” David Gregory pressed Bachmann on a question asked during Thursday’s Republican debate in Iowa about the role wives play in a heterosexual marriage. During the debate, moderator Byron York asked Bachmann whether she was a “submissive” wife, citing a 2006 speech in which Bachmann said she decided to study tax law because her husband wanted her to do so, even though she did not like the subject.
At the time, Bachmann said: “My husband said, now you need to go and get a post-doctorate degree in tax law. Tax law, I hate taxes. Why should I go and do something like that? The Lord says, ‘Be submissive.’ Wives, you are to be submissive to your husbands.”
Gregory played the sound bite and asked, “Is that your view for women in America? Is that your vision for them?”
“Submission — that word means respect,” Bachmann replied.
Gregory said that in his discussions with his own wife, the two words are not equivalent.
“In our house, it is,” Bachmann said.
Gregory asked: “His word goes?”
“Well, both of our words go,” Bachmann said. “We respect each other. We’re a good team together.”
HE SAID IT
“What I brought forward, I thought was a rational, established, credible, strong record of results, based on experience governing — a two-term governor of a blue state,” former GOP presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty said Sunday morning. “But I think the audience, so to speak, was looking for something different.” Translation: “They [voters] want crazy and by God, with Bachmann and now Perry in the race, they’ve got it in spades!”
“Did you know that Ice Cube, Ice-T and I are distant cousins?”
“Oh f**k. It’s that damn Cornel and Tavis again.”
I guess the old hockey player Tim “Mr Charisma” Pawlenty found a fight he couldn’t see himself winning so he threw in the towel. Or whatever it is that old hockey players throw in when they get their asses handed to them by two certified loons (Bachmann and Ron Paul).
Based on what my Texas family friends tell me, we’re about to bear witness to weirdness on a level seldom seen outside a carnival tent Rick Perry For President. I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait!
Am I the only one who wishes President Obama and the Democrats would try turning the GOP’s negative connotation of the Affordable Care Act into a positive by fully embracing “Obamacare”?
Here’s the question I would have asked Newt Gingrich at Thursday night’s debate – “Sir, if you stay in the race until the very end, what are the odds of you weighing 400 pounds by then?”
For me, the worst part of this story Jets’ Plaxico Burress talks shooting, prison in HBO interview is that Burress publicly admits to not knowing who NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg was at the time of his incident.
Based on what we now know about the Dodgers’ finances under the McCourts’, I’m guessing that both Joe Torre’s wife and daughter threatened to leave him if he stayed on as the team’s manager.
JUST FOR THE HELL OF IT!
“Hmm. Which ‘stick’ do I use on this hole? Hey Stevie, what do you suggest here? The nine-iron or the nine-incher? Stevie? Stevie! Where you at man?
