Wisco Pride

I can't say I've ever heard a story of a Golden Gopher getting drunk and stopping traffic.

Then again, Minnesota just elected (and that term is used very loosely) Al Franken to the UNITED STATES SENATE, for SBJ sake. Yikes.

Here's the story, which I noticed when reading this.

Post-post Edit: Had to add a link to this picture.

Ooooooo!1! KERTWANG!1!

Take THAT, Al Franken! Because I knew highly-qualified Rep. Sonny Bono (R-CA) and you, sir, are no SONNY BONO!1!

I also knew Esteemed Statesman Fred ("Gopher") Grandy (R-IA) and you, Mr. Franken sir, are not qualified to lick Teh Lurve-juices from his Man-Boat (if you get my drift)!1!

I also knew ... wait ... what was the name of that Republican guy who worked with a chimp but made it to the White House anyway?

O yeah! Dick Cheney!1!

I knew him too, sir, and you are no HIM!1!

Also, I should point out that the preferred (actually, pretty standard) wingnut method is to put scare quotes around the word you don't like; thus:

Then again, Minnesota just "elected" ... Al Franken ... etc.

Until you learn that much, Nic Limbaugh, don't quit yer day job to go into political punditry!

I was wondering how long it would be before somebody went back to good ole' standard Bush bashing...8 year habits are hard to break.

But no comment on the Drunken state of the Badger? No comment on the quality of the fermentation process of the berries? Come on, man!

Glaven beat me to the Reagan/Bush joke. Dangit.

I'd like to get ahold of some of those cherries.

Sure, we Minnesotans elected a stand-up comedian as senator and we had a pro wrestler for governor for a while. But we never believed in Eugene McCarthy and the HUAC witch hunts; Wisconsin will never live down electing that nutjob.

...I'm sure you'll be back with a correction soon, Steve.

Oh, and he's not a comedian any more. He's going to work hard for the people--all the people--of Minnesota. And be very serious. No smiling.

Glaven Q. Heisenberg said...

Pfffttt! Why would I comment on that other stuff?

I can't speak for everybody, but I think I speak for everybody when I say I come here for the political insights and occasion kertwangs leveled at that d*ckhead Glaven because, man, THAT guy gets on EVERONE's nerves! He's worse than Minnesota under the stewarsdship of Jesse (Teh Body) Ventura (whom Teh Marcy also has the thigh sweats for, I hear).

SteveQ said...

Boy, do I need to get back on the caffeine. I meant Joe, not Eugene. And to top it off, Franken was a stand-up for maybe 2 months - he's a satirist and skit performer.

Glaven Q. Heisenberg said...

So, Nic, you forced SteveQ before your committee to make him publicly apologize for the innocent and understandable mistake he made in a previous comment?


And yes I mean JENNY McCarthy!
