Ahh, rebranded Republicans. They'll run Rick Santorum or Ted Cruz or Sarah Palin or some random guy from the local cackle factory in the next election. "We don't hate everyone -- we just want everyone dead!"

I have wonderful memories of branding when I lived in Wyoming. I always got the horse that wanted to go play in the creek bed instead of cut, but any day spent falling off a horse and flirting with closed head trauma is good day in my book! Great fun with lots of noise when the yearlings bellowed, the smell of burning hair, and we followed it up with a big Rocky Mountain Oyster feast.

What could possible go wrong with branding?

Just sayin'.

Don't you DARE shoot that duck.

"Until we understand Unity and Omerta.." Yes, because making the Republican party more like the Mafia is the road to success. Sigh.

I love how the Iraq war is apparently now a thing liberals were roaming at the mouth for.
I feel like freeperville is filled with agent provocateurs. Or at the least really should be.

Who DOESN'T have an interociter?
I've been using mine to make hot chocolate!

Tommy, I'm glad you're still doing these posts. The Obsession is one of my first stops on Monday morning, and my week doesn't feel complete if the post isn't there.

Fantastic spew this morning. My favorite is, "I doubt even most liberal women felt comfortable w Fluke’s comments." And how using that much birth control must, ipso facto, mean that she's "servicing" many men. Whoo boy.

TommyT, you're my hero for doing this distasteful but necessary job. Next time you feel like giving up, let us know and we'll chip in for some new hip-waders.

It's staggering to think that the freeperati aren't just Stephen Colbert-style jokesters, that these knuckleheads really believe what they're posting. Most of them, at least. And the way they can pivot from "Karl Rove is our latter day prophet" to "Karl Rove is the anti-christ" (for example) is nothing short of amazing. The binary nature of their thinking makes Univac look dithering.

Thanks Tommy. And please don't shoot the duck.

They are taking a great American sport and using its genuine athletic competition and mocking the conservative movement. [February 21, 2013 11:19:31 PM by OKRA2012]
I always thought professional wrestling was mocking the Tea Party since the '60s--back before there was a Tea Party. Sort of pre-mocking if you will, since there clearly wouldn't be enough time for sufficient mockery without a head start.
Wow I am so tired of hearing/reading Republicans and other conservatives arguing among themselves in the hearing of the Dems and the entire world.
A shanda fur die goyim.
Please can we get a simple, coherent message together and shut up until we do? [February 22, 2013 4:48:10 AM by firebrand]
I've been begging for that for a long time.


Go ahead. Shoot the duck. I never liked him anyway. (See, that's how to deal with hostage takers.) But please, for the sake of the planet, nay the universe, don't hit the auto-destruct on the containment building.


The scariest thing about the Freepers is they vote.

Schrodinger's duck is at the same time shot and non-shot.
That's just how I roll....


I definitely loved reading your post. You have a great deal of wisdom and really gave me something to think about with a couple points you touched on.
