Stay Classy, Mitt Romney

And the race to the bottom continues for the Republican candidates, as each tries to out-Bauer the other:

Retired General James “Spider” Marks, who has just been named a new national security adviser to Mitt Romney’s campaign, asserted in a 2005 interview that he would readily torture prisoners to save a soldier’s life or stop a terror bomb, saying: “I’d stick a knife in somebody’s thigh in a heartbeat.”

Unimpressed, Rudy Giuliani immediately released a press statement stating he would “skull fuck a kitten to death in order to save a soldier.”


Adorable jihadi kitten before advanced interrogation techniques.

    This is just a watering down of standard Republicanism, in which you stick a knife in someone’s back without a second thought.

    Bart: Will you swear not to let another living soul get a copy of this photo?

    Milhouse: O.K.

    Bart: Cross your heart and hope to die?

    Milhouse: Yup.

    Bart: Stick a needle in your eye?

    Milhouse: Yup.

    Bart: Jam a dagger in your thigh?

    Milhouse: Yup.

    Bart: Eat a horse-manure pie?

    Milhouse: [gulps, pauses] Yup.

    (emphasis added) All I’m saying is, get a piemaker over to a stable and get them to work. Our soldiers, imperiled by TERROR BOMBS, deserve all the protection they can get.

    Is a “terror bomb” somehow more dangerous than a garden-variety bomb? Perhaps there are nooooances we are missing here. Maybe the extra special really scary “terror bomb” demands a special response.

    Someone (I don’t know who, maybe Sullivan, maybe here, hell,maybe Wonkette) has mentioned that some headlines are sounding as if they had been written at The Onion. It is true they are absurd, but seeing some of the real headlines is actually … disturbing. It is as though children (or very childish people) were actually running the government … oh wait …
    And then there’s Jonah Goldberg positing the benefits of an attack on the Soviet Union after WW2.

    *sighs*
    And Romney was the Republican I said I was going to vote for if someone put a gun to my head and said “choose one.” Of course he also said we should double Guantanomo.

    I still think Romney is an insincere fake who talks tough to get elected, while Guiliani is the genuine article. Give me the slippery fake any day. ^^

    Dreggas,

    I can’t really take credit for the Chihuahua joke. David Letterman adlibbed that line on his show twenty+ years ago. He had a bat scientist (I don’t know the proper title for that field) on and the fellow had several bats with him that he brought out the intersperse with some interesting bat stories. The last one was, IIRC, a fox-bat that was the size of a small dog. Letter took one look at the thing that was hanging on the scientist’s arm looking at him and said:

    “Good Lord! What have you done to that Chihuahua?!”

    At which point the bat instantly became a weird mutant Mexican Hairless in my mind’s eye. I imagine that the world became a brighter place fromthe million+ people simultaneoulsy laughing at the same thing. It as that funny. It’s stuck with me ever since. I’ve told this story to friends many times, but I never dreamed I’d get the a proper setup to re-use it properly.

    John Cole will surely get one thousand years off any time in purgatory for setting up a situation where I could use that line in “conversation.”

    That reminds me of the most hilarious line I’ve ever read from the Onion (along the lines of “so offensive, it’s hilarious”:
    “They say we get the government we deserve, but I don’t recall ever knife-raping any retarded nuns.”

    2nd place is “Special Olympics T-Ball Stand Pitches Perfect Game” but it lacks the grotesque hilarity of the former.

    I however promise I will not be caught harrassing young men on the internet, tapping my foot in a restroom or getting my meth on while getting a “massage”.

    2) Is this the new excuse Republican party activists will start using when caught with TEH GAY? I was trying to stop a terror attack?

    You can add mine to the pot.

    Maybe this explains the fear of ass rape by IslamoHorde that seems to be prevalent among the fRighties. Unless it isn’t really a fear of rape. Maybe its the realization that the NSA will never show up at the door and ask them to save the country: “We have a terrorist in custody. He knows where fifteen dirty bombs are hidden but he says he’ll only tell us if he gets to make sweet love to a right-wing blogger.”

    So much for that Metal of Freedom.

    Yeah, same here. That’s got to be one of the most adorable-looking kittens I’ve ever seen. And so innocent and vulnerable-looking, too.

    The caption really captures the absurdly pointless and foolish heartlessness of Mitt Romney and all the other Republican candidates. “Double-Gitmo”…what a bunch of fucking horseshit.

    Don’t let that “I surrender!” pose fool you. That Ninja kitten possesses cat-like reflexes and could easily bat that handgun out of the hands of the aggressor as well as catch the bullet with its teeth. It should be trussed up like Hannibal Lectur. Never let your guard down around these vicious beasts for a moment. Consider yourselves warned.

    Whoa! Maybe they were right when they told me all that acid would cause flashbacks some day. But, Jesus H. Christ–35 years later just seems pretty damn unlikely.
