PoopGate Underscores Seven Years of Wingnut Suffering

While many of us libtards have seen the Obama years as a welcome respite from the non-stop stream of catastrophe and turmoil that marked the era of PBO’s predecessor, that view is not universally shared.

For wingnuts, the Obama years have brought fresh outrages on a daily basis. These stinging slaps in the face include the president taking the unprecedented liberty of putting his feet on his desk, refusing to put his hand over his heart during the pledge of allegiance, not wearing an American flag pin in his lapel, etc.

The Obamas have also caused exquisite wingnut pain by sullying the pristine whiteness of the White House in new and creative ways, such as gaying it up to celebrate marriage equality:

rainbow white house

And now the Obama family’s auxiliary poop-beast Sunny is literally taking a shit on We the People’s House, according to First Lady Michelle Obama, as pointed out by Washington Free Bacon staff writer Elizabeth Harrington:

First Lady Michelle Obama laughed about the animals defecating in the “People’s House.” She said the Portuguese Water Dogs, [sic] would still be rewarded with “lots of new toys and treats” for Christmas.

Wonkette notes that Harrington also tweeted about PoopGate:

harringtontweet

So bear in mind during this season of joy and giving (for which Baby Jeebus is the reason) that some of our countrymen are suffering and have been enduring immense pain for seven long years. As you pervert the true meaning of Christmas to distribute dildos during Secret Santa gift exchanges, use the holidays as an excuse to get snot-slinging drunk or ignore the festivities altogether due to your un-American practice of a religion other than Christianity or atheism, keep the suffering of the wingnuts in mind.

As Harrington reminds us, dropping Sunny-bombs in the White House isn’t the only desecration of which Sunny Obama is guilty: The beast has also been wielded as a weapon against white children by militant black nationalist Michelle Obama:

sunny-obama

Sure, the First Lady said it was just an accident caused by an exuberant puppy, and the child’s dad smiling in the background might seem to support that account. But we all know it was really payback for this:

CIVIL RIGHTS, 1963.  Police dog attacking a young black man during the Youth Mass Demonstration in Birmingham, Alabama, spring 1963.

CIVIL RIGHTS, 1963.
Police dog attacking a young black man during the Youth Mass Demonstration in Birmingham, Alabama, spring 1963.

The end.

    No Democratic President has had a real scandal in my lifetime.

    Carter, Clinton and Obama have never abused the power of the Office, in any way, shape or form like Republicans have done over the years, with Watergate, Iran-Contra and the entire Bush, Jr. Presidency.

    The problem for Republicans is unlike Clinton the manufactured fake scandals just do not stick to Obama. Even the crazy rumor mongering doesn’t stick. The stories, such as Bill delaying traffic at LAX for hours to get a $400 haircut on Air Force One are able to get shot down quickly because you can get info so much faster now, so they don’t make it into the New York Times and other major publications. Those rumors just wander around the Wingnut-o-sphere.

    They tried to manufacture scandal after scandal, such as Fast and Furious, Benghazi etc., but nothing took on legs like Whitewater or even Travelgate did, 20+ years ago.

    Must drive Republicans crazy that their bag of dirty tricks isn’t working as well as intended.

    Aside from the racist BS, and aside from the plain fact that the Obamas gets bashed for doing the same stuff that previous presidents and their families have done, this continues a historical trend. The first president who was regularly blasted for being trash and for bringing the wrong sort of people to the White House (and for being the wrong kind of person to be president) was Andrew Jackson.

    Oh, god, another Republican-manufactured dog scandal:

    These Republican leaders have not been content with attacks on me, or my wife, or on my sons. No, not content with that, they now include my little dog, Fala. Well, of course, I don’t resent attacks, and my family don’t resent attacks, but Fala does resent them. You know, Fala is Scotch, and being a Scottie, as soon as he learned that the Republican fiction writers in Congress and out had concocted a story that I’d left him behind on an Aleutian island and had sent a destroyer back to find him—at a cost to the taxpayers of two or three, or eight or twenty million dollars—his Scotch soul was furious. He has not been the same dog since. I am accustomed to hearing malicious falsehoods about myself … But I think I have a right to resent, to object, to libelous statements about my dog.

    You’re not far off about this.

    March 9, 1829:

    After Jackson’s swearing-in ceremony and address to Congress, the new president returned to the White House to meet and greet a flock of politicians, celebrities and citizens. Very shortly, the crowd swelled to more than 20,000, turning the usually dignified White House into a boisterous mob scene. Some guests stood on furniture in muddy shoes while others rummaged through rooms looking for the president–breaking dishes, crystal and grinding food into the carpet along the way. (White House staff reported the carpets smelled of cheese for months after the party.) In an attempt to draw partygoers out of the building, servants set up washtubs full of juice and whiskey on the White House lawn.

    Many prudes clutched their pearls and retreated to their fainting couches that day, a tradition that has intensified with the dopes who complain about Obama not being sufficiently dignified to be a resident of the White House.

    I am completely ignoring whatever the Republicans are doing instead I have immersed myself in Hindustan classical music, which I had previously dismissed as my parents music A truly syncretic effort by both Hindu and Muslim practitioners that really took off when much of India was ruled Muslim rulers. Devotional and romantic poetry is usually the subject matter.
    I am listening to a score of Marathi movie where the protagonists are singers competing to be the best court singer based on a musical written in 1967.

    I love this Qawwali duel, the singers are arguing about the nature of humanity and God, and it is set on the grounds of a mosque or a dargah (tomb of a saint). This is not a version of Islam that the Wahhabists would approve of, I think.

    Chilling Video Terrifies Nation

    LAS VEGAS (The Borowitz Report)—Authorities were urging people to remain calm on Tuesday night after the broadcast of a chilling video that terrified millions.

    The video, which was broadcast nationally on CNN, appeared to show nine extremists glaring into the camera and making a series of escalating threats.

    The radicals’ increasingly violent rhetoric and palpable hatred rattled viewers across the nation, sources said.

    Experts who viewed the video acknowledged that the words and images contained in it were alarming, but advised the public to remain calm until the extremists’ threats could be authenticated.

    “At this point, there is no reason to believe that any of these individuals are credible,” one expert said.

    But such assurances did little to soothe viewers like Carol Foyler, of Kansas City, who watched the video in horror. “These people are clearly dangerous and must be stopped,” she said.

    Scott Walker signs bills dismantling GAB, overhauling campaign finance law

    Gov. Scott Walker has cemented key changes in time for the 2016 political campaign, signing into law bills giving campaign finance law its biggest makeover in decades and dismantling and replacing Wisconsin’s oversight board for elections and elected officials.

    Walker’s signing of the two bills, announced in a press release, was conducted in private Wednesday. It was widely expected after the bills passed the Legislature last month on votes that largely mirrored party lines.

    The campaign finance measure dials back restrictions on money flowing into state political campaigns, some of which had been struck down by court rulings.

    The signing of the measure dismantling the Government Accountability Board kicks off a six-month transition to new elections and ethics commissions that will succeed it on June 30.

    The GAB, made up of six nonpartisan former judges, oversees elections, campaign finance, ethics and lobbying. The bill replaces it with two separate elections and ethics commissions overseen by appointees, most of them partisans, made by legislative leaders and the governor.

    @Betty Cracker: Well, clearly the implication must be that women only have sex with folks who aren’t “real ‘Murican men.” ‘Real’ men are godly and only shtup their ever virginal wives who look exactly like June Cleaver. And they don’t enjoy said shtupping. Not at all.

    Some conservatives love being angry scolds. Did Democrats get this angry about silly things when Bush was president? I didn’t vote for Bush but I didn’t dislike his family or his dog. Didn’t his staff do a Christmas video with his Scottish terrier every year?

    @Paul in KY:

    My niece, a beautiful freshman math genius on full scholarship at Rensselaer, won’t go out to the local hangouts or fraternity parties because there are so few women. Says she gets way too much attention. It sounds like a humblebrag but she’s actually thinking about transferring to a school that is bigger and less specialized. She’s more of an introvert and not that interested in dating right now because of some health issues.

    The comment sections remain steadfast–BHO is the worst president ever; he has brought ruin and catastrophe to the nation; he is incompetent; he is a cunning dictator; and on and on, tirelessly they post comments to stories about the weather and pie-eating contests that he has put us into greater debt than all previous presidents combined, that he is a Muslin, and that he wants real Americans to suffer. My question is, how many of these comments are paid for, how many are sincerely delusional, and how many are just bigoted lies?

    There was a republican pol in some State when President Obama was first elected and he remarked that the White House could no longer be called the “White House;” and he was right – I took it as he was saying that previously, only white men occupied it, and now that wasn’t true. Not really trying to be mean but just pointing out that at long last, a non-white was elected President. The man did apologize but I really didn’t take his joke as being an attempt to put anyone down but that he felt this was proof that finally we had, as a country, changed some for the better.

    Scotties aren’t goofy golden retrievers, They have very victorian attitudes toward social interactions. You wave and get their attention, then offer a hand to let them smell you. What happens next is usually about how their human feels about you.

    My guy would not stay in the same room with a friend of my father’s who was at that time a correctional officer. The guy loves dogs and was pretty disappointed about all. No matter what he did Himself would have nothing to do with him.

    Dad didn’t understand it, I pointed out that the friend was a CO who spent his days controlling others, T wouldn’t be down with that, he could sense that the guy was an authoritarian.

    It’s true. Every bar in Spain and France has great food, if they serve anything at all. The only exception was in Bilbao we visited a bar the specialized in “American” food, hamburgers, fries, beer. It wasn’t terrible, but it wasn’t up the the local standards at all. And the signs usually say “BAR” !

    Fresh anchovies (no salt!) with peppers, cheese and swimming in fresh local olive oil. Meat, smoked and cured, hanging from the ceiling, hams and sausages, sliced paper thin and wrapped around a pepper with cheese.

    Great food of every sort. Good beer, good wine, a great trip surrounded by friendly people. Except for two elderly women the wife spoke to, she didn’t speak their language with the traditional respect they expected… so sad.

    For whatever myopic personal reasons, I don’t think I really ever got just how dramatic the rainbow White House was.

    Thank you, for driving home the fact of WOW! That mattered! The freakin’ President of these United States gayed up the White House. And he did it after stealing the election while being black/half-black/Muslim/Kenyan/communist/socialist/Nazi/coming for our guns/terrorizing Texas with Jade Helm, at that! I now fully understand just how many brains exploded that day.

    I think I’ll curl up with a good bottle of wingnut tears before bed, and send good thoughts your way.
