A solid week of douchebags again for this my 400th post. Remember to help support this site by clicking on the ads. Let's see that long list of runner ups.
1)Acton, MA- It came out this week that the town of Acton has discouraged a woman from putting up lost dog signs. Due to some archaic law and terrible written wording, some local douchebags (in a town filled with them I'm told) are complaining about those signs as an "eyesore." Tell you what, if your pet, kid or wife goes missing, let's see how you feel about those signs then. The town is working to rectify a public relations nightmare. Good thing I don't live in that town because you can be damned sure I would be at the next town meeting with some choice words and a probable law suit for unconstitutional use of anti-free speech laws. I'm actually more upset with the locals bitching about the signs then the town who seem very reluctant to enforce said law. Only in MA.
2)Paula Deen- I hate Paula Deen. Her Krispy Kreme Hamburger Sandwich is one of the most artery clogging monstrosities I have ever seen. Plus it sounds gross as hell. Surprise, surprise she came down with diabetes and probably gave it to several million others who follow her recipes. Now it comes out that she may be racist as well. A fat, loud white woman from the South who's a closet racist as well? Stop the presses and call Ripley's. Her brother sounds like a pig too as he is accused of sexually harassing women at the restaurant he and Deen own together. Between this and who the South keeps picking to run for President maybe we should have let them leave the Union all those years ago and be finally done with them. I don't want people to think all Southerners are bad as I know quite a few who aren't. But the majority down there are a bunch of nose picking rubes who need a big dose of shut the f up juice when it comes to politics, religion or Deen.
3)Rasmussen- Yet another poll that flies in the face of the dozens of others that show Obama way ahead of the GOP pack. Rasmussen poll shows Obama way behind Romney and neck and neck with Santorum. Somehow, especially after the horrid week Republicans had, can I possibly believe the stat to be accurate. Other polls by people like Gallop, Politico and a dozen others show the GOP way behind Obama, except for Romney who still trails by an average of six points. This particular poll has been way wrong for several years now on a majority of it's topics and I suspect GOP involvement. I'm sure the question asked went something like this: "Will you vote in November for the Marxist, socialist, Kenyan Obama or the god fearing family man (Insert random GOP name here)?" This poll is crap.
4)Chris Christie-What is it this week with fat people being a bunch of loud boorish morons? Oh that's right, they're Americans. Christie shouted down a Navy SEAL at a town hall meeting who disagreed with the governor on his position of merging two colleges together. While the edited video makes it hard to determine if Williams, the veteran, is shouting over the Governor or not, Christie's complete lack of tact is on full display. When someone like Obama gets heckled, he handles it with real grace. Christie bites the guys head off. What a douche.
5)Glenn Grothman- Who the heck is Glenn Grothman? He's a Wisconsin Senator who said "unwanted or mistimed" pregnancies are the “choice of the women” who should "learn from their mistake." Grothman recently introduced Senate Bill 507 which would make single parenthood a factor in child abuse cases.
"There’s been a huge change over the last 30 years and a lot of that change has been the choice of the women," Grothman said, noting that he thinks "we should educate women that this is a mistake."
"I think when you have an epidemic of this great proportion, people are not so dumb that it’s surprising when they get pregnant," Grothman said of "unwanted or mistimed" pregnancies. "I think people are trained to say that ‘this is a surprise to me,’ because there’s still enough of a stigma that they’re supposed to say this."
His law has sparked a campaign by concerned women which the GOP has all but declared war on. Remember that come November.
6)US Soldier in Afghanistan who went on killing rampage- An unnamed US soldier apparently went on a killing spree today killing 16 civilians including women and children. This is reprenhensible and sure to deteriorate a bad situation. True, the Muslim extremists deserve some of the blame as their idiocy about the accidental Koran burnings have turned the situation white hot. These cave dwellers don't seem to understand the idea that for every action, there will be an equal and opposite reaction. We have nutters too and they have automatic weapons. Still, this action is not to be condoned and expect this to turn more problematic as the extremists will use this further, making the situation worse. And these are the same kind of "rational" people that we want to allow to have nukes.
7)Iran and the Palestinians- Speaking of idiocy, Islamic Jihad has fired a barrage of rockets into Israel from the Gaza strip, killing a few but proving the worth of the new Iron Dome security systems that shot down a majority of the missiles. Jihad is a proxy group of Iran and both have been warned against using the new Fahir rockets that were smuggled into Gaza months ago. Do Muslim extremists have no self worth whatsoever? This conflict is begging for a smack down.
8)Rush Limbaugh and his followers- Rush had a bad week. All his advertisers fled, dead air rules his air waves and the back lash have affected all of right wing radio whose advertisers have also started to drop them. This should have happened a long time ago as the misogynistic, hate filed speech from the far right has no place on commercial radio. We keep hearing about the mythical left MSM, but all we get is right wing garbage from most outlets. Rush's time has come and gone and it's time to wave him off into the same sunset Don Imos was forced into. Anyone still listening to this fat blowhard needs to take a good hard look in the mirror because chances are you're probably a dick. So congratulation Rush Limbaugh and his followers you are all douchebags of the week.
