  • John||

    Hillary 2016, providing a stupid reason for stupid people to vote for the Presidency.

    Come on, isn't it a woman's turn now?

    It is so idiotic and shallow, it has to work. Come on low information, low IQ voters, you did for Obama twice, you can do it for Hillary.

  • Tony||

    Democrats get the low-information voters who happen to be aware that Republicans don't offer them anything worth voting for. Republicans get the low-information voters who are duped into thinking they do.

  • T||

    Because Democrats offered those low information voters what, exactly, in '12? A chance to keep getting screwed?

  • Citizen Nothing||

    Screwed, yes. But screwed with free condoms.

  • Loki||

    Because Democrats offered those low information voters what, exactly, in '12?

    Obamaphones, free contraceptives, other people's money.

  • PapayaSF||

    Democrats offer voters lots of things, but of course, little of it is actually delivered.

  • Tony||

    You say that on the very day Obama announces plans to deliver on campaign promises of action on climate change, and years after delivering on the campaign promise of healthcare reform, among many others.

    It's the right-wing Christians who really get the shaft from their national party.

  • sgs||

    " among many others."

    lol

  • PapayaSF||

    In order to count as "delivering," there actually has to be something of value delivered. Delivering "health care reform" actually means "everyone's expenses to go up and a bunch of people become unemployed," so no, I don't count that as "delivering."

  • ||

    Delivering by Presidential Fiat is dictatorial.

  • John C. Randolph||

    Tony, the motherfucker reneged on his campaign promises to quit harassing medical marijuana users, close gizmo, and end the usurpations in the PATRIOT act.

    If you weren't such a slimy little hypocrite, you would have bailed out of the teleprompter-in-chief's bandwagon the day he signed the PATRIOT act extension.

  • Not Sure||

    Wasn't Iraq supposed to end on day one? I recall being to told to take that to the bank.

  • General Butt Naked||

    The FSA disagrees.

  • Irish||

    Democrats get the low-information voters who happen to be aware that Republicans don't offer them anything worth voting for.

    That explains why Detroit, Chicago and Cleveland are in such great shape. Because the Democrats are so good at helping people.

    Tony, if I had an enemy who I wanted to destroy so completely that there was no hope of him ever recovering, I would ask the Democratic party to help him. Within about 3 weeks his parents would be divorced, he'd be unemployed, bankrupt and his neighborhood would be torn apart by gang violence.

  • ||

    XYZ Tony.

    There is a false dichotomy underlying your political philosopy, and it is showing.

  • Tony||

    The American political system is a dichotomous one.

  • sgs||

    What does that have to do with you being to0 stupid to avoid a false dichotomy?

  • sarcasmic||

    Remember that Tony is so stupid that he honestly believes that oil companies that pay billions of dollars in taxes receive subsidies.
    It is my understanding that a subsidy is money taken from the taxpayers and given to a recipient. Since these oil companies are net taxpayers, no money is being taken from taxpayers and given to them.
    Yet Tony honestly believes that oil companies that pay billions of dollars in taxes are subsidized by the taxpayers.
    His brain is broken. That's all there is to it.

  • Tony||

    If you don't realize that the oil industry is heavily subsidized, how the fuck are you supposed to have an informed opinion on energy policy? Fossil Fuel Subsidies in the US.

    You really think your surface semantic pseudo-clever way of looking at the world has a relationship to reality, don't you?

  • Citizen Nothing||

    You don't even read your own links, do you?

  • Citizen Nothing||

    Or perhaps you just don't really understand them.

  • DK||

    He doesn't even read the comment he's responding to. I think he got confused by "net taxpayers" and thought, "Why would oil companies be using nets to extract oil?"

  • sgs||

    "If you don't realize that the oil industry is heavily subsidized, how the fuck are you supposed to have an informed opinion on energy policy?"

    We ask you this every time you come here and you never have an answer.

  • sgs||

    Not paying someone money you don't owe them is a subsidy.

  • sarcasmic||

    You really think your surface semantic pseudo-clever way of looking at the world has a relationship to reality, don't you?

    It's quite simple, moron.

    If taxes paid minus tax benefits is greater than zero, then the company is a taxpayer.

    If taxes paid minus tax benefits is less than zero, then the company is subsidized.

    It's not overly complicated.

    I know you want to feel like the oil companies are subsidized because they're evil corporations that make evil profits, but that's not reality.

    The reality is that the government takes in more revenue from gas taxes than oil companies take in profits, and then the government taxes those profits.

    Fuck you're stupid. I mean, really really stupid. So fucking stupid you don't even know you're stupid. Fuck.

  • Jerryskids||

    So what if the oil companies are subsidized? What's wrong with that?

    Because it sends false price information and interferes with the proper functioning of free markets? That's the sort of argument only a libertarian nutjob would make. You aren't a libertarian nutjob are you?

  • Tony||

    Yes it would be nice if libertarians applied their allegedly rigid and allegedly consistent principles when it came to oil companies.

    But since libertarian exists primarily as the philosophical cover for corporate cronyism, I understand that motivations might conflict.

    If you get a tax break that your peers do not get, it's not just tantamount to a subsidy, it is a subsidy.

  • ||

    Actually, dipshit, libertarians DO argue against ALL FUCKING SUBSIDIES.

    You're just too fucking stupid to listen.

  • John C. Randolph||

    Math is racist!

    -jcr

  • ||

    Yes, yes, not taking is giving and not giving is taking.

  • sarcasmic||

    Democrats get the economically ignorant voters who don't understand (or care) that everything government gives away must first be taken away from someone else.

    "Government is the great fiction through which everybody endeavors to live at the expense of everybody else."
    -Bastiat
  • Irish||

    They also get people who allow themselves to be made dependent on the state, thus forcing their families into a cycle of poverty in perpetuity.

    If I give money to someone who blows it on vice products like booze and lottery tickets, I'd get called an enabler and be told that I should stop. But when someone says that government should do the exact same thing, idiots convince themselves that it's altruism.

  • Matrix||

    there's nothing altruistic about force

  • sarcasmic||

    there's nothing altruistic about force

    Yes there is! There is no point in contributing to a charity if someone else can choose not to contribute! No point at all! That's what makes force fair! Force means everyone pays their fair share! It's pure altruism!

  • Loki||

    They also get people who allow themselves to be made dependent on the state, thus forcing their families into a cycle of poverty in perpetuity.

  • Knutsack||

    Are you sure that wasn't Paula Deen?

  • ||

    The cult of personality shit that TEAM BLUE comes up with is invariably creepy as hell.

  • John||

    It is all they have left. And when Obama leaves, they are going to have to find a new one. Hillary is really the only candidate. And it is going to be even stranger and more creepy than the Obama cult.

  • Pro Libertate||

    Obama had no reputation to smear, really, the first time around, and he got a weird pass for some reason for his first term. None of this applies to Clinton, who is despised by not only Republicans but by plenty of moderates and hardcore Obamaniacs, too. On top of that, the scandal at DoS is going to hit her square in the jaw.

    The Democrats, being stupid and evil, will try to replicate Obama--guaranteed. That's not Clinton by any stretch of the imagination. It may be another young up and comer, preferably female.

  • PapayaSF||

    Replicating Obama will be difficult, because that involved running against Bush with a blank slate candidate. Bush is now ancient history, Hillary can't run against Obama's record, and she isn't a blank slate.

  • RBS||

    Bush is now ancient history

    Tell that to MSNBC and the rest of the progtards.

  • ||

    Bush is now ancient history

    I lol'd.

  • PapayaSF||

    Come on, don't you think that tactic is getting stale now, and will seem pretty silly in 2016?

  • ||

    It wont if the Republicans run someone that can be linked to Bush in even the tiniest way.

  • PapayaSF||

    Which is the main reason why Jeb is a non-starter, unless the next three years are so terrible that there is a wave of Bush nostalgia.

    At the moment I am thinking of/hoping for a Scott Walker/Rand Paul ticket.

  • WTF||

    Don't worry, Hillary will run against Bush and the media will act as though the last eight years never happened.

  • JW||

    What about the 12 dark years of Reagan-Bush? Never discount that.

  • Eduard van Haalen||

    Don't forget Herbert Hoover.

  • playa manhattan||

    "for some reason"

  • John||

    I think there is a lot of that for sure. A lot of people hate Hillary and the Clintons. But she has the feminist vote sowed up. And that is important in the Dem party. She also has a huge organization and money. And that counts.

  • PapayaSF||

    she has the feminist vote sowed up

    Oh, that's mean!

  • Bam!||

    "It may be another young up and comer, preferably female."

    Maybe a little Cherokee as well.

  • Jon Lester||

    I might have a weakness for that.

  • Jon Lester||

    Unless you mean someone in particular.

  • Jon Lester||

    I didn't think about Warren until I saw more comments downthread.

  • Auric Demonocles||

    Pro lib, your favorite Canadian region came up today.

    Yes, and the party of stupid will forego showing endless loops of Christopher Stevens body being dragged through the streets of Benghazi after being sodomized out of 'respect'.

    Pathetic.

  • Brandybuck||

    To be fair, they CAN'T campaign on warfare, torture, droning, spying, etc., so they have to go with the personality shit.

  • Mr. Soul||

    to paraphrase stupid Flanders:
    Is that the sound of butting in?
    It's gotta be Hilary Clinton:
    America's answer to the question no one asked!

  • SweatingGin||

    You could just about work that in to a big brother face.

  • PapayaSF||

  • JW||

    Guy Fawkes facial hair.

  • The Late P Brooks||

    That should be projected onto a billowing cloud of smoke.

  • JW||

    She should stay away from buckets of water.

  • Zeb||

    I still say there is no way she gets elected. Sure, lots of people voted for Obama just because it was cool to have a blackish president. But Obama was also a blank slate to most people. Clinton has a history that everyone knows. And lots of people who actively hate her. And she's old. I'll be surprised if she gets the Dem nomination.

  • SweatingGin||

    I'd like to think all those reasons are valid, and would keep her out.

    But but but... BIRTH CONTROL!

    Seems like they can get that one going again.

  • Pro Libertate||

    No way she gets nominated. None.

  • Hash Brown||

    From your lips to etc.

  • John||

    I go back and forth. There is a certain kind of suburban woman and their beta male husbands who fucking love Hillary. And their votes matter because they are swing votes. They voted for Bush in 04 because they were worried about terrorism. They voted for Obama in 08 and 12 because of birth control and abortion and the thought that if their little snowfake got herself knocked up they might be able to take care of it.

    Those people are going to vote Hillary no matter what. The fact that she is completely incompetent and has literally fucked up every single job she has ever had going all of the way back to the Rose Law Firm won't matter.

  • RBS||

    I bet that self loathing Beta Dad guy from a few weeks ago fucking loves Hilary.

  • AuH20||

    The guy who felt bad about fantasizing about women?

    At this point, my only theory is that he is a major pedophile, and he used "women" to substitute for "children". Cuz that is the only way that makes any damn sense.

  • ||

    Because he's told to. If he ever wants sex again he has to love Hilary. Publicly. Audibly. With vigor in front of his dominant wife. And still, it has to be the worst sex in the world.

  • Citizen Nothing||

    Sorry. I choose the face-cage full of ravenous rats.

  • Fatty Bolger||

    You mean this type?

  • AuH20||

    Eh, it's possible that if Hilary seems like as much a ball-buster as their wives, they'll publicly support her but pull the lever for someone else in the voting booth.

  • John||

    If they had the courage to do that, they wouldn't be married to these women. You don't understand the depth of the Stockholm syndrome that occurs with this kind of man.

  • sgs||

    " There is a certain kind of suburban woman and their beta male husbands who fucking love Hillary. And their votes matter because they are swing votes. They voted for Bush in 04 because they were worried about terrorism. They voted for Obama in 08 and 12 because of birth control and abortion"

    Those people never voted for Bush, and will always be Dem shills.

    Worrying about them like you are is ignorant and pointless.

  • Fatty Bolger||

    One can only hope that she's fading to invisibility.

  • Slammer||

    What's up with the model? Some androgynous hipster type? Or maybe just missing a tit?

  • PapayaSF||

    It's symbolic of the future she represents, you heteronormative troglodyte.

  • General Butt Naked||

    Oh fuck. I can't handle any more of the cult of personality shit from the red and blue rah-rah retards.

    Can't we just pick some random schmuck out of the telephone book and call it a day?

  • UnCivilServant||

    Which telephone book?

  • Brett L||

    Pick one, preferrably not from a Federal agency.

  • Eduard van Haalen||

    But the NSA's telephone book is the most comprehensive and up-to-date!

  • Mr. Soul||

    I like the sound of picking some Rand-om schmuck.

  • Rich||

    Two-tone woman’s fit t-shirt that is side-seamed for a custom contoured fit.

    Nothing for *men*?! FTS!

  • Rebekah||

    "Women have always been the primary victims of war. Women lose their husbands, their fathers, their sons in combat."

    Men don't even get to be the primary victims of your own deaths any more, and you want T-shirts? Ha! Stupid prole.

  • WTF||

    The men can't be victims, because they are oppressors, and also Patriarchy.

  • B.P.||

    Wow, that 's an actual Hillary quote. Wow.

  • The Late P Brooks||

    Clinton/Warren 2016!!!!

    I read an article about the Kos Rally the other day. It said there were a bunch of people running around proclaiming they were from the "Elizabeth Warren wing" of the Democratic Party. Because what this country really needs is a spanking from a humorless dried up old schoolmarm, apparently.

    I weep for America.

  • Tony||

    Good impression of the way conservatives talk about women politicians. Now express exasperation that women won't vote for you.

  • Citizen Nothing||

    This is why nobody takes libertarians seriously!

  • MJGreen||

    If the dried up old vag fits...

  • sgs||

    My wife thinks she's a "a humorless dried up old schoolmarm" too.

  • Irish||

    My wife thinks she's a "a humorless dried up old schoolmarm" too.

    Yes, but women who don't unthinkingly love left-wing idiots aren't real women. Don't you know anything?

    Just like black people and Hispanics who vote Republican or are libertarian aren't really part of those minority groups, women who don't like the Democratic Party are actually white men.

    It's basic logic.

  • Eduard van Haalen||

    How many beatings before she agreed with you on this? You oppressor.

  • Irish||

    Uh...women vote Republican at like 47% rates. Or do almost half of women not matter because they don't vote Democrat?

    Nice to see you admitting what low opinions left wingers actually have of women. Those 47% who vote Republican should really get back in the kitchen, huh?

  • Eduard van Haalen||

    They're like the general's wife in The Handmaid's Tale (yes, I read it).

  • Tony||

    That rate will continue to fall as long as old fat white Republican men keep pontificating on women's reproductive systems and treating women leaders as if they're 50-s era secretaries.

  • Red Rocks Rockin||

    treating women leaders as if they're 50-s era secretaries.

    50-s era secretaries were much more competent.

  • mad libertarian guy||

    Because Team BLUE shills NEVER say nasty shit about women . . .

    Fuck off, sockpuppet. The least you can do is not be so transparently naive.

  • ||

    What's that? Some dem shill called Sarah Palin a stupid cunt? Oh yeah, totally not the same thing.

  • Ranter||

    You forgot "Faux Native American". That final component is the cherry on top that drives em all wild.

    To be fair to Warren though, she's been fairly consistent about raking justice and finance party hacks over the coals. Someone should be able to formulate a sensible reason why all the mortgage huckster corporations never got stopped and never served time.

  • T||

    Because they were paying Liz Warren hundreds of thousands in legal fees? Or was that someone else doing that? I forget.

  • sgs||

    "To be fair to Warren though, "

    NO thanks, shut the fuck up now shill.

  • Ranter||

    Ah I see.

    I'm a "shill" because I contend that even a person who's a demonstrable piece of shit can do something right now and then.

    Maybe you can cool off your hyper-partisan asshole gland with a nice glass of STFU.

  • Brett L||

    It said there were a bunch of people running around proclaiming they were from the "Elizabeth Warren wing" of the Democratic Party.

    Overpaid academic apologists for Big Business and Big Government? I think they're pretty well represented already.

  • AuH20||

    Yeah, I thought that was just called, "I'm in a humanities masters program."

  • Irish||

    Because what this country really needs is a spanking from a humorless dried up old schoolmarm, apparently.

    Remember when cool people like Hunter S. Thompson and Kurt Vonnegut used to consider themselves left-wing?

    Now they're genuflecting before Elizabeth Warren, a boring, puritanical shrew. What happened? Where'd the cool leftists go?

  • Citizen Nothing||

    They keep killing themselves. Can you blame them?

  • Irish||

    Vonnegut didn't kill himself.

    I think it's more likely that the cool leftists were never actually anything like the modern leftists. The older left-wing tended to be opposed to a lot of the terrible things that the American right was doing at a time when the right was ascendant. Now that the left is in power and is doing all the same terrible things while adopting a terrifying, Orwellian authoritarian streak, you can't really be considered a leftist anymore unless you jettison everything that made the left wing interesting.

  • PapayaSF||

    It's cool to be a leftist when the Establishment is Nixon or Reagan. When the Establishment is Obama, the coolness goes away and you're just a shill for government.

  • Citizen Nothing||

    I do wish H.S.T. were still around for many reasons, but mostly to see what he'd have to say about Obama now. I don't think it'd be pretty.

  • Irish||

    Hitchens didn't live long enough to see the real Obama shit show, but the things he had to say about candidate Obama were not pretty.

    Here's what he said about Obama's campaign slogan:

    But now it seems that the more vapid and vacuous the logo, the more charm (or should that be charisma?) it exerts. Take "Yes We Can," for example. It's the sort of thing parents might chant encouragingly to a child slow on the potty-training uptake.
  • PapayaSF||

    No shit. The inevitable comparisons with Nixon would especially sting, coming from him.

  • General Butt Naked||

    I think the post-Sandy Hook article that Thompson would have inevitably written would've caused many leftists to puke in their pants.

  • JW||

    It said there were a bunch of people running around proclaiming they were from the "Elizabeth Warren wing" of the Democratic Party.

    "I'm so sorry! If it makes you feel any better, you don't look like someone with a learning disability."

  • PapayaSF||

    Her "research" was academic fraud, she lied about her ethnicity for personal gain, and she even took recipes from the newspaper and claimed they were old family recipes (because we all know how Cherokees were so creative in their use of ingredients like crab and mayonnaise).

  • Eduard van Haalen||

    "Make-up heap big fire. Fill pot with water from stream. When boiling, drop-um Stouffer's Frozen dinner in pot. Smoke-um peace pipe until dinner is ready."

  • Eduard van Haalen||

    OK, to be fair, the Cherokees made a fairly decent go of white-style civilization (but that didn't save them from being banished from their land when the whites wanted it). As a civilized tribe, they may well have had mayonnaise, or the equivalent at that time.

  • Loki||

    As a civilized tribe, they may well have had mayonnaise, or the equivalent at that time.

    Whatever it was I'm sure it was artisanal

  • PapayaSF||

    Odd, though, that her "old family recipes" were word-for-word copies of recipes published in the New York Times five years previously.

  • ||

    It is very odd that the New York Times stole her old family recipes like that. I guess the government will have to start approving their content before printing to make sure that doesn't happen again.

  • The Late P Brooks||

    I'll try this one again:

    Can't we just pick some random schmuck out of the telephone book and call it a day?

    The guy who delivers my propane would make a better President than any of the "legitimate' candidates.

    I'm totally on board!
    The Guy Who Delivers P Brooks' Propane/The Guy Who Excavated My Basement in 2016!

  • John||

    I would totally be on board for randomly picking members of Congress. Expand the House to a 1000 members. And pick 1000 registered voters at random to serve two years. Pass a law that says their civilian employers have to hold their jobs while they are gone. Let people out of service if they are sick or have some family emergency. And just put said 1000 up there and let them go to work. They could not possibly be any worse than what we have and they would most likely be better.

  • ||

    No way. No registered voters. Miss South Carolina can't possibly have figured out how to vote. And she should be Speaker of the House and such as.

  • John||

    But if you did everyone, you couldn't avoid the job by just not registering to vote.

  • Azathoth!!||

    The part of government that needs to be randomly picked isn't the part that's subject to election.

    The bureacracy should be removed and replaced with randomly picked voters.

    They are the vast shadow government that keeps things moving towards statism.

  • Ranter||

    Ugh. They should pander to the other side and put it on a dartboard.

    Maybe someone in the media will ask her why she thinks family dynasties are a good thing in a theoretical constitutional democracy.

    God knows they won't be asking her anything policy-related like presidential overreach/spying/civil liberties/Benghazi/debt reduction/etc.

  • NoVAHockey||

    That T-Shirt is the worst fashion statement involving a Clinton since a certain stained blue dress.

  • Mr. Soul||

    If Lewinsky wore that shirt, Bill could argue what the meaning of "Jizz" is.

    She deserves to be President about as much as a rotting corpse of a a US diplomat.

  • Citizen Nothing||

    Ok. Fine. The Guy Who Delivers P Brooks' Propane/Rotting Corpse of a U.S. Diplomat in 2016!

  • Ska||

    But I really wanted to hear the excavator guy's position on legalized prostitution.

  • Calvin Coolidge||

    Only if said rotting corpse is married to a former President of the US. Which is now and has always been Hillary!'s sole claim to respect.m She's ridden his coattails as far as she can, pity for her that she has proven woefully imcompetent whenever asked to actually do anything other than be married to Bill.

  • Loki||

    she has proven woefully imcompetent whenever asked to actually do anything other than be married to Bill.

    Given Bill's inclination to go elsewhere for sexual gratification I'd say she's been pretty incompetent at that too.

  • Calvin Coolidge||

    She's very good at "being married to Bill" - so much so that she has maintained that status for decades, despite his tendency to stick his dick into anything with a pulse that isn't named 'Hillary!'

  • Calvin Coolidge||

    According to that "readyforhillary" website, one reason to vote for Hillary! is that "Many of us were born before women were allowed to vote!".

    Given that women's suffrage dates back to 1920 in the USA, it seems that most of the Hillary! supporters are nearly 100 years old - which sounds about right.

    She has an amazing resume, full of positions she was allowed to take because of her powerful husband, positions in which her actual record of achievement is horrible. Remember Hillarycare? Saved us from another power grab by government over our healthcare for a generation. Rose Law Firm? Secretary of State? Arkansas Education reform? Her resume is impressive, if you don't look at the failures under every top line.

    "Many of us were born before women were allowed to vote!".

    Further evidence that to be a liberal is to be completely ignorant of history. Being astoundingly ignorant of history seems to be some kind of prerequisite to being a liberal.

    "FDR ended the depression with the New Deal, surely Obama can do the same for us!"

    As you said, totally ignorant of history, except as taught in the public schools - and the history taught in the public schools has the same relationship to real history as our current economy does to "free market capitalism".

    The women's rights movement began in the 1970s

    Jim Crow wasn't caused by Democracy. Reagan cut all the welfare. The Democrats magically stopped being racist in 1965. Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan were free market ideologues. We have a free market today, and that's where all the problems come from.

    I could do this all day.

    Before that, an ambitious woman such as Hillary! would have had to rely on her husband's fame and power in order to succeed. Whereas Hillary! made partner at Rose Law Firm, was appointed to design an Education reform package for Arkansas, was appointed to design a Health Care reform package for the US, was elected Senator, and was appointed Secretary of State, all by pure coincidence, with no help from her husband the President.

    You've come a long way baby. Now do my laundry. Use extra detergent on that blue dress, I don't want any stains!

    her career mirrors Ma Ferguson in many ways.

    she just might be the smartest woman in America. it would explain much.

  • Calvin Coolidge||

    "she just might be the smartest woman in America"

    Well, she certainly believes she is. And her supporters are dumb enough to believe her.

    I, on the other hand, will wait for some evidence of this assertion that goes beyond: "Look at all the different complicated things she has failed miserably at".
