BOEHNER JOKES WOMEN HAVE ABORTIONS OUT OF CONVENIENCE | House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) joked that women decide to have abortions because they find their pregnancies inconvenient, during his address at the Values Voter Summit this morning. “Like I told you, I have 11 brothers and sisters, my mother had us one at a time,” Boehner said. “I’m sure it wasn’t convenient for her. But I’m glad they’re all here.” (ThinkProgress)
[There’s a name for people like you Boehner, I believe it’s douchebag.]
You know the common thread I notice with Republicans? They’re not good at telling jokes. They’re funny alright, they’re funny the way your school principal is funny when he uses outdated slang to appear hip.
“Yo, cool dudes, have you considered hangin’ out at the happening student government club meeting this afternoon at 3:30? Bring along some pals, your best gal, the whole gang!”
But their actual attempts at humor, not funny, remember when Fox News tried to make its own Daily Show? Commence eye-rolling. McCain’s joke: Wouldn’t it be hilarious to start a nuclear war with a Middle East dictatorship!? Wouldn’t that be hilarious?! Cain’s Jokes: Let’s electrocute Mexicans, lol! Limbaugh: Hey, guyz, Obama is a magic NEGRO, amirite? Dennis Miller: Globildy Guk, blah, blahbity boo, insecure-strict-father-model-attitude, blooblippity blong. And now John Boehner.
Here’s the thing, Repugneticans, you’re a bunch of bible-humping, minority-insulting, privilege-denying, southern-strategist, machismo, humorless creeps. You think you’re views are being marginalized, you’re goddamn right because you’re a bunch of fucking bigots and nowhere is it more apparent than in your sad attempts at joke telling. Shut your fucking mouths.
