A Piece of Unsolicited Advice from the Constituency


Meet Rep. John Abney Culberson (R-Loon Star State) who is so tickled over the prospects of his beloved TEA Party Caucus shutting down the government that he allowed the testosterone to totally go to his head and uttered these ill-chosen words as he exited Saturday’s GOP House caucus meeting:

It’s like 9/11.  Let’s roll!

It’s not a thing, it’s NOTHING like 9/11, you ignorant chucklehead.

Now, in deference to my fellow bloggers here at RumpRoast, I won’t take up the space here that it would take to describe my feelings of abject disgust over the sheer dick-headed crass, crapitude that is embodied in that unfortunate false equivalence of real heroes with the whiny losers [both literal and figurative] throwing a prolonged tantrum in our nation’s capitol.  The only thing they might have in common with those 9/11 heroes is that they already know they are dead so they might as well destroy the whole shebang as they go down.

Suffice it to say I think Culberson is a hare-brained cracker who could only get elected in Texas.

Which brings me to my second point:  Republican sane people—WAKE UP!  These asshats are about to torpedo your party once and for all.  They represent 13% of the American electorate, the certifiable portion, but they are convinced that they represent a huge majority and they are going to take you down.

Meathead Culberson will survive, though, because he hails from a firmly gerry-rigged district.  But that is certainly not the case for all of you, as reported so well in Down With Tyranny today:

There are at least 32 Republicans who, unlike Culberson, can’t win reelection without independent voters. And, unlike Republicans, independent voters do not back this government shut down.

You folks are on that plane with Culberson.  You know who you are. You still have time to keep him away from the cockpit and put him in a straightjacket.

Oh, and Speaker Boehner? you might consider manning up at the eleventh hour and putting a clean CR to a vote.  If you do, it will pass.  The nut-jobs in your party will not be pleased,  They might even take away your gavel.  But, at least you’ll be able to look the man in the mirror in the eye, tomorrow.

9/11. Seriously? I can’t even…. WTF, people?

But, at least you’ll be able to look the man in the mirror in the eye, tomorrow.

I don’t think he has a reflection.

It’s not a thing, it’s NOTHING like 9/11, you ignorant chucklehead.

It is to guys like this. Both occasions gave them a boner because it meant they could shock-doctrine some authoritarian shit through on the fast track.

Yup. Easily that sick.

Well, it is a terrorist act against the United States.

TPM just noted that Boehner says he isn’t going to advance a clean CR, so shutdown, here we come. 

Seriously, if a shutdown is what it will take to remove enough GOPers from the house to take the leadership away from Orangeman, then it just might be worth it.  hell, they’re going to do it anyway so we may as well make some orangeaide out of it.

Well the unfortunate fact is that he made a completely apt comparison that no one’s been bold enough to state but the denouement to both situations is a very large crash & burn. My apologies to anyone who might be offended by my statement, I know one is intentional & the other was unintentional, & I don’t mean to offend any families of the victims. I personally knew six of the passengers who were killed that day, Peter Gay, Herbert Homer, Stan Hall, Chuck Falkenberg, Ken Waldie, & Dave Kovalcin as we were all employed by the same company at the time & we had corporate headquarters in Boston. I had worked with all of them at various times on different programs during my career with the company.

@Stentor, with total respect for your loss and your feelings, some “very large crash[es] and burns” are, in some ways, justifiable and others simply are not.

My point is that the sacrifice that your colleagues made is holy and it is sacrilegious for this Texan dimwit to draw any parallel to that for the silliness he supports.

These guys really have a Baron Munchausen syndrome- they really think they are the heroes of an epic narrative, when they are venal moneygrubbers and stealers of food from the mouths of babes.

This jerk is a lot more like Mohammed Atta than like Todd Beamer.

This jerk is a lot more like Mohammed Atta than like Todd Beamer.

So the comparison isn’t that crazy after all? All Culberson got wrong was the point of view?
