Idiots on Parade!

Sometimes the shit that happens for real is weirder than anything you can make up.

Earlier this week, a woman wearing a blonde wig and carrying a fake “Employee of the Month” award tried to heckle Tea Party darling Rand Paul at one of his rallies by presenting him with the award in the name of “corporate America.” Given Rand Paul’s stated beliefs, I would of thought his supporters would have taken this as a compliment. One of Rand’s supporters, Tim Proffitt, stomped on her head after she was pushed to the ground. Video cameras captured the whole thing. Paul’s campaign subsequently severed all ties with Proffitt and denounced head stomping as a form of political expression.
Proffitt first blamed the police (presumably because they didn’t STOP him from stepping on this woman’s head) and now wants an apology from the woman whose head he stepped on. I don’t know why; maybe he hurt his foot.
Ironically, one of the people shown pushing the woman to the ground was carrying a sign that said, “Don’t tread on me!”

Also, Clint McCance, an official of a school board in Northern Arkansas, recently posted his opinion on the public campaign to get people to wear purple in order to show sympathy for gay students who may have killed themselves because of bullying.

“Seriously they want me to wear purple because five queers killed themselves,” McCance allegedly wrote. “The only way im wearin it for them is if they all commit suicide. I cant believe the people of this world have gotten this stupid. We are honoring the fact that they sinned and killed thereselves because of their sin.”

OK, not only is McCance a douche, but he is obviously too stupid to serve on a school board. “Killed thereselves“? I wouldn’t trust this idiot to teach a dog how to shit in the grass.

  1. I'm glad to hear that head-stomping is no longer an accepted form of right-wing political expression. Now if only we could convince the left to abandon their equally objectionable use of cream-pies and catchy rhyming slogans.

    I guess I find it ironic that people who view themselves as a grassroots movement motivated by displeasure at the state's interference in their private affairs would demand the police interfere and then blame the police when they didn't.

    I think the noise to signal dissonance between stated ideals and the projected results of policy proposals from the Tea Party candidates make me think they are either lying or delusional.

    @limpey, I'd say misrepresented by the press and some delusion.
