You Forgot Beastiality

Alfred Baldasaro, Republican representative to the House of the great state of New Hampshire, aims to take on the entire South Carolina Douchebag Delegation in a single outing. Can he do it? Let’s check in with his testimony in favor of a bill that would repeal his state’s same-sex marriage law:

  • “So because I disagree on something that’s pushed down my throat, I’m supposed to roll over because, representative, you think it’s normal? I’m sorry you got the wrong person.”
  • “I wanted to make sure everyone understood here, that this legislature sold the rights of $10,000 per kid under title four, when they said that homosexual couples, not married, can adopt. So we sold each kid to a homosexual couple that’s not married for $10,000.”
  • On incestuous couples: “Aren’t we discriminating against all them?”
  • “What about the Muslims now? Everyone’s praising the Muslims. They’re killing us. What about them, they want three, four wives. We’re discriminating against them.”

Andre? Jim? Joe? Mark? Time to put up or shut up. Your honor is at stake.

Sorry, I can’t deal with this crap. Why he isn’t run out of town escapes me.

Isn’t there a craps game he’s late to or something?

just got the most beautiful Korean rice paper block print from my coworker as a thank you for taking care of their dog while they were in Korea over Xmas.

been thinking about a small business. I think in a few years one of these franchises could really take off.

If I put his quotes through the GOPer subtext translator, it sounds like that he secretly wants to suck cock, buy kids cheap, wants to fuck one of his male relatives and hungers for brown tinted males who like Hummus and Tabbouleh.

@ManchuCandidate: I got the updated translator and the guy is clearly begging to be savagely face-fucked, a subtle distinction but, I think, an important one.

No disrespect.

Translation:

No homo.

Well, its time to announce, its “mission accomplished,” Limbaugh, Savage, and the rest of the hate media, along with the GOP in general, have made openly racist public statements respectable again.

This bothers me, because of a deep philosophical lesson I learned from a Tom Cruise movie. Its a pivotal scene in the movie, wherein Tom’s disreputable friend, perhaps known better as “Booger” from “Revenge of the Nerds,” is urging Tom to do this whorehouse business venture. Booger is trying to get Tom to say “fuck it.” Tom resists, Booger says to him “if you can’t say it, you can’t do it.”

Thats real, thats a real point, a piece of wisdom. “If you can’t say it, you can’t do it.” Conversely, once you are comfortable saying it, you can become comfortable with the idea of doing it. Its true, if you cannot even bring yourself to say it, you cannot do it, being able to say it, thats the first step in de-sensitising, its the first step towards acceptance, first its unthinkable, then you can think it, but its not to be spoken, then you can say it, and only then, can you do it.

The GOP’s rhetoric is truly dangerous, because it is now starting to desensitize people, to the point they can openly speak things once clearly and totally “beyond the pale” in public discourse. Killing the president, open racism, secession, all these things are now open for public discourse, and the lesson I learned from Booger, is that once you can say it, the boundaries on action are down, and you can do it.

Oh, laugh at my bringing up a Tom Cruise teen comedy and the wisdom of Booger, but this is a true fact. Once it becomes okay to say it, it also becomes okay to do it.

We need to find that Ark, right quick, stinquers, because one of the thing they speak of is rounding up “treasonous” “Unamerican” liberals.

Every time Limbaugh makes some reference to genocide being acceptable (daily occurence), every time some politician like this, or like that South Carolina closet case, makes these remarks, some basement-dwelling Adkisson-brigade retard is finding encouragement, psychopaths all over the country who would otherwise be timid and limit themselves to torturing animals, find themselves thinking, “I can do this, I will be a hero,” this rhetoric is truly and seriously bad mojo, and it will end in blood.

This headline reminds me of the timeless advice my boss gave me about writing copy for a rare books catalogue: “Always lead with bestiality.”

@Promnight: Yes. I’m already incredibly depressed tonight. Thank you for making me realize there are bigger reasons to be depressed.

@Mistress Cynica: If “Always lead with bestiality” isn’t the tweet of the day, I don’t know what would win Nojo’s heart.

@Mistress Cynica: My buddy’s college paper newswriting advice (from his dad, a Time-Life writer and old school newspaper guy): “Put your most inflammatory stuff up high.”

It’s not a bad rule.

@SanFranLefty: Not only that, I’m calling an audible on the spelling. English needs a course correction now and then.

@nojo: So you go with “beast…” and not “best…”? Is there a “zoo” in “zoology”? (Hey, I’m from Philly — I need all the help I can get.)

@nojo: Ding, ding, ding. False etymology (or as we like to say in our house, a Safirism), mon vieux. Word derives from Old Franch bestialite (bestiale), not the English beast, its root being, of course, the Latin bestialis ie. having to do with cattle.

Interesting you should ask: Yes! I can be more boring than this.

@JNOV: Zoo is a contraction of Zoological Gardens, the first public zoo being established in Regent’s Park, Londres. Zoology, the study of animals deriving from the Greek zoion; animal.

Am I the only one with an OED to hand? (See note above re. Boring.)

@Benedick:

I had OED once but I got a shot and it cleared up in no time.

@Mistress Cynica: Yes, but, if possible, expressed in the first person.

@Benedick: I would love to have an OED!

@ All: ::hint hint::

@Capt Howdy: Oh, maybe I don’t want one after all…

@Benedick: Fucking Safire. Of course it would be no suprise if the words for every perversion know all derive from the French, wouldn’t it?

@JNOV: Do you use a Mac? It’s built in to Dashboard.

@Prommie: Wankers.

@Benedick: Are you telling me that brown Dictionary thingy is the OED? Bonus!

Baldasaro:“My t-shirt? Oh no, it’s German. It says ‘Die Fags, Die’.”

@Original Andrew: Ha. My high school German teacher, while making copies for a unit on the 1998 federal election (the one that brought Gerhard Schroeder – aka “Audi Man” – to power), accidentally left an original reading “Die Wahl” in big block letters in the copy room. Mrs. Wahl, who worked in the principal’s office, found it and thought it was a death threat. Much anguish and hilarity ensued.

@JNOV: It is. Bit stripped down but still the OED.

@mellbell: See, the key here is the fact you were taught about something in high school that happened in 1998! If that makes me feel old and I’m well below the mean Stinque age, I’m sure you’re doing quite a number on those in the “downhill” half of the bell curve.
