Douchebag of the Day

Brad Goehring, Republican Congressional candidate for California’s 11th Congressional District, said yesterday that it was “opening day” of the hunting season for liberals.  Apparently inspired by Talibunny’s “aim and reload at Democrats” comment and map on her Facebook page, Goehring (unclear at press time whether any relation to Hermann Goehring) said on his Facebook page:

If I could issue hunting permits, I would officially declare today opening day for liberals. The season would extend to November 2 and have no limits on how many taken as we desperately need to ‘thin’ the herd.

Predictably, a “clarification” was posted a few hours later.

The keyboards! My beefy fingers are too big for the little keys! Facebook – it’s hard!

I intended to include the wording ‘we would use votes and not bullets’ but hit the share button by accident before I finished and decided to leave it, thinking it would not be taken in a literal sense. I’m sorry if I confused anyone.

Well, that clears things up.  Naturally, the teevee station was able to find a person in town who thought it was a great sentiment.  One guess as to her choice of bumper sticker.

Oh, ho ho, I was only kidding when I said we should murder our political foes en masse. Ha ha, can’t you take a joke?

Its like the hutus and the tutsis, we’re all gonna wind up running down the strees pursued by mobs of teapartiers weilding machetes, my friends. Better get yourself a board with a nail in it, right quick.

Srsly, we need to arm ourselves. RML can do the firearms training, and Baked can find us some hot IDF soldiers to give us some hand-to-hand combat tips.


Nah. We can confuse them by running into malls and standing real still next to the mannequins.

cubbie, i’m going back to israel for a couple months. i plan on spending the time in gun school…seriously. i will report here on all handling of guns and cute IDF soldiers.

I just got the red-dot for my Sig 522. As long as I have a bench to rest on, and time to aim very carefully, I’ll be safe from all marauding Teabaggers and/or zombies.

@IanJ: I was doing some dry fire practice just now with my Ruger sp 101 with Crimson Trace laser grips. Also drafting a tribal real property ordinance.

Oh please! It’s the Attack of the Marshmallow People. All one needs to do is say “Don’t be ridiculous!” in a very stern manner and they’ll all slink away. I used this line to great effect one time when I made the conductor stop the Broadway Ltd as it was leaving Grand Central to let me off.

@Benedick: I don’t think I have the chops for that. I’ll stick to my “run away and hide” plan for when the teabags hit the fan.

Damn. I wanted to link to the Toys R Us page that advertises the laser boresight, but it seems that they have since taken the product down. Interestingly enough, a google search for “toys r us boresight” still turns up the page as the first hit.

@Prommie: Do nailboards remind anyone else of Fallout 3? More importantly, when the inevitable civil war ends in a nuclear apocalypse and we all have to pick new names, can mine be “Butcher Pete“?

@JNOVjr: Here you go.

Here’s the one I use for the initial sight in of a gun, also when mounting scopes. You still have to go out to the range and dial it in on a target at the distance you’ll be shooting at with the ammo you’ll be using, especially for a big game hunt.

If they shoot me, I’m going to be vewy vewy angwy.

@redmanlaw: Ah yeah, I saw that link. Sadly, as funny as the product, itself, was, the things that really made the original page comedy gold were all of the “testimonials” about how great of a birthday gift the boresight makes for eight-year-olds.

@blogenfreude: You’re dethpicable.

@redmanlaw: Oh, hey — mixed reviews on Iron Man 2 in our household. I thought it was Meh. Short on plot and kind of lackluster special effects. JNOVjr liked it, but he’s like Mikey — he likes everything. ;-P

@JNOV: Son of RML and I think it was like 2.5-3.0 out of 5. IM1 was way, way better, although having robots and suits battle is always a good time. I might go see it again. I did buy IM1 at Borders for $10, so we had a double feature last Friday.

Did you stay for the Thor thingie at the end? Shot just south of Santa Fe this past winter/spring. “Cowboys and Aliens” with 007 and Indiana Jones will be here for the summer. Release of the Simon Pegg-Nick Frost alien movie shot here was delayed. See “Year One”? That POS was also shot in part here.

@JNOVjr: That’s pretty kick ass. You’ll have to show me how you merged those two images. Also, I love how you’re my Jr here considering that you can’t be my Jr IRL, not that I would have wanted to name you after me. It’s just kind of sweet that you took the name I used when talking about you as your screen name when you joined this community. I like you, kiddo.

@redmanlaw: He stayed for it, but I was already outside smoking at that point. After the second AC/DC song ended, I was like, Meh. Nicotine, please. He told me about it later. It was interesting to see Leslie Bibb show up again. I used to take yoga with her.

@redmanlaw: I think maybe the reason why I enjoyed the movie so much might have something to do with the fact that my only complaint about the first movie was the lack of War Machine. IM2 delivered and I was thoroughly satisfied.

@JNOV: Well, I could’ve used one of my own internet handles, but I figured I’d save everyone the trouble of constantly asking who the hell I am.

@JNOVjr: ::sniff:: Ima cry now. You can make it all better by watching this Churchill show with me…

@redmanlaw: @JNOVjr: Oh, and why no Terrence Howard? I’m not complaining about Don Cheadle — he’s awesome. Terrence isn’t the host of Independent Lens anymore, either. Wonder if he got in some trouble or something…

@JNOV: Baaaaaw. Oh and on the topic of Howard v. Cheadle, I like them both a lot. Maybe they can work something out where Howard plays Rhodey for half of the next movie and Cheadle plays him for the other half?

@JNOV: Dunno. I heard money, and dissatisfaction with Howard’s work in the first movie. I thought he was just fine, but Cheadle was pretty good in 2.


How ’bout Apple’s mom? A little too “damsel in distress” or what? Oh, and synthesizing a new element in the garage overnight? C’mon. What would have worked better: Nick Fury (who was a white man in WW2 with the Howlin’ Commandos and I think up through the Death of Captain America 1.0), gives Stark a replacement for the palladium power element in the ticker, saying “You ain’t the only smart guy around.” Which would make sense since SHIELD is such a major tech/national security outfit that works with Stark anyway, as in the construction of some big ass sky battleships, anyway, which I believe was blowed up in a battle with the Hulk . . .
