Show Me The NASCAR Fax!

So, folks have been asking where Americans draw the line on federal budget cuts. We think we’ve found it:

Rep. Betty McCollum (D-MN) alerted Capitol Police Thursday after a threatening fax arrived at her office attacking her proposal to strip Pentagon sponsorship from NASCAR teams.

It’s very, very nasty. And it’s yours, after the jump.

TPM doesn’t report where the fax came from — doesn’t sound like Minnesota Nice to us — but here’s a clue:

“We’ve had calls,” Bill Harper, McCollum’s Chief of Staff, told TPM. “Lots of Mississippi people, North Carolina people. We had a Florida person.”

Florida? Rush, you stinker.

Translation: it’s okay to cut funding to other shit because I don’t give a shit about it, but not MY shit.

Why is the US America gubbiment paying millions to millionaires to turn left all the time?

Cartman was right, even he isn’t ignorant enough to be a NASCAR driver fan.

@ManchuCandidate: I’m reminded of Mitch Hedberg:

I want to be a race car passenger. Just a guy who bugs the driver. “Say, man, can I turn on the radio? You should slow down. Why do we gotta keep going in circles? Can I put my feet out the window? Man, you really like Tide.”

@jaycubed: Perhaps Butters can send some supplies to the fan.

I saw auto racing as a child in post apocalypse London. At Crystal Palace. Even though I was perhaps 6 years old I could see the ‘race’ was about the crash. And wonder about my mother’s interest.

Pretty much. Never understood why a significant portion of NASCAR fans think ovals are better than a road course (they actually do right turns!)

I preferred smashup derby when I was a kid.


Indeed – NASCAR would be *far* more entertaining if they made half the field turn right, on the same track. :)

@Benedick: I’m reading Bill Bryson’s At Home right now, and he starts out with a detailed description of how huge of a deal the designing and building of Crystal Palace was for Victorian England. Now I need to see it.

@Nabisco: I was telling Son of RML just the night before last about how the Brits fucked up some of the dinos on display at the Crystal Palace in the 1850s, especially the iguanadon.

The reason for “phuck traitor obama” opposition to the President is obviously solely political and philosophical as most white conservative southerners avow and definitely not racist. I really appreciate them not spelling the f word with an f. The ph substitution kept me from getting offended. So of course we can now have honest and open discussions with these folks while we’re all seated at the table of logic.
