Stupid crap from the mouths of Republicans.

In this post: Stupid crap from Republicans, easy egg salad, good movies.

I’ll begin my post tonight with more of the Howdygram’s intensely popular progressive political commentary. This time: STUPID CRAP FROM THE MOUTHS OF REPUBLICANS. Trust me, there’s enough material to fill a 24-volume encyclopedia but I’ve narrowed it down to a few of my favorites. Thank you, and here we go.

Speaker of the House JOHN BOEHNER: “We should not be judged on how many new laws we create. We ought to be judged on how many laws we repeal.”

Former 2012 GOP presidential primary contender RICK SANTORUM: “A woman who is raped should not be entitled to an abortion. She should welcome her horrible gift from God.”

Congressman PAUL RYAN, former 2012 GOP vice-presidential candidate: “I’m very proud of my pro-life record, and I’ve always adopted the position that the method of conception doesn’t change the definition of life.” — referring to rape as a “method of conception” when asked if it should it be legal for a woman to be able to get an abortion if she’s raped.
Congressman JOHN FLEMING of Louisiana, a state that refuses to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act while 20% of its residents live in abject poverty: “Obamacare is the most dangerous piece of legislation ever passed in Congress.”

Former California governor ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER: “I think gay marriage is something that should be between a man and a woman.”

Former 2012 GOP presidential primary contender NEWT GINGRICH: “I have enormous personal ambition. I want to shift the entire planet. And I’m doing it. I am now a famous person. I represent real power.
Right-wing talk radio assclown GLENN BECK: “The only Katrina victims we see on television are the scumbags.”

Arizona governor JAN BREWER: “Life begins from the first day of the last menstrual period of the pregnant woman.”

JOSEPH SCHEIDLER, pro-life activist and national director of the Pro-Life Action League: “I would like to outlaw contraception. Contraception is disgusting — people using each other for pleasure.”
Congresswoman MICHELE BACHMANN of Minnesota, a former 2012 GOP presidential primary contender: “If we took away the minimum wage we could potentially virtually wipe out unemployment completely because we would be able to offer jobs at whatever level.”

RANDALL TERRY, pro-life activist and founder of Operation Rescue, which became famous for blockading entrances to abortion clinics: “I want you to just let a wave of intolerance wash over you. I want you to let a wave of hatred wash over you. Yes, hate is good. It’s that simple. Our goal is a Christian nation. We have a biblical duty, we are called by God to conquer this country.”

Douchebag televangelist PAT ROBERTSON: “The feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians.”

And now ... exciting news from our Household Hints for Old People Who Like to Eat Food department! My pastry blender kitchen tool arrived this morning and I decided to make myself a mountain of easy egg salad tonight for dinner. In case you missed my post from Saturday, I read an article that a pastry blender is a brilliant and pain-free way to smash up a lot of hard-boiled eggs REALLY FAST, especially if you’re a senior citizen such as moi with severe diabetic neuropathy in your hands, you can’t stand up for more than a few minutes at a time and you hate washing a food processor. I bought my pastry blender on Amazon for about $6.95. I’d be willing to bet it works for tuna fish, too!
Sam might have to work late tonight so I think I’ll hang out for a while in the family room with a sugar-free chocolate bar and watch a couple of old movies: Free and Easy (1930), a whacked-out early talkie musical starring Anita Page, Buster Keaton and Robert Montgomery (in a bit part ... singing!), and Arsène Lupin (1932), a really good whodunit starring Lionel and John Barrymore.
Thank you for reading this.
