Yet another self-beclowning

Are they all fucking retarded? Each and every single one?

Never mind, don’t answer that.

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), a leader of the “resistance,” hasn’t been doing too well lately. She told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes that, if the Republican healthcare bill is passed, “700 billion” people will lose health access. Keep in mind that our planet has about 7.3 billion people living on it. We knew the GOP proposal was ambitious, but not quite that ambitious! Maybe there should be an ongoing senility test for congresspeople?

Or for the people who keep right on re-electing people so moronic they’re barely even intellectually fit to clean my hotel room, or work a fast-food drive-thru.

But lest you think Waters is in any way unique or exceptional among Leftist droolcases, there’s also this sterling bit of nutjobbery:

It was a terrifying morning, as unarmed Republican members and staff endured nearly 10 minutes of gunfire from a politically motivated shooter during a scheduled practice for Thursday’s Congressional Baseball Game. What should have been a routine meeting to prepare for a charity event turned members of Congress into defenseless, sitting ducks.

While D.C. and the rest of the country reeled from news of the attack and awaited information about the victims, Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe stepped up to the mic and turned the conversation to gun control.

McAuliffe: “This is not what today is about, but there are too many guns on the street. We lose 93 million Americans a day to gun violence. I have long talked about this, background checks, shutting down gun show loopholes, that’s not for today’s discussion … ”

Though he initially said he wouldn’t talk politics, he doubled down on the partisan rhetoric when asked by a reporter why he was talking about it if he said he wasn’t going to talk about it. His answer? “I talk about it every day.”

McAuliffe then used an exaggerated statistic to prop up his straw man argument: “We lose 93 million Americans a day to gun violence.” In fact, he repeated the stat three times before a reporter had to correct him.

If 93 million Americans died every day, the whole U.S . population — 321 million — would be gone by Sunday.

Are they really this stupid, or just malicious fucking liars out to score political points and deny us our liberty by any means they can contrive? It’s a tough question all right, but in the end, how much does it really matter?

  1. “Are they really this stupid, or just malicious fucking liars…”

    First, embrace the healing power of “and”.

    But, seriously, they are this stupid. Every person I’ve ever known personally who went into politics was a dunderheaded fool. They don’t have enough math to count to twenty without taking off their shoes. They’re fuzzy on any order of magnitude past hundreds.

    As such, one of the things that pisses me off most about political debate is that it’s obvious the participants think themselves the smartest people on Earth, when they’re actually dumber than a box of rocks.

  2. In all fairness to McAuliffe, he may have just come from a meeting with his money launderer and just had that number stuck in his head.

  3. @ Billy Hollis: Excellent point about “and!”

    And, while I am willing to give many socialists at least a little slack, Maxine has demonstrated for years that her mental capacity is pretty well limited to the amount of money she can legally steal from the taxpayers of this country to buy votes in her district and figure out a way to pocket the rest. Like Charles Barkley said, “Poor people have been voting Democrat for decades and they’re still poor.”

  4. You can add the former Prez to the list for his reference to campaigning in all 57 states.

  5. @CW Buff: Actually, hr was just projecting what he would be doing AFTER he was elected. He never got out of campaign mode, but still managed to visit all 57 states of the muslim world/caliphate, and the way he really beclowned himself then was by bowing to his masters.
