Asshat of the Day: GOP Hopeful, Ron Paul

     Texas Congressman Ron Paul made a really stupid comment during the GOP debate tonight.

They attack us because we’ve been over there. We’ve been bombing Iraq for 10 years. We’ve been in the Middle East.

     Mate, have you looked at a calendar lately?  You do realize it’s 2007, right?  And, that, uh, 9/11 wasn’t the first time they’d tried to bomb the World Trade Center?
     Oh … and that guy, next to you there?  He was the Mayor of New York when that crap went down…

     Seriously, when you manage piss off Rudy Giuliani, who’s pretty well known for keeping an even keel, you should know you’ve done something pretty damn stupid:

As someone who lived through the attack of September 11 — that we invited the attack because we were attacking Iraq — I don’t think I’ve ever heard that before, and I’ve heard some pretty absurd explanations for September 11th…

     You made a gigantic ass of yourself on national television.  You also managed to bolster a great deal of support for your opponent.  So Ron, put your Asshat of the Day award on your mantle.  You deserve it!

     A dishonorable mention, of course, goes to second-time weiner, Fred Phelps, of the Westboro Baptist Church.  I won’t link to his “God Hates America” website, but I will, at the very least, copy the text of today’s “special message” from the Moron Majority:

WBC will preach at the memorial service of the corpulent false prophet Jerry Falwell, who spent his entire life prophesying lies and false doctrines like “God loves everyone”.  

There is little doubt that Falwell split Hell wide open the instant he died.  The evidence is compelling, overwhelming, and irrefragable.  To wit:

1.  Falwell was a true Calvinistic Baptist when he was a young preacher in Springfield, Missouri, and sold his soul to Free-Willism (Arminianism) for lucre.

2.  Falwell bitterly and viciously attacked WBC because of WBC’s faithful Bible preaching — thereby committing the unpardonable sin — otherwise known as the sin against the Holy Ghost.

3.  Falwell warmly praised Christ-rejecting Jews, pedophile-condoning Catholics, money-grubbing compromisers, practicing fags like Mel White, and backsliders like Billy Graham and Robert Schuler, etc.  All for lucre — making him guilty of their sins.

Falwell is in Hell, Praise God!

     Well, Fred, you wouldda gotten the award this time.  But, you’re a loser.

     Of course, that’s no news, now is it?  😉

    Did you read the 9/11 commission’s report? Ron Paul is right – that is why they hate us.

    Now whether that is avoidable is another story.

  2. Bradford C. Says:

    You don’t think maybe the 1993 bombings were a result of our first invasion of Iraq? When we had started bombing them for ten years? A bombing that didn’t deter Rudy Giuliani from headquartering the disaster response headquarters in the biggest terrorist target of the city?

  3. Jason Says:

    It’s almost like Phelps gets dumber and more absurd with every word. Can we all go make a scene at his funeral?

    Buddyw:
    I did read the 9/11 Commission Report. I have a printed copy. You obviously read the Cliff Note’s version from the Washington Post. That is to say that your opinion has absolutely nothing to do with the truth.

    Bradford C.:
    The 1993 bombings were a direct result of a radical Jihad declared against the a “Paper Tiger’s attempt at Globalization” — straight from the mouth of the man responsible. Bin Laden’s reasons were widely reported, and his personal interviews clearly blamed us *not* for attacking Iraq (who Bin Laden himself has stated that he despises as a “false” religious state), but rather for the “the Jewish state” which he believes is a direct result of the United States. Like many zealots, he also clearly doesn’t remember History, as it was the United Nations, not the United States, who created the Israeli state… He would’ve been closer if he’d blamed the UK, who’ve been subverting the region for hundreds of years…

    History rules.

    Mark,

    What you probably DON’T know is Rudy is directly responsible for the attacks of 9/11. Bin Laden (or as he was known then “Master Bin Bling”) had his prostitution business completely shut down by Rudy and vowed to avenge himself on the whole city.

    History does indeed rule.

  6. Barry Says:

    Every time I hear about something mind-numbingly non-Christian thing Fred Phelps and the WBC are doing, I want to run to Kansas and take all the children out of his influence. And some of the adults, too, maybe, who don’t know any better. To me it’s not much different than rescuing children from a mentally and emotionally abusive father.

    How can his (Phelps) beliefs become so twisted from what they’re supposed to be? I feel like I should do some research on him to understand him better, but it feels like trying to do research on a years-old moldy corpse.

  7. Jason Says:

    Kevin, I don’t know anything about this prostitution business, but the logic behind that argument is flawed. Do you really think that all of the hijackers suicide bombed NYC because of Osama’s prostitution ring? Do you really think Osama would be so pissed off at America for ruining his whore business that he would make himself the world’s biggest fugitive and the focus of a multi-country man hunt? The guy had a fortune, I hardly think that he would have missed a couple of cheap prostitutes. And why the Pentagon? Did he not like the shape?

    As for Mark, you beat me to the punch. Impressive knowledge. History is the key to understanding every event that occurs in this world. Action -> Reaction. Vicious cycle.

  8. Jason Says:

    By the way, if that was sarcasm Kevin, disregard. I’m a bit slow today. If not, pills are readily available. I checked out your blog after and realized I’m a moron.

  9. Jason Says:

    I just don’t see how you can blame anyone else for 9/11. I know three close friends who lost their fathers in the attacks, so maybe I just can’t look at this objectively. All I know is that no one but the terrorists made up their minds to take innocent lives that day. I don’t really care what we did over there. A war doesn’t justify attacking civilians, especially under the concept of Jihad. The meaning of Jihad is widely misunderstood.

  10. Mark Says:

    ROLMMFAO! Hey, It happens. I regularly post sarcastic/spoof commentary on his blog, so he’s just returning the favor. 😉

  11. Jason Says:

    At first glance I thought he was one of the conspiracy nuts. 😉 It just hit a nerve. The ironic part is I just had an argument with one about the same subject earlier today that almost ended in a brawl. But that’s what happens living close NYC.

  12. Tish Says:

    You’ve been tagged – again! 😉

  13. John Kaiser Says:

    Boy. Falwell is taking it from the left and the right.

    Also, I guess Ron Paul sealed any infinitesimal chance he had at winning the primary with that comment.
