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? 😉
