The Flaming Dumbass Week In Review

Round up the usual suspects….

Barney Frank:

“These are some of the people who have the worst records of incompetence and irresponsibility around.”

Oddly enough, Congressman Frank was talking not about Democrats, but about Standard & Poor’s.

Chris Matthews:

“The government better create jobs–or else you’re going to have an unstable society.”

And unstable cable news pundits.

Al Gore:

“We need to have an American spring–you know, [like] the Arab spring…The nonviolent part of it isn’t finished yet, but we need to have an American spring, a kind of an American nonviolent change where people on the grass roots get involved again.”

Wait, but isn’t that what the tea parties represent, a resurgence of grass roots involvement in politics….

Joe Biden:

“They have acted like terrorists.”

Um, OK, maybe not.

But seriously, isn’t it good to see so many Americans shaking off their apathy and engaging….

Maureen Dowd:

“They were like cannibals, eating their own party and leaders alive. They were like vampires, draining the country’s reputation, credit rating and compassion. They were like zombies, relentlessly and mindlessly coming back again and again to assault their unnerved victims, Boehner and President Obama. They were like the metallic beasts in “Alien” flashing mouths of teeth inside other mouths of teeth, bursting out of Boehner’s stomach every time he came to a bouquet of microphones.”

So what your saying is, dissent is no longer the highest form of patriotism?

Peter Beinart:

“While the details of the debt ceiling deal remain fuzzy, this much is clear: Barack Obama may be president, but the Tea Party is now running Washington.”

And they are so diabolical, they did this while most tea party-affiliated members of the House voted against the bill. Crafty terrorist devils, they are!

Daniel Gross:

“And it’s difficult to escape the conclusion that America’s credit rating was intentionally sabotaged by Congressional Republicans.”

Well there ya go. How can you argue with that?

Addendum:

Oh my gosh, I nearly forgot….

John Kerry:

“And I have to tell you, I say this to you politely. The media in America has a bigger responsibility than it’s exercising today. The media has got to begin to not give equal time or equal balance to an absolutely absurd notion just because somebody asserts it or simply because somebody says something which everybody knows is not factual.”

“It doesn’t deserve the same credit as a legitimate idea about what you do. And the problem is everything is put into this tit-for-tat equal battle and America is losing any sense of what’s real, of who’s accountable, of who is not accountable, of who’s real, who isn’t, who’s serious, who isn’t?”

Awesome awesomeness.

    I misspoke. While many tea party-affiliated Republicans voted against the bill, a majority supported it. My bad.
