A Day That Shall Live In Dumbassedness

Quite a busy day in the Flaming Dumbass newsroom! Your Daily Flaming Dumbass has outlived its usefulness as a blog conceit. Just too many weiners lately.

First, the Peter Principle found a new poster child! None other than your Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper:

“The term ‘Muslim Brotherhood’…is an umbrella term for a variety of movements, in the case of Egypt, a very heterogeneous group, largely secular, which has eschewed violence and has decried Al Qaeda as a perversion of Islam,” Clapper said. “They have pursued social ends, a betterment of the political order in Egypt, et cetera….In other countries, there are also chapters or franchises of the Muslim Brotherhood, but there is no overarching agenda, particularly in pursuit of violence, at least internationally.”

To find out more about the “largely secular,” agenda-free, nonviolent character of the Muslim Brotherhood, DiscoverTheNetworks.org is a great place to start:

“It should be known that jihad and preparation towards jihad are not only for the purpose of fending off assaults and attacks of Allah’s enemies from Muslims, but are also for the purpose of realizing the great task of establishing an Islamic state and strengthening the religion and spreading it around the world.”


On the home front (not that I would ever live in Chicago), apparently reparations for slavery are a hot item in certain Dem municipal elections. Who knew? Behold this bizarre headline (but no more bizarre than the story to which it is affixed) from The Chicago Tribune:

Mayoral candidates go after Emanuel on taxes, slavery reparations

Also cool!

Moving on to news from CPAC (as if the whole GOProud fiasco wasn’t funny enough) from our friends on the nutter Paulite fringe (a triple redundancy), comes this shining moment in the history of conservative movement-building:

Ron Paul Supporters Scream “War Criminal” At Dick Cheney

More coolness! Our own right-wing version of Code Pink! Heart be still.

Didn’t I tell ya? We were rockin’ like Dokken today!

But wait! There’s more!

Donald Trump addressed CPAC.

And there’s more, but this post is done.

A great day.

If you’re into flaming dumbasses. As it were. Not that there’s anything wrong with that….
