“The Rally to Restore Sanity” is Disablist Shit.

From the perpetually offended Shakesville:

Dear Jon Stewart:

“The Rally to Restore Sanity” is disablist shit.

That the politics in this country have become extreme, absurd, and increasingly dangerous is not a result of mental illness; it’s the result of ignorance and bigotry—and opportunistic fuckheads willing to exploit the same, without a modicum of regard for any consequences aside from their personal gain.

The “crazy” thing (see what I did there?) about your framing what is a legitimate threat to this democracy as “insanity” is that, because of the stigma against mental illness, the issue is being taken less seriously than it ought to be. These people aren’t nutty outliers; they are knowingly and deliberately and rationally complicit in a campaign to undermine both the credibility of the democratic process and the efficacy of the US government.

George Carlin was Right

“It’s the only reason I watch auto racing. I’m waiting for some accidents, man! I want to see some cars on fire. I’m not interested in a bunch of redneck jackoffs driving 500 miles in a circle. 500 miles in a circle? Doesn’t impress me. Children can do that. I want to see some schmuck with his hair on fire running around punching his own head trying to put it out! I want to see the pits explode! I want to see cars doing 200 mile an hour cartwheels! Hey, where else besides auto racing am I going to see a 23-car collision and not be in the son of a bitch?” – Carlin

Kentucky Stomper Wants An Apology From Woman He Assaulted

Wow. Just wow….

Tim Profitt — the former Rand Paul volunteer who stomped on the head of a MoveOn activist — told told local CBS station WKYT that he wants an apology from the woman he stomped and that she started the whole thing.

“I don’t think it’s that big of a deal,” Profitt said. “I would like for her to apologize to me to be honest with you.”

“She’s a professional at what she does,” Profitt added, “and I think when all the facts come out, I think people will see that she was the one that initiated the whole thing.”

Profitt also blamed the incident on his back pain. Footage shows that Profitt stomped down on Lauren Valle’s head, neck and shoulder while she was being restrained by another man with her shoulder on the street and her head on the curb.
