A little slip of the tongue?

"I am not a good American...I prefer to form my own opinions" - George Carlin

Meet Jon Burning, the attorney general of the state I live in...Nebraska. This man is the epitome of the absolute worse in politics. Among other things, he panders to...you guessed it...the less than average I.Q. set....the ABC Zeroes. Bruning is running for the U.S. Senate in 2012 against Ben Nelson, the uncumpetant (sic), as the Tea Nutters Candidate. Unfortunately, Ben Nelson isn't much better. Nelson DemRepug) sure as hell needs replacing, however Bruning would be a sorry choice. But that is another rant.

I have never liked this arrogant, phony son of a bitch, and he is the perfect candidate for the numb skull tea bagging nitwits.

Here then the" working people's" candidate making fun of, and belittling the less fortunate of our society. The comment takes on even more poignancy given that 70% of Nebraska's farmers receive some form of Federal assistance.

BTW, he has come forth since making this comment and stated that it was a poor choice of words, or something to that effect. Isn't it always...after the fucking fact...and now that the five second sound bite nitwits have heard his earlier comments. Ashwipe!

 


Bruning: Well I'm up, this week on Tuesday night or on Monday night I'm in Broken Bow. And the road superintendant, he says we're trying to build a road in Sargent Nebraska. And they've got all this equipment out there in Sargent, sitting on the side of the road and it's not doing anything. And what's going on? Well somebody found a Burying Beetle. A little bitty beetle and they stop the whole project. One Burying Beetle. And so the biologist has to go out there and he sets this traps and you've seen these buckets right? They put a rat carcass in the bottom and the beetles crawl up and they fall into the bottom of it. And they put all these buckets up and down the side of the road and they capture all the Burying Beetles. The biologist goes out in the morning, grabs the beetles and they take them 2 miles down and they gently let the beetles out. So that the beetles will survive. Some farmer he's got a little more sense than the biologist or EPA or whoever it is. And the farmer walks out there with his video camera one night because the raccoons figure out the beetles are in the bucket. And it's like grapes in a jar. The raccoons, they're not stupid, they're going to do the easy way if we make it easy for them, just like welfare recipients all across America. If we don't incentive to work they're going to take the easy way out

(Note to self: Do not read Jaded's posts within 30 minutes of eating.)

Um, at least he didn't compare welfare recipients to Muslim raccoons???

intell---I apologize. I continually forget about the one hour lag, or whatever the deuce it is. I will endeavor to post at least one hour prior to your dinner/supper time in them there hills, from now on ;-)

As to his comparsion...a lily white "Christian" polecat, ought not be making comparisons of any ilk. It does not escape me that his surname is of Teutonic origin. Just sayin.

BTW, I'm getting angry just looking at his sorry mug in the video. He strikes a nerve for sure with this ol Roy.

I saw this nitwit on MSNBC this morning. Fortunately, it was after breakfast. What gets me is how these assholes complain about people not working when it's their ilk who sent all of our frigging jobs packing overseas.

jadedj said...

Mr. C---Yes, and just imagine what an asshole as attorney general he is.

In 2006 I actually registered as a Repuke so I could vote against Pete Rickets (who wanted to go to Washington to repeal the death tax, so he could inherit his daddy's BILLIONS without paying taxes)in the primary and then held my nose and voted for the "Benator" in the general election.

Be safe. NEVER vote Republican. This guy's ass is slapping him in the face. Hate, bigotry and idiocy seem to be contagious diseases circulating among the Republicans.

We need welfare as a safety net for the old and the young and for those in need that can't work or cant find work; however we must admit there are a large number of people who expect welfare for life - who milk the system rather than work a low paying job.
I live near a couple in their early thirties that are, for all practical purposes, retired to welfare and have been for about five years. I see them sitting on their porch during the day, smoking and talking on their cell phone. They have one child which was their ticket to the program. Both are physically capable of work but they would lose 'entitlements' if they worked.

Except for the infirmed, welfare should be a work study program with health care, child care, and job placement - and limited in length.

We have suffered a number of incidents like this recently nationally and locally, a state house repub. here said the state should shoot Mexicans from helicopters like they do the feral swine. Did not hurt him one bit, in fact he said it was what everyone in his district was thinking.
They continue to say these things because it rarely hurts them. The Republican base loves it, rewards it. Hey the first few years the Nazi's were getting radical and then were elected, they only joked and threatened Jews and gays. I don't expect the enemy lists to result in any killings or prison time here for another 6 years or so. Hope they can't find out who owned this computer.

JJ, this guy could easily be a Tennessee representative. We had one down here who became livid during a committee hearing when told by health department officials that they were prevented (by Federal law) from asking about a woman's residency status during prenatal exams provided by the state. His comment? "I guess they'll just go out and breed like rats, then!" or something to that effect.

Ben Nelson is the worst kind of asshat, in my book. A Repub couldn't possibly be any worse than a Dem who won't vote core Demorcratic values. He's caused Obama more problems than Boehner ever will... primary that jackass.

Tom Harper said...

I also did a post on that inbred asswipe. His "apology" was issued by a spokesman, something about Bruning's previous comment being "inartfully worded" or whatever.

Maybe Ben Nelson persuaded Bruning to make that comment, as a sort of re-election insurance for Nelson.

jadedj said...

Kulkuri---Well that's a damned bitter pill. Hellofa strategy though.

Leslie P---I never have, and I never will. What is amazing to me is I never thought I would prefer Dick Nixon to what we have these days, but he was a piker compared to modern day Republican goons.

Ol'B---I don't know if that is true, and it may well be, but I have far less problems with that than the 1% gang and mega-corporations and their lackeys butt fucking the rest of us. And this bozo is particularly onerous to me. He's 42. He graduated from UNL Law School in '94. He ran and won a state legislator position in '96. He won that seat twice. Then Attorney General twice. In other words, he's a career politician who has never had to do a lick of work in his privileged life. Now he wants to be a U. S. Senator. Fact is, he is paid $95,000 per year as AG and he spends most of his time on the road running for the Senate. He is gone more than he is in his office. Talking about free-loading. This asswipe is an expert at it.

t y f---I wish you weren't correct, but they do seem to come out like roses after opening their fat mouths spewing their vile.

As to the computer thing. Stalin and Hitler would have loved this technology for keeping up with dissidents. There is no reason to think we aren't being identified, labelled and red flagged, just as they would have done. Truth is, the second that you first logged online, you were identified. There are no more hiding places.

Squatlo---I am not at all surprised and am here to tell you, it's not just in the South, to state the obvious.

Ben Nelson...oh yeah...my blood pressure rises 25 points just at the mention of his name. He showed his ass and his allegiance back during the health care reform "debates". And now he's mouthing the, "we need to cut back entitlements" mantra (read SOCIAL SECURITY, MEDICARE and in particular, MEDICAID). Fucking snake.

Tom---Your theory may hold up...God knows they sleep together...philosophically, at least.

Professor Chaos said...

Jeezus what a prick! No wonder the teabaggers like him!

Harlequin said...

so sad that this kind of lowest common denominator of crassness and thoughtlessness is seen as a ( gag) role model ( gag again).
if only he ( and others of his ilk) would pay attention to the wise saying: a closed mouth gathers no feet.

but, that might take an open mind.... sigh.

jadedj said...

Professor---They do like their pricks, don't they?

Harlequin---I like that. I'm definitely going to "borrow" it ;-)

Chimp said...

This country is going to hell (and I don't beieve in hell)!!! Unfortunately these White Christianista Repuplicans have a fanatical following and probably feel that if they elect the worst politicians the RAPTURE will come that much sooner and they will be in the arms of their loving, caring, Republican Jesus!

Dusty,Hells most vocal Bitch said...

I love how the extreme right pits one American against another. And sadly the ones w/low IQ's won't even realize that is what is being done...they will shake their head and agree.

jadedj said...

Chimp---I I thought that would happen, I'd the first to vote for them. Good riddance.

D,H m v B---Damned frustrating, isn't it.

Punch said...

Back in the day, you could call them coons and no one cared.
Is that a Big Red N in white on his red shirt.

jadedj said...

Punch---It's the "day" progressives have been trying to get rid of for the last 40 years.

The Red N is indeed a red...N. It stands for Nasty, as in motherfucker.
