Today's Dispatches From The Stupid Party

We have a little bit of everything today, from conspiracy nutbaggery, to casual anti-Semitism, to oil company slurping (all h/t

Let's start with Rep. Jeff "Donut" Duncan (Stupid Party-SC) who haz him a theory:
It didn’t take long for a lawmaker to pick up the latest right-wing conspiracy theory about the Boston Marathon bombings. Just hours after controversial terrorism expert Steve Emerson reported last night on Sean Hannity’s show that unnamed “sources” told him the government was quietly deporting the Saudi national who was initially suspected in the bombing, South Carolina GOP Rep. Jeff Duncan grilled Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano on the rumor at a hearing this morning.
Duncan, a member of the House Homeland Security Committee and chairman of the Subcommittee on Oversight and Management Efficiency, harangued Napolitano for the alleged deportation, which he asserted as fact. “Now we have someone being deported for national security concerns and I’m assuming he’s got some sort of link to terror or he wouldn’t be being deported,” Duncan said. “And yet we’re going to deport him? We’re going to remove him from the scene?”
Um, no, dumbass.  That's not at all what's going on.  But I'm sure that won't stop you and your fellow fever blisters over at Fox "News."

Now for a little goyish good ol' boy colloquialism from Oklahoma:
State Rep. Dennis Johnson, R-Okla., was talking about small businesses during a floor debate, and said that sometimes customers will “try to Jew me down on a price, that’s fine. You know what? That’s free market as well.”
Johnson later apologized "to the Jews."  Well, thanks, that's very Christian of you.

While we're in Oklahoma (that most Rethuglican/ Stupid Party state of all), let's check in with one of it's Stupid Party Congresscritters, Rep. Markwayne "My Ma and Pa Couldn't Afford a Space" Mullin (Stupid Party- Exxon Mobil):
Rep. Markwayne Mullin, R-Okla., wondered in a House hearing why everyone was making such a “big deal” out of the ExxonMobil oil spill in Arkansas, and said that though the spill was “horrible,” ExxonMobil should be “patted on the back” for the way it handled it, and it shouldn’t hamper support for the Keystone XL pipeline.
The folks in Arkansas -- you know, those who experienced the tar sands crude pluming down their residential street while the media was being denied entry to the spill site by local yokels intimidated by Exxon Mobil lawyers --  might have a different view of that.  But we're certain Mullin will get more than a pat on the back from Exxon Mobil for his courageous stand.
