The United States of Derp

I’m sure it will now be no problem at all to discuss serious policy matters with all those teapartiers and libertarian cranks now that the “fever” has broken.   Why just look at yesterday as the Electoral College members gathered in their State’s respective capitols to vote:

three Romney electors in Arizona tried one more time to convince everyone that Obama wasn’t born in the United States:

Elector Don Ascoli said the fact Obama got more popular votes is irrelevant to the truth.

“The majority of the people had no dream that Bill Clinton did what he did until a young lady had a blue dress and proved he did,” Ascoli said. “And he had to come out and apologize to the world because he lied to you and me.”

Thereby proving…uh…something, I guess.

Fatster's Roundup



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
