SCANNERS!

Straight From The Dept. Of WHAT THE BLINDING FUCK???

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) to McClellan: Why couldn’t you just shut up?
Rep. Steve King (R-Douche nozzle)
Who can forget Rep Steve King’s horrible words about Obama back in Iowa?
King: “And I will tell you that, if he is elected president, then the, the radical Islamists, the, the al-Qaida, and the radical Islamists and their supporters, will be dancing in the streets in greater numbers than they did on September 11…"
Well, he’s baaaack. In one of the most reprehensible lines of questioning today (during Scott McClellan's testimony) - and Lord knows there were many as Republicans desperately try to outdo each other on who can cover Bush’s ass best - GOP stooge Steve King takes the cake with this gem:
“Couldn’t you have taken this to the grave with you and done this country a favor?”
Video here - see it to believe it.
Your government hard at work! Fucking shame on you, Iowans who voted for this douche nozzle - SHAAAAME!!!

Put your head down on the desk, put your big head down on the fucking desk. No more voting for you. See icon & tags for more.

Finally, Someone Else Says It.

Tim Russert Blew It on Iraq. So Why Are We Canonizing Him?
The delirium in the press at Tim Russert's passing has been strange. As a broadcaster he was not much better than average, which is saying very little. He could be a sharp questioner, but not when it really counted and when courage was required. He was tough with George Bush in a February 2004 interview. He taxed him with faking the reasons to attack Iraq. But in the years before the 2003 attack, I used to hear Russert being merciless to those questioning whether Saddam Hussein had the nukes and bioweapons alleged by the Bush Administration and its co-conspirators in the press, prominent among them Russert himself.

Another Dispatch From The Dept. Of WHAT THE BLINDING FUCK?

Teacher in trouble for burning crosses on kids

Board votes to fire him, says he was preaching Christianity
In this photo released by the school district in Mount Vernon, Ohio, a student with a branded cross on his arm is shown.
MOUNT VERNON, Ohio - A school board in central Ohio voted Friday to move ahead on firing a science teacher accused of preaching his Christian beliefs in class and using a device to burn the image of a cross on students' arms.

The Mount Vernon school board voted 5-0 to pass a resolution of intent to terminate the contract of middle school teacher John Freshwater.

Board attorney David Millstone said Freshwater is entitled to a hearing to challenge the dismissal. A lawyer for Freshwater said he will request such a hearing.

A report by independent investigators found that Freshwater also taught creationism in his science class and was insubordinate in failing to remove a Bible and other religious materials from his classroom.

School board members gathered a day after consulting firm H.R. On Call Inc. released its report. The community is about 40 miles northeast of Columbus.

The report comes one week after a family filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Columbus against Freshwater and the school district, saying Freshwater burned a cross on their child's arm that remained for three or four weeks.
