Tale told by an idiot

The good thing about Republican leaders is that you don't have to smear them. The bad news is that the wonderful job they do of making themselves look like idiots doesn't seem to affect their standing as Republican leaders.

It takes a certain kind of brain to see a link between legal abortion and illegal immigration. That brain belongs to Tom Delay.
"If we had those 40 million children that were killed over the last 30 years, we wouldn't need the illegal immigrants to fill the jobs that they are doing today. Think about it."
said he to a college audience. To be sure, he's playing inventions on a theme by Zell Miller, who doesn't need me or anyone else to provide further evidence for a diagnosis of idiocy. His linking of the alleged ills of the Social Security system with Roe Vs. Wade provides everything you need.

Neither needs me to elaborate on the use of the term "Children" or the distorted linking of dubious claims into some crude simulacrum of a logical presentation and the last thing I would recommend is that anyone take Delay's advice to think about it. For one thing it leads straight to the Lebensborn breeding project to replace racial inferiors with Blond workers and provide cannon fodder for wars of aggression. It's a well worn path that leads steeply downhill.

The only real link between the straw men of immigration and abortion and Social Security is the Republican Party and its need to burn as many them as brightly as possible so as to hide the corruptions, perversions and high crimes of that party in the glare.

Max Blumenthal took video, now playing at the Huffington Post and apparently was escorted out of the building for his pains - too late of course. If there is any justification for a free internet, making it harder for them to tell different lies to different audiences is it.

Delays comments don't surprise me.

What does surprise me, is that he doesn't get laughed off the stage when making these comments. The blind obedience of the Wingnut loyalists is amazing really.

I wonder what's next? Gay marriage is putting our troops in jeopardy? Corporate tax cuts are bad for al Qaeda? Democrats hate America? - wait, they've already tried that one.

Why is Delay not in jail yet?

I am still in awe of that statement. The aborted babies could have provided a wonderful supply of cheap, exploitable labor?

What amazes me is that these are supposedly college students.

Must have gotten into school via daddy's connections. Sure as hell wasn't SAT scores.

Capt. Fogg said...

Whether they would be cheap labor, or a welfare burden depends on what they're selling today. They will say anything they think any group wants to hear and hope that bloggers with video cameras aren't around - like this time.

I wouldn't be surprised if they were talking about bringing back slavery so we could compete better in the world market.

When I was in college we would have dealt with him differently!
