WHO elects these crazies??

FromJezebel.com:

Republican State Representative Vito Barbieri from the state of Idaho thinks that a woman's vagina has some sort of direct passageway to her stomach because, I mean, how else does the pee come out?

This rather impressive display of anatomical ignorance (h/t Salon) came during a Idaho House State Affairs Committee hearing where the members heard testimony on a bill that "would ban doctors from prescribing abortion-inducing medication through telemedicine."

Our friend Vito asked Dr. Julie Madsen, who was testifying against the bill, if women could simply swallow a camera in order for doctors to perform remote gynecological exams. Madsen I assume chocked back cries of utter disdain and horror before explaining that "swallowed pills do not end up in the vagina."

From RawStory.com:

vada state Assemblywoman Michele Fiore (R) plans to introduce a bill she said would provide more options for cancer patients — but actually relies on what medical experts call a myth, Think Progress reported.

“If you have cancer, which I believe is a fungus, and we can put a pic line into your body and we’re flushing with, say, salt water, sodium cardonate through that line and flushing out the fungus,” Fiore said on her radio show over the weekend. “These are some procedures that are not FDA-approved in America that are very inexpensive, cost-effective.”

As Ralston Reports noted, Fiore likely meant to say “sodium bicarbonate,” commonly known as baking soda.

From Daily Kos

"Rep. Glenn Grothman (R-Wis.) reportedly said at a town hall in his district last week that constituents should monitor purchases made with debit cards from Food Share, which is Wisconsin's name for the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.

Grothman "told the people in attendance to keep an eye on the types of things people on Food Share buy at the grocery store," Oshkosh Northwestern Media reported Monday.
Because that's what poor Americans really need, to have the whole store looking over their shoulder when they're buying groceries, looking to see if there's anything there that Congressman Glenn Grothman needs to know about. Don't you think you should be buying generic-brand rice, not the fancy stuff? Do your kids really need romaine lettuce? What the hell's wrong with iceberg? A bag of chips? You. Monster.

Idiots Among Us - Political

The 2016 Presidential elections will be in full swing soon, so I'm just going to collect the ridiculous comments made by ridiculous candidates and non-candidates.

My first quote is as follows: (copied from Daily Kos)

Former New York City mayor and 2008 presidential primary flop Rudy Giuliani is basking in all the attention he's gotten since saying that "I do not believe that the president loves America" because "He wasn’t brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up through love of this country."

“Some people thought it was racist — I thought that was a joke, since he was brought up by a white mother, a white grandfather, went to white schools, and most of this he learned from white people,” Mr. Giuliani said in the interview.

Yeah

Sorta Isn't You

Monday Morning Smile

I used to watch Brian Williams when I watched the national news, a long time ago. As the replacement for Tom Brokaw, he seemed like a good, honest newscaster.

Over the weekend it was apparent that he wasn't as honest as he appeared.

He is currently on hiatus or "the next several days".

An NBC source claims that "Brokaw wants Williams' head on a platter. He is making a lot of noise at NBC that a lesser journalist or producer would have been immediately fired or suspended for a false report."

This came about when Williams admitted to being 'not so accurate' in telling on NBC that while he was in Iraq in 2003, he was flying in a helicopter that "was forced down after being hit by an RPG." Lie.

Then came the lie he told about what he saw during Hurricane Katrina

As you might expect, the internet exploded when these lies aired. Memes are sprouting up everywhere. Here are some of my favorites:

Monday Morning Smile (24 hours late)

Apologies for the late post. I was caught up in absolutely nothing and just forgot to post.

I have a dark sense of humor and find this vine funny. If it offends you, I'm sorry
