Heritage Foundation Very Proud Of Its Incoherent Bondage Porn Filibuster Tumblr Message

News

Hey, movie fans! Remember that Robert Frank Capra classic where Jimmy Stewart saves the day by standing up and filibustering a bill he knows in his heart to be bad? Pretty dramatic stuff, and an iconic bit of Authentic American Cornball Political Sincerity. Of course, as we all sorta-kinda know, the rules for filibusters have changed, so instead of One Brave Senator standing up and reading Collected Poems of Leonard Nimoy into the record, the minority party just says "We filibuster thee" and spits three times, and that counts. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, seeing all the stalled legislation and spit covering the Senate floor, hopes to bring back Old School filibusters: You want to stop a bill, you gotta stand up and talk.


So above is the Heritage Foundation's invocation of Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, aimed at Harry Reid's proposal to change how filibusters work. We will now pause, class, for you to ponder what is wrong with this picture.

Oh, yeah, right. Requiring future "Mr. Smiths" to stand up and talk like in the movie will actually, uh, silence "Mr. Smith" because then he can't bring the Senate to a halt silently anymore! Harry Reid hates free speech and wants to duct tape Jimmy Stewart's affable corpse!

The Heritage Foundation is so proud of this image that when a reader suggested it was maybe just a little meaningless, they reblogged the comment with a smart answer:

jasencomstock: “We don’t have a case so look, a movie.”

theheritagefoundation: Sometimes the simplest examples make the best points.

Yes, especially when anyone who's seen the movie knows that image makes no sense! We guess that the Nino Scalia School of Rhetoric is more influential than we thought!

We look forward to the Heritage Foundation's next Tumblr post, featuring a still from the movie Bulworth to argue that Loving v. Virginia was an example of judicial overreach.

Times have been tough for those Trump supporters who are fine with his rampant bigotry but are discovering he's going to screw them like any number of non-wife-like women he totally swears he's never met.

Jesse Kelly, the failed Arizona congressional candidate who thought he could take Gabby Giffords's former seat with a combination of word salad and support from white supremacists, has landed himself a sweet gig in the wingnuttosphere, where he writes columns for "The Federalist" and recently started a very dumb Youtube channel. This week, his very creative mind brings us a fantasia on America's inevitable slide into socialism, and a vow that unlike lots of sheeple, he won't go down without taking some liberal scalps. He insists he means that metaphorically, which is why he begins by a detailed description of taking a human scalp:
