Tennessee State Rep. Knows Precisely How Obama Will Steal This Election

News

Good news, people of Tennessee: we get to discuss your state legislature again this morning! Oh, put away your groans. This guy you've got, state Rep. Kelly Keisling, had such a smart insight into the future of American politics that he took the liberty ofemailing it to his constituents. How's the rest of 2012 gonna play, O holy Byrdstown prophet? "A Republican member of the Tennessee state legislature emailed constituents Tuesday morning with a rumor circulating in conservative circles that President Barack Obama is planning to stage a fake assassination attempt in an effort to stop the 2012 election from happening." What's that, reader? You don't take this seriously? Well what if we told you that the rumor came from a "Florida-based conservative blogger"? Mmhmm, yep. It's all happening.


Here's where the Obama campaign's collective political acumen will apparently land us before the election. These guys are canny, what with the total hilarious transparency of their plan.

Rep. Kelly Keisling (R-Byrdstown) sent an email from his state email account to constituents containing a rumor that Obama and the Department of Homeland Security are planning a series of events that could lead to the imposition of "martial law" and delay the election. Among the events hypothesized in the email is a staged assassination attempt on the president that would lead to civil unrest in urban areas and martial law.

What's amazing -- well, a lot of this is amazing -- but what's amazing is that they think Obama would want to be an autocratic ruler for the rest of his life. Does he seem to be enjoying the job that much?

Keisling appears to have forwarded a more widely circulated email from Joe Angione, a Florida-based conservative blogger. Angione prefaces the rumor by saying it has not been confirmed but likewise notes it has not been denied. Angione also writes that people need to work to prevent the rumor from becoming reality.

Wow, let's tip our cap there to Huffington Post writer John Celock for the understated literary beauty of that trifecta of sentences that so neatly describe how insane hustlers work our politics.

1. Idiot in Florida gets a modem.

2. Idiot in Florida emails fellow idiots some hilarious thing he just made up.

3. Idiot in Florida notes that the hilarious thing he just made up has not been denied.

4. Idiot in Florida says that since the hilarious thing he just made up cannot be denied, people must work to stop it.

5. Every idiot he emailed this to believes him.

6. A wingnut state representative shares the email with his constituents.

7. Idiot liberal bloggers post about this to make fun of him.

8. Wingnut state representative wins reelection.

It's the night before the two-night Democratic primary debate extravaganza, and we're already tired. Turns out having 20 candidates spread across two nights when only six or eight of them matter is not the must-see TV we all thought it was going to be! But that's not to dissuade you from getting excited! We're excited! We're so excited! We're so ...

SCARED!

In case you need a reminder, here is how it's going to go down:

Lately he's been blowing smoke from another orifice.

After a cursory examination of the TWELVE filings in the case against California Congressman Duncan Hunter just in the past 24 hours, we can confidently declare that that guy is a fucking idiot. The prosecutors have him by every last one of his short and curlies -- which is what happens when you use your campaign credit card to pay for hundreds of thousands of dollars of ski trips, video games, tuition, and plane tickets for the family rabbit.

A rational human being would have pleaded down a year ago and given up his congressional seat, since he could cash out and make a lot more money as a lobbyist anyway. But not Duncan Hunter! He made the federal government chase him down and document every last carton of cigarettes, round of tequila, and Uber ride of shame home from his many girlfriends' houses in a 60-count indictment filed last August. And still this dumb sumbitch refused to admit he was caught, even after his lovely wife (and co-conspirator) Margaret Hunter flipped on him this month -- which is what happens when you use your campaign credit card to carry on multiple affairs and you piss off the US Attorneys enough that they put every 7 a.m. Uber ride in your indictment.
