Texas Congresscritter Steve Stockman Invites Racist Rodeo Clown To Sit On His Lap

News

Rep. Steve Stockman has invited therodeo clown who wore a Barack Obama mask at the Missouri State Fair to come to Texas, where good old fashioned minstrelsy is still appreciated. In a press release, Stockman said


“Liberals want to bronco bust dissent. But Texans value speech, even if its speech they don’t agree with ... From Molly Ivins to Louie Gohmert and every opinion between Texans value free and open political speech. I’m sure any rodeo in Texas would be proud to have performers.”

Stockman's invitation to the clown was largely regarded as an act of professional courtesy. Ms. Ivins, who died in 2007, was unavailable for comment, but is rumored to be piiiiiiissed.

In issuing the invitation, Stockman continued the tradition of low-risk, high-profile publicity seeking that reached a peak earlier this year when he invited fellow rightwing attention whore Ted "suck on my machine gun" Nugent to be his guest at the State of the Union address. Yay, free speech is safe from the liberal crackdown on dissent, and it is once again safe for decent godfearing Americans to have a good clean laugh at a guy hoping Obama will get stomped by a bull.

As for his roping Molly Ivins into his invocation of free speech, we suppose she might be honored to be placed at the opposite pole of a spectrum whose other endpoint is Louie Gohmert. Molly was pretty much a free-speech absolutist, but she also never thought that incredibly stupid speech should go unchallenged. It's a shame that we can't do a Woody Allen and pull her out from behind a curtain so she can tell Steve Stockman he knows nothing of her work.

Actually, we sort of can. We'd like to think Mr. Stockman remembers that, in a 1996 column, Molly called him Texas's "proudest contribution to the national Knot-Head Quotient."

Of course, that was near 20 years ago now, and his then-singular achievements in dumb have been regularly lapped by his fellow Texans. We guess he can only try to reach his former glory, but standing in solidarity with racist rodeo clowns inviting bulls to stomp on the US president is certainly a worthwhile start.

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!

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.
