First up: Wolfeboro, New Hampshire police commissioner Robert Copeland.
|Petulant, belligerent old brat.|
You may have heard that last week this angry old racist was overheard referring to President Obama as the N-word.
His response: "I believe I did use the N-word in reference to the current occupant of the White House. For this I do not apologize. He meets and exceeds my criteria for such."
Very nice. Nothing like being caught saying one of the most vile things possible, and then digging yourself just a little bit deeper.
Copeland's boss, the police commission chairman, claimed his statement is being "blown out of proportion." And he doesn't have the power to fire Copeland.
Well, after several days, and a small handful of Regressive Republicans condemning Copeland's remarks -- including to his credit, former presidential candidate Willard "Mitt" Romney -- Copeland did resign reluctantly.
Robert Copeland: a racist old pig* and one of our Republican Jackasses of the Week.
*No disrespect to actual pigs.
This one's just too easy. And she could have this honor bestowed upon her just about every week. But I couldn't resist.
Jackass #2: Half-term quitter Sarah Palin.
A few days ago, Simple Sarah decided to criticize the White House's, and First Lady Michelle Obama's, Twitter messages denouncing the kidnapping of several Nigerian schoolgirls. And she pretended the Twitter message was the only thing being done on the world stage to deal with this issue.
So she pounded out a message stating, "Diplomacy via Twitter is the lazy, ineffectual, naive, insulting way for America's leaders to deal with national and international issues."
So using The Twitters is the wrong way to get a message out, right?
The problem is that Simple Sarah blasted the use of social media -- wait for it -- by using her Twitter account.
Jackass #3: Former Vice President and current War Criminal, Dick Cheney.
Here's a guy who lied us into the War in Iraq, lied about weapons of mass destruction, lied about how long the war would take, lied about how it would be paid for, instituted illegal waterboarding torture programs which broke American and international laws, and outed an undercover CIA officer during wartime -- all impeachable, criminal, treasony offenses -- yet he is still walking around on the loose. (Of course, there are many countries he cannot visit because he'll be arrested upon arrival.)
A few days ago he stated that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton should be "held responsible" for the terrorist attack in Benghazi.
|Just shut that creepy mouth already.|
Perhaps he forgot that it was congressional Republicans who had cut half a billion dollars in security funding to our embassies overseas.
Perhaps he forgot that Ambassador Stevens himself chose to stay at the embassy despite warnings of attacks.
And most of all, perhaps he forgot that over 50 people were killed during the 11 "Benghazis" that occurred during his own 8 years in office.
So Hillary "clearly bears the responsibility for Benghazi." Don't blame the terrorists, right Dick? Yet he and Bush were not responsible for 9/11. That, you see, must be the fault of the terrorists.
Nice going, Dick.
Can't some computer geek somewhere hack into that electronic heart of his and shut it off already? (Too harsh?)
