CPACer Jokes About Austin Suicide Plane Attack; Brown Thinks It’s about HIM!

This happens all the time. It's just that when "conservatives" gather in Washington for their annual conference, we get to see first-hand how consistently strange, weird, and not funny these people are. Yuck-Yuck, WHAT A HOOT! Two dead and 13 injured in Austin, two critically. Now that's really rich material for a joke. And we haven't even mentioned Tim Pawlenty's Tiger Woods golf club "joke" on the day Woods asked reporters to leave his wife and kids alone: “I think we can learn a lot from that situation, not from Tiger, but from his wife. She said, ‘I’ve had enough.’ She said, ‘No more.’ I think we should take a page out of her playbook and take a nine iron and smash the window out of big government. We've had enough.” Then Pawlenty swings a phantom golf club with chopping, bashing motions. Yuck-Yuck. Another side-splitting wingnut joke.

These are examples of right wing “humor” and inappropriate expressions of hubris. Twice Senator Brown raises the “connection” with his campaign. So he’s tacitly embracing violence because “people are frustrated” and there’s a “logjam” in Washington, “at least until I got here”?

First, get over yourself, Brown “41”. Second, if you want to associate yourself and your campaign with the kind of violence that occurred in Austin, good luck justifying it. Jackass.

Is right wing conservatism a form of mental illness?
