I know, I know, it's wrong to laugh. But I find it amusing when someone gets some poetic justice. I call it Karmedy.

People at CPAC are smart, know things

Ahahahaha!! Not really.
It's that most wonderful time of the year. Spring is just around the corner, pitchers and catchers have reported, and the circus sideshow-cum-white power rally known as CPAC is here to horrify entertain us all.
Let's take a look at what some of the GOP's shining stars have said so far at this year's "put a tinfoil hat on over your Klan hood" party.

First up: Marco Rubio

Speaking before the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Maryland, Rubio told radio and TV host Sean Hannity that “if we wanted to defeat them militarily, we could do it. [Obama] doesn’t want to upset Iran.” 

 Right. Obama isn't doing enough "militarily" to defeat ISIS. It's not as if he's dropped a few thousand bombs on them or anything. And obviously, this is because Iran, ruled by Shia clerics, would hust really hate it if this Suni terrorist group were to be defeated! You know, that terrorist group who goes around killing anyone they consider to be infidels like, say, Shiites.

Although, I suppose it's a lot to ask for Rubio to have known that Iran and ISIS were completely opposed. It's not as if  a quick Google search for "Iran + ISIS" yields a bunch of headlines like

Iran will do what it takes to fight ISIS -

War with Isis: Iran joins 'Great Satan's' fight against militants ... ›ISIS claims responsibility for attack on Iranian ambassador residence

Iran Joins ISIS Fight

And there's no reason to think he should be some sort of expert on foreign affairs just because he's a  member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and a member of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations.

 Next up: Reality TV "star," fake swampbilly and actual scumbag Phil Robertson.
"You lose your religion, according to John Adams, and there goes your morality. We're almost there," Robertson said. "I hate to admit I got my facts from the CDC the day before yesterday, 110 million, 110 million Americans now have a sexually transmitted illness."

 "There is a penalty to be paid from what the beatniks, and it morphed into the hippies -- you say, what do you call the 110 million with the sexually transmitted illness -- it is the revenge of the hippies! Sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll have come back to haunt us in a bad way."

Right, because before the "beatniks" and the hippies, it's not like American GIs were coming home from the war with "the clap."

  It's not as if famous men from Christopher Columbus to Napolean Bonaparte died of syphilis. It's not as if the disease known as "smallpox" was given that name to distinguish it from "the great pox," aka syphilis.


Hmm, when exactly did the "beatniks" appear? And the hippies? Because surely, cases must have spiked right around that time, right?

Also, too, funny how you cherry-pick this John Adams quote to represent the wisdom of the Founding Fathers. You could just as easily have used one from Thomas Jefferson, like "History, I believe, furnishes no example of a priest-ridden people maintaining a free civil government. This marks the lowest grade of ignorance of which their civil as well as religious leaders will always avail themselves for their own purposes"

 So, what's your solution to this problem of std's? Wait, let me guess. . . increased condom usage? Better sex education?
Haha, of course not. Don't be silly!

"You want a godly, biblical, medically safe option? One man, one woman, married for life," he said. 
 You're disease free and she's disease free, you marry, you keep your sex right there. You won't get sick from a sexually transmitted disease." 

Interesting. I assume that must be how you conducted yourself throughout your life, right?

Of course!

And here I thought it was a good idea to take advice about sexual morality froma guy who looks like he just raped Ned Beatty!
