Republican Congressman Insults Michelle Obama

Oh no you didn't!!!!!!

The always tactful and gentlemanly Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-WI) was overheard talking on the phone, retelling an incident in which he said about Michelle Obama: "She lectures us on eating right while she has a large posterior herself."

Jim Sensenbrenner, a fat bastard by all visual evidence, is obviously untethered from all sense of reason and tact.

I really don't know what else to say about this except that if I were Sensenbrenner I'd watch my "large posterior" while in Washington lest it catch a beatdown from Michelle's husband.

In all seriousness this is pretty foul and totally cringeworthy. I am truly stunned by the insensitivity.

There are far more qualified and eloquent people out there that will undoubtedly take this asshole down. I hereby recuse myself from partaking in what will definitely and deservedly be a most legendary smackdown.

I do reserve the right to remark that Michelle Obama has a slammin' body... No disrespect Prez.

The Iraq War Is Officially Over!

After 8 years, 9 months, 4484 American Military Casualties and 33186 American troops wounded the Iraq War is over.

The last convoy of American troops drove into Kuwait on Sunday signaling the end of the nearly nine-year war in Iraq.

The crossover into Kuwait brought a close to a final troop withdrawal drawn out over weeks of ceremonies in and around Iraq

As usual the Republicans and the attack dogs at Fox News have slammed President Obama mercilessly over the withdrawal. I guess they have conveniently forgotten that it was their man, George W. Bush who put this timeline for troop withdrawal in place.

Newt Gingrich told CBS "People do not understand what much the Iranians have penetrated Iraq, and that the vacuum we've created will lead to..."

Mitt Romney warned on "Fox News Sunday: "I think we're going to find that this president, by not putting in place a status-of-forces agreement with the Iraqi leadership, has pulled our troops out in a precipitous way..."

Rick Perry said on "Fox News Sunday: “The idea that a commander in chief would stand up and signal to the enemy a date certain of which we’re going to pull our troops out is irresponsible,”.

Michelle Bachmann On Face the Nation said: "We are there as the nation that liberated these people. And that's the thanks that the United States is getting after 4,400 lives were expended and over $800 billion? And so on the way out, we're being kicked out of the country? I think this is absolutely outrageous...." She even demanded that Iraq "reimburse the United States fully for the amount of money that we have spent to liberate these people."

Ron Paul (who is obviously a lunatic) said in an editorial: "While I applaud the spirit of this announcement – since all our troops should come home from overseas".

Rick Santorum probably said something derogatory but nobody cared....

Apparently for all Republicans (except for Ron Paul) the 9 year occupation/war of Iraq just hasn't been long enough. Perhaps if the one of the GOP candidates win the presidency they can send all the troops back.

"NEWT GINGRICH"... a Bad Lip Reading

Another Funny Or Die classic... Please wait until the 1:40 mark... It's deadly!

Newt Nabs Game Changing Endorsement...... No Wait!

Gary Busey appeared at the holiday party of Republican strategist Ron Bonjean over the weekend where he dropped a Busey bomb! Gary announced that he was throwing his enormous hat in with former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

"I've never met Newt but I know what he stands for".

Strong words from Busey... But he didn't mean it. Busey refuses to be pinned down. He cant be stopped nor contained!

The very next day Busey said this...

"It is not time for me to be endorsing anyone at this time! When there are the two final candidates, then I will endorse."

Newt must be crushed by this news and rightfully so. Who will counter the crazy person endorsement that Mitt Romney has seemingly locked up now with Christine O'Donnell backing him?

Watch the magic (not like a witch's magic mind you) here...
Whatever you think I refuse to believe this is a desperate attempt by O'Donnell to claw her way back into relevance! Such a nice girl.


In case anyone has forgotten Last spring, Busey endorsed Donald Trump for President, despite being fired on "Celebrity Apprentice." Busey is anything if not loyal. Now here's a Gif. you might enjoy...
