And The Civility Slide Continues…

Don’t tell me this is funny. It’s not funny, as Jack Nicholson says in “Few Good Men.” It’s tragic.

West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice (R) , in his annual State of the State address, felt it necessary to further degrade public respect in elected leaders by telling Bette Midler to kiss his dog’s ass—OK, he said “hiney.” What a genteel gesture.

At the tail of an hour-long address, Justice lifted his bulldog and displayed “Babydog’s” anus et al. to say to the critics of Sen. Joe Manshin who denigrated his state while savaging him for not following in lockstep to the Lockstep Party,

They never believed in West Virginia that we could do it. They told every bad joke in the world about us. And so from that standpoint, Babydog tells Bette Midler and all those out there, kiss her hiney.

What a clod. There’s nothing like giving support to the dolts like Midler who resort to stereotypes and ad hominem attacks to make their ignorant political arguments by behaving just as crudely as the bigots expect.

This doesn’t help.

Let’s have a pool on who will be the first elected official to tell critics, “Suck my dick!”

My money’s on a female.

  1. A little late on the pool idea. President Clinton may not have been the first elected official, but I’m not aware of any prior utterances made by others.

  2. You once said that you thought Trump might be the one to go full asshole first. It looks like this guy has beaten him to it.

  3. It is not funny.

    The photo is funny.

    Poor dog. It does not deserve such treatment, but probably immediately forgave its owner.

    But, as stunts go, it is kind of pathetic. Good stunts need to appear extemporaneous. Pelosi tried to pull that off with the tearing up if Trump’s State of the Union Address. Once it was clear that it was staged, her stunt was mere theatrics.

    However, that was a stunt that she could gave gotten away with.

    Here, it was clear that his speech was staged. Why would ha have brought a dog in except as a prop.


    Funny picture though.

    Poor dog.
