Sorry to all of you who wanted Romney to win again, but Mr. Blunt and Cranky has got to give it up for Mandel’s mad lying skills this week.  Romney is a worthy contender who already has a few trophies of his own, but check out Politifact to see why Young Josh is the clear winner:

Mandel has only 15% of his statements that were rated as “true”, which means that 85% of what comes out of Joshie-Boy’s mouth is at least partly a lie. Nearly a quarter were rated as “pants on fire” lies. Hell, Nixon couldn’t even match those numbers.  

This guy Mandel is a living refutation of the statement that says “there are no ex-Marines”. Hate to say it, but that is just not the case. Even if the Marines don’t disown lying scumbags like this one, he is not deserving of the label “Marine”. Not any more: he has no integrity, no regard for the citizens he swore to serve, and absolutely no moral code at all.  Josh Mandel should have his rank, ribbons, and veteran’s status taken away for what he is doing today. He is a disgrace to his family, his state, his country and the Corps.

Usually we award a Crown O’ Polished Turds to the LSoSoTW: in this case, we’ll just hand him some unpolished horse-apples to eat. Given the stuff that comes OUT of his mouth, he should find the taste familiar.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky never listens to talk radio – the constant ads for herbal Viagra, tax cheating services, fake gems and other “products” are just too annoying, regardless of how amusing the chatterer may be. So he is relying on “news” reports for this week’s winner.

An opinionator named Barbara Espinosa (no idea which party or wing thereof she prefers) referred to President Obama as a “monkey”, and followed that ever-so-erudite bon mot with “I voted for the white guy”; after which she insisted that she was not a racist. (“With a last name of Espinosa I’m anything but racist”, was her alleged proof of non-bias.)

Some quick google-icious activity will  reveal  http://sonoranalliance.com/2012/06/11/neither-laurie-roberts-or-kathy-petsas-called-the-arizona-republican-party/comment-page-1/#comment-869072  wherein one can read her post-rant bilge.

The notion that being part of a “minority” group renders one free of racist tendencies is patently false: there are blacks who hate whites, jews who hate arabs, and so on.  Lots of people are proud racists, some are closet racists, some are in denial, some try not to be, and a very few are not racist at all. But one is not guaranteed to be free of racism merely by family heritage.

The biggest liars are those who lie to themselves. Ms. Espinosa has by word and deed proven herself to be a racist who lies to herself and others about it. A most worthy recipient of this week’s Crown O’ Polished Turds, the award given to the LSoSoTW.

Rep. Andy Gipson (R-Sphincterville) recently said, via Leviticus (20:13 for those of you aren’t hip to the Scrip) on his Facebook page, that gays should be killed. Here’s a snip of the page, for you Thomas-types out there:Image

Later, he went on Facebook again, refusing to apologize, saying “I do not, cannot, and will not apologize for the inspired truth of God’s Word. It is one thing that will never change.” So, you’re down with killing the gayward. We got it, Andy. You might be a hateful little bigot, but you are at least consistent. God’s word will never change, thus you’ll never be OK with gay folks unless they are dead.  Despicable, but reliable. We know where you stand. Even if it’s the lower level of a two-story outhouse, we know where you stand.

One wondered if he refused to wear nylon and wool at the same time (one shudders at the thought of a poly/cotton mix – oh, the shame, the shame of it); sold his daughters into slavery, or indeed  performed each and every one of the other actions required of we poor souls,  in that unchanging book that is Leviticus. If not, how could he live with himself?

And then, shock of all shocks, the next day, he said he didn’t really mean “killed”. Wait a minute, boyo, you mean God’s word DID change? News to me, I have to say.  Or did you mean that you just decided to stop following it? So much for “never”. 

Most of us think never means, well, never. Evidently, this jackanapes thinks never means “until I am in danger of actually having to work for a living”. Or “Until I realize what an ass I’ve made of myself”.

Nope, here’s the deal: he’s just another lying, two-faced politician who got caught shooting off his yap. His word isn’t worth the spit behind it, and his promises are worth their weight in gold.

If it weren’t the fact that he was using the Bible to make himself look bigger than the pathetic little twerp that he actually is, he might “never” have been noticed at all.
