Remember: These people believe you stupid…

… and will tomorrow vote for a continuation of Obama’s policies. Worse, they will do so with absolute conviction in their own intellectual and social superiority.

Your job:

1) cancel out their votes with your own
2) leave small shiny objects outside in the street to distract them should they manage to find their way to a polling place tomorrow
3) stop them outside the voting booth, tell them you just voted for Obama, then demand they give you $50 — $45 for “social justice” and $5 for a Wendy’s double with cheese, fries, and a medium Frosty, which is your birthright
4) pray that once this election is over, they become so discouraged with politics that they go back to things they are more suited for — like Oprah book clubs, or beer pong.

  1. As stupid as most of them are, I almost find it more interesting that the one guy who actually understood still couldn’t bring himself to call Obama a Keynesian. It’s rather typical of the dishonesty strain that runs through leftists, meaning that if there’s ever the slightest hint that answering in the affirmative about something is set up to be perceived as a negative, they’ll just lie.

  2. So much for nishi’s new generation of intellectually superior posthumans…

  3. As I said on the thread Pablo debuted this on, I know it may come off as elitist, but I can’t believe that their vote counts as much as my highly considered one.

    These are the low information voters of which I often speak. Especially the lady in the red jackiet that gets militantly indignant.

    The kids I find a bit distressing, but hope they’ll improve with age, and, you know, actually having an income to get taxed…

    It’s amazing what earning a living will do to a fellow, ain’t it?

    One thing I haven’t seen mentioned in the cacophony of Stewart rally coverage is the false Sanity vs. Fear dichotomy. Those of us with abundant firing synapses will recognize that sanity is not the opposite of fear, rather hope is. Y’all remember HOPE, right? Oh, and Colbert is not funny, though I’m not the first to mention it.

  5. 1) cancel out their votes with your own

    If you’re not voting R for federal offices today (or tomorrow for you left coasters), you’re hurting America. I may find myself voting for a Dem for Governor (the realistic option being Linc Chaffee) but anyone who isn’t doing their part to see that the Washington Dems’s get an unmistakable message (“You’re fired.”) is derelict.

  6. I did a pot at Dan’s that has a link to Gutfeld’s take on it.

    http://tiny.cc/nvu5w

    To paraphrase, he says the Tea-Parties were about issues, this was all about celebrity. That, and the hypocrisy of having Cat Stevens-cum-Fatwa-lovin-muslim at an event supposedly bemoaning extremism and intolerance.

    It’s not a bad point.

  7. I did a pot at Dan’s

    See what happens when you voluntarily disable the judgment centers of your brain? SEE?

    Geez, they haven’t even legalized it and the pw commentariat is all about the pot, pot, pot.

    Man, I hate being right. :D

  8. In other news, I will gleefully accede to the legalization of every and all recreational drugs as long as people like the ones at the Stewart/Colbert rally are required to be high on them 24/7.

    Which, that should keep them away from voting booths, and if not, it’s 50/50 they’re so wasted they accidentally vote against Democrats.

  9. “So much for nishi’s new generation of intellectually superior posthumans…”

    - These bird brains are probably exactly the sort of ‘elite’ lifeforms that nishi’s bio labs would generate.

  10. - Bumbblefuck dialed back his “enemies” comment today, saying he should have called them “the opposition” instead.

    - Axelrod must have mentioned Barackies job approval was already close enough to Nixons without mimicking him too.

  11. one of my acquaintances mentioned he’d like to vote tomorrow, and I’m hoping he forgets. DON’T DO IT TWINKLEBUNNY!!!! but I don’t think he thinks he’s smarter than me, so there’s that.

  12. $160,000.
    4 years of study and tests.
    Employment prospects flushed away by 2 minutes on Youtube.
    Priceless.

  13. 5) Sit home and drink the sweet tasty tears of the MSNBC professional left as the campaign results whallop them in the face.

  14. Ba haa ahaa haaaaa …

    Oh, that was great.

    I’m wearing my Reagan shirt to vote. He’s not on the ballot so it should be ok.

  15. KingShamus, that’s already started; Olberdouche has decided that he’ll retire the “Worst Person In The World” shtick now that the usual targets are likely to be in a position to do unto him as he would to them.

  16. Priceless –

    I wonder if the indignant woman in red “YOU people ..!! huff! puff!” was ever clued in the word rather than her “interpretation” of it.

  17. That was awesome, but I’m sure those were actors. We knuckledragging redneck racist teabaggers are the stupid ones.

    It has to be true, I read it in the New York Times.

  18. Another “I Voted” sticker to add to my collection. If I can get my hands on Mrs. Darth’s I’ll have 16. I figure that’s enough to finish my “Chicago Democrat” costume for next year’s Halloween.

  19. Oh, and Colbert is not funny, though I’m not the first to mention it.

    I think between the two, Colbert is remarkably less-funny. His comedy isn’t half as intelligent as he thinks it is.

    Someone should tell him. Or we could just continue to laugh at him behind his back.

  20. I’m pretty sure the funniest guy on TV right now is Ron Jaworski.

  21. TV and funny does not compute for me right now.

    The funniest guy -from the shows I watch – is Charles Krauthammer.

    Five kids, one husband, and a dearth of interesting tv has severely limited my boob-tube watching. But that Zombie show – I finally have a something to watch. Yea me.

  22. “If people now want to take their ball and go home,” he declared, “that tells me folks weren’t serious in the first place.”

    Barack Hussein Obama

  23. I don’t want to take my ball and go home.

    I’ve got the dodge ball in my hand and I’m taking aim.

  24. This is awesome. It’s just perfect.

  25. One could also get people at a rally like that to sign a petition to “end women’s suffrage”. Because who is in favor of women suffering?

  26. I want one of those boob tube things Carin was talking about.

  27. OK, haven’t watched it, but…

    I HATE HATE HATE these “man on the street is an idiot” stunts. They act solely to reinforce the self-worth of the target audience, and are SO damned easy to fake it’s pathetic. I’ve actually run into people who think Leno’s “Jay Walking” is an accurate summation of the level of knowledge of the American public (hint: they only include the funny responses).

    (I remember Jeff doing something like this, but I also seem to recall he did it in two different outfits — playing more off the class markers of the clothing.)

  28. #28 – and Jeff’s “Citizen Journalist Report” where he dressed up in stereotypical Left (hippie – “I remember when a tattoo meant something!”) and stereotypical Right (somewhere Pat Buchannan smiled) and let everyone see the response of folks he spoke to in a Denver park. Rather well done, and I wish there was more of it.

  29. Can you get a Wendy’s double with cheese, fries, and a medium Frosty for just $5.00?

  30. that’s value

  31. I HATE HATE HATE these “man on the street is an idiot” stunts.

    Look, we all know that the worst idiots are going to be selected, but this is less a man on the street interview than it is a rather pointed, targeted attack on those who believe themselves politically active, but who know next to nothing about what it is they are ostensibly for. I mean, they were interviewed at a political rally (and yes, it was) — and a purported rally for “sanity.”

    So there’s that.

    Also, I would have done more Citizen Journalist Reports, but I lost my camera guy / editor when he moved to NY, and Pajamas, for whatever reason, decided to go with the comedy stylings of Steve Green instead.

    Because there are probably lots of new readers who weren’t around back then, here’s what Rob and LTC John are talking about.

    And looking at it again, all I can say is wow: I was about 40 lbs lighter then.

  32. I’m pretty sure the funniest guy on TV right now is Ron Jaworski.

    The Polish Rifle!

  33. I mean, he has released his birth certificate. All this jazz about him being Keynsian is just crazy talk.

  34. People are generally stupid in their twenties. After they start earning some money and start paying taxes…they get smarter.

  35. @34. Nice!

  36. I loved the “How can I be an Anti-Semite, I am circumcized?” comment. I wish you were still doing this stuff, it is funny.

    And there is sooo much potential material to work with right now.

  37. So much for nishi’s new generation of intellectually superior posthumans…

    Nishi and Cynn will need Sybians after tonight. Should we take up a collection?

  38. Obama’s not a Keyensian. He’s a communist; straight up Marxist, with the Lenin class-warfare stick down pat.

    At the ABC moderated debate primary debate with Hillz, Charlie Gibson asked him why he was going to raise capital gains tax rates, when it was a matter of fact that reducing them had always resulted in an increase in treasury revenue; why wouldn’t he reduce them at least back to the Clintonian levels?

    The Barack star’s answer? Because of the fairness; rich people don’t pay their fair share, widening income gaps, palaver as infinatum…

    Anyone who didn’t see what it was all about right there, based on that alone, was either wilfully blind, incredibly stupid, or, you know, smokin’ some really whack chronic, yo!

  39. the best funny stupid i ever seen was when a reporter was
    interviewing the mayor of newport r.i. during the america’s cup yacht race
    when america was poised to take the cup back, and the mayor was all excited
    ‘this will be great for newport to get the cup back and help the economy blah blah’
    so the reporter said to him ‘dennis connors from san diego- if we win the races will be moving there’
    and the mayor looked into the camera for like ten seconds and didn’t know what to say- it was on live t.v. and was hysterical
    deer in the headlights look

  40. oldie but goodie

    Q-what did you get on your i.q. test?

    A-drool

  41. #40 – would there be a clip o’ that on You Tube by chance?

    #38 – Dude, I was going to have lunch soon, thx.

  42. Oh, Jeff, I get the point, and there’s certainly reason and room to puncture the self-importance of the crowd at that rally. But it’s so cheap and easy and like I said, I’ve met people who think “Jay Walking” is an accurate representation of the American public. We shouldn’t fall for the same trick, no matter how amusing it is.

  43. , I’ve met people who think “Jay Walking” is an accurate representation of the American public. W

    DUDE. It sadly is. Or at least an accurate representation of certain segments.

    My husband has often reported back to me just horrible levels of incoherence regarding basic things among his employees. D-day? No idea. When did the Civil war occur? No idea. Stuff like that.

    I think legendary was when my husband was in line for jury duty before the 2004 elections and two young ladies were talking about how Bush was going to take away the “Black” vote.

  44. I’ve met people who think “Jay Walking” is an accurate representation of the American public

    Someone needs to pay a daily visit to Failbook.

    Just about half of Americans are below-average intelligence. Staggering, I know.

  45. Folks, I’m aware that people are ignorant.

    I’m also aware that most people will say “I dunno, when?”

  46. I’m just saying that if you go out and question the American public, you stand a really good chance of getting responses that are laughably stupid.

    So, in that sense, Jay Walking episodes do represent the American public.

  47. #38 – Thanks, Momma always told me it was important to learn something new every day.

  48. “I’m just saying that if you go out and question the American public, you stand a really good chance of getting responses that are laughably stupid.”

    You don’t even have to go out and question them.
    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/russell-simmons/dont-vote-and-well-get-th_b_777133.html

    I would say these people are losing their minds, but that is probably giving them too much credit.

  49. I’m just saying that if you go out and question the American public, you stand a really good chance of getting responses that are laughably stupid.

    You go out into any public, anywhere, and you stand a really good chance of getting responses that are laughably stupid.

  50. Spend any time with people one or two standard deviations below your native intelligence, and you’ll begin to get a glimmer of what it’s like to be one of our Moral Superiors. To the Solons in Washington, we’re the dim ones.

    Must be hell, being smarter than everyone else. We really should stop being so hard on the poor dears.

  51. Must be hell, being smarter than everyone else

    It’s difficult, I admit, but one can live with it.

  52. #42-LTC JOHN- i don’t know if it’s on you-tube or how to find it
    but it did really happen and was funny. my computer skills leave much
    to be desired. i type with one finger-like a chicken eating. but i
    bookmarked protein wisdom- and always come back-for good or bad

  53. I looked for it Mr. buttons no luck

  54. Trolling the shallow end of the gene pool, eh? It does kinda make you wonder how humans survived back when there were saber-toothed tigers & such, don’t it?
