Looks Like Two Loudmouths Just Talked Themselves Out of Their Jobs!

Why can't WE have politicians this principled?

Here's Daniel Hannan, a Tory and one of the UK's members of the European Parliament practically asking to get fired.


Nigel Farage and his UKIP party achieved their stated goal. 


As they were obviously something of a single issue party, the UKIP's  days are almost certainly numbered...unless they can somehow diversify their message as has been proposed in some quarters....


...but they don't actually dislike Poles and advances in VR technology will soon take care of the rest, so it looks like they're done.

Well done! 

Hannan and Farage have more extensive thoughts on why the EU was bad for the UK below the fold.

Well Then. This is Just...Awkward.

I saw no point in discussing the lying , candy ass, haplophobic Were-Chihuahua...



However, The Dustbury has discovered something priceless which I am going to shamelessly steal because this juxtaposition is just sublime...






"That's gonna leave a mark. "

Intermission

Well, the last post was a bummer, and I have an exam this week, so to keep something pleasant in the top post, here is a representation of a stonecrab by Jin Happiobi

The Deterioration of Discourse

After a long day of work and school I dealt with an epic traffic jam by ducking into a pleasant Ramen shop in Norfolk. 


The waitress, knows I'm a rightie and felt quite chuffed at the opportunity to needle me on the current Republican nominee, who, to avoid triggering any of our readers we will refer to as Whale Vomit for the remainder of this post. 

Anyway, she was quite happy that his campaign seemed to be imploding and noted that since Whale Vomit was the Republican nominee, we on the right had no moral authority whatsoever. 

Now...it had been a VERY long day, and I was really not in the mood to be thinking about Whale Vomit while attempting to appreciate my Miso Ramen, so I asked her what she thought of her party's nominee (who, in the interest of decency, we'll refer to as the She-Goat of The Forrest With A Thousand Foetid Young). The waitress got annoyed that I would even bring that up. Since nobody in the Democratic party actually likes that individual. 

I'll leave the obvious inconsistency to the reader.

The conversation turned to the violence at the Whale Vomit events and the fellow who had tried to shoot the republican nominee...After looking that news tidbit up the waitress was overcome with the blue county giggles and finally broke into laughter, suggesting that the would-be assassin ought to get a medal, or should have done better and if he'd died doing that he'd be a martyr. She also said that any violence at the Republican campaign events was entirely the fault of those rotten enough to show up to support the nominee. 

Absolutely no indication was given that she thought this was in any way unreasonable sentiment despite this being a representative republic as opposed to a recital of the Lord of the Flies.

My dismay at the results of the Republican primaries is Brobdingnagian, but I can say with considerable certainty that I hold anyone who is supportive of these thugs and would be assassins in even less esteem than I have for Whale Vomit.

This wasn't the faculty lounge or a meeting of the Weathermen, this was a Ramen shop and there was no hint of awareness that any line had been crossed.

Our civics has end stage cancer.

The Learning Never Ends

I confess I'd been under the impression that Papi was just a comic book character and wasn't real at all. 



Still looking for source.
Now I know better.
I won't be eating any crow over this though...out of respect.
