Dick Armey, Love Muffin

Love to the beautiful people coming here from The Washington Post.

OMG! Congressman, you are the biggest sexist prick I've ever seen on television! What a distinction!

"Debating" economic policy and stimulus spending with Joan Walsh, and you just whip it out, don'cha, big boy?

"I'm so glad that you could never be my wife because I surely wouldn't have to listen to that prattle from you every day."

WHAT a sweetheart! It's funny, Dick, how your wiki page already has that quote on it, but doesn't mention whether you've gotten laid since you wrote that highly successful Contract with America fifteen years ago.

Can Newt Gingrich still line you up with some female "stimulus"? Just asking. Bet you are too!

And who, who, who could have predicted that Chris Matthews would let you get away with that amazing prickitude?

Well, everybody, that's who.


  1. Instead of a photo a steaming pile of dogshit would've sufficed.

    I'd call him a dick if a dick wasn't part of a man.

    This guy makes me happy that someone discovered the Peter principle. I'm hoping that after this statement, this Dick goes limp and the rest of Congress grows a pair and censures him.

    Why did I think Dick Army was dead?

    Oh yeah, wishful thinking. My bad.

    Oh, and Dick? I wish for you everything you wish for me.



  4. What Tengrain said. I watched that bit of boorishness with my mouth hanging open in disbelief. Then I started screaming at my TV. What an ass. Why didn't he die? If he's married, I'll bet his wife's contemplated slitting his throat while he sleeps.

  5. i saw that last night and couldn't believe what i heard! i wish she had been allowed to really call him on that!

    my god!!!!

  6. The Actor and I were watching it live and when Armey said that, The Actor, who loves to needle me by saying misogynistic things, got really indignant that Matthews didn't make him apologize right then and there.

    "I get sent to my room for saying less offensive things!" The Actor yelled. "That guy should be banished from being a guest!"


  7. I saw it "live" too. And usually I file sexist comments under the "not worth it" category but this guy was being not only an A-hole but unprofessional. Yeah he should not be invited back, ever. Are you listening, MSNBC?

    Dick Armey is an awful and awfully stupid man... His wife strikes me as the Cindy McCain-type... stoned of her ass on prescription meds, and perpetually occupied with her bergdorf goodman acounty...

    spew.... spew... and more spew...

    keep the great blogs coming...

    one love,

  9. Isn't it great that we have a Dick like this to remind us that 'politics is silly' - Yes, indeed, it certainly has been a silly thirty years of gags, jokes and merriment.

    Remember that riotous comic genius Nixon and his laugh-a-minute Watergate festival of fun?

    Oh, and that old knee-slapper Reagan and his Iran-Contra slapstick, and the way his sidekick Bush 41 pardoned all our blues away, the old card?

    And how about his son Junior, and that wacky 'shock and awe' comedy masterstroke?

    Gosh, it's just been yocks aplenty, and all done to help us take our minds off that naughty old real life thing.

    Take a bow, funnymen.

  10. I never watch the wag anymore, but I chanced to see it go down, too; yet really— who can be shocked that a Rethug named "Dick Armey" talks like a member of an army of dicks?

    Americans may soon start to care that their elected representatives are rarely statesmen and women. Some more change needed: no more dicks on the teevee.

  11. For what it's worth, Bob Herbert of the NYFT was a guest in the next segment, and his first comment was about what a scummy thing Armey said. At the end of that segment, Matthews made a statement in agreement with Herbert's.

    It would have been nice if Matthews had jumped on Armey the moment he said what he did, but we all knew that wasn't going to happen.

  12. I have been disappointed in Tweety before, but last night was more than ever. He seems to really like all those old ignorant rethublicans Trent Lott, Tom Delay, Dick Armey. He has them on a lot and lets them just spew garbage. Joan did well though..she can usually hold her own with the best of them and last night was no exception. Bob Herbert was a true master, when he called Chris and Armey to task about it. I was impressed with him even more than normal.

  13. I caught this live as well, waiting on Olberman, and was absolutely jaw-droppingly amazed at the spew that came out of this guy. Joan presented her case quite well and his response was the typical male-chauvinist crap I've heard half my life from the rednecks of the olde south. That he would behave that way in front of a camera is phenomenal - what an ignorant prick. I'm guessing he sleeps with one eye open...

  14. Thanks, Michael,

    Yes, he's always been the head Dick of the Army of Dicks and just can't resist letting us know he's still around to be reckoned with.

    Can we laugh this vicious group out of power?

    If only.


  15. I just wonder who in the world would have low enough standards to be in a sexual relationship with Dick Armey.


I really look forward to hearing what you have to say. I do moderate comments, but non-spam comments will take less than 24 hours to appear... Thanks!
