Oh Greta, Ride Fast Like a Deputy Sheriff and Catch Up Here With the Rest of Us

January 30, 2014 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

Greta Van Susteren pitched herself the silliest damn walleyed snotnosed hissy fit I have ever seen.

She took to her blog and blasted the Harris County Democratic Party for their I Stand With Wendy yard signs.   Most you remember the June 25th filibuster in the Texas Senate when Texas women vowed to “stand with Wendy” while she filibustered.  The rules say that Wendy had to stand the entire time she filibustered.

And, as you remember, it was a big thing.  Texans swarmed the capitol and shut down the voting process.

Screen Shot 2014-01-30 at 11.41.44 AMThe next day “I Stand With Wendy” tee shirts, buttons, mugs, bumper stickers, and yard signs hit the marketplace.  I myself purchased several, including Christmas gifts.  It was a big thing before Greg Abbott or Wendy Davis even announced they were running for  Governor.

But, Greta sees it differently.

It does not matter to me that this is not the official campaign of Wendy Davis. This is her Party — the Democratic Party of Harris County. The Party and the candidate are one. The word “stand” is covertly referencing that her opponent – Attorney General Abbot – is in wheel chair. Don’t tell me this is an accident and not meant to be a cruel reference to her opponent. I don’t buy it.

Oh yeah, Greta, Democrats are just cruel like that.  We hate disabled people and make fun of them all the time.  That’s why we oppose the Affordable Care Act that covers disabled people – many for the first time.  No, wait, that’s not us who opposes it – it’s Greg Abbott, you damn fool.

Harris County Democrats responded with a cute little graphic for Greta.

Damn fools on FOX.

Thanks to the Harris County Democratic Party for the heads up.

    They grasp at the smallest of straws and you can bet Loopy Louie will have to go for another visit to Fox’s illustrious talking heads so they can compare their stupid notes. They gather together like annoying little sand gnats!!

  2. I think Greta was just desperate to redeem herself with the right wing after she foolishly criticized one of them for his nasty comments about Wendy Davis. (See link)

    Sad to be such a puppet.


  3. One more “making something out of nothing” ploy by one more desperate Repug.

  4. Polite Kool Marxist says:

    Sorry Greta, I stand with Wendy. You on the other hand work for Roger Aisles. Get off your knees, get your self-respect back and find a real job.

  5. daChipster says:

    Greta’s a lawyer, a good pal of the snowgrifter, Sarah Palin, a Scientologist and a mainstay of FOX Noise.

    The Loserville Grand Slam.

    Engineers using space age materials and supercomputer design software can’t even envision the cables and buttresses needed to suspend that much disbelief yet, somehow, Greta has managed to bear that load. That heavy, heavy load.

    That pantload.

  6. daChipster FTW!

  7. shortpeople says:

    I suggest we contribute to a fund to send Greta on a long weekend with Eric Erickson.

  8. @daChipster: definitely FTW
    But I so hoped you’d work in “she’s a sailor; in New York. We get this gal laid, we won’t have any more trouble!”

  9. Joe's Confused....still says:

    Google Greta’s height. Ya really couldn’t tell if she was standing (or not standing) with anybody.

    I’m just sayin

  10. The GOP is doing its best to try to convince voters that Wendy Davis is hostile to people with disabilities http://www.slate.com/blogs/weigel/2014/01/23/the_campaign_to_brand_wendy_davis_as_a_hater_of_disabled_people.html As Dave Weigel notes, this campaign is really rather stupid

    Wasn’t long ago when wingnuts accused two Democrat war veterans in wheelchairs of being cut and run dems from the Iraq War. Max Cleland lost his Georgia Senate seat to a non veteran rethug. Cleland lost both legs and one arm in Vietnam. Tammy Duckworth lost both legs piloting a helicopter in Iraq and her rethug opponent hadn’t served,but he won. Just consider the source and don’t worry about it.

  12. e platypus onion says:

    There are some wheelchair truthers that don’t believe Greg A-But needs a wheelchair. Wingnuts are making hay out of this.

  13. UmptyDump says:

    What’s Greta gonna do come Sunday when all those Southern Baptists in church start singing “Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus”?

  14. The only person referencing the fact that Abbot uses a wheelchair is Greta.

  15. I never could stand Greta Van Susteren. Couldn’t stand her before Wendy’s filibuster, couldn’t stand her during, still can’t stand her after the filibuster.

    If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.

  16. daChipster says:

    Micr: she couldn’t get laid in a men’s prison wearing a money bikini and packing 10 cartons of Luckies. But if you’re volunteering….

    Plus – NObody steps on a church in MY town!

  17. daChipster
    Pass. I wouldn’t do that, not even with another guy’s equipment.

  18. Corinne Sabo says:

    Greta is a fool.

  19. Polite Kool Marxist says:

    OUCH! Between the thought of entertaining Greta or being the idiot who shot himself in the pee-nuts, ain’t flipping that gohmert loaded coin.

    Let’s leave that lose-lose for Loopy Louie.

    What a desperate, pitiful salvo from Faux News. This race is only going to get nastier. And the sad part is that all those FauxNewsIdiots will keep repeating and rebabbling this drivel, and people will believe it. Good, honest, God-fearing church ladies and old white geezer-dudes who are pitifully well-intentioned, but obviously dumb as rocks, or have some serious dementia happening. I can just hear prayer circles all over the Panhandle jabbering at this moment…. poor things. And they think they are being “enlightened and pure-of-heart” to wave their banners to support the disabled. UGH UGH UGH Only thing that makes this worth the mindbending is to think of how those same church ladies and geezers would feel about Roger Ailes and his minions sitting in their corporate offices guzzling Scotch and laughing their patooties off about how they have pulled the wool over the eyes of their faithful, ignorant followers again.

    Right now, Cong Randy Neugebauer is running this pitiful tv ad on local stations about “fighting Obama, and being enraged because liberals from the West Coast have bombed his Facebook page with negative comments.” Well, Randy… I am one of those liberals who regularly bomb your Facebook page about your voting record… and guess what? I’m a constituent.

    No rest for the weary.

  22. Um. I read the Texas Values tweet but i’m confused. Who was wearing the brief? Greg Abbott or our lesbian Mayor?

  23. Cause they’ve got nuthin…

  24. Idiot. She’s an idiot. The word “stand” is used in many contexts that have nothing to do with being on one’s feet. How about “stand-in,” “stand-out,” “stand a chance,” “standing army,” and on and on and on. Well, I believe Greg “stands for” all the same crap as his repug friends, and I can’t “stand” him, although I can actually stand if I choose to, but prefer to “stand” with Wendy. “Stand by” for more Fox idiocy.

  25. My dad (RIP) was in a wheelchair before the Americans with Disabilities Act. It was hell. Were he alive, he’d be standing with Wendy.

    Greta, that’s such a reach that you probably sprained something.

  26. Sheathe your claws Greta and just deal with the fact that smart, competent women are standing with, walking with, calling for, and whatever other means they can think of doing to support, a smart, competent woman who supports them back. Oh, and yes, there are plenty of men standing with Wendy also too. They have mothers and sisters and wives and daughters they care about.

    Greta, any time you cross the threshold of your office you should offer a breath of thanks for all the smart, competent women who were jailed for your right to vote, for your right to have a job, and who are STILL fighting for you to have equal pay, you ungrateful wretch.

  27. shortpeople says:

    Scientology and intellectual honesty are seldom companions. And I will make fun of her “religion”, because if she believes that pulp science fiction she’s a doofus and a dupe of a supreme con man (almost as good as Ayn Rand), otherwise, It’s no wonder she feels threatened by people of honesty and integrity. It also explains how she can work for Faux and still claim to be a journalist.

  28. Greta if this is the best you can do, then you are well past your time in that position. Hasta la bye-bye!
