We have a winner!

The winner of today's Tooly McToolerson Award for Maximum Toolishness is Indiana State Rep. Verne Smith (D-Gary).

Verne, those of us who are about to rock salute you! We couldn't pay to make those on your side of the debate look like a pack of thimble-headed gherkins half as effectively as you just did for free!

"thimble-headed gherkin"?

Been watching "The Great Race" lately?

Smith said he once became so angry at a man who was picking on him at a dance that if he had a gun, he might have used it.

"It shows you that when you have a gun, how many times you don't think," Smith said.


There he goes projecting again. Just because you "don't think" on a regular basis Mr. Smith, does not mean that I, or others like me, are anything like you.

You know what the first thing I thought of when I saw that picture?

I got my son that same cap gun a few Christmases ago.

I wonder what would happen if *I* took one into the state house?

Only one statement comes to mind.

Ladies, I apologize in advance if this term is offensive...


What a frickin' douchebag.

If Rep. Verne Smith's anger management skills are so poor he cannot trust himself with a gun ... then why in the hell should we trust him with something far more dangerous, like an elected post?

What I find interesting is how often I have heard the same or similar statement from liberals I know or have met over the years. I don't recall ever hearing its like from non-liberal types.
Most curious.
I wonder if it might be something to do with the way liberals brains are wired? They tend to have such unrealistic views of how the world works, and an equally odd view of firearms, and self-defense. Might just be all connected. Sort of a package deal to some extent. One rarely sees someone switch sides. And, typically, they exhibit characteristics of the other side well before deciding they are on the wrong side.

wv: mince...ooh! pie! yes, please.

One more reason for me to not like Gary, IN. The others mostly having to do with shooing the souls of the damned away from my car as I drove through it, or the rumbles and grumbles of great Orc engines muttering underground.

Just one of those people that shouldn't hav a gun... Hoplophobes say that a lot.. They seem to think everyone has that same thought.

I've never been to Gary, and know little about the place. Is that really the best they can do for a Representative?

Gary is like the South Side of Chicago, only without the charm . . .

Au contraire, Ms. T.; He's a pickle alright, but like most vegetables, he most certainly isn't free.

While Paul Helmke is the dumbest man to ever enter Indiana politics, Smith is a close second.

Look at the photo, just look. Imagine, just imagine a white representative doing this.

You're not helping your side, Vern.
