Proper Protocol for a Former U.S. Senator? Carnahan: “Here Is a Man Who Has Fallen out of the Stupid Tree and Hit Every Branch on the Way Down”

July 22nd, 2009 by MarkTwain · No Comments

We’ve got another example for you today of the further decline of FiredUp Missouri since Mr. Temple packed his bags and headed for The Beltway. Here’s what we wrote last month when the “kidz” over at FUM labeled our veterans as socialists:

“There used to be a time when FiredUp Missouri was run by partisan professionals, but the kidz they have over there now are just plain embarrassing. And playtime is over.”

What is truly embarrassing is the latest commentary supposedly written by former Senator Jean Carnahan. Here’s a few bombs she lobs at her former Senate colleague, South Carolina Republican Senator Jim Dement:

“Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) is not the quickest bunny in the forest”

“Here is a man who has fallen out of the stupid tree and hit every branch on the way down.”

Is this the proper protocol for a former United States Senator (appointed) to use while publicly disagreeing with a former colleague? Is Carnahan subtly saying that Sen. Demint is “stupid” because he’s a southerner and talks with a drawl? And what is behind the title “All in the Family?” Is this a jab at the stereotype that Southerners practice inbreeding?

We all know those stereotypes – and liberals ARE notorious for looking down their noses at those they deem not of their caliber. Sen. Carnahan (who seems like a very nice woman) should be ashamed that such partisan and personal attacks are being posted in her name. Need to put a leash on the kidz Roy!

    She’s easily confused you know. Just look at her thankfully brief time in Washington.

    She was actually referring to her son Russ to whom the “Here is a man who has fallen out of the stupid tree and hit every branch on the way down.” statement most definitely applies.
