Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

There’s nothing wrong with Planned Parenthood that a Christian conquistador couldn’t fix. Did you know Obama’s the son of Satan? We’re just getting started here. It’s “This Week In Crazy,” The National Memo’s weekly update on the loony, bigoted, and hateful behavior of the increasingly unhinged right wing. Starting with number five:

5. Rachel Campos-Duffy

2015-07-13-rachel-campos-duffy-cpac-2013-gage-skidmore-640Unless you’re strapped to a chair, lids splayed open, Clockwork Orange-style, and forced to watch Fox News day in and day out, you can be forgiven for missing Outnumbered, the network’s daily exercise is well-dressed, roundtable trolling.

The noontime conservative chatroom is a reliable fount of tone-deaf, ignorant remarks. For instance, you might remember Outnumbered host Rachel Campos-Duffy as the one-woman straw-man factory who blamed ISIS’ successful recruiting tactics on American schools’ emphasis on multiculturalism.

This Tuesday, she had some words of wisdom for the feminists out there: “Make the sandwich, darn it.” Otherwise, she cautions, your marriage will end in tears.

In a discussion spurred by a recent study suggesting that Republicans have happier marriages than Democrats, Campos-Duffy posited that GOP couples’ marital bliss was owed less to politics than to religion:

I know for myself — and I know in the Greek Orthodox Church it’s the same idea of sanctification, that marriage is a sacrament, it’s a holy thing. And my job being married is to get my husband and my kids to heaven with me. And I think that changes the whole perspective.

(Conservative Christian moralist Josh Duggar has certainly proved himself to be a deserving poster boy for the Republican version of sacred, happy, “one man/one woman” marriage.)

So when feminists and liberals get divorced, Duffy exclaims, it’s “because they won’t make that sandwich.”

    If stopping the slaughter in Iraq, preventing our economy from collapse, proposing and signing legislation to ensure that those who cannot afford high insurance premiums can get the medical care they need at affordable prices, protecting programs such as SS and MEDICARE, preventing another 9/11 and reducing the incidence of terrorist attacks against U.S. embassies from 11 to 1, proposing investment in infrastructure to modernize America and create jobs, and fighting for equality means Satanic tendencies for Republicans, I proudly acknowledge my support for the GOP’s idea of Lucifer.

    • dtgraham

      Gee, no wonder the guy is so unpopular with Republicans. Speaking of the anti-christ, I don’t know whether you’ve seen that photo of the Ford Explorer with the message scrawled on the back window, “OBAMA IS THE ANTCHRIST.” Like me, I’m sure you welcome our new insect overlord. All praise his exoskeleton.

      • TZToronto

        You have me truly laughing out loud with that comment! Thanks for a great start to my day!

        • dtgraham

          Not a problem TZ. Glad you got a chuckle. Every once in a while I say the right thing.

      • Dominick Vila

        After months of referring to ultra-conservatives as disciples of the anti-Christ, they are doing what every ignoramus, or person found guilty as charged does, they are applying the same labels to the accusers, ignoring the reason they are considered champions and supporters of the anti-Christ. Then again, I have the feeling that most of them consider hate, intolerance, lack of compassion, the death penalty, condemning a would-be mother to death to save a fetus, mass deportations, the idolatry of the Almighty Dollar, and warfare proof positive of Christian attributes.

        • Allan Richardson

          Correction: condemning a would-be mother to death EVEN WHEN THAT WOULD NOT SAVE THE FETUS. BOTH should die for lack of surgery which would, unavoidably, kill the fetus but save the mother; that is their “logic” based on theology.

          I did like the way Reisman and Surrusco, in this last section. used the Beast imagery from Revelation to describe:

          It’s as if every addled, extreme far-right position mated and birthed a conservative Chimera — a fire-breathing freak of nature that lives perennially 50 years in the past, with 10 arms carrying 20 guns, and five pairs of paranoid eyes, each looking over a separate shoulder for someone new to shoot.

          That was a hilarious description of the Republican Party of today!

      • idamag

        Here, it is a beat up old Ford pickup with a topper on it. The jerkadoodle puts ugly homemade signs all over the back of it. Then he had the audacity to ask if I had noticed them. I said, “You’re crazy, don’t talk to me.”

      • Looner

        Just saw a Ford F-350 today with “I wish Oswald was still alive” and under it “Obummer is the worst president ever”. My husband wanted to follow the guy and key his truck and piss in the gas tank so bad. I would have let him if I wasn’t afraid of getting caught.

  • FireBaron

    I was very disappointed this week. The only “usual suspect” in the whole crowd was Bryan Fischer. No Pat Robertson. No Bill O’Reilly. No Glush Benbaugh (yeah I welded the two of them together as they pretty much say and do the exact same things). A bunch of 2nd and 3rd tier haters is all you could come up with? So sad. Hopefully LoLGOP will come up with some winners later.

    • Dominick Vila

      Maybe they saved Slobodan Trump for another week. Let’s face it, we are all kind of saturated with examples of the Donald’s wisdom and civility. Oops, I forgot, that is called authenticity nowadays…

    • plc97477

      They do seem to be off their game don’t they.

  • dtgraham

    I don’t think Bryan Fischer needs to worry too much about those Planned Parenthood baby parts. Republicans have closed so many PP clinics that I hear the waiting list for an abortion in some of those red states is like 13 months now. Anyway, that’s not true that Planned Parenthood sells baby parts. To say that is really a slap in the face to decent, hard-working, baby part sellers everywhere.

    • Independent1

      On top of that, is the fact that researchers use fetal tissue less and less in their research these days, having switched instead to using stem cells for their research.

  • Eleanore Whitaker

    The Testosteronies in the GOP are pretty stupid. Women in red states will not just sit back, make babies on demand and then allow men to turn the clock back to sharecropping days. They’ll just come north for abortions, get them and then get jobs whee they are actually paid living wages. Why do some men in this country always think they have women nailed to the wall?

    • Independent1

      Let’s hope that most of these women (and even men) who now live in places where they no longer have safe control of their own personal body decisions and needs, can in fact, afford to go somewhere where they can safely get the medical procedure they need (and that’s not always an abortion, remember low income women and men depended on PP for many other medical needs); and that they don’t have to seek help on the black market, where many used to die in a failed abortion, or where they can’t get a medical screening or other help, which may have saved their life by catching an illness while it is still curable.

      Sadly, the misguided Conservatives mostly, of Red States, really are too clueless to understand the damage that they are doing, and that by shutting down PP and other safe abortion clinics; they’re actually increasing abortions and most likely women and even men dying because of failed abortions and the lack medical treatment they need and may not realize.

      • idamag

        If What did Eleanor call them) testeronies and the biddy bitches allow birth control of any kind, then how are they going to know which girls are virgins when they get married? The baby is proof of their transgressions.

    • stcroixcarp

      Testosteronies? May I quote you? Is Scottie Walker a testosteronie with cheese?

      • Daniel Jones

        *Extra* Cheese.

  • Eleanore Whitaker

    And let’s be honest. In human minds, the color “white” has always been used as a symbol of all things light, pure and holy. Black, on the other hand, is perceived as dark, evil and Satanic. Thus, dipshits of the Right refer to the President and anyone who disagrees with them as “anti-Christ” and “Satanic.”

    All of which is one huge, massive joke.

  • Grannysmovin

    Rachel Campos-Duffy: If my marriage is going to end in tears because I did not make a sandwich, than I have a very weak marriage and it should end.

    Keith Sullivan: Shock – surprise – Faux News has a misogynist lawyer as guests who blames the victim for her alleged rape, rather than go to trial and let the evidence speak for both of them. Female 15 year old and 19 year old male.

    Bryan Fischer: When you refer to human cruelty, barbarity, savagery and utter
    inhumanity you weren’t talking about the bible you were referring to today’s Republican policies and candidates .

    Tristan Emmanuel, George Zimmerman and Andy Hallinan: See photo below.

    • idamag

      Good one!

  • idamag

    Rachel Campos Duffy: I was luckier than you. My husband was man enough for a real woman who did not have to pander to his ego. He appreciated my intelligence and I did not have to pretend to be his fantasy.

    Keith Sullivan: You are a mind reader who can read women’s minds? I would like to caution the ladies. Don’t find yourself alone with this person.
    Bryan Fischer: Human toxic waste dump is too kind for you. You, and Sarah Palin should start a discussion group of two people.

    Tristan Emmanuel: Churches are complaining about their lack of full attendance. People, like you, are the reason. You teach by example and by your example I would not want to be a Christian.

    Murderer and company: You make me believe in abortion and your mothers should have had one.

  • P`tar

    That last idiot doesn’t even know what the Confederate Flag is. He kept calling the Southern Cross the flag; it isn’t and never was. Proud southerner indeed.

  • Looner

    Frankly I think you are making way more out of this than the video indicates and selectively offering quotes. Believe me, I hate Fox, but I didn’t think that discussion was anything weird or particularly far right wing. BTW, I have been happily married 38 years and both my husband and I are liberal atheists.

  • melpalmer

    yea no one else is, america is in bad shape and you’re lies continue.

    • Looner

      Is America really in as bad of shape as the GOP wants everyone to think? I mean seriously, we aren’t roaming around war torn blasted building, smelling the remains of corpses while looking for remnants of food and water. We aren’t searching frantically for someone To set our broken bones and give us antibiotics. We aren’t dashing about, avoiding gangs of Mexican rapists ( that last bit was a joke, ok?)
      While Democrats can sometimes be nonconfrontational to the point of being wimpy, I think Republicans are crazy fear-driven prima donnas. And you can quote me.

  • MistressTime

    I think that the GOP is spreading a powerful collective mental illness. It is triggered by fear, greed, and hate. They are not a political party anymore, they are a religious cult. Do we really want our country run by these people?

    • dpaano

      As I’ve said many times, the conservatives (GOP) use lies and scare tactics to control their base. They’re very good at it, albeit, not so credible for those of us who know better!

  • Looner

    I wish the guy had misspelled Satan … I remember one sign that said “Obama is Satin”. It cracked me up for weeks.
