Okay. So maybe there is a god.
A Ugandan thief got a serious lesson in why you shouldn’t steal, particularly from people with deadly diseases. After breaking into a hospital isolation ward earlier this month and stealing a cell phone from an Ebola patient, the suspect came down with Ebola himself. The patient, who later died, reported the theft; as police were tracking the thief as he became symptomatic and came to the hospital for treatment. The 40-year-old ultimately confessed to stealing the phone, which is worth just $24, the Daily Monitor reports.– Newser
Dumbass. For $24 you could have bought Manhattan Island from the Indians! Instead you bought yourself a death sentence. The Indian word for you is “Schmuck.” You still hear it a lot in Manhattan.
As for us, the living, look on the bright side. The shmuck died (died), and as my wise if somewhat jaded email buddy Kevlar is fond of pointing out, we can use the parking space.
But look — what I REALLY wanted to write about is yet another Pennsyltucky politician saying something hideously stooped about sex and rape and pregnancy and everything else these ‘Pubs seem to know nothing about.
Pennsylvania Senate candidate Tom Smith (R) stirred up further controversy by comparing a pregnancy caused by rape to “having a baby out of wedlock.”
Smith said Monday at the Pennsylvania Press Club that….he agrees with Akin that abortion should be banned without any exceptions, including for rape and incest victims. Pressed by a reporter on how he would handle a daughter or granddaughter becoming pregnant as a result of rape, Smith said he had already “lived something similar to that” in his family.
“She chose life, and I commend her for that,” he said. “She knew my views. But, fortunately for me, I didn’t have to … she chose the way I thought. Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t rape.”
When a reporter asked Smith to clarify what kind of situation was similar to becoming pregnant from rape, the candidate responded, “Having a baby out of wedlock.”
He added, “Put yourself in a father’s position. Yes, it is similar.” — Huffington Post
Put yourself in the father’s position?
As for knocking her up because the rubber broke or the timing was wrong or they just got careless in paradise by the dashboard light, that’s so far fucking removed from pregnancy by rape it’s not even to be breathed — or in your case, mouth-breathed — in the same fucking sentence.
Where do the ‘Pubs come up with these knuckle-dragging asshats? These hinds make Bill Scranton and his family of drooling inbred mutants look classy. That ain’t easy. Still, it seems even in a backasswards coal-poisoned state like PA, there should be somebody willing to run for Senate who actually who graduated middle school.
Of course, if they did, the only things I could blog about would be petty thieves dying of Ebola virus. That shtick probably gets old fast. Like the thieves themselves.
