Republicans are such jokey jokesters. We just laugh and laugh at their jokes all day long. Case in point: A Republican State Representative made a joke about Wendy Davis going to hell. Are you LOLing yet, because Greg Abbott and a roomful of supporters did.

[su_center_ad]As a leftist Christian, I think it’s so funny that some people are going to hell, because Jesus thinks it’s hilarious. “Ha ha, you’re going to burn forever!”

On Saturday, Abbott and GOP attorney general nominee Ken Paxton were campaigning at a Tex-Mex restaurant in Frisco.

The Dallas News reports, “Abbott was introduced by Frisco state Rep. Pat Fallon, who opened with a joke in which Wendy Davis visits a grade school and sees a boy reading a book about whales.”

Here’s the joke:

The first grader asks Davis how many people could fit in the stomach of the whale. Davis says none, the whale’s throat is too small. But the boy asks about Jonah, wasn’t he swallowed by a whale?

When Davis repeats that nobody could be swallowed by a whale, the boy declares that when he gets to heaven, he’ll ask Jonah personally.

Fallon then quoted Davis, “Well, what if Jonah went to hell?” drawing groans from the supporters at the rally.

“Then the little boy said, ‘Well, Ms. Davis, you can ask him,’” Fallon quipped.

Abbott, who was next to Fallon, laughed and the supporters clapped and cheered.

Abbott campaign spokeswoman Amelia Chasse distanced the GOP nominee from the joke. “While clearly intended to be humorous, the comment was inappropriate and should not have been made,” she said.

But Abbott himself seemed tickled by the joke.


“Sources say” that next week, those stumping for Abbott (maybe Ted Nugent, who knows) will pull the wings off of flies for a real laugh. The stop after that will be the Abbott campaign going to an animal kill shelter and laughing about the dogs on death row.

Wendy Davis made what she saw as a compassionate choice by getting an abortion. A spokesperson for Texas Right to Life called “the value of life precious” but nevertheless also stated, “Our heart goes out for the decision she had to make.”

That decision is not anyone else’s business and it’s certainly not a laughing matter. [su_csky_ad]

    Goppers pulling out the ‘ol “God’s on our side” card. No surprise.

    Those winger Texas Christians can never sink low enough. I can only that “Hell hath no fury like blue voters in Texas”.

    That darn Greg Abbott and his supposed disability!

    • StoneyCurtisll October 26th, 2014 at 7:12 pm

      Off topic..

        Not really. One side attacks the other. It’s sort of like talking about the fight between Joe Louis and Joe Frazier, and everyone saying, “Did you see Louis’s killer uppercut?” and when someone says, “How about Frazier’s haymaker,” everyone says, “That’s off topic.”

        • StoneyCurtisll October 27th, 2014 at 7:19 pm

          I see your point but…
          Louis and Frazier never fought..:)

            I can’t even have a Fantasy Boxing match in an allegory. Sheesh, you guys are tough!

      I like this website..

      And I dont want to get myself in any trouble here..

      So I wonder if…

      If I respond to Red Eye Robot with an..(bad stoney says’) “STFUAH”..

      Or should I do what I already know is the right thing to do..(ignore) stupid people..

  4. StoneyCurtisll October 26th, 2014 at 7:11 pm

    And these effing dummies believe they are going to….
    What do they call it?…
    Yeah right..

  5. tiredoftea October 26th, 2014 at 7:12 pm

    If they took Mom’s advice, we would never hear from them.

    It’s the Good Ol’ Fratboy network in action folks.
    “H’yuk h’yuk! She’s a Gurl! H’yuk h’yuk! Let’s make fun of the Gurl, h’yuk h’yuk!”

    That joke was really lame. Doesn’t matter what names you put in there. They were clapping and cheering on the hate, nothing more. If Abbott wins the election, there will only be one good thing about it. He will be the last republican Governor elected in Texas for a long time. I am really hoping Perry is the last but corruption in government seems to be more important in Texas.

    • Guy Lauten October 26th, 2014 at 7:35 pm

      The “Railroad Commission” holds all the real power and has been in Big Oil’s pocket since they found the stuff in East Texas.

      • mea_mark October 26th, 2014 at 7:42 pm

        Not as much as they used to. One thing Perry did accomplish was to put more power in the governorship position. Right now though one really big thing a democratic governor like Davis could do is expand medicaid in Texas. That would be huge.

        • M D Reese October 26th, 2014 at 7:57 pm

          I’m hoping that the “unity” governor ticket wins in Alaska, too. Palin and then Parnell have been a disaster. That cranky old coot Rep. Don Young has been stepping in poo and setting it on fire too–let’s hope that Forrest Dunbar can pull it off and retire him. Young is an embarrassment. It would be so nice if Alaska wasn’t in the running for stupidest redneck state next to Teaxas.

    What to know who is going to be in my imaginary heaven?
    Cause it is imaginary after all…
    (quick list)

    My dad who died when I was 11 years old..
    Gramma and my two great aunts who raised me, my mom (still alive 81 years old),..
    My cousin Denny who drowned off the dock in lake Jacomo when he was 6 years old 1965, (I was there and helpless cause i was only 5 years old) Still tears me up almost 50 years later……

    Girl friend Joyce who helped me through my first divorce, (Rip Joyce still love you)..

    These right wingers have their own imaginary heaven..
    it isn’t one I want to belong in..

    • Carla Akins October 27th, 2014 at 5:27 am

      Mine: Grandma (of course) my high school boyfriend that died in a boating accident at 17, Ryan White, Mahalia Jackson, Mark Twain, and don’t shoot me – Tony SNow.

    • StoneyCurtisll October 26th, 2014 at 9:48 pm

      3 deep breaths…
      1, Breath…out
      2, breath…out
      3, breath…out..
      I dont know about you.. But I fell a lot better…

      Haters are gonna hate no matter what we think or say..

      A wise person once told me..(someone I sold weed to years ago)..

      “if you allow a person to piss you off, they win”…
      “if you ignore them, they wonder why you are not submitting to their will”..(which is what they seek)..
      This “wise man” still owes me ten bucks…:)

    I’m no believer but there are some bits of wisdom in their favorite book

    Proverbs 16:18

    Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.

    • red-diaper-baby 1942 October 27th, 2014 at 1:47 am

      The Greeks knew that too. They called it hubris. And we know what that leads to.

      • R.J. Carter October 27th, 2014 at 8:20 am

        A second term, frequently.

  12. cecilia October 26th, 2014 at 10:41 pm

    hoping enough people get out to vote Wendy in

  13. rg9rts October 27th, 2014 at 5:00 am

    She can’t…it will be full of baggers and the gopee for their crimes against humanity…

  14. EnuffBull October 27th, 2014 at 8:45 am

    Oh, you jokey GOPers!

    Now back to the issues on why voters should choose Abbot over Davis?
    (Crickets chirping. Eventually one supporter yells “Bengazi!”)
