Farewell, Dirtbags!

After every election, Bill Maher typically does a segment where he presents a tongue-in-cheek “in memoriam” video as a tribute to all those most outlandish personalities who lost in their elections. Thus, to quote the words of Richard Nixon, we won’t have them to kick around anymore.


Rep. Steve Stockman: “If babies had guns, they wouldn’t be aborted.”

Smitherman Gun

Railroad Commissioner Barry Smitherman, tweeted picture of a noose


Debra Medina: “I think some very good questions have been raised in that regard [to 9/11 truthers]. There’s some very good arguments.”

David Watts: “There has already been UN influence in how we manage and preserve the Alamo.”

Lloyd Wayne Oliver: “Family violence is so, so overrated.”


Former State Rep. Robert Talton: “None of the books of the Bible do away with capital punishment”

Judge William Adams…no explanation needed

…and last, but certainly not least….

Harris County GOP Chairman Jared Woodfill:
“Our founding fathers would be furious to find out that the Constitution was being interpreted to allow sodomites to marry” (quoting Hotze)

There were definitely a few others who I disliked strongly that did not win, but I reserve the title of “dirtbag” for only the worst of the worst. I don’t legitimately think that Jerry Patterson & Todd Staples are bad people, but I do think that the aforementioned are. Make of it what you will.

Farewell, dirtbags…
