Patty Murray: Democratic Dummy

Pages: 1 2

She wasn’t a parent upset that her child’s school was dropping an art history class. She was a deadbeat public employee who didn’t want her job cut. No one was taking her course, but she thought taxpayers should be required to pay her salary anyway.

Fighting to keep your own cushy job isn’t a point of principle; it’s evidence of a narcissistic personality disorder.

But you have to do a lot of research to find out that the class being eliminated was Murray’s own. This deliberate policy on the part of the press to hide Murray’s utterly self-serving motive for saving the class proves they know this is a problem for her.

The media’s admiration for Murray’s tenacious political start is like applauding the pluck of a stalker: “That guy sure has moxie and determination!” You’re not supposed to be canonized for fighting to keep your own job.

Murray is the equivalent of a Wall Street fat-cat saying, “I’m going to fight for my $50 million severance package because it’s the right thing to do!”

This remarkably unimpressive woman has tried to turn being a flat-footed dork into an advantage by selling herself as a tribune of regular folks. Yes, like most regular folk, she listed no religious affiliation whatsoever in the first few editions of the Congressional Almanac. (She probably couldn’t remember she was supposed to say “Catholic.”)

Soon after being elected to the Senate in 1992, Murray fought for a federal government jobs program by saying, “The highest-paying job I had before coming to Washington, D.C., paid $23,000 a year. … I know what it’s like to tell my kids they can’t buy everything they want.”

Is that what Murray thinks a senator should be doing? Ensuring that parents can tell their children they can buy everything they want?

True, Murray is a mom. You could also describe Hitler as a “war veteran and painter,” but I think the more salient fact is that he was a German dictator.

Similarly, Murray’s relevant characteristic is that she is a lifelong public-sector union zealot.

Again, Murray’s class was on “parenting” — the very definition of a pointless government program. Imagine going back in a time machine and trying to explain to someone from 1950 why the government was paying for classes on “parenting.” How about classes on “waking up” or “getting dressed”?

Democrats have completely infantilized the populace in order to create jobs for useless social workers like Murray — and then people wonder why states are going bankrupt under crushing debt burdens.

But I guess we have to fund these idiotic programs in order not to be outshone by Osama’s “Partnership With Working Mothers Initiative” in Peshawar.

    Uh. No. That should read Patty Murray (D-WA) not VA. Yes she's stupid, but so is the fact checker on this article. If you want to talk about a stupid person, at least try and not look stupid yourself.

    • Wideband

      Uh. Where? Nowhere in the article is she referred to as (D-VA). Yes she's stupid, but you appear crazy for referencing something that isn't there. If you want to talk about a stupid person, at least try and not look stupid yourself.

    • proxywar

      Seriously what the hell are you talking about?

      • 911Infidel

        LOL. The original title of the article had the words "Patty Murray (D-Va)" in it. Apparently the editors got my message.

      • 911Infidel

        Go to Google and type in "Patty Murray (D-Va): The stupidest person in America frontpage" and you'll get a link to this article. That was the original title of this piece
        that I was commenting on.

      I think they call those typos. Happens sometimes when people write for a living. A smart person might have realized that before posting a petty attack.

      • 911Infidel

        Petty attack? Hardly. The editors paid attention and did the right thing by changing the title of the piece. Better the criticism come from an ally than from an enemy.

        • Lustmorde

          I just get weary of name calling (or implying it) unjustifiably. And I apologize because I realized I just did the same thing to you.

          Anyway, I was just saying maybe calling the fact-checker stupid was a bit over the top, especially when in reference to an ally.

          • 911Infidel

            As the oldsaying goes: As iron sharpens iron, faithful are the wounds of a friend.

    I hope Ms. Coulter takes on the alleged 'non-profit' organizations that survive on public dollars feigning good works while it appears the most impressive work they do is skim off high salaries for themselves…

  • Yezhov

    Besides having some entertainment value, the benighted Murray has some miniscule utility in that she raises the egos of all the other senators a notch. Also remember her hubby's union links!

  • BS77

    Californians, vote for Carly Fiorina to replace Barbara Boxer, the Brooklyn ultra liberal.
    FIORINA for Senate!!!

    • QSuzy

      Not so fast. I suggest you read what conservative Orange County, CA rabbis have to say about Fiorina, not that they like Boxer either but they say Fiorina is more dangerous because she still thinks Islam is a wonderful religion, loves the mullahs of Iran so much that when she was CEO of HP, she was doing lots of business deals with them even after the State Dept gave her warnings……google it.

      • Plav

        What about Joe Biden. I think he's the dumbest Senator at least in my lifetime.

  • crypticguise

    Patty Murray is incredibly stupid. But the Democrats have a rogue's gallery of stupidity of their members. Perhaps the voters in Washington have decided they don't want to be represented by a clown. Then again, maybe not.

  • Reason_For_Life

    Patty Murray is quite possibly the dumbest person to ever sit in the Senate (which is saying a lot). However, what does that tell you about her opponent who began his campaign with a two point advantage over her and after hundreds of milquetoast ads has managed to climb all the way up to a seven point disadvantage?

    Dino Rossi is the quintessential Republican, a boring drone with nothing to say worth hearing. I'm sure that every night Patty Murray clasps her hands together (if she can master the difficult task of alternating her fingers to make them fit into the spaces) and thanks God for Dino Rossi.

    For those of you in states with an actual choice like Alaska, Delaware and Kentucky – Don't blow your chance. If you go down we all go down.

    Here in the pacific northwest all we can do is hope that other people have more sense than we do.

  • jemc50

    It is hard to believe that the state that sent Henry Jackson and Warren Magnuson to DC, now is represented by Patty Murray.

  • bornagainpagan

    I always thought Ron Wyden of Oregon was the dumbest senator until Patty Murray dethroned him. Now everyone is forgetting about that other mensa candidate, Al Franken of Minnesota. He and Murray are right up there primarily to make all the other Democrats look like geniuses. If all the cemetaries dwellers in Seattle stay put, then Rossi will have a chance to rid Washington of this DNC puppet and leave that dangerous task to Franken.

  • Nick Shaw

    Gosh darn, can I say I love Ann without anyone thinking I'm stalking? You have to admit she does have a great sense of humour. She can put down someone without resorting to ahh, let's say..Grayson's methods. If any of it is untrue, Patty, you have the floor….chirp, chirp.

  • USMCSniper

    Patty Murray is so stupid she doesn't even suspect that she is stupid. A walking brick with arms and legs.

  • blx racket review

    Undeniably consider that that you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be at the web the simplest thing to understand of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people consider concerns that they plainly do not realize about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and outlined out the whole thing with no need side effect , other folks could take a signal. Will probably be again to get more. Thank you
