30 Short of a Quorum

From the Daily Herald, Central Utah's Newspaper:

Utah County Republicans ended their convention on Saturday by debating Satan's influence on illegal immigrants.

Don Larsen, chairman of legislative District 65 for the Utah County Republican Party, had submitted a resolution warning that Satan's minions want to eliminate national borders and do away with sovereignty.

In a speech at the convention, Larsen told those gathered that illegal immigrants "hate American people" and "are determined to destroy this country, and there is nothing they won't do."

Illegal aliens are in control of the media, and working in tandem with Democrats, are trying to "destroy Christian America" and replace it with "a godless new world order -- and that is not extremism, that is fact," Larsen said.

At the end of his speech, Larsen began to cry, saying illegal immigrants were trying to bring about the destruction of the U.S. "by self invasion."

Whatever you think about illegal immigrants, 20 million of 'em ain't bringin' down this country nearly as fast as Bush and the Repuglicants. I think the Repugs are jealous of the competition!

Larsen was allowed to finish the debate with a one-minute speech.

"If the Democrats take over the country, we will be dead, and we will have abortion and partial-birth abortion and the Republican Party will go into extinction," he said. "Nancy Pelosi and the ACLU would oppose this (resolution)."

Gee, he says 'extinct Repuglicants' like it's a bad thing!

When Wright said "the economic benefit (of illegal immigration) outweighs the downside" he was jeered. He warned that the Republican Party of California had "killed themselves" by taking a hostile stance against illegal aliens.

Well, they're not really dead, just sorta in a coma, but 'killing themselves' would be the right thing to do.

A member of the audience moved that the convention suspend its rules to allow the "objectionable part" of Larsen's resolution to be stricken, retaining only the final paragraphs of the resolution, which condemn illegal immigration. Eventually party officials counted all delegates in attendance, only to discover that, with 299, they were about 30 short of a quorum and could take no action.

I think '30 short of a quorum' is my new phrase for 'mentally defective', sorta like 'a taco short of a combination plate'. I guess I have to thank Repugs for something after all.

One of 'em got off a funny, though:

Congressman Chris Cannon and Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff both received a standing ovation from some members of the audience. Cannon said Democrats have just as many corrupt party members as the Republicans but the media does not report Democratic ethics violations.

Why should 'the media' bother? The Repugs do a hundred times the ethics violations of the Dems, and they're so stupid and blatant about it that they're gettin' easier for reporters to catch. 'Catch', shit! Pretty hard for reporters to ignore something that slaps 'em in the face!

As one of our commenters once said, there are two kinds of Repuglicants, the 'con men' and the 'marks'. Guess which these Utah Repugs are.

Please go read the rest of this article if you have a few minutes, if only to marvel at the copywriter who could put this stuff down on paper with a straight face.
