The Weekly Ass Clown – Texas GOP Official – Peter Morrison

ass clown /as kloun/ n: an abject failure who is simultaneously arrogant, condescending and obnoxious. Synonym: douchebag


In the first installment of The Weekly Ass Clown we are introduced to Texas GOP official, Peter Morrison. Mr. Morrison called for his state to separate from the United States and the “maggots” who reelected President Barack Obama in a Tea Party newsletter he sent out this week.

Citing a clear solution to the “problem” of Obama’s re-election, The Hardin County Treasurer wrote,

“We must contest every single inch of ground and delay the baby-murdering, tax-raising socialists at every opportunity. But in due time, the maggots will have eaten every morsel of flesh off of the rotting corpse of the Republic, and therein lies our opportunity.

Texas was once its own country, and many Texans already think in nationalist terms about their state. We need to do everything possible to encourage a long-term shift in thinking on this issue. Why should Vermont and Texas live under the same government? Let each go her own way in peace, sign a free trade agreement among the states and we can avoid this gut-wrenching spectacle every four years,”

Morrison followed up with this jewel, “many members of minority groups are simply racist against the party most white people happen to vote for.” He singled out Asian Americans, who he said should be Republican “as they earn more money and pay more in taxes than white Americans.”

In a separate and even less comforting topic for the parents of Texas schoolchildren, in addition to Mr. Morrison monitoring the books of Hardin County, he’s also been appointed to help screen Texas public school textbooks. Creationism anyone?

Given the multitude of Ass Clowns this week – from Karl Rove blowing $400 million on elections he lost to Donald Trump’s Ass Clownish threat of revolution – Peter Morrison certainly is the worst of the worst. Congratulations, Mr. Morrison at being the very first Weekly Ass Clown! Fantastic job!
