“Whoops! Brain fart! For a second there I forgot I was a Marxist“:

Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren is copping out of her claim that Wall Street executives are supporting her because she’ll “save capitalism,” saying she made a “silly” gaffe.

“I passed along a comment that was over the top, and it was silly for me to do so,” she told the Herald at a Somerville campaign stop.

I just thought she said it because it was “opposite day” in Massachusetts or something.

It’s okay, Fauxcahontas — nobody believed it anyway.

Update: Now this is a little more Warren-worthy — why can’t America be more like China?

Ed Morrissey has more on that lunacy.

    She wants to cure the disease by killing the patient.

    …saying she made a “silly” gaffe…..

    Everything this woman says is just plain silly and gafftastic….At this rate she could replace Biden on the ticket and no one would notice the difference.

    Now this is a little more Warren-worthy — why can’t America be more like China?

    More Progressive Straw (TM) CHINA can adjudicate 9% of GDP toward 'infrastructure' because they are actually GROWING their GDP! We're an established, industrialized nation. Why should we have to spend the same like one bringing "product to market" on dirt roads in ox-driven carts?

    We wouldn't have "crumbling infrastructure" if 60 cents on every tax dollar since WWII weren't skimmed off for PEU bennies dipw@d!

    Here in WA ST the state constitution mandates that all gas tax $'s go to DOT projects. The libs figured out a way to skim off the top to add money to the general fund. They add sales tax to all the construction material used in DOT projects.

    On top of that, the priority of DOT projects has nothing to do with congestion relief or road improvements. It has more to do with getting you out of your car. HOV lanes, bike lanes, mass transit, etc.

    Back about 6 years (same year as Hurricane Katrina) ago they pushed through a 9.5 gas tax increase to go towards DOT projects such as replacing the Alaskan Way Viaduct. They got it passed the voters by saying the viaduct could crumble at any moment. Of course the Viaduct replacement has just begun (big dig style) and what was the first project of the 9.5 cent gast tax? Bike lanes over I-90…

    Think about that a minute …… Has Fauxcahontas EVER been seen with a squirt gun ? Drinkin` Near-beer at a Beer Summit ?

    Has Sheriff Joe EVER been seen in silver dollar-sized ear rings ?

    I think we`d know ! ;-)

    They add sales tax to all the construction material used in DOT projects.

    Problem solved..!

    I'm sure the same thing is going on here in Monkey See Oregon. In fact 'I' can't tell where a PENNY of our gas tax has gone to roads? Every downturn in the national economy is another window of opportunity for state capitol progressives to acclimate drivers to ever diminishing road 'standards'. And to automatically -divert- said funds into projects they deem more worthy.

    I've advocated they shut down several as either non-essential, local use only or unsafe at any speed. Not until we have farmers and bus. owners HOWLING b/c that road they didn't build in front of their place of biz is shut DOWN for failure to comply to min. standards will things change.

    She gives Pelosi a run for her money for Queen Dingbat honors.

  9. jeffythequick on August 1st, 2012 3:13 pm

    Unsafe at any speed? You mean like that S-Curve south of Eugene on I-5? or the incredibly fun to say "Turwilliger Curves?"

  10. jeffythequick on August 1st, 2012 3:21 pm

    You'd deny that people riding their unicycles to work from Snoqualmie to downtown Seattle isn't an appropriate use of tax dollars? Besides, they need to put more bike carpool lanes (for tandem bikes) so the workers could GET to the Alaska Way viaduct.

    You conservatives are so short sighted…
    /sarc

    Man, checking my brain brian out at the beginning of a rebuttal is fun!

  11. Marshall_Will on August 1st, 2012 3:25 pm

    Believe it or not ODOT is STILL working those curves south of Eugene.

    No I'm referring more to the many State and County feeder roads that have NO shoulders, NO guardrails, NO ( or nearly gone ) lane markings and entire sections either washed out to gravel and potholes that bend wheels and keep tow trucks busy.

    You lived here, you know the deal. But you're right, we even have sections of I-5 that are sketchy at best. The purpose is twofold. You baby your car ( not all of us drive SUV's you know? ) and then when you try to make up time there's a state trooper WAITING for you!

    In Prog world everything works hand in glove doesn't it?

    The good news is that OPB is safely funded.

  13. Truesoldier__ on August 1st, 2012 4:10 pm

    Prime example of that stupidity here in WA ST. At Fort Lewis (I cant get used to calling it JBLM) they used to have a side gate that was open to Roy (small little town) that a massive amount of traffic used (it cut 20 minutes off my commute time). They recently shut the gate due to the feeder road from the gate to SR 507 was never meant for that much traffic.

    Instead of just fixing the road up so it could handle the traffic they paid to put in a new traffic light on SR 507. Now traffic backs up due to the trurn lane spilling into the thru lane due to traffic volume and it is still summer (only going to get worse after Labor Day weekend).

    It must be a liberal prerequisite.

  15. Marshall_Will on August 1st, 2012 4:18 pm

    "riding their unicycles to work"

    Are… they cruising clown nose 'on' or clown nose OFF? If they're sporting g-strings and have clothespins clamped on their nipples I say GO for it!

    Yeah ( how about 'government' for the rest of us? )

  16. Marshall_Will on August 1st, 2012 4:22 pm

    Thanks for the heads up. I've been asked to transfer up there and… haven't really given a response just yet. Actually up towards Kitsap but a mess is a mess. No, I won't call it Joint Base Moon Unit Zappa either.

    It's just so distressing the entire West Coast takes this "If you're going to commute, you're on your OWN !" mentality? Isn't that one of THE most basic functions of 'government'?

  17. SignPainterGuy on August 1st, 2012 4:24 pm

    Definitely a resumé enhancement !

  18. Truesoldier__ on August 1st, 2012 6:06 pm

    At this rate I just wish they would use the money we "invest" in roads to, you know, actually build roads.

    On another note. Other than the traffic (Seattle has been named in the top 5 worst commutes in the nation) the area is nice and the more to the east and the south east of the base you get the more Conservative it gets.

    I love wokring on the base as I get to chat with a lot of the military guys/gals. The older ones tell me the real deal of what they say and the younger ones I get to try to help undue the liberal public school brain washing that they have.

    Depends on what time a day it is…..

  20. Truesoldier__ on August 1st, 2012 6:08 pm

    If you were to get Pelosi, Fauxcahontas and Debbie whatshername-schultz in a room together you could have the new three stooges. Not quite a funny, but still really entertaining.

  21. backwoodsconsr on August 1st, 2012 6:50 pm

    It would mean a considerable reduction in the IQs of the famous trio.

    When I was a kid, I lived in Eatonville, and one of our scout leaders was a soldier there, and we got to go camping there, shoot M-16's, and fun stuff.

    Weird how they always seem to make things worse the more they profess to make things better. It almost seems like it's maniacally planned.

  23. Marshall_Will on August 1st, 2012 7:18 pm

    Oh dude that would SO eclipse Moe, Larry & Curly!

    Fauxcahontas: Whadda' ya dooooin'!?

    DWS: I'm sawing a saw in half with a SAW 'see'?

    Pelnazi: Com'ere. The BOTH of you! Boink-boink!

    Ah…yah… yah…

  24. Marshall_Will on August 1st, 2012 7:25 pm

    (Seattle has been named in the top 5 worst commutes in the nation)

    And… it makes no sense. Oregon and WA typically represent about ( 1% ) of the U.S Population respectively. That we're perpetually tied in knots says a lot about having Prog's for city managers.

    Only newbie Utopian arrivals try to make public transpo work. After anyone's been here over a year they quickly ABANDON that misbegotten notion. Once they get a GF no one wants her riding the bus to nowhere w/ pervs, thiefs, dealers etc.

    Not sure what the atomic process is called when molecules come together, they give off, or exchange electrons, neutrons or protons. I think in this case, we`d have a mass exodus of all else and leave only nucleii of morons !

  26. jeffythequick on August 2nd, 2012 12:32 pm

    The men here are as crazy as those 800 miles to the south…

    or were you talking about the women?

  27. ChapBix on August 3rd, 2012 10:04 pm

    Simple remedy – she just needs to marry Plugs. What a gaffetastic couple they would make.

  28. ChapBix on August 3rd, 2012 10:05 pm

    Or Williams.

    It speaks volumes about Brown that he can't trounce this fraud. The polls still show that the race is very close.

    After his stunning Tea Party orchestrated victory in 2010, he was once asked "Are you a Tea Party Republican?". He replied "I am a Scott Brown Republican". Okay! Good luck with that!

    About all of those former Ted The Swimmer staff members, are they helping? Or are they reluctant to attack one of their own? Or are they just blind to Warren's absurdity?

    We are wasting FAR too much time on this guy. As an incumbent running against a completely outed fool, he should be running away with the race. Why isn't he?
