RFK jr: Inhofe is a “Call Girl” for Big Oil

posted at 1:20 pm on March 7, 2012 by Jazz Shaw

Before we begin, I’d like to pass around these complimentary throw pillows to put on your desks. I only do this because I’d hate to see you all injure your faces while smashing your head repeatedly into your keyboard.

Fresh on the heels of various stories about inappropriate name calling, another heart warming story crops up in the news. And if this is any sort of indication as to what we can expect from Robert F. Kennedy Jr. in the months and years to come, this guy is going to be a national treasure for the GOP.

Leave it to Robert F. Kennedy Jr. to one-up Rush Limbaugh in the name-calling department.

“Speaking of prostitutes, big oil’s top call girl Sen Inhofe wants to kill fuel economy backed by automakers, small biz, enviros, & consumers,” the New York-based environmentalist wrote Tuesday on Twitter.

Kennedy was targeting Inhofe for a letter the Oklahoma Republican sent last week to EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson that questions the Obama administration’s fuel economy and air pollution policies.

“It’s hard to believe that Robert Kennedy Jr. would choose to use such language — especially this week,” Dempsey said. “I bet he now regrets it.”

Kennedy told POLITICO that he stands by his tweet.

So, let’s see if we can’t update the media professional best practices and standards handbook, shall we? “Slut” is a no go, but “call girl” is OK. Check. “Prostitute” is verboten, but … what was that word Bill Maher used for Sarah Palin again? Oh, that’s right. Salem won’t let me say those words here. But they seem to be A-OK also.

That Bobby.. he’s such a card!

As has been noted many times, if anyone would know about call girls and prostitutes, it’s a Kennedy.

the Kennedy’s are well known for having class, smarts and attentive lobbyist with money, booze and spare girl friends

The Kenndy gene has a half-life of about 20 years. Each succeeding generation is about half the quality of the last.

I’ve noticed that each generation, in fact successive child of a Kennedy, gets dumber and more funny looking. Strange biology going on there.

James, Barack Obama on line 2.

Hey, here’s a shout-out to this same tool who finally convinced me to drop my membership in the Natural Resources Defence Council. What was it again? Oh yeah, he said that anyone who didn’t agree with the AGW hypothesis is a traitor. I submit that that’s even worse that being called a call girl.

That’s okay. JFK is a pimp for the envirowacko movement, who promote policies only a Kennedy heir can afford.

Junior, taking a break from the girls, booze and drugs? The ultimate distillation of bad seed, where does he find the standing to criticize anyone. Should have locked up Rose for starting the blight.

Odd he doesn’t mention that, isn’t it. Talk about being a “call girl.” Every time that ad comes on to buy Venezuelan oil, I get sick and turn off the TV.

It’s gonna be a close race to see who we can get rid of first, the Last Bush or this c**t. Yeah, I said it. Almost.

OkieDoc on March 7, 2012 at 6:05 PM

I thought all the Kennedy’s were in jail or just….gone.

RFK, Jr. is a wh*re for Chavez.

It is okay, according to the left. Remember, they’ve moved on from holding their own accountable by way of their own loosely-defined “public figure” standard, which only applies to conservatives, apparently, because only liberals can be private citizens.

Hey people, it’s okay. Jr. is using words which denote the concept of “slut” as a metaphor. Metaphor insults against Republicans and conservatives are A-O.K. Rush’s comments were aimed at, well, a real (promiscuous woman). See the difference? And besides, RFK is a democrat, a somebody. Or the son of somebody anyway. N’cest pas?

RFK gave a crap-filled (read anti-Bush) interview to “Mother Earth News” magazine demonstrating his enviro-wacko views a few years back. He seemed to be a bit demented; perhaps he could only be good at giving voice lessons to John F. Kerry as to how to sound more like his dead uncle, JFK.
