Tommy Thompson and his list of excuses for being stupid

Remember during the Republicans debate when Tommy Thompson said he thought it would be okay to fire an employee just because the employee was gay? Even if you weren’t watching the debate you probably heard the rest of us gasping at that remark.

Later when asked about his answer he said he couldn’t hear the question. Then he said his hearing aid battery had died. Then even later he said he wasn’t paying attention because he had to go to the bathroom so bad.

Now here’s his latest list of reasons. “"Nobody knows that," Thompson said. "I've been very sick. I was very sick the day of the debate. I had all of the problems with the flu and bronchitis that you have, including running to the bathroom. I was just hanging on. I could not wait until the debate got off so I could go to the bathroom."
(Quote source)

So of all the questions asked of him that night, this one answer was the only one that was effected by his condition? Gimme a break. Probably time for Tommy to take his hat out of the ring and hang it up.

These people can't accept responsibility for ANYTHING! Simply amazing beyond belief.

I'm sure the next excuse will be that he dropped his hearing aid in the toilet before the debate.

These Repugs have the lying capacity of a 4 year old child - all of them. What is sad is that there are "adults" out there who believe them. It's not cute to lie and wee wee your pants when you're over 50.

I think it's hilarious. That's the excuse that's supposed to work the most often when you're caught speeding: I really hafta go, and I don't think I was make it home in time.

Tommy Thompson has made a few gaffes lately, letting his prejudices and stereotyped thinking hang out for all to see. He's got a ton of excuses, but even when I am feeling crappy, I never think employers should be able to fire people because they are gay. I'd say Tommy Thompson is sick, but not the way he thinks he is!

We can't be having GAY people in the workplace! That would be so... GAY!! Imagine all that GAITY, nothing would ever get done...

I really want to slap that Tommy guy upside the head with a stupid stick. Gaily.

didn't he also blame his comments about Jews being good at making money on some ridiculous malady? a cold, or something?

I am seeing a pattern in his campaign, and it's one that will keep it from getting off the ground... so, keep it up, Tommy Boy!

PS: can't wait for the next one... "I hate blacks... sorry, hemorrhoids made me say that..."

He'll have to get in line, to claim an award for stupid excuses. A very long line.

Shame on all of you. Poor Tommy is just displaying all the great qualities we have come to expect from a Preznit and Dear Leader.

Let's vote for the guy who cannot hear shit, and cannot stand still without having to run off and take a shit, and then put him in charge of the nukes.

Oh, I missed that one. So let me understand: Tommy Thompson thinks it's okay for an employer to fire an employee just because that employee is gay? And this is because he dropped his hearing aid in the toilet while he had to drop a load? Huh?

What about when the employer is gay?
