Russell Pearce Talks "Crushed Scrotum" at Nationally Televised Event

Pearce telling his "scrotum" joke

During a Lincoln Day Luncheon today in Phoenix televised live by C-Span and featuring a keynote address by GOP presidential hopeful Rick Santorum, recalled state Senator Russell Pearce regaled an audience of fellow Republicans with a weird tale about some fella's "crushed scrotum."

Talking Points Memo posted Pearce's classy move on YouTube, which you can watch above. 

Spoiler alert: the punchline to this meandering joke has to do with a man's wife mixing up the words "scrotum" and "sternum," and discussing how her husband's "scrotum" was now "wired together" and in working order.

"`It looks like his scrotum is going to be OK, and he'll be able to use it again,'" said Pearce at one point, quoting this fictional lady.

Pearce scored a few laughs from the crowd -- emphasis on "few." With all eyes on Arizona for the Republican presidential debate tomorrow in Mesa, the world now has further evidence that the GOP is represented locally by yokels.

VERY URGENT NEWS ALERT: All of us readers of the Newtimes rag need to join Gustavo Arellano and Steve Gallardo in denouncing their stay in the US. Come with us, my brown skinned occupiers of "El Norte" and return to Mexico and take over the country from the pale skin descendants of the colonial masters.  Let the brown people take over their contry of Mexico. Are you with us my fellow occupiers?? That is real news that the Newtimes needs to cover!

And here we go again wih yet another black eye for Arizona...

Pearce and the MCSO shurf are embarrassments to this state. Pearce had to make a joke about a scrotum (something Pearce sorely lacks) while the MCSO shurf drank way too much and mixed his meds with the booze...Hence the reason the Old Fool can't recall anything.

From now on, when I see Pearce, my first thought will be "that reminds me of a crushed scrotum."

Talking about sex, is that his attempt at showing us what he has since Babeu has made the leap from the closet?

It's kinda hard to be funny when you're angry at the world, huh, Rusty?

What an embarrassment in so many ways.

He isn't even capable of making a good scrotum joke. Now that's sad.

How are yours hanging Russell?  Had anyone check lately for you?  Babeu? Larry Craig? So many more possibilities come to mind.

The Republican party is in crisis. Romney is as fake as they come. Santorum...which church am I assigned to? Newty...u gotta be kidding. Ron Paul is the only one who talks sense. peace

I saw "Crushed Scrotum" in the headline and of course thought of OSB; maybe he left his nut sack laying on the floor and Lisa stepped on in when they were reviewing a press release?  Then, realizing it was in relation to Russell Pearce, I thought that it must of been the  feeling Russell got when he got smashed in the recall election.  

It is just Russell telling a joke that half the R's around here would find offensive and/or stupid.

Pretty classy Russell.  If you really want a Crushed Scrotum, lay it out and I will sell tickets to people that want to step on it.

"Ron Paul is the only one who talks sense."

You're joking right?  The entire GOP lineup is nothing more than a 3 ring circus clown show, the Republican party should call Disney and see if they can trade their lineup of candidates for a full set of set Disney characters, maybe then they might "talk sense" and stand a chance.
