Russell Pearce: Ten of the Dumbest Things He's Ever Said

pearceboil66.jpg
Anyone got a sock for this nudnik's mouth? Preferably used.

Word is, recalled, disgraced ex-state Senate President Russell Pearce wants back in the state Senate, and may run again in 2014, either in his current Legislative District 25, or in LD 16, which is just next door, further east, and in many ways, even nuttier.

Since Pearce has lived in the same house for the last 14 years, according to the county assessor's website, would he really move the whole kit and caboodle to LD 16?

Some Mesans speculate that Pearce might secure a rental, perhaps with the help of his money-bags bro Lester, and run from LD 16 as a "resident."

See, Pearce remains a hero to the rabid Republican base. So despite him losing twice by double-digits, first in the 2011 recall, then in the 2012 GOP primary, his possible candidacy cannot be dismissed as utterly futile. You just never know in Sand Land.

Fortunately, Pearce has a powerful foe, no matter where or for what he decides to run: himself.

Not only does the hateful nativist come with major bigot-baggage and the stigma of his historic recall loss, he has a predilection for opening his pie-hole and saying the dumbest stuff, as evidenced by his recent comment to Channel 3's Dennis Welch regarding the arrest of his political ally Chris Simcox on multiple counts of child molestation.

"Good people do stupid things sometimes," Pearce observed, thereby likening one of the most heinous crimes imaginable to intentionally running a red light, cheating on your wife or driving home after one too many brews.

That's our, Russ, and that's why he seriously risks becoming a three-time loser next year, should he opt to get in the game.

I hope he does run, because "three time loser" has a nice ring to it, and because Pearce never lets me down when it comes to material.

In fact, going through all of his verbal fumbles, racist statements, and outright lies over the years, leaves me with such an embarrassment of riches that I could do two or three top ten lists of his idiot pronouncements.

And if Pearce goes for the trifecta of defeat, by the end, I no doubt will have a boatload more Pearce-isms, ripe for exploitation.

Do Part two.  Or maybe take a different tack, do a top ten of Pearce quotes tied directly to Rush Limbaugh.

Russell Pearce is just as guilty by association with Chris Simcox,and vice versa , since both have abused people's civil rights, and although, Russell Pearce m ight not be guilty of child molestation, his treatment of hispanic families, by approving the raids by Arpaio to detain undocumented people, then separate entire families, and if this is not abuse, then I do not know what is, so I agree with this article's author, that if Pearce does run again for political position, then let the weight  of the vote, and the freedom of the Ballot prevent him from being successful, there should not be a place on any civil service position for anyone who shows hate towards any group or minorities.

Look for a resounding, posthumous endorsement from his best bud, J.T. Ready.

Why only ten? This list could have thousands of entries.

Pearce, a total waste of the air he breaths.

Worse than pond scum.

His face reflects how evil he is and how corrupted is his soul, to the point that it seems that he is growing horns. FUCKING POS.

Pearce is a monster.  We should never forget how close we were to passing much worse legislation than 1070 before he was recalled. We also forget how he led the fight against the IRC.

gotta give you credit Stephen, there is no way i could have ever narrowed it down to 10................with Pearce and Brewer, narrowing it down to the triple digits is hard enough, but the low doubles???? that had to be difficult

the "good people do stupid things sometimes" line while discussing child molestation charges almost sounds like he is laying the groundwork for a defense for something sordid and disgusting in his closet (like anything in his closet could be more disgusting than what we have already seen of him and his ehtics)

With DOMA being ruled Unconstitutional, Pearce can now marry Arpaio and they can share their 7 government pensions in wedded bliss....

No shit!! The only good thing about Pearce and Arpaio and Brewer remaining in office is the comedy value. Except, it's not really that funny. I hate Arizona because of these clowns, but I will not move away. This is my home now, and I will stay, forever, until my death, and vote against these assholes every chance I get. Too bad I can't vote against Pearce, I'm from Tempe. However, that silly old shit head will do himself in anyway...

The fact that he plans to run again and that there is a good chance that the freak show that is the Mesa voters would likely put him back on the ballot as the Republican nominee makes me sad.

It really is difficult to choose the most outrageous and disgusting comments made by this moron, but bad as his comment downplaying child molestation is, my choice for number 1 remains the Aurora, CO shooting comment. 

Not only was he completely insensitive to the pain of those who lived through that horrific event, and to the families of those who did not, it completely ignored the conditions of the theatre that night.  What especially made him deserving of a slap in the mouth for the comment, was the fact this idiot was shot with his own gun after being disarmed by some teenager.  Prepared? Brave? Oh yeah, Rusty, you putz!

Twice-disgraced, corrupt, narcissistic and mentally sick Pearce really has got to learn to stop running his mouth.

Hence the reason he got his ass handed to him not once but twice by true conservative Republicans. 

If he does run I would love to see Pearce get his ass handed to him for a third time. Hell, I'll bring cold beer and fresh popcorn just for the event.

He doesn't know when to stop. Most narcissist don't.
