  1. Ricky's last child was stillborn. That one got out lucky. And the sad reality is there's gotta be at least one of his 7 other children who is more than a little envious of their stillborn-sibling.

  2. Chances are ALL of his children will be ashamed to be associated with him in not too short a time.

    The bigots of today are preserved on YouTube for generations to come. The hate you speak to day will never, ever go away.

  3. Exactly, Randy - you know, the great-grandchildren of white supremacist anti-integrationists can thank their lucky STARS that there wasn't as much easy documentation and video footage of that awfulness back in the day. They can bury the shameful histories of those who carried their family name and pretend if never happened.

    Santorum. Palin. Bachmann. Kern. Foxx. Huckabee. and on, and on, and on.

    Congrats, folks. You've ruined your family name for generations and made is synonymous with bigotry and hatred. And I wholly encourage future generations of young people to go for a big taco bell dinner, find your graves, drop trou, and in lieu of flowers leave a steaming pile of what you deserve.

  4. Dear Rick,

    Thank you for coming. Please avoid truck stops while you're here. Also, Jeff Gannon has been asking for you. Please return his calls.

  5. Por Ricky can't even get people to fork over fifty bucks to hear him. He's on the $36 ticket circuit now. What's next: will rant for food?

  6. I bet there were plenty of empty seats available, you would have been hard pressed to give tickets away for that thing up in this part of the country.
