Epic Fail

Moment of Derp

You can't make this shit up.

The leader of the House Republican Job Creators Caucus, Rep. Reid Ribble (R-WI), told reporters over the weekend that the best place for him to help with job creation is at a $1,000/host skeet-shooting fundraiser 45 minutes away from his own jobs fair.

Ribble said his attendance at the jobs fair his office set up and advertised was “a bit of a distraction” to people trying to find work.

Gee. Thanks Reid Ribble, leader of the Job Creators Caucus, for not showing up to your own job fair and thus not distracting any of the little people who may be under the mistaken belief that it's a serious event. I hear skeet-shooting is great this time of year.

    To be fair, the meat on October skeet is mighty tasty.

    Is there a lot of lead in the drinking water in Wisconsin?

    What the fuck kind of name is Reid Ribble? Who does that to their kid?

    How about this? How about next November 2012, we vote so that Ribble will HAVE to attend the next job fair.

    But it won’t be because “his office” set it up. ;-)

    Wasn’t Reid Ribble one of those little pig-faced bastards that tried to keep Chewie from getting all of Threepio’s pieces back in Empire?

    Now, did he at least ask anybody at the Job Fair if they wanted any part time work over at the trap and skeet club loading clay targets in the throwing machines? Also, they must need score keepers, janitors, and other unskilled laborers.

    Obviously he didn’t want to be seen with the unemployed low life riff raff at the job fair so he snuck out to mix with the aristocrats at the trap and skeet club.
