Pretend Bad Asses



I know this is a few days old and I don't know if this scum bag, Troy Gentry, is even a Republican but his lyrics seem to follow the "I'm an ignorant redneck and don't you tell me different" theme so popular these days.

Anyway, I know he something in common with Dick Cheney. They are both pretend bad asses.
Read this:

CHICAGO (Reuters) - Troy Lee Gentry, half of the country music duo Montgomery Gentry, has been charged with killing a tame bear and then making it look as if it was a hunting trophy, authorities said on Wednesday. (snip)

After using a bow and arrow to kill the animal inside its pen, Gentry and the owner of the preserve tagged the bear and registered it with the state as if it had been killed in the wild. A videotape was edited to make it appear that Gentry had hunted down the bear.


These sick freaks that get off on killing penned animals are just one type of pretend bad ass. The other type is the rich guys like George Allen who try to pass themselves off as redneck bad asses. Recently Sen. George Allen singled out the only non-white at a campaign event and said:

"Lets give a welcome to Macaca, here. Welcome to America and the real world of Virginia," - Crooks and Liars

This was not an isolated racists outburst for Allen who has pretended to be a confederate bad ass since his school days.

"The May 8, 2006[10] and the May 15, 2006[11] issues of The New Republic reported extensively on Allen's long association with the Confederate flag. The magazine reported that "[a]ccording to his colleagues, classmates, and published reports, Allen has either displayed the [Confederate] flag--on himself, his car, inside his home--or expressed his enthusiastic approval of the emblem from approximately 1967 to 2000." Allen wore a Confederate flag pin for his high school senior class photo. In high school, college, and law school, Allen adorned his vehicle with a Confederate flag. In college he displayed a Confederate flag in his room. He displayed a Confederate flag in his family's living room until 1992. In 1993, Allen's first statewide TV campaign ad for governor included a Confederate flag." - wikipedia



...and when I say PRETENDED, I mean pretended because Allen (unlike other confederate flag enthusiasts) traces no family connection to Dixie and never lived in the South until he transferred to the University of Virginia from UCLA as a sophomore in college.

So, Allen put the arrow to something black in a pen but not a bear....was it a trophy anyway?
humor me here...
 
You forgot to mention the pretend bad ass that got us into a war in order to prove that he is a bigger bad ass than his daddy.
 
I guess Newt would go into that category of pretend bad ass. He is itching to nuke Iran to show that he is the biggest pretend bad ass of them all.
 
You are a dumb ass - does that qualify?
 
It seems I struck a nerve. Let me hear a "HELL YEAH!" from all the pretend bad asses put there.
 
How about you hear a "Huh?" from all of the people who wonder why you'd try to pin the actions of a sad little man on a political party or ideology.

According to opensecrets.org, no one by the name of Troy Gentry, Troy Lee Gentry, or Lee Gentry has made any political donations to either party in the last three election cycles. I guess that, absent evidence that hunting tame bears in part of the neocon strategy for world domination, you'd just spread some ridiculous innuendo and see if it hurt Mike Castle in some way.
 
Now that you mention it, Castle is a pretend bad ass. He could not even get his stem cell bill passed and signed into law.

As for the first guy...

I don't know if this scum bag, Troy Gentry, is even a Republican...
