Jones mocks Moore for *prancing around on a stage in a cowboy suit*

http://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/363373-jones-mocks-roy-moore-for-prancing-around-on-a-stage-in-a-cowboy-suit

Democratic Alabama Senate candidate Doug Jones on Monday took a swipe at his GOP opponent, mocking Roy Moore for pulling out a gun while on stage at a September rally.

“I’m a supporter of the Second Amendment. When you see me with a gun, folks, I’ll be climbing in and out of a deer stand or a turkey blind, not prancing around on a stage in a cowboy suit,” Jones said during a speech.

1. "I can tell by your outfit

that you are a cowboy.
You can tell by my outfit that I'm a cowboy too.
You can tell by our outfits that we are both cowboys,
If you get an outfit you can be a cowboy too."

Sung to the tune of The Streets of Laredo by none other than the Smothers Brothers

'Pilot says, "we will be landing 15 minutes early."
Well, that worries me. Hell, we can land an hour early if he puts it down in the grand canyon.'


Or something like this.....

'My only fear of flying is coming to a sudden stop......like against a mountain.'

Close, anyway....

But then I also have a few hundred classical and jazz LPs.. maybe 30 operas...

29. They were, until the tight-ass censors at CBS pulled their show.

Despite its high ratings, and replaced it with Glen Campbell. A 50-year-old example of right-wing jerks silencing criticism of "the establishment."

32. I remember being furious

about that. They became heroes to me. So much of what I believe today came out of those times and thinking about it all. I was a kid, Jr. High, I think when that happened. Those were horrible years and it really made me think. Coming from a family that did not even watch the news much, it might be on but they paid no attention to it and never spoke about it, I am surprised how much I learned just from these kinds of episodes.

35. I was about 18 (couldn't vote until 21 back then) and really ticked off.

You're right, starting in 1968, the "fun" 1960's turned very dark: the Tet Offensive in Vietnam, MLK, Jr. and RFK murdered, the My Lai massacre (although not made known until 1969), the Democratic Convention debacle, and the election of Richard Nixon -- to name a few of the major events of a very turbulent year. The Smothers Brothers show got pulled in early 1969.

I was a freshman/sophomore at San Fernando Valley State College (now Cal State University, Northridge), which had some really crazy goings-on which only added to the surrealism of the times. Part of the Administration Building was burned down, there was a police riot on campus in January, 1969 that nearly swallowed me up (if I had fallen, I'd have been trampled badly).

There's a short six-minute video (produced in 1985, the quality is rather poor) that covers the Valley State campus unrest at the time, here:

8. as the punk band the Vandals sang

want to be a Cowboy
I'm going to be a Cowboy
I'm born to be a Cowboy
I want to be a Cowboy
A Cowboy! Uh-huh

Tonight we're taking my fast car
Were gonna go down to the Cowboy bar
I'm gonna wait till the club is full
and I'm gonna ride the mechanical bull

Cowboy look is the one I sought
Can't change now cause the clothes are bought
To be a true Cowboy was my fate
I can't help it if I was born late

All the Cowgirls in their Stetson hats
and their tight fitting jeans so they don't look fat
We'll all be listening to the Cowboy tunes
and stomp around like a bunch of goons

Cowboy look is the one I sought
Can't change now cause the clothes are bought
To be a true cowboy was my fate
I can't help it if I was born late

We're all OD'd on the Olden West
seein' who's Cowboy clothes look the best
I can ride that phony bull so damn good
Sometimes I think I'm Clint Eastwood


I know I'm a Cowboy deep inside
My hat band's made out of synthetic rattle snake hide
After a couple shit kickin' Cowboy movies
I check out the Cowboy scene down at Zubie's

And you can be my cowgirl

I wonder if that line ever worked for Rabid Roy?

21. The Thing Is That Roy Moore Literally Did What Jones Said He Did...

During a campaign rally, Jones literally pulled out a gun while wearing a cowboy get-up and started waiving it around like a lunatic...

37. Moore is such a nutbar.

Aside from being a proud ephebophile, he's completely clueless about how ridiculous he looks, thinks and acts. BTW, for any RW evangelicals reading: If he was banned from a shopping mall for illegal, predatory, creepy behavior, he should be banned from the Senate.

It doesn't have to be a big one; small donations add up. You can donate through Doug's website or the Actblue Page for Doug.
