    Everyone should hit that link. Now that the zero has been properly characterized the people need to know.

    That shirt looks homemade, which raises the obvious question is anyone selling them?

    Last I checked SCOAMF already had 4 entries on Urban Dictionary.¬† It’s traveled a lot further than AoSHQ.¬† Saw a (photoshopped) new Obama book, witht that as the title (spelled out).¬† Let’s push this.¬† Nothing works better than mocking the Left.

    It’s certainly popular, and I couldn’t agree more! The Morons seem to have been early adopters, if not the originators; Ace’s place was where I first encountered it.

    But we have to find a substitute for “cluster****”, for those who don’t like to use foul language, and that hasn’t happened, yet.

    “But we have to find a substitute for “cluster****””

    How about “Charlie Foxtrot”?

    Then we need to add an “F”, and we already have one.

    It’s still funny and true!

    In most acronymic usages of erstwhile “bad words” I will substitute “stuff” for “shit” and “fouled” for “fucked.”

    I think in this instance “catastrophe” would work.

    In place of the F word, how about FiretrUCK?

    With them threatening war and taking people out, I think it’s OK for the blue-haired laidies and grey-beards to pronounce the actual words clear and proud.

    Just say “Scum Foatus” (SCOAMFOTUS)

    I forget which Moron came up with the phrase.¬† He/She has been using it for a long time now, but it started catching on.¬† Even beating out “JEF,” which is so much easier to type.¬† Go figure.

    I’m guessing Ace came up with SCOAMFOTUS, though.

    You know what tickles the shit out of me? People saying crap like “Kramer from Seinfeld called some guy the N word”. As though if you came right out and said it in the context of relaying the information it would be tantamount to you joining in the slur. So childish its almost pathetic.

    What drives the nail in the coffin of an incumbent’s campaign is when he becomes a joke.¬† Pass it on!

    It’s also nice to see Dan spared no expense in producing his shirt, even if he did steal the design.¬†
