Separated At Birth: Beckel Boy / Tommy Boy Edition

Oh, the vagaries of fate! How the one can grow up with at least a modicum of Falstaffian humor, whereas the other couldn’t crack a joke if it was written on an eggshell and he sat on it.

Take a look, courtesy of AmericanInfidel on Twitter, at Beckel Boy trying to say something, anything(!) in response to Allen West:
Watch through until the end, when they juxtapose Beckel Boy a la Randee of the Redwoods with LtCol West in military attire.

I’ll tell you what: there’s more intelligence in that headband that I’ve got on than the guy on the right.

See, Beckel Boy, when you want to play to the audience’s sympathy for the fat man character in the face of being overmatched by someone clearly your superior in every way, you need to cleave more closely to your brother Tommy Boy:

In any case, Beckel Boy, you aren’t fit to gainsay Allen West in the slightest, so lay by your dish in silence.

     Beckel’s first reaction was “shut up.”  When all else fails, try to silence your opponent.

    An fail Beckel does, in both the ‘Often’ and ‘Epic’ categories.

    I still remember what he did during the 2000 election Florida recount, when he wanted to pressure electoral college members to change their vote.  A bully then, and a bully now.

    Of course Beckel mischaracterized West’s comment on people with disabilities–West did not insult them, he “insulted” the system (and the poor economy).

    I literally get nauseous listening to Beckel. I play a game seeing if he ever and I do  mean ever can single out a thought and communicate it without jumbling them into the same stuttering incoherent sentence. How the heck did this guy ever get into a speaking profession when he can’t even present a complete one liner or not stutter and jumble his thoughts.  Add his hateful mumbling and you might as well listen to your dog fart.

    Maybe if somebody got Bob hooked on booze, weed, blow, heroin, Chinese food and hookers like Chris Farley was, he’d be as funny as Chris Farley was.

    …Nah. Who am I kidding? Farls is funnier 15 years in the grave than Beckel will ever be. And there are simply not enough substances-of-choice in the world to change that.
