Stunning revelation: Sen. Joe Manchin discovers Obama’s War on Coal; Facepalming ensues

We didn’t know it was possible not to know that, but here comes West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin to show us just how wrong we were:

Gee, Joe. Ya think?

Guess the good senator doesn’t remember that.

What a novel idea.

Facepalm powers, activate!

In addition to causing an epidemic of bruised foreheads, Manchin’s shocking discovery also generated comedy gold:

Ask, and you shall receive:


Oh well.



Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W. Va.) won’t say if he’ll vote for Obama

Sen. Joe Manchin evolves on gun rights in wake of Newtown shooting; ‘Everything needs to be on the table’

Sen. Joe Manchin gets lonely, so very lonely

    Senator Manchin you be sure to explain obowmao care to all those out of work West Virginia coal miners.

  • ChampionCapua

    The mocking of @Sen_JoeManchin must necessarily skyrocket

  • JackD

    hey Joe, Rhode Island is not really an island! What the heck is that all about?

  • NixTyranny

    How long before Manchin figures out the guy he keeps seeing in the mirror every day is really just him?

    • Garth Haycock

      Perhaps Donna Brazile has figured out where the sun goes each night and could explain it to him.

    That’s funny Joe, you’re one of the first persons I thought of when I heard about Jug Ears’ new war. Should’ve kept a lower profile during the gun control debate sir, you need to stop trippin’ on your own d!ck.

  • Garth Haycock

    You didn’t know, Senator? Riiiiiiiiight.

    Claiming ignorance. It’s one of the many wrong things that regressives do best.

    Manchin is O’bama’s house slave.

    As a well-known senator once said, there are Two Americas. It’s really true. Yesterday, on Dennis Prager’s show, he told the story of meeting the head of the CA Republican Committee a few years ago (he had been a major radio figure for 20 years at the time) and this guy didn’t know who Dennis was. How is that possible????

  • mickeyco

    After the anti-Obama miners’ demonstrations in West Virginia last fall, he’s trying to say he didn’t know?

  • Jack Deth

    Senator Manchin’s revelations remind me of two old saws:

    “It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.”


    “Some people are born to stupidity. While others have it thrust upon them.”

    Plausible deniability meets implausible douchebaggery.

  • M F Scotto

    Pennsylvania and Ohio shocked as well!

    “Welcome to the party, pal!”

    • Jeremy

      great scene and a great movie.

  • ObamaFail

    What the good Senator is showing us is what happens when a Democrat finally digs their head out of Obama’s ass.

  • fivebyfive

    They will crush the price of coal, don’t worry buy coal stock and mining stock when it hits bottom then one of Obamas buddies will buy the coal companies and sell that coal to every other country that will use it. Reditribute the wealth

  • fivebyfive

    If look at the balls on man chin is too dumb to know O does not like coal, he might be too dumb to be a senator!

  • Rich

    Your not needed for Obama reelection anymore Joe. Jokes one you and your state.

  • Marvin Nelson

    Hey Joe, chicken fingers don’t actually come from chickens. Are you really that stupid or do you think that we are? You are a disgrace to Congress and I hope that the voters in West Virginia send you back into the private sector, where you might actually have to do some WORK for a living.

  • Jeremy

    Welcome to reality Sen. Manchin.

  • Jeremy

    Hey Sen.Manchin I have a simple message for you and it goes like this

  • MyrmidoNOT

    Wait until he figures out where
    those ‘buffalo wings’ thingees come from… 😉
    (Truly a revelation…for a deNOcrat.)

  • Steve

    Why are the Democrats heads so hard or skulls so thick hat nothing Obama says or does penetrates? He has been against coal since his first year in office…your first noticing now? This is what happens when you put party before principle.
