GOP Sen. Chuck Grassley tweeted this morning that his Memorial Day event at the Aplington cemetery in Iowa was canceled due to rain. He invited readers to his Facebook page to see his speech.

Some liberals and “real journalists” immediately mocked Grassley for confusing Aplington cemetery with Arlington National Cemetery. They even turned #Aplington into a derisive hashtag:

A quick Google search would have saved them the abject and total derpitude.

No, not the whole “Internet.” Just you goofs:

    See, Brett, et al. Your mind was already blown. That’s why you’re an idiot.

    Probably should cut back on the cocaine a little.

    • Rulz

      Thank you for your service!

  • goat10000

    Gotta give some of these guys credit for owning up to it and not making excuses.

    • David A. Schiferl

      I give more discredit for not doing simple research and also for following someones twitter feed to only disparage them.

      • CptNerd

        It’s easier to put your foot in your mouth when your knee jerks all the time. Doubt that they’ll learn that, though.

    • trixiewoobeans

      Some of them STILL had to throw a little insult in, even in their apologies. Bottom-Feeders.

  • pinto

    idiots for sure.

  • kch50428

    Aplington – a town in NE Iowa near Grassley’s hometown… and also near Parkersburg, Iowa – which was devastated by an F5 tornado 5 years ago… Parkersburg is also the town where a beloved football coach was murdered by a lunatic that should have been in custody but wasn’t…

  • Terry_Jim

    It’s OK, @BrettLoGiurato we knew who the idiots were, all along.

  • Hank Scorpio

    Reason #1,875,471,519 why trolling the internet for minor mistakes is a fools errand. Congrats to all the fools that took care of their errand for the day.

    • joe johnsson

      And you just did the same.
      Thanks for coming out.

      • Hank Scorpio

        Clever variant of the old “I’m rubber and you’re glue” classic. Genius like that can only be found on the internet. Hat tip!

  • jgeorgia2000

    Now that this proves that progs/ Libiots never research before showing their bias now where are the Libiots # for 57 states and corpseman?

  • waltermitty2012

    Well played, Aplington, Iowa. Your decision to change the town’s name from Ft. Aplington to Aplington in 1925 in order to confuse and embarrass dozens of idiots on Twitter 88 years later, is the best and perhaps the longest planned practical joke of all time.

    • Brian Roastbeef

      Give the self-important left enough time and they’ll stupid themselves over everything. Being able to mock their arrogance is the one characteristic that justifies having them around.

  • Gallatin

    Well at least they admit that they were the idiots.

    • nc

      But they had to say “We’re all” instead of owning up individually.

    • Dennis Vest

      I don’t buy their apology. They should have checked first before laughing their liberal arses off. Lesson to be learned liberal leftists “reporters”…(“it’s sunny here”)

  • Booker

    “We’re all idiots.”

    All who disagree say “nay”. The ayes have it again. Leftist are complete idiots, confirmed by unanimous consent.

  • TJ

    Blind hate of some can makes some point and laugh, even when they are looking in a mirror.

    • joe johnsson

      Its good of you to admit your flaw.

    Here’s a reminder for all those ragging on Grassley, especially the so called reporters. “GOOGLE IS YOUR FRIEND.”

    • mike_in_kosovo

      I always thought it stood for “Google it yourself, f*cker.”

  • Jack Deth

    Some people just don’t know when to stop gnawing on their foot or feet.

    Thankfully, they supply a large share of revealing humor here.

    Perhaps, we could create a Petting Zoo for them?

  • IvanRider

    They let it be known that their contempt for Grassley outweighed their ability to think long enough to do a simple Google search. Fortunately, this is Grassley. So they were willing to owe up to derpitude.

    If this had been Michele Bachmann talking about Aplington, then I’m confident the anti-Bachmann hate machine would make excuses or insist that she did a typo, rather than owe up to a mistake on their part. Especially the Huff-N-Puffs.

    • Doriana Migliara

      And the only reason for their contempt is his party affiliation.


      OWN, not OWE. Spelling is so hard …

      • Jill

        ^Apparently, tact is similarly as difficult^


          SORRY YO! I forgot to add … LOL! I meant that to be a gentle jab.

  • Jane Dyal

    Yes, yes, the liberal idiots strike again. God save us from these idiot clowns.

    Even if had been a typo why the big deal? Who are these guys? The interweb typo task force?

    @Brett LoGiurato and the rest of idiot clowns, you assumed you know better than others. Hahahah look, who got the last laugh.

  • LeftistsStink

    Owe @ChuckGrassley a nice big apology. You right, we wrong. Aplington cemetary or bust.”

    …and not only that, it’s cemetery, you moron!

  • alvinjh

    Peace. Props to our vets. Stow the venom for one day.

  • Dennis Vest

    Liberal morons are so eager to deride & made fun of others they also don’t bother to check facts! Next time maybe (I doubt it though) they’ll do an actual fact-check before laughing at a Senator’s Tweet. The joke is on these idiots!


      mke not made

  • Donald Koller

    I hate spelling cops. They should all die aslow painful death.

  • AZWarrior

    Michelle’s book shouldn’t be “Culture of Corruption”, it should be “Culture of Retarded LIEberal Asshats Who Can’t Find Their Collective Asses With Both Hands”.

  • Larry Miller

    Obama would say; ”I wonder what ”JANE” Madison would think?

  • Otter2

    Yep, Flyover Country. Typical lib reaction to Iowa actually existing.

    • TexSizzle

      Except right before and during the quadrennial Iowa caucuses; then it’s the most important place on Earth.

  • JoJo58

    And THESE are the idiots that think they’re intellectually superior to anyone and everyone else. THEY are the ones that want US to “sit down and shut up” but they’re too stupid to google a city to see if it was a typo.

    They’re so quick to mock ANY conservative. One would think they’re deranged in their search of ANY error. Maybe they should have checked out those 57 states their messiah was jacking his jaws about…or the CORPSE men…or the many, many mistakes that Obama has said, but ignored because HE is the chosen one….unfortunately, chosen by these morons.

    • Ntr

      Those who fake being ‘intellectually superior’, like the left does, are expectedly also the biggest idiots.

      • JoJo58

        LOL I don’t think they’re faking, they really THINK they are. Too bad they can’t see themselves as the rest of the world does. Useful idiots.

  • scrubjay

    Sarah Palin was widely mocked for her supposedly erroneous remarks. We do party like it’s 1773. Paul Revere did warn the British. Leftists only mock their own ignorance.

  • MaMa1

    How about an apology for the town of Aplington too. I guess that would be too much for a liberal. Maybe they can blame it on Bush.

  • Patricia McDonough

    With liberals, you can’t teach stupid, it’s a gift.

  • huluvaguy

    It’s the ‘quick to belittle’ mob mentaity of the liberal left. Way to look like idiots liberal assholes. You can be enlightened to this mob mentality through reading Ann Coulters book ‘Demonic’ She reveals the origin of the liberal mob dating back over 200 years ago. You’ll gain a new undestanding of the tactics liberals have always used to falsly accuse and belittle an adversary… well as how they can be exposed for what they are.

  • Randy W

    Grassley is a must follow

  • Janice LEE

    At least the senator didn’t refer to our Marine Corps as the Marine Corpse and he didn’t SEE some fallen soldiers in his audience. Nor did he give shoult outs to some Indian (feather not dot) chiefs in the auditorium before he mentioned that Major Hasan shot and killed nearly one dozen fellow troops and wounded many others.
    I’ll take a typo over the traitor in our White House any day at all.

  • detroit19

    There aren’t too many things more entertaining than reading about the stupidity of the American people. Wouldn’t you think, with all of the resources available today, for FREE, no less, that people would avail themselves of a little knowledge? Truth is not high on their list of priorities, especially if the bearer is not a Democrat. Dumb, dumb, dumb…

  • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

    Not trolling, but just a thought:Nobody’s perfect. Even I’ve made mistakes…Lots of them! And in spite of knowing a lot, I don’t know everything. But bless these Liberal Tweeters for trying, anyway…. #RightWard Jawamax 8<{D}

  • Guest

    If he were a liberal we would be trolling him as well while the lefties would be defending him,lol..though

  • Zathras11 @B5

    Liberals always assume they are the smartest person involved in any situation.

  • Chris Chambers

    At least some who were wrong had the gonads to issue an apology, which is a good thing.

  • joe johnsson

    Pity, the folks below aren’t looking at the timeline….
    Remove the log from your own eye.
    Nothing to see here.

  • Jay Stevens

    And here is Byron Tau:

    “Ahh. Belay that. RT @kept_simple 2m @nycsouthpaw Aplington, Iowa. Chuck is accurate for once.”

    The snark is strong with this one.

    • mickeyco

      One of those semi-apologies progs are so fond of.

  • Jim Rasmussen

    Love “Byron Tau ” saying “Chuck is accurate for once”. Yeah, Byron, as if you never make mistakes. Oh wait… never mind.

    HA!! Idiots!
