Earnest G. Smith, Georgia Idiot

| February 14, 2013 | 35 Comments

You would think that a state lawmaker should be at least passingly familiar with the US Constitution.  After all, there is this little thing called the “Supremacy Clause” in the US Constitution that says if state and Federal law conflict, Federal law takes precedence.  Plus there’s also that pesky little fact that the US Constitution is the “supreme law of the land”.

Well, apparently someone forgot that.  As in Earnest G. Smith, Representative for the Georgia House of Representatives District 125.

Seems that Smith is none too pleased about a recent rather crude but arguably complimentary bit of Photoshop satire which imposed his head on the body of a porn star.  So he’s come out in favor of  making such vulgar satirical use of Photoshop illegal in Georgia.  “No one has a right to make fun of anyone,” he says.

No, I’m not kidding.

What a freaking idiot.  But he managed to get elected anyway.

    Well, seeing Representative Smith, were I the porn star I’d be suing him.

  2. FatCircles0311 says:

    Another anti Constitution Democrat. I’m shocked.

  3. Ex-PH2 says:

    He actually spells his name “Earnest”, not ‘Ernest’?

    Sorry, Earnie, but you’re a politician and making fun of politicians comes with the job.

  4. PintoNag says:

    No sense of humor.

    Bad.

    No understanding of the Constitution.

    Worse.

  5. MCPO NYC USN (Ret.) says:

    Hondo. Cut him some slack. He is from Georgia.

  6. MCPO NYC USN (Ret.) says:

    Oh no. I hope I don’t get in trouble for that.

  7. Powerpoint Ranger says:

    Yeah, if he were from NYC then guns, 16+ oz. sodas, ER pain medication and privately donated food to homeless shelters would have been included in the bill.

    He seems to get elected from the north Macon area, so I can’t be totally surprised.

    Someone send him a copy of “The people vs Larry Flynt”

    @5

    Gee MCPO, Rep. Hank “the island could flip over” Johnson and Jimma “killer rabbit” Cahtah are not amused. ;)

  10. Rob says:

    I saw this yesterday … someone in my twitter feed shared it, but he’s a hardcore liberal, so he labeled Rep. Smith as a Republican. Some people are just plain stupid.

  11. A_Proud_Infidel says:

    If he’s that thin-skinned, he doesn’t need to be in politics, just look at all the crap the left pulled on GW Bush & Co.!

  12. JP says:

    *loads photoshop*

  13. MCPO NYC USN (Ret.) says:

    I don’t have PhotoShop. Someone please paste his face on a jackass and send it to him under my name!

    Thanks!

  14. Green Thumb says:

    Clown.

    Typical.

  15. Just Plain Jason says:

    What the heck I want to se…never mind…I don’t have any eye/mind bleach handy.

  16. MCPO NYC USN (Ret.) says:

    God Bless America …I just read the article … very funny. Then I attempted to link to Mr. Walker’s web site (the PhotoShop Amendment Violator). This is how far I got:

    He is now famous! Good for him!

    MCPO! I just found a warrant that was put out on you, down here in Joja. Seems his highest priest and liberal honor,teh Earnest G. “Porn Star” Smith has reviewed your highly comical comments and suckstarted the process of having one issued for you. I’d stay way the hell up north where ya are, bro….I here the brig down at Kings Bay sucks too. Yep, heard it’s ran by the Coasties. And we know how well water dogs and them puddle pirates git along…*cackle*

  18. I suspect that people like him get elected for the specific purpose of being made fun of. I know we have several in California who are none too bright.

  19. MCPO NYC USN (Ret.) says:

    @ streetsweeper: The last time I was in Georgia, I was at FLETC for an extended period. I swore I would never return. So he can kiss my Royal Irish Ass! But thanks for the heads up!

  20. willcommentforfood says:

    Try going to Smith’s website, one gets blocked. I’ve noticed more cowardly politicians are doing this more and more.

  22. Reaperman says:

    Streisand effect? My guess is that 4chan will take care of this idiot for us. From what I saw online, it could (and will become) a lot worse. Hope he likes goats, cups and lemons.

  23. MCPO NYC USN (Ret.) says:

    @ 21 willcommentforfood … great blogging name!

  24. Veritas Omnia Vincit says:

    @14 GIMP is a freeware photo manipulation software, not as interesting or fun as photoshop (I have been using photoshop since 1.0) but it is functional and entertaining once you get a little comfortable with the tool set. You can correct your own personal images with it, making some nice shots from your vacation photos.

  25. PintoNag says:

    @22 Spot on!!

  26. MCPO NYC USN (Ret.) says:

    @ 25 VOV … why are you calling me a GIMP?

  27. Ex-PH2 says:

    You guys have NOT been making fun of me since the day I started posting here.

    You should be ashamed of yourselves. What is WRONG with you? Naughty, naughty.

  28. Veritas Omnia Vincit says:

    @27 LOL….THANK YOU, I needed that on day 5 this week.

  29. MCPO NYC USN (Ret.) says:

    @ 28 … I look at your photo everyday in the Gallery of Misfits and Miscreants … you are too damn smoking HOT to make fun of!

  30. Ex-PH2 says:

    (Sigh). I miss being picked on. :(

  31. Country Singer says:

    Not all of our GA legislators are idiots. Just the Dem ones. As another one of our state lawmakers remarked about Earnest “Goes to Atlanta” Smith: “He’s the conductor of his own crazy train”.

  32. Ex-PH2 says:

    I actually thought you guys were kidding about Hank Johnson, and then I found and watched the video.

    While that constitutes 2 minutes of my life that I will never get back, I think ADM Millard (?) showed great restraint in not falling out of his chair laughing when Johnson said he was concerned that Guam would tip over.

    Was it Pericles who said “The stupid will rule every chance they get”?

  33. Hondo says:

    Country Singer: every village needs its idiot, and every vilage has at least one. Earnest is merely living proof that they sometimes get elected to the legislature. (smile)

  34. streetsweeper says:

    Okay, picking on Ex-PH2 since she feels oh so neglected. Gird yerself sailor. *cackle* When you were a young woman and going to enlist in the US Navy, your mama done warned you about the virtues of being stranded with a shipful of horny young men.
