Roger Stone, a revered figure in conservative American politics for his long history of candidate consultation, lobbying, and strategizing, apparently took his "hard edged" political style a step too far when he called recently deceased former first-lady Barbara Bush a "vindictive drunk." Due to the comments he made on conspiracy-spreading website InfoWars, he was uninvited to a gathering of the Okaloosa Republican Executive Committee by Chairman Mark Franks.

Stone commented to InfoWars host Alex Jones:

I understand I'm going to take a lot of crap for speaking the truth about Barbara Bush. She was a mean-spirited, vindictive drunk. She is ascending into hell right now. She's not going to heaven. She was a bad person.

Don't believe me? That quote is one of many extreme statements made by Stone during the full interview.

Stone also wrote on Instagram:

Barbara Bush drank so much booze, if they cremated her … her body would burn for three days.

Chairman Mark Franks regretted having to take action, but did what he had to do. He commented to the Northwest Florida Daily News:

It's tough to lose a speaker when you're three weeks out, but this is what I felt needed to be done out of respect for Barbara Bush. I thought he'd be entertaining, but for me this went over the line.

In an email, Stone claimed he was the one to cancel his own engagement because of the GOP organization's desire to censor his words.

The day that some officious country club Republican in Fort Walton Beach tells me what I can and cannot say in public will be the day that hell freezes over.

That may be so, Mr. Stone, but you may find it more difficult to find a paying job with outspoken opinions like these.

Some jobs will just give you night terrors forever!

TW: There are a lot of horrible crimes disclosed here. Violent.

Prison is a horrifying place. It is brimming with society's worse. And the people who work and patrol those prisons are living in fear on the daily. Now not everyone is pure evil but plenty are, and those who keep us safe from these people lay their loves down, probably with not enough pay. Imagine spending day in and day out with murderers and lunatics? No thanks.

Hold my beer!

We all know Murphy's Law is real. And never, NEVER say... "So what next?" That is just calling on the spirits of evil to mess with you. Life is a struggle and sadly some moments are met with sorrow then met with hardship and then misery. It's a wonder we all get out alive..... Oh. Wait.

Warning: This is adult subject matter. Escorting is an arduous job. And it is a job. Maybe not one we'd all love to do but it's work none the less, especially when you have to mess with someone you may not find the most "aesthetically appealing." The workers in the trade have an endless well of stories to tell us. And you know we're dying to hear. Our questions on this topic are bottomless.
