Bad Eggs

racist eggsFrom almost the very day that Barack Obama was inaugurated as president the Republican Party has been doing its best to tank the economy. Their goal, famously stated by Mitch McConnell in a moment of treasonous candor, was to do anything to make sure that Mr. Obama was a one-term president.

To that end, the GOP employed the supermajority and the filibuster for the first two years of the Obama presidency in order to clog up the Senate. And for the past 18 months the GOP has almost literally sat on its hands in the House, refusing to propose any bill that would stimulate the economy.

Currently the odds of a Romney presidency aren't in their favor. The economy is struggling along just well enough that Mr. Obama seems to be on his way to a second term. But then what? Would the GOP continue to strangle the economy for another four years?

I believe they will because the primary concern of our titans of industry has never been president Obama's politics, it's the color of his skin. And they'll do whatever they can to tarnish his exceptional moment in this country's history, like their current multi-state attempt to limit minority voting.

So if, in the coming years, you can't find a decent job and the air is going bad and the water burns like a torch and the crops wither to dust much of the blame should fall on the well-tailored shoulders of rich, racist patriots like the Koch brothers.

Oh, That Mitt.

big fat liarMitt Romney received a moist, deep, and, we hope, satisfying endorsement over the weekend from porn star Jenna Jameson. She will, no doubt, love him long-time

Seven-hundred forty-eight Washington lobbyists and dozens of corporate and lobbying firm PACs have already allocated $1.87 million towards Mitt Romney's campaign.

The Obama campaign and the Democratic National Committee do not accept contributions from federally registered lobbyists.

Republican: Wow, it was really irresponsible of Harry Reid to say someone told him Mitt Romney had paid no taxes of the past decade.

Democrat: How so?

Republican: Well, Reid doesn't have any proof. He's just got speculation.

Democrat: And you think if he's going to make a claim about what's in Mitt Romney's tax returns, then he should offer proof?

Republican: Exactly.

Democrat: Fair enough. But by that standard shouldn't Romney prove that he's telling the truth about his returns?

Republican: This isn't about Mitt Romney. It's about Harry Reid.
