Once Is Never Enough

Dr. EvilS
o what does the blue egg in this comic represent?


By that I mean every bit of legislation that the Democratic-led House and Senate has tried to pass since early 2009.

The Republican Party, you see, has made it part of their 2010 and 2012 election strategies to block any legislation that comes their way. To aid them in this regard the GOP is currently using the filibuster more than at any time in American history. They are, by uniformly voting no on everything, blocking any real stimulus, thus driving America deeper into the economic dumper.

The next step in the plan is to blame Democrats for their "failure", something they're presently doing with the aid of Fox News, the propaganda wing of the GOP, and with alarming success.

Come November way too many voters will suddenly look up from American Idol, notice the piles of bills stacking up, and will troop en masse to the polls to vote Republican. It'll happen, folks, only this time the black vote won't be there as it was in such large measure in 2008, bolstering the liberal totals.

Such is the fever dream the Republican's are counting on to triumphantly sweep them back into office in 2010 and 2012, whereupon they'll begin right back where they left off in 2008... which is robbing the country blind.

That's their job, and they're damn good at it.

This is the kind of evil that was previously only seen in the movies, an entertaining fiction, but one in which the bad guys always got their rightful comeuppance in the last reel. This time unfortunately the Right Wing owns almost everything you see, hear and read, not to mention having the Supreme Court in their pocket, and they're writing the scripts. To hear them tell it, Dr. No, Hannibal Lecter and Michael Myers would've all been much nicer guys if only they'd been given enough tax cuts.
