Big Blooper

goldfishAmerica is officially The Land of Goldfish, creatures of remarkable incuriosity and an 8-second attention span.


I make this rather confident claim as polls are beginning to appear indicating support for the president sinking below 50%. This is mainly a result of the rotten economy but good old racism, no doubt, lurks deep in the numbers. Would that my progressive piscine brethren, disappointed that they didn't get their magic flying fishbowls, recall the momentous conservative catastrophe that's left us on the brink of another depression before they start pointing fingers at the White House.


I personally think Mr. Obama has done a splendid job in the face of crushing economic adversity, including a right-wing political party whose official policy is to only say "no" and a corporate media whose big-picture view of the world is limited to the small screen, and the bottom line.

For the next 14 months those very same TV's are going to be featuring a billion dollar's worth of non-stop Supreme Court-approved, Citizens' United-fed right-wing propaganda aimed right at the worm-basket of Goldfishland.

The sharks are swarming, and you are the sushi.




Republican Job Creation Update

john boehner"We're going to have a relentless focus on creating jobs." - John Boehner, February 10, 2011.

The following is #93 in a list of Republican job creation activities since they gained control of the House in 2011. None, sad to say, have yet to result in one, single new job.

(93) 10-5-2011: Today was the day the president's jobs' bill was introduced. It was blocked by not one, not two, but three parliamentary procedures by the GOP. They, of course, have the right to do that but the least the little bastards could do is create a jobs plan of their own as a counter-move. But they can't do that as it would expose them for the progress-blocking charlatans they are.

NOTE: As a result of an unexpected wave of enthusiasm the Republican Job Creation update now has its own web site. It will remain on the RP but a web site of its own will raise its visibility on the 'net as we progress towards the critical 2012 elections. And I thank you for your support.

Police sketch artist: Can you describe the man who stole your life's savings?

Woman: Yes. He was very large, gray, had big ears, a long trunk, and two tusks. He drove away in a Hummer with a McCain/Palin bumper sticker on the back.

Policeman: How's this? (Picture of Obama)

Caption: Though disappointed in the sketch Sue was oddly relieved to know that Glenn Beck had found a way to keep himself busy.
