As We Recall

vote stupid outWay too many voters made the mistake of voting for wolf-in-sheep's clothing Conservatives in the 2010 mid-terms. But that won't happen again in 2012 because Republicans are busy trying to make sure that no one but Republicans get to vote in 2012.

I'm serious. In states with Republican-led state governments they're busy passing laws and setting up road-blocks against students, soldiers, immigrants, ex-cons or anyone who waited until the last minute to register to vote. Minorities get no special attention because "Voting while black" has always been a crime in the GOP's eyes.

Meanwhile, in Texas, they're trying to give special voting privileges to the elderly and to gun-owners.

Gee, I wonder which party they prefer?

And have you heard about Michigan? Republicans there are feverishly trying to enact new laws that impose a sort of financial martial law on the state. If passed the state government could "fire local elected officials, break contracts, seize and sell assets, eliminate services - and even eliminate whole cities or school districts without any public input."

That must be the "small government" Republicans are always talking about. The one that owns every inch of your ass.

Meanwhile, back in Wisconsin, its legislature is busy writing laws that will allow the government to essentially give its public utilities away, without a bidding process, irrevocably. The Koch brothers, heavy financial backers of Governor Walker and non-so-coincidentally in the energy business, are licking their chops so loud at the prospect of snagging these properties they're in danger of breaking the public peace.

It's simple: We should never allow any citizen's right to vote be limited. Ever. Those who abuse power in this way deserve our sharpest rebukes.

See you in 2012, assholes.


Deflowering maidens? It was called 'Droit de seigneur' or 'Right of the first night', a law giving the local ruler first crack at the local brides. It sounds plausible but there's some disagreement if it was ever put to practical use. Sort of like a Republican campaign promise.

Still waiting, John.


Fox News Lies!And what is Fox News spewing lately? Lies about trade unions and National Public Radio.

If you don't watch it please request that your local cable provider remove them from your monthly bill by calling them about it at three in the morning.

Gov: And so, as your new governor, it's my singular task to cut spending and work ceaselessly to create new jobs. Thank you.

Foxbert: Cut! Okay, that's a wrap.

Foxbert: That was excellent but, just between us, what's the first thing on your agenda?

Gov: What else? Kill the unions and assert my monarchical right to deflower maidens.


Foxbert: Bwah-ha-ha! The camera's still on!

Gov: Bwah-ha-ha! Who gives a damn!?

Obama: Don't look at me. You voted for 'em.
