the king of the world!If the Republican Party was the captain of the Titanic, they'd be playing chicken with icebergs, knowing full well their place in the lifeboats was secure and that their stocks in sea-liner industry futures were conveniently set to sell short.

These people are scum, the kind you find at the bottom of Bangladeshi squat-slabs, but you know who are worse? Fundamentalist Christians.

It's one thing to be as willfully evil and greedy as the modern Republican party but without enough supporters such a coalition of entitlement couldn't possibly sustain itself. The true base of the GOP really consists of no more than about 10% of the electorate. These are people whose only goal in life is to acquire as much lucre as possible and they don't care how they do it or who suffers as a result. Wage phony wars, rig the mortgage system, pretend that the economy is going to tank unless granny switches to a cheaper brand of cat food for her meat loaf, whatever. It's all good.

On their own they couldn't possibly gather enough votes for their party so they co-opted the Judeo-Christian God as though they invented it, and along with the hairy thunderer came all the half-wits and imbeciles who'll accept anything on faith rather than reliable data. Republicans could barbecue puppies on the Mall as long as they said a prayer thanking Jesus first and these fundie lunkheads wouldn't bat an eye on their way to the voting booths.

I'm not kidding. A primary Biblical sin in infidelity, but because these are Republican congressman they can act out literal infantile fantasies with prostitutes until the soldiers in Afghanistan come home and still get re-elected.

Hi, Senator Vitter.

The funny thing is that Democrats accept god, too... all of them, because they honestly believe in freedom of religion. This of course enrages the vast fundamentalist underbelly of America, the wide swath of Appalachian residents who voted solidly for John McCain in 2008, the ones who know you are going to Hell. And we are in hell, an economic one of pure Conservative creation.

So, fundies, a little heartfelt message from me to you. Republicans don't care about you and they never have. You're just a tool for them. Democrats can't promise a heaven on Earth but they can deliver universal health care, a fully-funded Social Security and a completely paid-off national debt if you'll only close your Bibles and open your god-damn eyes.

You may now return to handling your snake, or whatever the hell it is that you people do out there. Frankly, I could care less, which is as it should be.


Note: To my great surprise I managed to get raptured, briefly, on Saturday but took the first flight home. That's all I can say as I'm under one HELL of a non-disclosure agreement. (Although, just between you an me, eat all the shrimp you want.)



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

So far the list of GOP accomplishments for 2011 is:

(1) Attempted curtailing of abortion rights.
(2) Attempted defunding of Planned Parenthood.
(3) Attempted defunding of NPR.
(4) Investigating Muslims.
(5) Declaring English as America's Official Language.
(6) Reaffirming "In God We Trust". Yawn.
(7) Challenging AARP's tax-exempt status.
(8) Approved defunct funding for failed religious schools.
(9) Attempt to destroy Medicaid.
(10) Attempt to destroy Planned Parenthood
(11) Shutting down the government
(12) Attempt to destroy the EPA.
(13) Attempting to eliminate financial counseling.
(14) Passed a House budget that gives $4 trillion in tax cuts to the rich.
(15) Spend $500,000 to discriminate against gays.
(16) Continued toadying for the rich.
(17) Pretending the deficit is to blame for slow job growth.
(18) De-funded SETI. (ARGH!!!!!!!)
(19) Tried to kill Chrysler two years ago... which is now going to pay back all its government loans.
(20) The Judicial Branch of the GOP, the Supreme Court, votes 5-4 to deny consumer class-action suits.
(21) Redefining rape. Yes, redefining rape.
(22) Pushing for spending caps tied to GDP. Bad idea.
(23) Claimed credit for dropping oil prices because they passed a bill.
(24) Refuse to reduce oil subsidies.
(25) Stood helplessly and watched as Senator John Ensign made Bill Clinton look like a Carmelite nun.
(26) Attempt to retool Rep. Paul Ryan's Medicare-killing bill.
(27) Prevented the raising of the federal debt limit. Let the catastrophic job loss begin.
(28) Watches Rome burn with their Wall Street pals.
(29) Filibustered bill to repeal oil subsidies.
(30) Rejected Goodwin Liu for judge simply because Mr. Obama nominated him.
(31) Abortion. Abortion. Abortion. As in "restrictions".

Nope. No job creation here. Seriously. Not a fucking employment sausage. Move along. Move along.

I'll keep adding to this list until the Republican House does something to create jobs. I unhappily predict this is gonna be one lonnnnng list. After all, you don't get rid of a sitting president by helping the economy.


Fox News Lies!And what manner of lie is Fox News spewing today? Neglect to mention that the Saudi prince who's plugging your crappy network is also the network's 2nd largest shareholder.
