Funny Strange

funny strangeI know you're probably sick to death of this stuff by now but please scroll down to Mike's Video Vault (below) and check out the Greatest 9-11 Story Ever Told. It took this guy 4 minutes to say what took me ten days. And a lot funnier, too, dammit.


In the last Republican debate Ron Paul gave the indication that as far as health care is concerned, you're on your own. Don't come crying to the government when an overnight stay in the hospital costs more than a new Lexus.

So I learned today that Mr. Paul's 2008 presidential campaign manager, Kent Snyder, died of pneumonia at the too-young age of 48. He didn't have insurance and left behind a $400,000 medical bill for his family to pay.


While I'm on the subject, you know why Republicans are so against universal health care, Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security, don't you? I think it's because blacks and Hispanics are beginning to age out and the GOP, bless their little racist hearts, will be damned if non-whites get the opportunity to sit back and enjoy the fruits of their labors.


Puzzled by today's comic? Then I invite you to read the sad story of Cameron Willingham.

As for the coyote: Governor Perry claims he sometimes goes jogging armed with a laser-sighted .380 Ruger. Seriously. It's because he's a-feared of snakes. Seriously. His claim is that one morning, while for a run, he shot and killed a coyote that menaced his Labrador retriever. Seriously. Since then he's left the gun at home and stuck with box-cutters. I made that part up.



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 #82 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.

(82) 9-14-2011: I gotta hand it to the GOP. In this bleak economy they've found a way to increase jobs... in hospital emergency rooms. What they're doing is trying to cut funding in the transportation bill for bike paths and pedestrian walkways, thus ensuring more mayhem on our streets and guaranteed employment for EMT workers. It's pure gee-nyuss I tells ya!

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.

A funny story? Hmm. Okay, I got one. There was once this guy convicted of killing his three daughters but it turns out that he was innocent. However, I made sure he was executed anyway. Funny, huh?

Yup. Shoulda gone with the dead coyote story..
