The NEW Illustrated Guide to Mendacity and Folly in the 21st Century.
Posted on | January 30, 2009 | 1 CommentSo Rush wants Obama to fail? GREAT–that means that super-patriot Rush Limbaugh wants the country to go through at least 4 more years of total economic breakdown. Now that’s what I call, “Loving this country.” And what’s amazing is that this idiot is the de facto head of the Republican Party. He called on the Republican members of Congress to all vote NO on the economic stimulus package, and they did. Doesn’t anyone in that party have any independence? Do they take an oath to put the interests of the party above the interests of the country? Granted there are things wrong with the stimulus package. We need to focus on a “bottom up” approach, because the people at the bottom WILL spend the money. That’s what’s always been wrong with the trickle-down approach. It never trickles down. I mean, look what happened with the bank bailout–they paid themselves bonuses–the very people who caused the bank failures to begin with! Talk about gall! They should be put to work as street cleaners. Except, I don’t think they’d be any better street cleaners than they were bankers!
However, lest you think I’m only going to knock Republicans, I am pleased to see that a Democratic asshole has bit the dust. Illinois impeached and convicted their Chief Tcherkoff, Governor Blagojevich, the guy who tried to auction off Obama’s empty Senate seat and considered appointing Oprah to it. Blago, I’m told you favored quoting Tennyson and Kipling. Well, you’re NOT a better man than I am, Blagojevich. Have a good weekend folks.
