Rush Limbaugh–Hater of America

Did this idiot ever consider that if Obama fails, the country fails?

Did this idiot ever consider that if Obama fails, the country fails?

So 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.

Let’s Go A-Viking

What? Didn't you know it was a global crisis?

What? Didn't you know it was a global crisis?

With our parochial vision, the people of the United States … AND its government … seem to think that the present economic “recession” — meaning meltdown — is somehow just a problem in the United States. Especially the people who brought it on. Well, guess what? We’ve managed to crash the entire world economy. Now that’s an accomplishment that George Bush can be proud of. Of course, he wanted to blame it on Clinton. And Sean Hannity wants to blame the lack of an immediate solution on Obama. But let’s face it–the world has been screwed. Iceland went bankrupt. The government that was supposed to take care of the problem has already fallen. Yet still we think that if we only throw enough money at the banks whose greed and rapacity are the main villains in this comedy, everything will be alright. Ah, well, none are so blind as those who will not see.

My Goodness, How will I pack all of my things in that time…

There is a difference between an immediate closing and signing the order for closing immediately

I have to go with Jon Stewart on this one, it’s not like they have a lot of stuff to pack. While Darth Cheney has called these the “worst of the worst”, we know that most of these guys were poor schmucks caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. Hell, has Cheney ever been right about this situation? Or any other? Sorry Dick, it was my fault for getting near the line while you were wildly blasting your shotgun at some birds.

There are still innocent men in Guantanamo, innocent men who’ve languished in the place of America’s shame since 2002. Many have been tortured, many subjected to humiliating treatment, unable to contact their families, refused the right to defend themselves against unspecified charges. Granted there are men who plotted against the US; but because there are so many innocents, they should be brought to federal prisons, veritable country clubs compared to this concentration camp, as soon as possible. The records and evidence–if there is any–can come over later. Juridical triage should be performed to determine which prisoners are most likely innocent, and get them the hell HOME. Before a year.

Please.

Congratulations Barack Obama, Our First Hawaiian President!

Oh, right, he’s also out first African-American President (if you don’t count Warren G. Harding, but that was just a rumor anyway and in any case, he’d only have been an octoroon.) There were a few spots in yesterday’s activities that made me laugh, the greeting to outgoing President Bush, which the band had to try to drown out, the flub that Chief Justice Roberts made while administering the oath, that strange poem that had everything AND the kitchen sink in it, and that great prayer by Rev. Joseph Lowery. Warrens’ benediction was low-key, thank goodness. Obama’s speech, curiously enough, was as well. Perhaps he wanted to call attention to the great problems facing us–and to point squarely at the asshats who’d at best enabled them, at worst, caused them and fanned their flames.

Chris Wallace made the biggest asshole comment by calling into question the legitimacy of Obama’s oath of office. Hey Chris! I know you’re being paid by the Hate Squad over there at Fox, but be real. IT AIN’T A MAGIC SPELL. 10,000 brooms ain’t gonna rise up out of the splinters and inundate us just because a few words were off. It’s not the oath that confers the Presidential power–it’s WE THE PEOPLE. Maybe the right wingnuts will use your asshat comments to go on believing that Obama isn’t the real president, but the rest of us will know what a bootlicking hack you proved yourself to be. I hope your dad wasn’t listening.

Fred and Bert are still with us, but only barely, after celebrating at the Lafayette Park Inaugural Ball, inside the big oak tree. They really should lay off the fermented acorn juice. :) But remember–TODAY IS SQUIRREL APPRECIATION DAY. Get some nuts and spread’em around!
