President Obama gave a health care speech over the weekend in Minnesota and got the crowd in a frenzy by getting them to chant “Fired up! Ready to Go!”
If only. The Democratic Party is ready to go nowhere fast. As usual.
Democrats still can’t decide what to do with control of all legislative branches. Here’s an idea: Do nothing and hang in there until 2010 when the Republicans can get control of the House or Senate, or both.
The Democrats are at home as the “We’re on the outside looking in” party.
Meanwhile, the GOP’s new hero, “Hello Mr. Wilson!”, Dennis the Menace, he of “You Lie” fame, says he’s through apologizing to Obama and won’t do so again on the floor of the House of Representatives where he opened his big fat Jambalaya mouth and confirmed to the rest of the country why the South can never rise again.
Democrats say they’re ready to adopt a “Resolution of Disapproval” to hand Congressman Joe Wilson of South Carolina —- whichshould result in censuringthe Crackerhead.
Who do you think will cave in first? In a game of chicken, always bet the farm (forget the house, it’s probably already being foreclosed) on the Democrats.
Seriously, who could back down from a guy named Steny Hoyer? Sounds like the name of a character out of a Richie Rich comic book. “Steny, did you remind Chatsworth to bring the escargot?”
Or how tough can Nancy Pelosi be —- or proven to have been? She’ll just give you that disgusted mommy look because she caught you in the bathroom with one of daddy’s Playboy magazines.
So the radical right wing-nuts get the bulk of media coverage because they speak in bumper sticker terms that simple minds like the liberal media can understand and repeat on their newscasts because it’s actually becoming hip to be scared to death of everything.
Right wing-nuttery becoming fashionable? You bet’cha.
Maybe Phil Gramm, the guy who supported John McCain during the presidential election, was right when he said we we’re a nation of whiners.
The hissy-fit is the new “it.”
What’s the latest whiny “look what Obama’s doing now” hissy fit? He doesn’t always wear a tie with his jacket at speaking engagements.
Just like Ahmadinejad in Iran!
It’s a generational thing, clip-on breath. Ties are constraining and becoming as archaic as a mullet.
No tie-wearin’ Obama is a fashion statement that’s cool, fool.
But there’s no constraining the radical right from cruisin’ for a bruisin.’
Especially when they control Fox So-Called News.
Fox is the place where political loons go to nest.
Like former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, a religious fanatic with the common sense of a cashew, and, at any given time, every member of the Bush administration.
Fox So-Called News is dangerous because the Murdoch minionsdon’t report the news, they try to fashion it.
Listen to the slogan how Fox is “the most powerful name in news.”
Powerful? Again it’s hiding the fact in plain sight that it’s trying to control news events.
Examples? You got ‘em:
1. The Tea Parties (“Someone want to tell those numbskulls to stop using the phrase “tea-bagging!” It’s got a kinky, Bill Clinton-ish thing associated with it!”)
2. Glenn Beck’s Million Moron March on Washington (“Obama wants your kids to smoke Kools and wear burkas to school so they can learn that prayer in school causes swine flu and that global warming can only be stopped by same-sex marriage.”)
Fox isn’t a news organization, it’s the Republican National Committee. RNC Chairman Michael Steele parks the cars.
It wasn’t always that way. Fox used to take its talking points from the Bush Administration —- but since Dick Cheney is no longer president, it’s up to Fox to give the marching orders.
Onward Murdoch soldiers. Watch them march in goosestep to the Minister of Propaganda Der Beck’s daily paranoia.
Get your daily dose, Jabba the Butt Butt-pluggers.
Dose is the correct word here, because it’s the 21st century’s answer to a social disease.
There is a shot to combat it, though.
The same thing they use for rabies.
