The party of “Hell no, you can’t” just can’t stop delivering the stupid in their feeble attempt to repeal health care reform.
From Republican Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, this: No health care coverage that OKs Viagara for child molesters.
Never was in the bill, Tommy Boy. Never even imagined (except by a certain Okie senator experiencing cranium dysfunction) that something like that would have to take up valuable time on the Senate floor. But Coburn couldn’t resist, uh, raising the issue.
(Now if there only was a law that would ban Viagara commercials from running every hour on the hour on TV.)
It’s just more childish behavior by the Grand Old Poopy-heads. Apparently, Republicants holding their breath until they turn blue in the face won’t get them in any sequel to “Avatar.”
So, instead they’re holding up work we sent them there to do by obstructing committees. One was the Armed Services committee that had to cancel the hearings with a few good generals who wanted to update the Senate on a little unimportant thing like, oh, North Korea.
You remember North Korea, don’t you? It was one of George W.’s “evil-doers” from Team Axis of Evil.
That can wait —- there’s health care to repeal, dammit.
Do you even have to ask what would Jesus do?
One would like to believe he might not condone the violence targeted at Democrats who voted for health care reform.
That’s what’s happening, true believers. And some Republican lawmakers keep adding fuel to the fire.
Ohio Democratic Rep. Steve Driehaus received death threats and protesters are planning to demonstrate outside his house — where his children play with their toys.
Fox Noose, the “Hope America Fails” network, will probably provide live coverage — along with 3D glasses upon purchase of Karl Rove’s memoirs —- which, by the way, may have sold more copies if old Turdblossom (W.’s nickname for Karl) would’ve called the book “Going Rove.”
Also providing cryptic messages for future domestic terrorists is House Minority Leader John “Hell no, you can’t” Boehner. “Bad Tan” provoked the dangerous minds with his comments before the vote last week by saying, matter-of-factly, that Driehaus “may be a dead man” if he voted for health care reform.
Boehner, who is already a few spokes short of a wheel, should not only be defeated in November, but then forced to work as a towel boy at a tanning salon in Singapore.
Then there’s token RNC Chairman Michael Steele who, also matter-of-factly, said on Fox Noose that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi should be defeated in November — so “let’s get Nancy ready for the firing line.”
Lock ‘n’ load, ye sons and daughters of the new American Revolution.
It’s up to all ya all to stop the Antichrist from doing things like Hitler would do.
You know, like threaten violence against lawmakers who passed legislation the democratic way.
Or threaten the lives of the children of a Congresswoman who voted for health care reform.
Warn another member of Congress to be on the lookout for “snipers.”
Play God by telling lawmakers they’re going to burn in hell because they voted for health care.
Send out a weasel like House Minority Whip Eric Cantor and accuse Democrats of “dangerously fanning the flames” of extremism and using reports of vandalism and death threats against pro-health reform bill lawmakers for political gain.”
Or, best of all, control a major television news organization that promotes fear and feasts on hysteria resulting in rallies they organize against anything they don’t support on air.
There’s no need for violence.But creativity that doesn’t harm anyone is OK.
There was a report in the newsroom that someone stuffed tea bags in the toilet in the office of Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff of Pasadena.
Now that’s funny. And creative.
And, OK, childish.
But if that’s what it takes for some people to act like the adult in the room…..
