A Plan For Republicans!

Just for fun, if I'm feeling a little too calm and complacent, I'll sometimes put on the Fox "News" Network. It usually makes my head explode within five minutes or less. Invigorating I tell you!

Today I watched a show called "Fox News Watch" on which the "fair and balanced" panel was discussing the stimulus package and all it's evils. They claimed that it was and is a sham and that you cannot in any way measure jobs saved and/or created. They then proceeded to point out over and over and over again that unemployment is still over 9.7%.

I was suddenly struck by a brilliant plan in which the Republican party could easily prove what a Liberal/Democrat boondoggle this stimulus package was.

It so easy... Stop accepting the stimulus funds for their state! In addition any stimulus funds they have already "mistakenly" accepted... just return it! Brilliant! This way they can prove what fine fiscal conservatives they are and ultimately when their states job production ultimately rises and the job losses plummet they will be the shining example of how the stimulus was a fraud. It's just so easy!

I suggest Fox "News" watchers who believe the Stimulus Package issued by President Barack Obama is a failure write to their governors, Congressmen and Senators and tell them to return the evil, socialist, communist, un-American stimulus funds! Do it immediately lest you fall into Obama's and his democratic horde's clever trap.

Go on we're all waiting... Really do it... Show some guts you guys... Aww c'mon now, just email them... I'll even supply the link so you can easily find your states representatives... www.statelocalgov.net... We're waiting.

Cheney Spews Same Old Disproven Lies! Why?

Does this sound familiar to anyone?

"We took down [Saddam Hussein's] government, a man who'd produced and used weapons of mass destruction, a man who'd started two different wars (Much like Bush & Cheney I 'd like to add), a man who had a relationship with terror."

It is the rational that the Bush/Cheney administration used to take us into war with Iraq. This little snippet sounds as though it could have been uttered any time in between 2002 and 2003.

Well would you be surprised to find out that Dick "the troll" Cheney blathered this garbage just last Sunday?

The reason it would be idiotic to continue saying these things now is because they were proven to be lies. Here is why...

The Iraq Survey Group, ordered by George W. Bush to assess the status of WMDs in Iraq, concluded in its final report, Saddam's WMD capability "was essentially destroyed in 1991." The Iraq Survey Group, eventually led by the hawkish Charles Duelfer, also noted that at the time of the invasion, Saddam had no "plan for the revival of WMD."

One must ask themselves why Cheney would continue to perpetuate these lies. What is to be gained by this type of rhetoric. Perhaps he believes if he continues to repeat this false mantra again and again and again, ad nauseum, that history will magically rewrite itself.

Next time you hear Cheney spew this crap just remember it is a lie. While your at it enlighten the person sitting next to you so we can stop the fallacies and misinformation of a man who believes he has the rights to his own facts.

Joe The Plumber Is A Ungrateful Whiney Bitch...

Do you remember Joe the Plumber a.k.a. Sam Wurzelbacher? Did any of his opinions mean anything to you? If not, don't worry, he still thinks his opinion matters and apparently is ready willing and able to give it.

Joe recently gave an interview to PA Public Radio reporter Scott Detrow where he discussed why he didn't back Senator John McCain any more and now disparages him when speaking at various public events.

In the interview Detrow pointed out that "Joe the plumber" would just be plain old Sam Wurzelbacher of Ohio — Joe the Plumber wouldn’t exist – without McCain.

Wurzelbacher responded by saying "I don’t owe him shit... He really screwed my life up, is how I look at it.”

Joe continued "McCain was trying to use me,"... "I happened to be the face of middle Americans. It was a ploy.”

I think Chris Mathews summed it up perfectly when he opined that Wurzelbacher is a real life "Frankenstein's monster" that has come back to attack his creator.

Either way Joe's 15 minutes of fame had elapsed sometime last year... I think someone should alert the ingrate.

Tele-lie...

Look Ma, no teleprompters!

I am really getting f*king tired of this teleprompter crap. What is this with the right wing talking point that Obama needs to use a teleprompter. On Fox News today I saw noted jackass Bernie Goldberg flat out say that not only is President Obama "addicted to teleprompters" but the mere fact that he uses them means he is "has no original thoughts" I know it's Fox News' Raison d'ĂȘtre is to try to delegitimize this President at every turn but I have to wonder if their viewers are really buying this one. The fact is that Barack Obama writes what is in the teleprompter! Would it me more genuine if he read it off a cue card or an index card or god forbid... His hand! The fact is every president form Reagan on has used teleprompters. Get over it!

Now I'd like to tackle the misconception that Obama is dependent on these scrolling wonders and therefore doesn't have any "original" thoughts. I can dismiss this fallacy in one sentence. Does anyone remember about a week ago when President Obama went to the Republican retreat and accepted their pre-scripted attacks...Um I mean their questions and then proceeded to wipe the floor with them... Without the aid of a single teleprompter. It was a conversation between 140 plus Republicans against one Democratic President and he annihilated them speaking off the cuff. 'Nuff said!

For your enjoyment, here are some photos of other politicians using teleprompters...

Sarah Palin's Hand Jive

One of the right wings most adored talking points is that President Obama uses a teleprompter when he delivers speeches. They play on this like he's the first man ever to do this even though George W. Bush used them extensively and still couldn't get his words out in a coherent sentence.

Guess which Republican loves to beat this non-existent dead horse over and over again. Yup, it's Sarah Paling you betcha'! She loves to take pot shots at Obama for the teleprompter usage as if it discredits anything he says even though he writes most of what rolls across it.

Here's the beauty of this story. Whilst speaking at this weekends Tea-Party convention, Palin sat down for a Q&A session (scripted and pre-approved questions of course) with the simple tea-bag folk. What was caught on camera as she fielded the canned questions was priceless...

Awww, look. It's little Sarah's mini hand teleprompter... How hypocritically adorable!

Hopey Changey? Lamestream? Really?

How's that dopey-quitty thing working for ya'?

Yesterday while speaking in front of a small crowd of Tea-baggers Sarah Palin mocked President Obama and those whom voted for him by asking "How's that hopey-changey stuff workin' out for you?" Palin also went on to label media in general (But I'm guessing not Fox News, because she works for them) as being "lamestream".

What are you nine tears old? Are you channeling George W. Bush? You're getting paid over one hundred thousand dollars and the best you can come up with is this hyper obnoxious "hopey-changey" line?

Someone who is as dim a bulb as you are can hardly afford to mock a man who graduated Columbia University, Harvard Law School, was the president of the Harvard Law Review and then went on to beat you like a rented mule for the Presidency. How's that working for you ex Governor of Alaska.

Guess What?!?! Poll Proves Most Republicans Are Bat Sh*t Crazy!

The Daily Kos has conducted a Poll of Self-Identified Republicans to see where they stand on a number of issues. The results are back and to say that they are eye opening would be an understatement. Instead of listing all the results here just jump over to the Daily Kos website and take a gander at the results. I knew the Republicans had a few nut-jobs in their ranks but this poll is proves it's way worse than anyone thought.

How To Keep A Book On The Best Seller List... Even If It's A Steaming Pile Of Horse Manure!

Here's a quick note. If you wrote a book and wanted to make it stay on the best sellers list longer than it should, here is some advice. First write your book. Then create a Political Action Committee or P.A.C. and begin accepting donations. When you have a great deal of money start buying up your own book. Oh, 60 or 65 thousand dollars worth should be enough. Then give all the books away. This way your book will look like it is selling well and any money you spend will come back through book sales plus tax deductions. It's legal money laundering and it looks like people are buying your book even if it is a piece of garbage. The only other thing you would need is a total lack of ethics or ... you would have to be a fraud like Sarah Palin.

P.S. - Don't forget to use your disabled child as a prop at all times!
