Karl Rove on O'Reilly's gig. Fox News. Everyone on the right hyperventilating over a bullshit article in Politico.
I guess we belong to a 'vast left wing conspiracy'. Wish someone had told me, I never get the memo. I hope there's t-shirts with this one. Last time we had a 'VLWC', I missed the whole thing. I was sick that day and Mom wouldn't write me a note.
The bloviators on the Right just can't stand playing second fiddle. They had their moment in the sun and they went dark. The Republicans got the keys to the car and wrapped it around a tree. Now, we are stuck with the repair bill and they're whining about how its our fault 'cause we gave them the keys.
These idiots are the most pathetics bullshiters in existence. They're damaged goods, poison; if they touch you, you get cooties. Even swamp rats and dung beetles have renounced their membership in the GOP. Watch any of them on the TV Box and you'll be magically transported back to 5th grade. Everyone of them sound like a spoiled kid who just got caught by the teacher cheating on the test. They're obnoxious, vain, greedy, proudly ignorant and just plain vile. I bet they smell like shit too.
Which brings me to some of the news today.
Over at Crooks and Liars, they have a piece on Chris Matthews show where he discusses how Pres. Obama is ceding too much power to Congress. OK, look... this isn't hard, folks. There are three branches of gov't. Yes, I know Bush thought there was only one and a half (him and Cheney are one and the right wing Supremes make up the half) Pelosi and Reid are head of the Congress, that's one third of the power. Obama is head of the Executive, that's another third, and of course the Supremes control the last third. So, to make this easy so even Chris Matthews and his merry band of idiots can understand is simply Obama is working WITH Congress. He recognizes that in order to get shit done, he has to come to the table to deal, not demand.
Eight years of Bush acting like a tin-horn dictator has jaded these dumbasses. They expect every president to come out swinging like a dipshit who didn't get his way. They just can't handle a leader who is actually good at his job. Don't you just wish you could walk onto that set and slap the shit out of each of them.
Talking Points Memo has more bad news about AIG. Those bastards are paying more bonuses with OUR fucking money. But they say they won't do it any more.
Fuck them! Take over the company. Nationalize the bastards! We've poured $170 BILLION DOLLARS down that shit hole and they still feel the need to reward the greedy morons who got them into the mess in the first place. How does this work? At every job I've had, if you fuck up, you go home or at least get reamed by the boss. You don't get a bonus, unless you count continuing your employment a 'bonus'. This company experienced the worst loss for a quarter than any other company in history, $61.7 Billion. They shouldn't have 'bonus' or 'retention award' in their vocabulary. One of the excuses they give is that they need to pay out these awards to keep the good talent at their company.
Bullshit! Talent? What the fuck? Talent at sinking a company? Who would want any of these assholes working at their firm anyway? Don't bonus them, cut them loose.
"We cannot attract and retain the best and brightest talent to lead and staff the AIG businesses, which are now being operated principally on behalf of the American taxpayers — if employees believe their compensation is subject to continued and arbitrary adjustment by the U.S. Treasury," AIG Chairman Edward Liddy said.
This is why we should be massing on Wall Street with pitchforks and torches. These assholes think that they are a breed apart and that their word is Scripture. We've allowed them to rise to this stupid level of importance, now it's time to bring them back to earth. Giving them billions of our dollars was a fucking mistake. The government should have set up a Home Loan Thrift similar to what was done in the 30's to give home owners some help. The big corporations should have been left to twist in the wind.
On Huffington Post...shit, that place always looks like a newspaper puked all over it. Let's see.... Dana Perino says Bush should get credit for the market' recent upsurge. Yeah, that makes a lot of fucking sense. Bush leaving office perhaps.
Hmmm....what else is there? Tucker Carlson unloads on Jon Stewart for his take down of that idiot Jim Cramer.
Hahahahahahaha! Tucker Carlson? That's rich! Tucker Carlson has barely the talent of Jon Stewart's last turd. I'm sure he still has damp diapers from the last time they met when he took down Crossfire.
Well, that's all my sensibilities can handle on this Sunday. I have about ten pounds of cranberry pork salami to make today. You all be good or if not, be real bad!
So Mote It Be,
