I’ve been wondering how the GOP would next attempt to woo African-American voters.
Now I know.
Look, it's our new black friend!
Here’s hoping they never figure out that we really aren’t that fucking dumb.
More about the GOP’s adventures on the Internons at my home-from-home, Rumproast.
I really do intend to start blogging regularly about the rat bastards of the GOP (major and minor; past, present and future), but I keep reading things like this and thinking I should leave it to the professionals.
If that doesn’t make you laugh until you need CPR, there’s always Eric Cantor’s TwitterStream.
Still not feeling good but there’s always time to mock the crappiest political party in America (via Politico – Sorry!)
Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) delivered a speech next to a giant photo of Pelosi, with the words “I am trying to save the planet” underneath, tweaking the speaker for a comment she made in an interview with Politico.
By refusing to hold a vote on domestic drilling because of environmental concerns, King said Pelosi has decided that “saving the planet is worth more than saving the Homo sapiens.”
What I intend to do with the oil is not the issue…
But wait, it gets better!
Rep. Donald A. Manzullo (R-Ill.), one of the stars of Friday’s session, launched into a long soliloquy on John Quincy Adams, likening his fight against slavery to the controversy over an offshore drilling vote.
Just plain fucking stupid. And Manzullo is a co-sponsor of HR 2060. A bill that means the difference between life becoming a bottomless pool of liquid dog feces and merely a very deep pool of the same. Unless you’re the sort of mindless drone that doesn’t like music.
Anyway, here’s Pelosi:
Pelosi on Sunday dismissed the GOP floor protests as “the war dance of the handmaidens of the oil companies,”
Yeowch. Careful Madame Speaker, you keep spanking them like that they’ll follow you home.
Going to swig generic Nyquil straight from the bottle now.
Oh how foolish the Lefty Lieburuls must feel. For years they’ve whined that the entire GOP is little more than a collection of greedy pigs who have the same reaction to the sight of money that a Catholic priest has to the sight of an altar boy.
This is sure to shut them up (via The Washington Post):
The former treasurer for the National Republican Congressional Committee diverted hundreds of thousands of dollars – and possibly as much as $1 million – of the organization’s funds into his personal accounts, GOP officials said yesterday, describing an alleged scheme that could become one of the largest political frauds in recent history.
See that? He may not have taken more than $1 million. That’s restraint.
For a Republican.
I’d also note that so far there isn’t the least sign that Mr. Ward spent the money on male hookers, drugs, butt plugs or wet suits. Continue reading
