They Fear the Frankenspecter Monster

" The issue, he said, "really relates to ... whether or not in the United States of America our people want the majority party to have whatever it wants, without restraint, without a check or balance."

---Senator Mitch McConnell on Arlen Specter's defection to the Democratic Party

Hey, Mitchie. Would that be like letting the majority party go into a trillion dollar war, tank the economy and ruin the environment?

Just wondering.

Every post same as the last post

Please don't think that I haven't thought that I ought to come over here and post some crap on my own blog, fer cri-yi.

I have thought that. It's just that for the last 100 days every post I've thought about in my head was of the same theme: "How fucking stupid do the conservatives think we are?'

And the answer is always "Pretty goddamned stupid".

Today's affront was caught by me on an am blather-radio station who's right wing harpie host was congratulating Fox for not broadcasting President Obama's next press conference, scheduled to mark his first 100 days in office.

They can't, she breathlessly remarked, possibly cave in to the Obama love fest. Really? Really?

This from the same network that would run as breaking news anytime President Bush got in a taxpayer funded aircraft to get himself back to Crawford for some brush clearing?

Further, thanks to the fact that I work in an industry that inexplicably hosts a lot of conservatives, I get loads and loads and loads of rightie crap in my inbox.

No. 1 - I would never discuss my political beliefs with suppliers OR clients, so the fact that conservatives always do just proves how unprofessional they really are, all the while claiming the superior end of business acumen.

No. 2 - George Bush didn't do press conferences. When he did, liberals watched. We prefer to be engaged in our government. Conservatives just prefer to be pushy. And god forbid, intelligent discourse.

S'okay. Their self-proclaimed "Know-nothingism" is turning off the vast majority of the American public.

Fortunately, self-identifying republicans are falling by the wayside day by day.

And as they fail, so they give off the stench of desperation.

And no one believes them anymore.
