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.

Welcome back, Wundrun.
I listen to an AM conservative talk radio station sometimes, because the left-leaning radio station is no longer broadcasting (and because it's fun). My very favorite new thing is Rush Limbaugh's snide comments about President Obama's "private jet". You mean Air Force One? The plane that every President since Eisenhower has flown on? Was it a "private jet" when Presidents Reagan and GWB were flying back to their respective ranches? It's just too ridiculous to get angry over.

I'm equally appalled by the right wing assumption of my work constituents that either everyone simply agrees with them or should.

Welcome back!

Here's the thing--after the Bush elections of 2000 and especially 2004, Republicans gave us the phenomenon of the sore winner. Think about it--have you ever seen people who WON something act so put-upon and peevish? Small wonder that they're behaving like asshats now, after losing.

I didn't listen to Bush's press conferences very often. After a few, I just got sick of a room full of room temperature IQs, the press included.

I do find myself watching Obama's press conferences. Sometimes he even surprises me.

p.s. Nice to have you back.

Methinks the batttle hymn of the republic USA is "Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition." Correct me if I'm wrong.
