So Much Madness, So Little Time


Fox News is now ready to explain the complexities of American political life by calling in the political mastermind of the north. Hold your breath for this; Fox promised to provide Sarah Palin as a guest on Sean Hannity’s  9 P.M. show. This should bring us some much-needed comic relief.

Scanning the radio:

John Gambling needs a dictionary, a political science textbook and an education to go with it: “This is an ‘ism,’ ” said Gambling. “Communism, socialism, fascism, whatever you call it, that’s not what this country was designed to be.”

You can’t make this stuff up; I am not surprised Glen Beck actually said this since in the past he has proven just how far below normal his cognitive abilities trail: “The choice in the elections this fall,” he said, “is clear. Are you an American or are you a mouse? Are you an American or a European?”

And then there is my favorite buffoon. I am disappointed to hear he will not be leaving for Costa Rica any time soon.  I understand that Costa Rica is choosy about whom they allow in; so, we are stuck with him: “We need to defeat these bastards,” said Rush Limbaugh. “We need to wipe them out. Defeat the Democrats, every one of them that voted for this bill. The bill means “leftist radicals will now be making your health care decisions, instead of your doctor. . . America is hanging by a thread.”

Moving right along to the social networks:  Jay Martin used Twitter to incite violence against the President as Congress passed the health care bill Sunday night. “If I lived in DC, I’d shoot him myself. Point blank. Dead f—ing serious.” Martin shrugged off the seriousness of his statement. “If the FBI comes knocking tomorrow I wouldn’t give a f—. I didn’t do anything wrong.” I am sure his lawyer will correct Mr. Martin’s perceptions right after the Secret Service comes knocking on his door and reads him his rights.

And then there is Ann Coulter’s fiasco in Canada:

Coulter told a gathering that Muslims shouldn’t be allowed on airplanes and should take “flying carpets.” Not content with just offending once, Coulter continued mindlessly after Muslim student, Fatima Al-Dhaher challenged her, telling Coulter she didn’t have a flying carpet.  Coulter responded. “Take a camel.”

Students jeered Coulter’s remarks, and showed up in mass Tuesday night let her know she was not welcome at the school. Hooray for the Canadian students. Maybe John Gambling will lend her his new dictionary so she can look up oblivious.

  1. Yes, those liberals just love free speech don’t they? You can speak as radically as you want on any topic, as long as you’re a liberal, and they will applaud you. But if you are a conservative they will shut you down. What’s the matter, are you afraid the conservatives might actually have a point?

  2. Sarah Palin as a political mastermind? What time does this come on? I really need a good belly laugh, and nobody is more ridiculous than Sarah Palin. How she can keep such a straight face delivering those hilarious one liners, I’ll never know…
    On a more personal level, I will openly admit I am a leftist radical and damned proud of it. I have stood by and watched the right wing Retardlican led administration strip us of our constitutional rights to the point a good friend became frighted because the Dubya administration closely resembled a fascist regime (and she has personal experience with fascism back in the day), I have seen incompetent financial leadership nearly bankrupt this country by turning their backs to their Retardlican buddies to sidestep banking regulations in favor of unregulated profit taking. I have seen a personal vendetta throw us into a conflict in Iraq based on fabricated false accusations costing thousands of lives of our young men and throwing our country into a debt cavern with the Chinese we will probably never be able repay (and truth be know, there is strong evidence the conflict was created to give Chaney’s old company Haliburtion and other cronies a humongous cash cow of unbid federal war contracts). Bin Laden hasn’t been caught, and New Orleans still lies in ruins. But I do have to thank Dubya’s administration for one thing. His incompetent “leadership” led to such a horrific approval rating that the voting public gave the whole Retardlican party a swift boot in the backsides on their way out the door. Now all three governing bodies are under Democratic control, and some real improvements to the system can be made. But not that the Retardlicans would go down without a fight, no sir. Complete falsehoods, fabrications, and outright lies regarding every single bill the Obama administration has put forth has been vomited out of the Retardlican mouthpieces onto the American public. The health care bill has obviously been the worst. Pure unadulterated lies about death panels deciding who lives and dies, private insurance becoming illegal, gun toting IRS agents raiding the homes of people who don’t have insurance, your tax dollars funding abortions on demand, the administration exempting themselves and Congress from the bill, and on and on and on. And what is equally disturbing is that so many people out there believed this pathetic garbage without checking it out! Of course if any of these lies were true, nobody would support health care reform. But then the Retardlicans had the unmitigated gall to claim the bill shouldn’t be passed because the bill is unpopular with the public, due in no small part because of the baseless smear campaign they fabricated and heaved upon the American public! Unbelievable! I am SICK TO DEATH of having to endure Republican spun false data and reports, misrepresentations, intentional fabrications, misinformation, outright lies, bullying tactics, scare tactics, etc. in print and video in regards to health care reform! It is LAW, GET OVER IT!!! The Obama administration is the first administration in decades who decided they would fight hard to to the right thing (and fixing our broken health care system was one “right thing”) irregardless of political repercussions. That takes a brave man. He has made tough and unpopular choices that needed to be made. That is what a true leader does. I am proud of what Obama has accomplished, and will continue to support him through this and his next term.
