Happy Friday 

It really has been hilarious seeing each of the Rethug presidential hopefuls exposed as the liars, incompetents, and frauds they are. Of course, the laughter will turn to agony should one of these assholes get "elected."

God dammit, we need Edwards.

The Horror 

If this Freakshow becomes president, you’ll find me giggling uncontrollably in the corner of a padded cell.

The fact that it’s even a remote possibility makes America the most retarded nation on earth.

Just Get Stoned 

My rock band is playing at Club Retro tonight. It's all ages (lotsa punk kids in a large hall), so unfortunately no booze.

We’re scheduled to play at 9:00 -- plenty of time to get drunk after.

The Various Shades of Excrement 

As Kos acknowledges, this categorization is not perfect, but it’s an interesting little read.

Not a dime’s worth of difference between Obama and Hillary.

I’m thinking this is just a big misunderstanding.

Of “Showdowns” and Partial Roll-Backs 

This entire post about the fucking pathectic Dems is worth a read, especially if you're trying to get in the mood to wrap your lips around the tailpipe of your car. Here’s some choice excerpts.

On funding the war:
It is crystal clear that the Congressional Democrats are divided and incapable at best, and incompetent at worst. We have been through month after month of similar "showdowns", followed by similar collapses. This time, it at least has a financial price attached: if the Democrats are willing to sell out on the one overriding issue that brought them back into power, in the 2006 elections, at least we know they are able to use it as bargaining chip for other issues. Somehow, that is the exact opposite of comforting.
On appeasing people who would never vote for them:
They spend a hell of a lot more time worrying about what the racists think about brown people, and the religious extremists think about non-extremists, and the corporate lobbyists think about corporate needs, than they've ever once worried about any of us. Their strategy is all about placating, of all fucking things, the Republican base. That's who they're absolutely obsessed with: making sure the Republicans aren't mad at them, that thirty percent of voters who would rather join militias and drift off into the countryside than vote against hardcore Republicanism anyway.
Kill me now:
Even if elected, it seems improbable that we could hope for more than moderate Dem caretaker status, in the presidency -- a partial rollback of Bush-era abuses, but not a full rollback, a healthcare plan cobbled together in some fashion as to make sure the insurance companies are well taken care of, and only moderate screwing of unions instead of full-bore screwing of unions. It will be a hell of a lot better than being shipped to Abu Ghraib in a duffle bag, but it is not really something to get giddy over.

Huckabee ’08! 

I was going to write a post about why I’m rooting hard for this Christian-fascist piece of shit to win the Rethug nomination, but someone at Kos already did it for me.

Happy Friday 

Dear Media:

Please spare me the bullshit about the Iran NIE "bombshell."

When it comes to BushCo, there are no bombshells. A bombshell implies that there will be consequences. Stop insulting my fucking intelligence.

No, this doesn’t mean I would prefer the media not report on the crimes of BushCo; I’m just sick of the game, which goes like this:

1. BushCo commits unquestionably impeachable offense.

2. Media reports on new "bombshell"

3. Said "bombshell" expires after standard two-day news cycle.

As the annoying assholes say, rinse, repeat.

A Certain Type of Imbecile 

There’s a certain type of imbecile in America that really, really bugs the shit out of me. It’s the imbecile who has never read a lick of good history, political analysis, or cultural commentary, yet has the nut to send out idiotic wingnut "deep thought" chain emails espousing racist or other Glen Beck-inspired crap. It's the idiot who has fallen for the Republican "immigration" scam. It's the idiot who buys the Limbaugh definition of liberalism. It’s the idiot that made BushCo possible.

It’s the idiot who’s all atwitter about Ron Paul.
