“If Obamacare passes, that free insurance card
that’s in people’s pockets is gonna be as worthless as a Confederate dollar after the War
Between the States—the Great War of Yankee Aggression...” -- Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) proving this IS all about
Excerpt: Could McCain be out of a job before the general
According to a new Rasmussen (R-Liars) poll, McCain
holds a seven point lead over J. D. Hayworth.
The poll results show a startling drop in support
for Arizona's Depends senator; McCain led Hayworth
by over 20 points just four months ago.
Demo challenger Rodney Glassman said the Rasmussen
poll showed that Arizonans are "ambivalent"
about both candidates and not happy about a choice
between "Washington insiders in the Republican primary."
Hayworth recentyly made news when he talked about
having sex with horses.
Hayworth claimed the Massachusetts Supreme Court
defined marriage as "the establishment of intimacy."
Maddow told Hayworth he was lying, since that
phrase was never used by the Massachusetts Court.
Hayworth said, "That would mean if you had
affection for your horse, you could marry your horse."
You know Paul Harvey is looking up from Hell,
angry that Rethug-sex with horses became acceptable after he died.
"Oh, my gosh. I was thinking about moving to

It's amazing to me when people talk about how
great their Detroit cars are and immediately
start listing the work they've had done on them.
I had a 1986 Toyota that I sold in 1996.
It had 110,000 miles and the only work I'd ever had done
was the occasional tune-up and state-required
emissions tests. I did my own oil changes.
We usually logged 30mpg city and nearly 40mpg
We sold our 1993 Honda in 2004 when we bought
a 2001 Toyota.
The Honda had over 150,000 miles on it.
Again, no time in the shop
except for tune-ups and required emissions tests.
28mpg city/38 highway.
Our 2001 Toyota has 100,000 miles on it.
Same deal, no unexpected trips to the garage.
We get 32mpg highway and a whopping 45mpg highway.
If by "outperform", Danny Detroit means "more
efficient", then our Corolla kicks his Monte Carlo's butt.
If he's talking about acceleration or top speed,
he needs to finish high school and grow up: nobody cares.
If Detroit would start designing cars that could
get 45mpg and go 150,000 miles with nothing but oil changes
and tune-ups, I'd buy one in a flash. I
don't blame American workers; I blame incompetent management.
Deep down, Danny has no choice but to face the facts.
If you have two pizza restaurants next to each other and one sells 500
pizzas a day
and one sells 100, why does the restaurant that sells 100 insist that
their pizza tastes better?
For decades, Detroit sold us cars that would last almost until the payments
Then Japan came along and sold us cars that lasted 20 years.
I think he's anquished that the Detroit "magic" has died.
When MoveOn talks about a primary challenge for
someone who voted against Health Care Reform,
they mean helping a Progressive Democrat run
against the Blue Dog incumbent in the primary.
It's like when Ned Lamont ran against the vile
Joe Lieberman and beat him. Lieberman then ran as an
independent and got a lot of Repos to vote for
him, but I think this year there will be too many progressives
running to save all those races. Blanche Lincoln
is getting a primary challenge from Bill Halter, the progressive
lieutenant governor of Arkansas.
MoveOn is trying to move the whole Democratic
party to the left and weed out the pink ballerinas. I say, great idea!

When Republicans passed the Bush tax cuts, the
CBO said that would raise the deficit by $349 billion. And Republicans,

yes. When Republicans passed the first Bush tax cuts in 2001, the CBO said
it would raise the deficit by $1.3 trillion —

"We have to get our act together." -- Monsignor Charles J. Scicluna,
the Vatican's internal prosecutor, on the Church's
to bring more transparency to investigations of priest rapes,
Instead of "getting your act together," why not just stop raping
Do you think these rapist priests get together for some circle
Confessing priest: Father, I have
sinned - I raped another dozen little boys. (Giggles)
Absolving priest: Any of them
hot? Got pictures? (Giggles)
Confessing priest: Yes, little Billy
here has the hottest butt ever.
Absolving priest: He is
hot - write his phone number on the back, OK?
Confessing priest: OK, but I don't
want the photo back if it's sticky. (Giggles)
These priests are like the rapist thugs at Halliburton, right
down to their fondness for anal sex.
Like Halliburton, these rapes wont stop until somebody steps
in, like Al Franken.
"The damage suffered by the victims can never
fully be repaired." -- Angela Merkel, Chancellor of
Germany, on the sex-abuse scandal in her country
more than 300 former raped Catholic students came forward,
Merkel knows what it's like to be a victim of sexual assault.

When women tennis players were fighting for equal
pay in tennis tournaments it was Arthur Ashe,
a man who reached the pinnacle of his profession
partly because of support from women players like Billie Jean King,
who stood up at a U.S. Lawn Tennis Association
meeting and argued against equal pay for women players.
The Equal Rights Amendment, which was one state
shy of becoming the law of the land, was defeated in Illinois
because African-American men, mostly Democrats
at that, voted it down, a betrayal of the many women, white and black,
who had fought and even died (remember Viola
Liuzzo?) for civil and voting rights for African-Americans for decades.
It was, after all, Stokely Carmichael who infamously
declared, "The only position for women in SNCC is prone."

Excerpt: Pope Benny the Rat rebuked Irish bishops Saturday
for "grave errors of judgment" in sex abuse
and ordered a phoney Vatican "investigation"
into the Irish church to wipe out the scourge.
In a letter, the pope did not mention any Vatican
responsibility. (Of course not - that's anger God)
And he doled out no specific punishments to bishops
blamed by victims and Irish government-ordered
investigations for having covered up years of
abuse. "You have suffered grievously and I am truly sorry,"
Benny said, addressing himself to the generations
of Irish Catholics who suffered "sinful and criminal" abuse
at the hands of priests, brothers and nuns.
"It is understandable that you find it hard to
forgive or be reconciled with the church," he said.
"In her name, I openly express the shame and
remorse that we all feel but I'll take no action to stop it.
The offer of rape farms is the best recruiting
tool we have here at The Church."
Benedict used his harshest words for the abusers
themselves, saying they had betrayed the trust of
the faithful, brought shame on the church and
now must answer before God and civil authorities.
"Conceal nothing," he exhorted them. 'Openly acknowledge
your guilt, submit yourselves to the
demands of justice, but do not despair of God's
This - from the guy who ordered rapes covered
This - from the guy who shuttled rapists from
parish to unsuspecting parish?
This - from the guy who ordered rape victims to remain silent?
This - from the guy who took out rape insurance
to help pay the inevitable claims?
Excerpt: Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Assley) has long been
a vocal critic of the Democrat's health reform efforts,
but today he took credit for some provisions
of the bill, and talking up his own role in crafting the legislation.
Grassley has been among the most vocal opponents
of Democratic reform over the past year, but he's also
known as one of the biggest flip-floppers on
the issue. At the start of the process, Grassley was expected to
be among those Senators working to craft a bipartisan
bill. But it wasn't long before he abandoned that effort,
and helped to start the "death panel" horseshit
heard at town halls across the country throughout last summer.
Walter says: Just like the Stimulus bill.
These cretins run against it nationally,
but back home they are all the ribbon-cutting ceremonies for the photo-op.
Excerpt: For nearly 30 years, India and Bangladesh have
argued over control of a tiny rock island in
the Bay of Bengal. Now rising sea levels have
resolved the dispute for them: the island's gone.
New Moore Island has been completely submerged,
said oceanographer Sugata Hazra, a professor
at Jadavpur University in Calcutta. Its disappearance
has been confirmed by satellite imagery and sea patrols, he said.
"What these two countries could not achieve from
years of talking, has been resolved by global warming," said Hazra.
Scientists at the School of Oceanographic Studies
at the university have noted an alarming increase
in the rate at which sea levels have risen over
the past decade in the Bay of Bengal.

The word is after Brown won Massachusetts Obama
and other Dems wanted to scale Health Reform back,
but it was Nancy Pelosi who wanted to go "all
in" and said she would get it passed. So, it appears that she is
the only senior Democrat with any balls.
"A new Poll shows more Californians disapprove
of the job Schwarzenegger is doing than any governor in modern state history including Gray
Davis, who was ousted by Schwarzenegger in a popular uprising. Seventy-one percent disapprove of Schwarzenegger's

demographics including party affiliation."

The idiots in California got what they voted for.

Nona was outraged at Rush Limbaugh’s recent insensitive

With a long history of writing edgy, provocative
and often political leaning songs she decided to strike back.
“I’ve been so pissed off with Rush Limbaugh (for
