Dems say no to Obama
are signs of courage in Yellowville
House Democrats voted Thursday to

in the Democratic leadership, said, "I don't know. Well wait and see."

What comes next?
The Democrats should tell Bitch and Boner to go fuck themselves.
The public is SOUNDLY against tax cuts for the super-rich.
If the mad dogs refuse to deal, Obama (or a Democrat with courage)
could call for
people to empty into the streets if they think the super-rich have been
