I’m old enough to remember when St. Ronaldus of Reagan laid a wreath at the grave of 49 SS soldiers, and said they, like the Jews, Slavs, Gypsies, Poles, and everyone else they murdered, were “victims too”. Good old Ronald Reagan. What a nice man. Joey Ramone was less than impressed:
Way back in 1933, someone got a picture of the supposed “Loch Ness Monster”, setting off decades of speculation about the creature’s existence. Personally, I’ve never seen it. But I’ll tell you this: the Loch Ness Monster is easier to believe in than a lot of Republican policies and tenets.
Inspired by the “Ten bands I’ve seen/one is a lie” meme that’s going around Facebook, and by two friends who riffed on it, here’s my take on the winners and losers in Trumpcare.
Here’s a not-so-quickie I did on Lamar Alexander, who is encouraging us all to enjoy our national parks a few days after Donald Trump proposed to cut their funding. Oh, and after voting to confirm the guys who’ll do the hatchet work.
Yeah yeah Bill Clinton Anthony Weiner. Bad guys, shitty people. But neither of those guys were hypocritical moralizing persecuting shitheads and beside that, when it comes to sheer predatory perversion, the GOP has the Democrats beat by a cuntry mile.
When you marinate your brain in hatred and bullshit, this is what happens.
I’m gonna start cross-posting my Raw Story vids over here, when I can remember.
A Kentucky Senate committee has passed a bill that would allow store owners and other providers of services to refuse to serve interracial couples, interracial families, or couples of different faiths. In addition, the bill would prevent the refused couples from seeking redress through the courts. […] What is the point of this, the worst-written…
I’m old enough to remember when the French were cheese-eating surrender monkeys, and Walter Jones and Bob Ney, two particularly stupid republicans from two particularly dumbass states had the House cafeteria change the menu item “french fries” to “freedom fries”. I remember the US threatened to boycott French products, and I remember the Penatgon dropped the French from a regular military exercise. I remember when the conservative media made fun of then-candidate Kerry’s for “looking French, because that’s a country of pussies and fuck the French for not joining our Glorious Iraq Adventure.
Today, of course, nous sommes tous Francais, including a lot of fucking hypocrites wrapping themselves in a flag that a few years ago they would have used as toilet paper. Some of us -those of us who’ve always loved France- have not forgotten. So along with your yellow ribbon car magnet, take your sudden (and cynical) love for France and fourrer dans le cul.
Oddly enough, I almost employed this clip myself in an unrelated post, but Booman nails the Republican dramedy:
There was no path to victory for the Republicans, and every sane person knew this from the moment that the Knights demanded a hostage. But we all had to go through the motions of accommodating the lunatics. We all had to pretend that the votes they forced and the delays they caused were part of a real fight between two parties where the outcome was in some doubt. After all, it was theoretically possible that Mike Tyson could have had a coronary in the 30 seconds it took him to knock out Michael Spinks.
The Knights didn’t even have that kind of chance of winning.
In the end, what can you say about the Republicans’ performance here?
They smelt of elderberries.
