You know the old joke: How can you tell they’re lying? Their mouth’s open. The Republicans have no alternative but to lie. Two pointless, resource-sapping wars, fiscal irresponsibility in the broadest sense, the promotion of a society of fear, hate and ignorance. There is nothing positive they’ve to offer.

The retards who think they can save America. Right.

Just in case you doubt the need for real healthcare reform, here’s the latest reason it’s needed.

Wait, there’s any good reason not to let the fiscally irresponsible Bush tax cuts not to expire? (Link.)

Is major league baseball socialized? Or just the recipient of gratuitous corporate welfare? (Link.)
