Life is hard. After all, it kills you. — Katharine Hepburn
Who lost Election 2010? We did, America did.
I remember and will; too bad too few of my fellow Americans did:
So there’s going to be a lot of ink expended over the next couple of weeks trying to figure out how this happened, as if it’s a goddamn mystery. This economy blows goats, and instead of being out there every day yelling HEY WE TRIED TO FIX IT THOSE FUCKERS WOULDN’T LET US ALSO BUSH BAILED OUT THE BANKS NOT US, Democrats pretty much figured the midterms were gonna be a bloodbath and hunkered down and hoped it wouldn’t hit them too hard. Because that works. That always works.
Here’s the problem, you gutless fucks. You had majorities. And I KNOW, okay, but all America sees is that you had majorities and you wasted them. Because that’s what the GOP told them, and you said, “buh buh buh” and couldn’t point to anything you did right, not even with the unwashed hippies holding your arm up for you. You had majorities, and you had Harry Reid, refusing to be mean to Republicans by shoving stuff through. You had majorities, and you had Barack Obama acting like he was already an ex-president and could be gracious and social with these pricks. You had majorities, used them to do some stuff, and then sat back and acted like we should be grateful when we can fucking count.
We can fucking count, out here. We know what 51 means. We know what 257 means. We’re not morons. And all the procedural whatsit you argue today, about ConservaDems and Blue Dogs, doesn’t mean shit. You had it, and we worked hard to give it to you, and we see you calling things impossible which are just very hard, and we get fucking annoyed, because we don’t get to get away with that shit. Not at our jobs and not in our lives.
Now, I’m not excusing the Party of I Hate You or these teabagging excuses for human beings who think education is vaguely homosexual in some sinister way, but I am saying that the lesson we’re all going to take away from this is that America just isn’t a Democratic nation and we should all tack to the right and us hippies should just die in a fire already, which is bullshit. The lesson we should take away from this is that America doesn’t like pussies, doesn’t like whiners and it sure as fuck doesn’t like parties that pretend to be able to do less than they can do just because they don’t want to work that hard or have Chris Matthews call them mean.
You had majorities. You had power and you told us you were powerless. Why would anyone reward that with more power? Why would anyone think that’s a good idea?
Assholes: Bank of America. Make that “lying assholes“.
Think about this:
Personally, I have no issue with Olbermann being suspended for a couple of weeks without pay. It bothers me that any sort of political journalist is contributing to a candidate. So on that point, I disagree with Taibbi — who is dead on as to the larger picture: Modern American political journalism is pretty much completely bankrupt and, yes, Olbermann’s Fail is relatively minor. Meanwhile, apparently NBC missed MSNBC “pundit” Pat Buchanan’s numerous contributions. And their host, Joe Scarborough. Where’s the indefinite suspension? I’m sure the election results was not a factor is selective punishment….
Asshole: Glib Peggy Noonan: former Raygun speechwriter doesn’t like President Palin? Well, her guy was himself grossly underestimated, perceived as a mere speaker and no more — and went on to get elected president and then send America on the road to its present state of ruin.
Doomed! In a healthy society, a balance could be reached between helping deserving homeowners and foreclosing on those who should be foreclosed. In a society where Big Business must get that very last penny regardless of the cost to society, sane policies are impossible.
Doomed! “Grand Theft Home“.
You know this is a Republican wet dream:
Once, she was hot, and briefly Mrs. Ernest Borginine. Her rep hasn’t quite aged well…:
