Meet The New, New Deal…Worse Than The Old, New DealOctober 3rd, 2008 at 1:28 pm by Brian
UPDATED AT (*groan*), dare I say, THE BOTTOM -
What a difference a week makes. Just a few days ago, House Republicans were “unpatriotic” for not voting for an earmark-laden, pork-filled bill effectively torpedoed by the lack of votes from her own House Democrat Majority.
Add a few more slices of bacon and handfuls of pork chops to it and suddenly, House Majority Leader Pelousy is raising her bloody latexed gloves at the podium as the House prepares to ratify this legislative abortion and she’s taking credit for the “bipartisan effort to defeat Bush’s bad bill” earlier in the week.
That must have been bipartisan unpatriotism you were referring to, yes?
Does Botox cause short term memory loss?
Regardless, we’re just a few short minutes away from the passage of the House Republicans’ Spine Removal and Abdication of All Moral Authority Act of 2008.
I’d love to be surprised but Boehner has shown himself to be useless. He prayed this morning (as he does every morning) about taking $700 Billion dollars out of the hands and mouths of American taxpayers to create Chavezism-lite because doing something bad now is better than working for another week to improve a bill that is twice the cost of the Iraq War.
They’ll say “The American people demand that we act.” And that’s where they end it. The whole sentence is “The American people demand that we act – responsibly.” This is not even close.
It’s all over but the arm-breaking to pat themselves on the back and John McCain telling “my friends” how proud he is that they worked together to do the work of the American people.
Hate. You. Guys.
Soooo…you’re saying I should have held out for seven times more?
Bailout BaDonkaDonk/Friends At The Fannie: Bahney Fwank, already balls deep in the bailout, has evidently been joined to the scandal – by the Fannie no less.
I’d say to turn the hose on them but that would probably damage the economy from its glistening, phallic imagery. With friends like Fannie, who needs enemas? Of course, people will start throwing fists and elbows when it’s their ass on the line.
In light of Frank’s hyping of Fannie Mae last year, as shown in the non-consensual flogging beat down by O’Reilly, would this be considered a pump’n'dump for his humpin’ chump?
I’m afraid ethics in Congress are all that they are cracked up to be.
