OK, so Rod “$enate $eat for $ale” Blahblahblahblah (pictured today above) by a unanimous vote of the Illinois state Senate is now the former governor of Illinois, but does anyone think that he’ll ever really go away?
That he’ll have a book published is a foregone conclusion; the punishment for wrongdoing in the United States of America is that you get to make big $$$ writing a book. (At least it will be legal for Blahblahblahblah to sell his book to the highest bidder…)
Let’s just hope that Blahblahblahblah doesn’t decide to go into porn…
Ted Haggard, either…
The poor Repugnicans are struggling to define their core principles.
Gee, I can help them with that. I can condense the ’Pugs’ core principle into one simple word: treason.
They stole the 2000 presidential election (via Florida and via Ohio probably the 2004 election, too) and they started the bogus Vietraq War, which has resulted in the wholly unnecessary deaths of at least 4,236 of our military personnel — and in the looting of about $600 billion of American taxpayers’ dollars thus far, most of which has gone to the pockets of war profiteers like Dick Cheney’s Halliburton.
The Repugnicans are perfectly OK with hundreds of billions of Americans’ tax dollars going to war profiteers via a bogus war — after all, they can’t just loot the U.S. treasury directly – but the Repugnicans are against spending billions of American taxpayers’ own dollars on Americans.
And the Repugnicans want to make sure that the super-rich pay as little in taxes as possible, while the common American taxpayer takes it up the ass.
The Repugnicans sold out the nation to the super-rich and the Repugnicans want to prevent the nation’s recovery from that sellout.
Yup, in a word, treason.
There, I’ve done their work for them.
If they want to add a few more words to their core principles, plutocracy, racism, misogyny, “Christo”fascism, homophobia, xenophobia, nationalism/jingoism and hypocrisy all come to mind.
Residents of Tikrit in Iraq have erected a sort of shrine to the Iraqi journalist who hurled his shoes at former “President” George W. Bush at a press conference in Baghdad last month:
I never get sick of the shoe thing.
And this is the first statue in honor of George W. Bush that I’m aware of…
