WWRKD?


Sitch: My boyfriend announces an Eight Billion Dollar guarantee for a nuclear power plant in Georgia.
Reax: It is good all around and everyone agrees that it is.

Sitch: He announces it using a bipartisan approach.
Reax: It is good all around and everyone agrees that it is.

Uhh, well, yeppers on everything ‘cept the ‘Obama’ part … at least for that state’s two GOP senatewhores.

Sens. Johnny Isakson and Saxby Chambliss (R-etards, GA) issued a seven-paragraph, 392-word joint statement, lauding the initiative.
It was good all around and they both agreed that it was.

But nowhere in that seven-paragraph, 392-word statement did they ever use the words “president,” “Obama,” and/or “White House”.

Jay Bookman of the AJC surmises the two “just couldn’t bring themselves” to agree with Obama by name.

How old are we?

Welcome back! Now get to work!


As Congress prepares to return to work after the holiday break, I’m curious to see what the Senate does with the health care reform bill debate.

And by curious I mean I hope they don’t freefall into a stagnant mess of rhetoric, rumor and ridiculousness but actually and frealz engage in the kind of serious debate that can move this issue toward a meaningful conclusion for everyone.

HAHAHAHAHA!!!
Oh, I know … très amusant but hey, stranger things could happen, right?
I mean, it could happen in a half-life alternate universe where elected officials actually do the work of the job they were chosen to do, right?

Rare photo!! Bipartisanship in action!!



Senate Finance Committee Chairman Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., left, shakes hands with committee member Sen. Olympia Snowe, R-Maine after a committee vote on the health care reform bill today.

It’s NOT just a myth!

Way to go, Olympia Snowe!

You go girl!


<——- Joan Bray gets my vote for this week’s ‘Bitchslappiest Badass In All Of Creation’ award PLUS ten trillion ‘Attagirls’ for giving a big ol’ verbal backhand to a bunch of Missouri buffoons.

See, on one side, there are these folks (Retardlicans, old white men and general religious whackjobs) who can’t get over the fact that waaaayyyy back in 1973 a bunch of people we call the United States Supreme Court put their heads together (well 7 of the 9, anyway) and decided that it was probably a good idea for women to have the last word on what happens with their vajayjays when it comes to having baybays and so they legalized that shit 20 says to Sunday.

On the other side, there’s this other group of folks (everyone else) who believe the Supremes’ decision was a slammin’ piece of justice.

Joan Bray is in that group.

bitch_slap-13115And this week, during debate on Missouri’s [now passed] ‘compromise’ abortion legislation, the University City Democrat got fired up and unleashed some furious speechification on her Senate brethren, basically calling bullshit on the blatant sexism behind abortion bills year after year and, at one point, lambasting lawmakers who are “pro-life” with their wives and “pro-choice” with their girlfriends.
::: BOO-YA!! Suckit hypocrites! :::

At the time she said it, none of the peens on the Senate floor had the cajones to respond … but 12 hours later Republican Senator Jack Goodman labeled her comments “highly offensive” and “slanderous.”
::: Ooo – way harsh, Jackster! :::

So what, exactly, did she say that was sooooo outrageous?!?

Behold the glory of articulate outrage!

“After multiple years on this issue, I’m sick of it. I’m totally sick of it.

I’m sick of women being treated like they are so stupid that they can’t make their own decisions regarding their reproductive rights and their bodies.

I’m sick of women having no options, and being coerced to give birth.

I’m sick of a bunch of men around here, year after year after year, piling up restriction after restriction after restriction on women who found themselves in a very unhappy, unpleasant circumstance of an unwanted pregnancy.

Missouri has the most restrictive abortion laws in the country and, as a result, Missouri’s women are put in danger when they finally do ever get to have an abortion — they’re later and they’re tougher abortions to have because there are so many barriers to Missouri women getting to have a safe and legal abortion.

I am sick of the disrespect for women who come to the Capitol defending a woman’s legal right to choose an abortion.

I am sick that they’re being treated dismissively and rudely.

I’m sick of the ethic around here that men are pro-life for their wives and pro-choice for their girlfriends.

I’m sick of the failure to take steps that would, in fact, reduce the number of unwanted pregnancies, through sex education, contraception, family planning and emergency contraception.

No man in this body will ever have an unwanted pregnancy.

But, mark my word, your daughters, your wives, your sisters, your granddaughters, your nieces will.

And your actions here tonight will disrespect and diminish them.”

Joan? Girlfriend??
I SO LOVE YOU RIGHT NOW!!!
