Make New Friends, But Keep the Old

I’m thinking of sending a Christmas card to the RNC.

Seriously.

The Contrarian always said that Limbaugh sent a card to the Clinton’s each year. After all, they supplied him for years with hours of material.

Well, the GOP never stops giving. When one buffoon bites the dust, another rises from the ashes of stupid glue to replace them. Sometimes even doing the deceased one, one better.

It seems only years, months, days ago, since we lost our Herm Cain. And who can forget the Sarah? Oh and we must look far, far back to the protozoan days to recall the likes of Sharron Angle and Christine McDonnell.

Happily, some of our favs pop up out of their burrows now and again, to remind us just how much we have lost.

Barbara Walters has, for the last millennium or so, had a year-end collection of the 10 most available, lazy, shockingly stupid, fascinating people of the year. I have long since stopped caring and don’t watch.

But I will this year.

Herm is one of them! And a peek at the interview, leaves nothing to doubt–it will be worth the watch. Herm was asked if he were in some alternate universe, what cabinet post he would like. His answer? Oh I will not spoil it for ya, but it caused the “I’ve seen everything” Walters, to blanch with a “WHAT???”

And then there was our witchy-poo Christine. Now I been wondering how that girl was doin’. I worry about how she pays the rent these days. But somebody thought her opinion was of value. I kid you not. So, anyway, Mittens is clapping his um, mitts together, cuz she likes him, for his “steady, calm and consistent adherence to conservative ideals.” Until it was pointed out to her, that one of the complaints about old Mittens is that he has been wildly inconsistent when it comes to a lot of important issues. To which the Poo replied, “that is what I like about him, his flexibility!”  Oh yes, you can’t write copy like that folks. It’s a gift to have such GOP friends as these.

Just to keep up the hilarity, you recall that has been, Ricky Perry has cut an ad in Iowa that says all kinds of insulting things about gays–mostly that it is a horror that they are allowed to serve openly in the military, and he will put a stop to that by stomping his foot three times, when he is given the orb of Presidency.

Well, I have no clue if it’s true, and frankly, I’m inclined to doubt it, but heck, he IS a Republican after all, and therefore prone to speaking out of multiple sides of one mouth. At least one politico in TEX-ASS suggests that Perry, while not gay himself, surely appreciated the extra delights that one might enjoy at the hands of someone of one’s own sex. Just sayin’.

And who doesn’t miss the word-salad that was our Sarah. I wonder if Todd has an eye unblackened these days. No doubt Moosilla is throwing everything in sight. “I coulda been a contenda!” I could have been flav of the week! And I woulda kept it, I tell ya! I could be queen of the country and holder of the 4th Order of Sceptre. They could be playin’ ‘Hail to the Chieftess” right now!” , I heard her exclaim as she drove out of sight.

Now we return to normal Republican stupidity.

Such as: Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) introduced this amendment to an already stupid bill about Iran:

No person employed with the United States Government may contact in an official or unofficial capacity any person that…is an agent, instrumentality, or official of, is affiliated with, or is serving as a representative of the Government of Iran, and… presents a threat to the United States or is affiliated with terrorist organizations.

And, if that don’t work, stick your head in the sand and babble.

Geez are these folks just plain uneducable? I doubt that the collective IQ of House Republicans reaches 75 on a good day.

Oh and did you get this little faux pas from Fox? Or was it an oops at all? Foxy (we impersonate a news operation) Noise likes to play fast and loose with facts all the time. Are they simply registering their opinion here?

Once again, we here in Iowa are forced to take the walk of shame.

Yes, Love Boat aside, we confess, we harbor another ignorant oafish brain-dead, slithering excuse for DNA–one Fred Grandy, once the beloved if stupid purser on Love Boat, and long ago, ex-Congressman, and recent fired radio blabberer, and all-around Islamic phobia crazy person, has endorsed the Newtster.

I hang my head and accept your vilification.  (Hey Iowa GOP! You could go a long way to resurrecting yourself by just saying “none of the above” when you vote in the Iowa caucuses. Hint, Hint!

It’s nice to know that CEO’s had pay raises of between 27 and 40% last year. These praiseworthy “job creators” are still discussing how best to create those jobs, all the while the average person 50% of whom are low-income or below (and below would be BOTTOM) saw their wages increase by 2%.

Always good to know whom to thank.

Sigh…so much to talk about, so little time. Congrats, as Keith would say, you made it through another day of crap!
