I saw this picture on one of the first blogs in my reader this morning, and just had to have it. I’m seriously thinking of starting a collection of great Cheney pics like this. I mean, they will be worth something someday!
Mostly I can’t get over that the funniest thing I can think of these days is the GOP. No swine flu, no economic ups and downs, no handshakes with Chavez for me! I’ve waited eight long years, and I am just enjoying this too much to stop.
I mean, really, how inept can a bunch of so-called brilliant lights be? All their bulbs have dimmed to flickering softly in the twilight. Yesterday I even posited that Satan might be seriously at work here, since it’s hard to imagine how they could deliberately be this bad.
They being the GOP. Polling last week confirmed the obvious, only 21% of folks self-proclaim themselves as Republican. Perhaps the number is larger of course, many may just be too embarrassed to admit their affiliation. Still.
Michael Tomasky posits that this works out to about 46 millions of persons. Now Rush Limbaugh’s listening public appears to be around 25 million. That means that nearly half of all Republicans are listening to Rush. Does this explain the problem?
I read one blog that suggested that Mr. Cheney should have run for President in 2008. You immediately think, what kind of wingnut is this? But then you see the sense of it. He would have lost in a landslide and perhaps then the rank and file would have been shaken from their right wing lethargy an comes to their senses.
I read another blog yesterday that suggested the Foxy News was gaining rather handily in watchership, while CNN was losing and MSNBC was gaining a bit. That seemed dreary and scary to the writer of the post. I would have agreed but for something I know personally.
We watch Foxy more than ever now. Not for news of course, but as a excellent gauge of how well the Democrats are actually doing. The more Fox rants, the better the left is faring. And nothing on earth is more fun says the Contrarian than to watch Sean and Bill and Glenn sputter and shake as even their hand picked experts disagree with them. They literally tie themselves in knots trying to make everything a disaster for Obama.
Did you hear by the way, that he uses a teleprompter? Alot? I mean the audacity of actually wanting to say exacting what one means! That’s a true shock to the system I tell ya. After eight long years of stupid remarks by his dopeness “The Decider,” a President who actually can speak English!
You can have even more fun at forums. I don’t bother replying to any, but I love to read the topics. Did you know that (careful now, sit down for this one) Obama actually invited gay couples and their kids to the Easter Egg hunt! Yes he did. Buried down at the bottom of the rant was, “well to be fair, so did Bush, but he hated it, and just did it to stave off the usual left wing media.”
You always hear the phrase, more fun than shooting monkeys in a barrel. And you might liken watching the self destruction of the GOP as this. However, I’d advise against it. I’ve investigated this phrase and am having difficulty finding shooting monkeys fun, (we don’t want them as mad at us as swine are now do we?), nor why it would be fun to shoot them in barrels. I mean how big a barrel, and how does that enhance my enjoyment? Perhaps Cheney should be consulted on this, since he likes shooting old men quail who are hand stocked in the grass around him. He may be able to explain the fascination.
Anyway, the media is now fast on the track of asking the GOP, and more particularly those particular Rethugs who insisted on removing money for pandemic preparedness from the stimulus bill. I mean talk about being snake bit. Again, I don’t know why that comparison works, but it’s the kind of thing you always hear when coincidences like that turn up as synchronicity.
Are you seeing this pattern developing. All these phrases we use to describe events are tied to animals. This has got to have something to do with why we get all our diseases from critters. I mean it can’t be a coincidence. Think of cart before the horse, raining cats and dogs, high as an elephant’s eye, ornery as pole cat, sly as a fox.
You can write a billion more without breaking a sweat. I guess they don’t like it. Perhaps they have their own list of phrases, smelly as a human digging a sewer, sad as a stood up bride with droopy flowers, blind as a kid with coke bottle glasses. Who knows what our dogs and cats are saying behind our backs, snickering and all.
Well, this was about the GOP, and has now morphed. It’s not my fault. When you talk about the GOP, you just naturally develop a certain loss of brain function. I can understand why they are imploding a lot better now. I need some fresh air to clear my head and return to a functional IQ.
