100 People Who Are Screwing Up America (And Al Franken Is #37)
I was just taking a quick stroll down memory lane and wanted to point out something. As the wheels keep coming off the Bush Administration, just remember who the crazy nutjobs on the right wanted to blame. But if anyone can find a way to link Michael Moore, Barbra Streisand, George Clooney, and the Dixie Chicks to the mess that is Iraq, Katrina, Portgate, etc., grab some wool -- cause you are a spinning machine.

2. Last summer,
at Casey's Gas Station here in SW Missouri, I was overhearing a couple guys talk about who's fault it was, about the high prices of gasoline...their answer, the niggers, and spics...so, the RW Spin Doctors dont' have to spin much, to satisfy their base...sad to say.

3. People KNOW who's screwing up America to the tune of a 34% approval.
The schmuck who wrote that horseshit book is just in time to make himself look like a braying jackass.

Good for him.

7. Goldberg is a hack, but that's old news...
I think we should compile our own list of "100 People Who Are Screwing Up America"--might be fun.

I'll start:

1) George W. Bush
2) Dick Cheney
3) Karl Rove
4) Condi Rice
5) Donald Rumsfeld
6) Alberto Gonzales

Ugh, it's too easy...

7) Rush Limbaugh
8) Sean Hannity (and let's throw in Colmes for good measure, he's more or less useless)
9) Bill O'Reilly
10) Ann Coulter (ick)

Hmm...

11) Tom Delay
12) Pat Robertson
13) James Dobson
14) Dennis Hastert
15) Bill Frist
16) Katherine Harris

Waaaaaay too easy...

17) Jeb Bush
18) Mommy n' Sweetie-Pie-Coo-Coo Bush for spawning the others
19) Kenneth Lay
20) Rupert Murdoch
21) Richard Mellon-Scaife

Okay, I am stopping, I'll end up with 500 before I can get to sleep...

15. Agreed
Edited on Wed Mar-01-06 02:20 AM by libhill
Carnegie and his ilk gave these ass hats their inspiration. Nothing like billionaire industrialists living the life of Riley, while the rest of us work 16 hour days for a dollar a week. J.B. Bigbucks wants an honest day fer an honest dollar, ya know.
