Boehner, contraceptives, Republican SOS (Same Old Strategy): Sex! Sex!
What do you think is going on in the following? Boehner's first response to a proposed $825 BILLION stimulus plan is to find a reason to say the word, "contraceptives."

Contraceptives! Sex! Dirty, dirty sex! Abortion! Affairs! Monica!

The strategy never changes, and it's always going to succeed in obstructing and distracting, even when it fails to win elections. You want change? You can't cater to that party. They'll never respond rationally; all you can do is seek to peel off the six or seven half-sane senators among them. The more you play their game, the more they'll use the opening to find some bullshit for Whitewater/Monica style attacks, in which those who advocate war crimes get all righteous about some small-time, small-change bullshit and the MEDIA COMPLY.

They don't compromise. They are utterly corrupt. The only way to go forward is to slap them down for good, to use this moment to set in motion the dissolution of the Republican Party.

I'm not talking about dirty tricks, I'm not talking about revenge, but the simple demand for justice: Expose them for their real crimes, or expect many more months of them pretending to do expose bogus crimes with the Whitewater strategy. There is no third alternative. It's the war criminals in the dock, or eight more years of the same bullshit as in the Clinton era.

Investigate the Bush crimes. Expose. Prosecute. It's the pragmatic thing to do.

Reid: Stimulus Bill Will Be On Obama's Desk By Feb. 16

In a news conference just concluded following a bipartisan meeting of congressional leaders with President Obama, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said he expects that Congress will deliver a bill outlining the $825 billion economic stimulus plan ready for the president's signature by the President's Day recess, which begins on Feb. 16.

Asked if Reid expects that Republican lawmakers will try to block the spending bill, he curtly replied: "No."

Moments earlier, though, at the Republicans's news conference following the meeting, House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) said he is "concerned about some of the spending" in the bill. He specifically cited "spending hundreds of millions of dollars on contraceptives," referring to a family planning provision in the bill that would enable private clinics to disburse "emergency contraceptives" and be reimbursed with taxpayer money.

Reid also said that Peter Orszag, former head of the Congressional Budget Office and now head of Obama's budget team, vouched that 75 percent of the spending in the stimulus bill would go "directly into the economy in the first 18 months" after the bill's passage.

The Senate Finance committee will take up the bill on Tuesday.

2. Republics have filthy minds and even filthier sex habits...
and if they don't, they wish they did. In particular, the Republic obsession with gay butt-sex just creeps me the hell out.

Hey Republics, Victorian England sent a telegram and they want their sexual repression and dysfunction back - all the nasty sex toys too.

3. KO did his lead-in to Rachel's show last night by suggesting the irony of
an R named Boner wailing against contraception as part of a stimulus plan.

I thought Rachel was going to faint with embarrassment, LOL! It was hysterical!
