You've got to give the mother-fucking shit-eating bastards credit.
Those Republican asswipes surely do know how to frame the issue. Aided by the out front wingnut media (Faux, WSJ, Moonie Times, etc), and abetted by a gutless MSM, we are talking about a half dozen fools at ACORN (right wing code for n*****s). Furthermore, the spineless Democrats (excluding Jimmy Carter) are refusing to even acknowledge that many of the Teabaggers' signs, and most of their rhetorical flourishes are explicitly racist.
I hate those shitstains with every fiber of my being, but I'll be fucked if they're not good at what they do.

1. (shrug) DUers are on their side as well. So the end result isn't surprising.

3. They have it easier, though, since they have simple minds
And they reduce everything to simplistic absurdity.

4. Please do not offend my little dog, Yuuko,
who enjoys the occasional "almond rocha" out of the cat box, by calling these low-lifes "shit eaters."

Yuuko thanks you for your consideration.

7. How cute is Yuuko!
I'd say give him a kiss for me, but knowing where that mouth has been...uh, maybe not! A serious hug would work, though!

9. NO - The fascists HAD TO BUY control of most broadcast media in the 80s and 90s to pull it off.

If they hadn't done it the GOP would never have become the majority ANYTHING.

15. And at the moment, the new House Ethics Office is co-chaired
by an ex-CIA hitman.

Congress' New Watchmen

TAP talks with David Skaggs and Porter Goss, the Democratic and Republican co-chairs of the newly formed Office of Congressional Ethics.

Daniel Strauss | August 7, 2008 | web only
Former Reps. David Skaggs and Porter Goss were recently named co-chairs of the new Office of Congressional Ethics by House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi and House Minority Leader John Boehner. The office is meant to act as a way for private citizens to express complaints about the House to congressional members. The OCE is not planned to have subpoena power and will only serve to review complaints and forward them to the House Ethics Committee if it deems it necessary. TAP interviewed the co-chairs about their new jobs in the OCE.

Before his recent appointment to the OCE, David Skaggs headed Colorado's Department of Higher Education. Porter Goss started a national security consulting company and was director of the CIA before President Bush replaced him with Gen. Michael V. Hayden amid allegations of corruption by subordinates and mismanagement. Other members of the newly created office include former Reps. Yvonne Brathwaite Burke and Karan English, former House Chief Administrator Jay Eagan, and Allison Hayward, former chief of staff to Bradley Smith, a commissioner of the Federal Election Commission. Former Reps. Abner Mikva and Bill Frenzel are alternate board members.

28. Interesting factoid, EFerrari. I didn't realize Porter Goss was one of the henchmen.
Thanks for the info.

23. These motherf***ers are MASTERS at turning anything into a SCANDAL
Edited on Thu Sep-17-09 06:03 PM by Julius Civitatus
I am looking at the events taking place since August in complete amazement. Every week they turn anything, ANYTHING, into a scandal of massive proportions. And of course we can always count on the MSM to give them ample coverage:

- Obama wants to bring universal healthcare -->> becomes Dems will kill grandma with "death panels"!!!
- Obama appoints left wing advisers -->> becomes Obama fills cabinet with communists (Van Jones, others).
- Obama appoints advisers and so-called "czars" (like any president before him) -->> becomes Obama must be a "communist" because he's appointing "czars" (it sounds Russian and evil... and never mind the dozens of previous czars since Nixon).

The Democrats better step up to this nasty Republican game. It's only been 9 months since Obama was inaugurated and the "scandal" game has started in full force.

26. Considering that our media...
has been reduced to nothing more than opinionated mouthpieces you might be onto something. There is no liberal media. It's a myth. It was started ironically by Rush Limbaugh - the first mouthpiece. It's like Stalin said - the more people believe in a lie the more it becomes a fact. And the GOP has taken that to heart - it's how they *COUGH* used *COUGH* to win .
