Indeed.

You just need to play some music and scroll a list of the things Repugs have blocked (with a note it had to be edited for time).... then ask "Is this how they will govern?"

4. Republicans told the victims of the bp disaster go screw yourselves
We do no give a damn about you. We need our payments from big oil so we can get elected again
and have a better life than most Americans.
Lost your job....... too bad
Going to lose your house..... too bad
Going to get sick from the toxins .... too bad

See, we are republicans and we can only worry about ourselves.
To hell with the American people.

8. No shit.
They are hiding malfeasance on a massive scale. All this happened with the blessing of Filthy Dick Cheney. That's why he has been incommunicado.

11. Yes

Starry, starry night
Paint your palette blue and gray
Look out on a summer's day
With eyes that know the darkness in my soul

Shadows on the hills
Sketch the trees and the daffodils
Catch the breeze and the winter chills
In colors on the snowy linen land

Now, I understand, what you tried to say to me
And how you suffered for your sanity
And how you tried to set them free
They would not listen, they did not know how
Perhaps they'll listen now

Starry, starry night
Flaming flowers that brightly blaze
Swirling clouds in violet haze
Reflect in Vincent's eyes of china blue

Colors changing hue
Morning fields of amber grain
Weathered faces lined in pain
Are soothed beneath the artist's loving hand

Now, I understand, what you tried to say to me
And how you suffered for your sanity
And how you tried to set them free
They would not listen, they did not know how
Perhaps they'll listen now

For they could not love you
But still your love was true
And when no hope was left inside
On that starry, starry night

You took your life as lovers often do
But I could have told you, Vincent
This world was never meant for one
As beautiful as you

Starry, starry night
Portraits hung in empty halls
Frame less heads on nameless walls
With eyes that watch the world and can't forget

Like the strangers that you've met
The ragged men in ragged clothes
The silver thorn of bloody rose
Lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow

Now, I think I know what you tried to say to me
And how you suffered for your sanity
And how you tried to set them free
They would not listen, they're not listening still
Perhaps they never will
