Republicans—what a bunch of idiots. Now they are sending teabags to Congress and the White House. They are urging everyone to "teabag" the White House. Apparently they don't know that "teabagging" is a sexual slang word for an activity which involves the only part of a man's physique which could be likened to a teabag. I won't say anything about the activity, except that you wouldn't want your partner to sneeze in the midst of it. One assumes these clowns don't know about the double entendre. One hopes so, because if they do know, then they are not only being stupid, but meretricious and disrespectful to the office of the presidency.
It was great fun watching Rachel Maddow report on this last night. She clearly knows what it means and it was all she could do to get through the report without breaking down in laughter.
But what else can you expect from this bunch of losers? The Repubes have not come up with a single viable idea to counter the force of the Obamarama. All they can do is hold up business and look petulant.
Speaking of looking petulant, have you looked hard at Sen. Mitch McConnell's face when he is talking? It's hard I know, but try. All the years of weaseling, compromise, putting the country second for the sake of his party and ideology, the corruption of his reasoning abilities—it is written on his face. It shows, it shows. It shows that deep inside he knows the Repubes are not behaving well, are in fact being hurtful to the country they profess to love.
All the lies, the dissembling. At least he is not a looney tunes like the Bachman woman from Minnesota. I'm not even going to get started on her. She's certifiable and one should be gentle with the mentally damaged.
In the meantime, Obama is going around the world, being a real statesman and not an embarrassment like someone else recently in his office. it's so nice to once again have a president I can stand to listen to.
And another 600,000 people showed up at your local state employment bureau office this month. These kinds of figures do not give one a lot of confidence in a job search. After a certain point one loses all concern, and the whole situaion becomes laughable. I'm going to take what little money I have and buy a lot of shipping crates, like for large appliances. I can see a need arising. People are going to need someplace to live, and I want in on the ground floor, so to speak.
Okay, I'm done.
Go do something useful.
