New GOP Mantra: Reality Bites Surrealism Rocks!

What a week for the right wing meltdown crowd. A new national poll by Public Policy Polling shows that a majority of republicans feel ACORN stole the 2008 election for Barack Obama. DETAILS HERE ON TALKINGPOINTSMEMO.COM

And the far right wing news site Newsmax(which in a totally honest world would be known as Newsmin actually Newsnon) reported a few days back that Sarah Palin told them shes a big fan of Fox Host Glenn Paranoia Strikes Deep Beck and chuckled a bit while saying she would consider him as a vice presidential running mate if she were to get the republican presidential nomination in 2012.

Two Bit Manchild?

Famous chickenhawk/war supporter Rush Limbaugh, appearing on one of those stupid Fox News sunday morning talking head shows, again called Barack Obama a man-child.

Speaking of manly behavior, did you know Rush dodged the draft due to having an anal cyst? Liberal Talk Host Randi Rhodes said she had the same thing an anal cyst. However, she had outpatient surgery to have it removed and then went on to proudly serve in the military.

BTW, Two Bit Manchild is the title of a non-chart busting single by Neil Diamond from 1968:

The News Pauper: Obama is a Great Politician

By W.B. Dunne

One of the main things the News Pauper enjoys most about the Obama administration is the way that they seem to espouse some of the policy of the previous administration. This puts the bad guys in a very bad place. The same parties that have been supportive of the folly of the last administration are going to be fighting tooth and nail against those powers in the hands of the new one. He is underscoring in loud tones the hypocrisy of these people, as well as exposing the shortsightedness of the policy.

Keep up the good work, Barack.

This has been quite a year for the News Pauper. Seeing the dreaded Neocons put down like the rabid animals they are was the kicker, and it seems each day brings another humiliation for those responsible for the troubles we find ourselves in today. I love the holy rollers being forced to reckon with the kind of reprobates theyve elected, demonstrated most perfectly by the disappearing act of South Carolinas Mark Sanford. If he resigns as governor, we win. If he does not resign, we win again. Hell be held up as he should be as the epitome of the double standard of justice and the moral bankruptcy of the GOP in general. I love seeing the GOP and the political right wing of our system in this terrible fix, and I look forward every day to what will crop up next in this celebration of decay and retribution.

Today’s Quote: I Don’t Know But What He’s Right

Unfortunately, even with Obama as president, many Democrats still cower when the crazy Republicans crack the whip or line up when the corporations send in the lobbyists to hand out money. Although I don’t completely agree with Maher’s ideas on gun control, I’m onboard for the rest of his litany.

“Shouldn’t there be one party that unambiguously supports cutting the military budget, a party that is straight up in favor of gun control, gay marriage, higher taxes on the rich, universal health care, legalizing pot, and steep direct taxing of polluters? …What we need is an actual progressive party to represent the millions of Americans who aren’t being served by the Democrats, because bottom line: Democrats are the new Republicans.”
— Bill Maher, “Democrats Have Moved to the Right and the Right Has Moved Into a Mental Hospital,” Huffington Post, June 21, 2009.
