GOP clowns

Just a quick post to finish out the week. God bless those Republicans, doing all they can to keep us laughing through the long weekend.

Everybody loves Dick!

Big Dick Cheney, that is. (Now, now...what did you think I meant?)

"I'm not out to win any popularity contests."
Big Dick's popularity is soaring right now. A new CNN poll shows that his favorability rating is sitting at 37%!

Well, okay. So maybe that's not going to land him on the cover of People magazine. But for Dick, that is sky-high.

Congratulations, Dick.

GOP shrieks "Socialism"

The Republican National Committee approved a resolution yesterday, stating that the Democrats are "pushing our country towards socialism and government control." A little wordy, don't you think? The GOP base generally has trouble processing anything that doesn't fit on a bumper sticker.

The original proposal was to call on Democrats to "rename themselves the Democrat Socialist Party."

"What up, dawg?"
Personally, I think the original was funnier. But, then again, I'm all for raising the level of dialog (snarky comments herein notwithstanding).

Watch out, Democrats! This is a brand new Republican party. Under Michael Steele's brilliant leadership, who knows what they'll come up with next?

Rush passes the baton

In an apparent fit of pique, Rush Limbaugh yesterday announced that he was retiring as the "titular head of the Republican Party," and tried to hand off the booby prize to Colin Powell.

What do you want to bet that Colin won't be sending Rush a thank you card?

My Memorial Day mini-vacation starts tomorrow, so I'll see you all next week. Have a great weekend!

I'm really sick of listening to the GOP shriek "socialism".

Socialism = a chicken in every pot

Corporatism/Fascism = no robber baron left behind

Socialism my foot. I still have to buy my own chicken. Jr. gave trillions to Goldman Sachs, AIG, JP Morgan, Morgan Stanley, Citi Bank, US Bancorp, GM, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, Chrysler, and the rest.

Hey GOP, either call this bull what it really is, or shut the hell up!
