Sunday Morning Coffee (or Tea) – 26

Just a few noteworthy political meteorites and comments thereon that have been careening around the galaxy this past week.

BREAKING NEWS: This past week during an on-air radio broadcast that he shared with crazy  Michele Bachmann (Tea Party) MN, Arlen Specter (D) PA was repeatedly interrupted by the nutcase until he found it necessary to put her in her place. Politico.com reports that Bachmann first laid out her agenda — cutting taxes and killing President Obama’s health reform bill — at considerable length. When Arlen Specter tried to counter, Bachmann, darling of the Tea Party movement, kept on talking, which didn’t sit well with the one-time Philadelphia DA, who is a stickler for politeness and protocol. “I’m going to treat you like a lady,” Mr. Specter shot back. “Now act like one.” When Bachmann continued to interrupt him on at least two more occasions, Specter again told her to “act like a lady” each time. Bachmann seems to be suffering from a case of “Once, Twice, Three times not a lady”!

THIS JUST IN: John Edwards is actually the father of his mistress’ baby? Wow, we never saw that one coming!

BREAKING NEWS: Last Thursday, the five conservative, activist U.S.  Supreme Court Justices effectively transferred the power of electing politicians from the people of the United States to corporations (including foreign controlled domestic corporations). In the case of Citizens United v. Federal Elections Commission the Supreme Court effectively wiped out corporate campaign spending limits and now corporations can open their almost limitless coffers to influence elections throughout the United States. The net result is that business friendly Republican candidates will benefit while Democratic party candidates will be penalized. It will be interesting to see how the Tea-Baggers react to the decision. After all, the Tea Party prides itself on returning power to the people and its members are steadfast in their opposition to recent corporate bailouts. Consequently, common sense would dictate that the Tea-Baggers would be furious at the decision. The problem is that the Tea-Baggers in general are uneducated, gun-toting dolts and probably cannot read well enough to understand the implications of the decision. Your next President may be brought to you by the generosity of Sony Corporation.

THIS JUST IN: This week’s edition of “This Guy Gets Creepier Every Day” features newly elected Massachusetts Republican Senator Scott Brown. First he posed nude for a Cosmopolitan magazine centerfold. Then, at his election victory party he pimped out his daughters by announcing that they are both available. Now a strange photo of Brown and his daughters has surfaced in which Scott leeringly smiles while hugging his teeny-weeny-bikini clad daughters. Maybe it is just me, but every time I am exposed to Scott Brown, I feel the need to take a shower thereafter.

BREAKING NEWS: “RIP” Air America Radio. We are sad to announce that the progressive radio network filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection last Thursday and ceased all live broadcasting. Let’s hope that another stronger voice for progressive politics will be born in the near future.

THIS JUST IN: The Tea Party movement suffered another embarrassment last week. Marine Sgt. Charles Dyer a/k/a “July4Patriot” and outspoken member of the “Oath Keepers” bloc of the Tea Party movement has been arrested on charges of rape of a child and forced sodomy. Additionally during the search of his home, authorities uncovered several firearms and a grenade launcher. This is just another example of a Tea-Bagger being a dangerous lunatic.

BREAKING NEWS: This week’s edition of “Don’t Make Me Get My Irish Up” features me. My anger is directed at the Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kansas and its God Hates Ireland Website. The Irish nation has recently passed laws which prohibit discrimination based upon sexual preference. Here is what the Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kansas had to say about that,

Ireland has absolutely failed its duty to God. It has been wholly given over to the idea that it is okay to be a filthy fag. They have allowed their fags to establish themselves at every level of society, especially in the government. A law called “An Act to Prohibit Incitement to Hatred on Account of Sexual Orientation” has been enacted by the wicked lawmakers in Ireland to eliminate any true gospel preaching there.

How’s that for a big heaping dose of loving Christianity? Pat Robertson would feel right at home with this group of haters.

THIS JUST IN: For those of you that are interested in removing moon-bat crazy Michele Bachmann from office, here are a couple of blogs that you might want to take a look at;

Dump Bachmann, and Michelle Bachmann for President…of Crazy

BREAKING NEWS: The website CultureMap.com has an interesting article about a potential feud between Fox News’ two most outlandishly foolish pundits. They anticipate a turf war between Glenn “My Crying Eyes” Beck and Sarah “My Winking Eyes” Palin.

Reports are surfacing that Glenn Beck is concerned he might be pushed out of his coveted time slot with Fox News and replaced by former Alaska Governor and GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

There doesn’t seem to be any love lost between these two political media heavy weights. Beck has already predicted that Palin won’t get the Republican nomination in 2012. “I’ve decided that Sarah Palin cannot be president of the United States until she can eviscerate somebody like you,” Beck told Bill O’Reilly in a recent Fox News broadcast. “She’s playing defense right now, and I’m not convinced she wants to be president.” Beck has not been too kind towards Palin since she joined Fox News. “I’ve never met anybody with shields up more than Sarah Palin,” he said.

Meanwhile, Palin is linked with every new Republican star that wins an election. Blogs are now teaming her with Scott Brown as a potential vice presidential pick if she wins the nomination, even though that’s a long way off. Brown won Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat in Massachusetts in an upset of epic proportions. There are even suggestions Beck and Palin could battle it out over who becomes the de facto leader of the surging “Tea Party”  expected to play a crucial role in this fall’s elections.

As usual, please click on the song link below to familiarize yourelves with the tune and to have more fun singing along with today’s double helping of song parodies. One for Glenn Beck and one for Sarah Palin. Please enjoy.

HE’S CRAZY

(sung to the Patsy Cline song “Crazy”)

Crazy
Glenn Beck is a demented phony
He’s crazy
Marbles? He’s missing a few

We knew
He was one of Bellevue’s “Most Wanted”
And that someday
He’d make an asylum debut

Sorry
Beck’s on a mental safari
Wondrin’
How did he go so koo-koo

Oh, crazy
Glenn’s crazy and back on the home brew
There’s no use denyin’
Beck can’t stop cryin’
Glenn Beck’s crazy
And stupid too

Crazy
We’re not sure that Beck’s not sniffing glue
It seems like he’s flyin’
We’re not just implyin’
Glenn Beck’s crazy
We know it’s true

CRAZY

(sung to the Patsy Cline song “Crazy”)

Crazy
Palin is chock-full of baloney
She’s crazy
Crazy and without a clue

We knew
She’s psychologically haunted
And that someday
She’d make her asylum debut

Sorry
She could be a guest on Maury
Wondrin’
How did she go so koo-koo

Oh, crazy
As crazy as her husband, First Dude
There’s no use denyin’
Cheatin’ and lyin’
Sarah’s crazy
We know it’s true

Crazy
We’re not sure if Palin’s sniffing glue
It seems like she’s flyin’
We’re not just implyin’
Sarah’s crazy
We know it’s true

  1. Oh, Lynnrockets…. Patsy!??? I’m not so sure she’d be one to hold back from telling Mrs. Palin exactly what she thought of her, too, also. And I’d have paid to see it!

    Love Patsy. I sing her in the shower… perhaps I’ll need to learn the new lyrics!

    Now that I think of it, a lot of Patsy’s songs could be transliterated for Mrs. Palin…they are mostly about losing out or being forlorn or some other shade of upsetness. :D

  2. Dueling banjos of crazy. Hope they duel until they’re both gone. Hey, if the National Enquirer can out Edwards, someone can certainly out $P.

  3. “Dueling banjos of crazy”, I like it!

  4. A crazy two-fer … Beck & Palin. Sarah could try out for a role as Glenn Beck’s sidekick. Don’t know what she’d so … wink everytime he cries?

  5. Alien vs Predator

    It was very mean spirited on Beck’s part-definitely not a hoot- to predict that Palin wouldn’t get the Republican nomination in 2012.
    She’s just trying to make a buck, just like him. That’s capitalism!

    Beck needn’t worry about being replaced by Palin: her prattle about plugging in those commonsense conservative values would barely be enough to make it through one show. She doesn’t have the “gravitas” to be a Pox pundit! Can she even cry on cue?

  6. Lordy, that thing that Westboro Baptist Church said about Ireland – now that’s ‘Crazy.’ And are they in for a big surprise. Sometimes children can see reality clearer than we “adults.” There is an inevitable shift toward acceptance of gays and same-sex marriage. The writing is on the wall:

    “In 1993, few Americans had heard of same-sex marriage. Now some forty per cent of Americans support marriage for gay couples, and more than fifty per cent support civil unions. Many more people condone gay marriage today than condoned interracial marriage at the time of Loving v. Virginia, when only twenty per cent of Americans told Gallup that they approved of it.

    Younger Americans endorse gay marriage at strikingly higher rates than older ones. According to a 2009 study underwritten by the Pew Charitable Trusts, fifty-eight per cent of Americans between the ages of eighteen and twenty-nine support gay marriage, compared to twenty-two per cent of Americans sixty-five and older. And the age divide cuts across some ideological lines as well. In a 2008 study, twenty-six per cent of white evangelicals under the age of thirty supported full marriage rights for same-sex couples, while only nine per cent of older evangelicals did.

    Patrick Egan, a political scientist at New York University, and Nathaniel Persily, a law professor at Columbia University, who together have studied public opinion on gay rights, believe that in five years a majority of Americans will favor same-sex marriage—the result of generational replacement and what Persily calls “attitude adjustment.” When people change their mind on this issue, they tend to change it toward marriage equality. The more striking conversion stories of the past couple of years conform to this pattern: Bill Clinton saying that he was “wrong” in opposing gay marriage; Dick Cheney, whose daughter Mary is a lesbian with a partner and two children, declaring that “people ought to be free to enter into any kind of union they wish”; Jerry Sanders, the Republican mayor of San Diego, explaining tearfully at a press conference that he couldn’t look his lesbian daughter and others “in the face and tell them that their relationships . . . were any less meaningful than the marriage I share with my wife.”

    Masterful job on the song lyrics, btw. I’ve already switched from ‘The Monkees’ to ‘He’s Crazy.’

    • Thanks for your comment. I always enjoy them because they are insightful and chock full of information. I agree that gay marriage is on its way to acceptence. In no way does a gay marriage have any negative effect on my marriage.

    • My parents have been married for 50 years. When people were going door to door for Prop 8, my mom answered the door and said she would live and let live. Then they asked to speak with my father who said he agreed with my mom. Then she saw the neighbor who didn’t have the guts to come talk with them directly across the street, hiding “behind” his fellow congregants. We all lost respect for him, after 44 years of being neighbors.

      KS is just weird. The smartest people I’ve met from KS all lived in NY or CA. The gene pool there keeps getting more concentrated unfortunately, so I have low expectations for KS. As though that church has any right to tell another country what to do. I know what I’d tell them, but this is a polite blog.

      • I should add that the Presbyterian church going door to door on Prop 8 was the first church I went to after being baptized in “our church” 40 miles away. They completely turned me off when I went there to Sunday school at 5. Probably the genesis of my questioning authority, so I should thank them for that. I only went back this last year for another neighbor’s funeral. This local Presbyterian church recently had a pastor/minister/priest (whoever is the head guy)embezzle hundreds of thousands from the church, causing great problems for the congregation. Maybe they should tend to their own house before picking on gays.
