We’re Baaaaaaaaaaack. Just of few noteworthy news bits and comments thereon from this past week.
BREAKING NEWS: The U.S. Senate passed its version of a health care reform bill on Christmas Eve and this is how a typically irrational Tea-Bagger responds:
THIS JUST IN: Moonbat Minnesotan Michele Bachmann has been exposed once again. No, not pictorially thank goodness. The uber-conservative socialism hating Republican Senator that rails against all forms of health care reform and foreclosure mitigation which might impede upon the perfection of the free market has been caught with her hand in the socialist cookie jar. TruthDig.com reports that Ms. Bachmann’s family farm has collected over $ 251,973.00 in socialized government farm subsidies since 1995. Just another example of a Republican imploring citizens to “do as I say, not as I do”.
BREAKING NEWS: In this week’s edition of “I Don’t Know What The F_ _ _ I’m Talking About”, we also feature Michele Bachmann. At a Tea-Bagger rally in Washington D.C. last week, the historically challenged Republican Senator, in an attempt to whip up the crowd, compared the Tea-Bagger movement to “The Charge of the Light Brigade”. Bachmann was apparently unaware that “The Charge of the Light Brigade” was a poem written by Lord Tennyson to commemorate a moment in the 1854 Crimean War, when British officers misdirected more than 600 troops into an area known as the Valley of Death to face 25,000 Russians. There were hundreds of casualties, the British officers were disgraced, and the Russians won the day. Like Sarah Palin, did Bachmann also attend the University of Idaho?
THIS JUST IN: Media Matters For America has just awarded Fox News host Glenn Beck its “Misinformer Of The Year Award”.
When he wasn’t calling the president a racist, portraying progressive leaders as vampires who can only be stopped by “driv[ing] a stake through the heart of the bloodsuckers,” or pushing the legitimacy of seceding from the country, Beck obsessively compared Democrats in Washington to Nazis and fascists and “the early days of Adolf Hitler.” He wondered, “Is this where we’re headed,” while showing images of Hitler, Stalin, and Lenin; decoded the secret language of Marxists; and compared the government to “heroin pushers” who were “using smiley-faced fascism to grow the nanny state.”
BREAKING NEWS: In response to PolitiFact.com deeming her “death panels” comment to be the biggest lie of 2009, Sarah Palin has scoffingly posted on Facebook against “Nancy Pelosi and friends who have tried to call ‘death panels’ the ‘lie of the year.’ “. Can this former ex-quitting governor of Alaska ever get her facts straight? If she is going to counter that one of her comments has been awarded the dubious distinction of being “the biggest lie of 2009”, shouldn’t she be aware that it was PolitiFact.com that bestowed the award and not Nancy Pelosi? What a maroon!
THIS JUST IN: A CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released last Wednesday indicates that a majority of Americans, 51 percent, believe that the Democrats’ policies are good for the country. By contrast, 53 percent of people questioned in the poll say that the GOP’s polices would move the nation in the wrong direction. It is obvious that the Tea-Baggers are not as voluminous as they want everyone to think, nor are they very influential.
BREAKING NEWS: This week’s edition of “The Numbers Don’t Lie Like Sarah Palin” features the obstructionist Republican Party. We now have proof-positive that the G.O.P. is the “Party of No”. People For The American Way reports:
So far, GOP foot dragging has forced the Senate leadership to file 67 cloture petitions and forced cloture votes on 38 occasions  . Those numbers, while high, aren’t yet on pace to break the record set by the GOP in the last Congress of 139 motions filed and 112 forced votes. But what is remarkable is that, of those 38 votes forced this year, cloture was invoked 34 times.
That means a full 89% of the time, the cloture vote did nothing but delay the inevitable—a huge increase from the previous high of 56%.

(sung to The Beatles song “Help”)
Help, Beck needs somebody
Help, not just anybody
Help, you know Glenn needs someone, help
When Beck was younger, so much younger than today
He would simply booze it up and toke his days away
But now those days are gone since Glenn Beck found the cure
Now it is the Racist Biz in which this small mouse roars
Help Beck if you can, for he may drown
And the President he hates for being brown
Help Glenn as his sponsorships go down
Won’t you please help Glenn B.
And now Glenn’s life has changed in oh so many ways
His advertisers have just vanished in the haze
First it was Geico and Men’s Wearhouse out the door
Now CVS has joined the rest, they’re pulling out for sure
Help Glenn if you can, his smile’s a frown
With all of his advertisers leaving town
How long will Fox News keep him around?
Won’t you please help Glenn B.
When Beck was stronger, way back when in his heyday
He never needed anybody’s help in any way
But now those days are gone and Glenn Beck is abhorred
Fox will find it’s in a bind if he’s not out the door
Help Beck if you can, he’ll make the rounds
His resumé will circulate from town to town
He might find employment as a clown
