Sunday Morning Coffee (or Tea) – 30
Just a few newsworthy meteorites that have come careening through the atmosphere this week…
BREAKING NEWS: A Massachusetts politician has once again become a flashpoint in the health care reform debate. Surprisingly it is not the nudist Republican Senator Scott Brown. This time it is House Democrat Stephen Lynch. He has declared that he will vote “no” on the health care reform bill. In doing so, he will be the only one of ten Massachusetts Representatives that will not vote for passage of the bill. Consequently, he has just become the darling of Boston’s conservative talk radio pundits. He has been an invited guest on most all of their shows this week and the hosts are simply giddy that a Massachusetts Democrat is joining all Republicans in rejecting the bill. Lynch has become such a fan favorite of the conservatives that they are urging him to run for the Senate against longtime incumbent John Kerry. The right wing talk jocks are touting a potential conservative revolution in the bluest of blue states. Problem is, the Boston radio hosts have missed Lynch’s point entirely. Lynch is voting “no” because he does not believe that the bill is LIBERAL enough. He opposes the present bill because it lacks a public option as well as a repeal of the anti-trust exemption for the health insurance companies. If Lynch decides to run for the Senate in 2012 it will not be a race against John Kerry. He will run against the newly elected clothing challenged Republican Scott Brown.
THIS JUST IN: Kudos to Florida’s Democratic Representative Alcee Hastings for telling it like it is. On Saturday he told Republicans, “You all in the minority continue to say what the American people think. You don’t know what all of the American people think. And you certainly don’t know what those in my constituency think.” Let ’em have it Alcee.
BREAKING NEWS: If you want to witness the stupidity of the Tea-Baggers, watch this.
THIS JUST IN: This week’s episode of “Fox News Phonies Behaving Badly” features Sean Hannity. To add insult to injury, Hannity has been outed by a right wing blogger. Last Thursday Debbie Schlussel posted an article on her blog that reveals that Sean Hannity’s charities which were intended to benefit injured soldiers and their children have actually benefited Hannity and his family to a far larger degree. The article states:
For the last several years, Sean Hannity and the Freedom Alliance “charity” have conducted “Freedom Concerts” across America. They’ve told you that they are raising money to pay for the college tuition of the children of fallen soldiers and to pay severely wounded war vets. In fact, less than 20%–and in two recent years, less than 7% and 4%, respectively–of the money raised by Freedom Alliance went to these causes, while millions of dollars went to expenses, including consultants and apparently to ferry the Hannity posse of family and friends in high style. And, despite Hannity’s statements to the contrary on his nationally syndicated radio show, few of the children of fallen soldiers got more than $1,000-$2,000, with apparently none getting more than $6,000, while Freedom Alliance appears to have spent tens of thousands of dollars for private planes. Moreover, despite written assurances to donors that all money raised would go directly to scholarships for kids of the fallen heroes and not to expenses, has begun charging expenses of nearly $500,000 to give out just over $800,000 in scholarships.

BREAKING NEWS: This week’s episode of “Republicans Using Taxpayer Money For Their Personal Benefit” features South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford. The Washington Post reports that the wife cheating one time G.O.P. presidential hopeful,
has agreed to pay $74,000 in fines to resolve dozens of charges that he violated state ethics laws with his campaign spending and travel, including a taxpayer-funded rendezvous with his Argentine mistress
Just another example of Republican pols profiting from the stupidity of their supporters.
THIS JUST IN: This week’s episode of “The Biggest Republican Loser” features the former ex-quitting Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin. It appears that the poorly educated Palin will star in a cable television reality series tentatively titled, Sarah Palin’s Alaska. She is seeking payment in the amount of One Million to One and a Half Million Dollars per episode. Each week Palin will make surprise visits to places in Alaska where she has never been like the Governor’s Mansion and Juneau.
On a more serious note, please cross your fingers for the passage of the Health Care Reform Bill today in the House of Representatives.

Dear Mr. Fantasy song link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vxVlN-LzIks
DEAR, MR. HANNITY
(sung to the Traffic song “Dear, Mr. Fantasy”)
Dear, Mr. Hannity you are a goon
Some even say you are daffy
Your nightly show is just like a cartoon
Hit that bong, chug that jar
You are the one that just makes us all laugh
Unlike Glenn Beck, you don’t go to tears
You should be sad that you do not have your gonads
You could face waterboarding fears
Oooo Ahhhhh Ahhhhh
Dear Mr. Hannity you’re no Brit Hume
Although, he too is unhappy
Insanity prevails throughout Fox News
Always wrong, that you are
Oh so crappy
Dear Mr. Hannity go back to your room
That would just make us all happy
Do anything, take us out of our gloom
Sing a song, play guitar
Make it snappy
We all just watch you to have a good laugh
We haven’t laughed so hard in ten years
You are one sad excuse for a real college grad
Just like all of your poor Fox News peers
