Sunday Morning Coffee (or Tea) – 48
Just a few newsworthy events and comments thereon that have been making their way through the political universe this past week. Please ponder and maybe chuckle a bit before enjoying a wonderful day, but be careful of those eggs!
BREAKING NEWS: John “I’m a Maverick, I’m not a Maverick” McCain apparently missed the memo that Republican candidates are not to align themselves with failed President George W. Bush during the upcoming election season. After President Obama finally extricated the U.S. from the ill conceived Iraq War, John McCain said,
“Last American combat troops leave Iraq. I think President George W. Bush deserves some credit for victory.”
To paraphrase Ann Richards at the 1988 Democratic National convention, “Poor John. He can’t help it. He was born with his foot in his mouth!”
THIS JUST IN: This week’s episode of “Conservative Republicans Who Actually Have A Clue” features Ted Olson, former George W. Bush solicitor general. He is also the attorney behind the case against California’s gay marriage ban, and husband of a woman who died aboard the plane that crashed into the Pentagon on 9/11. Last week he said that President Obama was right about his analysis of the “Ground Zero Mosque” as a constitutional right protected by the First Amendment.
“I do believe that people of all religions have a right to build edifices, or structures, or places of religious worship or study where the community allows them to do it under zoning laws and that sort of thing, and that we don’t want to turn an act of hate against us by extremists into an act of intolerance for people of religious faith. And I don’t think it should be a political issue. It shouldn’t be a Republican or Democratic issue, either. I believe Gov. Christie from New Jersey said it well, that this should not be in that political, partisan marketplace.”
BREAKING NEWS: Nevada’s Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, Sharron Angle is a crazy, disturbed religious zealot. This member of Sarah Palin’s “Mama Grizzlies” in 1992 campaigned against a high school football team donning black jerseys on the religious grounds that black as a color was thoroughly evil, invoking the supernatural and especially the devil . ‘Nuff said.
THIS JUST IN: This week’s episode of “The Conservative Supreme Court Finally Gets One Right” stars Orly Taitz. The famed dentist/realtor/lawyer/Birther’s $20,000 fine for filing frivolous lawsuits attempting to establish that President Barack Obama was not born in the U.S. was just upheld by the Supreme Court. Can we finally put the Birthers out to pasture?
BREAKING NEWS: In case you missed it, Newscorp, the parent company of Fox News donated $ 1 million to the Republican Governors Association. In comparison, it gave $ 48,000.00 to Democrats. Now if that is not “Fair and Balanced”, then what is?
THIS JUST IN: This week’s episode of ” Do Unto Others…” features the ironically named Dove World Church — whose pastor, Terry Jones, has written a book called “Islam Is Of The Devil,” which is also emblazoned on a sign outside the institution. The radically conservative church is planning to host “International Burn A Quran Day” on September 11th in Gainesville, Florida. How is that for tolerance? Gee, I wonder what their position is concerning the planned New York City mosque?
BREAKING NEWS: Americans United For Change has gone on the attack against conservative Republicans John Boehner (pronounced BO-ner), Paul Ryan and moonbat crazy Michele Bachmann. They have released a video ad which exposes the trio’s plan to privatize Social Security. The privatization of Social security is plain stupid on many counts. First of all, how are retired working class individuals supposed to suddenly gain the investment skills required to fund their retirements at a point in their lives when their mental acuity is slowing? Secondly, how do you think most people’s Social Security accounts would have fared as the result of the recent stock crashes? we could go on and on, but let’s watch the ad…
THIS JUST IN: This week’s episode of “Did I Just Defend My Enemy?” co-stars Sarah Palin and Laura Schlessinger. Last week Sarah Palin defended the now disgraced and unemployed Dr. Laura after the radio host was forced to abandon her show as the result of broadcasting the “n-word” 11 times in 5 minutes. Palin lauded Schlessinger and applauded her conduct. But did the former half-term ex-quitting governor of Alaska know that Dr. Laura said this about her in 2008?
“I’m stunned — couldn’t the Republican Party find one competent female with adult children to run for Vice President with McCain? I realize his advisers probably didn’t want a “mature” woman, as the Democrats keep harping on his age. But really, what kind of role model is a woman whose fifth child was recently born with a serious issue, Down syndrome, and then goes back to the job of governor within days of the birth?”
Ouch! That should have left a mark. I guess Palin is just too stupid to conduct any research.

(sung to the Billy Joel song “Big Shot”)
Well, you went off campaigning with ol’ John McCain
With your new G.O.P. purchased clothes
You had that beehive hairstyle on your head
And high heels for your toes
Ooh,, and when you woke up in the mornin’
With your bub-ble burst
And tears pouring out of your eyes
We know “Thanks But No Thanks” was just
Another one of your lies
Because you had to be a big shot, didn’t cha
You had to open up your mouth
You had to be a big shot, didn’t cha
Now your smile’s become a pout
You talked a lot of Reverend Wright
But all you did was scream and shout
You showed us that you’re way too uptight
You tried to be a big shot that night (Ooh oh)
And no one was impressed with your wolf hide dress
Just because you shot the wolves from a plane
And nobody could have really cared less
That you can see the Ukraine
But now you just don’t remember
The dumb things you said
And I’m damn sure you don’t want to know
I’ll give you one hint, Barbie
I think you got plumbed by Joe!
Yes, yes, you had to be a big shot, didn’t cha
You had the SarahPac girls wowed
Your nose was running pig-snot, oh ya
Hockey mom without a doubt
Your interviews were such a sad sight
You’re so much fun to be around
You had to have the front page, bold type
Upstaging McCain most every night, (Ooh oh)
Oh Oh whoa whoa oh, Oh Oh whoa who-oo-oo-oo-ah,
Oh Oh Oh whoa whoa oh, Oh Oh whoa.
Well, it’s no big sin to stick your two cents in
If you’re talking to someone that’s grown
But you’re attacking Levi
Because he was on the Tyra Banks Show
No, no, no, no, no, no
You had to be a big shot, didn’t cha
You had to badmouth that young boy
You had to be a big shot, didn’t cha
Just because you were annoyed
You had to have the last word, that’s right
You know what everything’s about
But still we know that Levi spent nights
Sleeping at your house within your sight, Oh oh
Oh Oh whoa whoa oh, Oh Oh whoa
Big shot…Big shot… Big shot…Mmmm…Big shot…Whoa whoa
