Sunday Morning Coffee (or Tea) – 54

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!

BREAKING NEWS: This week’s episode of “Do As I Say, Not As I Do” features California’s Republican gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman. It has been revealed that the “get tough on illegal immigration” candidate employed an undocumented illegal housekeeper for some nine years. The worker has also claimed that Whitman treated her poorly much of that time. it will be fun to see Whitman try to dig herself out of this one.

THIS JUST IN: Garrison Keillor says Republican Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, “embarrassing to me and a great many Minnesotans”. Good for you and all the citizens of Lake Wobegon, Mr. Keillor.

BREAKING NEWS: Republican Senate candidate and World Wrestling Entertainment CEO Linda McMahon (CT) this week stated that she believes Congress should consider lowering the minimum wage. When questioned by reporters as to what her state’s minimum wage is however, she was forced to admit that she did not know the answer. She then said that she “was just not going to comment any more on the subject. McMahon is just another example of an angry but uninformed Republican.

THIS JUST IN: As for Republican/Tea Party Delaware Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell, the OstroyReport says, “She’s scarcer than an Osama bin Laden video. Harder to find than Waldo. The burning question in Delaware these days is, “Where’s Christine?” As the NY Times reported Thursday, the state’s cracked-Tea-Pot Senate candidate, Christine O’Donnell, is apparently in hiding. And why not? She’s terrified of opening her mouth in public. I guess those grass roots have rotted.” “Nuff said.

BREAKING NEWS: This week’s episode of “Republicans Hurting the Country” features, you guessed it, the US Senate Republicans. On Sept. 30, the TANF Emergency Contingency Fund (TEF) — considered one of the most successful stimulus programs, having created 250,000 jobs for previously unemployed workers — expires. The Obama administration and Democrats had requested $1.5 to $2.5 billion to keep it going for another year. The House has passed two extenders, but yesterday, legislation failed again in the Senate because of Republican opposition. That means employers are now faced with laying off the TEF workers, as many as 100,000 into an economy that already has 14.9 million unemployed.

THIS JUST IN: Never mind that Republican New York gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino has a taste for racist emails, a desire to put welfare recipients into prison dorms and teach them “personal hygiene… the personal things they don’t get when they come from dysfunctional homes.” Just last week he threatened to “take out” a New York Post reporter. Does that sound like a criminal threat to anybody else?

BREAKING NEWS: Cable news ratings for the third quarter reveal that FOX NEWS’ ratings have fallen 21% in total viewers – and 26% for younger viewers. To add insult to injury, MSNBC‘s audience is growing. Does this mean that Americans are waking up?

THIS JUST IN: This week’s episode of “Whatever Happened To … ?” features Ann “The Man” Coulter and Michelle “Anchor Baby” Malkin. Has anybody seen or heard from the Coulter guy or Malkin in the last number of Months? Is it time to put their pictures on a milk carton?

BREAKING NEWS: Bill Mahar did us a solid on Friday night when he released his newest embarrassing clip of Republican/Tea Partier, Christine O’Donnell. In this clip O’Donnell is revealed as being amenable to any religion which includes her eating habits. The clip shows her admitting, “I would have become a Hare Krishna, but I didn’t want to become a vegetarian. And that is honestly the reason why, because I’m Italian and I love meatballs.” So, forget spirituality, it is the menu that is important when it comes to worship in the mind of Christine. Also, just wondering, but isn’t O’Donnell an awfully Irish sounding Italian name?

Well, until next week…

GO PACKERS!

Please remember to click on the song link below to familiarize yourselves with the tune and to have more fun singing along with today’s topical song parody.

FOX ON THE RUN

(sung to the Sweet song “Fox On The Run”)

Why is that network insane
No one there has a brain
So easy to abhor
Each day they add a new pretty face
But they’re losing in the gene pool race
They speak like sidewalk whores

Fox on the run
They scream and everybody starts a-running
Beck, Britt Hume and big Bill O’Reilly
Fox is on the run
F-foxy, Fox is on the run. They’ll fade away.

Koo-Koo, that is the Fox network brand
As “fair and balanced” as DisneyLand
So easy to ignore
News, that is so God damned lame
Should hide their heads in shame
And show their hosts the door

Fox on the run
They scream and everybody starts a-running
Beck, Britt Hume and big Bill O’Reilly
Fox is on the run
F-foxy, Fox is on the run. They’ll fade away.

(musical interlude)

F-foxy, Fox is on the run
They scream and think that we’re having fun
Take a run and hide yourself away
Fox is on the run
F-foxy, Fox is on the run. They’ll fade away.

  1. Of course Repubs in the Senate do not want jobs for Americans. They want to make sure everything President Obama tries to do fails so they can take back the power they lost in 2008. They don’t give a flying rat’s butt about the “rill” Americans who are losing their jobs, houses, and means of support. All they care about is staying in power and feeding at the trough lobbyists lay out for them.

    • You are absolutely right. Republicans care no more for the working middle class than they do for the evangelical right. They simply dupe those voting blocs into supporting them on social issues while those same blocs are then raped on economic issues.

  2. Hell hound on his trail

    Why didn’t Field Marshall Rumsfeld ever think of sending Carl Paladino out to the Northwest Territories to take out Bin Laden? Give Osama a little taste of the “unregulated” free market enterprise system!

    Paladino, of course, would have been more than welcome to bring along as many of his construction business associates as he felt were needed. No problem!

  3. The Italians likely aren’t interested in claiming CO’D, either. Here’s hoping the voters in DE and the other races you’ve mentioned come to their senses and keep these complete kooks out of office.
