Sunday Morning Coffee (or Tea) – 56

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:  Jesse Ventura put Fox News in a death grip this week. On Thursday, the former Minnesota governor was a guest on the Joy Behar Show when he said this,

“He’s (Bill O’Reilly) a spineless puke. The whole Fox won’t have me on. The nighttime guys. I call them the three stooges, and we all know which one’s Curly. If Glenn Beck isn’t Curly Howard’s kid*…I view him and Hannity and them as the Three Stooges, because if they can’t intimidate you, they won’t have you on”

THIS JUST IN: Speaking of Fox News, two Republican insiders revealed this week that moonbat-crazy Teapublican Christine O’Donnell told them, “I’ve got Sean Hannity in my back pocket, and I can go on his show and raise money by attacking you guys.” Jeesh, talk about stating the obvious!

BREAKING NEWS: Motherjones.com reports that It’s fairly common for conservative political candidates to support eliminating the federal Department of Education. But in California, Tea Party darling and congressional candidate David Harmer has gone further. He’s advocated eliminating public schools entirely and returning education to “the way things worked through the first century of American nationhood.” You know, back when educational opportunities for poor people, African-Americans, women, the disabled, and others were, to say the least, extremely limited. Just another Tea-Bagging crackpot.

THIS JUST IN: A sure sign that aliens have invaded earth and adversely affected the minds of countless Americans is that whack-job Teapublican Michele Bachmann will report $5.4 million in 3rd quarter fundraising later this week, a figure that smashes records in Minnesota and appears to set a new national mark as well for Congressional candidates. Don’t go into the light!

BREAKING NEWS: A great limerick found on Madkane.com.

Open Limerick To The Anti-Government Crowd
By Madeleine Begun Kane

You folks who cry out for less gov
Have lots of gov programs you love:
You think Medicare’s great
And you’d surely berate
Any pol who gave SS a shove.

You hate taxes for highways and schools,
But you don’t want your kids taught by fools.
And you’re quick to unload
When your bridges corrode.
Please wake up — don’t be Tea Party tools.

THIS JUST IN: It is nearly Halloween and that means scary freaks and ghouls are in season. Need proof? Just watch Fox NewsGretchen Carlson and Laura Ingraham.

BREAKING NEWS: Not yet convinced that Teapublican Rand Paul is crazy? Watch this and then vote for Jack Conway.

THIS JUST IN: President Barack Obama came to Boston yesterday to raise funds for Democratic candidates and to stump for Massachusetts Governor, Deval Patrick. The best line of the event however was delivered by Patrick when he said, “Three years ago we worked hard to change the guard. Now we have to work hard to guard the change.”

Every Kind Of People song link:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_tEH_YYqEH0&feature=player_embedded


(sung to the Robert Palmer version of the song “Every Kind Of People”)

The far right always competes
They all lie and then misspeak
Try to keep their jobs
Fighting to land a spot on Fox

It takes every kind of people
To make that right wing sound
Every kind of people
To vainly scream and shout

We’re not sure Glenn Beck can read
Is Ann Coulter a he or is it a she?
O’Reilly seems so damn uptight
Limbaugh cannot keep a wife

Though they profit by deceit
Honest men know that
Fox will suffer defeat
If you’re anything but white
Fox News will insult you with delight

It takes every kind of people
To make that right wing sound
Every kind of people
To vainly scream and shout

(musical interlude)

You know that hate’s their only goal
They learned that long ago from Bob Dole
Hey, and they are all insane
Looking to always pass the blame

It takes every kind of people
To make that right wing sound
It takes every kind of people
To vainly scream and shout

Every kind of people
To vainly scream and shout
It takes very kind of people
