Sunday Morning Coffee (or Tea) – 68

Just a few newsworthy items (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: Talking Points Memo (TPM) reports that a group of Senate Democrats has identified the new Tea Party caucuses in the House and Senate as existential threats to Social Security, and are aligning to create a bulwark against them. They’re pressing President Obama to re-engage and get on their side of the issue, and they have some muscle in the form of their message guru, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY). He said,  “We’re not crying wolf here, this is a serious movement to undo the most successful government program in the 20th century.” Why does it not surprise Lynnrockets that the Tea Party would be behind such a move?

THIS JUST IN: Is it just me, or is anyone else skeptical about the recent report that concludes that the 5000 birds that fell dead from sky in Arkansas died from blunt force trauma? What on God’s green earth did all 5000 birds get hit by all at the same time? The moon? Come on, there has to be a better explanation than that.

BREAKING NEWS: Is it a surprise to anyone that moonbat-crazy Michele Bachmann (R-MN) who insisted throughout last year’s campaign season that Republicans must focus on jobs, has just suggested in a list of proposed spending cuts that the government “eliminate federal job training programs”? You simply cannot believe one word that emanates from this crackpot’s mouth.

THIS JUST IN: Does anybody else out there like to live vicariously through Charlie Sheen?

BREAKING NEWS: This week’s episode of “What A Bust!” features the Tea Party Caucus. The first meeting of the Senate Tea Party Caucus on Thursday attracted just four senators — out of 47 GOP members — willing to describe themselves as members. Even Tea Party star Marco Rubio avoided the event. Let’s face it, no sane person would want to hitch their boxcar to that crazy-train.

THIS JUST IN: In his State of the Union response, Paul Ryan (R-WI) had this to say about Social security, “This is a future in which we will transform our social safety net into a hammock, which lulls able-bodied people into lives of complacency and dependency.” What Mr. Ryan failed to tell the American people however, was that he personally collected Social security death benefits after his father passed away and used them to pay for his college education. Hmm, looks like somebody has some ‘splainin’ to do.

BREAKING NEWS: Fox News Comment of the week. In response to the Fox News headline, “California Neighbors Irate Over Nazi Flag in Window”. Website comment: “Is this any worse than all the Mexican flags I see on Cinco De Mayo?”

THIS JUST IN: Just when you thought that the potential list of whackos competing for the 2012 G.O.P. Presidential nomination could not get any weirder, along comes Sharron “2nd Amendment Remedies” Angle. When asked by an Iowa reporter if she planned to run, she responded, “I’ll just say I have lots of options for the future, and I’m investigating all my options.” Good grief!

BREAKING NEWS: It was refreshing to see Politicususa report this week that Glenn Beck’s ratings have dropped nearly 50% over the last year – he’s lost almost 500,000 viewers a night since November. It would appear that even the under-educated and misinformed Fox News audience is fed up with listening to Beck predict things that never happen or rant about wildly imagined conspiracy theories. They may finally even realize that Beck appears to be having some sort of nervous breakdown before their very eyes. Whatever the underlying reason, like his sponsors, his audience is now leaving in droves.

Speaking of Glenn Beck, 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.

Desperado song link:


(sung to the Eagles song “Desperado”)

Desperado, you better come to your senses
Your racist offenses, so public now
Oh, you’re a hard one
But this will be your last season
The Fox boys are teasin’ you
Your show’s all done now

After your unseemly cryin’, boy
We knew you were unstable
We have all seen you fall apart on your set

Now it seems to me, you don’t bring
One sane sentence to the table
But what could one expect from crazy Glenn Beck

Desperado, you better fetch that old plunger
You’ll soon be flushed under that porcelain throne
Your kingdom, your kingdom fell and it’s not all that shocking
You just kept on talking till you were all alone

Will your deep dark soul hibernate in slime?
Your name, Glenn Beck, constitutes a crime
As does most everything that you say
Your sponsors all fleeing your show
Ain’t it funny as we watch them go away?

Desperado, You’ve shown us all what nonsense is
The prevailing sense is, you only hate
Your tears are rainin’, cuz you know nobody loves you
The Lord in Heaven up above you
(heaven up above you)
The Lord in Heaven up above you will decide your fate

  1. Where would Paul Ryan be without his father’s social security? He got his, so they rest can go hang.

    • Great news about Beck! Bunny and a chainsaw in the same breath. How low can you go. nswfm: this is how I break down the parties, along your line of thinking:
      Democrats: I have mine and want you to have yours too.
      Republicans: I have mine, fuck you.
      Independents: I have mine, and want you to have yours too if it doesn’t cost me anything.

  2. Our Man in Cairo

    “The U.S. and other responsible nations must work together to support the pursuit of freedom, democracy, and human rights in Egypt and throughout the world.”-Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Chairwoman of the Foreign Affairs Committee.

    Ileana had to say something: Her political career depends on railing hysterically at her Cuban-American constituents in Miami for the forcible ousting of Fidel Castro.

    Of course, now that after 30 years of repression, Egyptians want Mubarak out, we’re advising that he remain to ensure orderly, leisurely elections: we’d prefer that “the wrong types” weren’t elected. What could be worse than a hawkish, Muslim Huckabee?

    McCain, who criticized the President for not meddling in the Iranian uprisings, has yet to announce that “Today we are all Egyptians”, not that Egyptians much care about his opinion.

    • Americans didn’t care about McCain’s opinion, especially after he chose Sarah Palin. He’s irrelevant at this point. If she were to run for the presidency, a joke at this point, all an opponent would have to do is put up her crosshairs map next to the photo of the little girl who died in Tuscon, and it would be over. He will forever be linked to Palin who will forever be linked to that little girl’s murder. End of story.

  3. On the low turnout at the Tea Party Caucus meeting: “Let’s face it, no sane person would want to hitch their boxcar to that crazy-train.” True enough, they hitched just long enough to get ELECTED.

    Ryan collected Soc Sec benefits? Oh but you see he put them to good use, not like others of us who will use them in the not too distant future to say, FEED ourselves. Quelle surprise, yet another Republican hypocrite.

  4. Today in SoCal…this just in also, too

    Local news is reporting Shailey Tripp, Todd Palin’s message ‘therapist’ has been set up in the resort’s VIP suite and Tracy Morgan lead the invocation with a billionaire’s circle jerk.
