Sunday Morning Coffee (or Tea) – 90

Just a few newsworthy items (and comments thereon) that have been making their way through the political universe this past week but may have escaped your attention. Please ponder and maybe chuckle a bit before enjoying a wonderful day!

BREAKING NEWS: If you would like to boycott some products who’s profits fund the Koch Bros’ radical conservative right-wing agenda, The Nation has done some research for you. Here they are: Quilted Northern and Angel Soft toilet paper (seems appropriate doesn’t it?); Brawny and Sparkle paper towels (known to clean up those ugly Koch Bros’ messes); Mardi Gras napkins (good for wiping your mouth after spitting vile lies); Vanity Fair disposable plates (for those who do not like to clean up their own messes) and Dixie Cups (for drinking Conservative Kool Aid).

THIS JUST IN:  Truthout.com reminds us exactly what we will lose if the Tea Party ever gains power:

  • Social Security and Medicare
  • Medicaid, SCHIP, and other health care programs
  • All federal education programs
  • All federal antipoverty programs
  • Federal disaster relief
  • Federal food safety inspections and other food safety programs
  • Child labor laws, the minimum wage, overtime, and other labor protections
  • Federal civil rights laws

BREAKING NEWS:  House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) warned last Monday that any stimulus spending in President Obama’s  jobs bill will face fierce opposition from Republicans. Eric truly puts the “Can’t” in Cantor.

THIS JUST IN:  In light of the audience and candidate behavior at the last two Republican debates, it is now evident that conservatives are fine with everybody (except unborn babies) dying.

BREAKING NEWS: This week’s episode of “Put Your Mouth Where Our Money Is” features moonbat-crazy Teapublican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann. Two bioethics professors have offered to pay more than $10,000 for medical records that prove the anecdote (the HPV vaccination cause “mental retardation”) that Bachmann told after Monday night’s Republican presidential debate is true. To date, not unexpectedly, Bachmann has not responded.

BREAKING NEWS:  Speaking of Michele Bachmann, inasmuch as the wild-eyed corndog-scoffing Tea-Bagger had the blatant audacity to utter the outlawed words “mental retardation”, will Sarah Palin return volley with her mandatory rebuke? Don’t hold your breath. Palin has a history of only criticizing Democrats and not Republicans for the offense.

THIS JUST IN: OurFuture.org reports that “Sen. Bernie Sanders, (I-Vt.), today introduced a bill that, if passed by Congress and signed by the President, would insure Social Security’s solvency for the next 75 years—without having to cut a single person’s benefit.”  Sanders’ solution is simple: gradually eliminate the cap on wages subject to the payroll tax starting with people earning more than $250,000.00. This is the guy that should be advising President Obama on economic matters.

BREAKING NEWS:  Wisconsin’s Republican Governor Scott Walker is having a very difficult time. He already faces a recall election after Wisconsin residents voiced their objection to his draconian attack on labor unions. Now, just this week, the FBI raided the home of one of his former top aides in what is presumed to be an investigation of aides campaigning for Walker on the taxpayer dollar and perhaps also some “pay to play”. Aah Scott Walker, we hardly knew ye!

THIS JUST IN:  Massachusetts Democrats have reason to celebrate. Teapublican Sen. Scott “Nudey” Brown finally has a serious opponent to his 2012 re-election efforts. Elizabeth Warren, the Harvard Law School professor, consumer advocate and architect of the newly formed Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has announced her candidacy for Ted Kennedy’s senate seat. The recapturing by Democrats of that seat would go a long way towards the party retaining its majority status in that congressional chamber. Scott Brown and his anti-middle class stance is not a good fit for true-blue Massachusetts.  Please consider making a donation to Elizabeth Warren’s campaign, here.


GO PACKERS!!!

SCOTT BROWN

(sung to the Petula Clark song “Downtown”)

If Mass. is your home
And you are full of baloney,
You must surely be – Scott Brown
You have your worries,
With no clothes in snow flurries
You’re a nudist boy – Scott Brown

You’re popular in the woods but were voteless in the city
Your term is only two years Scott, and isn’t that a pity?
You’re sure to lose

You’ve got some Mitt Romney hair
But it grows down on your buttocks, we’ve seen when you’re bare, and so
Scott Brown – politics of hate when you’re
Scott Brown – voted right out the door
Scott Brown – private life’s waiting for you
(Scott Brown, Scott Brown)

Don’t wear a frown
As the Tea-Baggers surround you
They are friends not foes – Scott Brown
The “Party of No”
Is just the place that they go to
Where their hatred grows – Scott Brown

Just charm them with the rhythm of your naked bossanova
They’ll be bare-assed with you too before the night is over
Happy again

They’ll take off their underwear
Then they’ll forget all their troubles, forget all their cares like you,
Scott Brown – not erudite or bright
Scott Brown – every nudist’s delight
Scott Brown – you’re gonna be alright now
(Scott Brown, Scott Brown, Scott Brown)

(Scott Brown, Scott Brown)

And you might find that your behind will help ingratiate you
With Larry Craig who loves the view and has a gentle hand to
Guide you along

You two would make quite a pair
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares dear bro
Scott Brown – you’ll get kicked out the door
Scott Brown – Won’t take a minute more
Scott Brown – Private life’s waiting for you

Scott Brown (Scott Brown) Scott Brown (Scott Brown)
Scott Brown (Scott Brown) Scott Brown (Scott Brown)
(repeat and fade out)

  1. Total and absolute fraud

    “The time has come to strike the tent. No matter how much my book sales might benefit from a Palin presidential campaign in 2012, I sincerely hope that the whole extravaganza, which has been unblushingly underwritten by a mainstream media willing to gamble the nation’s future in exchange for the cheap thrill of watching a clown in high heels on a flying trapeze, is nearing the end of its run.”- Joe McGinniss
