Ruht Roh...

Obama: 'I think we should have health care for everyone!'

Republicans: 'OH MY GOD!!..Obama's Trying to take over this country with his Nazi,Socialist,Muslim,Commie,Chicago style,..(inhale)..Hitler,Charles Manson,and Jack the Ripper will kill your grandma,ACORN,birth certificate,radical Nigerian agenda!'..

Obama: 'I think it's time we stopped torturing prisoners at Gitmo,shut down that disgraceful facility,and try those criminals in American courts'.

Republicans: 'RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!!..Obama is letting all the terrorists in the the world move into your spare bedroom,rape and murder your daughters,use up all your cell phone minutes calling Osama Bin Laden,and drink all your beer!'..

Obama: 'I think we should take serious steps to alleviate global warming'.

Republicans: 'LIES,LIES,LIES!!..It snowed seven inches in Fargo North Dakota just last week!..in the winter time..Proof positive that global climate change is a left wing MYTH!'..

Obama: ..'I think I'll have the tuna melt'..

Republicans: 'SWEET JESUSJOSEPHandMARY!!'..Obama is going to murder all the Dolphins,turn Wisconsin into a penal colony,and make it a capital crime to be caught in possession of PB&J!!'

Half a million unemployed,..Medicare recipients,and thousands of Federal employees: 'We really could use the money..You know,..to LIVE!'

Republican Senator Jim Bunning:.. 'TOUGH SHIT!'

..It might actually be humorous,if I weren't surrounded by people who listen to these insane diatribes,and nod their heads knowingly,.. as if it all makes perfect sense.

That's the sad part - what ought to be a funny over-the-top spoof feels all too close to the spew from the fine folks at Fox "News" and their mesmerized minions.

Politics just upsets me every day. Talking head idiot dolls.

And after they nod knowingly, do their heads keep bobbing?

Jeezus, it's so hard sometimes to have fellow citizens. What do you do with your brain while they're listening to this?

Secret Agent Woman- This was the easiest rant I've ever done..All I had to do was almost quote,..verbatum.

Jan- What a dream job that would be!..Listening to Republicans,and pointing out the absurdities in their logic.
..Fish in a barrel!

Big Yeller-Dawg- ..and I love you right back!..I'm wearing my 'Bohemian Bomb Squad' t-shirt,even as I type. :)

Booda Babe- Seriously..Really..O-Town is a sea of reactionary thinkers,and I feel like I'm drowning!..It makes it hard to concentrate.
Rush,Hannity,and Larson on the radio all day at work,and Fox news proudly blasting on BOTH wide screens at my favorite restuarant.
Not to mention the clever asides while standing in line at Food-Maxx'..
'Do you know what's on the menu at the White House?..Watermelon!'..Get it??

..and I'm so not kidding.
It's really starting to wear me straight the fuck out.

"Talking head idiot dolls"...we gotta ask Mom if we can make tshirts.

I feel ya, my friend. In my line o' work there's a fair amount of that "mentality" and it is all I can freaking do sometimes to keep my mouth shut. (Which in my line of work I really have to do).

Rainey- Moms,in general,have a way of defining the problem most eloquently..
As far as dealing with incredible ignorance in the workplace,the best we can do is don our tinfoil hats,in an effort to block out the evil transmissions of all those space gerbils from Venus.

Hi Sling,

Thought I'd drop by and see what's happening in your neck of the woods.

It is so scary that this is the way Republicans think. I know it's true because I work for a bunch of them that think Rush is right. The stuff that comes out of their mouths is truly shocking.

I really need to find a new job!


It's been swell as usual.

hahaha..well I shouldn't laugh it is and isnt funny.

I have to give up PB&J now? Man, I love PB&J's. Now I'm really mad. Where's the next Tea Party?

I feel for you, having to listen to the idiocy all day long. No wonder we can't get anything done.

At 4:28 PM , Anonymous Anonymous said...

I raised you right. Without me you wouldn't have such a brilliant mind. Or visa versa! Love you old man.

Billy P.- I notice they tend to start thumping on the bible to frighten people into submission..

Hi Janet!
You just can't offer up a common sense argument with folks that are pre-disposed to seek out reasons to dislike people of color.
..That's the only thing I can attribute it to.

Sage- We gotta laugh kid..Right in their faces,out loud,and in public.

Thinker- You don't have to give up PB&J,..you'll just have to hang around in unsavory parts of town to score it.

Anonypoop- There's a whole buttload of things I wouldn't have without you honey..A fine brood of Slinglets,for example. :)

(Clapping my hands) Oh Sling, clever, clever you, so perfectly put, and so damningly true - it beggars belief how some folk can spew such vitrol behind the cover of a bible (doubtless toting a gun as they do).

I kept yelling at the TV..."Give up your salary moron and help pay for the needed programs...." then he gave the finger to a reporter and said tough shit during the senate hearings. Who elected this guy? What kind of amoral, backward thinking brings this kind of person to the senate? Sad, just really sad....and here Steve and I sit trying to see how we can make $387 in unemployment pay our house payment of $1506.00. Walk in our shoes Jim Bunning for one damn day.

I know what you mean, Sling--I have a sister & brother-in-law that I love dearly, but they do "listen to these insane diatribes,and nod their heads knowingly." It's maddening. But whatcha gonna do? We just have to keep fighting for what's right, and praying for those who just don't get it.
