More like this, please

Chris Matthews, Barney Frank rip Darrell Issa a new one for using the term "Democrat" Party, being a shameless, bloviating fuckwipe --

Matthews: Well, I think the Democratic Party calls itself the Democratic Party, not the Democrat Party. Do we have to do this every night? Why do people talk like this? Is this just fighting words to get the name wrong?

Issa: This isn't intended to be fighting words.

Matthews: They call themselves the Democratic Party. Let's just call people what they call themselves and stop the uh, the Mickey Mouse here. Save that for the stump -- seriously.

Issa: Chris, Chris.

Matthews: Now let's get to the issue here, seriously we've got a fiscal challenge. I want to go back to Congressman Frank and to some English here. Congressman Frank are you worried about the size of these WWII numbers here? Again, 1.75 trillion deficit this year. A spending level of almost 4 trillion. We're almost running deficits as big as the revenue number we're bringing in.

Frank: Well Chris let me first of all come to the defense of my colleague Mr. Issa and the Republicanistical Party that he represents...

Issa: Thanks, Barney.

Frank: You're welcome there Darrell. The point is this. For him to say "oh these are the Democrat's deficits"... I have never seen people disavow their own handiwork so quickly. And I knew that born again was an important strain in our society but born again deficit haters, it's a new version.

Way to go Barney!

The only problem with deficit spending right now is that there isn't enough of it in Obama's budget to fix the problems we have.

World War II is widely credited with creating enough employment demand to end the Depression. What usually isn't credited is that we were averaging deficits of $5 TRILLION PER YEAR in today's dollars to make that happen.

Just sayin'.
