Party of No illuminates just what it is it stands for

Rethugs preen and high-five themselves for voting against something that Americans overwhelmingly want Congress to pass.

Last week President Obama reached out - as promised - to the tattered remnants of the Republican party, stopping by Capitol Hill for a meeting with top GOP lawmakers to discuss the urgent stimulus package. Turns out he needn't have bothered; before the president even arrived, House Minority Leader John Boehner appeared in front of the press and "urged members to vote no on the House Democrats' stimulus bill."

And vote no they did - unanimously.
The bill passed easily despite the opposition of all 177 republican House members, but party leaders delighted in what they considered a victory after two straight electoral drubbings and much soul-searching about what the party stands for.

"How about those House Republicans?" cheered Sen. Jim DeMint (R-Moron).

"House Republicans said we would stand up for American taxpayers at this time of economic hardship for our nation. And last night, standing together, that's exactly what we did," House Minority Leader John 'suck my' Boehner (R-Asswipe) wrote yesterday in a memo to his colleagues. "I am proud of our team."
Yeah! Way to go! Say it loud and say it proud, we'll do nothing in unison! And we'll continue to do nothing until the American people come to their senses and vote us back into power!
