Amid all the hand wringing and sphincter clenching news about the civilizaton ending Piggy Flu, A reality check: the plain old regular flu has killed thousands since January.
(CNN) -- There had been no confirmed deaths in the United States related to swine flu as of Tuesday afternoon. But another virus had killed thousands of people since January and is expected to keep killing hundreds of people every week for the rest of the year.
That one? The regular flu.Pass this shit along......and wash your hands, for fuck's sake. And I swear to Allah, if I hear anybody mention the word pandemic........

Poetic justice from Tony Peyser
A great many Republicans are now all up in armsVia our good pals at Alternate Brain. If you haven't ever visited, you should.
Loudly calling this move outrageous.
They look at Collins & Snowe, think about swine flu
And hope Arlen won’t be contagious.

Here's David Broder padawan and supine Newsweek spunkbubble Jon Meacham -- the shorter version:
That is not to say presidents and vice presidents are always above the law; there could be instances in which such a prosecution is appropriate, but based on what we know, this is not such a case. I mean, its not like they got blowjobs or anything.You'd think after a while you would begin to realize your fucking ass hurts, goddammit.

As the re-branding of the Rushpublibot party continues, we will be seeing a brand new message......(or not) BE AFRAID!!!!
Maybe these hemmorhoidal drippings ought to ask the captain of the Maersk Alabama if he feels safer with Obama.

Think Progress reports (mostly):
In last night's press conference, Obama spent nearly a full hour answering questions from reporters, from media organizations such as the Detroit News, the AP, BET, the Daily Nosebag of Iowa City, the Maswegan Poultry Tribune, the North Bumfuck Probe-Register of North Dakota, the Miami Standard-Review Times, the Waco Herald-Post-Record-Tribune Ledger-Review and all three cable networks -- ABC, NBC, and CBS. One outlet that didn't get a question? Fox "News", whose affiliate was the only network station that decided not to air the prime-time news conference.Karma sucks, then it dances on your helpless and bleeding body, pissing on it, before shoving it into fire-ant mound near a water-buffalo wallow. Then craps on it.

You just gotta love Reich-Wingnut logic:
DeMint continued: “I would rather have 30 Republicans in the Senate who really believe in principles of limited government, free markets, free people, than to have 60 that don’t have a set of beliefs.”Considering you now have only 40 Republicans in the Senate, I, too, would like only 30 Rushthuglibots in the Senate, and the way you fucktards are going, we should get there not soon efuckingnough.

The screaming, unhinged anger coming from the right today is so deafening, I thought we'd show them a little sympathy and take a fond look back at George W. Bush's first 100 days in office. Before he ruined everything.
Heh. From here.

Tearful obstructionist has another hissyfit, but neglects to provide any sort of constructive countermeasures. Spray-tanned, whiny and clueless is no way to go through Congress, moron.
Coincidently, Mr Boner did not offer any plan of his own. Huh.

"The fact is that this president has moved in precisely the opposite direction of what the people want." -- hideous toe-sucking midget Dick Morris at towndump.cum. Uh, dude...
"After 100 days, Obama's approval ratings remain sky-high"
A new poll by the WSJ shows Prez Obama’s numbers are higher than Bush, Clinton, and the holy corpse of St Ronnie of Reagan. You were saying WHAT again, Dickless? Oozing fuck.
So who exactly is it that's out of touch with mainstream American values, rethugs?

"Its a threat to the country!!1!" vomited pudfaced minority leader Mitch McConnell.
Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter is a Democrat again following a decades-long turn among Republicans, a defection that has the GOP warning about the perils of unchecked power...... only a few months after the GOP were reveling in their reign of unchecked power.

In their bid to maintain minority status before disappearing entirely in a self-created black hole of suckitude, rightwingnut dittomonkeys across the interwebs are castigating the less-rabid members of their party. Here's a sample of some of the comments posted after Olympia Snowe said the GOP has abandoned its principles -- whatever they hell THEY were -- and called the Specter switch "devastating":
Ah, the Morally Bankrupt Party of Permanent Irrelevance has spoken! Good Christians all!

-- quote from Steve J via Twitter.
Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter will switch from the Republican't to the Democratic Party. From his statement:
Bonus: "No Senator, no matter how loyal he is to his party, should put party loyalty above his duty to the state and nation."
Bonus 2: GOP moderates put the blame squarely on rightwingnut dittomonkeys --
Bonus 3: a hysterical response from rethug Sen. John Cornyn of Texas --
Right. Well, maybe you republitards can just gerrymander some states to fix the votes again... oh wait, you can't anymore. Awwwwwwz. Fuck you and your morally bankrupt party of powermad troglodytes. And you can blame yourselves.

Politico: When it comes to criticizing President Obama, the watchdogs in the press are less pit bull and more Portuguese Water Dog.
That's funny! When it came to criticizing Preznit Bush -- oh, wait! I'm sorry! That never happened!

Unfortunately, not in THAT way, but still. Bwahahahahahahahahahaha!
Part of the blubbery fuckwit's dittomonkey base is up in arms, so to speak --
Whoa: one of the main constituents of your party takes you to task. What do you do? What DO you do?
Well, for starters, the cowardly "Mr" Limpbag "did not answer requests for comment" -- by that moonbat hippie rag the Moonie Times.
Bonus 2: comments at the website "are temporarily disabled." I bet they are!

Dems want to talk about anything other than Obama. So says The Hill's Doug Heye, through his ass:
The economy is in deep recession (thanks, rethugs), with massive layoffs announced every week (ditto); we're faced with war in Afghanistan and Iraq (thanks, Bush/Cheney) and now must battle a swine flu that threatens to turn into a pandemic (thanks, Susan Collins et al), which puts public health at risk and has already caused the European Union to issue a travel warning on visiting the United States and Mexico (even though you repugs hate the EU and Mexico). And yet what are we talking about? Whether or not Dick Cheney is the leader of the Republican Party.No, YOU are. Dems are talking about the swine flu, how popular the President is, St Ronnie's views on waterboarding, Prez Obama's high polling results, your filibuster of Kathleen Sebelius, the high marks the President is getting, Arlen Specter becoming a DINO rather that a RINO, and how much you guys suck in the polls.

The standard-bearer for the Redneck Spittoon Party of Fambly Valyoos is in the news again --
"It's obvious the intent is to see her administration paralyzed," a Palin spokeswoman whined, as the gov. whisked off to attend yet another talk show and GOP fundraiser in the Lower 48.

Thinking they're comedians, Fox will air an episode of "Lie to Me" Wednesday instead of the Prez' address. Funny and even more pathetic: its not a live feed from the usual Fox "News" programs.
Posted by maru at 4/28/2009 04:26:00 PM
GOP TV Fox "News" cums out of the closet and makes it official.
President Obama’s prime time press conference will air on one fewer channel this week.Hmmmmm. Not making it too obvious, are they? They are probably just exhausted from all of the teabagging.
Fox is “sticking with its regular schedule” on Wednesday night, The Associated Press reports, marking “the first time a broadcast network has refused Obama’s request” for airtime.
The press conference, scheduled for 8 p.m. Wednesday, will be Mr. Obama’s third of the year. It will mark his first 100 days in office. ABC, CBS and NBC, along with a multitude of cable networks, will carry the press conference live.
I'm sure that conveniently edited clips of the press conference will be available for the the usual bashing afterwards.

The Weekly Yambag's Bill "Always Wrong" Kristol pulls another one out of his well-worn ass:
Yeah -- tell that to Bill Clinton, you hypocritical douchewad.
Posted by maru at 4/27/2009 04:45:00 PM
No, that's not right. It SHOULD read 'Support for GOP-dips dips after teabagging'.
"As a matter of reality, in the first 100 days, [the Republican't Party] has not done anything to improve its political position with regards to the fact that it has been a shrinking entity."
So much for the huge populist uprising! The sense of rebellion brewing!

Via AmericaBlog -- A new Star-Tribune poll makes it pretty clear that the people of the North Star State have had it with their former Senator. Besides the rising calls of 'Go fuck a gopher, Norm!' echoing off his fat head.
Yeah! God bless America.

John McCain admitted on Face The Nation this weekend that the Bush/Cheney misadministration violated the Geneva Conventions regarding the torture of prisoners.
LibraryGrape: that means that the people that formulated the torture policy are guilty of war crimes and crimes against humanity. Stuff that we routinely call on other nations to prosecute.

News quiz: which party fought to keep money devoted to pandemic preparation out of the stimulus bill?
If you guessed the "Morally Bankrupt Party of Permanent Irrelevance," you win a free intarnet!
And why SOME of them are not yet rotting in prison.
Bonus nutfuckery: the GOP are also delaying the confirmation of the HHS secretary.
Disclaimer: some Dems also voted against the pandemic funding, and they also should be ridiculed. And rest assured, wingnutopia is already busy doing just that. But it was the rethugs who were all over the media blasting the very idea.
Along with volcano monitoring.

Dueling headlines at freetardia today almost cause a blip in the space-time continuum:
Btw, 'TOTUS' = telepromper of the US. Sigh. This is why we can NEVER let up. Ever.
Posted by maru at 4/27/2009 04:36:00 PM
Maybe it's just shitty Karma:
TheRushpublibot party is clueless, but then again, I repeat myself.
So Bobby Jindal makes fun of “volcano monitoring”, and soon afterwards Mt. Redoubt erupts. Susan Collins makes sure that funds for pandemic protection are stripped from the stimulus bill, and the swine quickly attack.
What else did the right oppose recently? I just want enough information to take cover.

In new polls, Prez Obama gets a high approval rating for his first three months in office, says Politico, wiping their raging butt-hurt with extra-quilted Charmin®.
69 percent of America approve of Obama, + the highest ‘right track’ numbers in years.
Oh, hey, Cinco de Mayo's coming up -- time for the reboobs' "dirty sanchez" parties!

Mounting evidence that Bush/Cheney ordered torture NOT to foil potential al Qaeda attacks, but to manufacture an excuse to invade Iraq: "the impetus here was largely political."
