When an MSNBC reporter asks repug Rep. Mike Conaway why the g-tards are blasting President Obama's response to the flight 253 incident when failed preznit Tipsy McStaggers took six fucking days to get around to commenting on the shoe bomber in 2001, the hypocritical turd can only babble, sounding bizarrely like Kodos in Treehouse of Horror VII:
"My fellow Americans. As a young boy, I dreamed of being a baseball, but tonight I say, we must move forward, not backward, upward not forward, and always twirling, twirling, twirling towards freedom."
Good one, dumbass.
Bonus: "Some of the same Republican lawmakers currently criticizing the President for softness on terrorism voted back in July 2007 against legislation that provided $250 million for airport screening and explosive detection equipment."

Emergency room staff try to stabilize noted jerkwad Rush Limbaugh upon arrival at the hospital:
Bonus: supposedly the hospital he is being treated at is the same one he accused of lying about Prez Obama's birth.

Grotesque asshat Rush Limbaugh was hospitalized in New Kenya after an oxycontin- and viagra-fueled sex romp with young boys went disastrously wrong. Or something like that. In other news, America's Junkie TM is now on some brand new awesome drugs as doctors race to discover what may have caused the piece of shit's chest pains.
As the Rude One would say, we're not saying we hope he dies, we're not not saying we're not hoping he dies. Not.
This comes only days after hearing that Satan's porcine handmaiden Karl Rove had been granted a divorce from his human female wife after behaving like a typical rethuglican:
Karl married Darby Hickson in 1986. They have one son, Andrew. Rove's previous marriage to a Houston socialite ended after a year.
Actor Randy Quaid recently complained in a letter to a judge that Rove hit on his wife, Evi.
Fuck pudding, I'm getting some popcorn.

Moments after Blue Dog Rep. Parker Griffith announces that he's switching from Dem to R, teabaggers vow to take him down in the next election.
"Being a Republican should be about more than just the letter next to a person's name… He voted for Pelosi for Speaker. He's actually been more regularly with Pelosi than Jim Marshall (D-GA). We can pick this guy off and get a real Republican in that seat.Actually, it does.
"Again, changing the letter next to your name does not magically make you one of us."

Palin – or Stalin? Chickenshit “rogue” calls on her armed brownshirts to eject bloggers, reporters from book-signing photo-op.
Almost as soon as I had my picture taken I felt a hand on my shoulder.Sounds vaguely communist to me… Of course, she CAN see them from her house, but still.
I turned around and came face to face with a local police officer who quickly informed me that I was on the "banned list".
"I am on the WHAT list?" I asked.
"The banned list sir, I am going to have to escort you off of the property."
Sarah Palin has done everything she could to keep the media as far away as possible during this book tour, however I do believe that this is the first time she actually had anybody listed by name.
Bonus: the reader comments from the Frontiersman, Failin’s local noozepaper.

Last week a disgusted John McCain claimed to never have seen a senator denied a few extra moments to finish his remarks -- except for that time he himself denied another senator a few extra moments to finish his remarks.
Flashback to October 10, 2002...
The PRESIDING OFFICER. The Senator’s time has expired.Hurrrrrrrrrrrr.
Mr. DAYTON. I ask for unanimous consent that I have 30 seconds more to finish my remarks.
Mr. McCAIN. I object.

Average hockey mom wins the dubious honor of telling the biggest political lie of the year, quits before the award ceremony.
A panel of experts ruled [Sarah Failin's] claim that the Obama administration was planning to introduce death panels "the most misleading statement of 2009."

Why do Canadians hate hockey?
Sarah Palin is booted from her scheduled $200,000 speech at a Canadian socialist hospital fundraiser following a huge backlash.
The dumbasses at the Hamilton Health Sciences Foundation received about 60 angry calls and e-mails from residents since the event was announced last week. About 10 people said they would not be donating to any event in which Palin has a role.WTF were they thinking? Morons.
Palin is an out-spoken conservative critic of new public health care plans in the U.S. and is scornful of Canada’s universal health care system.

The doughs for gingerbread and for sugar crisps are chilling and shortbread is next, once the butter softens. Tomorrow it'll be chocolate & peanut butter cookies and hopefully rumballs, if I can pry the bottle away from the BF. I haven't baked cookies in years -- I'd forgotten how
much fun messy it is. : ) And raw cookie dough: nommmmmmmm.
Waiting for the big snow to start! What're you guys up to?

Why do repuglicans hate our troops?
"This morning the Senate Republicans tried to filibuster the Defense Department appropriation bill -- that is to say, the funding for our soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan -- so as to cock-up health care reform. The hypocrisy of this is just blood-curdling. These are the people who scream about patriotism."
I bet each one of those fuckers was wearing a flag lapel pin, too.

Glenn Beck misses "the good old days when Russia was a radar blip from nuking us, hot dogs only cost a smile, black people weren't sensitive about mistreatment, and everyone felt as great as they did the day after 9/11."

"It's the charge of the light brigade!" Rep. Michele Bachmann yelled to an assembled crowd of tea party activists Tuesday, which responded with rapturous applause. Bachmann apparently didn't know she had compared them to a unit about to die in battle in one of the most spectacular blunders in military history. Not counting the Bush/Cheney Iraq war.
"Oh, what did I say this time?" the total embarrassment asked when informed of the comparison.

'He's not good enough, he's not smart enough, and gosh darn it, people don't like him.’
Sen./douchebag Joe Lieberman was holding forth on Medicare on the Senate floor when his allotted time expired. As is standard practice, Lieberman asked the chair for a few minutes of additional time to conclude, "without objection."What? Oh. Well, he should have.
But the presiding officer, one huge-balled Sen. Al Franken, said no. "Sit down and STFU. Seriously.”
”In my capacity as Senator from Minnesota, I object," he told the shriveled quisling.And by “never” we mean “like just two hours ago.”
Lieberman laughed. "Really? Okay, I don't take it personally."
But John McCain did. Rising to defend his asshole buddy he told Franken that in 20-plus years in the Senate, he'd never seen a member denied an extra minute or two of floor time.
"I don't know what's happening here in this body," McCain said, retying his onion to his belt, "but I think it is wrong. Joe Lieberman is not a communist. He may be a liar, a pig, an idiot and a communist, but he is not a porn star.”

Old and busted: visiting ACORN as a pimp and prostitute.
New hotness: using the repuke voters database to stalk women:
More misconduct has been alleged against Arizona Republican Party executive director Brett Mecum, who is now the subject of a criminal complaint alleging he used the Republican's voter database to stalk a young female graduate student...Of course, the RNC is standing behind their man. Just far enuff back that it doesn't look gay.
None of the women were willing to speak on the record. Some were afraid of Mecum. Others were afraid of hurting the party. Each, for her own reasons, was afraid to speak out. In fact, the only woman who feels safe enough to file a formal complaint against Mecum did so as she was moving out of state.

The wife of adulterous a-hole Mark Sanford (R) announced Friday morning she is filing for divorce, saying in a statement that she decided to dissolve her 20-year marriage after "many unsuccessful efforts at reconciliation" with that horny, shriveled faithless bastard.Why does Gov/scumbag Mark Sanford hate Christmas, Republicans?

Queen Bee-yatch silently puts up with signing things called “books” before being allowed to retire to her private jet for bourbon and moose jerky.
"She's a lot more relatable than the stereotypical old rich white male," said one furiously-masturbating mouthbreather waiting in line, clutching a copy of "Going Rouge."
The former Alaska governor arrived just before noon. Wearing her trademark red, she took the stage joined by her husband Todd and carrying their
Palin did not address the crowd and did not take questions from reporters. She started signing books immediately.
Fans wanting a signed copy had to purchase it first, from Barnes & Noble, the event's sponsor.

Fox Nooze: Man arrested for throwing tomatoes at Sarah Palin
Planet Earth: Man arrested for throwing tomatoes at police
A man was arrested for allegedly throwing two tomatoes at Sarah Palin from a second floor balcony during a book signing event at the Mall of America in Minnesota.Jeremy Olson, who police identified as “a local man with no permanent address,” was of course labeled by the rightwing blogodrome as a “leftist kook” and a “crazed Palin-hater” was “probably jealous of Palin, like many Liberals are.”
Neither tomato came close hitting the walking vegetable, but did hit a police officer in the face.
The idiot may face charges for assaulting a police officer.
*No relation to the beaner-loving nazi who fired at the country house of Lou Dobbs during hunting season last month.

Chip Pickering, a republican who served 12 years in the US House, has been accused of attacking the opposing team's coach at his son's soccer game Sunday in Madison, Miss.
The rival coach, Christopher Hester, was wearing a neck brace when Pickering allegedly attacked him.
Bonus: Pickering, a C-Street regular, was involved in a very public adulterous affair before resigning from Congress last year.

Former Missouri House Speaker Rod Jetton is facing assault charges for allegedly beating the shit out of his mistress while having sex. A female mistress.
The Scott County court clerk confirms that a felony complaint has been filed against republican Rod Jetton, who “recklessly caused serious physical injury” by hitting his inamorata on the head and “choking her resulting in unconsciousness and the loss of the function of part of her body.”
The affidavit claims the assault occurred during the night and into the morning of Nov. 16. It says Jetton and the victim agreed on a “safe word” “to use as a stop word during intercourse.”Though, as Wonkette points out, a “safe word” is hard to utter when you’re being CHOKED TO DEATH.
Bonus: Jetton, who has filed for divorce from his wife, has three children and “attends Methodist church regularly.”

The fraudulent activist hippies of the United Nations say planet getting hotter, is more than 6000 years old.
This decade is very likely to be the warmest since record keeping began in 1850, and 2009 could rank among the top-five warmest years, the U.N. weather agency reported Tuesday.But come on, who are you going to believe? The UN, the World Meteorological Organization, NOAA, GISS, NASA, and the UK Met Office, or Sean Hannity?

Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-wUT?): If only Republicans had full control of the government, they would fix everything.
”I dream some day of the Republicans having 60 votes. I’ll tell you one thing, I think we would finally have the total responsibility to get this country under control and I believe we would. But we never come close to that. There are essentially no checks and balances found in Washington today, just an arrogance of power with one party ramming through unpopular and devastating proposals on after the other.”In other news, Orrin Hatch is goddamn FUCKING SENILE.
