Dumbfuckery du Jour

Can Cons really get any more hypocritical and ridiculous?  Haley Barbour is suddenly of the opinion that tax cuts must be paid for – if they’re tax cuts suggested by those dirty Dems, that is: Yesterday, in an attempt to reach out to Republicans and jump start the economy, President Obama proposed new tax breaks …

Republicans have somehow convinced enough people that taxes = pure evil to make increasing taxes well-nigh impossible.  Witness the fruits of their labor: A month ago, the New York Times reported that cash-strapped states and municipalities are resorting to “major life-changing cuts in core services.” This includes four-day weeks for public schools, local bus systems …

How many Cons does it take to keep us from changing a lightbulb (h/t)? Unemployment remains at record highs. The economy is stuck in a rut. The US is still fighting wars on two fronts and constant threats to security here at home. But the real menace facing America? The looming phase-out of incandescent light …

I didn’t intend to write much about pollyticks this weekend, seeing as how it’s a holiday and everything.  But this is just too extreme to ignore: First up from the God Machine this week is a good example of the larger dynamic among political conservatives this year, with competing contingents split between secular economic issues …

All I want to do is spend time with my new books.  I want to sit surrounded by them, and page lovingly through them, lingering here and there on a page or a photo.  Oh, and I want to change the blade on my razor, since I finally found blades at a somewhat less than …

Mr. Alan “Social Security’s Just A Bunch of Cow Tits” Simpson’s at it again: It was encouraging to see the Obama administration make it easier for veterans affected by Agent Orange to receive disability payments. This is a worthwhile move, and it reinforces the fact that this administration is committed to doing right by those …

I don’t know whether to thank the Cons or scream: Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) has conceded defeat in her Republican primary, losing in a major upset to right-wing challenger Joe Miller. The primary was held last week, with Miller taking a 51%-49% lead in the election night count to the surprise of many observers. However, …

And the horsemen of hypocrisy keep on ridin’.  Short story: NJ’s Education Commissioner, Bret Schundler, managed a cock-up of astounding proportions, thus losing New Jersey a shitload of education funding.  Gov. Chris Christie threw a screaming fit, claiming the Obama administration’s bureaucracy was to blame (it manifestly wasn’t).  We’ll stop right there for a sec.  …

Memo to Gov. McDonnell and idiot friends thereof:  Taking $2.5 billion from the feds to balance your state budget does not make you a brilliant balancer: The Wall Street Journal editorial board has an item today heralding Virginia Gov. Robert McDonnell’s (R) $400 million budget surplus. According to the WSJ, it “proves” the efficacy of …

Way to go, fucktards: For nearly eight years, the right had a simple mantra when it came to defending the Bush/Cheney White House against criticism from the left: liberals were emboldening terrorists. If there was another large-scale attack, it’d be our fault. It’s hard to overstate how common this was. The left was constantly reminded …
