Biggest Flip-Flop Yet.

leave a comment »

Richie Rich has flown over America in his private jet, surveyed the damage and in the course of 36 hours, decided the economy has gone from “strong” to total crisis — in a mere day and a half!

That’s gotta be some sort of Flip Flop Hall of Fame type shit. 36 hours! In a  day and a half, Mr. “I Don’t Know Much About the Economy” decides we’re in a “total crisis”, after all. Gee, what the fuck do you think the first hint was for this stupid motherfucker?

Let real wages fall, number of American’ living in poverty rise, unemployment spike and every thing’s cool. Let some Wall Street bitches lose their yacht money on real estate, and now “it’s total crisis.”

If Only Sarah Palin Lived Next to a Bank

with one comment

In a day in which the major markets sold off nearly 4% finishing their worst close since September 11, the financial world seems to be at a loss for answers as to how to stem the tide of what is increasingly looking like a complete collapse of the American markets.

No one knows what Bernanke and his crew will do at their meeting tomorrow. CNBC is chock full of guests groping for answers. American financial wizards are at a loss.

We need a a superhero. We need someone who knows more about the financial system than perhaps anyone else in America. Damn you Sarah Palin— If only you lived next door to a bank!

By GOP reasoning this would make her an expert in the financial system and an expert is what we need now. We’ve already seen John McCain claim she knows more than anyone in America about energy ‘cuz she lives next to a pipeline. And we’ve all seen the Republicans fall over themselves claiming she’s an expert in Russia, ‘cuz she can see it from her house. Damn, don’t they even have an ATM in Wasilla? I’m sure in GOP circles that’d do.

C’mon Sarah, get out from under McCain’s shadow and tell us all how you live next door to an ATM (or at least have visited one) and with your super human intellect (journalism degree from Idaho State and GOP bullshit) that makes you the world’s most renowned expert in the field of finance.

Let’s go pitbull, get in there and input your PIN number— save us all!

More Pigshit

with 2 comments

Let’s just get straight to the facts and quotes, ‘cuz this stupid shit is pissing me off to no fucking extent:

John McCain less than one year ago regarding Hillary Clinton’s healthcare plan:

“I think they put some lipstick on a pig,” he said, “but it’s still a pig.”

Elizabeth Edwards on McCain’s healthcare plan

John McCain’s health care plan was like “painting lipstick on a pig.” 

Title of John McCain’s former press secratary’s book:  

Lipstick on a Pig: Winning in the No Spin Era.

Obama on Bush’s mission for Petraeus:

“George Bush has given a mission to General Petraeus, and he has done his best to try to figure out how to put lipstick on a pig.

McCain on Romney:

“Never get into a wrestling match with a pig. You both get dirty — and the pig likes it.

Definition of the idiom Put lipstick on a pig”:

If people put lipstick on a pig, they make superficial or cosmetic changes, hoping that it will make the product more attractive.

Will The Lies Ever End?

with one comment

It’s the weekend and I’m tired but here’s a link to more GOP bullshit:

The crux of the story goes like this: Fox “news” made up some bullshit (I know, you’re shocked) about the Obama team throwing away all those American flags that 75,000 people used at Mile High Stadium to witness history being made.

The McCain camp, being total douche bags, picked up the story knowing it was a lie and promoted it anyway (but it’s not McCain’s fault ‘cuz he was a POW).

In turn the right-wing press joined in the circle jerk and the next thing you know Barack Obama apparently said he invented the Internet while smoking crack spliffs with Osama Bin Laden that had been rolled from little bits of the constitution and seasoned with the blood of dead soldiers (or babies, I’m not sure which).

The Truth: The flags were packed up and stored for future use.

McCain Promises to Insult Our Intelligence in Speech

leave a comment »

After a night in which his wildly unqualified, “bullshit” VP pick eviscerated Barack Obama with a colossal pack of lies and sarcastic insults, John McCain plans to test the American people’s intelligence a mere 24 hours later by calling for “an end to the rancor” in our politics.

I know… but try to not laugh. He’s serious.

How many will fall for it? What will be the correlation be of people who fall for McCain’s horseshit vs. the number of active Fox viewers? I can tell you that number in advance: 100%.

Stay tuned to watch self-flagellating network flacks fall over themselves agreeing with Grandpa Simpson…. just before they turn to some story blaming all the rancor on Obama.

GOP’s True Feelings: Palin is “Bullshit”

leave a comment »

Ah, the dreaded open mic— a device so insidious it knows no political bounds and can snare the best of ’em at anytime. Just ask Jesse Jackson

And now it has befallen one of the GOP’s biggest: Peggy Noonan, a top GOP pro, former speechwriter to Ronald Reagan, columnist for the Wall Street Journal and general all around Republican soldier has been caught on an open mic along with former McCain adviser and Time magazine columnist Mike Murphy letting their true feelings be known about John McCain’s pick for Vice President of the United States.

And it ain’t pretty.

On a day when Republicans have been making a concerted effort to snow the American people into thinking they’re all just wild about Palin this: “It’s Over.” said Noonan. “(McCain’s choice) is bullshit.”

Not wanting to be the only operative on the set to not stick his foot in his mouth, former McCain adviser Murphy let it be known that he thinks the choice of Palin is “gimmicky” and “cynical”

Of course yesterday was a different story for Murphy. Click here.

Transcript:

Chuck Todd: Mike Murphy, lots of free advice, we’ll see if Steve Schmidt and the boys were watching. We’ll find out on your blackberry. Tonight voters will get their chance to hear from Sarah Palin and she will get the chance to show voters she’s the right woman for the job Up next, one man who’s already convinced and he’ll us why Gov. Jon Huntsman. (cut away)
Peggy Noonan: Yeah.

Mike Murphy: You know, because I come out of the blue swing state governor world: Engler, Whitman, Tommy Thompson, Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush. I mean, these guys — this is how you win a Texas race, just run it up. And it’s not gonna work. And —

PN: It’s over.

MM: Still McCain can give a version of the Lieberman speech to do himself some good.

CT: I also think the Palin pick is insulting to Kay Bailey Hutchinson, too.

PN: Saw Kay this morning.

CT: Yeah, she’s never looked comfortable about this —

MM: They’re all bummed out.

CT: Yeah, I mean is she really the most qualified woman they could have turned to?

PN: The most qualified? No! I think they went for this — excuse me– political bullshit about narratives —

CT: Yeah they went to a narrative.

MM: I totally agree.

PN: Every time the Republicans do that, because that’s not where they live and it’s not what they’re good at, they blow it.

MM: You know what’s really the worst thing about it? The greatness of McCain is no cynicism, and this is cynical.

CT: This is cynical, and as you called it, gimmicky.

MM: Yeah.

 

But you know, when the cameras are on “She great… and has lots of executive experience.”
