Rove the irrelevant political Hack…

Rove the media dubbed “genius”.

This was from the 2002 mid-terms when the country was still reeling from 9/11 and these two douchebags decided that it was okay to portray opposition to their heinous plans (industry written legislation -prescription drug plan anybody; war with Iraq; blah, blah, blah) as unpatriotic.  Now the “genius” is calling Joe-The -Vice-President a liar.  Talk about the pot calling the kettle a bastard.  This, as they say in Bonnie Scotland, ‘eejit’ is so keen to get his mold infested claws back into the mesa of political relevancy that he thinks his commentary is worth a pinched shit.  Notice how the only forum for his anus gassations (I know it’s not a real word) is Faux News! 

Gee…guess the liberal media don’t want to hear the truth, huh!

We went away for a wee while to replenish our batteries.  However, we can see that those naughty Republicans don”t know when they’ve been carved up like a prison punk who just pissed off Manrape McManrape the head of the ‘El Grande Cajones” jailhouse rape gang!  We think it’s high time that these feckless idiots realize that their “dream” doesn’t exist and that their thinking is more derivative of the Taliban than an American.  On that note, let the slapping begin….

Paul Krugman’s appropriate description of the Bush Presidency:


Last night wasn’t just a victory for tolerance; it wasn’t just a mandate for progressive change; it was also, I hope, the end of the monster years.

What I mean by that is that for the past 14 years America’s political life has been largely dominated by, well, monsters. Monsters like Tom DeLay, who suggested that the shootings at Columbine happened because schools teach students the theory of evolution. Monsters like Karl Rove, who declared that liberals wanted to offer “therapy and understanding” to terrorists. Monsters like Dick Cheney, who saw 9/11 as an opportunity to start torturing people.

And in our national discourse, we pretended that these monsters were reasonable, respectable people. To point out that the monsters were, in fact, monsters, was “shrill.”


Why else would she refuse to reveal her medical records?


LAKEWOOD, Ohio (CNN) – With less than 24 hours to go before the presidential election, Sarah Palin still has not released her medical records and there is no indication the campaign is planning to do so.

Two weeks ago, Palin’s campaign told several reporters traveling with the campaign that a summary of the governor’s medical history would be made public before election day.

Reporters were told that details on Palin’s medical background would be released early last week. Last Thursday, after that timeframe had passed, a campaign aide backed off the previous pledge, saying the campaign wasn’t sure when the information would be released.

John McCain, Barack Obama and Joseph Biden have all provided details about their medical history.
