Some days it seems like the entire political aristocracy in and around Washington D.C. has been guzzling the Kool-Aid. This is no new development as one of my posts from October of 2005 will show. And in I was talking about the incredible stupidity of George W. Bush back in September 2006. Now the good citizens of America, those who were not too busy stuffing themselves with turkey or shopping of getting ready to watch the BCS they decided they’d had enough Kool-Aid.
Enough, perhaps, to last them the rest of their lives.
And they did something about it. They voted the Democratic Party into majorities in both houses of Congress and they basically said:
But it’s not just the bloviators of the corporate press that are drunk to the point of stupidity ReThuglican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee said yesterday of President Death’s plan to ‘surge’ troops into Baghdad that:
“I think we have to give the commander-in-chief an opportunity to make this succeed…I think we have to give him a chance to succeed.”
Gee Mike you stay hopeful ’cause yer gonna need all the hope you can get seein’ as how The War to Git Saddam Dead the Iraq War has now lasted longer than WWII. To me that seems…well it seems way too fukin’ much time, treasure and blood has been wasted so the cretin Bush can ‘succeed’. Nah Mike I don’t think I’d be worrying about measuring for new drapes in the White House was I you.
But ‘ol Huckabee is in good company. Here’s Senator ‘Slimeball’ McCain:
“…this can succeed and that failure is not an option if Americans hope to be safe from terrorism at home.”
Shit, I guess I better give up any thought of being safe in my home here in America then. Since, I guess you missed it Senator, we’ve already failed in Iraq.
Enough. Enough ReThuglican fantasy and bullshit. it’s time to fire up our keyboards and let our newly empowered Democratic leaders know that we elected them, in large part, to get us the fuck out of The MeatGrinder. Here are some handy links to some of them:
Senator Joseph R. Biden
Let them know what you think. Be polite, but be firm and demand action to stop this insane cabal of Kool-Aid drinkers, fascist ideologues and just plain idiots.Tell the Democrats that we elected them for a reason. To represent us. Now is the time we demand they do their jobs. No more ‘keeping their powder dry’. Time for them to act.
Don’t tell me you don’t have the time to save our Democracy. I don’t want to hear it.
Whoops! Looks like the game’s up fer Condi-lies-a-Lot and her husband boss.
Flash Update: Gosh…the Preznint’s speechifin’ does not seem to have increase the public’s confidence in his ‘leadership’. Pay special attention to Independents confidence levels. This might be a good topic to discuss with whichever Democrat you choose to contact.
Flash Update II: Here’s a new tool you can use to contact your Congresspersons and make sure they know what you think of President AssHat’s ‘surge’ plan.
