John Boehner, Kill Yourself.

john boehner, kill yourselfJohn Boehner has a lot of goddamned gall as today, in a closed meeting with House Republicans, he said the following:

"Let's call bullshit bullshit. This election is about jobs, jobs, jobs."

Two years ago the Republican Party campaigned on "Jobs. Jobs. Jobs" And it worked. And once installed as Speaker of the House John Boehner made the promise that "We're going to have a relentless focus on creating jobs.

Except it's been two years and Mr. Boehner's congress has not, through any sort of legislation, created a single job. Not one.

In fact, a very good case can be made that the GOP has actively stalled job growth in this country as a political tool. The Congress is, after all, the primary body which can enact the sort of legislation which would result in lower unemployment, but they've sat on their hands for two years. The famous "Do-Nothing Congress" doesn't hold a candle to the amazing sloth the current Congress has exhibited.

Even so, the private sector is doing very well, unemployment is hovering just above 8 per cent, even as Republican-led state legislatures are shedding public sector jobs as fast as they can to make the employment numbers look as grim as possible. Teachers, firefighters, police, all being released from their jobs in record numbers just so the GOP has a stick to bash the president with.

Mr. Boehner, you are a waste of otherwise good RNA but there is a way to redeem your useless existence on this planet.

To paraphrase the sainted Bill Hicks, "Kill yourself."


Seek sweet release by sucking on any one of the hundreds of complimentary NRA Magnums you keep in the office junk drawer. Give it up by choking yourself on your own fake tears. Shuffle off this mortal coil by disconnecting your lips from the life support of Richard Koch's sweet, puckered asshole. Kick your bucket by coating yourself with Pam and baste yourself insensate in a tanning booth. Anything that will bring dignity back to the name of "Boner".



Mitt Romney Is A Big Fat Liar.

mitt romney liesMitt Romney lied today when he gathered a gaggle of reporters together and asserted the following:

" An independent inspector general looked at this investment [Solyndra] and concluded that the [Obama] administration had steered money to friends and family - to campaign contributors."

No part of that is true. No inspector general ever made that conclusion. The only source for that allegation was from a book written by a known Republican operative named Peter Schweizer. He was an advisor to Sarah Palin's PAC, a biographer of the Bush family, and an editor of Andrew Breitbart's web site. He is a little fish spouting big nonsense.

Mitt Romney is a liar. A big fat, liar.


Note: The "Notes" section has been replaced by the new "Lies of Mitt Romney" section. And, yes, there will be a collected edition in the days to come.

Republican Job Creation Update

republican job creation6-1-2012: Another day, another abortion bill. This time the "Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act." Which was designed to stop abortions based on sex or race. Seriously. It failed. Apart from that bit of nonsense the day was one long last-minute rush to pass bills that pay the bills. No jobs were created.
