History In The Making: The closest that Clarence Thomas has ever been to a black man
You gotta love the awakened sleeping giants that the Republican Party has suddenly become.
Eight years of napping on the job while the Dick ‘N Dubya Experience tore this country a new one has given them a nice, healthy zest for life that makes the Energizer Bunny look like a slacker. Just in time to start unloading on the new HNIC black guy in The Big Chair new Democratic President as if he was the one who lied about Weapons Of Mass Destruction, totally let Big Oil pimp out gas pumps like new blonds with boob jobs at The Chicken Ranch and ignore the signs that The Great Depression II-The Empire Strikes Back was coming at us like a runaway Mack truck on Lombard Street in San Francisco.
Didn’t hear from those dudes or the Democrats much either (more about those dooshes later) for 8 years but now they’re back and this time, it’s personal! No seriously, it’s personal. Why else would bitter sore loser former Republican Presidential candidate Grumpy The Dwarf
aka John McCain, starts sweating President Obama over frackin’ helicopters as if Obama put spinner rims and hydraulics on the bitch?
The encounter between the victor and the vanquished came at the end of a “fiscal responsibility summit” at the White House. As a ranking senator, Mr. McCain joined other lawmakers at the opening session, taking a seat in the sixth row in the East Room, where he remained silent and unacknowledged.
Mr. McCain, a stern expression fixed on his face, did not seem to be having a good time. During a smaller breakout session, an account provided by a reporter who was present noted that he “appeared irritable and close to losing his temper at one point.”
At the closing session, though, Mr. Obama called on Mr. McCain to offer any thoughts. Mr. McCain praised Mr. Obama for holding the event, then suggested one priority should be dealing with out-of-control military contracts. Exhibit A was the program to replace the current Marine One helicopters, with costs mushrooming to $11.2 billion from $6.1 billion. The Defense Science Board issued a new study blaming “poor communication” about aircraft requirements between the government and contractors. Lockheed Martin declared Monday that it was “committed to the program’s success” and would meet any conditions imposed by an Obama administration review.
“Your helicopter is now going to cost as much as Air Force One,” Mr. McCain told Mr. Obama. “I don’t think there is any more graphic demonstration of how good ideas have cost taxpayers an enormous amount of money.”
To which the President replied:
“The helicopter I have now seems perfectly adequate to me,” he said to laughter. “Of course, I’ve never had a helicopter before, you know? Maybe I’ve been deprived and I didn’t know it. “But I think it is in example of the procurement process gone amok. And we’re going to have to fix it.”
Which should make Kenan Thompson happy:
Skip to the 4:31 mark in the video.
Anyway, way to flip that nonsense, Prez. Nice try McCain, now go sit down and shut up, loser.
Now about those jag-off Democrats. Hey Dems, you see how the Republicans are all over President Obama? They are sending the big dogs after him even over sh*t he had no part of. Y’all had Dubya Bush in the cross-hairs for 8 years. You sat back on your haunches watching Dick Cheney’s puppet lying and sending Americans off to die behind those lies, ignoring dire situations here at home (hello Katrina), letting Wall Street, the Oil Industry, Major League Baseball, etc…etc…etc… to run buck fu*king wild and YOU DIDN’T EVEN COME AT HIM HALF AS HARD AS JOHN MCCAIN WENT AFTER THE PRESIDENT OVER A GAWD DAMN HELICOPTER!
Last night, I’m watching Nancy Pelosi and that chump couldn’t even get glory hound Joe Biden to stand up and take a bow when the President was giving him props:
and this is the hooker on the point of the Senate Speaker Of The House, second in the United States presidential line of succession? Please. Then you see assholes like Jesse Jackson, Jr. out there getting autographs from the President like he’s a fu*king groupie at a Debbie Gibson mall concert. Je-sus Wept!
Enough about those dickcrusts. I want them gone when their re-election bids come up. Y’all didn’t do a damn thing when you got into office and you’re really not doing a damn thing now to take on these Republican “attacks” on your President. You are out!
About last night, the President delivered his first big speech to Congress. He rolled in like a superstar (a little late–no comments about CPT, please, thank you). Man, that dude know how to work a room:
So The President went out and does what he do. Hey, you may not like the President but you gotta admit, the man gives great speech. You better bring your A-game if you’re going to follow that. The Republicans know this but, unfortunately, they can’t call on The Gipper to bring the pain:
So they have to resort to their new tactic:
Conservative Affirmative Action!
The Governor of Katrinaville (Louisiana), The Hindu Redneck, The Red States Great Brown Hope, The Right-Wing Response to the Obama Express, Piyush aka Bobby “Jingle Jingle Jangle” Jindal got the green light to open up a can on the President’s speech. Aww, snap! Bring it Piyush! Bring the pain, brother! Show’em how it’s done, baby! Yee-haw!
Let me tell you a story.
During Katrina, I visited Sheriff Harry Lee, a Democrat and a good friend of mine. When I walked into his makeshift office, I’d never seen him so angry. He was yelling into the phone: “Well, I’m the Sheriff and if you don’t like it you can come and arrest me!” I asked him: “Sheriff, what’s got you so mad?” He told me that he had put out a call for volunteers to come with their boats to rescue people who were trapped on their rooftops by the flood waters. The boats were all lined up ready to go, when some bureaucrat showed up and told them they couldn’t go out on the water unless they had proof of insurance and registration. I told him, “Sheriff, that’s ridiculous.” And before I knew it, he was yelling into the phone: “Congressman Jindal is here, and he says you can come and arrest him too!” Harry just told the boaters to ignore the bureaucrats and go start rescuing people.
Um…that’s it? Never mind the corny ass story, man, you did not use the late Sheriff Harry Lee in a feel good story, did you? The same guy who once told this story:
“If there are some young blacks driving a car late at night in a predominantly white neighborhood, they will be stopped. There’s a pretty good chance they’re up to no good. It’s obvious two young blacks driving a rinky-dink car in a predominantly white neighborhood — I’m not talking about on the main thoroughfare, but if they’re on one of the side streets and they’re cruising around — they’ll be stopped.”
Nice move, Piyush. Man, the press is gonna eat you like catfish (oh look, the results are in and guess what? Epic fail, duuuude) Wow, I don’t know what you were going for but today, the Republicans are getting nostalgic over Sarah Palin.
Welcome to the Big Leagues, playa. Sucks to be you.
