Mega Dittos, Shit Heads!

I'm sitting down for my 5 min dinner break here at work. That means I gulp down a shitty low-cal frozen dinner (heated up of course) and entertain you guys with a blog. You can skip it if you want, it's just my usual political rant -

How's this for irony - I was listening to my pal Rush Dimbulb on the radio today and I actually heard him yell "It's not Washington's fault!" in reference to the government’s incredibly inept and disastrous response to Hurricane Katrina. That's right, folks, seems like Rush's main job these days is to defend the federal government. Oh how the times have changed!

I used to get a kick out of Rush during the last administration when he would make fun of Bill Clinton’s foibles. (Note that, in hindsight, there was some irony involved there as well since a lot of Clinton's problems were personal in nature and here was a wife swapping, pill popping, doctor shopping degenerate making hay of them. I guess it really takes one to know one).

But I still liked the fact that people got on Clinton and questioned everything he did. We need that in a democracy. Our leaders need to be examined, questioned, and probed (to the tune of over $40 million of your tax dollars in Bubba’s case) and never, ever given a free pass. In those days, Rush and his ilk hated the gumint and wanted desperately to limit it.

Fast forward to today. Now the Republicans control the entire federal government. So I guess that makes gumint good and pretty much without limitation (e.g. Patriot Act). It also seems it should be considered infallible. If you dare to question the gumint, you are branded unpatriotic or even worse, a "liberal" (queue chorus of boos). North Korea would be proud to have government propagandists working for them as good as Rush Dimbulb.

And then there is the main stream press that the right wing dubs the "liberal media." From listening to the "liberal media," I have figured out that that term means any media outlet that doesn't toe the government’s propaganda line. Actually, the main stream press until recently was so timid that it was doing almost as much a disservice to democracy as the right-wing shit bags. Hey, we need a free press. Sorry if that means your little hero W might get criticized. Too fucking bad.

I will just lay back and enjoy listening to “El Rushbo” as he blames state and local governments and sings the praises of federal government. Wow, what a turn around.

Thats enough for now. Have a fun weekend. Go Sox!

A very good point. The more you repeat yourself and bitch and whine about Bush, the more he's likely to pay attention and listen to what you go on and on about in an online blog that four people read.

4 people! More like 2. And you are the only one who gets worked up about them. Jesus, you need to get a life or something. Anything to get your mind off my blogs.

Aw, come on! Sure, I need to get a life (is your company hiring? We can continue our witty exchanges while I sweep the floors around you), but you can't ask me to stop reading the blogs. They're on my must-read list.
If I stopped checking your blog, your readership would be cut in half.
To quote you, in a recent exchange, "Lighten up!"

Wake has already had a career-high 12 strikeouts. It's a good day, Bobert. Turn that frown upside-down!

Wake rules. But he lost. To a guy who is uglier than the wart on a cunt of a leprosy stricken manatee.

I know, it sucks. If there was any justice in this world ...

But no.
