You know what's worse than a scumbag wingnut? A lying scumbag wingnut. Calling a fellow lawmaker a "baby killer" is bad, but trying to say that it wasn't meant for him but the bill he supported, is almost as despicable.
But such was the vitriol coming from Washington last night. The veins were popping from the those wingnuts as it looked more and more like Fatso will have to find another country to fill his illegal prescriptions. Did you see John Boehner crying? I swear his tan was about to come off. What a joke.
“Can you go home and tell your senior citizens that these cuts in Medicare will not limit their access to doctors or further weaken the program instead of strengthening it? No, you can not,” Boehner said. “And look at how this bill was written. Can you say it was done openly, with transparency and accountability without backroom deals struck behind closed doors, hidden from the people? Hell, no you can’t.”
Hey Tan-Man, I know what I can tell you; and that is that you and those insurance companies who have you and your cronies in their pockets do not represent "the people". News flash for you wingnut: nothing limits" access to doctors" like a lack of money.
So anyway, it looks likes it's not quite over, as there are still some procedural games to play. Take heart wingnuts, there is still hope. If the bill does pass and becomes law, you can run on repealing that bad boy come the next election cycle. But be careful, don't overplay your hand, because the A-merry-can people just might start to realize that his O ness isn't really a Socialist after all, and this health care reform thing just might work out. Talk about all your eggs in one basket, you repubs sure know how to go all in.
Speaking of wingnuts going all in: Seems that this conservative blogger has called for the assassination of his O ness in a tweet:
"We'll surely get over a bullet 2 Barack Obama's head!" There's more and it gets worse: "the next American with a clear shot, should drop Obama like a bad habit. Forget blacks or his claim to be black."
Oh, did I mention that this slave catcher is black? [Shout out to Lynne for this story.] Memo to black conservatives: I know you really want to impress your white conservative friends. So you have to be really over the top and do shit to get in their good graces. But enough already. We get it. You are black, but that doesn't mean that you support Obama. Good for you, you are entitled to your opinion. But don't let your wingnut friends continue to make fools of you. Frankly, the shit is embarrassing.
