Wow


 
Wow.  Yay.  She looks amazing.


Also?  You suck, Republicans. 

And in the spirit of her return: I'm not going to call the Republicans economic terrorists or country hostage-takers.

Crazy and need to be voted out next year?   YES.


Never seen so many republicans want to emulate California so much -- balanced budget amendment?  Seriously?  You guys are nuts.  My grandfather (raised since the age of 6 months in CA), formerly die-hard republican, now a staunch Democrat (he switched a few years ago -- in his 80s!) is LOVING going around a telling people EVEN REAGAN RAISED TAXES, YOU IDIOTS. 

Is there a Schoolhouse Rock episode that covered the budget?  Or general economics?  Or can I just send my first-year econ textbook (enjoyable also because it makes fun of the Laffer Curve -- meaning republicans would read it and go LIES!  DROWN THE WITCH!)

Fuck you, republicans.  Fuck you for playing chicken with our lives.  

THIS is what happens when you vote for people who say "Government is the problem, not the solution."  That the "scariest words in the English language are 'I'm from the government and I'm here to help.'"  or WHO WANT TO DROWN GOVERNMENT IN A BATHTUB.

ALSO?  Fuck you, press, FOR NOT DOING YOUR DAMN JOB AND TELLING THE VOTING PUBLIC WHAT THESE IDIOTS WERE PLANNING ON DOING.  OR ARE DOING AT THE PRESENT MOMENT.   "Republicans say eating shrapnel is healthy, Democrats disagree" IS NOT THE WAY TO DO IT.

(I know I've been AWOL -- but I have some news!  and I'll be back soon!)

I dont know about Schoolhouse Rock, but there's a West Wing for everything. :-)

It's kind of eerie, you know? Japan sinking into the sea, worldwide depression, debt ceiling...which can only mean one thing.

The entire world is just acting out West Wing episodes, minus anyone having any balls. Proof: Obama's SOTU, in which he used the "he shall, from time to time" line.

Which can only mean that in 2016, Allison Janney will announce she's running for president and my life will be complete.

well hello there :] i've been as bad an ljer as you lately ;p it's a double edge sword that has brought you to post, no? le sigh. the current state of 'politics' in the u.s. is disheartening in all regards. really, though, what's truly pitiful and painful to watch is that there no longer seems to be a democratic party, not one with the ideals that it should expound, anymore. there's a great article that i read about it and obama here: http://www.commondreams.org/view/2011/07/29-4#.TjTUAMzABlM.facebook people are so ignorant to how we are all indebted to the state on so many levels and like lambs to slaughter buy into republican fiscal bullshit. it's just a big fucking debbie downer. in OTHER news, have you seen masterpiece mystery (pbs) sherlock holmes? the new one. it's fucking amazing.

My friend was in the gallery when GG came in. I'm sort of ferociously jealous, except I'm not sure I would have had the ability had I been there to keep from leaping across the room like one of those Twilight cretins and tackling John Boehner while howling "Reagan is rolling over in his grave and it's your fault and I HOPE HE HAUNTS YOU IN THE BATHROOM and HOW THE HELL IS A SUPER FUCKING CONGRESS SMALL GOVERNMENT YOU INSANE HUMAN PARKING CONE?"

Ahem. I had to shut off CNN and CSPAN as I was beginning to foam at the mouth.
