Another Reason Why We’re In the Fix That We’re In

It’s why Harry Reid can get 53 do-nothing/done-nothing morons to sign a “we-WON’T-sign-it” letter to a GOP Congress that HAS presented plan after plan to resolve a burgeoning crisis. It’s why a Democratic Congress can sit on its ass for over two years without completing the SINGLE responsibility entrusted and defined in the Constitution, yet twiddle, fiddle and faddle away trillions of dollars that have nothing to do with the immediate lives of Americans and the state of the country in their care. It’s why a President elected with so much hopeful hoopla can turn so quickly into a truly evil charicature, but still be supported in his duplicity and hubris by his base…and by the media.

It’s because this is what they’ve thought of us all along.

Let’s just call them the “Deadbeat Party”

As I write, it’s impossible to guess how the latest made-for-TV partisan crisis in Washington will end. We’ve reached the point where the president of the United States felt he needed to deliver a prime-time speech essentially defending the post-Enlightenment values of reason, evidence and compromise against an obscurantist movement more like a religious cult than a political party.

But has President Obama got the guts to deal with the reality facing him? Signs are not encouraging. The standoff has two major components: the adolescent nihilism of the Republican right,

and the intellectual sloth of the American people.

Y’all got that?

We’re so lazily stupid, you see. We can’t be bothered by any of this, mind you, God forbid even attempt the effort to dig a little deeper than our next trip to the Piggly Wiggly and figuring out the sales tax.

The arrogance is so stunning, it’s breathtaking. Just breathtaking.

I want to go all Allen West on his ass.

And we have to take our lives back, even if it’s $917B at a time.

    major dad, that is a pretty good list…not sure I can add to it, but I will spend the rest of the day chewing on my desk in rage…then I guess drinking mouthwash, taking my sister out on a date, feeding the pigs and watching NASCAR

  9. JeffS says:

    Well, I’m certainly not going to cancel my plans to hit the range this weekend, certainly not to suck up to this cretin.

    But I will take extra ammo, and maybe a second long gun.

    Because I can.

    40 acres you say? I may need to look into that
