My Weekly Cliff's Corner Column If You Missed It:
The Week That Was 8/17/07
Another Week. More preposterousness to report.
Run! Run for the hills! That is what several Republican Beltway denizens have chosen to do instead of facing the people--in the form of voters at a ballot box or members of a potential jury pool--with the recent mass exodus from all ranks of that risible, rotten political party once known as "The Party Of Lincoln," which might today more appropriately be called The Party of Lincoln, Nebraska.
Actually they'll probably lose there too.
And how is it that these Coitus Interrupters get to go on their merry way while we continually get screwed like a non-ambulatory hooker within 20 feet of David Vitter? That's the system baby.
Denny Hastert, who when not downing a box of glazed munchkins likes to cover up for pedophiles, Deborah Pryce who happily joined the Tom DeLay's leadership team, which thought of ways to launder cash that would stun Ferdinand Marcos, and now even Rep. Chip Pickering of Mississippi, are now all exiting stage right-wing nutjob.
That was just who we found out about this week. We've known for a while that waste-of-oxygen Wayne Allard was leaving the Senate and were told a few weeks ago about Ray LaHood, whose last name is quite fitting for a party who will soon have more members in the Big House than the Gambino family.
Rumors are abound that many others such as Senator John Warner will find a reason to go fishing. Altough perhaps one individual who hasn't signaled any desire to retire, who should perhaps think about it, is Susan Collins.
She has a blogger on her team whose cerebral infrastructure resembles New York after a rainstorm and she can't stop lying about her positions on Iraq and choice. Oh and sepaking of "infrastructure"--mines in Utah and West Virginia, a bridge in Minnesota, levees in New Orleans. Does anyone still think President Bush and the rest of these GOP morally-inept cockspurs will "protect" us?
These guys would have been on top of the Great Wall of China mocking Genghis Khan. Or spending an hour and a half at Ground Zero between cocktail parties and then insulting those who were sickened because YOU kept them there without the proper protective gear.
Hell, this President can't even protect his daughter from marrying a world-class wanker. Perhaps this would help clarify things.
