Hi and welcome to another Sunday's review of the hilarious hijinks of our esteemed minority party.
This week's hi-lights include the rebuttal speech given by Louisiana Governor Booby Jindal, I mean Bobby Jindal. The comparison was made to Mr. Rogers ( the namesake of this blog) and the usher guy on some TV show I don't watch. Either way, if you were witness to Jindal's speech you know it was a hoot. He admitted how crummy the Republicans had been when in power, how they failed at helping during Katrina after first letting us get to know him with some homey crap about his Dad. It was a transparent and obvious campaign pitch with no relevance to what his supposed purpose in speaking and appearance to a national audience was about. One could almost see Rude Limburger's hand up his butt moving the puppet. LOL LOL LOL
In a side note, the Republican conservative wing (is there any other?) had it's annual CPAC conference in which the most popular speakers were Rust Limpdicker, a thirteen year old boy and Newt Gingrich; I kid you not. The only thing missing were Swastikas and armbands. Hardee Har Har You can see clips on the Daily show and Huffington Post if you need a chuckle.
Uncovered this week by Crooks and Liars was the amazing coincidence that Rick Santelli's rant at the Chicago market was planned and orchestrated with guidance from a network of Republican backed organizations funded by the mega creep Koch and family. These folks have more money than God, are potentially more evil than Satan and are connected to the coming onslaught of industry lobbying, PR and media manipulation and general bullshit that will be unleashed to weaken the budget and funding plans of the Obama administration. The smoking gun in all this is that the Chicago Tea Party web site was created in August of last year. (What, do the Republicans have a time machine?)
If you've read David Baldacci's book, The Whole Truth, where a sophisticated scheme is used to change and manipulate puplic opinion and then public policy, you have a sense of what is about to happen. Substitute the Koch Family for the novel's Nicholas Creel and you've got it. It is apparent that reality has long imitated fiction where advertising and media are involved. I wish this were funnier, but the reality of the money about to be spent to impede correcting our nations problems is ridiculous. Millions upon millions will be spent by the wealthy interests in our nation in the coming days, weeks and months in support of both overt and covert actions. The humor here is how many Americans will buy into the the shoveled crap emerging from the Republican PR machine. Ha Ha Ha, I guess.......
It's only funny in a sick ironic way when you consider how much good the money could do for those in need. Instead it will be used to advance the agenda of those who need nothing but crave more anyway. That's worth at least a Tee Hee HeeI
I almost forgot the Congressional debate on the interstate transfer of Monkeys. Yes, I'm telling the truth on this one too. You can view excerpts on the Daily Show. Now that truly is funny. With all the nation's ills and the need for speedy action on solving them, our nations house of Representatives found time to not only consider this urgent piece of legislation, but debate it as well. LLLLLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL
