Republican Response to the President's Speech

Who knew the Republican's platform went all the way back to Roman times?

Locking the dogs? Well, that's one way to put it!

I just read this article this morning:

Yup. That's about right.

That article disgusts me, but it reflects far worse on Congress than it does the President. It’s been clear for some time that the Republicans think tanking the economy and the country is a small price in order to thwart Obama and take back the presidency. They have zero interest in fixing anything until 2013.

They will block everything Obama tries to do and then claim that he accomplished nothing. And the sad thing is that so many people will buy it.

Trying to get caught up on blog posts after more than a week of not having a computer, only to find my sound isn't working--and three of your last posts are videos. You're killing me here... (FYI--Roman mimes pretty much suck.)

Senator: "Roman Senate, are we to continue building palaces for us, or instead build quality, low-cost housing for the poor? What say you?"

Senate: "Fuck the poor!"

Senator: "Good."

So guess who's dutifully accompanying her mother to a Women's Republican Club luncheon next Wednesday? WHILST SEVEN AND ONE-HALF MONTHS PREGNANT?

And guess who can't even get stinking drunk and make the whole thing just the teensy-tiniest bit more tolerable?

Guess who better have a guaranteed spot in heaven thanks to this bullshit?

Mrs. Bachelor Girl,
You WILL have a guaranteed spot. The Republicans are the only ones with the inside track to The Lord. Just ask them…

OK, I had to follow up and tell you that the WRC luncheon ended up being downright pleasant. The food was good, and the speaker was the (female) deputy whatchamacallit for the Louisiana Department of Agriculture, and she was actually very interesting - and bipartisan, if you can believe it.

I only rolled my eyes when the president of the club introduced the Eastern Orthodox (!) priest who led the invocation (because of course there was an invocation). She actually said, as if it's some heroic feat, "He has spoken with Muslims!"

I leaned over to my mom and said, "I've spoken with Muslims, too. Can I have a cookie?"

Oh, and the parking lot was alarmingly full of luxury cars. But other than that.
