I Can't Control My Giddiness

In case you've been living under a rock, pill-popper, fat ass, and professional asshole Rush Limbaugh wants President Obama to fail:

This is his prerogative. Mr. Limbaugh is a private citizen, and I'm sure there are a lot of right-wing citizens out there that echo his sentiments. However, there is one slight problem. Rush Limbaugh seems to be the leader of the Republican party these days. In fact, whenever anybody says anything that ever so slightly strays from the drug addict's point-of-view, they rapidly beg his forgiveness and mercy. Along comes Michael Steele, or as I like to call him, God's gift to the Democratic party. Steele was recently elected the first African-American chairman of the Republican National Committee (RNC). He had the audacity to call the great Limbaugh an "entertainer" whose rants occasionally become "incendiary" and "ugly":

Ruh Roh! Of course, the next day, Steele apologized to Limbaugh, after Rush took offense to his comments during one of his rabies sessions. It gets even better, Kenneth the Page, excuse me, Bobby Jindal said on Larry King that he's glad that Steele apologize and praised Limbaugh as a great leader.

This is just too good. It's true that Limbaugh's listeners and followers are legion, but so are his detractors. Most of the American people do not agree with what Limbaugh has to say. As a result, the Republican's decision to cater to his every whim is great for the Democratic party. I'm glad that Rahm Emanuel and the Democrats seem to be making as much light of this as possible. This will only further isolate the Republican party from the American people. The isolation of the GOP can only bring about good results. Here's to Rush, and here's to the collapse of the GOP!

Oh Noes! We Must Shoot the Traitors!

Samuel "Joe the Plumber" Wurzelbacher (or as I like to call him, "Sam the unlicensed, unemployed plumber") advocates that members of Congress that "say bad things about our troops" and/or "talk treasonous talk" be shot. I really don't want to comment on this, because it's so out there that it doesn't really merit a response, but they never can come up with an example of someone who has "said something bad" about the troops. No one in Congress is suggesting that our troops are bayoneting babies in Iraq, or intentionally dropping napalm on hospitals in Afghanistan. This sort of talk is non-existent, and it's really disheartening that faux-populists like Sam the Filth are propagating these lies.

DC Voting Rights Act

Nate Silver, the star of the 2008 elections, has a great post up explaining what is likely to happen to the electoral college and the House now that DC is poised to (finally!) receive its own voting member in Congress.

Jindal the Exorcist

Max Blumenthal has a short informative article up at The Daily Beast shedding light on some of Bobby Jindal's more radical religious practices. Jindal converted to Catholicism in high school and claims to have participated in an exorcism while studying at Brown University. It's a provocative piece and well worth 5 minutes of your time.

As as a side note, I've been doing a terrible time updating this blog, so I must apologize to my thousands of dedicated followers that come to this sight everyday for my sharp wit and boyish charm. I can and will do better.
