The Watering Hole; Friday March 4 2016; Political Contrasts: D. v. R.

I ran across this video of Al Franken speaking in/to the Senate on the Republican refusal to even consider an Obama SCOTUS nominee. Franken does an extremely fine job of taking them to task, of summarizing all the reasons their obstructionist reaction is full of nonsensical crap. Makes me wish Franken was speaking from the Oval Office! The clip is a little more than thirteen minutes in length, but doesn’t seem that long (not like if it was a Republican speaking, i.o.w.πŸ™‚ )

Meanwhile, from the opposite side of the political coin comes this li’l tidbit courtesy of Ted Cruz (not a video, thank all gods, simply a link in which the title is a more than adequate summary of the content):

Ted Cruz: God wants the other candidates to drop out

There. Contrast. Politics. Sanity v. Insanity. Democrat v. Republican. The contrasts implicit in Up v. Down and/or Day v. Night pale in comparison!

And in closing, a historical summary of the crap Franken valiantly attempts to confront — aka the crap which drives each and every shred of today’s GOP:

β€œThe extortions and oppressions of government will go on so long as
such bare fraudulence deceives and disarms the victims – so long as they
are ready to swallow the immemorial official theory that protesting against
the stealings of the archbishop’s secretary’s nephew’s mistress’ illegitimate son
is a sin against the Holy Ghost.”
(H. L. Mencken)

Amen. It is written.

  1. This man has words and he uses words.
    Words in sentences.
    Let’s give him the nuclear codes to our arsenal and sleep well at night.

    I’m moving to Australia if he gets any closer to the Whitehouse.

  2. Phyllis Schlafly: Donald Trump Smells Like Ronald Reagan

    In an interview earlier this week with Alex Jones of InfoWars, Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly lavished praise on GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump.

    β€œDoes he smell like Reagan to you?” Jones asked.

    β€œYes he does,” Schlafly said. β€œHe’s just a guy who is not intimidated by the establishment and we like that. I like him especially because he made immigration the top issue, and nobody else wanted to talk about it except Ann Coulter.”

    Small hands. Ewwww.

    • Thanks Obama!

      That was me expressing sarcasm as I fart in the general direction of the republican party nutso xtian birther flat earth skeptics of science.
      Science is not a belief.
      Sky fairies are a belief.
      We went to the moon.
      We will go to mars.
      And technology will advance and some people will become smarter and some people will remain where they are.

  3. I’m heading out for an evening of drunken debauchery but I was thinking of music night and realized that there is one song that would be perfect for Trumpy’s theme song. It’s rather a ragged version but it importantly changes “you should go to Hell” to “I am going to Hell”.

    Cheers!

    • Enjoy your night Pete. I’ve been thinking Drumpf’s (German translation: small hands) theme song could be: My dick’s bigger than your dick, my dick’s bigger that your’s, my dick’s bigger than your dick bigger than, my dick’s bigger than your’s. It seems appropriate juvenile enough for the Donald.
