You Need To See These

There are a couple of outstanding posts you need to check out. They'll get you stoked up and in fighing mode.

Dr. Zaius has an outstanding post on the all-night debate on the Democrats' attempted amendment to the defense budget bill, HR 1585, and why it was more than just political theater. See how your Senators voted, and why it Senator Reid paradoxically had to vote against it to save it.

If Zaius' account of the Republicans' blocking of the attempt to bring some accountablity to the war doesn't outrage you enough, check out Dr. Monkerstein, who has a link to a clip by Max Blumenthal, who goes from Arlington National Cemetery, where many of the dead of this awful war are buried, across the street to a hotel where bunch of Chickenhawks College Republicans are having a convention. See it if only to actually hear money laundering felon guest speaker Tom Delay make the outrageous statement that if it were not for "the 40 million murdered babies" caused by abortion, we wouldn't need illegal immigrants. The statement is so wrong on so many levels. Oh, and Blumenthal reveals the distressingly high rate of health problems among College Republicans.

Man, I sure wish I could vote for both Zaius and Monkerstein for President...

What am I talking about-- of course I can. I'm a Chicagoan. I'm allowed to vote multiple times. Even after I'm dead.

"Vote early and often." --His Honorable Mayor Richard J. Daley (Chicago, 1955-1976)

I'm sick of Republicans and conservatives. When they say something, I hit the mute button in my head the way my 92 year old grandmother turns the tv off whenever she sees the president's "rat-like face."

The only way to beat them is to squash them -- roll over them in '008 with a steamroller. It's our country -- let's take it back!

I need to check these out tonight (can't YouTube in the cube).

I couldn't watch the whole thing.
It made me physically ill.
The Young ChickenHawks spout their bullshit talking points straight from the cult Fox (Non) News just like mindless soul sucking zombies.

Thank you for the link, Johnny Yen! I wholeheartedly approve of your ability to vote multiple times, even after death. True democracy, just as god intended.

Johnny Yen said...

That is a wise grandmother you have!

I am excited by the prospect of so many people finally seeing the light about this pack of assclowns. On to '08!

They are sure to outrage.

Remember the turd-like Randy Saucier at Eastern? He was the penultimate Chickenhawk.

As they say, "It's the Chicago Way..."

Princess Banter-
Yes, pizza and corrupt politics are just some of our charms...

I think I'm with my son in supporting Obama.

I'm going to wait and take bribes before backing either candidate. I'm from Colorado, afterall.
