Jobs Bill Passes Senate With Help From Republican Hypocrites

24 Feb in Congress, Politics, Republicans

In the midst of 9+% unemployment, the minority Gestapo had the temerity to mount a filibuster against a jobs bill that was mostly tax cuts – the very same words that hypocrite Sarah Palin had written on her hand! These sick old white men are so hell-bent on petulant obstructionism that they would even vote against their own signature issue.  That is, until … gasp, the Republican Messiah and embodied proof of the impending 2010 Tsunami traitorous liberal scumbag Scott Brown decided to cross ranks with the GOP caucus and cast a vote in line with his own politics. 

Seriously though, send the kids out of the room and go check out what his flock are saying about him on Facebook.  Yowza.  But wait,  there’s more …

After squeaking with 62 votes for cloture, the bill passed today by a margin of 70 to 28.  Now I’m no mathematician, but even with the 2 absentees from Monday, that makes 6 Republican hypocrites who tried to stop the vote from happening at all and then voted to pass the bill anyway - Alexander (TN), Cochran (MS), Lemieux (FL), Murkowski (AK), Wicker (MS), and, of course, Inhofe (OK).  Seriously … this  must be a previously undiscovered apex of douche-baggery.

Protest music seemed to be making a bit of a comeback during the dark era of King George the W but has since sputtered off. Nice to see people trying to keep it alive ...

Nona Hendryx Rocks Limbaugh to Help Haiti

Acclaimed Singer-Songwriter Nona Hendryx has stood up to Limbaugh on her new project
"The Ballad of Rush Limbaugh", to raise money for Haiti Relief.

Nona was outraged at Rush Limbaugh’s recent insensitive and hateful remarks after the catastrophe in Haiti. With a long history of writing edgy, provocative and often political leaning songs she decided to strike back. “I’ve been so pissed off with Rush Limbaugh (for a long time) and his insensitive, racist commentary,” she says. “The final straw was his ill chosen or mean/hateful comments about American relief efforts for Haiti. So instead of just fuming and ranting myself, I wrote a song.”
Felicia Collins, the guitarist for David Letterman’s house band, joins Hendryx on guitar.

The result is “The Ballad of Rush Limbaugh”.
