Teabaggers Infect Maine GOP

Teabaggers are on the march in Maine! It seems the Maine GOP recently voted to update its old state party platform with a bunch of raving loon tea party gibberish.

The document calls for the elimination of the Department of Education and the Federal Reserve, demands an investigation of “collusion between government and industry in the global warming myth,” suggests the adoption of “Austrian Economics,” declares that “‘Freedom of Religion’ does not mean ‘freedom from religion'” (which I guess makes atheism illegal), insists that “healthcare is not a right,” calls for the abrogation of the “UN Treaty on Rights of the Child” and the “Law Of The Sea Treaty” and declares that we must resist “efforts to create a one world government.”

It also contains favorable mentions of both the Tea Party and Ron Paul. You can read the whole thing here.

Dan Billings, who has served as an attorney for the Maine GOP, called the new platform “wack job pablum” and “nutcase stuff.”

Despite the document’s crazy content, Maine Republican Party Chair Charlie Webster insisted to the AP that all of the elements in the platform are things that Republicans support. He claimed to the Press Herald that these issues reflect the values of working-class Mainers.

Every time I hear stuff like this, I’m reminded of this classic post, likening the conservative “Movement” to a “controlling parasite astride its enfeebled Republican host”.  And since true symbiotic relationships are the exception rather than the norm, it is only a matter of time before the enfeebled host is destroyed.  In the meantime, we can expect to see more delightful stories like this one:

The Republican State Convention was held at the Portland Exposition Building, which is on Park Avenue, near the middle school. Party members from Knox County caucused in a classroom used by eighth-grade social studies teacher Paul Clifford.

When Clifford returned to school on Monday, he found that a favorite poster about the U.S. labor movement had been taken and replaced with a bumper sticker that read, “Working People Vote Republican.”

Later, Clifford learned that his classroom had been searched. Republicans who had attended the convention called Principal Mike McCarthy to complain about “anti-American” things they saw there, including a closed box containing copies of the U.S. Constitution that were published by the American Civil Liberties Union.

This story is only shocking until you realize that the actual REPUBLICAN PARTY PLATFORM calls for eliminating the Dept of Education.  They hate public schools!  Why not trash the social studies classroom? God forbid our children learn about the Constitution.

These people are scum.

The Nuclear Hypocrilypse

Of course the douchebag pundits from Hannity on Fox to Lawrence O’Donnel on MSNBC have been claiming for the last year that reconcilation couldn’t be used to pass the health care bill. Here is a sensible article on the perfectly legitimate use of the procedure and the usual antics from the lying hypocrites on the Republican side.

Furthermore, the douchebag lying assholes on Fake News, never dissapoint…

When Jesus spoke of the “yeast of the Pharisees” he was talking about Fake News, they are the yeast, that spreads the filthy mold of ignorance and dishonesty, so putrid that it even invades the hearts and minds of simple hard working working folks, turning them into a filthy pile of American ignorance.

Franken v. Thune

Here is some quality Senatorialization on the part of Al Franken today….  As you watch this, keep in mind that Sen. Thune is being groomed as the Republican Obama of 2012 – the young, handsome senator with no record and no baggage, on whose persona the teabaggers of America can project all their hopes and dreams…

Republican congressmen are worthless.  Smack ’em down!

They Surround Us (A Few Snack Crackers)

In case anybody neglected to attend their State Fair this summer, here’s a little taste of the great american freakshow…

George W. famously joked that we are a country of haves and have-mores.  A rare moment of honesty to be sure, but a lie of omission nonetheless: he left out the have-nots and, increasingly, the half-nuts.  The poor dupes in the video above all think Big Guvmint is coming to take their precious crumbs away. Most of these people live on the ass rim of the economic spectrum. Yet when presented with a reform effort that could actually do them some good, they lose their damn minds. To quote the Boss: “end up like a dog that’s been beat too much, til you spend half your life just a-covering up”.  Matt Taibbi calls it the “peasant mentality” (from a post that I have surely linked to before).  At the time he wrote this the corporate masters were trying to cajole these people into opposing executive compensation limits, but opposition to health care reform is the more natural vehicle for their vicious, self-denying ways:

After all, the reason the winger crowd can’t find a way to be coherently angry right now is because this country has no healthy avenues for genuine populist outrage. It never has. The setup always goes the other way: when the excesses of business interests and their political proteges in Washington leave the regular guy broke and screwed, the response is always for the lower and middle classes to split down the middle and find reasons to get pissed off not at their greedy bosses but at each other. That’s why even people like Beck’s audience, who I’d wager are mostly lower-income people, can’t imagine themselves protesting against the Wall Street barons who in actuality are the ones who fucked them over. Beck pointedly compared the AIG protesters to Bolsheviks: “[The Communists] basically said ‘Eat the rich, they did this to you, get ‘em, kill ‘em!’” He then said the AIG and G20 protesters were identical: “It’s a different style, but the sentiments are exactly the same: Find ‘em, get ‘em, kill ‘em!’” Beck has an audience that’s been trained that the rich are not appropriate targets for anger, unless of course they’re Hollywood liberals, or George Soros, or in some other way linked to some acceptable class of villain, to liberals, immigrants, atheists, etc. — Ted Turner, say, married to Jane Fonda.

But actual rich people can’t ever be the target. It’s a classic peasant mentality: going into fits of groveling and bowing whenever the master’s carriage rides by, then fuming against the Turks in Crimea or the Jews in the Pale or whoever after spending fifteen hard hours in the fields. You know you’re a peasant when you worship the very people who are right now, this minute, conning you and taking your shit. Whatever the master does, you’re on board. When you get frisky, he sticks a big cross in the middle of your village, and you spend the rest of your life praying to it with big googly eyes. Or he puts out newspapers full of innuendo about this or that faraway group and you immediately salute and rush off to join the hate squad. A good peasant is loyal, simpleminded, and full of misdirected anger. And that’s what we’ve got now, a lot of misdirected anger searching around for a non-target to mis-punish… can’t be mad at AIG, can’t be mad at Citi or Goldman Sachs. The real villains have to be the anti-AIG protesters! After all, those people earned those bonuses! If ever there was a textbook case of peasant thinking, it’s struggling middle-class Americans burned up in defense of taxpayer-funded bonuses to millionaires. It’s really weird stuff. And bound to get weirder, I imagine, as this crisis gets worse and more complicated.

And because my Daily Links have been hijacked by some paintballing virus, I will go ahead and link to this groovy Q & A with Douglas Rushkoff which I heartily recommend, talking about the historical roots of corporatism.  (I predict Thom Hartmann fans will approve).  The discussion is not about the half-nuts per se, but their participation in the corporate-media-consumofest is implicit.  Read the whole thing, I say!

What in the name of God is wrong with these people?

If you haven’t already seen this, really absorb it….but it is just the prelude…Phase 1 of the brainwashing strategy – “Obama is not one of us.”

Moving on to Phase 2 of the brainwashing strategy – “Lie about what Obama is trying to do, in a truly frightening way.”

‘The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama’s “death panel” so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their “level of productivity in society,” whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil.’

Talk about downright evil. Sara Palin is beyond the pale. She is a walking talking sack of shit and is leading the way promoting pure bullshit. Taking advantage of people who are already so brainwashed and stupid that they would believe this crap. These idiots are so obsessed with demonizing Obama, that a 28 percent of these senile dingbats believe that Obama is not a citizen.

And finally Phase 3 – “When someone tries to correct the lies, do not listen to what they have to say and shout so they can’t even be heard.”

Insert here some notorius videos of jackass jerks at town hall meetings on Healthcare….I’ll leave that to the comments, as I need to get to work, but I needed a quick venting and the summertime ATH needed a little something.

The Yeast of the Pharisees

It may not be my decision to cast them into the fiery pit, but I think that chances are every single damned one of these conservative talk cry-babies who keeps blocking our country from making the logical step forward is going to the deepest part of hell that you can imagine. They are hurting people. They are profiting from it. They are the “the yeast of the Pharisees” spreading their bacteria, multiplying this demented pile of scum that is so retarded, so arrogant that they suck up to the private healthcare leeches that are sucking us dry. Sucking us DRY!

So here’s a shot of penicilin, coming right at you from all the hypocrisy. Listen to this evil, evil, man who calls himself Glenn Beck. He is off his rocker, and just imagine the pathetic dimwits who have been infected by his yeast, just imagine how messed up in the head they are.

Listen to the Hitler-style maniacal yelling and realize this man Beck is using the same bag of tricks. Understand that the human brain is wired for stories, not facts…at one point Beck says…”where do you read in the story that…” Stories, not facts. Its a freak show.

The Mayor’s Final Presser

Big can of crazy…

I’m guessing it’s the National Enquirer sex scandal stuff about to be verified, but I’m cynical like that.

One thing I can’t help keeping in mind, this person who is the darling of the GOP, who everybody wants to see run for prez in a few years, was quite simply the mayor of a tiny Alaskan town not two years ago.  She has no business on the national stage, at least not as a credible chief executive.  On the other hand, if she wants to fulfill her destiny as the teevee love child of Oprah and Glenn Beck, I say have at it.

Hopelessly impossible lightening strikes

Because we all need more romance in our lives…  Here’s a selection from the love letters of South Carolina’s governor laureate, Mark Sanford, to his Argentinian mistress:

Two, mutual feelings …. You have a particular grace and calm that I adore. You have a level of sophistication that so fitting with your beauty. I could digress and say that you have the ability to give magnificent gentle kisses, or that I love your tan lines or that I love the curve of your hips, the erotic beauty of you holding yourself (or two magnificent parts of yourself) in the faded glow of the night’s light – but hey, that would be going into sexual details …

Three and finally, while all the things above are all too true – at the same time we are in a hopelessly – or as you put it impossible – or how about combine and simply say hopelessly impossible situation of love. How in the world this lightening strike snuck up on us I am still not quite sure. As I have said to you before I certainly had a special feeling about you from the first time we met, but these feelings were contained and I genuinely enjoyed our special friendship and the comparing of all too many personal notes …

Lastly I also suspect I feel a little vulnerable because this is ground I have never certainly never covered before – so if you have pearls of wisdom on how we figure all this out please let me know… In the meantime please sleep soundly knowing that despite the best efforts of my head my heart cries out for you, your voice, your body, the touch of your lips, the touch of your finger tips and an even deeper connection to your soul.

That’s good stuff, I say!  Who says southern gentility is dead?

After his performance at the press conference today, I’m beginning to suspect Sanford is a political genius.  He just raised his national visibility in a huge way, he’s cornered the Clinton adultery vote (but in a way that demonstrates to women he’s not just in it for the punani), while simultaneously courting the Latin vote.  If “Maria” turns out to be a fox, all bets are off for the presidency in 2012.

P.S.  The local newspaper claims they had these emails since December.  While the more recently disgraced governors of New York and Illinois were brought down by simple wiretaps on the part of the Feds (curious that they just so happened to be monitoring the governors representing Clinton and Obama’s home states during an election year, eh?), there is no such thing as privileged communication these days.  One must assume that everything you say, write, or fart has already been heard, read, or sniffed by the prying ears, eyes, and noses of someone other than the intended recipient.  (And yes, I target my farts.)

The American Taliban

The American Taliban is at it again. They burnt down a topless coffee shop in a small town in Northern Maine.

They have been responsible for countless acts of violence in addition to the recent dramatic murder at a church ceremony. Interesting to go through the list of these acts of violence on wiki, and see how many occur in the U.S. compared to other countries.

I can only assume that there is something uniquely special about America’s ability to produce these sorts of terrorist groups. These groups openly proclaim their support of terrorist acts. Why? I guess the common thread between the burning of a topless coffee shop and the anti-choice crowd, is a deep seeded fear that some people out there may be enjoying sex. Somehow in America we have simultaneously developed the ability to develop a very slutty and sexually promiscuous and all around perverted group of folks, along with a group of folks who probably don’t even know how to operate the clitoris. And somewhere in the middle are folks like me, who could appreciate a topless coffee shop, and at the same time maintain a healthy and sex life with my wife…as long as I can stay out of the dog house…but I digress.

The point is these morons are scared shitless of people, especially women, enjoying sex, and they are usually the same freaks trying to get it on in the airport bathroom with some hot and heavy foot-tapping. I really hate these stupid hypocrites.

At least we can hope that their violent stupidity will backfire. All it took was a tent and a generator and the coffee shop is back up and running. I am looking into how to donate money to this coffee and titty operation. With coffee and titties, I believe we can change the world for the better.
