The Republicans can go fuck themselves. I just saw outtakes from the Sunday morning political talk shows (I can't stomach watching them in full most days), and the Republicans continue to be so one-sided and full of shit. It makes me crazy!
Between mega-asshole John Boehner (and tell me many of his issues don't stem from grade school teasing about that name, no matter how he claims it's pronounced!) and briefly-hopeful-but-going-back-to-disappointing John McCain spouting disingenuous GOP bullshit, I'm really on the verge of quite a headache.
Boehner is working on getting his don't-bother-me-with-the-facts base of voters riled by saying things like, "How can you spend hundreds of millions of dollars on contraceptives? How does that stimulate the economy?"
Translating that into the truth: now that the religious right has been kicked out of power, Medicaid family planning services are being expanded to all 50 states. Rather than be honest about it, the GOP, which chucked fiscal conservatism (about their only saving grace) out the window years ago, is making it sound like good, hard-working taxpayers are subsidizing irresponsible sex-obsessed poor minorities and immigrants or words to that effect. Assholes!
And John McCain? Mr. Bipartisan won't support President Obama's economic stimulus proposal unless it makes the Bush tax cuts permanent. Hey, Senator McCain, you're a transparent phony!
We're not rich, but we're solidly middle class (maybe a little better than average), and I think we do well enough to benefit from those tax cuts. But John McCain and his buddies can shove the tax cuts up their rich asses! There are millions of people worse off than us, and they need the help far more than we and the people economically better off than us. These Republicans are so transparent and ethically challenged! Have they no shame?
I thought I'd feel better after venting on here, but I'm still angry. I think I'll go send some e-mails to the President, as well as McCain and Boehner. That should help!
