Political Mix

So the President is out and about still trying to convince people he is actually to the left of Genghis Khan on the political spectrum by appearing on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and talking to “progressive bloggers” at the White House.

Duncan was so impressed that he posted a link to the “official transcript” and is generally in no comment mode.

They knew better than to invite Susie Madrak this time. Barbara Morrill [BarbinMD] of DKos was the representative voice for the majority of Americans, and the majority of voters, i.e. women. Oliver Willis got the minority slot, Joe Sudbay of AMERICAblog was there for the LGBT community, John Amato of Crooks & Liars and Duncan Black [Atrios] finished up the group. They had to punch their “diversity ticket”.

I wonder if the White House will ever understand that they don’t have a marketing problem, they have a lousy “product”?

After reading about the latest atrocities committed by the Teapartiers, and the candidates they support, it occurred to me that they need a new name. Teabaggers has worn out its welcome, so how about something that reflects the reality that they were suckered by the Koch brothers… just a thought. The MSM probably wouldn’t use it. 😈

Well, how about “The Koch Baggers?”

They’ve been serviced by the Koch brothers the way a mare has been serviced by a stallion, yet their apparent response is to say “thank you sir, give me more!” while bent over with cheeks spread wide. I can think of a name or two for that, but none safe for a family endeavor like the MSM :).

Close, but a different target in that area, Rook.

[OT – glad your Dad is doing better. Something happened to my account at your site, so I can’t leave comments.]

It is truly amazing to watch them, Badtux. I’m starting to understand the process in Germany after World War I, something that never made sense to me – how educated, reasonable people could go so wrong. They are even using the same anti-commie propaganda.

No one else has said it so I guess it is up to me. Though the MSM won’t use it the perfect name for them is “Koch Suckers”. I think that is what you had in mind Bryan but were too much of a gentleman to use it. I apologize to the ladies that may stop in here in advance. You will have to forgive me since every once in a while the “old sailor” pops up.

You don’t have to apologize to me, sweetheart.

I think it’s dead-on.

We can blame on our intel training, Fallenmonk.

Gee, Suzan, people will think you don’t like gangs that stomp on people’s heads for disagreeing with them. 😉
