The Hits Keep Coming

Governor ‘Goodhair’, the reputed star of the cast for Snow Fright and the Seven Dingdongs has selected Neocon zombies, Douglas Feith and Donald Rumsfeld, as his ‘foreign policy advisors’.

NPR has a talk show on featuring one of the most annoying voices I have ever encountered – The Diane Rehm Show. Today’s topic was Zero’s ‘jobs bill’, and the only thing that made the discussion memorable was a caller named Steve from Lansing, Michigan who cut to the chase in one short question: “I would like to say that we haven’t had a tax increase in this nation in almost 12 years, so I want to know, where are the jobs?”

Then in the Local Puppy Trainer [print edition] you have a real expression of the ‘slave mentality’ of local Republicans. A guy complains about the teachers being unhappy about having their ‘step increases’ [experience pay raises] eliminated. The guy says he works for a corporation and hasn’t had a raise in three years, but he’s ‘grateful to have a job’. Excuse me, but the only reason to be ‘grateful to have a job’ would be if you weren’t qualified for the job and it was given to you as a favor – like the people who worked for the Coalition Provisional Authority in Baghdad, or many of the later hires at the Justice Department under the Hedgemony.
