You've Got to Be Kidding...

11:42 AM

Spinning WheelI damn near blew a gasket this morning after I read about GOP concerns about the cost of disaster relief. According to this Chicago Tribune article some Republicans are against adding the cost of disaster relief to the federal deficit for future generations to pay. Excuse me? Apparently it's okay for the President to rope future generations into paying billions every year for Iraq's infrastructure (which to date is frail at best), but helping the poor in New Orleans is unacceptable. Where do they find this pond scum purporting to be human? These guys are beginning to sound more like a bunch of drunken yahoos who only care about citizens with fundraising capability.

In stark contrast, we have the junior Senator from Illinois, Mr. Barak Obama, who has put forward an articulate interpretation of the Administration's attitude towards this entire affair. If Kanye had more common sense than fashion sense, he would have put it the way Obama did on This Week with George Stephanopoulos. You can read the quote here.

Now, back to the absurd. Is there anything more slimy and disconcerting than Pat Robertson? If you don't think so perhaps you should read this article. In it you will find that even in moments of dire need and immense tragedy the GOP and people like Robertson continue to try to create publicity and wealth for themselves. This is pathetic—worse than even his diamond scamming days—and should be exposed, and shouted from the rooftops. Pat Robertson is the devil, and he ain't even disguised.

On a lighter note, I was happy to read that the town of Fucking, Austria has finally managed to solve the problem of stolen signs. You can read the article here.

Since I'm feeling generous today, I'll throw in this neat article about the breakdown of the Bush spin machine. Enjoy!
