RuPaul to Michele Bachmann: “I’ve just one thing to say…YOU’D BETTER WORK”

Old FruitfliesMichele Bachmann (R-MN) has opened her mouth and said something completely moronic…again. This time she isn’t groping GW Bush and hoping to swap some spit with him. Nor has she shown up with her gay fabulous husband at the I-35W bridge to laugh at the dead Minnesotans who’s bodies are rotting on the riverbed floor.

This time she’s insulted every citizen in Minnesota by jumping into the promotion of a bill called “The Middle Class Protection Act“. It’s a bill that doesn’t protect the middle class at all. In fact, the Middle Class isn’t even an equation in the bill at all! It’s a bill that cuts corporate taxes by 25%.

HA! “When was the last time the Middle Class saw a 25% tax cut, Ms. Former Tax Attorney?”

vomitBachmann will vote against Minnesota’s kids to get health care and she’ll give away 25% tax cuts for businesses… With a Congresscritter like that, who needs terrorists?! We’re already voting them in to office!

But Buchmann shows about as concerned about the Middle Class as she is about her husband’s missing ball-gag.

Thrilled by her narcissistic “brilliance”, Bachmann decides to brag it up about her new bill at a pres conference. (She’s not only counting big corporate donations to her campaign, ya know!). In front of hundreds of flashing bulbs and the dank odor of Old Spice coming from her audience, Bachmann smiles brightly and clears her throat. She grabs the the microphone, exactly like her husband taught her… A firm grip at the base, not so hard at the end…She pulls out the wad of Bazooka Joe that’s in her mouth and says:housefly

“I am so proud to be from the state of Minnesota,” Bachmann said at a press conference today. “We’re the workingest state in the country, and the reason why we are, we have more people that are working longer hours, we have people that are working two jobs.”

…This, from a woman who’s whoring with the worst President of the United States and who’s husband has the largest collection of crop-whips north of the Mason-Dixon Line and east of the Pecos.

Bachmann wiggled away from the podium looking like a langostino wrapped in bacon, stopped once to picked the pink spandex Capris out of the crack in her ass and disappeared in her stretched limo. She didn’t bother to answer any questions. She never does. Nobody even got to ask if she even knew Minnesota lost 2,300 jobs in December alone. Not that anyone would expect her to know; she wouldn’t care anyway.

Black Garbage FlyOn that same day, Electrolux, a corporation in St Cloud, MN and deep inside Bachmann’s 6th District, laid off 190 employees. Do you think Michelle Bachmann knew that? If she did, and I ain’t sayin’ one way or the other; she could have thought intelligently about Minnesota’s inflation rate is currently at a 17 year high.

Bob Olson, a DFL candidate who’s expected to bring some form of respect to the citizens in Minnesota’s CD 6th, was quick for a response to Congresswoman Bachmann’s disgusting arrogance. In his own press release today, Mr. Olson said:

Folks don’t take extra hours or extra jobs for fun, congresswoman. They’re trying to survive. If you got out and talked to real folks, not handpicked audiences, you’d realize that health care costs are soaring; that college tuition is beyond the reach of many deserving students; and that gas prices are putting a pinch on many families–resulting in higher prices at the grocery store.

Hooche-mama… Nastay..! And he goes on:Pig Lipstick

I understand that you’re putting lipstick on our pig of an economy because the president you blindly support is running America into the ground, but touting the hardships that too many families from St. Cloud to Woodbury are enduring is absolutely offensive.

And after he’s bloodied her nose, he said:

Minnesota would be better served if you became the ‘workingest’ congresswoman in Washington and started seriously addressing the challenges our country faces. The people of our district didn’t send you to Washington to cozy up to the oil companies that are polluting our environment; the corporate titans that outsource our jobs; or the health insurance companies that jack up our premiums. They sent you there to work.

FruitFly 6And that, my friends, is a political Throwdown. If your Mother says shit like that to you, you don’t forget it for a very long time. If your minister says to you..”Look, the people sent you up there to DC to work…not shoot your mouth off like you’re an idiot…” You listen, and you best listen well. And, if RuPaul says it: Well…

The Republicans are apparently financing the Taliban and al Qaeda these days

Mark SiljanderHowie Klein is the tattle-tale

A former Republican congressman, Mark Siljander, was indicted this morning as part of a terrorist fundraising ring that allegedly sent more than $130,000 to a dangerous al Qaeda and Taliban supporter and war lord, Gulbuddin Hekmatyar. The Chicago-born Siljander was a crooked real estate broker from Michigan who was elected to Congress in a special election when David Stockman resigned in 1981. He was re-elected twice and then defeated in a Republican primary by current Congressman Fred Upton. At that point Reagan appointed Siljander to the U.S. delegation to the UN General Assembly. He moved to Virginia and ran for Congress in 1992 and was defeated by Jim Moran.

I thought Ann Coulter said that it was the Liberals and the Progressives who were traitors for not supporting this war against terrorism! What the hell..?!?!?!?
Howie continues on to infuriate me…

The Republican politician was paid $50,000 to “lobby” for what Republicans usually call Islamofascists. The money had been stolen from the U.S. Agency for International Development. Siljander is hardly the first Republican politician to have stolen money from the U.S. government during Bush’s regime– and that isn’t why he was indicted today. He will be facing 46 counts on charges ranging from money laundering and conspiracy to obstruction of justice and lying to federal investigators.

Julian BeckWhen I see stories about Republicans like that, I seem to always come back to Julian Beck from Poltergeist II and hear: “The Lord…Is in His Hooooooly Temple…”

Howie includes Siljander’s BFF list…

One more thing, if you check the references for Siljander’s shady company (linked above), you find some very unsavory characters, starting with ex-President George H.W. Bush, Ed Meese, Bob McFarlane, and current presidential hopeful and all around corrupt slimebag Duncan Hunter (R-CA) to an assortment of some of the worst congressional miscreants to ever darken the halls of Congress: James Inhofe (R-OK), Tony Hall (D-OH– now in prison), and Frank Wolf (R-VA)– as well as Lawrence Babbio, the president of Verizon who the Bush Regime and their congressional allies are trying to grant retroactive immunity for illegally spying on American citizens. Nice bunch! (One has to wonder if any of the Republican money sent to help the terrorists was responsible for this.)

FruitFly 6Makes you taste that bit of vomit at the back of your throat, huh? I need a shower now…

Walter Reed: Nothing new there! It’s still a *@%^-hole Hospital

TruthoutTruthout is reporting a story of a military nurse who’s sent letters and requests to General Schumacher on what the hospital’s needs are. Schumacher was the replacement for Major General George W. Weightman who was the one in charge when the news broke that our wounded soldiers were tea-bagging in their own urine and feces. What our whistle blower received as a response to his notifying General Schumacher is a backlash against him and massive amounts of infections and dangerous bacterias.

Former Army Lt. and military nurse Doug Connor sat down for an interview with Truthout reporter Geoffrey Millard to share his experience before and after the Walter Reed Medical Center scandal broke.

Encouraged by the firings of top military officials as a result of the problems at Walter Reed, Connor spoke out about the dilapidated conditions at Walter Reed. He sent a letter to Gen. Gregory A. Schumacher with recommendations for improving conditions in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) where there were equipment shortages and outbreaks of infectious bacteria, including extremely dangerous drug-resistant forms of Acinetobacter baumannii, a bacterium that has been ravaging injured soldiers in Iraq and in domestic military hospitals.

Does anybody remember when they said if we “didn’t support the troops we were being unpatriotic“?!

Well here’s the GOP’s idea of “supporting the troops” and their idea behind “patriotism”.

The infection problems caused other units within the hospital to lose faith in the ICU’s ability to care for surgical patients. Because of the infections, “the kidney transplant team will not recover their patients in the surgical ICU anymore,” Connor said in the interview.

According to Connor, his recommendations were not acted upon. Instead, he claims that he was retaliated against. “I thought he would thank me for letting him know where there were areas that needed to be fixed … I have been retaliated against because of the letters that I have sent out. It is pretty transparent … Everyone that has seen what happened around me is just like ‘yeah, they’re going after you.'”

FruitFly 6It just makes you wanna stand up and salute that Commander of Chief of ours, don’t it?!

Yeah… Those Republicans sure deserve a lot of respect for their “leadership skills”.

UPDATE: Since too few bother reading the COMMENTS section, it’s worth posting this one front and center.

Ms Marcie Hascall Clark from  left this tiny tidbit of extra happy news:

The Acinetobacter baumannii that Conner brought up in this interview is a problem they could have contained back in 2003 if they had put as much effort into cleaning up their act as they did trying to cover up the mess.
The Acinetobacter baumanni from the military evacuation system from Iraq has spread throughout the military health system, the VA health system, the NIH, and on to civilian hospitals all across the US and to the countries of the coalition.
They fast tracked this bug, along with MRSA and some others, to extreme drug resistance. The military strains of Acinetobacter baumannii have grown resistant to every anti microbial available.
Check it out at http://www.iraqinfections.org

…It would appear that not only has Bush’s complete incompetence in leadership has left us in a lose-lose situation in Iraq, but has also stupidly introduced a wickedly harmful slew of foreign bacteria into our own health care system and consequently; our society.

We’ll forever remember the stupidity of this President and the Republicans for which he stands…

President Bush’s newest (dis)-approval numbers

Nazi MickeyDoes anybody remember when ABC (a.k.a. Mickey Mouse Television) aired that show “Path to 9-11” in 2006? There was all of this controversy from within the Democratic National Committee who urged progressives and liberals to write nasty-grams to ABC Chief Robert Iger to keep that piece of propaganda piece off the air. Especially when the movie essentially blamed the Democrats in Congress (?!!) for 9-11. And being a month and a half away from the upcoming election, that really pissed off the Progressives and the Liberals. Everybody screamed and ballyhooed complete with pictures of Mickey Mouse sporting an Adolf Hitler mustache. The propaganda puff-piece didn’t seem to work however: The Dems, of course, gained control of Congress and the Republicans are still bitching and whining about a “liberal media bias”…of course.

Well, now the Mickey Channel has some bad news for the neo-Nazi’s, the likes of Ann Coulter and Michelle Malkin:

The latest GW Bush poll numbers from Mickey Mouse tee-vee!!

Nazy Mickey…And trust me folks, it ain’t looking good for King George, his wife Pickles, or for Pluto, Goofy and the Country Bear Jamboree. Although I’m sure it was painful for the producers of the “Path to 9-11” (especially after their stupid propaganda film didn’t do them any good anyway), Americans simply do not like George…nor the neo-Nazi flag that his minions are currently goose stepping and saluting.

Are we ready boys and girls?!

Let’s go!

Job Approval: Just 32 percent of Americans now approve of the way Bush is handling his job, while 66 percent disapprove.

Even with a slight reduction in violence in Iraq:

64 percent say the war was not worth fighting, 2 points from its high.

Republican boys and girls might want to look away… this could get ugly for some.

77 percent in this ABC News/Washington Post poll say the country is headed off on the wrong track — the most since the federal government shut down in a deeply unpopular budget battle in early 1996.

Three post-World War II presidents have gone lower than Bush in overall approval:

    • Jimmy Carter (28 percent)
      • Richard Nixon (24 percent)
      • Harry Truman (22 percent)

          But after three straight years in the doghouse, Bush is just two months away from Truman’s record of 38 months without majority approval — far beyond any other.

          Intensity of sentiment, moreover, remains very heavily against the president.

          Fifty-one percent strongly disapprove of his work overall, while just 16 percent strongly approve — strongly negative by better than a 3-1 ratio.

          On the Economy:

          Economic trouble almost always damages an incumbent president, and it’s been brewing for months. Consumer confidence as measured weekly by ABC News grew worse in each quarter of 2007. In November, 69 percent of Americans said a recession was at least somewhat likely in the next year. And in this poll the economy has surpassed the Iraq War as the most important issue to voters in the 2008 presidential campaign.

          8 percent now approve of how Bush is handling the economy, down 6 points in the last month and down from 40 percent in June.

          But it’s not the housing or credit markets but other economic concerns that Americans cite as their families’ main economic problems:

            • 24 % cite health care costs
              • 23 % rising prices
              • 16% on the price of gasoline
              • 12% on taxes

                Notice that the number one issue is a topic that Republicans completely ignore while the last item is a topic Republicans promote as a “top issue”. The opposite is true of the Democrats: Health care is vitality important to the Democrats platform. Is it any wonder why the Democrats are hauling in loads of cash while the Republicans are starved for it?

                On “Getting Ahead” (no dirty-thoughts please)

                All told, just 21 percent say they’re “getting ahead” financially, while 17 percent say they’re falling behind (actually a bit fewer than the 23 percent who say so in fall 2006). Most, six in 10, say they’re earning just enough to maintain their standard of living.

                That’s Mickey-speak translated as: Over half of Americans say they’re barely hanging on, Baby.

                In a country where getting ahead is the American dream, just holding steady doesn’t do it.

                • Among those who are getting ahead financially, 60 percent say the country is headed in the wrong direction (they have other concerns, including the war).
                • Among those who are just maintaining, far more, 79 percent, say the country’s going the wrong way.
                • And among those falling behind, “wrong direction” peaks at 89 percent.

                On “Iraq” (drum-roll please…)

                  • 30 percent approve of how he’s handling the war in Iraq (2 points from his low, and again strong disapprovers outnumber strong approvers by 3-1.
                  • 54 percent remain skeptical the U.S. is making significant progress restoring civil order there.

                    Of those who support the War in Iraq (those Republicans who are going to vote for McCain, Romney, Huckabee and “Rotten Rudy” Giuliani)

                      • 69 percent approve of Bush’s work in office
                        • 52 percent say the country’s headed down the wrong track

                          Among those who disapprove of the war,

                            • Bush’s approval rating is 12 percent;
                              • “wrong track,” 91 percent.

                                Aye yi yi!! That smarts! Especially when over half the country is skeptical about this war already – 91% think this war is nothing but crap!

                                The effect of an unpopular war on presidential approval has been seen before. Johnson’s approval dropped year-to-year as the nation became enmeshed in Vietnam, from 66 percent in 1965 to 51 percent in 1966 and 42 percent in 1968, when he chose not to run for re-election. Bush’s approval has followed a similar path — just a longer one.

                                Bush v LBJ

                                On the “Party”!! (That’s the “neo-con party” of Nazi’s of course)

                                There’s been political damage beyond the president; his party has suffered as well. After decades of gradual growth, the Republican Party finally achieved parity with the Democrats in 2003, when, on average across the year, precisely equal numbers of Americans identified themselves with either party — 31 percent Democrats, 31 percent Republicans (with the rest independents).

                                But that changed after 2003 — the year the United States invaded Iraq. Since then Republican self-identification has moved back down, to an average of 25 percent across 2007 — its lowest year long average since 1984.

                                Party ID

                                <GASP!> Bush’s Presidency has thrown the GOP back to the early Eighties?! Ronald Ray-gun must be rolling in his grave! This is more terrifying than a ride on the Pirates of the Caribbean..! Can you imagine what the “liberal press” is saying right now?!

                                On Groups:

                                Bush is at career lows in approval in three groups as well as overall — among liberals (9 percent approve of his work), moderates (24 percent) and independents — the center of American politics — among whom just 25 percent approve.

                                His ratings are far higher among his core supporters, Republicans and conservatives, with 68 percent and 55 percent approval, respectively. But even those are well below his career averages in these groups, 86 percent and 71 percent. Beyond liberals, disapproval of Bush peaks among Democrats, African-Americans and strong opponents of the Iraq war.

                                The most interesting statement in the four page report is the last sentence:

                                The president’s low overall ratings fuel one other result, perhaps an obvious one: 79% percent of Americans say his successor should take the nation in a different direction.

                                Obviously this should be of the most important interest to all of the GOP candidates up there. Mitt Romney preaches “change” but doesn’t explain how to define that word. Likewise with Huckabee and “Rotten Rudy” Giuliani; they preach “change” but they’re not defining.

                                Their candidate gaining popularity recently is (POW and tortured) Senator John McCain. He’s the one who compromised with the president by letting Bush continue on torturing Guantanamo detainees which makes him nothing but a stinking hypocrite.  But I digress…again. McCain doesn’t even bother talking about “change”. He promotes staying in Iraq for up to 100 years if necessary and thinks Bush is doing a mighty fine job.

                                If you’d rather read the article with the graph charts, massive amounts of numbered charts and clarifications of what questions were asked (and the demographics of the people polled), you can click the PDF here. The charts on this blog belong to the original ABC report published in the PDF. Otherwise, you can roll a joint, make yourself a JD-n-coke and enjoy what I’ve supplied here. (Just don’t tell the cops about your stash, like I did once. Spent the entire Fourth of July weekend in jail.)

                                FruitFlyNow there’s only one logical conclusion to all of this gibberish: If the Evangelicals believe God Almighty reached down from Heaven and hand-picked George W Bush to be our President, our Commander in Chief… Then we’re in a hell of a lot of trouble.

                                Letters to the Editor: Gulf News (UAE)…One person’s thoughts on GWB

                                Bush LegacyAhh…. Those fabulous days when they laughed about Bill Clinton’s “foreign policies” when he became President. They laughed at our (DNC) stupidity with some dumb hick from Arkansas off to visit the foreign heads of state. The laughter! How they joked and riddled each of us…Clinton was our guy and we elected some dumb hick. …How well I remember those days…<sigh>

                                Well, the sunset hours of our current Texas-sized trailer-park trash and the fruits of his own “foreign policies” have begun to ripen. Ever wonder how people from foreign lands feel about our current “foreign relations genius? Of course we’ll overlook that that disaster of a trip Bush and his wife took to Argentina in Nov. 2005 . The one when Hugo Chavez made Bush looked like an idiot and the local press was reporting that the country had never seen such a mass-riots. The same Argentinian Summit where Bush retured home stumbling drunk and showed up to endorse Jerry Kilgore for Governor who ended up loosing in landslide…but I digress.

                                Today, Bush is visiting the Middle East. He’s hoping to cinch up the final days of his “legacy” over there. Rachel Maddow lead me to a Letter to the Editor in the United Arab Emirate’s Gulf News and I thought it was worth blogging.

                                You can read the entire letter for yourself, while I’ll just plagiarize the first sixty-five sentences. Now when you read it.. Read it allowed. …That way you’ll get the full effect of what the author is trying to say.

                                Ready? Okay..! Ehem..! “A Letter to the Editor! …One person’s viewpoint on our President of the United States: George W. Bush” …read out loud:
