Mayor Gives Glenn Blech the “Keys To The City”. The City Council Changes the Locks

fruitfly21This cracks me up: Glenn Blech has created a cult following of Helter Skelter Republicans who’ll do anything to pay homage to the Mormon wack-job. (Hint: Minnesota’s 6th Michele Bachmann (R) has proudly called for a mass suicide in order to avoid federally funded health care.)
Glenn Blech’s hometown Mt. Vernon, WA has a mayor who’s a member of that Helter Skelter group who’s drumming up a celebration to give Glenn Bleck the “Keys to the City”. A non-award of stupid homage towards a stupid person.

Glenn Beck will receive the key to his hometown of Mount Vernon, Wash. in a ceremony this Saturday.

Meanwhile, Mt. Vernon City Council voted unanimously to “change the keys to the city“, leaving the Mayor to give Glenn Blech nothing but a placebo and a chance to jack the Wack-Job off.

On Wednesday night, the City Council of this town of 32,000 distanced itself from Mayor Bud Norris, who plans to give the keys to the city to talk-show personality Glenn Blech on Saturday.

The seven-member council unanimously passed a resolution proposed by member Dale Ragan that stated, Mount Vernon City Council is in no way sponsoring the Mayor’s event on September 26, 2009 and is not connected to the Glenn Beck event in any manner.”

Oh thank God, they cleared that up! The mayor is a wack-job and the city-council has Pawlenty-sized Veto-Pen and they’re ready and waiting!

I’m setting up my Kool Aid stand right over here and I’m going to laugh my ass off.

Oh Yeah!!!

King Tim Gets Talked Down: There’s No “Death Panel” In The Bill

Poor King Tim.  He has to come to grips by admitting after two minutes of trying to convince Joe Scarborough that there really are “death penels” in the Health Care Bill, caves and admits that there isn’t.

How embarrassing: Getting “schooled” by another Republican on national television.

From those Satan Worshiping liberals over at Crooks and Liars (with my own Satan Worshiping highlights, of course!):

Scarborough: But you know there are no death panels here though. Counseling is one thing. Having three people lining up saying “granny dies, grandpa lives”, that’s quite another. You can’t get there from here.

Pawlenty: Well what happens Joe, what you call it or label it, but I think the facts are these. When you have a system like the United Kingdom where there are breast cancer…

Scarborough: But we don’t. We don’t Governor with all due respect. This does not give us a system like the United Kingdom. I’m talking specifically about this bill. How does this bill get us to “death panels”? You don’t believe it does do you?

Pawlenty: Joe what if it becomes to expensive and then the trajectory of it is even close to what’s being predicted ten years out that they can no longer afford all that they promised and somebody has to say scale back the care. And the federal government is now empowered to do that. When you look at examples around the world where that takes place there are concerns about care being cut back by a federal government institution and we could have a legitimate debate about whether that’s good or not. I don’t think it is.

Scarborough: Governor, what in this bill though, let’s be specific, what in this bill leads us to that position, gives a bureaucrat that power ten years from now to make that decision. I know we’re going to have to make excruciating decisions on health care. You’ve talked about it before, over the next decade because we’ve run out of money in this country, but what in this bill specifically, what provision in this bill specifically would lead anybody to rationally believe a death panel might emerge in a decade, based on this legislation?
Pawlenty: Joe, there is nothing in the legislation that directly says that, it’s the indirect concerns that I’m trying to articulate that I think are at least worth raising.

Yeah, that’s true, Your Majesty!  It’s those same “indirect concerns” that I have when you’ve cut off medication for the mentally ill in downtown Minneapolis and St Paul that concerns me! For Gods Sakes, I think that’s well worth raising, you single-minded Royal Putz!!  He’ll block the poor and mentally ill from medications, and he’ll block the Federal Health Care bill from reaching the rest of us Minnesotans.  …And yet, he’s “pro-life”.

These Republicans are morons. Period. Their “Fear Card” has expired and all they have left is…

The Republican Party: Are You A “Corporate Dupe”?!


Notice the difference in the stupidity that’s being presented here: Corporate shills stuffing puppets to boon-dogle insane imagry. The political play is adolescent, at best: “We hate government (unless we’re at war in Iraq or Afghanistan”!
“Ah, Duality; Sweet, sweet Duality”….

The bigger question is obvious: “Where will the GOP land?”

FruitFly 6Dead people in the streets without health care? …Or rich people pulling their eye-balls out with chop-sticks because they have to pay more in taxes?

The cartoon, as it stands, is an icon on the American future: Funding for war “freedom”, health care for Americans is “socialism”!

SCANDAL! The Truth Behind Sarah Palin’s Resignation!

Oh dear, this is just tragic….

Governor Palin Killed Bullwinkle

Governor Palin Killed Bullwinkle

What a murderous person that Sarah Palin has turned out to be.  Is Sarah Palin really Natasha Natal?  Did Sarah Palin show up in Frostbite Falls, Minnesota and kill Bullwinkle right under Republican Governor Time Pawlenty (a.k.a. King Pawlenty) nose?!  Did Governor Pawlenty help Governor Palin kill Bullwinkle?!

There will be a hefty price to pay for this muderous plot!! Stay tuned for more!!

Gay Marriage in Rhode Island: They’re the “Lucky Seven”?

The tough decision…

  1. Connecticut
  2. Iowa
  3. Maine
  4. Massachusetts
  5. New Hampshire
  6. Vermont

Will Rhode Island be the Lucky 7? Or will it be Maryland?!  There’s some hot-buttons going on in Maryland!  Oh!  And let’s not forget Pennsylvania!

Or Minnesota? Will Minnesota be the Lucky Seven…  Oh wait.  Scratch that!. Minnesota’s a dump-ground of Republican whims.  We’re the only State in the country with one vote in the U.S. Senate thanks to the GOP.   …And, we’ve got Tim Pawlenty as a governor, the GOP’s favorite poodle. Men Without Pants: And the Girls Go So, let’s just scratch Minnesota as an opportunity.  Republicans are a lost cause and Pawlenty’s still waiting for that T-shirt the GOP promised him if he played “good puppy”.  Minnesota will even elect gay Republicans who’ll vote against gay marriage and proudly  brag about it!

Governor Pawlenty: (WAAA!!!) I WANNA BE A POPULAR REPUBLICAN!!! (WAAA!)

Jackass!!!

Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty (R) on MSNBC yesterday:

Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty (R) said today that he won’t validate a winner in the long-running Senate standoff between former Sen. Norm Coleman (R) and Al Franken (DFL) until “we get a proper result” — a process that will likely take “a few more months.”

Franken currently holds a 225-vote lead, but a three-judge panel is scheduled to count 400 contested ballots today. Asked if he would sign the election certificate if that panel finds Franken the winner, Pawlenty said he would not, instead waiting on the likely appeals process to play itself out.

The Minnesota Supreme Court said, in a recent decision, that a certificate shouldn’t issue — or isn’t likely that it should issue until the state court process has run its course. That would include the appellate process.

It’s pretty clear that one side or the other’s going to take that next step … and it wouldn’t be appropriate for me or anyone else to step in front of it.

It’s frustrating that this has taken so long, but we need to get a proper and just and accurate and legal result, and it’s going to take, it looks like, a few more months to get that.

The 3-Judge Panel hasn’t issued a ruling yet and Timmy is already soaking up the power-play for his own failure to run against Obama in 2012.  Minnesota’s Governor. another Republican Puke, has decided to trivialize Minnesota’s voice in the United States Stanate is nothing short proving himself as being  a harpie and a shill.   Put simply: Minnesota Governor, Tim Pawlenty has made his deicision:

“I’d rather be a political slut for the Republican Party than let Minnesota have a fair voice in the United States Senate.”

Playing politics is far more important than letting Minnesota have their voice in the Senate…

Thanks for keeping Minnesota’s best interests at heart, Governor!

Jackass!!!

Governor Pawlenty failes Econ 101…again

tim-palenty4This picture of our Governor Tim Pawlenty barely missing that ball reminds me of his current thoughts on Macro- economics.

Poor Governor Pawlenty; not only does he miss the opportunity to be the Republican Super Hero here in St Paul by being Sen John McCain’s choice as Veep, but he’s now getting compared to being a dumber choice for the position as a V.P. than Caribou Barbie herself.

The GOP ignored Pawlenty during the recent Republican Governors Association (RGA) and desperately turned towards Sara Palin during the in Miami just a few weeks ago. Not only was our own Tim Pawlenty “out of focus”, he was completely Out of Touch. The scene in Miami was so bad that Republican Governor Rick Perry (R-Texas) practically pushed Palin off the stage less she make a bigger idiot of herself.

And where was Pawlenty? Minnesota’s favored dimpled-donned fearless leader during that big bash in Miami?

He was MIA, like a Republican draft card. He is the sitting Chair of the National Governors Association you know. That trumps Rick Perry, Sarah Palin as well as Rot-Gut governor in Illinois, Rod Blagojevich.

In a piece Governor Pawlenty wrote for Politico entitled: “Cut up the credit cards“, our very own Governor proves his lack of economic intelligence by trying to invigorate the failing Republican Party:

Republicans should push for the enactment of an amendment to the United States Constitution requiring a balanced federal budget. This initiative is based on the common sense, kitchen table logic that most Americans and businesses live by. They expect the same from their government but haven’t been getting it lately.

Passing this amendment will be no small task…. Getting it done will require a two-thirds vote by both houses of Congress, followed by ratification by three-fourths of the states.

While daunting, this effort will unify and energize Republicans. It will require the GOP at all levels to be engaged in a common sense agenda that is compelling, conservative and that will positively transform America.

In Political Animal of The Washington Monthly, Steve Benen fired off:

This is so blisteringly stupid, I find it hard to believe an elected official would actually put his name on it. Maybe the Politico is playing a practical joke on Pawlenty, in the hopes of making him appear like a fool.

It’s no practical joke, It is, indeed, our idiotic Governor in Chief. Let’s all remember Pawlenty Economic initiative like, oooh… say: “Naming your Lieutenant Governor to be head of Minn Dept of Transportation so the state can save $108,000 annually.” In the world of Economics, an annual $100,000 is a drop in the bucket, but to Governor Pawlenty, it’s “Coupon Sunday!”.

Woo-Hoo-Hoo-Ray!

Governor Pawlenty is not the Brain Trust that Republican some folks think.

Benen goes on and slams the Governor on two points:

I honestly don’t know where to begin in responding to such an insane policy prescription.

  • The first point, of course, is that trying to balance the budget in the midst of a financial crisis is the exact opposite of what every sane person realizes we need — a government stimulus to help spur the economy. Why would Pawlenty recommend slashing hundreds of billions of dollars in government spending right now?
  • Second, that the Minnesota governor sees a similarity between an individual family’s budget and that of the United States government suggests he has a child-like understanding of economic basics.

Governor Pawlenty isn’t alone in this line of thinking. Republican Governor Mark Sanford of South Carolina told the Wall Street Journal:

When times go south you cut spending,” Gov. Sanford said. “That’s what families do, that’s what businesses do, and I don’t think the government should be exempt from that process.”

The idea these Republicans are pushing right now is that they’re against these federal bailouts and believe the financial crises can be resolved by spending cuts and reducing government. It’s exactly what Herbert Hoover did while dipping dangerously close to a depression – he cut everything off and we finally landed in the ditch wildly known as “The Great Depression”. (Hint: “You give money out, boys. Lots of it…The more you give out, the more people will spend it!”)

Republican Governors are facing the same problem everywhere: Lack of cash. Going against their genetic makeup by raising taxes, they’ve finally had their “Come to Jesus” by raising Sin Taxes on cigarettes. Governors Charlie Crist (R-FL) and Haley Barbour (R-MS) both have proposals to do just that. Pawlenty? Well, he’ll bitch and crab about Obama’s offer to help states and local municipalities, but he’s still planning on heading back to St Paul to demand the DFL kiss his ass by hacking away at LGA’s (Local Government Authorities) and the (Twin Cities) Met Council.

The second part of Pawlenty’s comment is equally stupid. I’ll agree with Steve Brenen that Publius described it best by noting:

This is of course dead wrong — and confuses microeconomics with macro, as any student of Econ 101 could tell you. The micro-considerations of an individual family or business has nothing much to do with what governments need to do to get the larger economy moving again. (Or just go read someone who actually knows what he’s talking about – Krugman). Even worse, it’s often affirmatively harmful to adopt microeconomic solutions to macroeconomic problems. Hoover: Ain’t that the truth.

Is it any wonder we’re having this financial crisis?

Republican President Ronald Reagan kicked off the modern Neocon movement with two simple statements:

  • The government isn’t part of the problem, the government is the problem!
  • The most terrifying words you’ll ever hear are: “Hello, I’m from the government and I’m here to help.”

Since then, the hatred toward the United States Government, US Government departments, US Government programs and US Government workers that have been under attack by the Republican Party ever since. The problem is obvious: Even the GOP doesn’t understand end of the line. Grover Norquist, the “Field Marshal” for Bush’s tax-cuts once said:

“My goal is to cut government in half in twenty-five years, to get it down to the size where we can drown it in the bathtub.”

…And with Governor Pawlenty, his hatred for our government gave us thirteen Minnesotans drowned in the Mississippi under the rubble of what used to be “Interstate 35-W”. Who needs a bathtub when you have a river that’s right handy?

FruitFly 6Pawlenty needs to find a new way to be that “Rising Star” from within the GOP, and he needs cook up a whole new kettle of fish as Ronald Reagan did so eloquently thirty years ago. Until then; trying to sound like an expert on Macroeconomics simply isn’t working in his favor. He’s presenting a very stupid argument on Politico and the rest of the mass media is mocking him publicly. And their heckling, I can only hope, includes their pity on the rest of us Minnesotans who have to live under this stupid Governor of ours.

Alaskans’ might have a smarter governor than we have, although I cringe at the very thought.
