HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY!
Watch out, he’s petting his peeves again! Messages scribbled on Post-It Notes that were giving me a brain-ache until I wrote them down. Note to Abraham Lincoln, wherever he is now: It’s just as well you’re not around today. The idea that Haley “Yazoo City” Barbour and Rick “Secesh” Perry are Republicans would no doubt give you severe apoplexy followed by a fatal stroke anyway. Note to George Washington, wherever he is now: Good thing you’re not around, either, to see this 21st century bobblehead-doll America where a good portion of the politicians and electorate, abetted by the dumbed-down corporate media, have forgotten how to read, especially where the Constitution and the Bible are concerned. Note to Arianna Huffington: A quote from Balzac seems appropriate: “Behind every great fortune there is a great crime.” Take a couple of million from the $315 mil you got from AOL and throw a few bucks at all the people who worked for free to make your website worth selling. BTW, I can’t find even one person who thinks your AOL merger is a good idea or cares to read your website again. Prediction: the AOL-Huff Post is toast. Note to Clarence Thomas: What…
What a shock – greedy Republicans at the top scamming the gullible lower on the ladder for money! Somebody tell Fox News! “[The national] Tea Party Patriots don’t really do anything for the local groups … There are a lot of frustrated people. There are a lot of other people in the country who’ve done events and have gotten screwed over. We are all volunteers. We do not get paid like [Jenny Beth Martin, national TPP director] does.

McGraw was stuck with a $5,000 bill for catering that was supposed to be paid by the national TPP organization.
Glimpses Behind the Curtain of Our Blutocracy “Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell, no!” – Sen. John “Bluto” Blutarsky, from the film “Animal House” (1978). BACHMANNALIA: 1. The sound wild-eyed gibberish makes in a rubber room. 2. An election-year holiday celebrating the unity of corporate money and gullible voters with sensibilities as squishy as wet teabags. 3. A sexless outdoor orgy in Minnesota in mid-winter, the quintessential Republican idea of how the public should be treated. BACHMANNLINESS: 1. Putting on your ‘man pants’ backwards, while staring at the wrong camera. 2. Having the balls to misquote the Constitution on national television. BLUTOCRACY: 1. A plutocracy as operated by Sen. John Blutarsky, the fictional ‘Bluto’ character from the film “Animal House,” and those who are likeminded. 2. The USA today, and not the newspaper. 3. Wall Street week. BOEHNALITY: 1. Crocodile tears shed by one who is only half-crocked. 2. Pretending you’re in control of something you plainly are not, such as a bus when the steering wheel has come off in your hand. 3. The illusion that you stand for anything beyond your own personal gain and your…
