Drop the needle anywhere because this dream (nightmare?) goes on forever...

First they came for Scott Brown…

...and then they came for Glenn Beck [via Wonkette]:

Meet kinder, gentler Glenn Beck: New ‘global warming’ believer?
Finds common ground with George Clooney, his publicist is Democratic Party power player

The best part is the “Let them know what you really think. Get ‘Global Warming Is A Hoax’ Magnetic/Easy-Off Adhesive Bumper Sticker” link WND embedded in middle of the article.  SAVE US, MAGNETO!

This is why Jane Hamsher and Cenk Whateverhisnameis writing posts about progressives needing to find common ground with teabaggin’ loons was some of the stupidest shit I’ve ever read in the leftosphere. The WE WANT OUR COUNTRY BACK!!! howler monkeys might be good for a short-term GOP victory or two, but these booger-eating morons, their numbers ridiculously over-amplified by the internet (just like the Paultards and the PUMAs in ‘08), are going to ultimately obliterate whatever kind of “comeback” the Republicans appeared to be mounting with their utterly inflexible (and ill-informed) purity test(s). I, for one, hope they never shut up because they’re one of the best presents the Dems have been handed in years.

Dems Playing Game of Chicken on Health Care Reform

image

via Greg Sargent.

The game of chicken commenceth — right now.

In the course of unveiling Obama’s new health reform proposal on a conference call with reporters this morning, White House advisers made it clearer than ever before: If the GOP filibusters health reform, Dems will move forward on their own and pass it via reconciliation.

Oh lord, I just wish I believed anymore that they’d actually do it!  Although House majority whip James Clyburn provided a ray of hope when he stated today that he believes the House has the votes to pass the President’s revised plan.  But, and I don’t know about the rest of y’all, I, for one, sure am tired of waiting for that last shoe to drop.

MA Sen. Scott Brown Joins Dems to Derail Filibuster on Obama’s Jobs Bill

Hottie McAwesome uses his buns-of-steel to moon the Teabaggers on a 62-30 cloture vote, with a little help from kindred Pubbies Collins, Snowe, Bond and Voinovich. Freepers are aghast.

UPDATE: Things aren’t going so well on his Facebook page, either. Yeow.

You FRAUD. Your lies and your truck can go to HELL

The NO Machine

Sarah Palin caresses Todd with her magical Quittin’ Mittens.

Todd “First Dude” Palin dropped out of the Iron Dog. There’s like a gazillion jokes in there, but nothing will be funnier than the FaceDisgracebook note Sarah (or maybe Piper) will write about it, so let’s all kill some time watching this until it happens. BECAUSE YOU KNOW THAT IT WILL! AND SHE WILL BLAME CARTOONS, LATE NIGHT CHILD MOLESTERS, REFRIGERATOR MAGNETS, TELEPROMPTERS, HOPEY, CHANGEY, AND/OR THE DEMOCRAT PARTY!!!

UPDATE: The ADN has updated their story and apparently the QUITTING (*snort!*) was due to a back injury or, as Ex-Half-Governor Iquitarod calls it, “broken parts”...

General Petraeus to Dick Cheney: You lie!

Well, not exactly, but Petraeus does clearly repudiate the lies Cheney has been peddling about the necessity of torture, Gitmo, etc.:

You’d think something like that might get a little more media play—this is General Surgey McSurgepants after all, the infallible warrior whose dress uniform Bush and Cheney so cravenly cowered behind for so long. I guess Tiger Woods’ confessional stepped on the story. Bummer.

President Blackula Toasts Death of Freedom, Elimination of “White Person” Gene

...or at least you’d think so, if you’re looking at Drudge or listening to Glenn “12-Step Program for America” Beck right now.

For fuck’s sake, it’s not even noon on Monday yet. Do these people wake up crazy?

Obama’s health care compromise proposal

You can see a PDF here. It looks like a re-worked version of the better-than-nothing Senate plan to me. I like some of the messaging around it, which pushes back on the hysterical scare-mongering.

Some of the early wingnut reactions are encouraging too. For example, here’s Michelle Malkin:

Earlier this month, I flagged the White House jihad against Anthem Blue Cross of California over its rate increases (see Feb. 9, 2010, Will the White House demand that every business “justify” its price increases?).

Yes—please build your objections around protecting insurance companies’ right to continue hosing people. That’s a totally winning strategy because, as everyone knows, insurance companies are universally beloved. Why, Obama might as well be attacking apple pie!

Manchurian Mannequins

Casual observers may believe Obama beat McCain because of things like effective organization, disgust with failed Republican policies, a VP candidate who wasn’t a booger-eating moron, etc. But the GOP poobahs know better: The party that transformed an addled, daddy-dependent, AWOL, prep-school cheerleader into Commander Codpiece understands the power of image.

Before McCain had even delivered his concession speech in 2008, the people who really run the GOP (hint: the money people, not the tea party yahoos, dittoheads, Paultards, etc.) identified the cause of the loss and were busily engaged in developing a new strategy.

Teabaggers Turn Against Imaginary Cartoon Hero: Is Sarah Palin Next?

Captain America stands for a lot of things, but he’s never been a bigoted patriotic chauvinist—except during a brief appearance in the 1950s by a paranoid, Commie-hating pseudo-Cap who adopted the flag-themed bunny-suit after the original Winghead retired rather than name names under severe grilling by McCarthy’s HUAC.

For some people, of course, 70 years of dick-slapping Nazis, Bond-grade terrorists and Frenchmen isn’t enough of a purity test. And when Cap and his AA superhero pal The Falcon recently observed a gathering of anti-government protesters with alarm, the Teabaggers, predictably, jumped the shark. Keith Olbermann addresses the controversy here.

Marvel Comics, owned by America-hating media conglomerate Disney, has already agreed to alter the offending graphic panel in future re-issues of the comic book story—a concession which, ironically, has rendered the original printing of the mag a hot, investment-grade collectible.

Despite Marvel’s decidedly un-heroic backdown, however, the Star-Spangled Super-Soldier has been forever pegged by the Tea Party crowd as a brainwashed Obot who wields his adamantium shield against helpless Paulites in wheelchairs.

Cap’n Crunch Wows Nutrition-Conscious, Gun-Owning CPAC Revelers

Beloved breakfast mascot Cap’n Crunch, pictured above at a December film premiere with long-time life-partner The Great Gazoo, made a surprise appearance at this weekend’s CPAC Convention in Washington, DC, urging attendees to “stay crispy, not soggy, as you soak in the fetid sour-milk bath of relentless Marxist usurpation of the Second Amendment.”

Earlier this month, Crunch shocked attendees of the Tea Party Nation gathering in Nashville when he claimed conjugal rights to married Facebook celebrity Sarah Palin and threatened to shoot the late John Murtha.
