Is Any Kennedy Ready for a Senate Seat?
Something that the Founding Fathers busted their ass to do was to avoid the airs and the realities of a ruling class, a royalty. And although there were early exceptions (the biggest being John Quincy Adams following his father to the presidency), America is known for regularly pumping through relatively fresh blood into the political mix, drawing from all corners of the country and all kinds of people (the latest being Barack Obama). But we are still attracted to the idea that there are people who, by birth, are better in some way. Bullshit. That there's a reason to write a story about getting a Kennedy back into the Senate because there isn't one discounts the concept of merit (although many of the Kennedys listed have done stuff of note) in favor of getting "royalty" back is dumbness. And for you liberals think it's just a reaction to it being a Democrat family, here's two words that should explain why electing more people from the same family is not necessarily good: Jeb Bush. And anyone who wants too keep up the political inbreeding is an asshat.
Indian Prime Minister to Be Received in First State Visit at Obama White House
Our asshat here is any Bush haters that see W as the destroyer of our reputation around the world. The fact is that no president pleases every country out there. And Ol' George, besides strengthening ties with Israel, also...
..oversaw the transformation of the relationship after decades of Cold War-era distrust. The new ties are symbolized by a landmark civilian nuclear cooperation accord signed into law last year after years of close communication among senior Indian and U.S. officials who negotiated and then sold the accord to lawmakers.Interestingly, Obama's Asia visit was marred by a perceived snub of India. Which, in short, indicates that no president gets it right with every country every time. So if you want to criticize Bush for a falling reputation with some countries, it's fair. However, this assumption that America is damaged in the eyes of the world is generalization by asshattery.
Lawyer: 9/11 Defendants Will Tell Jury 'Why They Did It'
This is a continuation of last week's AOTW. For these terrorist pieces of shit, it's not about a matter of their guilt or innocence, it's about using the justice system to fuck with us. That's all I've really got. Thanks, Barry and Co, for the asshattery.
Lou Dobbs Considers Possible Presidential Run
Let's put it this way. Glenn Beck has a bigger following and is more successful. He has a better chance of getting elected than Dobbs, because people other than pissed off liberals know who he is. And in reality, neither would have a snowball's chance in hell of getting past the crazies and the base. Of course, it could be some crappy comedian-turned failed radio talk show puke running for office. But that's just a Senate seat. And I think Dobbs might have less experience then Obama did. There's an asshat somewhere in there.
But I think I've finally decided:
Lawmakers Propose 'War Surtax' to Pay for Troop Increase in Afghanistan
If you were poor to middle class and were either pissed at Bush, desirous to punish the EEEVIL RICH for being themselves, or lobotomized (the majority), then I can see why you'd vote for Barry the sugar daddy: Because he'd take care of you. But if you are on the dwindling list of people that pay significant amounts of taxes and you voted for Obama and the Democrats, then you either are a masochist, you hate yourself, or you have a botox lobotomy.
Let's see, there are taxes on the rich to pay for health care, taxes on the rich to pay for the bailouts, taxes on the rich for pretty much any idea that comes down the pike. Now, with no ability for Obama to even make a decision in Afghanistan, Rep. David Obey and Sen. Carl Levin are calling for taxes to pay for Afghanistan.
Uh, aren't we trying to recover from a recession? Or is this about sucking the few people who do have money dry so everybody's broke?
So if you actually have money and you voted for Obama, well, not only you're an asshat, but most of you are going to get to have fun with some public assistance. I swear, my ass is getting chapped thinking about it.
