Dr. DJ Duckhunt: Don't Troll Me Bro!: AdolfOliverPanties: [i2.cdn.turner.com image 640x360]

Is that little biatch about to cry again?

Not until he gets a few down the hatch.

Can a grown man cry bourbon?


No, but the crying Boehner doll can be loaded with crisp, satisfying conservative tears.

Corvus: If you want some good Schadenfreude go over to FreeRepubluc. It's a complete meltdown.


Seems like they've had one of those every couple of months for the last four years. I really don't see how that's sustainable. Is there some sort of Muscle Milk type of concoction that helps you build up the strength and endurance to go into a frothy walleyed aneurystic rage on demand, like a high-performance athlete? If not, I think someone should invent one. They could call it Red Bullshiat.

House Speaker John Boehner couldn't hold back when he spotted Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in the White House lobby last Friday.

It was only a few days before the nation would go over the fiscal cliff, no bipartisan agreement was in sight, and Reid had just publicly accused Boehner of running a "dictatorship" in the House and caring more about holding onto his gavel than striking a deal.

"Go f- yourself," Boehner sniped as he pointed his finger at Reid, according to multiple sources present.

Reid, a bit startled, replied: "What are you talking about?"

Boehner repeated: "Go f- yourself."

Yeah.  But, traditionally, every Republican votes for the Republican candidate and every Democrat votes for the Democratic candidate.


The Dems should split their votes between Boehner and Cantor to try and force a deadlock.  For the lulz.

Alphax: Phoenix_M: I can't believe they extended unemployment another 99 weeks. That's awesome news for the ne'er-do-wells.

That would be a GOOD thing. No need to make them move their families to under the nearest bridges. It's also stimulative, as they pay rent and buy food.


As an unemployed (i.e. only working part time and still eligible for UI payments) veteran, I wholly oppose extension of UI benefits. It's like buying $100k of life insurance, and then after collecting the policy asking for $200k instead. Just like the Wall Street and Detroit bailouts, we as a nation are rewarding bad behavior. Plus, if I didn't have the UI payments coming in every week (and I needed money to live) I could find a job really quickly. Furthermore, it's not stimulative, its redistributive or inflationary.

However, since they were extended, I'm going keep riding this gravy train as long as it stays on the rails.

Gyrfalcon: Kome: Oh god, freeperville is a glorious nest of b*tch-fits and delicious, delicious conservative tears.

I need to get to bed, but reading their comments that are so full of prepubescent angst and rage just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy.

This may be the final straw that breaks the back of the GOP. Either that, or we get a literal Night of the Long Knives.


Can we have a Reichstag Fire and Kristallnacht too? Kristallnacht just has a much more Christmasy sound to it. I'd love to see the Capital building burn down. Plus we could blame it on the Evangelicals and use it as an excuse to deny them suffrage.

/and since literariness is dying in America, yes, this is irony.

Honestly, I don't understand why pigeons wouldn't be delicious.

I mean, you wouldn't want to eat them raw off the streets of New York City...but, come on: purge them for awhile and roast them while frequently basting them?  They should be pretty boss.


I've had them before at a restaurant, two days after walking around shanghai asking myself, "Why are there no pigeons in this city?"

eraser8: Uranus Is Huge!: eraser8: shower_in_my_socks: According to Grover Nordquist, over half of the House GOP just voted against tax cuts.

Politico is saying that Norquist is giving his okay to the deal.

Got a link?

I'll go ahead and give it the prestigious Uranus is Huge! Seal of Approval, reluctantly.

It is equally meaningful.

My thought, when reading the Politico story, is that Norquist was trying to remain relevant...you know, after he predicted that his coalition of dumbasses would hold.

But, since you spoke up...are you female and sexy?


This is the Internet.

Of course I'm female and sexy. And rich. And a genius. And hung like a Clydesdale. Wait wut?

For Grover Norquist, the Senate-backed fiscal cliff bill on its way to the House floor Tuesday is a tax cut that House Republicans can vote for and defend to their constituents without violating their anti-tax increase pledges.

That little puke. The only thing that matters is that the Republicans didn't violate HIS pledge.
