WhoopAssWayne: He always makes Obama look like such a limp-wristed pussy in any kind of negotiation. Obama is his biatch and knows it. Just like how Obama bent over for Boehner recently, and loved it. Hahaha.
Max Awesome: [i42.photobucket.com image 750x562]Uncle Arthur gave me hope as a scared little gay boy. He was so obviously flaming, and yet he was completely accepted by his family and beloved by his niece. I was convinced I would one day lose my family and be hated by them forever when I eventually came out, so it was reassuring to see an example of a gay man who still had his family's respect and love.Plus, he was an uber-powerful Warlock who pushed-around the uptight anti-magic Darren and teased him mercilessly. Most of the humour of Bewtiched came from watching the conservative priggish Darren being befuddled by his more powerful and intelligent wife, and it was the same with Uncle Arthur - a witty gay man in a position of power above a weaker straight guy was just not something you saw on tv.Actually, I'm not sure it's a dynamic you see on television today, come to think of it. Bewitched was rather subversive./I just watched a Bewitched marathon on New Year's Day. I hadn't seen it in decades - it was awesome. I'm going to buy the dvd sets now.

The Irresponsible Captain: He's not a whole lot better than old Newtie.[1.bp.blogspot.com image 400x527]Pelosi is terrible as well. What the frack is wrong with the House? Is there no one there who can lead themselves out of a wet paper bag?Those two wastes of skin can't be the "best and brightest" that the House has to offer.
Real Women Drink Akvavit: I have such a major dumb when it comes to politics. WTF is wrong with these people that they have to be all crazy like? I go out of my way when voting to make sure I at least somewhat understand all of what's going on, but our congress, they apparently don't feel it's part of their job. They seem to vote on what their little line in the sand is based on and what others tell them to do. They need to start hanging out at Fark. I've learned a lot of stuff here. I think if congress members were required to pay Drew $5/mo., they'd be a lot smarter about things./Boehner really needs to lay off the tanning spray//unless he's trying to be invisible when sitting in a leather chair///kinda misses Michele "crazy eyes" Bachmann for the amusement value
Gonz: Look, I realize this is Fark, but the man's name is pronounced "Bay-nher". Let's not be a bunch of dicks, and go off half-cocked at every headline that makes some sort of juvenile reference to the man's name. He's third in line for the Presidency, which is hard to achieve. It's a great distance to rise, and they'll probably erect monuments to him in Ohio.And while we're at it, sure, the man drinks. Who doesn't? But I don't want to spend the next 2 years talking about Boehner vomiting White Russians. Let's have a bit of respect.//Colossal Phallus
Philip Francis Queeg: Corvus: zetar: While over in Freeperland, they shake their tiny impotent fists.Yes, I know schadenfreude is wrong. Nonetheless, the link is below if you need some larfs."Primary them all. Every last one. We will continue to get this crap until they fear us."Wow heads are aspoliding.To: TexasCajunI was a Democrat until they became Socialist then I became a Republican until they became Democrats & now I'm heading for Independent. I'm still a Conservative but the parties keep going left & the United States is in a sorry state.The hell?

Bladel: dumbobruni: Peter von Nostrand: BachmanBachmann voted for Boehner. Free Republic is in meltdown mode.K Street working girl.oh my.LinkWhat's truly funny is that so many over there swore they weren't Republicans, but rather "Independents." Now they are declaring their tenure as GOP shills as they jump ship....
durbnpoisn: trappedspirit: durbnpoisn: That's just great! He can't get the House to vote to get relief funds released to help all those people that are still homeless after 67 days, but he can call a vote to save his job.What. A. Dick!!As Gov. Christie so elegantly put it yesterday, this is why the US hates Congress!Uh, every new congress votes for speaker of the house. So I hope you are either trolling or never vote.Yes I do know that. But here's the thing, they were done with that at 1:30 this afternoon. Clearly it doesn't take very long. So, why didn't he do the vote to free up the funds first? Why is he delaying that untl tomorrow? Why was it delayed this farking long to start with?
HellRaisingHoosier: I've always enjoyed the political discussions on Fark because it allows for honest dialog between people of various backgrounds all across (mostly) the United States. Everything from intelligent comments and well-thought-out responses to brain-drain level stupidity. I feel it helps give me a pretty fair pulse of the nation.The fun part is taking the political discussions from Fark and replaying them in the real world. There have been many times I was able to counter a particular argument because it was already discussed in length on Fark.
Homegrown: Which one of you beautiful people is this:To: TexasCajunYep, I wonder if we have more than caving in going on.No content with Nazies hunting adult Jews in France, the Vichy French insisted on hunting the kids for them, which the Nazies had no room for and did not want.The GOPe vs. Pelosie argument and treachery going on of conservatives is an interesting burning question.What side are they on? Are they really promoting Obama more than liberals do?A bully usually has a following of bullies. They usually attack what is not attackable because they are too cowardly to defend from what attacks them and chews their rectum up. So they attack the inattackable, the innocent or the righteous.This self digging of the grave that politicians stuck on cowardice stupidity and corruption would be fun to watch if we were not getting splatters from this homosexualoid denial widening further their rectal acceptance of STDs.Death by bunga bunga entertainment.I mean, why have the purse strings at all? Give the biatch Obama the whole credit card and let him rob (ahem, control) the banks for his vacation management in Hawai.All the past Genocides legitimize these vacations, it is so dignified.And the Secret Service muting our freedom of speech and right to stand up straight to their faces during campaigns... yeah, whatever.I just love to see an easily stuck on stupid government trying to attack and dig up further its own grave trying to make right by making more wrongs. It's great endebting behavior. It needs to continue.Conservatives need to continue challenge their stuckness and doing more and more wrong until this sheiz flushes itself away completely, heads in their own arses. The whole deal gang of them, domestic and foreign homosexualoid bunch of them.Go ahead, make my day, kill and rob the elderly instead of asking them how they raised money for their retirement. Nothing like a bunch of dumbass bureaucrates telling us how to do it instead of keeping to ju ...

(Me): ...but for which he should be impeached...
(Me): Read this post and its followups for something very serious that Bœhner did (on video!) not long ago that IMHO renders him not only unsuited to be Speaker of the House, but for which he should be impeached.
wjmorris3: We're rebuilding just fine here in New Jersey
cretinbob: wjmorris3: We're rebuilding just fine here in New JerseyJust because things are going well on your block, and I hope they are, doesn't mean they are going so well on the next block over. Have you paid for all your repairs already, in full?

Have you paid for all your repairs already, in full?iNo repairs were needed here. I still think that the government has more pressing matters to deal with than helping people in blue states.
Kittypie070: I wonder if Mr W J Morris 3 of Toadfart, Alaska, comprehends that there are Reds living in blue states.
SkittleBrau: Shaggy_C: Meh. Speaker of the House is a largely ceremonial position these days. Senate Minority leader, now there's the real power in the US Federal government. No bill can even get a vote without getting the green light from the minority party first.I'm thinking that second in the succession line to POTUS (right behind VP) is just a bit more important than a "ceremonial" position. Being Speaker is more than just a title.
ilambiquated: Gonz: Look, I realize this is Fark, but the man's name is pronounced "Bay-nher".Actually "Böhner" but that's pretty close. His family probably came from Nuremberg, and fled to America after the failed revolution of 1848. The name means they lived on a hill.
wjmorris3: Kittypie070: I wonder if Mr W J Morris 3 of Toadfart, Alaska, comprehends that there are Reds living in blue states.Have you considered how much of a leech New Jersey is on the United States of America? They get a ridiculous amount back of their tax dollars, why give them any more?
Shaggy_C: Senate Minority leader, now there's the real power in the US Federal government.
COMALite J: You didn't read the followups like I asked, did you? Your questions were already answered in that long-closed thread.
Deucednuisance: COMALite J: You didn't read the followups like I asked, did you? Your questions were already answered in that long-closed thread.Yes, I did, and no, they weren't.That why I asked.You've made no case, whatsoever.
• And that leads us to the really big difference in seriousness between the two: You just watched the Speaker of the United States Congress House of Representatives, arguably the most powerful directly elected person in the nation, completely ignore the very basis of democracy in a key vote for his own Party, involving his own delegates! This brings up a vital question: has he done this before, in Congress!? Has he sent bills on to the Senate or even the President that did not actually pass a majority vote of the House? Has he declared bills as not passing that did pass? We just watched him demonstrate how willing he is, without a hint of shame, to flagrantly perjure the results of a floor vote! This, mind you, for his own Party! These happen in the House as well!
COMALite J: If he corrupted even one House floor vote as we saw and heard him do without a hint of shame nor twinge of conscience for the RNC rules change vote,
COMALite J: that would at the very least justify removing him as Speaker,
COMALite J: criminal charges of malfeasance in office may well be in order.

COMALite J: Why on Earth, if my speculations turn out to be true, should nothing come of this?
COMALite J: Please do so if you can find an example of a Democrat doing this, too.
