If Max Baucus Has His Way, I’m Joining the Racists – I Mean, Teabaggers

By now it is common knowledge that Blue Dog Montana Democrat Senator Max Baucus is a kept man, a lap dog of the health care lobby.

“In the past six years, nearly one-fourth of every dime raised by Baucus, D-Mont., and his political-action committee has come from groups and individuals associated with drug companies, insurers, hospitals, medical-supply firms, health-service companies and other health professionals. These donations total about $3.4 million, or $1,500 a day, every day, from January 2003 through 2008.”
– The Montana Standard, June 14, 2009

With Baucus’ bill finally emerging from the Senate Finance Committee, we are learning he intends to carve chunks off of Medicare, reduce aid to people struggling with health care premiums, and force everyone into the private insurance system by levying fines for those unwilling or unable to buy in. How that’s going to work, I cannot say. If you can’t afford insurance, you can’t afford a fine for not having it, either.

Not only would all this be a total betrayal of any half-ass attempt at improvement President Obama may have intended for our dilapidated health care system, but it would be a total give-away to the very pirates who have ruined the system in the first place: the same interests whose lobbyists have been dumping money into Baucus’ campaign coffers for the past six years.

more like confused grudgefuck…..

I’m sorry, I was spacing out for a second there.

I have every reason, having just returned from “The Dead” at John Paul Jones Arena, Charlottesville (our arena is named after the bass player for Led Zeppelin? Can I get a “FUCK YEAH!?”), following a rigorous afternoon trying to figure out what the hell the “tea partiers” were talking about in the Downtown Pavillion,…. and well,

I’m a CONFUSED LITTLE AMERICAN! Continue reading

You call that a party?

Rick Santelli started a real shit storm when he announced from the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange that he didn’t want to bail out errant mortgage holders and was instead contemplating a “tea party” in Chicago. Since that day, Republican nit-wits have been coming out of the woodwork, including useless windhole Michelle Malkin, “Contract with Fellatio” Newt Gingrich, and the Howard Beale of the new world, Glenn Beck. (who lends new meaning to the term “vapid.”) Continue reading

I have Conservative friends. People I love but cannot for the life of me fathom. I know Deadheads who call themselves Republican. That’s just messed up.

In the spirit of Bill Maher, I hereby impose a New Rule:

If you voted for George W. Bush twice, YOUR OPINION NO LONGER MATTERS. Continue reading
