It looks like House Dems led by Nancy Pelosi have succeeded in keeping their fucking knees from knocking long enough in fear of the shitheel Republicans to pass a FISA amendment bill that lacks the most egregious of Bush’s self- and corporate oligarch-supporting measures. And Pelosi stood up strongly against the sick-fuck right-wing accusation that Dem opposition to expanded warrantless eavesdropping powers and retroactive telecom immunity is gonna mean YOUR CHILDREN ARE GOING TO DIE DIE DIE!~!!!~!W!!!11!11!~!~1~1111!!!!!:

Bush appeared on the White House’s South Lawn Thursday to demand House passage of the Senate legislation, warning lawmakers: “The American people understand the stakes in this struggle. They want their children to be safe from terror.”

Then the House went off script. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) responded by all but calling the president a liar.

“We understand our responsibility to protect the American people. What the president is trying to do is something that we think should be stopped,” she said. “I am stating a fact. The president is wrong, and he knows it.”

Glenn Greenwald put on his hip-waders this morning and went over to National Review (the demented right-wing propaganda rag founded by recently-deceased hateful racist sick-fuck William F. Buckley) to see what the nation’s most respected conservative commentators have to say about the pressing issues of the day. Here’s PhysioProf’s paraphrases of the pieces Greenwald found: Read the rest of this entry »

Is it really that fucking difficult for the ridiculous shitbag “journalists” in our mainstream media to figure out that referring to the prostitute patronized by Eliot Spitzer as a “hooker” is hateful misogynistic garbage?

“It’s 50 and partly cloudy today. Late breaking news: here are the latest photos of Governor Spitzer’s sexy hooker. Our other top story today is the rescue of a local schoolgirl’s cute little kitten from the top of a tree.”

What the fuck is wrong with these despicable pieces of shit!? It’s one thing to hate women so much. It’s yet another to be so oblivious to it.

Coturnix has a nice post up concerning the obsession of asshole right-wing Republican motherfuckers with “manliness”. Let’s be very clear on one thing: The only people left in the Republican Party right now are (1) insane wackaloon right-wing douchemonkey authoritarian followers, (2) greedy power-mad sick-fuck corporatist oligarchs, and (3) insane wackaloon right-wing douchemonkey authoritarian leaders who are tools of the greedy power-mad sick-fuck corporatist oligarchs. All this “manly” shit is part of their clever scheme for keeping the insane wackaloon right-wing douchemonkey authoritarian followers in line by serving them a toxic brew of fear, hate, and rage.

I am getting wind of people–including some progressive bloggers–who are just freaking the fuck out with their Obama or Clinton mania. Some of them are going so far as to petulantly stamp their feet and promise to vote for McCain or Nader if “their” candidate doesn’t get the nomination.

Hey, dipshits! You can’t have a successful political party without loyalty, which is defined as party before candidate. This is the entire fucking reason political parties exist, to channel loyalty into political power. That is it. No loyalty means no party means no power. It’s as simple as that.

It is mind-boggling that some Democrats need this shit explained. Like they have just been fucking sleeping, or hitting the bong, for the last thirty years or something.

I haven’t had the fucking patience to learn about what this primary campaign NAFTA foofaraw is about. Best I can tell, first one of them accused the other of secretely assuring Canada that we were good with NAFTA, while publicly disclaiming it. And then it turned out the accuser was the one who some douchemonkey Canadian claims actually provided the secret assurance. Whatever.

Either kill me now, or I’m going to stay drunk out of my fucking mind until the general.

After her strong win in Ohio and thin win in Texas last night, Hillary Clinton made the rounds of the morning “news shows” (i.e., lame-ass fluff shit parades). She said some totally fucking fascinating shit: Read the rest of this entry »

Earth-Bound Misfit posted yesterday about some Bush regime fuck-ups at the Centers for Disease Control, noting:

Organizations like the Centers for Disease Control are large and
complex structures, they take time to build right, but very little time
to destroy. Read the rest of this entry »

There have been some interesting responses to my recent post Hey, Barack: FUCK YOU! Some wise commenters have been all like “Yeah, PhysioProf! You kick ass!!” Some benighted souls, however, have been all like, “Hey, PhysioProf, you fucking naif! Obama is just doing what it takes to get elected. Republicans won’t like him if he honestly espouses liberal values.” I want to analyze this reaction in more detail right now. Read the rest of this entry »

Hey, Barack: FUCK YOU!

March 2, 2008

I am so fucking pissed off right now, my eyes are crossing. Alicia at Last Left B4 Hooterville posted a quote from an Obama speech last week to supporters in Austin, Texas:

“Oh, he’s liberal,” he said. “He’s liberal. Let me tell you something. There’s nothing liberal about wanting to reduce money in politics that is common sense. There’s nothing liberal about wanting to make sure [our soldiers] are treated properly when they come home. There’s nothing liberal about wanting to make sure that everybody has healthcare, but we are spending more on healthcare in this country than any other advanced country. We got more uninsured. There’s nothing liberal about saying that doesn’t make sense, and we should do something smarter with our health care system. Don’t let them run that okie doke on you!” Read the rest of this entry »
