We are having an interesting discussion over at the Questionable Authority of yesterday’s post and related issues. One of the related issues that has arisen is the notion that bipartisanship is an intrinsically good thing and “partisan rancor” is intrinsically bad. As one of Questionable Authorities commenters put it:
Please don’t stoop to their level and please don’t further inflame the already unproductively partisan politics we have in the society.
Depraved right-wing shitbags are all for “bipartisanship” and “reaching across the aisle” when Dems are in power. When Republicans are in the majority, not so much. I often wonder if these “moderate” assholes really believe their own bullshit, or if they are just outright liars.
Allow me to spell it out for those dumbfucks who haven’t been paying attention for the last 40 years. “Partisanship” is completely pragmatically and ethically neutral: it is intrinsically neither good nor bad. What matters is the policies of the parties involved. If “bipartisanship” means “letting Republicans continue to fuck shit up” then it is not a good thing. If “partisanship” means reality-oriented Democrats telling deranged Republican assholes who reside in a racist, misogynist, theocratic, neo-feudal fantasy world to sit the fuck down, shut the fuck up, and allow the rational adults to clean up the disgusting mess those assholes have made, then it is a good thing.
The Republican Party has spent the last 40 years completely utterly fucking up everything they have touched. It is time to shut the fuck up with the absurd apologetics. The only reason nonsense like this is even part of our political discourse is because of the toxic waste dump of our national press/media, who just can’t seem to unwrap their lips from around right-wing cock no matter how morally and pragmatically bankrupt right-wing politicians, politics, and policies become.

Many people have been wondering why Barack Obama is running around hat in hand trying to “reach across the aisle” to depraved sick-fuck America-hating Republican shitbags to seek support for his huge-ass eleventeen fucktillion dollar stimulus bill, when the Democrats have unstoppable majorities in both the House and Senate. He has even gone so far as to agree to remove any funding for state women’s health programs because baby jesus cries every time a dude shoots his load in a rubber.
Comrade PhysioProf doesn’t remember Stoopie McFuckwit going to Congress to reach across the aisle to try to seek Democratic support of anyfuckingthing, even when Democrats were in the motherfucking majority. As I recall, his strategy was to enlist his deranged scumbag minions in a systematic plan–with the enthusiastic support of our pathetic excuse for a “journalism” profession–to smear Democrats who failed to roll over for Stoopie as “America-hating traitors”.
Well, the idea has been floated that Obama’s behavior is really a brilliant double-reverse political jiujitsu that is not at all about Democrats caving–as they always do–to the screeching of the gutterswill wackaloon reality-impaired dregs of the ultra-far-right-wing of the Republican Party (who happen to be the only ones left in that pathetic ship of fools).
Rather, he’s setting them up under the glare of the mass media to be seen as the unreasonable party in contrast to what everybody watching him on TV is going to view as reasonable and respectful. In sum, he’s using them as props, and turning their weakness – their own frothing desire for “partisanship” – against them.
In the end, Obama’s “bipartisanship” is one of the most Machiavellian partisan maneuvers we’ve seen in Washington in a long while, and I use that description in its most admirable context. The Republicans fell right into the trap today. Progressives that urge Obama to be more “partisan” should pay close attention to how the GOP is getting pwned before falling into the same trap themselves.
h/t Questionable Authority, who agrees with this.
I guess this sounds nice and all, but I tend to be a little skeptical when Democratic caving to the caterwauling of the most depraved elements of the Republican Party, throwing important constituencies under the bus, and contributing to the destruction of our Nation–which happens all the fucking time and has been since infinity–is interpreted as some kind of brilliant Democratic political maneuvering, and not just weakness and fear.
I guess we’ll just have to see what the real deal is, but I am not very sanguine. One thing that makes this strategy nearly impossible for Dems is the fact that the press are such despicable hypocritical sacks of shit. When Bush was President, the press never ever considered it his responsibility to reach out to Democratic lawmakers, even when Democrats were in the fucking MAJORITY. Now that Obama is President, all the fucking asshole teeve “pundits” and “political analysts” are going on and on and on about how Obama “needs to convince Republicans blah, blah, blah”.
The dude has overfuckingwhelming majorities in both chambers and he “needs to convince Republicans blah, blah, blah”!?!? What he “needs to do” is tell those America-hating neo-feudal shitheels to sit down and shut the fuck up and take their goddam motherfucking medicine.
House Democrats are likely to jettison family planning funds for the low-income from an $825 billion economic stimulus bill, officials said late Monday, following a personal appeal from President Barack Obama at a time the administration is courting Republican critics of the legislation.

Comrade PhysioProf has decided to share a cool-ass drink that he concocted last night. It is a variation on the “Perfect Manhattan”, which traditionally contains a 2:1 proportion of bourbon to vermouth, with the vermouth equal parts sweet and dry, and a few drops of bitters. Here are the ingredients:
three shots Sazerac rye whiskey
four teaspoons sweet vermouth
two teaspoons dry vermouth
a few drops of Angostura bitters
lemon peel for the twist
Photos of the process and outcome are inside the fucking crack:

Chris Matthews is a fucking cancer on American society. It is the shame of the “journalism” industry that depraved sick fucks like him–who droolingly jerked themselves off on teevee over Stoopie McFuckwit’s flightsuit bulges and faceshot jism all over the motherfucking polity–still have a prominent venue for spewing their toxic waste. Scuzbuckets like Matthews have leeringly dragged this entire fucking country into the motherfucking gutter.
Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

It is totally motherfucking chapping my ass that there is only a single Google login that can be active on a given computer at a given moment in time for *all* Google apps: mail, reader, apps, calendar, etc. This is a total fucking pain in the ass for people who use multiple different Google accounts for different purposes.
Thank you for your attention to this matter, assholes!
