Poppe Quiz!!!!!!!!

May 8, 2011

What news outlet published an article containing this paragraph?

The problem is that the proposed [Republican] spending cuts would disproportionately affect the current generation of children. It’s emblematic of skewed priorities that the same Congress that on Apr. 15 approved Rep. Paul Ryan’s (R-Wisc.) budget proposal to exempt anyone 55 and older from changes in Medicare had less than two months earlier supported cuts of at least $7 billion in discretionary spending for children’s education. Slashed were such programs as the Even Start Financial Literacy Program, the High School Graduation Initiative, and Head Start. (The eventual compromise budget reached late on Apr. 8 focused cuts in other areas, such as high-speed rail.)

Mother Jones? Harper’s? Worker’s Daily?

Nope. Motherfucken Business Week.

    I’ve noticed that several business papers and websites have started sounding really liberal.

    When business papers and websites and the military start sounding liberal compared to the wackos in Congress, there’s a problem because the Overton window has marched firmly into reactionary territory.

    I’m not sure whether to laugh of just what exactly. I’m not sure banging my head on the table will help. It hasn’t really helped so far.

    Aqua Buddha apparently thinks medical care is slavery for doctors. Ironically, he’s only a mediocre one at best, since he invented his own board to certify himself because he couldn’t pass the actual board certification test.

  5. Katharine Says:

    I’m not sure whether to laugh or cry at Congress anymore. I think some of them qualify as mentally ill at this point.

    Not to knock on the mentally ill, but we don’t want a Congress full of them.
