Revenge of the Sith November 4, 2010

Fig. 1: Fueled by anger and self-righteous indignation.

Now that the Republicans have won a majority in the House, their new leader, Jar Jar Binks Mitch McConnell is basking in the glow of the fire burning in the Republic. From the Huffington Post:

Over the past week, some have said it was indelicate of me to suggest that our top political priority over the next two years should be to deny President Obama a second term in office,” McConnell will say at a speech to the conservative Heritage Foundation on Thursday at 11:00 a.m, according to his prepared remarks. “But the fact is, if our primary legislative goals are to repeal and replace the health spending bill; to end the bailouts; cut spending; and shrink the size and scope of government, the only way to do all these things it is to put someone in the White House who won’t veto any of these things. We can hope the President will start listening to the electorate after Tuesday’s election. But we can’t plan on it.”

Wait, so McConnell isn’t in favor of bailouts? Okay, then what about what he said just last year?

It’s not popular with his party, but Senate Minority Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is saying that the Wall Street bailout was a success — one year after the historic $700 billion vote.

The Troubled Asset Relief Program has “succeeded in stabilizing the banking system,” McConnell told reporters on the anniversary of the bailout’s passage.

But hey, he’s all about “small” government, right? About preventing government from interfering in the private lives of American citizens, right?

Not if you’re gay. No siree. If you’re gay, government gets to be all up in your business.

Anyway, Senator Jar Jar and his Repugnicant cronies are already salivating at the possibility of wasting millions of taxpayer dollars investigating President Obama:

Oversight will play a crucial role in Republican efforts going forward,” he said in his prepared remarks, adding, “Through oversight we’ll also keep a spotlight on the various agencies the administration will now use to advance through regulation what it can’t through legislation.”

In the House, Rep. Darrel Issa (R-Cali.) is likely to take over the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and aggressively use his newfound power to probe the administration. He has already gained praise in conservative circles for aggressively going after Obama on issues such as what offer the White House made Rep. Joe Sestak (D-Pa.) in an effort to persuade him to drop his Senate run.

Oh, joy. Mark my words; two years from now, people will wonder why this Congress got nothing done and will bitch and moan and kvetch and complain about the sorry state of the nation. And you know what I’ll say? I’ll say “You dumb, retarded, easily manipulated and swayed, weak-minded idiotic Tea Partying fucktards made this possible. You have no one to blame but your lazy, stupid asses.” It is beyond me how people can continue to vote for these plutocrats—how can people fall time and time and time again for the same stupid lies and fearmongering?

Oh, and don’t think the Democrats are gonna get off easy. You swept into office in 2008 with a clear mandate from the American electorate: Get. Shit. Done. You fuckers had two years and a clear majority, but dumbfucks within your own goddamn party started cockblocking—yes, you “Blue Dog” Democrats fucked shit up for everyone else. Congratulations, shitbags! I may find the Republican party reprehensible, but you have to admire their ability to rein each other in. Democrats? No, you fools keep finding new ways to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory and then flap about and whine about the dirty tricks played by the opposition. Well, now what are you going to do in the House, Democrats? I won’t even mention the uselessness of the Senate. Here’s the thing: the Republicans, fucked up though they are, have a clear party platform. Again, it’s reprehensible, it’s full of fearmongering, and it’s about as practical as anything that’s ever fallen out of the mouth of a politician. But you can rest damned assured that you know what they stand for. The Democrats? The best thing they’ve got going is that they’re The Other Guys.

And right now, that ain’t nearly enough in the face of the ascendance of Sith.

Mitch McConnell makes me want to hurt someone. Preferably, him! I loathe him.
