93 is insanity to the nth degree, not 92 or 76… or 57! 93 is the line of crazy!

Recently Sen Lindsey Graham said about raising the debt ceiling

“we’ve done this 93 times. And if we keep doing the same old thing, then that is insanity to the nth degree.”


Why yes, yes of course, 93 times is where the ‘nth degree’ insanity level is.  Now, if it was just 92 times and let’s say a white, republican president.. well there’s no insanity there.

Seriously.. what the crap? 93 is where you finally stand up and say “Uh, no..not again”? That’s where the insanity started to get the ‘nth degree‘? Or is that just where the political points are triple word scores? Where your party stands to gain the most? You’ve whored yourself out 92 other times for a dollar, but this time.. well buddy this time you’ve got morals and principals.


What happens if congress doesn’t raise the debt ceiling? Let’s let Mr. Graham answer…

“Let me tell you what’s involved if we don’t lift the debt ceiling: financial collapse and calamity throughout the world. That’s not lost upon me.”

Oh well why didn’t you say so, financial collapse and calamity throughout the world, but lets’ not do something so insane as to raise the debt level a ninety-fucking-third time to prevent this world wide apocalypse like none we’ve ever seen before.. That would just be… insanity to the nth degree!

These people  make my ass twitch and if they don’t make yours twitch then you aren’t paying enough attention!

Rep. Michele Bachmann, one of the most outspoken conservatives in the House, has won an appointment to the secretive House Intelligence Committee

Well sure, when I think  “National Security”.. I think Michele Bachmann.
Members of the Intelligence panel receive classified briefings in a secure conference room in the Capitol, and are sworn to secrecy about most of the committee’s activities.
If raising the debt level, because if we don’t the world will literally collapse upon itself, is ‘nth degree insanity’ but appointing this woman to hold our national security secrets,thus giving her credibility when she makes stupid comments like ACORN will steal your identity and use it for voter fraud if you fill out the census, is perfectly sane then I want some of what this GOP leadership is smoking because that’s the best shit out there.

As more and more of this crap goes by, I am thoroughly convinced that the Mayans are right and the GOP knows it, or that all the “Book of Revelation” wishing GOP members  are doing everything they can to make that Mayan  prediction happen. Either way, I am convinced that we are seeing the last great days and entering into  the ‘end times’.

Point to Panetta

It’s about time someone said it…

“It’s almost, a little bit, gallows politics. When you read behind it, it’s almost as if he’s wishing that this country would be attacked again, in order to make his point.”

CIA director Leon Panetta says it’s almost as if former vice president Dick Cheney would like to see another attack on the United States to prove he is right in criticizing President Barack Obama for abandoning the “harsh interrogation” of terrorism suspects.”

Seriously, What is Dick Cheney’s point? What is his goal? For years he has done nothing but promote  “Me and my policy are all that keeps you safe at night” and bloviate how  we will be attacked again without him. Now his rhetoric is almost like a ‘code word’ for anyone who is against the Obama administrations National Security policy.  It’s like he’s talking to one or two lone nuts out there into proving that Bush/Cheney were right for the last 8 years.

Ironically, we were attacked while Dick was in office and after Dick ignored the pleas of those in the intelligence field to heed their warnings. So why would anyone take anything he has to say about keeping America safe as gospel is beyond me.  How about we listen to the ones who actually have kept us safe.

and stop giving Dick the pat on the head he’s looking for.
