Conservative Madness

(sent in by a friend)

You didn’t get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a President.

You didn’t get mad when Cheney allowed Energy company officials to dictate energy policy.

You didn’t get mad when a covert CIA operative got outed.

You didn’t get mad when the Patriot Act got passed.

You didn’t get mad when we illegally invaded a country that posed no threat to us.

You didn’t get mad when we spent over $600 billion (and counting) on said illegal war.

You didn’t get mad when over 10 billion dollars just disappeared in Iraq.

You didn’t get mad when you found out we were torturing people.

You didn’t get mad when the government was illegally wiretapping Americans.

You didn’t get mad when we didn’t catch Bin Laden.

You didn’t get mad when you saw the horrible conditions at Walter Reed.

You didn’t get mad when we let a major US city, New Orleans, drown.

You didn’t get mad when we gave a $900 billion tax break to the rich.

You didn’t get mad when the deficit hit the trillion dollar mark.

You finally got mad when the government decided that people in America deserved the right to see a doctor if they are sick. Yes, illegal wars, lies, corruption, torture, stealing your tax dollars to make the rich richer, are all okay with you, but helping other Americans…oh hell no!

Conservative Failures

Ah, this article at Talking Points Memo is a thing of real beauty.

 

Update: here is an alternate web site with the same article. Apparently the original one was getting overwhelmed with hits.

Barney Frank Rocks

An article appeared this week on CNN about how Congressman Barney Frank reacted to some idiot woman. She had a photo of President Obama with a Hitler mustache drawn on, and likened some health care proposals to Nazi policies.

Frank reacted “You stand there with a picture of the president defaced to look like Hitler and compare the effort to increase health care to the Nazis [...] Trying to have a conversation with you would be like trying to argue with a dining room table“.

Barney Frank is my Hero of the Week, for sure.

I don’t care what side of the issue you’re on, making comparisons to Nazis and Hitler is completely idiotic. There’s no polite way to put it – the woman Frank was responding to is a simpering moron. Someone ought to slap her a few times, as she probably won’t get the point by using just her limited brain power.
