Well, Politico.com got manhandled today by Mike Pence, Republican't from Indiana. He's all fired up about what so many are saying today, that his party is in the grip of slime-mold salesman of the Far Wrong media. He seems to feel, the poor sod, that we-all are pickin' and grinnin' on his Godawfully Old Par-tay, and that, well, it's just not fair. (sound of foot stomping, repeatedly.) “So to my friends in the so-called ‘mainstream media’ I say, ‘conservative talk show hosts may not speak for everybody but they speak for more Americans than you do.’” Nyah, nyah, nyah. I'm takin' my ball and I'm goin' home. Well, don't let the door hit ya where the Lord split ya, as my old Gran used to say. (She was a regular peach, I tells ya.)
“Well, that's hogwash.
“To suggest that men and women that are taking a stand for fiscal discipline and traditional values in the national debate today only speak for ‘grassroots activists’ is absurd. As evidenced by the hundreds of thousands that filled town hall meetings this summer and the nearly a million Americans who gathered here in Washington in September. Millions of Americans, Republicans, Democrats and Independents are worried about liberal social policies and runaway federal spending, deficit and debt."
Mike, I hate to tell you, but hogwash is as hogwash does. (I have no idea what the hell that means, but Damn! it sounds good.) Yes, thousands of people went to these so-called town-hall meetings, and many spoke up. BUT. The majority of people who went to those meetings never had a chance to speak. Gee, I wonder why. Hmm. Could it have been the small handfull who went with talking points and instructions prepared for them by, Heavens! vested interests? Who then proceeded to shout down anyone with a different take on the situation, and yell their way onto the news (mostly on FOXY, of course. Wow, we made the news! Let's yell LOUDER tomorrow!!!) So Mike, while I see why you feel the need to masturbate, er, massage those numbers, well, you Gross Olde Parasites, for all your so-called "fiscal conservatism" (Hey, ya DID blow the surplus to smithereens, and ya DID blow the deficit into the stratosphere, but, what the hell, eh?) still haven't learned how to count. Maybe because it's too much like science, which, bein' un-god-like, is something you work day and night to keep out of your children's minds, just as your folks did for you. (Ah, family values. Kinda makes ya tingley, don't it?)
As for "...men and women that are taking a stand for fiscal discipline and traditional values in the national debate today...", well, I kinda think most who identify with the Groping Old Prairiedogs, who are at the lower end of the socio-economic ladder (sorry for the big words there, Mike,) are right about, oh, say, NOW, pretty broke, out of work, feelin' that "family values" might actually mean bein' able to feed their families, well, they have kinda had it with all the shouting and poisonous venom, spewed in the name of Idiot, er, Ideology, and just wished ya'll would put a cork in it and try to GET THE PEOPLE'S WORK DONE, so they can get back to work, and maybe keep their little over-priced domiciles, instead of forkin' 'em over to the banks. By the way, THAT was started on you-all's watch, too.
Anyhoo, ya do remember that old Biblical saying, don't you? (I expect you read that Good Olde Paperback, eh?) You know, the one about throwing stones while ensconced in glass palaces? Given the degree that you Greedy Old Pariahs worked over the so-called "liberal media," I gotta wonder, Mike - don'tcha believe in Karma?
You know what Karma is, don'tcha? Its just sinful behaviour that has unpredictible consequences. Or are you all just, "do as we say, not as we do?" Ooh, I sense a confession comin' on, Mike. Maybe 60 Minutes? Or is it Oprah? I guess ya COULD dance on that "reality" show, like yer bud, Mr. Delay and Confused. Hey, do you REALLY have "friends" in the "mainstream media," or are you just joshin' us?
You go, boy!
