According to a Senate source, the teabaggers are sending in lots of bags of tea to the Senate, requiring the “US Capitol Police Threats Assessment Section to x-ray, open and test the tea bags and envelopes,” costing much time and money.
You tax dollars at work, Stinquers! Fucking conservatives can always find ways to piss away this country’s money.
Republicans were sure pissed about that $410 billion spending bill that was brought by the SOCIALIST regime of Barack Hussein Bin Laden Obama, but apparently they are SOCIALISTS as well:
Fuckhead Fox News released their “Raw Data” thing, which is apparently from the incredibly biased group Tax Payers for Common Sense, a PAC set up to determine whether the GOP is awesome, or incredibly awesome. They made a list of the top 20 earmarking Senators around, and it turns out 8 of them are from the Republican party (WTF?):
1) Sen. Robert Byrd, D-W.Va. — $122,804,900
2) Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala. — $114,484,250
3) Sen. Kit Bond, R-Mo. — $85,691,491
4) Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif. — $76,899,425
5) Sen. Thad Cochran, R-Miss. — $75,908,475
6) Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska — $74,000,750
7) Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa — $66,860,000
8) Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla. — $53,133,500
9) Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. — $51,186,000
10) Sen. Daniel Inouye, D-Hawaii — $46,380,205
11) Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash. — $39,228,250
12) Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-N.D. — $36,547,100
13) Sen. Pat Leahy, D-Vt. — $36,161,125
14) Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill. — $35,577,250
15) Sen. Bob Casey, D-Pa. — $27,169,750
16) Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev. — $26,628,613

20) Former Sen. Pete Domenici, R-N.M. — $19,588,625
Well who knew! This is an amazing surprise! These tax and spend Republicans deserve retribution for their PROTECTION of your tax dollars. Never mind the Democrats on the list; everyone already knows they are commie-coons of death. (yes that is cut and paste from my site, but I’m lazy today.)
Oh, baby, tax me, tax me! Oh yeah! Harder. Come on, baby. Do it to me! Uh! oh yeah, daddy, tax me!
Inhofe, McConnell, and Shelby – three of the most ignorant Senators in the history of the Republic.
Jon Swift is hysterical today – a snippet:
And if some people cannot understand the subtle difference between wanting Obama to fail, plunging America into a Great Depression or wanting Obama’s policies to fail, plunging America into a Great Depression, then is it really worth the energy to try to explain to them what Rush really meant?
“These tax and spend Republicans…”
These spend and spend Republicans…
Heh heh, heh heh.
Yes, I’m going on 13.
@SanFranLefty: And another day without Stormy! It’s all good for you.
@blogenfreude: I’ll take Stormy over that Jack Cafferty ad anyday.
Tax me, baby, one more time.
STINQUE SPORT/SPORTS UPDATE: The Dominican Republic is scoreless with the Netherlands in the World Baseball Classic. The Dutch may beat them — twice, in the space of four days. Unreal.
@chicago bureau: Is the WBC real, or just an ESPN reality show?
nojo: If it were totally built for TV, they would just have Japan, South Korea, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Venezuela and U.S. America and do a round-robin or something. But Canada City’s got some game too. And thus you can’t have eight teams. And thus you get total also-rans like South Africa and the Netherlands (and an Italian team that is basically American players) to make it a nice round 16 team field, suitable for proper tournament play.
Hell, the WBC is as legit as the Little League World Series. And that’s enough. It’s baseball. All else being equal (as in not doped up), and with the exception of aluminum bats, there’s not much you can do to screw up baseball.
Teabag Harry Reid?? Not likely….
No Stormy for another day, plus getting season 2 of Flight of the Conchords in the mail yesterday from MellBell, almost makes up for the apparent failure of my anti-depressants.
chicago bureau / nojo — DOM 1:2 NED; Final(11). Stunning.
@SanFranLefty: Does it play correctly? It works on my DVD player, but you never know…
@SanFranLefty: And I’ve got Season 1 Disc 2 of Californication. Heaven.
@mellbell: I haven’t tried yet. We’re watching last night’s Daily Show right now, and we just got Season 1 Disc 2 from Netflix today, so it probably will be tomorrow before we try your disc. Thanks again, you are a doll!
@chicago bureau: Netherlands? Right. Nether-Land-S. Shh. Like I’m sposed to believe that wack. That like Never-Never-Land. Oz. And all the rest of Sport. This whole global Dominican Republic, Xanadu, Rapa Nui shit. It’s all some geek in his mom’s basement workin da tubez. Rad ma man! Ceptin how my homo and me was discustipatin’ da taxin. Oh yeah. @Original Andrew: You know you need it. Oh yeah. Take it baby. Take ma taxonomy! Mm mm! Uh huh!
@chicago bureau: Broncos start off-season conditioning next week.
@redmanlaw: Whatever. Sport. Tax me!
Tax. Earl Grey. Hot.
@nojo: Earl Grey in spandex. Is teh hot. Spanky. Spanky. Bad boy. Yeah. You go repeal the corn laws. On your knees!!!!
I’ll have whatever Mr. Benedick is drinking, please.
@redmanlaw: We’re sorry, sir, but Mr. Benedick has been invited to leave after molesting the corn dollies.
Oh wow. I don’t remember anything about last night. Hey, what happened to all my clothes, bro?
Is that kitty litter in your hair?
@Ewalda: And I don’t even have a
