Senator says Obama ‘got nerve’ to push lawmakers [AP]

Yeah, Chuck. ‘Cause people aren’t going bankrupt or dying because of health issues in US America and they can wait while you gentlefolk scratch your asses and play your games.

U can’t push me
U can’t push me
U can’t push me
U can’t psuh me

My-my-my-my (U can’t push me) politics hits me hard
Makes me say,”oh my lord up yours for pushing me
With a mind to rhyme and two hyped feet”
It feels good
When you know you’re sown
Republican farmboy from the Cornpone
And I’m known as such
And this is a beat-uh!
U can’t push me

I told you White House
U can’t push me
Yeah, that’s what we doin’ and you know
U can’t push me
Look in my eyes,man
U can’t push me
Yo, let me bust the funky lyrics
U can’t push me

Fresh new kicks and pants
You got it like that now you know you wanna dance
So fly back from Paris
And get your fly girl and catch my beat
While it’s rolling
Hold on
Twit a little bit and let ’em know it’s going on
Like that
Like that
Cold on a mission so fall on back
Let ’em know that you’re too much
And this is a law
You can’t push

Yo! I told you
U can’t push me
Why you standing there, man?
U can’t push me
Yo,sound the bells, Senate is in, sucker
U can’t push me
Send him a twat or tweeter
Making ’em sweat
That’s what I’m giving’em
Now they know
You talk about the Grassley, you’re talking about a Senator
That’s cold and hard
People are dying so send them a card
Or a pill for that
What it is going to take in the double 0s
For insurance
Legit healthy not sick or you might as well die

That’s the word,because you know
U can’t push me
U can’t push me

Break it down

Stop. . . Grassley time

Lower junior aide hip-coolness FAIL.

Sometimes I think the musical references on this site are meant to elicit goodness from our very own ManchuCandidate. Well done, sir. Again.

[@CGrassley — POTUS was in France in re Normandy, DDay. Chk yr bberry. Kthxbai.]

Seconds later Grassley twitted:

I just Pwned da preznit… LOLZ! Dont mess with da l33t S@n@t3 haxx0rz, O8@m@! cuz all your base r belong to us!!!!

@chicago bureau: Wonder what Grassley would have made of Patton’s desert caravan vacay in north Africa?

@rptrcub: Werd to your mother.

@ManchuCandidate:Someday we should put together a songbook of your greatest hits.

Chuck puts the “twit” in “Twitter”. What a useless activity.

@nojo: Must point out that 13-yr-old boys do the same. Just sayin’. Now if Grassley’s reading Twilight, he might be a 13-yr-old girl.

@JNOV: I heard some guy on NPR confessing that he loved Twilight, and thought that it should be required reading for 13 y.o. boys precisely so they’d get a better understanding of 13 y.o. girls.

TJ: The four most conservative members of the Supreme Court have no problem with rich people buying their judges.

@SanFranLefty: Speaking of judges, I’m happy to report that the Cherokee princess whose application we discussed a couple of weeks ago did not get an interview with the appellate court commission. So her buddy, the governor, will not get the opportunity to appoint her.

Ha! Ha!


He he~! It’s funnier when you imagine him doing it with DJ Rove as a backup.


They should just cold declare themselves royalists and be done with it.

@Nabisco: Well, I work with late 20s-40ish people, and they are passing around those damned books like a crack pipe.

@SanFranLefty: That’s why we have the federal court system, no? I mean, Jeez, anyone can buy a state court judge. Buying a federal court judge takes some real capital.

@Dodgerblue: I always figured the difference is that you can rent a state court judge, if you need to, for one case, but federal court judges take to the bench owned outright, and if you aren’t their owner, or if their owner doesn’t like you, you are screwed.

In fact, why don’t we just abolish this whole “Democracy” thing and establish a royal family? I propose Ellen DeGeneres and Portia DeRossi.

@Also sprach Tommmcatt: I don’t know. I caught about ten minutes of Ellen waiting for my car inspection on Friday, and she’s really gone downhill. No longer funny, and giving stuff away like one of those other lady daytime talk show hosts. But cheap shit, not good shit.

I propose Jon and Kate. I’m not really sure who they are, but they’re from Pennsyltucky and they apparently generate more drama than those other royals across the way.

@Prommie: In view of that, today’s decision, where Big Coal loses, is indeed rare.

In a couple of months, I’m going to be involved in a trial over the licensing of a ginormous proposed new coal plant in the great state of O-hi-o, as in “Four Dead In . . . .” I’m sure they just love out-of-state aging lefties butting into their local job creation etc.

@Dodgerblue: Yay for you and for us! As CA gets Eastern Rim air pollution, PA gets Ohio/WV air pollution. Not that we aren’t creating our own, but we don’t need theirs, too.

Fun fact re: environmental racism — trash incinerator plant located in my friend’s neighborhood. Fine particulate matter covered everything indoors and out. People dusted their homes and their cars daily.

To swing us back on-topic, speaking of right wingers unclear on the concepts of the tubez, I present Ed Whelan outting a blogger critical of his smears of Sotomayor. Of course, now Whelan’s email address has been shared with the world. Karmic blowback is a bitch, Ed.

@JNOV: Environmental justice litigation is part of my portfolio here at I guess I shouldn’t be surprised at how often siting decisions for polluting facilities are still “where the colored folks live.” One of the latest scams is “waste to energy” facilities ostensibly based on pyrolysis, not combustion, so — magically — there are no dangerous emissions!! Santa Claus is here!!


ooh, I like that, mostly because of the automatic Dukes and Dutchesses. Maybe the octomom too?


As long as I get to be the Sultan of Swing.

@Dodgerblue: Prommie should be the Earl of Sandwich, for obvious reasons.

@chicago bureau:
I bit. How could I not?

Wasn’t Jon and Kate really a live action version of a Simpsons ep, where Apu and his wife exploit their 8 kids for money? Oh, and HELL no.

@Also sprach Tommmcatt:
I’d have to refuse a title. Despite some royalist DNA, I’m a non titles kind of guy.

@mellbell: I want to be The Paraclete of Kaborka.

In related news, Ebonics has reached Iowa.

@nojo: “Handling 140 characters well.” included in that list. Made me laugh uncontrollably.

@Also sprach Tommmcatt: Can I be the Jesus of Cool?

If that is too pretentious, I’ll accept court jester. Or knave.


Technically, I think that would have to be the “Christ of Cool”, but yeah, totally.


I thought you were that already.


You may be our troubadour and sing songs to our glory.

You’re welcome.

My bid to become Minister of Trout fishing here in New Mexico was rejected by the lt. governor, who asked me what I wanted after helping Bill Richardson get elected governor. I have since retired from The Game.

@Dodgerblue: On behalf of all the colored and poor folks who live near landfills, incinerators, chemical plants, oil refineries, etc., thank you.

There’s a great documentary made by some Washington State NA boys about how living near an oil refinery has hurt the tribe. Swinomish kiddos:

@JNOV: “Nick, who has his eye on the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, N.M.” . . .where a guy I know teaches filmmaking. Another filmmaker/sculptor friend is an administrator there. Wonder if the kids has made it there yet.

@Dodgerblue: @redmanlaw: Here’s the movie and an update:

@redmanlaw: Do you know a NuMuNu woman who teaches art in Santa Fe? Something Coffey?
