That Voodoo That You Do So Well

Operatives are standing by.

Mark Sanford: Refused stimulus. Disappeared for days on Adventure Trip, ultimately confessed affair with Argentine firecracker.

Bobby Jindal: Refused stimulus. In a major national appearance, provoked comparisons to intern character on popular sitcom.

Sarah Palin: Refused stimulus. Unwed-mother daughter named national spokesperson for abstinence campaign sponsored by sexy-teen clothing company. Last seen picking a fight with late-night television host.

Rick Perry: Refused stimulus. Last seen rallying Texas to secession.

Haley Barbour: Refused stimulus. Family and friends cashed in on Katrina recovery funds.

Butch Otter: Refused stimulus. His name is Butch Otter.


Sung to the Road Runner Theme

If you’re a governor and Obama gives free cash.
Just take the dough or you might just look like an ass.
Obama, Obama spends the taxes all day.
Even Limbaugh can’t make him change his ways.

Obama, them Repubs’ are after you.
Obama, if they refuse you then they’re through.
Obama, them Repubs’ are after you.
Obama, if they refuse you then they’re through.

Those governors are really crazy clowns,
When will they learn they can never turn him down?
Poor little Obama trying not bother anyone,
Just giving cash for roads his idea of having fun.

OK. Who’s next?

I would so love it to be Butch Otter because, as nojo puts it, he is… Butch Otter. But we mustn’t be greedy. It needs to be someone who, apart from the comedy name, can bring a sufficient level of high-minded Republican cant to the table. Someone who can come up with lines like “the self of self is indeed self.” (I see that nojo had his eye on that tag too. I might have it tatooed on my ass) I must say, his wife is doing her bit to match him in fatuousness. But then, who else would marry such a narcissistic gasbag? I shall spend a good part of today imagining Sanford on his knees in a prayer circle on D street (or was it C?) asking his Lord and Savior for forgiveness. I only hope his spiritual advisor will be there to aid him in his recovery. Men too stupid to be able to read People magazine with any depth of understanding who imagine themselves expert in all things moral.


And it’s only June, people! Think of when August hits. When Pussy Madness© has DC in its grip. Apart from Dupont Circle and parts of Georgetown. OK, most of Georgetown with smatterings of Foggy Bottom. It can only get better.

Meanwhile, fuck Gary Sinese.

Whereupon I lose another game of Wordscraper to SFL. She’s a tough competitor. And she knows how to use power tools. And she understands the “offsides” rule in soccer. GMAFB here.

@Benedick: Of all the religious self-righteous whackjobs in Congress, I’d like to see this clown exposed as the latest GOPer with his dick in the wrong hole.

Cocktober can’t come soon enough.

@blogenfreude: Yes, Brownback, he of the “snowflake” embryos, would be delightful. Though dare I fantasize about either one of Oklahoma’s senators going down?! I would squeal like an 8 year old girl at a Jonas Brothers concert.

@Dodgerblue: You only lost by 3 points, and you were running the board for a while. You had me nervous for most of the game.

@SanFranLefty: Brownback would be almost as good as McConnell getting caught blowing a dude at the Twin Bridges Marriott.

@blogenfreude: I think it’d be more likely he’d get busted blowing a dude under a bridge.

BREAKING: SCOTUS rules 8-1 in favor of 13-year-old girl in Arizona strip search case.

@ManchuCandidate: Who do you think? Thomas, of course. 4th Amendment doesn’t apply to minor females – they were chattel in the 1790s.

@SanFranLefty: Thanks for this alert. I am pleased (and amazed) that SCOTUS as currently constituted made a right decision for a change.

Speaking of the law, wouldn’t it be delicious if a rogue South Carolina prosecutor indicted Sanford for fornication and adultery, crimes under state law?

@SanFranLefty: Do they have criminal code sections covering stupidity and sanctimony?

@SanFranLefty: I was stunned when I heard. So thankful. And no doubt Jenny and her team of legal sharks are investigating the possibilities of holding criminal charges over his head. Especially when moron was stupid enough to leave a trail of e-mail evidence.

@SanFranLefty: Of course the decision also gave qualified immunity to the school officials – so no damages. The majesty of the law!


I’m terrified to open my game with her, and can only do so at home, surrounded by loved ones.

A Man Who Is Not A Total Asshole: Ryan O’Neal was at Farrah Fawcett’s bedside this AM when she died.

@Tommmcatt doesn’t mind if he doesn’t make the scene: Darling, you’re well within striking distance and there’s still a ways to go in that game. Dodger has weakened my Wordscraper spirit and confidence as I barely squeaked by him.


I’m actually just fattening your ego to sandbag you from behind.

BWAHAHAHA! It’s on!!!!


@Tommmcatt doesn’t mind if he doesn’t make the scene: It is really sad. The words anal and cancer should never, ever have to go together, let alone kill someone.

@SanFranLefty: None of us are buying this modest reassurance you keep dishing out about Wordscraper–we all know you’re a formidable, almost supernatural opponent! I’m still trying to scrape up the courage to get back in the fight with our inactive game, the one where I’m already over 100 points behind after about 5 turns. Once more into the breach, dear friends!
