We’re Gonna Need a Bigger Douchebag

We don't have the koyach to deal with douchebags.We may need to revise our South Carolina Douchebag Standings, following this stunning debut by two county Republican chairmen:

There is a saying that the Jews who are wealthy got that way not by watching dollars, but instead by taking care of the pennies and the dollars taking care of themselves. By not using earmarks to fund projects for South Carolina and instead using actual bills, DeMint is watching our nation’s pennies and trying to preserve our country’s wealth and our economy’s viability to give all an opportunity to succeed.

Mind you, this was a defense of Jim DeMint’s prowess at haggling. What a gutte neshumah he is!

More like Penny Wise, Trillions of dollars in debt foolish.

Personally I’m mighty proud of that Sen. Jim DeMint trying to get rid of the “onerous testing” for harmful products aimed at the kids. Lord knows where Congress got the idea there could be anything wrong with all of the crap made in China and available at your friendly neighborhood Wal Mart.

No, it’s because of the kosher laws that we did not become pigfuckers.

@Dave H: He figures why should Haliburton and KBR be the only companies with immunity from litigation?

Cute break. Still working… local time 8:15pm. Started at, well, 8:15am.


What’s astonishing is that these are the same people who have become unreconstructed supporters of the far-right Likudnik politics of unrepentant Israeli expansionism , even as they hold medieval stereotypes of “money grubbing Jews.”

@Serolf Divad: No astonishment here, the rebuilding of the Temple, is, IIRC, a prerequisite for the second coming, or Ragnarok, or the Rapturok, or something. They want the jews in sole control of Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount, for religious reasons.

Whats astonishing, to me, is that the entire southern wing of the repubulican party believes in a luddite ideology, luddite in the social and governmental sense, rather than the technological sense, and want to destroy the idea of government as an instrument for social good. That these only true christians believe in an ideology of might makes right and winner take all and fuck the losers, and racism and xenophobia and hate and retribution and evil.

@ManchuCandidate: That dachshund has a higher IQ that the entire SC congressional delegation put together.

thanks for that manchu!
i’ve had dogs all my life. wonderful, loving, well behaved and DUMB as doorknobs. i even gave them IQ tests that i found somewhere and the results were pitiful.
here’s one of the test questions: you show your pooch a yummy treat, let him sniff it, then put it on the floor and cover it with a paper cup. a smart dog will immediately knock the cup over with his nose or paw. my little angels would look at me and say, where did it go mommy?
now the borzoi is very food motivated, so he did well on this one, but failed miserably at the other 9 tests.
sorry for rambling nonsense, i’m missing the little guys tonight.

You’re welcome.

Doxies are very food motivated and reasonably intelligent. For Xmas, we used wrap up her doggie treat box and she knew exactly where it was. Tore it apart.

I doubt my dear departed was as smart as the one in the video, but she loved to fetch.

@baked: Where is everyone? They didn’t come with you? I can’t wait for colder weather. I’m sick of pulling ticks off our packette.

we are now only a pack of 5. the 2 kittehs, sergio the borzoi, and me and the ratbastard.
little bernie the shih tzu died on the flight from heathrow on our way back to the island. didn’t you know? he was 16 years old and failing, but i thought he would make it back to put him to rest next to his brother who died a year and a half ago at 17. i’m blue tonight. he had a wonderful life but i’m wracked with guilt that he died alone in a cage. inconsolable.
i thought you knew, i was carrying on terribly in the sandbox. i walked around carrying his ashes like a handbag for weeks. he’s on a shelf now. and i went back to our old house and took the gravestone that i made for his brother cody. i was successfully convinced to leave the remains in peace, which took a while with a patient rat. the rat cried when the airline called with the news, so i haven’t left him yet. i’m sad, thanks for listening dear benedick.
