The Cain Scrutiny

Artist - John Darkow

In other news, the Senate Republicans, along with two Democrats, successfully blocked an infrastructure and jobs spending bill today which, among other things, would have created a national infrastructure bank.

One of the supposedly-Democratic collaborators was Joe Lieberman, while the other was Senator Ben Nelson.

      I’m not sure what this is, but it makes more sense than one of Rick Perry’s speeches.

        This kind of thing is really annoying, right? I too was duped into reading half of it before realizing what it is..

    Heard this one today from a friend:

    “George W. Bush and Barack Obama somehow ended up at the same barber shop. As they sat there, each being worked on by a different barber, not a word was spoken. The barbers were even afraid to start a conversation, for fear it would turn to politics. As the barbers finished their shaves, the one who had Bush in his chair reached for the aftershave. Bush was quick to stop him saying, ‘No thanks, my wife Laura will smell that and think I’ve been in a whorehouse.’ The second barber turned to Obama and said, ‘How about you sir?’ Obama replied, ‘Go ahead; my wife Michelle doesn’t know what the inside of a whorehouse smells like.'”

    See, Obama has failed us again. He continues to do nothing for Progressives.

    Lieberman & Ben Nelson — go figure.

      At least Lieberman will be out after the next election. That’s a win-win. We’ll either get a real democrat or at least someone who is open about being an agent of the GOP.

      Those a**hats apparently both broadcasted their willingness to consider this one. Which looked like a silver lining, but.. seems that they just wanted a little more time to formulate their excusses.

      I think it was Rachel who pointed out that, that it’s the most important critera to bringing a couple of R’s over on a vote – you won’t get that unless every last D is united on a bill.

      These Conservadem Pricks are the by far the biggest hinderance to progress in America!

        To clarify – I meant to attribute that to Rachel Maddow above. I’m pretty sure that’s where I heard this.

        One way or another, it’s the Conservadems that I hate the most. I guess it’s the same, in a bass-ackwards kind of way, as the wingnuts vitriolic hatred for Mittens Williard Romney. I really hate Lieberman more than any other politician out there. That sleezy little fuck!

        I was relieved to see Charles Pierce’s comment. If you wish them dead, I’d say you’re taking it a little far, but at least you’re in good company.
