the senate this week voted more time-wasting and self-righteous resolutions than a southern baptist theological conclave. the menu included the "fuck off, move on" strangling of free speech resolution and the "bomb iran, part dieu" dessert course.
suckers ever, dems always fall for these liebermanian effusions.
this is the new role of the united states senate - an irrelevant jawing gaggle producing inane policy statements - an endless blusterthon, a c-span of f-troops, a b-list of a-holes; profiles in dotage.
next up they will take a wide stance debating the "times traitor prevention" act, the vital "britney haircut authorization" act, and the "spit shine the generals' boots" act.
these are "sense of the senate" resolutions.
when has this senate had any sense?
mister a. blister ray
unpronounceable, necktieless iranguy flew khomeni air into the big app this week. the reception was not sweet and delicious.
his visit pumped the hysterical bloviatariat to f-16 decibel levels. talking mouths foamed. op-eds goebbelsed. a college president became bill o'reilly.
we're re-entering september, 1939: "the poles are creating intolerable provocations against the glorious new order."
the bush admin readies the rollout of their blockbuster new hit "burkhaville blitzkrieg." coming soon to a war theater near you.
all of us vs. mall of u.s.
ken burns' war, showing on pbs, unlike bush's war, lacks a dipshit president, a jerkoff general staff, and an uninvolved citizenry.
and no disney world to fly to.
what was wrong with them back then?
was there no syntacticly challenged frat boy chief exec oozed in by a corrupt supreme court?
no minimum-wage army led by a covey of disposable lapdog generals?
no saponaceous cheering section plumping consumer excess?
no no-bid contracts?
they saved aluminum, steel, rubber? voluntarily?
they rationed gasoline?
they drafted people?
they were unified?
what a quaint old war.
