A Democrat With Balls

1 10 2009

To those poor insulted Republicans who say “no” to every health care reform that comes up in the House and Senate Alan Grayson says cry me a river.  Grayson had the balls to come on the Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer and once there pulled no punches in his assessment of the Republicans and their stall tactics…and good for him too.  Kudos to you sir.

And to you neanderthal Republicans out there who disagree with him I encourage you to go ahead and prove him wrong or quit your whimpering.

Here’s Grayson’s speech on the House floor that started all the noise…

And here’s his smack down on the Situation Room.

Good stuff.

Franken Talks Sense To Teabaggers

5 09 2009

Confronted at the Minnesota State Fair by a group of angry teabaggers, Senator Al Franken took the time to talk reasonably and sensibly to them using something they had never heard before…logic and facts. He was FAR more patient than I would have been. Kudos to you sir.

Us And Them

31 08 2009

A truly inspired piece of work by Driftglass and Joe Max. Watch and just wonder why all the teabaggers didn’t get upset before, yet now they’re shouting about how the gummint is taking over their Medicare. So many idiots being manipulated by Republicans and insurance companies that have no interest whatsoever in really helping solve the problems real people face.

Real Time’s Real Reporter Dana Gould makes a good contrast between the protesters with health care and the people who actually need health care.

Lawrence O’Donnell Finally Calls Propaganda Lies

Vodpod videos no longer available.

FINALLY a reporter on television is willing to call these Republican bastards out as the lying sacks of shit they are.  After finally getting Culberson to admit that he would have voted for both Social Security and Medicare, O’Donnell calls him out for the fear mongering done by Republicans on the issue of health care reform, and tells him they’re lying to the American people every time they demonize socialized medicine, but refuse to vote to repeal Medicare.

You can watch the entire exchange at MSNBC’s web site.
