Yeah, I think you can say some were underwhelmed.

Tim Minchin, he makes it all sound so simple.

Or to put it more succinctly

As heartfelt a gesture as I've ever extended to another human being

Banks Allocate 86% ($108B) Of Bailout Towards Compensation And Bonuses!

9 11 2008

Amazingly my ongoing outrage at the Republican party has been outdone by my new found rage towards the heads of the banking industry.  I just read a letter the honorable Henry Waxman sent to the CEO of Wells Fargo where he chastises him and eight other banks for putting $108 billion of the currently allocated $125 billion tax payer bailout dollars towards compensation and bonuses.

This is so reprehensible as to defy credulity.  If there were calls for regulation and oversight before I think it is clear that there should now be calls for the seizure of all personal assets, arrests, and imprisonment for these cowards and honorless thieves.

All of Al Qaeda’s attempts to wound this country combined pale in comparison to the damage the US has suffered at the hands of these craven traitors.  I would stop short of the death penalty only because I want these tender pampered racketeers to spend the rest of their lives in Guantanamo getting the best Dick Cheney has to offer because they are domestic terrorists of the highest order and deserve no less.

(hat tip to Driftglass for the initial point to the Waxman letter)





One Other Thing

7 11 2008

You know my last post where the republicans are finally fessing up to what an incompetent douche’ Sarah Palin really is?  Yeah, well we liberals have a little confession to make too.

Sorry about that, but it really feels good to come clean like that.  I suppose we’re even now, right?  Right?





GOP Innoculating Themselves Against “Palin 2012”

7 11 2008

Conservatives are peering into the smoking crater left behind by the McCain campaign and they don’t like what they see.  It is obvious to all now that a large part of McCain’s failure was due to the staggeringly short sighted and cynical selection of Sarah Palin.  The conservative power brokers are cognizant that any influence she might try to wield in the future would only serve to create more catastrophic disasters across the Republican national landscape.   This is a terrifyingly confident and ignorant monster of their own creation and they simply cannot risk the possibility it might someday wreak more havoc.

So if you think the liberal media was hard on Sarah you haven’t seen anything yet.  The  conservative propaganda machine is a wrathful beast and is not at all squeamish about eating one of its own.  Sarah Palin is about to be turned upon by the same charlatans who buttressed her high pedestal just three days ago, and the carnage should be so terrible as to transfix anyone who might accidentally gaze upon it.

That is to say, get your popcorn.
