Apparently I wasn’t the only one to get the wild idea to taunt Jim DeMint with Abba. Apparently some merry Facebook pranksters had the same idea:

Heh, indeedy.

The pranksters are still having fun attaching pictures to his site:

    The moment HCR passed, I predicted that Drudge would pull out the old daily stock chart pic. And, he did… and he waited as long as he could until it was obvious that the market wasn’t going to tank. Now, it’s only a faded memory.

    Ugh, my subletter in the apartment (thankfully for all of 9 more days) is watching Faux News in the living room. I always suspected he was a closet Republican but my drunken heckling of Boehner last night while watching C-Span must’ve driven him over the edge.

    What a turd sandwich.

    Hmm. So what battle are the wingers going to fight next? Will immigration reform be Obama’s El Alamein? Will financial regulation be his Cannae? Cap and trade his Dien Bien Phu?

    Um, Mr. Cole, I believe the picture on the horse was used in support of the public option. You better take it down, lest you violate the decorum of the intertubes… :)

    I just found out that the rental house I was hoping to get is all mine! The move is going to go so much smoother now that I know Max the Wheaten and I have a house with a yard to move into.

    Going to be living in Camas, WA (Prune Hill actually). So friggin’ excited. I want to move now!

    Looks like he scrubbed all the Waterloo links. Time to reload.

    You’re implying DeMinted actually knows how to use a computer. It’s some dipshit 20-something staffer who’s scrubbing that stuff. DeMint wouldn’t know how to point a mouse (speaking as a former resident of the Palmetto State).

    Speaking of southern nutjobs, we have a candidate running against the ever odious Virginia Foxx. There’s a meet and greet with Billy Kennedy in Winston-Salem tomorrow evening; details on Facebook. It’s less than a two hour drive so my husband and I will probably be there. Unfortunately, I opted for the B-J mousepad so I won’t be recognizable by a Tunch or Lilly shirt; sorry.

    I do loves me some Jane Mayer. In the forthcoming issue of the New Yorker, she detonates a Truth Vest and destroys Thiessen’s book.


    The money quote is right at the end – and it is as much about Obama as it is about Thiessen. Sad but true:

    By holding no one accountable for past abuse, and by convening no commission on what did and didn’t protect the country, President Obama has left the telling of this dark chapter in American history to those who most want to whitewash it.

    Absolutely hilarious! Nice to see an accurate portrait of DeMint that is suitable for hanging. No, not that kind of hanging… we don’t swing that way. :)

    What is hilarious about the bill passing is that Obama sat right there in that meeting with the House Republicans and told those shitheads that they have essentially painted themselves into a corner. That they can’t participate in the legislative process any more without fear of retribution. They have frozen themselves out of the process, making themselves completely irrelevant, and they did it with the help of one Democrat. Who could have guessed that all it would take to get Republicans to bow out of the governing process to elect a president who wasn’t pasty white?

    Thanks to President Obama and you Obots who helped to put him in office. Yes we can and yes we did! :)

    I’m about six+ hours south (and west) of there and pass through when I decide to take the Washington side of the gorge over to the Tri Cities.

    I prefer hauling ass on a restricted two lane with rarely a cop ever around. I beat the I-84 traffic all of the time going that way and it’s fun on a motorcycle. Same when driving the Mustang.
