Open Thread: Lest We Forget…

I too hope we can turf Lord Smallgloves and all his minions out of the Oval Office soonest, but somehow I misdoubt his GOP co-conspirators in the Senate will let the new turmoil distract them from their real mission: Funneling every penny from us non-white, non-male, not-rich non-Republicans to their plutocratic masters…

    sr White House official tells me they are adding women to the 13- person, all-male working group in Senate on healthcare bill

    Why? I mean doesn’t father know best? Don’t most men make all the medical decisions in their homes, especially when were talking about a bunch of septuagenarian and octogenarian white men, we need their sage advice to keep aspirin between our knees. Adding women who will just try to insert extraneous crap like health into what is really a fiscal and free will conversation.

    The GOP is now the party of outright treason. The taint is on them all.

    Now, hold on for just a second here. Hatch hasn’t been on the public health care dole for 40 years — he gets insurance through his employer. Oh, never mind.

    Saw Hatch’s tweet earlier today, sans context, and thought for a minute he’d had a stroke or something, because once the wealthy and corporate moochers get their hands on tax dollars they just want more, more, more.

    Huh. Are they adding actual women senators to the group or just some random women from the White House claque?

    I saw Orrin Hatch speak in the late 90s, and I thought he was a deranged unhinged paranoid rightwing hack back then. The idea that he represents “moderate” republicans tells the story of why our political process is fucked.

    How many women are they adding? Binders full of them?

    The notion that publicly funded health care is “the dole” is not just abhorrent, but ridiculous. Health care is not a Cadillac or a T-bone steak: you only partake of it because you need to, not because it’s something you’ll enjoy.

    I know this has become a right-wing talking point, but how anyone with an IQ above the freezing point gives it the least bit of credence is beyond me.

    Welcome ladies. Can we have you sit over there, that’s wonderful. And you two, one on either side of him. Good. You now, let’s have you more in front. And you’re looking at the papers in his hand. Beautiful. And just a little smile now. A little less smile…. OK now, a little more than that.

    OK, good work girls. Fantastic. We’ll be putting it out ahead of the vote this time.
