GOP Governors Break Ranks to Tell GOP to Hold the Line

You just can't make this shit up. Just days after several Republican governors such as Charlie Crist, Jodi Rell, Jim Douglas and Arnold Schwarzenegger signaled their support of the stimulus bill, a bunch of other Republicans broke ranks within their own party to tell the GOP Senate to hold the line. It's no coincidence that these other Republican governors are pretty much the most insane state executives in the land. They include Bobby "Let Me Do the Exorcism Because I Stayed at a Holiday Inn Last Night" Jindal and Sarah "Granny" Palin.

The best line came from Jindal when he said,
"I am seriously concerned by the large amount of debt being created by this legislation that will be passed down to our children and our grandchildren."

Funny dat since Jindal never said a word about "the large amount of debt being created by this legislation that will be passed down to our children and our grandchildren" in relation to Bush borrowing two billion a day from China to support the deficit or getting us into two winless wars that combined have already cost us well over a trillion dollars.

Then there was this pearl from Sarah:
"My fear is that, as written, we are only pouring more dollars into federal programs that will become unfunded mandates for states to continue funding for generations. None of us can afford that."

You mean like No Child Left Behind and the Real ID Act?

If the Republicans do it first, it's brilliant. If the Democrats are perceived as doing the same thing, they're flag-burning douchebags. Ain't it grand how bipartisanship works?

Frankly, I'm getting sick and tired of hearing about the stimulus bill, spending bill, or whichever each party is branding it. It's not a partisan football or ideological nerf bats. Pass the fucking thing already. Sure it sucks ($200,000,000 to re-sod the National Mall? Jesus fucking Christ, even Cheech and Chong never blew that much cake on grass!) But it's the best we can do on the short notice that George fucking Bush gave Obama when he handed him a flaming Hefty bag of dog shit that used to be a prosperous economy.

the gop motherfuckers would rather drag us down to the depths of deflationary hell than admit, just once, that they were fucking wrong. the basic problem is that the rich who benefitted from the tax cuts of reagan, bush, and bush (with some thrown in by clinton to boot) did not behave like the moral paragons of ayn rand's turgid novels.

they behaved like grasping, greedy, charlatans who were busy trying to loot the shelves before the disaster hit.

each democrat in congress should carry a squirt gun, or a can of silly string. when ever a republican spouts off about "deficit reduction" or "fiscal responsibility" hose that motherfucker down, with attendant pointing and giggling.

WTF is wrong with these people? Obama should tell congress, if you don't vote for the stimulus; your district will not receive any funds. The funds will be distributed elsewhere. Go home and explain that to your constituents.

I'd laugh my a$$ off if a Dem went "Denny Crain" all over a Repub, and nailed him with a blaze orange paintball.

The GOP knows if the bill passes, they will be consigned to the political wilderness for the next 50 years..for them it's deja vu all over again.

Cheney has a nuke planned for the US. They didn't do it while Bush was in office because that would have blown their "he kept us safe" narrative. But remember how 6 nukes disappeared last year? Only FIVE were recovered and everyone connected has been KILLED.
They are holding on to one in reserve and will use it right here in the good ole USA real soon.

Watch for it. . . these evil fucks will stop at NOTHING.
