The GOP successfully filibustered a bill which would have provided free health care to 9/11 emergency responders who are suffering related health problems.
Anthony Weiner had something to say about it:
THIS is how you address obstructionist cunts who fuck over the people, and abdicate the responsibilities of the job for partisan political gain and shallow, hypocritical tactics.
THIS is what the Dems need, in spades, twice daily or as necessary.
THIS is how you talk to petty, vicious, incompetent pricks when they stand in the way of those who are trying to get some fucking work done.
Weiner, Grayson and Franken ought to be teaching a class – How to Address the GOP.
Franken, being the most genial, would teach the intro level.
Grayson, being the most stubborn and the one I want on my side in a bar fight, teaches GOPSOP 201.
Weiner picks up the advanced class – 301.
Franken does the graduate seminar – Sarcasm and Irony
IMAGINE, if the shitastic crapfest of rotten obstructionism were met regularly with this sort of answer: “No! The gentleman will sit down! I will NOT yield!”
Back when that sonuvawhore shouted “You LIE!”…I wanted Barack to walk right up to him…ask him to his face – nose to NOSE, “Who the fuck do you think you’re calling a liar, you ignorant, backward little shit?”
Go all Alexander Hamilton on his fuckwit cracker ass.
They sit silently, letting the ignorant wing of their base talk about insurrection, revolution, armed resistance…
Well, fuck that noise. And fuck the stubborn, petulant, malfeasant manner in which the GOP pretends to operate.
The time has come to get ALL the way up in their stunned Boehner, McConnell, Cantor faces.
Four months to midterms – like the last 20 seconds of the round. Time to come off the ropes and unload some heavy combinations. No more jabs…no more rope-a-dope. Time to open up some cuts and crack a few ribs.
