I hope their lives get harder and harder and worse and worse and GOD DAMN IT I'M SO ANGRY. FUCK YOU GUYS.

Let Joe Biden alleviate a little of that anger with his stellar performance here:

Ahhh poor Republicans who vote against their own interests. I always like to imagine them at their $9-an-hour ditch-digging job, contemplating their shitty education, no health insurance, no growth potential, no union to improve their standard of living... and they're thinking to themselves, "Socialists are ruining this country."

Yeah, I always love this.  "They wanna take my money and give it to poor people".

Umm... no offense, but you ARE POOR.


That's the silver-lining to this global economic meltdown, I guess. The same idiots that carried Republicans on their shoulders for the past 25 years are now the ones melting down their gold teeth for grocery money.

I hope their lives get harder and harder and worse and worse and GOD DAMN IT I'M SO ANGRY. FUCK YOU GUYS.

Those people will NEVER make the connection between their shitty circumstances and the political movement they support, the lacuna of republican politics. I don't know if people are just now getting it because  republican hypocrisy is just so in your face nowadays (150K on clothes) but I said years ago to be a republican you either have to be dumb and/or evil. Dumb, because you just don't know, sad as that is we can all be lied to or be ignorant of facts. Evil, are the ones that are fully aware of their fucked up policies and become apologists for it. I just don't see a principled reason for following the GOP. Not to say one can't be conservative in ideals of culture of fiscal matters, but the modern GOP is neither of these in anything but rhetoric.

Who is that awful woman?  And did she also ask him when he stopped beating his wife?

She's married to a GOP consultant or something.  I'd say this was an audition for Fox, but she didn't interrupt him enough.

I'm not, I just don't like misdirected hate.
Breakfast- I'm havin' a time
Wheelies- I'm havin' a time
Headlocks- I'm havin' a time
Drunk Tank- not so much a time
George St.- I'm havin' a time
Brenda- I'm havin' a time
Bingo- I'm havin' a time
House Arrest- I'm still havin' a time

I agree with you Andy. It's not fair to blame a guy who digs a ditch for 9 bucks an hour for the state of his party.

It's misdirected to blame a guy for voting against his own best interest?

My point was that Republicans always seem to blame non-existent enemies like socialists or people worse off than them instead of directing their anger at people who are actually in power. And it just hurts themselves and their bottom-rung compatriots.

I'm mad at them for their stupidity, but the lion's share of my hate is directed to the scumbags at the top.

There are enough people pandering to misinformed voters like Joe the Plumber as it is.  At some point someone needs to just come out and tell the man he's an idiot.

it depends on his motives.  in your simple world, the answer is probably yes.

sound like it:

just in case there is anyone who wants to be reasonable: the only reasonable answer I can see is that both sides are full of scumbags and you're really just picking the lesser of two evils. anyone championing either side is kidding themself.
