The Bratz Pack

Hi Kids!!! Didja miss me? It’s been a electronic nightmare ’round here. My computer got infected with something (I suspect some nefarious rethuglican plot) to the point where I couldn’t even play solitaire. The offspring had to go all nuclear on it–scrub it clean and start from scratch. Well, I can play solitaire again, and I loaded up Photoshop again (took 4 tries, and it’s a friggin’ mess–lost all my fonts and the old pics don’t work with whatever PS did to update the program). Anyway, I’m happy to be back, and I was thrilled to see that you guys hung around in my absence. I’ll try my best to answer the comments you left.

I didn’t have a chance to do lots of research on anything, so I went with a sure thing–what hasn’t changed is that the Rethugs are as rabid as ever.

Virginia So-Not-A Foxx

Everywhere I go in my district, people tell me they are frightened. They fear for the future of our country. What they’re talking about is, they fear for our freedoms. I share that fear, and I believe they should be fearful. And I believe the greatest fear that we all should have to our freedom comes from this room, this very room. And what may happen later this week, in terms of a tax increase bill masquerading as a health care bill. I believe we have more to fear from the potential of that bill passing than we do from any terrorist right now in any country.

Shelley Please-No Moore Capito on health care reform:

This is a jobs bill for Washington bureaucrats.

Michele Bathshit Bachmann (on why everyone should drop what they’re doing, drive to Washington, D.C., and visit their congresscritters in person:

We’re billing this as an emergency house call on Congress. We want to bring all of the town halls of August here to Washington, D.C. because in two months, they’ve forgotten the message that the American people sent loud and clear in August. […]

So now Nancy Pelosi is bringing the hammer down on all of her Blue Dogs. The thing is is not inevitable. If we get real, freedom-loving people from everywhere to Washington, D.C., and empower them to go and walk through all of these office buildings and knock on doors and ask to see their member, bring their video camera, get their member of Congress on videotape, ask them what they think, ‘Are they going to take away their freedom on health care?’ I think that we have the potential to scare these members with the sight of real people. […]

This is so important because this health care vote represents the crown jewel of socialism — socialized medicine is the crown jewel of socialism.

Ginny Doody Brown-Waite (on Barack Obama winning the Nobel Peace Prize):

With every great honor, however, comes great responsibility, not the least of which is the president’s constitutional responsibility to receive the consent of Congress before formally accepting this award.

Princess Sarah Palin:

Anything she’s ever said. You betcha!

    Welcome back!!!

  2. writechic

    You said, “Doody Brown.” Heh, heh, heh. 😉

  3. Friend of the court

    hay, nonnie!
    much sympathy about your lost pictures. I’m glad to see you back in circulation.

    • hi fotc!
      i’m salvaging the pics and reloaded all the fonts (thank goodness i saved them), but it’s still a mess. the biggest pain in the ass, however, is trying to readjust the font on all the web pages. i can’t get it back to normal, and it’s driving me crazy. i don’t remember how i set it before, and it annoys me every time i read something.

  4. Friend of the court

    it will come back to you. You might have Post Computer Crash Syndrome.

  5. jeb

    They tried to silence you Nonnie but the Man will never keep you down!

  6. Welcome back. And, yes, the GOoPer women are nuts.

  7. “With every great honor, however, comes great responsibility, not the least of which is the president’s constitutional responsibility to receive the consent of Congress before formally accepting this award.”

    Ummmm … I can’t seem to find that in my pocket copy of the Constitution. Must be one of those left-wing edited versions.

    Ahem … (I got it from the Heritage Foundation. I figured if they wanted to send something that cool for free, I’d take let them.)

    • they use the frank luntz version of the constitution. it’s a lot shorter, because it only has one amendment, the 2nd.

      • Well, the first is so darned inconvenient! To say nothing of the fourth, fifth, ninth, etc.. Only the second really matters.

        Maybe if Conservapedia (no, really! there is a Conservapedia) succeeds in rewriting the first the way they are the Bible, then we can use the first again.

        • it would be so much easier to replace the amendments (other than the 2nd) with the 10 commandments, with the caveat that most of them don’t apply to rethuglians (especially that whole coveting your neighbor’s wife thing).

          • 1) You shall have no other gods (except Reagan, of course!)

            2) Don’t worship idols … well, … except for the American flag, patriotic symbols, and anything else deemed convenient.

            3) Do not take the Lord’s name in vain … unless you’re using Him for political purposes. It is also okay to force other people to use His name in vain. [My ongoing issue … as a Christian, I’d rather have “under God” REMOVED from the pledge of allegiance.]

            4) Remember the Sabbath day and keep it clear for football or NASCAR.

            5) Honor your mother and father, which by no means implies any need to worry about their health care in their older years.

            6) Do not kill … you know, except for convicted criminals. This really has nothing to do with foreigners, though … don’t worry about them. Or those who disagree with you politically. Or poor people. Or federal employees.

            7) Do not commit adultery.

            Oh, who are we kidding? Go ahead, just make sure that you refer to King David when you get caught!

            8) Do not steal, call it a function of the free market and tell the victims that they’re just losers.

            9) Do not give false testimony unless you’re really losing politically and you need to get some points back.

            10) Do not covet. The best way to prevent covetousness is simply to take everything.

            • AAARRRRGGGHHH! That smiley-faced 8 got me again!

            • excellent!!!!!

              what makes me laugh is that every time they mention st. ronnie, they lose another young voter. i don’t understand how he got the deity status he enjoys. i still can’t figure out exactly what he did that was so wonderful. they can stick statues of him all over the place, but this is the age of the internets, and kids are not buying the whole st. ronnie myth.

              • I do have a soft spot for Reagan, but the idolization of him these days — and the outright lying about him — is crazy.

                Having said that, I do think he got off easy on Iran-Contra.

                • no soft spot here for st. ronnie. i never understood why anyone liked him. i though the whole avuncular persona was phony. and i especially couldn’t stand nancy. every time he called her mommy, i wanted to puke.

  8. Doesn’t it getting tiring for them to be afraid all the time?? 😉

  9. Glad to hear that things are back to normal in Nonnie-land! Now get to posting! lol
