The Grincheney Revisited

Hey kids! I was too damned lazy xI couldn’t think of a damned thing to photoshopxxI thought we’d start a new Raisin tradition! As we’ve all seen, Deadeye Dick Cheney hasn’t changed much in the last year, so I thought we could have another Grincheney sing-along, just like last year. Pour yourself a nice cup of hot cocoa or some left-over eggnog, put on those new fuzzy socks you found under the Christmas tree, and snuggle up! Let’s sing!

The Raisin sits on Santa’s lap,

While wishing that your holidays,
Are as happy as can be.

Where Thinking Goes to Tank

From THE HUFFINGTON POST:

The George W. Bush Institute — the “action- oriented think tank” that is part of Bush’s Presidential Center — will co-produce a public television show hosted by its executive director, Ambassador James Glassman, in a rare convergence of public broadcasting and a partisan research organization.

“Ideas in Action” will premiere in February and will be co-produced by Andrew Walworth, who produces PBS’s “Think Tank.”

Because we all know how Chimpy always surrounds himself with geniuses.

Batshit Bachmann Has a Farm, E-I-E-I-Uh-Oh!

From Yasha Levine at truthdig:

Michele Bachmann has become well known for her anti-government tea-bagger antics, protesting health care reform and every other government “handout” as socialism. What her followers probably don’t know is that Rep. Bachmann is, to use that anti-government slur, something of a welfare queen. That’s right, the anti-government insurrectionist has taken more than a quarter-million dollars in government handouts thanks to corrupt farming subsidies she has been collecting for at least a decade.

And she’s not the only one who has been padding her bank account with taxpayer money.

He’s Dreaming of a Bronze Christmas

From npr:

We know some of you have been worrying about that new bo-tax even if your face can no longer move to express it. But now you can relax: the cosmetic surgery tax is out, but the tanning tax has replaced it. All indoor tanning services will be subject to a ten percent tax should the Senate Democrats’ health bill prevail.

The lobbying effort by those not-so-happy cosmetic surgeons has apparently paid off, and is leaving the tanning salon industry feeling a little singed.

The President of the Indoor Tanning Association […] said in a report Saturday that the move was ironic as tanning has at least some proven health benefit.The amendment seems to have accounted for this, though, and wouldnt tax phototherapy issued by a medical professional, just tanning services purchased by individuals. Its estimated to raise $2.7 billion in that first ten year period.

…snip…

But the health debate’s not over yet. The Senate bill still has to be married with the House bill. The tanning provision might even provide Minority Leader John Boehner, known for his year-round glow and his opposition to new taxes, with some new talking points.

To the tune of O Tannenbaum (O Christmas Tree):

If you’re hoping anyone thinks you have class, you haven’t got a prayer

From Dana Milbank at The Washington Post:

Going into Monday morning’s crucial Senate vote on health-care legislation, Republican chances for defeating the bill had come down to a last, macabre hope. They needed one Democratic senator to die — or at least become incapacitated.

At 4 p.m. Sunday afternoon — nine hours before the 1 a.m. vote that would effectively clinch the legislation’s passage — Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) went to the Senate floor to propose a prayer. “What the American people ought to pray is that somebody can’t make the vote tonight,” he said. “That’s what they ought to pray.”

Now if he can only figure out how to wrap it…
