Health Care Leaves the GOP Feeling Sick

From The New York Times:

WASHINGTON — The seven-year Republican quest to undo the Affordable Care Act appeared to reach a dead end on Tuesday in the Senate, leaving President Trump vowing to let President Barack Obama’s signature domestic achievement collapse.

Hello Dollies!

Since it’s the holiday season, I’m thinking about toys, specifically dolls. We’ve seen a few of them in the last few posts, but I thought I’d find some others we might have forgotten about and brush the dust off them. There are all different kinds of dolls. For example, there are the ones that talk…and talk…and talk…

The Pledge of a Grievance

From CQ POLITICS:

STERLING, Va. — House Republicans on Thursday officially unveiled what they hope will be a majority-making agenda at a Virginia hardware store warehouse.

The agenda, “A Pledge to America,” calls for a series of reforms, including cutting the size of the federal government, to try to put the country back on a path to prosperity. The agenda, months in the making, only lightly touches on divisive social issues.

Bob McDonnell: No Slave to History

From PostPartisan at The Washington Post:

So it turns out that slavery did cause the Civil War. So says Bob McDonnell, Republican governor of Virginia — a student of the Better Late Than Never School of Political Damage Control.

On Tuesday the governor issued a proclamation that declared April as Confederate History Month, noted that “all Virginians” honored the Confederacy’s sacrifice and, amazingly, included no mention of slavery or slaves. Never mind that nearly half a million black slaves lived in Virginia at the time, or that large numbers of Virginians (especially non-slave owners) opposed secession.

Governor xKen Dollx McDonnell has also proclaimed that new currency will be used to commemorate Confederate History Month.

That’s Governor xKen Dollx McDonnell on the left and his wife, Maureen xStepfordx McDonnell on the right. As you can see from the picture on the bill, there was none of the “bad” slavery in Virginia, and that’s why the governor forgot to mention it. Look closely, and you’ll see that those aren’t hoes the slaves are holding. They’re golf clubs, and the slaves were having a helluva good time! If not for Virginia slavery, we wouldn’t have Tiger Woods today.

Look at the other cool bill that will be in circulation:

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.

Happy Birthday, Barbie: 4th and Final(?) Edition

Well, kids, in parts 1, 2, and 3, we’ve covered wannabes and motherhood, a few first ladies, and Rethuglican women in the Senate. Since we’ve paid homage to those in the Senate, I would be remiss to ignore the Ladies of the House. Let’s start with my fave, Michele Bachmann. From The Minnesota Independent:

U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann’s ranting has the blog world buzzing yet again this week. Late last week, in an appearance with KTLK’s Chris Baker, the Minnesota Republican said, “We’re running out of rich people in this country.” She said she thinks Obama will lower the “rich” threshold to couples making $65,000 a year.

Oh, Michele, you are indeed a Barbie doll!

Rethuglican Girls Gone Wild!

From the Orlando Sentinel:

Two Florida women on the “Palin Truth Squad” set up by the John McCain campaign have added their voices to the McCain-inspired controversy over Barack Obama’s “lipstick on a pig” comments. You’ll recall that the insult — a longtime Southernism — was addressed at McCain. Efforts to depict the four-term senator as an agent of change are, Obama said, “like putting lipstick on a pig.”

It didn’t take long for former Massachusetts Gov. Jane Swift to accuse him of a “gender-based” remark that must have been directed at Sarah Palin — she being the only person in the campaign, Swift helpfully explained, who wears lipstick.

Yes, kids, a Palin Truth Squad. The woman who is supposedly ready to be President needs bridesmaids an entire squad to watch over her and make sure nobody insults Captain Underpants’s little Princess Sarah. Don’t tell anyone, but I got a photo of one of the squad’s secret meetings!
