Elizabeth Warren SHOULD NOT be on the Senate Banking Committee

Today we read that Professor Warren, despite her alleged status as one of the nation's top banking experts, may not be appointed to the Senate Banking Committee.

Thank goodness!

Professor Warren is a well-known agitator who only expertise is on the subject of how banks destroy economies and lives. She knows nothing of the manly business of making money. Sure, banks destroy economies and lives - but that's not their purpose. Their purpose is to make money, and any destruction that they leave in their wake is merely a necessary part of making a living. A really, really good living. Really enormous, bigger than you can possibly imagine. Huge. Ginormous.

And that's what government's here for, isn't it? So that bankers can make even more money, so eventually they'll make enough to create a job.

We need sensible Democrats on the Banking Committee, folks who know how the world really works. Not Krugman-firebagger types like Professor Warren. As Occupy-crushing NYC Mayor Bloomberg said, if Warren gets a lick of power, she'll "close the banks and get rid of corporate profits, and weíd all bring socialism back, or the U.S.S.R.Ē.

Well, we don't want the U.S.S. of R. here in the US, no sir. We'll keep our precious bodily fluids to ourselves.

I hope you'll join me in putting pressure on our elected representatives to keep Professor Warren away from anything important. Our precious bodily fluids are just too precious to put at risk.

Please join me in thanking Roberts, Scalia, Alito, Kennedy and especially Thomas

Citizens United might have seemed like a good idea those those scoundrels, but throwing money at Republicans is like giving crack to addicts. It simply amped up the crazy to Hunter Thompson levels.

Remember when we gnashed our teeth over how many senate seats we'd lose? Thanks to those magnificent nuts in SCOTUS, we're looking OK.

Great ring to it.

Adult supervision returns to DC.

Seamus laughs last

His triumphant bark echoes through every burg.

Finally, heís freed from the roof-prison of his mind, from the dread that 47% of Americans would be joining him in a feces-ridden four-year festival of terror.

Tonight, we are all Seamus. Tonight we all join together, Democrats and Republicans together, in a single profound hope: that after 18 years of littering our lives, that schmuck will vanish.

Romney's concession delayed

The Chinese firm he outsourced it to is having labor problems. Tagg's on the way to kick their asses, but it may take a while.

Everyone remain calm, we'll get through this.

Peace to everyone.

Warren, Grayson... we got the start of something

FDR Democrats who'll fight for working Americans.

Let's hope the spark ignites.

Christie put the blade through Romney's heart. Was it

political murder, or a mercy killing?

I'm thinking the latter. You?

DO NOT dismiss Republican claims that they're way ahead

Remember this interview with Karl Rove from Nov 2006?

SIEGEL: Weíre in the home stretch, though, and many would consider you on the optimistic end of realism about -
ROVE: Not that you would be exhibiting a bias Ö
SIEGEL: Iím looking at all the same polls that youíre looking at every day.
ROVE: No, youíre not. No, youíre not.
SIEGEL: No, Iím not.
ROVE: No, youíre not. Youíre not. Iím looking at 68 polls a week. You may be looking at four or five public polls a week that talk about attitudes nationally but that do not impact the outcome of -
SIEGEL: Iím looking at main races between Ė certainly Senate races.
ROVE: Well, like the poll today showing that Corkerís ahead in Tennessee, or the poll showing that Allen is pulling away in the Virginia Senate race.
SIEGEL: Leading Webb in Virginia, yeah.
Mr. ROVE: Exactly.
SIEGEL: But youíve seen the DeWine race and the Santorum race Ė I donít want to have you call races.
ROVE: Yeah, Iím looking at all these, Robert, and adding them up, and I add up to a Republican Senate and Republican House. You may end up with a different math, but youíre entitled to your math, Iím entitled to THE math.
SIEGEL: Well, I donít know if weíre entitled to our different math, but youíre certainly -
ROVE: I said THE math. I said youíre entitled to yours.

Just like Rove predicted, Republicans went on to win both houses of Congress in that election, if by "win" you mean what the dictionary defines as "lose".

Damned Liberals and their so-called "word definitions".
