Scratchpad: Sat. 22 Sept. 2007

Romney wants Republicans to act like Reagan Republicans again.
IOW-- like gasholes!

"...and like FDR Republicans...!"

How the hell can that game show host wannabe mention FDR & the late ungreat Ronald Reagan in the same breath...? More

From the ‘Last Will & Testicles’ files

“Codeine ! Bourbon!” -- Tallulah Bankhead (last words).

My last words will probably be something like: “Fock you, World! See you in the funny papers, suckers…!” (It’s so me…)

Or else if I‘m feeling beatific: “Peace Love and Joy to all of you. Farewell. I’m ready now, God…” ( Just in case Richard Dawkins is wrong…)

Bush: Kids' health care will get vetoed

Bush again called Democrats "irresponsible" on Saturday for pushing an expansion he opposes to a children's health insurance program.

"Democrats in Congress have decided to pass a bill they know will be vetoed," Bush said of the measure that draws significant bipartisan support, repeating in his weekly radio address an accusation he made earlier in the week. "Members of Congress are risking health coverage for poor children purely to make a political point."

In the Democrat's response, also broadcast Saturday, Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell turned the tables on the president, saying that if Bush doesn't sign the bill, 15 states will have no funding left for the program by the end of the month.

At issue is the Children's Health Insurance Program, a state-federal program that subsidizes health coverage for low-income people, mostly children, in families that earn too much to qualify for Medicaid, but not enough to afford private coverage. It expires Sept. 30.

A bipartisan group of lawmakers announced a proposal Friday that would add $35 billion over five years to the program, adding 4 million people to the 6.6 million already participating. It would be financed by raising the federal cigarette tax by 61 cents to $1 per pack.

The idea is overwhelmingly supported by Congress' majority Democrats, who scheduled it for a vote Tuesday in the House. It has substantial Republican support as well.

But Bush has promised a veto, saying the measure is too costly, unacceptably raises taxes, extends government-covered insurance to children in families who can afford private coverage, and smacks of a move toward completely federalized health care. More

COMMENT: Yeah. That dreaded federalized healthcare. Better dead and sick children than that. Anything but that...!

Attention! George Knucklehead Bush is truly a sick sack of shit. What more can you say about such a creature…?

War Is Patriotic…& Highly Lucrative…!

The big strong Bushbuttsucking Repooplicker Crazy Cowboy Shoot-Anything-That-Moves Daddy-Staters are protecting the troops by keeping them in harm’s way on compulsory quadruple-overtime.

The namby-pamby DemoRATs and their limpwristed fruitcake antiwar allies are against the troops because they want to bring them home.

“Yeah but if the troops come home the Islamist freaks will come to East Jesus and crap all over our fat-burgers and cornpone…!”

O then well forgive me. Keep the troops in Iraq until the oil-extraction contracts are signed by ExxonMobil, Halliburton, etc. : MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

(Or until the ranks mutiny…Whichever comes first…)
