By Frank Byronn Glenn -- John Boehner gets ready to bring his "Plan B" to the House floor for a vote -- and to make sure he gets it passed -
- he loads it up with things that give the tea-party, Grover Norquist types wet dreams when they think about it -- and he still can't get it passed. He gives them cuts to social safety net items that they clamor government is giving to "mooches" -- and include a tax increase that is less than will occur January 1, 2013 -- if they do nothing -- and these "bloviating ignoramuses" can't see the forest for the trees -- and tell Boehner in advance that they will not support it.
We have seen them come down against ideas that were mainstream Republican policy from Eisenhower, to Nixon, to Reagan, to both
Bushes and Bob Dole -- the American Heritage Institute. We have seen them vote against bills that they or there caucus recently sponsored because now Obama supports them. But now -- absurdity of absurdities -- they can't even vote for a bill that has everything in it that they were rabid about a week ago. These guys are -- for lack of a more descriptive phrase -- very nearly certifiably, clinically insane. Either that or they or bloviating ignoramuses and con men and women playing a preposterous game of political charades.
May we clear the field of these bull-shit artist fools in the 2014 elections. It's time they went back to live under the rocks they crawled out from under when they got there money from the deranged billionaires. Or as another group once said so eloquently some years ago: "Off With Their Heads!"

By Johnny Tremaine -- I couldn't believe John McCain said Susan Rice was "Not Very Bright". This -- the guy who picked Sarah Palin as his failed Vice-Presidential running mate -
- thus, revealing to all of us what until then we only deeply suspected -- that he was a political "fool, faker, and beer label breaker" with nary a brain in his head nor a responsible bone in his body. They called him a "hero" because he was a terrible pilot and got shot down over Vietnam -- then tried to sell out his country to save his own skin (and failed) -- so had to spend a few years as a prisoner of war in Vietnam. They say he was such a bad pilot, specifically, and a bad serviceman in general that they were considering grounding him before he ejected into hostile arms. I seem to remember he once crashed on an aircraft carrier and caused a fire that blew up a few other planes -- not positive on that one -- but it's too bad he isn't still a prisoner of war. At least then he could probably remember the one cage he had -- for a house. What a disgrace to the Senate and the United States this unworthy bastidge is!

By Bifford Caulfield -- It's official now. Republicans do not believe in Democracy. The have bet their political lives on the fact that
they can team up with billionaire fascists, fellow Republican money-slaves to the rich -- with an enabling and cheerleading fascist and morally bankrupt Supreme Court. Boy will they be shocked when the fascists no longer need them after the "take-over" is complete -- and they are the first ones the death squads purge and "neutralize".
There is nothing democratic about these lying, cheating, stealing, vote-supressing, union-busting bastards who can't get enough of their "Koch-Sucking" delights. "Off with their heads!"
