Sometimes I get so frustrated and/or disheartened and/or annoyed by some of the news stories of the day that I can’t bring myself to write about them. Here are a few recent reports that made my blood pressure hit the roof. I am avoiding delving into them at length out of concern for my physical and mental health.
- Powerful Texas Republican Advocates For Seceding From The United States-- Seriously? We're not past this yet? This time it's a great legal mind and Texas Railroad Commissioner named Barry Smitherman, who-- wait for it-- is running to be the next state Attorney General. Good luck with that, Skippy.
- Top Iowa Republican Poised To Begin New Voter Purge-- Oh those GOP scamps and their voter outreach. What will they think of next?
- Watchdog Finds Zero Major Overpayments In Food Stamps, $17 Million In Farm Programs-- Isn't that just like the GOP? They thrive on the hypocrisy of preventing people from voting and eating while simultaneously vowing to reinvent their failing party.
- Pennsylvania Taxpayers To Pay Private Law Firm $400 An Hour To Defend Anti-Gay Law-- Leave it to the Tom Corbett administration to add to the theme of this post: GOP outreach my ass.
See what I mean? So who’s up for a couple of Margs or a trough of wine?
