PhotOH! The GOP to-do list


Above is the Republican to-do list (provided by someone with a photo editing program and an understanding of today's political climate). Sure brings out the ol' holiday spirit, doesn't it? Do you feel the warmth yet?

Are you inspired when you think of a vanishing middle class, no help for those at and below the poverty level, the sick and elderly losing what's left of their health, welfare, and dignity? And how about those civil rights? Hey, are you from another country? Then you're icky! (Unless you'll do our dirty work for nearly nothing) Need an education? Just ask the folks to fork over all that cash they don't have! Wanna vote? Too bad! Not a white male? Go sit over there... way over there.

Are you feeling the love yet? The family values? How about that "pro-life" compassion for those who are already, you know, living? Hmm?

Here's the Democratic to-do list. Compare and contrast:

  1. Win the presidential election. ✔
  2. Retain Senate majority. ✔
  3. Add seats to House of Representatives. ✔
  4. And this stuff. ✔



How have we EVER managed to survive President Obama's evil presidency?


According to the whackadoodledoos, Barack Hussein Obama:

Whew! And that's just for starters. Wowee zowee, what a terrible, horrible, no-good guy President Obama is! Good grief! How have we ever managed to survive?


10 Things Conservatives Don’t Want You To Know About Ronald Reagan


Think Progress has all the yummy details of this irresistible list of 10 things conservatives would consider cringe-worthy about their American Idol.

Read 'em and weep, GOP. St. Ronnie was no conservative saint:

1. Reagan was a serial tax raiser.

2. Reagan nearly tripled the federal budget deficit.

3. Unemployment soared after Reagan’s 1981 tax cuts, and income inequality exploded.

4. Reagan grew the size of the federal government tremendously.

5. Reagan did little to fight a woman’s right to chose.

6. Reagan was a “bellicose peacenik.” He wrote in his memoirs that “[m]y dream…became a world free of nuclear weapons.

7. Reagan gave amnesty to 3 million undocumented immigrants.

8. Reagan illegally funneled weapons to Iran.

9. Reagan vetoed a comprehensive anti-Apartheid act.

10. Reagan helped create the Taliban and Osama Bin Laden.

Mmm, mmm good!

In denial much, Republicans?

Please hop over to the entire Think Progress piece. It's a must-read.
