Which Came First?

Today is Thursday, 23 September 2010.

Republican Senator Tom Coburn of Oklahoma has become a two-timer, unfaithful to his original true love. To his previous passion for a social disease, hardcore homophobia, Tom has added a physical disease: salmonella.

(Sorry, Mrs. C, and watch out!)

Coburn is holding up a vote on funding for the Food and Drug Administration, claiming it’s not paid for by offsetting spending cuts elsewhere in the budget. This is the same Cobum who’s had no problem authorizing pissing away more than $3,000,000,000 dollars on the failing attempt to turn Iraq into an American colony, the $3 trillion not being paid for, and thus adding to the national debt.

This while tens of thousands of Americans are currently being poisoned by eggs laid by chickens raised in filth, and owned by an agro-industrialist who’s been treating taxpayers to disease for three decades, thanks to the Republican ideology of deregulation.

The Republican “Pledge to America”: you and/or your loved one(s) will suffer and die in great agony of food poisoning, but you won’t have died in vain – somewhere in this great land of ours, an unscrupulous **** will have made a buck off the suffering and death in great agony of you and/or your loved one(s).

Make you a nice cheese omelet, senator?

In a related Republican story: Snoot Gingrich is currently decrying Obama’s “anti-colonialism”. Snoot must be a bitterly-conflicted fellow internally. On the one hand, he converted to Roman Catholicism, which many of his reactionary brethren would argue makes him, politically, a subject of the pope. On the other hand, he believes that anti-colonialism is bad, making him logically a subject of the British queen.

How can one man serve two masters?

Obviously, Snoot should renounce his American citizenship, and make a choice.

Think this might catch on, as a nickname for Sarah Palin: Lady Gag-gag?

What's with the "Snoot" Gingrich stuff? Middle school kids call people funny names. You are already after him in another odd way - saying he is a political subject of the Pope? No - sorry. Remember that little thing known as "separation of church and state?" And why would his stance on "anti-colonialism" make him British? Again with the snarky, disjointed, non sequitur, non-liner verbiage. If you want people to read your stuff, don't make it a challenge to read.

Many right-wing "Christians" believe that Roman Catholicism is the "Great Whore of Babylon" of "prophecy", and that Catholics owe primary allegiance to the pope, not their country. If Newt criticizes Obama for being anti-colonial, then why should Newt not owe allegiance to the Mother Country, not the rabble of '76? It's hyperbole, sarcasm, and satire.

Oh. Sorry. Guess I am not well read enough to have grasped that.
