I happened to turn on C-span yesterday and much to my displeasure it was a republican bloggers conference. I quickly held my nose and dawned my moon suit and respirator and watched for about ten minutes. Luckily it was at the very end or my TV would have had a shoe thrown through its screen. The very end and the gist of this meeting was that the republicans realize that they have no power left in this country so their stratigy will be to be nothing more than a road block to any legislation, no new ideas or bipartisanship from their side of the isle. Now if these guys worked for any private company in the U.S. it wouldn't be long before they'd be out on their ass and they wouldn't be collecting unemployment either. Remember if you're fired for just cause no check for you. I can think of two good examples that come to mind with these guys. The first is my cat in the morning. I no sooner wake up and head for the bathroom and that cat must go from wherever she is in the house directly to an underfoot position. We could sign her up as a tackle for the Seattle Sea Hawks and she would do quite well. The second example is that braty kid at the supermarket checkout. With tears and snot running down his face he's screeching at his mother as loud as he can "Mommy I want more tax cuts!!" And you know mom won't have peace until jr. gets something from the tax cut candy rack.
And that brings me to the last bit. of one Ronald Raygoon the Jesus Christ of the republican party who once said "the problem IS government. We need to shrink it down small enough that we can drown it in a bathtub." Only problem there is that the bathtub was forclosed on and there wasn't enough taxes to pay the water bill.
