We're going to get a dog like that and name it Payback.

That way, if anyone asks is it a girl or a boy, we can say, "Well, we named it Payback...."

Thanks to Irene ("Hey look! Some crafty Tea Partier stole Bo") and Meade ("Irene, I'm sorry I failed to get the name of the beautiful dog in that photo so I'm just going to call her 'Payback'...").

Fairly mild payback, doesn't bite, I hope.

Is Payback a bitch?

Meade said...

"Fairly mild payback, doesn't bite, I hope."

*Grrr... RARRARARRR!!!*

Kirby Olson: Youch!!! I thought you said fairly mild Payback didn't bite!!!

Me: What I said was : Fairly mild Payback is not my bitch!

Lem said...

You lost. It's supposed to taste like a shit sandwich. Been there many times. I bet most people can't even remember when they lost to a Democrat on any bold initiative.

"If we take the widest and wisest view of a Cause, there is no such thing as a Lost Cause, because there is no such thing as a Gained Cause. We fight for lost causes because we know that our defeat and dismay may be the preface to our successors' victory, though that victory itself will be temporary; we fight rather to keep something alive than in the expectation that it will triumph."

- T.S. Eliot

If only! I live in New Jersey, the state right behind California and New York in the race for "First Bankrupt State".

You guys are all supposed to be happy now!

The Democrats shot themselves in the foot right?

The Republicans are going to win both Houses in a landslide and repeal HCR.

Obama is going to be a one-term president.

If the Democrats had known what was good for them, they wouldn't have done this.

David said...

Bo? Has anyone seen Bo lately? Do the Obama's still have Bo? If so, is the Secret Service doing the walking and the poop scooping?

Bo was a prop. Poor Bo.

look at all those evil racists in that photo. They must have spit on Barney Frank.

I kid...

Yes, the democraps knew if this bill lost the bamster's presidency went down the tubes. So they did all they could to avert "a Jimmy Carter moment." They did this by letting Stupak go out there and make believe all of America wanted to see Roe folded back. The whole thing was a ruse. In political gamesmanship those with the most to lose just did so. The presidency's been save. And, Roe's legality hasn't really been questioned. Past all the money raised during the 1980's; and the cases at the Supreme's expanded Roe, rather than shrunk it.

Back in 1972? You had 6 weeks. After Sandra Day O'Connor molded the next case up there, this length of time exceeded 4 months! And, still the right just salivates over this topic.

That's why the bamster won. The rest, as they say, is merely left to push back. The conservatives, when they look around, won't see the center of the court. Why did Stupak even matter?

Irene said...

Bo was a prop. Poor Bo.

At least Bo seems to be faring better than Buddy did.

Chip Ahoy said...

Is the joke that you couldn't stop the legislation like you wanted so you stole the presidents dog?

If so, then hahahahahaha, good one.

Fred4Pres said...

I bet it eats a lot and then you get dog turds.

MadisonMan said...

Note that if you get a dog, home-delivery of a newspaper is required, because those plastic bags are just the right size.

I felt the same exact way for 8 long years. Deal. And if you're so concerned with jobs, and taxes, etc, you should be applauding the fact job losses went from -700k a year ago to at least breaking even now, and the average tax refunds are up 10% from a year ago. Bet you didn't even know you received a tax cut last year, did you.

"Your Excellency," said the First Lady's aide sheepishly as she dropped onto one knee on the chilly hardwood floor before the chartreuse-and- turquoise floral-print-clad figure of Michelle Obama.

The First Lady snapped her head around and glared at the kneeling woman. "Yes? Why are you disturbing me, you pathetic runt?" she snarled.

"The people from the woman's magazine are here to photograph you and the Princesses for the cover story"

Michelle Obama further narrowed her narrowed eyes. "I see. I had intended to cancel this session but Barack reminded me that the fat idiotic women of America respond well to such propaganda."

"I think His Excellency is correct" said the aide meekly.

"Of course He's correct!" the First Lady snapped. "Are you implying that He is sometimes incorrect?!"

The blood drained from the kneeling aide's face. "No! No! I would never imply such a thing, your Excellency!"

Michelle glared at the aide. "And are the children arrived?"

"Sash... I mean, the Princesses are being brought over from the dormitory as we speak."

"Good. Send in my Beauty Enhancement Entourage. Oh and have the proper staff bring the beast from storage. I suppose we have to have that thing in the photographs. But remind the staff that the beast is not to approach or touch me at any time, and that it must be promptly returned to storage the moment the photographers leave. And notify the Imperial Hygiene Staff that they will be needed to promptly disinfect any surfaces that the beast contacts. Including the children."

"Yes, your Excellency," said the aide.

"Now, leave my presence immediately!" Michelle Obama shrieked. The aide quickly backed out of the room as the First Lady adjusted her 12-inch-wide zebra-embossed leatherette belt and awaited the 20 members of the Beauty Enhancement Entourage and their Cinching Machine and polishers.

Wow! I'm going to get a tiny bit of my own money back! Cool!

garage mahal said...

Yes, a Democrat gave you a tax break you didn't have from an outgoing Republican. Revolt!

Here it is in a nutshell, folks. For a lot of people, this whole fucking thing is about revenge.

Few on the left have demonstrated any understanding whatsoever of the negative consequences of this bill. They seem to be swallowing a lot from their politicians. Weird people to put your trust and future in.

They take the same approach to this healthcare thing as they do AGW. Unquestioning belief. Wasn't that another Obama slogan? "Believe"? Barf.

garage mahal said...

No, the point being is that I know the feeling - I've tasted the shit sandwich. I didn't have a NERVOUS BREAKDOWN over it however. No calls for revolution or spilled blood. For instance, the Bush tax cuts. People knew he would do it, and who it would likely benefit. Bush campaigned on it. The reaction to HCR just seems completely unbalanced. How many "fiscally concerned citizens" protesting in D.C. knew they received a tax cut last year? I bet maybe a handful.

You can always teach it to sniff out a Lefty and go for its throat. Then you call it God, and tell them, "God will get you".

Maybe we're mad because we love this country.

Chip Ahoy said...

Love this country. Do you mean as it is now or how it can adapt and be improved incrementally? Nonsense! We love it for how it can be wrenched into something entirely different. NOW!

Penny said...

It makes you wonder why people didn't scream louder when Medicare and Medicaid and Unemployment Insurance were first implemented?

Or maybe they did scream, right before they went back to working hard at raising their families.

Penny said...

If we are honest with ourselves, Americans have a track record of adjusting quite nicely to government programs that are put in place for the old, the poor, the sick and the out of work.

Peter V. Bella said...

Garage a tax refund is not a tax cut. It is a government loan with no interest. A tax cut is when they take less out of your check and you get to keep more of your money.

For example, Billybobfestus raised taxes on workers- the with holding tax. Less money each pay check.

Bush lowered it. More money in the pocket.

Obama will raise it again, when the Bush tax cuts expire. Less money in the pocket.

Why should I loan the government money interest free each year?

How many years have you really worked for a living?

knox said...

Perfect.

knox said...

Yeah ... that's why you feel the need to come here and say "You Lose"... because you're sympathetic. Sorry, I totally misinterpreted your big-heartedness.

David said...

ALPHA STUPIDITY AT NEW HIGH!

and the average tax refunds are up 10% from a year ago. Bet you didn't even know you received a tax cut last year, did you.

Jesus F. Christ, Alpha. If your income is down and you pay estimates based on the prior year (the only easy way to avoid underpayment penalties), your refund will go up.

Taxes are down because the incomes are down. Take a look at state and federal income tax receipts, you moron.

raf said...

Garage, are you sure about that no nervous breakdown thing? I seem to remember a lot of anti-Bush sentiment coming from you, and I don't think the current comments are anywhere near as ad hominum. Of course, I could be wrong and you could have been very issue-oriented all this time, but ....
