Since Congress Has No Spine, YOU Have To Prop Them Up

Like most Americans, you’re probably disgusted, sick with fury — to the point of wanting to just shake and slap some sense into these useless buttwipes —at our invertebrate Congress for being, well, invertebrates. Jellyfish! These douchebags work for us! Are we paying them a 6-figure salary — out of OUR tax dollars — to collapse like a house of cards whenever George Johnny Walker Bush glares at them?? Fuck No!!!

We The People elected these Democrats to Congress last November with the understanding that they would get us out of Iraqmire and start draining the swamp — start cleaning up the most corrupt festering shitstained putrid administration in our country’s history.

But NOOO!!!!!

When the Bourbon King said “y’all can't go on vacation ‘til you bend over for me,” well, let’s just say that loud rumbling and crashing you heard was the sound of several hundred Congresspersons falling to the floor in some very, uh, obscene positions. There's nothing more pitiful than hearing your “representatives” pleading in unison “Do me, Mr. President!!”

Your tax dollars at work.

But the good news is, it’s NOT too late. We CAN still undo the damage caused by these cheap sleazy disease-carrying hookers who are pretending they work for us. They do!!!

And here is your chance to remind them. Click here to tell these spineless boneless ball-less pusbags to either: A) Stand up to the school bully, who can't fight his way out of a paper bag anyway; or B) tuck their tails between their legs and walk away from the highly paid highly skilled jobs that they're NOT qualified for.

We The People need to be Represented. NOW!!

Tom, great rant! I can't believe how spineless they've turned out to be. We gave them a fucking JOB to do last November. What is our alternative? I dunno. Yes, I'll send an email. And I'll keep on sending them. And writing and calling. That's all I know to do. What's it going to take?

They are spineless, on the take, and beholden to Corporate America, which runs/ruins this country.

Candace: Thanks. You're right, we gave them a job and they haven't done it. Not even close. Thanks for sending the e-mail.

Larry: Yup, spineless and on the take. And that's a terrible combination.

EXCELLENT RANT!!!! I am APPLAUDING LOUDLY!!! The way you went off I would swear we were seperated at birth! LOL.................
Really excellent post. These spineless BASTARDS need to be reminded of WHO they work for, and WHO put them in the positions they are in! We put them in office to clean up the mess not bend over to make MORE of a damn mess. To answer Candace I think it's gonna take either a march on Washington or a bullet to Shrubs head, to stop the madness!!

Funkytown Fighter: Thanks. Yeah, we've gotta keep after those spineless bastards and remind them that we sent them to Washington to do a job, and they need to quit fucking around and do it.

I'm really thinking that our only hope is to form a viable third party.

I'm tossing around the idea of calling it the Average Citizens Coalition (ACC).

It's time The People finally got some representation in Congress. Right now corporate interests are pretty much all that's being supported.

It's frustrating but currently what's the alternative? Voting Republican? No way in hell I would do that. So I guess we have to hold our nose when Dems do shit like this and keep putting pressure on them.

I know why they did it...God forbid another terror attack happen and Bush not get his super powers....The Repugs and Bush would have a field day trying to pin the attacks on Dems for not giving Bush Super Powers...that's why they voted for it.

Hell, the cynic in me thinks BushCo may have even orchestrated a terror attack if Congress didn't bow to his will and that members of Congress knew this.

How is it that Trent Lott's telling Congress not to come back until after 9/11 and a whisper campaign started in DC of rumors of an attack just as the debate was going on over Bush's spy powers?

Everyone remember back when the Patriot Act was being forced through Congress? Two Democrats could have blocked the bill, Patric Leahy and Tom Daschle...Bot got Anthrax letters..

Coincidence? Fuck No.

I think there is some very scarey shit going on behind the scenes. Does it excuse the yellow bellied spineless dems that voted to give Bush super powers? No.

They should come clean with the American People about exactly what the fuck is going on.

PoliShifter: Yeah, a third party might be the only way. Both parties have certain constituencies that they take for granted, and the only people they actually care about are the ones who make huge campaign contributions.

You have a point -- I wouldn't put it past Bush or Cheney to stage a terrorist attack to retaliate against the Democrats if they didn't authorize that spying bill. There's definitely some scary shit going on behind the scenes. Even the "alternative" news sites are probably just scratching the surface.

Excellent rant. You are absolutely fuckin' right!!!

(I signed the petition, and sent Pelosi & Reid a special message.)

I like Poli's idea, too.

A third party would help a lot, but Corporate America would never allow it.

Lizzy: Thanks. Yup, a third party might be what it takes. But will that ever happen?

Kip152: I'm afraid Corporate America would either not allow a third party to succeed, or they'd contribute so many bribes and "campaign contributions" that this third party would be just as controlled and owned as the other 2 parties.

Good points all and I share your fury at the spineless, DINO Dems who kowtow to Bush and Cheney, and allow themselves to be defined by Karl Rove.

The worst is Nancy "impeachment is off the table" Pelosi.

Hahahahahahaha! That's rich. Are there really people who still believe elections mean anything? Lobby, baby!

Christopher: That's true, the only way Rove can keep defining the Democrats and painting them into a corner is if they keep allowing it. Maybe they enjoy it.

Romunov: Yup, I guess the only way to get representation is to become a multi-millionaire and purchase your own congressman. Like the old saying goes, "if voting did any good they wouldn't allow it."

Excellent post!

We need to send a clear message to Congress:

Either work for us or get out!

Suzie-Q(S-Q): Thanks. That's exactly what we need to tell them.
