Why Senator Mike Johanns Needs to be Repeatedly Cock-Punched

Sorry to be stealing one of The Rude Pundit’s favorite phrases.

But this asshole from Nebraska is too contemptible for words. The Senate finally broke a Republican filibuster (one of dozens) and has agreed to consider legislation providing tax credits for small businesses. The bill would also provide a $30 billion fund for loans to small businesses.

The two Republican “traitors” who broke the filibuster — George Voinovich and George Lemieux — are both retiring, so rightwing powerbrokers won’t be able to retaliate against them.

Anyway, Senator Marie Antoinette
Mike Johanns (R—Douchebag) said:

“Small businesses need another loan like they need a kick in the pants.”

Any small business owners still planning to vote Republican this November?

There shouldn't be any, Tom, but prepare to be amazed and appalled at how many will do it anyway.

He's right, big business needs those loans. Who do you think creates jobs, you fucking hippies?

They will vote for him, even though he is saying this, and that is what makes the baby Jesus cry Glenn Beck tears. I'll bet you didn't know that did you.

This is really amazing considering it was the Republicans who twisted the small business laws to favor their corporate friends. Allowing a one man lawyer (self incorporated), or a CEO who sets up an business to rent his summer home, to be small business. They also amended the laws to allow franchisees of big business like McDonalds and Burger Kings (even though most of them are owned by big conglomerates) to be classified as small business and therefore receive the bulk of tax dollars

I might take that quote myself.

Getting the message out is what tangles your short hairs.

That one is mine..;)

J: I can't believe he said that even privately, let alone publicly.

SW: I'm prepared.

Randal: But only if these businesses are really really big.

Demeur: I've wondered that about all of these Republican politicians who make clueless statements. Coburn, Bunning, McConnell, Boehner...

Jess: That's the scary part. No matter how clueless and callus the GOP is, and how blatant they are, their polls just keep going up and up and up.

Erik: I forgot about that, all those new definitions where a law office or a franchise is a "small business."

Tim: The Rude Pundit uses that expression a lot; he's got jillions of others just as colorful.

Bee: Appallment -- what millions of liberals and centrists will be feeling on November 3rd.
