Being Governed by Republicans is “Like Rooming with a Meth Addict”

Bill Maher nails the GOP. Again.

Imagine having a roommate who’s a meth addict. The rent is overdue, but your roommate, “instead of rent, is worrying that police have bugged the air conditioner.”

And so it is with the GOP. They got themselves elected by shrieking “Jobs!” — but now that they’re in power, all we’re getting is a bunch of “useless distractions that make up the Republican Party agenda.”

They haven’t created a single new job, but their biggest worries are “public unions, Sharia law, anchor babies, the Ground Zero mosque, NPR, and the war on Christmas.”

He also ridiculed the Republican obsession with ACORN: “Republicans are obsessed with people cooking up wild, nonexistent schemes to vote, ignoring one important truth: this is America. No one wants to vote. What's next, jury duty fraud?"

And about the GOP fixation on the New Black Panthers: “Every black person scares you.”

The real issues that Bill Maher wants politicians to worry about: “Climate change, loose nukes, debt, infrastructure, the wealth gap, our addiction to oil from weird, distant places run by monsters that want us dead, like Alaska.”

In other news: James O’Keefe — Chickenhawk.

As everyone knows, a chickenhawk is somebody who constantly clamors and screams for war, but doesn’t want to take part in the fighting him/herself.

James O’Keefe has achieved his “fame” — if you’ve even heard of him — by secretly videotaping people, editing the tapes and then publicizing them. Two days ago, James O’Keefe gave a speech to about a hundred fellow teabaggers. He insisted that nobody be allowed to film or record his speech.

Chickenhawk Bitch.

I'm with Bill Maher all the way, and James O'Keefe is a chickenSHIT.

the Rushpubliscums are hopelessly incompetent, appallingly ignorant, and worthless. I enjoy nothing these days as much as I enjoy excoriating them up close and in person.

Bill Maher is wickedly funny when he gets going. I didn't watch Larry King's show all that often in recent years, but did enjoy it when he had Maher on.

One of these days James O’Keefe is going to mess with the wrong person or finally wind up behind bars — where he ought to be now for trying to bug a senator's office phone. I eagerly await whatever results in him getting what he so richly deserves.

Hmm...I think O'Keefe needs some paparazzi style videotaping there. Like a network of out of work progressives follow him everywhere he goes. They can track him using facebook and cellphones. And never let one minute pass in public where he does not have a camera trained on him.

No, I think a meth addict is far more predictable.

Am I behind the times? I remember then a chicken hawk was a predator of young boys

Not really, Erik. Limbaugh (to name one example) fits both descriptions.

Jack: Agreed. Maher rocks and O'Keefe is a chickenshit.

JR: That's the best way to excoriate them -- up close and personal.

SW: I hope one or both of those things happen to O'Keefe, that he messes with the wrong person and/or ends up behind bars.

Bee: That would be poetic justice for O'Keefe. Having his every move videotaped and televised, like Jim Carey on The Truman Show.

Demeur: You're right; I'd go with the meth addict if the only other choice was a Republican.

Erik: I don't remember that. I first heard the term when they were talking about Dick "Five Deferments" Cheney and others like him.

JR: LOL, with Limbaugh we get a twofer.
