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.
