IT’S THE RETURN OF FUCK YOU FRIDAY
BE VERY VERY VERY AFRAID!!!
Especially those tightasses who think saying BAD FUCKING WORDS is unprofessional. Hey, I’m a fucking professional.
Up first. GO FUCK YOURSELF A BUNCH OF FUCKING GODDAM BIGOTED SCROTUM-TWISTING VOTER RESTRICTION ASSWIPES IN OHIO. Fucking jerkwad Republicans (but I repeat myself) in Ohio eliminated an early voting and expanded voting hours legislation, keeping them in white-flight suburbs. When the Ohio Supreme Court overturned the law, the Shitweasel Secretary of State said that he would NOT instruct the counties (especially the Democrat-leaning ones) to comply with the early voting, because he wanted to appeal the ruling. The Obama administration weighed in with a filing insisting that they enforce the law allowing early voting, and the judge involved demanded the S of S attend a hearing…in the fucking woodshed.
The tool backed down, and the early/expanded voting will go forward. VOTING RIGHTS expanded. I am sending out a thank you on a FYF (a rarity in itself) because SOMEBODY ought to.
We’ve all had bosses who fall in love with their own stupid ideas and won’t let them fucking go. So grow the FUCK UP, Obama, there is no such thing as the BOWLES-SIMPSON report. Your precious fucking commission was a failure. The driftglass-Charlie Pierce axis both remind you, not to mention the Great Fucking Krughtulhu.
Old people do not need to go back to eating cat food. Get the fuck over your failed idea that is dead as Dick Cheney and we all can move on.
Ah. I see a button here. Maybe I should push it (note that what follows is not a traditional FYF feature)…..
Wherever we eff at each other, thunderpants and I get into it; invariably he unleashes a laundry list of transgressions of Obama and the Democrats. And the inevitable link to Matt Stoller.
The la I am sure it seems as if I don’t have a rebuttal. The truth is, most times I don’t; most of the things he brings up are things that I oppose (although I find Matt Stoller to be a pretty crappy writer and lousy rhetorician; but everybody has the right to have their bias confirmed now and again).
But here’s the thing: There is not a SINGLE ONE of those areas where Rmoney, Lyin Ryan and the Republicans are not worse. In many cases, worse to the point of S.P.E.C.T.R.E. level, white cat stroking world-destructive evil. Obama has done things I oppose. He’s also done things that have helped people, including me. Things the the Republicans fought, and would never have done if they had had more power.
As Molly Ivins pointed out, over and over again, the tragedy of politics is that it actually does affect actual people. The thing about it is that the Republicans actually do not give a shit about actual people. The Democrats are admittedly nearly as compromised and corrupt, but still occasionally manage to relieve the horror of modern life for people under stress and terror, once in a while. Not always; but certainly at a greater rate than the opposition.
The ‘lesser of two evils’ is a trope and a cliche; but it is so because it is true, and always is. I loved ALMOST everything former Milwaukee Mayor Norquist did in Milwaukee; but not everything. And then he was forced to not seek re-election because he had an affair with a staffer. What a douche-canoe. It makes one cynical, it does.
But as mikey often points out, the election almost never offers ZRM or thunder as an option.
Finally, a very special FUCK YOU, YOU FUCKING FUCK goes out to our own Gov Turdwaffle (who else) you BIG FUCKING CRYBABY. Eagle Scout my fucking hairy ass.
Oh, and here’s a shorty. GO STUFF YOUSELF, ANN RMONEY, YOU WRINKLE-WITTED SKATHATCH. By what right do you think you get to decide what other women (and men) find to be important?
