Bernie Sanders, a massive sellout!

by Paulie200

Thanks to recent diaries here at DKos we have been warned to watch out for politicians that fly a progressive flag, but are secret enemies of the Progressive Party.  And almost every one of these enemies of the Progressive Party that have been rightfully exposed here at DKos are Democrats!  Yes that's right, and as one Rec-List diary pointed out recently, even Sen. Al Franken is highly suspect.

And now, a revelation that is going to blow. your. mind.  The enemies of the Progressive Party are not ALL Democrats... the one person we once thought of as THE single most progressive member of the Senate, and the very embodiment of the Progressive Party, Senator Bernie Sanders... has SOLD US OUT!

True Facts and other Progressive Party Truthiness below the squiggle.

It’s 3 AM September 11, 2013, and the phone rings in the White House.  On the phone is the duty officer at our embassy in Tajikistan saying an unruly mob,  angered by yet another obscure, childish, and intentionally inflammatory anti-Islam film, has gathered outside the embassy walls and is threatening to scale them and tear down the U.S. flag in protest.  Not just that, the duty officer relates, “but they are in the process of spraying graffiti all over the embassy compound walls.”

Three quotes below from what is usually considered the left side of the media.  It’s almost like a talking point order dished up by some media overlords.

A bit light for a diary, I admit, but a little long for a comment.  And I'm sorry I can't stick around, duty calls and I wanted to point this out before I get distracted.

Transcriptions mine, as accurate as I could make them under the limited time.

I like pie

by Paulie200

Candidate Barack Obama, on pie, in South Philly:

He likes sweet potato pie, his mother in law makes the best.  I knew right then that my decision to vote for him was right.

First because I like REALLY like sweet potato pie, and second, that was probably one of the most brilliant between-the-lines and over a lot of heads comments I've ever heard.

An old story

by Paulie200

[With apologies up front for brevity and scatological content.]

The current budget negotiations remind me of an old joke/story, one that should remain old until totally forgotten, but given the current circumstances, it's time to dust it off:

One day the organs of the body were all bragging about their relative merits, and which of them was, ultimately, the most important organ to the body.

The brain argued it was the center of awareness, THE most highly evolved organ in THE most highly evolved species, ever.  It controlled emotions and reason.  Most everything the rest of the body did was at the direction of the brain, its pituitary gland was the master of all the other glands, and without its interpretation of sensory input, the body would never survive.  "Without me," the brain said, "you are nothing more than meat."   As one would expect from a brain it was flawlessly logical argument.

But then the heart spoke of it's tireless 24/7/365 job, how it has been traditionally considered as the source of love and the very center of the human soul, and with good reason.  It brings oxygen and nourishment to all the other organs, and that if it stopped its ceaseless, faithful and loving duty, even for a few minutes, the body would perish.  It was a persuasive argument.

The lungs, liver and guts engaged in a visceral debate with the heart, "Without us there would be no oxygen or nourishment for any of us, the brain, and even YOU, heart!"

Next the reproductive organs stood up, "Without us NONE of you would even exist, and besides, were more FUN than any of you."  (The male brain, seeing the ummm... 'logic' of the reproductive organs argument, nodded in agreement, and began to consider itself to be the SECOND most important organ in the human body.)

The debate raged for hours when suddenly the asshole spewed out a stream of preposterous crap and then totally relaxed, allowing a huge bolus of stinky gas out of the gut.  Next it clenched tightly shut, allowing almost nothing to pass.  All attempts at reasoning with the asshole were met with more loud burst of stinky gas and nonsense.  This went on for hours, then days.  Soon all the other organs capitulated, and agreed that the asshole was not simply THE most important organ in the body, but that henceforth and forever everything that the body did was to be done the assholes way.

The moral of the story? The GOP's Teabaggers are assholes.
