So, after "Beefcake Brown's" win in "blue" Massachusetts on Tuesday night, what can we discern from the "victory"? I discern this: America is having a collective hissy fit and the Democrats are going to get one year to make the sun come out, the flowers to grow, the grass to turn green and everyone will sing Kumbaya and the whole freaking world will live in peace and harmony and if that doesn't happen, we'll all hold our collective breaths, stamp our feet, turn blue, like a bunch of petulant five-year olds and vote for the GOP. That'll show 'em.
First, we can discard that idiotic canard that the Dems actually had a 60 seat majority. No such animal EVER existed. When Joe LIEberman, Ben "Nebraska Graft" Nelson, Mary Landrieu and Blanche Lincoln are part of your caucus, I'd rather have enemies because these clowns sure as hell aren't your friends.
Now, is health care dead? Depends. Do we listen to Joe and his ilk and accede to his every freaking demand,or do we actually tell Joe to fuck off and pass REAL health care reform, the version originally passed by the House? In short, FU Joe, Blanche, Mary, Ben, Mitch, Rahm, the collective talking heads, Harry, Boner, Rush, Glen, Susan, Olympia and if you don't finally get it, Mr. President, that these people are out to kill you (literally and figuratively) and you don't bring a plastic knife to a gun fight and expect to defend yourself, then a very big FUCK YOU to you also, Barack.
Yes, I am pissed off this morning that Massachusetts voters decided to vote for a beefcake moron with not a clue about good governance and will, in reflexive lock step, vote for every draconian piece of legislation that comes down the pike and that the Dems will be blamed for W's massive incompetence and fraud, but the White House brought this upon themselves by trying to ram this bi-partisan bullshit down our throats. In this atmosphere, with these assholes, it will not work!!! Mr. President, you need to grow a spine and ditch those around you that are still feeding you this crapola that playing nice with the GOP is a winning ticket. All "playing nice" and trying to make everyone happy is nothing more than a recipe for disaster in November.
I am a firm believer in the maxim that "you never underestimate the ignorance of the American people". America is mad but at the wrong people. However, in these times, they will listen to idiots such as Beck and will fall for every tea bagger nut job line of shit. Our side needs to counter this by showing the American people that "change" is not just a catchphrase or some hollow, meaningless rhetoric. We saw what happened last night when you alienate the base, Mr. President. Democrats who get treated like shit will kick you square in the nads, Mr. President and vote Republican, even though it violates every principle they "believe" in.
In short, either do your job, grow a spine or get bent. You don't play nice with these motherfuckers. Last night was a sterling example of what happens when you do. The ball is now in your court, Mr. President.
