Just when you thought Alan Simpson of the Cat Food Commission, couldn't get anymore outrageous, or horrifying as the King of the Shock Doctrine, he manages to make Orange Tan Man, John Boehner look all warm and fuzzy and even somewhat sane and civil.
Gee, thanks so much President Obama for choosing the Worst Person in the World: Alan Simpson (who even has less class or finesse than Dick Morris..if that is even possible).
I'm pretty certain at this point that Simpson is suffering from senility or a serious case of out of control psychopathic greed disease. Mr. Simpson simply cannot wait until this coming April, to watch what he hopes will be a bloodbath in our government so that he and his other Robber Baron pals, can do whatever it takes to get their greedy little hands on what is left of our nation's safety net. Bastard.
The Republican co-chair of the White House's fiscal commission predicted this morning that his controversial recommendations for reducing long-term deficits will have a real opportunity to become enacted next year, when the nation brushes up against its debt ceiling, and newly elected Republicans threaten to send the country into default.
"I can't wait for the blood bath in April," said Alan Simpson at a Christian Science Monitor breakfast round table with reporters this morning. "It won't matter whether two of us have signed this or 14 or 18. When debt limit time comes, they're going to look around and say, 'What in the hell do we do now? We've got guys who will not approve the debt limit extension unless we give 'em a piece of meat, real meat, off of this package.' And boy the bloodbath will be extraordinary."
Yesterday, Republican leaders, including soon-to-be Speaker John Boehner and NRCC chairman Pete Sessions made it clear that the the GOP will attempt to tie increasing the debt limit to spending cuts. "We're going to have to deal with it as adults," Boehner said at a leadership press conference. "Whether we like it or not, the federal government has obligations and we have obligations on our part." "I have been called a Republican toady covering Obama's fanny so he can destroy the Republican party, Erskine's evil over on his side," Simpson said. "And it's a good place to be."
Wait a minute, wait a friggin minute. Did Simpson just say that 'he was covering Obama's fanny'? OMFG. Does anyone remember ANYONE EVER referring to a President of the United States in this manner?
And what was that? Boehner? "We're going to have to deal with it as adults," ? Oh you mean like this:
Have another drink John, and let's all get real 'adulty' as we watch you and your fellow Republican, John Simpson 'covering Obama's fanny.'
Both of these fucking idiots are part and parcel of just how low class, cut throat and cunning the Republicans really are.
But Alan Simpson should have been put away in some nice padded cell years ago, only to be let out for shuffleboard, basket weaving, and bingo. Any public official that could actually make such a statement:
"I can't wait for the blood bath in April,"
is clearly out of his fucking mind, or emotionally incompetent to do the 'people's business.' So wonderful to have 'the adult' in charge, isn't it?
Great pick President Obama. Hope Mr. Simpson keeps your 'fanny' covered for you all nice and pretty, so that when he reports back to you on the 'blood bath' everyone can have a few drinks and chuckles as seniors eat their cat food and freeze in their homes.
Thanks as always,
