Extortion Politics and the Federal Shutdown

Normally, it wouldn’t be possible to highjack an entire nation like Somali pirates grabbing a fishing boat. Countries are kind of big things. And, where do you throw the grabbling hooks?

Well, nation hijacking is solved by a little group of 49 legislators who take their orders from a single Lobbyist.

Capt'€™n Lobbyist if ya please. Arrrr, Capt'€™n Lobbyist Grover Norquist.€
Strangely, Michele Bachman serves as first mate. She isn'™t exactly Smee smart, either. Heck, she isn’t any kind of smart. But, this is just the kind of blank slate that pirate scum need.

No scruples and no brains desired.

And Cap’n Norquist got twice as much as he bargain for with Michele Bachman and the band of Tea Party Caucus*

*real name. Also, I love the caucus-ian part of that little group. Kind of Freudian of them. (sub-text Tea Party Caucasians. Cute.)

Michele Bachmann admits she €˜doesn'€™t understand it all€™ but it doesn't stop her from having an agenda bigger than it all.

I can’t believe she actually likes this blank slate€™ photo, and uses it as an official image. This makes writing satire almost too easy. I should blush at not having to use any Photoshop to master her absolute gaze of ignorant unknowing. But, this is her. And she actually LIKES this picture.

Tea Party Caucus€“ well, it'€™s a juvenile website with 4 pages of information. One of those pages is a link to the Constitution and Declaration of Independence, although these politicians demonstrate absolute ignorance of any of the text. They just hold the idea of those documents sacred; not the messy application of freedom for everybody.

Anyway, I know some 8 year-olds with more advanced WordPress blogs on Lego construction then the Tea Party Caucus website has for national governance. Go ahead and look, maybe they will improve the website after my little book. God knows they have the money for it:

Yet, these simpletons lead by Michele Bachmann?!?“ are gonna dang straight teach the nation sumthin€™.

Really, how in the green earth, does Michele Bachmann get to run anything. She is not bright enough to arrange a community garage sale (my apologies to community garage sales everywhere).

The answer is the simple-minded control of a simple-minded, but mean-spirited lobbyist –– Mr. Grover Norquist.

Yes, a lobbyist is in charge of a nation. He is in-charge because he bought 49 ignorant Senators and Representatives breakfast. The breakfast part isn'€™t satire, nor, an exaggeration.

This motley crew of Tea Party thugs sold out the nation because of breakfasting with Grover Norquist.

More on this later.

However, both Cruz and Bachmann already signed the Norquist pledge. Yanno... that 'enemy of my enemy is my friend' nepotism in the GOP.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Sarah Palin is a clueless, brainless, grifter who probably resents Bachman the other clueless brainless pirate for stealing some of her thunder,, They sure got rid of McDonnell fast enough....Wanna bet it was their own that outed her as a witch,.  Couldn't handle a divided male diversion of what they perceive as eye candy.

      Vetwife - you are right on about the narcissism. Sure they scratch each other's eyes the moment the media shines more spotlight on the other. But they are thick as thieves.

      Collectively, they all are robber-barrons, and only love themselves. But, like little drops of toxic mercury, they snap back together to deny the nation anything good.

      Anyway, I laugh at your grifter comment and signed up for the United Veterans. I have 2 Marines right now and I was 8.5 years as a DOD contractor in a missile division. My father was WWII technical sgt. Much Success to your cause.
