(Ed. Note: Rough Day, and trying to fight my way off the DL)

Stand, they did ...

All the dittoheads ... All the dwarfs, finks, phonies and frauds ...

In other words, the Republican Caucus of the U.S. Congress.

Christ, could you imagine if they were staffing the Titanic?

I certainly wouldn't want passage on that trip, worrying that they would vote, en block, not to lower the life boats.

"Sorry, folks, but we want the Captain to use our plan."

Ahh, but they already have run us into the proverbial financial iceberg, and now, they want to nitpick over what type, or what size, buckets we should use to start bailing out the water.

Or, their whiny bleating about Tax Cuts, just who should be able to climb into those lifeboats.

There's some other noise, as well, but it's hard to make out - it's only Mark Halperin, talking with his head up his ass, again.

I'm with John Kerry, and Kathy, from 'Comments from Left Field' - Fuck'em (my choice of words).

Blast out the Tax Cuts, squeeze back in the Contraceptives, and tell the GOP nitwits to follow the advice of their Leader-in-Exile, The Cheeseburger That Sweats (h/t Barry Crimmins), that being, to bend over and grab their ankles!

It ain't their playground anymore.

They are the MINORITY Party, and, they don't get to call the shots, or grease the skids, as they did, so proudly and willingly, for The Bush Grindhouse.

All President Obama, and the Democrats have to do is keep up the Eddie Haskell routine, keep saying nice things about the MINORITY Party, invite them to join in at every turn, but keep the eyes straight ahead and get the business that needs to be done, done.

At some point, their own supporters, their own constituents, will see their obstructionism, and ask why they don't have their gloves on, why aren't they in the game.

Something tells me, that despite decades, and generations, apart, Sly and the Family Stone are singing this song to President Obama, and the Dems;

Sly & The Family Stone - Stand
