You Lie! No, You Lie!

I took a nap through most of the Obama speech, but I woke up during parts of it. I actually did see the part where Obama said they would not cover illegal immigrants, but I didn’t take much notice of the jeers. For one thing, I would expect no less from the Republicans, so I was honestly not surprised in the least.

Apparently everyone afterwards took notice of one Joe Wilson, who was singled out as the Republican scapegoat because you could hear him over everyone else. Also, he pointed his finger, which is rude (in 3rd grade).

To me, it’s not about Obama being right or wrong, truthful or a liar. I disagree with him on many things. It’s about politely waiting for the other person to finish. You know what Democrats learned to do? Watch them when a Republican is talking: they take notes. They don’t do it because they cherish every word, but because actually addressing what someone says with a full explaination is what civilized adults do. Shouting at someone in a room full of people while they are giving a prepared speech just makes you, well, a Republican.

The truth is, all the Republican elected officials ought to be strapped to a chair, have their eye lids held open and made to watch every speech Bush made to Congress in the last eight years, over and over and over again.

Then, if their minds haven’t completely turned into American cheese, strip them down and make them run naked through a gauntlet of the Democrats holding paddles. Maybe let the Republican aides get a few licks in, as well. It’s really nothing these frat boys haven’t done before.

That is your place. You are meaningless, sniveling rats. You lost. Get over it. Democrats put up with your shit for eight years, twelve in Congress. You had your chance, and you fucked it up big time. If your ideas didn’t suck, you wouldn’t be in this situation.

Real adults accept that you can’t win them all. Real adults acknowledge defeat. Real adults admit when they have been wrong. Real adults apologize. Joe Wilson impressed me; he’s the first Republican in a long time who has apologized. [Of course, some conservatives, like Rush Limbaugh, wish he had not apologized.]

Relax, take it easy, and stop acting like whiney children. The world didn’t end when Bush was President, I’m positive Obama will do fine. Go back to your yachts, have some martinis, fuck your mistresses, and go home to your families. Sleep in late tomorrow, who cares. You aren’t in power anymore. Stop acting like you are the will of the people.

Now if we could just get the Democrats to grow some adult teeth…


  1. Well, at least I can still drink a martini and sleep in.

  2. If you don't have a yacht, why vote Republican? Are you one of those "clutching their guns in the night" Republicans? :P
