The Party's Over

via cosmicnavellint:

The Old Fart tells it like it is---

--calmly as I could not.

The reason I'm down on the so called "movement" is because they are spouting the same talking points that I hear every day here in Mississippi. I'm not down on the people of my state, they are truly some of the most friendly folks you would ever want to meet. But when things are going on that they don't understand they become a little unhinged. They look for someone to blame and it sure ain't them.

I Could Not Agree More

Heather Friday at has the best description of the tea party people I have read so far:

"It would be nice to see these wingnuts challenged by our sorry excuse for a "main stream media" as well as Cenk did here. They'd be marginalized in the manner they deserve to be rather than propped up as some sort of grass roots movement, which they're not.

This tea party movement is one part Dick Armey and company fake astroturf protest, one part angry McCain and Palin soreloserman, one part abortion clinic protester, one part white nationalist militia movement/gun rights nuts, one part ClusterFox/Glenn Beck brain dead watcher, one part anti-immigration Lou Dobbs/Tom Tancredo fan, one part southern racist that isn't done fighting the Civil War yet and one part Ron Paul/Libertarian."
-emphasis mine.

I should put this on my facebook page but I try to keep away from politics there so I won't alienate my family.

Role Reversal

What do you get when you have a bunch of over-weight white people flinging shit at "the monkey in the White House"?

The Southern Republican Leadership Conference.


I Get No Respect

At home all I seem to be good for is bringing in a paycheck and doing all the heavy lifting.

I'm asked about my opinion about things only to be ridiculed or rejected. So, why bother.

I'm the Rodney Dangerfield of my family.

Whoo Weee!

Booman is hot! It seems Doocy "The Douche" on Fox and Friends has pissed him off royally.

I can't say that I blame him. Doocy is a dink.

Read it.

How does the media continue to believe that Fox News is a real news organization?
