  1. When they came for Boehner I didn’t object because he was an orange useless freak and I was sick of getting fucked over.

  2. Does this come under the heading of “Yes, We Can” or “Forward!?”

  3. Was there ever any question that Boehner was going to sell us out?

  4. Oh, come now. That number’s only a problem if you’re one of the 53% who pay in to the system. (In which case, it’s more like $35 grand.)

  5. He had a lot of help.

  6. - Just for starters there is no “tax cut” in any of this. Its all about pending tax increases, so everyone in DC on both sides of the aisle are playing the lo-info public as usual.

  7. Shocking! Astonishing! Totally unexpected!

    /absolutely nobody, anywhere, ever

  8. Honestly? I’m kind of impressed. Even as shockingly dumb as liberal policies have become, GOP is still the clear winner.

    Shame it turns out you can become too stupid to be a superpower…. Wait! I mean, Ameruka 4ever!

    Whoo, caught myself.

  9. OT: I’m in charge of an “End of the World” playlist for this weekend. Any suggestions?

  13. Not exactly Mayan, but very groovy end-of-the-world stuff just the same: Atomic Platters, “Cold War Music From the Golden Age of Homeland Security.”

    I’m particularly fond of “Crawl Out Through The Fallout,” but then I’ve always had a soft spot for lounge music.

  14. Throw in some Gregorian Chants to be on the safe side.
