This country, in the best sense, went from a sort of purgatory, to liberal hell, and now it just clawed itself back into purgatory.
Despite Obama's snark about not giving the GOP the keys to the car, it is more clear than ever that he definitely not allowed to do the driving.
Oh, that's cute....Johnny B is trying to fit in with the cool kid....
So does the New Yorker live in Wonderland or what? What the hell are they trying to say here? That Boehner will be seeking approval from a no-nonsense Obama? They clearly missed the part where the GOP told him to buckle up because the car is about to hit a wall called "no compromise."
The only fist bumping we should be seeing on the cover of any magazine is Obama's fist bumping his arrogant face. Talk about global warming...think about the hot air that would come out of that blow.
Denial may not be a river in Africa, but it definitely flows through the liberal establishment more freely than the air between Biden's ears.Add a comment
Is this a dream come true or what? (my comments in yellow)
Despite widespread complaints about massive losses that will put Democrats in the minority, Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Friday she will try to stay on as leader of her party in the House.
The decision exposed a rift between Pelosi's liberal allies and the dwindling number of moderate Democrats closet Republicans?, who feel besieged and eager for substantive and symbolic changes in direction after Tuesday's Republican rout. It also is likely to trigger leadership battles farther down the ladder.
Pelosi, the nation's first female speaker, said many colleagues urged her to seek the post of minority leader in the new Congress that convenes in January the core of liberal ideology, after all, is rewarding failure. That will be the Democrats' top post, because Republicans, who grabbed more than 60 Democratic-held seats Tuesday, will elect the next speaker. It will be John Boehner of Ohio, who will swap titles with Pelosi if she succeeds in her bid.
"We have no intention of allowing our great achievements to be rolled back," Pelosi, 70, said in a letter to her colleagues. Is she talking about the GOP or the voters?

I don't know how much more plainly I can put this. If the achievements under her speakership were so great she would be the speaker come January. What she is putting on display now is NOT arrogance, we had the luxury of calling it that BEFORE the unwashed masses, with their naturally occuring wrinkles, had their say.
Since the office of Vice President is somewhat more...um...prominent (relative to an inch worm's erection) than anything that comes out of Congress I think we overlook the fact that the only person in Washington DC whose dearth of intelligence can rival Joe Biden's would be Nancy Pelosi's.
I'm willing to concede that I could be wrong. Joe's real problem is that makes gaffes. When he said FDR got on TV in 1929, that was an honest mistake....he knows FDR's actually RECORD television, and they weren't even invented yet anyways...soooo....
There is a sincerity to the words that come out of Pelosi's tightly pursed mouth. Extra words can hurt, so when she says they have to pass bills to find out what's in them she is sincere because her face muscles can't afford her not to be. She may indeed be dumber.
In the end the Democrats have to do what is best for the country, so I hope she wins so she can flex the Dems minority party muscle.

I don't know...cynicism may be too nice of a way to put it...
This is a classic chicken/egg conundrum. Have liberals always been THIS morally depraved, or has the culture bar dropped so low that they now limbo to innocent people dying so inept piles of pinko poop can get their mojo back?
Does tubby there even realize that it wouldn't even be real mojo? He's basically suggesting we need to be tricked into liking Obama again. How??? (look for it at 1:05)...
How did the culture get to this point where the comedians aren't the indelicate pricks before liberal pundits?
There is a moment when Obama can "reconnect" with America in a way that doesn't require liberals to step outside of their abortion bubble and accept the deaths of innocent people as an acceptable means to an end. Its really simple...SERVE THE INTERESTS OF THE NATION AND NOT HIS EGO FED POLITICS!
When we get a chance we should make sure Biden knows "mojo" isn't his paparazzi code name for the time he daydreamed hooking up with Michelle.

Mitch McConnell "doubling down" on not compromising with Obama.
""Over the past week, some have said it was indelicate of me to suggest that our top political priority over the next two years should be to deny President Obama a second term in office..."But the fact is, if our primary legislative goals are to repeal and replace the health spending bill, to end the bailouts, cut spending and shrink the size and scope of government, the only way to do all these things is to put someone in the White House who won't veto any of these things," the Kentucky Republican will say. "We can hope the president will start listening to the electorate after Tuesday's election. But we can't plan on it."
While Democratic leaders said Republicans should be prepared to compromise to pass legislation, McConnell will make clear that he wants the administration to "move in our direction" if it wants his party's cooperation.
Lets get something straight not compromising is the compromise. This election was the only thing standing between Democrats who are ruining the meaning of the word "progressive" and the point of a real life pitchfork.
Maybe they're trying to save face. Maybe they viewed the election returns through a mirror....
One thing is for sure, they are failing to realize that their hubris over the last two years has been nothing less than nuclear in its damage to what this country is supposed to be.
Conservatives have been ignored, marginalized, laughed at, impersonated as racist, lied about, and forced to say "Vice President Biden" for two long years because Democrats thought their win in 2008 was an affirmation that we wanted them to run our lives for us.
The Tea Party warned them this was wrong, public opinion polls warned them, even the cockroaches were running away from the bomb the Dems were daring the Tea Party to blow.
That the Democrats retain control of the Senate is the blessing (for them) of having only 1/3 of them up for election at a time. Even Obama is on notice that some unknown Republican named "Generic" is beating him in the polls ONLY HALF WAY through his
first only term.
It needs to be understood that Dems have nothing to really bargain with right now. Their agenda has been roundly and unequivocally rejected. November 6, 2012 is going to be National Tissue for Liberals day if they think now is the time for their "enemies" to humbly compromise with THEM.
How else can we make this any clearer? Maybe a telegram will get their attention...
Dear Democrats, STOP
Man up and pay the piper NOW before we take more of your children away.
America's Voters WONT STOP

“I got so obsessed with [C-SPAN] LOL! I'm sure she did that it was kind of interfering with my life. Sarah Palin came on, and I thought, Oh, f**k, this is the end. Because a dumb woman is a dumb woman.” YOU DON'T SAY CHER! On the subject of Arizona governor Jan Brewer, Cher says, “She was worse than Sarah Palin, if that is possible. This woman was like a deer in headlights. She’s got a handle on the services of the state, and I would not let her handle the remote control.”
Read the full article at Vanity Fair here for more gems of Cheracuda wisdom
I'm so glad to get to be able to get insight from pillars of intelligence like Cher. The only thing more artificial than her entire being is the notion that she is smart enough to unleash her intelligence on even the dumbest of magazines, let a lone Vanity Fair.
This is a grown woman who will be collecting social security checks any day now, and "da bomb" is in her vocabulary.
When Barbie is running low on plastic she borrows some from Cher.
Styrofoam bio degrades faster than she will.
I barely want to get liberal political opinion from people who are qualified to give them let alone from someone like her who could call a "dunce cap" a "cap."
It's times like this I wish the smart half of Sonny and Cher was still alive.Add a comment

The 2010 election is a huge step in the right direction, but we need to remember that this needs to be the first election where we win the battle and then we don't go home when its over, ever again.
We have to hold people who accept the label of conservative accountable, because the last two years is what we get when bad Republicans make the body politic so sick to its stomach that they make exlax look like Halloween candy.
Honest conservatives have known since November 5, 2008 that this wasn't going to end well for the Democrats. They knew this wasn't an affirmation of crazy liberal policies, but a rejection of the people who were entrusted to carry the torch of real American values who kept pissing on the torch and calling it rain.
"People out there are still hurting very badly, and they are still scared. And so part of the reason that our politics seems so tough right now, and facts and science and argument does not seem to be winning the day all the time, is because we're hard-wired not to always think clearly when we're scared," Obama said at a Democratic fundraiser Saturday in Boston. "And the country is scared, and they have good reason to be."

The preceding message was sponsored by the corporation for NEVER LETTING A CRISIS GO TO WASTE.
Which is a better instance of voters "not thinking" clearly? Voting to give power to the party that wants to repeal a health care takeover they never wanted, or "you know what, Vice President Biden has a nice ring to it."
College girls 10 tequila shots deep and using absinthe as a chaser at a fraternity party titled "Lets Have An Orgy" make more responsible decisions than the throngs of ZMBIES wetting their panties over a man who, as they are just now realizing, has less substance than a hollowed out cheese puff.
