Not "has become a sideshow," he is one...
We don’t know all the details of the negotiations between Mitch McConnell and the White House which apparently are closing in on an agreement, but one thing is clear, Harry Reid has become a sideshow....
McConnell went around Reid, as had John Boehner, and there was nothing Reid could do about it.

He could give up shaving and leave the DC circus to join another more serious one...

In a Tweet no president could love, political analyst and University of Virginia professor Larry Sabato, raises the specter of yesteryear, and not in a good way:
@LarrySabato Larry Sabato
And Obama? POTUS looks weak, irrelevant, Carter-ized–at least for now. Any day, I expect him to be attacked by a killer rabbit.
When Larry Sabato sees a killer rabbit looming ahead, the White House should be worried.
The reference is to an April 1979 episode when then President Jimmy Carter returned to the White House after a solo fishing trip to his native Georgia. He claimed he had used his paddle to fend off a berserk rabbit swimming right at his boat....The Washington Post ran the story on the front page under a banner headline: “PRESIDENT ATTACKED BY RABBIT.”

Maybe when considering cuts liberals for the first time will leave defense alone so there can be money for research and development for an actual Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch. The weapon used to defeat the Killer Bunny from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Below is a replica...
Of course there is a major design flaw that liberals will never be able to look past. I don't want to say what it is, but I'll give you a hint, it rhymes with "Christian cross." So we'll definitely need federal funding to figure out how to get around this....
To make it work you have to count to three, so entrusting it to Biden will be considered a treasonous offense.

Let's keep this really simple...
There's that, and more from today's Newsbusted.
The fiery, independent version of the Republican senator from Arizona took to the floor of the Senate Wednesday morning. Demanding “straight talk,” Mr. McCain accused conservatives of abandoning reason by opposing the House Republican leader’s plan to resolve the debt crisis.
Mr. McCain mocked Tea Party-allied Republicans in the House for believing — wrongly, he said — that President Obama and Democrats will get the blame for a default if Republicans refuse to increase the nation’s debt ceiling.
By that flawed logic, “Democrats would have no choice but to pass a balanced budget amendment and reform entitlements and the Tea Party Hobbits could return to Middle Earth,” he said, quoting a Wall Street Journal editorial.
From The New York Times
Maybe this is some liberal psyche out, they're not too sharp when it comes to anything related to the Tea Party anyway. Maybe the Wall Street Journal thinks they're ignorant of of Tolkien mythology as well.
Think about it. "Tea Party Hobbits?" Is that supposed to be an insult? The Hobbits win in the epic Lord of the Rings story!
Well, not all of them. There are RINO's, and then there's...
Oxygen to the brain is your friend liberals! I promise!
Anyway, here's the quote of the day from Nancy Pelosi...
“What we’re trying to do is save the world from the Republican budget. We’re trying to save life on this planet as we know it today.”
More at The Lonely Conservative
Being a Democrat must be SOOOOOOOOOOOOO hard! I mean, saving the world is a BIG EFFING DEAL you know.
What a burden they must shoulder. Not the saving of the world, but the having to share Earth with Republicans who are literally trying to destroy it like we've got some secret escape pod will take us back to Krypton, unaware that we destroyed that planet too. (The way Superman is being written these days you'd think what I'm saying wouldn't necessarily be taken in jest.)
The only super power morons like Obama and Pelosi have is comparable to King Midas, except everything they touch turns to s**t.
Everything is apocalyptic with these people, and every leader they scrape from what seems to be an increasingly bottomless barrel becomes more and more comically messianic in their eyes.
Even as we stare squarely at a downgrade in our AAA rating, or a total default. They insist that digging the hole even deeper is literally saving the world. Even children know you can't actually reach communist China that way.
Want to know how you can be sure something isn't earth shatteringly dire? Check to see if it turns liberals into basket cases. For example, while these doomsday doctors diagnose panetary fevers new data is out, again, proving the threat of global warming is the paper tiger reasonable people knew it to be.
Nancy Pelosi needs to spend more time outside of Washington and San Francisco so she can understand what a foreigner she is to the rest of the country, and that nobody understands the language she is trying to speak.

Good thing there's a propellor on the helment, because considering they're for protection against head injuries, I'm not quite sure why he'd need it.

An excellent reminder brought to us by The People's Cube...
Now, some of you might be concerned that I'm endorsing the notion that there is a connection between the Soviet communists of yesteryear and the Democratic Party of today....
Either they reinforce that they're completely cuckoo, like David Wu, embroiled in a sex scandal...
Or complete a-holes who think it's funny to mock a tragic death of someone like Steve Irwin...
I've been doing this for a while, but I just haven't seen anything really comparable on the right to stuff like this....
Sometimes the line between real and make-believe gets blurred...
Sometimes it's DEFINITELY make-believe...
What? Does anyone really think that after almost 50 years she'll seek contrition? This broad got away with treason and lives in the lap of luxury. She doesn't need the forgiveness of scrubs like Vietnam veterans...isn't that right Jane?

Quote of the day...
Do you recall what George Bush’s final deficit was? It was loudly decried as a “record-breaking” figure in the mainstream press, and it was indeed far too high. The amount was about $458 billion. Barack Obama racks up that much debt in three months. What sort of political “courage” can be found in a deal that trims a few hundred billion a year, and still leaves him with double the “record-breaking” deficits of his predecessor?.....
Insanity, as defined by Albert Einstein, is doing the same thing over and over again, while expecting different results. The President himself just said, before one of the last few friendly audiences his handlers could cobble together for him, that “every Democratic and Republican president” has tried the same thing he wants to try again… and yet, our insolvent sham of a government is about to slam into a debt ceiling 14.3 trillion dollars high.
More at Human Events
For a while I got it, Democrats were just being Democrats, but at this point shouldn't their conscience kick in?
What makes them think when they wake up in the morning that they will be able to preserve the welfare state that sucks up more than half of our budget?
Our debt is about $8 trillion more than when George W. Bush took office. Even without the wars (about 1.3 trillion over ten years) and tax cut (about 2.8 trillion, if you accept the notion they "cost" revenue) our debt still would have risen by somewhere between $3-4 trillion.
That's the legacy of liberal Democrat babies The
New Screw Deal and Great Society You Lied To Me.
Continuing to ignore that entitlements are prime perpetrator of the impending fiscal armageddon is indeed pure insanity. Either that or the Democrats are so full of pride that they'll stop at nothing to make sure their sole justification of having a role in government survives (because it ain't national security).
Why would they do that? Other than a myopic lust for power I couldn't begin to answer that question.Add a comment
I've always been irritated by this picture, because the comparison is just SO obnoxious...
Then some bozo went ahead and made it even more obnoxious...
This has irked me for years. I don't care if nobody else likes my latest demotivational piece, but I'm doing this for me...
For so long now we've suspected that everyone in Washington DC was on drugs. Well they've just figured out that sharing is caring, and now we can have a piece of the action...

You would think it would make people smarter. In fact, the study is totally backwards. The internet has been liberalism's public enemy number 1 forever because everything they say since the 90's can't be challenged with a simple "nuh uh" anymore.
Now with Google when you do that liberals say, "Oh yeah? You and what army?"
And you can say, "This army of information on why "liberals suck" that is 3 million strong and arrived in .05 seconds."
You don't even need the internet to do the math there. Liberals love government, and the government gave us the post office, and they deliver .05 packages in 3 million seconds.
Now there are 3,000,001 ways that liberals suck.
Anyway there's that, and more from today's Newsbusted.
