Don’t worry. You can watch it all here in 45 seconds… Except for the even uglier part I told you about last night. The irony? By the standards of today’s Teabagger Party, Ronald Reagan was a tax and spend communist.When he was governor… . . . → Read More: Montreal Simon: If You Missed the Republican Debate…

…because they piss their own bed and gleefully wallow around in it. So who’s to blame for the US government’s credit rating being downgraded by S&P for the first time in history? Who else? Yes, the Teapublicans: the same bozos who were ready to go all Thelma and Louise with the economy bound and gagged [...] . . . → Read More: I’m downgrading the teabaggers to peebaggers
It’s a scary and surrealistic spectacle. The most powerful nation on earth being held hostage by a group of fanatical teabaggers, who are dragging the President, the country, and the global economy towards the abyss.
