From the "no shit, Sherlock!" files

Okay, Nancy—I get that you're so fucking gutless and bought-and-paid-for by the corporatocracy that you decided to completely cave to Chimpy and Darth Cheney’s demand for telecom immunity.

As Doctor Monkey von Monkerstein so eloquently said, THANKS FOR NOTHING.

When are you going to get the guts to stand up and say, “You know what? You republicans—you’re on your way OUT. The people elected us democrats to CHANGE the shit that you guys fucked up. This is one of those things. No more giving up our constitutional rights! No more corporate sell-outs! No more cowering in the corners, folks—we dems are gonna kick some ass and do our best to get this country back from the rich white neocon corporate assholes who’ve taken it over!”

I don't wanna be hatin', but I'm guessing you'll never have the guts to do anything even close to that.

But apparently, you've found the guts to agree with the most fucking obvious of notions: that Hillary Clinton faced sexism during her run for the democratic nomination.

Well, shit, Nancy! You’ve got a real pair of brass ones on you! That took some real guts to go to Shakesville or someplace and read the million posts SHOWING the sexist remarks and coverage that Hillary had to deal with on a daily basis! And gees, you're shootin' this wad a whole month after her whole fucking campaign is OVER! Wow, you're a regular Captain Courage, aren't you?

Boy, you’re just my big hero now because you're so fucking brave. If only we had more courageous dems like you!

Oh wait -- we do.

L-R, assholes Nancy "Gutless Wonder" Pelosi and Steny Fucking Hoyer.

I heard on the Thom Hartmann show that Nancy Pelosi used the "I'm not an attorney" excuse...how pathetic.

Russ Feingold said basically that anyone who supports the telecom immunity bill must not have read it.

enc said...

I voted for her because she was the only option at the time. She's been very disappointing.

I'd like to know if she voted for that cockamamie (I'm not using the words I'd like to use here) fence bill for "border control." My blood's been boiling all morning on that one.

Liberality said...

There is no excuse for their bullshit. Unless there is some invisible gun to their heads that we just don't see in which case our democracy is over and they just forgot to tell us. I am really so disgusted with the democratic party right now.

Anonymous said...

I've revoked her membership in the big boob club.

FranIAm said...

It is so pathetic, so truly pathetic.

I remember how I felt when she ascended to her role.

Which has been followed by an alarming and ongoing descent into the bowels of hell.

And she is taking all of us with her on that sick, sad ride.

CDP said...

I'm also really disappointed in her, and like so many people, I WANT to support her. She makes it hard. Hoyer's not my representative, but Christopher Van Hollen, the alleged Democrat who is, is no better.

Randal Graves said...

I feel bad for you all because I get to vote for my man Dennis and many of you get saddled with jokers like this instead.

dguzman said...

Polishifter--welcome to my humble little bloggy! Are you kidding me about Pelosi? She might as well have said, "well I'm just a little homemaker!" Feingold may be being a little too generous; I think many of his colleagues would STILL support the bill, as long as those telecom dollars keep coming in.

Enc--She's been a disappointment from Day 1; it's embarrassing. And oh man, don't even get me started on the border wall issue. The SCOTUS already refused to listen to the case charging that Chertoff was wrong to suspend all the laws and regulations in order to ram that wall thing through.

Liberality--exactly, but I think the "invisible" thing is the campaign donations. At least they're invisible to us; I'm sure they spend just as well as regular money.

DCup--what took you so long!?

Fran--I share your elation-turned-into-nausea memories.

CDP--same here. It's a disgrace.

Randal--can I move in with you? I can't bear living in a state that elected Rick Santorum much longer.

worst fucking speaker of the house ever

karenzipdrive said...

I used to stick up for Pelosi and say that the Democratic majority was too slim for her to get anything done.
But after this recent tele-spy capitulation to Bush, she can go fuck herself.
She's been a disgrace.
Cindy Sheehan would have done better.
Pelosi is just another Condi Rice, only with better suits and hair.

karenzipdrive said...

Oh, and speaking of the FISA capitulation done by chickenshit Democrats who've once again enabled Bush, can anyone explain to me why it was okay that Obama voted the same way as Hoyer and Pelosi?
When he said he objected to that one tiny part about AT&T's (etc.) immunity from civil suits, but he voted for it anyway, did that make it okay?

Bradda said...

I'll ask it again, there are Democrats in Congress??

karenzipdrive said...

I knew none of Obama's Claymates would want to explain his pandering FISA vote.
Because it's inexplicable, unless you factor in him being bought and paid for by the telecommunications lobby.

Dusty said...

Its Nancy 'the douchebag' Pelosi and Steny 'the prick' Hoyer for moi.
