… would Obama get his strength and leadership numbers up if he directly took on the insurance industry and the Republicans?
YA THINK? People love winners and that’s why Yankee Stadium is filled to the rafters, it’s why people continue to pay for Red Wings tickets and it’s why they continue to vote Republican in the absence of a compelling alternative. Obama would get his strength and leadership numbers up, and he’d get his actual strength and leadership up, and Congress would have approval ratings slightly higher than chlamydia, if they all directly took on people who want you to starve and die and go bankrupt and preferably in that order.
Why is this always so fucking hard to get? We are not talking about rocket surgery here. I get that in the Senate everybody’s friends and you don’t want to upset your friends and absent calling somebody Macaca in public there’s basically no way you won’t get re-elected as a senator so fuck it, but there comes a point … right? When you get sick of being a national joke? Don’t these people ever get tired of getting their lunch money taken?
I’ve been saying it for years, and lots of us dirty fucking hippies have been saying it for years: the only thing a bully understands is a good hard punch to the face. So punch.
Crack van Wednesday night.
