Let’s see: there was a loss in a special election with a slacker Democratic candidate and suddenly the sky is falling. Scott Brown isn’t the messiah, he’s not the next coming of anything: he’s a fluke who ran a good campaign that capitalized on angst over the recession on steroids. It’s time for Congressional Dems to learn from what happened and GET SOMETHING FUCKING ACCOMPLISHED and stop acting like malakas.
If Congress continues to dither and delay it could be 1994 all over. What’s worse is that it’s completely unnecessary this time if they simply man and woman up and get something done. I understand the process and that it’s important BUT people don’t give a rat’s ass about it, they want action and not endless hang wringing over how fucking hard it is. Let the mean old Senate Goopers filibuster, that’s one way the voters will learn that the Republicans have NO PROGRAM except for relentless opposition. We had those twisted fuckers on the ropes with a foot on their throat and we let them limp away to fight another day. Why? Fecklessness and malakatude pure and simple.
The White House is just as bad:like the Clinton and Carter administrations they’ve failed to tend their base. It’s like a garden and if you don’t tend it, weeds sprout and they choke the life out of everything. Break out the frakking weedwhacker and use it to mow down your opponents. Democratic Presidents like FDR, Truman, JFK and LBJ were tough sumbitches who had their flaws but they were NOT human punching bags. It’s time to stop being the party of Oprah and kick chinless Mitch McConnell and Leader Boner in the bollocks. Our ideas are superior but we lose our nerve when things go bad. Life is hard, folks and it’s even harder when you act like a sniveling malaka.
As much as I hate to do this, it’s time to quote a noted right-wing politician, Margaret Thatcher who once said “Now is not the time to go wobbly.” Wobbliness equals malakatude in my book.
