Now that the whole country can see their toes hanging over the edge of the fiscal cliff I wanted to congratulate the Tea Baggers for forming an extraordinarily powerful political faction that seems to have taken control of the Republican party and put a brick under the brake pedal on the Crazy Train.
Well done sirs.
Here I was worried about those obnoxious little Blue Dogs all this time.
All I can say to the leaders of the Republican party is, you asked for it.
For over forty years now that I can remember personally, the Republicans have always had this certain percentage of their party who were pretty much mad dogs who they would occasionally take the muzzle off and let run amok when it suited their purpose but they somehow managed to keep a tight leash on them and when their appointed task was finished, back in the cage they would go.
Now the lunatics are running the asylum.
John Boehner just got his walking papers as Speaker of the House after failing to notice that the Tea Bag Express was building up a head of steam in the background .
Even if he gets reelected to Speaker, he will be like the dog just back from the vet with that confused look on his face, licking and licking and licking but unable to find his balls anymore and wondering what the fuck happened.
So there will be no last minute deal from the Republicans, the No New Taxes idiot squad threw a wrench in the gears and now we ALL are going to take it up the ass.
I suppose they will crow that they won their little battle of idealogical macrame as there won’t be any NEW taxes.
No there won’t but there will be a Metric Assload of old ones come barreling down the pike.
Just to make it just that more fun, the IRS is standing around with their head in their asses, unable to take action and untangle the fucking mess in time for every payroll clerk in the fucking country to figure out just how much to withhold for payroll taxes and millions of people are facing having even more payroll taxes being withheld later in the year to catch up so they won’t end up owing enough at the end of next year to buy a used car.
Yep, the Fiscal Cliff is right in front of us and the Great Financial Clusterfuck is right behind it.
The marriage penalty will be back, child tax credits will be cut in half, Capitol Gains are going up, the inheritance tax is going up, all kinds of good shit is coming back.
But Grover Norquist can be proud of himself, none of these are New Taxes and every God Damn bit of it can be laid right at the feet of the Republican party.
The Party of NO.
Would you like some lemon in your tea?
