Asleep at the Wheel


I couldn’t resist the FB snark for my conservative friends


Mike Myers to challenge John Thune?


I guess Mr. Myers has been throwing the idea around. I like it. Let’s admit it, he will pound Ironic Johnny on Obamacare, and the Healthcare industrial Complex. The one thing I would hope Mike considers is running as the Democratic candidate. Even this hardcore Indy would love to see him get party support.

Over the past couple of years I have gotten to know Mike. He is dynamic. I can’t tell you the amount of stimulating conversations we have had. His biting cynicism makes me jealous. His grasp of the issues is mammoth. I say, send the old man to DC.

Why does the local media treat politicians like royalty?


Meet the Thune Monarchy

I have often balked at the notion that a politician is just that, a servant to the people. But somehow our media has to make them into a monarchy.

Trust me, I could could go on and on about Mr. Do Nothing Obstructionist Ironic Johnny, but he has done so little lately, except climb the leadership ladder, that I am in a loss for words.

So, our Senior Senator figured out reproduction, and now we should do a story about it.

Gripping, investigative reporting. Purely Gripping.

Letterman’s ‘Stooge’ of the night, Thune

FF: 11:15

Ironic Johnny, still a lying sack of Thune-Bag

The Keystone XL Pipeline project will create 20,000 jobs? Where John? In Canada? He also repeats the ‘Medicare & Social Security’ bankruptcy mantra.

Lies. Lies. Lies.




Thune-Bag is concerned about govt spending? LMAO!

Yeah, this is from the guy who continues to support tax cuts for the rich, voted for two unneeded wars and asked for the biggest federal loan in the history of our country for a private RR company;

Thune told reporters Wednesday. “To me, the pledge isn’t the problem in Washington; the problem in Washington isn’t that we don’t tax enough, it’s that we spend too much.”

Yeah, and what is ironic Johnny going to do about it? NAFT as usual!


It’s a good thing Thune is getting that Scooter money

I guess they have to make sure they are getting that Medicare money.

Thune agrees, Obamacare is killing people (H/T – Helga)

I’m amazed that our local media never picks up on this stuff;

Unimpressed by the timeline, Hewitt pressed Republicans to move faster. He compared the urgency of repeal to Congressional action in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks and argued that people are already “dying” from the law. Thune seemed to agree with the sentiment:

HEWITT: Yeah, the reason I balk a little bit is only because I know people are out there dying under the burdens of this thing.

THUNE: Yeah.

HEWITT: And they expect, you know, the light speed for Congress is like molasses for the rest of the real world.

THUNE: Yeah.

HEWITT: And so it just seems to me that after 9/11, you guys moved fast, and I would hope it would happen again.

Like I have said in the past, I don’t agree with everything in the healthcare bill, but it certainly isn’t ‘killing’ people. That is the Republican’s plan. Ironic Johnny is famous for calling the kettle black.

As Helga pointed out to me;

Apparently people are dying right and left because of “Obamacare.”  Even though it hasn’t gone into effect yet, only portions have gone into effect, Thune says “yeah” people are dying. It appears, surprise, surprise, he doesn’t give a shit about the people of South Dakota, the people who need healthcare the most. But why should he care, he has his healthcare.”

I have often said that is the motto of rich powerful Republicans, ‘F’ck U! I got mine!’


Should I puke now or later?

Deets from the Romney circle-jerk this past weekend;

If you’re like  most of America, maybe you spent this summer weekend barbecuing.  Not super-rich Republican donors, conservative thinkers and GOP elective officials. They were in beautiful Park City, Utah, where presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney hosted a fundraiser / policy brainstorming session / salon for everybody who is anybody in the Republican party.

I wonder if Ironic Johnny Thune-Bag was asked to flip burgers like he did in Murdo as a teenager?
