The Liar of the Week Club...
It is a pretty good racket and may even be a genuine innovation. The big Liberals in the Democratic Party have learned to take turns... and even to co-ordinate their "individual" sellouts. One pulls a dastardly deed to the "shock" of their "progressive" supporters, but before even the proper outrage can be mobilized, the very next week brings an entirely new Liberal on an entirely different subject.
Before long, the individual outrage against each is lost in the outrage parade. It is the equivilant of introducing goldfish memory to the political realm and as always, the Senate leads.
This week it was the Oregon Patoot, Ron Wyden, who climbed onto the privatize Medicare bandwagon with Republican crypto-fascist, Paul Ryan. Instantly, he took center-stage on the progressive treason podium, denying the obligatory "15 minutes of fame" to the Michigan Maggot, Carl Levin. Only the week before, Levin had pushed through the indefinite detention of "suspects", through the suddenly bipartisan Senate.
Only a few weeks before that, it was Barbara Boxer. Before that, Sheldon Whitehouse... Al Franken... Claire McCaskill... Sherrod Brown... each engaged in individual liberal transgressions both big and small. What were their issues, again?
"I think Myown Feinstein was an incomparable foul-dog on somethin', but I forget what..."
"Barely Sanders hasn't sold us out since the Health Care debate, has he? He is a true progressive..."
It sure beats the extended attention that Chris Fraud and Barnyard Frank got for talking populist smack for decades, only to instantly sell-out when given control of their respective banking committees.
Meanwhile, what has emerged as the house organs of the Republican and Democratic Parties, Fox and MSNBC, each with its trailing entourage of newspapers and blogs, continue to escalate their electoral noise as if there were not now daily proof that there isn't a dragonfly wing's thickness of distance between the two political parties.
The other news this week was that half of America is now "poor".
Well, that's great news. It proves the correctness of the program of the DemoRepubCratLican Party and gives us an edge in the next election.
The political crisis deepens and you can't even track the foul dogs without reference to the Daily Racing Form.
This ain't charade anymore... this is farce.
