The Tattlesnake – Throw Them All Under the Bus Edition

This, That and Other Scat

– “Throw under the bus”: Isn’t it time to throw this exhausted Mediocracy line under the bus and back over it a few times for good measure?

– The country’s deeply in the debt and borrowing money to keep afloat, our economy’s ‘under the bus,’ and our military is near the breaking point, yet I didn’t hear McCain asked even one question regarding how he intends to pay for his endless war in Iraq, nor how he plans to find fresh bodies to sacrifice to his vague idea of victory over there.

– Will Tonya Harding object to her tactics of ‘knee-capping’ Nancy Kerrigan being compared to Hillary Clinton’s going negative against Obama? I can hear Tonya now, “I’m voting for that McCainey guy – I don’t truck with them pinko liberal commies like Clinton.” (Side note: Will Hillary be appearing on “Celebrity Boxing” in a few years?)

– Speaking of Hillary, what could she be thinking by proposing to alleviate the housing crisis by dragging in Robert Rubin and Alan Greenspan to fix it? Rubin is the ultimate Wall Street insider and rinky-dink deals by his Big Money cronies caused the crisis in the first place while Greenspan’s fetid policies as Fed chief set the stage for the economic disaster we’re wallowing in now. Would a President Hillary invite McCain and Cheney in to help her during a Middle East crisis?

– Hey, Jimmy Jeff Carville – want to talk about traitors? How about a Democratic Party presidential candidate who praises Republican John McCain over her Dem rival?

– Neocon Smear Pick ‘n’ Choose: Obama is either a) a crazy Christian who hates America; b) a crazy Muslim who hates America; c) a crazy Black Panther who hates America; or, d) a crazy atheist who hates America — take your pick! Whatever. At least they can all agree that he’s crazy and hates America. Now if they can only get him to stop making speeches that might convince voters of the contrary. (BTW, his wife Michelle is a Black Nationalist who also hates America, so don’t forget that.)

– Cynic’s Corner: Mr. Cynic says it’s in the tank, Hillary Clinton will get the Dem nomination, and it doesn’t matter to the Corprocracy whether McCain or Clinton are elected, either one will do what they are told. Unless there isn’t another election because President Junior declares martial law after another 9/11-style attack. Since Bush doesn’t have the troops to enforce martial law, unless he pulls them out of Iraq and Afghanistan – and he’ll never do that — he will have to use either Blackwater private contractors or the Chinese Army to enforce his decree. Of course, if Blackwater or China were providing the muscle, there would be no reason to keep the incompetent Dim Son around, so hello to Emperor Dick the First. Just for perspective, Mr. Cynic has been saying Bush the Younger will declare martial law before every election since 2002.


  1. I remember watching celebrity boxing a few years ago with Tonya Harding vs. Paula Jones. Paula didn’t realize that ex-Olympic athletes are usually in pretty good shape and know how to train for an event. Tonya opened a whole six-pack of ass whipping on her.

  2. I never said that Barack or his family hates America.

    But it’s pretty obvious that his spiritual leader holds the country — and race relations — in pretty low regard.

  3. I always felt sorry for Tanya, knowing her background and especially after several media exposures of her “mama from hell”! I never really believed that she knew anything about the planned attack until after the fact and she just did not have the upbringing to know what to do about it after she found out, feeling that her loyalty was to her husband and his friend. Her crime if you watched the whole proceedings of trial by media was not that she knew or was involved in the attack but that she lied about knowing afterward. No one ever seemed to make that distinction.

    My opinion is that Tanya got a lifetime sentence while about that time a man killed his wife and got 6 months in the funny farm and come out smiling and laughing and giving the victory sign.

  4. “I never said that Barack or his family hates America.”

    Peregrin, I never said you did, but the nutty right-wingers sure are. As far as Jerry Wright, most of what he said has appeared here on Bartcop is some form or another — the CIA connection to crack in black neighborhoods; rich, white elites running the show for their own benefit; our covert manipulation of governments in the Middle East and inventing Al Qaeda to get the Russkies out of Afghanistan. All Wright was saying was ‘God damn America’ — meaning the US government and the Power Elite, not the people — for doing these deplorable things.

    BTW, I’ve heard ex-Marines who were in Vietnam — black, white and Latino — say basically the same things about the people who sent them over there on a fool’s mission. I think many Americans, reading Wright’s remarks in full, would agree with most of them.
