What with Elizabeth Warren’s new book out, and her promotional tour in full swing, everyone is talking about whether she’s really going to run for President or not (she says she’s not, but, that’s how the game is played at this stage). There is a lot of talk about whether there would be support for a two-woman Democratic ticket (Clinton/Warren). Get real – is this any less credible than a two-man ticket? Does anyone really think that anyone who has a problem with a two-woman ticket is likely to be voting Democratic ticket anyway? Warren as VP can only help Clinton as far as I’m concerned. It would give her some real credibility with progressives that she lacks (though she’s certainly more progressive than Obama).

There’s always next year!
We now return you to your regularly scheduled four years of irrelevancy, already in progress.
In general, what she’s saying is what one of our founding fathers said long ago:
”All accumulation of personal property, beyond what a man’s own hands produce, is derived to him by living in society; and he owes on every principle of justice, of gratitude, and of civilization, a part of that accumulation back again to society from whence the whole came.”
– Thomas Paine (author of Common Sense)
Oompa Loompa Doompadee Doo,
I’ve got a perfect soundbite for you.
Oompa Loompa, Doompadah Dee,
If you’re brainwashed you’ll listen to me.
What do you get when you vote GOP?
Let the debt grow, the Elephants eat free.
What are you at, talking about a VAT?
Who do you think will vote for that?
I don’t like the look of it.
Oompa Loompa doompadee dah,
If you’re real greedy, you will go far.
You will live in luxury, too,
Like the oompa loompa doompadee do.
Hey, at least both of the above people are less scary than this one:
Reports have been confirmed that the Republican Party is actually attempting to create zombies, so as to take over the United States, and have even released some of these creatures on the unsuspecting populace!
There are already three different test cases that have been released into the populace: teabaggers, birthers and deathers.
In all cases, mental activity is absolutely zero, yet they keep moving around, menacing the living, going after anyone who looks like they have a brain. The teabagger test case flamed out fairly quickly, the birthers took quit a bit longer, and the deathers are still going.
As a fundraising effort, there’s even a new computer game coming out, an unauthorized sequel to the Left 4 Dead franchise, to be called ‘Jingos 4 Jesus’. I can’t wait!
President Obama’s “Cap and Trade” initiative to reduce CO2 is being stripped down to a level that is of vastly smaller benefit that intially proposed. What’s most odd about this is that, according to the Daily Show’s Jon Stewart (on the July 21st, 2009 episode), the politicians watering down the bill are not Republicans, but fellow Democrats!
Secret Treaties = Secret Laws = EPIC FAIL.
All this over a freaking _TRADE AGREEMENT_?! C’mon!
Obama = Bush Light? *sigh*
