20 December 2009: Republicans all over TV, lying

Republicans are all over Sunday morning TV pissing and moaning about the Senate health care bill.

One of their main lies is that President Obama promised to change the way Washington does business but, instead, this bill has passed because of "back-door deals."

Let's remind our Republican friends of some inconvenient facts:

-- President Obama reached out to Republicans. He went out of his way to invite Republican Congressional leaders to the White House. He went to the Capitol time and again to meet with Republican and Democratic leaders.

-- And what did the Republicans do in return to Obama's extended hand?

"This will be his Waterloo!!" Senator Jim DeMint, R, SC

Quoting every single Republican in the House and the Senate:
" NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!!

NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! "

Enough said.


Sarah Palin's book tour is like the rest of her life: Phony bullshit

The Old Redneck probably is violating every copyright law ever put on the books, but, here goes.

You need to go to this link and read the full article by Joe McGinnis at his blog, the Daily Beast:
http://www.thedailybeast.com/blogs-and-stories/2009-11-29/palins-bus-hoax/full/


Here are the first two paragraphs -- it gets a lot better.

-- quote

On her book tour, Sarah Barracuda pretends to be one of the people. But she's really winging across the country on a private jet.

As much of her entourage, including HarperCollins publicist Tina Andreadis, risked a collective case of White Line Fever, covering more than 3,000 road miles during the book tour’s first week, Sarah Palin herself seems to have remained above it all, apparently cosseted in the luxury of a Gulfstream II 12-passenger jet rented from Universal Jet Aviation of Boca Raton, Florida, at a cost of more than $4,000 per hour.

-- end quote

Why am I not surprised -- not surprised at Palin's phony bus tour and not surprised that the Palinators are eating it up.
