Oh you insinuate ‘Asshole’ is a bad thing- not always esp when dealing with the shit on capitol hill. Far better to the controlling muscle than the waste….Horse Apples.
What Drugs or procedures do the Repugs perform on their followers, like Hannity,Beck, BillO and Rush. It is amazing the lack of insight and intellect of the shrills of right wing ideology.
Funniest is when they twist themselves up in some convoluted ‘logic’ to the point they are oblivious to the fact they’ve just proven our point.
I was discussing The TX Gov’s call for Succession and Bachmanns ‘Armed & Dangerous’ and my 75 yrs old staunch Republican mothers gasped and said ‘That’s Treason’. I nealry pissed my pants when Mr.‘I’m the Greatest Patriot’ Limbaugh went after the navy seals who saved our Captains ass from those pirates. That had to go over well with the military families.
Truely if it wouldn’t increase their ratings- I would be inclined to tune in- kind of like rubber necking at a crash site, but with elemnt Humor instead of morbid curiosity. Although there is some loud and distinct Death rales coming from the Right, so perhaps it is kinda morbid.

When one sees the comparisons between the political views of an obnoxious and intellectually impaired Sean Hannity and the witty, urbane and only slightly eccentric Colbert ones path seems clear.

Support rationality and condemn imbecility!
