I repeat myself:

Max Baucus surreal

I don’t mind sending Max “Single Payer” Baucus to China. It’s the return trip I object to:

President Barack Obama formally announced Friday plans to nominate Sen. Max Baucus (D-MT) as ambassador to China.

“For more than two decades Max Baucus has worked to deepen the relationship between the United States and China,” Obama said in a statement Friday morning. “The economic agreements he helped forge have created millions of American jobs and added billions of dollars to our economy, and he’s perfectly suited to build on that progress in his new role.”

“I’m sure that our enemies are cheering now as a result of this decision.”

Former Senator –Traitor Joe, on Fox News (of course) talking about The Kenyan’s decision to seek Congressional approval instead of just attacking Syria. Traitor Joe is now a practicing attorney and frequently whispered candidate to replace Janet Napolitano at the Department of Homeland Security.

One down… 99 to go

Ben Nelson announces his retirement.

“Public office is a place for public service, not personal profit. It’s about promoting the common good, not the agenda of the radical right or the radical left. It’s about fairness for all, not privileges for the few. And, it’s about protecting the rights of individuals, even if it angers the majority. I hope and believe I have fulfilled these principles to the best of my ability.”

To which I can only reply, “Thanks for the finger-f***, Superman.”

“And you believed me?!”

Chimpy and the banner

Curveball tells us he made up all the stuff about WMDs that lead to the invasion of Iraq, deaths of so many hundreds/thousands/millions of people and the bankruptcy of the United States:

“Maybe I was right, maybe I was not right,” he said. “They gave me this chance. I had the chance to fabricate something to topple the regime. I and my sons are proud of that and we are proud that we were the reason to give Iraq the margin of democracy.”

Of course, the only people who believed him were those looking for a reason to do this, anyway. “And an idiot shall lead them.”
