Apparently, once again I have to help the Democrats figure out how to club the shit out of the fucking Republicans.
OK, listen up, Congressional Democrats, I’m only going to say this once. Even after nearly seven years of having your metaphorical lunch money figuratively stolen by Dick Cheney and Co. (a wholly-owned subsidiary of Rove Industries), you still haven’t gotten the fucking message. Your political opponents are NOT nice people who are merely a little confused on the issues. They’re fucking scumbags who are willing to send other people’s sons and daughters to fight and die in a Godforsaken sandpile in the Official Middle of Nowhere.
You Dems aren’t even playing the same game as the GOP. You’re playing horseshoes while they’re playing hand grenades.
THEY DON’T GIVE A SHIT ABOUT REASON, THEY DON’T GIVE A SHIT ABOUT YOUR SUBPOENAS…THEY DON’T EVEN CARE ABOUT PUBLIC OPINION ANYMORE!
Here’s how to handle them. Every single thing any of them touches in the course of their working day belongs to the government of the United States of America, which means the people of the U.S. Every office, every desk IN every office and every phone on those desks belongs to US. All you have to do is reallocate those resources, as you have every right to.
Send men to the West Wing of the White House, accompanies by armed guards, to literally pick up and remove the desks, phones, chairs, EVERYTHING from their fucking offices. Remember that “man-sized safe” supposedly in Cheney’s office? Send some broadbacked guys over to his office with some hand trucks and have them carry the fucking thing out to a truck and drive it up to Capitol Hill. Leave nothing behind but a card table and a desk lamp.
I’m absolutely serious about this. Not one single thing in those offices belongs to the current occupant. The Bush administration is NOT going to respond to what reasonable public officeholders would. It’s time to Think Outside The Box, as they say. Strip these people of the trappings of the offices they love so much. Turn Bush into a figurehead by taking away even the ballpoint pens he signs his illegal “signing statements” with. You want a Constitutional Crisis, Fuckhead-in-Chief? No problem. To quote you, “Bring it on!”
