For a truly compassionate conservative, there are always mixed feelings about seeing a tyrannical despot's brains being splattered.
Of course, we're not referring to the bullet-punctured noggin of Muammar Gaddafy Gaddafi Gadhafi Qaddafi who, after "months, not days," can go straight to Hell if only because we're sick of trying to spell his last name. No, we're referring to Harry Reid and Joe Biden, whose brains are not only splattered but may be missing altogether.
Majority Leader Reid, when encouraging the Senate to spend another $35 billion on government jobs, claimed that such jobs are where the real urgency is in this economy because "it's very clear that private-sector jobs have been doing just fine." Really?! Because the private sector has lost 2.5 million jobs since 2008... while the number of well-paid federal employees has gone up by 253,000 in the same time.
But for statements of sheer jaw-dropping stupidity, it's always going to be hard to beat Joe Biden - and this week he certainly didn't let us down. After being criticized for saying that there will be more murders and rapes unless Obama's Jobs Act is passed, the vice president doubled down and angrily said of stimulus critics "I wish they had some notion of what it was like to be on the other side of a gun, or [to have] a 200-pound man standing over you, telling you to submit.” (Note: As of press time, Monica Lewinsky could not be reached for comment)
Frankly, with this kind of idiocy coming at us day after day, it's no surprise that Hope n' Change feels exhausted by the end of the week.
And that our former spirit of TGIF seems to have been replaced by a heaping helping of STFU.
