How stupid are Republicans?
The right-wing morons in Georgia are now threatening to impeach their Attorney General…
Because he refuses to waste the state’s money on filing a frivolous lawsuit against the Health Care Reform Bill.
Considering that such lawsuits have only about a .005% chance of succeeding – even in a stacked SCOTUS whose 5 member majority puts politics and ideology over the welfare of the country and the Constitution, and the fact that most states are cutting back on everything from schools to policing due to budget shortfalls…
You have to ask if the bozos who are joining in the Lawsuits to attempt to overturn the Law shouldn’t be charged with criminal malfeasance.

Further evidence that acting “civilized” and “bipartisan” is a waste of time with Rethuglys in the Senate -
After Threat, Obama Gets His Nominees
The president said in a statement Thursday evening that he is encouraged by confirmation earlier in the day of 27 high-level nominees and will not need to make recess appointments — for now.
President Barack Obama dropped his threat to bypass the Senate and install nominees to their positions through recess appointments — at least for now.
Recess appointments can be made while the Senate is out of session and are a way for presidents to get around the need for a confirmation vote. The president said in a statement Thursday evening that he is encouraged by confirmation earlier in the day of 27 high-level nominees.
On Tuesday, Obama threatened to make the recess appointments to get around senators who had placed “holds” on his nominees, which prevent, or at least delay, the Senate from moving forward with nominations. By the White House’s count, at the start of the week, 63 nominees had been stalled with holds.
At a meeting with top congressional leaders on Tuesday, Obama told Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell that he would use his recess appointment power if Republican senators did not release their holds.
“Many holds were motivated by a desire to leverage projects for a Senator’s state or simply to frustrate progress,” the president said in a statement Thursday evening. “It is precisely these kinds of tactics that enrage the American people.”
Since then, the president said he was gratified that Republicans released their holds and allowed 29 nominees to receive votes. Nominees confirmed on Thursday include appointees to the Treasury Department, Pentagon, Health and Human Services and Justice Department, among others.
“While this is a good first step, there are still dozens of nominees on hold who deserve a similar vote, and I will be looking for action from the Senate when it returns from recess,” Obama said. “If they do not act, I reserve the right to use my recess appointment authority in the future.”
This calls for a little celebratory Gap Band!

One Republican Senator was able to hold up the nomination of 65 of President Obama’s nominations…
112 Bills before the Senate are currently being filibustered by Republicans.
Maddow is on a roll, exposing Rethugly Terrorism.
None dare call it Treason…
But they should.

The chickenshit Dumbocrats gave the Rethuglys yet another victory yesterday – chickening out on what was a very important fight.
Rethuglys only care about winning political points…
And don’t give a damn how many Americans die as a result.

Republican solution to solving Terrorism?
Use the word more often in your speeches, President Obama!
That’s right – President Obama is soft on Terrorism…
Because unlike the Bushit, he doesn’t use it as a sound byte 30 times in every speech.
Now these are the same folks who have hijacked and blockaded Health Care Reform, blocked the appointment of a new head of the Transportation Security Administration, and whose wanking their weenies to the war drum on Iraq provided better “service” to Al Quaeda and the Taliban…
Than a Republican Senator on his knees under the desk of a Health Insurance Executive.

Hey Al Quaeda! Why don’t you kidnap the Mayor’s daughter?
I’ve always been of the belief that there should be a qualifications test to hold office. You have to take a driving test to prove you can drive safely…
Why shouldn’t Congressmen be required to take an IQ test to prove they can drive the country?
