A Politician Who French-Kisses the Patriot Act Didn’t Get Elected. Oh Dear, Dear, Dear.

How can I possibly get my dander up about the election of a Homeland Security Democrat on a day when Patriot Act procedures turned out to have been used by the government in an illegal web of lies to spy on journalists?

Yeah, yeah, I know. You don’t care about that. You’d rather talk about Ameros, or Barack Obama’s Nigerian passport, or the Sasquatch, or some celebrity’s nipple slip. So fine. Here’s a drawing of a nipple:

It’s from the side, if you’re wondering. Go ahead, take another look. Now tell me why I should be crying a puddle of tears about Martha Coakley’s loss. Two years and Brown can be voted out. If Coakley had gotten in, she’d have been promoting the Homeland uber alles for a generation.

Bonus point for the first one with the gumption to assert that now health care reform will never pass, and it’s all this election’s fault. I mean, never mind the other 40-odd seats, right?

    Not that anyone gives a shit what i’m thinking, but now we progressives have another Rethugligoon tea-partier with racist, elitist, corpratist and probably sexist ideas of governance to put up with for yet another two years. Swell.

    i’m thinking health care will still pass, only in an even worse form, thanks to another tea partier with racist, elitist, corporate and definitely sexist ideas( he’s a republican, duh, even the republican women have sexist ideas). no need to worry though, tom, within that two years our new buddy will probably have some kind of sex scandal to occupy his campaign agenda.

    I didn’t think sex would be a scandal from the progressive point of view.

  • ramone

    good point. it would be scandalous if he weren’t having sex and political fodder if he got caught at it.
