Poison Pero is RIGHT!

Rep. Jim Moran (D - Virginia)

“It [the Republican successes in the 2010 elections] happened for the same reason the Civil War happened in the United States. It happened because the Southern states, the slaveholding states, didn’t want to see a president who was opposed to slavery.  In this case, I believe, a lot of people in the United States don’t want to be governed by an African-American, particularly one who is liberal, who wants to spend money and who wants to reach out to include everyone in our society.”

How does this "Southern" theory explain the massive gains Republicans made in Pennsylvania, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, Minnesota, New Hampshire, Maine, Connecticut, North Dakota?  Maybe Canada considers these "southern", but they are hardly "southern" in the United States.  Feel free to check on these gains if you don't believe me:  Before the election , After the election

Moran is a complete moron, and if he was even a little honest he'd admit the "Southern states" were hardly the reason for the huge Republican gains in the 2010 Election.  Also, if he was a little more honest he'd admit race was hardly the reason for the huge Republicans gains in the 2010 Election...But he did hit on the one variable which did account for the huge Republican gains in the 2010 Election:  LIBERALISM!

From 2008-2010 the country witnessed what Liberals without restraint were truly about...AND WE DIDN'T LIKE WHAT WE SAW!

This was the reason for Republican success in the 2010 Election, and it had much less to do with liking Republicans than it had to do with disliking Liberals.

Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D - Ohio)

"Said sandwich wrap was unwholesome and unfit for human consumption in that it was presented to contain pitted olives, yet unknown to plaintiff, contained an unpitted olive or olives which plaintiff did not reasonably expect to be in the food prepared for him, and could not visually detect prior to consumption...[the sandwich] contained dangerous substances, namely an olive pit, that a consumer would not reasonably expect to find in the final product served."

- Statement in a legal document filed in a lawsuit against a food supplier for a U.S. House of Representatives cafeteria.

Poor 'Dennis the F'n Menace'; he injured his poor little teeth on a poorly made sandwich.

So, what does this frivolous-lawsuit-filing-POS expect to gain due to the egregious infraction committed by this cafeteria supplier (an accidentally unpitted olive in his sandwich)?  $150,000, as well as "future dental and medical expenses and to compensate him for pain, suffering, and loss of enjoyment." - Sabrina Easton

What a joke.  The even bigger joke is as a member of Congress he has one of the finest medical/dental plans in the country and should have no problem taking care of his teeth.

That said, if he was a true Liberal (as he claims to be), he would forgo the congressional medical/dental plan and take up the garbage offered in ObamaCare.  I'm sure he'd be extremely happy with the results...I'm even more sure there is no way in hell he'd ever make such a stupid choice.

President Barack Obama (State of the Union Address)

"Blah, blah, blah.  Blah, blah, blah, blah.  Blah, blah, blah..."

- Entire text of the speech.

To be fair, the above is the extent of every State of the Union Address, from every president, in my lifetime...Obama just makes it sound prettier than most.

My favorite part is Obama referencing this as "our generation's Sputnik moment."

First, I'm willing to bet at least 50% of the morons who voted for Obama have no idea what Sputnik is...Second, Obama is the president who has more or less killed off NASA's space exploration programs.

Sadly, I'm betting many of the same morons who voted for Obama have no idea what NASA is or how it relates to Sputnik...Which is why Obama has well over a 50% chance of giving State of the Union Addresses for the next five years.

Keith Olbermann (Former MSNBC Host)

"This will be the last edition of 'Countdown.'"
- Announcing he'd been fired by MSNBC.
Hehehehe!  Couldn't happen to a better guy...Don't let the door hit ya in the ass, buddy!
That's all.

Majority Leader Harry Reid (D - Searchlight)

"I am going to go back to Washington tomorrow and meet the president of China.  He is a dictator...Maybe I shouldn't have said dictator, but they have a different type of government than we have and that's an understatement."

Harry's correct, China is a dictatorship, though President Hu isn't it's dictator; the Communist Party is...As such, I have to admit Harry's comment isn't a Liberal quote.

Calling Hu a "dictator" during his state visit is most definitely a Jackass quote, however..."and that's an understatement."

The President of the United States is begging China to play nice (quit hurting the dollar, quit making its people disappear, quit helping North Korea and Iran - keep buying American debt - etc., etc.) and the last thing he needs is the Senate Majority Leader to publicly embarrass his guest...I guess this is what we get for having a public embarrassment for a Senate Majority Leader, though.

Donny Deutsch (MSNBC Windbag - Among Other Bags)

"We're in the year 2011, we're coming off the horrific, horrific event in Tucson, yet as we celebrate Dr. King's day there's still this very strange state, Arizona, that does not recognize it...Should they secede from the nation?"

"It" = Martin Luther King Day.

Hey Deutsch-bag, get your facts straight.  Arizona does recognize MLK Day.  It's a state holiday with all the public institutions being closed, and there is a parade...Guess what else Deutsch-bag?  "This very strange state, Arizona," is the only state in the entire nation whose citizens voted to enact MLK Day.

No need to get stuck on the truth over at MSNBC, however.

Sheriff Clarence Dupnick (Pima County, AZ)

"It used to be that politicians from different parties could sit down, forget about their ideology, and work on the country's problems.  We don't see that happening today.  As a matter of fact, we see exactly the opposite.  We see one party trying to block the attempts of another party to make this a better country."

It's a big assumption to think the Democrats are doing anything to make this country better.  The American people in general don't seem to be buying it...That's not what caught my eye about this quote, however.

More than anything 'Dipstick' Dupnick has a complete lack of historical perspective and reality, because politics has always been contentious:  In the early 1800's U.S. Vice President Aaron Burr killed U.S. Treasury Secretary Alexander Hamilton in a duel.  In the mid-1800's the Civil War was all about politics...These are just two of the better known and deadly cases.  Also, world politics (international and domestic in individual countries) is nasty stuff; a lot worse than anything we've seen in the U.S. since the Civil War.

Going forward I want to make sure those who follow my blog are educated enough to deal with reality, so let's set something straight, and get away from modern-day Liberal mythology:  Politics isn't about playing nice, politics is about power; government politics is about determining who will run the country...And please don't think for one minute Democrats don't know this.  They know it better than anyone, they just don't want anyone else to know it.

For proof of my statement about Democrats fully understanding political power one only has to look at the years 2008-2010, where they dominated American politics.  They used their power as forcefully and effectively (from a Liberal point of view) as any party ever has...They were the masters of the jam-down, and honestly left me jealous of their determination and political ability compared to their Republican counterparts who held similar power, but didn't know how to use it, from 2002-2006.

Carl von Clausewitz is famous for his commentary on politics:  "War is the continuation of Politics by other means."

But he had it backwards, because war came long before politics, and the Clausewitz/Pero Corollary is actually more appropriate:  "Politics is the continuation of War by other means." - Poison Pero

Either way, both are about power, and determining who wields this power...Politics is determining who rules without shooting at each other, which makes it much more civilized than war, but it is farcical for anyone to assume, or even hope, that politics is, ever will be, or ever has been civil.

I'm sure this makes me a huge radical, however...Probably #1 on 'Big Sis' NapoliReno's domestic terror watch-list.  Oh well, I guess it's a good way to start my New Year on this blog.
