Hello, House of Teatards!
Orange you glad a sniveling, drunken, intellectual-lightweight, hyperbowlic ne’er-do-well like John Boehner will preside over the newest parliament of idiots? Who better!
Though my prayer is Batshit Crazy Bachmann fights Boehner for the position…because really? What could be more entertaining than a moron death match? And we’ll finally learn whether or not it’s true that Boehner bleeds tangerine.
On the bright side, the very bright side, the fake Democrats known as Blue Dogs are half annihilated. Read ’em, and weep for joy:
Mike Arcuri (NY), Allen Boyd (FL), Bobby Bright (AL), Christopher Carney (PA), Travis Childers (MS), Kathy Dahlkemper (PA), Lincoln Davis (TN), Stephanie Herseth-Sandlin (SD), Baron Hill (IN), Frank Kratovil (MD), Betsy Markey (CO), Jim Marshall (GA), Walt Minnick (ID), Harry Mitchell (AZ), Dennis Moore (KS), Patrick Murphy (PA), Scott Murphy (NY), Glenn Nye (VA), Earl Pomeroy (ND), John Salazar (CO), Zack Space (OH), Gene Taylor (MS), and Charles Wilson (OH).

Half the caucus lost.
These are the mother fuckers who gummed up the gears of legislation crippling the 111th Congress, the mother fuckers who along with Republicans pretend they love “small businesses” which are not actually small businesses. Businesses like:
- Enterprise Products Partners, L.P., a pipeline company with 2009 revenues of $25 billion.
- Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co., a Wall Street firm with $445 million in revenue in 2009.
- Price Waterhouse Coopers, an accounting firm with $26 billion in revenue in 2009.
- Koch Industries, a conglomerate of partnerships with 70,000 employees.
- The Hillman Company, an investment founded by billionaire philanthropist/industrialist Henry Hillman.
- Venn Strategies, Inc., whose chief operating officer is Brian Reardon, a former special assistant to former President George W. Bush.
- Ferrellgas, a propane and propane accessories business, with $2 billion in revenues in 2009 and 1 million customers.
- CoorsTek, a ceramics manufacturer founded by Adolph Coors, with 2009 revenue of $549 million.
- Dead River Co., with $500 million in revenue and 1,200 employees.
- McIlhenney Co., the Tabasco maker, with $250 million in revenue in 2007.
Did you think Blue Dogs and Republicans were talking about you, Mom and Pop, with your piddly hundreds of thousands of dollars a year or me with my tens of hundreds with my small business?
A business owner who claims company profit as his income is legally considered a “small business” no matter how many billions or hundreds of millions the company takes in.
Remember that when the teatards talk of extending Bush tax cuts. The Bush tax cuts affect 3% of so-called small businesses, and there’s about a 97% chance those bitches aren’t talking about you and yours when they give lip service to small business.
And guess what? The new King of Teatards John Boehner knows it, acknowledging a couple of months ago that a nonpartisan Joint Committee on Taxation found that 3 percent of small-business people would be impacted if Bush tax cuts for the rich would expire. Three percent of “small business” make HALF the money.
Good riddance, Blue Dogs. Hello, Insani-tea!
