Well, well, well, the world didn't end on Saturday after all, but while we all woke up disappointed to a beautiful new Sunday morning, there's still hope if you are a Republican Congressman in The USA.
Behold, the writing appears on the wall and one by one the mighty shaketh in their cordovans and findeth that verily, their deodorant doesn't seem to performing as advertised.
This week, the righteous Senators will vote on Paul Ryans apocalyptic budget forcing them to take a stand on destroying Medicare. Things are not looking good...
The shudda been easy win in New Yorks 26th District Special Election tomorrow doesn't look good for them at all and if Democrat Kathy Hochul wins this traditionally Republican bastion, it will be an epic disaster, a foreshadowing of how Republican Congressmen will be haunted by their vote to end Medicare.
There have been signs, portents and omens in the sky for weeks now, the polls are showing the Ryan budget as being as unpopular as Obama's Health Care Reform Bill at the nadir of it's unpopularity. The Congressional staffers are warning their bosses that "You might not want to go there" in a series of pre vote meetings.
Newt Gingrich was forced to demonstrate his amazing talent of spinning like a fat angel on the head of Rush Limbaughs pin...He liked it, then he didn't like it, now he didn't really mean to say that he didn't like in fact, he didn't say anything like that at all and if he did, well it's the liberal media's fault...whew!
That was some fancy dancin' Newt!
In Arizona, in a supposedly friendly meeting at the Fellowship Church in Anthem Arizona, the audience turned on Rep. Ben Quayle protesting the Ryan Medicare cuts.
In Las Vegas, last week, The Heck Town Hall Meeting turned ugly as his Rep. Joe Heck was confronted by his constituents shouting their protests and fighting with each other.
Paul Ryan, the author of the budget plan was confronted in Chicago by protesters carrying "Tax The Rich!"sign outside of his hotel when he was scheduled to give a speech on the plan.
Freshman Rep. Cravaack was forced to respond at a town meeting in Minneapolis and was called a liar and forced to admit that the information on the power point slides he was showing was inaccurate.
Meanwhile, MA Senator Scott Brown has completed his flip flop. He now has officially come out against the Ryan Plan. At first for it, now definitely agin' it...just bendin' with the polls, eh Senator?
Even Mitch McConnell was forced to react to the attack ad showing a Ryan look alike pushing granny off the cliff in her wheelchair. "Let's just stipulate that nobody is trying to throw grandma off the cliff" he said on FOX News Sunday.
It's not that easy any more, Mr McConnell, if you really don't want to throw granny off the cliff, then you will have to come out and vote against the Ryan budget plan.
The wolf bays in the distance at the spinning moon. The stars are unfixed in the sky. The elephant crows like a rooster as a party now dominated by extreme, nutty ideologues finds it self in a lose-lose situation, in a wheel chair with out brakes, on a course of their own making as it heads over the cliff, into their apocalypse.....
