Douche #10: Glen Beck is a traitorous Douche who hates our country

Hey Kids,

So that Glen Beck, the drunk, racist and unpatriotic white fuck who cries about his ass-pains, had a brilliant idea the other day.  He openly stated on his F$%#ed News Channel show that he wanted California to be kicked out of the Union.  Why?   Because we well, dis-agree with his facist ideas.  You know... we care about our environment, respect others, etc.  

Crooks and Liars has the video if you can stomach it, but here's a transcript.

Beck: OK, there's something driving me to the edge of insanity, makes blood shoot right out my eyes, and that is California.

California today, they voted against offshore drilling. Not on their land, or their shore, no. They also voted last week to raise emissions standards because it's too smoggy there and they care about the trees. Also, uh, in the stimulus, we found out today, it appears as though Hollywood can get a, um, bailout, from you and me, because nobody's going to see their movies. Hmmph! You'd think maybe they should just make better movies, and then we'd all go. But no no, let's bail them all out.

The Civil War taught us that, apparently, U.S. states can't secede from the Union. I'd like to test that one again maybe sometime. But what I'd like to know is if the Union has the right to kick out states. Because if so, I'd like to take a star right out of our flag, and California is it.

He goes on to cut out slices from a cake shaped like the US, aiming at  the states he doesn't like (while making a crack calling his camera man fat... have you seen your ass lately Beck). 

Listen Beck, you're an ass.  A fucking little insignifciant asshole.

Do the Republicans REALLY have a leg to stand on?

Hey All,

Go over and check out this post on the Existentialist Cowboy. It is a great extention of a topic of one my earlier posts.

Senate goppers oppose what may be a last chance to save the US from the Bush/Reagan legacy of idiocy. GOP opposition to Obama's stimulus bill has lambasted a 'debt' that they say will be inherited by future generations.

Pinch me!

I did
not hear those arguments when Ronald Reagan tripled the national debt and doubled the Federal Bureaucracy. I did not hear those arguments when Reagan's tax cut was followed quickly by a depression of some two years --the worst, longest and deepest since Herbert Hoover's Great Depression of 1929.

: So it appears that not only are the House Republicans throwing stones while living in a glass house, but they're fucking CELEBRATING their obstructionism.

From AmericaBlog:

This says so much about the culture in Washington. You'd like to think that members of Congress are looking out for the nation's good and the well being of their constituents. The Republicans sure aren't. Based on several news reports, it's clear the House Republicans are reveling in the united opposition to the economic recovery package.

This must seem bizarre to most people, especially those who are struggling and have lost their jobs or homes (or both). Everyone seems concerned as the economy continues to tank. Yet, the Republicans are having a party because they all voted against saving the economy. Wow.

Dick Alert: Dick Armey (With an added Douche Bomb!)

Hey Kids,

Is it just me or is the sexist, racist, eltist colors of the neo-conservative movement being revealed with each passing day of the Obama Administration?  We've already talked about Rush Hudson Limbaugh III, but even low level hacks are letting all pretense of decency fall to the way-side.  

Case in point.  Ex-Representative Dick Armey's display of blatant sexist taunts on yesterday's Hardball.  You see, Dick was debating Joan Walsh from Salon about the stimulus package.  As soon as Joan was cleaning the floor with him, Dick jumped in with this doozey:

Armey: Oh, give it a rest.

Walsh: President Obama, please stop saying 'give it a rest.' Do you have any anything else to say? President Obama has a mandate for change. (Armey laughs again) Your people have stood in his way. They are standing in his way in Capitol hill right now and Rush Limbaugh is making ridiculous statements and Republicans are crawling to him and groveling. That's the state of our economy and our world right now Rep. Armey and it's sad.

Armey: I'm so glad that you could never be my wife because I surely wouldn't have to listen to that prattle from you every day.

Walsh: Well, wow that makes two of us sir, that was really an outstanding comment...

Look ma'am, you're talking like a paid political hack making your political points.

There you have it.  What a way to make your point than by being a douche!  Straight out of a Mad Men episode. 

Well kids, Mr. Armey has his own poltical aciton group called Freedom Works.   There's a comment site on the Freedom Works website to let Dick know what you feel.   So it is with great pleasure that I introduce a Douche Bomb! 

For those of you willing to participate, here's what you do.  Go to Dick's contact page at Freedom Watch here.   Then let him know precisely that he's a douche.  Like so.
Dear Dick,

You're behavior on last night's Hardball (versus Joan Walsh) shows just what kind of a douchbag you really are.

--An anti-Douche
Yes... it's just THAT easy.  Of course, feel free to be more crude if you wish.  It's time to start letting Dicks/Douches of the world know what we think of them.  Enjoy kiddos!

Douche(s) #9: House Republicans

Hey Kids,

Remember when the GOP were controlling the playground and it was "my way or the highway!" If Democrats even spoke their opinions, the pundit class would hound them as being "traitors" who don't put their country first. Do you remember all the threats and taunting thrown at everyone who was worried about TARP's effectiveness? Okay.. now keep that in mind when I tell you the 188 major-league douche bags in the House (aka- the GOP delegation) today voted against the new stimulus package.

Their reasons? Well they suddenly grew a concern for fiscal conservativeness and were worried about all that spending. They even trumped up false numbers to justify it. Oh yeah... and they wanted all those tax cuts that worked so well the past few years.

So let me put this into perspective. The last stimulus bill that they worked so hard for gave billions of dollars to bald-Paulson to do, well... whatever he wanted with it. No strings attached. He just gave it to his rich friends in the banks and they bought themselves all sorts of fancy things (for doing such a good job). That plan failed so miserably that we're having to debate a second stimulus bill. Once we have a stimulus bill aimed at invigorating the core parts of our ailing country (infrastructure, science, education, health-care, etc.) and what does the House GOP do? Theyvote against it. They must have been drinking the Limbaugh kool-aid (now fortified with oxycontin, viagra, and 100% pure bull-shit!).

Whatever, the case I'm not afraid to call this for what it is. This is putting party before country. Self interests of appearance before the needs of their constituents. It's what they would call... "treason." So I hereby nominate the House GOP a whole bunch of traitorous douches!

I hereby state my profound love for Maureen Dowd!

That fiesty vixen over at the Gray Lady has touched my heart with her rant on the rampant corporate greed that has earned a few recent posts on this blog.  

Go read the full article.  Here are a few gems:

New York’s attorney general, Andrew Cuomo, always gratifying on the issue of clawing back money from the greedy creeps on Wall Street, on Tuesday subpoenaed Thain, the former Merrill Lynch chief executive, over $4 billion in bonuses he handed out as the failing firm was bought by Bank of America.

In an interview with Maria Bartiromo on CNBC, Thain used the specious, contemptible reasoning that other executives use to rationalize why they’re keeping their bonuses as profits are plunging.

“If you don’t pay your best people, you will destroy your franchise” and they’ll go elsewhere, he said.

Hello? They destroyed the franchise. Let’s call their bluff. Let’s see what a great job market it is for the geniuses of capitalism who lost $15 billion in three months and helped usher in socialism.


Thain should never rise above the level of stocking the money in A.T.M.’s again. Just think: This guy could well have been Treasury secretary if John McCain had won.

Bartiromo pressed: What was wrong with the office of his predecessor, Stanley O’Neal?

“Well — his office was very different — than — the — the general d├ęcor of — Merrill’s offices,” Thain replied. “It really would have been — very difficult — for — me to use it in the form that it was in.”

Did it have a desk and a phone?

I'm with Dowd. Let's call their bluff and see how they survive in today's job market.  What kind of job does losing billions of dollars and causing massive lay-offs get you (besides ex-President of the United States, that is)?

Douche(s) #8: Bank of America, Bernie Marcus, and everyone else on the call on Oct. 17th.

Hey Kids,

Looks like we got another corporate wammy this week.  You know all those businesses that got massive amounts of bailout money last fall?  You know... the money taken from the income and payroll taxes from the labor sector of America?  Well turns out that after receive our generous gift turned around and hosted a conference call to kill a bill that would help a considerable number of laborers in the US.  

That's right.  Major league douchbag Bernie Marcus (started Home Depot and ignored the safety concerns of his own stores), corporate heads of Bank of America and AIG,  and conservative clowns like Rick Berman, all had a nice little chat on how to destroy the Employee Free Trade Act (EFTA).  The EFTA is arguably the biggest boon to labor since the New Deal and would remove many of the union-busting tactics that douchebags like Marcus have created over the last half-century.  


Three days after receiving $25 billion in federal bailout funds, Bank of America Corp. hosted a conference call with conservative activists and business officials to organize opposition to the U.S. labor community's top legislative priority.

Participants on the October 17 call -- including at least one representative from another bailout recipient, AIG -- were urged to persuade their clients to send "large contributions" to groups working against the Employee Free Trade Act (EFCA), as well as to vulnerable Senate Republicans, who could help block passage of the bill.

The article has links to the audio from the phone call.  It is quite revealing.

So kids, there you have it.  These clowns are willing to take billions of dollars in money from their employees' tax dollars and then turn around fight the same employees' ability to better their lives.  This is what the executive-level douchebags like Kenneth Lewis and Bernie Marcus  call "appreciation."  Mr. Burns would be proud.

Douche(s) #7: CitiGroup Executives!

Hello Kiddos,

Man was today a tough day for singling out an award winner. Between Pope Benedict reaching out to welcome back the anti-semitic fringe, torture survivor Grandpa Grumpy McCain thinking we need to "move on" from prosecuting American torturers, and Rove being his usual lying turd on the nit-wit Hannity's show, I had a hard time choosing. Unfortunately, calling the Pope a douche-bag might offend a significant (and armed) population, making fun of senile old folks is just plain improper, and well... let's face it... this isn't the worst crap we've heard from Turd Blossom and Hannity.

Luckily, I found this nice little tid-bity of douch-baggery. It appears that the dip-shits who put CitiGroup into financial crisis and flew to DC begging for a government hand out last year (probably after disparaging "welfare moms" while sipping martinis at their country club) have come up with a grand idea. After getting $45 billion in "bail-out funds," the best way these profoundly inept comunity college business majors could find to use the public-funds is to buy a $50 million private jet!

The plane, the Dassault Falcon 7X, is a luxurious jet with a range of 5,950 nautical miles (meaning it can fly from New York to all of Europe and South America, as far east as Riyadh, and as far west as Honolulu or Petropavlovsk, Russia). The Post reports it has "plush interior with leather seats, sofas and a customizable entertainment center."

The Dassault website describes the wide, generously appointed cabin, but says the "the airplane's most welcome feature may be Dassault's breakthrough environmental system." It touts "quieting acoustics" and advanced temperature monitoring that contribute to a more comfortable passenger experience.

I'm so glad these morons have come to the brilliant conclusion that, rather than increasing the liquidity of the money markets and stabilizing the them by increasing lending, the absolutely best way to use the tax-payers' money is to find a themselves sweet ride.

I say screw these douche-bags.... make the ENTIRE CitiGroup board of directors take Greyhound for all domestic travel from now on. You know, as a way of meeting all the kind folks who bought them a nice new jet.

: Looks like the Obama Administration felt the same way and forced CitiGroup to retract their plane plans. My guess is they sent Rahmbo after them. What a nice change from the last administration, who would have encouraged CitiGroup to buy 2 planes!
