Bang Head Here: Republicans Spewing "Bipartisan Unity" Again

It happens every cotton-pickin' time. And that wingnut David Broder is usually lurking behind holding the curtain fountain pen.

This time, Broder wants you to consider Michael Bloomberg's smarmy, calculated attempt to bypass the democratic process and worm his way into the White House via some kind of 2008 version of the Trojan Horse.

New York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, a potential independent candidate for president, has scheduled a meeting next week with a dozen leading Democrats and Republicans, who will join him in challenging the major-party contenders to spell out their plans for forming a "government of national unity" to end the gridlock in Washington.

Those who will be at the Jan. 7 session at the University of Oklahoma say that if the likely nominees of the two parties do not pledge to "go beyond tokenism" in building an administration that seeks national consensus, they will be prepared to back Bloomberg or someone else in a third-party campaign for president.

What a crock.

As usual.

Hey, Dems! This is the same "bipartisan unity crap" song these wankers sing every election year, just a different verse.

Chew on this...

"The Dog and the Thief"

A thief came in the night to break into a house. He brought with him several slices of meat in order to pacify the Housedog, so that he would not alarm his master by barking. As the Thief threw him the pieces of meat, the Dog said, "If you think to stop my mouth, you will be greatly mistaken. This sudden kindness at your hands will only make me more watchful, lest under these unexpected favors to myself, you have some private ends to accomplish for your own benefit, and for my master's injury."

The moral of the story...

Fair words, presents, and flatteries are the methods of treachery in courts as well as in cottages; only the dogs are truer to their masters than the men."


... and don't fall for the "ready to make nice" Republican election year battle cry. You all know the real meaning of Republican bipartisanship:

Don't fall for it.

Don't even give lip service to it.

I mean it, damn it.

Best bar bet in the world: Delilah didn't do it.
Judges 16:19--
