So yesterday was the ten year anniversary of the not guilty verdict for Bill Clinton at his Senate impeachment trial.
Shortly after I called Slade Gorton’s office that day in early 1999 to promise that Gorton would be defeated for voting to convict, some pussy called my phone and left a message pretending to be from the IRS, threatening me with an audit. I knew it was bullshit because the stupid fuck sounded like some young dumb fascist idiot. You know, a typical Republican.
Anyhow, I never could find out who it was, but to all the former Slade Gorton staffers out there, fuck you. Journalists may have to play pretend, but regular people know and remember how we were treated. Again, fuck you, you stupid Slade Gorton staffer. Who’s laughing now?
Oh wait, I do remember who called me. But I’ll just keep that to myself for now.
And Fuck Bi-partisanshit. I swear to God, the next time a journalist starts in about “bi-partisanship” I’m going to tear my lush, luxurious head of hair out. There is no bi-partisanship with these people, they are insane and their supposedly reasonable (“Moderate!”) leaders and workers have been insane for a very long time.
People who work for Congress should not call constituents and threaten them with retaliation from the IRS. That’s fascist bullshit, and the fact that anyone in the cesspool would find it acceptable kind of tells you what kind of sick minds we are dealing with. This kind of shit pre-dated Bush the Younger.
To bring it up to the present day, Obama can give good press conference all he wants. It’s awesome and he even inspires a cynic like me. But his administration needs to fully understand that the Republican Party is composed of political sociopaths, and deal with them accordingly.
