HNT: Breakfast of Champions

Merle Haggard had it right in his 70's hit "Rainbow Stew."

When they find out how to burn water,
And the gasoline car is gone.
When an airplane flies without any fuel,
And the satellite heats our home.
One of these days when the air clears up,
And the sun comes shinin' through.
We'll all be drinkin' that free bubble-ubb,
An' eatin' that rainbow stew.

Last night, on C-SPAN around 10:30pm EST, Rep. Steven King from Iowa said his wife would be "statistically" safer in Iraq than she is in Washington D.C. He said "the military action in Iraq is nearly at it's completion." Then he went on to say America could have won Vietnam if the media hadn't fucked it all up. He said, and I quote, "We lost Vietnam because of our Democracy." THESE DUMB ASSES ARE RUNNING OUR FUCKING COUNTRY PEOPLE!!!

Steven King? Talk about a scary name. The only thing more frightening may be his ideas.

I love the use of "statistically" in their argument. I suppose we could dig little coffins for these nutjobs. Next, cover them with dirt and insert a feeding tube. Then.. "statistically" they would be much safer six feet under than anywhere else. Better yet, they would be as forward looking as their solutions to most any problem.

PS. I found your blog via the nutjob CABE and his racist group. CABE sadly lacks a frontal lobe. Anyway, I like what you got going on here. Keep up the good work.

I always wondered where they came up with that 'tickle me Elmo' line. Now I know.

Steve King IS one creepy asswipe. From the photos on his site he has one with Michelle Malkin and another of him on a mountain in Nepal where he is building a cross made of rocks. Personally, I would like to see a picture with Malkin UNDER the cross of rocks in Nepal. Or anywhere else, for that matter.

My Iowa Republican dumb ass's name is Leach. How's that for truth in advertising? And we've also got Senator Chuck (Snake-in-the) Grassley. Lucky us.

LOL! Well Mel, sounds like Texas and Iowa have few differences.

Wow, Peter Goss just resigned. Or was forced to walk the plank...

OK, so it won't pass, but all the same... Go Iowa! Tom's a righteous dude and even the Leach is in on this.

'Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, submitted the proposal in the Senate. The proposal was also introduced in the House by Rep. Mike Thompson, D-Calif, and co-sponsored by Rep. Jim Leach, R-Iowa.

"The capable and courageous men and women of our Armed Forces have completed the tasks they were sent to Iraq to accomplish," Harkin said. "Today, the question is: Why are U.S. forces still in Iraq?"

... Harkin said the United States should end any plan for a permanent military presence in Iraq or a claim on its oil. He also said commanders have acknowledged the remaining challenges are mostly political rather than military.

"Given these realities, President Bush's call to stay the course is a slogan, not a strategy for success," Harkin said.'
