Joe Wilson the Star of a Cast of Players

Joe Wilson was despicable and un-America. Obviously he needs to hone up on Robert's Rules as well as his manners. But I don't think he's the only disrespectful Republican around town. If you watched the president's speech, you might have noticed that the camera kept panning over one particular side of the aisle. As a group they obviously had been well rehearsed. I almost expected to see a conductor.

During the president's speech, the Republicans slouched in their chairs with coats unbuttoned, some smacking their gums and looking like dumb cows chewing their cud. At some point they would make a point of looking angry and then sarcastic. All perfectly timed, all perfectly orchestrated. The bottom line is they were being totally disrespectful the the president and his office.

Some of the classier Republicans seemed to be sitting a bit apart from the rest. Some simply looked uncomfortable sitting so close to their ignorant ill-mannered colleagues.

But back to the star. From LiberalValues:

------------------------------------------------------ I'm posting from a remote computer that is cranky and uncooperative. I've spent three hours on something that normally takes one. As I pull my hair out I apologize for any screwed up layout that may be on my blog but I'm not about to spend any more time editing.


  1. didn't they look terrible?? So disrespectful and ignorant!! I saw the commentary from Keith, hes the BEST!!
    Hope you get your computer problems fixed fast!

  2. Thanks for posting this. It's very encouraging to see someone like Olbermann so eloquently and forcefully spell out the facts. We don't get to see this sort of thing here much.
    Tonight's local (commercial) news showed a protest against communism outside the White House featuring the most horrendously stupid looking hicks spouting pure nonsense - that being what most people here see of US politics.

  3. They really haven't accepted the reality of being out of power. They seem to think this is all a bad dream, it's not real, and they don't have to treat it as being real. Obama's not really the President so they don't have to treat him like the President, and they are marching in the name of "the people" against the government that the actual people elected in a landslide in 2006 and 2008.

    The right wing's biggest problem these days is the tenuousness of their grip on reality, and it seems to be getting worse.

  4. Sorry to hear about your technological difficuties, Leslie. Keep up the good work.
