Are They Insane?

What the fuck is wrong with these Republicans?! Now, they want to eliminate the filibuster. When I write about how they want to destroy the Founding Fathers' vision of America, I had no idea the GOP would take me so literally!

Hey assholes - are you so certain of your unending omnipotence that you want to take a chance like this? You don't want to keep the filibuster around, just in case we take back the majority? Don't you think we're holding grudges?

Just to show you what true buffoons they are, here's the money shot:

Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., says "tyranny by the minority" must end and he will do whatever it takes.

Sorry to have been tyrannizing you there, Billy. We had no idea! We felt like we were the ones grabbing our ankles. Here - have some milk and cookies... oh and don't forget your lithium, you evil son of a bitch.

While we're speaking of tyrants, it's a good time to remind everyone about Sen. Frist's penchant for adopting and then killing innocent animals:

Frist admitted in his 1989 book that, while a student at Harvard Medical School, he adopted cats from animal shelters and practiced surgery on the animals. In adopting the cats, however, Frist told shelter staff members he wanted the animals for pets. All of the cats died as a result of the surgeries.

"It was a heinous and dishonest thing to do," Frist wrote in Transplant: A Heart Surgeon's Account of the Life-and-Death Dramas of the New Medicine.

Yes. Heinous. That's a great word to describe you, Senator.
