Megadittos and Merry Christmas!
Rush Limbaugh has been quick to notice that the MSM--the Drive-By Media--is all doom-and-gloom, all Have Yourself A Rotten Little Christmas. The Lefties seem to want to spread as much Ain't-It-Awful as they can. Listen to what they are bitching about at the Democrat Underground:

--I'm sick and tired of the MSM praising Shrub (GWB) and Pickles (First Lady) for their ANNUAL visit to Walter Reed to visit the wounded soldiers. It's because of him that they're there in the first place, and the asshole should be visiting them and the families he's destroyed EVERY day instead of once a year to try to let us think he cares. At least if he's visiting the wounded and the families, he's not in Washington further destroying the country with more of his failed policies. Is it even possible for there to be a bigger waste of humanity than this asshole? (Riddler)
Like it would be better for the President not to go at all! No, they can't be happy that the injured men and women get to see the President at Christmastime--and they are ignorant of the fact that the President goes MORE than once a year!
--Business never better for contractor that failed badly in Iraq. Parsons Corp., a defense contractor working in Iraq, was given $275 million and contracts to build health clinics and a police academy. It failed miserably, but that hasn't hurt the company's business."We've lost no business over it. In fact, the very people who are criticizing us are giving us more work," Chief Executive James F. McNulty told the Washington Post. Here's a question for the incoming Congress: Why? (JABBS)
I guess, for the miserable Lefties, it would be better if this business were to go under altogether...
--FCC defends fine for Janet Jackson breast flash. I can't wait until 2008ish when we can fire everybody at the FCC who thinks that censorship of words and breasts is still consistent with the values of the average American. I want to run these f****** out on a rail and cut their funding in half for just this sort of bullshit. I don't know about you but I'm more offended by the existence of state empowered censors than I am the sight of Janet Jackson's breasts. This perceived need to edit the language of the music I enjoy listening to pisses me off even more. If you're offended by the music, change the fucking radio station pilgrim. (MGD)
Yes, lets not have standards, none at all. (And DON'T try and sound like the Duke; you're not remotely like him!)
--Some people, at year's end, like to spread holiday cheer. The world might do better, suggests a landmark new report from the United Nations University in Helsinki, to start spreading wealth. The new study--the first ever to tally, for the entire world, all the major elements of household wealth, everything from financial assets and debts to land, homes, and other tangible property--finds some $125.3 trillion worth of wealth about in the world, as of the year 2000.
Year End Report On Global Inequality If that wealth were divided in perfectly equal shares among all the world’s 3.7 billion adults, every adult on Earth would hold a net worth of just under $34,000 in U.S. dollars, according to The World Distribution of Household Wealth report. (Jcrowley)
Nevermind what you actually work for and earn; it's such a fine communist notion that we should all have the exact same thing! Funny, they don't want us all to have Walmart's or McDonald's on every corner, in every country. Just ignore all the world aid and private charity Americans--mostly Republicans--give.
--I had a sad thought as I was rushing to finish things at work before Christmas...
It just occurred to me that there are almost certainly going to be soldiers killed in Iraq on Christmas. And that Christmas will never be a joyous time for their families, ever again. And that Bush will have a perfectly nice holiday with his family. First, I was really sad. Then, I was really angry. Now, I'm sad again. (mycritters2)
It wouldn't occur to me to be so poor in spirit to wish unhappiness on someone--or to assume how they feel without my bothering to ask them.
-- Bush signs S.3421 Veterans Bill kicker it does nothing. Today making a huge deal out of signing S.3421 a bill rushed by Republicans before they left. Saying I am giving 3.2 Billion to the VA and Military Families. Nope only $36.8 million goes to veterans health care. Leaving a shortage about 3.4 Billion for this years budget. As to Military Families the bill little to help in housing and everyday living.
Families will still have to live on food stamp if they have more then one dependent. There is some of this money going to the treatment of PTSD but not nearly enough. The Brain Injury research is still been cut by 33% instead of the 70% the Republicans wanted. The homeless section of the bill is not there no more. So no new grants to help the 200,000 homeless veterans. So yes Mr. Bush go Camp David thinking you have done a great job. Scrooge. (Monkeyman)
I guess they'd rather the President have done nothing at all... No sense celebrating that SOME improvement was made. No, we can't EVER say this Prez has done even ONE thing right.
--A journey of follies, first Shrub flies his gas pig to Iraq to see "wtf is wrong over there", then Blair goes to see "wtf is wrong over there", then Rumsfeld goes to see "wtf is wrong over there", Then Gates goes to see "wtf is wrong over there", it's as if they are going to determine whether the sky is blue or not, it would be the same gd thing if you ask me. This dance of known unknowns is sickening in the extreme, as if they can't ask the generals both on the ground and in the air "wtf is wrong over there", as if they personally need to visit their stillborn democracy to know how badly they effed things up.
Like somehow if someone else goes over, perchance everything will change, the different factions will all have a group hug and a rainbow will form with a pot of oil at its end. They may as well be pissing in the wind if they think they can make this thing go away without a MAJOR conflagration which is only a few short weeks away imho. Hey, I think I'll send a delegation to the moon to see if water is wet. I'm pretty sure it is, but I need confirmation from someone ya know, up there... "on the ground". Idiots and fools.... leading a brave military where it should never have gone. (4MoronicYears)
They, however, don't mind John 'Effen' Kerry using his 'gas pig' to go to the middle east. No, they don't mind THAT. The man didn't accomplish ANYTHING over there (except to collude with our enemies)--and with a billionaire wife who could well afford to pay for the trip herself!
