So there I was, having a typically mondayish Monday. Not enough sleep, looking at a 13hr day at work. Turn on the 'puter while the coffee pot made its funny noises, and start seeing blog posts about barry's outrageous budget proposal. Ugh. Alright, I'm not really surprised when a tax-n-spend libdork does what he does. Certainly not at all happy about it or willing to overlook it, either, but not surprised. It's about as shocking as seeing a fish swim
But then comes the gall. The brass. The chuztpah ('hoot spa' to those of you in Rio Linda).
"We can't continue to spend as if deficits don't have consequences, as if the hard-earned tax dollars of the American people can be treated like Monopoly money."
You come out, barry, to announce your new budget - that has record-breaking deficits - with a line like that? Holy crap! I strive very hard not to hate people. Lots and lots of people deserve it, but I avoid going there. I won't let them be worth it. But barry, ya know, just screw you,
boy! man! Go sit on a MagLight and shut your purple lips already! $1.6 trillion deficit this year and $1.3 to $1.8T (depending on who ya ask) next year? And you're simultaneously giving us some "your taxes aren't Monopoly money" baloney? Are you really dumb enough to think we're that dumb? Your "I won" BS last year was annoying enough. It was sickeningly arrogant. But today's lines top it all. Sickeningly arrogant AND condescending AND flippant at the same time.
Today I make an exception to my self-imposed prohibition on hate. For all your screw-ups and heavy-handedness, barry, I hadn't hated you. I really, really, looked forward to you being run out of office as a miserable failure, but I never hated you. Until today. Barry, you disgusting, dishonest POS, you have managed to evoke in me a loathing that I have never previously felt. I hope you're proud of yourself...
