If you and your moronic cohorts hadn't spent the past 18 months attempting to subvert the U.S. Constitution and ram unwanted, unnecessary and ultimately destructive legislation down our throats, you Dems wouldn't be in this pickle (pardon the pun).
BOSTON --Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry unleashed a broadside Thursday against Republican "obstructionism," saying the GOP and its talk-show allies have created a "period of know-nothingism" in the country.
With his party braced for defeats in the midterm elections, the 2004 Democratic presidential nominee told the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce that a Republican machine -- fueled by talk show hosts such as Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck -- has undermined progress and misled the public into believing Democrats created the country's current economic problems.
Kerry singled out attacks on an energy deal he was negotiating with Republicans, which fell apart amid criticism of an emissions-trading program. Some 20 Senate candidates are now opposing the proposed deal in their campaigns.
"It's absurd. We've lost our minds," said a clearly exasperated Kerry. "We're in a period of know-nothingism in the country, where truth and science and facts don't weigh in. It's all short-order, lowest common denominator, cheap-seat politics."
To underscore his claim, he said statistics show Republicans had blocked Senate business with filibuster tactics more during the past 18 months than the period between the end of World War I and the Apollo moon landing in 1969.
"The obstructionism is stunning," Kerry said, noting the country still lacks an assistant treasury secretary. "I think America really needs to know more of this kind of tactic and how it's shortchanging us."
"We the People" showed YOU, Senator, what we thought of you when you ran for president. And lost. Because we rejected your arrogant elitism and your fraudulent claims to some exceptionalism that you don't possess. We rejected your lies about our soldiers in Vietnam, we rejected your "Don't you know who I am?" condescension and your feckless, leftwing pandering. So here's a word of advice, Senator. Shut the hell up! You will be nothing more than a pimple on the ass of our nation's history when you have moved on to your dirt nap and nothing you can say or do will change that eventuality.
