Dissent was patriotic...

...now it's, and I quote, "Political Terrorism", at least according to Hoosier Democrat congresscritter, Baron Hill.



Dang, does this mean I need to buy a keffiyeh?

Tam, I'm so confused. Where does the Constitution authorize congress the responsibility to spend money on health care?

Dolan

Tam said...

The same place it authorizes it to fund public housing or build space stations.

Political terrorists?

Haven't they worn out the "terrorist" card yet?

Run, lawboy, run ...

"Haven't they worn out the "terrorist" card yet?"

It's not hysterically demonizing your opponents when we do it!

tomcatshanger said...

Maybe he meant Politician Terrorists?

Caleb said...

Maybe he just doesn't like his job any more and this is his way of asking Hoosiers to find him a replacement in 2010.

People I thought I would never quote
"I'm sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and disagree with this administration, somehow you're not patriotic. We need to stand up and say we're Americans, and we have the right to debate and disagree with any administration."
— Hillary Clinton

...My pig flew away today and Hell froze over.

...Since they have played the race card into the ground, worn the terrorist card thin they just laid out the next boogieman. Militia.

Next up?

What I've noticed is that the democrats are complaining about not being correct displays while the republicans are thanking them for the input.

Caleb, +1.

If po' widdle Baron can't stand the heat, he should get the hell out of the kitchen.

All y'all down south there ought to assist him on the way, next election.

Not enough "bike" content on this here blog. I hereby invite Ms. Tam to come down to the EVIL EMPIRE and view the holy yellow (and proper) sausage maker that landed here today. Nothing like retro Italian cafe racers to get things back on track.

I wish we had more of that statement than a TWO WORD sound byte. *shrug* But cynical me can't help but think that if they had to trim it down that much, the context in which the phrase is uttered makes it less damning.

I'll see if I can find a link with more of the interview, but my YouTube-fu is weak.

Nathan said...

Here.

A remarkable collection of jellyfish we have in Mordor on the Potomac these days.

Dang, does this mean I need to buy a keffiyeh?

Don't you already have one?

perlhaqr said...

Ok. :D Yay, sources!

Thanks, Nathan.

Tam said...

Noah D,

No, I have a shemagh, not a keffiyeh.

And I didn't get it at U.S. Cav; my bud JShirley brought it back from Afghanistan for me. Most useful "vacation" tchotchke anyone's ever brought me. :D

B Smith said...

Wouldn't it be some sort of offense against Allah for an infidel to wear a keffiyeh?
Meh, I think I'll just stick with the standard, Western-type ski-mask...

Tam said...

I eat smoked pulled pork. And bacon. Would the keffiyeh get me double secret probation?

Fairly certain I can plead that down to Petty Possession of Pig Without License and Failure to Heed A Man, both misdemeanors (no loss of limbs).

Depends on the country, but more likely than not we can get you counseling and house arrest with your husband and his other wives.

Shootin' Buddy

Tam said...

I LOL'ed. :D

Tamara, if you lived in a Sharia country your nickname would have been "Nub" or "Stumpy" for a looooong time now.

I like it that the screen cap shows a picture of the actual God of political terrorists along with that of Rep. Hill.

The contrast between the founders and their current successors is beyond comprehension, isn't it?
