    •  Common sense and Boner are like two ships (5+ / 0-)

      that passed in the night, never meeting...

      then crashing into icebergs and sinking to the ocean floor.

      What's wrong with America? I'll tell you. Everything Romney said was pre-chewed wads of cud from Republicans from the last 30 years and yet he managed thru a combination of racism and selling the (false) hope of riches to get 47% of the national vote.

      •  And someday, some explorer (3+ / 0-)

        will dive down deep to look at those ships. They will discover that their cargo was guano.

      •  The GOP is like a Carnival cruise ship (5+ / 0-)

        Adrift, without power, and only five toilets for three thousand passengers and probably 1000 crew.

        Once in a while you get shown the light, in the strangest of places if you look at it right.

          They have planned budget cuts in place which they will not alter.

          Planned Budget Cuts on the GOP Closet Maricón Cruise Line:

          1. Mothball the rescue & support fleet, fend for yourself, it's the GOP Closet Maricón way.

          2. Massive layoffs of the ship maintenance personel onboard all ships.

          3. Selling off all ship maintenance tools and parts to a private company at a massive loss, which will be repurchased as needed at whatever price the private company demands.

          4. Closing 50% of the toilet facilities onboard all ships except in 1st class which comprises 1% of the ship, but not to worry the items in #5 will reduce the need.

          5. Reduction of food & water consumption except it the 1st class section of the ship.

          6. Reduction of the 1st class passenger fare for certified Millionaires & Billionaires.

          7. Refitting a section of the ship to accomodate corporations travelling on board as 1st class passengers.

          8. Cutting the number of lifeboats on board to carry just the 1st class and corporations carried on board.

          Are you ready to go on a cruise?
          It's going to be sooooo much fun!
