Wankers Of The Day

Joe Lieberman, for swallowing the Sarah Palin Kool-Aid and accusing a foreign national of treason against the US:

ANCHOR: What do you think of the Justice Department’s actions so far to not charge Julian Assange with treason?

LIEBERMAN: I don’t understand why that hasn’t happened yet.

And Barack Obama, for taking his compromise fetish to insane new heights:

This country was founded on compromise. I couldn’t go through the front door at this country’s founding. If we were really thinking about ideal positions, we wouldn’t have a union.

Gee, I must have missed the part where the Founding Fathers reached a compromise with the British to obtain our independence.  And, as dday points out, the Republicans have done pretty well for themselves with their steadfast refusal to compromise on anything.

(Note: I include the YouTube mainly because I first thought it said, “Pres. Obama: I’m happy to be tased by GOP next year”, which seemed… unusually candid.)

WIth Dems Like These, Part 832

So Obama’s brilliant “compromise” plan is to use the unemployed as human shields to extend tax cuts for the rich, gut the estate tax, and apply a “temporary” payroll tax cut that can probably never be repealed and will make it easier for Republicans to destroy Social Security once and for all?

Gee, what’s not to like?  I particularly like how Obama gets to re-use the healthcare reform messaging playbook: “How can you oppose these gifts to the rich and corporate?  Why do you hate unemployed people???”

Also, what a bitch says.
