Me? Uncivil? Why, Yes. Yes, I am

(If you are easily offended, be prepared to clutch your pearls - this post is rated R)

I’m crushed. Crushed I tell you. I don't know how I can go on...

John Boehner and Joe Lieberman called me *uncivil.* They said I personally have lowered the level of political discourse in this country and I should be ashamed.

Those WATB losers schlepped off to a conference sponsored by those mendacious fucks at the American Enterprise Institute today to bemoan the lowered discourse and incivility in American politics these days.

Much hand-wringing and wailing and beating of breast and gnashing of teeth ensued.

All of us dirty hippie liberal bloggers, you see, have poured vinegar in the sweet, sweet milk of American political discourse.

Give me a fucking break. They are the ones who poisoned the well and salted the fields and now they are getting their comeuppance. Turns out, we kinda got our panties in a twist over having our patriotism questioned and being told to get out of a country that a hell of a lot of us suited up to serve if we were going to have the audacity to put the Constitution ahead of the aims of The Party.

They have obviously and conveniently forgotten some of their own gems:

"We're going to fund only those programs we want to fund. We're in charge. We don't have to negotiate with the Senate. We don't have to negotiate with the Democrats." --Tom Delay, speaking about a budget showdown.

(Lamont’s primary victory) “will be taken as a tremendous victory by the same people who wanted to blow up these planes in this plot hatched in England.” Joe Lieberman, on losing the primary

"People who oppose escalation are taking the “bait” of “al Qaeda and terrorist sympathizers” by using Iraq to 'divide us here at home.' " John Boehner, on those who opposed the escalation if troops into Iraq.

"She isn't young enough or pretty enough to be the President's wife." - Newt Gingrich, talking about his first wife.

My only regret with Timothy McVeigh is he did not go to the New York Times Building. –Ann Coulter

Real fuckin’ civil lot, ain’t they? There are hundreds more, but I am laughing too hard at their hypocrisy to fetch them right sides hurt and I peed a little.

Let them stew in their own acidic juices.

This whole thing truly gives me joy like I haven’t known since that eight years of peace and prosperity known as the Clinton Era.

John, Joe, just let me close with this: Do fuck off and die now, won’t you both? And hurry the fuck up about it.
