Fox News’ Juan Williams said earlier today that it’s Republicans’ fault that the Bambicare websites utterly failed like they did.
Yes, he really said that.
Yes, he really said that.
He also said that two-thirds of Americans want Republicans to ease up on criticizing Bambi & the Demoscum.
Why the hell did Roger Ailes ever think it was a good idea to bring this asshat aboard?

After many years, we’ve finally found the fatal error in Firefox.
Mack Swaringen @mswaringen
Not sure why, but http://healthcare.gov only works with Firefox for me. On Chrome, IE, & Safari, it’s stuck on the waiting page. #obamacare
3:11 PM – 7 Oct 2013
I anticipate a patch no later than Firefox 26.0 Beta 3. Which, come to think of it, should be just right around the corner…

Item: In response, David

Drudge has reported that Andy Griffith has died at the age of 86.
A few years ago, I’d have been effusive in my praise for Andy Griffith – particularly his “What it Was, Was Football” routine. That one was funny as hell.
But since he grew senile and turned libtard on us a few years back with his support on Bambicare – meh. I’m sorry, Denizens…I just can’t. This man wanted to stand between me & my liberty, and I won’t ever praise someone like that.
Good effin’ riddance.

Drew M over at Ace of Spades (hat tip: Subotai Bahadur, whom I still wish would come over here to write for me) puts it in crystal clear terms:
This is your last chance. If you blow this, I’m out and you need to be destroyed.
What is it? Repeal ObamaCare on Day 1. Don’t worry about replace, don’t worry about anything else. We will do everything we have to drag your sorry asses over the line this fall, including electing Mitt Fucking Romney.
In return this is what you will do:
Instead of adjourning for pictures and tea and cake to celebrate getting your pathetic asses elected to 2 or 6 years on the government teet, you will immediately pass a one line bill that says, “The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (and whatever statute number has to be included) is hereby repealed.”
That’s it. Nothing more, nothing less.
Since Congress meets before Inauguration Day, Obama will still be President. Simply hold the legislation at the desk so the 10 day pocket veto clock doesn’t start. If other parliamentary BS is needed, just do it.
Then as soon as Mitt takes the oath of office, before his speech no one will care or remember, walk the bill up to him at the podium to sign.
If this does not happen, the GOP must be destroyed and a new party built to replace it. We’ve tried the carrot approach (votes, money, volunteers) to change your behavior. Now it’s time to show you the stick.
No more, “oh the other guys are worse” scare tactics. That might be true but it doesn’t mean you are any good.
This is your one job, do it or join the Whig Party in the dustbin of history.
Amen & amen.
I’m voting for Romney now, and I expect him to not only win, but to smash Bambi, and to drag a decisive GOP majority to Washington DC with him.
If they fail, I will have voted for my last Republican.

Fox News has just reported that the “individual mandate” portion of Bambicare is constitutional as a tax. John Roberts sided with the leftist pusstards on the decision.
I say now, and for the record – I WILL NOT OBEY THIS.
I am currently covered under my company’s plan. When it goes away – and I guaran-damn-tee you, it will go away – I will not get replacement coverage.
Let me say that again: I will not purchase coverage.
I will not pay any related tax.
I will not pay any penalty.
IRS, you will have to come get me.
If you dare.
Fuck you, Johnita Roberts.
Fuck your wife.
Fuck your kids.
Fuck you, George “Shrubya” Bush, who put the son-of-a-bitch on the Soprano Court in the first fucking place.
And last but not least – fuck the Hell outta you, B. HUSSEIN!!! Obambi.
I. WILL. NOT. OBEY!!!!!
UPDATE: And Denizens, I hate like hell to contradict myself, go hypocritical, make a liar of myself, all that.
But I have no choice. Apologies to the Vicar, the General, Plett, the Lady, La Reina, Mrs. Venomous – everyone.
But as of now – 0930 hours, 6/28/2012 – I am declaring my intention to vote for Willard Mitt Romney for President of the United States of America.
Because, you see, Obambi – I know whose ass to kick, you illegal Kenyan son of a slutty crack whore bitch.

As the years go on, I have become less and less impressed by the various beauty pageants. This report from the Miss Universe folks just put the final nail in the coffin.
“Transgender women have notched a key victory in a bid for equality, as the Miss Universe Organization announced today that they will be allowed to compete in its pageants.”

Well, whaddya know?! A Demoscum finally submitted a bona fide, for-real budget proposal!!!!!1!!ONE!1!ELEVENTYQUADRILLION!!~
Holy crap!!! That Demoscum was actually B. HUSSEIN!!! Obambi!!!
And…uh…well, it was a close vote, anyway.
President Obama’s budget was defeated 414-0 in the House late Wednesday, in a vote Republicans arranged to try to embarrass him and shelve his plan for the rest of the year.
Actually, like one of the commenters to this story pointed out, you don’t really need the GOP to embarrass the Ayatollah. He’s doing a pretty damned good job o’ that on his own.
Now, consider for a minute. This “budgert proposal” (if you wanna call it that, it was so pathetic) got shot down 414-0.
Bambicare is looking like it might be toast, as well.
Gas prices? Don’t even get me started on that.
Yet, poll after poll after poll I’m seeing suggests the American people want to give this douchebag a second term.
If the presidential election were held today, 47% of Americans would vote for President Obama, 39% would vote for Mitt Romney and 14% are not at all sure. Last month, 46% said they would vote for President Obama while 37% said they would vote for Mitt Romney. Among Independents, it’s a closer race with 43% voting for the President and 41% voting for the former governor and 48% of adults in the 2012 Swing States (Colorado, Florida, Indiana, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, and Virginia) voting for President Obama and 41% voting for Mitt Romney.
Anyone else besides me see a big disconnect here?

This past week, Rush Limbaugh took 23-year-old-coed-cum-30-year-old-libtard-activist Sandra Fluke to task for daring to come before a group of Congresscritters and having the chutzpah to demand that we, the American taxpayers, give her and her fellow bimboids money to support their $1000-a-year sex habit.
Limbaugh called her – quite properly, I might add – a “slut” and a “prostitute”. And I say “quite properly” because that’s exactly what she is, by definition.
Today, Rush Limbaugh let down the conservative movement.
For over 20 years, I have illustrated the absurd with absurdity, three hours a day, five days a week. In this instance, I chose the wrong words in my analogy of the situation. I did not mean a personal attack on Ms. Fluke.
I think it is absolutely absurd that during these very serious political times, we are discussing personal sexual recreational activities before members of Congress. I personally do not agree that American citizens should pay for these social activities. What happened to personal responsibility and accountability? Where do we draw the line? If this is accepted as the norm, what will follow? Will we be debating if taxpayers should pay for new sneakers for all students that are interested in running to keep fit?In my monologue, I posited that it is not our business whatsoever to know what is going on in anyone’s bedroom nor do I think it is a topic that should reach a Presidential level.
My choice of words was not the best, and in the attempt to be humorous, I created a national stir. I sincerely apologize to Ms. Fluke for the insulting word choices.
And in issuing this apology, Rush Limbaugh has ruined everything he’d worked over 20 years to build. Limbaugh’s credibility, if you ask me – and you didn’t, not that I give a shit – is damaged beyond repair. The one thing you don’t ever do in this business is apologize to an enemy you may (or may not) have offended. Say what you mean, and mean what you say, and stand by it, and let the chips fall where they may.
Otherwise, why should anyone believe what you have to say going forward?
Limbaugh has committed what I consider to be a cardinal sin: He backed down. That makes him worthless to the conservative movement – and to me, as well.
And the more I think about it, the more I realize that it’s going to have ramifications for the Realm, as well.
Stay tuned. Barring a major change of mind, changes are coming to this blog.

Looks like ObamaCare is going to need life support.
And I couldn’t be happier about it. Read more here.

There’s an extremely maddening quality to Newt Gingrich: Every time he gets some momentum going and you think he might be an okay guy to vote for, he goes, sticks his size 13s in his mouth and makes you remember that he’s a libtard in RINO clothing.
And if it’s not that, it’s siding with the Ayatollah on Bambicare.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Sunday that he strongly supports a federal mandate requiring citizens to buy health insurance – a position that has been rejected by many Republicans, including several who likely will be running against him for the Republican presidential nomination.
Appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Gingrich told host David Gregory that he continues to advocate for a plan he first called for in the early 1990s as a Congressman, which requires every uninsured citizen to purchase or acquire health insurance.
Newt Gingrich’s appearance on “Meet the Press” today could leave some wondering which party’s nomination he is running for. The former speaker had some harsh words for Paul Ryan’s (and by extension, nearly every House Republican’s) plan to reform Medicare, calling it “radical.”
“I don’t think right-wing social engineering is any more desirable than left-wing social engineering,” he said when asked about Ryan’s plan to transition to a “premium support” model for Medicare. “I don’t think imposing radical change from the right or the left is a very good way for a free society to operate.”
As far as an alternative, Gingrich trotted out the same appeal employed by Obama/Reid/Pelosi — for a “national conversation” on how to “improve” Medicare, and promised to eliminate ‘waste, fraud and abuse,’ etc.
G’night, Newtie. Thanks for playing.

Denizens, the winter storm that’s plagued the rest of the country did, in fact, hit Realm Headquarters. Nothing like last year, to be sure, but enough to keep me & Mrs Venomous cooped up in sub-20 degree temps.
And I’ve had plenty to do today despite all that, so haven’t really felt like writing.
Thus, your assignment is to read this treatise from Misha regarding the Bambicare decision in Florida yesterday.
May have something else for y’all by tomorrow, who knows?

In a piece of great news to start the Vicar’s cruise off on the right foot, a federal judge – who for once, wasn’t acting in the role of a black-robed tyrant-wannabe – just took Bambicare and shoved it right back up Bambi’s ass:
The full text of the decision from Federal Judge Roger Vinson is not available yet, but according to reporters who’ve seen the decision, he’s ruled the entire Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act unconstitutional. The ruling favors of the 26 state attorney generals challenging the law. The judge ruled the individual mandate that requires all Americans to purchase health insurance invalid and, according to the decision, “because the individual mandate is unconstitutional and not severable, the entire Act must be declared void.”
And what makes it even more delicious is the way this Hemingway turd phrased it. You could almost see & hear the tears flowing as he wrote it.
One down, two to go. Gotta love it.

(Hat tip RedState.)
This should surprise absolutely no one.
When Congress required most Americans to obtain health insurance or pay a penalty, Democrats denied that they were creating a new tax. But in court, the Obama administration and its allies now defend the requirement as an exercise of the government’s “power to lay and collect taxes.”
And that power, they say, is even more sweeping than the federal power to regulate interstate commerce.
Administration officials say the tax argument is a linchpin of their legal case in defense of the health care overhaul and its individual mandate, now being challenged in court by more than 20 states and several private organizations.
Under the legislation signed by President Obama in March, most Americans will have to maintain “minimum essential coverage” starting in 2014. Many people will be eligible for federal subsidies to help them pay premiums.
And I will still refuse to pay it.
