The Department of Bait And Switch brings us this alert about the Leftards getting a mite antsy over those with whom the Ayatollah Obambi is surrounding himself for the Al-Obambi excuse-for-a-government.
Liberals are growing increasingly nervous – and some just flat-out angry – that President-elect Barack Obama seems to be stiffing them on Cabinet jobs and policy choices.
Obama has reversed pledges to immediately repeal tax cuts for the wealthy and take on Big Oil. He’s hedged his call for a quick drawdown in Iraq. And he’s stocking his White House with anything but stalwarts of the left.
“He has confirmed what our suspicions were by surrounding himself with a centrist to right cabinet. But we do hope that before it’s all over we can get at least one authentic progressive appointment,” said Tim Carpenter, national director of the Progressive Democrats of America.
OpenLeft blogger Chris Bowers went so far as to issue this plaintive plea: “Isn’t there ever a point when we can get an actual Democratic administration?”
You don’t suppose…(gasp!)…naw, it couldn’t be…(AIEEE!!!)…please, Maitreya, no…(GASP, ARRRRRRGH!!!!)…NOT THE THIRD BUSH TERM!!!!!!!!
(Insert all the s you can muster with the next 12 hours of oxygen.)
Now, Denizens – this is not to say that we’re about to be pleasantly surprised, okay? We’re not – this is still a needle-dicked, ball-less wonder of a socialist proon (gratuitous Star Wars novel alert!) with delusions of mere adequacy.
But to think, even for a second, that the pussies on the Left have gotten the political dildo shoved up their asses again…
…well, it do be to laugh, don’t it?

Hasn’t even started the new job and it seems the Demoscum have all the answers. Al-Obambi says our economy is going to get worse before it gets better (no schiatzu Sherlock), but to ensure it DOES get better the Manchurian Muslim is going to see to it that he extracts $1 trillion from us for a “stimulus” package. Go here for the details.
So how much IS $1 TRILLION exactly? Try this on for size:
Let me give you a handle on how big $1 trillion is. NASA has a budget. You know the people, they send up space planes and the space station and all the satellites and everything else that NASA does? NASA’s budget is $17 billion. The post office’s budget is $34 billion. The Department of Labor is 10, EPA is 7. Treasury, well, this has got to go up. Can you check on this, Joe? It’s only $12 billion, but they’ve got to be spending a lot more on ink and paper right now. Treasury department is $12 billion. Department of Energy is $24 billion. The Department of Transportation is $12 billion. Justice is $20 billion. Agriculture is $20 billion. Department of Interior is $10 billion. Department of Homeland Security is $120 billion. That’s $286 billion for all of those: NASA, post office, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Labor, EPA, Department of Treasury, Department of Energy, transportation, justice, agriculture, and interior, $286 billion. Obama wants a $1 trillion stimulus package. By the way, if you add in the defense budget, the Department of Defense budget for 2009 is $515 billion. Half a trillion dollars. Add that to all of the other departments I just gave you, that’s $801 billion. You still have $200 billion left before you reach the new Democratic stimulus package of $1 trillion.
Soooooo, given that as of last month the US population was 305,682,072….then that means the Demoncrappers “stimulus” package is going to cost each American roughly $3,271.37. Don’t know about you folks, but even my 401k doesn’t have that in spare change just ready to “give” to the government to get the economy jumpstarted.
Hey Al-Obambi, do us a favor. Get government out of the equation.
Like THAT is really going to happen.
