Name-Brand Ketchup.

Reblogged from the always astute and observant Mr. Blunt and Cranky.

The very last thing said during the interview with Congressional Republican David Schweiekert was him saying, “This is my idea of fun.” Listen to him for yourself, get it right from the horse’s ass. (You can click on the audio from NPR on Mr. B & C’s blog.)

That is everything you need to know, peeps. Millions of people out of work, government services taken away, billions of dollars added to the national debt…this, to Republicans, is considered “fun.” It is amusing to them, no doubt, because they will not suffer the consequences of their actions: their salaries and health care will not be cut, and they will continue to live high on the hog, their porcine snouts buried in the public trough.

  1. I live in Arizona I know this man well. To think he used to be my father’s boss at Maricopa County’s Treasurer’s Office. My dad said he was a nice guy but he would not vote for that man for dog catcher. Schweiekert is nothing less then a corporate whore. To be fair I think he was talking about the interview being his idea of fun but I am sure he is having fun screwing the public as well.

      WASHINGTON (AP) — More than a third of House Republicans urged their leader Thursday to trigger a government shutdown rather than fund the implementation of the health care overhaul they call “Obamacare.”

      A letter from 80 Republicans asked Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, to resist any spending bills that would accommodate the new health care law, which is nearing a critical stage of signing up millions of Americans for health coverage.
