Love letter to the US Senate. It could be worse? ...

After the knifing abuse of Joe Lieberman, US Senate, no one wants anything to do with you. After the sickening insider dealing of Max Baucus, US Senate, everyone thinks the entire body should sign up for work at the nearest landfill. After the ridiculous, utterly debasing pandering to Olympia Snowe, US Senate, no one still wants to admit how screamingly the Founders fucked up when they created you. After the gross insider deal to Ben Nelson, US Senate, all desperately search for medication or handy recreational drug to blot out the howling fucking nightmare as soon possible, God, get a clue to how loathed and clownish y’all are.
It gets better?
Obtuse, ego-besotted, clownishly bought and politically fat with six year terms, the flabby, groaning body of the Senate nonetheless still has outdated, glacial political instincts that occasionally flicker through the old corpse, the upcoming in-trouble nomination of Ben Bernanke being one of these rare times. Usually the elite-enabling, genial denier Republican would of course been given a pass for any accountability to his job and confirmed automatically, but even Senators are starting to realize they’ve gone too far recently and should do the right thing for once by barfing Bernanke to keep up appearances.
Sadly Krugman, who once seemed to stand solidy for truth or something close to it seems to have been brought low in defending certain parties in our exponentially corrupt system:
I felt bad for Paul Krugman this morning, who basically said yes, Bernanke missed the finance bubble and will do nothing for the unemployed (Lord am I sick of inflation weenies with the unions busted, get a clue) but he’s a nice man who hired me once, please confirm him. Sorry, Paul, understandable loyalty to your boss doesn’t work when confirming the Chairman of the Federal Reserve, not hardly.
Really, as if Obama would even try to find "a good Democratic responsible populist" rather than a failure of a Republican [what are you thinking paradox]:
Reject Bernanke, yes, instantly because he’s a Republican, of course, all they know how to do is obnoxiously screw up. Then reject him precisely because he really screwed up and also has the nuclear gall to ignore the little people. Then hope the Obama Administration finds a good Democratic responsible populist to be Fed Chairman, I find it hard to believe Krugman could be wrong again today, it can’t be that hard, there must be one credible name out there to do the job. Oh that’s right, Paul, there’s you at right near the top.
At one time I thought Obama was an intelligent worth while human being who was able to process information and understand it.

First I was abused of any idea that he might be a worth while human. During his campaign he didn't just make a few promises he couldn't keep, instead he out right lied about everything. Just like a Republican Thug.

Next he undermines his own story line that he listens to all by striking secret deals with the very corrupt 'health care' industries that need fixing and then pretends to listen to 'others' later. So much for his intellectual honesty.

But the worst of all is his fetish with putting failed Republicans in important political positions.

Barack Obama has been as effective as the Supreme Court in negating a significant Democratic victory. Obama appears to think he was elected as President of these United States in order to finalize the turning over of the country to corporate, fat cat, Robber Baron power.

Obama and the Supreme Court. Working in tandem.
