Hey, it's Heckuva Job Brownie! Here to tell the president that we are NOT "in it together"


Remember the Heckuva Jobber? Yes, Brownie's back, and running off his mindless mouth! Our colleague Zappatero dug out this clip to go with his DailyKos post (see below).

Remember how all those Bush regimistas who were so busy sitting on their fat asses -- except for the mangler-in-chief himself, of course, who was busy cutting cake with Young Johnny McCranky -- so they could turn the natural disaster in New Orleans to a man-fanned if not actually man-made catastrophe? It sure is a good thing they were all so thoroughly shunned and prosecuted for their criminal incompetence!

Especially that point man for the thieving ineptitude of right-wing governance, Mikey-Mike "Heckuva Job Brownie," the man who so proudly played with his tiny wienie while the city was being strangled. You figure along about now Brownie should be facing his first parole hearing, and you have to hope they're not going to think seriously about letting him out of the slammer. Let him serve every last second of his sentence.

What? He's not in the slammer? You mean he got off somehow? Huh, not even indicted? Well, thank goodness, the miserable little turd has had the sense to take a vow of silence. Man, if he ever had the nerve to open his mouth in public again . . .

Oops again. Our Colorado-resident colleague Zappatero reported yesterday on DailyKos that not only has the Heckuva Jobber gotten access to a radio microphone at Denver's 850 KOA News Radio, but he actually talks about subjects other than the only one he's familiar with: his own turditude.

And Tuesday night he polluted the air waves with his "thoughts' (for want of a better word) on the president's speech to auto workers in Detroit, reminding them that Republicans has been not only ready but eager to drive a stake through the heart of the American auto industry. Of course, as he pointed out (for internal links, see the onsite version of Zap's post),
[...]It’s been funny to watch some of these politicians completely rewrite history now that you’re back on your feet. These are the folks who said if we went forward with our plan to rescue Detroit, “you can kiss the American automotive industry goodbye.” Now they’re saying they were right all along. Or worse, they’re saying that the problem is that you, the workers, made out like bandits in all of this; that saving the American auto industry was just about paying back unions. Really? Even by the standards of this town, that’s a load of you-know-what.

* About 700,000 retirees saw a reduction in the health care benefits they had earned.

* Many of you saw hours reduced, or pay and wages scaled back.

* You gave up some of your rights as workers.

* Promises were made to you over the years that you gave up for the sake and survival of this industry, its workers, and their families.

You want to talk about values? Hard work –- that’s a value. Looking out for one another -– that’s a value. The idea that we’re all in it together –- that I am my brother’s keeper; I am my sister’s keeper -– that is a value.

That very night our boy the Heckuva Jobber mouthed off on-air. Zap quotes this chunk of the podcast transcript:
@2:40 BO: "Hard work, that's a value.".

@2:42 MB: "What?"

@3:06 MB: "And we're not all in it together."

@3:56 MB: "In terms of getting people a hand up. What's the difference between a hand up and a hand out?"

@4:40 MB Lies about the intent of the statement "I am my brother's and sister's keeper." That good Christian purposefully misinterpreted the Bible, I guess.

@5:20 MB "Say that to Lewis and Clark, say that to the Founding Fathers."

@5:48 MB "They did it without you. And they did it without the Stupid Government."

Did you ever think you'd live to see the day when Heckuva Job Brownie would be flapping his gums ridiculing "Stupid Government"? Is he deaf as well as stupid? Really now, you can't make this stuff up!

I was pleased to see that Zap pounces on the Lewis and Clark bit. "Lewis and Clark did have a little bit of government help, I dare say," he interjects, and he quotes a couple of paragraphs from the Wikipedia article on the Lewis and Clark Expedition.

Where, you have to wonder, did the Jobberman even hear about Lewis and Clark? More to the point, how did he not manage not to hear that it was entirely a government-sponsored expedition, undertaken at the personal initiative of President Thomas Jefferson, in large part as a follow-up to the government's massive, trans-continent-reaching Louisiana Purchase, also done at President Jefferson's initiative.

How does a piece of doody like Heckuva Job Brownie dare to open his mouth when he has nothing available to shoot out of it except his bottomless ignorance and malicious lies? And, oh yes, scumbag ideology. Here's Zap (again, links onsite):
Of course Michael Brown doesn't want to be his brother's keeper. He showed us that when he was FEMA Director under George Bush. Those are the rock-solid values of today's Republicans: no questions asked, no doubt that about their selfish concerns, no regrets when they fuck things up and their fellow Americans die.

For Republicans like Michael Brown, we are not all in this together. For today's Republicans, it's perfectly clear you are on your own, come hell, high water, or both.

You can only hope that Brownie has the sense to shuffle back to his cell muttering, "I'm a frigging disgrace, I'm a frigging disgrace." Oh wait, he's not in a cell, is he? I keep forgetting.

Which just leaves one question. I understand that we can't stop Heckuva Job Brownie from talking, 'cause we've got free speech here in the U.S. of A., and we're might proud of it. But why is anybody listening?
