Quote of the day

Having the party of Bush lecture you about out of control spending is like having a heroin addict chide you for putting too much sugar in your coffee.

  1. testing 1 2 3 testing...

  2. A heroin addict will NEVER think you put too much sugar in the coffee. They're absolute fiends for sweet stuff. Give 'em a handful of sugar packets and they're happy. (At least as happy as they can be, because smack addicts are a whingey bunch.) Still, it's one of the reasons I'd rather take care of a heroin addict than a crackhead. Downer junkies are so much easier to please.

  3. I think that's the point, Bukko. Rethugs are fiends for deficit spending the way heroin addicts are fiends for sugar. Rethugs whining about deficit spending are like heroin addicts whining about people putting too much sugar in their coffee... i.e., folks who ought to pluck the structural steel beam out of their own eye before talkin' about the speck of dust in someone else's.
