President Obama Had Better Do Well In The Other 56 States

New Hampsire is Darcy Richardson territory. And strange territory it is:

Throughout his presidency, President Obama has allowed the GOP to frame the debate on almost every issue, none of which was more painfully devastating to his progressive base than his failure to include a public option in health care. Simply put, the President gave in without a fight.

I must leap to the defense of #OccupyResoluteDesk:

  1. He’s a lover, not a fighter.
  2. He was late for a tea time.
  3. Princess Pelosi, Plugs Biden, and the Bent Reid told him that it was in there.
  4. Cruella Sebelius thinks Eric Cantor deleted it out of spite, because it had been put on page 2212 of the legislation by some obscure lobbyists known as the Priests of the Temples of Syrinx.
  5. We have to crater American health care, and really put the ‘boom’ in Baby Boomers, so that the people beg for the public option. It’s really all about the begging, not health care, you see.

Tell you what, Darcy: become New Hampshire governor and just knock your little booties off with that public option.

Aside: Wikipedia likes to list Rush as ‘Progressive Rock’. Sad, impotent little Progressives, always looking for ways to mooch off of producers. Unless the Temples of Syrinx, themselves, are the ultimate destiny of Progress. . .

    Heh.  Rush played 2112 in their most recent concert tour, Time Machine.  Also had the entirety of the Moving Pictures album.

    Anyone listing them as “Progressive Rock” has obviously never actually listened to “Trees” or “Temples of Syrinx” or ….

    Darcy’s not running for Governor of New Hampshire, he’s running for President. 

    He has no experience, he isn’t terribly bright, but none of his close associates are in prison for corruption right now, so he is obviously more qualified than Obama.

    I read that song title at first as Temple of Syringes. I guess I couldn’t get that image from the next post of Paul And The Paultards out of my mind.

    I’d be surprised if the plural of “syrinx” weren’t “syringes.” After all, isn’t the plural of “phalanx” “phalanges?”
