Now It Can Be Revealed: The Obama Administration Is Just A Hideously Expensive Twilight Zone Reference

Politico has the YouTube clip, if you really want to hear #OccupyResoluteDesk at his Orwellian finest. Part of the transcript:

Just two days ago, a senator from Utah promised to obstruct every single American I appoint to a judgeship or public service position – unless I fire the consumer watchdog I put in place to protect the American people from financial schemes or malpractice.

A member of the #OccupyWhiteHouse Muffinhead Guard restrains an irate Progressive from coming completely unglued on a bitter, clinging conservative Senator who doesn't understand that, when BHO says "This isn't about me" he means "You better bet your bippy it's about me and toe my line, or the dog gets it."

For the most part, it’s not that this senator thinks these nominees are unqualified. In fact, all of the judicial nominees being blocked have bipartisan support. And almost 90 percent have unanimous support from the Judiciary Committee.
Instead, one of his aides told reporters that the senator plans to, and I’m quoting here, “Delay and slow the process in order to get the President’s attention.”
This isn’t about me. We weren’t sent here to wage perpetual political campaigns against each other. We were sent here to serve the American people. And they deserve better than gridlock and games. One senator gumming up the works for the whole country is certainly not what our founding fathers envisioned.

    Breaking – Herman Cain endorses Gingrich, says “Us guys with zipper issues gotta stick together.”

    Okay, I made the quote up.

    You are clearly jaded.   I am jaded too that it has supposedly come down to Mitt or Newt.  There must be an alternative.

    An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge is perhaps the greatest episode of Twilight Zone, just sayin…

    He’s the Haywood Jablome of presidents. I can decide if he’s going for the lip sync or the lip lock.

    Nope. It’s Mitt or Newt. Get ready to make your choice.

    I could deal this if they just stopped messing with the focus, y’know?

    Unfortunately you are probably right.  But I will vote for Santorum in the primaries.

    Definitely in the top five – but there are lots of episodes which could illustrate aspects of this Administration.

    Yeah right, why not at half time at the Superbowl. It would be better than Madonna.
