In case you're wondering, yes, that's the glow of the TelePrompTer reflecting in Palin's glasses.

It’s bad enough that you’ve likely convinced a bunch of dumb, fat white guys out there who want to fuck you that you’d make a good president. But seriously, just stop being a horrible, ignorant, intolerant, pandering former half-term governor.

There are times on this site when we think we shouldn’t call Sarah Palin names because, you know, we have employers and eventually we’ll want to get new jobs somewhere else or get fired and then need to find a new job and someday a future employer will look at this website and say, “This person’s nuts. We can’t hire someone who’s NUTS.” (BTW, that’s what the Fat American people should say at the polls in 2012 when Sarah Palin runs for president on the Teabagger ticket.)

But then we see Palin’s stupid Luke Wilson jaw and her dumb, smug face and we lose our minds. She can’t DO ANYTHING BUT INCITE FEAR AND HATRED.

And you know what? She’s not entirely stupid because she’s smart enough to know that “blood libel” is a code phrase to anti-Semites across this country. She’s smart enough to know that it’s a wink to people who hate, people who eat up her garbage, people who just can’t stand that a black man is president.

Partisanship. In a word, “Gah.” In a more eloquent — but not really more eloquent — display of thought, partisanship is terrible until you consider that the GOP and teabaggers are horrible, horrible people.

To wit: Asshole Rep. Mike Pence (R-Ind.) is still touting his — and other GOP members’ — bogus claim that the health care reform law is a “government takeover of health care.” It isn’t. But we’ll get to that in a moment. First, here’s Pence’s tired rhetoric, as re-spewed out CBS News’ “Early Show” to coincide with changes that went into effect Thursday because of health care reform, and reported by Business Week:

The House Republicans’ agenda “will focus on getting this economy moving again, getting spending under control, and, yes, it includes rolling back both the failed economic policies and broadly rejected government takeover of health care enacted last March,” Rep. Mike Pence of Indiana, who chairs the House Republican Conference, said Thursday on the CBS Early Show.

The headline is a reference to a Friday Wall Street Journal article — you know, that totes liberal rag — that spells out the problem with America: Americans.

Writer Sara Murray doesn’t come right out and say that Americans are stupid, lazy hypocrites but, hey, we read between the lines and are doing it for her. Americans are stupid, lazy hypocrites. (They’re also fat but that’s another story for another day).

We’ve all heard lately that the deficit is booming, there’s too much government spending, Social Security’s fucked, etc. All of those things are true, of course. Why? Well, the deficit is booming because someone has to kick start the economy and tax cuts for rich people aren’t going to do it. And yes, just in case you’re wondering, the stimulus worked. Certainly not the way the administration thought it would and not as well as it could have, either — because the administration made the mistake of thinking that Americans are rational, thoughtful people — but it did. Just not well enough.

So enough of the background. Here’s what we mean when we say Americans are the problem:

Efforts to tame America’s ballooning budget deficit could soon confront a daunting reality: Nearly half of all Americans live in a household in which someone receives government benefits, more than at any time in history.

At the same time, the fraction of American households not paying federal income taxes has also grown — to an estimated 45% in 2010, from 39% five years ago, according to the Tax Policy Center, a nonpartisan research organization.

You know what never gets old? The Glenn Beck.

We got so much of him at his fat person-only BBQ last weekend that we can hardly quench our thirst. Luckily, some wingnut has come up with a wonderful parody site that randomly generates horrific things Glenn Beck warned us about by using some of his favorite buzzwords. Hopefully this chalkboard app can get you through the day until your Mormon Jesus appears on the teevee to tell you what to be scared about.
