The Washington Post Is Being As Subltle In Their Sequestration Coverage As You Expect

From earlier today on their homepage.


(Follow me on Twitter at the link above)

Coverage like this is why I don't think sequestration will happen. People think it will happen because Congress is so dysfunctional. I think it won't because the one thing Congress is good as is coming up with gimmicks to avoid pain.

Parody [ace]: Ezra Dulis did a parody of that Washington Post photo.

PS, I'm very sorry I keep stompin' the cobs' posts!

4 I don't think I've ever seen such a look of misery and dejection on the face of my daughter as I just did a moment ago.

I sat down with her on the sofa and (as calmly as I could) tried to explain to her why the Republicans think it's okay to kill walrus. I tried to keep my voice steady, but it became increasingly difficult - the rage and feelings of helplessness were just too much. She could tell something was wrong. I found myself at such a loss for words - nothing made any sense; nothing makes sense anymore. I finally had to admit, " I just don't know - I don't know what's going on in this country anymore..."

When I finished her lower lip started to tremble and her eyes began to fill with tears, "Mommy" she said, "why are the Republicans doing this to the country?" Well, that was it for me: I finally fell apart. I just fell into her arms and we both began sobbing for several minutes. She had to comfort me and get me back on my feet. Sometimes I just think it’s too much, but seeing the strength in my daughters voice helped me to get through.

Any penny cut from the federal budget is a club to the head of a baby seal.

I guess the fireman's first rule now applies to baby seals as well.

At least Newt! back in 1995-96 understood this was bullshit.

I wish the GOP didn't think that they lost that battle because now the GOP leadership is running scared.

Seals/sea lions are assholes.

At night they run schools of fish into the docks and smash them against your boat hull with their bodies so they can feast.

They jump up onto docks and the swim steps of people's boats and destroy everything. And of course, here in my beloved Clownifornia, by law you can't molest the seals. That includes shooing them off your boat.

More than once, they've literally SANK boats tied up to the docks here in SoCal.

108 Factual version of the story:

The National Zoo plans to spend more of the taxpayers' money. If the National Zoo gets less money from the taxpayers, because, for instance,taxpayers have decided to stopspending money that they don't have so that theirchildren and grandchildren have some hope for the future, then the National Zoo might not be able torealize its plan ofspending more money, unless the National Zoodecides toraise the moneyprivately, through donations or something, but it would be so much easierjust to get it fromthe taxpayers. Either way,the animals areokay.

With his 55% approval among all peoples of America, he can survive politically the act of holding seniors, soldiers, children, retreads, gov't slackers, free-phoners, meat-ticklers, ball-checkers, first responders, second responders, may responders, and the like hostage in the sequestration standoff.

So if he can survive letting 750K of the most overpaid gov't workers be kicked out into the street, he can surely survive cutting the budget by 20%.

A penguin is driving along in his car on a very hot day. Suddenly, his engine starts making weird sounds, so he finds a mechanic's shop and pulls in. The mechanic says he'll check it out, but it will take a half hour or so. The penguin sees an ice cream shop across the street and decides to go over and have an ice cream cone. Since it's a hot day, he eats his ice cream cone fast because it was melting all over.

He goes back to the mechanic and asks about his car. The mechanic says "It looks like you blew a seal." The penguin wipes his mouth and says "No, that's just ice cream."
