LIVEBLOGGING FROM THE CIVIL WAR  10:11 pm November 2, 2010

There Will Be Tea: Liveblogging America’s Return To Slavery, Part IV

by Ken Layne

whoa whoa what the hell ...Is this still happening? Has Rand Paul bankrupted America and outlawed blogging yet? We’re entering HOUR FOUR of this teabagstravaganza, and we’re still weeping for the loss of Our Christine (“You”) because comedy is going to be in short supply, forever, and she was our queen! Well whatever. At least John McCain won his easy-ass had-it-forever Senate seat, so ol’ Walnuts will still be around to yell at clouds.

10:06 PM — A House loss is still just “likely,” after all this ruckus?
10:08 PM — And what exactly is lost, should the GOP/TeaPee take over the House again? What are they going to do to “get back” at the Democrats, pass a bunch of environmental legislation and climate change legislation and stop the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq?
10:12 PM — Haw Haw, Michele Bachmann is on MSNBC talking to Chris Matthews. It is wonderful. She is dressed wonderfully. Matthews wants to know if Michele will investigate all the Democrats for un-American activities.
10:13 PM — She won’t answer! She just says “the economy is job one.” So, presumably, Job Two is investigating Democrats for un-American attitudes.
10:14 PM — Her smile is 1,00,000 watts of coal-fired happiness. (She will not answer his question at all.)
10:15 PM — Christ Matthews just asked if Michele Bachmann is hypnotized.
10:16 PM — Har har, Michele just mocked Chris Matthews for his “tingle down the leg” comment about Obama.
10:17 PM — Now Matthews is actually having to explain his 2008 excitement about Obama; he is sticking to the anti-American investigations Bachmann has said (on his show) that she would lead.
10:17 PM — “She just moronically looks at the camera.” — Chris Matthews, who is correct!
10:18 PM — Do not miss PART III (the one where Jar Jar gets raped/killed) of our Liveblogging, which is here.
10:19 PM — Eric Cantor, Washington politician, is telling MSNBC that America has spoken against Washington.
10:20 PM — The Twitter flow of gibberish is subsiding, at least from the Washington Media/Political People we follow. Did everybody just get high and go to bed?
10:23 PM — Geraldine Ferraro and Sarah Palin live on Fox News, together, for some reason!!!!
10:23 PM — Why? Because both share a forbidden love of “Fritz” Mondale.
10:25 PM — The hair on Palin is IMMENSE. Never seen that much hair. Her neck can barely hold it up.
10:26 PM — Ferraro … we fell kind of bad for not knowing she was still alive. She seems to be fine!
10:26 PM — Sestak-Toomey still too close to call?
10:26 PM — It’s getting terrible now. Eric Cantor won’t leave MSNBC, Bill Bennett has eaten all of his co-panelists.
10:30 PM — We need some Conventional Wisdom to make it through this Long Night of the Soul. Let’s go check the New York Times!
10:31 PM — “Republicans See Big Gains in House: Tea Party Propels G.O.P. in Senate, but Democrats Are Ahead in Key States”
10:32 PM — Uhh.
10:33 PM — Sestak holding a 29,000 vote lead with 72% reporting.
10:33 PM — Does Campbell Brown sit sadly tonight, drinking scotch and cursing at CNN? What about Aaron … Brown? Was that his name? Dan Rather was jabbering nonsense on one station or another earlier today, so he’s happy we suppose.
10:35 PM — Nikki Haley wins! Despite the “slut shaming” by Gawker.
10:38 PM — Russ Feingold officially loses.
10:38 PM — This means four Senate pickups for the GOP, 45-2-43 at the moment. (Meaning, “47 including the two independents who are sorta Dems.”)
10:40 PM — But the states with all the people and money (the “liberal elite states”) are still pretty heavy wins for the Democrats. (Florida had people, but no money.)
10:43 PM — Just 18 minutes until the California polls close. Jesus god this has only begun, hasn’t it?
10:45 PM — Using his usual “people can be divided up into tenths, like dimes” methodology, Nate Silver predicts 51.6 Senate seats for the Dems and 48.3 for the Republicans.
10:47 PM — And the House will go to the GOP, 232.2-202.8. The end.
10:51 PM — Andrew Cuomo somehow defeated America’s Greatest Governor, Carl watermelon-email guy!
11:01 PM — New liveblog by that Jack guy, look! Polls have closed in California! Yahaghghgh!

Your other Queen Michele Bachmann is screeching away and Chris Matthews just asked her if she was hypnotised because she has answered the same question 3 times the same way and then asked her if she was in a trance…it was epic!

obfuscator2 November 2, 2010 at 10:17 pm

and some fuckwit mong had a huge bachmann banner in the shot. appropriately, it was upside down.

aaaaand tweety just called her a moron.

Redhead November 2, 2010 at 10:20 pm

damnit! I'm at work and they have it on CNN (though CNN did introduce "O'Donnell giving her loser speech" a bit ago, which gave me a warm fuzzy feeling.) But MSNBC sounds amazing right now.

PublicLuxury November 2, 2010 at 10:36 pm

Bachmann is one of the stupidest people alive. And a bitch to boot. Hard to believe she was a tax attorney at one time.. Also hard to believe she has lived as long as she has being as stupid as she is…

DeLand_DeLakes November 3, 2010 at 2:25 am

Ugh. I grew up in the shithole of a district that has now elected this horrifying caricature three times. If my parents didn't still live there, I'd be in favor of nuking it. (I mean, we gots a Rethug House now, gotta nuke somethin'…)

SayItWithWookies November 2, 2010 at 10:17 pm

Our Christine (You)… sigh — it seems like just yesterday I was Time Magazine's person of the year, and now I've lost a Senate bid. And frankly, America, I'm disappointed in all of us.

UpstateYorkee November 2, 2010 at 10:17 pm

Jesus fucking fuck. Did anyone just hear Bachmann on MSNBC?

Fare la Volpe November 2, 2010 at 10:19 pm

Kitty_Sanchez November 2, 2010 at 10:21 pm

Chris Matthews just said something like Bachmann just stares into the camera and moronically recites things over and over, like she's hypnotized.

She always looks hypnotized. Those eyes always look like Charlie Manson eyes.

Beowoof November 2, 2010 at 10:25 pm

Yes I heard a series of non-sequiturs from Michelle.

"are you going to use your majority in the house to investigate democrats in congress for unamerican activities?"

GodHelpUsAll912 November 3, 2010 at 7:20 am

" This is not as terrible as I had feared, but that's mostly because I'm not watching TV news coverage and plus I'm drunk."

That explains the stupidity, and lack of facts.

Jukesgrrl November 2, 2010 at 10:18 pm

When Rand Paul decides he doesn't like the rules of the Senate (probably on Jan. 15), he'll decide to make up his own Senate. Then the real fun will start.

obiwanacracker November 2, 2010 at 11:00 pm

But the avatar has captured the feminine essence of Ayn/Dagney. Or not. Something about some personal hygiene issues. I can't believe I still remember this shit from high school. Most of us outgrow it soon after.

Kitty_Sanchez November 2, 2010 at 11:44 pm

A fucking creationist and an Ayn Rand cultist?? And too stupid to be rightfully embarrassed. On second thought, no, that seems about right.

neiltheblaze November 2, 2010 at 11:57 pm

Can you imagine what Ayn Rand would think of Creationists? Does this clown realize what contempt she would have for him?

Badonkadonkette November 2, 2010 at 10:29 pm

Sorry, no super majority in the senate. Not likely to be one in the future. Veto still at the top. You call this a victory? Your standards are low. Ha ha, welcome to America. Nothing to cry about here.

Your kitty is a bit pale there, plantation-man. I yearn for FREEDOM for all people. Equality is to be before the law, not in outcomes…

I am a mere 40yrs old, so you will be seeing me around for quite awhile. Sad note? I eat well and exercise just enough… I am VERY healthy. Your best bet is that I get hit by a car… LOSER!!!

fatoots November 2, 2010 at 11:38 pm

Where do you live? I get great gas mileage.

Lost_Teabaggers November 3, 2010 at 1:07 am

No our best bet is that you outgrow your childish stupidity, I mean seriously you're 40 years old and a Rand cultist? I think that actually says a lot about your relevant intellect. Question, did private plantation owners keep slaves and if so isn't it a little shortsighted to say all private property is holy? Also, if private owners can ensalve people and use indentured servants doesn't that shoot a hole in your belief in the sanctity of private property? If you admit humans can own other humans it's a blackhole in your philosophy because one way or the other you must eliminate someone's freedom…either the freedom of those being enslaved by saying it's okay to enslave them or the slave owners freedom by using the government to regulate them. So which is it? (and yes, this question is still VERY relevant, especially with the direction of worker rights in this country)

JMPEsq November 2, 2010 at 10:51 pm

Yeah, how dare people start wars for no reason and just give out tax cuts to the rich willy-nilly to create a deficit! Hell, remember how this country's worst President, that moron Ronald Reagan, created that giant deficit?

Ein_Rant November 2, 2010 at 11:21 pm

I see you are proficient at being a parrot. Did you get an A+ in talking points 101 without having to give "teach" a knob-job? Or did you do that out of a sense of obligation?

nappyduggs November 3, 2010 at 12:42 am

"Ass-mileage." Admittedly, I tee-heed. I'll give you this one; but seriously, Senator Boehner, don't you have other things to which you should attend right now? We all know that you have a Steno-Pad just rife with these bon mots (Boehn mots?) but you may as well save some for later. It's gonna be a long two years.

Just get it over with and make the graphic a tiny scared face (or stoned face) on the state of California looking over to the rest of the country. Maybe it will be a face that one gets when you encounter a scary crazy person on the street — the kind you cross the street to avoid. If everything goes as planned, California will be refuge. If things really go bad, we head to France.

Alright Oregon can huddle alongside California in an Edvard Munch Scream. If Washington State is open to it, we can offer ourselves to Canada.

Used to live in Oregon. Miss it. Great state, even though moss grows everywhere and it looks like a combination of Teletubbyland and a Lord of the Rings forest. Hell, up there, I'm a moderate.

I am in California. I just stood behind a meth addict for 10 minutes as he tried to game the ATM machine, while his little chihuahua pooped on the plantings. Are chihuahuas the dog of choice for meth addicts? Anyway, what I mean to say is that in California crossing the street to avoid these people is not possible.

Beowoof November 2, 2010 at 10:21 pm

Jeebus, Michelle Bachman is on talking about investigating Un-American Attitudes. Holy Shit they plan to waste a lot of money and time and effort doing shit no one cares about.
Tweety Matthews, just asked Michelle if she is under a trance tonight, because no matter the question she gives the same answer. When Chris called her on it, she gave the same answer.

If there's anything I can't stand more than a Randroid, it's a smug Randroid. Wouldn't you rather have rough sex with your significant other, who you've surely nicknamed either "Dagny" or "Hank", than post on a political blog full of sad, liberal drunks? Or take Leonard Peikoff's fist up your distended rectum? Sanction of the victim and all, y' know.

I swear by my life and my love of it … that you are a fucking asshole.

At least it seems you read a book one time… My congratulations to you…

PresBeeblebrox November 2, 2010 at 10:59 pm

Motherfucker, I know your type. You sad, pathetic Randroids slum around in your Rand-conventions, looking to score with fat, ugly chicks and fat, ugly guys while talking about the finer points of Introduction to Objectivist Epistemology and drinking weak beer or, if you get really daring, smoke weed. You like to talk about how the Constitution really means we should kill everyone, all the time, and how Atlas Shrugged is a great piece of well-written fiction. You either idolize or demonize Nathaniel Branden because he fucked, or refused to fuck, Ayn Rand. You idolize or demonize Leonard Peikoff or David Kelly because they are, or are not, true to the Holy Writ of Ayn. You are completely absorbed in a philosophy created by a screenwriter who really hated Bolsheviks. And, of course, you are better than everyone else because you are entitled to the Virtue of Selfishness.

So, yeah, go fuck yourself.

Hell, there's a couple of hundred bills the House has passed the last couple of years because Nancy Pelosi is actually good at her job, but they are sitting in the Senate now awaiting action.

OzoneTom November 2, 2010 at 10:26 pm

You know that I heard a "voter" being interviewed on NPR earlier. She is unemployed and voted to put the Republicans back in power because of "taxes and shit".

Hey, she's unemployed — maybe no one told her that she doesn't have to worry about taxes.

Well if she gets her way then she can pull herself (and her spawn) up by her bootstraps and they won't be a burden on us Working Americans with another extension of unemployment benefits.

Beowoof November 2, 2010 at 10:30 pm

Well Ronald Regan did put taxes on her unemployment check so there is that to think of.

OzoneTom November 2, 2010 at 10:37 pm

But, in fairness, I feel that I must point out that her tax rate is much lower than that of millionaires who create all of the jobs that she does not have.

BeWoot November 2, 2010 at 10:44 pm

Actually, I believe her effective tax rate is much higher than that paid by the plutocrats, whose income is usually deducted to down around middle class rates by the time their accountants get through massaging the numbers. Also, the taxes Little Miss Unemployed are subject to include FICA, which is exempt from any earned tax refund.

So, any way you slice it, she's an idiot.

MissTaken November 2, 2010 at 10:32 pm

And it's about time that gets really explained. Why, exactly, have liberals let Reagan and his spoor control the narrative for 30 years? I know probably a hundred people who get $5,000 plus tax refunds every year, with their unaffordable children credits…and who think they 'pay' taxes.

Sestak has a 51-49 percent lead over Toomey right now, according to ABC. And interestingly enough, nobody's mentioned the Citizens United decision and the consequent spending as having an affect on the outcome. Maybe the idea that lots of corporate spending doesn't necessarily get you a seat in Congress will catch on. If Americans are thoughtful. Or maybe I should just keep drinking.

Heh heh — on ABC, the five-dollar version of SE Cupp is saying that Karl Rove and the mainstream Republican backlash against the tea party was the reason the GOP didn't pick up all the seats it could. Oh it would be so funny if this election was more divisive to the Republican party than the 2008 ones, when by way of recrimination, they promised to change — which meant they would do the same shit they always do, only more so.

But now that both right wings of the Republican Party have exhibited some amount of success, they might both feel they're carrying the banner for the next generation. I hope they start tomorrow by beating each other over the head.

It couldn't answer you, so it claimed boredom and left it with an insult.

About Rand cultists: I've learned that intellect can be unhelpful (or even harmful) if it's not accompanied by emotional intelligence and a measure of humility — two things notably lacking in, I think, all Rand cultists I've encountered. It seems futile to pose questions to them that will require them to do a bit of self-reflection. It seems beyond the cultist's ability to ponder his/her own existence from another perspective — that of his/her beloved self as just one fragile human life within a social grouping of all other human beings, within all of humanity's history and future. Their internal response is white noise, which they diagnose as stupidity on our part, the end.
