There are no accidents round here: within twenty minutes these two items appeared on Your Fucking Washington Post (and everywhere else) this afternoon:
Corporate gets: Appearing at the regular White House news briefing, Obama said the bipartisan proposal is “broadly consistent” with the approach he has advocated in that it reduces discretionary spending and tackles health-care spending and entitlements while also raising additional revenue.
Pwoggles get: The Obama administration announced Tuesday that it will support a congressional effort to repeal a federal law that defines marriage as a legal union between a man and woman.
How it works: Corporate gets to start seriously gutting social safety nets, pwoggles get a vague promise on a social issue Obama will never have to repay (plus the admittedly wonderful and addictive joy at imagining motherfucking cracker head's exploding). I bet pints on Obamadick's reelection. I offer you 4-1.
Was going to lead with this tomorrow, but tomorrow is a High Holy Day at BLCKDGRD, and while BLCKDGRD is never completly aargh-free I try make High Holy Days as aargh-free as possible.
Besides, I desperately need to get this song and this song out of my head.
