We Must Stop Uppity Women From Ramming And Stripping Us

Sometimes the peculiar psycho-sexual obsessions of the Washington Post editorial page lie just beneath the surface. And sometimes they're right there on the surface:

Two weeks ago Ms. Pelosi rammed legislation through the House of Representatives that would strip Mr. Bush of his authority as commander in chief...

If you allow the uppity women (FROM SAN FRANCISCO) to ram things, and strip us, we will no longer have authority. And then, as Newt Gingrich fears, it will be the end of our ability to "show the planet that you're tiny and we're not."

The thing I really, really, really don't get about the past 6 years is how anyone could possibly buy the idea of George Bush (and his "administration") as macho. I'm as up for some homoerotic hero-worship as the next guy, but George Bush is *obviously* a pussy. Virtually everything he does is passive-aggressive and sneaky - he's the complete opposite of a macho dude. In my former capacity as a blue-collar supervisor, I have personally fired dozens of guys like him. How is it possible that he is taken seriously? This is not a rhetorical question, I really don't get it.

Just guessing here, but I'll bet Newt owns a pair of knee length, spiked heeled, black leather boots with red velvet lining, a pair of handcuffs, and---------- a whip. What a man, what a president.

Maybe someone who is not as lazy as I am could run a search on Wa Po editorials with "ram" and "legislation" and "House of Representatives" from the period of oh, say, 2002 - 2006.

How dare the Iranians not torture their Brit prisoners, how dare they. All is not lost for I envision Newt on a hunt, a hunt for giraffes, something he claims that real men do and no doubt is responsible for his meteoric rise. Apparently the only qualification for being a national leader, or a non-signing Washington Post editorial writer, is to have the maturity level of a three year old.

The only thing that is humiliating is watching our child king stomp around the world in his soiled diapers, a pacifier in his mouth, while throwing temper tantrums, poor child king, gootchy gootchy goo.

Well, look, I hate to run with this theme, here, but Pelosi is obviously an enormous boob. Less megalomaniacal fuckheads, more democracy.

Newty is just hung like a Hamster. That guy is the joke that keeps on telling itself. Man what an irrelavant fu

Hopefully someday we will relgate the human-filth that represents or represented states that succeeded from and still to this day openly despise the Union as "second-class representatives". Then maybe we could rid ourselves of unproductive political discourse... Maybe a few failed congresses as well too, eh?

When you're ordering the dildoes and manacles, don't forget the ball gags.
