Quoth El Rushbo:
Ladies and gentlemen, for the first time in my life, I am ashamed of my country. To be watching all of this, to be treated, to have my intelligence, all of us, to have our common sense and intelligence insulted the way it's being, it just makes me ashamed. Seriously man, here we get worked up over $44 billion dollars, that’s the total amount of money that will not be spent that was scheduled to be spent this year. And in truth, we’re going to spend more this year than we spent last year.
The thrice-divorced, draft-dodging, drug-addicted college dropout was born in 1951. So he's lived through the Kennedy assassination, the 16th Street Baptist Church Bombing along with the rest of the violent death of Jim Crow, the assassinations of MLK and Robert Kennedy, the Vietnam War, My Lai, Cambodia, Watergate, Iran-Contra, Columbine, the Iraq War, Abu Ghraib, Katrina, Virginia Tech and Sandy Hook -- just to name a few -- and none of that made him ashamed of his country.
But a manufactured budget crisis, engineered by the GOP -- now that's a national disgrace.
What a loon.
