I really, really wish Ed Schultz would quit bringing Republican hack Ron Christie on his show. That said, I've got to hand it to Joe Madison for this rant here where he called out the greedy Republicans for holding the poor hostage to get their tax cuts for the rich.

MADISON: I’m going to tell you, what we really should be doing… we ought to be in the streets. We ought to be jumping on these greedy Republicans who have the audacity to try to keep going what they had going for the last ten years.

Here’s what I would tell Republicans. Okay baby, it’s in your court right now. Create the jobs! And you’ve got thirteen months to get these people off of unemployment that you held hostage. You’ve got two years to create jobs in this country instead of spending that money on your luxury items. Ron is full of it. This is an attempt to just allow rich people to maintain their hundred thousand, three hundred thousand, four hundred thousand. Create jobs or shut the hell up and American people ought to be in the streets screaming, not at President Obama so much because I’m going to tell you, you guys sat here and you held the poorest of the poor hostage! You played chicken with poor people’s lives and you ought to be ashamed of yourselves.

They should be but that would require them having the capacity to feel shame in the first place. And amen to Joe. They keep saying those tax cuts create jobs, well let's see the job creation now that they got their wish. You know the next bullpucky they'll be spouting is that there's still "uncertainty" for the "job creators" since the extension is only for two years.
