Gregory: Obama is claiming victory - so sell me on the stimulus

Axelrod: our first mission to avoid catastrophe

Gregory: are we aiming for mere misery?

Axelrod: sort of - but we're going to give people jobs and rebuild America at the same time

Gregory: two birds one stone

Axelrod: right

Gregory: will this prevent unemployment reaching 10.0%??

Axelrod: maybe - let's face it, Stupid really fucked up

Gregory: i have some shocking news - McCain's advisor doesn't like your plan

Axelrod: holy shit! [ jumps out window ]

Gregory: come back!

Axelrod: ok [ climbs back in ]

Gregory: Paul Krugman says you're not spending enough

Axelrod: we have a Goldilocks Bill

Gregory: not too much and not little?

Axelrod: exactly it's just right

Gregory: what if you fail?

Axelrod: maybe I'll take your job Greggers

Gregory: The Economist magazine says your bill spend on pork instead of job creation

Axelrod: unlike throwing $9 billion out of an airplane

Gregory: but that was before when money was free

Axelrod: oh right i forgot

Gregory: what else?

Axelrod: we're going to cut taxes and rebuild schools

Gregory: but you're depending on a psychological bounce - while the media is determined to destroy you

Axelrod: but then you'll lose your jobs too!

Gregory: we don't think that far ahead

Gregory: Republicans say your bill was not Republican enough

Axelrod: such a shame - one more GOP bill and we would be invaded by Micronesia

Gregory: also they said you spend you too much

Axelrod: i never heard much about 'generational theft' when the GOP was spending like drunken sailors on tax cuts for their rich friends

Gregory: would you concede it was a mistake to let Democrats write this bill

Axelrod: on sure maybe we should have let Lindsey Graham write it - then it would have really really big debts and higher taxes on poor people

Gregory: now you're talking!

Axelrod: i was kidding Dancin’ Dave

Gregory: Speaking of Republican objections to the bill -

Axelrod: were we?

Gregory: yes - buried in the bill you will have 15 people who will destroy doctors and patients all across America

Axelrod: yes that's exactly what computerized records will do

Gregory: but the Star Chamber Medical Council is allowed to sieze kidneys from people off the street!!!

Axelrod: only white people

Gregory: why you do hate the Chinese and India?

Axelrod: they give me heartburn

Gregory: Wall Street bonuses?

Axelrod: we're not terribly worried about the politcal fallout of going after ovrepaid exectives

Gregory: so sad

Gregory: talk to me about rescuing banks and your idiot puppet Geithner

Axelrod: so the Dow dropped who cares what those idiots think this is all their fault

Gregory: but no one knows what your plan is

Axelrod: it's a secret

Gregory: Nationalize banks?

Axelrod: you mean like the FDIC?

Gregory: never heard of it

Gregory: Should all Americans get a free house?

Axelrod: home values are going down which is very sad

Gregory: but the overvalued homes!

Axelrod: it's a tough problem

Gregory: also should Auto companies go on welfare?

Axelrod: why not bikes or skateboards or shoe companies?

Gregory: Can America survive GM going bankrupt?

Axelrod: only if the unions agree to work for $5 an hour

Gregory: Judd Gregg bravely ran away - what happened

Axelrod: it turned out we wanted a free Democratic seat and he wanted to count only white people in the next census

Gregory: irreconiliable differnces

Gregory: who will get dumped in Commerce?

Axelrod: well he hates Harold Ford - so maybe him

Gregory: Dick Cheney says you love terrorists, hate America, and are too naive to electrify someone's testicles

Axelrod: so much to fun to hear from Dick again - no wonder people hate him so

Gregory: are you having fun being near-President

Axelrod: yeah but i have to stop watching cable tv - it's rotting my brain

Gregory: OMG Obama was the big winner of the week! And he was the Loser of the Week!!

Robinson: oh fer gawd's sake he got an $800 billion spending bill through Congress!!

Gregory: last Sunday everyone in D.C. wrote Obama off - did we speak too soon?

Brownstein: of course this is an amazing achievement - only the pundits could freak out because he didn't get enough GOP votes

Simon: Look Obama had a big win and Obama wins by being rejected by the GOP

Gregory: whoa that's crazy

Straseel: well now we see how the GOP will proceed - thanking Obama for reaching out to them and whining and crying to the media

Gregory: Obama believes in government and the GOP does not

Robinson: it's absurd and insane

Brownstein: for god's sake this week they voted for an alternative bill that would have cost more!!!

Gregory: but that's Bush's very successful policy - ha just kidding

Brownstein: right - we should have an election on that - ha ha

Strassel: no fair people love tax cuts and Obama is the real hypocrite for spending more

Greogry: oh?

Strassel: People are talking about the deficit - it's the next big story

Brownstein: which people?

Strassel: the people I hang out with

Brownstein: where's that?

Strassel: the Starbucks next door to teh Cato Institute

Simon: i hear you but for god's sake the debt is not the biggest problem right now

Robinson: people who have lost their jobs don't care about the fucking debt

Brownstein: obama has things he wants to achieve but also is willing to change tactics to get what he wants

Gregory: fascinating - he's the unBush!

Strassel: Obama failed but not working with liberals

Gregory: he got every vote in Congress

Strassel: but liberal bloggers still aren't happy

Simon: the bank bailout rewards bad behavior

Gregory: well i work for cable news so i can relate to to that

Simon: people hate this process

Gregory: yeah but the populists are wrong - we must reward the Fucktards

Robinson: we must punish the fucktards a little

Brownstein: the real choice America faces is between Japanese Models and Swedish Models

Gregory: plaid miniskirts or bikinis?

Brownstein: these are incredible times

Gregory: how come no one can make any money in America??

Simon: Even Biden thinks we might fail

BipartisanChip: What went wrong with your failed Presidency?

Obama: it's the fault of the Atwater-Gingrich-Rove Republicans -- dood I did everything I could to reach out to those lunatics and maybe someday they will stop acting like little babies and when that day comes my door will be open - until then I am the daddy and they are little kids and now it's time for Dad to go to work

Sen. John Kerry
Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchinson

Gregory: OMG the stimulus bill passed without GOP votes - its so sad!!

Kerry: we'll improve that bill with a massive ketchup tax break

Gregory: what else

Kerry: food stamps for people in tough straits like John Thain

Gregory: jobs?

Kerry: we will build a new electric griddle

Greogory: let me confront a Republican with the Concord Coalition

Hutchinson: thank you

Hutchinson: we can't afford this big spending what with all the debt we have!

Kerry: where did that from?

Hutchinson: Little goblins took over the government in 2001

Gregory: what spending would you like?

Hutchinson: Military spending - that's permanent unlike shitty bridges which once they're built - no more jobs!

Gregory: Dems are being greedy aren't they -- aren't they ramming through bad ideas like Bush did after 9/11?

Kerry: that's a very good point Gregory even though it is stupid i agree that it's inevitable that Dems ideas are good ideas

Gregory: huh?

Kerry: 50% of schools are 50 years old but I would remind you this is not ramming bills though it's called fucking Democracy and we just had a fucking election

Gregory: all well and good Senator Kerry but the issue here is that all bills but be approved by Republicans

Hutchinson: That is exactly right David - Exactly

Gregory: [ beams, wags tail ]

Hutchinson: who's a good boy??

Greogry: yip yip

Hutchinson: Tax cuts saved America in 2001

Gregory: no one knows the truth -- would you concede?

Hutchinson: oh yes

Kerry: like hell I would - Bush failed in every fucking way

Gregory: but but but-

Kerry: fuck off

Hutchinson: but tax cuts made people go back into the stock market in 2001!!

Kerry: oh yay

Hutchinson: we did have productive spending in the last few years - the war on terror, the war in Iraq

Kerry: Kay the economy sucks

Hutchinson: well that's the fault of the fancy people on Wall Street

Kerry: [ snort ]

Gregory: shovel-ready jobs?

Kerry: yes as long as we fix housing and the banks

Gregory: would you spend more to do it?

Hutchinson: sure but eliminate anything that helps people

Gregory: let me quote Rush Limbaugh issuing a challenge on who is a statesman and who is a reckless hack

Hutchinson: the bloated drug addict is right - there is nice spending that must be removed and tax cuts put in

Gregory: did you not hear the people on election day?

Hutchinson: i agree we need a new electric grill - but if Obama believes Republicans should get what they want he needs to give us what we want

Kerry: oh my god I haven't heard this much whining since my kids were toddlers

Kay: but but-

Gregory: isn't the stimulus bill a total failure if the GOP votes against it?

Kerry: moron

Gregory: bail out banks?

Hutchinson: yes but we should do it Obama's way and not the Stupid way

Gregory: fair enough

Hutchinson: sadly good people were caught in the net of bad loans

Gregory: buy toxic assets?

Kerry: no we should make the shareholders eat the loss

Gregory: oh so sad

Gregory: but whether you like this or not we can all agree we have to bail out the banks

Gregory: what about Sen. Jugg Gredd?

Hutchinson: No Democrats - Juggs would never do that!!

Gregory: what about Tom Daschle?

Kerry: I've known Tom for 25 years and he always picks up a check

Gregory: how shitty is the economy?

Zandi: really very very shitty

Gregory: Steve Ballmer said things really suck

Forbes: oh I disagree we can definitely rebound all we need to do is say "ain't" on tv

Burnett: we consumed like crazy for 25 years and that's gone forever - Generation Y sucks to be you

Gregory: let me go to the ultimate authority on teh economy - the Heritage Foundation - and now for contrast, steve forbes

Forbes: sure asset values have falled for instance my collection of fabrege eggs is worth less but we need to stop whining

Gregory: what's the solution

Forbes: Americans need to stop crying, show initiative and inherit a billion dollars from their weird gay dad

Gregory: well we can't all be Suri

Gregory: What's the answer?

Zandi: Tax cuts

Forbes: Spending alone isn't going to do it - you'll never guess what my answer is?

Greogry: lower income taxes?

Forbes: ha - no! Lower corporate taxes

Gregory: and mark to market

Forbes: so so so so sad

Gregory: why has Obama failed so much?

Burnett: the issue is not private jets - it's that we must bail out the banks or the economy will not grow

Gregory: so how can we help the banks?

Burnett: create a bad bank

Gregory: but we already have Citigroup

Gregory: but this could cost 2 trillion

Zandi: oh no only $500 billion

Gregory: oh is that all

Zandi: the government should buy the bad loans and get a good low price for it

Gregory: and hope and pray things will work out

Gregory: Obama got mad at all the Wall Street bonuses

Burnett: oh I get all so-called outrage and fake populism but you got to understand the people on Wall Street are doing their darndest!

Zandi: this is the risk of giving tax money cause then taxpayers want control which is just crazy - government can't make these decisions!

Gregory: this also applies to the national endowment for the arts right

Burnett: ha ha ha - no

Forbes: hey you take the money you pay the price

Burnett: this populism is very very scary - someone needs to tell the little people to hand over their tax money and shut the fuck up

This Week with George Stephanopoulos - February, 1, 2009

This Week with George Stephanopoulos
February, 1, 2009

Stephanopoulos: Buy American?

Schmidt: screw that - my grandma was a telephone operator and she lost her job to the PhoneBot 2000

Frank: There are British riots hating on Italians - they don't want them taking their Top Chef jobs

Stephanopoulos: that's not good for anyone

DeMint: i have a suggestion - let's cut taxes and regulations!!

Frank: oh yeah that's the problem - not enough regulations

DeMint: [ interrupts ] that's so gai

Frank: shut up ya neocon freak

DeMint: don't call it stimulus when it's government spending

Frank: but it is

DeMint: this is biggest spending ever in history

Frank: no that's the war in Iraq which is apparently free

Stephanopoulos: sorry we're not allowed to talk about that

Frank: well that's the problem isn't it?

FedEx: you have to understand that poor Wall Street types depend on bonuses but then again if you take taxpayer money you should probably not have a $1,400 wastebasket
