Gregory: hey Dick amazingly Harry Reid got 60 Dems to vote for something

Durbin: I know it’s crazy - but I still think Ben Nelson will find a way to fuck us

Gregory: Kay didn’t the Democrats fail last night?

Hutchinson: this is a terrible bill that adds to the deficit and we need to start all over and just do
what Republicans want

Gregory: Kay how can we stop this terrible bill?

Hutchinson: wave around pictures of Obama
as a Nazi Witch Doctor

Gregory: the bill raises taxes and kills kittens!

Feinstein: oh can it Fluffy

Gregory: [ high pitched voice ]
But the public option is bad!

Feinstein: the current system sucks and this
helps millions of people Greggers

Gregory: Holy Joe will you stop this bill

Lieberman: I voted for the bill so I could keep my Committee Chairmanships but I must filibuster
the public option

Gregory: why?

Lieberman: a public option will worsen our
current recession because it will add to debt decades from now

Gregory: wow that is bad

Lieberman: it will be very expensive and horrible and also everyone will enroll in it so it undermine the private insurers

Gregory: Holy Joe I have a question - does the Afghan war also have to be deficit neutral too?

Lieberman: oh yes

Gregory: but you voted for the all the wars anyway

Lieberman: because I’m the last honest man

Durbin: the public option is a good fucking
idea dammit

Gregory: ok let me be an advocate for the Republican party here - would be you willing
to drop the option in favor of a trigger?

Durbin: no

Gregory: you say no - but your eyes say yes

Feinstein: I heard you were moron

Gregory: will you pleeeeease vote against
a public option?

Feinstein: calm down Fluffy

Hutchinson: small business health plans
will solve everything

Gregory: and people say I’m a dolt

Gregory: this is higher taxes! And expanded entitlement!
[ looks in mirror, fluffs hair ]

Lieberman: helping poor people costs money - which is the worst thing ever in the history
of America

Gregory: didn’t you used to be a liberal?

Lieberman: this is a radical departure from free-market principles - we must trust the insurance companies!!

Durbin: [ leans over, punches Lieberman in the face ]

Lieberman: Ow!

Feinstein: thanks dick

GOP Congressman: Obama hasn’t fixed
the economy!

Geithner: hey dipshit Bush handed us a
fucking Depression

Gregory: should Geithner be fired?

Lieberman: no - we should deny people health insurance: that will turn the American economy around!

Feinstein: California is a total basket case

Audience: electing a bodybuilder Governor sure seems like a good idea now doesn’t it

Feinstein: we need high speed rail so politicians
can get out of town fast when the riots begin

Gregory: good idea

Hutchinson: Obama was sworn in January
and there is still high unemployment and the cause is the debt!!

Gregory: you’re joking

Hutchinson: Health care! Debt! Word Salad!

Gregory:[waves foam finger] Fire Tim Geithner!!!

Hutchinson: Fluffy will you shut the fuck up I want to bash the Obama stimulus!

Feinstein: Goddammn Fluffers you are an idiot

Gregory: is Obama dithering on our Glorious Invasion of Afghanistan??

Lieberman: if we fail to pour thousands of troops into a far-off desert land it will destabilize the area

Gregory: will you leave your brain to science fiction?

Gregory: is Charles Krauthammer right about
Eric Holder and KSM?

Feinstein: you are a true dimwit, aren’t you

Gregory: but isn’t this a show trial?

Feinstein: no it isn’t Stupid

Gregory: but he told to his employees
'not to fail' which is the height of fascism!!

Durbin: Failure is an Option every week on Meet the Press

Hutchinson: every freedom-loving country in the world needs to know that that we are willing to torture terrorists, hold people without trial, invade other nations, and beg NATO to do it all for us

Gregory: what about these mammogram guidelines?

Feinstein: if you object well then get the test

Hutchinson: this is rationing which never happens in the USA because insurers always cover everything

Gregory: of course

This Week with George Stephanopoulos - November 22, 2009

November 22, 2009
Guests:
Sen. Ben Nelson
Sen. Tom Coburn
Rep. Wasserman-Schultz
Rep. Blackburn
***************************
Stephanopoulos: Ben Nelson can you live with
the health reform bill or will you kill yourself
if it’s enacted

Nelson: no I hate it but Harry Reid threatened me

Stephanopoulos: how?

Nelson: he would have read the entire bill to me and that was more than I could handle

Stephanopoulos: Crazy Tom you promised to read the whole bill out loud - why did you cave in?

Coburn: I can’t read

Coburn: the problem with health care is that people have too much health which costs too much

Nelson: the Republican is right

Stephanopoulos: what a diverse panel this is!

Coburn: This is bill is fascist! Why do specialists make more money than primary care?? It’s just
like Dachau!!

Wasserman-Schultz: yes because everyone at Dachau had good health care and were mostly worried about the skyrocketing premiums

Coburn: that’s what I heard

Wasserman-Schultz: with all due respect did you
go to school in the Caribbean?

Coburn: I am an verteran of the great Grenada Lebanon Distraction War

Blackburn: this is government takeover of
health care and also it fails because there is no malpractice reform

Wasserman-Schultz: Medicare is pretty successful

Blackburn: sure, if you’re fan of Hitler!

Wasserman-Schultz: Hey dumbass this plan covers people and saves money

Stephanopoulos: Ben Nelson you’re one of
the Democrats who oppose the public option for no reason

Nelson: because it’s fascism - which is fine for Massachusetts but not Nebraska

Stephanopoulos: so you will vote against it
if it has a public option

Nelson: no I will oppose it for many other reasons!

Stephanopoulos: what’s the real reason Ben
- be honest

Nelson: it undermines the private insurers

Coburn: name one government agency that
works well

Stephanopoulos: Medicare, Veterans health, the CDC, the Pentagon-

Coburn: that’s a government-centered approach

Stephanopoulos: -to government

Coburn: indeed we should turn over all military affairs to private contractors

Stephanopoulos: I thought we did

Coburn: Medicare denies care all the time
- this bill establishes a Department of Death Panels and Killing Grandparents

Stephanopoulos: that could be controversial

Blackburn: on page 1,200 of the health bill it bans all mammograms - it’s amazing!!!

Wasserman-Schultz: oh that’s bullshit

Blackburn: these conveniently timed Bush-era recommendations are outrageous!

Coburn: I can’t believe a bureaucracy would decide what is covered under insurance!

Nelson: I agree - insurers are some of the most wonderful people I know whereas all bureaucrats spend their days dreaming of killing people

Stephanopoulos: but if you don’t have some guidelines how do control costs?

Nelson: I want to save costs - I just don’t want the rules to be applied to white people in Nebraska

Blackburn: Obama’s czar is going to be in
the exam room!

Wasserman-Schultz: we haven’t discussed the insurance companies rationing at all

Blackburn: sure they’re evil - but they make money and we need that in America

Stephanopoulos: Tom Coburn I know your insanity is a sore subject but people say you were a party
to corruption

Coburn: that’s a lie

Stephanopoulos: you didn’t serve as an intermediary with Ensign and his crazy family?

Coburn: oh that - yeah I did that - but only because I’m such a nice guy

Stephanopoulos: I can see that

Coburn: you don’t know what it’s like in the Republican Senate caucus - I’m obsessed with lesbians in high school bathroom and I’m considered the normal one

Stephanopoulos: wow

Gregory: Hi Hillary

Clinton: morning Fluffy

Gregory: Secretary Clinton why would we enforce the rule of law against really bad people?

Clinton: Greggers New York City isn’t afraid to try these people and bring them to justice

Gregory: but having super-terrorists in New York City is so scary!

Clinton: Calm down Fluffy - I don’t how it works
in California but here in New York our jails have locks and everything

Gregory: speaking of being terrified of brown swarthy terrorists - why haven’t you closed
Gitmo yet?

Clinton: we want to leave it nice so we’re painting and mowing the lawn first

Gregory: makes sense

Gregory: I hear Obama is considering invading Afghanistan

Clinton: maybe

Gregory: Jill Eikenberry says sending more troops to Afghanistan could backfire

Clinton: you mean Karl Eikenberry

Gregory: him too

Clinton: we need to defeat al-qaeda

Gregory: ok

Clinton: and also the Taliban

Gregory: right

Clinton: so we can’t leave until the Afghan government has defeated the Taliban on its
own and rules a peaceful nation

Gregory: what’s the deal with Hamid Karzai

Clinton: on the plus side he’s a handsome man
and a snappy dresser - on the other hand he’s a power-hungry megalomaniac

Gregory: just like Donald Trump

Clinton: look Bush completely fucked up
this country

Gregory: yes Afghanistan is in really bad shape

Clinton: I meant the U.S.

Gregory: oh

Clinton: I don’t think I can overstate how hated George Bush was around the world and frankly he dropped the ball on Bin Laden along with everything else he touched

Gregory: Obama is going to pay homage to
Our Chinese Overlords

Clinton: you know when my husband Bill was President we almost eliminated the debt and since then Stupid wasted 2 trillion dollars so it’s up to Obama and me to fix all his mistakes

Gregory: how do we combat the wily orientals?

Clinton: sure we’re rivals but we have a common enemy who presents a threat to the stability of the whole world

Gregory: North Korea?

Clinton: Sarah Palin

Gregory: She wants to have coffee with you

Clinton: it would be fascinating to meet someone who’s never read a newspaper before

Gregory: will you read her book?

Clinton: I will if she does

Gregory: can her brand of Crazy take over the GOP?

Clinton: I sure hope so

[ break ]

Gregory: OMG it’s such a cute odd couple - Newt Gingrich and Al Sharpton are going to come up with a bipartisan solution to failing education in America!

Gregory: Newt and Al - both of you are widely disliked - so thank you for coming on my show today

Gingrich: right on

Sharpton: dude!

[ fist bump each other ]

Gregory: people say America doesn’t manufacture anything anymore Arne but you say we have excellent Dropout Factories

Duncan: that’s right - we want achievement and to raise the bar and remove firewalls

Gregory: those are some very inspiring clich├ęs

Duncan: we must challenge the status quo, go outside our comfort zones and hope for change

Gingrich: this is the civil right of the 21st century

Duncan: we need good schools

Gregory: interesting

Gingrich: some schools are poor and violent and that’s bad

Sharpton: the poor and minorities are really getting screwed by our failing schools

Gregory: Newt you wanted to rid of the Department
of Education

Gingrich: in an ideal world every child would get
a Pell grant and buy their education on the open free market

Sharpton: hell parents have failed as well

Gregory: have we achieved anything?

Sharpton: we have succeeded in getting Newt
and me back on tv!

Gregory: since the teachers unions are evil why should we believe that a liberal will enforce accountability?

Duncan: if there was real accountability Rachel Maddow would take your job Fluffy

Gregory: what if teachers lie to you?

Duncan: I could kiss their ass like you do

Gingrich: the teachers union is responsible for
kids going to prison

Sharpton: we also need parents involved

Gregory: now wait just a minute - I invited you here
to bash teachers unions not for some debate about education

Sharpton: I heard back in Harlem you were a moron

Gingrich: Al Sharpton and I can inspire the whole world with our bipartisanship attention-seeking

Gregory: Are our teachers just stupid and should we have a West Point of Teachers?

Duncan: hard-working, service, public service,
blah blah blah

Gingrich: Jefferson said self-knowledge is vital

Gregory: Thomas Jefferson?

Gingrich: no George Jefferson - in the Hawaii episode

Gregory: that is so wise

Gingrich: the damm kids need discipline for the first time in their lives!

Sharpton: I never knew I was underprivileged because my mother taught me right

Gregory: Should we have a national failed curriculum?

Gingrich: no because some districts want to
teach kids that Adam and Eve rode dinosaurs to meetups with blond haired blue-eyed Republican tax-cutting Jesus

Stephanopoulos: Ambassador Eikenberry says more troops will hurt the effort

Clinton: we’re going to defeat al-qaeda dammit!

Stephanopoulos: didn’t we do that already?

Clinton: yes but they’re very wily - they have
ties to the unsavory elements of the indigenous people there

Stephanopoulos: Hamid Karzai?

Clinton: The Taliban

Stephanopoulos: Karzai is pretty corrupt isn’t he?

Clinton: it’s ok we’re going to get a Official Certification that he’s only to spend money

Giuliani: yes - I plan to lose to Andrew Cuomo
next year

Stephanopoulos: you praised federal trials for terrorists before the GOP went full-in crazy

Giuliani: oh no no but you see a fair trial will take too long - plus there is a risk that they might be found not guilty and we can’t take that chance

Stephanopoulos: ah

Giuliani: also this sends a wrong message - that
we are not at war with random crazy people everywhere like Al-Qaeda, the Taliban, and U.S. Army Major Hasan

Stephanopoulos: are you saying Major Hasan was a foreign soldier who declared war on the U.S.?

Giuliani: yes - he had novelty business cards that said “Soldier of God”!

Stephanopoulos: to be fair Mike Huckabee
has those too

Casey: Fluffy we really don’t know what happened

Gregory: but he hated our wars!

Rendell: wow that’s stupid

Gregory: but he’s doing too much

Rendell: that’s silly

Gillespie: we have learned from the mistakes of the Bush administration that Obama is a bad President

Dionne: oh wait I just remembered something about Afghanistan - we’re totally fucked there

Maddow: except for not covering women

Gillespie: the bill uses the word “shall” and of course we can’t have government mandating things

Dionne: Reagan said Medicare was terrible - in 50 years Gillespie will sing the praises of Pelosi-care

Gillespie: under Obamacare I won’t live that long!

Maddow: the Republican plan really would wreck the economy - no one ever mentions that because they’re so worthless

too much making sick people well

or props today

Kaine: who do I look like Carrot Top?

Steele: [ waves foam finger ] it’s off the hook!

Stephanopoulos: Last night the House passed a health care billt

Kaine: Teddy Roosevelt wanted this bill and he was a big white hunting Republican

Steele: the problem with this bill is that is gives the government power and the U.S. government is evil

Kaine: ok

Steele: it’s a trick to debate late on a Saturday night - I mean we Republicans were all watching
Taylor Swift on NBC!

Kaine: we had months of debate idiot

Steele: no not really - we sent Obama a letter in April telling him to adopt GOP ideas and we never heard back from him

Kaine: are you sure you sent it to the White House?

Steele: we addressed it to “That Kenyan-Muslim Usurper, The Reagan House, Pennsylvania avenue”

Steph: are you the party of “No”

Face the Nation with Joe Lieberman - November 1, 2009

Face the Nation
November 1, 2009
Guest: Sen. Joe Lieberman (CFL-CT)
************************

Schieffer: Holy Joe thanks for coming

Lieberman: thank you very much Bob

Schieffer: So the Democrats may pass health care reform public option - what do you think?

Lieberman: I’m all for health care reform but we have to worry about the state of the economy in 20 years and a public option might help people and save lives in the short term but in the long run it will run up the debt and destroy America

[ shakes jowls vigorously ]

Schieffer: but most people like it

Lieberman: sure they do but this crazy idea
that people deserve health care just came
out of nowhere!

Schieffer: Liberals say we need it to save lives

Lieberman: true but we must be ready to kill the many to save the few who make our incredibly
fragile economy the envy of the world

Schieffer: will you filibuster a public option?

Lieberman: I will - I must stop this horrific idea
that the government would create an entitlement
for health care

[begins weeping]

Schieffer: you think people are not entitled to
decent health care?

Lieberman: not if they are not as wonderful as I am

Schieffer: is anyone in America as terrific as you?

Lieberman: touchdown Jesus

Schieffer: but your filibuster could kill all health
care reform

Lieberman: oh no I’m not the one who would
do that - those horrible people who push for the public option are -- they are mean and say if you
are not for the government insurance you must
be a bad person

[ starts crying ]

Schieffer: would rather have no reform at all
than a government-run insurance program

Lieberman: yes - because the public plan will be
so very expensive that no one will enroll in it which will be bad because it will be too unpopular and
also it will run up the debt and raise taxes when everyone enrolls

Schieffer: this has nothing to do with the $400,000 you got this year alone from insurance companies

Lieberman: oh no no no I hate insurance companies

Schieffer: really?

Lieberman: yeah I even pretended I would remove their anti-trust exemption

[ wipes tears]

Schieffer: will you stop crying

Lieberman: this takes us down a road America has never gone down before - America providing health care to its citizens is a nightmare scenario

[sobs]

Schieffer: you also want to put more troops in Afghanistan even though their government is
totally corrupt

Lieberman: Oh no no Karzai is the Last Honest Man in Afghanistan - our troops need to believe in his inherent goodness

Schieffer: you’re like a jowly Rush Limbaugh

Lieberman: no I actually don't believe Obama despises America or fakes his compassion
for the troops

Schieffer: golly you’re such a moderate
