Look at That Stupid Bastard

No, not McCain, I mean his chief economic advisor Phil Gramm. Yep, Gramm, another hen-eyed, yammering East Texas hick said on Thursday that, "The economy is not in bad shape, Americans are just a bunch of whiners."

Gas is at more than $4 a gallon.
Airlines are going bankrupt.
Unemployment is growing by the week.
The cost of wheat, milk and eggs are skyrocketing.
Mortgages are facing record foreclosures.
The Middle Class is slipping down the polluted river.

But Gramm thinks we're all just whining.
What a fucking turd this guy is. He doesn't worry about what things cost; as a former U.S. Senator from Texas, we can assume he's set for life from all the payola and graft he caged while he was in office.
Phil Gramm has a Ph.D. in economics, so he's called Dr. Phil Gramm.
Obama denounced his blase claim that Americans were just whiners by saying "America already has one Dr. Phil, we don't need another."
Hackneyed pop culture reference aside, McCain replied that Obama was just "being Dr. No."
Dr. Phil? Dr. No?
I wish they'd both quit trying to be witty- it's just not working for either of these stiffs.
McCain went on to distance himself from Gramm's insensitive remarks, yet we should all bear in mind that Gramm has the inside track on being a major player in a McCain presidency.

Aren't you sick of all these GOP retreads their presidential candidates keep dredging up?
How many fucking times must we endure the likes of Gramm and Cheney and Gingrich and Rumsfeld and the rest of these crusty old bozos who all peaked in the 80's?

As a Texan, I warned all of you about Bush way before he became the president and I was right.
Well, hear me now and believe me later: Phil Gramm is a crooked, lying prick. His nasal voice and cornpone accent are enough to trigger mass fist fights. He's arrogant, a know-it-all and, like most Republicans, totally clueless about the average American taxpayer.

He's Doctor No Fucking Way.

Some noted Phil Gramm quotes, just in case you don't believe me when I say he's a prick:

"Has anyone ever noticed that we live in the only country in the world where all the poor people are fat?"

"We're going to keep on building the Texas Republican Party until we're hunting Democrats with dogs."

"If you are willing to tackle the tough issues, you don’t need to worry about stepping on anyone’s toes; they will stand aside and shove you to the front.”

"I have as many guns as I need, but I don't have as many guns as I want."

"We have sort of become a nation of whiners. You just hear this constant whining, complaining about a loss of competitivenes."

Karen.... WHAT IS THE DEAL WITH REPUBLICANS IN TEXAS????? the village idiot shrub, Phil Gramm, John Cornyn, Kay Bee, Tom Delay, Rick Perry, etc., etc. What happened to the likes of Anne Richards, Lloyd Benson, LBJ??? You know well my ties with the Lone Star State, but honestly, present-day Texas politic(ian)s make me violently ill!!! Any hope on the horizon?

Liberality said...

His chief economic adviser?!? Ha, ha, ha, ha! Let's tar and feather those babies and run them out on a rail. They both are dressed for the party as far as I can see! More peas in a pod--distance himself my foot--just look at 'em!

Lulu Maude said...

Brettinpdx--Why are you asking about what happened to Ann Richards after asking what's with Texas Republicans? Ann, LBJ, etc.--none of them were Republicans.

Don't mix up the country club with a sensitivity training center.

dguzman said...

I think Brettinpdx meant that TX used to produce great dems; now it just keeps cranking out the repug wackjobs.

Man, I've hated Phil "Hound Dog" Gramm even longer than I've hated Chimpy. And that's a long time.

bigsis said...

Wow Zip, you said it all perfectly.

And both of these tired old farts are trying to say its all in our minds. McCain: "...a lot of our problems today...are psychological - the confidence, trust, the uncertainty about our future..." After the whiner remark Gramm went on to say "you've heard of mental depression; this is a mental recession."

As a proud Texan I'm begging everyone not to vote for another Texan for any national office. And don't look for them because there are no Texas Democrats on the horizon either. Kirk Watson was a hopeful but he dug his own grave with his lips.

One of the absolute worst Texas politicians is Sen. John Cornyn.
What a phony, wife cheating, Bush BFF piece of garbage.

Please take a look at this clown's reelection commercial video:
Hard to believe, but this is one of his actual reelection ads.

Now look at his Democratic opponent Rick Noreiga's answer to it-priceless:

I so wish Texans Ann Richards LBJ and Henry B. Gonzalez were back with us in their primes--they'd take this current batch of GOP sociopathic liars and cut them to ribbons.

Dusty said...

I hope Phil the Fuckwit Gramm whined today when the Dow took that huge shit.

It would really make my day to think that he did. ;)

I am evil that way.

FranIAm said...

Whiny asshat- Gramm that is, not you honey.

I am too tired to make much sense.

bigsis said...

I'm ashamed to admit I worked for John Cornyn at one time (I was at the agency first). He is by far the lowest form of politician I've ever personally encountered, and I've worked for a lot of politicians. The saying "if his lips are moving, he's lying" describes John Cornyn perfectly.

HEADS UP: He's always said he wants to run for President some day!

Cornyn's nickname in college was "Bimbo". Hmmmmmm
