March of the Scumbags - 67 Billion Reasons to Vote Democratic

The House of Reprehensibles in Tallahassee (motto - "A Phallic Capitol to Illustrate Our Need to Fuck the Voters") has managed to sign off on a $67 billion budget that succeeds in ensuring that the deficit hole gets closed, at the cost of sacrificing old people to lonely deaths in dingy flophouses.

Or, as St. Petersburg Democrat Darryl Rouson asked, (rhetorically, one assumes),"How long will blinded justice in the form of cuts cloud the future vision of this great state and drive bright-eyed wisdom from her sacred throne?"

Quite a while, Darryl. See, you and your entire caucus voted against the bill, but it didn't matter. The Republican "wouldn't raise taxes if our lives depended on it" caucus has an absolute majority, and the Dems can't manage to get a fart enacted if the GOP doesn't allow it.

Still, one can't fault the GOP for being consistent - consistently wrong, that is.

Taxes are part of the deal if you want government. As Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes put it, "With taxes, I buy civilization."
