Ode to Pat Toomey

Credit: Clowns Can B Scary 2
Pat Toomey Clownishly Prefers to default on the national debt? That is scary! Let’s hope that’s a hoax.
watch the video

"Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.), presented his theory to the American Enterprise Institute on Wednesday. The government won’t really default on Aug. 2, and, even if it did, things wouldn't be so bad."

When our would be leaders play tricks with the truth,

What will become of the idealism of youth?

If facts are not honored but subject to choice,

How will we ever speak with one voice?

If those appointed to know raise an alarm in response to the test

While elected rivals dismiss their concerns as a jest,

What will become of our country, our children and all of the rest?

Any of us with a smidgen of sense see the peril that looms,

However, partisans prevaricate in crowded speech rooms.

As economic catastrophe hurtles our way,

“No need to worry” these mountebanks say.

When we go to the polls and use the franchise,

For the love of our country, don’t be tricked by these lies!

Each time we vote in the spring and the fall,

We vote for our children, for our country, for each and for all.

With oodles of money, clever slogans and endless snake oil,

Too many candidates seek and speak only to foil.

They crave the power and run for office again and again,

Yet they don’t give a damn what danger we’re in!

We’ll have another chance in Two Thousand Twelve,

Let’s return these miscreants to the seventh layer of Hell.

Thanks to Dana Milbank of the Washington Post for his superb expose of this egregiously compulsive liar.

Cher,

PT is an scar on the Senate and a canker sore on Pennsylvania's body politic. These may seem like crude and extreme statements. Perhaps they are, but I do believe they are the plain and brutal truth.

Like to many of his fellow Republicans his callousness knows few bounds and his ignorance is unplumbed in its depths. When one is 21st century Know Nothing, riding a tide of anti-immigrant, anger fueled rage, one can also be a say anything. Ignorance as the saying goes is bliss, but it is also a threat to civility, sound thinking, and responsible governance.

P T is down with all that!

Thanks as always.

Larry

All of congress should have to go on the show," I'm not smarter than a fifth grader."

More from the Odious Pat Toomey -

Tell Sen. Pat Toomey: Stop putting oil company profits and campaign contributions ahead of the American people. Click here to automatically sign the petition.

This mountebank must be convincingly reminded that he represents the human beings residing in the Commonwealth of PA and not the corporations who lavish funds on his sorry behind.
