"I just found out a couple of days ago that the Republican National Convention’s theme this year is “We Built It” (I know, I’m shocked as shit too that it’s not “Old, Rich White Dudes Fucking America in the Ass by Convincing Ignorant Rednecks to Vote for Them, Even Though it’s Epically Stupid”), which they chose, no doubt, to fully take advantage of the unwarranted hoopla surrounding President Obama’s unfortunate choice of vocabulary while describing the fairly obvious and unexciting notion that we are supported by a strong public infrastructure. What’s super hilarious about all of this is that they are holding it in a Tampa stadium that’s construction was PUBLICLY funded to the tune of $86 million. Basically, they’re just proving what we already know; a strong public foundation makes successful private endeavors possible.Without public schools, libraries, parks, roads, bridges, police, firefighters et al, a brilliant business idea would amount to fuck on a bun. Why is that so hard to understand for these Objectivist Wing Nuts? What makes this simple idea so seemingly toxic to them? I’ll tell you what. Pure, unadulterated selfishness, hauteur, and a ridiculously inflated sense of importance. Their fragile little egos can’t take the suggestion that it’s not just their devastating brilliance or unyielding work ethic that made them successful.Mittens Romney is now gallivanting all over the country saying that, “when a child makes the honor roll, I don’t credit the bus driver for that accomplishment.” That’s a thinly veiled way of saying, “fuck all the little people because they really don’t matter. They’re just stepping stones for us ‘movers and shakers.’” I bet if said bus driver pounded a fifth of Old Crow and drove the bus off of one of those publicly-funded bridges he’d start to think they mattered.As if Mitt’s kids ever had to take the public fucking school bus, anyway. Pfft."

Duchess St. Rollins' Daily Affirmation: JUST IN TIME FOR THE REPUG CONVENTION!
SHE'S BAAAACK BY POPULAR DEMAND (HITS) ... MORE WORDS OF WISDOM SLEDGE-HAMMERIN' THE TEABILLIES from the Duchess, in her INIMITABLE style! Here the Duchess schools Repugnants and Teabillies with a sharp-edged ruler and a Tea-whackin' whip. (Come to think of it, she ought to turn some of her well-reasoned wrath on that nauseating cretin David Gregory, High Priest of the Beltway Media/Idiot Punditocracy.)
