GOP pounces on God, Jerusalem in Demo platform

Rip Roarin' reading match in tv land - yowza

NOW we're getting somewhere. - Dr. Hannibal Lecter

Charlotte – Republican strategists are swinging for the fences to attract the Jewish and white working class vote that forms the traditional base of the Democratic Party in national elections.

Mitt Romney and his handlers “pounced” on the fact that the Democratic National platform included only language that demands an unswerving commitment to the security of Israel. The Republicans demanded a statement to the effect that Jerusalem is and will remain the capital of Israel, and an undivided city open to people of all faiths.

Done, said President Barack Hussein Obama.


They didn't stop squawking until President Obama further instructed party functionaries – who were at pains to remain anonymous with the ladies and gentlemen of the media because they are not authorized to talk about such lofty policy issues – intervened, saying he wondered why there was no mention of God in the 2010 platform.

They immediately reverted to language used in the 2008 platform of the Party of Jefferson.

There came a quick change that said “we need a government that stands up for the hopes, values and interests of working people and gives everyone willing to work hard the chance to make the most of their God-given potential.”

That ought to hold them.

Hopefully, all that will include something besides minimum wage and multinational corporations that abscond to foreign headquarters with the pension funds people worked hard to earn.

Meanwhile, back at El Rancho Grande, a suburban Phoenix hospital, unsatisfied with what has been paid for its emergency services, is dunning a woman for a balance of about $25,000 after her insurance carrier paid $57,000 for treatment of a scorpion sting.

Most of the charges attached to her $83,000 bill consisted of two doses of anti-venom - at nearly $40,000 per dose.

Whew! Wait awhile. There's more.

Reportedly, certain GOP operatives began immediately to berate the President as “weak” for caving in to the demands of the Party of Lincoln. Such a deal.

If we only had an internet hook-up with that Oakland station, we could watch “Roller Derby” and “Elvira.” Clint would approve. He earns a lot of residuals from that outfit by the Bay.
