Weeks before the recent eruption in Alaska, Bobby Jindal, one-time Necropublican leadership hopeful mocked the Democrats’ intention to put money in the budget for “something called volcano monitoring” and now it comes out that Maine “moderate” Necro Senator Susan Collins forced them to remove money for flu pandemic preparation for her support of their stimulous package. Is there no reality they can’t prepare for? (I bet every fucking one of them is ready to Rapture, though!)
That was back in the old days, when Obama was hoping to get Necropublican support for things. As we’ve seen since, the Necropublicans have turned into the political equivalent of a sulking fourteen-year-old, and are not capable of anything but self-pity. One presumes the Dems are less afraid of filibusters now.
