A couple of weeks ago I posted what I thought were the top 15 satire headlines (check them out here if you missed them). Since I wrote hundreds I thought I would come up with a list of the top 15 honorable mentions. So here they are in no particular order.

We all know that the real reason liberals are hopping mad about the Tea Parties is that it calls public attention to the taxpayers dissatisfaction with how our politician's money is spent. I know I know...the nerve of it all...good thing Rachel Maddow is there to call them Tea Baggers! That'll make them go away.
In any case, if liberals wanted to have a party of their own I suspect it would go something like....Add a comment
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night
let me try that again......
Merry Christmas to all...except for 60 constitution usurping schmucks...all
60 59 of which shall remain nameless.
I guess this is really a lesson to us all, we get the government we ask for. I'm already shopping for next years Christmas present to myself....finding ways to get these people out of office.
Public opinion was against this passing, not one honest account of the cost showed that the bill will actually reduce cost or the deficit. This Christmas the Democratic Party has just shoved a huge lump of coal down all our throats.
This is not over yet. We now need regurgitate that coal and shove it back in their faces like the dogs they are going number 2 on Uncle Sam's favorite rug....and then we need to make sure that when the dust does finally settle we the people are the last man standing.Add a comment

Having a firm grasp on what tragedy really is (9-11 is on his turf after all) Senator Chuck(y) Schumer of New York really hit the nail on the head with this missed opportunity where a flight attendant had the nerve to tell one of the senators of Olympus to turn off his phone during take off like the rest of us dirty civilians.
For doing her job she was called a 5-letter word that starts with a "b" and rhymes with "Nancy Pelosi" (after coming down from the Botox party high).
I know this is really pretty old news at this point, but I'm not writing to bitch about Senator Schmucker so much as the revelation that can be gleaned from the outburst.
"It’s Harry Reid calling,...I guess health care will have to wait until we land." ... oh the humanity....Add a comment
When he's not taking a break from participating in the Copenhagen Private Jet show (where I hear Al Gore won best-in-show for his jet for emitting fuel exhaust AND his own rhetoric into the atmosphere) to attend climate conference that will decide how the rest of the unwashed masses...and ONLY us...need to conserve energy in order to combat what has become the biggest farce in human history since believing the world was flat and the sun revolved around us (at least the excuse of people back then was pride AND ignorance) Obama and congress are showing the drunken sailors that the GOP were from 2000-2006 how spending money really gets done.
This nonsense has to stop. When are the adults finally going to takeover our country? Does ANYONE run their own financial house the way congress runs our checkbook?
I've stopped wondering what they're thinking....I'm over that...now I just want to know if they're thinking at all. Do they really think money grows on trees?

I hope you enjoy this, if so share it with your friends, we can all use a good laugh at the expense of the party in power. There are many more that I wanted to include but I really wanted to limit it to 15. So I’m planning on putting together a list of honorable mentions sometime next week.
Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!Add a comment
I won't bother posting the video since you may have seen or heard about it....but if you haven't its right have not it you can find it here.
A lot of people want to say he is getting desperate making the comparison universal health opponents would keep slavery. A lot of people are wrong....because its an insult to desperation. Starving refugees in Darfur are desperate, high school nerds looking for a prom date are desperate, if Paris Hilton ever filled out a job application...THAT would be a superb example of using the word "desperate."
Senator Harry Reid is not desperate, he is one of the dumbest men in America today. Ranking, in my humble opinion, somewhere between zebra snot and Kevin Federline.
If Dirty Brain Harry wants really go down that road then the GOP should accuse the Democrats of feeling the same way in regards to their refusal to do anything to save Social Security....which is in a real crisis in need of serious governmental reform. Nobody says it though...BECAUSE ONLY IDIOTS DO THAT!
Furthermore I really really REALLY want to know what kind of "slavery" Reid thinks he's saving the country from in imposing the kind of healthcare system countries like Canada has on us?
If you have Internet explorer this little illustration may not work when you roll the "magic" parts of it, so you should use these links, I would say sorry I killed the magic...but really its Microsofts fault.
This guy and the 59 other pompous asses that voted to debate this bill fail to understand that the system they are setting up is nothing less than slavery itself. Its actually worse, because unlike the slavery in the south this will be a system the people will find themselves perilously addicted to.Add a comment
