Beavis and Butt-head Was Already Taken

Dear Senators McConnell and Paul:

The big day is finally here! Beavis and Butt-head was already taken when I decided I was too filled with shame and dread to create a separate blog for you, Senator Paul, and Delusional Duo was, sadly, the most creative thing I came come up with. I went with bland. Although I prefer clever, bland felt appropriate.

Kentucky’s already embarrassing reputation suffered enough after you, Senator McConnell, spent the last two years waging your personal war on the United States, and taking the citizens of this country hostage through your unprecedented obstructionism, criminal level dishonesty*, shameful admission that you planned to do nothing other than make sure President Obama fails, and nonstop embarrassing television appearances. Adding the whiney, violent, corporate-owned, lobbyist-hiring, disgrace-to-medicine, junior who obviously knew his Hippocratic hypocrisy qualified him for a Republican seat should at least convince the rest of the country to stop laughing at us and start crying for us, since the actions of our Kentucky Senators will affect their lives in terribly depressing ways.

If there is an upside, it will be watching you, Senator McConnell, blink your eyes and suffer the frustration of being forced to swallow a bit of what you have forced on your constituents. (Karma can be fun.) From experience, I can tell you that dealing with a dishonest bully is not good for the spirit. Knowing that you are stuck working with someone who has absolutely no regard for the things that matter to you, and who will trample what you’ve worked for, is terribly uncomfortable. I’m anxious to see if you put up the same fight with Rand Paul that we have had to suffer with you. It’s a fatiguing position to be in.

Senator Paul, you get off easy this first week. I do not plan to point out each individual backtrack, deception, and waffle you have already made before getting to Washington. The media did a fairly decent job of that already. But I promise to do my best to keep up with every one in the future.

Instead, today, I am going to stick with the character defects that are more important, and that you have not addressed sufficiently with the people of Kentucky yet. As a physician, how could you stand a few feet away from the young girl whose head your hired thugs stomped and offer her no assistance? Why did you lie about her being a threat, and why did you lie about not knowing the men who hurt her? The only people who believe that you somehow failed to recognize the thugs you hired to work your campaign until after the media circulated the picture and pointed out that you had hired them are – well, people who will believe anything and who stand for nothing. Now that those thoughtless people believed your lies, fell for the deceptive ads your dirty money ran in their part of the state, and elected you, they are not the only people you represent or have to answer to. The rest of us will be waiting, not so patiently, for answers to these questions. And, until I receive answers, I will not let you, the AMA, or the public forget.

And, Senator Paul, while you are living with Daddy in Washington, maybe the two of you could discuss his thoughts about lying. Here is a link to his recent article, Lying is not Patriotic. In case, like Senator McConnell, you don’t like to read, here’s a video where he speaks about the same topic. I'm sure your father would include you among the people he does not want to lie.

Sincerely not celebrating,


*think Stevens, Ney, Foley, Reynolds, Gingrich, Cunningham, Abramoff, Feeney, Delay, etc. And feel free to add Clinton, since you must still be gloating over that ridiculous demonstration of duplicity.

p.s. I’m going to miss Leann Rimes


  1. I'd contact Google. You surely don't want to see a Michelle Bachmann PAC ad on your site, like I just did. It hurt my eyes.

  2. Thank you, Margaret. No, I don't want to see Michelle Bachmann anywhere. I can't imagine that the person who is paying for the ad would appreciate it being on a page where readers will surely never click on it, either.
