Margaret & Helen Are Back

It’s an election year and the campaign is getting red hot! The heat brings Margaret and Helen out of hibernation and I’m so glad to have them back.

"Good Lord, where did the Republican Party dig us these idiots?” [Helen Philpot, of Margaret & Helen Blog]

Hooray! Good old Helen Philpot is back out of her long lay-off and she is giving the Republicans hell again.

“Margaret,” Helen wrote yesterday, “tell Howard he is full of shit!”

That’s my girl. Helen sort of took Margaret and disappeared for just the longest time and their blog went for months without any entries. Now, beginning slowly late in the past year, they’ve emerged from hibernation – brought out of their hole by the coming election – and they are giving the Republicans hell again.

Oh, boy! I feel like a new man and I’m as happy as hell. Helen is wound up and ready to tell it like it is (which is the only way she knows how to do it).

I was so worried when their blog dried up. I had terrible imaginings that Helen was ill and unable to write (and I even thought things might be more final that that), but she seems like her old self in that blog of hers of yesterday (2 Feb 2012).

Who, for instance, can say it any better than this?...

“Despite what Gingrich wants you to think, Obama isn’t a Socialist. I doubt most of the Gingrich voters even know the definition of socialism. After all, it has three more letters in it than Muslim. I do know this – taxes piss everyone off. Nobody likes to be taxed. But we all kind of like our roads, schools, healthcare, national security, law enforcement, energy… Those things represent the majority of what our taxes go to. And speaking of majority, the majority of welfare recipients are children. You know, those precious little bundles of life that the Republican base likes to ignore once the cord is cut.”

Oh, my, oh my! I’m leaping for joy and my heart is pumpin’ and my corpuscles are jumpin’ this morning. Go get ‘em, Helen, and don’t let up on ‘em, girl!

“Three cheers for Virginia State Senator Janet Howell who gave the Old White Guys a taste of their own medicine. Virginia law makers are trying to pass their own version of the Texas law that requires a woman to have an ultrasound before terminating a pregnancy. Good ‘ole Senator Howell added an amendment that would require men to have a rectal exam and a cardiac stress test before obtaining a prescription for erectile dysfunction medication. I like how that lady thinks. Considering most of them have their head up their ass, a finger up the butt just might knock some sense into their brain.”

Hoooray! Helen is back and it’s just in the nick of time. No right wing nutcase is safe now!

All of you, you be sure now to start following Margaret & Helen! Carefully bookmark the blog where you can always find it.

And check out Helen's blog of a couple of weeks ago on Newt Gingrich. It is absolutely precious! Precious!
