If you don’t recognize this saying I confess to borrowing it from a wonderful Broadway show entitled “The Best Little Whore House in Texas.” The full line, which was delivered by a wily old sheriff, went something like this: Quit pissing on my boots and calling it raindrops.” Whenever the endless stream of Republican clap trap starts to get me down, I invoke the pissing imagery to ward off insanity. Sometimes it works.

I needed it, big time, a couple of weeks ago while watching Paul Ryan on Morning Joe. In a discussion of his draconian budget proposal he said that the tax code shouldn’t be used to pick winners and losers.

WTF!! Maybe what he meant to say was that the tax code should only pick winners. Everyone else can fight for the rest of the pie.

Bullshit to you, Congressman.
