Stimulating the soapbox

I haven't posted much on politics since the election (with the exception of emphasizing Sarah Palin's stupidity) because I want this to be a fun blog. Politics can get serious real fast, even when parodying. But, I felt the need to comment on recent events with the economy and the recent stimulus package. I'll try to be brief and to the point:

After spending $596,690,000,000 (and growing) on the Iraq war and cutting tax rebate checks for every American, how dare Republicans and fiscal conservatives preach frugalness and criticize wasteful spending!!

(BTW, that $596 billion figure is from THE COST OF WARwebsite.) Take a look in the mirror, Repubies. I just don't understand how someone in good conscience can turn a blind eye to an extremely wasteful situation like the war spending, then turn-around to chastise the new stimulus plan as a bad idea.
"The bill that was about jobs, jobs, jobs has turned into a bill that's about spending, spending, spending,"
You know, because trying to keep people in their homes and give them jobs is such a waste. Somebody needs to remind selfish GOP "conservatives" about The New Deal.

What am I saying? The U.S. is about dropping bombs and killing people for oil, not spending money on Socialism, right?
