So, I went to sign...

...this petition to tell Speaker of the House Boehner to end special tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires and to stop pushing America's economy to the brink of disaster by refusing to increase the debt ceiling (something that the republican leader in the senate admits would endanger the country and the president warned would interfere with the disbursement of social security checks). Not that my signature will make a difference. Boehner doesn't care about petitions--especially those that aren't from his own district (for more about Boehner please refer to Dikipedia).

But that's not really my point. My point is what happened after I got to the web site of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee to sign the petition.

That's when things got a little strange. See, today, everyone has a Facebook page, and often, people take screenshots of the people who "like" them to show prospective friends or fans just how popular they are. But is "Brian" really the "Facebook face" of the Democratic party?

Sure, lots of different folks out there and there's plenty of room for 'em all. Big tent and all that. But really?  I'm thinking the DCCC webmaster was told, "Okay, dude, just grab a typical screenshot of the people who like us, ermkay?" So, after a lunch of granola, yogurt, and perhaps some medical-grade marijuana, webmaster dude grabs a screenshot.

Cheers, Brian, for showing your Democratic colors. But get some rest and some Vitamin D for fuxxake--you look like shit.
