Well, Mitt Romney has thrown in the towel. This probably proves that on the right he was the best candidate for the job. He knew enough to depart without pissing good money after bad, and that’s a lesson all our politicians would be well advised to partake of. You kind of had to feel for the guy after West Virginia. I mean, what was done there was a do over. Put in football terms, after the Huckabee Patriots got their asses handed to them by the Romney Giant’s, They called the McClain scumsucking lying geriatric fuckwits (kind of lost my football motif their, but you get the idea) and borrowed a couple of linebackers and a running back. The refs allowed this, and with more men on the field Huckabee beats Romney. What kind of a halfwitted system is that? I know in-breeding is common in Appalachia, but I had no idea the incest ran into their politics.
The biggest problem for conservatives with Romney getting out of the race is simply he had the only chance left of beating McCain. Romney at least won in states where a Republican could be expected to win. I’m all but certain McCain isn’t going to win the presidency if he is counting on New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, and California to get him there. I’d Have to say based on his moribund track record as a conservative a lot of Republicans won’t be wasting much time come November 4th. They’re already showing this with a poll count tht is less than half that of the democrats.
Speaking of which. After years of trying to get out the black vote they have finally accomplished it. Not only are they voting in droves, they are voting almost in lock step for Obama. I think this is cool. Everyone should participate, and all we had to do was make it color coded. Shoot, an oreo cookie could’ve beat George Bush had we only known. Scrape off the cream baby, if it ain’t all brown they won’t vote. Pardon my obvious racism here, but is it unseemly to note that only guys like Hitler, Stalin, Hussein, and Ahmadinejad enjoy an 88% popularity at the polls with people of their own race? Before you climb that podium fuckwit, I’m not comparing him to any of them. He is far less prepared to lead than any of them we’re upon seeking the highest office in their prospective countries. If you’d like a comparison I’d go with Jimmy Carter. Nice guy, incredibly intelligent, and so far out of his league that he well might have been the worst president in the 20th century.
While it may have been her last good night in awhile, Super Tuesday was fun for a couple of reason for Hillary. Can you imagine the joy at campaign hillary when they won Massachusetts in dare I say it….a landslide? Apparently Ted’s powerful endorsement wasn’t exactly that. It’s nice to see him out and about, and so pale he can’t be on the planet much longer. I don’t mean to walk on his grave or anything, but what a grand day it will be when his expiration date is realized.
A couple of other notes…wasn’t Missouri awfully close considering again that Barack had all the endorsements that matter their? Is there any state left that Huckabee can win? The answer there is decidely and resoundingly no.
All the rancor and vitriol aside, the democratic race is shaping up to be a real slugfest. I can’t picture Hillary Going quietly into that good night, and Barack has proven to be an astoundingly successful candidate considering he doesn’t have any experience, and his platform is still incredibly scant on detail.
I left out Ron Paul. Reason being is his irrelevence. Which hasn’t changed since day one, as previously stated to many times to ocunt here.
Ain’t We Got Fun?October 7, 2008
My, my, my. Isn’t this just a pickle? I like being right, but there is a limit.I’m here to tell you, I’ve never had this much fun, and I’ve been to two world fairs and a goat fucking. Politics, finance, world order itself hang in the balance, and it gets no better than that.
In just the last month as I reckon it the federal government has injected or is on the verge of injecting over TWO Trillion (that’s trillion with a T) bucks into the financial market. What comes after trillion? it’s million,billion, trillion….but what comes next? Whatever it is, we’ve sunk a quarter of one of them into this mess. In fact, I’m not even counting the fannie and freddie buyout, so probably more like 3 trillion.
Yet, amazingly, no one is to blame. I keep stopping as I write this. Laughter overcomes me. A complete and utter dearth of leadership has created the situation, and suddenly we find that the two candidates aren’t really capable of leading either. Given an incredibly devastating economic crisis just 2 months prior to the election, and McCain panics whilst Obama cowers. The cowering isn’t exactly a surprise. It conforms to both the voting record, and the lack of forthrightness on the part of Barack. The panic was a little surprising. I take it that’s what a bonafide hero does when faced with a situation beyond his understanding. Lacking the tools to capture the essence of the crisis it is better to do be doing something useless than nothing at all. I remember the mindset clearly from my time in the military. I believe they teach it at The Basic Officers Course.
So what we have is a candidate willing to trounce longtime friendships as if they mean nothing, and a candidate incapable of dealing with those issues not related to beans, bullets, and bandages. Let’s look back:
We could’ve had Hillary. Mitt. Guiliani. A host of others. All uniquely unqualifed, but gifted with the egocentricity needed to believe one capable of performing that job. Bill probably would be nice to have around right now. Would be nice if he hadn’t used up his term limits before he achieved wisdom. Oh well. What we have are these two knuckleheads. Both of whom, coincidently, have less executive experience, and less personal appeal than the vice presidential candidate. The hockey mom. Not the inveterate liar and longtime defender of current social policy that has us where we are today. Of course, I’m partial to a well turned calve. Beats worn out political bullshit everytime.
Anyway. I just came by to chuckle. Spending what you don’t have got us here. Blame whoever you want, but that’s what did it. Your friends, neighbors, coworkers…maybe you, maybe a little me. that’s who got us here. Bad spending, atrocious voting. Accepting that in a free and democratic society the government should be bailing out private enterprise. We suck folks, and we just keep sucking. Come the first Tuesday in November we’re going to suck again. We chose these two to lead us to the promised land? We’re we drinking? Hopped up on speedballs and Latte’? Whatever the case. This is frigging hilarious.
awkward conciliatory and encouraging afterward:
If your job is sound, and you aren’t in hock up to your genitalia; if you spend little and conserve copiously you should come through this mess ok. If not, well, tough shit. You were warned.
