For Presidential Debate No 2, your reflection on television is dumber than you appear

If Mitt Romney's candidacy serves one purpose, it's to highlight what fools Americans have become. Without question, Romney shows his supporters to possess a thinking deficit virtually unfathomable. But more dispiriting, Romney's opponents run from him like Team Scooby Doo from a masked ghoul, Saturday after Saturday never wiser. Tonight's second presidential debate was no exception, with Romney contriving ever more spookier hogwash, to an audience and media taking it seriously. As a result tonight, people who otherwise pretend to know better were cheering for a "clean coal" fossil fuel president who's "all about pipelines" because they're afraid of a GOP foil who can't prove he'd be better than Bush. If tonight's town hall questions were vetted, can we not guess they were also ordered? Two subjects, the so-called Libya debacle and Anyone-but-Bush, seemed pedestrian enough to boost the illusion of reality television, but suited campaign camps rather equitably. Are we to believe Romney was left to improvise deficient answers? Any middle schooler could disprove Romney's math, but that's probably more schooling than we can attribute to the corporate media's pretend audience. The public, polled to believe they're as dumb as the level to which pundits condescend, think they have

The Mitt Romney Campaign versus Honey Boo Boo

Mitt Romney is kind of the Honey Boo Boo of the American ruling class, so lets put the two shows up against each other and judge who will win the election by how long each and every registered voter can watch episodes of the 2 respective shows? Democrats will probably all watch Honey Boo Boo for far far longer than they will be able to tolerate watching Mitt Romney commercials. Republicans will most probably watch Honey Boo Boo only a couple of seconds until they head over to the other TV with Fox News reports about how cute Mitt and family are. From this scientific basis of this 'poll', we should be able to predict who will be winner of the US elections! Go to Honey Boo Boo Land to watch endless episodes of this program sandwiched in between commercials. Go to Fox News to see endless episodes of the Mitt Romney Show sandwiched and marketed as football commentaries, bad programming, and commercials for Mitt Romney. Now.... how much of each (Boo Boo vs Romney) could you tolerate? Cast your vote, Americans! Mitt vs Boo Boo?

Obama nails presidential debate. With Romney made viable, the election is on

President Obama nailed it! He had to lose last night's presidential debate and how else was that going to look credible unless he out-Romney'd the reigning court fool? Arrogance would have been easier, and sloughing it off would have been unconvincing. Neither would have resuscitated Mitt Romney's credibility. And while Obama's brilliant turn may appear ego-less, it reflects the ease with which he has been betraying all his supporters with higher hopes. After turning his coat on every issue A-Z, it took a debate to infuriate his Democrat supporters? Where was the anger on Guantanamo, Immigration, Civil Liberties? They only care that he didn't show up Mitt Romney. On the positive, they've all spent the next morning going over in their heads what Obama should have said, probably the arguments they'll make in now revived voter-drives. Denver's debate was psy-ops at its crudest.

Paul Ryan! Mitt Romney picks running mate more low brow than Sarah Palin

He did it! Mitt Romney picked someone more low brow than Sarah Palin, and not just figuratively. Kleptocrat Representative Paul Ryan personifies the very definition of the idiom, Low Brow, coincidentally a eugenic measure of a diminutive frontal lobe, not unrelated to pea-brained under-evolvedness. Such a Frankenstinian VP pick for the GOP ticket, means our election stage managers are pulling out all stops to scare Democrats into the voting booths. That they keep having to make the Republican bogeyman ever bogeyer, could mean they anticipate enthusiasm for President Obama to reach new lows. What unspeakably unpopular move is coming from Goldman Sachs' man in DC, dare we ask, that we'll need Paul Ryan playing Goober Pyle Lugosi to frighten Americans back into Obama's arms?

Mitt Romney trips upon brilliant foreign policy idea, gives Israel’s plan to attack Iran an idiot’s stamp of approval.

On the heels of making A TWIT of himself in London, self-caricaturized Romneyshambles, GOP presidential foil-candidate Mitt Romney traipsed over to Israel and depth-charged their bellicose policy of menacing Iran with continuous threats of preemptive attack by proclaiming his "respect" for it! Then he mistook the capitol of Israel for Jerusalem in the Palestinian occupied territories!   American billionaires aren't underwriting Mitt Romney's campaign because they think he can be president. They don't need him. Pro- corporate Barack Obama is already their internationally-populist figurehead. The money the oligarchs are pouring into Election 2012 is to convince a post-hope public that voting still matters. To ease voter buy-in the electoral decision is being made easy: choose smart versus stupid. Barnum dictates you can't underestimate the American public, but Romney's lack of political sense may out-dumb common wisdom.   UPDATE: What did Romney do next? He praised the Israelis for being more economically successful than the Palestinian neighbors they'd dispossessed, crediting the stereotypical Jewish culture! He closed his standup tour by deliberately soliciting foreign campaign contributions.

Ron Paul and Ralph Nader: the ‘Ayn Rand of Fox News’ connection – SICKO!

So just who calls himself 'the Ayn Rand of Fox News' and loves Milton Friedman? A guy named Andrew Napolitano does, and he, according to the Ron Paul website itself, was voted by Ron Paulers overwhelming as their favorite choice to be Ron Paul's vice presidential running mate! Go to http://www.ronpaul.com/ and see it for yourself. But now just where does Ralph Nader come into this sad mix? 33666

Mr. 1%er – Mitt Romney

Romney was walking the rope line outside of his headquarters in Charleston, S.C., just today when a person off camera asked, "What would you do to support the 99 percent, seeing as how you're part of the 1 percent?" 29969

Doug Lamborn won’t touch President Obama because he says he’s a Tar Baby

That line probably gets lots of laughs at Tea Parties, but over Denver airwaves, Congressman Doug Lamborn's likening President Obama to a "Tar Baby" got, I'll say it, sticky. Yeah, the expression meant "intractable quagmire" when Mitt Romney used it to describe an cost-prohibitive subway project, but Tar Baby's primary allusion to a negative African-American stereotype got Romney in trouble. Now like a banana peel gag irresistible to Republicans, "Tar Baby" is how Doug Lamborn chose to describe, not a hole in the ground into which you pour money, not a trap set by a clever fox to lure the Uncle Remus progenitor of Bugs Bunny, but to describe his Teabag constituents' poster child usurper, risen from America's untouchable class, our first black president.   You dopey Tea Party Klan jester, you won't shake Barack Obama's hand because it's black. You're a racist sneak, unfortunately egged on by the bigots endemic to your backwater district. I hope you find that the rest of Colorado will make your "Tar Baby" remark a real tar baby for you. 26023

I guess they couldn’t pass the physical…

Gratuitous plug for Endless War by the Country Music Awards just a couple of minutes ago. Something about "Wounded Warrior" being always in their hearts. Yeah, right. It's one thing for burnt out AlterKokkers like Ted Nugent and Merle Haggard getting up on stage and telling people that if they were only 50 years younger they'd go in the Army in a heartbeat and offering to have their bodyguards beat up anybody who questions their stupid shit. When 20-somethings, under-40 somethings who haven't pickled their feeble brains and could easily get in even if they have to take a waiver on the physical, moral or psychological parts, that's just STUPID and they should realize that no amount of chanting "9-11! 9-11!" or similar WEAK-ASS bullshit will make people think they really did wish they could go. John Wayne- "gee, I wish I could have gone over there and kicked Hitler's Ass or Tojo's Ass but couldn't pass the physical But the most highly decorated American of WW2, Audie Murphy, was too short not only for the draft but also for enlisting. Very famous case and all the John Wayne supporters who want to back up the lies of their big "brave hero" can

Celebrity Leaders of the Anti-Peasant Crusade

Why is Lou Dobbs considered an "expert" on Immigration, but not Colbert? Now they're barking because Colbert testified in Congress as an "expert witness". And say that his only expertise was that he's a "Celebrity" Say whut? The problem they're having with his expertise isn't the shock to the senses that your first day of Field Labor is to ANYBODY. (It's why the Founding Fathers "hired" slaves to do it for them, because let's face it, if George Washington or Madison or Jefferson had to go out and cut their own damn tobacco and sugar cane (cotton wasn't a cash crop until later) they would have starved. Labor built the fortunes of the "Founding Fathers" the same way Labor builds the fortunes of the Capitalists today.) But they're claiming that his "expert" status was somehow due to his status as a Celebrity. So, what now, do they stop listening to that stupid John Wayne Record about how honorable it is to join the Army, travel to exotic places, meet interesting people, and Kill Them? 20078
