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 to chose a lesser of two color-coded evils. Most people, uncomfortably above the charade, are given to conclude that America's foolish public could never govern itself, demand a responsive leader, or even crawl unaided from a paper bag. And that's to confuse reality for television. Next, illustrious talking heads pronounce the winner. NPR had this handicap prepared to suggest a Romney win: it was a tie, but a tie is a victory for the last person in the lead. Then come the fact-checkers, as if a debate is adjudicated based on facts. Are we really to expect that either candidate does not know the facts? A lie on national television used to mean immemorial disgrace.

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? It seems that Ralph Nader has been pushing not even for a return into the Democratic Party as a Democrat to run in opposition to Barack Obama, as he did earlier on in the presidential race. Instead, he has been busy pushing for Ron Paul's Republican Party candidacy! In a recent issue of Time Magazine, he was seen telling the reader that Ron Paul was one of the world's 100 most influential people! SICKO! I wonder if the people of China and India know how important Ron Paul is? I wonder if Mexicans do? Is Ralph Nader catching some sort of dementia in his golden years? Inquiring minds would like to know... One of the most 100 influential people inthe world? EGADS! Spare us this nonsense, Ralph. And how soon will it now be that Ron Paul completely rolls himself into the Mitt Romney for President push? Two Party dictatroship turns the whole selection day show into a circus and our US First folk into just so many saddening clowns. What would it take for us to turn the US into a real democracy? Why it would take us! And it would take us giving up on this charade of being a two party only society. Apparently this is something Ralph Nader has gotten kind of mixed up about.... Go figure?

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?" Romney responded in anger saying, "If you've got a better model, if you think China's better, or Russia's better, or Cuba's better, or North Korea's better, I'm glad to hear all about it, but you know what, America's right, and you are wrong." Right Wingers, like off shore Hedge Fund manipulator Mitt Romney, just never seem to tire in telling other, less well to do US citizens, to get out of 'their' USA... that is when THEIR sorry politics get challenged by decent folk. Like it really might somehow be wrong for somebody in the US to challenge this rich asshole, Romney, because North Korea is on the map, too???? How so? So who wants an illogical but SUPER RICH moron like Mitt Romney to become prez? Anybody? The Republicans really are in a totally sorry state this election year so when we are only given morons and con artists to choose from, it really does call into question the idea that the US is actually a democracy. I don't think the US is a democracy at all in fact.... Real democracies are not run on dollar bills and corporate corruption, are they? The situation in American politics has become so sad these days, that many are beginning to find electing even an Ayn Rand ideologue, Ron Paul, to be their most attractive choice in the presidential race. Gag us! Talk about one step forward and two steps back. That would be getting out of the frying pan and into the pot.

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. Lamborn says he meant "quagmire" and a supportive media is referencing the dictionary to assert his usage was correct. But the instances for which Romney and John McCain apologized were quagmires, not personifications, least of all OF Obama. A physicist can say he's got a problem that's real bitch, but not if he's talking about his wife. I think it's fairly disingenuous to say the primary definition of Tar Baby is a quagmire. That's like concluding Fag is a cigarette. Yes, but that's when neither are used to describe a person. Curiously the local media helpfully mention that "Tar Baby" was a plot device in Uncle Remus, popularized by Disney in Song of the South. No mention that it's the only animation that has not been reissued, because it's widely regarded as offensive on racist grounds. Lamborn has apologized to President Obama and assures interviewers that he's confident his apology will be accepted. Isn't it ironic that he won't touch Obama with a ten foot pole, yet can count on the man's magnanimity? Of course he's right, the president opposes nothing, why take issue with racism? But I believe Lamborn will have lost his value to even his Tea Party Klan associates. Having his apology accepted, it's going to be impossible for Lamborn to belittle Obama with even a pea-brain pretense of credibility.

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 look it up on their way to kissing my ass. ChickenHawks of a feather do flock together. A partial list: Mike Huckabee Mitt Romney, Lame-ass excuse for sending other people to murder for him "Exempt from the draft due to Mormon missionary service which conveniently ended as soon as age knocked away the 1-A draft rating". But not exempt from actually enlisting. There ARE Mormons who actually did enlist including chaplains. Wouldn't have chaplains without a need for chaplains, like, other Mormons forming a congregation, right? Every one of Mitt Romney's worthless sons. Their excuse: "we have more important stuff to do like making sure our Chickenshit ChickenHawk dad gets elected president" When the CS. CH. Daddy lost early in the primaries, of course his Big, Healthy, Brave Sons went straight to the Recruiters office... yeah, right, and enlisted right alongside John Wayne and Ronald Reagan. Ted Nugent, what a wiener err "winner", did a magazine interview later where he boasted that he had, prior to the physical examination, shit his pants then didn't change or bathe for a month in order to convince the doctors that he was crazy. For some reason, it worked. Now he threatens to beat up or machine gun anybody who dares to mention that he supports war, supports baby killing, just as long as he doesn't have to take the risks. George Bush, "Scooter" Libby, Karl Rove, Paul Wolfowicz, Richard Cheney, Liz Cheney, Jenna-and-Barbara Bush, Jeb Bush, Rush "I had a pimple in my ass" Limbaugh, Bill "I had a back problem" (a yellowish rash on his spine)O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, Todd Palin, and now, the Cast and Crew of the CMA awards. ChickenHawks on Parade. Look, if you're going to take a stand against joining the military, Take a God-Damned REAL Stand. Peter Coyote took a stand where he

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? Since John Wayne's only expertise on war and military was that he portrayed Soldiers in some of his movies. Same with Ronald Reagan, George W, Romney, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Ted Nugent, Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, Tom Tancredo, Bill O'Reilly, Rudi Giuliani, Lou Dobbs... The only experiences they had as "warriors" is that they dodged the draft and sent other people to kill and die in their stead. And they have an equivalent level of expertise in Immigration, Constitutional Law, Religion, Terrorism, or any of the other "Celebrity Expertise" they tout, and yes, even instruct the Right Wing Lunatic members of Congress on those subjects. Ted Nugent boasted that he "beat the draft" by shitting on himself then not bathing for a month before his Draft Board examination. Convinced the doctors he was crazy. Instead of just being a chickenshit. Now he supports all Wars and dares people to disagree with him. Kind of the same way Sarah Palin told people not to sit down or shut up, unless they "heckled" her, then she had Government police paid by Tax Money to enforce for her and violently remove anybody who dared to speak against her. Ted Nugent would do that same thing if you tried to take up his challenge at one of HIS hate rallies. Even though he's prancing around the stage, like the silly bitch he truly is, with an allegedly fully loaded machine gun. He'd still have somebody else do his fighting for him. But not a whimper from the Right Wing Noise Factory about HIS use of a "celebrity status" to tout their bullshit for them. Rudi Giuliani is a typical Pig, former prosecutor, like local Celebrities Ken Buck and Doug Bruce, meaning they stood in court, hiding behind their PIG comrades to make sure nobody gets "uppity" with them, and talk like they're "Tough Guys". Chickenshits and Pigs, Chickenhawks all. Giuliani is touted as an "Expert" in Terrorism because
