Picture of Pure Entitlement

Jesus! Doesn’t this say it all….got your jet in the background; someone’s brought you a comfy chair to sit in on the fucking tarmac; and, some poor soul is spiffing up your shoes.  You fucking dick! In no way do you deserve to serve as president of this country.

Mitt’s Latest Campaign Ad



The Empty Candidate

One of the best descriptors I’ve run across in relation to Mitt Romney is ’empty.’   The context in which I found it was at Dibgy’s place in this remarkable posting that epitomizes Mitt’s very emptiness – his very lack of substance.

In describing a protest during the ’60s where the Stanford administration office of the president was being held hostage by anti-war protesters, a group of counter-protesters, describing themselves as supporters of the university president as well as anti-communist (war supporters)  had the opportunity to meet Mitt, who described himself as “having some experience with the press.” [Interpretation: I’m a self-seeking bullshitter who will get my picture out there for your cause even if I don’t believe in it. Even at 19, he had it down.]

And then there were the chickenhawks.  They were neither part of the revolution nor did they take the obvious step of volunteering to fight the war they supported.   In fact, due to the draft, they allowed others to fight and die in their place despite the fact that they believed heartily that the best response to communism was to aggressively fight it “over there” so we wouldn’t have to fight it here. These were empty boys, unwilling to put themselves on the line at the moment of truth, yet they held the masculine virtues as the highest form of human experience and have portrayed themselves ever since as tough, uncompromising manly men while portraying liberals as weak and effeminate.

Empty boys …. who grow into empty men – empty…. soulless.

Slimy Snake Oil and Turd Salesman

So Romney drops out.


That ‘speech’ he drilled out on CNN just now was disgusting: Islamofascism, unwed mothers, out-of-wedlock babies; the battle over G*d . . . . . yak, yak, yak…..

 (And – someone tell me again why the likes of Joe Scarborough & Chris Matthews allowed a platform?)

Where’s the Holy Spirit When Mike Huckabee Needs It?

The “I just can’t keep my mouth shut” award to Mike Huckabee. Between quarantining AIDS patients, having wives everywhere joyfully subservient to husbands (“A wife is to submit herself graciously to the servant leadership of her husband even as the church willingly submits to the headship of Christ.”) ….. now we can add, ‘don’t Mormons believe jesus and Satan are brothers? Oopps – forgot the ‘oh, now – global warming is just a tad ‘overblown.’ Doinnkkkk!

Please – please – keep it up . . . .

Really. I don’t care at all for Blandana Mitt at all, especially given that he’s right up there with the best of the “whenever I open my mouth stupid shit falls out” and think I look great while saying it dimwits. But doggamn it!™This is taking away from the REAL ISSUES of :

  1. Who would Jesus shoot?*
  2. Who would Jesus waterboard.
  3. Who would Jesus send to Guantanamo?
  4. Who would Jesus stop at the border?
  5. What language would Jesus speak?

Of course, I’m sure I’m missing a few. Feel free to add to the doggamned™ list.
