Congratulations, Elizabeth Warren!

Now stop pretending to be Cherokee, dammit!

ATTENTION ALL CHRISTIANS!

As soon as our Glorious Leader’s re-election has been secured by ACORN and the New Black Panthers, please report to your nearest FEMA re-education camp to turn in your guns and be forcibly gay married to an illegal alien under Sharia law. Hail Satan!

The Future Is Past

Okay, so about a week out I’ll go ahead and make my long-awaited prediction:  Obama will carry every state he carried in 2008, less Indiana and possibly North Carolina and/or Florida.  Might also be a surprise and take Arizona.  I’ll also predict the Democrats will hold the Senate, and might even add 1 or 2, with the Republicans keeping the House, though I think their margin will be cut considerably.

Having said that, my prediction means (at least) another two years of complete gridlock.  If Obama really believes that his re-election will break the “fever blister” of Republican hysteria and obstinacy, he’s even more naive and narcissistic than I thought.  There are no moderate Republicans; there aren’t even really any sane Republicans left in Congress.  Even if there were, the Tea Party has sufficiently proven its ability to punish those who displease them that they will not take the risk of being seen to “cooperate” with the Muslim Nazi Kenya Usurper in the White House.  A GOP House will continue to refuse even a vote for any of Obama’s second term proposals; GOP Senators will continue to insist that 60 votes are required to conduct any business.  Assuming Romney loses, the Right Wing Howler Monkey Media Chorus will rail that he wasn’t conservative enough and insist on running a complete lunatic in 2016 (potentially good news for Joe Biden or Hillary Clinton).  I wish I was wrong on this, but I don’t think I am.

Bottom Line…

…repeat of the last debate in terms of style/presentation, meaning advantage Obama. Kind of confused by Mitt’s bold strategy of fighting to agree with Obama every chance he got. Took Obama two good debates to wash off the stench from his first performance. Substance? Please. America has had the same China policy (economic capitulation) for the last 30 years. And everyone agrees that blowing up villagers with drones is a swell way to win friends and influence people. Global warming? Hah. Evidently teachers unions, bayonets and horses are more relevant to foreign policy.

That’s Debatable

Liberal crowing that the President “kicked ass” tonight are almost as pathetic as their claims his abysmal performance in Denver was part of some secret plan to lull Mitt Romney into a false sense of security. Romney looked about the same tonight; Obama only looked good by comparison with his previous phoned-in performance. That being said, given the volatile nature of the polling (something that frankly surprised me after the first debate), tonight’s showing should add to the slight uptick out of the tank Obama has been very recently enjoying.

Keep it Classy, Scott Brown!

His asshole staffers get caught doing “Indian war whoops” and “tomahawk chops” on camera.  As has been extensively documented, Elizabeth Warren’s claims of Cherokee (now, apparently, Cherokee AND Delaware) ancestry are risible.  That being said, Scott Brown doesn’t give two shits about Indian issues and his followers seem to be dominated by ignorant, racist jacklegs.

What They REALLY Think…

Where’s the 13th Amendment when you need it?  Coal miners were forced to attend a Mitt Romney rally and then docked pay.  No, seriously.  Just in case working people were wondering what Willard thinks of them: as props.  Unpaid props at that.

And speaking of props, Republicans in the Senate killed a bill to provide jobs for unemployed veterans.  Think about that the next time a Republican tells you how much they “support the troops.”

Let Me See If I’ve Got This Right…

Mitt Romney repeats a time-worn (and wrong) Right Wing chestnut–namely, that half the country are lazy welfare bums who don’t pay taxes–and everyone’s up in arms? How’s that again? The only mystery, and it isn’t much, is why Right Wingers are so upset about people NOT paying taxes. What’s up with that, right? You thought Republicans hated taxes. Well, they do, but only taxes on REAL AMERICANS, i.e., John Galt, or Mitt Romney. The 47% myth plays into two deeply-held Right Wing beliefs: first, poor people suck. Poor people (especially brown poor people) are lazy parasites who should be brutalized for their moral failing in being poor. Second, Right Wingers fervently believe that the only reason the poors and the coloreds vote for the “Democrat” Party is because they are being bribed with all that welfare money confiscated from the Almighty Job Creator Class (put aside the facts of where and who the 47% really are). If only they had “skin in the game,” then they’d hate welfare and become good honest Republicans. Here’s the harsh reality: the flailing incompetent Romney Campaign has decided this will be a base election. Therefore, he’s going to toss as much red meat as possible to the Ayn Rand cultist base of the GOP. The only thing surprising about this “shocking” leaked video is that it’s not part of Willard’s stump speech. Yet.

Gone To Texas

Good article on the state of partisan play in Texas. I agree with the notion of Tarrant County as a key bellwether of any purple trend statewide, a county where Democrats were making inroads until the 2010 debacle. Wendy Davis’ campaign for reelection to the state senate will be a strong indicator of whether 2010 was a fluke or a reassertion of Right Wing dominance. Another major problem, referenced in the article, is the degraded state of the Texas Democratic Party, an organization that has never really been that strong and is now practically nonexistent. Hopefully, the TDP has abandoned their fantasy of wooing back white “Reagan Democrats” (so named because they haven’t voted for a Democrat since Reagan) and will instead devote their meager resources to registering and turning out Hispanic voters. Until that happens, Texas Democrats will remain a third party (after the Tea Party and the mainstream country club establishment Republicans).
