He Likes the Streets Too!

Willard is just weird. There is no other explanation.

I mean, think back to when you were in high school. Surely you knew a Willard. He was the kid who wore a belt with his pressed and seamed jeans, and a checkered shirt. He wore goo in his hair. The wore a leather-banded watch. He wore black glasses. He brought salads in his perfectly folded lunch bag, and he had napkins.

He wrote legibly in his numerous notebooks, and he always knew the answer. His locker was clean. He wore a windbreaker. He wore tennis shoes, but never never brand names, and they were spotlessly white. And he washed his hands A LOT.

He was a geek even if he wasn’t a science nerd. He probably played cornet in the band, or clarinet.

That’s our Willard. He is socially inept and uncomfortable except among his own kind. To figure out why he wants to be President. . .needs to be president. . .would take the better part of psychoanalyst’s day to explain. Because of his wealth he’s been able to sit in his own office, behind a desk, safe and secure and issue orders. He avoided all the messiness of life. For God’s sake he tied the dog to the roof of his car rather than muss up the interior with dog hair.

You can tell he is not used to being challenged. When Santorum told him “you don’t know what you’re talking about,” he visibly moved back, his face went blank and he stared a hole in Santorum. Yes, Willard does like to fire people. Those who dare to challenge his authority. His arrogant “you get to ask the questions, I get to answer the way I want,” remark, now issued twice, is a hallmark of the guy who is used to doing the talking while others dutifully listen.

Yet, for all his supposed business savvy, this guy is clueless. So clueless that he can’t be left to his own devices lest he burst out with, “because I said so!” He is so wildly out of touch that he can’t even listen when told that his behavior is silly, his choice of words, childish and goofy. Instead of learning, he goes out and does it again.

So yesterday, Willard gave his much awaited, gonna knock ‘em dead in the aisles, economic speech. And he started out with,

“This feels good being back in Michigan. You know, the trees are the right height, the streets are just right. I like the fact that most of the cars I see are Detroit-made automobiles. I drive a Mustang and a Chevy pickup truck. Ann drives a couple of Cadillacs.”

Forget the fact that the whole thing is already a photogenic disaster. Forget that he is utterly insensitive to the fact that two people have FIVE (he said he also used to have a Ford truck) vehicles between them, and 2 of them are Caddies.

No, the problem here is, “the streets are just right”. WTF? Who is this nut? Man Willard, this ain’t the forest and you aren’t Goldilocks. Or maybe that’s the problem. You think you are. Whatever, it just makes you look a fool. Which I guess you really are.

And dude? I really don’t want a President who gets visibly pissed when somebody challenges him. I don’t think that is the kind of “leader” I want. Come to think of it, I think it explains perfectly why you come off the way you do. You’re “advisers” are scared to dispute anything you say. ‘nuf said.

Well, it’s not like it wasn’t gonna happen.

Ragin’ Ricky was NOT gonna be able to stay on the wagon. The “thou shalt stay on message about the economy stupid” wagon. He tottled off, stumbling and careening until he pitched head long into the deep black hole of his own sexually perverse fantasies.

It will be enough to scare off the Independent of thinking folks in MISH-E_GAN probably, and he probably needs some of them to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory as regards The Willard.

Trust me, the land of two parts, has got a large wacko group of NASCARy-HIgh-SkOOlish grad-G-ates to give him still a decent chance. They hates the DAy-Twa (Detroit for you non-locals) element to death (and that means Romney and his hoity-toit Richie Rich ReRichricans) and, and thus, they may beer-belch the Churchy-boy across the finish line first. Just maybe.

And by the by, the upper land of two parts, so-called the UPPER PENINSULA? They are Wisconsians frankly. They HATE anything south of Grand Traverse. They will probably go with Dr. Paul. Or a Yooper Hat, which ever is the last thing they see before making their X on the ballot.

When the issue first came up, they said, “get out of here!”

When courts found one-man-one-woman a violation of the equal protection clause of the US and State Constitutions, they called them “activists” and demanded that the matter be left to the duly elected representatives of the people.

When the duly elected representatives of the people passed marriage equality bills in both chambers, they said, “leave it to the people to decide in a referendum.”

Of course, that’s what the Founding Fathers meant to happen. The rights of minorities should be decided by the majority.

That’s why Christie’s phone is ringing off the hook. David Barton wants him to come help to ‘splain the Constitution to the folks. And Liberty University is on the other line. They want him to teach a course in Constitutional law.

And Christie? He’s sending copies of his veto to all the TeaPeople. He is pretty sure they will “get it.”

We're just guarding the moonshine. We never saw nuthin'.

    I can almost feel sorry for Mitt because of his ineptitude; almost, but not quite. Christie is scum, I am disgusted… and don’t get me started on Santorum! What a crew. I hope Christie’s decision to veto that bill comes back to haunt him!

    • Sherry says:

      Mimi, it will haunt him. In 4 years, the LGBT community will be more cohesive, have found more favor, and will kill him at the ballot box. He made a huge mistake thinking that the crazies on the right were going to be around in 4 more years. I doubt that, at least politically. The crazies, unfortunately, we will always have with us.

    I am beginning to employ DENIAL with US politics right now. You keep me more informed than any other media source that I try not to look at or read. I always like your images and cartoons. Thanks, Sherry.

    • Sherry says:

      Well, I am biased, lol. But I do try to state truth as best I understand it. Humor is the only defense against mass suicide.

    “Ann drives a couple of Cadillacs.”

    Hopefully not at the same time.

    All the “Willards” I knew in high school actually grew up to become fairly successful and reek revenge on all the cool guys.
    prediction: Romney will win the GOP nomination and then go on to loose in a landslid to Obama.

  5. Once again, Mitt shows his utter ignorance of the people he claims to represent – the one – or no-car folks. The man is a buffoon. I was listening to a BBC program last night and the comments were a lot about how these Republican candidates are simply buying their way into the election. Super Pacs are a disaster for this country.

  6. Cynthianne says:

    I’m with Jan- I can’t bear to watch the “mainline” news sources any more, since they have to at least pretend to take the Republican Clown Show seriously, and it drives me CRAAAAZY! So I read snarky blogs like this one instead. Much better for my blood pressure. One point to cheer all of us here up a little… The turnout for the Republican primaries so far has been much lower than that for 2010- looks like even the Repub base, the loony 27 percenters, don’t much like their choices either. If we are all very good and eat our spinach, maybe they will all sit home and sulk this November instead of voting for whichever clown finally gets the nomination. I can dream, can’t I?

    • Sherry says:

      I think that a lot of really decent Republicans will stay home. And the middle I think doesn’t trust Romney any more than the rest of us do. In all honesty, I continue to say–“I have not a clue what this guy believes in. That in itself makes him dangerous. It suggests that he will move in the direction always of polls. Unless there is something major in the economy that goes wrong, I think Obama is okay. I heard that George Will has already condemned the GOP for attacking on gas prices. This is the one thing no president can do much about. It’s a global issue. And I suspect most Americans realize that. No president would stand by and allow gas prices to soar willingly, so common sense tells you they have little control. A good discussion on this on UP this morning with Chris Hayes suggested that this is about 2/3 the fault of the banks and others who have no interest in oil, speculating on prices. This was supposed to be fixed by Dodd Frank and the Volker act, but so far hasn’t been.

  7. Oh dear I thought those three dogs were a hoot! Absolutely LOL.

    I see you are warming up for the actual race, Sherry (by focusing on Mitt). And you’re right that should be a laugher too.

    Except I wonder if the nouveau Democrats (who discovered politics in 2008 and think they owned Obama and he ‘betrayed’ them) will stop complaining and be sufficiently mobilized against Romney. If Romney makes the mistake of having Santorum or Gingrich or Paul as VP I have no worries that the Dems will come out in force.

    • Sherry says:

      My fervent hope John is that when the Democrats see who the GOP actually fields, it will be so scary, that they will realize they must do everything under the sun to make sure that OBama is re-elected. Least I hope so.

Tell me, what do you think?
