Adam West, elections, electoral college, Humor, marijuana, Mitt Romney, satire, social security, the 1%, what's happening today
One of the funniest things in this election cycle, is the admitted lukewarm embrace by fellow Redumplicans of their main man–the Willard. I mean they shrug and, for maybe the first time in their lives, speak the truth.
Rubio, Latin wonder of Florida said this: “There are a lot of other people out there that some of us wish had run for president — but they didn’t.”
Former NRCC chairman, Tom Davis said this: “He may not be Mr. Personality. You know, he’s the guy who gives the fireside chat and the fire goes out.”
And now, John Boehner has said this: “Listen, we’re just politicians. I wasn’t elected to play God. The American people probably aren’t going to fall in love with Mitt Romney.” And then he said this: “some people” will want to vote for Romney — specifically, Romney’s “friends, relatives and fellow Mormons” — but everyone else who backs Romney will be doing so, not because they think he’ll be a good president, but because they hate President Obama.”
I mean really, they don’t even like the guy, or frankly trust him much I suspect.
I understand these are available for purchase. I kinda like them don’t you?
Our favorite Tom of the month, disgraced Col. Alan West of Florida, advises that those who receive social security are participating in a form of “modern day slavery”. This windbag of crap insults tens of millions of Americans by suggesting that they too are just lazy no-good welfare recipients who would do better to get off their retirements and disabilities and get a job. What a piece of pooh.
Ya know I know that smoking that weed causes the munchies, but folks this is ridiculous doncha think? I mean, leave that stuff alone:
Authorities now suggest that the dude that was killed because he wouldn’t stop eating the face of a poor guy in Miami, was not whacked on bath salts which had been previously thought. Turns out the only thing they could find in his system was cannabis, which to those of you not in the drug-know is POT.
So, hey, if your friends insist on smoking the dope around ya, I’d advise you wear a locked hockey goalie helmet at all times.
Squatlo has a great little video about Willard that you should not miss. You know the Dos Equis guy? The “most interesting man in the world” ads? Well go and meet the “least interesting man in the world–Mitt.” I mean it is seriously funny.
Now, I am not a rich person. I admit that. I didn’t go to any fancy finishing school or private one for that matter. I did not go to the more prestigious of our universities. But I managed to get pretty darn ejukated, if I do say so for myself. But ya see, I’m told now that I’m not at all book-learned up, and for that reason, and perhaps because I don’t drive the BMW or summer in the Hamptons, I’m missin’ just how awful THAT darkie in the White House is screwin’ up some folkses Merika.
So says, a social elite, interviewed on her way into the big do’ins thrown by the Koch’s for their mouthpiece-Willard:
“I don’t think the common person is getting it,” she said from the passenger seat of a Range Rover stamped with East Hampton beach permits. “Nobody understands why Obama is hurting them.
“We’ve got the message,” she added. “But my college kid, the baby sitters, the nails ladies — everybody who’s got the right to vote — they don’t understand what’s going on. I just think if you’re lower income — one, you’re not as educated, two, they don’t understand how it works, they don’t understand how the systems work, they don’t understand the impact.”
Another high muckity muck chimed in:
“It’s not helping the economy to pit the people who are the engine of the economy against the people who rely on that engine, . . .”
Ya see, the Republicans are really doing us a favor by trying to make it hard for us to vote. We just aren’t smart enough to make a good decision. We should just leave it to them–ya know, the one’s who were driving blind to the cliff. Over we go, and kiss your sweet butt goodbye!
What this country needs is a good old-fashioned discussion about the Electoral College.
Now before you start to snooze, listen.
Really, I mean it.
