Yeah…? Well Ryan is Hot!




Posted at 9:30 by Cerberus


Biden laughing at the right-wing shitstorm he knows he just started.

Entire National Review:
Every Goddamn post on the site

Shorter entire bloody site:

  • Biden is a poopyhead!

At some point, you’d expect one of them to look at themselves and their desperate pleading and just let it go. Maybe enjoy the baffling gains The Smiler made in his first debate*, but no.

Biden revealed the Village’s wonk as having no policy clothes and for that he must be destroyed. Because having eyes is Liberal Facism Double Plus Ungood!


‘Shorter’ concept created by Daniel Davies and perfected by Elton Beard. Seriously, the entire fucking site. It’s wall to wall, wah Biden, wah, how dare Democrats campaign. If I was a hack and my “guy” was able to erase the political damage of stating half the country deserves to starve, not to mention months of complete incompetence, with one debate performance of complete fiction, I’d think I’d be cheering. But hey, whatever, right? We are aware of all Internet traditions.™

*Seriously, though, what the fuck America? The Smiler has hardly hidden what he is, what he’s going to do, and how badly he’s going to fuck every last one of us in the 99%. If a majority of Idiot America send him to the White House anyways because “black man scary” then we fucking deserve the hell we will receive.

    Also too, the angles at which Ryan isn’t kinda funny looking are not many. I think Biden was sitting at one of the other angles.

    Fox psychiatrist Ablow wants Biden Examined for Dementia

    Dr. Keith Ablow provides his services to Fox regularly, making remote diagnoses of the president, etc. Here, some Fox co-hosts deviate from the script by saying that Biden has a solid command of facts, whereas “people with dementia can’t remember.” Good point!

    Ablow: “Not knowing every fact is not required to diagnose dementia. And I’m not saying he has it, I’m saying you put it on the differential … You want his alcohol level.” (Why? Biden wasn’t slurring, and was fully in control.)

    Put it on the differential — that’s doctor talk for “I’m a shameless, pitiful hack.”

  16. tigris said,

    Why would anyone vote for the Smiler? It’s simple marketing. You gotta give the right credit for constantly bombarding the public with the image of lazy welfare recipients, who only get by because of the generosity of the government, and are actually too lazy to find work that’s well paid (we know every job is well paid in their universe). So, it becomes a matter of principle which trumps every other negative aspect of the “take from the poor and middle class and give to the rich” policy. As long as a right wing candidate promises to cut taxes, it’s all good, because in their world that means they are also cutting the welfare spending.

    I think he looks like a young Mr. Bean.

    You know that scene in the Mr. Bean movie where he sneezes on Whistler’s Mother and tries to wipe the snot off and totally cocks it up?

    I can TOTALLY see Paul Ryan doing that.

  19. tsam said,

    October 15, 2012 at 17:07

    It’s simple stupidity. People believe that cutting taxes is deficit neutral, they believe that decreasing revenue in direct taxation will stimulate the economy to the point that revenues will increase because of increased economic activity. It’s easy to believe when you don’t have any education in economics and think that some fuckhead in a suit that actually wants the job of being president is anything other than a lying egomaniac–the type of person that I wouldn’t be sad about seeing exterminated.

    When I was a small child, I would have sworn that the sun was in motion based on hearing the terms sunrise and sunset and my own uninformed observations. Same principle applies here.

    “He was fuckin *laughing*! That’s what you guys call ‘capable and competent’?”

    “Well, don’t you laugh when you see a joke embodied in a human?”

    “What do you mean by that?”

    “Ryan’s a guy who went to school on the Government’s cuff, hasn’t had a meaningful job outside of Government, and does nothing but denigrate ‘the Government’. He’s a Catholic that wants to ignore all the human suffering going on, right now, in America, caused by actions his party initiated, and he wants to stand on his ‘religious values’. The irony, that’s the funny part!”

    “But Biden was laughing! That was so fucked up and stupid!”

    Cognitive disconnect in Colorado. My other head-scratch moment is seeing ‘Veterans for Romney’ signs and stickers. I moved from Boulder (Republik of!) to Longmont (Land of Mountain Williams- the high-elevation version of Hill Billies). Shocking contrast in a ten mile drive.

    Ever notice how the double-R logo kinda looks like a Rolls-Royce logo? I guess it means we get to buy them (the 1%) another Rolls-Royce, and we (the 99%) get to get run over by it, and also, have to wash off the mess afterward, and pay for any damages.

    Many people have been convinced that the Deficit is the cause of all our economic woes, and the Deficit is in turn caused by Welfare and Unemployment and Medicare and Foodstamps and Social Security. Oh, and also by public education and probably the Post Office, too!

    But NOT the “defense” industry, oh no no no!

    Therefore, we must slash and burn and erase with acid and privatize all, and more of these “communist socialist entitlements”, and everything will return to 1950′s type affluence and power and world-wide fear/respect. Yep. That’ll do it.

    That’s the message we are immersed in, 24-7, by our corporate media, KWillow.

    And all the serious people in both parties agree.

    So other than Paul Krugman, Artrios, and a few other voices in the wilderness, there’s not much promotion of the truth: We have an unemployment crisis, not a deficit crisis.

    And all this austerity bullshit will do nothing but make it worse.

    Whaddya mean the Smiler has hardly hidden who he is? The reason why we have such a meth epidemic in this country is due to self-medication for the massive ADD case that we collectively seem to have. Remember the etch-a-sketch comment? Well, he did it and it’s working so far: as far as people know, the Smiler has a plan to cut middle class taxes, spend more money on national security, single-handedly save Medicare (without cutting that 716$Billion that Obama cut) and reduce our deficit. And if Obama really believed that Romney was lying, why didn’t he say so in the debate? (yes … someone actually put it that way)

    Meanwhile, because Obama promised to end partisanship yet he was a partisan who didn’t “bend over backward” (according to William Bennett, that’s part of the McConnell quote the liberal media are not reporting, which entire quote shows that it was indeed Obama and not the GOP who was responsible for all that partisanship) to appease the GOP, he’s just another promise breaking politician.

    The Smiler may have not always hidden who he is, but he did manage to pull off his etch-a-sketch without anybody calling him on it (except Biden, who doesn’t count, because he was smiling and being rude). And, with our short attention spans (my students can’t even manage to remember organic chemistry by the time they take biochemistry a year later), who’ll remember that, at one point, the Smiler was not hiding who he is?

    The right has managed to convince the Howard Roarks and Dagney Taggarts of the country that they should vote for James Taggart and Wesley Mouch over someone who actually has managed to pull himself up by his bootstraps and get stuff done, even if his chosen instrument for getting stuff done happens to be the government.

But then female repugs are obliged to be hot when the party is full of neanderthal males, and obliged to be extreme in their writing and speech to get past the resulting chauvanism.

    Ms Malkin is a reasonably attractive person, when she’s not sneering and spewing vitriol. Thus the ball gag condition. And Coulter, I’m still not convinced that she isn’t just an attention whore who found a schtick that worked and doubled-down on it.

    So after launching Groove Salad’s stream today, Winamp begged me to upgrade, again, so I did, and poked around their site a little only to discover that Alex Jones’s Inforwars Radio Program is Winamp’s most listened-to stream right now. WTF??

    From the front page of infowars.com today:

    On the Monday, October 15 edition of the Alex Jones Show, Alex covers growing threats made by followers of Obama to riot if their leader is not re-elected in November. “The new threats continue to dominate Twitter and the vast majority make no reference to the media’s coverage of the issue over the last week, illustrating the fact that they are a legitimate expression of how many Obama voters plan to respond if Romney comes out on top,” Infowars.com reports today.

    Many, many Poe’s Law mangos on that site, including a nice collage of riot police, flames, and a blissful Obama.

    I suspect that many of Alex Jones’ listeners view him as freak show entertainment and don’t take that shit seriously…

    *

    This is why Dumbocrats always lose. They don’t hold repigs responsible for pandering to ignorant, racist, bigoted morons.

    This fucking singular obsession with demographics and identity politics makes them lose sight of the bigger issues – team

    Yes and no.

    Yes: not only do the Dems suffer because they don’t call the GOP on their “stuff” (it’s an Irish word, like malarky), but they also suffer because their obsession with demos and identity politics make them seem like they only care about “the rights of icky people to do icky things”.

    OTOH, to the extent that the Dems do call the GOoPers out on their stuff, “even the liberal media says that the Democrats are being shrill and partisan”. While simony may tip the calculations of many Democrats to the “not calling the GOP on their malarky” side, the calculations are there because there are very real political costs for Democrats who do call a spade a spade in regards to the GOoPers.

    Could you imagine the “but, but Paul isn’t the GOP candidate, Moderate(TM) Mittens is” and “the Democrats should stick to the issues and not make politics so personal and shrill” and “the Democrats are just being partisan” malarky storm if the Democrats actually did as you suggest? And people would believe it … because “there are extremists on all sides — the Democrats have them too — and the truth is somewhere in the middle, so the Democrats are just being hypocrites for attacking the GOP”.

    I’m not saying the Democrats shouldn’t grow gonads and go on the offensive, but it will have a cost.

    Somebody the other day (at Balloon Juice? Here? I don’t know, just that it was online and had nothing to do with my day job) mentioned seeing a kind of “talk to the candidate about your concerns” meeting. The concerns raised by the Republican crowd were all fictional: Solyndra, Fast & Furious, death panels and so on. These people genuinely do not live in the actual universe we inhabit. They live in a parallel one of their own making that has only peripheral connections to ours. There’s an old saying that you can’t reason somebody out of a position he didn’t reason himself into. Pointing and laughing is likely to work better, I think.

  113. DAS said,

    October 15, 2012 at 22:19

    Oh yes … one more point to add to my mini-rant: part of the issue is that the we have a strong anti-little-d-democratic strain in our political culture so that anyone perceived as being “political” (as attacks on the GOP will be perceived as being) will actually loose political points for it, as people will need fainting couches if politicians actually seem to want to get ambition.

    The problem is that it’s very hard to maintain a healthy, Madisonian system when political ambition is frowned upon: if it’s better not to be seen as being too ambitious, how do you make ambition counteract ambition? We saw this especially during the Bush years when politicians knew that if they opposed Bush & CO’s ambitions, they (the opposing politicians) would be tarred and feathered for their “ambition” (“don’t play politics in a time of war, we need to be united!”) … so ambition was not made to counteract ambition but to go along with it. And look at what ended up happening?

    At least Mitt Romney’s success with his etch-a-sketch (besides indicating his lack of principals) indicates that there is a market for the solutions he is now claiming to propose, which solutions are actually pretty liberal compared to the Village consensus as it stands. Of course, if Obama does win but governs in such a way as to work to obtain the results Romney claims for his plans, Obama’ll be denounced as a radical socialist. And people will forget their support of Romney’s “plans” and join in the denunciation.

    It is time to remind Americans in general and Democrats in particular that one of the most effective politicians since the mid-point of the last century was Lyndon Johnson, a true son-of-a-bitch. Like or loathe his policies, he got things done. It’s not that nice guys finish last, it that they often don’t get to finish at all because assholes grind them into bloody spots in the mud.

    He had the advantage of a completely different political system, though. Political parties were more decentralized and divided, machine politics were stronger, the liberal coalition was stronger, the right-wing money-machine/primarying-system/alternate-universe didn’t exist yet (certainly not in the same scale), moneyed interests in general have subverted a lot more of the political system since then… Not saying Obama shouldn’t hit hard and play dirty, just that there are limits to what any Democrat could accomplish here compared to what Johnson could do.

    I’d also point out that what Johnson got done was in a two-year window between 1964 and 1966 when there were enough liberals in Congress to help him pass all these things. Before that, you had a couple decades where the Conservative Coalition had a stranglehold on Congress and used it to shoot down Truman’s Fair Deal and either shoot down or water down all kinds of civil rights proposals throughout the fifties. After that, well, you got the rise of the Nixon/Reagan coalition, leading all the way down to today…

    Dagny Taggart is not just the entrepreneurial heroine of Ayn Rand’s magnum opus novel, Atlas Shrugged. She is the inspiration of real women everywhere who are taking up her shield and fighting her battle for freedom using the weapons of entrepreneurship, education and free speech.

    The media continually talks about the “war on women.” What the media never admits is that the government is waging a war against women through unjust force.

    The government’s “weapons” include: domestic drones that violate women’s private property rights; unconstitutional taxes and regulations that make it nearly impossible for women to achieve their dreams; healthcare legislation that forces women to overpay for subpar healthcare and the Federal Reserve’s unconstitutional monetary policies that inflate women’s money.

    Here is an ad for Duck Duck Go.

    You are what you search. That’s definitely the case on Google, where any search query turns up a personalized set of results based upon your prior Google search history data, even if you’re completely logged out of your Google account.

    So it’s been since 2009, when Google expanded personalized search to all users.

    But what this means on a practical level is that searching for the same set of terms, including politically charged topics like “abortion,” “gun control,” even the President’s last name, “Obama,” can pull up wildly different results for different users even they’re all signed out of Google, according to a new test by a rival, small, privacy-minded startup search engine called DuckDuckGo.

    “I didn’t expect so much variation for signed out US users,” DuckDuckGo’s founder Gabriel Weinberg told TPM in an email. “You expect some personalization when you’re signed in. But if you’re signed out or in incognito mode, you expect to get the ‘regular results.’ What we found is there are no more ‘regular results’ on Google.”

    Not too long ago, my darling son, having finishes the bunch of grapes I gave him for a snack, threw the stems at my face, and having excellent timing, hit me right in the eye. Some blood vessel in said eye broke and my eye filled up with blood. Apparently this is not a serious problem, but it looks scary as hell.

    Anyways, the interesting part is that everybody I spoke to at the ER, three nurses and two doctors, after I told them what happened, immediately asked in a very serious voice, “How old is he?”. I imagine that if I had said any number larger than, say seven or so, I would have tripped some kind of domestic abuse macro and the shot would really have hit the fan.

    Get one of those UHF loop antennas (It’s what I use; almost all the digital channels are UHF.) or search YouTube for “how to make an HD antenna.” Involves nails, a board & a couple of clothes hangers.

  176. bughunter said,

    October 16, 2012 at 6:16

    I pay just $24 a month for “Antenna Service” from my cable company. It’s Clear QAM of all the local channels, both SD and HD, and in Los Angeles, that’s quite a few. Plus there are a few cable channels like Cartoon Network, Discovery, etc. Combine that with a $200 one time investment for a PC tuner+DVR software connected to an old 21″ iMac that makes for a quite servicable TV since our den is so small.

    For premium channel stuff like Sons of Anarchy and Game of Thrones, etc, bittorrent is a (nearly) ideal solution. (The bittorrent clients are the weak link… I’m using Miro for now, but it’s not perfect.)

    It’s really the best deal around. I design and build microwave/UHF antennas and receive sites for a living, and I could do that for my home TV, too. But to build a comparable homegrown service would cost me the better part of 10 grand, plus a metric fuckton of grief. And the last thing I want to do when I come home is troubleshoot my own fucking system because Mrs bughunter can’t watch So You Think You Can Dance. $24/mo for cable and $29/mo for 3Mb/s internet is peanuts for the convenience.

    from vs’ link:

    Single men watched pornography for an average of 40 minutes, three times a week, while those in relationships watched it 1.7 times a week for around 20 minutes.

    By ‘watched pornography’ they mean ‘fapped to naughty bits on a computer screen.”

    And don’t believe those numbers… for single men it’s more like three times a day.

    The only number I do believe is the 20 minutes for married men. Most porn scenes come in right at 20 minutes in length, unless the producer thinks he’s either an Arteest (de Renzy) or a Ladies Man (Siffredi).

    I wonder how many people now using that phrase know its origin. I’m guessing the guy up in your grill didn’t know.

    A little while back, Paul Ryan felt he needed to distance himself from his buddy, Todd Akin: “His statements were outrageous, over the pail. I don’t know anybody who would agree with that. Rape is rape period, end of story.” Oh, Paul, you don’t believe that, and even if you did, you’ve explained that the circumstances surrounding conception just don’t matter vis-a-vis abortion.

    Anyway, I got a kick out of Ryan’s mangling of “beyond the pale” here. I’m not surprised when people don’t know what that expression means — I didn’t — but I know which words it involves, i.e. not “pail.” But remember, Paul Ryan is really smart.

    I really, really don’t feel like getting any work done (I’m kinda sick-ish right now and just need to veg to let my immune system do its thang), so I looked up missouri synod lutheran on wikipedia and started clicking around.

(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evangelical_Lutheran_Church_in_America#ELCA_and_LCMS)

    The culture wars are over and the right wing lost. Our current GOP core really are a bunch of holdover reactionaries fighting a long lost cause. The problem is that so many people are committed to a pseudo-Nichomachean to ethics and morality that, even when faced with a choice between a nominally liberal party of centrists and a party of reactionary cavaliers that somehow have the religious fervour (if not the moral sense) of Puritans, they still will hold the truth to be somehow in the middle of those two “extremes” and will thus fail to see the GOP’s core for what it is but rather will see it as a mere mirror image of the Democratic “base”.

    Good luck finishing a PhD (for ex.) if the only thing you have going for you is minority status … but then, that’s not how admissions work.

    Anyone who believes that a statistical average (mean? median?) can tell you anything at all about an individual, is either a) of far below average intelligence, b) being dishonest, c) repeating a fallacy he heard somewhere else and liked because it made him feel smart to repeat it, or d) all of the above.

    Not to mention that saying “it’s just the facts,” is attempting to evade providing any support for the premise that “American Blacks” have lower than average intelligence, much less any willingness to discuss that IQ only measures one’s ability to take a test, as any psychologist will admit.

    It’s been said before, and it’ll be said again: if Obama is a product of affirmative action, then that is itself and argument FOR affirmative action. We all may have our disagreements with Obama, and we all can say with confidence how LBJ or FDR would have been able to do far better making mincemeat of the GOP opposition and effectively promoting a liberal/progressive policy agenda. But Obama is hardly the worst or least effective leader around. If affirmative action means that the Obamas of the world get ahead, even if it means that a few Bushes or Romneys don’t get into their first choice schools, I’d say that’s an unequivocally good thing, wouldn’t you?

    We’re certainly entertaining this person… hard to tell if he’s genuine or just having a bit of fun with us.

    But if he is genuine, then he’s entirely blind to how his foregone conclusion (Obama’s dumb because he’s black, and therefore must have been given special treatment) is a result of his racism, and how it forces his logic into knots to avoid dealing with any contradictory real world facts… not just those he’s cherrypicked or invented.

    When they’re laid out plain and simple in front of him, he resorts to projection (e.g., “looks like someone’s irritated because facts don’t square with his worldview”) and changing the subject.

    (I’m using the male pronoun out of convenience only… and assuming it’s a person out of benevolence.)

    The simple fact that he ranks races by intelligence, ignoring mountains of evidence that there’s no correlation by defining intelligence in his own narrow-minded fashion, proves that he’s a simple bigot, and should not be allowed to make any decisions more important than what to have for breakfast.

    The real danger in the United States is the trend of low-IQ southern redneck whites intermarrying with mestizos (especially those from Mexico and Central America). They’re creating a new underclass featuring aspects of both white trash and Latin culture that are less than ideal for a country in the 21st Century. The especially scary thing is that it is both lower-class white women AND white men at about equal rates.

    Oy. Sorry, hate to repeat the troll’s talking points, but one of the more fascinating things I never used to notice about your baseline wingnuts is the amount of contempt they have for “white trash” and working-class whites. Like, in general. Not even just those who vote Democrat or join unions or are on welfare, all of them. It’s not quite as bad as the contempt for Other People, but it’s often damn close.

    (Too young to pay attention in the 1990s, but I’m told the fact that Clinton rose from such a background was brought up often as a point against him).

    They have to have something to say if they lose (and this suggests they think they will). “We lost the election because black people voted and that shouldn’t be okay” might just kill them with moderates, so they run with this instead.

    Cheater D’souza’s not-wife: Time and again, they urged us to recognize human’s natural “animal instincts” in relation to traditional morality and therefore, to reject traditional institutions such as marriage as outdated because now these intellectual elites had things like biology and sociology, things like women’s studies, gender studies, and critical race theory, to back them up. They pointed to infidelity or infamous sexual desire surveys (conducted by homosexuals)[vi] among traditionally married couples to “prove” their theses. Limb by limb, they tore the traditional family to shreds until they reduced us to the shining bastion of zoological (but even animals aren’t this bad and do not depend on the state to care for them)cesspool equality that we have now in every American ghetto and which is seeping out into the middle and upper classes in less animated ways.

    (edited for greater clarity)

    I’d like to bring up a few trenchant points about this thought-provoking comment…
    =Zoological cesspool equality is pretty bad, but not as bad as botanical cesspool equality.

    =If you want to build a cesspool bastion, you’ll need to dig a shit moat.

    The Right-wing fixation on whether Obama called Benghazi an act of terror illustrates their desperation and small-mindedness. Romney hasn’t lost his macabre conviction that he can sink Obama if people will just understand this issue. He came off very badly, like a hyena being clubbed away from a corpse.

    Obama said “No act of terror …” in the Rose Garden: close enough for most folks. Hypothetically, what if he had not? So what. My takeaway is that the president and secretary of state are trying to do their jobs, perhaps not perfectly. Meanwhile, Romney, his party, and his movement play wierd games that are increasingly incomprehensible to outsiders. This sub-game is distasteful at the very least, but Romney and his camp seem oblivious. Obama seems to know, and knows how to help viewers grasp why they’re ill-at-ease with the Ghoul Hyena’s shenanigans.

    The Air Force were well aware of that, which is why they sent the gear as cargo on a domestic passenger jet rather than risk their own transport.

    Apparently they have sent dangerous goods on multiple occasions, and have had internal inquiries to ensure that it won’t happen again until the next time.
    They did not get around to informing the airline or the civilian air-safety authorities about the mistakes or the existence of any inquiries, due to “different staff within the Air Force thinking that others were doing it”.

    Mr Romney apparently repeated the trick recently with one of his grandsons, pushing the shocked child’s head into a platter of whipped cream.

    Digby has more on this, forcefully illustrating that Romney plays by a different set of rules, whether in business and taxes, in breaking the rules of the debate, or in “jokes” on children: “He does like pranks but he doesn’t like to get pranked.

    How about:

    “My opponent has been very critical of my inability to lift this country out of the economic mess that my predecessor created. And I admit I haven’t done as well as I hoped. But Gov. Romney wants to go right back to the policies that created the mess I inherited. And claims it’s the right thing to do… Do you really believe that?

    “Furthermore, my opponent has been very specific in his criticism of my performanc, using statistics and citing “facts” [gotta use scare quotes here]. But yet when pressed for specifics about his economic plans, the most specific thing he can say is that he’s gonna fire Big Bird. PBS, whose federal funding represents SIX MINUTES of US military spending. Devoid of any meaningful specifics, the promise the Governor delivers boils down to, ‘Trust me, I’ll figure it out. Because I’m a successful venture capitalist.’ He’s said nearly this exact thing himself, many times.

    “What he’s not telling you is that the job of a venture capitalist is to 1) take over a company, 2) use its assets to take out loans, and 3) sell the company to some schmuck and walk away with the borrowed money, leaving the new owner to pay off the debt. Gee, when it comes to the federal government, that approach sounds kinda familiar, doesn’t it? Bill Clinton left this country with a surplus after 8 years, George W Bush left us with a massive deficit and the biggest economic crisis in nearly a century after his 8. In four years, I’ve barely been able to stabilize the patient, but the Governor here wants to drain more blood.”

    It’s not hard to write this shit. If the Obama team wanted to, they could do just as well in a hell of a lot fewer words, perfect for televised debate.

    Why aren’t they?

    I’ve become resigned to the apparent fact that the job of the Dems is to lose to the Republicans, in a sort of Kabuki Government that implements the designs of the plutocrats, and return the US to the social condition that’s dominated human history: a few very, very wealthy powerful elite and the rest economic slaves.

    Anyway, in between the traffic reports (which were useless because they said nothing of the horrendous traffic in Queens plaza spilling back onto Queens Blvd and Van Dam nor did they say anything about the accident on the lower level of the 59th St. Bridge or the traffic on 2nd and 3rd that was backing everything up in the first place), I caught the local news radio stations (both subsidiaries of Infinity Broadcasting) trying to spin like mad so they could say “both sides were equally wrong” about the whole “Obama didn’t talk tough about terrorimists” flap.

    omg is right! i cannot believe she has been allowed to live!

    i am srsly ready to barf right now…joe soucheray has this schtick about ‘garage logic’ whereby real men and women are at home in the hardware store and have a large cylinder index which means they have a lot of big ass motorized vehicles, cuz you know, gas guzzling and pollution are cool! but anyway, one of his ‘tests’ is who would he most likely see in the hardware store…NOT obama! and his twerpy little dipshit producer was all, ‘oh ya! you would definitely see mitt in the hardware store!’ i have to walk away from radio before i throw up my manicotti and latte…

    In Re: Michelle Obama. My wife noticed that Ann Romney and Michelle Obama were dressed in a very similar manner and Romney this time was showing off her arms. Meanwhile, all I could manage to notice was that Michelle Obama’s dress was, er, well, shall we say, very flattering to her posterior.

    WTF? Next time they’ll be saying that people would rather have a beer with Romney.

    FWIW, I can imagine running into Obama in the hardware store: “Sasha and Malia just broke the upstairs sink. I told Michelle that the White House is a full service facility and a plumber would come by in the morning to fix it, but she said ‘wait for the plumber, are you kidding me? we need the sink fixed now … anyway that plumber is probably one of Nixon’s plumbers and he’ll just put bugs in the West Wing while he’s wandering around the grounds’, so that’s why I am here in the hardware store in SE DC at 11:00 PM … I told Michelle we should just wait, but no …”

    I can’t imagine running into Romney in any similar situation.

Oooh, look, one of those switch thingies that I see the servants use to adjust the illumination in my houses! I always wonder where they got those. I wonder if they have to install new ones every few weeks? Or perhaps they use the same magic as Joseph Smith’s special hat? I shall pray on it and hope for the answers.

    Well, one thing about the debate is that Romney’s weaseling on contraception probably turned off some of his base (although he completely mischaracterized what Obama’s plan does: how is it that Republicans think Obama has just mandated all woman receive mandatory contraception rather than that the policy does exactly what Romney says he wants — to make it so the choice is the choice of the woman and not her employer or the government?) with him giving qualified support to letting women (rather than their employers) choose.

    Romney also managed to remind us in the liberal base why, as less than optimal as Obama has been, Romney can’t be president — with his remarks about making us more competitive with China and making our business environment more favorable: i.e. he wants to lower our wages and working conditions to be comparable with those in China!

    OTOH, Romney was right: Obama doesn’t know how to improve the economy. Obama (like Romney) clearly believes that titans of industry are the ones that can turn the economy around. I understand how Romney might not realize some of the history of how our middle class grew (although his father’s spinning uncontrollably in the Celestial Kingdom), but Obama should be smart enough to know that government — from the New Deal through the GI bill, etc. — played a key role, beyond merely assuring people follow the rules and such (although basic fairness is important in creating a middle class).

    this was just one of the many moments wherein mittens caused me to stare agape at teh teevee…cuz mitt flat out said that all women should have access to contraception but obama’s wrong because he says all women should have access to contraception…

    Maddow just dropped a “sadly, no” while discussing epistemic closure on the right.

    (She didn’t use the words “epistemic closure”. Big deal. Or we could explode and gnash our teeth for a month on our TV networks and opinion columns because the sacred words weren’t uttered in our preferred manner. Either way.)

    She was pretty pissed the whole segment. Angry, not drunk. The first person to figure out how to monetize the discontent about ineffectual centrist news networks without politicizing it will make a billion dollars.
