Okay, I’ve come up with my slogan for 2012

The great thing is, it works equally well for both parties. And, come to think of it, nearly every election I’ve ever voted in, ever.

Other slogans considered: “Let’s Get This Over With” “Oh, Goody” and “WhatEVER.”

In other news, Obama has lost his 2nd Chief of Staff, former Chicago mayor Daley, because Michelle didn’t like all the White Catholic power up in her hubbies Oval Orifice…..

Oh, and if the Clothespin doesn’t work, try smearing Mentholatum under your nostrils and around your mouth. We used to do that in College for the smell when we were doing cadaver work……

It SHOULD help with the stench of politics……

The sewage being spewed out by both the politicians and the media is making me feel as though I am at the tail-end of an electoral version of the “human centipede.”

No, I haven’t seen the movie, but I can’t scrub my brain of the Internet’s need to constantly reference it.

If you don’t know what it is, DO NOT look it up. Seriously.

We’ve got two political parties that basically want to control everything the people in the other party do. “You like weed and butt-sex! Let’s make that illegal!” “you like transfats and Christmas! Make those evil things illegal!”

Screw getting along, can’t we all just leave each other the hell alone?

I still can’t believe that after ALL that Tea Party activism we did–the hours spent, the genuine alarm that we felt, the earnest efforts of so many committed people, that we end up with Romney and Newt Gingrich??? Call me down in spirits at the moment, but I genuinely fear for the future of America. The one bright spot is that Obama is such a blight and has managed to nauseate so many people that maybe–if the unquiet dead don’t vote–we might get rid of him. Nature abhors a vacuum, however.

Mark T, the Taxed Enough Already movement is not in a position to say “after ALL that Tea Party activism we did” as if no more is required–have you noticed that the Occupy types crashed a Republican function where Chris Christie was supposed to speak, and succeeded in disrupting it?

The Governor of New Jersey did a nice job of handling the disturbance, but why was it necessary for him to handle the disturbance? Everyone else in the crowd just stood around, waiting for someone else to do something. Why was it none of the Occupy types wound up in the jail ward, waiting to crap out their teeth?

Not content to merely hold a meeting of their own, Occupy has begun breaking up their opponent’s meetings, and not one damned thing happened to them as a result. They won’t stop now. They won’t stop until they are made to bleed.

I’m sorry, Mark T, I guess it looks as if I’m putting this off on you, and I don’t intend that, it’s just that reading your comment put me in mind of this. Without noticing it, we’re moving into a stage of open political violence in the US, initiated by Obama supporters, which is what Occupy is, down to the last hipster douchebag. Voting is merely one of a selection of methods they will use–is it the only one we will use? If so, then Occupy will be laughing at us as they kick our asses, and get Obama reelected.

Time to vote with your feet. I will vote for whatever political hack emerges as the non-Duhbama candidate. The next Prez could be awful and still look stellar next to this ass hat.

My slogan this year?
“Pulling the trigger for stupid.”

@ Mark T:

When discussing the impact of the Tea Party on the political landscape, I am often reminded of this little piece from Milton Friedman:

“No, we don’t need to change congress, excuse me. You know, people have a great misunderstanding about this.

“People in congress are in the business, they’re trying to buy votes. They’re in the business of competing with one another to get elected. The same congressman will vote for a different thing if he thinks that’s politically profitable. You don’t have to change congress. People have a great misconception in this way they think the way you solve things is by electing the right people.

“It’s nice to elect the right people but that isn’t the way you solve things.

“The way you solve things is by making it politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing.”

And it is in this aspect where the Tea Party is having its effect….

I recently saw an article where it was stated that the most visible result of the Tea Party influence on politics as usual (aside from the 2010 election results), is the end of the ethanol subsidy….especially when you consider that the subsidy ended within days of the Iowa Caucus….

I worry less about the influence that the incoming President will have on just about everything, than I am hopeful about the proper motivation that Congress will have to do the right thing…

The one area where the Republican slate of candidates has failed to focus is the one where I am most concerned….and that is judicial appointments….most specifically, Supreme Court nominations…..

My first vote was for Nixon. The last time I voted without holding my nose was Reagan’s 2nd election.
