No brainer

Oy. Doesn’t really matter what he meant now — sometimes an expression so perfectly sums up what everyone was already thinking about a candidate, it sticks like superglue. I wonder what kind of night Eric Fehrnstrom is having.

Still, mustn’t enjoy myself too much. Romney’s going to be the nominee anyway, and I’ll line up behind him and push with all I’ve got. Deja suck.

If you want a nice big blank color Etch-a-Sketch graphic of your own to play with, here you go.

I still have an Etch A Sketch lying around the house somewhere. Brr, or is that supposed to be “laying”? I can never get that straight.

So I said to The Weasel: “You’re going to back Romney?!”

To which she replied: “Over Obama?!”

“That’s why they said we should vote for Cameron,” saith I.

There was an uneasy silence in the mustelid household as we contemplated the mess we are in.

UB speaks Truth, save that he is gentle.

Truth be told, under Romney, we will be somewhat less fucked than under Obama. Romney is probably not the hardcore commie that is Obama, but Romney is a professional politician with a lot more experience in ass-kissing than Obama. He’ll do what he has to do to serve two terms, and little more.

The primary reasons that I see which validate any vote for Mitts are:

(1) We have a somewhat better chance in changing course, or at least delaying what may well be inevitable. But that’s only in contrast to another Four Years Of Obama, where we are certainly, beyond all possible doubt, fucked.

(2) The chance to enjoy a bowl of popcorn whilst watching the massive outrageously outrageous outrage expressed by all of the outraged commies and useful idiots because of the racist trend so clearly evident in post-racial America, should their god-king, Obama, not get elected. Maybe this time, Jesse Jackson’s tears on national TV will be authentic, because his meal ticket is hitting the street. But the potential for civil disturbance is increased, given all of the useful idiots willing to spread “dissent” through “civil disorder”.

In either case, I prescribe having a decent stockpile of food, medicine, weapons, ammunition, and bartering material come November 2012.

I’m not really sure how much this could hurt Romney, I mean everyone pretty much already thinks that about him who’ll have heard the quote and the others who haven’t wont know about it anyway. Its not very quotable really.

Dame Weasel, is there anyway we could post our own etch-a-sketch doodles on your fine blog without ending up with kismet, which would indeed be,well kismet? *ss porn jokes aside. Have a PG13 rated etch a sketch for your perusal.Thankye.

Etch a sketch gaffs aside. at this point I could truly care less if it’s Mitt, Rick, Newt or the goth chick from NCIS…Barky O’stumblef*ck must go.

There. I feel better.

I’d take Obama bootlicker Cameron over Barky, just to be honest.

True words, but the silver lining to this turd shaped cloud is just that…Mitt Romney is a professional pol, and will follow the leash he’s tied to, to get some things done to polish his creds and get a second term. He could be levered severely in the first two to three years. Fourth year is getting re-elected and then Mr Polyester Hair wants some legacy to hang his hat on. Good legacy,Reagan. Bad legacy, Carter/Obarky.
Romney though hollow, gets it: the Dems hate him. He has only one group of friends: the Repubs, like it or not.

No Shit. I have a strong feeling that, if Obama looses the General Election, then the major cities in the U.S. are going to be under Rodney King Riot 2.0 alert….

I was thinking along the lines of the Liberty City riots in picturesque South Florida, all those years ago, over a Police shooting deemed bad. Of course for the knuckle-draggers in most inner cities, any shooting by PoPo is bad.

So I live in the country. And I just added the first of two, yes two, 1911s before spring is even sprung. The city is far away,20 miles or so, and I am happy about that.

Doesn’t hurt to have John Browning’s masterpiece for company either. Rodney King isn’t the issue hereabouts, it’s hardcore hillbillies who cook meth (and use it) and growing latin gangs. Got MS13 in the town one county over.


Mouthbreather who tries to steal from my garden might get pepper sprayed and kicked repeatedly while the deputies come to haul away the trash.

Those who are predicting unsettled times are, I fear, right. In addition to personal preparations as far as supplies, etc. it is just as important to have a circle of trust with friends and neighbors. The larger perimeter allows you to get non-combatants away from the immediate intrusion, and larger numbers means that the intrusion can be met forcefully. Also, sleep and other than protective duties are possible because you can have someone to keep watch.

Uncle Badger is also on to something. If the Republicans can win with a self-described “Moderate Progressive” who disdains Conservatives; that is all we will get for candidates in the future if Conservatives stay with the Republicans. I assume there is a similar dynamic over there.

Sandy, I have looked to see if there’s a dingus that will allow commenters to post pictures. No luck so far. Meanwhile, you can always send me pictures.

We have a very close-knit rural community here. We go to great troubles to court our farmer neighbors. If we were cut off from civilization, we could hold out indefinitely. Sheep, chickens, crafts.

Preznits are transient. SCOTUS judges are not. With perhaps three slots likely to become available in the next term, that is where the real battleground lies. Although Romney is wet as hell, if there’s a decent slate of Tea Party-ish people in congress, his more cringeworthy instincts may be restrained, and there’s a fighting chance of putting some Constitutionalists where they’re needed (if they can survive the inevitable atomic-level Borking.) If SCOAMF gets a second term then the radicals will be pushing on an open door when it comes to stuffing the Court with their placemen.

Greetings Esteemed Blogslady,

Allow me to praise your most scrimshawed crafts. In my community of Disenfranchistan-upon-Derwent we have none of those yet. Our corrupt, THC-toking and gloriously Marxist ruler, Soebarkah Soetoro Barucha Bambooka Baboonga Achmet, Jr. has kindly agreed to extend the blessed shield of protection over peasants and workers in the algae-fermentation industry.
We will gladly have your login and password to the accounts where you log in most often for your inward gratification and in return we can ship freight on board 46 trillion avoirdupois troy ounces of algae pellets to your palatial M.C. Escheresque destination in Schenectady county.
Resist we much, we much and much ado about that be contemplated.

David Gillies speaks truth: we MUST concentrate on keeping the House and picking up the Senate. As far to the right and as decisively as possible.

Flashy McKiwi,

Depending on the degree of intoxication of the moment you could go the easy route and attempt to seduce a Black Angus heifer. Possible side effect: ass full of buckshot or 5.56 Rem rounds from an irate ranch hand. You would definitely make 6 pm news and meet some like minded hobbyists.

If you feel adventurous like Capt. Cook, move north to Shasta Mtns, Humboldt Co. Dodge weed patches. Bring some bacon, peanut butter and rabbit urine just to get the mood going.
You could be inseminated by a randy black bear boar. The are not fussy after emerging from hibernation.
You could run for New Zeeland Parliament with that sort of a resume enhancer.
