A Nation of Pussies, Vol. 70

For those playing along at home, this week has had some mighty thin-skinned sissified bullshit news. I really shouldn't use the term "pussies" come to think of it, because really- who doesn't like pussy (the vagina, not the feline)? No, I'm talking about the delicate/fragile people that can't take the heat but refuse to leave the kitchen.

Sissy Bullshitter #1

James Carville is certainly passive-aggressive, but is more the root cause of sissified bullshit, than he is the subject. Bill Richardson endorsed Obama this week, and that made the baby Jesus cry. Or Hillary. Whatever. Richardson is sporting a Van Dyke goatee these days, so he must be "evil" I guess. Carville goes on telly and makes some ham-handed jab about the timing of the endorsement being ironic as it's reminiscent of Judas Iscariot selling out Jesus for 30 pieces of silver. Really? That's the best he's got? Well in any event, the sissified media types got all misty and hurt and have prattled on about it since. If by chance any Dem strategists in the Obama camp read this, here is the correct rebuttal: "It's sad to see that Hillary's own Joseph Goebbels can't seem to muster his "A" game anymore."

Sissy Bullshitter #2

Chelsea Clinton was asked if her dad's shit with Miss Blue Dress (and presumably Hillary's decision to keep him) was a liability on the campaign (or words to that effect). She got indignant and said it was off limits. Off limits? What the fuck is that? Had it not happened WITH AN INTERN IN THE OVAL FUCKING OFFICE, it might've been off limits... Give me a break, horseface. You can't parade around campaigning and expect the kid-glove treatment. Either: a.) Say you were not privy to the situation, as you are merely the daughter, and they should ask a participant. b.) Say yes/no or I hope yes/no - whatever your opinion is. c.) Say "I don't know". or d.) Stay off the campaign trail and enjoy your trust fund. And I'm sorry for calling her "horseface". We all have our crosses to bear.

Sissy Bullshitter #3

Neil Cavuto had a guest on his show who implied that Fox News had a right leaning bias. Neil got his fluffy panties in a knot and got all jingoistic with the "fair and balanced" claptrap. It's okay Neil, everyone with a pulse knows that Fox is "in" with the GOP and this current administration. You don't have to keep denying it anymore. Limbaugh doesn't feel the need to keep up any such pretenses- you'll be okay. You keep saying you don't have a GOP problem- that you can quit any time you want. The fist step is admitting you have a problem, you big Jessie.

Sissy Bullshitter #4

This one pains me, because I love this guy. Seriously- it's "bromance". Mike Gravel- the only candidate I would vote FOR (all other choices being lesser of some evil), has decided to leave the Democratic Party (about fucking time) to go to the... wait for it... Libertarian Party! Say it ain't so, Mike! Ooof! Mike has been effectively cock-blocked by the media at every turn. He's a wicked-serious threat should he ever get traction, but that's not going to happen in this plutocratic oligarchy. No chance. So instead of bowing out, he's changing horses- but to the wrong fucking horse. The Libertarians HAVE a candidate with more money and influence already- well a de facto candidate anyway (he still claims to be a Republican)- Ron Paul. No way Mike can make a dent there- they are ideologically light years from his world view. He meant to go to the Green Party, but apparently got lost along the way.

There were surely more than these, but these are the ones that caught my eye/ire.

UPDATE: He can be as full of shit as a Christmas Goose, but I also love Christopher Hitchens. Until the day that he drinks himself to death, we can all enjoy his work, like this

You really have a talent for finding some of THE most unflattering photographs, don't you? Of course, of the Clinton women, this is not particularly difficult...

Mike went all Libertarian? No way!

The true Libertarians remind me of Communists from the fifties. Full of ideals that are just not going to work because humans are too infallable.

But Mike is on the other end of the stick from them in so many ways. He is 100% governmental problem solving. Granted, he (rightfully) thinks the populace should be getting what it wants and not what some politician in bed with corporate America want to give... but still... he thinks government in Washington is the proper tool for everything, which is idealogically unbefitting the Libertarian party.

Mike's biggest problem is that he comes across angry all the time. He and Ron Paul both have the crazy old uncle stigma that they can't overcome in sound bites against polished politicians with cheesy teeth... Get them in quieter settings and both of them (like Dennis with the redhead tower) have a lot to say about Washington and its ugly culture.

I love watching some of Hitchens' debates he did promoting his book (which I bought to support his "cause").

And he is spot on about the whole religious nutjobberdoodoohead political creep...

Even Clinton, when he got caught with a shiny knob, called in (oh who was it? Roberts? Falwell? One of the big imbeciles, at any rate...)to demonstrate his piousness and his ernest repentance and renewel.

And Bush had Ted Haggart (think about THAT little tidbit for a bit) calling him once a week until he fell from his own grace...

McCain invited his own demise when he called in endorsements to get the southern nutjobberdoodoohead vote.

And here we are, Americans with three really bad choices once again, and a government still amuck and out of the control of the populace...

You called me fragile. That hurt my feelings. I may need therapy.
