Monday Quickies. No Linkys.
Newt: "Why is everyone in such a rush to dislike me?"
Dole: "Saves time."
The wheels are flying off the Newt bus, never mind the actual endorsement by Mack Daddy Cain, the rogue endorsement of Mr. Palin, and the almost sorta not actually but nearly so semi endorsement from Mrs. Palin.
News flash. Mrs. Palin is still a rube. And her stock at FNC is so low she's mainly doing the B list shows, over on Fox Business. I wonder if Roger Ailes and the company got their money's worth out of her contract yet? If so, take the Redneck Xena off the air. Please?
I am tired of the "They are not racist, but . . ." arguments. That is not a news flash. But I want to see some strong voices with high media profiles make the case that calling someone racist is not impolite, as long as their behavior warrants it. We can never really know what is in some one's heart, even if they say,"This is in my heart." Fuckers will lie. Particularly if they are wing nut racists who tend to believe the line is always there where the next guy said something stupid. It is never right there under their feet, when they say something stupid.
Anything else for now? I saw some polling showing that a race between P. Obama and Romney is tighter than one between P. Obama and Newt. Newt gets creamed. It's nice to know that only so many Americans are freak flag flying, flaming idiots.
Ok. I am done. For now.

Screw Linking It.
What is worse is that some people think this is news, and not on account of the irony. That kind of person would naturally miss the irony.

Newton Leroy: Crown Prince of the Redneck Horde.
Well I originally wanted to post this just because of the topic in the title. The bizarre, mentally damaged person's complaint, that the audience was being stifled in siding with the candidates AGAINST the media? Then again I don't get this redneck, wing nut animosity against the media. I think it's pathological. I mean I get it. that Newton Leroy, Crown Prince of the Redneck Horde, scores points with the minions every time he does that. But it makes no sense. The job of POTUS is not to be at war with the media, for cryin' out loud. That has as much to do with being POTUS as one's ability to knit sweaters! (But I do get it -- it's an us vs them, identity politics, in group bigotry thing. And that's why I think it's pathology.) Anyway . . . .
I stuck with the video about 1/2 through. Talk about hypocrite or self blindness. Newt rants about the dishonesty of Romney calling him an influence peddler. Now why the freaking hell would any corp hire him as a so called consultant? Because he once had been a history professor, or because he once had been Speaker of the House?
My gods! The nerve of this bullshit, redneck millionaire. It's hard to be a standout liar among the GOP but we can call him a contender for the worst of the lot.

When Lawyers, NAY, Law Professors Spew Insane Bullshit.
Something that each and every lawyer should know. The fucking actual fucking idea behind a fucking corporation is to create some fucking thing that is fucking separate from the fucking investors.
For any lawyer, never mind a law professor, to claim that when the corp pays taxes, and then after that, when the investor pays taxes on dividends or cap gains, that it's double taxation, is a misstatement of law (never mind fact) so huge, their law degrees should be yanked. Furthermore, their name should be stricken from the rolls; and as well, "From every book and tablet, stricken from all pylons and obelisks, stricken from every monument."
I mean really! It is one thing when some rank, rank and file, douche nozzle idiot wing nut signs on to such a bat fucking insane idea. But when a lawyer does it? Never mind a law professor? Fuck a diseased duck!
Ok. I have gone this far, this year (I think) with out referring to a certain bottle-assisted blonde, silly law professor. So that's all I am going to say about that. And I am ready to call it a Friday Evening. I got a song to work on. A cover of some real musicians' stuff. And I hope to post my cover to You Tube tonight. Yea, that douche nozzle pair of anti Internet laws are dead in the water, far as I heard. Yea!
They Love Capitalism, but Don't Know the Basics of Bookkeeping or Accounting.
Their dishonest reasoning? That corps first pay 35% on the corporation's own income. So the people making money on investing their money in the corp, (after the corp pays taxes and only then decides whether to issue dividends, or plow money back into the biz, or invest the profits somewhere else,) it is now being argued, personally paid that 35% tax first when actually the corp paid the tax, before investors pay the 15% tax on their own personal income, after the corporation decides to issue the dividends to investors.
Bullshit. Such utter bullshit, and not even considering that many corps do not pay remotely close to the 35%, to start.
Is it disturbingly humorous that people who claim to love capitalism so much they revere its basic tenets with as much ardor as their love of God and the religions they practice, seem to lack the most basic understanding of corporate bookkeeping and accounting.

Some Republicans are Criminally Evil, Stupid.
The job of running against the current POTUS, never mind being ...POTUS is NOT at all about how well one can condescend to some journalist. These people are idiots, if they think that is at all a qualification. They might as well be cheering the candidates ability to knit sweaters.

SOPA and Dishonest Wing Nut Liars.
I originally typed up some longer screed, but I thought better of it. Here is my concise argument.
Law Professors. Particularly Constitutional Law Professors fucking should fucking recognize that fucking commercial speech, and fucking political speech, are not the fucking same. Actually where real people are concerned, political speech gets the higher value. But when we are talking about corporations trying to engage in political speech that directly can impact an election, we, reasonable people, think. Whoa. If you don't have the right to vote, on account of not being a natural person, do you really have much of a right to participate in the elective process, if you really don't have a right to participate in the elective process?
As absurd as it is, any and every state government could outlaw all actions by all corporations in their states. It won't ever happen, I would guess. But all, any US State (or territory with that level of law making authority) can totally strip all corps of not only the right of speech, but all so called rights, by merely (and I know it's a not easy thing to do) repealing their corp law.
Now if a state government can outlaw totally corporations, doesn't it follow they can muzzle them? And I mean not only as far as speech, but muzzle them in any way imaginable?
Put that in your wing nut crack pipe, and smoke it!
Hey. I did the rewrite with out calling anyone a fuck, or some fucking thing. Good for me.
Us vs Them (And They Suck! Damned Conservatives!)
A conservative is a person who thinks the USA is perfect, except for them god damned liberals.
A liberal is a person who thinks the USA is NOT perfect, and not only because of, or not even mostly because of them damned conservatives. But we don't like them even if they are not the major thing wrong with the country. As a matter of history.

Some, Meaning Too Many GOPers are Evil. Stupid Evil. They Gave Newt a Standing O?
First, the reverse straw man. In extoling the virtues of work, Newt not only dodged the explicitly racist tinge of his earlier black kids should be janitors, uber gaff. But he basically ignored that part and made some actually bland but popular statements on the level of, we can all agree that not strangling grandma is the right way to go.
Now on to the lies.
Arrghh! Again, his theory about how a NY City school's physical plant is run is purely ignorant, and based on a lie. Newt keeps on using the word "janitor" for NY City Custodian. Who is a department head. Who is a manager. Who hires and supervises staff and contractors as he keeps operational what may be a multi million dollar facility. Confusing a NY City Custodian with the guy who actually mops the floor, is like confusing the Boatswain on a destroyer or cruiser, the Warrant Officer who is in charge of the non engineering structure of the ship and the decks, with the seaman who actually swabs the deck.
But hey Newt. You gave a stirring defense of the concept of work. And you not only doubled down on the lie about what a NY City School Custodian is. But you invented or at least spewed a not so common lie that elites don't like people earning money. And those twisted GOPers in S.C. cheered him.

In Observance of MLK Day.
"Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity." ~ Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. 1963.
Hey. Isn't there another GOP debate, tonight? Yes. I just had to get a dig in, today. Could not let that set up go a wasted.

Just Say No To Racist Enablers. Or Cuss The Fuckers Out.
"Because when the race card is played against one of our candidates, it is played against all of us."I mean really? No one from stormfront or the Ron Paul Redneck Neo-Confederate Faction jacked your account? You really stand by this shit? For Fuck's Sake. Give it Up You Racist-Enabler.
Granted. I love to cuss. And racism, and those who condone, excuse, or defend such are high up on my shit list. I feel no guilt in cussing out a mother fucker who is defending plain on it's face racism.
Now really. The ad is not attacking Romney for the racist organization his grandfathers were in. Not even the racist organization his daddy was in. Nor is it attacking Romney for the racist organization he was involved in as a child (potentially against his free will.) What Romney is being attacked there for is being an adult in a racist institution. He is being accused and rightly so, of going to a college that practiced racial segregation.
Again. Any fucking idiot who does not get the fucking facts here. Romney went to a college that practiced racial segregation, racial discrimination against people on account of their races.
That is not trumped up. That is a fact. And there is a presumption his conduct in the past gives rise to. And that presumption is that he was perfectly ok with the Mormon Church's racist practices and positions, before they changed them. Does this mean he is a blatant racist? More likely a negligent one. At least that is the rational inference for someone who attends a racially discriminatory college run by a racially discriminatory institution.
Now does that end the story? Oddly but true, compared to some of those other fuckers still in the race, Romney comes across as one of the least rednecky racist. But I can not really know what he feels deep down inside. I doubt he would be with me on the barricades, merely on account of being GOP. But he does come across as negligently racist, at least, even if not badly, blatantly racist. And for the record I consider negligently racist as not really anti black/brown, but still really doesn't give a fuck about whether or not black/brown/other non white people are actually being treated fairly in America. Compare that to Pat Buchanan who is so scared that the whites are losing control of America that he fucking wrote a book whining about the inevitable fact.
So let's get back to the professor. Now it is one thing if he wants to give a pass to the institution of the Mormon Church, for being more then 10 years behind the Federal Government on racial equality. If that is what the fuck faced ferret actually believes, I am not going to change his racist enabling twisted mind. But to call the ad trumped up requires one to be a liar of such factually denying a level as to be nothing better than a lying assed fuck face weasel. In addition to being a racist enabler.
I got it out of my system. And I feel better for it.
George Carlin vs Wing Nuts. Classic Shit!

James O'Keefe Fucking Up (Himself,) Again.
Go here For The Mind Blowing Stupidity of it All.
From the article:
"In their investigation, the conservative videographers entered polling places, gave the name of recently deceased New Hampshire residents, and were offered ballots by poll workers. In one case, the videographer fled the scene after a poll worker became aware that he was not the deceased voter.
While the videographers were largely careful not to directly assert that they were the deceased voters whose names they were stating, Think Progress noted that in at least one instance, when a poll worker asked a O'Keefe confederate for his name, he gave the name of deceased person.
In addition to potentially putting his accomplices in legal jeapardy, O'Keefe's video largely shows the logical incoherence of the right's voter fraud paranoia and the difficulty of pulling off a large-scale fraud conspiracy.
This morning, the New Hampshire Union-Leader reportedthat officials in the towns where the video was shot are calling for the prosecution of the videographers:"
But my favorite remark in the article:
"Election law expert Rick Hasen, who writes the Election Law Blog, joked in an email to TPM that O'Keefe's team should "next show how easy it is to rob a bank with a plastic gun."

I thnk the writer is painting with too broad a brush, but there's a deep truth at core in this essay. "It is about white self-image." Just look at the current GOP primary. All those dog whistles and in some cases blatant white privilege-serving race baiting? Granted, the GOP has no new ideas, never mind any good ones. So why not play the white is right self image boosting card?
Shit. Rush Limbaugh has doubled down yet again with calling the Obamas uppity niggers -- this time by throwing the dictionary meaning of the insult at them, instead of the word uppity. He says the Obamas like living high on hog with out working for it. Yep. That's the same as calling them uppity niggers. And I hope some major media outlet or player calls him out on it.
This is Election 2012. This is the year the racist revanchists are going to field their last desperate attack. We have to fight back hard. And part of that is knowing what game these right wing, redneck racists are playing.

And looking over that formal phrasing, I am reminded. Tonight is the return of Masterpiece Theatre's "Downton Abbey." Yes. I am a sucker for Brit. Aristocratic themed drama. I actually think there is something superior to a society that does not hide the fact there are castes. But here in America, we pretend there are no classes, while people of a certain evil political persuasion bemoan the class warfare against the monied class.
Not that I would prefer to live in Edwardian England (unless I were the Earl or his heir,) but I do have to say there is something to be said for an honest even if more unfair society.
I caught up on the episodes from the first season, as of today. There was one scene in one where some English Version of the Original Rednecks, some trashy criminal shows up on the estate to cause some trouble. He had been half of a performing act with the butler, much to the butler's shame, back in the day. He was on the run, and extorting the butler for sanctuary and support. The filthy minded proto redneck overplayed his hand by barging into the manse, and giving lip to His Lordship. The exchange between them went something like this. His Lordship said that he would give the trash twenty Pounds, and that the trash should never come near the estate ever again. The trash, not understanding the generosity of that offer, lipped off. He said something like, you think just because of your title you can have your way. His Lordship replied, that yes, because of his title he could have his way. And if the trash showed up again, His Lordship would have him arrested for theft, and blackmail, and sent to jail for at least five years.
Game. Set. Match. To His Lordship.

If You Don't Think This Picture of Michelle Obama is Racist, You Very Well Could Be a Racist Yourself.
Katy Perry's Divorce
Firstly, I am sorry for her, that it did not work out, and any unpleasantness.
But I do confess the idea of her being out there and single again is appealing, even if I likely only have a 10% chance of meeting her in the next couple years.
That's right. I said 10%. Not the average guy's .10%.
I get around. I go places. And I am trying to get back in Entertainment. If I do, that % will go up quite a bit. But shit. I do know the easy but expensive way to meet celebrities. You just have to pay for a ticket to some charity event, or gala, or what not event. That's how you get to meet those kinds of people (save getting the killer comp. I love getting the killer comp, or party invite. This is partially how I do my networking, actually.) Trick is holding their attention for more than 10 seconds after the hello, how do you do, part.
Anyway. Winter Fashion Week in NYC is coming up soon. I do not want to pay for a pass, but shit, it might be the only way for me to get some good networking in. Decisions Decisions. And yes it is networking. I'm no body's champion at it, but let's just say I am finally at the point where the bartenders at Sardi's know me by sight. I know a couple of them by name, at this point. Met one of the Asst. Managers too!

Who Actually Gives a Shit About Iowa Day, Quickies.
I don't get the bullshit over Alan Colmes calling Santorum crazy for bringing the dead baby home. I don't really understand why the hospital let them bring the baby's corpse home. They would never let that happen with an adult corpse. Am I right, or am a fucking A right?
I expect Mittens to win Iowa by a nose. Mostly because the others have been mostly slugging at each other, save Newt, who's whining like a little girl about Mittens. Point is, Mittens, if he made the right call, should be concentrating on getting his people to the caucuses. In what ever way makes them happy and made to feel special. Perhaps not Lincolns. Maybe a Buick sorta SUV looking thing, with some nice munchies and shit, in back.
I expect the press to treat this like it is decisive. It ain't, except for anyone who did does so badly they pull out before New Hampshire.
I was well amused to see Mrs. Palin piss on Bachmann, telling her it's time to pack it up. What I really would find entertaining is a food fight between the two of them like what have been going on with the boys in the primary. Meow! Chick Fight! But not the visual kind. Just a pair of not really all that deeply ladylike phonies letting lose with their bad ass, fight dirty redneck selves. You can take the trash out of the trailer but ya can't take the trailer out of the trash.
And I am losing steam here and I got shit to do so I will end with the following. Stolen from the comment section of a certain other blogger, from a commenter I usually think is not that stable, but does get it right, time to time:
"Mental projection is a motherfucker."
That's all for now!

What's My Favorite Pet Peeve? Right Wing Racism!
Never minding that it is (seems) an article of faith among white right wingers that their heart, their frame of mind on that specific matter, the question,"Am I a Racist?" matters more than things like? Idunnknow? The racial disparity of political choices and legislation, and other ideas they favor?
Don't judge me based on the results of my desires and works! Only judge me based on my claim of being race neutral in my ideology!
What fucking racist shit these racist wing nuts believe. But like I said on my FB wall. We do not live in the post racial era. Instead, we live in the Post Archie Bunker Era. Over the top racism is pase. Subtle, soft, tone deaf racism is the big problem. As opposed to blatant and knowing racism, subtle, soft racism needs cover. It needs excusing. It needs cop outs. And that explains the existence of this wing nut "motive" theory.
It should not matter one bit that the South Carolina voter id law would no doubt actually, disproportionately impact "black" voters. That's not what we were specifically wanting in our hearts. We only wanted to suppress Democratic votes. So therefore we are not racists.
Yes you fuckers are racist. But moving on, I saw something actually a few days ago on That Wingnut Law Professor's page. I really did not notice it before, as a regular feature per se. I don't rubber neck his page all that much, but he comments on race, from the wing nut point of view, regularly on Saturdays. It blew his tiny racist mind that some people think that so called color blindness could be racist. Fact he only recently learned of this theory -- well I will pull my punch. He's a Securities law Prof. Not a civil rights Prof., never mind Political Scientist. But let me say that if that idea is news to him, he has no fucking business talking about anything having to do with race relations in America. But I could say the same thing for most GOPers/Republicans/wingnuts. Talk about being out of one's natural element. Anyway . . . Go Here For The Insane Bull's Pizzle Drizzle.
Fucker has the nerve to post a vid to Martin Luther King Jr. to support his view. Fucking excuse me? Granted I have dealt with this kind of grotesque ignorance before. I distinctly remember schooling some conservative on the actual meaning of the, "Judged not by the color of their skin," part of the famous "I Have a Dream," speech. What I did was show the guy the preceding lines of the speech, where the actual meaning and context is made plain. Dr. King was not preaching the idea of instant race blindness. He was instead talking about an America where his children would not be discriminated against, because they were black (or make that NOT WHITE, to be more exact.)
And I did convince that one conservative that he had misunderstood the lesson there. But the sad truth is that all too many many right wingers either don't get the real plain meaning of the speech. Or the sneakier smarter ones get it. But they are clever enough to get it, that misreading it, and adopting a color blindness value will better serve their goal. And that goal is to delay, as long as possible, the inevitable end of white privilege in America. And of course, that goal is purely racist.
Damn I went long. But it will be Black History Month. Soon enough. I got a head start on shit!

I Don't Mean Edit, But Don't These Wing Nuts Read Their Shit Before Hitting "Publish?"
But do you remember that routine from SNL,"I Hate it When . . . .?" That was a skit where these two rednecky guys describe various self inflicted painful situations, beginning if not also ending each installment with words to the effect of, "Don't ya hate it when that happens?"
I just read something that stupid and that rednecky. I won't go into the why of it, and the who of it, but I was reading this citizen wing nut's blog. He's not know for any thing. Just a guy. And he was doing a blog/review of some restaurant. And (once my mind latched on to the example) he reminds me of the redneck skit. I will jump to the chase. Dude. If you walk into a restaurant, and it has family style seating, and you hate that shit? Then turn your stupid ass around and fucking leave the place. Don't let the hostess (after waiting for her to show up) seat you. Any complaining about the experience after that point is all on you. It's like listening to the redneck idiot complaining about how it feels after he shoves, himself, chop sticks in his own ears.
What the fuck dood. See a therapist. And I mean mental health therapist!
