Good ol’ Mitt. The quintessential White Guy. The Great White Hope of the Republican Party and NASCAR crowd, whose job it is to vanquish the infidel, Barack Hussein Obama (the gay, Muslim, anti-Christ, communist n*gger) by replacing him as the President of these United States. Yee haw!
It should have been simple. It seems that President Obama has been pretty much a bummer for even his most ardent followers. Much like President Clinton, who’s character was stained by a blue dress and the combined resources of the Republican Party every day for years with the hypocrital impeachment proceedings led by Newt Ginrich (who was himself having an affair while his wife battled cancer) and his henchman, the prosecutor, Starr.
Does anybody even remember who Clinton ran against? I had to look it up. Oh, yeah, it was Bob Dole… another white guy who seemed to be born in a suit. The Republicans just don’t seem to be able to come up with anyone who is even remotely less corrupt or acceptable than the Democrats, no matter how lame the incumbent is.
They have outdone themselves this time, though, with Mitt Romney, the venture (vulture?) capitalist and bishop of the Mormon church. Matt Taibbi has laid bare the malfeasance that Bain Capital has been guilty of under the leadership of Mitt, the king of the hostile takeover, that helped some companies and destroyed others by looting and then bankrupting them. He and others from Rolling Stone have also documented and revealed the outsourcing of jobs and companies for which Bain is responsible.

This guy is such a creation of Privilege that I wonder if he ever had to learn to tie his own shoes. It’s not just his incredible personal fortune ($225 million or so) that puts him in the stratosphere of hierarchy. It is the rank he inherited within the Mormon Church as well. One of my favorite commentators, Stephen Pizzo, has been delving into the bazaar teachings of the Mormon cult for weeks now. He has a new website called What Mitt Believes. Take a gander at this one: http://whatmittbelieves.net/?page_id=390.
The teachings of the church are weird, racist, and objectionable, but then, I find many of the teachings of all the monotheistic religions just as disconcerting. The question to my mind is just how much of an influence this would have on his performance in a possible Presidency. Just how much weight do you think the other world leaders, including the physicist Andrea Merkle, would give to Romney given that his religion teaches that the earth is 9,000 years old and his family wears magic undergarments? France, for instance, has decided that the church is a cult and has rejected their obnoxious missionaries. Apparently, as a bishop in the church Mitt Romney’s word cannot be disagreed with by any Mormon in good standing, because he is supposedly divinely inspired. Just great.
Now, the latest jaw-dropper is an article by Gordon Duff which details not only what an intellectual numbnut Romney is, but also that fact that he is a draft dodger who’s father, Gov. George Romney, created a new class of draft deferment especially for his unstable son, Mitt: AND that he may be an illegal alien as well!

Well, this raises a whole raft of new questions that will not be asked during tomorrow’s debate between Obummer and Romney. One might think that the same constitutionalists who have been questioning the citizenship status of Obama might also turn their attention to the legal status of Romney. But, so far, this does not seem to be an issue for them. Hummm….
Could this election be more of a clusterfuck? It exemplifies all of the elements of dysfunction, craziness and corruption that paralyzes the government as a whole. Oh, and bring in the fact that Romney needs Ohio to win and that the easily hackable electronic voting machines with no paper trail and Diebold software are once again being created and controlled by Republican minions.
It is said that we have two “brains.” One is between our ears, and the other is in our gut. Am I alone in feeling sick in the gut when I contemplate the time between now and election night? I have to continually remind myself that I have felt much the same before every election since Nixon beat McGovern, and I managed to survive all of them. What a freakin’ pantload this one is, though!
High drama on the campaign trail as the nation of swine turns its collective attention once again to the political trough for its ration of swill from the mainstream media. Billions of dollars being funneled into television ads to buy the election once again. Everyone wrings their hands about the problem that could be solved simply and in one fell swoop. The FCC licenses the airwaves, after all. Like France, America could decide that the licenses to do business of the different news agencies and channels depend on their making available equal FREE TIME for all those political parties who qualify to be on a ballot for three months to state their views before a national election. And, every candidate who is on the ballot would be included in the debates. Voila! No more groveling for campaign funds to get elected. Nothing would change our government more. It’s not so much the people as the process that ensures the corruption ruining our country.
Where in the world is all these bazillions of advertising dollars going anyway? One would think that the news agencies would be awash in money, not cutting staff and on-site reportage due to cutting costs. Is it all just being dumped into the long pockets of the talking heads to ensure their complicity in the political pimp job story line? Maybe it’s going towards tickets into the secret facilities to ride out the contrived storm to come. I really have no idea.
Romney and Obama will go at it again tomorrow night; I guess, once again, I feel compelled to “stay tuned.”
