Consider Me Unconvinced

I like Ezra Klein. I think his new website, Vox, is a handy tool for people who needs the bullshit cut when they get their news on the fly.

However, on the splash, is a story that posits that the disappearance of R-Money will open up the field for younger blood. Mitt himself even alluded to this conjecture:

“I believe that one of our next generation of Republican leaders, one who may not be as well known as I am today, one who has not yet taken their message across the country, one who is just getting started, may well emerge as being better able to defeat the Democrat nominee,” he told supporters on the call. “In fact, I expect and hope that to be the case.”

Well. Touche, Jeb Bush.

This article is in direct contradiction of a post I just eked out, where I said in so many words that it is Bush, not the clown show, that stands to benefit from Mitt’s departure. The author says there may be space for Scott Walker.

Pardon me. I have to snicker for a minute. The “Molotov” nebbish. Who can’t get his bible right (I bet a shitload of Christ-worshippers believe that the fish proverb comes from the bible). This baby-faced lightweight? Come on. Vox is pulling my leg. And Christie? A provincial, braying,bloated hamburger-filled crook. There is no way the Mr. Creosote of New Jersey has a chinaman’s chance at the nomination-but he’s just narcissistic to try anyway.

Taking Romney seriously is ill-advised. I wouldn’t be caught dead agreeing with him on anything. I’m afraid to say that this “thinking man’s” thought-experiment rings hollow. I’m sure that one of these fucking fools will take Iowa, but I don’t see them getting any further than that. I think us political junkies are all just wanking at this point, waiting for some real campaigning. Who will draw first blood on Jeb? I wanna see that.

If I Could Fly

There would be a shortage of fucks I can give regarding deflated NFL footballs.

One Wanker Down

…and too many to go. Professional bridesmaid Mitt Romney has bowed out for 2016. Will the Republican clown show gain from this departure?

No.

Look, the electorate wants a stable, Establishment candidate who doesn’t want to turn the country upside down to fix it. Besides, all the clown show has on showcase is their naivete. They don’t really know how politics works. They will not be allowed anywhere near the sausage room. Then again, some of them have gotten close-witness the spectacle of Joni Ernst. She’s a senator who thinks that liberals never had plastic bags on their fucking shoes in the winter when they were growing up. What a bunch of atavistic balderdash. It’s a cynical manipulation of the poor deluded souls who think America or anything for that matter…ain’t the way it used to be.

Maybe that’s true, though. We have a black president. Gay rights, though still on shaky footing, are expanding everywhere. We’re decriminalizing dope, slowly but surely. We are trying to protect immigrant families. We’re insuring the infirm with the help of the federal government.I guess I can see why the geriatrics in the voting bloc are panicking. America is changing, but see here, none of this stuff will put a crimp in their Depends. There’s simply more freedom and promotion of the general welfare being served up, and it’s being done with none of their hard earned(whatever) tax money. While we still have problems like an out of control war machine, police brutality, snooping on anyone with nary an investigation, the systematic disenfranchising of particular voting blocs…we’ve inherited and propagated many of the nefarious policies of the Bush years. There is much to do.

Anyways, there’s the old enthusiasm gap for the GOP wannabes. Conservative voters will ultimately go with the Establishment candidate, the safe bet that could perhaps snarl Hillary Clinton’s coast to victory in the general. That candidate will probably be Jeb Bush. What never fails is the slide to the right or the left once a candidate becomes the leader of the free world. Jeb ultimately won’t be a friend to moderates. He will become a giant jerkoff like his older brother, eager to rollback the measly gains the public has managed to wrest from the Big Machine, the great sausage factory on The Hill.

The motley fools comprising the GOP field of candidates are delusional. Even Sarah Palin and Lindsey Graham think that they have a shot. They simply don’t have a bench. Every one of their “candidates” will never see the majors.

Bozos. Grifters. Narcissists. Not a single earnest Joe or Josephine in the bunch. Jeb will mow them down. It’s the easiest fait accompli to predict. Sayonara, Mitt. Move over, chuckles.
