I’ve been catching up on the day’s threads. It’s been a fine, fine day of snark and nastiness from you all.
I wouldn’t normally play favorites, but pour encourager les proles and all that… I’ll just note that I had to have a cigarette and a bit of a lie down after this comment from Feebog in Anne Laurie’s thread, in response to Erick Son of Erick’s lament that their enablers have not yet convinced the meeja to buff the knobs of the Republicant candidates to an appropriately sticky and happy ending:
What a wet load of dog crap. Look Ewick, your candidates all suck. You can take off the big red rubber noses, the funny yellow shoes and the makeup and they are still clowns. Blaming the failure of this group of morons on their consultants and handlers is lame.
Did Perry’s consultants coach him to debate like a seven year old who forgot his lines in the Christmas pageant? No, I think he did that all by his self. Did Cain’s managers turn him into a serial sexual harasser and adulterer? Anybody on Bachmann’s staff suggest to her that she say something completely stupid and insane everytime she opened her pie hole?
As for Newt and the Romneybot, they have both have more baggage than a 747 the day before Thanksgiving. As a campaign manager or consultant you can hope the voters have short memories, but when the gaffes just keep on coming, what’s a Mother to do? Nobody told Newt to describe Paul Ryans plan to gut medicare Rightwing Social Engineering. Given, someone may have advised to walk it back the very next day, but I doubt they told Newt to twist himself into a pretzel while doing so. And no one told Romney to go on Fox and completely blow an interview. In the end, Romney made that decision himself. But at least now we know why his handlers have kept him away from reporters like a leper.
No Ewick, the sad bunch you have as the Republican field is the direct result of the likes of you and your rabid rightwing rednecks. You have moved all of these candidates so far to the right that they are cartoon cutouts rather than viable candidates. And for that we thank you.
