Herman Cain! Pleasures Himself
“Republican presidential contender Herman Cain[!] used campaign funds to buy his own books from his motivational speaking company, Federal Election Commission records show.” [Bloomberg]
Meanwhile, GOP debate open thread at 7:45 ET. Best show this fall.
It’s like Psycho-Neofascist Whack-A-Mole. Every time one of these vile cretins rises to the top of the heap, the screeching RepubliKKKan orcs discover they’re too repulsive for ordinary Huu-mahns to vote for and they plunge back into the hissing, slithering Raiders of the Lost Ark-style viper pit.
@nojo: Somewhat surprisingly, I’m really digging ABC’s Revenge, which just got the greenlight for a full season. It stars Rebecca from Brothers & Sisters as a mysterious young woman who moves to the Hamptons and engages in a guerilla society war against a group of devious rich fucks that conspired to frame her father for a crime he didn’t commit and ruined his life.
Each week, viewers are treated to Rebecca destroying the life one evil Hamptons socialite after another. Talk about zeigeist–it’s actually quite cathartic.
The show is quite a dark and complex neo-noir psychological thriller with no heroes. Episode 1 began with the heartwarming Confucius quote: “Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves.”
Hopefully Rebecca will book a ticket to Pasadena and destroy the Walker family for November sweeps. And REVENGE!
One debate question should be “If you could delete–not amend–one clause or amendment from the Constitution, what would it be? That section is gone like it never existed.” What parts of the Constitution do the candidates really hate? Interstate commerce? Income tax? Direct election of Senators? Civil rights?
@Jesuswalksinidaho: those parts don’t matter. i got my gun and that gives me the freedom to say what i want, by god. that’s all the constitution really says. the rest of that shit is only there so them diverse people can feel somewhat enfranchised some of the time. what freedom loving, capitalist, christian, real american, white male would disagree? i mean really.
@nojo: Is this one from Vegas?
@Dodgerblue: Oh yeah, baby. So many references, so little time.
@¡Andrew!: Unless it involves zombies, I usually wait for the DVD. Except if you can promise me that somebody gets a screwdriver in the eye.
@nojo: I was momentarily confused and thought that “Unless it involves zombies, I usually wait for the DVD. Except if you can promise me that somebody gets a screwdriver in the eye.” was directed at Dodger re: the debate in Vegas.
@SanFranLefty: If you can promise me that somebody gets gutted on stage, I’ll promise you a great debate.
Two Walking Dead references and counting…
@SanFranLefty: Which GOP candidate will get caught up in a Vegas hookers and blow scandal? My money is on Cain!
@Dodgerblue: Santorum. A guy that tightly wound needs some kind of release.
@Dodgerblue and mellbell: Santorum and Marcus Bachmann in the Bellagio penthouse jacuzzi?
@nojo: Goddammit – did I miss my dinosaur show again? And the season premiere of Walking Dead? I’m just not able to follow shows anymore.
/Greetings from the oil patch/reservation border town.
@SanFranLefty: As long as that little story ends with Colonel Mustard in the study with the rope, then it’s cool.
@redmanlaw: Walking Dead opened the season with a 90-minute slashtacular Sunday night.
@nojo: Well supposedly daddy is d-e-a-d, which is why Rebecca is so pissed, however–SPOILER ALERT!–I strongly suspect that daddy’s comin’ back real soon. For REVENGE!
And then there’s gonna be Season 2: Where’s momma? Oh there she is–she’s back. For REVENGE!
@SanFranLefty: For those two, a stall in the Greyhound bus station men’s room.
@redmanlaw: You can catch up this Sunday! They air the previous week’s episode before each new one.
@nojo: Soooo awesome, that show, but the opener was a tad soft, I thought, what say you?
@Tommmcatt Be Fat, And That Be That: I’m inclined to be generous. A show like that I don’t judge by a single episode, but wait for the arcs to develop.
But if you wanna say they stretched sixty minutes of material to fill a ninety-minute hole, I won’t object.
@Tommmcatt Be Fat, And That Be That: @mellbell: @nojo: Wow, I’m nearly sold on it. A co-worker with a seriously odd fixation with zombie craft (his emails from Haiti were outrageous) told me it was only so-so.
But I’m still working through Season 1 of Boardwalk Empire, which I like very much.
@Nabisco: How about this for a closer: There have only been seven episodes to date (six last season, and one so far this season), so you could catch up in less time than it takes for Herman Cain to find Uzbekistan on a map.
