Pass the Popcorn

Multiple Bain executives tell HuffPo (judge that as you may) that Mittens never would have run for President if he was going to have to publicly release his tax returns.

Oh please, oh please, oh please sweet Flying Spaghetti Monster and Ghost of Seamus, let’s have a floor fight in Tampa.

Two words: Shit. Show.

Alternatively: Cluster. Fuck.

Either way, start popping, Stinquers!


I can’t help but notice the irony.

Everything about Obama has been scrutinized including the birf certificate in large part because of a significant segment of the GOPer base is unwilling to accept a black preznit and cling to the fantasy that he’s a Communist Fascist Muslim Atheist Nazi Mao Mao Anti-Colonialist Sleeper Agent.

Yet here’s Mittens who refuse to release documentation about his own finances. What the hell did you expect, Mittens? Run for the highest office of US Amercia and you get put under an electron microscope.

Hypothetically, what would happen if the hapless presumptuous nominee Mittens is forced to quit (I don’t think it will happen, but who knows)? Who becomes the GOPer candidate?

Assuming there was a floor fight, who could step up to the mic that wasn’t crazy/racist/closeted gay/Birther/pseudo-Libertarian/crazy?

Yes, I said crazy twice. I like crazy.

@ManchuCandidate: @matador1015:

Well, won’t this be the fucking shitshow of the century between the William F. Buckley and Michele Bachmann wings of the party.

To answer your question:


The “smart one.” The one that Daddy wanted to be the next prezident. How the fuck Shrub got there first is still a conundrum.

You heard it here. Brown wife and brown kids, per Bush the Elder.

Can form complete sentences and correctly pronounce “nuclear”

Doesn’t scare the country club types, because he knows how to say nice things about the Indian computer programmer-turned-libertarian-CEO.

In all honesty, wink/nod, doesn’t give a fuck who the gheyz are diddling or marrying, or what the ladiez are doing with their lady-bitz.

So if – big IF – Mittens decides to withdraw because Ann’s MS suddenly flares up and he wants to “spend time with the family” I could see Jeb doing a cake walk to the nomination. To quote the late great Ann Richards, their father was born with a silver foot in his mouth, and his brother George W was born on third and thought he hit a triple, so why not Jeb next?

My take is that Jeb dare not run given the shitshow that was his father (easy to demonstrate) and the complete clusterfuck that was his brother (no need to demonstrate). If you pin Jeb down on his support for the crazy his brother championed, you should win. And if you don’t, I’m moving to Belgium.

@SanFranLefty: Do they still have a William F. Buckley wing? More of a William F. Buckley cubby at this point. Rahm Emmanual sneaks in and hides his weed there when he’s in town.

I think the paultards will be up to hijinks, frankly. They can force the committee to allow Ron Paul to speak at this point, can’t they? At the very least they’ll protest and make much bruhaha, the goddam buggy hippies.

-Will Palin show if she doesn’t get to speak?

-Which power ensemble will Marcus have picked out for Michelle?

-Have you guys seen the constipated tools they picked out to model on their website?

It’s that season again, political junkies. This event starts the election season drowned in a sea of terrible suits, red separates, and American flag tee-shirts. Fuck them, say I. But that’s not the point I’m making. The point is this: it’s starting up again, it’s gonna be a good one, and it’s gonna be fun

ADD: You really must click that link over and over again, the better to watch as each model looks tool-ier and more backed up than the last. It’s like it’s an ad for a Diverticulitis Society Convention. Go on, click the link, click back, then click again.

I dare you.

@Tommmcatt May Just Have Some MJ In His System As Well, So What?: Can. Not. Fucking. Wait.

/signed, political junkie

P.S. what’s up with the tooly models?

P.S.S. Marcus will have Michele in some sort of aqua green-blue get-up, to bring out the cra-cra-crazee eyez.

@blogenfreude: I’ll be in New Zealand, Argentina, or Spain, depending upon which country needs Spanish-speaking attorneys and non-Spanish-speaking scientists the most.

And there’s always Iceland, per Benedick.

@SanFranLefty: GF has Japanese GF living in NZ – it might be the answer, if you ask her. Problem is it’s close enough to the equator to doom us to BURN.

@SanFranLefty: I would give anything for it to be that color, but sequined, like a Mardi Gras drag queen.

@SanFranLefty: @blogenfreude: Papua New Guinea. I hear the ham-hocks are to die for.

You know, there’s something to be said for getting an absentee ballot and spending the rest of the election season in Canada, eh?

or turks and caicos?
i’m heavily involved these days with a dear friend who is battling stage 4 pancreatic cancer. yes, god is a dick.

@baked: Hey you! We’ve missed you around these parts. How’s the weed growing?

@baked: A high school friend of Mr Cyn’s just lost his 17 year old son to pancreatic cancer. There is no god.

On a brighter note, good to see you here. I’m expecting the RMLs for a stinque-up in the cocktail corner any minute now. Wish you were all here!
