2010 Elections

How lame is this? And love the token black guy:


They’re like teabagging zombies. And why was this never aired?  Because the ‘adults’ at the NRSC realized this was ritual seppuku.

As RML points out, Green Day did a lot to move things along in 2006 and 2008. And the often quiet but always insightful CassandraSaid suggested this clip of the band’s trademark song to close out Election Night.

Oh, and “head movies”?  Rent Tropic Thunder, or better yet, Google “Simple Jack” and trailer.



Joe Manchin (D) has a new ad out for the West Virginia Senate race, and it trumps Carly’s demon sheep.

“We need 1,000 laser systems put in the sky, and we need it right now,” Raese is shown saying in the video clip.

Then in comes that John Williams Darth Vader theme music, images of people in storm trooper costumes on parade, and laser beams from the sky wiping out a public school, clean drinking water and a Social Security card. The final image: John Raese’s head on a storm trooper body, with laser beams raining down upon Earth in the background.

“John Raese’s ideas aren’t just crazy — they’re downright dangerous,” the announcer says.


They will do your political ad for 120 bucks – cash American:

Maybe Stinque should fundraise and order an ad against Paladino? Or Angle? Or Rand Paul? Or … that idiot in Alaska who knocked off Lisa Murkowski?

“We have a constitutional remedy,” Broden said then. “And the Framers say if that don’t work, revolution.”

That’s GOP House candidate Stephen Broden, running in a luckily heavily democratic District, making his willingness for violent overthrow of the government known.  After his interviewer pressed him on whether the option of violent revolution was still in play, he said:

The option is on the table. I don’t think that we should remove anything from the table as it relates to our liberties and our freedoms.

This warmonger is, of course, a pastor by profession. It’s a good thing our country’s Republican leaders don’t actually like to fight in wars, and are too busy manning up for the Texas Air National Guard, popping out a little Elizabeth Cheney 9 months and 2 days after married men without children become eligible for service, or being disqualified from service because they have/are Limbaugh-sized anal cysts. Thus, Broden was quickly condemned by the Dallas County GOP for being “inappropriate”.

Note to the GOP:  inappropriate is a loose fart when you’re meeting the Libyan Ambassador; talking about violent overthrow of your government while running for office from the Party that made America the shitsack it is today is fucking inexcusable.
