The Election 2016
It will soon be the start of the wildest, and dumbest, nomination process in recorded history. It couldn’t be anything else, with the Republican line-up of political bantam weighters bending over backward to convince Tea Party voters who is the most conservative. It would be like Snow White (Hillary, off white and Elizabeth, cadmium white)and the seven dwarfs if only there were seven but at last count there were at least ten. So, instead, it looks more like a Dumb, Dumber or Dummest contest that should prove rich pickings for political analysts and Jon Stewart and his ilk. As a sample of the future entertainment consider Sarah Palin’s answer to the threat of an expansionist Putin: ”…the only thing that stops a bad guy with a nuke is a good guy with a nuke.” Just what we need, a nuclear war.
Rick Santorum believes that “President Obama wants everybody in America to go to college. What a snob … Oh, I understand why he wants you to go to college. He wants to remake you in his image.” No we wouldn’t want an educated public.
“I will tell you: It’s three agencies of government, when I get there, that are gone: Commerce, Education and the — what’s the third one there? Let’s see. …” ithus says Rick Perry , betraying an uncertain grasp in his command of data if it comes in sizes greater than two points.
Michelle Bachman suggested that God had brought about an earthquake to send a message and then later confused John Wayne the actor with John Wayne Gracy, a notorious serial killer. If God sends earthquakes she might appoint Jesus as head of FEMA, as Jesus was previously sent to clean up the mess the world was in.
“I wouldn’t rule anything out. I think when you have the lives of Americans at stake and our freedom loving allies anywhere in the world, we have to be prepared to do things that don’t allow those measures, those attacks, those abuses to come to our shores.” That is Scott Walker on how to deal with ISIS. What’s more, he touted himself as being able do deal with ISIS and used his attack on state employees, stripping them of the right of collective bargaining as an example. Yes, he could take ISIS’s employment rights away from them. mmm, that would certainly do the trick.
“Just because a couple people on the Supreme Court declare something to be ‘constitutional’ does not make it so.” said Rand Paul. This means that Rick Perry would close three departments, assuming he could remember which ones, and Paul wants to override the Supreme Court. Anyone here remember that small detail about the Supreme Court in the Constitution?”
“Ayn Rand makes the best case for the morality of democratic capitalism.” –Paul Ryan, praising the anti-democratic Ayn Rand, who once said, “Democracy is a totalitarian manifestation; it is not a form of freedom.” Goody. What we need is less democracy and if you see my blog below that’s what were getting.I mentioned earlier that the race could be amusing like Dumb, Dummer, Dumbest. The only problem is that we’re not talking about a movie and think if one of these nut cases gets elected and the Republicans control Congress. Their movie will be the equivalent of King Kong and Frankenstein paring up to do a job on the U.S.
