Do you remember The Superfly, Jimmy Snuka? I sure do and no one who was 10 years old from the WWF’s golden era will ever forget him. His matches with The Macho Man are the things of legend. So does Cenk Uygur from The Young Turks as he invokes images of the Superfly while breaking down the best lines of the third foreign policy debate between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. The three debates were epically some of the least respectful ever held. While Obama did not seem prepared for the ‘tactics’ that Romney employed in the first debate (ie: bald faced lying about major issues) by the third you could faintly hear over the absent applause “I am a real American…”
McCain just won’t stop. Benghazi is a dead issue. Other then it’s overt politicization Benghazi has never actually been an issue other then an opportunity by the GOP to exploit the attack for traction during their abysmal presidential campaign. I’m not the biggest Maddow fan but her response to McCain’s latest round of questions regarding Benghazi dismantles what this strategy by the Republicans is all about. First, she gives the answers which to this point are entirely public knowledge. Then she goes fourth to explain the motivations to keep Susan Rice out of the Secretary Of State position in order to clear a senate seat now held by John Kerry. To the point where in the same interviews GOP officials speak to John Kerry’s great aptitude for the job. But wait a minute: wasn’t John Kerry the wrong man for the job because of the international challenges in 2004? No, what we needed then according to these same people was George W Bush.
First off, NSFW, because of extreme language.
If you want ‘the’ angry election response video of all youtube, congratulations, because you’ve found it. Shelly Dankert of Nebraska Attitude is full of nicotine, beer, god damned butter scotch schnaps, chips ‘n cheese dip for her supper and rage. But mostly rage. See, 4 years ago (yes 4) she got her first computer to teach the internet a lesson about conservatism (which is good) and Obama (who is evil). She has been following The Drudge Report all night long and just accepted that the Romney Landslide Drudge told her was going to happen actually was going to blow up in a reversal of fortune. This is a self-pwn. But it’s also a pwn of a poor impressionable woman who becomes caught in the nets of a manipulative media’s multibillion dollar misinformation campaign. Why did Romney lose???? Because those ‘pussies’ on facebook didn’t share her posts. TH’ATS WHY! Yep. Witness the Drudgery… for it is epic.
A day after General Petraeus exonerated the White House of any cover ups regarding the Benghazi situation Republican representative Dana Rohrabacher pressed on pointing fingers convinced of a grand conspiracy to cover up an act of terrorism. This is despite Obama’s now famous declaration that it was an act of terror in the Rose Garden less then 24 hours after the attack happened. Dana’s convictions led him to Anderson Cooper where he presented his argument directly contrary to the testimony of Petraeus. Cooper responds telling Dana “What you are saying is factually incorrect.” Dana gets quite upset but refuses to discredit the Petraeus testimony or provide evidence Obama is lying. He also neglects to actually say what Obama lies about since Mitt Romney already sank his own ship falsely claiming Obama denied a terror attack in the second presidential debate. Does this look like a lie without evidence? Or does it look like someone who’s really upset that his party just lost a major election and wants something to be angry about. Dana says Anderson Cooper doesn’t have the facts. But when asked if the facts are wrong he refuses to refute them or saying they are lies. It appears facts appear in Dana’s world as Dana wants them to be instead of as they are.
In 2012, when you’ve been shown to clearly be a racist on TV, you have failed. It’s odd when this isn’t exposed by someone else, but issued by the target’s own mouth. Spurned on by results clearly in favor of social tolerance and change Papa Bear couldn’t hold back his emotions enough to paint them as some fiscally driven opinions. The typical method of neo-racism is to code racist statements into seemingly innocuous statements. “Voter ID merely ensures that people won’t commit fraud during elections” at a glance appears fine… till you think about how such a law would primarily affect minorities. Especially when you try to slip that law in as early before the election as possible and the people behind it admit the intention is to give a state to Romney via disenfranchising black voters. But those laws got overturned because they were racist laws. Obama steam rolled the electoral vote and Papa Bear got disappointed. He states that “the white establishment is now the minority” even though almost 70% of the vote was white voters. Seriously though… Bill… tell us what you really mean.
