Imus Guest Chris Wallace, The GOP & The Theater Of The Absurd

The above is a graphic of a rare snow bull. Apparently the Republican party has decided to try, and snow the American electorate with their bull-shit. What is the GOP's answer to unpopular Democrat policies? Run a Republican candidate to the left of President Obama. The GOP can't understand why the base isn't enthused with their choices. Given the state of our country, our economy, and the response to the TEA party by the Republican establishment. It might be time to think about taking up drinking- seriously. Dear GOP, call me when you're sober serious.

Imus guest this morning, on Imus In The Morning, Chris Wallace said, it looks like the Republican base is unhappy with their choices for the Republican nomination. Mitt Romney can't poll above 25% that leaves 75% who want someone else for their Presidential nominee. Chris Wallace, made reference to the Republican base "Waiting For Godot". The play by Samuel Beckett, that is performed in the Theater Of The Absurd. The Republicans still haven't found who they're looking for.

FNC's Chris Wallace on what Republicans are looking for in a 2012 candidate, and his take on Mitt Romney's bid for the nomination.

So don't worry about tomorrow
Take it today
Forget about the cheque
We'll get hell to pay.......

Call Me When You're Sober

Come find me -
no way am I waiting around for the Republicans to deliver Godot.

Imus Guest Bill O'Reilly "Killing Lincoln"

Imus In The Morning, Imus guest Bill O'Reilly,thinks that Abraham Lincoln was the greatest leader this country has ever had. Lincoln was certainly tested during his time as President.

My personal opinion, Lincoln has been lionized, popular accounts of his life, and Presidency have been sanitized for the masses. Was Abraham Lincoln a significant President in our history? I don't think that's even debatable, he did keep the Union together. Many of Lincoln's shortcomings, and controversial opinions on slavery for instance, do not get the same attention, and focus as Lincoln's positive accomplishments. To get a picture of who Lincoln the man was during his times, it's important to take into account, his negatives as well as his positives. I have witnessed modern historians lionizing, sanitizing Lincoln, for example a group of Lincolnphiles. I have witnessed the same behavior with Jacksonphiles, Indian removal ( Cherokee removal Georgia, Jackson “Build a fire under them. When it gets hot enough, they'll move.) Spinning historical Presidencies through the sentimental politically correct prism-ism of today's modern trends, entertaining, but are they accurate? How do I know that our current written watered down politically correct histories are producing historical illiterates?

Thaddeus McCotter, The Media & Reindeer Games

The purpose of a political primary election, is to determine who will be the respective political party's nominee, in the general election. During the primary season, the declared candidates will, attend political rallies, debates, kiss babies, lots, and lots of babies, they will appear on television, radio, and give interviews in what is described as a vetting process. Basically it's an opportunity for members of different political parties in this case the Republicans, to kick the tires, look under the hood, and slam the doors of the declared Presidential hopefuls. During this process, the candidates will be narrowed down through a process of elimination.

Which brings us to Representative Thaddeus McCotter, declared candidate for the Presidency of the United States, the media, and reindeer games.
"Refers to any fun activities which are enjoyed only by members of a clique, the fact of which is often purposefully made obvious to anyone existing outside of said clique in order to make them feel inadequate and left-out. Refers to "Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer".

Rep Thaddeus McCotter, has been left out of the last Republican debate. In fact he's not been able to participate in any of the Republican debates to date. Rep McCotter, and a few others are not meeting the Media's standard for inclusion into Republican debates. The standard required is to be polling at least at 4% in the Republican primary polls. The reason this standard was adopted as an industry standard is unclear. It appears that NBC network used it as their standard, and it became adopted by the other networks. Obviously our country has held elections before there ever was television, networks, and the media deciding for the electorate who they will watch and listen to in political debates. The media loves to pick our candidates for us.

Currently to meet the media's high standards, for inclusion into their debates: You are only required to make outrageous unsubstantiated claims, for instance "Gardasil vaccine cause retardation". And if you get some blow back, double down on your alleged 3rd hand heresy. It helps when holding political rallies, to mention American icons, and "Wish them a happy birthday on the anniversary of their death" You could highlight your social values. "Gay people can be cured of homosexuality through prayer". You might want to point out what you have in common with other famous Americans.

Thaddeus McCotter doesn't have a prayer of meeting the media standards. When the issue of Social Security, and it's solvency was questioned, McCotter responded with his plan to save the Social Security program HERE. I know what you're thinking, I don't think he get's it either. The people in this country are concerned with high chronic unemployment, the economy, and the long term viability of our social safety net - the future of entitlements. Sooo..... Shouldn't he be commenting about how orangy Jon Huntsman looked at the last debates? Surely Huntsman is using some toxic brand of spray on tan, that the FDA should never have approved. Why doesn't McCotter point out how dangerous our northern border has become? Has anyone noticed what's been crossing into the United States, from Canada lately? Canada, the great pink threat to the north, that everyone ignores. Romney was endorsed by Pawlenty, and Perry was endorsed by Jindal. Could McCotter land the most coveted endorsement of them all "The Motor City Mad Man". It wouldn't hurt if McCotter, would try portraying himself as a risk taker. McCotter, I dare you to sit through a film retrospective of your fellow Michigander. If only McCotter would stop running his campaign by responding to the urgent challenges facing Americans. And started accusing the other Republican candidates of a multitude of irrational, not fully thought out, real and or imagined political sins...maybe just maybe, the media would include him in their debates, not to be confused with public debates. The media would include him for no other reason than the entertainment value, and ratings. Because let's not kid ourselves folks, as a friend of mine recently remarked, Joplin Tornado Survivor - David Bell: A media event does not = a debate. Amen Brother Amen.

Placing a Flag at Ground Zero

When our political leaders are ending their 9-11 memorial speeches today, asking for God's Blessing for our country, it's important to remember all the blessings he's already gifted us. Three Hundred and Forty Three, rushed into towers turned into hell on earth, and never returned. May God Bless them, and all the people who were murdered on September 11th 2001. We Will Never Forget.

TGIF, The Political Circus Edition - Make It Fast, Make It URGENT

The level of American's naivete and gullibility are endearing qualities. They are part of our culture's charm. Except when we are circling the drain.

Don't take any wooden nickels was a popular saying back during the Great Depression. It was an admonishment to the huckleberries - the country rubes, not to be duped by the city slickers. It's still good advice today. Basically, don't let yourself be cheated or duped by fast talking hucksters.

I watched the President's speech given to the joint session of congress. Presenting the overview of his new bill - The American Jobs Act. During President Obama's, he repeated pass this bill 17 times, without explaining specifically, what the bill would entail. How much "The American Jobs Act" would cost or how it would be paid for. The President expressed the urgent need to pass a bill, that he won't be explaining the specifics of, the "nickles and dimes" for a couple more weeks.

President Obama told Congress it's time to "stop the political circus and actually do something to help the economy."

If this bill needs passed so urgently, why hasn't it been given to both branches of congress to read? The current price tag of "The American Jobs Act" is 437 billion dollars. Remember, don't take any wooden nickles ;)

You're not shy, you get around
You wanna fly, dont want your feet on the ground
You stay up, you wont come down

You wanna live, you wanna move to the sound.....

You play tricks on my mind
You're everywhere but you're so hard to find
You're not warm or sentimental
You're so extreme, you can be so temperamental.......

You say its urgent
Make it fast, make it urgent
Do it quick, do it urgent
Gotta rush, make it urgent
Want it quick
Urgent, urgent, emergency
Urgent, urgent, emergency
Urgent, urgent, emergency
Urgent, urgent, emergency
So urgent, emergency
Emergency... emergency... emergency...
It's urgent...........
