I know it’s kind of pointless to blog anymore, what with Facebook and the ability to link and comment at a moment’s notice, but yet I continue here, every now and then. Why? I have no idea. I’ve never really cared about stats (I seriously haven’t looked at any of that in years) and have been bored by many other blogs for a long time; it all seems pretty irrelevant. I mean, it is. But anyway, I only ever did this to amuse myself, and so I still post my pictures and embed clips and give the occasional rant…but who gives a shit?
That’s not to say that I don’t appreciate my most certainly massive readership and rabid commenters (“commentors” is a word that does not appear to be spelled correctly either way that I do it, and is marked as misspelled by my browser both ways; oh well). But what is my point? Nothing, really. Just sayin’.
So anyway, politics. For a second. Because it’s so ridiculous that it hardly needs to be said, but yet, I have to say it: The crop of candidates that the GOP has percolating for 2012 are the goddamned funniest group of nuts you’ve ever seen. Obama & Co. have smiles as big as Rahm’s gang did a month ago. Of course it’s early, and anything can happen–even something as unlikely as a plausible Republican candidate–but I would not bet against the re-election of Obama, no matter how much he does to piss off the progressive/liberal community.
That’s not to say I’m unhappy with him. Just, not thrilled about everything. But who is, ever?
But to the point: as I’ve said before, I don’t watch Fox News and don’t have my finger on the pulse of what “today’s right-wing nuts” are thinking, BUTT…and I do mean BUTT, I do check in with National Review every now and then, to see what the established conservative nuts are saying (as opposed to the fringe nuts that hang out everywhere else on the internet). And what I’m saying is, what they’re saying is hilarious:
It’s a real article. Woo! Just throwing the idea out there! Think about it! And the great thing now is that they now allow comments there at NRO, so you can see the mind of the nut in action, gnashing and gnawing and doing the right-wing version of “deliberating.” Funny, funny stuff. When Bachmann isn’t being flat-out rejected by these folks, as she should be, there are still some definite reservations to this idea. And, more hilariously, alternative suggestions:
“Barbour/Bachman” has a certain alliterative appeal, don’t you think?
“Experienced Conservative Leadership!”
That last one really kills me. Hell, they all kill me. But what are they going to do, get behind Newt Gingrich instead? Huckabee? Pa-pa-pawlenty? Nope, it’s Romney, it has to be. There’s no other rational choice. Ha ha, I said “rational.”
