I've collected a little grab bag of American political campaign secrets that they don't want you to know, and I've spilled the beans. Little folks like you shouldn't know garbage like this.
We'll start out with one of the jokes of the week. Bill Maher made a funny about the possibility of an Obama October Surprise (OOS!) where he announces that he's going to decriminalize marijuana. From someone who's as big a dope smoker as Bill Maher with a $1,000,000 donation to the Obama campaign you might think the guy's entitled to a little juice, but he is. So we can assume that this rumor came from a semi-reliable source.
Mr. Obama is a cold thinking machine. He treats his cabinet members like pets or freshmen students getting into his constitutional law class at the UC. No warmth there, and everything is done on a strict cost-benefit analysis. They say that after a while every president reveals his own psychosis which is called "leadership style." As they say. Write a letter to the Pope.
I read an interesting analysis as to why the conservatives are ten yards from the finish time by the time the liberals get their pants on. The author said that the cons act like a disciplined army, while the libs are a herd of cats. A classic case in point is the Citizens United kerfuffle. Now we all agree that this is possibly the worst Supreme Court decision since Dred Scott. (Don't worry. Another decision of Satan is coming out PDQ on Obamacare.) But I digress.
People on the left may be getting frustrated about the lack of progress on the left on this issue. But my wonk detective hat has revealed serious reasons why action against Citizens United is a no go right now. And boys, and girls -- I'm talking to you lefties. It appears as if the ACLU thinks Citizens United is jake with them. I'll bet you didn't know that, but it's true. Not even that -- but Move On, We The People/Move 2 Amend, and Common Cause all have three different positions on Citizens United. Sheesh!
If we were the con boys, the left would have gathered the suits all together in a smoke free room and have the wonks hash out the policy differences so that the army could take its marching orders. I know that I appear to be a violent radical when I say this, but if the left is going to stay competitive with the right -- we're all due into the shop for a head job. Our minds need a slight midcourse correction, if you get what I mean.
Lastly, I've got to talk about what all this bullshit knowledge inside me head means to me. And this is a message going out to conservatives here. I read a letter to the editor today which I will paraphrase:
What's with this BS coming from Paul Krugman? I, like read his shit and I don't understand it. And then like the libs, they all talk about how wonderful he is, and I say, "WTF????" I guess I must be stupid. LMFAOROG.
I love when conservatives talk all dirty like that to me. OK Brainiac. You know more about economics than a Nobel Prize Winner in economics???
Earth to conservatives. Take your head back to the shop for immediate repair. You have a serious malfunction there. Have you ever heard of reality -- as opposed to $(%&!!?!?! magical thinking? If you succeed in ruling the entire world through your control of the US government -- wouldn't it be better to use hard facts instead of magic ideology? Don't solve policy issues by waving magic bones at us. Bad answer.
