Capitulation And Cowardice

LET IT BE HEARD LOUD AND CLEAR!


Dear America,

We Surrender! Praise be the glory of the Emperor for we shalt lay prostrate in order to better lick his boots.

Sincerely,

The Democrats

Spineless And Slimy

“Show me a good loser and I’ll show you an idiot”
-Leo Durocher
Let’s get this straight and get it straight right now, John F. Kerry is a pandering piece of shit and whatever shifty last minute maneuvering that the centrist charlatan does in order to avoid reneging on his promise to filibuster any potentially radical SCOTUS nominees who would overturn Roe V. Wade from his 2003 words below is all hollow posturing lest he suffer any further political damage after his disastrously fucked 2004 presidential run:

“I am prepared to filibuster, if necessary, any Supreme Court nominee who would turn back the clock on a woman’s right to choose or the constitutional right to privacy, on civil rights and individual liberties and on the laws protecting workers and the environment”

Ok Frenchy, suppose you decided at the last minute to throw a filibuster party and then nobody bothered to show up? Until the above promise was interjected into the blogosphere discourse JFK (John Fucking Kerry) characteristically lurked below the surface much like the rest of the Democrat bottom feeders in the Senate, staying away from anything remotely controversial and remaining in deference to Queen Hillary of Rodham. Once he finally came out in support of a filibuster by making a big show out of his return from Switzerland for more of his trademark self-serving grandstanding on the Senate floor it was virtually assured that there would not be the necessary forty votes for invoking a filibuster despite his pontification and pandering to an increasingly disenfranchised party base. It was only after enough of his spineless and slimy cohorts in the DLC managed senate had already gone on record in support of reactionary judicial activist Sammy Alito including Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia ( whose opposition to the fascist power grab had made him a sort of an elder statesman and hero among wretches but alas his sad cave in proves that you can never trust a yahoo who once dressed up like a transvestite in white sheets and danced lasciviously under the flickering light of burning crosses.) that Frenchy decided to draw a line in the sand.

That was a real ‘risky’ move there Frenchy but it’s the same old shit as your caving in before Ohio had been fully settled was. Don’t I remember a promise that all the votes would be counted during your standard campaign stump speeches? I don’t recall any qualifiers that you only really meant that the all white folk’s votes would be counted because there sure was a lot of disenfranchisment going on per the Conyers Report. Ohio was an abortion, a disaster and an affront to democracy that we way never know the answer for given the propensity of the GOP to stack the deck in every manner possible so as to suppress, harass, deceive or outright steal votes and then have the mainstream media act as accomplices in the aftermath. You were a loser on the morning of November 3rd 2004 and you are still a loser today. But what’s a reach around from one Skull and Bones alumni to another and face it Frenchy, you are a part of the club, you always have been.

John F. Kerry was an utter phony who should have been exposed the minute that he rolled into the Fleet Center at the Democratic National Convention with Bruce Springsteen’s No Surrender blaring in the background as his theme song. He made the invocation of his allegedly heroic Viet Nam war stories the centerpiece of his pathetic campaign and then didn’t bother to pick up arms against Karl Rove’s ‘Swift Boat Veterans’ slander. Why? Maybe there was some truth about Frenchy’s limelight hogging war heroism, and his throwing of his medals over the fence after his return….he always seemed to be in the spotlight, opportunistic in keeping his name recognition up and planning the next step in his career. Perhaps his tales of battlefield heroism on deeper examination may have the same questionable taint borne by those of Bob Dole who fumbled a grenade or Daddy Bush who bailed out of a burning plane while leaving his fellow crewmen to crash into the Pacific or humble beginnings of ‘the War President’ who couldn’t be troubled with even finishing his National Guard duty after being bailed out of Nam as a child of privilege and then finding out that he could fly higher on coke than in any airplane. At least Ike had the balls to walk the walk, and no subsequent president or serious candidate has ever been fit to clean out his foxhole latrine.

Frenchy’s waffling and flip flopping ineffectiveness are all too common symptoms of the pusillanimous sissies that are the inhabitants of Hillary’s Temple of Eunuchs. Only a body ‘led’ by a man the likes of Harry Reid the champion of deal cutting appeasement and a Las Vegas casino lobby whore and populated by the likes of Frenchy, Chappaquiddick Ted, Dickless Durbin, Bend Over Nelson, Barrack ‘chamber token’ Obama, Bush Lovin’ Landrieu, Joe ‘the wandering Jew’ Lieberman and the rest of the ineffective Democratic Leadership Council losers whose ‘punt on second down strategy’ has strangely enough had the effect of being innovative and daring but has also been as disastrous in terms of accompanying unintended consequences as the Spaniards bringing along smallpox to the Incas in attempting to colonize the New World. The worst of the unintended consequences being the empowerment of a cheap, taffy-faced pimp and morally compromised stock swindling, Bush adommodationist demagogue the likes of Bill Frist whose hallmark bellicose manner and dismissive attitude towards invoking the ‘nuclear option’ to kill off the filibuster mocks and spits upon over two centuries of democratic process and tradition. The DLC stooges have no intuitiveness, no gumption, no foresight, no strategy and absolutely no dignity. ‘Hole Card’ Harry is astonishingly clueless to a the tells of a poker bluff for a man hailing from Nevada and even more pathetic a leader for not outright daring Frist to go ahead and pull the trigger, something that the shrewd HCA hustler would not go through with simply because of the mere threat of mutually assured destruction.

Where was Frenchy before it became expedient to ‘take a stand’ other than making noises about a possible run at the White House in 2008 (and what of the queen you say?), don’t these DLC losers ever learn? Selecting John F. Kerry as the best hope for regaining the White House is like some downtrodden NFL team selecting Marty Morningweg as the man whose masterful leadership qualities would guarantee a Super Bowl title. As Casey Stengel once said, “without losers where would the winners be?” and the answer is that as long as the DLC controls the Democratic party the winner will always be a permanent fixture in the Oval Office. When it comes to losers and fools there is no better example than the party whose logo of a jackass is as emblematic to their philosophy as any symbol could possibly be and the Democrats are fully deserving of it.

The Trap Begins To Close

The extremely successful as well as sadly predictable nature of the Bush administration’s three month public relations blitz along with the typical seasonal distractions of Christmas and the NFL playoffs have derailed any serious chance of repelling the imminent coronation of Samuel Alito. Machine Gun Sammy sailed through the first step of his confirmation as the smirking little prick advanced out of the Senate Judiciary Committee by a 10-8 party line vote. His ascension to the SCOTUS bench is virtually guaranteed or as George Tenet would say ‘a slam dunk’.

It will now be pushed to happen as rapidly as possible and likely will be completed just in time for the emperor’s state of the union address on the 31st where it will be trumpeted from the highest mountaintops by the co-opted mainstream media as a veritable triumph of the will for George W. Bush. It will also be proof that he has finally turned things around after a bad fifth year and despite poll ratings still in the low forties is once again on course to ramrod his agenda through with no opposition from either the Democrats or the press and an apathetic, attention deficit afflicted public fixated on the more important things like American Idol and the Super Bowl XL pre game orgy of hype. Once his buttocks are firmly parked upon the bench, Alito will join the reactionary voting bloc of activist justices along with Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and John Roberts to provide the necessary rulings in order to implement the plans of the extreme right, specifically in endowing the presidency with the unchecked powers of a king.

The now likely irreversable systemic transformation would have been impossible without the continuing inability of the so called ‘opposition party’ to mount any sort of sustained offensive against the egregious abuses of the neocons, the theocrats and their puppet emperor and when history is written it will ultimately show the DLC and it’s acolytes will have been as responsible for the fall of the republic as anything that the machinations of the rising fascists have done. The DLC long ago forced the legitimate Democrats out of the party and turned it’s back on the traditional labor base as well as minorities who are only recognized come election time. The Democratic party in it’s current incarnation is a corporate cash addicted monstrosity that bears absolutely no resemblance to what used to be a party of principle and fairness for all Americans, not only the elite and the power hungry.

The DLC has stood idly by while the neo-liberal wrecking crew that rose along with Reagan has laid waste to the middle class, the public schools, the domestic manufacturing base and turned the American Dream into an American Nightmare through the relentless waging of a cruel and nasty class warfare. The DLC’s careful screening process filters out any legitimate reform minded candidates with a progressive view of an America that works for all in favor of cash whores and shills. They are exactly the type of characters that would be capable of the pitiful exhibitions of surrender and appeasement that are continually played out in the Senate and whether it be over the allowing of the nations courts to be packed with with ideologues and zealots, the rolling up of civil liberties or spying on law abiding citizens they are only concerned with covering their own asses. Such shameful behavior would never be tolerated were patriotic, civic minded representatives present in the building instead of the odious collection of slop wallowing prostitutes trolling the street in search of corporate johns.

The Vichy DLC accommodators through their docile deferring to the bullying tactics of the GOP majority on the right as well as their yielding to the pathological penis envy of Hillary Clinton and her relentless pursuit for the 2008 presidential nod will have dubiously accomplished on their watch not only the disembowelment of the constitution but also the facilition of the rise of a police state through their cowardice and acquiescence and this in effect makes them co conspirators. There will be no filibuster of Alito, no forcing of the invocation of the ‘nuclear option’ by these most cowardly of senators, may their names forever be etched in shame and held in infamy. They are losers and ugly ones at that who have in the process of selling out the public have sold their souls and never failed to embody pure yellow cowardice when it came time to take a stand.

The Louisville Courier-Journal puts it best in an editorial:

“There may be depths to which Karl Rove wouldn’t sink, but it’s difficult to imagine what they might be.”

The ongoing exposure of the entire corrupt Republican machine has instilled a serious sense of urgency to go ahead with the implementation of plans, the reentry of a the now once again unfettered Karl Rove to the game shows that the agenda will now be enforced and the scorched earth tactics will become more ruthless with each passing moment. In a speech to the RNC last week Rove not only resorted to the standard demagoguery of the past five years but appeared to be ratcheting it up with statements like the following:

“We face a ruthless enemy and need a commander in chief and a Congress who understand the nature of the threat and the gravity of the moment that America finds itself in”

“Republicans have a post 9/11 worldview while many Democrats have a pre 9/11 worldview”

Then, perhaps sensing the inflammatory nature of these comments Rove then added the following caveat:

“That doesn’t make them unpatriotic…but it does make them wrong, deeply and profoundly and consistently wrong”

Rove couldn’t have put it more bluntly with his ‘post 9/11 worldview’ statement, this is not the America that used to exist and very soon the courts will cease to be an obstacle to the tyranny of the majority. Once the Nazis had seized power they began to rig the system in order to not only punish but to completely eliminate dissenters and opponents. Enabled by the surveillance state to seek out and imprison or murder opposition leaders they soon had set up laws setting a penalty of death for even the distributing of leaflets critical of the regime or simply making jokes about party figures. This was referred to as the making of hateful statements. The judiciary was rendered impotent to the power of the party and unable to stop the either the transfer to the custody of the Gestapo on release of ‘criminals’ or ‘enemies of the state’ or the beatings and torture during interrogation sessions. In a sickly surreal ruling in 1937 an agreement was reached to limit police interrogators to no more than 25 lashings with a standard cane and then only in the presence of a doctor. With a government that has already made no bones over it’s right to torture detainees how far off do you really think it will be until a similar reality exists here?

Conservative columnist Paul Craig Roberts’ most recent columns are very revealing in regard to the grave nature of our shared national plight. He is a rare animal in a country where the party and the cult of personality that is the all protecting ‘strong daddy’ leader has come to represent the guiding vision of what is truly America to so many who place party loyalty over loyalty to their country. In his latest , Roberts examines a provision in the soon to be permanent USA PATRIOT ACT:

A provision in the “Patriot Act” creates a new federal police force with power to violate the Bill of Rights. You might think that this cannot be true as you have not read about it in newspapers or heard it discussed by talking heads on TV.

Go to House Report 109-333 USA PATRIOT IMPROVEMENT AND REAUTHORIZATION ACT OF 2005 and check it out for yourself. Sec. 605 reads:

“There is hereby created and established a permanent police force, to be known as the ’United States Secret Service Uniformed Division’.”

This new federal police force is “subject to the supervision of the Secretary of Homeland Security.”

The new police are empowered to “make arrests without warrant for any offense against the United States committed in their presence, or for any felony cognizable under the laws of the United States if they have reasonable grounds to believe that the person to be arrested has committed or is committing such felony.”

The new police are assigned a variety of jurisdictions, including “an event designated under section 3056(e) of title 18 as a special event of national significance” (SENS).

“A special event of national significance” is neither defined nor does it require the presence of a “protected person” such as the president in order to trigger it. Thus, the administration, and perhaps the police themselves, can place the SENS designation on any event. Once a SENS designation is placed on an event, the new federal police are empowered to keep out and to arrest people at their discretion.

The language conveys enormous discretionary and arbitrary powers. What is “an offense against the United States”? What are “reasonable grounds”?

You can bet that the Alito/Roberts court will rule that it is whatever the executive branch says.

The obvious purpose of the act is to prevent demonstrations at Bush/Cheney events. However, nothing in the language limits the police powers from being used only in this way. Like every law in the US, this law also will be expansively interpreted and abused. It has dire implications for freedom of association and First Amendment rights. We can take for granted that the new federal police will be used to suppress dissent and to break up opposition. The Brownshirts are now arming themselves with a Gestapo.

Many naïve Americans will write to me to explain that this new provision in the reauthorization of the “Patriot Act” is necessary to protect the president and other high officials from terrorists or from harm at the hands of angry demonstrators: “No one else will have anything to fear.” Some will accuse me of being an alarmist, and others will say that it is unpatriotic to doubt the law’s good intentions.

Americans will write such nonsense despite the fact that the president and foreign dignitaries are already provided superb protection by the Secret Service. The naïve will not comprehend that the president cannot be endangered by demonstrators at SENS at which the president is not present. For many Americans, the light refuses to turn on.

In Nazi Germany did no one but Jews have anything to fear from the Gestapo?

By Stalin’s time Lenin and Trotsky had eliminated all members of the “oppressor class,” but that did not stop Stalin from sending millions of “enemies of the people” to the Gulag.

It is extremely difficult to hold even local police forces accountable. Who is going to hold accountable a federal police protected by Homeland Security and the president?


But Roberts is a lone voice, drowned out by the duplicitous babbling of the television and radio punditry the likes of slobbering doofus Chris Matthews and their White House masters.

There is an old saying that goes something like this:

If you put a frog into a pot of boiling water it will immediately jump out, but if you put the same frog in a pot of warm water and very slowly increase the temperature in unnoticeable increments it will sit there until it inevitably cooks to death.

SOUP’S ON !

Return Of The Creature

He’s baaaack! Karl Rove has officially been returned to the forefront once again and is running the White House constitutional destruction machine with a renewed vigor after sliming out of what was once thought to be an imminent indictment. The increasing nastiness of the general tone of the Bush message in a return to the ‘strong daddy’ protector of the quivering leg pissers in this most dishonorable of nations that has supplanted the ‘land of the free and the home of the brave’ with ‘land of the docile, quivering and cowardly’, a wretched collection of woeful, self indulgent, television addicted, ignorant and belligerently nationalist borderline retarded morons who are so lacking of the mettle or true patriotism that our forefathers would puke.

The renewed slash and burn tactics and swift boating of the honorable such as war critic John Murtha, continued harping on the ‘terrorist’ threat and the resultant fear mongering, a renewal of state sponsored religion baiting along with the media’s customary position as lapdog means that Rove has returned and that all future official communications will incrementally be made with increased vindictiveness and mendacity. The mainstream media that briefly showed signs of life is neutered anew now that Kinky Karl and his NSA snooping machine are very likely perusing maniacally for a night of the long knives style purge of any who dared to question why during the national cooling off period after the rotund fiend threw Scooter under Patrick Fitzgerald’s bus to save his own bouncy, dildo loving pasty white lard ass.

And the fact that nothing could be finer than another dead coal miner to the disgraceful hordes of television zombies who leech onto every ridiculous tabloid incident as though it were holy gold nuggets of the hallowed truth raining down from electronic heaven by their corporate pimp purveyors to adoring simpletons who are mocked and held in contempt for their own dyed in the wool, bovine feeble mindedness by any sane society in the modern world.

While ridiculous mine disaster stories, foreign train derailments and a virtual tsunami of ultracapitalist, overly commercial Super Bowl hype flood the media as well as anal sex enthusiast Kobe Bryant’s 81 point explosion dominate the flotsam and jetsam of the surface of the shit that sadly passes for ‘news’ in America the following stories are deemed to be so unimportant as to receive limited or no coverage.

Ford is Cutting 30,000 Jobs

Growing Iran War Drumming Could Bring $100 a bbl Oil

The Iraq Carnage Continues Unabated

Fascism Begins To Spread Northward

Outsourcing Of Torture

And this is only a small sampling of what is being missed by a public of which large parts are still trustful and blissfully unaware at the radical nature of our ongoing national transformation. The religious zealots are also reinvigorated with the return of Rove to lead the crusade towards theocracy and Kingdom Come. On Monday King George made the following comments via telephone from that Midwestern shit hole of dustbowl dumbness known as the state of Kansas, much to the delight of a throng of rubber fetus wavers out in force to cheer the coming of Alito the Avenger and to protest the anniversary of Roe V. Wade. Many likely experienced an embarrassing and sticky little rapture in their pants as the national cleric/unitary executive proclaimed.

“We, of course, seek common ground where possible,” he said. “We’re working to persuade more of our fellow Americans of the rightness of our cause, and this is a cause that appeals to the conscience of our citizens and is rooted in America’s deepest principles — history tells us that with such a cause, we will prevail.”

And of course the nonexistent lie that is the ‘liberal media’ did not even see fit to cover the speech of poor old Al Gore, the man who took the high road after being butt-fucked in Florida by the neo cons, the theocrats and the malicious Bush family still smarting over Daddy’s loss to Bill Clinton in 92. The man whose greatest fault was in trying to avoid the constitutional crises of contesting a stolen election has inadvertently set up the greatest constitutional crises of all, the ‘unitary executive’ aka presidential dictator that with ‘smiling Sammy Alito’s appointment will give the fascist Federalist Society, Opus Dei, the neo cons, the fucking bastard nazi pope and the ever more dangerous New Christian Right a stranglehold on the courts and the power to strip civil liberties, crush dissent and wage unilateral war without regard to potential world destruction as long as the movement is to advance to it’s ultimate goal, whatever the fuck that may be. Rest assured that it will be unlike anything that the world has ever seen before and may we all not perish in the ensuing bloodshed and chaos.

FILIBUSTER ALITO !

Agony And Ecstasy

American Idolatry: The much hyped season premier of the cheesy celebrity wannabe show American Idol debuted this week, a fifth year of the crap that has come to pass for true democracy in the intellectual wasteland of 21st century America. The show has become yet another example of how Rupert Murdoch has built a better mousetrap through his continuing pollution of the national television culture addicted to the cheap and relatively shame free voyeurism of so called reality shows, court t.v., the overly hyped saturation coverage of the latest missing white teenager, child killing pervert or celebrity love tryst of the week. Murdoch has been a crucial ally to the Bush-Cheney junta and his uncanny ability to pander to the lowest common denominators of the troubled national psyche have provided the FOX empire with hit after hit and the necessary cash to purchase increasing amounts of influence through a symbiotic relationship with the democracy destroying machine that is the Republican party, specifically manifested in the nascent dictatorship of George W. Bush, a travesty only made possible by the national embarrassment that American Idol is able to create more voter participation on a weekly basis than most non presidential elections.

As the launching pad for such pseudo celebrities as Clay Aiken, Ruben Studdard and Kelly Clarkson A.I. casts a wide net spanning every possible demographic in order to ensnare drone like audiences of millions, many whose cultlike devotion to the show borders on outright spookiness. This nationally televised version of karaoke is a monster hit and although American Idol is not the first time that a so called ‘talent search’ dishonestly pimping the Jiminy Cricket Syndrome it’s popularity in today’s sociopolitical climate it is indicative of a very deep and terminal sickness that has ravaged our society over the past quarter century, a period that just happened to coincide with the rise of the radical right and the advent of technology that made the cable-satellite-internet explosion possible and allowed legions of political strategists and ideologues to use the new mediums for purposes more sinister and nefarious than the simple generation of revenue through advertising in order to push the envelope through mind control and psychological manipulation but that is a topic for another time.

Just as dogs performing in talent shows don’t have any idea of how truly ridiculous that they are made to appear by their adoring and obsessive owners neither apparently do the majority of contestants on American Idol. Most of them either warble away in tone deaf pitches blissfully unaware of just how pathetic a spectacle that they actually are while millions are transfixed by the imagery on their electronic crack pipes, laughing at the horrid exploitation. It is only when the panel of judges led by former L.A. Laker cheerleader and rumored Magic Johnson fuck toy Paula Abdul (who missed the first episode), Wacko Jacko’s untalented brother Randy (trading on a family name that although drenched in scandal still elicits more adoration than infamy) and the cruel and pompous host Simon Cowell who mockingly hectors and disses the untalented and showers them with a generous dose of the well deserved ridicule that they so are so richly deserving of. When their fifteen seconds of fame is mercifully over they can then slink away to their normal daytime jobs as retail clerks, cashiers, waiters and waitresses, floor moppers, whopper floppers and for those fortunate enough to find a job in an industry that is being offshored by the millions: telemarketers who after blowing their big chance at money and fame must return anew to toil in the hellish, boring obscurity that is reality and not the illusory fantasy of celebrity and stardom that has been drilled into their brains by television and advertising for their entire lives. They are victims and the ‘Crying Game’ is their sorry excuse for an actual life and not the Boy George song that has just been horribly skewered by one of the clueless, talent bereft losers on national television to the amusement of the millions who are even more pathetic by avidly following this trash. Some American Idol contestants actually try to pull a fast one by selecting a song that is so old that a huge part of the audience hasn’t heard the original to get a true idea of just how badly the new version really is by comparison, during Wednesday’s episode some yahoo tried to sing The Hollies ‘The Air That I Breathe’ and only succeeded in sounding like a horridly coked out version of a young Graham Nash on a helium binge.

I could probably castrate a small dog with a rusted bottle cap and the resultant pained wailing of the wounded animal would be far more melodic and ear pleasing that the horrendous, atonal keening that is regularly exhibited by A.I. performers who often conjure up memories of poor pudgy Ned Beatty being bent over a log and forced to squeal like a pig while being sodomized by the dirty toothless hillbillies in the movie Deliverance which strangely enough could be looked upon as a metaphor for what George W. Bush’s red state base has done to the more civilized parts of the country over the past five years. The neo cons have taken eugenics to the next level, Hitler’s Nazis sought to breed a superior Aryan race through genetic purity and used ruthless force and genocide as tools while the neo cons will achieve their goal of a master race through stupefying the masses by using the tools of television, celebrity and God which is a toxic cocktail to unleash on an uninformed and indoctrinated public already rendered docile and potentially violent through a deeply instilled and constantly reinforced mixture of fear, financial stress and xenophobia.

Free Speech Rocks: A new front has just opened up in the culture wars: Satellite Radio! Satellite industry runner up Sirius finally makes up for their naming of a right wing bullshit channel as ‘Sirius Patriot’ by their unleashing their secret weapon: Howard Stern UNCENSORED! If the morality police were outraged at the terrestrial radio version then they will soon be apoplectic over the new and improved Stern show, groups are already mounting petition drives in the usual attempt to bully lawmakers into leveling obscenity charges and their most hated of all shock jocks although the true obscenity is the war on free speech by the potent tag team of the prudes and the fascists who are free to rape the constitution and pillage the civil liberties of Americans in the ugly era of the post 9/11 police state that used to be the good ole US of A.

If Stern slowly dipped his toe into the water of his new domain a bit tentatively but gradually picked up momentum then the first X rated evening drive show host ‘Bubba the Love Sponge’ (a former Tampa Bay area shock jock named Todd Clem who ran for Pinellas County sheriff in 2004 and is more famous for his relationship with local area wrestler Hulk Hogan than anything else) hit the ground running with his nostrils filled with a blood scent and zeroing in on the jugular by attacking terrestrial radio goliath Clear Channel, the FCC, A.I.’s Ryan Seacrest and the overly sensitive moron minority that had chased him off of local radio and into satellite orbit. The Sponge was absolutely on fucking fire with an extremely wild and varied discourse over the first few days of his broadcast by constantly invoking graphic and raw adult content that was astonishing in its explicitness The dude rocked with a boldness and vigor that not even Charon himself could come close to, after all, I pulled a vicious parody picture of G.W.B. being butt-fucked by U.B.M. yesterday despite my commitment to be as balls nasty as humanly possibly only out of the fear that it would violate the blogger.com rules possibly resulting in a complaint by one of the little Bush sycophant douchebags who do such things so in a rare bit of restraint, albeit logical restraint I posted a less inflammatory picture (although it is my promise that the normal vicious rhetoric will continue unabated) . There was nothing even resembling that in the big boy’s show on Sirius. A studio appearance by former Playboy/Penthouse pet Victoria ‘Dr. Z’ Zdrok during which the topics ranged from golden showers, the taste and composition of female ejaculate, the pigmentation of her bunghole as well as the obligatory simulated cunnilingus during which the good doctor cooed in a Ukranian accent “leeek my pooosay Bubba”. Other segments featured explicit, expletive drenched soliloquies on masturbation, taking a dildo up the ass if it meant being able to mount and bang Jessica Schimmel from the rear, ‘tossing salad’, blowjobs and a list of sexual practices too numerous to list here in the amount of time that I have, just go visit the website if you are curious.

Stern upped the ante with a now bolder version of his standard raunchy schtick including a reference to a guy who ‘dumped a load on his chest’ at one time and for the first week featured a guest appearance by Star Trek’s Mr. Sulu, George Takei who last year announced that he was gay, a fact that a good percentage of the show’s humor at any given time was targeted at. Stern did a segue into a story about how his father used to retreat after dinner to his upstairs bathroom in order to take a huge dump and jerk off to his huge cache of porn (which the younger Stern also enjoyed on a regular basis) while polluting the air of the entire room with a fecal stench, Stern also stated that his dad would often bookmark the best porn with pieces of toilet tissue. Stern also poked fun at the holocaust by proclaiming that many Jewish men used it as a perfect opportunity to leave their families for good and said that he himself may have been named after Hitler. Stern is crazy like a fox and has parlayed his fame into a genre shattering extremely lucrative deal that will not only make him rich beyond his wildest dreams but may eventually even be a dagger that is driven into the neck of that most foul of mediums that is corporate radio, Clear Channel executives must be shitting in their pants today as are the foul repression obsessed political apparatchiks whose agenda they so serve in their efforts to homogenize, dumb down and suppress dissent in order to promote standardized cheap and lousy product.

It may be crude, rapacious and scatological but the unbelievably explicit talk is exhilarating to hear to the point of being a gigantic turn on and hearing such language flowing from my car speakers was outright ecstasy nearly along the lines of the incredible feeling of the protagonist of Jim Carroll’s classic ‘The Basketball Diaries’ when he climbs up onto the roof of his apartment one night in order to get naked and pleasure himself under the beauty of the stars in the evening sky. Unfettered and unregulated free speech has personally taken on something of an aphrodisiac quality given my renewed appreciation for the first amendment as well as its fragility and with not being an exhibitionist it was easy to repress any sudden urges to jump up on my car hood while at a stoplight during rush hour traffic in order to run a batch but the spirit was there. I have never been a devotee of either Howard Stern or Bubba the Love Sponge and don’t typically get jazzed up over nasty sex talk but damn it, I was impressed by the utterly vile content of their initial shows and the glimmer of hope of the potential of one day having freedom from the Gestapo tactics of Bush’s FCC Nazis and their activist religious morality enforcers. It was wonderful and bordering on outright orgasmic to hear the reemergence of free speech from the dankest of dungeons into which it has been locked during these most dark and repressive years of the reign of King George and his zealots it was awesome.

Offended? FUCK YOU! Here is a hale and hearty welcome back for the long standing concept of freedom of speech, an American staple before the sick ascension of King George and the true evil that lurks behind the throne that is Dick Cheney. Vice is the man whose insistence on the blocking of satellite photos of his new waterfront residence as well as the restriction of any unauthorized water-borne craft would tickle the fancy of many so called conspiracy theorists who may or may not believe that Dirty Dick himself was the driving force behind 9-11 and the PNAC agenda and who just may come to the conclusion that the secrecy and security is intended to provide cover for a smuggled WMD that will eventually be detonated at an undisclosed location. Holy Jack Fucking Bauer, is it possible that a staged terrorist attack in order to ensure that totalitarianism will become the law of the land and that Stern, Clem, Me and You will soon become members of the ‘disappeared’ in the resultant totalitarian fascist police state possibly be facliltated by a bomb delivered to Dickie’s new backyard dock during a neocon BBQ? It may sound paranoid to most but does anyone really think that Dick Cheney, the most evil and loathsome cocksucker on the face of the planet would be totally incapable of such a devious and nefarious plan?

Right wing talk has ruled the airwaves for far too long and now here come the usurpers, the rebels with a long and desperately needed shot of audacity as well as a giant electronic middle finger extended to an all too powerful movement of sexually repressed control freaks determined to dictate your morality to you even if they must use the courts to shove it down your throats. Right wing radio has just been given a body blow, it is staggering and could never top Sirius for it’s reality. I mean could you even begin to draw a mental picture of the imminently conflicted, thrice divorced, drug addicted bigot Rush Limbaugh, the guru and pied piper to legions of ignorant rural rats kicking back in his EIB studio, popping tabs of ‘hillbilly heroin’ chasing it with $1,000 a bottle French wine and then inserting the empty into his rectum like a modern asexual version of Fatty Arbuckle? Talent on loan from God? I think Not! More like bullshit on loan from Satan/Rove. Right wing talk radio will forever remain as the fraudulent theatre of the absurd that it truly is while the cutting edge won’t be confined to drunken embittered farmers who have been swindled out of their land and rightful bounty on their crops by huge agribusiness entities, gun totin’ racist red state morons in peckerwood country and the uptight, sexually repressed twits of the religious right.

Sex is what ultimately sells better than any other commodity in the free market and the pure thrill of the rapture of orgasm will trump the fear filled message of the demagogues who have seized the temple and promise the deliverance of a fiery Armageddon as their rapture, preaching hellfire and damnation to all but the chosen. It is ironic that these charlatans will be the ones who are left behind as Americans flock to a base instinct even more powerful than that of fear, the desire for RAW SEX!

Osama Bin Laden’s latest communiqué with the hated Americans couldn’t have come at a better time, the season premier of the paramilitary torture promoting ‘24’ still fresh in the minds of anybody who was inundated with roughly one hundred or so promos during the FOX coverage of the past weekend’s NFL playoff games and just in time for a huge coordinated push by the fascist thugs of the Bush administration and the Cheney led neo cons to finally overthrow that “God Damned piece of paper”, the U. S. Constitution with such minimal opposition from the Senate Democrats that their efforts make the ‘cheese eating surrender monkeys’ that are the WW II era Frenchies look like the conquering forces of Alexander the Great by comparison.

It also conveniently knocks all of the mounting bad news about the increasing smelly mess that is a feces smeared GOP elephant directly out of the headlines and out of the gnat like attention spans of the dwindling percentage of American idiots who even bother to waste their precious time reading about matters that truly affect their lives instead of coming home from their shitty jobs, turning on the television, consuming the electronic garbage and propaganda and then returning to their shitty jobs the next morning to discuss the previous night’s television trash with their equally moronic co workers.

Additionally, the Bin Laden tape (of course it was nearly immediately authenticated by the political hacks in Porter Goss’ CIA, a monstrous agency of enormous ill repute even before the appointment of the Bush administration lackey as well as the ruthlessly effective enforcement arm of the Gods of the free market who perform the wet work for Wall Street) will lead the way for the relentless barrage of aggressive agitprop that is designed to suppress an already spineless opposition into rolling over and taking it up the ass one more time for old glory in order to just do their patriotic duty by shutting the fuck up, forgetting about the illegal spying (by the way, the government just made a grab for over a million ip addresses in a suit filed against search engine Google under the transparent and dubious guise of a porn crackdown) and abuses of power by Bush and his Nazi henchmen and keep on shopping….oh, by the way, keep a watchful eye on those liberals as well, they may just be offering aid and comfort to the enemy. For anyone who has wondered where Kinky Karl Rove had gone wonder no more, he is back and back with a vengeance.

There are several big questions that beg answers:

If a domestic terror attack is being planned and imminent will it appropriately occur on February 27th? How apropos would it be to have a spectacular event on the 69th anniversary of the Reichstag fire and then Bush could assume the full dictatorial powers that were so important to his granddaddy’s good ole buddy and favored trading partner Onka Dolph himself.

Will a domestic attack prove that Bush and his partisan hacks just may have totally fucked up when considering the potential political damage that a large amount of American casualties at Tora Bora where Osama was holed up in November 2001 may have done to the hallowed Republican/conservative agenda? Perhaps this was one time that the free market panacea of outsourcing was not exactly the greatest idea…especially when the poorly paid Afghan help were then easily bribed in a manner that would even make Jack Abramoff proud by the Saudi terrorist czar to let him slither through the lines into Al Quaeda friendly Pakistan. A thought that immediately comes to mind is that maybe Osama is of more use to the administration alive for propaganda reasons than most would ever be willing to contemplate, after all he was a former CIA asset and for all intents and purposes may still be one.

Will an attack re-launch the once mighty product that was ‘the war president’, an 800 pound gorilla that terrified critics into submission in a manner unseen since Walmart or will it demonstrate once and for all to a credulous public who have already been repeatedly buggered by charlatans playing with house money for five mother fucking years that the ‘man in charge’ is a grossly inept, mentally troubled fuck up whose ridiculous insistence that God is his imaginary playmate is the equivalent of a live grenade rolling around in a foxhole or a loose cannon careening around on deck?

Will an attack all be blamed on the Clintons and the liberals and the Democrats and the war critics and the heathens and the secular humanists? There is no need to spend much time on this one, we already know the answer.

This is a well planned out, much needed and over utilized ploy to once again invoke the fear issue to keep the leg pissing lemmings in line as the neo con drumbeat to launch a coordinated attack on Iran as the next phase in the world domination tour gets nearer by the day. The propaganda mill has been churning out anti-Iranian chaff for months on end and the echo chamber of the Krauthaummers and Kristols of the world only blow on their syndicated trumpets in order to further rouse the rabble or those sophisticated enough to have reading skills above the fourth grade level, for the rest there is always FOX and Rush.

The implications are tremendous if the American suckers again strike at the bait, any sort of attack on Iran would be catastrophic in terms of consequences. The Iranian government is already threatening to withhold their precious ebony gold from the market by cutting off oil exports which could drive the price of our national black crack addiction to over $100 a barrel and this would result in economic devastation in and of itself. When you figure in a huge rise in oil prices along with the rapidly hissing of the U.S. housing bubble and the accompanying cheap refinancing credit that allowed consumers to continue to purchase imported products at the expense of our domestic manufacturing base jobs as well as the coming stock market crisis of which recent turmoil on the Japanese market is only a harbinger of potential doom given the intricately constructed ponzi scheme that are the world markets we could be looking down the barrel of Armageddon itself. Or at least the end of life as we currently know it.

In layman’s terms, the shit may be about to hit the fan

We may be about to reap the whirlwind of the bastard Bush administration whose arrogant refusal to adhere to the laws of the land is as tantamount to treason as their failure to acknowledge a myriad of social and environmental global issues is a big John Wayne style FUCK YOU to the rest of the civilized world. If so, and the turd hits the whirring blades then we are all in this mess together thanks to the brainless flockers who worship George W. Bush as though he were the earthly embodiment God himself. We are all on the bus together and while so many millions purchased their tickets under the impression that the final destination was ‘The Rapture’ the bus is only headed toward the edge of a cliff….and the driver has the pedal to the metal.

God Is Not A Football Fan

“….I really felt the Lord’s hand was on this team”

– Tony Dungy

Down go both Tony Dungy of the Indianapolis Colts and Joe Gibbs of the Washington Redskins, two of the most openly pious head coaches in the NFL since Tom Landry aka ‘God’s Coach’ himself stalked the sidelines. The twosome were rudely knocked out of the NFL playoffs over the weekend despite many inferences that their teams were somehow anointed by God to win the Super Bowl. It would have to been interesting to see just who the almighty would have picked had both teams and their blessed coaches advanced to Detroit for Super Bowl XL or would he have had the game just go on in an eternal tie so as to not show preference for his favored sons, pissing off secular fans everywhere and undoubtably having corporate advertisers singing Glory, Glory Hallelujah. Dungy’s faith is mentioned in nearly every article and interview and ‘Jesus’ Gibbs is so holier than thou that he has not only appeared as a top speaker at national prayer breakfasts attended by the holy roller in chief G.W. Bush but he actually approved his NASCAR team to feature a car hood logo promoting Mel Gibson’s sadistic, gory Jew bashing piece of B Movie cinematic shit The Passion of the Christ.

With the chosen ones now left with months of free time on their hands to petition the lord in prayer can we now all get over the tired and obscene idea that God actually gives a flying fuck about who wins a football game? I mean doesn’t God have better things to do with his time and omnipotence, infinite power and wisdom than to waste time squandering it over such silly and meaningless pursuits? You would think that the near continual invocation of his name by self righteous jackasses the likes of Mark Brunell, Kurt Warner, Reggie White and Jon Kitna among too many others to name would place the almighty upon his great throne every Sunday and Monday night along with the odd Saturday vigorously punching the buttons on a huge universal remote and an eternal subscription to the NFL Sunday Ticket in order to keep tabs on his personal favorites. The ever increasing presence of religion in popular culture with an onslaught of Hollywood entertainment including the most recent franchise, C.S. Lewis’ The Chronicles of Narnia (promoted by evengelical megachurches throughouth the land), the best selling pulp trash novels of the Left Behind series as well as the ongoing invocation of religion in advertising and product pimping is as demeaning to the true message of Jesus Christ as any simple blasphemy. The use of religion as a promotional tool shows the deeply disturbing cultural sickness by it’s reduction to a moneymaking vehicle as well as dangerous by continuing to reinforce the image of the U.S. as a ‘Christian Nation’ that threatens our very system of government with being overrun by the true believers seeking to implement theocracy. The theocratic movement despite it’s necessity of using simplistic explanations to complex issues as an allure to converts is in and of itself a huge paradox when it utilizes the most potent of all technologies that is television to further indoctrinate the masses. But what would religion in post 9/11 America be without it’s hypocrisy and myriad contradictions.

Now about that overturned interception by the Steelers’ Troy Polamalu which is one of the worst officiating decisions that I have ever seen in nearly forty years of football watching, to call it curious would be an understatement. Rest assured that it wasn’t the hand of God that intervened on several occasions during this weekend’s AFC divisional playoffs (the pallor of controversy for some reason did not seen to extend to the NFC) with the incredible overturn of the potentially game clinching Pittsburgh interception as well as the refs not throwing a flag on an earlier blatant pass interference call that should have gone against the Colts as well as the phantom interference call on the notorious Colt killer Patriots that gave the Denver Broncos a first and goal on the one during Saturday night’s game. God had nothing to do with it although the fingerprints of Wall Street were everywhere, it seemed like serendipity that so many missed and plain outright bad calls were all made on the same weekend, was it in order to ensure that a Colts appearance in Detroit would become a reality? Imagine the ratings pull and phenomenal tie ins, crossovers and TV movie potential were an evangelical black head coach who has just tragically lost his eldest son to a pre-Christmas suicide were to overcome adversity in order to win the ultimate game leading a team quarterbacked by the eldest son in an NFL dynasty….there you go again, conspiracy theorist…moi?

It would be the greatest fucking human interest/football story since another evangelical Christian Kurt Warner led the NFL’s formerly woeful St. Louis Rams and their miracle high powered arenaball offense to the title a scant year or so after he was stocking cans of cream corn and green beans in a grocery store. Ironically Tony Dungy was the opposing coach when another bogus overturn of a legitimate call in the closing minutes allowed the Ram defense to hold and go on to eke out an 11-6 win advancing to Atlanta to play the Tennessee Titans instead of a network nightmare matchup of Titans-Bucs that would have been so boring that viewers were at the risk of falling asleep or simply flipping the channel to something more exciting than the inevitable low scoring defensive struggle.

I lost a lot of respect for the NFL over the weekend and not only over the horribly botched interception reversal or the equally terrible phantom pass interference in Denver nor the missed mugging in Indy, nor the blown clusterfuck offsides call late in the fourth quarter that resembled a drunken Chinese fire drill, nor any of the other pieces of mounting evidence that pointed to a suspicion that it sure as hell seemed like somebody somewhere wanted the Colts to advamce and was stacking of the deck against the Pats and Steelers in order to ensure that it would happen. It was just the gross tastelessness of the whole goddamned thing and the taint of the evil influence of too much money that is so corrosive to our social fabric today in free market obsessed America

I hate to be overly conspiratorial in regards to the NFL’s insatiable hunger for merchandising and marketing tie in dollars but when a notorious pitchman the likes of former fatso Jared Fogel of the Subway sandwich fast food empire is featured on the CBS postgame show instead of the straight analysis that fans have become used to something is seriously wrong. The NFL has officially jumped the shark and is now as much a laughingstock as the NBA and WWF in my opinion. Outrage over the interception reversal was rampant on Monday, and reached the point where the NFL itself even had to admit that it was a ‘bad call’ and blamed it on an error in judgement by referee Pete Morelli. The NFL can throw Morelli under the bus but judging from the amount of comments that I heard and read today the damage may already have been done with the integrity of the league being questioned. Hey, I have nothing wrong with entertainment but if the outcomes are going to be rigged to ensure profitability then at least have the decency to call it entertainment and don’t foist it off as an actual sporting contest. Just one thing to think about on the NFL from now on when spending those big bucks on official team clothing that may or may not have been a product of sweatshop labor, ask yourself if you would pay top dollar for shirts with logos for Walmart, Burger King, Haliburton, McDonalds, Pepsi or any other giant corporation to wear around as free advertising for their products. At this rate it’s only a matter of fucking time until the corporations start naming the teams themselves instead of the stadiums that the public is screwed into financing.

At least for that mutinous loser Peyton Manning the ending was appropriate, now he can blame his offensive line and idiot kicker for blowing the game as is his style. Poor little Archie, it’s always everyone’s fault but his…how absolutely Dan Marino like and he can go down as a similar loser more interested in personal stats and glory than a title. Coach Peyton is now 3-6 in the playoffs after totally abandoning the run and a red hot Edgerrin James and when combined with the fact that he never could close the deal during his college career at the University of Tennessee he is going to wear the mantle of ‘choker’ until he actually manages to win a came in crunch time and the next one will be the first. Like Marino before him he will pile up record numbers, Hall of Fame numbers but always be remembered as the guy who couldn’t win the big one. Listening to his coach instead of embarrassing a man coming off of the tragic loss of his son to a suicide four days prior to Christmas on national television and creating a huge future rift in the locker room would help but when it comes down right down to the bottom line it is always about Peyton. With all of the tutelage that he received from his father apparently he missed the one most valuable lesson on the concept that there is no I in team. The Colts all made a big show of turning out for James Dungy’s funeral in Tampa in a show of support and togetherness and Peyton was the leader, but this was before he found it necessary to shank Dungy in the back during Sunday’s loss. Now Manning and the rest can always blame their failures on the distraction from the tragic events, the crutch is already there and if all else fails the idiot kicker can take the fall. Peyton Marino’s waving off of the punt team was as dismissive of his coach as it was disrespectful and will forever cement his image as the spoiled, selfish ass that he is.

Shed no tears for Dungy’s aborted quest for Super Bowl glory, in actuality he should already have at least one ring and most likely two from his tenure in Tampa Bay where his defense set standards for dominance. The first time out he was robbed by that aforementioned other bogus replay that overturned an obvious catch by WR Bert Emanuel that would have brought the Bucs dangerously close to ending the great storyline of the Kurt Warner led Rams and his butt ugly wife who viewers had to watch ad nauseum wearing a hideous, feathered blue dress that looked like it was dug out of a dumpster behind an East St. Louis Salvation Army store. The second botched title season died at the hand of Dungy himself whose decision to make a political statement by anointing the extremely mediocre Shaun ‘Burger’ King as his starting quarterback and as a result laid waste to what could have been a dream season with Super Bowl XXXV being in Tampa in what would have been essentially a home game for the Bucs. King predictably (to everyone with the exception of Tony D.) underachieved spectacularly by failing to produce a much needed first round bye and home field advantage and Tampa Bay was eventually routed in the wild card game by the Eagles in the dank Philly shit pit known as the Vet. The team quit on Dungy the next year and his ticket was punched to Indy when he was fired by the Bucs. Incidentally his replacement won the Super Bowl once he left and with King relegated to the scout team where he belonged.

It is however a damned shame when a man who despite his overt piety is as decent a human as Tony Dungy who to his credit is perhaps the most respected man in the NFL (other than by Peyton Manning) is latched onto by religious right and corporate bloodsuckers whose tendency to flock in parasitic manner like scabies to a host is as exploitative as it is stomach turning. Despite the weekend losses for Gibbs and Dungy there will still be those who insist that God is somehow invested in the outcome on their teams behalf, here is something for those people to ponder:

Maybe it actually was God who caused the idiot kicker Vanderjagt’s field goal attempt to miss, maybe he was sending a message that he really couldn’t give a goddamn about who wins a stupid goddamned football game.

A True American Hero

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter”
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

A true American hero from a day before such a term became cheapened by it’s overuse.
Men such as he are in short supply in these most terrible of times.

The Coming Rollover


What we’ve worked on for 30 years, to mobilize people of faith and value in this country, what we’ve done through these years is coming to culmination right now”
– Jerry Falwell

“It is a perplexing and unpleasant truth that when men already have “something worth fighting for, they do not feel like fighting.”
-Eric Hoffer
The Samuel Alito hearings represented the Super Bowl for the radical zealots of the religious right and gives them a chance to once and for all seize their holy grail by ensuring that an anti constitutional ally hellbent on casting the key vote in the imminent overturn of Roe v. Wade be granted knighthood in the holy crusade of sixties backlash and the global spreading of the gospel through military force. As a radical judicial activist Alito will also use the federal bench to further bestow upon the presidency the kinglike powers that are so necessary to rid a ‘Christian Nation’ of the heathens and heretics seeking to remove God from the public square.

Alito, long known as ‘Scalito’or ‘Little Scalia’ is a nerdy looking little man in turtleshell spectacles that hide the cold and calculating eyes of a mob accountant with a ruthless agenda and an icy cold heart. He is a soldier in the army of God and represents the fruition of a decades long ambition of the radical movement to facilitate his ascension to the federal bench as the crucial swing vote that would turn the president into a dictatorial ruler with no accountability to either of the once co-equal branches before ‘checks and balances’ became just another meaningless cliché. The presidency will soon have providence to rule by decree, held back by no man or institution and subject only to whatever voices happen to whisper into his head on any given day with the assumption that they are from God himself and not the rantings of an abnormal and malignantly megalomaniac brain gone terribly awry, swayed only by the Machiavellian manipulations of Karl Rove, a longtime made man and insane devotee to the advancement of the movement whispering sweet nothings into his ear.

A recent Wall Street Journal Report divulged the following sordid details:

WASHINGTON — Insisting that God “certainly needs to be involved” in the Supreme Court confirmation process, three Christian ministers today blessed the doors of the hearing room where Senate Judiciary Committee members will begin considering the nomination of Judge Samuel Alito on Monday.
Capitol Hill police barred them from entering the room to continue what they called a consecration service. But in a bit of one-upsmanship, the three announced that they had let themselves in a day earlier, touching holy oil to the seats where Judge Alito, the senators, witnesses, Senate staffers and the press will sit, and praying for each of the 13 committee members by name. “We did adequately apply oil to all the seats,” said the Rev. Rob Schenck, who identified himself as an evangelical Christian and as president of the National Clergy Council in Washington.
Reverend Schenck called the consecration service the kick-off in a series of prayer meetings that will continue throughout the confirmation hearing.
Isn’t there something in the bible regarding the condemnation of the spilling of a man’s ‘precious seed’ in reference to such masturbation? Then again, what the fuck does it really matter to religious fanatics who reinterpret the ‘holy book’ on a near daily basis to justify their mad lust for power and the ability to ultimately subjugate their fellow man? Tell it to the three stooges wanking over Scalito’s chair, would they return to the scene after the hearing to sniff the seat? As the hearings began whatever mojo that may have been sprinkled around appeared to be working.
Wednesday’s unbelievable stagecraft of having Martha Ann Alito burst into tears and hurriedly exit the room was a perfectly executed trick play that had been set up by the same propagandists that brought you the swift boat attacks on John Kerry during the 2004 election. Creative Response Concepts, a Virginia based PR firm was Johnny on the spot in the follow up and the weeping Mrs. Alito was featured on all of the retardo-vision morning faux news shows like the Today Show shillness of “DEMOCRATS GONE TOO FAR?” The crying game was milked throughout the conservative media as well as used as an example of the cruelty of the ‘God Hating Liberals’ in tearing down this man of integrity in front of his family. Great soap opera but total Rove horse shit once again. The country will rue that day that that little round bastard was able to dodge the indictment that snared Scooter Libby to unleash his unscrupulous tactics in order to advance the fascist agenda. You only get one shot at these bastards and you have to make it count. Hillary’s Temple Eunuchs will soon be crying crocodile tears over the most ridiculously inept performance since the prosecution in the O.J. Simpson trial, an effort that was such an utterly abysmal clusterfuck that you have to wonder if many were willing participants in the latest episode of fakery that illustrates to all but the most idiotic of naïve simpletons that American democracy has been reduced to a complete sham.
The waterworks were unleashed to the accompanying sound of whirring and clicking cameras when Republican Senator Lindsey Graham invoked the trigger phrase “closet racist” and the grifters were set into motion. Graham, a soft spoken, very effeminate sounding South Carolinian who if he were a Democrat would be accused by right wing hate bloggers (who when taking a rare break from their prowling of cyberspace jackoff chat rooms go into a pathological type of attack mode) of being a ‘cocksucking faggot’ whose only greater pleasure in life other than having a cock in a his mouth would be in having two cocks simultaneously jammed up his puckered asshole in the typical vitriolic slander that passes for discourse among the latent homosexual knuckle draggers on the right.
The reptillian longtime GOP Senator Orrin Hatch of the U.S. capital of wife swapping and church sponsored serial fucking that is the state of Utah chimed in on cue with:

“She’s sick and tired of the mistreatment of her husband”

Senator Hatch has long been a festering wart on the ass of frontier America which is befitting for such an appropriate representative of that shithole of iniquity and the whacked out perverts who continually elect him to office to ensure that their sanctioned orgies can continue unimpeded. The recent controversy over the gay ranchhand film Brokeback Mountain also ensures that their racism and bigotry will be looked upon within the borders of that zealot ridden wasteland as a being badge of honor instead of the affront to the concept of a supposedly advanced society that they truly are. It would be wishful thinking to believe that anything short of death will remove this tumor from the U.S. body politic given his residence amongst the dirty bearded, child fucking misanthropes that are a predominant part of his constituency.
Nobody even gives a rat’s ass! Especially the Democrats whose final capitulation would be the most disastrous of all for the future of the republic. Judas Iscariot asked for forty pieces of silver for his act of betrayal but we may never know for certain what the price for the bastards of the DLC was. You can rest assured that the check was cashed against the freedom that used to be a birthright for all citizens of America in addition to the ambassador of goodwill that the United States used to represent to the world, and it has empowered a renegade monster king of an imperial presidency. May God help us all when the idiotic puppet George W. Bush is out of the way because we will all rue the day that this abandonment of the very principles of our once great nation cleared the path for the one who will come in the future to bring fruition to the plans of the theocrats and their co-conspirators and he won’t be a mentally deficient half-wit.
Alito’s confirmation will mean that the noose of fascism will be cinched all that much tighter around our necks and may that fish eating little Federalist Society fuck not forget proper protocol and fail to kiss the ass of Emperor Bush on the way to kissing Herr Ratzinger’s ring, der pontiff will be very pleased that yet another blow has been struck against the Enlightenment.
In terms of the great experiment of freedom and democracy we lost, and the tragedy is that we never even had a dog in the fight or at least one that was loyal and not deserving of being taken out back and shot in the fucking head for shitting on the living room carpet one too many times. While the questioning of Alito at times seemed withering it was all window dressing and playacting, a typical dog and pony show from an opposition party in a rigged tame that has sold it’s soul. The main difference these days between a Democratic party senator and a cheap whore is that the whore can take a bath at the end of a day’s work to wash away the filth and residue of sin while it permeates to the very compromised souls of the Judas gang that is the so called ‘opposition’ party.
The DLC Democrats will ultimately cave in on Alito, that much is as certain as the sun coming up in the morning and the inevitability of death and taxes although the second is subject to whether or not one is rich enough to buy a seat at the banquet table for the filthy rich aristocracy who really call the shots in this country. There will be no filibuster, no fight and yet another craven capitulation and slinking off into the corner by the usual cringing suspects, career punks who long ago realized that being continually and violently ass fucked by the militant establishment majority was not only an easier way of doing their time by not having to fight but could actually be lucrative as well, only in Washington the currency is in dollars instead of cigarettes but the overall concept is the same. In the end run most not only came to accept it but to even like it as well.
As much as it may sting it is time to come to the logical conclusion that any Democrat who is entwined within the arms of the treasonous, corrupt octopus that is the Democratic Leadership Council is a worse enemy to the continued future of the country than the reactionaries on the right (who at least are true believers in their cause and crusade for despotism) and it is imperative that every last one of the bastards be soundly defeated in November by every loyal American casting a vote for either the Libertarian or Green party or for that matter Donald Fucking Duck as a write in candidate even if it gives the Republicans an even tighter stranglehold on congress because at this point what in the fuck would it really matter? The GOP gets their way every time with these nauseating, cowardly, feckless accommodating weasels so why not just get rid of them all together and let the GOP and DLC both implode. That would with any luck lead to a national outrage and the rise of a progressive movement that would empower representatives who are for the people rather than militant theocrats and wealthy greedmongers…with any luck it would allow for the rise of a legitimate third party as well. As the infamous Viet Nam statement goes “we had to destroy the village in order to save it” and there should be no illusions as to what the fate of democracy will be if the DLC is allowed to continue to dictate party policy.

If George W. Bush and his thugs have made a mockery and a circus out of everything that this country has ever stood for and pimped out government in the process then the Democrats are the clowns who all need to pile into their little fucking clownmobile and get the fuck out of Dodge.

We need a new sheriff in town as badly as Washington itself needs to be given a gigantic enema.
