I've Fucking Had It

Between food shopping, laundry, neverending auto maintenance, job searching and setting up and contributing to my dedicated book blog, Kindle in the Wind, you may've noticed I've had little time, energy or inclination to weigh in much on the top trending news topics over the past week. Chiefest among these news items designed to distract us from the real issues such as global warming, gun control and the imminent debt ceiling showdown is where Petraeus's prick has been.

I'm not qualified to pontificate on that particular news item, which includes threatening emails from one paramour to another presumed one, shirtless FBI agents, the Bureau knowing about this since last summer and Glenn Beck trying to claim that President Obama personally inserted the four star flagpole into Paula Broadwell's snatch for partisan gain. This is simply because I have not delved into this particular deepening rabbit hole beyond what the NY Times says in their cover story blurbs in my inbox and jokes on Twitter. It's been ascertained that national security was not in danger and the former CIA Director's peccadillos is, like the Clinton/Monica thingie, strictly a family affair.

However, in the fag ends of spare time I've had of late, I couldn't help but notice the Republican Party and their no-neck surrogates in Deliveranceville have insisted on covering themselves with more glory since the election and alienating more voters and potential voters and I've fucking had it with them. I do not feel the need to be civil with them, so fuck them and their "another tolerant liberal" bullshit on Twitter the moment I counterpunch.

Let's start with Allen fucking West, that Frankenstein-headed piece of shit in Florida's 18th district. West lost, plain and simple but the $8,000,000 man (more was spent on his campaign than any other House candidate except for Boehner and Bachmann) apparently has well-placed friends. It's now coming out that 799 votes went missing (667 of them, natch, belonging to Murphy) and Florida election officials are claiming that well over 2000 votes, most of them Murphy votes, were supposedly counted twice, meaning Murphy's lead is evaporating by the day. Meanwhile, a week after the election, Allen West has continued putting out anti-Murphy attack ads on his official YouTube channel. West has now turned himself into Will Ferrell SNL character Mack North who continued putting out attack ads on his opponent even after the election. The difference, of course, is that Ferrell's character actually won.

Sadly, this is merely typical of the same old, democracy-loathing right wing nut jobs to which we've been subjected this month. He Who Shall Not Be Named himself recently blew a chance to escape one of the worst and most humiliating landslides ever and to come off looking like a gracious loser. Instead, after an admirable self portrait of grace and deportment, he then painted over it a masterpiece of wingnuttery with his own feces by claiming Obama won because of all the gifts he'd lavished on the very same people who loathe him the most: Women, youth and minorities (Here are some hashtags to use on Twitter: #phantomphones #cannedgoods, etc).

Please go away. Losing presidential candidates should be neither seen nor heard. Even the GOP wants you to shut the fuck up and avoids you like the political fungus you are.

Then there are the rank and vile right wing bloggers and Twitter twits who haven't been completely driven back into the shadows since election night and are calling for the President to be assassinated and are screaming about faux county voter turnouts larger than the electorate.

Then there are the pollsters such as these idiots who claimed Scott Brown was beating Elizabeth Warren by a point the day before election day only to get trounced by 8 points. These are largely the same people who, in the interests of manufacturing a neck-and-neck horse race for the corporate MSM, kept insisting up until two hours and 16 minutes before the polls closed the Romney/Obama race was too close to call.

This, as we all now know, is the actual neck-and-neck final result. Not surprisingly, they're remaining mum about their Dick Morris-class prognosticating, as if a margin of error of 30-40% is a legitimate occupational hazard.

Then there was Rush Limbaugh who went to bed on Election Night on fine French linen in his multi-million dollar Florida mansion thinking "we'd lost the country." This further led Rushbo to sarcastically whine on his bile delivery system radio show that the GOP is blaming him for Romney losing the election. Obviously, it hasn't occurred to these human ostriches that Romney lost the election because he's simply unelectable and won his only race in 2002 because he was running against little more than token opposition from the Democrats. The man is about as popular as a mutant yeast infection at Lilith Fair, plain and simple.

It's people such as this that make my brain hurt and make me wonder for the umpteenth time if I was wise to get into this thankless mug's game called political blogging. It ought to be apparent to all who've done this for more than a year that simply having the facts on your side and being passionate and eloquent in your arguments never puts a dent in the impenetrable stupidity of right wingers who've been conditioned to believe that the liberalism that gave them Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, unions, safer work environments, bridges, highways, air, water and pharmaceuticals, represents everything that is wrong with their lives.
