Apocapolitics Now

I remember when I saw the movie, "Omega Man"*--back in 1971--thinking that the crazed, photophobic followers of "John Matthias" were, fortunately, nothing but a SciFi author's nightmare of post-apocalyptic mankind.

Then, along came the SKKKrotalMerKKKinPatriotiKKK Party (know to some as the the Tea Party) to dispel that notion.

The current crop of GOP cant'idates stoking the fires and stroking the egos of their credulous and often viciously racist followers is truly awesome--and not in a good way.

Bachman,Bush,Gingrich,Huckabee,Palin,Pawlenty,Perry,Romney,The Dongald and others who are running, exploring, definitly not running (but exploring), definitely not running or exploring (but, curiously, still raising money, just in case!) and just sorta y'know battin' the idea arouind with a few friends and overpaid "conslutants"* make me long for REAL conservatives like Goldwaterr, Romney "Origins" or Al Haig--no, wait, fuck Al Haig, that bemedaled fop.

I mean, holeeeeeeeeeeeeee shit, is that the best that the GOP can come up with, the list of braindead or teh dogwhistling Batshit KKKrazzeefucks that are out there now?  These are, as a group, the worst slate of potential CinC's I've ever seen.  We're talking orders of magnitude.  Teh Burning Stoopit that is emenating from this crowd rivals the flash that consumed the dinosaurs when that giant meteor was lobbed into the Gulf of Mexico by a vengeful GOD 6,000 years ago***.

If this was a movie, I'd rate it right down there with "Cabin Boy", the worst movie I ever sat through.  But, it's not a movie, it's a glimpse of a future I won't really have to deal with for too long.  Today's youth and their fresh-faced 'rents, otoh, will have to deal with it and what's genuinely puzzling is that they don't seem to give a a shit.  Or, at least they don't give enough of a shit to actually educate themselves about the Fuckapalooza that the GOP's primary process has turned into. 

If only that phrase, "eating their own", were true then the GOP would solve the problem they have created.  I am saddened to note that it is not.

*      The movie in which Charlton Heston, pursued by a horde of murderous fiends may have received his epiphanic moment of clarity re: guns are THE problem solver.

**    No, it's not misspelled.

***  Okay, now you know what REALLY caused "The Flood".

If you're into through-the-looking-glass conspiracy theories, such as how Amerikkkan politics is nothing but a sham, where TPTB throw up two allegedly different parties (but they're actually both representatives of the CorpoFascist Party) the Gooper dopes make perfect sense. Put out some red meat idiots for the idiotic meatheads in the Red States to salivate over. They'll think their interests are being represented. Just like leftists thought they were being represented by "O". While the REAL plan is to give corporate shill Hopeybama another 4 years to do the overlords' bidding.

But you'd have to be a crazy conspiracy theorist nut to think that could happen in the Freest-est Country In The World!©®℗℠™

You'd also have to be a conspiracy theorist nut to believe in these horrible squirrel-based mutations/genetic experiments gone awry in Ohio, such as the "Squirrkey" and the "Squirrcodile." Be afraid. Be very afraid. Unless you're the good ol' boy hunter in the video with his rifle and his mullet.

I don't like living in a country where 40 million people would vote for Michele Bachman. Hell, I hate to live in a country in which she could carry a fucking congressional district.

Hello, Elizabeth and Bukko Canukko:

Elizabeth, I hope your family are all doing well. I miss seeing your posts over at your place.

Bukko, no, I haven't gone out of business. I don't comment at the General's place because everytime I try to it publishes my real name and I don't need to have the shitheels following me home. I sent an e-mail to J.C. and a few other people and got no replies so I just gave up.

This blog has been less active because I've been spending less time blogging and much of that reduced time over at Dispatches From The Culture Wars.

I also spend some time at Coyote Chronicles, Dave von Eber's Corner Tavern and Southern Beale.

Nice to hear from both of you, and I hope to be spending more time here, soon.

Prolly best to spend less time blogging. Gives one more time for enjoying the real world. I have advantage for running off at the fingers because on my job, especially when I'm working 12-hour overnight shifts, there's a lot of time with NOTHING TO DO!!! Oh, the glory of it. Money rolling in, checking every half hour to make sure no one's hanged themselves with the bedsheets, and plenty of time to wank around on the 'puter. This gig's so good I just know they're gonna change the rules.
