Attention citizens seeking elected office

As of Nov 4, 2008, The Karl Rove Fling Shit and Hope Enough Sticks standard has been replaced by the David Axlerod Address the Issues, Display Intelligence, Connect with the People Not Just Your Base, Think Fast, Move Fast, Hit Only Above the Belt but HIT HARD Standard.

I know, I know. Many of you say issues are booooring and it’s too hard to learn all that stuff and you wonder why can’t we keep doing things the old way.

Because shut up. That’s why.

Now, I hope you were taking copious notes during the past election cycle or your asses will be crushed. So stop whining and put on your work out clothes so you can start pole-vaulting practice. You’ve got a really high bar to clear.

Commence Operation Disenfranchise the Darkies & the Proles

I can’t decide if John Boehner is a festering stinking asshole or a festering, putrid stinking asshole on a dead skunk. See what you think (via the AssPress):

House Republican leader John Boehner on Wednesday urged President Bush to block all federal funds to a grass-roots community group that has been accused of voter registration fraud.

“It is evident that ACORN is incapable of using federal funds in a manner that is consistent with the law,” Boehner, R-Ohio, wrote Bush, saying that funds should be blocked until all federal investigations into the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now are completed.

I’m sure he was equally concerned when federal fund recipient Blackwater started using the citizens of Iraq for target practice. But wait, it gets better:

Boehner said he and other Republicans were also asking the Justice Departmentto investigate ACORN’s connections to the home mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, saying ACORN “appears to have played a key role in the irresponsible schemes that led to the current financial meltdown.”

Why stop there Johnny? You could have accused them of engineering the 9/11 attacks to the increase in diabetes.

Holy shit, history

I don’t intend to cover the campaign because everyone else I read does a much better job. However, I should pause to note that Barack Obama’s nomination is official, shouldn’t I?

You’re right. I don’t know what the hell’s the matter with me either. In my defense, it ain’t exactly a huge surprise and I have to pace myself for the election.

Please don’t tell my mom.

Anyway. I have been wanting to do this:

It’s 0300. The phone rings. Who do you expect to hear the phone?

Two Guys, One Fail

Smart statergery from the GOP (via The AssPress):

President Bush starts raising money for John McCain’s campaign next week, but the three fundraisers are closed, so there will be no news media cameras photographing the outgoing and incoming Republican party leaders together nor reporters observing their joint appearances.

Two things:

1. If we could rely on Das Press to do more than tell us who was there, what they ate and what they were wearing, we might give a flaming damn.

2. “Outgoing and incoming Republican leaders“? Excuse me, you misspelled L-O-S-E-R-S.

Bush has headlined numerous fundraisers for the Republican National Committee this election cycle, starting last year.

And despite the repeated beatings the GOP has received, they keep asking him to help.


The Chimperor has 241 days left to finish destroying the Republican Party. Godspeed Mr. President!
