Debate Solution

September 25th, 2008 by J Cubed

Apparently, the Presidential candidates are still hammering out the bailout legislation. If they’re still working on it by Friday evening, I have the perfect solution. Letterman hit on it a little, but I think the Obama campaign needs to push this idea: have the VP debate Friday. Palin doesn’t have anything to do right now, and we can spare Biden from the Senate longer than the top of the ticket. The site’s all ready, everything’s in place, just send the VP candidates down. I’m sure they’re both ready to jump in at a moment’s notice; that’s the main qualification of a Vice President.

I like the implicit “again” at the end.

Mitt, you shit

MittIf America really wants to change, it’s time to look for the sun in the west, because it’s about to rise and shine from Arizona and Alaska.

Ha ha ha, nice Reagan dogwhistle, Mitt. Hey, what’s wester than Arizona and just about as westy as Alaska? That’s right; Hawaii, birthplace of presidential candidate Barack Obama. Also, the sun rising in the west? See what homeschooling gets you?

MittIs a Supreme Court decision liberal or conservative that awards Guantanamo terrorists with constitutional rights? It’s liberal.

Is a government liberal or conservative that puts the interests of the teachers union ahead of the needs of our children? It’s liberal.

Is a Congress liberal or conservative that stops nuclear power plants and off-shore drilling, making us more and more dependent on Middle Eastern tyrants? It’s liberal.

Is government spending, putting aside inflation, liberal or conservative if it doubles since 1980? It’s liberal.

We need change all right: change from a liberal Washington to a conservative Washington.

We have a prescription for every American who wants change in Washington: Throw out the big-government liberals and elect John McCain and Sarah Palin.

Wait, “Guantanamo terrorists”? They’re not terrorists from Guantanamo. They had nothing to do with Guantanamo until we put them there.
Why does it have to be teacher’s unions or children? How about both of them, but not multinational corporations?
Dependent on Middle Eastern tyrants. [snort] I think we all know who actually does their bidding.

Oh, and the “throw out” construction generally requires a direct personal replacement. Who are McCain and Palin replacing?

MittOur economy is under attack. China is acting like Adam Smith on steroids, buying oil from the world’s worst and selling nuclear technology. Russia and the oil states are siphoning more than $500 billion a year from us in what could become the greatest transfer of economic wealth in the history of the world.

I learned it from you, Dad!!

MittLast week, last week, did you hear any Democrats talk about the threat from radical, violent jihad? No. You see, Republicans believe that there is good and evil in the world. Ronald Reagan called out the evil empire. George Bush labeled the terror-sponsor states exactly what they are: The axis of evil.

Look carefully: called out, labeled. These are language verbs. They are forms of naming. They are not verbs of action. It is literally talking the talk, not walking the walk.

This item is seriously fucked up. I don’t know if it’s good or bad that it’s no longer available. They’re probably waiting for the new edition with the Gitmo revisions.

What has happened to the meaning of cynical? I’ve always understood it to mean that someone distrusts the apparently pure motives of others. And the definitions I can find agree. But lately, more and more, I’ve seen it used to describe people who truly operate under those motives that real cynics ascribe to them. That’s not cynicism, that’s assholedom. Or douchenozzery.
