GOP

somehow the Republican presidential run-up strikes me as nothing so much as a Royal Rumble during the down years in which the WWF lacked a real draw… the question is not merely “who gets the strap?,” but also, how on earth are we going to buy one of these cats as “the dude?” here’s some ABC speculation on the impending rumble.

i dunno, but i still hope it’s Romney for Theater of the Absurd purposes.  i’d say Romney-Huckabee, but that coupling is just a little too viable. huckabee could sandbag hilly with his whole “Listen…friends,” commonsense moralism.

oh, and Ron Paul is “cool” only to the extent that he poses a potential third-party, spoiler-on-the-right threat. eugene’s paul fetish is making me wanna gag…it makes too plain how all too many liberals can succumb to the same ideological fantasies of isolationism and free market-style “freedom” as guides the libertarian crusade. ick.

    From the picture of republican candidates, I can correctly name 4. Who the fuck are those guys?

    On the other hand, I could name all but 2 of the wrestlers.

    Eugene has fallen prey to the Paultards? Has no one pointed out he’s a… um, racist? I can’t believe I’m going to say this, but jeebus, some Eugeneans really need to lay off the bong for awhile.

    You mean you’re surprised that Eugene, Oregon is into Ron Paul? As if those YouTube.com spots with him staring at the camera and then proceeding to lift heavy rocks and throw them in a pond weren’t enough of a tip-off that this guy would go over big amongst the more hippiefied demographic? I agree with wobs – this crowd’s gotta give up on voting for a candidate solely based on your wishful thinking that he’ll “legalize it.”

  5. wobs Says:

    I think it was Mike Gravel who ran the stone in the pond ads – which, in addition to being puffer-friendly added a necessary bit of perfomance “art” to the standard “performances” of presidential campaigning. I don’t know how wacky Paul’s ads are. But yeah, voting for a guy because he’s anti-war and pro-legalization kind of obscures little things like wanting to end public education and privatizing sewer lines. Oh, and being a racist.

  6. Wilberrz Says:

    My bad, wobs. But maybe this just goes to show that about half of the candidates of either party just end up running into one another in the end, to a point where you can’t tell them apart unless you had a whack-o-meter.
