Mitt 2012. Bumper sticker. The pathetic [endless] gathering of nincompoops on TV last night made it perfectly clear to anyone without a horse in the game that it will be Mitt Romney v. Barack Obama in 2012. The delusional right-wingers are still in deep denial that their Tea Party candidates can’t touch Romney. They are still bashing him on their blogs- as if that will change reality. It is almost pathetic to read the blogs and comments of the Tea Party types: it truly is an alternate universe.
Where was Rick Perry, the darling of the Tea Party, last night? It looked to me that he’s burned toast. And 9-9-9 Cain, the other darling of the cave-right, has all of the qualifications for mayor of a small town. And the rest. Who???
Of course I quite enjoy the dust-up taking place among the hijackers of the once-Grand Old Party. They remind me of those Somali pirates operating in the Indian Ocean- lots of blather, few brains. Like the 11 pirates captured yesterday aboard a ship that they couldn’t operate, the GOP-hijackers captured a major political party but they don’t know crap about governance.
I know how truly reactionary the far-right wing is and because of that characteristic, they will, no doubt, drive themselves and perhaps their entire political party off the cliff with righteous indignation rather than seeing the reality of it all. What irony. They hate the president with every fiber of their being, yet they appear to be so doggedly ideological that they may in fact help the president in his reelection bid. How’s that for burlesque?
