Scandals of the Republican Candidates...
« on: February 07, 2008, 08:04:19 PM »
Romney dropped out today. His kids must have gotten to him, "Daddy, spend another penny of our inheritance and lose your manhood." There are 3 remaining candidates and the facts are, well ... they are fascinating ...  :o

Read about the DuMond case on WikiPedia:

Now read about the Keating Five:

Ron Paul is 100% scandal-less.  How could that be? Hmm ...

it hasnt been for lack of trying, thats for sure.
all the attempts to tar dr paul with scandal have failed spectacularly, so much so that big media is left with only one strategy: ignore him completely. the only problem is, with only three contenders, it becomes conspicuous. comically so, in my opinion.
(i cant wait until abcnnbcbs shows a pie graph with a >50% 'other' slice.)

politics and sports are more alike than different, especially here in 21st century america. and any coach, in any sport, at any level, will tell you that the worst thing you can do when playing against an underdog is let them hang around, giving them a chance to win at the end of the game.

From this side of the Atlantic it seems as though the Men Behind the Curtain can't make their collective mind up between That Woman, Osama, and Son of Cain. On balance it looks as though they'll go with Son of Cain for the RepoCrats, and That Woman for Demonicons for the Great Floor Show in November, but which they're going to select seems unclear to us - probably That Woman?

Yes - it's verklempt... ;D

On January 22, 1008, it was Clinton - by "gut feeling".
On February 8, 2008, it's McCain - because "Clinton would be (slightly) more involved in the 'piss process'"

McCain is now the mensch - by a hair over Bloomberg (yep, always Bloomberg up there), followed by Clinton.

Every time you need to know where this is going, just ask "the man". The media and the pollswill follow.
Still no "he who can't be mentioned" on the list of 26 named... 8)

They are going to do their damnedest not to mention "other", and try and "treat him with a complete ignoral" (as one trade unionist once said to former UK PM Harold Wilson) and hope he just goes away. Wishful thinking.

When a crowd of irate Ron Paul fans chased Hannity out of a restaurant ... the networks didn't like that.




When Ron Paul put Sean Hannity in his place ... the networks didn't like that.



The networks continue to marginalize Ron Paul and his supporters. Our local network here already reported McCain as the winner of the Republican nomination. They also spoke highly of Osama, I mean Obama. The networks are doing what they do best, reporting their winners. How about our primaries? Republicans can only vote for  Republicans; Democrats for only Democrats. Earlier this week, the same network who declared McCain the(ir) winner was exercising some discontent with the fact that Louisiana has lots of Independents and they will be excluded from the primaries. They even suggested that if you're Independent, you will only be able to vote for a Democrat. Now, they stand corrected while the public pick up the pieces of their confusing deliberation. Talk about Taxation without Representation!

Here is an excellect reason why they wish that "the one that can't be mentioned" would go away...

This is from a current poll:

"Forty-eight percent said a pullout [from Iraq] would help fix the country's economic problems "a great deal," and an additional 20 percent said it would help at least somewhat."



This is a copy and paste of my comment elsewhere:

Let's think about this one for a second (I heard an astonished Blitzer talk about it earlier).

48 + 20 = 68% of "sheeple" (he), think the best course to fix the economy - or at least help - would be to "just come home"!

Where would the people get this 'kooky' idea?
- certainly not from the media...
- certainly not from any 'viable' presidential candidate. They all subscribe to the rebate make-believe...

The people could only have gotten the idea from the tireless repetition by the only credible candidate and his army of supporters.
As an aside: it's interesting that exactly at this moment, the suggestion is floated to stop talking about the war - to help Ron Paul, of course...

Having established where the sudden wisdom of the masses must from ( for the most part), are we then to believe that only 0.5 to 1% of them would vote for "the man with the answer" to "the most critical issue for the voters"? Would it not be much more reasonable to assume at least one quarter (12-17% of population at large), which just happens to be the numbers observed in various caucuses...


It's all so simple. As my "smarter half" (43 years, yesterday, and also better looking) pointed out, the numbers-freaks had to try and settle the issue by Super-Tuesday. Elections are exactly nine months after that date, and will (hopefully) give them the birth to another round of holy murder and mayhem.

But - BUT - nine months is also plenty of time to get this revolution from the keyboards into the streets... ;D
