9-2-08 Silly Season – John McCain has a johnson for Sarah Palin’s well-rounded political assets

Posted by Sean on September 2, 2008

Well, Shanoah, I’d like to follow up on your post. But I can’t. Otherwise, I couldn’t share this.

Courtesy of jedreport via Wonkette.

“Oh yes oh dear sweet Jesus she’s going to the podium she’s turning around oh my God look at the political assets on her oh yeah Johnny boy likes him some back yeah he likes him that naughty librarian look and he loves him some vice-presidential badonkadonk oh yeah you mighta come in second for Miss Alaska but you’re number one  in my pants!”

Methinks McCain’s contemplating a little JFK action in the Oval Office. (I’ll give that a moment to sink in… EEEEEWWWWWWWW! Old President Sex!)

And look at him playing his wedding ring. Is it a bit tight all of a sudden, John? Suddenly old whatserface Cindy’s looking a little long in the tooth? “If it wasn’t for the money, dammit, if it wasn’t for the goddammed money I’d pull a Newt Gingrich on the old battleaxe and run off with the first piece of strange that crossed my well helloooooo Mrs. Presumptive Vice President. Turn around so I can get a feel for your well-rounded, um, qualifications.”

Yes, we’re laughing at you, John. We’re laughing at you the same way we’d laugh at a sanctimonious, Bible-thumping friend if we caught him pitching a pup tent for Lindsey Lohan. You’re not a pillar of morality. You’re not a bastion of Family Values, whatever those are. You’re just another randy old married man who’s on the lookout for some strange.

You’re anatomically correct. You’ve got a penis and, theoretically at least, some balls attached to them pumping out testosterone. You’re human. You’re fallible. We understand. The Family Values crowd might not. But we do.

And yes, Sarah Palin’s kinda hot… in a weekend local news anchor MILF kinda way. Takes all kinds to perpetuate the species, and I think we just found out your kind, John… or at least your kind for this week.

Only for the love of the gods, John… not with the vice president. And please please please don’t tell me this is the start of some twisted harem hunt for you, with you filling your cabinet posts with the highly qualified women at SluttyLibrarians.com:

“Secretary of Education Bubbles? Assistant Undersecretary of State Foxxxy? We need to have a private conference… in the Lincoln Bedroom.”

Please John. The corpses of the Founding Fathers are already spinning so fast that half of them have disappeared into the Phantom Zone. I don’t need this. I don’t need George Washington and the Continental Army rising up, Night of the Living Dead-style, and laying siege to Washington, DC while you play Hide Charlie in the Tunnel with with your number two. Because they will, John. They were okay with JFK and Marilyn Monroe because she wasn’t the vice president. They were okay with Clinton and Monica Lewinsky because she was just an intern. This’ll just send them right over the edge.

And dude… if you must, please demonstrate a little more discretion, hm? Just sneak a peek. No head movement. No gaze locks over half a second. No itchy wedding finger. Women are already incensed that you chose some unqualified pro-gun pro-life  “hockey mom” bimbo for your second-in-command. Best if you don’t let on why you chose her.

9-1-08 Silly Season – What Princess Leia has to say about policing the protests at the Republican National Convention

Posted by Sean on September 1, 2008

Well, Shanoah, here’s that raid in Minneapolis-St. Paul, according to Glenn Greenwald (I had a good story from the Washington Times on this, too, but I can’t find the link now, so I took it off this post):

Jane Hamsher and I were at two of those homes this morning — one which had just been raided and one which was in the process of being raided. Each of the raided houses is known by neighbors as a “hippie house,” where 5-10 college-aged individuals live in a communal setting, and everyone we spoke with said that there had never been any problems of any kind in those houses, that they were filled with “peaceful kids” who are politically active but entirely unthreatening and friendly.

[snip]

In the house that had just been raided, those inside described how a team of roughly 25 officers had barged into their homes with masks and black swat gear, holding large semi-automatic rifles, and ordered them to lie on the floor, where they were handcuffed and ordered not to move. The officers refused to state why they were there and, until the very end, refused to show whether they had a search warrant. They were forced to remain on the floor for 45 minutes while the officers took away the laptops, computers, individual journals, and political materials kept in the house. One of the individuals renting the house, an 18-year-old woman, was extremely shaken as she and others described how the officers were deliberately making intimidating statements such as “Do you have Terminator ready?” as they lay on the floor in handcuffs. The 10 or so individuals in the house all said that though they found the experience very jarring, they still intended to protest against the GOP Convention, and several said that being subjected to raids of that sort made them more emboldened than ever to do so.

Several of those who were arrested are being represented by Bruce Nestor, the President of the Minnesota chapter of the National Lawyers’ Guild. Nestor said that last night’s raid involved a meeting of a group calling itself the “RNC Welcoming Committee”, and that this morning’s raids appeared to target members of “Food Not Bombs,” which he described as an anti-war, anti-authoritarian protest group. There was not a single act of violence or illegality that has taken place, Nestor said. Instead, the raids were purely anticipatory in nature, and clearly designed to frighten people contemplating taking part in any unauthorized protests.

Nestor indicated that only 2 or 3 of the 50 individuals who were handcuffed this morning at the 2 houses were actually arrested and charged with a crime, and the crime they were charged with is “conspiracy to commit riot.” Nestor, who has practiced law in Minnesota for many years, said that he had never before heard of that statute being used for anything, and that its parameters are so self-evidently vague, designed to allow pre-emeptive arrests of those who are peacefully protesting, that it is almost certainly unconstitutional, though because it had never been invoked (until now), its constitutionality had not been tested. 

By the way, Greenwald has coverage of the damn-near-military protection of the convention in St. Paul, not to mention the fact that the FBI was spying on protestors, and that police had planted informants inside the protestor groups that were raided (shades of J. Edgar Hoover). Corroboration for the second here and here.

Now, the problem is that, according to news reports, some doofs amongst the protestors decided that it would be a swell idea to break stuff, light stuff on fire and get into fights with the cops. Okay, let’s just ignore the fact, for the moment, that if you want to get people on your side, the last thing that you do is break their windows and slash their tires. You do stuff like that, and you ruin it for everyone else… including the vast majority of peaceful protestors.

“See!” the apologists for the police and the FBI will say. “All these protestors are nuts! We’ve got to go to the mat with these scum! Why… they’re almost like terrorists!” And, though I know it’s bull and you know it’s bull, a lot more people will be nodding their heads and wondering How They, As Citizens, Can Help the Great Police State.

Although, even as I type that, I wonder. First of all, in almost all the coverage I’ve read about the protests in the Twin Cities, the protestors that got violent were “anarchists”. Not “protestors”. Not even “rioters”. No! They were anarchists! You know! Organized anarchists who want to Destroy Our Way Of Life! An anarchist is practically like a terrorist, you know. They both end in “ist”. Methinks there’s something a mite peculiar about the coverage of the protests in Minneapolis-St. Paul.

But more importantly, according to Boulder Weekly, there was similar violence at the Democratic National Convention, and part of the reason (it seems to me) was that protestors were allows to stage their protests only in pre-defined areas. One of the reasons that some of the protestors got violent was their First Amendment rights being truncated, even violated.

And the restrictions were even heavier in Minneapolis-St. Paul. Hell, the goon squad raided homes there, something that I haven’t heard of during the Democratic National Convention. And if it they did have raids in Denver, it only serves to prove my point further.

You have to wonder if the protests would have been mellower, with far less violence and tension, had the authorities toned it down a bit – if they’d given the protestors in Denver a little more free rein, or at least more real estate, and if they hadn’t gone Blackwater during the raids in Minnesota. I mean,  “anarchists” are usually a peaceful bunch nowadays. They only get squirrely when the police break out the black body armor and tear gas… you know, when you look up and suddenly there’s a damn good reason to be an anarchist.

But was the RNC Welcoming Committee an “anarchist” group? Well, among the items seized, according to FOXNews (so you know it’s “fair and balanced”), were:

  • “wrist rockets”: Slingshots, if I’m reading this right. Those perform great against police in riot armor and shields. Oh yeah.
  • “Assorted edged weapons including a machete, hatchet and several throwing knives”: Except for the throwing knives, household tools.
  • “Materials used in creating ‘sleeping dragons'”: The hell is a sleeping dragon? Excuse me? Readers out here who didn’t go to Blackwater Summer Camp?
  • “large amounts of urine”: RAWK. The GOP’s been pissing on us so long, I figure we should return the favor.
  • “Gas mask and filter”: A gas mask, singular, one, for 50 people.
  • “Material for protective padding”: Cos we all know how good thick clothes hold up against a close-range salvo of rubber bullets, tear gas, pepper spray, billy clubs and water cannons.
  • “Empty glass bottles”, “rags” and “flammable liquids”: OMG! They were going to make Molotovs! Or they just happened to have some empty bottles, a rag bag and a can of gasoline out in the garage! Hell, I have empty bottles, a rag bag and kerosene out in the garage. Doesn’t mean I’m gonna make kerosene bombs out of them.

In other words, if this isn’t complete or partial bullshit (and considering the source, I can’t help but think that it is bullshit), then the RNC Welcoming Committee wasn’t a bunch of innocent lambs. OK. Granted.

But was the Code Red response really warranted… especially if the police supposedly had informants inside the RNC Welcoming Committee telling them exactly how the group was armed? Do we really need to go David Koresh against some slingshots, throwing knives and unassembled Molotov cocktails?

“But sir! They have large amounts of urine!”
“Oh… my… GOD. Break out the tactical nuke! They might throw some piss at us while we’re laying down suppressing fire with the 50-caliber machine guns, and that’s just gross!”

I’m suddenly reminded of the words of that eminent statesman and diplomat, Princess Leia: “The more you tighten your grip, Tarkin, the more star systems will slip through your fingers. “

8-4-08 Silly Season – We the Happy Proletariat Adore Our Fearless Leader, Part III

Posted by Sean on August 4, 2008

Sigh. Wish I got to Bomb Iran first, Shanoah.

But nothing can bring me down today. Nope, I’m happy as a pig wallowing in my own dinner and doo doo.

Why?

Because John Rich’s Raising McCain is up! Now lie back and relax, baby, and let the smoooove soul of John Rich’s Raising McCain take over and treat you raht, courtesy of that fahn, fahn lady IslandGurl2286. Aw yeaaaaaah, it’s funk and it’s funkalicious.

Oh-kay. Maybe it’s not funkalicious.

I’m an English major, so let’s analyze – deconstruct, as it were, and preferably with a wrecking ball – Raising McCain. First, Rich treats us to these stirring and stunningly creative lyrics:

We’re all just raising McCain
Yeah, we’re all just raising McCain
You can get on the train or get out of the way
We’re all just raising McCain

I hope he didn’t strain himself thinking those lines up. Oh, and if you don’t catch these lines the first time, don’t worry, you’ll have ample opportunity to catch them again. Trust me.

Then there’s some stuff about McCain being “shot down in a Vietnam town”, like the Vietnam War was nothing more than the gunfight at the OK Corral, and his being held as a POW in the Hanoi Hilton. I can’t help but think that Rich gives this rather important episode in McCain’s life remarkably short shrift – two stanzas worth, if my count is right. It’s an even more glaring oversight because, besides a catchy refrain, that’s the entire song.

Anyhoo, we reprise the refrain again, and again. And again. And, just in case you haven’t figured out yet that we’re all just raising McCain and you have the option of either getting out of the way or getting on the train (which actually scans better than Rich’s lyrics, I think)… AGAIN.

That’s it. Nothing about McCain’s policies or why you should vote for him, other than the fact that he’s a “real man”. (I’ll say it before and I’ll say it again: Bush was supposed to be a real man, and look where he got us) In Rich’s defense, I don’t think he was informed of McCain’s policies and, judging by some of the comments he’s made lately, neither has McCain.

In other words, Raising McCain is basic hoot-and-holler Top 40 country music. But instead of being about how the singer is damn proud to be a redneck even though he can’t see the nearest backroad or trailer park from his Nashville condo and would probably be eaten alive in a real roadhouse, it’s all about how we’re all raising McCain. And raising him again. And again. And again. Rich obviously hasn’t heard about the 22nd Amendment to the United States Constitution.

I really don’t know why this song gets me riled up.  Raising McCain is inoffensive pap. You can practically hear the cashier going kaCHING every time Rich says “McCain”. And he’s trying so hard to piss us rich city-slickers off with his bad boy attitude (a bad boy who just happens to vote Republican. Uh huh). It’s true that he’s pissed off one: me. But instead of demoralizing me, I’m even more fired up to get Barack Obama elected. I mean, if this is all McCain stands for…

Maybe it’s so abrasive because it’s nothing more than Top 40 country and western, which is the antithesis of all that is right and good in the world. Gimme something from Cash or either Guthrie any day, grumble grumble. (Woody would’ve written a kick-ass campaign song for McCain, assuming of course that he would’ve even voted for McCain)

You know what? I actually prefer Politics as Usual, the song that Ludacris wrote for Obama. I mean, it’s just as stupid as Raising McCain, but at least Ludacris sounds fired up (and off his meds, but that’s another matter). Rich just sounds like he’s cashing a paycheck.

And I think that illustrates a real difference in the two candidates. One’s tapioca pudding and the other’s hot sauce. Which do you really think we need to fix Bush 43’s messes?

(Oh, and I have to thank Shanoah for giving me the heads-up on this song… but not this particular video. It felt kinda wrong using a video by iLoveJohnRich to rag on a song by John Rich)

Silly Season – Bombing Frankenstein

Posted by shanoah on August 4, 2008

Oh, that was just that *I* wanted to take a break from politics for a day. Especially since music was coming a lot easier then politics at the time.

As a warning, today seems to be a bit of a beat up on McCain day. And we’ll start with this clip.

It got him some flack, and deservedly so:

Bomb Iran

His response when questioned on it was, incidentally, “Get a life.”. That hasn’t prevented others from expanding on it, naturally:

Bomb Iran (Alex Arrowsmith)

His website has “I may be the lunatic you’re looking for” on it. I knew there was something I liked about him…

And, yes, I must admit, I generally support not bombing people. Except when necessary, anyways. (Going after Iraq because of terrorist attacks from people in a different country doesn’t qualify, incidentally.)

Now, Frankenstein has come up before in this blog, and that makes featuring this verbal slip of McCains all the more appropriate:

McCain is “Older then Frankenstein”

McCain is older then Frankenstein. (or is that older then his monster?) So, does that peg him as one of the elder gods?

Contrary to this thought, it’s been suggested that he actually in a new breed of monster, McCainenstein:

McCainenstein!

Got a few laughs out of that one. And don’t worry. If I find a few good clips that Obama deserves to be beat about the shoulders about, I’ll be glad to post them.

But McCain just makes it so easy…

Silly Season – Politics

Posted by shanoah on August 2, 2008

Yep. It is that season again. And the war on Iraq was “fucking stupid“. On the Other Hand, if it’s the silly season, where’s the silliness? And music has been a consistant theme, so where’s the music?

Well, I thought I’d provide a bit of both. Like Sean, I’m probably far left. It is worth noting that if you are outside of the US this is considered “slightly left of center”. There are no main real left-wing parties in the US.

And, unfortunately, I’m likely to vote for Obama, despite being very upset at him for voting yes on telecom immunity.

Anyways, politics brings out song parodies, and pro and con songs for both candidates, and I thought I’d play a few.

Today, I’m going with pro.

So here’s a pro Obama song. Sort of. On acid:

Barack OBollywood

Silly pictures of Obama aside, this song is “Chori Chori Gori Se”, being sung by Jimi Mistry.

Now an interlude, to remind us of our present leadership:

Sunday, Bloody Sunday

Bush sings (sort of) U2. This is a brilliant piece of editing.

I suppose I should have something pro McCain here, for fairness:

Who’ll Stop McCain?

You know, now that I’ve played this, I’ll have to play something more firmly pro-Obama then O’Bollywood. Wish I could have found something as out there for McCain. But then, he’s decidedly boring.

Ever notice that anything for McCain *has* to badmouth other candidates, though?

And don’t worry, I’ll do a post of anti songs at some point…

8-1-08 Deep breath and… OFF the deep end…

Posted by Sean on August 1, 2008

I am somewhat left-leaning, and yet I cannot be said to be enthusiastic about Barack Obama. The only person I can be said to be less enthusiastic about is John McCain. Unfortunately, in the United States’ two-choices-is-no-choices political system, that puts me in Obama’s corner [1].

Still, the collective dream of election season has begun, and it’s probably past time I waded in and joined the dreamers. In other words, this is probably the first of many posts about the election. So you don’t waste your time, I’ll put the phrase “Silly Season” somewhere in the titles of the political posts leading up to Nov. 4. That way, you’ll be able to skip those and get on with something more rewarding, like that root canal you’ve been putting off.

Now, I don’t normally like sullying my blog with such silliness (I prefer sullying it with such silliness as Pickle Surprise), but you may remember that ad that McCain put up about Barack Obama going to the gym instead of visiting a soldier’s hospital. (And yes, I know this is old. You’ll see why I picked it in a bit…) Specifically, it was a visit to Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany on July 25. According to MSNBC’s First Read site, dated that day:

Obama made phone calls to wounded soldiers at Landstuhl Germany this morning, in lieu of a personal visit to the forces that was canceled by the Obama campaign.

Obama was expected to speak to a number of soldiers individually.

That’s it: two grafs, two sentences, a non-event. I was a very bad reporter, and even I would’ve known it was a nothing story.

So thank God for McCain’s campaign staff for cluing me in! They passed around the lone brain cell that they share and came up with this. Courtesy of JohnMcCaindotcom. (Someone should tell John he doesn’t really need to spell out the “dot” in “dot com”, snark snark snark) This ad is startling, not in what it reveals about Obama, but in what it reveals about McCain. More on that below.

FactCheck.org has some little quibbles about this ad, like the fact that he’s visited two other military hospitals, one in Baghdad, during his Mideast trip without a press escort, and that the Department of Defense cancelled the trip, not Obama, because it might be percieved as a political trip. (Like the other two weren’t? Wobbity wobbity wobbity)

And MoveOn.org (ah ha! we come to the reason for this post!) has some little quibbles, too. I’m on their mailing list, and they sent out an e-mail last night that repeats the above. They also sent a link to a counter-movie from bravenewpac.

“Hmmm,” thought I. “A free link to a YouTube movie for a YouTube troll like me? Count me in!”

And thus did I become an attack dog for MoveOn.org.

I’ve got a couple little quibbles about McCain’s ad, too:

  1. Why would a soldier who’d held his friend’s guts in his hands just moments before having part of his leg blown off even want to meet a presidential candidate? “Hmmmm… I can meet a junior senator from Illinois, or I can go to physical therapy and learn how to walk again… tough choice…”
  2. And please tell me how the hell this is a dis? especially when Obama’s visited two other military hospitals during his trip, one of them in Baghdad?
  3. And even if it was a dis, I don’t care. I frankly don’t care if Obama (or McCain!) took a detour to Arlington National Cemetery to piss on the grave of Omar Bradley. I’m getting to the point where I’ll overlook minor felonies in both the candidates – hell, all the candidates. Just put someone in the White House who can undo the mess of eight years of George W. Bush.

It’s amazing, stepping back a bit, just how petty McCain’s ad is (but, then, it is an election ad…). This supposed “controversy” is like one of the unhealthier strains of fungi: Expose it to even a hint of sunlight and it dries up and blows away.

The reason is simple. Take the veil off for a minute and look at this clearly and dispassionately: What does this manufactured tempest-in-a-teacup about Obama’s decision or ability to visit a hospital have to do with, well, anything?

What does it tell us about his policies? His plans? His decision-making skills? His emotional stability? His statesmanship? His (Gods help me for using this word) character?

Nothing.

Jack, zip, nada and nothing. 

But it does tell me a lot about McCain’s (ack! ptui!) character: He’s petty. He panics easy. He’ll lie to your face about playing it above board and then slip a knife into you under the table.

Lemme ask ya this: Is that the kind of president that you want?

Now that we’ve set out the troll bait, let’s get back into the blind with David Attenborough and see what happens.

The male Republican staffer troll approaches the bait. If he doesn’t like what he sees, he will flash his genitals at it as a warning – yes, there he goes! And those are remarkably small genitals for such a large specimen! Words like “pencil dick” and “micropenis” come to mind. As you can see, the bait is not submissively urinating at the troll’s display, which clearly has confused the troll so… OH MY GOD! Steve, did you get that! I’ve never seen such a ferocious and utterly mindless attack in all my life! It’s almost like the troll lost its head and went completely insane!

[1] I wish the United States had the political system of a place like France. France has, what, a political party for every three people [2]? And they all have a seat in Parliament? And they all hate each other? And there are major riots every four days or so? Dude, government-by-riot would RAWK.

[2] I would belong to Les hauts Explosifs et les Chapeaux Bêtes – the High Explosives and Silly Hats party. Yes! A pound of Semtex in every pot and a baby bonnet on every head! [3]

[3] Yes, I like Monty Python. How did you guess? [4]

[4] I also like footnotes. [5]

[5] Like this one. [6]

[6] Yes, I stole that joke from you, Shanoah.

2-4-08 A thought before Super Tuesday, FIRST BLOOD PART TWO

Posted by Sean on February 4, 2008

Ok, for some reason, I thought that last Tuesday was Super Tuesday. Call it my Mencia-esque “deedeedee” moment.

So, not too let good old go to waste,  I’m posting it again, because what I said last Monday still applies this Monday.

=/=/=/=

So ya want “change”™, huh? Well, you won’t get it unless you get a little fired up – you know, a little rowdy. And if there’s anything that a political brouhaha like Super Tuesday needs, it’s a little rowdiness. I’ve got just the music to get you riled up.

NOTE: Some of these links ain’t work-safe. Browse at your own peril.

First, before we go any further, let’s remind ourselves what’s at stake here. Woody Guthrie‘s got just the song for that: This Land is Your Land.

Waskey Elwood Walls, Jr. reminds us how far we have(n’t) come during Silly Season with his funkalicious Jimmy Carter campaign song Jimmy Carter Says Yes, a paean to The Big-Toothed One that would have even Kim Jong-il – or the adoring Romney hand puppets on FOXNews – wincing with embarassment. Thanks to Dorian at WFMU for this one.

For you Republicans and Risk fans such who think that the War on Terror™ is so neat but, you know, don’t want to inconvenience yourselves by actually joining the military and going overseas and actually fighting this conflict that is so indispensible to The Future of Our Nation™, Creedence Clearwater Revival‘s got just the song for you: Fortunate Son.

For you types who think that what this country needs is a more authoritarian leader – maybe even one of those neat theocracies like they have in Iran, who knows! – Jello Biafra and the Dead Kennedys bring you Holiday in Cambodia, and remind you what it’s like “where they get things done”.

For you fundies out there, Eric Schwartz sends his best with Keep Your Jesus Off My Penis (thanks to Lord Yellow Dog).

Not to be undone, Marilyn Manson, the fundie boogeyman, chimes in with mOBSCENEif only to remind you that we’ve been living in a Satanic nation since Sept. 11, 2001 (but then, you knew that already).

For us working slobs on the outside looking in on all this craziness, there’s One Big Union from Matthew Grimm and the Red Smear, guaranteed to scare the bejeezus out of “New” Democrats and Republicans alike (pretty much all the candidates, in other words). Don’t let your boss or “immediate supervisor” catch you listening to this. (thanks to Down With Tyrany)

Public Enemy reminds us all to just Shut ‘Em Down, always a good thing to remember in any election year.

And Eminem travels the road blazed by Chuck D and Flavor Flav et al. with 2004’s Mosh, which I first heard and saw, again thanks to Lord Yellow Dog, during the election that year. This is the version that aired before the election. There’s another version here, with Mr. Mathers leading the charge into the Capitol, but I don’t think that’s called for… yet.

And if storming the castle is called for, Joni Minstrel‘s got the soundtrack for our rowdy rabble with Whiskey and Beer.

And finally… it’s been said before, but it needs to be said again… DragonForce‘s Through the Fire and Flames, just what you need to hear before you go out to battle, political or otherwise.
