What keys? House keys? Boat keys? ALAN Keyes?
|The Daily Show With Jon Stewart||Mon – Thurs 11p / 10c|
(H/t to Profane for sending this on to me, and keeping me current with what I’m missing without cable teebee.) What Einstein came up with that one? “Yeah, yeah, ‘don’t give them the keys back.’ That’s the ticket–just slap that on a ‘Baby on Board’-type yellow sign thingie, and make it into a key ring, and we’ve won ourselves another election!”
Tim Kaine is a totally overrated one-term former Governor of Virginia. (One term’s all they can serve there–so that part’s not his fault.) That this d00d was asked to be the DNC Chair is all you need to know about the leadership and direction of the Democratic Party, and about its likely electoral fate in November. (But thanks for the crappy loser swag, Timmy!) In that interview above, he’s not just whistling past the graveyard–he’s trying to lead a full-on gospel choir, and failing miserably. As I’ve noted here before, losing Jon Stewart is not where the Dems want to be.
The 2010 Dems couldn’t govern or campaign their way to a victory over the Whig party, ca. 1856. They can’t even use fear effectively–and that’s the lowest form of campaigning. Even my little gray kitty (named Mouse for a reason!), neutered when he was 5 months old, has more stones than your average Democrat. And he’s got a much clearer agenda than President Obama or the Dems seem to have these days. (FEED ME nap nap nap FEED ME nap nap nap. It’s a clear agenda–not a particularly interesting one.)
I’ll now resume my silence on the upcoming elections. I feel like such a sucker that I actually cared in 2003-2008, and donated a pile of dough, and worked for congressional and presidential candidates because I thought electing them would make a difference. I used to believe what I teach in my introductory American history course: that democracy is good, that We the People can–you know, all of the standard Marxist feminist anti-American bull$hit. Now, well–I’m just glad I don’t have to teach that course for another 16 months.
