Crystal Meth Ballgazing

Has there ever been a gang of people more nauseatingly despicable that today's Republicans, real heirs in spirit to the Third Reich? After his campaign imploded due to his obvious plasticity, dishonesty and sociopathology, Mitt managed to sociopathically rationalize his own failure away: “If I fight on in my campaign, all the way to the convention, I would forestall the launch of a national campaign and make it more likely that Senator Clinton or Obama would win. And in this time of war, I simply cannot let my campaign be a part of aiding a surrender to terror.”

That seems just about as low as you can get, but I predict McCain and his henchmen will sink lower, much lower.

A friend of mine expressed dismay over somebody's idea that the Republicans were now favored to win the Presidency, to which I replied: The smart money's on Harlem, as Tom Waits says, and also the Repuritans, because the system is rigged several different ways. In the first place the commercial media will ignore Republicans' crimes as much as possible, and amplify their spin as much as possible, harshing on the Democrats with the vengeful glee of PMSing Heathers ; in the second place, having thus kept it "close," the commercial media will ignore election irregularities and amplify brownshirt spin so as to ensure another Florida style "victory."
