A Southpark Metaphor For McCain’s Speech

I was just having a smoke pondering Senator McCain’s speech at the RNC Convention 2008, and I was struck by a pretty strong metaphor.

Now, go with me a minute here. This is really only going to make the slightest bit of sense to people who have seen ‘Southpark: The Move’. Preferably more than once.

Other’s might get distracted by the metaphor.

In the movie Satan (in this case a metaphor for the U.S. electorate) is in bed with Saddam Hussein (in the case a metaphor for the Republican party). Now Satan (the U.S.) is sick of Saddam’s (Republican’s) crap. Saddam consistently treats Satan like a sex object, refuses to cuddle, and the U.S. is sick of it.

So Satan is ready to dump the Republicans and makes that hope clear.

And then Saddam starts singing…

But I can change, I can change!!!
I can learn to keep my promises, I swear it!
I’ll open up my heart and I will share it!
Any minute now I will be born again!
Yes I can change, I can change!!!
I know I’ve been a dirty little bastard
La la la la la lalala!

*hectic*
I like to kill, I like to maim, yes, I’m insane, but IT’S OK
CAUSE I CAN CHANGE!!!!!!!
*sigh*
Its not my fault that Im so evil
Its society, society.

So that’s pretty much what I heard. It’s not our fault. It’s the media. And those corrupt Republicans in Washington.

The people that caused the problems are going to change…themselves…and all the problems are solved.

It’s a joke, don’t you get it?

RNC Convention, “We Won In Iraq!!!” (NEWS: McCain is a POW)

I just watched Lindsey Graham (R-Wonderland) tell me that not only did the surge win the war in Iraq, but it was all thanks to John McCain. Yes, folks, John McCain won the war in Iraq.

You may now rest peacefully.

Build More New-Clear Plants

I saw a quick bit on CNN about something so I decided to do a bit of personal research.

This is really quite funny. See if you can spot the special difference…

From the Palin Speech

Starting in January, in a McCain-Palin administration, we’re going to lay more pipelines … build more new-clear plants … create jobs with clean coal … and move forward on solar, wind, geothermal, and other alternative sources.

Another one…

Starting in January, in a McCain-Palin administration, we’re going to lay more pipelines … build more new-clear plants … create jobs with clean coal … and move forward on solar, wind, geothermal and other alternative sources.

Aaaah, found a real one.

Starting in January, in a McCain-Palin administration, we’re going to lay more pipelines… build more nuclear plants… create jobs with clean coal… and move forward on solar, wind, geothermal, and other alternative sources.

And finally CBS and PBS, for the clincher.

Starting in January, in a McCain-Palin administration, we’re going to lay more pipelines … build more new-clear plants … create jobs with clean coal … and move forward on solar, wind, geothermal, and other alternative sources.

O.k. so…what is this about? Which one of these is not like the others?

Take your time….(playing Jeopardy music…..still playing Jeopardy music….and….done).

So you figured it out, right? The “real” one is the one cleaned up by the BBC to make sense to English speakers. In “English” the phrase “nuclear plants” makes sense and people know how to say it.  The phrase “new-clear plants” kind of sounds the same, but makes no sort of logical sense.

In all the other “official versions” of the speech, they left in the phonetic pronounciation “new-clear” that was used on the TelePromptHer during the live speech. This was done because Sarah Palin, like George W. Bush before her, has a curious habit of pronouncing the word “nuclear” as “nukular”. Many people, rightly in hindsight, pointed to this as a reason George W. Bush was unqualified to be President. Despite the fact that he had been re-elected Governor of Texas, he had very little intellectual curiousity about the world and about real, effective, government. And he was kind of an idiot.

This was done to avoid looking like that. And know the evidence of what they did to avoid looking stupid is all over the world (and someone caught it on tape…which I’ll find as soon as I find it).

NOTE: It should be noted that this is also a flippity-floppity from her previous position.  ‘Energy Expert’ my ass.

The environment. As governor, Palin vetoed wind power and clean coal projects, including a 50-megawatt wind farm on Fire Island and a clean coal facility in Healy that had been mired in a dispute between local and state governments.

And the Hypocrisy Grows…

…I dunno about you, but I’m noting dangerous levels of hypocrisy coming from a certain direction. No, not the Whitehouse. I’ve already detailed the stench emanating from that direction. This stuff is flowing down from the North, not the East.
