Tump, the Jackass, Ascendent

K…just had to comment on this…We all know Trump is a jackass…wait…we don’t all know that. Somehow we *don’t* all know that Trump is a jackass.

We *should* know that, because it’s so incredibly obvious…but anyway I’ll give you a quick example of one of his tricks, because it’s blatant, pathetic and should be called out.

Any one who has read my stuff for any amount of time knows what I think of “political correctness”. It’s stupid bullshit. If a moron is acting like a moron, they need to be called a moron. Dumbing down and sanitizing language and social interaction limits one of great equalizers in social societies, public shame.

I much prefer an open, combative dialogue, than a hushed, oppressed one. This is somewhere I diverge quite a bit from folks who have to follow these rules to get paid. I don’t get paid, I just have fun, so it makes things a bit more chaotic from an editing standpoint.

Regardless of all that, what Trump does is play the game both ways. He claims to hate the not of PC talk, but then hides behind it when called out. “Schlong” is a word for dick. Being “schlonged” is being “fucked”. Much like how he called out Megyn Kelly for being on the rag, and then claiming he was talking about a nosebleed, he retreats behind the PC lie when needed.

My guess is that he like many of his supporters, will finally just end up calling Hillary a “dumb bitch” and be done with it.

I do think you have to hit back, and do so harder, when folks get out of line like this, as Trump has. The “rules” of PC don’t allow that, which is why it was a dumb idea, for the most part.

It leaves you exposed to someone like Trump, or Cruz, who hide behind the very linguistic curtain they publicly claim to despise. Which can lead to *very* dark places, if they gain power using such techniques.

When I said that Hillary Clinton got schlonged by Obama, it meant got beaten badly. The media knows this. Often used word in politics!

Is it physically possible for someone to be a larger hypocrite than Mitt Romney?

Let me give you a couple quotes….from yesterday….

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Tuesday delivered a harsh indictment of President Barack Obama’s re-election strategy, accusing the president of running a “campaign of division and anger and hate.”

“His campaign strategy is to smash America apart and then cobble together 51 percent of the pieces. If an American president wins that way, we all lose,” Romney told a crowd of thousands standing outside the Ross County Court House in southern Ohio.

And from back in May….re: Donald Trump…

When asked about Trump’s remarks last week questioning whether Obama was born in the United States, Romney said he doesn’t agree with everything his supporters believe, but in the coming election he’ll need their support.

“You know I don’t agree with all the people who support me and my guess is they don’t all agree with everything I believe in,” Romney told reporters on an airplane before taking off for a campaign appearances Tuesday in Colorado and Las Vegas. “But I need to get 50.1 percent or more and I”m appreciative to have the help of a lot of good people.”

Now…of course you are thinking…”yea, he’s about as big a hypocrite as I can imagine.”

But wait…what if his stated political philosophy is to be a huge hypocrite

That is the nature of politics, which is that you always accuse the other guy of doing what you’ve done yourself,” said Romney in a Wednesday morning Fox News appearance.

So there you go…lie and then call the other guy a liar.   Cater to nuts, then blame the other guy for doing it.

The Obama World Tour : Reaction (Race Card Analysis)

“People of the world — look at Berlin, where a wall came down, a continent came together, and history proved that there is no challenge too great for a world that stands as one,” Obama said at Berlin’s Victory Column in the Tiergarten park.

“The fall of the Berlin Wall brought new hope. But that very closeness has given rise to new dangers — dangers that cannot be contained within the borders of a country or by the distance of an ocean,” he said.

Obama said people of all nations must stand together to face challenges of the 21st century — from terrorism to global warming to genocide.

“We cannot afford to be divided. No one nation, no matter how large or powerful, can defeat such challenges alone. None of us can deny these threats or escape responsibility in meeting them,” he said.

And so the world’s introduction to Obama to complete. Now pretty much everyone knows who he is and what he stands for.

At least for those outside the U.S. Inside the U.S. there is still plenty of work being done to reduce his candidacy and the man himself to a simple concept. A basic label. This process is now complete.

Obama is “The One”.

Yup. The Annointed One. The Saviour of All that is Good and Holy.

Not a bad label, really, when you compare it to some of the previous attempts.

Much of this was solidified by his speech last week in Berlin.

More on this one later. As with many things that illicit a strong reaction, this one is probably best processed personally.

Update: 8/7/08…just got back from driving across the country with a friend who was moving across the country.
