Oh hell no.

According to CNN, the National Republican Senatorial Committee emailed a "Proxy Ballot" to 'Puke supporters, asking them "Who ya'll like in 2012 for pres'dent?"

Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, former Utah. Gov. Jon Huntsman, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, Sen. John McCain, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, Texas Rep. Ron Paul, Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty and former Massachusetts Mitt Romney.

Well, at least Obama doesn't have anything to worry about in the next election, right?

Barbour, Bush, Daniels, Newt, McCain, Paul and The Mittster constitute the "Old White Man's Club". Average age almost 64 1/2.

You've got Huntsman, Mittster and Jindal with serious religion issues. 2 Mormons and a Convenience Christian. Let alone the fact that the GOP base will never elect a guy who looks like Jindal to national office.

So you've got Huckabee, Palin, Pawlenty. Scary. If I thought gopper base was rational I'd have to give Pawlenty the advantage. But since they're not I have no fucking idea what they'll do.

I saw a comment on one of those posts about what the righties are saying. They really want a dictatorship, thinking they're gonna be the dictators. One guy said "the left doesn't own guns" so they won't fight back. Heh. Try it, bub.

Twinky P* said...

BTW, a friend went and saw The Orphan and told me the trick ending - bwahahahaha! Don't bother - really.

snark said...

I just read the spoiler. That's really pretty lame. Saved a rental on that one. Thanks.

The Masked Vigilante said...

I don't know why I did this, since you guys said it sucked big time, but I watched The Day the Earth Stood Still over the weekend.


By the end of the movie, I wanted Keanu to wipe the earth clean, starting with Will Smith's kid.

Dug the tiny John Cleese role though.

Twinky P* said...

I haven't seen it, but I like Keanu, don't care who knows it. And I'm always rooting for the aliens to asplode the Earth. If they don't, what good is the flick? I'm there for entertainment, not reality.

snark said...

Worst movie ever. Not even the special effects could save it.

Seven of Six said...

Worst movie ever.

You haven't seen "GI Joe" yet. A lot of action... no doubt the worst dialogue of any movie I've ever seen. The actors could have improvised and done better. I've had nightmares of Dennis Qauid saying, "Go Joes!"

I sincerely think it will be Pawlenty/Kyl. Young, intelligent, handsome leader/hardcore neo-con V/P leader. Straight in your face, white christian, hardcore conservative line. Our worst nightmare. Won't win the election however... not enough diverse votes for them. They certainly will win the white, christian vote. It'll be closer than McCain.

Obama wins when he pulls the lever on Hillary as V/P., sends poor old Joe packing.

The bu$h name is ruined at least until another election. Perhaps forever if we can ever bring trials against his sorry ass!

Seven of Six said...

I'm really looking forward to the movie "District 9".

Twinky P* said...

Me, too, I just read the writeup, and I'm interested. Looks cool.

The Masked Vigilante said...

You haven't seen "GI Joe" yet.

Me neither. Don't think I'm gonna. Last movie I was at, the audience laughed at the GI Joe trailer.

Rolling Stone says:

I don't know what to say about the acting, writing and directing in G.I. Joe because I couldn't find any.

Ouch. Half a star. But he says it still wasn't as bad as Transformers 2.

I watched I Love You, Man last night. Funny! And such a great cast. Paul Rudd, Jason Segal, Jon Favreau, Andy Samburg, Jamie Pressly, Jane Curtin, JK Simmons, and so on.

Not as laugh-out-loud-hilarious as I had hoped, but well worth the rental.

Twinky P* said...

I like Paul Rudd, so I'll prolly get that next time I wanna watch something - well, after Fido anyhow. Just can't find the time for anything anymore...

The Masked Vigilante said...

World population to reach 7 billion in 2011.

People be fuckin'.

snark said...

We may need those death panels after all!

Speaking of death panels, why doesn't someone remake Logans Run?

Michael York could play the Peter Ustinov role!

Jeff said...

Hola. I have a heart full of hate and I'm way too sober. Call this Random Musings From The Lunatic Fringe.

Barbour, Newt, Huck, Rick Santorum, Jindal, the crazy hillbilly bitch from Alaska and Mitt are all in. Fo Sho.

Barack Obama is a pussy. I didn't vote for an American Public Relations Manager. Health care does not belong in the free market. That's it. Get rid of the insurance companies.

That said, I fear for the man's life. There is a sick undercurrent of conservative wackos running wild in this god-forsaken country that makes the underground militias of the '90's look like Romper Room.

Blue Dog Democrats are the problem? Bullshit. The Democratic Party is the Republican Party circa 1964. I'm not sure what you'd call the current GOP.

Insecure much, Hillary? We know you're the Sec. of St., though we don't know why. You. Must. Chill.

Keith Olbermann is a corporate shill for agreeing to that truce with Bill-O and then lying to his audience about it. Blow me, Keith.

When did Rachel Maddow become so goddamn smug?

Bill Maher needs to stop the anti-religion rants. We all hate organized religion and their meddling ways, but preaching about talking snakes and Jonah in the belly of a whale makes him seem like just another Falwell. Those nutjobs all fade, as the great news today of James Dobson's ministry being $6 mil in the hock shows. Stop sucking Richard Dawkins' dick and move on, already. It would be like me making fun of his vaporized pot, it does no one any good. Let it be.

John Hughes movies sucked. I remember being in high school watching his tales of the jock, the cheerleader, the geek, the stoners, the unfunny racism of Long Duck Dong, and thinking, isn't this what we all HATE about high school?? Nothing like an old guy making money off of teenagers' insecurities.

Michael Vick is a monster, but after NBC's giving his new tutor, or whatever the fuck he is, Tony Dungy, 20mins to argue that his client has served his penalty and in America we all deserve a 2nd chance, I realize that the one owner out there that's just batshit crazy enough to roll the dice at offending everyone in his team's community is Art Modell. Vick will be signed as a Baltimore Ravens' wideout/backup QB by the end of the month.

Green Day is not The Who.

Transformers 2 is the worst movie ever, but I hate When Harry Met Sally more for being such a Woody Allen rip.

That Disney chick from the High School Musicals must stop taking naked pictures of herself. They keep ending up on the internet and I keep having to try and explain it to my boys. She should just start sending them directly to me.

How dare The Dead charge $300+ for a ticket? Jerry is spinning in his grave.

Tony Romo over Tennessee in the Super Bowl, SoS.

Thank you and God Bless America.

snark said...

Ya had me til the Tony Romo BS. Dallas isn't going anywhere this year. They'll all be golfing by December.

Twinky P* said...

Hey Jeff! Love ya, man!

The Masked Vigilante said...

The First Family's Secret Service code names:

Barack: Renegade
Michelle: Renaissance
Malia: Radiance
Sasha: Rosebud

Um, do we want alliteration in our code names? Doesn't that make the radio chatter potentially mistakable? Isn't that why the military has their own word-based alphabet, when they say "Oscar Mike" for "on the move" and "Whiskey Tango" when they wanna call someone "white trash"? So it's clear?? (Source: Generation Kill)

If the fit hits the shan, nobody wants the Secret Service to think they heard "Renaissance" when they actually heard "Renegade", or vice versa.

And isn't it a little unfair to call one daughter "Radiance" and name the other after Charles Foster Kane's sled?

The Masked Vigilante said...

Of course, it IS a nice change of pace after the previous First Family code names: Chucklehead and Footstool, and the twin daughters: Hottie and Nottie.

Seven of Six said...

Tony Romo over Tennessee in the Super Bowl, SoS.

LOL!! When Romo wins a playoff game I'll believe it!

I paid $150 per ticket to see Clapton and Winwood... and would do it again... it was that good!

And Obama gets a bad rap because he is pragmatic. After the former little president on steriods.

Really, does anyone care if baseball players did steriods... especially when management knew about and it was filling the stands with spectators all those years?
Go Rockies!!

Yeah, I got some bitching in me as well... tomorrow I hope the Cardinals beat the Steelers... even if it is a pre-season game.

Hey, when you have the religious Dungy in your corner you've been absolved of all sins!

The wife thinks all girls who end up with naked pictures on the web have it carefully planned... especially the ones who protest the loudest... like ESPN's Erin Andrews.

The Masked Vigilante said...

There's a live album and concert DVD out.

Seven of Six said...

Damn, forgot to say Hi Jeff!

Raining here this morning... what a relief from the hot, dusty conditions of late.

Was reading that the crazy fucktard with a gun strapped to his side... originally from AZ... WTF is this state coming too?

Twinky P* said...

Apparently, the chinless asshole went to NH because AZ's gun laws were too restrictive! He was hoping to get all his scumbuddies to help take over NH and secede into their own armed paradise. Fuck this fucking country. Too stoopid to live.

Jeff said...

Hi everyone, I love you, too, Twinky or whatever you call yourself now. I've been away too long. I'd lick your cream filling anytime.

I love antagonizing the Romo-haters. We true EIU fans will be marching on a pile of bones by the end of the year.

I love that the Masked one ignored everything I said. Probably because I ripped on his beloved John Hughes and brought up religion. Yo, Bro, I have four words for ya: She's Having A Baby.

SoS, with Obama, going half-assed on the economy and health care is just as bad as not doing anything at all at this point. Subsidizing failing banks instead of nationalizing them? Bullshit. Outsourcing the responsibility of writing bills on climate change to CONGRESS? C'mon. That bill is being LAUGHED at all around the globe. I'm so tired of political feasibility. Fuck that. Just do it.

I talked to Peter Daou yesterday (wow...how's that for pompous name-dropping? I gross myself out) and he said Paul Krugman and realistic ecomomic advisors were saying we need $1.3 trillion. So the guy goes for $800 billion because the real number isn't politically feasible. Ugh.

As I'm typing this wankery right now, 4 or 5 people in this country are gonna die because they have no health insurance, something that every other civilized country in the world manages to provide for their people. It's gotta be a single-payer system, AT THE VERY LEAST a public option, where he's become a human Waffle House, or I'm gonna try and burn the guy's White Sox jacket, proclaims the Hillary supporter.

And why are we still in Afghanistan and Iraq?????

We're still holding detainees at Gitmo and holding military tribunals. What's THAT all about??

Still waiting for that investigation into Bush's approval of torture and the truth commission. It's Iran-Contra all over again. Thanks, Barack.

He talked all gay-friendly on the campaign trail, now he actually goes to court to support state bans on same-sex marriage.

We will apparantly not take on the coal industry. He gave away carbon-pollution permits, let India and China off the hook on reducing greenhouse emissions, and approved logging in a National Forest, can't remember which one. Read a recent article by RFK, Jr. about something called mountaintop-removal mining, I guess it's just destroying Appalachia, and Superman is letting it happen.

I'm starting to tire myself. Sorry. He just really pisses me off so far. Really I just want the Masked guy to get mad at me about John Hughes (two more words: Uncle Buck) and say hi to twinkie and Tony Romo goes all the way this year.

The Masked Vigilante said...

It isn't working. Sorry. Loved both of the movies you mentioned. There are a couple I'm not crazy about, but not everybody can be Billy Wilder.
