Pay No Attention to the Mouthbreathing Rightwad Behind the Curtain
If you read “liberal” news sites, you’ve already known for the past year about the sickfuck twisted devious methods of Republican strategists. But then, if you go to those sites, you’re probably a liberal anyway — aka “preaching to the choir.”
But now — finally! — the mainstream media is actually waking up. For this brief moment, the general public is finding out what the rest of us have known all along.
You already knew that Republicans eat their young. The GOP is nothing but a gang of slippery lowlifes who will do anything — whatever it takes! — to keep their corporate masters propped up. And now John Q. Public knows it too.
Even with the public’s notoriously short attention span — Hey! Quit Looking Around! — this might be a case of not being able to put the toothpaste back into the tube (as one of the Watergate conspirators put it).
After all, when you find out how a magician does his tricks, you’re no longer gonna go “Wow! He pulled a rabbit out of his hat!” Hopefully some of the independent/swing voters will consider the source when they hear the next outburst of “Socialism!” “Government Takeover!” “Muslim!” “Born in Kenya!” And just maybe, some of the top GOP donors will be a little less “giving” after seeing themselves described as “ego-driven” and “easily pacified with tchochkes.”
Rolling Stone is another vehicle for reaching millions of people who probably don’t read DailyKos, AlterNet, Think Progress, etc. Matt Taibbi’s articles and exposés have been a Godsend. And the newest Rolling Stone has The GOP’s Dirty War by Tim Dickinson. Come on people, get informed.
And now, calling all elderly Dinosaurs: Ron Banks, lead singer of the Dramatics, died of a heart attack yesterday. The only song I remember from them was “What You See Is What You Get.” That song just killed. It was one of the few radio hits that I never ever got tired of, no matter how many times it got played.
