RNC: Early Impressions

After watching the Olympics, with its sculptured bodies and magnificent athletes in all their splendor, I’ve now turned my attention to the tube’s next spectacle – the Republican Convention – a.k.a. the meeting of our unconscious “patriots.” (Editors note: George Romero – if you’re still alive, here’s the script for your next flick).

In my first 3 minutes of viewing I observe this – a delegate is interviewed and is wearing a bandage on her chin with a Purple Heart drawn on it. A Senator is interviewed and thanks New York City for its warm and cordial reception. (Meanwhile 100,000 people – some say it was closer to 250,000 — marched in protest of this meeting of these self-proclaimed compassionate simpletons on Sunday and you better believe that the mood in the city is downright mean and that hate is in the air. Nobody’s brandishing guns, or throwing paint at anyone, or anything like that, but the vibe is not friendly, to say the least). In my first 30 minutes of viewing I’ve seen very few blacks, Hispanics, etc. – just overweight balding white men with jowls and their not too attractive spouses, with their 50’s hairdo’s and flower design house dresses covering their sagging bosoms and expanding rear ends. (Don’t these people ever look in the mirror, or exercise? Have they no taste, or style)?

There’s a certain smug arrogance in the air. Perhaps W’s little smirk
is now being emulated by these unconscious retard fans of his. (Yeah, I know … the word retard is discriminatory and has been replaced by “challenged” but there’s no other word in our vocabulary to describe these folks better than retard). Sorry. Screw being politically correct. I’m way past that. Sue me.

A friend sent me an email that quotes the late Democrat statesman, Adlai Stevenson. It goes like this, “if the Republicans stop telling lies about us we will stop telling the truth about them.”

This will be an interesting and revealing week for anyone with half a brain because our cretin friends will surely make fools of themselves at every turn. And they won’t have the slightest understanding of what someone like me is ridiculing, or questioning. And then, in typical fashion, they’ll lash out and call me an elite-ist pig — and all in the name of Jesus.

My Republican friend (who shall remain unnamed) calls Kerry a “sissy-boy” and Edwards a re-incarnation of Gomer Pyle. He calls all dissenters America-haters and commies.

    Maybe you would prefer it if the US gymnastic team were running the show.

    “…just overweight balding white men with jowls and their not too attractive spouses….”

    You’re an idiot.

    “… with their 50’s hairdo’s and flower design house dresses covering their sagging bosoms and expanding rear ends. (Don’t these people ever look in the mirror, or exercise? Have they no taste, or style)?”

    You’re an idiot.

    “Screw being politically correct. I’m way past that. Sue me.”

    Oooohh, you’re so provocative! How very daring of you to use the word “retard.” You rebel, you. You independent thinker, you.

    Really intriguing. Is this venom spewing piffle supposed to be masquerading as informed commentary? Or intelligent commentary? Or even entertaining commentary? You fail miserably on all three counts.

    Now, get back to the gym and work on those quads.

    Hilarious description, I love it. Unfortunately for us, the RNC is on tv, right after dinner, so we can’t watch it. We need our food to settle properly.

    But we do plan on getting recaps from Dean Esmay, talkleft, liberaloasis or Atrios. They’ll fill us in with the facts on the platform of the 50′s.

    Liberal Oasis offers a funny definition of what Bush defines as compassion. Apparently Bush defines compassion as ‘LOOK like your helping African Americans’.

    (I believe he’s referring to Bush’s page where he talks about helping the poor, and then throwing a picture of Bush chatting with two African Americans, right next to the ‘help people in need’ tagline within the image. Funny, they don’t look like they need help (nor do they look like they are getting it).

    Such a blatant message will definitely resonate among the ‘overweight balding white men with jowls and their not too attractive spouses, with their 50’s hairdo’s and flower design house dresses covering their sagging bosoms and expanding rear ends’, and they will clap resoundingly at the ‘progress’ being made, I’m sure.

    I haven’t seen a reliable study on the information but I wouldn’t be surprised if more mentally challenged people didn’t vote Democratic. Among felons, the poor and homeless, and pretty much anybody who needs a government handout Dems seem to fare very well. (Also among those people who can’t figure out how to properly complete a ballot)

    Of course I can understand your anger and insults as they are the result of you inability to field an effective argument on the issues. Out of the thousands of protesters in NYC I bet most could give me a good anti-Bush slogan or joke but I would challenge you to find more than 10 who actually know what the official Democratic platform is.
