Even Stupor Pacs and Billionaires' Bucks Can't Buy Mudslinger Mitt any Love on Stupor Tuesday

Poor Moneybags Mitt, seems no matter how much mud he slings at his rightwing rivals a large majority of the Republican base just aren't sufficiently hypnotized by what he's selling. For instance, Moneybags Mitt and his Stuopr Pac, Restore Our Future [yuck], spent over $12million slinging mud in Ohio alone compared to Righteous Rick's measley $1million. Yet Mitt won by less than 1% of the vote. Poor Mitt, even the reddest of rednecks, the bluest of bluecollars, bornest of born agains or the whitest of whites just aren't buying what he's got for sale.

Robert Reich said of the Republicans the other day, " A party of birthers, creationists, theocrats, climate-change deniers, nativists, gay-bashers, anti-abortionists, media paranoids, anti-intellectuals, and out-of-touch country clubbers cannot govern America." Maybe, maybe not, in this writers opinion. They certainly can't win in an old fashion head to head gunfight at the OK corral kinda showdown, at least not yet. But they have been pulling the strings that make the puppets dance for years now through the dark force of fear.

What America needs, and by extension the whole world needs, is a 'High Noon' kinda showdown. We need a clear choice, we need Gary Cooper to stand up intellectually in the dusty street and call bullshit on these ultra rightwing fear mongerers. We don't need 500 national ho-hum non-choices between RINOs and DINOs, between various flip-floppers where everybody chooses the candidate that makes them puke the least.

If this electoral silly season doesn't produce a clear cut defeat of the religious rightwing robots there might not be another chance. The best case scenerio, IMO, would be if Newt got the boot letting Rick do the trick of cutting Mitt to shit. Then maybe the fork-tongued Obama might end up with a real Democratic majority in both houses of Congress, not a DINO filled mock majority like the one he and 'Rahm thre Fixer' built 4 years ago. If all this were to come true, as my inner soothsayer assures me, if the religio-fascists were slain in the political dust of Main Street, if then Obama was forced by a progressive majority to actually fulfill his promises of 4 years ago we might still see America rise to its potential as that golden city on the hill.
