Donald Trump, Carly Fiorina, the Republican Presidential Debate, and Other Words That Will Make You Read This

Well there it was ladies and germs, the three hour slog that was the CNN presidential debate.  I was right, as usual, that it was going to be the limp-wristed, clammy handed attempt by the GOP Establishment and The Clown Show media to discredit and dishonor anyone running who is not their pay-for-play escort. Speaking of paying to play, it looks like the R.N.C. headed by Reince Priebus ( whose name sounds like an alternate title for Deputy Furher), made a sweet deal with CNN where the network could rake in the dough and simultaneously keep tight-fisted control over the content we are allowed to hear and rebroadcast. What a deal! The 5th Column/modern-day Pravda can become ever richer off of manipulating all of us poor saps like Jeff Dunham manipulates Jose the Jalapeno. And no, Jorge Ramos, I’m not talking about Illegals……but if you could hear me say your name I would indeed add the Latino Pronunciacion with mucho sarcasmo.

I’ll be brief, as I’m sure everyone would like to get back to reading about how just absolutely awesome Carly Fiorina was at the debate last night. How she just stuck it to that mean old Donald Trump……who made fun of her apppeawance (implied waaaahhhhhh). I love it when people tell me how much they are above gender politics, as a woman, then make everything you say for a week relate to how you’re a woman. I’m sure I’ve never heard someone make fun of The Donald’s hairdon’t, or Chris Chrispie-Kreme’s waistline, or Rand ” give him a box to stand on” Paul’s height. Besides, the growing caliphate invading Europe has such a deep and healthy respect for “the ladies” and how upset they get about being mildly insulted.  I’m not saying she crashed and burned or anything…..but it shows the Establishment and their Lobbyist Masters’ desperation to look at Fox News and Redstate and see the hundred or so articles screaming at us rubes that, Carly won! Carly won!  We get it…..you’ve found your new Scott Walker….uhh, I mean John Kasich…..uhh wait….we’re almost out of Jeb Bush replacements, damn it!

I actually think that much of the reason that Fiorina is rising is due to the new narrative that she is somehow a political outsider, when in fact she was a big time adviser for John McCain and his McShameful attempt at being president in 2008, in addition to running a smear-filled campaign for senate in 2010 and losing to Barbara Boxer. Unfortunately her political record is filled with just as much success as her business one ( HP stock went up almost seven percent when she was canned ). That’s not what Charlie Sheen would have once called WINNING!

My main point is this…… I’m not saying we shouldn’t have debates. But I AM SAYING that there doesn’t need to be a clown car’s worth of candidates vying for time and attention. We are at a point where guys (sorry Carly, didn’t mean to offend) like Christie, Jindal, Graham, Paul, and…….. oh screw it – I can’t even remember the rest of the thousand people the GOP has running to throw jabs at Trump – guys like them need to go home. Even Rick Perry decided to turn it in when he realized that once again he would actually have to talk without a piece of paper or a teleprompter in front of his face, full of lines written by other people. I say take a poll, put the top 6 on a stage, pull names out of a phone book from “flyover country” to be moderators, and broadcast without cost and commercial interruption to We The People……since we are the ones who have to live with the consequences. I know Rupert Murdoch wants to give El Jebe’ nine swings of the bat to at least make contact with the ball, but another Bush just ain’t gonna happen…..no matter how many times he rubs the Pope and makes a wish.

The questions need to be serious….like, what’s your plan for say…. the Iran debacle, Illegal Immigration, trillions and trillions of debt, a crumbling infrastructure, impending conflict with China and Russia, racial riots and volatility, bottom ranking schools, corporate cronyism, lobbyist control of government, welfare, and maybe a couple of other things that are threatening to sink us like an the iceberg the size of Australia. But hey, what do I know….I’m only supposed to be watching the commercials and buying stuff.

Oh No…… It’s Mr. Bill Oh’ Really!

Aside

  There’s a troubling trend I’ve been noticing in the last few days. Well… to be honest, it’s not new, and not that many are troubled by it. Maybe that’s what I find so irritating. I just watched a clip of “King Loofa”, otherwise known as Bill O’Reilly, once again pontificating on television while slathered in what looks like oompa-loompah make up.  His grand, arrogant oration to a member of the opposition to nationalized healthcare made me want to spit out my Kroger-brand coffee. 

  His (paraphrased)  point was this: ” Hey, you guys know you’re not going to win this de-fund Obamacare thing…. you know it’s a fight you can’t win…. so why are you fighting it? What’s wrong with you guys? You must be stupid or crazy or both.” Well why don’t we change Bill’s name to Bill Oh Really? I thought this nation was founded on the very notion that some fights are worth fighting. Even when it’s against all odds, even when everyone says it can’t be done. Defeat the most powerful empire on earth? Nah.. Create a republic of free men and women that takes the power from an Aristocracy and gives it to ordinary folks? Nah…. Impossible. So why try? 

  It brings to mind just a few examples of people who spit in the face of Bill Oh Really’s “wisdom”.  I’ve already mentioned the founding of our country, so let’s start there. Do you think that George Washington had confidence in his ability to defeat the armies of the British Crown?  Well I don’t think he did. In fact, if not for the outcome achieved, and with the exception of the Battle of Trenton, Washington kinda sucked at winning any engagement with the British.  His crowning achievement was probably not getting shot right out of his saddle every time he lined the Colonials up for the slaughter.  To me it seems that it surely must have been Providence that we came out on top of the struggle for Independence.

  Let’s make a stab at another individual that made the impossible possible.  Take a look around you wherever you are right now.  Are the lights on? Can you read at night without dripping wax all over you? Let’s forget the whole flourescent bulb fiasco for a second, as that’s the subject for another day.  Electric light has changed the world in a way that almost nothing else has.  Mankind finally did what was thought to be a pipe dream. Bring light to darkness, safety to lurking danger, with the flip of a switch.  Thomas Edison tried hundreds of time to invent the lightbulb. and I’m sure the Oh Really’s of the world told him, “hey, it’s not going to work, it’s a fight you can’t win…. so cut it out already will you?”.  Well I’m glad the Sultan of Shower Scrubbers wasn’t there to, pardon the pun, illuminate him on the futility of his endeavor. 

And finally, I wonder what Mr. Bill would say to Martin Luther King jr. and other civil rights activists of the sixties? Surely they were also told, “Hey…. what you’re doing is impossible. You’re just making a stink for something that you know will never happen.” I guess he’d line up with guys like Democrat Senator Strom Thurmond or Klan member Senator Robert Byrd, Democrat from West Virginia, who personally stood at the podium for over 14 hours to try to block the Civil Rights Act. Or guys like George Wallace, and yes he’s another Democrat , who stood in multiple schoolhouse doors to block innocent children from going to school.

I was under the impression that I was fortunately born somewhere where the impossible is made possible. I thought this was the Nation of Underdogs. I thought this was perhaps the only place on the face of the earth where if you could dream it, you could do it. Because sometimes you fight because it’s the right thing to do, no matter the odds, no matter the cost. History is made by men and women who looked poo-pooers like Bill O’ Reilly in the face and said, “Impossible, huh? We’ll see about that.”
