Because Black People are Fungible Tokens
While Democrats waste time talking about whether Weiner should resign or go to “Asshat Rehab” or whatthecrapever, there’s a giant misogynist/sexual predator/asshat sitting on the Supreme Court, having a good laugh at the Democrats’ utter stupidity, while his Teabilly wife cackles with glee and collects another Heritage Foundation paycheck.
With every passing day that that Democrats ignore Clarence Thomas’s conflict of interest in favor of yet another round of handwringing over some dude’s penis, the more difficult it becomes for me to view the political landscape as anything but a farce.
And what better example of this political theater of the absurd than a mock debate between Libertarian wet dream, Gary Johnson, and a Barack Obama look-alike? Because debating a guy who “looks” like Obama is an accurate measure of what it would be like to debate the real “Obama.” You know — because we’re all the same:
Yet more evidence of the embarrassment that is Fox News.
I mean, for fuck’s sake: Fox News used a photo of Tina Fey instead of a photo of Sarah Palin while a Fox News “reporter” blathered on about Sarah Palin, who is fifty percent maybe going to run for president –
but 100 percent definitely going to grift your ass while she makes up her mind.
This is your political landscape: No better than a poorly-scripted episode of Saturday Night Live.
