"They Could Fuck Up A Wet Dream": The Foot-note Candidacies Of BHO and HRC

Anybody ever asks you what that means, point to the Democratic Presidential Nominating Campaign of 2008. It's textbook.

Consider:
  1. *With an opponent inextricably tied to and willingly aligned with the least popular, most detested, "Worst President Ever;"
  2. *with a populace united in opposition to an immoral, illegal "war;"
  3. *with an environmental crisis much of which is attributable to the inertia of the ruling elites;
  4. *with the economy bobbing around like a turd in a maelstrom, credit harder to find than chicken-teeth and harder to get than a Vestal Virgin;
  5. "with oil hovering around $100/bbl (until after Nov, when it will take off);
  6. *with food and transportation prices spiraling upwards and no end in sight;
  7. *with medical care costs growing while coverage for citizens declines along with their health;
  8. *with unemployment rising, corporate profits sky-rocketing, and wages stagnating,
that is, with ALL these pop/prog issues in play...

...the Dems offer not one but two "exotic" candidates (neither of whom is populist or progressive--much less "liberal"), either of whom will inevitably divide both the party and the Country, and both of whom can make it close enough for the GOPukes to steal in November, if they so desire.

The competitive Clinton/Obama race in the Dim primaries is a god-send for the elites. It provides cover, for one thing. If either is 'elected,' it will be taken--by the relentlessly naive, at least--as 'evidence' that the elites are powerless to control the outcome of the 'election.'

Of course, due to the acrimony, anger, and angst stimulated by the simultaneous candidacies of not one but two candidates who are avatars of different, traditionally marginalized, often despised social groups: women and racial minorities. Both groups are therefore (and understandably) voraciously hungry for the legitimacy winning the Presidency would provide.

Yet I suspect that either an BHO or a HRC presidency will be almost as great a triumph for the long-term interests of the oligarchy as nuevo-Bush McStain would be.

That is because the array of government and social institutions "mierdas-touched" by the Bushies is so stunningly complete, to total, so thorough, the shit-splashing so comprehensive, that there is NO FUUKIN way any mere mortal human will be able to clean it all up. This bed cannot be unshit. The fecal matter is everywhere, and crusted hard by the years of neglect.

Because, of course, either HRC or BHO will have been 'elected'--if they are--on the PROMISE of "change," and with an ostensible 'mandate' to repair all that damage. Which, unfortunately, is a promise they will be--utterly, tragically, inevitably, predictably--unable to fulfill. This will have the (for the Right) desirable consequences, thereby, of (1) exascerbating the alienation of the desperate, fearful electorate from the process, and meantime (2) lodging a black-mark against the aspirations of any future 'exotic' candidate. Can you NOT just hear Big Babs Bush opining on the inability of 'those people' to govern? I can...

The other option available to the elites, of course, is to simply cut to the chase, use the usual chicanery of vote rigging, electronic malfeasance, and other dirty tricks, to install McStain/(Huckleberry or Ghouliani or Romney), to seal (and steal) the 'election,' and proceed with the 'bidness as usual' of the last 7 (by then 8) years, of relieving the country of all its disposable income, destroying the infrastructure of democratic republicanism, spreading world-wide terror, and enervating such of the people who yet possess a conscience to their serial, and increasingly criminal abuses...

McStain's already on record believing 'the jobs ain't coming back, the immigrants ain't going home, and there's gonna be a lot more wars.' So he's the perfect agent of this program. Bush has lowered expectations so far, almost anything will be regarded as an improvement, even if it is more of the same in a slightly different wrapper.

If the Dims had PLANNED to hand the country over to the Oiligarchs & Pollutocrats, they wouldn't have done ANYTHING different this year.

In that case, if we are ruled by our masters from birth to death, why even bother doing ANYTHING?

I'll tell you why! Cuz dying fighting is better than meekly lining up for slaughter. There is always the consolation that I'll take more than one of the fucktards with me. Where me an Woody was raised we don't give up with out a fight. You may argue
"dead is dead" and that's true but style counts for everything. The problem with the liberal wing of society is it has become too unwilling to scratch, claw and main and kill. Oh, we bitch real good, but we don't get down bitch slap, a skill our GOP counterparts excell at in kindergarten. And speaking of dirty tricks, it's started again at the state department. This time, though, CREEP, call it what you will, burgled their own office as well, to cast suspicion away from themselves.

Tell ya what, when the next Revolutionary Army looks for conscripts, you can give' em my name, okay?

Don't talk about maiming and killing unless you are 100% prepared to do it, and I don't mean figuratively either.
