And If You Don’t Believe Me, Just Ask Maxi-Me!

     
Just-announced Republican Presidential candidate (and Glenn Greenwald favorite) Gary Johnson provided so much distraction with his freshness and his Xtremely sporty adrenaline addiction and his Mubaresque humongous visage behind him (but did his 50-foot face poster include Greek columns, the goldline standard for egoism? No, not like that upp—you know, that zero in the WH), that it was possible to overlook the part of his speech where he indicates that his platform includes a senior bungee jump:

Johnson said he would bring spending down by raising the retirement age and making other changes to Social Security and reducing spending on defense, Medicare and Medicaid by 43 percent each. The latter two programs would become block grants controlled by the states, he said.

“That would be 50 laboratories of innovation,” he said.

“50 laboratories of innovation” being Gliberpublican for “WTF do I know or care how to fix it? Here’s less money than you need, now go make some good-lookin’ magic!”

Because it is excellent optics to refer to senior citizens’ vital support networks as “laboratories,” and the opposition would never take the opportunity to thunder, “Are our senior citizens lab rats?”

But let us pause just for a minute and try to keep a straight face as we honor the former two-term Governor (that’s a full four Palin-terms!) for his intention to chop the defense budget. He lives so close to Texas, and yet he still says this sort of thing out loud—the man loves excitement (including Newtonian-style, but since he is a Rand-hole, it’s right in keeping)!

How interesting it would be to have this thrill-seeking crag-crawler in the Oval Office instead of the cautious, contemplative No Drama Obama, who sees complication where Gov. No sees a swell chance to take a flying leap into the untested void.

Or rather, have us take a flying leap into the untested void. Unfortunately, there’s no way to just have the Governor take a flying leap first.

No, just the regular, sewer-swimming kind.

I, for one, am tired of this whole glibertarian meme that the 50 states are somehow better at deciding what’s best for citizens of the UNITED states of America who happen - by whatever chance - to have been born in their particular backwater paradise. There are a handful of states who seem to know WTF they are doing. The rest of those “laboratories of innovation” are innovating meth.

“That would be 50 laboratories of innovation,” he said.

Talk like this will get him a free abduction and tour of the alien granny mother ship. For a little lab work performed on his stoopid ass.

We have those come visit us now and then, out here in the Land of Enchantment

Why would a man his age with a perfectly good head of hair get it cut to look like a bad toupee?  It forces me to question his judgment.

@ Mrs. Polly ~ this Johnson fella has zero chance of winning the wingnut presidential primary, right? If so, why are we wasting space on him?

At what point does Greenwald’s ideological purity w/r/t disclosure make him start churning out 100,000-word WHAR BIRF CERTIFICT WHAR dumps over at Salon?

He meant lavatories. The states could come up with 50 different ways to crap on the elderly.

This prospect ... stimulates Gary’s Johnson.

that’s a full four Palin-terms!

Ha! A fitting replacement for the Friedman Unit.

I’ve always wondered which “left” critic of Obama would “pull a Hitchens”, maybe it’ll be Glenzilla.

1. To goose GG. Fun! Deserved!....Fun!
2.What if
not so? We are talking wingnuts here.
3.This is a blog called Rumproast. Our very name is a waste of space.

But, but 4:20 dudes!  Surely you don’t like you’re grandparents *that* much!

Well, okay, then. Carry on, Mrs. Polly with mocking GG.

He’s already starting, although at a place in Obama’s bio that I never knew was under suspicion until now:

Moreover, as a self-proclaimed Constitutional Law professor, he ought to have an instinctive aversion when speaking as a public official to assuming someone’s guilt who has been convicted of nothing.

Did anyone actually WITNESS him teaching Constitutional Law? And is this University of Chicago a real school or something like Trump University? Huh? Huh?

at a place in Obama’s bio that I never knew was under suspicion until now

Obama wasn’t really a professor” has been a staple of wingnut bloviation for a while now, though it is uncommonly used. That Greenwald is pulling it out now suggests that his transformation is progressing more rapidly than we thought.

NO mercy earned nor granted the lying weasel that is Glenn Greenwald. And anyone who supports the fool is a fool, and no loyal democrat. period. case close and sealed . We are in what amounts to a political civil war with the right wing, and GG gives aid and comfort to those malevolent cretins whenever he can.

That giant poster looks to be worthy of Leni Riefenstahl.

As a self-proclaimed writer, G-string should have fired a staple gun at his nads rather than unleash that phrase on the public.

I’m confused. Wouldn’t the fact the PotUS was once a professor be grist for the SoshulustElitistMarxist mill?

That giant poster looks to be worthy of Leni Riefenstahl.

Mr. Whipple FTW!

Just another acid test:  Do you believe Gary Johnson to be a credible presidential candidate?  Oh, you do?  Fuck off, then.

Someone needs to tweet Mr. Whipple’s comment to Glenzilla. Hee!

Oh look, the Greenwald Defamation League are back on patrol on BJ.

Why do I keep going back there again? I don’t think slogging through crap is worth the odd Tom Levenson post.

Paula, I found a nice little blog, along with this one of course, that you just might like if you haven’t heard of it already. Called The Peoples View. Here is a link to the first post I commented on yesterday, done on The Professional Left. And of course you can also check my blog out. Adoring Crowd. linked to my handle.

Good stuff, Stuck, but I don’t know why you (or rootless) bother. I’ve thought most of these people incoherent for years, but I’ve wasted too much breath arguing with them. But now they’ve swarmed most places to the point where you can’t Invoke the Holy Name of Greenwald without genuflecting.

Except here, of course.

Careful, Paula, if you say His name too many times, we’ll be visited by one brave keyboard warrior bmull, whose mission in life is to patrol the internets searching for people taking His name in vain, or talking smack about Saint Jane of LiarBlogFake.
