I want to rock and roll all night, and party every day

I have often marveled at the unholy coalition that has made up the post-1980 Republican party. You have the oddest combination of mouth-breathing yahoos who want Jesus to stop boys from kissing voting to support the agendas of CEOs and hedge fund managers who would not allow their "base" within high-powered rifle range of their gated compounds. The GOP leaders, whose kids don't care about "school choice" because their kids went to Andover, who didn't worry about guns because they had private security and had Skull and Bones friends who could take care of their daughters' reproductive "inconveniences," would happily throw chunks of red meat to the trailer dwellers on social issues because it cost them nothing, and the "base" would happily vote against their own self-interests. It was indeed a very curious thing.

I am wondering, though, if this 2008 campaign might put a stake in that monster's heart. We have the perfect storm of the Wall Street meltdown and bailout dividing the base from the financial and corporate community, while Sarah Palin and her genetic mutation rallies shows the GOP establishment that the yahoos are REALLY dangerous (memo to those who count on the support of mouthbreathers--DO NOT stage events where the mouthbreathers are on TV!)

Might this be the end of the unholy GOP alliance?

Don't count on it.

If Obama doesn't fix Wall St., "win" Iraq, capture bin Laden and bring gas back to under $1.00/gal within the first 100 days they'll start blaming him for all of it.

I can hear Rush now:
"By now McCain would have done all that AND had my shit smelling like roses. Hell, even Palin could have fix the economy and bagged her second moose by Easter!"

Rush Limbaugh would complain if Obama came over every day and gave him Oxycontin injections while a team of whatever deformed freaks Limbaugh finds sexually attractive serviced him for hours and told him that he's the greatest man ever.

I am not really all that worried about the right-wing-shills (i.e. Rush). That listenership doesn't support Obama anyway...

Helloooo, females present. All this talk of Rush is making me want to hurl. The only 'servicing' I want to think about is on my car - but I guess since my car and Rush are the same size and rigid shape, covered with hard cold metal and spewing forth combustible gases from a multitude of holes, we'll I guess they are close to the same. Never mind.

No intent to offend, lula. Unfortunately, once that disgusting piece of semi-human filth enters my brain, it goes strange and disturbing places.

Not offended, only extremely amused.
