Celebrity FlimFlammer!

I swear I thought he'd be gone by now. He'd be hosting that mildly amusing reality show again, blaming the mainstream everything for his demise, being the martyr, saying how he would have won the presidency easy, all 50 states, going back to just being a dick to poor people.
But he's still here/. And he's fucking winning!

I don't care for Republican politics. It's selfish, mean spirited, tin eared, very white, and geared to protecting the powerful while conning the lessers with side dishes like religion and guns and abortion and other nonsensical bullshit the powers that be don't really give a shit about. But it was always that inner, hidden, quiet white supremacy wing that really bugged me. The ones that support the police and the military regardless of who they murder kill in the line of duty. The ones who decry "welfare" and "foreign aid" and "food stamps" while grabbing as much free shit as they can. The ones who want to lock em up and throw away the key on every dark skinned hoodie wearing mugshot they see on their local scary news while ignoring the thieves in suits and ties running the economy from the computer screens of Wall Street. One for you, 5 for me, one for you, five for me oh fuck you all 6 for me. Those people were always what 10%, 20% of Republican voters? They never got what they wanted. Their candidates could win Iowa and some dumbass gerrymandered congressional district somewhere in rural America. But they never actually had any power. The right wing talk radio would fuel them up and then, after they lost, they'd go back to what they do best. Bitching and moaning and kicking down the barn doors because then they don't have to do a damn thing.

But it was only what 20%, 25% ok maybe 30%.

Chrissakes I gave them too much credit. The Republicans that is. I had no idea these kooks were out there in such great numbers. These people who hear something from Uncle Bill who heard it from some guy at the tavern who heard it on TV. No I swear. It's true and goddamit nobody can convince me otherwise not even with your facts and video proof. Those are all doctored......No no Obama is a Muslim, he was born in Kenya I heard it on TV and saw it on the internet. You're all liars lah lah lah lah stop lying liberal media.

That reality TV star is winning. This guy, this straw haired Harold Hill, has no idea what he's doing. The ego maniacal rantings of a guy who took the task of running for President as a lark and a self promoting mission, suddenly has a big lead and like the dog who caught the car, he doesn't know what the fuck to do next. So he doubles down on everything. Lies about Muslims, more lies about Muslims, lies about Mexicans, lies about blacks, lies about women, lies about the gays. All designed to get him the fuck out of the race. But it doesn't work. The bigot factor, the racist factor, the factor that Max's Dad always believed was so minuscule it didn't matter is growing. WTF is going on?

The country elected a black guy in 2008 because well, the demographics were there, the other side had an old man and a crazy woman running and Obama was in the right place at the right time. And then he won again in 2012. Bigger. Again, the demographics were there and the other side ran a plutocrat and Eddie Munster.

And the country lost its fucking mind. The old white people threw a fucking temper tantrum in 2010 and because in off year elections the demographics revert back to America 1955 and sent these Tea Party whackdoodles into office where they went on and on about debt and their children and grandchildren's future when anybody with a room temperature IQ knew it was all about them. About their panicky thoughts that the blacks and the mexicans and the queers and the loudmouthed ladies were taking over. Their deep down racism and sexism and homophobia blew the tops off their heads. Now its game on.

The reality show guy is their man. He "tells it like it is". And the reality show guy just keeps telling it like it is. To them. The ones so goddamned ignorant and clueless, they believe whatever they hear on Rush or Levin or see on Fox News or read on Breitbart. And anybody who tells em different lies and covers up the "truth".

I used to believe very strongly in "Godwin's Law". Ya know, the one that says eventually any political argument will end up with a Nazi comparison and whoever throws the Hitler card out first loses? I believed that a Hitler or Nazi comparison was used to justify virtually every stupid fucking murderous war this nation embarks on. So I didn't use it.

But for gawdsakes, after watching the Yer Fired guy whip those South Carolina rednecks into a Islam hating frenzy and seeing a CNN panel of 29 Trump "supporters" say things about the sitting President like Fred Lanzillo, a 59 year old (sigh) Marine did:

"When you bend down to the Saudis, take your shoes off, put your hand on a Koran and then the Bible when you're sworn in?" He took his flag pin off. I'm a Marine and former deputy sheriff. He took that off, he was in the toilet to me. I would not only not piss on him if he was on fire—I'd throw gas on him."

I mean after 26 of the 29 raised their hands to believe a lie that Obama is actually a Muslim and nobody can tell em any different, what else is there to say?

Sieg He..........nah not ready quite yet.......
