The Free Wheelin' Conflict Theorist
Thuggin' Love at it's most touching
I just read Cliff's latest post and, not unusually, was inspired to freestyle once again.
First - and this is an addendum to an argument that I left over at Cliff's Crib - Sarah Palin is NOT being picked on by the media. Katie Couric is not Alfred H. Lewis. Let's get a grip. For example, I live in Texas. The Dallas Morning News. See? I managed to come up with the name of my local newspaper rather easily, and did it without the aide of Google. Also, and not for nothing, but I'm only an HR professional and I know what the Bush Doctrine is. Anyone with more than a passing interest in the actions of this crooked-assed president and his daddy should be familiar with it. It's simple shit, people. Here's what it boils down to: Sarah Palin simply doesn't know what the hell she's talking about. She's not qualified to be a candidate for Vice President and I wish people would stop acting as if she's splitting atoms just because she doesn't completely disintegrate when the cameras are turned on her. It's officially become irritating. She's fighting above her intellectual weight class and everyone knows it. The very next time a hypocritical right-winger attacks affirmative action, white women (who have benefited from it, and continue to do so infinitely more than blacks) had better circle the God damned wagons.
Hillary Clinton is going to vote for John McCain. She's got her angry white female loyalists printing up HILLARY 2012 bumper stickers as I type this. Which brings me to another observation. The ONLY mistake that Obama has made during his improbable campaign is failing to close the gap between himself and the Clintons - who still have considerable political pull, and anger over having been whipped by a Negro neophyte. Obama should have been able to strike some sort of back room, under the table deal with the Clinton cadre to sew up their loyalties, at least for the current election cycle. His failure to do so may very well cost him the election.
We Americans love deluding ourselves. One such delusion is that Osama Bin Laden is currently running around like a trapped rat living in a cave. He is not. As sure as John McCain's wife is a drug addict, that murderous fanatic is living in a dwelling that makes your house look like that shack in Wasilla from which Sarah Palin use to "govern." It comforts us to believe that our great modern day walking evil is running around, eating only herbs and berries, and eeking out a hunted existence like the family in The Land of the Lost. It makes us feel that he's less of a threat and that our complete and utter failure to capture him isn't all that bad. It ain't so, folks. Bin Laden isn't living like a Flintstone, and he had an iPhone 3G before you did.
And finally, I need to know why so many of you seem to love Lil' Wayne so much. Why do you continue to prop him up so? What is so fascinating about him? Have you actually heard his voice? Or seen him? Or listened to his *sigh* music? What's wrong with you people? Some days ago, I was watching VH1's 100 Greatest Hip Hop Songs special. According to some unfathomable combination of VH1 producers and hip hop listeners, the Doug E. Fresh/Slick Rick classic, "The Show," was #51. Number 51. That's at least in the top 20 my fellow Americans. "So," I thought to myself, "surely the the top 50 must be masterpieces." Of course, that hope was dashed when #50 was announced: "The Block is Hot" by the afore mentioned cockroach, Lil' Wayne. Since I can't blame myself for this travesty, that only leaves you. You may apologize if it suits you but I assure you that it will not be accepted.
