Which GOP Presidential wannabe is the Holiest Man of God? Which will replace
the bully pulpit with a clerical pulpit the fastest? According to Camp Mittens,
it would require "an act of GOD" for Romney to lose the nomination at this
NBC News reports:
"Mitt Romney's campaign gathered the national press corps in their
campaign war room this morning to deliver a simple message: It would take an
'act of God' for any candidate not named Mitt Romney to win the Republican
"The Boston-based campaign projected confidence in Romney's ability to win
the nomination given the emerging delegate math in the campaign following last
night's Super Tuesday contests.
"'We will get to 1,144 whether it's on someone else's timeline, or on our
timeline,' said one top Romney aide. 'We will get to 1,144 and be the Republican
Overhearing this, Camp Ricky broke out the rosaries, icons, and holy water
and prayed for just such a miracle.
Did you hear about the controversial Canadian study that claims there is a correlation
between those who espouse conservative beliefs and low IQ? No, it's not the
first line of a rather highbrow joke, it's an actual longitudinal study that
concludes that people with less intelligence are drawn to the conservative
messages because they make them feel safe.
The study, published in Psychological Science, says...
"Right-wingers tend to be less intelligent than left-wingers, and
people with low childhood intelligence tend to grow up to have racist and
anti-gay views, says a controversial new study. Conservative politics work
almost as a 'gateway' into prejudice against others, say the Canadian academics.
The study, by academics at Brock University in Ontario, Canada, used information
from two UK studies from 1958 and 1970, where several thousand children were
assessed for intelligence at age 10 and 11, and then asked political questions
at age 33. The paper analyzed large UK studies which compared childhood
intelligence with political views in adulthood across more than 15,000 people.
The authors claim that people with low intelligence gravitate towards right-wing
views because they make them feel safe."
Goes a long was to explain the phenomena of George W Bush, proud "C"
student-cum-President, doesn't it? Or why Rick Santorum can address his throng
of followers and call President Obama a "snob" for urging young people to attend
college. They know the base. In Dim Son's case, they are the base.
While the corporate media is focusing on the pointless
Presidential posturing of the GOP candidates, trying to predict which will be "The Man Who Loses to Obama" in November, there is precious little attention being
paid to the legacy of the former disastrous Republican president, George W Bush,
and the havoc he wreaked in the Mideast. As a result of the Madness of King
George, the Orwellian "Bush Doctrine" of striking before we are struck back
against nations who did nothing to us, the bloody conflicts he started in
Afghanistan and Iraq are now spreading across the region, with Syria and Iran
now in the cross-hairs of the US war machine.
As we wind down in Iraq and Afghanistan with no victory, no resolution, no
outcome other than mass destruction, mass death of our troops, innocent Muslim
citizens, thousands of wounded maimed and mangled, the US economy ravaged for
defense spending -- here we are. We are bankrupt morally, economically, and
spiritually and our leaders [sic] are considering another venture -- or two --
into the Mideast killing machine.
We know where the two GOP front-runners stand on peeking under our skirts
with their probes and denying women the right to personal medical decisions, but
where are they on furthering the Bush/Cheney terror wars? What is their end
game? Isn't that subject at least as important as the subject of controlling
female reproduction and inflicting psychological torment on women seeking
Does the potential death of thousands more innocent Muslims -- thousands more
US troops -- merit the same attention as the question of whether or not
insurance companies should cover female hormonal medications? Or whether or not
a pregnant woman should be forced to endure an invasive vaginal ultrasound
before being "allowed" to terminate her pregnancy?
Wouldn't you like to know where these candidates stand on real issues of life
and death? Are they with that segment of their ultra-right constituents that
believes it's okay to kill innocent Muslim children in other countries (in the
name of "liberating" them, literally to death) -- but not okay to abort an
American fetus? Don't we deserve to have those questions answered as well?
