Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Erm, No

What the...

Two things.

Yahoo has a story up: Dolly Parton Wows At 66.  And the NY Times leads with Romney Wins Republican Primary.

OK.  Both I guess are true, if you don't take into account the artificial distortions, the manic desire to slice off flesh to make yourself perpetually appealing and the grotesque mask of human facsimile that is left.

And then there's Dolly Parton.

Mitt may yet crack the 40% barrier, but if Nate Silver is right, Mitt will only have gotten about the same number of votes as 2008.  GOP turnout is DOWN from 2008.  How can that be?  Could it possibly be that Republicans look at their slate and say, "Screw it, what's on Spike tonight?"

Maybe Santorum won Iowa.  I bet he did.  So what.  Mitt won New Hampshire.  So what.

I'm waiting for South Carolina and Florida.  Screw these small lily white states.  I want a state with some meat on its bones.  I want a state a-scared of black and brown people.  I want a state that is progressively losing its teeth.  Bring on the rednecks and the blue hairs!

More than anything, let Newt be Newt.  Let the master slide the shiv in.

Don't empty the clown car just yet.
