For Medved to bitch about negative attack campaigning (i.e., showing Romney for what he is) when the Prez has been vilified & demonized w/ the fantasies & delusions of a paranoid right-wing is just another peak reached in his attempt to climb all the mountains of hypocrisy.
The president didn’t win with a ‘magnificent’ get-out-the-vote operation. It was his relentless negative ads that discouraged and disillusioned the Republican and independent voters Romney needed, says Michael Medved.
Upon reaching this summit, M.M. turns on his projector & lets Karl Rove shine his light through:
To which we can only bold that one admission of straight-up protection/reaction & add: So? (Under our breath we muttered, "Fuck both of you gasbags.")
The most creative (& revealing) take on the GOP blast fax that generated all this (Seriously. Where did it come from?) has to be Grover Norquist & his "poopy-head" entry.Elections don't matter any more. All the lower marginal rates talk is pure crap too. All of it:Hey America! Remember the good old days when if a man lied to another man's face he'd be taken to the street & horsewhipped? The days when a flim-flamming snake-oil salesman would be run out of town on a rail, decorated in tar & feathers? Where has that America gone, America?
Even more amusing is the decision to rationalize or explain or whatever Romney's loss by crying that, in a campaign, campaigning is unfair. The Obama campaign had the gall to keep their mailing lists up to date, for example, as we noted yesterday. And more than once the scurrilous accusation Obama made ("Romney caused cancer!") is followed by the whiner saying the Romney campaign didn't answer the scurrility. Conclusion: The Republican campaign sucked, & Obama approved this negative message. We can only wonder why the Romney campaign never responded. Could it be that Romney did cause cancer?
Just one more example of research: A paragraph or four from the snooty version, as typed by whoever drew the short straw-man at Ye Olde American Spectator.
Drag out the multi-syllabics if you like, but you can't convince us that somehow both horses in the race lost.
