Bored, bored bored.  Let's see what stupid stuff is being said at the Weekly Standard which I can mock

http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/decline-and-fall_654827.html

Quote
When The Decline and Fall of the American Republic is written centuries hence, the date October 17, 2012, will occupy a prominent place in the narrative. On this day, a playoff game between the Yankees and the Tigers in Detroit was called not because of rain, but because of … the threat of rain. Just as today’s “liberalism has become hardly more than a trembling in the presence of illiberalism,” so, in Obama’s America, Major League Baseball cancels games not because of rain but because of trembling in the presence of the threat of rain.

:ohnotache:
"The thoughts of all men arise from the darkness. If you are the movement of your soul, and the cause of that movement precedes you, then how could you ever call your thoughts your own? How could you be anything other than a slave to the darkness that comes before? Only the Logos allows one to mitigate that slavery. Only knowing the sources of thought and action allows us to own our thoughts and our actions, to throw off the yoke of circumstance."
- R. Scott Bakker, The Darkness That Comes Before

The hypertext in the article that was supposed to explain "liberalism trembling in the face of iliberalism" took me to this:

Actually, I see the point he's trying to make, and it seems valid to me.

The left is a gigantic set of playground wimps that hasten to tell you that they're left-leaning or bipartisan or whatever the fuck excuse they have this week for being GREAT BIG SISSIES.  Liberals SHIT THEIR PANTS when in the presence of conservatives, because they have bought the conservative's narrative.  While individuals may be different, the "left" as a whole is absolutely fucking useless.  I shit on them from a great height.

Today's "liberals" are the primary reason the Overton Window has moved so sharply right.  Instead of drawing a line and saying, 'fuck THAT', they actively "reach across the aisle", not realizing that the right wing is just STANDING there, making the libs come to them and calling that "middle ground".

And this is why Romney now stands a pretty good chance of being elected.  Liberals are either disgusted by Obama's weak sister act and won't be bothered, or they're PURISTS and can't bring themselves to vote for Obama because he is a great deal less than perfect.

And they're going to get every fucking thing they deserve.  The only thing keeping me from laughing is that a whole lot of people I know who DON'T deserve it live on the soft side of the economy (Nigel, my friend Hat, and others) are going to suffer with them.

Shitballs.  Every last motherfucker in this country.   I hope the Goddamn thing breaks off and slides into the ocean.  Christ, I fucking hate people.

They aren't effective narratives.  The left is just weak and LAZY.  And their constituents are WORSE.  ANY excuse to beg off from maybe GETTING OFF THEIR ARSES AND VOTING, much less getting involved.  Their parents and grandparents smoked dope in the 60s, so they think their work is fucking done.

A plague on all cowards.  Wait.  I don't NEED to say that, because it's COMING ANYWAY, to a nation full of people who either want to vote for Romney because he looks all alpha male, or are too fucking hip to vote for a guy whose feet are made out of clay.

FUCK 'EM ALL.  DIE, BASTARDS!

Ok, so how did the left get all the lazy cowards?

What I mean is, if it's a two-man con, why does one side get a larger share of ineffectual fuckups?

Also, too busy trying to look so fucking hip they can't be bothered with the game.

I love this shit.  Two man con.

Obama:  Drones.

Romney:  Drones, plus FUCKING YOU UP THE ASS FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE KOCH BROTHERS.

Which is worse?  The guy who's fucking you one way, or the guy who's fucking you that same way plus FIVE HUNDRED OTHER WAYS.

It's the difference between "bad" and "worse", and the fact that this is somehow unclear to a gigantic chunk of our "left" citizens is infuriating in a way that's difficult to describe.

No, the only thing between you and all these teabagger fucksticks with their fucked up legislation (killing unruly children, making women property, etc) is Obama.  Not that he's trying really hard...But Romney will ASSIST this shit.

Part of it could be just having more money and support. People who are good at controlling the narrative like Frank Luntz and Lee Atawater are the types who dont really have any values other than making money. Im sure if left leaning groups had access to the kinds of media exposure and spin doctoring the right has the situation would be very different.

And if you want to get a little tinfoilish, Tragedy and Hope claims that:

Quote
More than fifty years ago, the Morgan firm decided to infiltrate the Left-wing political movements of the United States. This was relatively easy to do since these groups were starved for funds and eager for a voice to reach the people. Wall Street supplied both. The purpose was not to destroy, dominate or take over but was really three-fold:

1) to keep informed about the Left-wing or liberal groups;

2) to provide them with a mouthpiece so they could blow off steam;

3) to have a final "veto" on their actions if they ever went radical. There was nothing really new about this decision, since other financiers had talked about it and even attempted it earlier.

The best example of the alliance of Wall Street and Left-wing publication was "The New Republic" a magazine founded in 1914 by Willard Straight using Payne Whitney money. The original purpose for establishing the paper was to provide an outlet for the progressive Left and to guide it in an Anglophile direction. This latter task was entrusted to Walter Lippmann.

Look, for all I hate about Obama, I fully know that Romney would do all the same, and add in much worse stuff.  I'm voting Obama. 

But what's it going to take, in a pragmatic sense, to pull the Window back to the left?
