The Other McCain: Monday is over, but these next four years are gonna suck

Why did I not watch the coronation yesterday? Because Monday was only the beginning of the ass kissing the media is going to engage in for Dear Leader. I fear it will get so bad the FCC might deem the media coverage unfit for anything except pay-per-view.

Others who chronicled the event now have stains on their pants from the orgasmic gush. Chris Matthews emitted his usual effusion of idiocy, and over on the Third-Place Cable News Network With Lower Ratings Than MSNBC (The One That People Only Watch When They’re Stuck in Airports), Jim Acosta was trying to out-gush Matthews:

“You know, I feel like I should pinch myself right now, Wolf. I can’t believe I have this vantage point of history in the making . . . It’s good to be the President. It’s almost like being a rock star on every street corner of Washington on this day.”

Our nation is being destroyed, and the press corps is reduced to the role of partisan pom-pom girls for The Great Destroyer. Meanwhile, the alleged leaders of the opposition have no clue of how to rescue themselves from their current condition of helpless impotence. The search for any reason to smile amid this catastrophe — which I blame entirely on the gross ineptitude of the overpaid dimwit fratboys running the Republican Party — turns up precious few nuggets of encouragement:

All I can say is SIGH!


Do you believe in polls, or people?

Stacy McCain, who is up to no good in Ohio, poses that question, and with darned good reason. Personally, I think all those polls are cooked, to depress GOP voter turnout, and, truth be told, Obama is headed for a fairly bad loss in November. Stacy offers up a good report from Toledo

OK, if you believe the polls, Mitt Romney’s 10 points behind in Ohio. But then there are those people — THOUSANDS of people — who stood in line in the rain to get in to see Mitt this afternoon in downtown Toledo:

Well those folks likely never got polled, which, again, begs the question

Do you believe in the polls, or do you believe in thepeople?

PEOPLE! People fed up with the worst president in America’s history. People fed up with Obama’s war on the economy, and his bumbling foreign policy, and runaway spending, and so on. And yes, people fed up with biased reporting

Jim Acosta of CNN got an exclusive one-on-one interview with Mitt Romney yesterday in order that he could ask Mitt this ridiculous question:

“African-Americans have a tremendous sense of pride that there is the first African-American president in the White House. If you were to somehow beat the first African-American president, what would you say to the black community to assure them that you would be their president also?”

Noel Sheppard of Newsbusters says Acosta “should be ashamed of himself,” but what shocks me is that, instead of punching Acosta in the face, Romney politely answered the question:

“I want to be the president of all the people of America. I want to help all the people of America. You don’t get into a race like this with myself and my family and do the kind of work and commitment that we’ve put forward without the passion to help all of America. And the people who really need the help right now are the people in the middle class, people who have fallen into poverty. I know how to get them help. The president doesn’t.”

That was a good answer, but watching Mitt punch Acosta in the face would have been fun too, and talk about blogging gold? WOW! Stacy agrees

Show of hands: How many of our readers would like to see Mitt Romney punch out a network reporter on live TV? 

Yeah — it’s unanimous. Do it, Mitt.

There ya go, Pugilists for Mitt!
