GOP SOP. Grand Old Party Standard Operating Procedure. GOPSOP.
It has a Suessian quality about it in that it’s obviously something disgusting and repulsive by its very nature even if you don’t know what it means (and when you do find out what it means, it seems all the more appropriate an acronym). Noun and verb…Gobsopian, Gopsoptive, Gopsopated…fuckin’ versatile, too. It has gopsopitude.
In any case, the facts are available to anyone who cares to take a look at just about any assertion or claim made by the candidates. And, therefore, so are the lies and distortions and thus the strength or weakness of both the arguments and the style in which they’re presented.
John McCain has asserted on numerous occasions that he would run an honourable campaign. He keeps saying it, insisting that he will not be dragged into negative campaigning no matter what dirty, sneaky tactics are employed by Barack Obama.
McCain has attacked Obama’s patriotism saying, “He’d rather lose a war in order to win a campaign,” compared him to Britney Spears and Paris Hilton, used ads containing Barack Obama’s face printed on US currency, lied about supporting MLK Day, accused Obama of playing the race card when McCain’s own campaign highlights the words “More Foreign” next to Obama’s photo. Way to be honourable, John.
Sadly, the title of my humble blog has never seemed more apt. It not only conquers nothing, the truth simply doesn’t matter. They’ll keep swinging dead cats of various tail lengths – race baiting, fear mongering, appeals to war hero POW patriotism, rile up the Hillabots, crank up the religious right, gun nuts – looking for the three or four percent they apparently need in the swing states. And that, among all the stunning, facepalm moments…how in the fuck are these evil fucktarded motherless shitheads not polling somewhere near Dubya’s approval rating?
Rove, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Cheney, Gonzalez, Miers…these fuckwits shredded the constitution, thumbed their noses at Congress and set about conducting illegal wars based on lies; kidnapping and torturing suspects, denying habeous corpus; wiretapping their own citizens without warrant, firing federal prosecutors for not being eager enough to launch investigations into political opponents…they’ve even been so fucking petty as to add the name of a reporter who questioned the “No Fly” list TO THE “NO FLY” LIST!!!
GOPSOP. It has no limits. It is infinity sticky, like the floor in Larry Craig’s fantasy mensroom.
The will of the people is merely something that needs to be gamed, controlled, manipulated. GOPSOPed.
John McCain is an unprincipled, lying, senile, unstable, warmongering, backward, fuckwit anachronism. Principles? Please. This honourable war hero act is a filthy sham as ugly and false as the idea that George W. Bush was a strong, war time president; a decider; competent; not a bumbling moronic chimpanzee insulated from the facts and sufficiently dim to parrot the shit he was fed.
And since it reminds me of Suess, here’s the opening bit from my favourite of the Good Dr.’s and a linky clickit’n go for the rest…
At the far end of town
where the Grickle-grass grows
and the wind smells slow and sour when it blows
and no birds ever sing excepting old crows…
is the Street of the Lifted Lorax.
