THE AUGUST 27TH “FREAK SHOW” IN TAMPA IS HEADING OUR WAY
Posted August 14, 2012on:
Looks like they pulled out all the stops when putting together their convention speakers. Rick Scott, Jeb Bush, Condi Rice, Scott Walker, Rand Paul, Susan Martinez, Mike Huckabee, Rick Santorum. Be still my beating heart!
So far, the only Fruit Loop who has yet to get an invite is Sarah Palin and that may change between now and then since, as the Queen of the Tea Party, they may feel the need to attract those “fans” in the battleground states where it could make a huge difference.
But let’s consider the Who’s Who of this blow out who can be counted on to lift our spirits and send us scrambling to the voting booth come November to put their words into action:
Rick Santorum: will speak on the corruption attached to contraception, gay marriage, and women’s healthcare. Rick will be there to remind us that it just those policies that have decreased the morale of this nation and has even managed at one time to insert his belief that abortion has helped to decrease the revenue for Social Security.
Mike Huckabee: feels much the same way as Rick so expect a mouthful of mush to be served in equating liberalism with Satanism as a jumping off point to get this baby going full blast. Oh, and he hates gays and Muslims!
Jeb and Condi: both serving as reminders to those glory days of yesteryear when we were forced to live through the stupidity known as the Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld 8 year debacle that stands today as one of the worst times in our nation’s history. Though their names – like Valdemort – will never be mentioned, their presence will be hovering throughout.
Rand Paul: who better to explain that civil rights is merely a “theory” and not available to just anyone? Thanks to Daddy, he would never have been invited on his own steam but as a token of thanks to a man who never met a government program he could support.
Scott Walker: look for him to explain the need to eliminate unions and collective bargaining that have “crippled” the rich from even greater profits and calling for the overthrow of industry regulations that stand in the way of the “job creators”.
Susan Martinez: will speak on “behalf of women”. (I almost choked on this one.)
Paul Ryan: Preaching a sermon on “personal accountability” while shorting the sheets on Grannie’s bed. Nothing says “government” than the elimination of what it means.
Somewhere after these “bright lights” have had their turn, the nominee himself will take the stage and – as some have been reporting – finally “reveal his true self” (Clark Kent?) – to the waiting crowd. After 15 years and umpteen debates the time for the “real Mitt” to emerge will come sometime in late August 2012 if anyone cares enough to tune in. Just don’t expect him to “reveal” his tax returns.
There will be much Obama bashing to be sure. A lot of “restore our freedoms”chanting and breast beating over who is the “real American” delivered under a deluge of balloons and a panoply of flags. I plan to raise my glass each time the word “god” is mentioned since this may be the only way to watch this travesty but through a haze.
Because missing from this spectacle will be any form of empathy or progress this nation will need to survive. Forcing a senior from a hospital bed, denying a woman her rights to medical access, withholding healthcare from a child, denying education assistance from a student, “exporting” gays from the system, turning our environment into a strip mall, risking our air, food and water supplies – these are just some of what is proposed in an agenda that supports the rich and punishes the poor.
If science and education is not your “thing” this is the crowd you. If what you prefer is to be “ruled” rather than “governed” than here is your chance to stand up and be counted. If “ignorance” makes you feel “superior” than you should feel right at home with is mob of “Know Nothings”.
They don’t need Sarah Palin to make them look any dumber than they already are: they have successfully shown they are quite capable of doing that on their own. Remember, this is the same crowd who applauded the death penalty and booed a gay serviceman.
I give you the “stars” of the Tea Party who emerged with the last “message” we sent in 2010.
Feel better now?
