That Loathsome Campaign Trail

Oprah Winfrey, Barack Obama & Michelle Obama

Plumbing the depths of the Obama campaign …

Leaving all decency behind us
We travel through the muck
With Holyshitwood to guide us
On the loathsome trail we truck

Never to return

“In other words, a large portion of the American public has effectively been brainwashed. And the brainwashers are the Democratic Party and the mainstream media. […] Journalists fear for their jobs and their jobs are increasingly precarious. If they change their opinions, even investigate the possibility that the other side might have some reasons, quite often they are out the door. So not only do they toe the line, they are disinclined even to consider alternatives in their minds, consciously or unconsciously, because those alternatives are dangerous to their livelihood. […] They have seen the same things we all have and know that the economy (the very heart of America) is failing. And they know deep down that they are responsible for some of it, because they bought and promoted Barack Obama as if he were a messiah without the slightest bit of vetting. Obama was anointed, not elected. To this day no one knows who he is, possibly even Obama himself. And deep down these journos are embarrassed by this (who wouldn’t be?) but they can never never admit it. To do so would injure their self-image and self-respect to the level of personality disintegration. So this shame is projected out in rage and, yes, loathing toward you, me, Mitt Romney, and anyone else who might deign to disagree with them. […] It is, after all, projection. Ideology is but a pretentious cover for rage. […] For to wander off the reservation is a road to penury. And who wants that now more than ever with the number of media jobs contracting? Of course, the ones who are screwed by this song and dance are you and me — the American public. And no doubt some day the journalists themselves. If Obama wins, they will rejoice on election day. But they will shortly be throwing up. In the words of Brillat-Savarin, 'You are what you eat'. (Actually he said, 'Tell me what you eat and I will tell you what you are' — a yet more delicious irony).”

I'll tell you what the journos eat — they eat shit. Moreover, when they finish their daily platefull, they say, "It tastes like shit, but it's good!

    Reminds me of that old "The Price is Right" parody by the Firesign Theater...

    The contestant, Mrs Presky, is asked, “Do you want what’s behind that door or what’s in the bag?”

    She blurts, “I’ll take the bag!" After a moment of pregnant silence, she says (in a querulous voice): "Why... why... this is a bag of shit!”

    “Yes” the announcer boasts, “but it's really grrreat shit!”
