I'm just sitting here, drinking some Pabst Blue Ribbon because my father has decided that we're not suffering enough, and watching some Bill Maher.
He's got Dana Gould, Maxine Waters, and Stephen Moore on the panel.
I'm watching, listening, laughing.
And I've come to a conclusion:
Stephen Moore is one dumb son of a bitch.
I'm sorry, but he is. He writes for the Wall Street Journal, what used to kinda be a valid source for intelligent commentary, but this idiot....
Here's some lovely samples:
-- "Get used to her because she will be the first female President of the United States."
You don't need context for that, unless the context was, "...Everyone in the United States has died of flying ball rot except for Sarah Palin."
-- "Bill Clinton promised a middle class tax cut 16 years ago, I'm still waiting for it!"
Are you fucking kidding me? You really work for the Wall Street Journal?
-- "You mean groups like ACORN? Trying to steal the election?"
.... No words. (btw, Dipshit McGee didn't know what it stood for).
-- "Americans know nothing -- know very little about Barack Obama, he's only been in the United States for 3 years."
Yeah, he really said that. I swear I'm not making it up.
-- "Can you say with a straight face, do you actually think Barack Obama has better qualifications to be President than Sarah Palin?"
And on that note, I'm going to pour another Pabst because, hell, if you're going to suffer, you should suffer for realsies.
But back to Stephen Moore and how big of a stupid dick he is.
Those quotes pretty much summed up his entire verbal contribution to the show, leaving aside him talking about Palin being an empowered woman and other nonsense that would make Hannity pull his head out of McCain's ass just long enough to give Moore a special little wink before going spelunking again.
It's fucking insane. These are the people we have to deal with now, and these will be the people we have to deal with when Obama kicks the living shit out of McCain and puts a few nails in the coffin of modern conservatism.
These people--people like Stephen Moore--will be our enemy.
They are the targets for ridicule, for boycotting, for letters to the editor, for emails to the WSJ, etc.
Idiots and brain-dead hacks like Moore will stop at nothing to hurt Obama and hurt the Democratic party. No lie is too low, no smear too rough, nothing is off limits for them.
They're already doing it, and they will never stop.
So that's where we come in.
Knock on doors.
Call some people.
Open up those wallets.
Don't give up, don't get complacent.
Because people like Moore apparently get paid for their bullshit by the pound and they won't stop, no matter how good it looks for Obama.
No giving up.
No taking it easy.
And never, ever allow dumb sons of bitches like Moore get away with his crap.
