"The main problem in any democracy is that crowd-pleasers are generally brainless swine who can go out on a stage & whup their supporters into an orgiastic frenzy - then go back to the office & sell every one of the poor bastards down the tube for a nickel apiece. Probably the rarest form of life in American politics is the man who can turn on a crowd & still keep his head straight - assuming it was straight in the first place."

- Hunter S. Thompson

Some stories in recent days in the St. Pete Times have focused on the growing angst within the lunatic fringe, racist, know-nothing pseudo movement formally known as the Tea Party towards savior Marco Rubio. To say that the honeymoon is just about over would greatly understate the truth in that the ideological purists of the American Khmer Rouge may just be starting to catch on that they were played by Jeb Bush's oily little protege from Miami. The Tea Party which is really just a spiffy way of referring to the re-branded hard core haters and neo-Confederate Jesus juicers of a Republican base post the toxic George W. Bush name has a serious Year Zero style plan for a grand American right-wing social engineering project that anything but a cult like devotion towards seeing through will quickly be discarded and kicked out of the club. You see, taking their country back has always been all about destroying the social safety net, ridding the land of their hated enemies including liberals, gays, successful Hispanics and Blacks with any sort of power who aren't toadies for the GOP, for example a teahouse Tom like Allen West or Herman Cain. The scumbaggers also want to strip women of privacy rights, round up and intern Muslims and while they bask in the glory of their political power to destroy they also eagerly enable the oligarchs and billionaire tax chiselers like the Koch Brothers to destroy the regulatory structure and profit obscenely at the expense of the working class.

Seems like the Gadsden flag-sucking berserkers are getting a bit restive with their pet Hispanic Rubio, his stance on immigration is a bit too liberal for the disciples of Sheriff Joe Arpaio and they are demanding action from the son of Cuban immigrants, the same type of people that the Palinazis have no tolerance for. You have to admit that watching Rubio do the Mexican hat dance on this issue is a thing of beauty at least for those like myself who have always recognized that Dirty Marco despite his Tony Montana staccato was nothing but an opportunistic fraud. Unlike Governor Skeletor Marco Rubio isn't an ideologue nor a pathological criminal. Rubio in a way is much worse, he is a low rent conniving charlatan with zero scruples who saw an opening and rode a wave of visceral hatred and racism courtesy of the GOP co-opted teabaggers to a Senate seat. Rubio is a Jeb Bush protege, shifty, sneaky and slick as P.Rick Scott's slime trail but he isn't a lunatic. It's going to be fun watching him try to triangulate Clinton style to satisfy the beasts of the tea party as they bray for shovels of bloody meat. I personally think that Dirty Marco is just laying in the weeds like a hungry little animal watching Governor Skeletor destroy Florida so when the time comes he can sweep into Tallahassee and be seen as a savior.This may not be possible now as he betrays the useful idiots whose racism he relied on to slither his way into a U.S. Senate seat.

All of the bitter and angry, pasty white, fat, racist northern transplants happily sucking off the government teat while trying to destroy Medicare for all future generations while providing essential GOP support up in The Villages (P.Rick Scott's REAL constituents) are now crapping their star spangled Grampers now that their little pet isn't quite the race baiting demagogue that he portrayed himself as. Though luck to the bluehairs living up in Copland, despite their deep seated bigotry you all put up with Ricky Ricardo as long as he sang and danced your tune (perhaps a Salsa version of the Horst Wessel Song) but once he is no longer the pocket Cuban they turn on him like the bitter old relics of a society long gone but one that they are dug in like Alabama ticks to try to restore. Yes indeed the haters so wanted a man like Dirty Marco who represented CHANGE, the teabaggers were going to transform the system and were mesmerized by the siren song of careerists like Rubio. The dumb bastards in the Tea Party are barely smart enough to change their underwear, accepting a lifelong insider like Rubio and expecting anything less than being sold down the river is evidence of their credulousness. Sure they will give Marco hell for anything less than supporting a total roundup and deportation of undocumented immigrants, building a fifty foot electric fence along the boarder along with an alligator infested moat, mining the harbors and gassing those who dare to come back. Tough luck you schmucks you been had!

The truth is that Senator Rubio doesn't need the costumed clowns that are the scumbaggers, HIS term runs for 6 years, way beyond the memory span of those most buffoonish racists. 6 years is an eternity in politics, also just think of how the passage of time will significantly lower the number of teabaggers through sheer demographics alone. A good amount of those selfish, bigoted bluehairs will be taking their dirt nap come 2016.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    it overwhelms the point of your diary to compare the tea party folks to the Khmer Rouge.  Yes, they have ideological idiocies.  But the KR killed at least a quarter of Cambodia's population in just three years.  Unless you are saying this extreme is what the tea partiers are aiming for, I would strongly urge you to pick a different comparison.  I can't even concentrate on the rest of your argument because the rhetoric is so extremely offensive.

    It's pretty bad down here right now, the Governor is a megalomaniac lunatic who is taking the axe to any and all progressive advances of the last fifty years. He is totally unaccountable and the scumbaggers love him, nowhere is this more evident than the heavily armed encampment known as The Villages. Prick Scott held this big dog and pony show here the other day in The Villages where he made a big production of busing in children as stage props and having his hired goons throw Democrats out. Those who live there and support him are hard core racist ingrates, retirees who will do everything to support the teabagger jihadists so that any subsequent generations are going to be screwed out of the Medicare and Social Security they enjoy collecting and then in the utmost of hypocrisy support these right wing swine like Scott, Rubio and that little rat faced Bircher Paul Ryan.

    We are going down hard here in the sunshine state and there is nothing that the system can do to save anyone thanks to the ignorant and hell bent on destroying their enemies brownshirts in the Tea Party.

    It sucks to be here right now because nobody can fight back against any of this due to the thorough corruption of the state government and the dominance of the freaks in the Tea Party.

    ...the versatile cabana boy that steals from you when he's not fucking you, all while not paying rent. The T-baggers are so mentally deformed that they mistakenly saw his hatreds, ambitions and loyalties as being identical to their own. Their own prejudice prevented them from acquainting themselves with the dreadful Cuban GOP types and learning that they have their own slow-boiling agenda that has nothing to do with the confederacy ascending.

      Thank you for the compliments, I will be posting here from now on because I got tired of the bastards in Florida and their censorship of comments. What really stinks though is that the St. Petersburg Times, once  a bastion of great journalism has sold it's soul to the whore beltway D.C. consensus manufacturer Politico for the upcoming campaign season.

      I will be doing my damn best down here in Herr Reinhard Scott's kingdom of corruption to get the word out about all of the rotten tricks both for the local GOP and their scumbaggers as well as the national candidates who will be descending like nothing since the Terri Sciavo circus maxiumus for the Tampa Convention.

        So sad to hear about that newspaper turning. They were the guys that took on scientology. I lived in Miami for a dozen I know how hard it can be to get people to recognize reality...that they even elected that fucking crook was mind-boggling but his destructive scorched-earth agenda has got to be resonating with some folks.

  •  Not a single misplaced adjective (0+ / 0-)

    Now I can keep my blood pressure down by  passing on your rantto my friends  instead of my own.  Living in Florida as we do is living in madness.  But people get the government they choose and all around me I see the buyers remorse.  Unfortunately the damage Rubio and Scott are doing will take a generation to undo.

    One of my fellow teachers at the middle school in which I teach used to accost me in the hallways to gloat about last year's Republican victories with smarmy plans to cut the first ladies budget and and all that other liberal waste in Washington and Tallahassee.  Now his tea party heroes have cut his pay, and more importantly, per student spending to the point that that Florida now ranks 50th in the nation.  As my county goes to four day work weeks and teacher layoffs, (one of which is likely to be his) my co-worker has ceased to crow.  His silence is deafening.  Am I a bad person for hoping that if anybody at my school loses their job, it's him?  Don't care.  People who seek their own self destruction deserve what they get.

      This scum here doesn't pick fair fights, they go after soft targets like teachers and those who can't defend themselves while laughing and gloating at how they are sticking it to the black man in the WHITE House.

      What I would suggest would be a decentralized swarm attack on the Florida government, they need to be exposed and P.Rick Scott is a criminal who should be in prison for Medicare fraud and now there is more political corruption and graft...

      The political system won't work and the media is not reliable.... a citizen's effort to take this Nazi down is what is needed.
