Are You As Excited As I Am?
Latest 2012 Gallup polling shows Mike Huckabee leading the GOP pack.
Wow, aren't you excited? Does it get any more compelling than the Huckster vs. Barry Obama? It's worth it to die in a traffic accident on the way to the polls to be a part of something this special! Huckabee vs. Obama. Man oh man. This is going to be more thrilling than the Cavs-Pistons game last night.
Speaking of cults, I was thinking the other day about judges. What's with the black robes and the "Your Honor" stuff? If I ever end up in court, I think I'll address the judge by his first name. "I plead not guilty, Tom." Black robes are for cult leaders.
But that's all part of the religion of Statism. You need those things because otherwise people might ask questions like, "who the eff are you to judge my actions?" We can't have anybody asking questions.
Ok, back to Chucklebee vs. the Bracketologist
On the one side you have an unapologetic warmonger and on the other side you have Huckabee. One's a talk show host and the other is a slick talker. Both are incredibly talented at faking real human emotion and sincerity. In fact, I think the Huckleberry might trump Obama on the crocodile tears scale. Have you ever heard him wax poetic about the mass murder machine? How **we** owe it to all those brave soldiers to stay until victory is complete in whatever country we're in doing whatever the heck it is we're doing?
The Huckster, he's a trip. He even has his own army. Of course, Huck's Army is mostly comprised of Chickenhawks. Here's the thing about Huck and his Army: they want to tell you how to live pretty much every aspect of your life but they don't actually want to be the ones to enforce the rules. They leave that to the poor and desperate (see: TSA.)
And if you haven't figured it out yet, this is why the State, in general, desires a permanent poverty-stricken class. They need these desperate people to carry out their plans. Someone has to be the thug pointing the gun, because it's not like Barry Obama or the Huckster are going to do it.
So you need that.
And if you're going to have your big popularity contest between two plastic men like Obama and Huck, you definitely need to rig the election rules to exclude all other candidates. The message is: This is the best we can do folks. Get over it. Pick one.
I'd rather shake hands with my governor than with Governor Huck or The Moral Leader of Our Time. As George Carlin once said about America's election fetish, "when I'm done masturbating, at least I have something to show for it."
