You Can’t Beat Santa Claus

Rush has a good assessment of our predicament:

But first, let me tell you, small things beat big things yesterday. Conservatism, in my humble opinion, did not lose last night. It’s just very difficult to beat Santa Claus. It is practically impossible to beat Santa Claus. People are not going to vote against Santa Claus, especially if the alternative is being your own Santa Claus.

And he is right about a couple more things – America rejected a truly good man in favor of a used car salesman looking to move that last unit for the month. Want healthcare – you got it. Easy money – Hey, Bennie! Fire up the printing presses! Free Condoms! Want us to kill your baby? No problem…and even better, we’ll get those stiff collared Holy Rollers in one of those redneck states to pay for it! Don’t worry about what anything costs, we tote the note – your grand kids are on the hook and you will be long gone before the bill shows up, so who gives a damn, amiright?!

Now, everybody is jumping on Romney’s chain today, getting in his chili. Look, he may have not been the most optimal candidate, but he’s a fine man. He would have been great for this country. Mitt Romney and his family would have been the essence of exactly what this country needs. But what was Romney’s recipe? Romney’s recipe was the old standby: American route to success, hard work. That gets sneered at. I’m sorry. In a country of children where the option is Santa Claus or work, what wins? And say what you want, but Romney did offer a vision of traditional America. In his way, he put forth a great vision of traditional America, and it was rejected. It was rejected in favor of a guy who thinks that those who are working aren’t doing enough to help those who aren’t. And that resonated.

  1. I guess we have to run the Easter Bunny then. Like Rush said…when has the Republicans run a truly Conservative against the Liberal Democrat…. when that happens and the Conservative still looses then…. pack it in. We’ll be doomed and there will be no turning back. Hope I have my tickets to some 3rd world chicken Sh#t country, cause it’s not warm enough here in the winter.

  2. Mitt was no where near the best representative the GOP could have had on the ballot, but he was by far the best of the two possible winners we had to chose between yesterday.

  3. Mitt Romney and Barack Obama somehow ended up at the same barber shop.

    As they sat there, each being worked on by a different barber, not a word was spoken. The barbers were even afraid to start a conversation, for fear it would turn to politics.

    As the barbers finished their shaves, the one who had Obama in his chair reached for the aftershave. Obama was quick to stop him saying,

    ‘No thanks, my wife will smell that and think I’ve been in a brothel.’

    The second barber turned to Romney and said, ‘How about you sir?’ Romney replied,

    ‘Go ahead; my wife doesn’t know what the inside of a brothel smells like.’

  4. Gosh, now I must decide between calling this epidemic the Free Shit Army or Santa Clause. I tell you, both terminologies just make me want to break into song and attempt some sort of awkward pelvic-thrust dance move. (I tried that tonight and threw my back out…..)

    • Careful Kells. You are getting to that age that you do not want to enter the Universal Healthcare system.

      They are going to be screening us old folks for cost effective care.

      • I am 21 and I am staying there. And it just so happens, due to my inexplicable wriggling (the only way in which to describe my dancing) I now get to do my own thing down stage of the others. Uh-huh! Sometimes it pays not to be able to do the half-moon-butt-pelvic-quoi-thrust move.

        Well, I don’t have any worries about healthcare, right? Aren’t you going to be my personal physician?

  5. You know Utah … I just simply cannot expand on that. It is a straight up bulls-eye of an assessment of what happened yesterday.

    Sickening to be honest, but accurate none the less.
