We can fully expect tonight’s debate to be dominated by one person: Candy Crowley.

Referring to these 90-minute commercials for Big Government as “debates” is the joke of the election season.

The Knipfing-steered Wilson-Heinrich spat was just as pathetic, although without the funny bits, such as the one where The Great White Obama cited the Declaration of Independence and talked about “free enterprise.”

But since tonight’s thinly-disguised advert is all about Robamney “vs” Robamney, what exactly is the Big R side of this all about, beyond increasing the size, expense and intrusiveness of Leviathan at the federal level?

Sure, Mittens says that he wants to lighten the Imperial District’s load on our backs, but not by much.

And then The Barack accuses Mittens of wanting to “slash” federal spending – to which Mittens replies by saying “We’re not slashing anything, we just want to slow the growth . . . “

Disgusting.

So how does anyone who claims the “Tea Party” ideals of supporting Constitutionally-limited government, fiscal restraint, individual rights and free-market economics end up supporting the likes of Mitt Romney?

Besides by dipping into the self-delusion of cognitive dissonance, that is?

Even ABC reporter Martha Radditz (whom I respect) was slanted in the vice-presidential debate, telling Paul Ryan “We’ve gone over this enough”, and “Let’s move on.” anytime he started to gain traction on Biden.

Let’s see – Ryan is the Congresscritter whose budget plan doesn’t balance the federal budget for 25, 30 years, and he hoped to gain any sort of traction on Biden?!

Ah, cognitive dissonance again.

That’s all right. In the end, Mitt Romney will outperform Obama.

That’s not exactly a high standard you’re hoping for there.

This is like having a pole-vaulting contest where the horizontal bar is resting on the floor.

WTF?! (TLE LTE)

Neil / Ken –

Just now (Saturday, 6 October @ 1:15 AM), I saw the message in my inbox that TLE #691 was up on the web, so I went to check it out.

What did I see when I scrolled down a bit?

A cartoon by Rex May of Romney spanking Obama like a little kid.

I was under the impression that TLE was above this sort of WWE-style cheerleading for the DNC-vs-RNC dance of death that plagues us every two years.

When the (fascist) Democrat fights dirty and cheats, we’re supposed to jeer, yet when the (socialist) Republican pulls the same sort of dirty tricks, we’re supposed to cheer. Because, we all know, the Republican is the “lesser of two evils” good guy.

Anyone who has been reading TLE and similar media outlets for any length of time has no doubt seen numerous examples of stupidity, evil and insanity instigated by Republicans. But they’re the “lesser of two evils” bunch, correct?

For what it’s worth, I watched what’s been politely called a “debate” and saw the two clowns stammering out their “talking points” while making excuses for their track records and trying to score points on the other with witty one-liners.

Most of these one-liners were the same old, tired bits that we’ve all heard before from them, courtesy of the lamestream snoozemedia.

Still, I was quite amused that gun-grabber and health-care socializer Slick Willard had the audacity to talk about “free enterprise” and invoke the Declaration of Independence.

This is the same Slick Willard who supported TARP as signed by Bush, supported cap-and-trade for CO2 emissions, supported the GM bailout . . . . Need I go on?

About Mittens’ earlier promises to “repeal and replace Obamacare” – last Wednesday night he revealed exactly what he wants for the “replace” part of the scam – RomneyCare as implemented in 2006 in Massachusetts.

Here’s the funny part about this nonsense: he implied that he wants RomneyCare to replace ObamaCare, yet RomneyCare is what Jon Gruber (the MIT economics professor who helped RMonster put together the plan in Boston) pitched to the Obama Administration in 2009 as a template for Obamacare.

Meet the new bullshit, same as the old bullshit.

At first I was thinking that this was a bait-and-switch scam, but it’s more like the shell game that con artists play on the street – the ball, which was something like free-market health care, was nowhere to be found under any of the shells.

OK, this is the part where Rex starts behaving as a Romney-roid (think hemorrhoid, minus the rationality and principles) by screaming that I must want Obama re-elected, “If your not with us, your with Obama!!!!” that sort of thing.

Bring it on.

And if this sort of thing continues, then it’s probably time for a new front-page cartoonist on TLE. Let Rex peddle his Romney-porn somewhere else.
