The Rude Pundit: Photos That Are Like the Purest Heroin Followed by the Sweetest Whiskey Chaser



For a hit of pure, undiluted schadenfreude, you can do no better than that one up there. It's a page from the prepped-and-ready-to-go-but-now-iced Romney inauguration and transition website. Oh, man, that'll give you that warm feeling you get when you feel really good shit course through your veins or really fine whiskey go down your throat to make a fireplace in your belly. And then you read closely and you see:



Not "to serve our country" period. No, "to serve our country as a member of the Romney-Ryan administration." That's the "honor." That's the "privilege." Now, Mitt Romney gets to tell that to his Hispanic gardeners, who he can finally re-hire and who can then piss on Romney's azaleas to return the honor.

You know that feeling you get whenever you see a semi jackknife on an icy road ahead of you and you make that quick turn to avoid being smeared by the trailer? That sense of incredible relief and the intensity of being alive as you look in the rearview mirror to see the wreckage that could have been you? Yeah, that's how it feels looking at these images. (And, yeah, that was more or less the Rude Pundit's post-nor'easter commute this morning.)

Let's kick these fuckers while they're down. Let's degrade them and mock them for not understanding that voters actually give a damn about the nation, unlike the Republican Party. Let's make them feel every ache, every lump, because if we don't, they are going to attempt, again and again, to get up and gut us, like every cliched serial killer in every cheap straight-to-video bullshit flick. You don't walk away when the murderer just looks dead. You cut off his head so that you know he is.

Here's what the right is saying while sucking on its sour grapes in the wake of Barack Obama's reelection:

Bill O'Reilly: "It's a changing country, the demographics are changing. It's not a traditional America anymore. And there are 50 percent of the voting public who want stuff. They want things and who is going to give them things? President Obama. He knows it and he ran on it.

"And whereby 20 years ago President Obama would have been roundly defeated by an establishment candidate like Mitt Romney. The white establishment is now the minority. And the voters, many of them, feel that this economic system is stacked against them and they want stuff.

"You're going to see a tremendous Hispanic vote for President Obama. Overwhelming for President Obama and women will probably break President Obama's way. People feel that they are entitled to things and which candidate, between the two, is going to give them things?"

Cal Thomas: "Politicians bid for votes, making promises they can't keep to voters who will believe anything, as long as it appeals to greed, envy and their sense of entitlement. This undermines our culture. This fuels our massive debt, weakening our economic power and America's standing in the world."

Rush Limbaugh, after declaring "We're outnumbered": "There is no rising to responsibility. There is no accepting responsibility. There's just a demand that the gravy train continue, and we have an administration that's promising an endless gravy train. All you have to do to stay on that gravy train is vote. But it doesn't matter.

Scared, scared white men all, blaming those demographically-different (or, you know, black and Hispanic) people who want stuff, the half of America that pours gravy from the train, gravy like Medicare and the GI Bill and Pell Grants, acting as if the Bush tax cuts and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan weren't the indulgent luxuries of a fading empire that chose frivolity and fantasy over the mundane work of actually taking care of the country and its citizens. But that would require self-reflection, and it's always easier just to blame the spics for stealing your hubcaps rather than realizing they're gone because you hit the curb a while ago because you're a shitty driver.

(Side note: It always struck the Rude Pundit as odd that people attacked Barack Obama for not having a "plan" for his second term. No, he always had a plan. What he didn't have was a worthless scheme, a grand and mighty doctrine that he could attempt to shove the country into. If there is such a thing, the Obama doctrine might best be called "If shit is broken, fix it.")

6. Obviously...

 

...these a-holes aren't superstitious or believe in karma. To have been so arrogant as to already have this 'in the can' is an open invitation for the 'Gods Of Future Happenings' to smack their asses down, for which I say, like the kid from 'Animal House'...Thank you God(s).

10. "Unfortunate enough to have had his published?"

Would not the Romney campaign be in charge of it being published? They certainly had no trouble getting it unpublished.

Yes, it makes complete sense that any non-incumbent candidate would have a transition site prepared. But actually publishing it before the election is final reeks of the hubris and arrogance that defines Romney.

Its premature publication wasn't just some unfortunate happenstance that befell the candidate.

15. Probably.

The difference is most probably have a transitional website prepared while also writing a concession speech. That it never occurred to them they might lose is probably the most startling example of arrogance from a campaign that was known for being arrogant.

11. "We're DOOMED!"

HAHAHA! I've read that on numerous posts on numerous web sites.

We aren't doomed. You guys just lost...again. That's all.

And I love how they think a bunch of "welfare queens" voted Obama in. Do they really think that over 50% on the electorate is on welfare?????

Isn't expecting tax cuts (you don't need) to remain in place, but were written (by your own party) to expire, wanting "stuff" you don't deserve, but think you are entitled to?

Please remind pundits, when you can, the CORPORATE WELFARE costs far more than any personal welfare and it, plus tax loopholes, that only the Romneys of the country can jump thru, are entitlements, not food stamps so kids can eat.

Well why not...they would kick us when we are down...but in honesty I probably won't actually do that...but I agree with the sentiments of it completely.
The Rude One is just all eat up with awesomeness...

21. The way to kick them is to use the power we won to implement Democratic policies

No need to do anything else really. After a while, a few of them will realize how wrong they were, how they were lied to when they find themselves living in a civilized country that cares about people, even them.

Living well is the best revenge! Helping everyone to live well is what Democrats do.

16. Scared, scared little white men.....In denial....

That's what they are and my favorite statement from his Rudeness that describes these scared little white men who can only blame the demographically-different from them for all their woes and wanting their "stuff" in need of self-reflection:

"......it's always easier just to blame the spics for stealing your hubcaps rather than realizing they're gone because you hit the curb a while ago because you're a shitty driver."

They and their "White Republic" have been shitty drivers and they have lost their license to drive this country off the cliff....

We women, non-white's have taken back the steering wheel and they are freaking.....

Fuck em.....

Damn feels good.....like the rush that his rudeness states above....

19. The cutest thing all the Reichwingers are spewing

is that people voted for Obama because they wanted "freebies."

Like all those billions of $$$$$$$ the rich POURED into Rmoney Boo Boo's campaign were donated with NO expectation of government freebies.

They crack me up every day!

It's okay to be profanely rich and to soak the government with your no-bid contracts and your corporate subsidies, but don't you dare be a working class person expecting health care, even if you DO work three jobs because your wages are so goddamned low due to Reichwing policies....

it boggles the mind how they only complain about the little takers, while they're fellating the BIG TAKERS

Like nobody sees the hypocrisy since this meme "works for them?" Really, Wingnuts? Are you THAT stupid?

So fucking cute I could spit.
