Maybe Atheists are the normal

OK the title may cause people to damn me to hell or create a voodoo doll to be manufactured in my likeness (Oh that would be one big ass package), but I have a problem with people of faith attacking other people’s faith.

A few weeks ago, the Media was all in a rage concerning the words by Rev. Jeffres of “Mormonism is a cult” and the backlash once again began. I had my money on February 17, 2012 till someone went after Mitt Romney’s faith and I’m positive Pres O’s religious prospects are now soon to follow.

I’ll admit, I am not a religious person nor am I an Atheist either. I was raised Catholic, went to catholic school in my youth and even spent time as an altar boy, but I am also a person that believes that if you have Faith within you, then there is no reason to attend Church. Odd as it may sound, to me, Church is merely symbolic to the means, for faith is with someone at all times. If I pray at home, is it different then in Church? Does it make me less religious to pray at home then in Church?

I wonder if Rick Santorum would like to argue or agree with me on those statements.

I have written about Faith and the Presidency before and ones religious belief means nothing as to how one shall preside over our nation, after all we were not created as a Christian nation. Carl Rove has even said so as of late

“…We believe that all men are bound to sustain and uphold their respective governments in which they reside, while protected in their inherent and inalienable rights by the laws of such governments…” Doctrine and Covenants (132: 1, 3, 5)

Americans must understand that a day will come when a President’s faith is other then Christian. We will have a Jewish President and by all accounts, we may have a Mormon candidate this time next year.

Don’t believe me? Well there are three candidates campaigning that are of Mormon faith; Mitt Romney, Jon Huntsman and Ron Paul. Yet, because of his top tier status is why Romney gets the attack headlines.

Yet, the airwave messiah Glenn Beck has been quiet on these attacks on Mormonism.

In the past, Beck has spoken of when he hit bottom in his life of drugs and alcohol, it was the Mormon Faith that helped him regain control of his life and has thrived ever since.

Mormon Faith has always had that dark side that everyone still believes thrives within, but then again so do so many other religions as well. The Mormon Church has spent a lot of time and money to debunk the stories we’ve become accustomed to in the Media and HBO’s “Big Love.” The advertising is pretty darn convincing.

Heck many people that listen to Beck probably don’t even know he is using his Mormon Faith within his own endorsements as well, such as Food Insurance or Gold Line.

Mormons are famous for their survivalist practices, which makes sense that Ron Paul and Glenn Beck promote the return of the Gold Standard (Value in apocalyptic days?) and denote the US Dollar so much when speaking in terms of Fiscal responsibility.

For the past 65+ years, it has become a requirement in the faith for preparedness of any and all emergencies. Storage stockpiles of necessities such as water, food, pasta and instant meals can be found in all households. A running joke is that one can spot a Mormon just by peeking into their garage and seeing canned goods stacked to the rafters. In many Mormon community grocery stores, one can find an area stocked with prepackaged 2 week supply containers for sale, while other grocery stores reserve space for “As Seen on TV” products like Snuggies and Chia Pets.

Truly this is not too make light of any religion, yet when Glenn Beck has spent over a year with his “Restore Honor” and trips to Israel, many have started to question Beck’s faith, is he a Mormon or is he a Christian nowadays?

What will be next for people to attack religion on? Should we segregate our Military as well with a Religious “Don’t Ask Don’t Pray” bill?

I’m pretty sure that if soldiers are in a fire fight in Afghanistan, one will not turn to the other and say “Hey Billy Jack, you ain’t one of those Mormons are you? ‘Cuz I don’t wanna die with a Mormon next to me.”
NO! Their only thought will be “Hey Billy Jack, you better knows how to use your gun!”

On Oct 9, Newt Gingrich told CBS’s Bob Schieffer “"I think that none of us should sit in judgment on somebody else's religion,” yet at the Las Vegas debates said “How can I trust you with power if you don’t pray?”

Religious Faith has nothing to do with how a President presides over our country. Neither Abraham Lincoln nor Andrew Johnson had a religious affiliation.

Do we judge either President by their lack of known religious affiliation?

Well considering Lincoln is ranked #2 behind Ronald Reagan in Presidential favoritism by Gallup, I would say religious belief had nothing to do with it.

Although he was a Presbyterian, Pres Rutherford Hayes attended services by Episcopal and Methodist churches.

Pres James Polk was originally Presbyterian before switching to Methodist and Pres Eisenhower was raised as a Jehovah Witness until his mid-teens before switching to Presbyterian.

Should we question their Presidencies on religious purpose alone? No we should not, we judge their Presidencies by the time for which we live(d) and the outcome of their actions, not whether if the read the 98th Psalm.

I give Mitt Romney huge props for being the better man than those that question his Faith. My guess is if Romney does become our 45th President, will the Media attack him if he does not release an Easter Proclamation, as they did Pres O hadn’t, even though history has proved that no President in the past 3 decades hasn’t either.

However, I can say “Gov Perry is one leisure suit and rose rimmed glasses away from being Rev Jim Jones’ twin” if I was to go only by appearance.

GOP Debates to be sponsored by WWE & Slim Jims! for now on

I’d like to thank Vince McMahon and the WWE for sponsoring the Las Vegas GOP debate on Oct 18.

OK, well it should’ve been sponsored by VKM and Company because the only thing missing was a Steel Cage. Wow! Choke holds, kicks to the groin, and open hand slaps were given out by the GOP candidates last night and thank god Newt Gingrich wasn’t wearing Spandex

The last debate gave some serious competition to the front runners as everyone was on the attack and somehow Mitt Romney kept a calm demeanor and hair in place.

Feisty spats over Illegal immigration, Obama care, Foreign Aid, Tax laws, and Yucca Mountain reigned supreme in the latest debate, so here’s the skinny:

Illegal immigrants
Gov Perry went old school Mr. Fuji with a salt tablet from the shorts by bringing up Romney’s past with an Illegal landscaper. Truly, this is more like a last grasp for air for Gov Perry’s tumble in the rankings when bringing up Mitt Romney’s landscaper.

Romney has a point, when you hire a company to work at your home, whether lawn care, home repair/remodel, you expect competent labor. How many people question the company’s hiring practice?

Romney has answered this attack many times, by stating he originally fired the company but did rehire them as a “2nd chance” only to have the same problem re-occur.

999 and other tax plans
Tax plans by the candidates should be constructed by Bobby “the Brain” Heenan.

Once again, Herman Cain proved me right from 2 weeks ago that his economic thought is one sided. To forgo the questions on State taxes as comparing ”apples to oranges” and only concerning himself with federal tax only makes his plan look more regressive.

And announced today, Gov. Perry is to release his “Federal” flat tax plan next week. Notice it’s called “Federal” for it does not work with the State tax laws. In other words, it’s just shy of Cain’s plan.

A few years ago, I wrote a whole blog on “Fair/Flat” tax and how no one can agree as to what that percentage should be set at (at the time it was discussed to be between 17%-24%.) Now it’s rumored that Perry’s plan will be a 17% “federal” flat tax, so once again using Cain’s model, and adding in the State & Local tax rates, people will pay between 23%-29% in total tax on item.

I agree the current tax laws need reformed, but when thinking of the small business owners, do either Cain or Perry know how many Tax Firms could be shuttered under their plan and how about those that have spent years working on their Accounting Degrees?

In other words, their plans will only add to an already overburdened Unemployment sector.

Yucca Mountain Repository
Well it sure ain’t Space Mountain WOOOO!

Back in August 2004, while honeymooning in Las Vegas, it just happened that both Pres W and his opponent Senator John Kerry were in town campaigning and it was the first time I ever heard of the YMR.

While reading the local newspapers, it was easy to read that the majority of Vegas town was completely against YMR, more for the case that spent fuel would have to be driven through town to reach its destination.

It’s also easy to say that YMR has been a debacle since it began and cost taxpayers roughly between $110-$140 billion in its over 20 year history. Drilling, blasting, security, construction costs all wasted for something that was never truly approved, yet begun before all information was accepted.

Obama care
This topic is like watching Mick Foley from the top of a Steel Cage.

When asked the question by Anderson Cooper “is there any part of Obama care you would not repeal?” all answered “No repeal the whole thing.” But there are parts of Obama care that is misrepresented by many.

CHiP program is not a form of Welfare, anyone with child can use CHiP and your monthly payment is determined by your household income.

Even if your company offers Health Insurance, what you pay for yourself can be modestly low, let’s say $30/paycheck for yourself. But under many plans, once you add a spouse or a child, the cost hits the roof. I won’t lie, when I was on Unemployment a few years back, we placed our son on ChiP, because if he were to go on my wife’s plan she would have paid 4x’s as much or basically working just for Health Insurance.

ChiP ranks your monthly payment by household income, so if a combined household income sits around $60k, you’ll pay more than a household bringing in $40K or less than a household bringing in $75k.

The other misrepresentation is done by everyone, that being keeping a son/daughter on your health plan until they are 26 yrs old and still in college. Most young adults are staying in school longer and working towards their Master’s Degree, possibly working Part Time somewhere as well.

Seriously, whose business is it anyway as to who or what my plan that I pay for is to anyone else? The government is not paying my health plan, I am as well as my company, therefore stay the f*ck out of my health plan and worry about your own family.

Yes, Obama care is not perfect, so why not fix what needs to be fixed. I believe Majority Leader Eric Cantor and Speaker John Boehner, along with a handful of Democrats have called for a “Fix” and not “Repeal” in the past.

Border Defense
I’d give this topic to Gov Perry because he has dealt with the topic for a decade, if not more, in Texas. As he said “It will take 10-15 years to complete a Southern Border fence” and not to mention the billions involved.

Way back in 2006, Pres W authorized appropriations to build 700 miles of Southern border fencing at a cost a little of $6 billion. Congress only ponied up about $1 billion. But that was only 700 miles out of 2,000!

Later on in 2006, the San Diego Fence Company was contracted by the US Government to begin building the border fence and within months was fined $5 million for hiring Illegal Immigrant to build the fence.

As Gov Perry claimed, more boots on the ground and drone flights may help. However, with all the attention on the Southern Border, there’s just as much activity along the Northern Border as well.

What we saw last night was a spectacle as 7 candidates (Huntsman skipped out in protest) fighting for their campaign’s life minus a steel cage and folding chairs.

Many of the candidates like Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich are just playing “spoiler” roles right now and in Newt’s case, it’s helping his merchandise sales tremendously.

The debate formats are definitely changing as the Primary calendar closes in. Audience involvement is up, candidates are getting feisty and the only thing missing is each candidate having their own intro music & pyrotechnics.

Just don’t let Rick Santorum walk out in complete Ric Flair ensemble!

Public Service Announcement: Debate Whammies ahead

It seems the GOP is really working hard to get the candidates as much television exposure as possible as there is a total 22 debate scheduled for this year and into 2012.

Either that or they are trying to push as many people into the fire because they just don’t trust Mitt Romney to lead them to victory.

Well the Media has really been helping the GOP push anyone and everyone other then Romney, yet those being pushed are faltering once they hit #2 in the polls. That’s evident as the Media keeps pushing Gov Perry even though he hit more potholes then the Pennsylvania turnpike could offer.

But with all these debates and Sunday show appearances, don’t some of these folks have day jobs?

Last I checked Ron Paul & Michelle Bachmann should be in Washington DC doing work on a mountain of legislation that needs to be completed, you know stuff like Jobs and the Economy to get America moving again.

Gov Rick Perry still holds office in Texas and do recall the governor telling his 2010 primary opponent, then Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson, that she should resign her position if she is to campaign because she won’t be doing anything in Washington. Hmm, following one’s own advice I see are we Ricky ol’ boy?

I want to help the voting public with this important decision of picking the right GOP candidate for 2012. With the help of, I will list multitude of scheduled debates so they do not interfere with everyone’s hectic life and TV viewing, because I know how important it is for people to see “Snookie Dancing with Hobos” or “Chuck Norris hunting Lesbian Kodiaks.”

So here’s the list of 22 known debates (some have already happened):

May 5- Fox News/South Carolina Republican Party, Greenville SC
June 13- CNN/New Hampshire Union Leader, Manchester NH
July 10- Daily Caller/American Tax Reform/Citizen Outreach Foundation, Las Vegas NV (postponed)
Aug 11- Fox News/Washington Examiner, Ames IA
Sept 5- Senator Jim DeMint/American Principle Project, Columbia SC
Sept 7- NBC News/Politico, Simi Valley CA
Sept 12- CNN/Tea Party, Tampa FL
Sept 22- Fox News/Google, Orlando FL
Oct 11- Bloomberg/Washington Post, Hanover NH
Oct 18- CNN/Western Republican Leadership Conference, Las Vegas NV (possibly postponed)
Nov 9- CNBC/Michigan Republican Party, Rochester MI
Dec 1- CNN/Republican Party of Arizona, Undisclosed location AZ
Dec 10- ABC News/Republican Party of Iowa, Des Moines IA
Jan 12- Des Moines Register/Iowa Public TV, Johnston IA
Jan 19- CNN/Southern Republican Leadership, Charleston, SC
Jan 26- CNN/Republican Party of Florida, Jacksonville FL
Jan 30- Fox News/Republican Party of Iowa, Des Moines, IA (to be rescheduled)
Jan 30- St Petersburg Times/NBC News, Tampa FL
Feb 7 or 13- ABC News/WMUR, Undisclosed location NH
Feb 19 or 27- FOX News/South Carolina Republican Party, Undisclosed location SC
Mar 5- NBC News/ Politico, Simi Valley, CA
Mar 19- NPR/PBS/Washington Times, Portland OR

Now, the next debate may not happen, since some of the candidates are taken a symbolic stance that if Nevada changes their primary date to happen before New Hampshire’s, they will boycott the debate. I seriously think they don’t want the debate because it’s on CNN and no one really watches CNN any longer.

But I believe these debates need something extra to make it worth our viewing choice. Sure we’ve had debate on the Economy, Foreign Policy, National Defense and so on, but it becomes stale and since those in attendance have become part of the excitement I say let’s change the format.

With the new crowd involvement, let’s add a game show host to the mix. I think Drew Carey can do better the CNN’s King or anyone from PBS. Seriously, exchange the boring podiums with the Price Is Right podiums and list each candidates budget savings plan amount under their name.

Or let’s introduce a huge debate wheel or Plinko! Board and have each candidate take a turn to see what their topic of discussion will be.

Personally I like the idea of Press your Luck and have the candidates hit a buzzer to answer. I could just see Newt Gingrich saying “No Whammies No Whammies” only to hit the “Whammy” and lose a turn to speak.

But one serious idea should be introduced and that is rearranging the candidates on stage at each debate.

Currently the Top 2 get the prime spots in front of the moderator, which is bogus because everyone sees them 75% of the time regardless if they are answering or not. So let the candidates pick numbers from a hat or at least play Rock Paper Scissors for the center podium. I wonder if the old Hollywood Squares set is available. I can hear John Huntsman saying “I’ll take Rick Santorum for the block Chris (Wallace).”

So last week’s debate was about the Economy and how each candidate’s plan is better than the others. And since that debate, Herman Cain’s “999” plan has gotten the most press, with its premise being “fair to all” and it (admittedly) will help the lower middle class and poor because “used goods can’t be taxed once they have been taxed.” In other words, Cain’s idea is to help the Economy is to turn consumer consumption into a Consignment Shop atmosphere.

Gov Rick Perry released his plan later in the week, going for the “Drill here, jobs here” plan, which would help more in Alaska and Texas with Big Oil contracts.

Ron Paul’s plan states “he can save $1 trillion by cutting 5 departments (including Energy, Education, Commerce), slashing the budget on other departments, add a balance budget, and cutting Obama care. Of course he never spoke of how all these cuts will affect and add to the Unemployment numbers.

And reports came out today that Mitt Romney’s economic plan is not far from if not equal to the current by Bowles-Simpson board proposal that was commissioned by Pres “O” and dumped by Congress. Remember that plan? There’s a reason very few do remember, because as soon as it came out, Rep Paul Ryan took center stage with his Budget Plan.

I’d tell you about Newt Gingrich’s economic plan, but you’ll have to buy one of his books or documentaries first before being privy to that information.

With all these debates and many Sunday show appearances, the voting public is getting tired and worrisome about what a future GOP president plans to do. And of that future president, it seems rather clear that the mass majority in the GOP do not want a Romney presidency at any cost.

So how will the masses react if they do get a Romney presidency? They’ll embrace it as if they had his back the whole time.

After all, “No Whammies, No Whammies, No Whammies” is not a good campaign slogan.

Herman Cain: The Media's "Mr. October" Darling

Wow, Herman Cain is moving on up the GOP “wanna-be” polls and has officially become October’s Media darling with all the catchphrase and witty one liners, he’s the male version of Sarah Palin.

You Betcha’ the Media has Palinized Herman Cain.

So why is Herman Cain rising to the top tier? Three simple reasons

The first reason is simple in that people are tired of the bickering between Romney and Perry. Schoolyard antics are tiresome to constituents of “he said he said,” especially in the last few weeks when two prominent Perry-backers have 1) (Rev Jeffries) attack Romney’s religion as a cult and 2) (Al Baldaraso (NH-R}) applauded those that booed a gay soldier during the FOX debate, giving Romney an opening to attack Perry.

Secondly, Cain has the backing of the Koch Bros.

Thirdly, the Media and constituent misconception of the Herman Cain “9-9-9” plan. On paper, sure it sounds wonderful. Economically, it’s a consumer land mine.

The 1/3 of the “9-9-9” plan sounds understandable, that being adjusting corporate tax to 9% in hopes that all Corporations pay their tax and not lobby for loopholes or other forms of "Tax Holidays." There’s really no need to digest more of this part of the plan becasue with the amount Corporations put into Lobbying Congress, it's a pipe dream.

The Second “9” of slashing Personal Income Tax is a hurdle that won’t happen. Income Tax is all about revenue and slashing revenue will not stop Government from spending what is not there.

Those at higher incomes, the Warren Buffets & Bill Gates of the US live off their investments then their paychecks. So it’s more pocketed then spent, since the wealthier aren’t spending as much as in previous decades.

Now the third “9” is what has people all in a rage, a 9% National sales tax. Once again, it’s the misconception of “fair” as the bottom 25% income bracket spends 90% of their paychecks as the top 1% currently spend around 7% of theirs.

Herman Cain said himself, “Look at it this way, once something has been taxed it cannot be taxed again, so it will be easier for someone to buy a used car or used clothes.” That’s true as I’ve blogged prior, Used Car sales have been steadily rising as people find Used Car Lots more accepting then the traditional car dealership.

Simple thought is that New Car sales will continue to drop under the Cain plan, more than presently due to Banks giving out fewer loans.

But there is another thought to Cain’s Nat’l Sales Tax I have yet to read by any so-called expert, something of which I am not but looked into.
No one is talking about how the States will react to such a deal and how current State Sales tax is added into the Nat’l Sales tax proposal.

Cain’s idea of a “9% National Sales Tax” is only fair in term only. Many people believe that’s all they’ll pay, yet they forget that their State & Locality Sales tax will still be accounted for. And don’t think that States and/or Locality will jump at the chance to increase their Sales tax as well.

For example; In Alabama, the current State sales tax is around 4%, but depending upon which city or county you are in, that 4% can rise as high as 12%. So with Cain’s NST, one will pay 21% in total Sales tax on item.

Now in a State such as Alaska which does not have a State sales tax, it’s the municipality (all 62 of them) that imposes a 7% sales tax on item. So with Cain’s NST, one would pay 16% in total Sales tax.

But State sales taxes aren’t that straight forward.

Arkansas’ State sales tax sits at 6%, with an additional 2% for food sales tax, plus an additional 6.5% for locality and that’s a possible 14.5%. Then add in Cain’s NST and the consumer is paying 23.5% total Sales tax.

In the President’s adoptive State of Illinois, there is a State tax of 6.25%, plus certain foods & prescription drugs can add an additional 1% Sales tax. Yet, depending on the Locality would determine another Sales tax which can be as high as 11.5% and all of a sudden you’re paying close to 27% on item.

I’m not going go through the Sales Tax of each State and their localities, however the point being there’s more to Herman Cain’s 9% National Sales Tax then the experts and constituents are thinking about.

It’s easier to be more poor then wealthy in today’s economy, yet it’s ones perception of “wealth” that must be determined. I don’t believe someone making $100K is wealthy, but someone making $1Mil is well off.

What Cain’s NST will affect is those living on fixed incomes, such as Grandma & Grandpa, working college students, the working single parent and so on. Contrary to many beliefs, these groups still pay taxes in one form or another, it’s the Federal income tax they do not.

If you look at South Carolina’s state tax of 6%, plus an additional 1-2% for locality, well that sounds pretty sweet. However I was shocked when I read that Seniors 85 years of age or older pay an additional 5% in Sales tax. The largest group of fixed income Americans living today has to pay more in tax due to age! So with Cain’s NST, that’s 21% a Senior citizen would have to pay Sales tax on item.

It always amazes me how people react to words spoken by someone they love/hate. Take for instance the Payroll tax. Currently employees are paying 2% less in Social Security tax (4.2%) while their employer still pays the normal 6.2%. By the January 2012, unless Congress actually does their job, employees will return to 6.2% tax. That’s a 2% increase; no matter how you look at it, but how many Americans actually saw that 2% increase in their paycheck?

Now, depending on who is speaking, Republicans make it sound like a return to normalcy by letting the payroll tax return. Yet, the Democratic rebuttal floats like a lead balloon.

Now when President Obama talks about ending the Bush Tax Cuts (or are they the Obama tax cuts now?) and a return to Clinton era numbers, Republicans shout “that’s a tax increase,” yet in reality it’s a return to normalcy. But the majority of Americans see it as an increase.

An increase is an increase; there is nothing normal about our federal government.

Until Herman Cain actually divulges the entire “9-9-9” plan with Economic mathematics, everything about the plan is speculation. One thing that is not speculation will be how it affects the American consumer and who spends the most of their paycheck.

We are a Consumer Nation, if someone wants to do something, then let’s have a Consumer Tax Holiday between Thanksgiving and Christmas, then we’ll see consumption grow.

However, if I go by Cain’s earlier statement, well then look for “Big Poppa’s Used Consumer Goods” store in your city under a Herman Cain presidency, I won’t be able to tax you but I can manipulate the price.

**correction: South Carolina state tax for Seniors is listed incorrectly. Seniors 85 or older pay 5% sales tax, not an additional 5% as listed in the article. My apologies, as I was ranting as I was blogging**

Weekend political tryst makes the pundit feel “cheap & dirty”

Across America, Media and disenfranchised Republican hearts have been broken, for this month’s Media darling New Jersey Gov Chris Christie has told all that he will not seek a 2012 Presidential Campaign.


One part of me is happy he is not running, yet the other side is upset.
I like Gov Christie and no it ain’t a Fat guy routing for a Fat guy kind of like. No I like him for his honesty. He tells you how it is and will work with all to get to the goal. He understands that his State is in peril when he took over, and has worked with opposition to meet agreements.

After all, anyone who tells Legislation, constituents and Media to “Shut Up” over Shari Law rumor stupidity as he named Muslim-American Sohail Mohamed to Jersey’s state bench, gets huge praise from me.

Yet the Media put forth all their resources over the weekend to push him to the top of every news hour. Late night talk shows wrote monologue after monologue about him. Hell, the Media is started a whole conversation about the obese are unfit to run for office.

And yet, after having their hearts broken, it took them all of 10 hours to start their “Sarah Palin” watch and return to their favorite whimsical hopeful.

And little over 24 hours later, the Media had their hearts crushed again as Sarah Palin has decided to sit out. I told you so for over a year that Palin will not run for President as she enjoys being Sarah Palin “the celebrity” for all its perks and luxury. Plus, as I have stated as well, Palin cannot handle criticism and breaks down when the news is not in her favor and being a candidate as well as President is a 24/7 criticism roller coaster.

So now, the Media must find another darling amongst the congested candidates or look towards pushing someone’s name such as Jeb Bush or Bobby Jindal into the fire.

The Media has a problem for they can’t work with what’s been given them. And it makes one wonder if those that are staying away are just looking forward to 2016 when it’s a clear field on both sides.
Since Bill Clinton’s surprised emergence 1992, the Media has been looking for a “darling” amongst the political masses, as the Media never saw Clinton becoming the nominee.

In 2000, both VP candidates Joe Lieberman and Dick Cheney were surprised choices by Al Gore and George W Bush. Why were they surprises? Lieberman was also in the midst of a re-election campaign for Senate and Cheney was the man behind the scene vetting all of W’s VP choices. The Media hit the wall wondering what their so-called experts had missed.

John Edwards became the Media darling in 2004 after running a semi successful Presidential run with his “Two Americas” theme and heartwarming stories of life from the bottom up. He then took the VP spot to help the emotionally boring John Kerry with some youth and excitement to the campaign.

Let’s not forget how the Media swooned over a then National political newcomer in Barrack Obama during the Democratic convention.

The Media jumped abroad Mike Huckabee in 2008, when he began to surge in polls and of course the Media felt like the fat kid picked last when John McCain chose Alaska’s Sarah Palin for the #2 spot. Once again asking their political experts how they missed Palin on the political corner.

So here we are in 2011 with the Media having fling after booty call fling with everyone they think could or will run for the GOP nomination. Bachmann, Trump, Perry and others have been left by the Media waiting by the phone with every new entry.

When Rep Michelle Bachmann announced, it took TIME magazine only a week to get her in, err, on the cover only to turn her into the last call when feeling needy.

There was Donald “Whore” Trump’s running-only-for-ratings semi campaign. FOX News couldn’t wait to get their sleazy hands and give him a contract as a political hack. And once again, many hearts were broken as they believed the hype the Media dealt that Trump could be the Prom King.

The Media became a fickle bunch for they had named everyone from Mitch Daniels to Jon Huntsman and back to Bachmann as the #1 choice in polls, praying that constituents will keep coming back for more for a spin.

When Texas Gov Rick Perry was set to announce his bid, the Media dropped their pants, bent over and plastered his likeness everywhere. So far, Gov Perry has had the Media waking up and wondering “did we really do that?” and stumbling for the door.

Someone really needs to get the Media a large HIV Test kit for all the bed hopping they’ve done in the 2012 campaign so far.

And with his current surge in polls, I say to Herman Cain “Be Careful,” for the Media has already written your name on the bathroom stall for next weekend’s political booty call.

Better keep the spin doctor on speed dial with shot in hand.
