Buckaroo Banzai vs. The World Crime League

McCain and Obama

I could barely watch the “deate” last night. Quotes are required as no “debate” ever transpires in these joint public appearances. It’s a “Beauty Contest” all the way with Image Over Substance at every step. If you’re my age you doubtless recall the Kennedy-Nixon “debate” in which JFK’s handsome youthfulness trounded “Tricky Dick’s ” five o’clock shaodow, despite the fact that he had little of any real significance to say. This time out Obama’s composed cool won out over McCain’s rude smugness verging on angry explosion. One was expecting him to pop a vein any moment. In fact no less a meat puppet eminence than Tweety Matthews was astonished by McCain’s adamant refusal to so much as glance at Obama.

If you have a mother like mine then you know such behavior is unconscionable. But as he and his bought-and-paid-for media whores never cease to remind us, John McCain is a “War Hero” and therefore not subjec to the rules that govern the rest of us.

Or so they and he imagine.

How McCain actually came off as a “Separated at Birth” from Dr. Emilio Lizardo

Barack Obama, meanwhile, maintained the composed cool of that suavest of all biracial superheroes
Buckaroo Banzai.

What Lord John Worfin McCain fails to realize is what Barack Banzai throughly understands — “No matter where you go — there you are.”

    I can even see McCain utter Lizardo’s famous line “Laugh while you can, Monkey Boy!”. Doesn’t McCain give off the “Hey kids, get off my fucking lawn!” vibe? Also, Palin was hanging in a bar while all this was going on. Nothing like acting as if you’re back home, but just far enough away to dodge the subpoenas. The SNL sketch writes itself (most of the better ones have to).

    Indeed it does. And so do the jokes: “A moose walked into a bar and said “I’ll have a Sarah Palin.” The bartender said “What’s that?” to which the moose replied “Vodka and Crystal Meth — with an exorcism to go.”

    That witchcraft story was just the one too many that made me believe that not only did they have to travel to the wastelands of trailer-park Earth to find her, but time-traveled her from the days of the Inquisition. She’s so creepy due to her utterly slimy, pious vacuousness. Still, I laugh at the jokes made at her expense, Really, it’s all I have left. I still think that McCain, in one of his fugue states, looked at her picture and said, “I’d tap that”, and was misunderstood by his aides, and by the time it was announced, it was too late to do anything about it.

    “Conservatives” are currently suffering from a very bad case of “Buyer’s Remorse.”

    As are Alaskans, apparently. Self-immolation is never pretty.
