Tanked

Going down? Don't you wish. ...

Going down? Don’t you wish. …

Sounds like Insane Clown Pussy achieved his usual level last night.

I’d be delighted to report that his performance in the final presidential “debate” will sink him, but fat turds float, and I expect this one will continue to bob around in the national crapper for the better part of quite some time.

Frankly, it seems unflushable. I’d say sell the house, but who’d want to buy with that thing spoiling every showing? Can we just wall it off with bricks the way Montresor did Fortunato? Pretend it’s not there? Do our business outside if need be?

Shit.

Anyone who was surprised that ICP refused to say he’d take his beating like a man has not been paying attention. He’s not a man. He’s not even a small-d democrat. He’s a two-bit totalitarian. And those dudes don’t go down without a vigorous flushing, and maybe a bit of elbow grease. OK, a lot of elbow grease.

Sadly, rather than get busy with the plunger, however distasteful a chore that may be, some of our fellow Americans insist on splashing around in there with him.

Insane Clown Pussy may be circling the bowl, but his stink will be with us for a while yet. Somebody light a match.

    The electorate must show up, with record participation and flush that turd. Otherwise he will hang around for years with his nose under the tent. And record participation is over 70% of eligible voters, not the pathetic showing of the last 20 years.

  2. Larry T Says:

    “Overall, TargetSmart found that 42.6 percent of the new voters registered this year lean Democratic, and only 29 percent lean Republican (28.4 percent lean independent).”

    This makes me wonder how-in-the-hell the greasy orange turd is as close as he is to Billary in the polling? Trump supporters should just skip voting as it’s all rigged anyway, according to their fuhrer.

  3. Patrick O'Grady Says:

    I’m starting to think MoJo’s Kevin Drum has it about right: You can get 40 percent of the electorate to go for just about anything.

    “Build a wall of deported Meskins!” Forty percent.

    “Lock her up! And them, too!” Forty percent.

    “Only I know where Bill Clinton’s penis has been!” Forty percent.

    A solid, record-setting repudiation at the polls would be a nice start toward a solution, but I wonder how many people are going to go third party or just stay home.

    Bravo, Patrick!
    Safety warning for cleanup – remember don’t mix ammonia and bleach.

    My wife has been a technical support person at a local polling place (largely African American precinct) for 4 election cycles. This year she declined to participate, fearing that some of the ICP nutcase poll watchers would disrupt things.

    • Pat O'Brien Says:

      That is a shame. Reasonable perhaps, but still a shame. Chapeau to your wife for her volunteer work. She sure has paid more than her share in supporting our democracy.

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      What Pat said. I always make a point of thanking the folks working the polling places. Keeping the creaky electoral machinery oiled and cranking along ain’t no day at the beach.

  7. Larry T Says:

    3rd hand story – a local cop (and cyclist) told my friends at our LBS that while casting his ballot the other day, he overheard some yokel ask, “So when do you open our ballots and change ’em?”
    This is the rancid stench that will be left behind when/if Drumpf loses the election, especially now that he’s pretty much declared he’ll consider the vote legitimate only if HE wins.

    • JD Dallager Says:

      Several comments above are a sad commentary on the trust and confidence in our electoral process. That said, Im not so convinced that it’s so much at the Presidential level as it is at the Congressional level. All politics are local.

      If the Congress had to publish (not that it could ever agree on that) a 2 year strategic plan of what it intended to accomplish, its priorities, and how it measured up against those, I’m convinced no one would ever “invest” in them. On the other hand, imagine being one of those elected officials at the national level and trying to actually achieve a consensus on where our Nation needed to move……probably quite frustrating and deemed a bridge too far.

      I’m also convinced that unfortunately even those who read/understand history are doomed to repeat it. We seem to be they.

      A tragedy on several fronts.

      As an aside, atleast one Native American culture espoused the sanctity of the number 7. Always make your decisions in the best interest of 7 generations from now. Would that we were so wise.

      Food for thought and comment.

      • Pat O'Brien Says:

        I am confident in and trust the election process. I’m amazed that people with so many guns can be so afraid. Like Patrick said earlier, Kevin Drum may be right that you can get 40% of the people to believe almost anything. Especially if you tell them exactly what they want to hear. Which is essentially what the Dumpster has done since day one of the primary elections. Doing some basic math on the turnouts for the republican primary elections, states with closed primaries, and those with caucuses, and you end up with about 10% of the registered electorate voting for the Dumpster. He has probably lost some of those along the way. I can’t imagine anything but a landslide for Billiary. I just hope she drags all the down ballot races with her. But if the Dems get the majority in both houses and the white house and then shut the republicans out of the process of governing, then the country loses again. We simply need people up there who can work together, put the country first, and look more than two years ahead. I voted early this morning, so I will now shut up.
        Time to take the Niner to Brown Canyon. Gliding along on Reynolds 853 steel is good for the soul.

      • Carl Duellman Says:

        i had one of those steel niners for a while. root beer brown. definitely took the rough edges of my bad attitude. unfortunately it cracked right through the rear drop out. it was unfortunately out of warranty. i was bummed. keep an eye on yours.

      • Pat O'Brien Says:

        Thanks for the tip, Carl. I will continue to keep an eye on it. Mine is a Magic Carpet Ride model and is also root beer brown. All the components came from a Gary Fisher Ferrous 29 that rode nice but the seat stays bowed out and my heels would hit them occasionally. Plus, if you got in any mud the back tire would jam up in the bottom bracket area with caked mud. Barely had room for a 2.1 inch tire. Pulled all the components off, put them on the new Niner, and sold the frame at a GABA bike swap meet in Tucson. Been riding the Niner about 6 years now.

      • Larry T Says:

        The CNN guy Fareed Zakaria was here this week with an interesting take on politics in the USA. His claim is taking the money out of politics is key. Congress-critters need to start raising $$ on the first day they’re sworn-in. To get the dough they need to appeal to the rabid base – the extremists in their party. If they don’t, they get “primary’d” out like Eric Cantor. Public financing and non-gerrymandered congressional districts could fix a whole lot – which is why it won’t happen since Koch Bros and their ilk would no longer be able to use their wealth to control the political process. With some luck Billary’s Supreme Court choices might eventually get a chance to overturn Citizens United…but sadly that’s just a start.

      • Dale Says:

        To Larry T,
        Eric Cantor was not someone I would ever vote for, but he was steamrollered by a Tea Party know-nothing candidate. I would rather see a Dem replace him, but if not, Cantor is at least a reasonable alternative for Virginia – and perhaps chastened a bit now.

    Here is an article, from Patrick’s old work place, about the laws on election observers in Arizona. I don’t think trumpeteers will be an issue here.
