Month: April 2016

The Shame Sticks To You Like ____________

We’ll file this Saturday afternoon (April 16, 2016) interview with Monica Lewinsky under battlestation prep. They tried to rehabilitate Lewinsky last year with some Ted Talks about how she was the first victim of internet bullying which is a newsflash to anyone who had ever engaged in a discussion with anyone else on the internet prior to 1998.

In comes the Guardian to try and wipe off Lewinsky’s stain from the front of Hillary’s Mao Tse Tung housecoats:

“That people could read the transcripts was horrific enough,” Lewinsky said in her TED talk, “but a few weeks later the audio tapes [the telephone calls Tripp secretly recorded] were aired on TV, and significant portions made available online. The public humiliation was excruciating. Life was almost unbearable.”

“I felt like every layer of my skin and my identity were ripped off of me in ’98 and ’99,” she tells me now. “It’s a skinning of sorts. You feel incredibly raw and frightened. But I also feel like the shame sticks to you like tar.”

So the publicity of the Tripp transcripts coming out installed an, heretofore, unknown feeling of “shame” into Ms. Lewinsky that was not present as she was having sex with a married man who happened was faceblasting her with his presidential payload while on her knees upon the eagle carpeting of the Oval Office.

The transcript coming out is when the shame happened. Everything up to that point was enough to make a Daddy proud.

Lewinsky talking about how shame “sticks” to you could easily fill a library of regrettable similes. All of the abuse she’s had to swallow because she didn’t swallow. But she controls the narrative now, America.

This rehabilitated cumdumpster is going to recycle your insults and sort them into color coded baskets to be harnessed for some useful purpose. Please wash your milky, white tar shame out of any containers before tossing them at the trash can of her life.

She’s developed an entire line of text message “anti-bullying” hug emojis for Vodafone. I am totally not shitting you.

It ends with her and the Guardian writer watching Trump on tv talking about how he’s going to drag her into the campaign as “fair game” to attack Clinton. Which it is.

She’s mad at Trump. The “unmistakable yellow blob” as he’s referred to in the anti-bullying / anti-shaming piece. Will he get an emoji? She’s not mad at Hillary who referred to her as a deranged stalker knowing full well that it was her hubby stalking the husky aisle at Lane Bryant for off-the-rack hoe bags.

But again. This is just prep work for Hillary. She took a round to the chest for Bill and 20 years later she’s going to take another one on the chin for her boyfriend’s wife.

Professional Outsider Seeks Career Insider

Pretzel logic from the carnival barker:

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump said he is “95 percent” sure he would pick a veteran politician for vice president if elected.

He said he would choose “somebody that can walk into the Senate and who’s been friendly with these guys for 25 years, and people for 25 years and can get things done” in an extensive interview with The Washington Post published Saturday.

How does one stay in Congress for 25 years and not be an establishment sell-out? Or the scumbag lobbyist who pays people off for quid pro quos? I’ve been told that Ted Cruz had been there for half a term and that all-of-the-sudden it’s his GOPe ™! If there’s one thing we don’t want it’s that “insider” Cruz who no one likes.

We want that for real insider who can harness his legendary compromising skills that got us 19 trillion dollars in debt in the first place.

Who would this be? Gingrich? Sessions? Kasich? Grassley? DeMint? DeLay? Hatch? Boehner? McConnell? Barbour? Alexander?

Who are these great, elder statesmen of the Republican Party with 25 year, highly overrated track records for “getting things done”? If they’re older than Trump, they’d leave no succession plan in place in the event he won.

Because I can’t think of one that is worth a damn and would shore up skeptical conservatives or not bring on more baggage. None from that list strike me as a game changer.

No former Congressmen turned Governors would seem to fit that description. Pence, Brownback, Snyder, Hutchison, Scott.

Obviously, this would be guided by Black, Manafort, Stone, and Kelly at this point. So someone on their roster that they’ve been lobbying during the last two decades. A known quantity.

Unfortunately, that would be everybody from Bush loyalists, to John McCain, to Jack Abramaoff, to a number of African dictatorships, and a slew of other questionable clients.

And the intellectually dishonest can continue to pretend that Roger Stone wasn’t working for Trump when he was peddling smut on Cruz to the Enquirer when Stone’s own firm was hired as Trump’s delegate counter a week later.

I’d say Trump drafting some old Republican bull to work out some magical deal would be a non-starter for supporters so wed to being an outsider but cults of personality don’t require intellectual consistency.

In other words, what a great idea! This all presupposes that he’s talking about bringing on a Republican as a VP.
