So the Republicans are now the party of civil rights, which is no doubt why they've been going on for decade after decade about states' rights and southern heritage and southern strategies and how the Confederate flag is great and putting up billboards warning minorities not to vote and … you know what? I don't even have the energy. And from the looks of the ad, neither do they. A look at the Super PAC in question suggests that they may be an exceedingly low-budget group of lily-white crazy people trying to influence the election via a steady stream of stock photos and bullshit, which hardly seems to fit the purpose of being a Super PAC, which is to be a high-budget group of lily-white crazy people trying to influence the election via a steady stream of stock footage and bullshit. They're degrading the meaning of the word "Super." Stephen Colbert needs to sue these people for making a mockery of our God-and-SCOTUS-given American system of bullshit.
Next up: how Latinos should vote for Mitt Romney because he's, like, practically Mexican if you think about it the right way. No—I think we already did that one? I can't remember.
Next Tuesday. We just have to retain our sanity until next Tuesday. Wednesday, tops. Except next it'll be the lame duck session, when we get to find out why Abraham Lincoln would want us to screw over old people so that rich people can get better tax breaks. Oh, I can hardly wait to see the ads for that one.
Please give the president a boost by donating to help him close strong in the final days of this campaign.
