About Goddamn Time

Town Hall

 "Governor; Sit Down": Richie Rich, Not Happy With Being Told What To Do

I'm not an O-Bot; I'm a Dog, no matter what the Banner this week looks like. But I will not seek, nor will I accept, another replay of the go-go, Lil' Boots' Bush years.

That said, does Obama's team finally understand that, 'independents' aside, what Democrats nationally had to see -- nay; have been begging for, is a show of fire and spine?

I mean, it's one thing to stand out in the snow and sing "The Internationale" until the Cossacks show up. We'll do that. But it's hard going without seeing the embodiment of (albeit tainted) resistance providing a public (albeit failed) enema to the embodiment of the 0.01%. 
MALONE: You said you wanted to get Capone. Do you really wanna get him? You see, what I'm saying is: What are you prepared to do?
NESS: Anything within the law.
MALONE: And then what are you prepared to do? If you open this can of worms, you must be prepared to go all the way. Because they're not gonna give up the fight -- until one of you is dead.
NESS: I want to get Capone! I don't know how to do it.
MALONE: You wanna know how to get Capone? They pull a knife, you pull a gun. He sends one of yours to the hospital; you send one of his to the morgue. That's the Chicago way! And that's how you get Capone. Now; do you want to do that? Are you ready to do that? I'm offering you a deal. Do you want this deal?
NESS: I have sworn to capture this man with all legal powers at my disposal and I will do so.
MALONE: [Sighs] Well... the Lord hates a coward. [offers NESS his hand; NESS shakes it] Do you know what a blood oath is, Mr. Ness?
NESS: Yes.
MALONE: Good, 'cause you just took one.

MEHR:  Mitzy's son, Tagg, one of his father's closest campaign advisers, told a conservative talk-show host in North Carolina (are there any other kinds, down there?) said that he would have liked to "take a swing" at the President during the Tuesday debate when Obama suggested that candidate Romney had some teensy issues with telling the truth.
“You want to rush down the debate stage and take a swing at him but you know you can’t do that because, well first cause there is a lot of secret service between you and him,” Tagg Romney said of what he would have liked to during the presidential debate earlier this week.

“This is the nature of the process,” the Romney son said, who sounded jovial in his remarks. “You know they are going to do everything they can to try to make my dad into someone he’s not. We signed up for it. We gotta kinda sit there and take our punches, and then send them back the other way.”

A campaign aide later told ABC News that Tagg Romney’s remarks were all in jest.
 These are the kinds of comments that spilled easily from the mouth of "Lil' Boots" Bush, either as a candidate or as the appointed President. 

Tagg's comments were of course echoed by his brothers Gnargn, Horst, Heber, Reinhard and Fluke.
