Sarah Palin, and the impossibility to decipher stupidity.

By RF Schatten


After a 35 minutes speech before a Conservative Republican crowd...and a throng of batshit Tea Party fans...Sarah just stood there with her big bright shiny smile, proudly waving and thinking to herself; "I hit it out of the ballpark!!" Everybody else; "WTF!!" "What the hell did she say??" Confusion with her text?...why even think about it, it's Sarah Palin!

When Conservative columnist Toby Harnden, called Palin’s speech, “Bizarro”...you knew how terrible it must've gone for the rest of the press to listen!...suffering through 35 minutes of Palin mutilating her prose at the Steve King Iowa Freedom Summit...it's just impossible to decipher stupidity, give up folks!

Now, the Hockey Mom appears to be seriously thinking of joining the 2016 Thousand Clowns Show...and putting her hat and red clown nose into the ring. It's a pipe dream for the Democrats...but it would make it a hilariously funny primary season...the queen of batshit statements, and she can even drive the clown car!
Albert Einstein once said; "The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits". In Sarah Palin's case, there are no limits...whenever you hear something absurd out of her mouth, remember!...you haven't heard nothing yet!

The Republican Fear: Obama at his most dangerous...being himself!

By RF Schatten


Pow!! It was the ultimate "Fuck You" political knockout punch!...what made it so exciting? and why the country, and especially the Democrats, feel a sense of resurgence?...it's about time, Barack!!  In fact, it's been about 6 years coming!

6 years of blatant systematic use of hatred, indecent mockery, disrespect, and obstructionism by the Republican Party...ever since the plans were concocted a couple of hours after the 2008 elections, they chose the Low Road of politics...Obama chose High Road. "I won both of them"...Barack Obama's knockout response beat Jon Stewart, Bill Maher, John Oliver, and Larry Wilmore to the punch!...and his "Star" quality is back on the rise!

Now that he's 'done' campaigning, he's a much more relaxed man and there's no one in politics today...other than Bill Clinton...who's better attracting and communicating with the public, when just being himself. His interviews on talk shows and off the cuff with the news media, are the media buzz all over TV and the Net immediately following the interviews or the next morning. What can you say? the man is a very likable and affable gentleman ...that's why he won them both!!

With his popularity on the rise in the polls, and a disloyal opposition scratching their heads while trying to figure out what they're doing wrong...it's Obama's turn to shine, and drive Conservative America more batshit crazy than they already are! With the Internet, the major factor and the strength that got him elected both times...it 'was' the appropriate medium to begin his journey to sell his message for the final 2 years...talking directly to the people is what he does best! The Presidential YouTube Interview, was the start...3 separate, back-to-back interviews in the East Room of the White House with 3 young Internet bloggers, fielding questions from Weed, to Race Relations, to Cyber-bullying, and even SportsCenter!

The answers to all the questions weren't that surprising, though a little revealing at times...but it was the style, that cool demeanor...though frustrating at times to his supporters, has served him well...his ability to express himself in non-political layman terms with the public...but above all, his charm and his attraction with the young and their cultures. Being a dad of 2 teenage girls, keeps him aware of what's happening in their world...in more ways than one!

Summation? Barack Obama is going to make life miserable for the GOP the next 2 years, because they're going to give him everything they've been fighting not to give him. Why? because they have nothing to offer, and now that they're the majority...it's an embarrassment not to accomplish anything whatsoever, after promising the country that they do can a better job than the Democrats.  And on January, 2017...when he leaves office. ..as much as he's disliked by certain sectors of America, his final approval ratings in the polls will certainly still be higher than George W's 22%!...Pow!!

Republican SOTU Rebuttals...in Quest for Weirdness

By RF Schatten


"When the going gets weird, the weird turn Pro" ~~~ Hunter S Thompson

In keeping with recent tradition, the Republican's latest response to the State of the Union Address was spinned, by yet another Tea Party or Tea leaning politico. Whether picked by committee or Reince Priebus, himself! the paramount trait of today's Grand Old Party...that looney batshit mindset...was again, in full force. When will they realize, they're an embarrassment to the common sense in their Republican constituency? An embarrassment as a political party in front of the world!...and we're supposed to be setting an example of a Democracy we're trying to peddle to others around the world??

From the cheaply amateurish performance by Bobby Jindal, to the sweaty and thirsty longest 3 minutes of Mr. Aquafina's career!...'this' is what the GOP pushes around the globe via the news media...and show the world why they won the hearts of America and took control of Congress! In response to their response...to the rest of this planet...not all Americans are morons!

Enter the next clown in the GOP hit parade...the Hawkeye State's most famous "Pig Castrator" Joni Ernst!...Iowa's version of Michelle Bachmann, and most likely successor to her title of "Welfare Queen".

In our last impression of a political 'speaker'...a water bottle was the star of the night...all the media sound bytes and the Twitter world focused on the weirdness, and amateur political speech. Now, is poor kids using "Bread Bags" to cover their only pair of shoes! and the sad story of poor little Joni...the Republican's attempt to win the hearts and minds of Americans who believe the GOP is harming them.

While mentioning how dirt poor she was...she never mentioned that her family accepted welfare and food stamps as a kid. And no mention whatsoever that the Ernst’s family received nearly a half-million dollars in government handouts...$460,000 to be exact. Dad Richard Culver received $38,395, uncle Dallas Culver received $370,000...payments targeted toward subsidizing farms with taxpayer funds. This, from a woman who favors cutting welfare and tax subsidies for others, but touch hers? never!...a la Bachmann. Being anti “Federal Government Subsidies” was a major issue and factor in her winning that Senate seat election.

Her performance? the overwhelming review around the world, like the previous Tea darlings'...amateurish, a poor speaker representing the Republican Party again...and very weird! Weirdness just runs in their blood!

John McCain's attempt to define his Legacy...or is it, to re-define it?

By RF Schatten


How do you successfully define a Legacy, when your whole public and private life has been one long news media reality show?...and not necessarily, all that successful!

Poor John McCain!...he finally got that Senate Chairmanship he craved for all these years...yet, his insecurity on how people perceive him now, in the September of his political career, has become a matter of desperation. You may not give a rat's ass when your young...because you're so invincible!...but as you grow older and wiser, you'll probably look back with some regrets and try find some ways of redeeming yourself. A National Campaign to define his legacy?...or is it, to "re-define" his legacy?

The Maverick's Legacy? He graduated from Annapolis...like his father and grandfather...but unlike those 2 Admirals, he graduated 894th out of 899 Midshipmen in his class. He went on to Pensacola for flight training, where he was known as a "reckless and careless" hotshot flyer and a party guy...not unusual for a military brat...and then came Vietnam, where he crashed 2 jets and another one that burned during a fire on the deck of the Forrestal, where 134 men died...and even once, he collided with power lines. That bad luck ended and another one began, when he was shot down by a missile over Hanoi!

More legacy? how about his personal character! This is the loving husband and father who moonlighted as a philanderer. Instead of staying in the Navy, he resigned in order to start a Political career...now that his POW fame brought him celebrity status. But it also brought out his arrogance and showed what kind of human piece of shit he truly was. With a wife that was left severely crippled by an auto accident...John Boy felt she wasn't the proper wife, a successful politico needs to have. She wasn't 'attractive' enough!...as his ex-wife said, politely as possible; "‘My marriage ended because John McCain didn't want to be 40, he wanted to be 25".

Numerous personal and family acquaintances  portray the politician as a self-centered womanizer who effectively abandoned his crippled wife to ‘play the field’. They accuse him of finally settling on Cindy, who's filthy rich, for financial reasons and to further his political career. When you're making $25k per year in the Navy, and your new father-in-law is a multimillionaire with political influence...what are you waiting for? take advantage and play the Game of Politics! what else?

Political Legacy? He could have won the Democrats' support and votes as that "Maverick"...before he declared he's a Right Wing Conservative to grab the Tea Lovers' votes, instead. He's been a little of everything to everybody...appealing to Liberals and Progressives, appealing to the Far Right, and all of this while declaring to be a "Mainstream" Conservative Republican.

John Sidney McCain III may want to define his Legacy as a great War Hero, a great Military Strategist, great Foreign Relations understanding, and the greatest US Senator from Arizona...greater than Barry Goldwater!

His Legacy? Understanding this man's intelligence, and why he ranked 894th in his class...he selected Sarah Palin! Enough said?

Democrats Finding Their Identity...like Waiting for Godot

By RF Schatten


"One man alone can be pretty dumb sometimes, but for real bona fide stupidity...there ain't nothin' can beat teamwork" ~~~ Edward Abbey

Yes! historically, the party of disorganization, the party that Will Rogers proudly called his own!...broke tradition, and literally unified themselves against the party's standard bearer, their Leader...and sat out the Elections! What did they gain? Zilch! Zero! Nada!

There's no crying in politics...don't cry, if you don't vote...Democrats got all they deserved! When a political party that almost outnumbers their opponent nationally 2-1, loses...don't look for factors explaining why they lost...they lost because they didn't put out the vote!

It's the fault of the Voters for playing couch potato aficionados...and the fault of the Party for sitting around on their asses all year in Congress, and throughout the country...doing absolutely nothing, afraid to say anything or strongly take any position, all in fear of losing their seats...while allowing all the Conservative horseshit rhetoric go unanswered, instead of hitting back!

The media is constantly inundated with stories involving the Republican Circus Show and their tea loving kissing cousins running their own Batshit Freakshow...pretty much using up virtually every available second of sound-byte on TV! Where have the Democrats hit back on all the bullshit?...they created their own apathy!...and it's why many of their voters turned their backs on them.

Democrats just won't get down and dirty, and they won't fight back either!...it's that youthful liberal idealism, that flashes back now and then on many Donkeys...taking the proverbial high road...while the GOP continues their winning wicked ways.

Now, for a little shock of reality...Obama's ratings, according to the latest Gallup Polls have "Skyrocketed"....with his Job Approval ratings showing more people approving than disapproving the way he's running the country. Republicans will naturally, find another of their insanely stupid reasons to disapprove with Gallup. They always do...finding ways to spin their horseshit to 'their' Fox selected audience.

How to re-group after the November disaster? Just 'Vote' and support your party! Disagreements within the Democrats are easy to talk over...there's little difference between Liberals and Progressives. If the Republican Moderates allow themselves to be emasculated by their Far Right tea cousins...and still remain united enough to win... so can the Democratic Party. Vote Democratic, support 'your' President, and out-shout the lies and distortions of their Fox Propaganda Machine!...a little Synergy goes a long way!

Beyond Beyoncé: Political 'Sound Bytes' to inspire hate

By RF Schatten


Mike Huckabee believes Beyoncé's lyrical content is "obnoxious and toxic mental poison"...this naturally, from a Political and Religious opportunist, hypocrite, and former FoxNews analyst...who performs with Ted Nugent often enough in public, jamming and singing "Cat Scratch Fever" every opportunity possible whenever the press is around, and the camera's rolling.

Is all this really about lyrical content? or who the fuck is kidding who? Patty Reagan's taste for music wasn't the only thing she differed from her old man. Jenna's and Barbara's MP3 collections are certainly not the same as Dubya's collection...just as Junior and Senior enjoy different genres. But now, a President and his wife must change their family values, because someone finds Beyoncé offensive to his taste?  I find Ted Nugent to be a racist and a degenerate asshole pig!...and any man who truly enjoys his company and listens to this piece of shit, is not really as sanctimonious as his Baptist Minister certificate makes him out to be!

What makes all these social fundamentalist Christians believe they're so superior in taste and knowledge? They don't understand! most of them are morons...exploited by people like Huckabee...whisper in their ear, and they'll follow you to the end of the earth...or to that bridge to nowhere! Just like the Republican US Congress...a lot of hot air...but legislation going nowhere.

Barack Obama's parenting skills are as good as any 1st Family. They appear as very happy and well behaved kids...and now, as teenagers?...they're going to try to be themselves! You can only hold them back for so long, mom and dad!. But, you really got to give all these kids, all the credit in the world!...for all kids growing up in the White House, must be hell trying to be like other kids or teenagers?

Conservatives and Social Christians want to take away, a woman's right to her own body, want to take away the rights of a black man to vote, want to control who may marry whom, want to change the education in the US to reflect their way of thinking, and rewrite History and Science...not to mention outlawing critical thinking wherever possible...keep the population stupid! Now criticizing Beyoncé? and her music? Cheap, petty, political sound byte to appease the intellectually challenged racists and bigots...by a petty former Governor that just can't win an election anymore. Michael Dale Huckabee can always quit being a political clown, and become a professional again!...at FoxNews...and their cast of a thousand clowns!

Marco Rubio: Looking for an issue as competition lurks in the Sunshine State

By RF Schatten


A nervous and sweaty cotton-mouth little kid, pretending to act like a big time politico...please, pass him the Aquafina! First impressions tell a lot about a man...Marco Antonio Rubio remains that 'little man', desperately looking for an issue that will put him back in the limelight...yet, always finding a way of destroying his own credibility!

A royal political bullshit artist, who knows everything you'll ever want to know but were afraid to ask about Socialism, Communism, and every other type of isms...because, his family fled from the Castro hordes and the evils of Communism! How his poor family was forced to leave their homeland, by the "Communist" Castro Government in '1959'!

A very inspiring speech...if you want to get a Cuban elected in the Cuban Community!...just don't tell Little Havana too much, before you're outed out. Sure! 1959 was Castro's 1st year in power! and sure! he did turn the country into a Communist state! But let's just say, "fleeing Cuba from Communism in 1959" was a metaphor. It didn't take long for the Cuban's in SW 8th to mark him as "un descarado"!

A Communist government wasn't totally in place until around 1965, so when they fled in "1959"...they fled because; #1 you wanted to get as much out as you can, before they confiscate it from you...which was more the case, in 1959...or #2 you fled, because you worked directly or indirectly for the Batista Government! The overwhelming majority of Cubans that arrived in Miami in 1959, were mostly the upper and middle class...it wasn't till Communism became more prevalent, that the lower middle classes began to leave...and that followed by the poor...just escaping any which way they could. Then, the 'truth' after getting elected!!...his family left in 1956!! and, if they 'did' leave before Dec. 2nd of that year, Castro would've been still planning his Gramma invasion from Mexico!

Experienced in the threat of Communism? Supposedly an intelligent man with college degrees and a successful political career, till now...and he didn't know when his parents arrived? or their family's history? More, a matter of what to say to the right crowd, at the right time...for just the right effect! Righteous? remember, he's just a little man!

Now, this Boy Wonder is furiously slamming the Florida Courts for repealing the Sunshine State's anti-gay marriage equality law...just hours after saying to reporters on CNN that he will abide by and respect the Court's Ruling, even if he personally disagrees. He looked like an ass to his colleagues, so now he's on the attack of the judicial system....he simply doesn't agree that the Courts have the power to determine "Marriage Equality"!...apparently, from former comments and statements he made praising and embracing a favorable ruling against Obamacare...the courts have the power to make determinations, as long as those determinations agree with his own philosophy.

And again, he's on the losing end of another issue...and, in serious competition for the GOP spotlight in Florida...another Bush is around the corner!!

With Jeb now spewing "Religious Freedom" over Civil Rights, Equal Rights for Women, Marriage Equality, and anything else the Religious Right hates...Little Marco needed to keep up...so now, you're hearing everything about Religious Freedom and Family Values from this character. From a Catholic to a Mormon, back to a Catholic, to a Baptist, to an Evangelical, back to a Catholic. The Miami Herald says his Religious profile is very complicated; "It’s a mix...a “faith journey,” as his office put it...that has some wondering whether the rising Republican is trying to be all things to all people, and what other surprises may be in his past". Not as complicated than the constants re-editing in his Wiki-profile! But, what the hell do you expect?

"I do not believe that there is a U.S. constitutional right to same-sex marriage...I just don’t believe there’s a constitutional right to it." It's called the Equal Rights Protection of the 14th Amendment...you remember, Marco? Dubya used it to become President...even assholes have equal protection! as does sweaty Amateurs playing grown-up games. President Rubio? take a swig of Aquafina and ponder that thought for a while!

Obama on the use of the Veto Pen: Make my day!!

By RF Schatten


While the GOP really believes they got one over on President Obama, because they've got control of Congress...they keep forgetting they've lost just about every single confrontation in Capital Hill with Obama!!.    

Ever since Mitch and the Grand Old Party made it clear, they had no intentions whatsoever of ever working or cooperating with Barack Obama...oh! just about 3 minutes after Karl Rove went bunkers live on FOX, I would say!...a brazen disrespect has been systematically carried out, the questioning of his personal and moral character, the questioning of every judgement as Chief Executive, even the questioning his own constitutional authority!! A professional propaganda machine, set in place to distort the facts with lies and innuendos...even Roger Ailes, admitted 'that'! Their job is to promote the Republican Party, period!! But, most important...the availability of benefactors and all 'their' $$$, to buy the best Politicians $$$ can buy...and change all the laws to benefit them.

The advantage the Republicans have had with Obama, weights heavily on the fact that Barack Obama is a good and decent man...a nice guy who really believes in the Advice and Consent...and prefers to work with a bi-partisan Congress. That said, you have a Republican Party that believes in the wisdom and virtues of Leo the Lip! "Nice guys finish last!" They really don't give a shit what the American Public cares about! Yea! they won!...because the American Public, really didn't give a shit who the hell won!l

But don't ever underestimate the nice guy. He's smart and has accomplished way more in Legislations than anyone thought...given the relentless obstructionism by the Tea loving Republicans. He's a lame duck President with no one to answer to...and if it means his legacy? He'll do whatever it takes...if it's the Veto Pen, so be it!! Abusive power of the Pen?? Barack Obama has less Vetoes than any President since James Garfield...and since he technically shouldn't count, because his presidency was cut short...you would have to go back even further to the mid-19th Century. So, what's the big deal with a few Vetoes? He's overdue for more than just a few!

"Nothing gives one person so much advantage over another as to remain always cool and unruffled under all circumstances" ~~.Thomas Jefferson

The one constant that Barack Hussein Obama has had throughout his Presidency, and throughout his life...the one constant that has frustrated the hell out of all Obama haters...he remains always cool and unruffled under all circumstances!!

Obama Warns GOP He Plans To Use Veto Pen In 2015

A Crying Towel for the GOP: Barack & Hillary are "Most admired Man & Woman in the World"

By RF Schatten


Ain't life a motherf*cker?!?! Just as everyone finished burying Barack Obama, after Nov. 3rd...his ratings started to climb, people are looking at the economy in a different light, the troops are coming home...and a new vacation spot is coming soon, 90 miles away! Forbes Magazine named Barack Obama, "Greatest Economic President of Modern Times" And now? "The most admired man in the world" !...for the 7th year in a row!!

The GOP can take over Congress, Gerrymander their asses off, suppress voters, cut off health and/or welfare assistance to the poor...and then, blame every ill in the world on the "Black Guy". It's part their continuous Party standards of lifelong personal smear campaigns...a la Kennedy and Clinton Families....they'll call him whatever they want, depict him in the most derogatory manners, disrespect him publicly and privately. And organized the most massive Political Propaganda campaign of lies, hate, and distortions in American history! Low Poll Ratings? Hey, they get orgasms! watching this shit!. They're currently in a political 7th Heaven...but just can't understand why no one really likes them?

The one thing they'll never understand...just like they've never understood the popularity of a Kennedy or a Clinton...why does Barack Obama remain so damn frickin' popular?!?!

For 70 years, the Gallup organization has been putting out this Poll. 2014 was a 123 sweep for Liberals and Progressives...Pope Francis placed 2nd, and Bill Clinton showed up at 3rd. On the Women's side, Hillary Clinton took top honors for the 17th time in the last 18 years, she was followed by Oprah, and rounded out by Malala. For those looking forward to another round of circus elections...Hillary has been admired by more people and for more years than any other female in history...19 times!... 6 more than Eleanor Roosevelt!

Republicans, naturally will find every excuse in the world, why the Gallup Poll came out with those results...and you'll hear and see all these right-wing nutjobs looking for scandals or conspiracies under every rock.  They'll continue their insults till he retires, and then some. Hate and ignorance go hand in hand...and they'll never understand why people like a Kennedy, a Clinton, and an Obama will always remain close to the hearts of so many Americans...while there's not a single Republican president ever revered by the general populace..."Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton...the most admired Man and Woman in the World"?  Republicans hate that!  Life, sure 'is' a motherf*cker!!

New Republican Manual: "How to attract someone you really despise".

By RF Schatten


The GOP...at the crossroad of their existence...are trying to cross uncharted waters. How to attract Hispanics and other minorities into their Old White Men's Club.

Have no fear! the Dumbo's have a plan! They have their secret weapon!...minority members who naturally, know all about their communities and are set to infiltrate and recruit more minorities into the Grand Old Party. And who better to know about the Cubans than Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio??

Yeah! these two characters know their community...their communities know them too well, only much better! As a Cuban, I can say; "Rafael Eduardo Cruz y Marco Antonio Rubio son dos pendejitos comemierditas que se pasan por ser importante". They are nothing!! just an embarrassment to Cubans... a good majority of Cubans will agree!

Oh! the GOP won't stop just with the Ted and Marco Show!...also, recruiting Women! You know how much the GOP cares for Women and all their 'Rights'? So, in comes the name of Carly Fiorina...that great business woman! (ask Compaq how great it turned out for them).The businesswoman responsible for outsourcing and offshoring thousands of HP jobs to India and every other country that she could benefit from cheap labor. She later ran for the US Senate in California on a platform of creating jobs for Californians...presumably for those thousands of HP employees that she laid off!
Gov. Bobby Jindal is their voice for the American Hindu Indian Community...in Louisiana. You know how many Cajan Hindu voters he can bring to the Republican Party? And their point men to attract the Blacks to the GOP? Fine, respectful, outstanding members of their community..Blacks like Allan West, Ben Carson, and Herman "Pizza Man" Cain.

The Republicans are in the predicament of their lives...how to attract minorities to their party as a matter of survival, while keeping their conservative principals and trying to sustain their Status Quo,..or take lessons on how to survive working with Tea loving morons. But regardless, the chance of a Minority impact on the GOP remains around zero, nada!...and will remain at that level for some time...you cannot attract Minorities, when you oppose every single issue from every single minority in the world!

And those ambitious minority members that are going to revolutionize the Dumbo Party? Let's be honest folks! Cain, Carson, West, and people like Clarence Thomas...are not the most popular and most revered names of their community...maybe a Colin Powell, but the Party has pretty much driven him off the political stage. Fiorina, a cutthroat businesswoman? How is her life connected with those women who do not have equal rights, and who are denied certain health services. For the GOP is not about Women's Rights...it's about how much Fiorina can make for them, financially.

Marco and Ted? their ambition is them...their flock is ultra right wing politics and social conservative religion. Won't find too many in Little Havana cheering them on...most are too busy making plans to visit an Island, 90 miles south...Gracias Obama!
