The Other McCain

I can’t force the video to begin at 1:30, but Tommy Chong* serves up the basis for a ‘Bainers’ theme song:

Red State:

It is well established that Mitt Romney left Bain to go salvage the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics. It is also well established that his name remained on some SEC documents. This stems from winding down his partnership interest in Bain Capital. It is a quirk in the law. It has been well vetted. Even and the Washington Post are unpersuaded by Team Obama’s hyperbole.
Really? A felon? Hey! Let’s accuse Barack Obama of being a foreign born Muslim! There’s about the same validity to both. Meet the Bainers — they are the members of Team Obama demanding proof from Mitt Romney that he is a liar or a felon. Next they’ll ask when he stopped beating his wife.

And with that, I’m packing up to head over nearby Manassas National Battlefield Park to document something akin to an expression of deep affection for Barack Obama, only the opposite.

*My Heaven favor you on the prostate cancer, Tommy. Lot of that about, these days.

    Hyphenated-Americans don’t just like to get into twitter fights
    They like flowers and music and white girls like Hilary Rosen, too.

    Hyphenated-Americans are named Star, and Apple,  and Sunshine and have a son in law named Biff.

    Hyphenated-Americans don’t like to get up early in the morning, they don’t have to, but if they do it’s real slow.

    Hyphenated-Americans love education so they go to Berkeley and take “feminist studies” and get a D.

    Hyphenated-Americans love their lattes, and their espressos, and their choom  chooma chooma chooma shrooms.

    Hyphenated-Americans don’t like to go to the movies where the dude has to wear contact lenses to make is blue eyes brown oh don’t it make my brown eyes blue.

    Or maybe here’s maybe the same thing only different:

    BAINERS!  They will make up stories and throw them in your face.

    Oh, hey, you gotta get outta here, Debbie Wasserman-Shultz is coming over and I need to clean up around here so you gotta leave …

    It’s a sign of desperation for Obama to have to resort to obvious lies already.  But what did we expect, that he would run on his record of incompetence, corruption, and failure?  This has been predicted.

    Of course the lies are shallow and stupid, but anyone who would even consider voting to reelect this buffoon is already shallow and stupid and easily led, or just a corrupt parasite.

    If America reelects Obama, the country is finished – and will richly deserve its end.  We will have no one to blame but ourselves.

    Robert, check out the slanderous piece by Alex Pareene, where he describes you as a racist “neo-Confederate” while pretending Brett Kimberlin is a harmless if eccentric nobody!

     The problem is that they risk jumping the shark and nobody taking anything else they say very seriously.  I already saw that on the CNN video.  I’m seeing not only Democratic politicians distancing themselves from the convention, I am seeing prominent Democrats distancing themselves from the entire campaign.
