I support David Lewis!!!
And again, having been out of circulation for awhile, I'm sure this clown is old news to y'all by now, but I HAVE to put my two cents in. For anyone who doesn't know, David Lewis is (apparently?) throwing his hat into the ring as a primary challenger to Speaker John Boehner. And if you want to laugh / cringe / feel sorry for a Conservative, you've got see to see this asshat's interview with Neil Cavuto - arguably one of the most sycophantic Conservative interviewers in the biz. Here's the link that I put up before. There are others. You can Google.
And the amazing thing to me was NOT this guy's absurd talking points. I mean, yeah, Planned Parenthood are a bunch of Nazi Babykillers, blah... blah... I did choke on my tea a bit when he called John Boehner a Socialist... That was new. Of course... if Speaker Boehner is a Socialist that only drives the last nail into the coffin of the word having any meaning at all, but it was interesting to see this guy go so far to the Right that even a Right Wing Bootlicker like Neil Cavuto felt compelled to make him look stupid...
...Which, as it turned out, wasn't all that hard.
Because, like I said, it was not so much about Right-Wing talking points that were too absurd for even Fox News. It was more about the way he DELIVERED them! Oh may God... Describing him as "cardboard" would insult the memories of the trees who gave their lives that we might have cardboard! Do you see that dull, vacant expression he's wearing in that picture (if you followed the link)? Yeah, I saw the interview when it aired and let me assure you, he wore that blank look the entire time. And "stilted" doesn't even begin to describe this fool's speaking style (or speech impediment, I'm not sure which.) It was like watching someone, who didn't actually speak English, read words - and even pronounce them correctly - having no idea that they were meant to link together and form sentences. The man's words were so disjointed, Cavuto seemed to have trouble even figuring out when to interrupt! It was painful.
In fact, if you'll pardon the archaic reference, I haven't seen someone look so shell-shocked, camera-shy and both mentally and emotionally unprepared for something since I watched Calvin Schiraldi pitch the last two games of the 1986 World Series. And if you saw that and remember it, you'll know what I mean. If you didn't/don't... It was like watching a middle-school student give a presentation, after forgetting the assignment and deciding to wing it... badly.
It was brutal.
And the whole time I'm thinking:
1) Only Fox would give this fool the time of day. And...
2) There is NO WAY that Fox will continue to give this fool air time!
...for the exact reason that I FULLY SUPPORT HIS CANDIDACY FOR SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE!
Because he makes the Right, and the Republicans and the Tea Party look not only like Fascists, but MORONS. And I don't just mean to the people who know the difference. (Liberals.) Remember: This guy lost NEIL CAVUTO! This guy would make the Right look stupid TO THE RIGHT.
So you know what? I seriously propose that we on the Left enthusiastically support David Lewis for Speaker.
1) Any distraction for the Republicans is good.
2) John Boehner spends too much time in the tanning booths. It's not healthy. This might get him out of the House a bit.
3) By forcing these guys to debate, either the mainstream Republicans will be forced into accepting and acknowledging far more common-sense positions than they currently do (to distance themselves from this clown) or finally be revealed publicly as the whack-jobs we accuse them of being.
4) In the worst case (this idiot wins) he is too bloody incompetent to do any real harm to the country, but he would bring down the entire Republican Party along with him.
So PLEASE... JOIN ME in making DAVID LEWIS the NEW FACE of the REPUBLICAN Party and the TEA PARTY!!!!
