Counterpoint: Neal Peart Was A WORSE Drummer Than He Was A Lyricist--And Rush's Lyrics Were Mostly Hella Dumb

Lotsa people loved Rush--I saw them in concert at least six times, probably more, maybe 10 times, but I was no superfan.  Basically, when you are too young to drive and no longer live in the city, you go the concerts your older friends and your older siblings and their friends go to.  Rainbow!  Asia!  Genesis!  Yes!  Maiden!  U2!  Frank Zappa!  Ok, that last one was pretty fucking wild.  Anywho, the weak link in Rush, besides the singing, was Peart.  I'm sure he was very nice, but his lyrics were risible boiling Objectivist garbage.  Sure, he disavowed them later in his life, but, sorry dude, you recorded that shit.  Made records.  The records exist.  Your job was to make literal records of how much you sucked.  (And there are plenty of lyrics in rock and pop and punk to like; not everybody is as shallow and tedious as Peart.  Atrios is being stupid.)  But even worse than that inanity was the man's godawful drumming.  Neal Peart's drumming was a masturbation Josh Marshall would single-handedly endorse.  See what I did there?  Way too busy, way too intricate, it took away from the music, though it did help to distract from the embarrassing lyrics.  Maybe that was the point.  Whatevs.  Yuck.

Now this is good great drumming.

David Narcizo knows a fuck of a lot more about masterful drumming than Neal Peart.  Notice Narcizo doesn't need an 11,409 piece drum set to get it done.  And his playing is not annoying at all.  His drumming actually makes the song better, not worse.  Fucking magic!

Biden's Fucking Broken By The Bernie Ascendancy

This is fucking deranged.  Biden needs to be driven to the old neolib's home and left to die.

Bernie Is Winning The CNN National Poll For The First Time

Love it when a plan comes together.  Gonna be some very painful times ahead for the donut Twitter Hildo racist neolib Dems.  Very soon.  You really do love to see it.

The Racist Right-Wing Establishment Neoliberal Hildo Dems Are Fucking Apoplectic Over Teh Bernie Ascendancy

You really do love to see it.  These vile dimwits are going to be so fucking shocked when Bernie sends creepy Uncle Joe to old neolib home in two weeks.  They are living in a right-wing racist fever dream.  Fuck 'em all.

Glenn Greenwald Is A Fucking Hero

Giant balls on Glenn Greenwald.  A true hard guy.  Greenwald has been a target of the fascist Brazilian government all along, but he didn't run, and he didn't hide, and he didn't shut up.  That's a fucking hero.  Standing up to the fascist bastards is hard when you are in the vanguard.  Even a fucking useless right-wing dipshit like Jake Tapper can see it.  How many literal jerk-offs like Josh Marshall would have 1/10th the courage?  1/100th?  1/1000th?

I Don't Trust Peter Daou, But That Motherfrakker Is Having A Wicked Good Time Toying With Hildos

Daou's still an unctuous little prick, but he's willing to be cannon fodder in the war for Bernie, so let the psycho motherfucker give his life in the cause.  Don't trust him beyond that, tho.

ACP Endorses Universal Health Care

It's a start, and about as good as you would expect from a group like the American College of Physicians.  They are not gonna get behind Bernie like the good guys, but it is a pretty big fucking deal.  Once Bernie gets the M4A train rolling, probably in Cali, well, those fucking weaselly doctors will get onboard.

Stolidly Brutal Fisking Of Elizabeth Warren's Political Incompetence

Warren needs to be given her office; she can't win it on her own.  Matt Karp, in Jacobin.  Fucking with Bernie was a yuge mistake for Warren.  As part of a winning team, Warren could have been a valuable asset, but on her own she's a loser.  Tammy Baldwin may regret that vote for Trump's shitty trade deal if Kirsten Gillibrand or Kate Brown are America's next VP.

Cenk Uygur Is Right About Bernie

Cenk Uygur, si!  Everyone who agrees with me, is 100 per fucking cent correct.  Bernie was wrong, but Hillary fixed his Biden apology problem for him.  Onward!

And Just Like That, Vile Cunt Hillary Clinton Ensures That Bernie Will Win

Holy shit. You really do love to see this.  After last night, Bernie needed something to bring victory back into focus, and well, ladies and gents, it's Queen Hildo.  Yee fucking haw.  This is such a perfect-timing thing that I wonder if this is Bernie calling in a favor with Bubba to make sure nothing stops the Bernie ascendancy.  Maybe the blown-out 40 year old skank who was sucking Clinton's dick this morning was a fan Bernie sent by to see his friend Bill.  Whatever it was, this is just what Bernieworld needed today.  I'm happy that I was apperently wrong about yesterday.  That Hillary Clinton is wicked smart.  Thanks, Trump!

Side Out

I Have A Bad Feeling That Sanders Lost The Presidency Tonight

If Sanders loses the primary, tonight's completely unwarranted apology to Biden was the ultimate reason.  Something seems so off about it, so wrong, such an unnecessary mistake, that I can't help think it is Sanders' final, tragic miscalculation, the one that costs him everything.  For no good reason.

Yes, this is a very online freakout that might not even make it out to the civilian Iowa caucus zeitgeist, and the Sanders campaign may have some polling and other data that tell them Biden's campaign is already over, and that now what they need most to win is to secure the support of all the sad old senile conservative shitbrains supporting Biden and Warren and the rest of the clown show because the clown show is essentially over, and Sanders is on the cusp of winning the race.

Fine.  But this was such an ugly unforced error, otherwise.  They sure as shit better have some secret info.  And I don't fucking trust any political campaign to win when it looks like it is losing.  After tonight, Sanders suddenly looks like a loser.  Sanders is not a perfect politician even if he is the best in the race this year.  And he didn't do everything he could to win the race and destroy the vile Hillary Clinton four years ago.  Is he at the it again?  The failure to defend one of your best supporters, Zephyr Teachout, is a very bad look.  Even Dave Weigel can see that!  And he's a libertarian boy who worked for the Fonzie of Freedom and wearer of the world's worst rug Nick Gillespie at "Reason" magazine before parking his Ignatius J. Reilly-cosplay self at the Bezos Post.

Teachout was right on this, and Sanders is wrong.  Nobody lied about Biden.  Biden is corrupt as fuck and always has been.  He will cut Social Security if he can because that has always been his goal.  Biden is a gross, right-wing racist asshole.  It doesn't fucking matter if he is anyone's friend.  He needs to be beaten bloody and sent to the old neolib's home forever.  Suddenly it seems that Sanders truly might not understand any of this.  That is what it looks like tonight.  I would be thrilled to be proven wrong.

Rev. William Barber Is Too Old To Play Nice

More people shoudl have the guts to call out the right wing scum.  Conservatives are the worst people in the world, enemies to freedom and justice everywhere.  Rev. William Barber is a fuckin' baller.

Huge Mistake For Bernie To Abandon Zephyr Teachout And Apologize To Biden, Unless...

Unless the Sanders campaign knows that Biden is about to get blown out of the race in Iowa, obviating the need to attack him.  This is Bernie's worst trait, though, his inherent decency.  Stand strong.  Crush your enemies.  (And yes, I know why Bernie probably did this shit, after Warren lied about him and Biden lied about him, he's being the better man, yada yada yada.  But this is not how you beat the right-wing establishment.)  Biden is fucking scum, corrupt as hell, and Zephyr Teachout is completely correct.  Bernie needs to stand strong until we know Biden is dead.  This is a link to the original op-ed in The Guardian, and here is a copy pasta of the Bern Notice sent out this morning by David Sirota:

BERN NOTICE: "Joe Biden Has A Big Corruption Problem"

In a new oped, anti-corruption expert Zephyr Teachout says "we don’t have to choose Biden’s way, which would give Trump a perfect foil."

Anti-corruption crusader and Bernie endorser/surrogate Zephyr Teachout has just published a new oped this morning arguing that Joe Biden’s record on corruption would make him a dangerously weak nominee against Donald Trump. The oped looks at Biden raking in cash from donors in different industries, and then doing the bidding of those donors. In one passage, she asks “When he pushed for cuts to Social Security, was he serving donors or his constituents?”
Here’s a key excerpt:
Some think nominating Joe Biden, a moderate white man who calls himself “Middle Class” Joe, makes sense. But Biden has a big corruption problem and it makes him a weak candidate. I know it seems crazy, but a lot of the voters we need – independents and people who might stay home – will look at Biden and Trump and say: “They’re all dirty.”
It looks like “Middle Class” Joe has perfected the art of taking big contributions, then representing his corporate donors at the cost of middle- and working-class Americans. Converting campaign contributions into legislative favors and policy positions isn’t being “moderate”. It is the kind of transactional politics Americans have come to loathe…
Nominating a candidate like Biden will make it far more difficult to defeat Trump. It will allow Trump to muddy the water, to once again pretend he is the one “draining the swamp”, running against Washington culture…
We don’t have to choose Biden’s way, which would give Trump a perfect foil. The 2020 election should be about a crystal clear contrast between truth and lies, corruption and integrity, compassion and cruelty. We have a rare opportunity to end a larger culture of corruption and we should take it – we will regret it if we don’t.

Great Idea To Celebrate MLK: Get That Vile Fascist Hoover's Name Off The FBI Headquarters

The General is right.  That creepy fascist cross-dressing bastard Hoover should not be celebrated anywhere.

Political Song for Josh Marshall to Sing

Josh Marshall Was: Onan The Barbarian('s Creepy Old Uncle)

Angela and Strawberry are such good friends.  It's nice to have friends.  Josh Marshall has only one friend, Rosie Palm. 

Generic 90s Power Pop

Or very low-rent Throwing Muses-adjacent outfit.  The pool, the pond.

When Even Emma Vigeland Acknowledges How Cringe The Warren Campaign Has Become

And Emma Vigeland was such a hard-charging Warren stan.  How the fuck can Warren be so fucking bad at this?  She's been running this campaign for a fucking year, yet every week she gets worse.  Warren is the Transformers movies of candidates.  Starts out incomprehensible and gets insultingly dumber each time out.  Jesus. 

Kirsten Gillibrand should keep her phone charged these days, too.  That vote against Trump's shitty trade deal was a good sign of willingness to not suck totally all the time.  Is Gillibrand willing to become a zealous convert to Bernie's centrist agenda in order to be the first woman POTUS?

It's 10:15: The Times Will Probably Pussy Out And Endorse Warren

They know Warren isn't going anywhere, and they know she sucks.  But they also know what a senile nightmare Joe Biden is.  They'd look even more ridiculous endorsing the losers Booty-gig or Klobuchar or Yang.  They hate Bernie.  So they'll be craven reactionary fatuous hacks--they ARE craven reactionary fatuous hacks--and pick Warren and immediately try to forget all about it.

Bernie's gonna win.

Holy Shit, That Crazy Cocksucking Grifter And Lunatic Jack Van Impe Died

About fucking time.  Any real god woulda smote that motherfucker a century ago.  Jesus.  Burn in hell, ya miserable cocksucker.  But unfortunately hell isn't real.  And that vile cunt Rexella is not a pretty girl.

Josh Marshall, Masturbating Furiously To Lesbian Porn, Doesn't Have Time To Be A Corn Cob

That greasy little prick ain't gonna jerk itself!  Marshall doesn't need his strong hand to get ratioed, though.  Simpering little careerist pissboys like Josh Marshall are never gonna give up their one love: guzzling the conservative establishment's rancid piss with gleeful simpleton's smiles on their faces.  Sad.  Thanks, Trump!

Matt Bruenig Is Doing An Excellent Job Trolling Hildos Over Creepy Uncle Joe

Neolibs are not very smart, but Matt Bruenig has built a cottage fucking industry kicking them in the fucking teeth.  Nice.  That behavior probably qualifies as abuse of the mentally defective, though.  But fuck 'emThey're scum.  Don't vote for Biden, ever. 

Pramila Jayapal Knows What A Winner Looks Like

Like Bernie Fucking Sanders.  The train to Victorytown keeps rolling for Bernie.  Hell yeah!

Compositions For The Young And Old

Elizabeth Warren's Political Career Has Been Singularly Unimpressive

Not much of a career in electoral politics.  And she was a Republican till she was almost 50.  Warren has had to be helped over the finish line every time.  Her last Senate campaign was especially weak, running far behind the Dem presidential nominee in Mass.  She needed Bernie's help to get to the White House, but she fucked that up this week.  Now she will probably lose if primaried by a strong progressive candidate.  Heh, indeedy.

Third Way Also Lacks The Inherent Dignity Required To Turn Into A Corn Cob

Bernie is pretty fucking cool!  Returning to local militias is about the neatest thing you will ever hear.  Abolish the CIA?  Fuck yeah!  Castro?  Yep.  Obama sucks for sure.  Socialism?  Get that shit over here right fucking now.  Neolibs are so fucking dumb.

David Sirota Has Been Dragging Joe Biden On Social Security All Week

And now Biden is starting to crack--you really do love to see it.  Better late than never on this shit; it's pretty obvious now why the Dem establishment cranked up that bullshit Warren story this past week.  Creepy uncle Joe is going down.

The Fucking Bogans Prove That Private Health Insurance Is Pure Fucking Evil

Vox tries to bury the truth, but the Australian system shows how much of a waste that private health insurance is.  The racist conservative idiots down under have flushed billions of dollars into the cesspool of fraud and waste in the private sector instead of providing proper and necessary levels of coverage in the public system.  Stupid fucking Bogans.  Outlaw private insurance for anything covered by your Medicare program.  How fucking hard is that to figure out.
