Game of Thrones: The Fight for King Ronald’s Crown

medieval-knights-jousting-1

Thus is the story told:

Before there was Herman Cain, the totally fab non-hirer of Muslims and Defender of the Holy Realm against Sharia, there was the Donald, a man whose own star flashed oh so briefly but brightly across the GOP firmament until, alas, he crashed under the weight of his ego into the Slough of Birtherdom, never to be seen again except on Sunday nights at 9, 8 Central (check your local listings).

Nope, not Sarah Palin

Nope, not Sarah Palin

And lest we forget, before that, oh so many forgotten months ago, there was the sainted Sarah Palin, the crusading Wasilla wrong-righter, whom many once fervently believed would lead the people in a campaign to evict the usurper Barack Obama and his consort, the dessert-banning Michelle, from their illicit crib deep in the nation’s Capitol.

Alas, Sarah too hath fallen, led astray from her true destiny by the lure of lucre, hotel caviar and plush furs from animals that she didn’t even have to kill and skin herself, doncha know?

Sarah’s descent may be the most heart-breaking, a tragedy of unfulfilled promise, like the promise to serve a full term as governor, or to return the clothes to Macy’s. It seems nigh impossible to measure the depths of her decline from sweetheart of the rodeo to sheer irrelevance, but fear not, dear friends, for a poll loometh.

And here it is revealed:

Nope, not Dennis Kucinich

Nope, not Dennis Kucinich

Even when pitted against the left’s most knavish, gnomish nebbish, the former mayor and permanently mere Dennis of Kucinich, Sarah pales. In a joust for the presidency, sayeth the pollsters, the wee wan one would smite the Queen of the North 43 percent to 36 percent.

Oh, how the Flighty hath fallen.

– Jay Bookman

NOTE: “Not Sarah Palin” is actually Keira Knightley, from “King Arthur.” “Not Dennis Kucinich” is Peter Dinklage from HBO’s “Game of Thrones.”

From the linkee: Most of the undecideds, therefore, are on the fence because they know so little
about Kucinich. Whether they would still prefer Kucinich if he were an actual candidate
is the question.

Jay, you spend one heck of a lot of time “lamenting” the fall of conservatives. I think you better save some of your sympathy for the fall of your Democrats. Even at the worse, the House and Senate will be republican in 2013. And even if (and at this point that is a very big if) Obama does win, he will lose, and that is as it should be. What I find hilarious is your pointing out that this republican candidate or that republican candidate is not experienced enough or is too buffoonish to be president. Considering the creds that Obama had coming in, I think that Micky Mouse would have a shot at becoming president. And he isn’t even “real” (of course neither was Obama). Obama’s campaign platform and the promises it included in 2008 have proven to be nothing but one big lie but you goose-stepping liberal/progressives are too far gone to acknowledge that he is nothing more than a small-time, self-serving politician.

In fact, as it stands right now this GOP field is so jaw-droppingly weak that one almost has to wonder at the possibility of one party defaulting.

Another thing is that when I hear talk of various possible candidates taking a pass on running (the Jeb Bushes etc.) I almost wonder whether out in the future we might not see the presidency in this country become a de facto 8 year (two term) gig. Just sheer weariness of the grind of constant, endless campaigning. And a recognition that – as the GOP have shown – there are advantages to being in the opposition – namely, an exemption from the duties of ruling.

++++++
Looking at polling at RealClear Politics Obama is winning against a generic GOP candidate 42.8 to 37.8. Against Romney he is wining 48.4 to 42.1.
The percentage of decided voters is roughly the same. If Romney was a weak candidate I would expect his percentage of decided voters to go up when facing a real candidate. Obama’s number don’t move up much against Pawlentry or Daniels compared to Romney showing that their spread has allot to do with being unknown.

Matching Carter against a series of potential political opponents, the Yankelovich survey for TIME shows the President able to achieve only a tie with the leading Republican contender, Ronald Reagan. This represents a significant improvement in Reagan’s standing against Carter’s in the national polls.

Asked to choose between the two men as candidates for President, those questioned in the survey divided evenly, 42% for each man, with 16% undecided. In this test matching, Carter managed to better Reagan only in the Midwest, while losing the Northeast, the West and even his native South to the former California Governor.

The race was essentially even in April of previous the previous year to the election. Reagan won by almost 9% points.

If you don’t think a Republican who can win in Massachusetts is a good candidate you are kidding yourself. The hardest part for Romney will be getting nominated which I am not sure he can do.

ANOTHER TALE FROM FAIRYLAND

Ah but there is no end to fairyland of the gnomes and the giants. The gnomes watched wild flowers grow and made fun of Jack the Beanstalk. Everyday they said, See my flowers.. I am all for hospitals, schools and yellow brick roads for all us little gnomes who sit upon their toadstools all day and whistle in the wind. This is fairyland where manna falls from heaven.. We advocate out of the goodness of our hearts and also because little gnomes vote for flowers..

Then all the little gnomes nodded in agreement and said, “Yes Yes, we know there are rich kings and queens out there and the magic mountain should furnish us the hospitals, schools and yellow brick roads in fairy land. Let us go vote for the gnome who knows these things”.

Now the giants worked hard everyday and found meat and bread for themselves and the old giants. They tenderly succored the child in school and tucked grannies into their comfortable beds. They built hospitals, schools and yellow brick roads and choochoo trains and jiminey jets. They looked to no one to support them..

But one day, a little gnome came by. He saw the giants working. He said,” Thee should not be toiling this long hot day. Thou should be furnished all thy needs by yon government on the far mountain. that reaches into the sky ceiling. Lay down your tools and stop this foolish thing called work. Thou bust a gut for nothing. Manna will fall.”

Now the giants thought of this and said.”But but gnomey, if nobody works, the mountain will run dry and crumble. Your flowers will wilt and your cups will not run over. Then there will be no kings & queens but rulers who will make even you gnomes work if they want to live and all shall be divided evenly, even the crumbs which will be all there is. Manna will not fall.”

“POOO”, said the gnome “Thou art backward giants with no brain. Everybody knows the mountain will not run dry and manna will not stop falling and the rich deserve to be poor. Hast thou no imagination. This is fairy land.” Then he went off to sleep on his toadstool and the giants went back to work.

All went well in fairy land until one day……..the giants stopped working.. and the sky ceiling fell on the magic mountain. . and ^<^<^<^<^<^<^<..00000000000———–________________!.

regarding old movies, AMC has really hit their stride the last few weeks. They had a “Dirty Harry” week and a “Death Wish” week. Each night they showed one in the series. Watching those brought back some memories. You realize just how many young actors were in those movies. “Magnum Force” had a young Robert Urich, David Sol, and Tim Matheson. In the original “Death Wish” one of the young thugs was Jeff Goldbloom, and in the sequel on of the thugs was Laurence Fishburne.

“Listen, strange women lyin’ in ponds distributin’ swords is no basis for a system of government! Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcicial aquatic ceremony!”

Kewl, Ty. I remembered the Magnum Force cast, but forgot about the Death Wish bunch.

And in “The Dead Pool” a very young Jim Carrey played the musician doing the music video who got killed early on.

Great stuff.

“District Attorney: Mr. Brown, you’ve testified to the sterling character of Mr. Stevens; you’ve testified that you’ve known him for a long long time. About how long would that be?

Andrew ‘Andy’ Hogg Brown: Oh, fifteen to twenty years.

District Attorney: I see. Now, would you mind telling the court under just what circumstances you met the defendant?

Andrew ‘Andy’ Hogg Brown: Well, about eighteen years ago at a carnival, I reached into my pocket to get my wallet and shook hands with Mr. Stevens.
[wild laughter from courtroom gallery]

Andrew ‘Andy’ Hogg Brown: Oh-oh, it ain’t like it sound, Mister. Duh, I found out later that collectin’ wallets was just a hobby of his.”
