Without a swaggering, barely articulate, brush clearing "brat and a Bud Bush" the mouth breathers can relate to, and a Karl Rove to orchestrate the hate campaign, what can we expect from the far right opinion leaders when they seek to promote their less than ideal candidate?
If Hillary Clinton is the candidate talk show bigots and swift boaters will use anything and everything to lift the rotting logs of sexism and get their creepy crawlies to the polls. They will stoke the flames of racial and religious racial animus against Barak (fanatical Muslim) Hussein Obama if he is the candidate.
We know that there is a segment of society so filled with hate untempered by higher level cognitive functioning that they will believe anything that reinforces their prejudices.
But if their choice is Senator McCain, with his "baggage" of being a
merely slightly right of center Republican except on the war, or the morphing every minute Romney, these butt scratchers may not feel that it is worth breaking their usual routine to actually go to the polls. Many of these voters need to be both strongly against a candidate and strongly for the opponent to bother voting.
Lacking a brats and beer backyard barbecue George W. Bush to vote for, I see a less organized but still zealous major get out the vote drive using every dirty trick in the book, with fabricated accusations flying on talk shows and the Internet about either Clinton or Obama. Unlike with Bush who, through Rove, actually approved and made an art form of these tactics, I think the Republican candidate will sincerely and actively disavow them. But he won’t be able to stop them. And even without Karl Rove, the hucksters of hate still have the Rove playbook.
I expect that what with the verbal diarrhea spewed by the these polluters of the airwaves, we will hear that Hillary condoned Bill’s affairs because she either had no interest in sex, or was a lesbian. Being asexual or sublimating sex drive to a higher purpose is too boring (I mean we don’t condemn nuns) so the later will probably be used by the scummiest of the right wing scum.
What is likely to be the truth about the Clinton’s sex life won’t be discussed by them because it is simply as boring as it is uncontroversial, and in fact something many women can relate to. It is probably that she has always had a statistically average heterosexual sex drive, and Bill had a combination of a statistically above average sex drive crucially added to a psychological need for the thrill that apparently a secret affair gave him.
As for the accusations against Barak (the deep cover jihadist) Obama, so far none involve personal matters. Since every charge against him which has been used to incite fears has been refuted, I wouldn’t be surprised if some slime sellers come up totally bogus claims about sexual indiscretions.
All we can hope for is that whoever the Republican candidate is, he will be able to assure a clean campaign and once and for all put a permanent cork in the garbage mouths of these puke mongers.
