Creepy Freakshow Open Thread

The Creepy Freakshow is the name of episode five of This American Election, which airs at 1:30 EDT. Click the link to access the show.

This American Election is a BlogTalkRadio program for political junkies addicted to the horse race. It airs every Sunday and runs for one hour. You can call in to (347) 324-3592 to listen to the show, or to speak to us. This weeks topics include:

  • Ambassador Stevens Diary
  • Developments in Middle East
  • The stink of desperate Obots
  • Media Freakshow
  • Romney: Voters, lies, and video
  • Polls

One of the topics Anthony and I will be discussing for the media freakshow segment is this beautiful little example of pure Obot paranoia. It has all the typical progressive tropes, all the subtext of progressive racist, as well as the class resentments so often found among six-figure-earning, white New York journalists like Elizabeth Drew. Here’s the opening line:

The Republicans’ plan is that if they can’t buy the 2012 election they will steal it.

The projection gets so much worse from there. For the record, Drew’ been pushing this narrative for a while.  Here she is working it up in February of this year.

What are you reading this today? Anything special you want discussed on the show?

This is an open thread.

    Congratulations on the show! You could talk about how enthusiasm among all those dead Chicago voters is way down. I’ve never seen a less enthusiastic bunch in my life 🙂

    • LOL! I think Anthony already has dead voters on his list. Thanks for the congrats. Last week was our BIGGEST week yet with over 600 listeners!

      This week you’ll want to turn in if only to hear the new Crawdad Hole ad I created. I also created one for P&L. Both are funny, I think. Y’all will be the judges.

        hi lola, i don’t listen live, but i do listen later when i am at my desk working on projects, just fyi. if i could download them to itunes, i would be a happy clam! 🙂

        • think you can. On the reporting feature I see that people are listening to the show via itunes. Not sure how that works, but for what it’s worth…

          Thanks for listening!

    this fits in with freak show theme

    democrats offer lunch with al gore and nancy pelosi

    they must really dislike the American people

    • gram cracker says:

      Sounds like a bulimic diet plan to me. Was this Meeechelle’s idea of how to attack obesity in America? Gorge with Gore and hurl on Pelosi!

    • kanaughty says:

      sometimes i just want to win these things just so i can tell them off.

      i would tell nancy, i was proud of you winning until you took impeachment off the table…

      that was the first sign i saw where they were getting rid of the democrat party i loved, the ones who actually fought for our constitutional liberties and regular americans in action as well as in words. now i don’t know that party stands for because they sure say a lot, but they don’t do a lot at all.

    • Sorry we didn’t get to this, Helen. We just ran out of time. But I agree: total freakshow.

  3. Constance says:

    Why should Democrats object to either buying or stealing elections? OH! I guess they object to OTHER PEOPLE doing it!

    Seriously if I were Republican I would figure out what areas are critical, install charming men to hold “going away” parties for themselves the night of the election, invite a bunch of students, and people who parrot Obot mantras and then feed them free food and booze until the polls close. Every time politics comes up just say “oh lets not go there I want to have fun tonight”. Send charming Republican men out to pay attention to Democrat women who seldom get any male attention and distract them from voting.

    Speaking of freak shows, this year due to the Obama-economy, everybody in this family is going trick or treating. Think you’re too old to trick or treat?? Quit yer bitchin Grandma, and get your butt out there.

    The SF Giants didn’t need cabrera — someone stepped up to the plate. Nobody is indispensable.

    Explain this logic to me … they’re going to drop nukes and wipe Israel from the face of the earth and then reclaim it for Palestine? How about some nice real estate around Chernobyl instead?

    If the Zionists really do strike Iran, it would provide a historic opportunity for the Islamic Revolution to wipe [Israel] off the face of the earth,” he said, adding that Iran would then “reclaim the lands occupied by Israel for the Palestinians.

    • DM says:

      Whoever said “wiping [Israel] off the face of the earth” does that mean through nuclear methods? It doesn’t say so. I think any such attack is unthinkable, but the facts are unlikely that such an attack would wipe a state. We know of two bombs that were dropped in two cities in Japan, and that country was not wiped off the fact of the earth. Chernobyl did not wipe Russia off the face of the earth. Moreover, the Palestinians and other Arab nations have very much said the same words for years, and I don’t believe they meant that it would be through nuclear methods.

      This kind of talk is hysterical talk from both sides, imho.

    • DM says:

      Please remember that Israel has a few nuclear bombs, so just there, Israel has a deterrent. Nobody is attacking Israel, period.

  9. HELENK says:

    State Dept now says Benghazi was planned attack. When will @BarackObama apologize to the video maker he falsely blamed for it?

    did you all see this one:

    http://news.yahoo.com/obama-says-romneys-washington-inside-job-192537901–abc-news-politics.html

    haha, ob is trying to in some weird way justify saying he will change washington from the outside, even though he is inside? in what f’ed up world does this make any sense at all. trying to cast himself as an outsider when he is an insider extraordinaire, wall street bailouts and insurance company and pharma handouts over regular main street citizens. his remarks stink of desperation at this point. he has no idea what the hell he is talking about and the spin is so obvious that it makes no sense to a normal everyday thinking person…

    Althouse:

    “‘I am not particularly happy with Obama,’ the retired auto-parts storeowner said of the man he supported in 2008.”
    “His wife, walking beside him on the Military Ridge state trail, overheard him voicing doubt. ‘What about my reproductive rights?’ she asked, clearly upset. ‘No, we are voting for Obama!'”

    Auto-parts… lady parts… somewhere in Wisconsin.

    Discussing his uncertainty, the retired couple walked off along the popular recreational trail in this small town…

    How old does a woman have to be before she stops thinking first and above all about her reproductive rights? Well, at least they are still “discussing his uncertainty” as they walk away, even though she made a declarative statement about how the 2 of them are voting. Maybe he needed to work through his feelings to understand why he is so fuzzy about his reasons for doing what he is going to do.

    • DandyTiger says:

      Hope springs eternal.

      • Lulu says:

        Remark from the thread:
        “She should also consider that if Obama stays in, she won’t be able to afford to eat enough to ovulate.”
        I guess in her hierarchy of needs sex comes before food, shelter and financial security because she has never been without the latter.

  13. Constance says:

    I have gotten two Emails today from women friends warning me that the Republicans will take away my reproductive rights if Obama doesn’t win this election and instructing me to pass the letter on to all the women I know because we are under threat. Here is what I don’t get, Both of the women who sent this to me are in their 60’s and neither one of them has had sex with a man for 20 years (I am also free of reproductive worries because of my age). One of them was laid off 4 years ago and hasn’t found a new job. How does this issue get these women so riled up? Democrats are winning the women’s vote by a huge margin based on an issue that has no impact on the lives of women over the age of 45. Republicans need to figure out why and what they can do to deal with it or they are going to lose this election.

    • Lulu says:

      I don’t understand it either. I am 59 and no one paid for my years of family planning but me. It never occurred to me for it to be otherwise. Early in my marriage I made more money and it took a while for him to catch up after getting out of the military. The joke was if he didn’t make any he didn’t get any. What is supposed to be provided next? Movie tickets? Designer shoes? Party favors? Sex is great but it is not a constitutional right.

    • They are being manipulated and don’t even care. I always laugh when it’s a post-menopausal woman using reproductive scare tactic. They never do it to my face, or I’d confront them outright.

  14. yttik says:

    Ha! So the grand kid kicked me off the computer. When I got it back I noticed the safe search was turned off. So I’m like, “what’s with that?” And she says, “it’s okay grandma, if you really need it, I’ll turn it back on for you!”

    • Lulu says:

      My doctor told me a growing number of people who are seriously ill are committing suicide. He said it is complicated but one of the concerns is they do not want to bankrupt or burden their families, see no way out, and he thinks due to the pill culture some people are not used to discomfort or pain or the hard work of recovery from illness. It is indeed sad.

    Romney has a new ad:

  16. Lola—-I’m so sorry I’ve missed your show. I often have to work at that hour and today was one of those days!! Darn!! I’m sure you were GREAT!!!! I’m so excited you had 600+ listeners!!!!! And that’s just the beginning….

  17. Did anyone like the new Crawdad Hole ad? Or get the 30 Rock reference buried in it?

  18. leslie says:
