Is even the thought of voting for a third party candidate gives you the shivering shits because, by your very act of participation, you are encouraging and strengthening the oligarchical fascist corporatist megalopoly still-not lesser-enough-of-two-evils impure government-sponsored quadrennial orgy of faux self-determination designed to keep people of good and tender conscience trapped on a Möbius strip of self-delusion?

Mockery, Shaming and Illustrating Utter Hypocrisy Do Not Equal Gloating Over Unelectability. Far from it. But I want to comfort some friends of mine who expressed understandable concern about the immediate and widespread reaction to Paul Ryan’s elevation from Greatest GOP Congressional Thinker to Chancellor for Domestic Programs in the potential Romney Administration. That mockery, laughter, shaming Ryan over his ‘philosophical underpinnings,’ and illustrating his utter hypocrisy was far-flung. At the same time, though, friends counseled, “Be careful, caution is required, don’t take anything for granted, remember these people have an entire media hellscape in their pocket!”

Ron Jeremy is more honest than most of the candidates running for president! And a far more wholesome candidate than Mitt, Newt or Randall Terry.

Attacking the opponents of a candidate I can’t stand feels kind of awkward, but it’s just so hard not to.

Most of the Republican base appears willing to accept some ideological concession if need be to select a presidential candidate that can actually win.
