Down Below

Well, work and my hooker business on the side have been more than usually taxing here lately, and since I have to write something worthwhile at FDL tomorrow, it seemed highly unlikely that I would do much typing, much less the pesky thinking that goes with it, before then. To make up for my lassitude, I thought I’d send along this delicious treat for anyone interested in a catchy pop tune lambasting Romney’s wealth and secrecy, performed lustily by nearly naked boys…. Although, it, too, is better than “Cats,” there’s certainly no crying involved in the experience.

    Not exactly OT, (but that’s the point), while the talking class yammers endlessly about Todd Aiken, and Paul Ryan’s apparent fellow-traveling, they miss entirely that Elliot Abrams has signed on with Ryan. One episode, the coverup of El Mozote is damning enough , but apparently, Abrams is a latter-day John Foster Dulles, in the careeer-of-mendacity department. (I remembered Iran-Contra, but not the rest.) Somebody should ask Ryan about that. (But probably won’t.)

      Oh, that Elliot Abrams has been driving me nuts for a quarter century. What, really, does it take to be finally discredited around here?

    • RUKidding says:

      Thanks for that information. I happen to think that the Aiken “legitmate rape” belief system should be discussed in detail – mainly as to why this nation is peddaling so quickly backward on women’s rights in general (which, in the end, affects men, too), not to mention a women’s right to choose.

      Sadly, the “conversation” predictably degenerates into parsing what Aiken “really meant,” blah blah blah. I can sum it up: Aiken meant what he said the first time. The end. He’s been forced to sorta-kinda walk it back, but not really.

      I agree however that this Paul Ryan character is one scary shady dude. Unsurprised that he’s gotten Abrams on this “team.” Par for the course these days. The murdering crooks all scratch each other’s backs, don’t they??

      • cocktailhag says:

        The theory about rape not causing pregnancy is shockingly common on the right, hence the “forcible” language in the Ryan Akin bill.
        I blame George HW Bush for pardoning all the bastards on Christmas Day, 1992. A huge number ended up back in Dubya’s “administration.”

    Oh damn, Hag, “I laughed, I cried (giggle tears)… ” you know the rest. That video has to go into heavy rotation in every national market stat.

    As if RnR aren’t imploding on their own, this will incinerate the remains.


    • cocktailhag says:

      Sheesh. I hope so, but I’m more than usually cynical these days. Glad you liked it… What’s not to like? There’s an awful lot of cleverness packed into that thing (and I’m not talking about the swimsuits…)

  4. RUKidding says:

    LOL – thanks, Hag, for a very good laugh! That’s hysterical, and what a bunch surprises those nice young men had in store for us all… and I’m not talking about their swim wear either! heh…

    • cocktailhag says:

      Yeah, my favorite part was the head push, natch…. And the tune is quite catchy, to boot! I hope this is the first of a series: how about a vampire-themed one about Paul Ryan? The possibilities are endless.

  5. mikeinportc says:

    Great tune. :) On the first listen, it was choppy, & I was getting some very loud other sound, from somewhere, so I gave up on it* .Comedy is the best weapon.

    Somebody at The Guardian traced the Aiken rape/pregnancy theory to the 13th century. Quelle surprise! ( as those dirty, snail-eating commies would say.)

    “Well, work and my hooker business on the side…..”

    Btw, when did you start making rugs. Please do show them, when you get them done. :)

    Hey, it’s still great that urban agriculture has reached the frozen hinterlands.
    As for the hooker business; I had kind of retired until that pesky reunion somehow got me going again….. Reminds me of a poem I heard as a kid:
    “Careful with the ketchup bottle,
    None will come, and then a lot’ll.”
    I’ve been working down the backlog for two weeks. ;>P
