Robama vs. Obomney watch: Jimmy Carter says it's a wash
Former President Jimmy Carter believes Barack Obama will win a second term, but says he'd be "comfortable" with Mitt Romney in the White House because of the Republican's past history as a "moderate."
Of course, by "moderate" we mean "neo-liberal crypto-fascist in hock to the banks and insane with blood lust," but never mind that. Sigh. Remember Nixon, anyone?
At the stroke of midnight in Washington, a drooling red-eyed beast with the legs of a man and a head of a giant hyena crawls out of its bedroom window in the South Wing of the White House and leaps fifty feet down to the lawn...pauses briefly to strangle the Chow watchdog, then races off into the darkness...towards the Watergate, snarling with lust, loping through the alleys behind Pennsylvania Avenue, and trying desperately to remember which one of those fore hundred identical balconies is the one outside of Martha Mitchell's apartment....Ah...Nightmares, nightmares. But I was only kidding. The President of the United States would never act that weird. At least not during football season.
Nixon, of course, was a liberal by today's standards. Nixon also -- by comparison with the two amiable psychopaths now running for Preznit -- was a moral giant. Nixon, after all, wanted to be caught; that's why he kept the famous tapes, instead of destroying them. Can you imagine Robama or Obomney feeling guilty over anything?
