“The selection of a Republican candidate for the presidency of this globalized and expansive empire is – and I mean this seriously – the greatest competition of idiocy and ignorance that has ever been.”
Unbelievably, that was spoken by none other than Fidel Castro. El Jefe himself. Who’d have thought someone so militantly anti-American could say something so spot on?
Super Tuesday has come and gone, and the race for the Republican nomination remains as undecided as ever. A friend and I were discussing this at work today (I know, bad idea, but everyone in my department tends to lean so far to the left we’d fall over in a stiff breeze.) She wanted a chart that showed all of the key issues with all of the candidates stances on said issues, and she wanted it mandated they were not allowed to change their minds.
Right. In a perfect world, that might happen.
I’ve been doing a pretty good job of keeping my head in the sand so far about the political shenanigans going on within the GOP and their choice of candidate, but I think, from now on, I’ll be heading over to Comedy Central and getting my updates with a heavy dose of humor and cynicism. Below is, hands down, one of the most hysterical clips I’ve seen from the Daily Show in a very long time. When he gets to the part about Leeroy Jenkins, I started laughing so hard tears were running down my cheeks (and if you don’t know who Leeroy Jenkins is, you might want to find the YouTube video of the WoW mission that made him a pop-culture phenomenon).
Hey, I’ve got an idea: Let’s have Jon Stewart and Stephan Colbert run the country. At least we’d be entertained.
