Likeability version 3.1.3 has been really glitchy.

Officer Krupke is the best song from a musical ever. "my grandma pushes tea", 1950s reference to teapot ie pot. He doesn't need a shrink, he needs a job, etc. love that song.

FTFA: Polls have generally shown a tight contest despite Obama's consistent edge in popularity.

Kevin says: Horserace reporting diminishes and enstupidifies all of us. Polls have consistently shown Obama gets 332 electoral votes if he takes Florida, 303 if he does not.

It's "Krupke," and I just posted a line from that song in a thread two days ago. Odd.

Edgy for its time, it was, with "my brother wears a dress" and all.

"Hey! I'm depraved on account I'm deprived!"

Ah, what the hell.

Gee, Officer Krupke (version from the movie)

ACTION
Dear kindly Sergeant Krupke,
You gotta understand,
It's just our bringin' up-ke
That gets us out of hand.
Our mothers all are junkies,
Our fathers all are drunks.
Golly Moses, natcherly we're punks!

ACTION AND JETS
Gee, Officer Krupke, we're very upset;
We never had the love that ev'ry child oughta get.
We ain't no delinquents,
We're misunderstood.
Deep down inside us there is good!

ACTION
There is good!

ALL
There is good, there is good,
There is untapped good!
Like inside, the worst of us is good!

SNOWBOY: (Spoken) That's a touchin' good story.

ACTION: (Spoken) Lemme tell it to the world!

SNOWBOY: Just tell it to the judge.

ACTION
Dear kindly Judge, your Honor,
My parents treat me rough.
With all their marijuana,
They won't give me a puff.
They didn't wanna have me,
But somehow I was had.
Leapin' lizards! That's why I'm so bad!

DIESEL: (As Judge) Right!

Officer Krupke, you're really a square;
This boy don't need a judge, he needs an analyst's care!
It's just his neurosis that oughta be curbed.
He's psychologic'ly disturbed!

ACTION
I'm disturbed!

JETS
We're disturbed, we're disturbed,
We're the most disturbed,
Like we're psychologic'ly disturbed.

DIESEL: (Spoken, as Judge) In the opinion on this court, this child is depraved on account he ain't had a normal home.

ACTION: (Spoken) Hey, I'm depraved on account I'm deprived.

DIESEL: So take him to a headshrinker.

ACTION (Sings)
My father is a bastard,
My ma's an S.O.B.
My grandpa's always plastered,
My grandma pushes tea.
My sister wears a mustache,
My brother wears a dress.
Goodness gracious, that's why I'm a mess!

A-RAB: (As Psychiatrist) Yes!
Officer Krupke, you're really a slob.
This boy don't need a doctor, just a good honest job.
Society's played him a terrible trick,
And sociologic'ly he's sick!

ACTION
I am sick!

ALL
We are sick, we are sick,
We are sick, sick, sick,
Like we're sociologically sick!

A-RAB: In my opinion, this child don't need to have his head shrunk at all. Juvenile delinquency is purely a social disease!

ACTION: Hey, I got a social disease!

A-RAB: So take him to a social worker!

ACTION
Dear kindly social worker,
They say go earn a buck.
Like be a soda jerker,
Which means like be a schumck.
It's not I'm anti-social,
I'm only anti-work.
Gloryosky! That's why I'm a jerk!

BABY JOHN: (As Female Social Worker)
Eek!
Officer Krupke, you've done it again.
This boy don't need a job, he needs a year in the pen.
It ain't just a question of misunderstood;
Deep down inside him, he's no good!

ACTION
I'm no good!

ALL
We're no good, we're no good!
We're no earthly good,
Like the best of us is no damn good!

DIESEL (As Judge)
The trouble is he's crazy.

A-RAB (As Psychiatrist)
The trouble is he drinks.

BABY JOHN (As Female Social Worker)
The trouble is he's lazy.

DIESEL
The trouble is he stinks.

A-RAB
The trouble is he's growing.

BABY JOHN
The trouble is he's grown.

ALL
Krupke, we got troubles of our own!

Gee, Officer Krupke,
We're down on our knees,
'Cause no one wants a fellow with a social disease.
Gee, Officer Krupke,
What are we to do?
Gee, Officer Krupke,
Krup you!

More independents view Obama favorably than unfavorably, by a margin of 53 percent to 40 percent. Their opinions of Romney were nearly reversed, with 37 percent viewing him favorably and 50 percent unfavorably

That could be a problem

And the more Romney keeps looking like disingenuous liar and gets called out for it, the more the "unfavorable" number will get bigger.

The question is, how in the fark do 40% of those polled still have a favorable view of Romney? I'm convinced that if he ate a baby on live television, confessed to raping and killing a girl in 1990 and officially came out as a Satanist 30% of Americans would still think he was A-OK.

At least he's not a blah person, I guess.

Oh yeah? Well the numbers will shift as soon as the Romney campaign reveals that the wife of the gardener of an Obama intern ALSO stood on chairs in public.

The GOP's personality cult is a strong thing. The faithful will ignore any fault of their chosen leader, and project anything they can't ignore onto liberals. Their leader is also instantly the perfect choice with no fault.

Which may not translate into votes for Obama.

Nate Silver made an interesting point: people aren't voting FOR Romney. They're voting AGAINST Obama.

The question becomes: At which point will his base view Romney so unfavorably that they will simply abstain from voting?
 
2012-08-09 03:52:50 PM
A couple weeks ago I was listening to archived shows of Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me and when they were in the '08 election cycle what was striking was how universaly hated Mitt Romney was, ESPECIALLY by the republicans

I think we might be finding out. They don't like Obama personally, sure, but they understand he'll be gone eventually. What they really don't like is his signature policy achievement, which will be around (best part) forever. Their candidate had already supplied the template to the ACA, and this week his spokesperson not only reiterated his support of that template, but admitted there is a problem to solve and that programs like ACA would probably solve it.

The movie version was moved because it's a little too upbeat for the immediate aftermath of a fatal stabbing. IIRC

I'm amused that 83% of Republicans who a couple of years ago were against liberals... are now feeling favorable toward a tax-and-spend liberal Mexican Mormon from Taxachusetts who came up with a socialist health plan. Just saying.

Yes. Let's say someone is a total asshole but he's really good at getting things done and I like his positions; am I going to vote for the other guy just because I wouldn't want to have to deal with the asshole? I don't have to deal with him, Congress does. If anything dickishness would be a selling point for me, but it doesn't work when you have no principals and are, in fact, a corporate shill completely lacking in ethics.

Other way around, I think ... these are the lyrics from the film, but I grabbed 'em in a hurry off another site, so that's no guarantee. I have the original Broadway cast version, and this seems right, but I'm at work and can't check.

Glad to see so many WSS fans, at any rate.

It was, silly person. Specifically, gonorrhea.

Those are the stage lyrics, btw; they had to clean up some of the "vulgar language" to please the censors in the movie version. I think it was:

My daddy beats my mommy,
My mommy clobbers me;
My grandpa is a commie,
etc.

Because child abuse is much more acceptable than calling one's parents bastards and SOB's, I guess.

The version where dad is a bastard and mom's an SOB is the stage version. The movie version is "daddy beats my mommy/my mommy clobbers me..."

I checked on my DVD version.

The stage version has "America" sung by just the girls in the sweatshop; the film version has the entire Sharks gang singing it, with the girls saying how happy they are to be in America. Which makes more sense, really.
