This is the worst article ever submitted to Politics.

Yes, even worse than that one, where the person's blog sucked.

I can hear Romney yell "I WILL HAVE ORDER!" though I think in the end he'd be more of a Lockhart. All flash, no substance.

No he is Lupin. He has a trait which makes him unacceptable. Lupin is a werewolf and Obama is Bla

When you have a headline that doesn't tell you anything, I assumed SOMETHING was happening in the article. I. WAS. WRONG.

Do tell, what is this trait that makes him unacceptable? I see him more as completely unqualified for the job he took and who consistently demonstrates his lack of ability, although many refuse to see it and fall for the marketing. (Not an endorsement of Romney, by the way.) What is this single trait?

Paul Ryan would therefore be one of the Gringotts goblins (only one that doesn't know any math - who was the one secretly working for Voldemort?).

Lawls. Even a 9 year old kid can see through Mitt's patent insincerity.

Too bad the majority of the GOP's voter base isn't that bright.

Really? The government in Harry Potter was a dictatorial Ministry of Magic with no legislative check on executive government. Seems more like totalitarianism to me.

Heh. Funny! But you have never expanded upon the alleged (by you) incompetence of Obama, so I still say you're a Romney fan.

So, Romney's a girl and should therefore stay in the kitchen and keep out of "man business" anyway, yes?

Dope, that's what parents are supposed to do. You know, teach their kids. Or let their kids grow up without guidance (or let the schools do it, which is worse).
 
2012-10-24 11:01:08 AM
Umbridge had set in stone values (farked up as they were).

Romney is more like Fudge.

"What about Obama? Harry Potter, one might imagine, in the 9-year-old's phantasmagoria? The damaged hero. The chosen one. The boy who saves the world. No, she said, impatiently. Like why can't I see it? Why am I not receiving the message the universe is so clearly sending? Dumbledore! Wise, old, snowy-haired Albus Dumbledore. He has moral authority and gravitas, even when life at Hogwarts moves out of his control. He is also a master of wryness, of sharp comments delivered dryly. You can easily imagine Dumbledore saying, "We also have fewer horses and bayonets." When the evil forces of the ministry come to take him to jail, a magnificent orange bird swoops down, and together they vanish in flame."

Now Joe really needs the Bird so he and Obama can go fly off into the sunset to save the economy...and all that important stuff.

Both sides are bad, you say? But how should I vote?

/Difficulty: Canadian and a mostly imaginary being. 

I'd say both Obama and Biden have more sincerity in their fingernail clippings than you can find these days in the entire GOP with the exception of the True Believer fundocrat types like Bachmann, Santorum et al who's sincerity is on a level with their destructive potential. 

Mitt is completely insincere, an utter phony, and has long been identified as such by members of his own party.

You do know that for the century prior to the advent of color TV the taller guy always won, right? How a nine year old views them is probably more important than their stand on the issues.

I was challenging bmongar on the single unacceptable trait he was alluding to. I didn't get that:

farkplug: No, not endorsing Romney. Just deathly curious to know what my fair leader's single unacceptable trait might be.


was asking me to expand on anything.  I thought you were asking the same question I was.

Also, just because the choice is A or B, if I don't care for A, that doesn't imply I like B. I'd be happy to discuss my views of Obama, but first I want to hear what bmongar thinks is this single unacceptable trait of Obama he refers to.

Yeah, nothing is more useful to society than 9 year old Randroids and 8 year old Communists.

I'm not sure I consider that a difficulty. Perhaps a blessing.
