What If Matt Drudge Accidentally Told the Truth?

My Rumproast co-blogger StrangeAppar8us used to do an occasional series on One-Scoop Wonder Matt Drudge. I thought of Strange when I saw the OOGA BOOGA headline below, so I decided I’d revive Strange’s regular feature.

Here’s the story it links to, which covers Mittens’ NRA speech. In that speech, Mittens regurgitated the NRA’s own paranoid fantasy about Obama, which goes something like this: Obama does fuck-all about guns for four years as part of a fiendishly clever scheme to lull gun owners into a false sense of security and win a second term. And then, just as quick as his hand leaves the bible on his Second Inauguration Day, Obama orders jack-booted ATF agents to go door-to-door to forcibly disarm the populace.

Of course, Mittens himself was all for sensible gun control measures when he was running for and serving as governor of Massachusetts, and unlike the president, Mittens has actually signed gun control legislation. If the NRA were a bipartisan interest group, it would support the president over Romney for that reason.

But the NRA is actually a dismal, dishonest collection of Republican hacks and barrel-stroking, pinwheel-eyed lunatics who believe open-carry permits are required to protect them from rogue turkeys, so it’s entirely in the bag for Gun-Grabber Willard.

As for Mittens himself, who the hell knows what he really believes on the gun issue. He believes he should be president, and he believes there’s no lie too shameless to utter in pursuit of that goal. And his lies will be swallowed, digested and excreted as truth by fellow liars and hacks like Drudge, and the resulting turds will be polished to a high gloss by bottom-feeders like Halperin.

    I suspect the Romneys, especially him, have more contempt for the GOP base than any political family since the Cabot Lodges (that’s just a guess, for all I know the CLs were lovely people), even more than the elder Bushes. Willard is both a prep school trust fund baby and a self-made Randian narcissist– he thinks everyone is beneath him. I doubt in his heart of hearts he would disagree with you (and me) on this

    and barrel-stroking, pinwheel-eyed lunatics

    (and Mitt looked really fucking creepy standing next to his wife on that stage. Total fucking Lurch.)

    So many gun owners spend so much time being frightened of shit. Not the shit that actually does happen with greater regularity than home invasion or random shooting sprees in mega church parking lots, like, say, heart attacks from eating too much greasy-ass food or fatal car wrecks or global warming. I really don’t get it. I’ve been home invaded twice and I still don’t own a gun. And that’s still not the thing that keeps me up at night. I really don’t comprehend why someone would choose to spend so much time afraid.

    @Jim, Foolish Literalist:

    The Cabot Lodges have the virtue of having produced John Lodge (brother of Nixon’s running mate in 1960), who tried to be a movie actor before he gave up and fulfilled the family destiny of being a Republican politician (governor of Connecticut). Before his movie career died out, he achieved immortality as Count Alexei opposite Marlene Dietrich in Josef von Sternberg’s “The Scarlet Empress.” He’s actually a terrible actor in all his other films, but you wouldn’t know it from this one, he’s fabulous.

    Nowadays, I’m tending towards “Mitt Romney has no beliefs.” And, also, I’m thinking that he should announce this publicly– it would help him with the “Mormonism is a cult” crowd.

    But the problem is that I can’t think of a word for it. It’s not a-theism, or a-gnosticism, since where belief would normally go he’s got a hole. So, I guess he should announce ‘I’m an a-hole’. Yeah, he should do that, definitely.

    Kathy in St. Louis says:

    You know, we don’t KNOW for sure that Mitt isn’t telling the truth. Perhaps when he and Obama were horseback riding together on their matching Missouri trotters, Obama let his devilish plan slip. Or when they were yachting, perhaps as the tacked to the right (really, I can’t imagine Romney tacking to the left), Obama just blurted out that he can’t wait for the election to be over so that he could start confiscating every firearm in the country. Yeah, that’s the ticket…that’s what happened.

    I confess to being very impressed with the NRA’s logic: “The fact that Obama hasn’t done anything to take away your guns is *PROOF* that Obama is going to take away your guns.” It’s positively Glenn-Beckian, and gives me high hopes for the success of the spring line of Headware By Alcoa.

    George Lodge, who ran against Ted Kennedy in his first election (1962), probably had no chance. But if he had won, he’d have been an old style Northeast liberal Republican, like the other MA Senator, Leverett Saltonstall: Strong on civil rights and social programs, relatively conservative economically (but nothing like today’s scorched-earth TeaTards).

    Henry Cabot Lodge II had a brilliant career tainted by serving as LBJ’s ambassador to Saigon.

    I remember getting the “Obama wants to take away our guns” line from a guy when I was doing door-to-door canvassing back in 2010. I kind of did that cocked-head, quizzical dog look at him and said, “hmmmm…I’m not aware of any gun legislation that’s been passed, introduced or even proposed by the President or anyone else in his party. Are you?” Well, no, it turns out, but he just KNEW the president wanted to take his guns. “Ok, well, let’s suppose that it’s true, that the president really doesn’t like guns and wishes fewer people had them. As long as he isn’t doing anything to make that happen – and you agree with me that he isn’t – why are you more concerned with what you imagine he might like to do than you are with things that have actually happened or are happening?”

    No answer. You can’t reach these people, because they aren’t rational. Doesn’t matter – the NRA is just an arm of the GOP and Mitt just wasted some time he could have spent elsewhere trying to convince non-crazy people to vote for him, because all those NRA types are in the bag already. And no, it has not all that much to do with guns – they own the guns because they fear black people, so their darkest nightmares have already come true, and there’s not a solitary thing you could ever say to convince them to not vote Republican.

    This is impressive, in it’s own sick way: Ann Romney’s Birthday Party to Be Hosted by a Dude Arrested for Barbecuing a Dog

    Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, who once strapped his dog to the roof of the family station wagon before embarking on a road trip, has again chosen to thumb his nose at the all-important dog vote by throwing a fundraising birthday party for his wife Ann at the house of Frederick Malek III. While to most people, Malek is just another rich guy who respects Romney’s Reaganesque hair, to dogs, Malek is a living terror — when he was a youth, he was arrested for animal cruelty after police discovered that he and some friends had killed and barbecued a dog.

    Can we talk about the Republican War on Dogs yet?

    JCT says:

    @suzanne: YES! This is something that has struck me since moving out here. I target shoot, but they are kept unloaded in a safe. When I first moved out I had to look on some shooting oriented forums to try to find good ranges, etc., and it was simply mind-boggling. Endless discussions on how many guns to carry, whether to carry a bullet in the chamber while walking around (!!), and, of course, parroting every single nonsensical claim about how Obama is coming for their guns ANY MINUTE NOW.

    You would think that there was a gunfight everyday outside their homes.

    My favorite are the discussions re: what to have packed in their magical “bug out bags (BOB)” — for when the govt comes for them and they have to run out the back door with their guns and food and live in the desert. They even have little pink BOBs for their daughters. The paranoia is amazing.

    The best part is that the ammo and gun companies play these idiots for what they are and jack the prices up accordingly around the time of the election. And they’ll fall for it.

    @Amir Khalid: You are correct. They want “constitutional carry” — permits = tyranny.

    @dmsilev: See my previous post.

    The NRA knows their membership and knows that the people who are the most rabidly pro-gun are pro-gun because they fear black people.

    With a black man in the White House, they don’t have to even bother with trying to make sense. Because their members are mostly white people who own guns because they are afraid of black people and know that black people are out to get them. So of course a black president is going to try to disarm them, in order to make it easier for the Negro hordes to overpower them, take their stuff, and defile their wimmins. All the NRA has to do is just hint that Obama wants to take their guns; the membership fills in the rest of the blanks from the rich fantasies they’ve been nurturing for years about the need to arm yourself against the Coming Race War.

    The NRA believes in conceal and carry PLUS stand your ground laws. They also view every big shooting tragedy as a situation that would have been made better if more of the people involved had guns.

    I remember that story, and they re-iterate it in the Gawker piece. Apparently Matt is not a queen to be messed with while on a date:

    David Brock, the former right-wing writer, wrote in his memoir Blinded by the Right about a “scary” date in which Drudge, after bringing Brock flowers and navigating the Santa Monica gay strip “like a pro,” stepped on a competing suitor’s foot “really hard” (in Drudge’s purported words) in a nightclub to scare him away from Brock. He also reproduced an overly blunt email in which Drudge wrote, “Laura [Ingraham] spreading stuff about you and me being fuck buddies. I should be so lucky.”

    There ain’t no particular qualifications for being president, aside from being a natural born citizen of Kenya.

    I don’t hold either Mitten’s money or connections against him. It is that he is a bully and a coward who runs from his own freakin’ record. That, and that he seems to be so shallow that he makes Dubya look like a philosopher king.

    Hothead McCain at least went and fought for his country while Willard and the pack-o-li’l Willards have done nothing of the sort. Makes community organizing seem quite noble, by comparison.

    The funny thing is that Romney saw student protests in college, saw the general strike in France in 1968, but was somehow insulated himself from his father’s change of heart about Vietnam, and the Mormon church’s changes over membership of blacks.

    Mitts just floated above it all. And now he expects to be able to come to earth and land into the Oval Office.

    Heard an interesting conversation on Media Matters Radio this a.m., wasn’t in the car long enough to hear the identity of the guest but I think it was a representative from Mayors For Sensible Gun Policy or some such … it was pointed out that guns are one of the few inventions that really are anti-capitalist in the sense that once you buy one, they’ll keep serving you in pretty much the same capacity for as long as you maintain it, pretty much forever. Putting aside the differences between a hunting rifle and a handgun, say, but pretty much if you bought a .45 30 years ago it’s still going to do the same thing today. So in order to keep gun sales humming they have to keep spreading the fear that someone is going to take them all away.

    Don’t know how accurate that is but I found it an interesting notion. Especially when you realize that Wal-mart is one of the biggest supporters of these insane gun policies for the sole reason that they are the country’s largest gun retailer.

    I’d assumed in 2008 the “Romney has no core beliefs” line was standard political hyperbole, generalizing from a couple of cases – if he’s flip-flopped on issue X, how can you trust his position on issue Y.
    After abortion, health care policy, immigration, and now gun rights, I’m genuinely curious. Is there a single issue that he has held a consistent position on over his political career? If someone were to ask him to point to a political stance that hasn’t “evolved” in a 180 degree fashion, what would he say?

    I certainly think he will. I also think he will embrace gay marriage, have more aggressive enforcement of environmental law, and generally move to the left.

    Is there a single issue that he has held a consistent position on over his political career?

    Here’s my fantasy for gun control legislation that would be supported by the NRA:

    The entire NRA executive board gets killed by a bunch semi-automatic-toting Balck Panthers in Florida who then successfully use SYG as a defense.

    Accomplishes three things:
    1. Gets some responsible gun laws
    2. SYG laws would be overturned
    3. NRA board dies

    My dream scenario

    If Obama wins again, he is going to go ahead with his plan to move into your neighborhood, start a business, establish trust for 40 years, and then sneak off with Jerry’s shoes.

    Winning. Please note they are “New Black Panthers” (original BP have denounced them) and this little stunt will most definitely get rid of them, too. Quatre dans un coup!

    Given that the gun is a wingnut delusionary tool to allow them to think they are not pencil-dicks, you have to wonder how their traditional obsession with the African-American phallus plays into this paranoia about Obama “taking their guns”.

    @WereBear: I’ve found the zombie apocalypse works pretty well as a topic change if you have friends and family in NRA-world. It allows us to have a fun, civilized conversation.
