It’s interesting that Carlson’s claimed that he was offering a big reveal, despite the fact that many in the media covered the video at the time–including Tucker Carlson.Carlson’s descent from reasonably credible magazine journalist to inept race hustler is well mapped territory. He has not been the same man since Jon Stewart took him down. The ethering reverberates through the years with such force that we now find its recipient slathering yesterday’s nothing-burgers in weak sauce, and serving them up as the daily special.Even those who would like to be fooled are not.
I will add however that Romney’s internal polling numbers must continue to be absolutely horrific if the Tighty Whitey Patrol here is resorting to what is actually a really damn good speech by then Senator Barack Obama as some sort of secret instructions to us black folk to rise up and…build…infrastructure in…primarily minority neighborhoods…to benefit…minority owned local businesses. Or something equally fabulously offensive. I don’t really know, honestly. Either way, it’s desperation piled on so thick you could armor plate a truck in it and probably add enough internal baffling and bulkhead structure to make the truck amphibious to boot, which would be really neat. You could call it SUBMOTRUCK 4000 and you could avoid tunnels and floods and Headless Horsemen and crap. Really awesome except for the fact that it’s covered in thick sheets of ablative desperation, which would make the interior smell terrible, like what I imagine the “war room” at Romney HQ smells like about 5:45 in the afternoon.
Anyhow, just drop ni-CLANG and get on with it guys, you’re running out of time here and I’ve got bets to win.
To the SUBMOTRUCK!
