Tentative Admissions

Maple Leaf - Symbol of Canada
I now view the world through Harry Potter's glasses - well, the frames at least.  The journey through the swirl which began in earnest a few years ago brought me face to face with surprise that leave led me up to discerning that magic is real.  Harry never learned of his Wizard heritage until his ELEVEnth birthday when Hagrid arrived on a motorcycle (one his Godfather, Sirius' shared with his father, BSA/Triumph,) to escort him to Platform 9-3/4 where he could board the Hogwart's Express and begin his education.  My "transport" to the )-( was a little knob growing at the base of the spreading Maple in my front yard.  For the briefest moment, it made eye contact with me and asked: "Can we be friends?"  This "ask" moved through me as an undeniable vibe, one that clarified that the "Impression" in the knot was of a robed, monastic figure seated, relaxed and at peace.  Moments later, the TV announced that Pope Benedict was resigning.  Just as my hastily sketched impression of a crucified Christ preceded the news that John Lennon had passed from this dimension, the energy of the transfer of communication through extra-sensory perception tap'd me for deliverance.  Each anomalous pixel smiles the constellation into focus.  Today, Bene, tree elf of the Order of the Maple, Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor,  visits me elsewise.  A whisper behind the veil awoke me this morning wondering if Kate Gosselin had given her sextuplets Ahm-ish names.  Try as I might, I could only remember Aaden, Collin and Hannah.  I looked them up and completed the grouping:  Alexis, Joel and Leah.  German names to be sure.  Of Pennsylvania Dutch country, and very near German immigrants to Penn's Woods' norm.   We hope to receive the new Pope next year, here in the Keystone State at the World Meeting of Families.

"We're so about the simple things," the Grays say.  At Boston, they hinted of indications of an overtaking race.  Neither one in conflict nor bent on conquest.  All we are, Plus.

As Lenny Bruce had observed; they WANT to believe him:(

Any woman who has survived a cad boyfriend or unfaithful husband can tell you that she suppressed her awareness and chose to replace what she experienced with what the man  told her she had seen, heard and felt.  The importance of the relationship, upon which her "happiness" is built takes precedence over the reality she would alternatively confront.

Today, the spun thread of their "Perils of Pauline President" vs. a ruthless Republican Party binding his innocent ass to the track he laid to "leave town" while the Benghazi heat dies out.  Swirls another thread of sheer incredulity that this whole thing defies logic, and being churned for political effect, conveying to his protective, adoring bots that the time has come to surround their little Princess with the expected, moreover demanded end to this suggesting that the history serves to "tamp down" the hysteria on this matter.

Obats, Media and Democrats, the truth will set you free.  What manner of politician poses as a Leader while bearing zero responsibility for or acknowledgement of anything his agencies do?  We learn that confronting our tests of readiness makes us ready.  There is, indeed, a logic to this campaign master's protests and pleas.  His mission is neither to protect nor defend the Constitution, despite the Oath which was purportedly administered to him.  He wishes to be viewed as doing what is perceived to be the "right thing," yet this campaign addict cannot penetrate the shallow, spreading swarm of his own "attention blindness" magic trick to emerge from his illusion.

In forgiveness mode, it is possible for this observer to suspend disbelief and agree that the demeanor of the "helpless manipulator" in the presence of the British Prime Minister whose country has been snubbed and insulted by him is a cornered animal primed for a revealing, surprisingly "logical" act of deviance defiance motivated by shock that his long-loyal supporters would ask him to be "The One We Have Been Waiting For."

Sandberg's Sandbaggers

Sheryl Sandberg sat down for a 60 Minutes interview aired last night.  She faced a female reporter who, as I recall in 2008, was beguiled by the manner in which Candidate Obama had "Gamed the System" of the Democratic Primary as though it were an accomplishment instead of the crime for which she should have been outraged as a Citizen.

FaceBook was an Idea that took off - fueled by technology and permitting far-flung families to stay in constant touch.  But in the world of techies, they typically cloister "expertise," and to the despair of Baby Boomers, are devoid of people skills.  Customer Service and insight into what makes the Economy work, about what makes Families Function and what makes America Great has been eclipsed by the Cocaine Dealers' approach to 'bidness.' 

But Sandberg would have succeeded wherever she tried.  She made good choices and honed her relationships, her networks and her ability to apply her gains to her opportunities.  Few PEOPLE master this, much less Women, but rest assured, plenty of people in lower profile positions are incredibly successful and know of what Sandberg speaks but share her "recessive" gene of remaining in the background, avoiding leadership for even themselves much less others. 

In studying the principles of success, I learned how sharing ones' dreams with more than one other person works against one.  A Partnership Trustee is needed.  A network of support is not.  "Just Do It" means "Don't TALK about it."  My Keys keep tempting me to go Canadian with the A Boot thing when I'm trying to be ABout. 

At the 75 mile mark on my first Athens to Atlanta skate, the observers had come to accept that my finishing well ahead of most of my competition was a given.  But NOBODY considered that to even be a POSSIBILITY before I reached that moment.  I was putting a right skate in front of the left as "This is Major Tom to Ground Control" played on my Walkman and the longest, last real hill of the route was the final obstacle before me. 

It mattered not what anybody else said, thought or did.  It mattered that I worked my plan with dogged determination and believed that what I envisioned was do-able.  I reached a point where I could not go another step and then I kept going; the essence of endurance work.  Being a success is just that: Endurance Work that carries you through doubt, past fear onward beyond your expectations.

Observers HAVE NO CLUE what is happening.  They are - by your very endurance - being set up to learn a very valuable lesson.  Never say "Never." and Never, when they say your success is "Inevitable," expect them to actually sit back and "Let the Inevitable happen."  Sandberg let us in on the true secret of her success:  she never attracted attention to herself from the jealous, cranky, malicious who would put more energy into trashing her and spoiling her advance than into their own duties.  They would never understand the potential for buying IN with her and would reactively find resources they never called on prior to noticing her, to thwart and deny her.  Save a little for the last obstacle, for the loser team at the bottom who has no hope for a championship but would salve bruised ego and the pangs of conscience for their laziness by taking down the Champ.  (read Barak Obama.) 

The only thing Women need to "learn" is that.  Expect cheaters to come out of the woodwork and steal your earnings, promotions and customers.  Pre-Empt that inevitability with whatever you can hold onto and process it along with everything else that has kept you on track.  It needen't shock or disappointment you that many, many women will join the effort to cheat you.  It's what people do.

Oh, and since Benรจ said to, I'm posting this today:  Donald Wuerl is it.

Fluke Show - The Brats Getting Off On Sandy

A young girl willing to pay the
price to get an education.
Sandra Fluke, nominated for Time Mag's "Person of the Year," is a continued celebration of the willingness to dumb down everyone on Earth in the interest of exalting the Obama Icon.  Divided and now ripe for Conquest, we Euro-Americans, unlike African Americans, can assemble in the midfield of the Country where we really mean it when we respond to the call of Doctor King and actually consider the content of character in our evaluation of prospective friends, colleagues and leaders.  It's a farce - at this point - to see people like a few of my relatives blowing off their duties of citizenship with a snark about their votes.  So bypass the likes of Xi Jinping, China's next leader, "Undocumented Workers" who are no longer to be called "Illegal Immigrants" so as to assert that entering this country without the appropriate documentation is always and only for the purpose of performing work, gymnast, Malala Yousafzai, Kim Jong Un, Gabby Douglas and the Mars Rover and book-end the year with a final blow-out on the concerns of single women in the person of Fluke. 

I cannot look at Obama without wincing at his rashness; smart ass getting in the face of John McCain and his Senate Colleagues with all arrogance and outrage at being called for his dishonor and disrespect, spoiling for a fight with a couple of old white guys who have had him by the short hairs since he stole took office.   A legitimately powerful American would understand the point of Balance of Power and respect that the Co-equality of the Senate, Congress and the White House are safety features built into the exercise of powers.  A legitimately powerful, elected American President would recognize his share of the ring and play the other two with the same energy and endurance that he plays the American Citizen. 

For all his crass insolence, Occupant Obama never performed the duties of his office in his first term and gives no indication that he even understands what those are.  He was prancing off to Vegas, a town he derided as an easy cost-cutting exercise for Convention Planners, rather than take command of the defense of his Benghazi Consulate.  He demonstrated sophomoric ignorance of business, diplomacy and defense with his slavish reliance on force and threat to advance his agenda.  He chose his "marks" for their stupidity and liklihood of cowering to his intimidation and he chose his closest advisors for their avarice. 

This is not a man who loves his Country.  This isn't even a man who works for the greater good.  This is a greedy, cold-hearted, petty, vindictive CHILD stewing in the juice of perceived slight, consoling himself with the spoils of having vanquished the establishment that created the Oval Office and all the trappings of the Presidency. 

How the likes of Chuck Todd and Brian Williams can call themselves News Men is astounding to me and their smug, daily deposits into the legend that is their "One" defies disbelief!  And, as if to place a cherry on the frosting, Time suggests that a nine dollar packet of birth control pills represents the most legitimate benefit of Obama Care in a way that is meaningful to the majority of our citizens - one for which they would trade their dignity, their freedom, their right to get rich honing their great ideas in the American Economy.   I reflect on the young girl, Yousafzai, who survived an attempt on her life for having advocated for education of young women and I lose even more respect for the young women of this country who have no insight into their roles as moderators of lust.  The Progressive Movement of the 19th Century, which began as Communities concerned for the greater good, has degenerated into a crass "gittin' place" for the aggressors and schoolyard bullies who have halted education in its tracks and turned our upcoming generation into senseless takers and ruthless users.  The 2nd Term is more of the same.

Obama snaps his fingers and CBS gives up its 60 Minutes for ratings to indulge the PR machine that is the White House.  Animal House frat speak gives Hillary Clinton her due because he says so.  Who's not impressed?  Yet, again, the protocol for sit-downs is "dumbed down" for the lusters and the spinn-sters who are now the unmarried media hacks trying to get attention in the swirling cloud of exposure.  The legitimate response of 2nd Amendment Advocates to a grieving father is spun as heckling by a trick of editing that conceals that soul's agonized demand for an answer in a forum where answers are verboten.

The Ratchet and the Hatchet - Senate misconduct intended to game the balance of powers.  As the Republicans exercise THEIR rights, the Senate sits on its collective ass with zero work done on budget, National Security, the Economy, nothing.  The Commander In Chief is AWOL - sucking to his White House all manner of privilege and support for his disrespect from the equally disrespectful.  Because Republicans yielded 75% of the Hispanic Vote to Obama, they now think they can turn things around by making sweeping changes to the squeaking wheel that is undocumented inhabitants no more likely to be "WORKING" than the Occupant.  Did they suddenly pull out the mechanism to create employment for African Americans when 95% of that demographic caste a vote based on skin color?   No!  They freakin' CONCEDED IT!!! 

Has Romney disappeared for due cause?  Here's a revelation:  After Sarah Palin's ticket went down to defeat, she continued to burnish the qualities she valued in herself - speaking out with integrity - asserting the views that turned issue after issue HER WAY!!!  By describing them as "Death Panels" she crystallized concerns about empowered bureaucrats usurping our choices.  By asking how that "Hope-y, Change-y" thing was working, she leveled the pompous idiots who bought that Pie in the Sky.  Of COURSE they hate her: she levels them.  They "hate" her like I used to hate my ass-kicking aerobics instructor whose class I never missed BECAUSE she kicked my ass. 

I'll tell the Republicans to get their minds off sex and I'll tell the Democrats to get their hands out of my pocket and they'll both have a better profile in my evaluation.  But for now, I'm still catching a bit of news each day and digesting the point FOX makes about Hillary Clinton's testimony.  She gave as good as she got from the males who stiffed her and she leaves with no "major accomplishments" as Secretary of State for which the sitting presid-er can take credit.  But, no doubt each mission was an eye opener for the international listening tour that earned her - from the piss ants at Morning Joe, no less, the concession that the icons of her back bench critics are miniaturized by her legitimacy, so substantive is her stature as a public servant. 

The FOX take on HRC was her "hawkish" commentary on the act the Government of the United States needs to "get together."  That said, there's no way she wins the Democratic Nomination.  Some limp-wrist-ed O-Boy will line up to sink her, just as he did.  To the women of the world, Obama and the Muslim Brotherhood are saying:  "NO GIRLS!!!"

The Failure of the Security System

Following the stunning First Debate revelation of insubstantial fluff being represented as leadership in the person of the current occupant of the Oval Office, the polls began to resemble a gyroscope on the scales.  Two digit leads in swing states, among Women, and Independents became instructional graphs pinpointing the "Tipping Point" as the Voters weighed their Economic considerations against never getting any of that Change for which they had high Hopes.  The callous indifference shown by the Campaign principals eager to get to Las Vegas for a fundraiser rather than engage meaningfully to deal with the Consulate assault and missing Ambassador caste cold scrutiny on needed proof of comprehension - on the part of the White House - of their responsibilities.  The "Commander In Chief" will burnish his credentials with a movie about the assassination of Bin Laden scheduled to air days before the Election.  The film has recently been re-edited to play up the stones we're told Obama made use of in cheering "GO!" to the Defense Secretary and the CIA Directors' assurances.

Supposedly possessed of a spine of steel,  I challenge any Union TEACHER or Education Professional to split the hair of "comprehension" as it applies to knowing what the fuck you're looking at, what the hell you're doing.  Failure to apply that comprehension of responsibility was scandalously exposed, though desperately needed, by his diplomats and military personnel on duty in that compound.  The assertion that Obama - not Romney - was possessed of the will to order such a mission was touted on the stump, yet, a failure to engage when those same gutsy calls were very much in order on the night of September 11, 2012 in Benghazi cost four dedicated American Service members their lives. 

See-saw swings of the polls are the tsunami now resulting from a distant quaking of the Libyan Malitia communicating to Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice, the UN and Barak Obama that, "Thanks for your gracious assist, but we want our country back!"  A seat-of-the-pants operation ultimately proved its nettle and provided the ground work to where, eventually and after great effort, the forces we mobilized in the support of their self-determination could "lead them from behind." They've gotta be chuckling at the chutzpa of the "One" on that phrase.  "So," they gathered, "When it's our necks on the chopping block, our backs against the wall, Glamor Boy's puss is all over the media with his grinning "likability" yet is a slumping Designated Hitter more about spending money than stepping up to the plate when anything of significance is on the line."  Obama had to be coerced into action by Rice and Clinton, and his reluctance was probably an equally chilling message to those freedom fighters who went "all in" for their own survival and were never the recipients of meaningful back-up from the "Free World" until they had made a convincing case of determination for themselves.

When Kathy Dahlkemper ran for Congress in 2006, she had out raised her four male opponents in the final finance reporting quarter of 2005 and picked up endorsements throughout the district that had previously easily elected Phil English eight times.  For the first time, ever, a serious candidate in PA-3 willing to do fundraising was presented to Emmanuel and the DCCC.  What did Raum advise?  "Raise $100 Grand on your own and then we'll look at you again."  That Chicago-gain-without-risk pattern is evident in the White House failure of response to the pleas for back-up from their CIA Operatives in Benghazi.

 My certifiable racism may creep through here, but where were those qualifications we were looking for in a President?  You know, the ones where we can see indications of how he responds to pressure, failure and shows perseverance in the face of long odds?  Those were never so much as hinted at much less proven by Obama prior to his announcement seeking the toughest command in the game.  Eye Candy with like-ability and celebrity qualities over substance and Presidential demeanor are OK Day to Day, I guess, but in a confrontation with foreign activities that could be called an "act of war," Pretty Boy's getting as good as he gave, PUMAs.  Dressed and prepped for the Red Carpet, about to take a bow as the Exterminator of AlQaida, Tuxie can't get in gear to cover his golden ass so his media mommies are buying him time.  Hey, Michelle:  He's trying to play Jackie keeping the French waiting for the glamor shots.  When are YOU going to step up and assert that You're the Princess.  He's supposed to be the Warrior, no?   'Splains why Sasha and Malia yak at him as only unimpressed black girls can.  Have they let him hear, "You Stink!!!" yet? 

Learning that Axlerod still attends high level security council meetings despite being with the Campaign, and the complicity of the ENTIRE MAIN STREAM MEDIA keeping silent over this outrage, I can only deduce that the Media has conducted a Coup and is a Rotisserie of Banks and Communications Conglomerates raiding the Treasury by borrowing at 0 interest and "loaning it back to the Taxpayers" at 2%.  Yeah, work is high risk; corruption is a ticket to wealth.

Here's a clue, Panetta, Clinton, Rice and Obama.  The War-Weary Americans don't want another war, but, GODDAMN IT!! We won't sit still and be fed a pig in a poke about irate reactions to videos that insult the prophet when it is increasingly more clear that the Weakling In the Fish Bowl in gettin' his ass rocked by his Muslim Bros who figure he blew his chance to show them he stands with them, as he promised in his book.  If EVER the Secretary of Defense had a reason to get in the "honcho's" face and demand an Order to deploy all resources, the real-time surveillance drone feed they viewed should have been the trigger.  As Captain Jack Sparrow told Will Turner in the Pirates of the Caribbean, "If you were waiting for the right moment, that was it."

"Look;" I'm saying to this political Hack House, "The worst thing you can do here is watch from a safe position and keep hands off when military resources are available and prepared for intervention within 400 miles of the insurgency.  Defense Professionals and CIA / State Department operatives do not watch helplessly while their colleagues are being bombed.  Before those people were even housed in the Libyan post, an understanding with that Country about managing violence and securing our personnel would have precluded any pretense about needing passports and permission to enter the airspace.   If I were the sitting President, I'd far sooner be answering questions about how we missed the mark with errant, vigilante reaction than a Golden Goose Egg he sat on when it was never gonna hatch.“For the U.S. military to say they couldn’t move ... one aircraft in eight hours, I say it's time to relieve the people in chain of command," Bing West

Gretzky 99 Remember The " BO Knows" Smak-Down?

Years ago, flash jock Bo Jackson achieved the remarkable status of Major League Baseball and NFL All Star after winning the collegiate Heisman Trophy.  Nike celebrated its cross-trainer with a litany of sports about which Jackson was an authority.  Beyond baseball and football, so the ad proclaimed, Bo Knows basketball (affirmed by no less than the immortal Jordan, eyebrows boppin') weights and "Tennis?" intoned McEnroe.  As the exaltation mounted, a skater in NHL gear circled the ice in front of the net and simply confronted the camera with "No." in a "Get A Grip." demonstration of self respect.  "No Go: Bo Don't Know Hockey."  Anybody who roller-bladed and checked and high-sticked and decked knew it was not easy to make the transition from the contact sports of football and basketball to hockey.  Like Soccer, Hockey was a momentum game that placed every player in motion (except the goalie) and added the very legitimate "play" of launching one's body weight in full-on trajectory to knock an opponent off his skates.

Derived from "Boar Hog" nickname, BO was possessed of incredible strength and will.  His career was magnificent - the performances turned in across the sporting world were impressive and documented.  Had he wished, I expect he could have become a fabulous hockey player.  But Hockey was not the sport of choice for young boys who "looked like" Obama.  The Race thing played by the Obama Campaign was not a game for icers.  Despite its popularity in Canada, few of the men who came to the NHL were black.  Unlike Baseball and Football where they dominated in both numbers and money, the black men didn't find Hockey to their liking.  In the rinks and streets of Atlanta, Chicago and New York, the most fabulous skaters were often African American, but their skills asserted more of their grace, their dance moves and their musicality.  Hockey just didn't work with the tunes, Savvie?

I couldn't help thinking of this ad as I watched the President, who signs his name with a huge B and O miniaturizing by contrast,  the _arak and _bama.  His dog, also named BO, a Portuguese water spaniel, is a black/white parody of his iconic master (although Ceasar Millan would disagree that the Big BO possesses any mastery over his K-9 BO.)

So, you know, I'm no go on the dissing of Romney, former CEO of enough business activity to actually know of whence he Opines.  Sure, the Occupant of the Oval Office has the "title" but it is neither convincing nor documented that he actually knows how to work together except to take direction from his handlers, not unlike a dog himself.  It is his goal to displace the ranking Big Dawg on the Democratic Party hit parade and performance record log.  But, again:  "It's like tryin' to tell a whaat girl She Don't Know!" He's dug in the heels and pulled rank and chucked his shoulders all haughty and pompous. 
 He's pitchin' his "Look: fill in the blank schtick" with the same "It's-true-because-I-say-it-is-and-we're-all-in-agreement-with-anything-I-say" game.

It ain't so, Barak Obama.  As the great Gretzky circles back to emphasize:  "NO!"  I don't care how many of those Promo Bo's push this, and beat down those who don't Party Unity with them, I can check this lightweight off his blades without any resistance and it's because I KNOW!!! damnit!  I KNOW HE DON'T KNOW what he's doing, what he's showing the world, how what he's trying to pass off as superiority and savvy looks to the Voters.  Remembering Gretzky's chutzpah reassures me that even when the Pitch-Man is hawking the "truth" down front, the closers and commissioned earners in the back are hearing all of his schtick while they're writing up their orders and turning in their paper work for the sales they produced, booked, collected for and delivered.

I know too, that when guys close ranks and lock out women, the truth is they've opted to cheat.  They've played the "What Women Don't Know Won't Hurt US" Game and it's just easier to cut them out and consume their provisions as though the battle of the sexes is the game of record.  When Women relent and forgive their pathetic excuse for men cheaters, they let the ego-driven creeps take the cake and prance around all authoritarian and chest-thumping and dominant.  But when he leaves for the day, they look their kids in the eye and all agree, Daddy is a big brat who doesn't get the spanking he deserves because he's a phony rat who will just push us around if we call him on it.  So WE KNOW to just bite our tongues, "eat it" for another day and keep growing up until we can look him in the eye, and - without a word - connect a knock-out Check-Mate! to his glass jaw and knock him off his fragile perch of part ego, part bluster.

Kids get it.  They compare the image of Romney, Father of Five Men, and Obama, Father of Daughters who routinely reveal their "not-fooled" view of his mendacity, and are, likewise, "not fooled."

Unlike Jimmy Carter who put an emphatic "Close Book End" on the Imperial Presidency of The Nixon-Ford era by emerging with Rosalyn from the fortified limo to walk the last blocks to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in the sunshine, declaring with his actions, that the President will be One of Us, not One Supported, Glorified, Secured and Imposed ON us.  While Carter carried off the Wilsonian / Teddy Roosevelt Progressive Agenda with considerable success   his media coverage, unlike the Mini Me he endorsed in 2008, was unfavorable.  I'm amazed, in reading the University of Virginia Miller Center review of his Presidency, how much Carter actually accomplished and how much of the word-by-word similarities exist in comparisons to the current White House.  His Brother Billy was found to have taken a boatload of cash from - wait for it - LIBYA and the Press managed to turn his every move into an unflattering image for the evening news.  So, when the pressures and challenges of the international scene oppressed him, the News Boys and the Late Night Comics made "relief" their mission and the seriousness of Carter's Agenda was undercut.  Scandals that were ultimately disproven, nevertheless received unrelenting play in the press.
Even without the scandals, Carter would not have had good press relations. He seemed aloof and condescending, stiff and impersonal with reporters. They chafed at his moralistic, "eat your peas" attitudes, and portrayed him... as either a cynical and manipulative politician or an amateurish incompetent. Carter was not physically clumsy like Ford, but his media images always came out wrong. 
Wrap Back to old "files" of players and factors, it is ironic that the Bryzinski Family / Columbia University Zbignew who so enjoyed status in the Carter years and vied with the Soviets for power, now populate the Obama Administration but with starkly contrasting media support.

So, BO's Hos, what is it?  Are you just settin' at the fulcrum of the See-Saw, like Kentuckians, making your lousy bucks no matter who's in or what's right?  't seems nothin' the 4th Estate does sets right with me anymore.  My original wish to be a journalist was over-ruled by my 9th Grade English teacher, Sister Patricia, Daughters of the Divine Redeemer, who considered Journalism too restrictive for my strength, which was "transitional" skill.  Heck, wrap back, again, ASIG Brenda, remind us why we work.

MSNBC (except Mika) Finally At Work

On Morning Joe, I'm getting an earful from the Fellati-O-Bam Bangers suddenly questioning the politicians and the emptiness of this boring stage of the campaign.  They are looking over the fiscal cliff and Mark Halperin is actually sizing up the prospects for this Country in the next four years.  Joe had lost his edge there for the last two years and Mika had gone all "Supermodel" on set with the book-sellers and the blog-pushers and the party scene makers.

Suddenly, Scarboro has reclaimed his tongue from the cat mentioned in the previous post.  The gloom and grate from Catty Kaye mirrors the suddenly legitimate observations that it's a good time to follow the campaigns if you like candidates that "say nothing."  They're sick of themselves.  They're noticing that Mika, who still can't get enough of Obama, makes remarks that are absolutely laughable.  MoJo snarks he'll just go right to the Longoria break-up on Page 6 and Halperin identifies as a pretense that the "Off The Record" edict to the Des Moins Register is a signal Obama's Campaign is in need of bubble wrap so cloistered is he from reality.  The Talk off the record and in the diners, bars and coffee shops is about the WHY we're not getting the Who, What, When and Where we deserve from a First Amendment protected, Access Guaranteed, Credentialed, Ethics Invested MEDIA!!!

Mike Barnicle points out how depressing it is that the Twitter-driven campaigns ignored the everyday obstacles people "out there" are experiencing and NO ONE IS TALKING ABOUT!  Are these guys serious when they see the "bubble" that just got "bigger and bigger and bigger" - you know, like the swelling heads Tina Brown said Hillary and Princess Diana manifested during their high-flying days when they "had lunch," was their inflating of the President/STENCH they put on us?

Here's Joe asking what Chicago's saying about the fiscal cliff, about "What's the Mandate?"

Here's MY observation, BSNBC:  When the viewers WERE asking you for shoe-leather on those issues, all YOU guys had was how great times were with the West Side jetting to DC jetting to San Fran to preen with the Pretentious and dismiss or worse, abuse the soberly questioning, once loyal Democrats of whom you were all so disdainful for three years!

Here Mike points up Romney's words from the debate:  "We can't KILL our way to Victory."  Halleluhia!!!  Romney also demands we address and bring an end to all the VIOLENCE!!!  Did it all just hit you folk?  Does it suddenly appear 'INEVITABLE' to you that the Voices you drowned out and dowsed have worked their way through the septage you passed off as product of work and are emerging with the full-aura of stench of the crap you imposed on us morning after morning, brewed by Starbucks?  I get the sense you all feel that blast of fresh air from the Romney demeanor failing to rise to the Obama Bait that reeks of decomp.  The forgotten note of healthy exchange reclaimed a section of your brain that associates purity with what's good for ALL... You know, those of us who lost our jobs, lost our homes, lost our dignity, lost our respect for anybody who responded to our common-sense questions with accusations of racism and bogus assertions of Obama's superior everything!

The tank in which the Media has been chumming for Chicago has suddenly turned into a fish tank for real.  Those who believed themselves to be successfully "swimming with fellow sharks" have discerned a distinct difference about the feel and vibe of the "solution" sloshing around them.  The Game they ran with such gleeful abandon, riding high on song and jokes more than action, now feels base notes more like Jaws than Finding Nemo.   Beyond the protective, invisible shield they are able, at long last, to bring into focus the faces of the Viewers - once Zoo-ers - who are now paying to see these phonies squirm. 

Last summer, in the joy of a pennant race, Pirate Fans were wearing "bubble wrap" with abandon, loving their 1st Place status all the way into August.  A hit prompted the left hand up over the right in a symbol for Zoltan! - a mockery of the stupid but earnest cult of stoners awaiting their cool alien "Likeable" Savior.  Yeah, it's lookin' like the fans will have one more occasion to raise the Jolly Roger on this Ship of State.
