i hope azspot/inothernews/stfuconservatives et al are at least getting paid for exploiting the need of credulous liberals to believe that Obama is something other than a water carrier for international finance and weapons manufacturers cause otherwise I don’t get it

El-P - Drones Over Brooklyn

I know i’ve posted this one before, but being that the record just came out and then there’s also that recent NYT’s article that gave us a better idea of just what a Techno Murderlord President Obama really is and I’ve had to argue with various liberals who claim that 1) It’s ok because Obama is smart and has the head and heart to deal with this horrid power responsibly 2) this is why it’s more important than ever to SUPPORT Obama because he mustn’t lose the election to Romney who will certainly abuse this abuse of power that Obama is abusing…. what? What???

And the lyrics, holy shit:

walk in the zone or get less, wake in the fog of fright night, eat where sifters sell trash, sleep were the orphans hell hatch. pardon me son im zoned out, cloned out, no doubt home is, blowed out, sold out without extra man bonus
tragedy smurf smirks, a middle mans shirt bursts, wetted up, wet work, you get it up get murked, 
a wabbit in crosshairs, mechanical fox hunt, be quiet they’re hunting now, the method is awesome, 
and i can see them in my eyes when they’re closed, i can feel them at night
i can feel them plot a course through the sky i believe in their flight
dones over bklyn, 
From the same album I suppose I could have also posted Tougher Colder Killer
Marche is merely the perfect example of how eager American liberals are to accommodate the ideology of the ruling class, “austerity” being all the rage these days. It’s nothing new. Liberals have always been useful servants. And they’ve been following their spiritual masters in the Democratic Party over the free market cliff for decades, even now as they squeeze out a few about inequality. Hey, they’ll always have a pet project.
But liberals aren’t just surrendering to all this debt-mongering bullshit, they’re chipping in like the good little poodles they are. They’re more than happy to cheer on the Millennials. Not for anything like socialism but for more austerity.
If the aim of this show is to get viewers to disrespect everybody in elected office, mission accomplished….
Veep is not meant to be another West Wing, a lodestar to our better selves. Cynicism has increased, and Veep lets us in on the joke—nobody is ever doing the right thing for the right reason.

An other website doing its obligatory pre-review of Veep.

  1. If West Wing is a “lodestar to our better selves” I will follow this guide and when I meet our “better selves” I will rip their pathetic hearts straight from their chests.
  2. I don’t think it’s “cynicism” but accuracy that makes Iannuci’s work funny (and good). If you watch and wind up having disrespect for people in elected office, then he must be striking at reality.
basically Parker and Stone’s genius is getting liberals to laugh and feel like they’re engaging in something subversive when they’re really just watching/listening to something totally mainstream

- Helrond. in re: the South Park jerk squad’s whole oeuvre and their latest stupid endeavor in particular

Also, “totally mainstream” could be combined with “unconsciously bigoted” and/or “childishly and unnecessarily cruel” … basically it’s just a big liberal circle-jerk (Helrond went on to point out that “Saint Bob Dylan” had the same m.o.)
