At Bazooko's Political Circus

"Bazooko's Circus is what the whole hep world would be doing every Saturday night if the Nazis had won the war.   This was the Sixth Reich."

NEW YORK -- As the political world's attention turns to Iowa in early 2016, Showtime will launch a new weekly series that promises to take viewers behind the scenes of the presidential race in real-time.

Showtime announced Tuesday it's teaming up with Bloomberg Politics for "The Circus: Inside The Greatest Political Show On Earth," a half-hour, Sunday night program that will feature Bloomberg Politics managing editors Mark Halperin and John Heilemann and veteran political strategist and media adviser Mark McKinnon...
Mark Fucking Halperin and Mark "Longtime Dubya Bush adviser and John McCain adviser and Sarah Palin adviser turned 'No Labels' pimp" McKinnon?


No expense has been spared.

As your attorney, for your own mental health, I advise you gas up, point your land cruiser at the horizon and get as far away from this rat parade as possible.

"I was right in the middle of a fucking reptile zoo! And somebody was giving booze to these god damn things!  It wont be long now, before they tear us to shreds."

Dear god I hope so, and yet I'm equally certain we ain't seen nothin' yet.

In keeping with the spirit of driftty's post, I believe it's time for a ketamine/ether/mescaline binge...

So I am beginning to think that a memo dropped a week or so ago when it became clear that the Republican nominee will be Trump or someone acting like Trump.

That memo framed the 2016 voter demotivation media campaign (the only way Republicans are going to touch the White House barring seismic social shifts) focusing on the "circus of it all" and leaning heavily on the Both Siders to deliver the non-vote.

You'll notice they don't have any trouble walking in this muck. That's because they have claws on their feet.
