That makes me a sad panda



Freedomworks reportedly borrowed a chapter from an old book, the Bible Genesis about 17 thru 19 I guess, and created a modern day caricature to smear Clinton in the worst way they could think of doing:

Mother Jones — Some FreedomWorks staffers worried last year about a promotional video created ahead of FreePAC, a FreedomWorks conference held on July 26, 2012, where thousands of conservative grassroots activists nearly filled the American Airlines Center in Dallas to hear from tea party favorites, including Glenn Beck and Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah). The short film hailing FreedomWorks was intended to play on the large video screens inside the arena.

In one segment of the film, according to a former official who saw it, Brandon is seen waking from a nap at his desk. In what appears to be a dream or a nightmare, he wanders down a hallway and spots a giant panda on its knees with its head in the lap of a seated Hillary Clinton and apparently performing oral sex on the then-secretary of state. Two female interns at FreedomWorks were recruited to play the panda and Clinton. One intern wore a Hillary Clinton mask. The other wore a giant panda suit that FreedomWorks had used at protests to denounce progressives as panderers. Placing the panda in the video, a former FreedomWorks staffer says, was “an inside joke.”

It strikes me reading this kind of stuff that conservatives must feel they can’t win running against actual candidates or rely on traditional slurs anymore. They’re simply out of ideas, mostly because their original Reagan era ideas have already been adopted, proven distasterous or politically suicidal, or are too vague to write into a bill much less enact into law. But they might get some traction if they run against fictional candidates. And as long as we’re making up fictoional candidates, why not make them as evil as posssible? Say a demon with skin the color of pitch — no one knows if he was born of this earth! Or maybe a lesbian witch succubus — who seduces sweet, innocent animals!

    So this is what politics has come to. Pointing fingers and shouting “No, you are!” from across the playground.

    All things considered… I’ll stick with the panda. At least it knows how to have a good time.

    Yeah… When you’ve got bugger all else to say, randomly slapping a “this person had sex and baby Jesus didn’t like it” label on them and hoping it sticks with a bunch of idiots who’re so afraid of thinking for themselves they pay other people to make shit up for them to believe, this is about the best you’re going to get.

    I meant the panda in the video. Though, I’d still take a regular panda over a politician…

    Sorry, but I have all the lesbian witch succubus in my bedside drawer.

    And no, they don’t do animals. That would just be wrong…
