Conservatism Defined

Frank DeMartini on why New Orleans gets more film business:
Mayor Cedric Glover may be a Democrat, but he is a great conservative when it comes to business. He helped us in many ways when we were building the studio including helping us in the land acquisition and facilitating a loan from the city when the economy collapsed and we needed a little extra cash to make sure the project did not fall apart.
Simple! Just like, um, General Motors.

Mayor Cedric Glover may be a Democrat, but he did help us out when we were totally screwed. Just like a Conservative would!

Fixed. I blame coastal elites.

Conservatism also defined:

"Suddenly finding 14,000 votes 'accidentally' omitted from the reported totals. A COMPLETELY understandable mistake, discovered by a Republican Partisan Election Official on her personal computer."

You can tell how clean Wisconsin government has been in the past by the ineptness of the shenanigans.

Substance McGravitas said...

Well, right now I don't see a reason to call shenanigans other than the fact that I hate them.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

easy for you to say, you don't have to live here.

but seriously, she keeps the election results on her personal computer? That's not suspicious AT ALL.

Substance McGravitas said...

That's stupid, but it's a Republican district anyway.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

...a Republican district that didn't have enough votes to change the election results until yesterday.

Substance McGravitas said...

Well, as I understand it it had no votes at all.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

well, that's what she is saying.

So when she was tabulating results and reporting them, an entire community was missing and she didn't notice this.

Shyeah. I buy it.

Substance McGravitas said...

I buy that they're evil, but that's not to say that stupid is precluded. Could be bullshit, but that hasn't been demonstrated yet.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

Could be all three.

vacuumslayer said...

Substance, your reasonable-ness is really irritating.

I kid, of course...but--WOW!--what a lucky twist for the Repukes.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

It's a crazy, random happenstance!

vacuumslayer said...

I'm not suspcicious at all. Because it's so unlike Repukes to just straight-up cheat. I mean, it's not like they ever stole a national election.

Kathleen said...

it;s conservative b/c only businesses get that assistance. If you're a person, screw you!

vacuumslayer said...

Did we totally threadjack this entry? Will Subby punish us?

Substance McGravitas said...

What punishment could I offer that I haven't already tried to deal out from a position of, um, loving kindness to my visitors?

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

I am sure you'll think of something.

vacuumslayer said...

Sooooooooooo no bare-bottomed spankings? AFAF.[whisper] (He's dead and he shambles and he sometimes hangs out here!)[/whisper]

Actually, ya know what? I think we got our medicine with SurpriseGoatse the other day. Especially since I swore I'd never set peepers on it.

Substance McGravitas said...

There you go.

TruculentandUnreliable said...

Sooooooooooo no bare-bottomed spankings? AFAF.

Thanks for asking for me! I'm a little shy about that.

[whisper] (He's dead and he shambles and he sometimes hangs out here!)[/whisper]

Oh! Er...

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

He's dead and he shambles and he sometimes hangs out here!

That's a TERRIBLE thing to say about Bastard!

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

There you go.

If the recount comes out on the side of the angels, I will happily post that animated gif.

tigris said...

There you go.

Are you making implications about tigers?

Substance McGravitas said...

I deserve to be spanked I think.

tigris said...

Careful; I don't have to do this with retracted claws.
