Gut Rumbles

shut the fuck up

I have long maintained, based on years of personal experience, that musicians are pretty much clueless when talking about politics. Bruce Springsteen displays the typical dumbassery I've come to expect from such people.

I think that Senator Kerry has long played it close to the vest, and that's his style. However, the presidency is like the heavyweight championship: They don't give it to you, you have to take it. He has a slow, deliberate style that may not make for an electrifying campaigner, but it may make for a very good president. But, of course, you have to get there.

"Close to the vest," eh, Bruce? How about out of both sides of his mouth, hither and yon, straddling every fence and lying like a dog? If that's what you call a "slow, deliberate style," I can't argue with you. You don't have a fucking clue.

I am a dedicated Times reader, and I've found enormous sustenance from Paul Krugman and Maureen Dowd on the op-ed page. There has been great reporting, but there has also been some self-consciousness in some of the reporting about the policy differences in this election.

You would find "enormous sustenance" from Krugman and Dowd. You don't have a fucking clue.

This is going to be an issue after the election. I don't know if it began with the Iraq War, but shortly thereafter there was an enormous amount of Fox impersonators among what you previously thought were relatively sane media outlets across the cable channels. It was very disheartening. The job of the press is to tell the truth without fear or favor. We have to get back to that standard.

Kinda like CBS did, eh, Bruce? You don't have a fucking clue.

Why can't this silly bastard just stick to playing guitar and screaming lyrics into a microphone? He's pretty good at that. When he gets into politics, he proves my original point.

He doesn't have a fucking clue.

(Here's your sustenance, Bruce, you flaming dumbass.)


I saw Krugman when he was on Russert's show with O'Reilly and he reminded me exactly of the kid in high school who ratted on other kids and was the teacher's pet because of it. One of those too smart for his own good type of kids. Couldn't dribble a basketball, wore his pants too high, etc, etc. A nerd in other words.

On Russert, his eyes shifted rapidly back and forth but never looked O'Reilly in the eye. In a word, I would call him a weasel.

And don't get me wrong, I am not a fan of O'Reilly. But give me a choice between the two as far as being a stand up guy, it ain't going to be Krugman.

Bruce Springteen's music sucks.

I saw Krugman too. Another piece of work. HTF can he be taken seriously? I bet he got his ass kicked a ton in high school.
