Campus Question – November 10, 2012

Tonight’s question, greetings, and banter here. (More)

On Tuesday, an estimated 126 million people voted in the quadrennial auditions for American Idles. As finalists, voters chose Mitt Romney (La MANHCA), Scott Brown (MA), Tommy Thomson (WI), Richard Mourdock (IN), Connie Mack (FL), Linda McMahon (CT), Todd Akin (MO), Joe Walsh (IL), Allen West (FL), and Chip Cravaack (MN). Which of these should become Fox News Contributors?

    Addition to the losers listNRA.

    Examination by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence of spending by the National Rifle Association in the 2012 elections showed that, of the $11.8 million spent to defeat President Obama and $3.4 million across six key Senate races — 88 percent of its federal independent expenditures — the gun lobby could claim no victories; all of its candidates lost.

    In terms of giving somewhat cogent analysis, I’d say Scott Brown. He’s near-by, and telegenic. Unfortunately, I don’t think he’s a match.

    Instead, I go with Allen West. He’s bat guano crazy, he’s going to reliably spout wingnut propaganda, and they can even point to his skin color to help shield them against criticism of racism.

  5. NCrissieB Says:

    Campaign staffers say Mitt Romney will probably retire from public life, at least for the time being.

    I think Tommy Thompson is past his sell-by date, but so is Dick Morris, so who knows.

    Scott Brown and Linda McMahon are custom-made for Fox News and I’d be surprised if both aren’t offered slots.

    Joe Walsh could do a Dr. Phil-esque show about fatherhood.

    Connie Mack could be their sports anchor, as his great-grandfather (or something) was a pretty good baseball player and the family’s been trading on that ever since.

    Allen West can do man-on-the-street interviews at gunpoint.

    Chip Cravaack probably lacks the charisma to be an on-air host, but he could do data-fracking in their production office.

    And their evening lineup should end with Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock … with the tag line “We Shut That Whole Thing Down.”

      I’d say “ditto” but someone corrupted that word some time go in one of those parallel universes.

    I suppose the real answer depends on how the Republicans rebranding goes. Maybe Fox will turn to the Governors and tell their viewers that the Repubs do have some power in the states. So far their rebranding efforts are more like new Coke than anything else in the marketing world.

    In the chatter category, fort construction continues. The fort is a fabric thing that hangs over a card table. We used blankets in the old days, but the old days are gone. I am babysitting tonight. I’ll post photos of the fort when it is finished.
