The Human Centipede or Ouroboros? Watching the Tea Party GOP Cannibalize Itself is Such Great Sport

I just did an interview with the very kind and gracious Nica Noelle. She is a real "porn intellectual," great both behind as well as in front of the camera, and an accomplished entrepreneur. We covered lots of bases about the adult industry, as well as the politics of pleasure, race, gender, and sexuality in our chat which will be online next week. Do look out for it.

A quick thought for the weekend.

Which car accident clown car explosion was more entertaining? Did McCain get his comeuppance from the deal he made with the White Right Tea Party devil in order to be the party's nominee in 2008? Or is Ann Coulter, a bigoted professional bloviating shrew, the more entertaining fail as the disciples of Ayn Rand and Jim Stossel try to make stew from her bones?

The Tea Party GOP is imploding before our very eyes. This is all a great show, but it indicates how dysfunctional our national politics have become. Repeatedly, the Right-wing has made itself a source of national embarrassment, a laughing stock, a comedy routine of dumb and dumber, whose participants do not realize that they are the butt of the joke.

In a country with only two major institutional political parties, it is actually "we the people" who lose when the federal government is made impotent and ineffective by this foolishness. Moreover, while we laugh at the Tea Party GOP's antics, backpedaling on "Obamacare," silly sharia law crazy talk, and neo Confederate Jim Crow political masturbatory dreaming--what is in total a dance of self-destruction--forced austerity is hanging over the social safety net, the economy teeters on the edge of (returning to) a second Great Depression.

Let us laugh now; tomorrow, we may all be the sad clown.

Oh, man, I tried to read Ouroboros three times. Never got past chapter four.

This is ever so much more enthralling.

Awesome blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
I'm planning to start my own site soon but I'm a little
lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?
There are so many options out there that I'm completely overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Thank you!

Life imitates wrestlings, I mean, politics imitates art. Or something.

"Wayne Keown (Colter) and Jake Hager (Swagger) explained to Beck that they are merely entertainers, with no larger political agenda."

Google it.

Was waiting for the video. On Monday they are supposed to do a promo about it, but with Taker coming back and Swagger's DUI all matters may get delayed. Talk about a dumb move, classic though--you get the push then mess up.

Grumpy, peevish tea party types have always been with us. Here is a clip from 1931:
