    It's already started folks...CNN releasing sealed divorce records..

    SNIP:

    Dec 28, 2011Sign-Up For those Republican presidential candidates who eventually conclude there is no path to the nomination, there is consolation in the notion that they won't be the ones to face the brutal onslaught being prepared for the GOP king-of-the-mountain by team Obama and its army of "objective" media allies.

    This time around, the Obama machine cannot run on the fairy dust of hope and change. It cannot suggest after four years of dreadful executive-branch performance, that the promised one is on the horizon.

    Its only path to victory is the one that finds its opponents even more disliked. So it can be guaranteed that whoever wins the Republican contest will face one of the most scorching personal assaults the country has ever witnessed.

    Occasionally, the old style, thrill-up-my-leg over Obama quote still emerges. The Media Research Center's 2011 winners of "Best of Notable Quotables" provide examples. Stephen Marche of Esquire magazine won over judges of the "Obamagasm Award" by energetically asking "Can we just take a month or two to contemplate him (Obama) the way we might contemplate a painting by Vermeer or a guitar lick by the early-'70s Rolling Stones or a Peyton Manning pass or any other astounding, ecstatic human achievement?" At least when people said this in 2008, it hadn't been completely disproved. Marche reminds us of Baghdad Bob, the ridiculous propagandist for Saddam, proclaiming the defeat of allied troops while they emerged around the corner.

    Marche actually claimed we will look back decades from now and see "a glorious idyll in American politics, with a confident, intelligent, fascinating president riding the surge of his prodigious talents from triumph to triumph." Someone hearing Marche declare this might rush him to an emergency room for signs of dementia.

    The winner of MRCs "Media Hero Award" came forward as the congressional career of Anthony Weiner was about to end after having demonstrated his contempt for his wife by showing off his body parts all over Twitter (and actually exchanging tweets with high school girls).

    ABCs Barbara Walters urged Weiner not to resign, citing as her role model the most shameless, brazen sex offender to ever darken the White House door. "And we had a President named Bill Clinton who went through a great deal of trouble, weathered the storm and is now not only respected, but he's beloved by many people with a very good marriage. So, I think Anthony Weiner should hang in there." Bad word choice.

    Oh, yeah, the MSM will be dutifully carry The Lightbringer's water and doing everything they can to pretend his record simply isn't there.

    Whoever gets the GOP nom had best be prepared for an avalanche of shit.

    I don't think it will matter, assuming of course there's no skeleton of the candidate molesting children or something along those lines. Other stuff though, who cares? One of the benefits of Babs Walters and others reminding us of Clinton's survival - and others' transgressions - is a numbing effect IMO. The left has been educating people to shelve the person's sins and only be concerned with are they up to the task of performing the duties of the job they seek. Their lesson is personal foibles mean nothing, whether they be Dimocrat or Republican.

    It's an obvious forgery. He's really still married. Why hasn't the full transcript and all corroborating evidence been made public? Hmmmmmmmmmmmm...!!! :cool:
