Election Coverage

John McCain. Truck Nutz.

It seems like the big post-election question (other than what kind of puppy the Obamas are getting) seems to be: where is the Republican party going to go now? It’s obvious that there needs to be some re-thinking and strategizing happening. The clunky, directionless McCain campaign lost by reaching to the religious right at the last minute, while the sleek, sexy, l33t Obama campaign did the internet all over the Republicans’ faces. So how is the GOP regrouping?

Rest assured, the best and brightest are on it. Why, just saunter on over to rebuildtheparty.com where user-submitted strategies were discussed, voted on, and eventually incorporated into a 10-point plan for the future. I read the whole thing. It is super boring.

Reading the user-submitted ideas was pretty interesting, though. Especially this one espousing greater inclusion, less emphasis on religious morality, etc etc. Basically: social liberalism. Curious to see how other members of the party felt about this proposal, I clicked through to the comments. It is quite the lively discussion. There are a few Christians on there saying over and over again that accepting baby killing and sodomy is a bad bad bad idea, a few Republicans saying it’s necessary, a few liberals just on there to gloat, but overwhelmingly, the message is: Truck Nutz.

Take this exchange, for example. A user named Goal Oriented writes:

I think our Conservatism needs more capitalization, not less. For example “conservative” this looks WEAK. “CONSERVATIVE!!!” THIS IS FORCEFUL, POTENT, and AGGRESSIVE. THIS IS THE PARTY WE NEED TO BE. Say goodbye to conservatism and Conservatism, this is the age of the CONSERVATIVES!.

In response, CamionetaCajones writes:

I agree with gaol oriented:

“I think our Conservatism needs more capitalization, not less. For example “conservative” this looks WEAK. “CONSERVATIVE!!!” THIS IS FORCEFUL, POTENT, and AGGRESSIVE.”

Say it loud, I’m TRUCKNUTZ and I’M PROUD!

Or this, from NuttyNuttyBoy:

All yer small “c” conservatives are belong to TruckNutz!
All yer small “c” conservatives are belong to TruckNutz!
All yer small “c” conservatives are belong to TruckNutz!
All yer small “c” conservatives are belong to NUTZ!

Or my personal favorite, from someone who has taken on the moniker ‘Michel Foucault’:

In this central and centralized humanity, the effect and instrument of complex power relations, bodies and forces subjected by multiple mechanisms of “incarceration,” objects for discourses that are in themselves elements for this strategy, we must hear the distant roar of trucknutz.

The future’s so bright, I gotta wear… truck nutz.

John McCain is Citizen McCain

When the inevitable remake of Citizen Kane comes around for an edgier post 9/11, web 2.0-y, 18-34 male demographic, I bet it’ll have Zac Efron and Nick Jonas investigating the death of John McCain (portrayed by Wilford Brimley), and his final word, Maverick.

It turns out that Maverick was a reference to Tom Cruise’s character, Pete “Maverick” Mitchell, in Top Gun. Or was it a reference to the 1994 film, Maverick starring Mel Gibson? Nevertheless, twist ending! Surprise!

Obama-rama Lama Ding Dong

Since professional wrestling was one of the corner stones of my existence growing up (former hardcore belt champion in my 8th grade’s illicit backyard wrestling promotion), I was bemused to hear in January that The Real American himself, Hulk Hogan was endorsing Barack Obama. Which is funny because I remember when everybody was making Barack/The Rock puns way back in the day, in like March. But The Rock is a Republican. Regardless.

Today Obama is on deck for some coverage, of the election type!
