Vermin Gain on Hermain Cain

by MullOverThis

Seems like Mr. Cain should have read my manual for politicians with game who think they won’t get busted.

Don’t run for office if you know you just ended a 13-year affair with a woman who had nothing to lose.  Homegirl is on television, admitting she is so low to the ground that she can kiss ants in the mouth. Is Herman Cain an ant? Only da could-be mistress, God and Herman Cain know. If he is an ant, a crawler who lives low to the ground and you can’t get much lower than that, Mrs. Cain ought to know. Thirteen years is a long time to not have a clue.

Who brags about being a woman good enough to stay in the closet for a man for 13 years?  Who?  Clearly, MullOverThis needs to supply every aspiring and veteran politician with this manual.

As the vermin gain on Mr. Cain, it will be interesting to see if he drops out, or not.  Although things smell a bit fishy, dirty campaign tactics-to dig up and supply the public with all sorts of unethical pants down with the oopsy in places where it’s not supposed be allegations-ought to backfire.

The Kim Kardashian Marriage Fiasco: What Most People are Missing

by MullOverThis

First, MullOverThis believes that when people marry, they should stay married, except there be some just cause for divorce or separation that justifies dishonoring the marriage covenant.  But everybody does not believe this.  Some people marry left and right, as often as a clean person changes undergarments.

What most people are missing is this:  Kim Kardashian is NO DIFFERENT than many of today’s women who get married.  While just about everyone is citing the number of days she managed to stay married, we need to look at the number of days most people who get annulments, stay married.  We can also examine the number of marriages that fail in less than 2-3 years from couples who cannot AFFORD to hire the best divorce attorneys and call in a moving team to take me to the east coast home, the mid-western retreat or the west coast home on the bay.  Kim is in the same position of women who say, “I do,” knowing that they “don’t” long before they arrive at the altar.

One of my friends had last-minute jitters right before her wedding.  She isn’t the number one celebrity featured on magazine covers in 2010, the queen of  reality television, and an appearance or photo shoot personality who commands millions of dollars each year.  This friend makes good mullah;   I invested almost $4,000 to participate in her wedding festivities, having split most of the bridal party costs with 5 other women.  The friend  spent ONLY $7,000.00 on her dress.  Her wedding festivities only cost around $85,000.00, and we won’t even address the comparable size and cost of her platinum wedding ring, all  kept to a reasonable amount because she and the hubby bought a nice home.  They wanted to be “prudent”.  Look at one hand and add a couple of fingers.  This same amount of years later, although they are committed to working things out,  they often have near-Kramer vs. Kramer moments.

When I told the friend not to marry her husband because she really didn’t love him the way a wife needs to love a man for the rest of their lives, she told me it was okay.  Of course, she thought of all the work that had gone into the wedding, the public embarrassment, and all the things that really don’t matter when you find out you are living with someone that you may love, but are probably incompatible.  Too may women succumb to the pressure of age, the desire for babies, and to be socially acceptable in kidding themselves as they hyphenate their last names and sign on the dotted line.

I have another friend whose wedding day festivities were approximately $1.4 million dollars.  Her wedding ring cost over $100,00.00.  She is divorced today.  Wealthy people are not excluded from the same mistakes everyday people make.  They just tend to make them on a much larger scale and when they are famous, the entire world knows about it.

Yeah, Kim Kardashian is a brat and because of producers and cameras we can gaugue  all of her personal flaws.  The fixation the public has with her has made just about every private moment of her life profitable, to the point where this one is worth more tweets and headlines than addressing our nation’s economy.

P.S. A man, namely, Mr. Humphries, rushed to the altar, too.  That’s another post.

SEX SCANDAL PREVENTION GUIDE FOR US POLITICIANS

by MullOverThis

The day has come where people smart enough to get elected or appointed to public office need survival tips for remaining in office due to sexual improprieties.  Never mind the MORAL virtue we might hope people who have been entrusted to impact our welfare through legislative, judiciary and executive functions should have.  Forget all of that.  Politicians are people too.  They are human and real too.  There is still a fragment of good old countrypersons who  just don’t want to know that our trusted officers brains are responsive to their private parts, as opposed to the hope that  their private parts are responsive to their brains.  We expect that of pervs (short for perverts), pedophiles, sexual criminals, porn producers and stars, sex traffickers, and those committed to providing stellar sexual service to the underbelly of society:  escorts, strippers, prostitutes, high-class hookers, and whores.

Yes, sexual freedom is part of the American fabric which distinguishes us from other nations.  Needless to say, that is why infidelity is such a hum drum concept nowadays.  Who cares?  There is plenty of room on Craig’s list and wait a minute, even websites dedicated to placing wandering spouses with a good hookup or fling.  Love, honesty, honor, integrity, loyalty and preserving our health are notions best encapsulated when reading  a good heroic novel or when perusing century-old family albums.  The world has and is still changing and people who subscribe to some sort of moral excellence are too judgmental, played out and blah.

In the context of present times, a grown-behind married man separated from his wife shouldn’t have any problems having consensual sex with a young woman who just turned 18; At least, that’s the story to which  the first Chinese-American elected to the House, Representative  David Wu is sticking. The fact that the young girl claims it was not consensual may not play out in the future.  Apparently, the young lady knows it will be his word against hers.  Well, I guess Rep. Wu will just sit on the icky bench and join some of his former colleagues  now co-louses, Chris Lee, John EnSign and Anthony Weiner.   Since these men don’t seem to have enough good sense to know how to be a public servant while safely unzipping the pants at the same time, here’s some discretionary advice:

1.  Remember you’re a public servant and what you do in the privacy of your own home or behind some bushes in a park can make or break your entire political career.  There aren’t that many former D.C.  Mayor Marion Barry’s.   Not too many of you can be a straight-up crack addict, curse

Is Dove’s Ad Racist?

by MullOverThis
WHAT MESSAGE DO YOU SEE?

WHAT MESSAGE DO YOU SEE?

This advertisement has stirred up quite a bit of controversy for Dove and the advertising agency that obviously doesn’t have enough Black or non-White executives to get an effective reading on the “racism” meter. Ridiculoids extraordinaire ought get some There Has To Be Racism de-programming.

Mulloverthis takes issue with the misreading and marking of this advertisement as racism on a few grounds:

1.  The presence of Black executives, or Latinas and the like, does not necessarily mean that the subtle and/or overt messages from advertisements will be non-racist, or are more likely to be non-racist when critical eyes will find racism in a banana peel.

2.  Had the voluptuous Black model been last and the Caucausion model been first (from left to right), then the critique from those who nourish themselves with Over-Black or Leftist Justice Juice would find the imagery relayed the “Black don’t crack” stereotype and complain about the that, when clearly, the before and after images of skin shows with Dove, skin-be it Black, Caucausion and the like-doesn’t crack or in more acceptable wording, “is smooth”.

3.  Alas, we get a full-figured Black woman with a full head of non-straight hair as a depiction of beauty, and bird-brains still cry wrong representation.

4.  The juxtaposition of the three models does not mean that they read in comparison to one another to assess the effectiveness of Dove upon the skin type based upon ethnicity or race;  The pre-programmed paranoid racist mind is trained to see that as opposed to seeing what Dove soap will do for three beautiful women (probably representative of any woman), varying in complexion, build, ethnicity and skin-type.

This type of hoopla is well within the trenches of ridiculousness.

Are advertisement executives supposed to create work product to cater to those who are so inundated with self-hatred that they would believe they would be more beautiful as they tranformed from a bigger Black woman into a smaller Caucasian woman with straight hair? Is this what the ad relays or what people who need self-esteem read?

Arnold Schwarzenegger, The Pimpstress & The Other Child

by MullOverThis

K.

First of all, we can’t call the other child a “love” child because this child may not be one conceived in love.  Arnold may not have cared about his paramour.  Clearly, she was a fling, but we don’t know that she or his son had a significant place in his heart and life.

What is clear is that the former California governor’s cheating has exposed his wife and entire family to all the rigormoroll in which the pesky press and onlookers love to exacerbate: these types of Osama-is -old-news-and-we-need-something-else-to-obsess-over situations.

Mulloverthis notes a few things since Arnold is the current goose gone wild:

1.  At least the man provided for his child and baby mama.

2.  Refer to number one, above, when feasting on a picture of Arnold’s no-conscience pimpstress.  She obviously took the concept of on the job training out of context, and to another level.

3.  This thingy quells all fairytales that busted women can’t  get a rich, handsome, famous actor and politician for a man, since this homeslice pulled Arnold.  Addendum: … at least when his Democratic royalty wife isn’t around.  Otherwise, back to sweeping the floors and pretend that child isn’t his.

Mulloverthis:  NO ONE involved in this love triangle won.  Shriver should be disappointed because her husband never realized who she really is, or appreciated her value  or his own worth, to risk their lives by Arnold  bumping a housekeeper, unprotected.  Arnold is another man who let his silly lust and male bravado potentially ruin his family and political life.  The mistress is a silly woman who pimped herself as the less than woman that she really is.

My hope is that the resultant child will override the monstrous heap of mess his selfish parents created when they created him and develop a great relationship with his father and other siblings.   The young boy didn’t ask for any of this, and he shouldn’t have to endure any scrutiny for his existence, either.

PALIN POOPED

by MullOverThis

 

IF PALIN RE-INVIGORATED THE TICKET,  that means the Republican ticket represents appealing to the average Joe without DEALING WITH THE ISSUES HEAD ON.

PALIN looked wonderful.  Impeccable wardrobing, make-up, and the hair stylist really worked the Palin hair-do and gave her a sharp crisp yet feminine look.   Her demeanor, disposition and entire presentation was great.  AGAIN, Palin did well with what she can do well with.  After three days of intense preparation, she did well with the androidian campaign strategy and image she was chosen to represent mixed with every day sensibilities.  However, Palin cannot erase her prior interview performances.  She did not have three days of national, not simply Alaskan,  politics school before Katie Couric.  How much credit does Palin get for dodging questions, crash courses, and uh, NOT KNOWING JOHN MCCAIN’S RECORD?  Or, has she been perceived to be better than she actually was because she was engaging and did not flop again? 

Joe Biden answered every question.  Period.  Point Blank.  Senate experience prepared him to ANSWER any question Gwen could muster.  Somehow over two decades of NATIONAL politics affecting millions of Americans made him the better candidate.  Somehow, I think most Americans just feel more comfortable with someone who does not check his podium notes every other second. Biden knew all the issues, Obama’s, McCain’s and his own RECORD on the issues.  Biden was a gentleman, well-spoken, warm and for those who minimize congressional expertise, watch the debate again and again.  I am glad that Biden capitalized on his vulnerability to the present concerns most Americans experience, just like any woman does.  He balanced Palin’s mush card with depicting the real pain hard and fast politicians feel when dealing with the same issues that lipstick pit bull women and beer gut rednecks deal with each day.   

Palin debated Biden and played slick dodgeball.  Girlfriend is good and masking the duh factor.  I’m too tired to even go through the entire debate.  Sarah Palin used her energy expertise, her comfort zone, to deflect dealing with questions that she obviously knew nothing about, or chose not to tackle.  Her smile, coy disposition, Washington outsider, middle-class status and maverick foolishness was like listening to a broken record.  While she constantly scolded Biden for looking at the past, UHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH,  Palin prefaced her non-Washington insider status with constantly referring to the past:  what people are sick of, the corruption, greed and congressional performance.  The Bush administration and the corruption on Wall Street and all part of the past.  Palin is quite arbitrary about what past should be referred to, and what past is not relevant.  Apparantly, Palin recognizes the past only when she does not want to beat up the Bush Administration to the degree that she would alienate hard and fast Repubs, while attempting to make everyone else but the Maverick John McCain, responsible for much of what the nation has seen through a poor administration.

Tonight’s debate has helped many to finally draw the line.  Biden certainly won this debate in my opinion.  I have more confidence that if there was an unscheduled dialogue with no warning, we would find the Katie Couric Palin again.  And, ladies and gentlemen, we can’t afford to hire potential Vice President Palin a tutor for real Vice Presidency fulfillment and performance.

Finally, the greatest poop tonight was from Palin’s disingenius re-categorization of her ignorance when she asked what the vice-president does.  Of course, now, that was a joke.  Yet, her commentary tonight clearly demonstrated she is not aware of the Vice President’s constitutional leadership authority over the Congress. Lord, have mercy. 

Finito.

MEMO TO OPRAH ON PALIN

by MullOverThis

Memo To:   O

Re:              Palin on your couch

This Palin appointment to the Republican ticket as Vice President of the United States of America has invoked furor from many angles.  Some Hilary Clinton supporters are insulted that some strategists might have actually thought that Palin would be a Clinton substitute simply because she is a woman.  SNL immediately answered with a dingbat versus brainer spoof to illustrate the insanity of that tactic. 

 Many feminists or progressive women are appalled that Palin–an arch enemy to murdering babies (commonly known as abortion)–might be the Vice President or if need be, President of the United States of America.  Palin is highly unfavorable to those concerned about protecting Roe v. Wade, the strides of sex education, and women’s rights in general.  Having made rape victims pay for their own rape kits because it burdened the taxpayer too much makes Palin seem a bit anti-woman or entirely too withdrawn from reality for quite a bit of American women.  But the brouhaha doesn’t stop there.  High powered Republican party women were in-sensed by an increasing public challenge to Palin’s credibility, competence and judgment to be suitable for such an appointment.  They felt the need to back of all attacks on the basis of sex, throwing a blanket of “don’t touch Palin or you’re sexist” on the tough self-described pit bull.  Of course, Elizabeth from The View is so irate with Palin attacks that she can hardly keep her cool.  Lizzie’s party loyalty is humorous and frightening at the same time.  A potent Palin defender like Elizabeth believes that Palin is ready to be the President of the United States.  I guess she bonds with Palin on the athletic-got-some-babies thing, and we are white, so we can do anything note. 

This Palin is acceptable, in large part, because she is  White is a reasonable conclusion.   We all know that if Palin’s name was Sharweka Jones, who took six years to graduate from four different colleges, described her husband as a good old black derogatory neighborhood term of endearment “my nigga”, bragged about her ability to hunt down animals as recreation from planes partially funded by government funds, had one Down’s Syndrome baby on her broad hips, while hugging her teenage daughter who is pregnant out of wedlock, with her baby’s daddy dressed in hard sole shoes and a tie standing by the Jones’ side, there would be no need for this memo.  White people and even Black folks would tell Sharweka Jones to take NWA (N-word with an attitude) off of her hips, with a name inspired by one of her favorite rap groups, and finish parenting her children, TouchDown, Foul, Safe, and Yaga2bkiddinme, all of whose names were inspired by the love of football.   Sharweka wouldn’t even surpass ridiculousness to cause the average voter to have to dig deeper into her performance to know that she was a joke.  All of the other questionable issues, such as motivations for firings in her office, or having hired an administrator to completely subsidize her own responsibilities as the small town mayor wouldn’t even get attention.  As a black woman, O, you know how the same foolishness that is clearly visible on black folks somehow becomes glistening qualities when white people want it to be right.  For your own reference, Tim Wise couldn’t have captured this concept better.  Take a moment and peruse This Is Your Nation On White Privilege, one of Wise’s latest articles posted on Red Room.

http://www.timwise.org/

So now we come to how you become relevant in all of this.   We pretty much figured out that you thought you were an insular entity when it came to white maintstream women.  You’ve been telling the entire world, and they have been gleefully on-board, what to wear, what not to do, what to buy, what to read, what to watch, what to think, how to be hip, when to move on, and the whole nine yards.  An appearance on Oprah’s day-time talk show pretty much makes or breaks a situation because of your influence.  At least this holds true for the idiots who can’t think for themselves and realize that with all of your brilliance, you have been and will continue to be wrong from time to time simply because you are human and don’t always espouse the same values.  And, for those who are Christians and believe in demons, we certainly cannot give you too much regard when you invite guests to summons demons to appear, and hopefully will have the power to re-summons Abraham’s spirit to appear on another episode of your show.  Some of us realize that you are a person who has a right to think what you want to, even if you are an ardent supporter of Obama who has thrown your weight of influence, star-power, and mullah to help Obama win the election.  You are a citizen and have a right to want to see your candidate of choice make it to the White House. 

Just in case you were unaware, a number of white women don’t care about your personal or professional standards in not permitting Palin to be interviewed on your show.  They want to see Palin hit your couch with the cameras rolling.  They have a right, at least in their minds, to see their girl get the Oprah exposure.  Never mind your even-handed policy which has stated that during the campaign, you would not have any of the candidates on your show.  That is not enough, because it doesn’t give Palin supporters what they want.  What they want is to see her in a setting that they are familiar with:  your set and you.  So, here’s a compromise for you to consider.  Ship your couch to Ellen, Martha Stewart, or Bonnie and let’s see how much influence they can muster-up to help appease the pain you’ve inflicted on the moms and housewives who can identify with Palin.  Maybe Rosie will even come out of retirement to put her status signature on Palin.

The other alternative will have to include waiting for these up-risers to calm-down, or to live with their threats to never watch your show again.  In either case, you will still be O and have millions of viewers all over the world.  Somehow, I think you’ll more than survive.

The Lipstick, Pig, Pit Bull and the Maverick Pen

by MullOverThis

The campaigns from both sides of this election are reaping what they have sown, and are operating with minute integrity.  Can Obama’s reference to Sarah Palin regarding putting lipstick on a pig be moderately deemed sexist and worthy of wasted time?   After all, Palin smugly declared there isn’t much difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull.  Well, let’s not try and be objective at all in sifting through the rubbish to find reason.  Let’s look at the subjectivity of this comment, and use McCain’s own words, referencing Hilary Clinton’s previous health care plan and reform efforts as a guide.

Now, that settles it.  With such an obvious standard, Repubs can’t possible think that their candidate should be able to make such a derogatory reference to Senator Hilary Rodham Clinton’s work, and a few months later cry sexism when Obama makes light of this same reference inferencing McCain/Palin’s creative categorization of their policies and prior performance records. These comments were not directed to the person of  Governor Sarah Palin as the inflammatory Republicans, who must fatten themselves on freshly squeezed hypocrisy juice in the mornings, have suggested.  Where was Swift when McCain slammed Hilary’s plan with the same crafty commentary? 

Swift needs to go sit down, or confess that she put her foot in her mouth.  Since she is about fairness,  Swift should fairly rebuke her own GOP Presidential candidate for using the exact same terminology that is now so sexist.   I’m not quite sure if Palin is the least bit offended, because after all, Governor Palin is the self-proclaimed pit bull. The difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull is–Lipstick.  Lipstick +pit bull =hockey mom.  And she is the hockey mom.  Are we to believe that the Repub convention backdrop is what made this funny? Acceptable? Laughable? Laudable? At least Palin’s bark is the speechwriter’s bite, evidenced by  her gutsy record in maverick moves like her flip-flop stance in stopping the Bridge to Nowhere, after she allegedly supported it, and hired lobbyists to secure funding for it. 

So, if there must be apologies and sincere repentance, John McCain, the new-found maverick, needs to be first in line for starting the fight. (As an aside, I love it when people re-invent themselves.  It must be nice living in that type of world, where you go to bed Clark Kent and wake up Superman, because you need to get ahead in the polls, when there are no comic strips around.)   Then Governor Sarah Palin should be next for coming on the playground and denigrating herself to  a pit bull with lipstick.   Surely, the pig in lipstick isn’t markedly different than the pit bull in lipstick, or the moose that she shoots.  Maybe the problem is the lipstick.  Or, maybe the so-called misogyny comes into play because the pit bull doesn’t eat slop like the pig who is–and this is a gutbuster– really uglier than the pit bull.   Let’s get the looks thing straight because that is of utmost importance in this election.  The rock star quality is what folks are looking for.  I wonder how relevant and useful rockstar-ness will be, should we be faced with another terrorist attack.  Along with our safety plans, let’s make sure we have the IPODs charged up so we can be inspired with looks and charisma over competency to make effective decisions, and establish realistic policies. (Sarcasm, folks.)

Then Obama, in order of offense, needs to go last. He could use some female sensitivity training and “sweety” de-programming.  Then Palin, McCain, Obama and Biden should all exchange hugs, cry a little bit, use facial tissues (the kind with the lotion in each one) and kiss and act like  we have: a mortgage industry that needs to be reformed, a plummeting housing market due to record foreclosures of family homes, an economy under duress, to balance the budget,  a need for  new gas and natural energy resources, global warming concerns, a war to end, a brewing conflict between Russia and Georgia that does not need to become ANOTHER war for the United States, to address the increased HIV/AIDS infection and death rates within the US (particularly among African American women and men), to address the world AIDS crisis, a need for accessibility and coverage for health insurance for all Americans, to eradicate abortion, to address teenage pregnancy (sorry, it’s still not cute or an untouchable because Bristol Palin is effected) and the alarming increase of STD’s among the youth, to continue to make educational reforms including affordable college tuitions and alternate schooling within localized communities, to re-visit international trade agreements, and the list goes on and on.  Let’s keep those tissues out.  We all have much work to do in the turnaround that must come in the next election.

It’s time for the whimps to stop reading the teleprompters and sticking to the scripts because they really don’t want to reveal  how ill prepared they might actually be to become  POTUS.  Since both parties are now the agents of real change, at least as far as their publicity is concerned, they need to for the gusto.  Show us what you are made of.  Tackle the real issues.  And Governor Sarah, that doesn’t mean bark with some red lipstick on, hockey mom, or re-load your firearm in record time.  It means all the mavericks, pit bulls, and lipsticks, need to know and come up with concrete plans to make sure that this downhill roller coaster ride our country has been on for the last eight years will be over.  McCain/Palin or Obama/Biden,  it is time to get on a new ride, soaring to lead Americans to  a more proficient landscape with opportunities for better lives.

 

MULLOVERTHIS. The Maverick Pen is retired for now.

EN VOGUE: GOVERNOR PALIN

by MullOverThis

IF I WERE A BETTING WOMAN, I’d bet a snicker bar that Obama wished he put Hilary Clinton on the ticket as his VEEP choice.  The Palin Appeal and sudden celebrity wouldn’t have half its luster if Hilary were headed to the White House.

Maybe the beauty queen should stop acting like a beauty queen/model in taking such impactful political gigs, as in posing for Vogue’s Cover.  These types of publicity and marketing ploys weaken Palin’s  girl power co-horts’ quest to see her  valued for her “accomplishments” and  viewed through non-sexist categorizations.   Palin should spend the time necessary to equip herself to be a competent VEEP.  She could afford for a college student who just passed a class on US foreign policy to teach her some basic essentials.  We know she just brushed up on what a Vice President of the United States does. Some C+ student with rock star quality can handle the job with some great gumption.  For the sake of the people, Palin can’t afford one more glam lipstick job.  All this hypocrisy is too much for one election season.  When Obama poses like Phillip Michael Thomas, a yonger Billy Dee Williams, or Denzel Washington, instead of capturing the great look and image of a US Senator, then Palin and her feminizers can continue with the potato bucket full of hog feed.  Palin can’t “turn up the volume” on covers capitalizing her looks–which Obama reasonably could because he has the rock star appeal as well–but want to just be another politician who happens to be a woman and wants to be treated equitably.  Palin can’t pimp and play the beauty queen card if she doesn’t want to be handled as such.

If Palin must do more photo shoots, hopefully Trig will at least be the focus so he can cause the scales in Palin’s mind to be more weighted for him.  It must be a challenging thing for a special needs child to have to compete with his mama’s entrance to the world stage.

FROM YOUR OWN BACKYARD: ALASKAN MAN TELLS ALL ABOUT PALIN

by MullOverThis

This author claims to have known Governor Sarah Palin since 1972.  He too, identifies and speaks quite well for himself:

http://thebruceblog.wordpress.com/2008/09/04/letter-by-alaskan-man-who-has-known-sarah-palin-since-1972/

 

And, the co-horts claimed she has made accomplishments in education and the school systems.  Again, what are Sarah Palin’s accomplishments? 

Where are the letters from Alaskans who can chronicle Sarah Palin’s accomplishments?
