This week’s uncaptioned picture for you to play with:


PRODUCTION NOTES:
#1: When creating lolterizt! pictures, please caption with either black or white text, as colors like red and yellow tend to blur badly when I compress the images.

#2: Standard image size for these posts is 350px wide by whatever high. If you can have your images 350px wide before you caption them, I won’t end up shrinking your captions into illegibility when I re-size the images.

MAKE YOUR OWN: The free lolbuilder from I Can Has Cheezburger.

STYLE NOTE: Short captions are usually better. Your goal is 10 words or less, with humor value tending to increase exponentially as the number of words approaches 1.

HAT TIP: Brian of Snapped Shot‘s magnificent EvilFeed – the world’s best source for ripe-for-captioning terrorist photos.

Send your submissions to lolterizt@gmail.com and – if they aren’t obscene (IMAO is a PG-13 site) and don’t suck too terribly bad – I’ll post them for you. Remember to include your name (and blog URL, if applicable) so I know who to thank.

Trending Right

John Hawkins of Right Wing News has a new website: Trending Right. The idea is it will show what are the top stories on the right of the hour based on what people are linking on Twitter.

Yeah, I know; “Twitter is teh ghey!” Sorry, but that’s where everyone is who wants influence now. If you’re not on Twitter, you’re behind the times. You’re a dinosaur. You’re a caveman. You’re a newspaper-reader. Twitter is where you go to find out what is happening right now. Most of that will be about Justin Bieber, but sometimes there will be important stuff to. But if you don’t want to go to Twitter, I guess now you can go to Trending Right and find out what is what.

Anyway, all I’m saying is go on Twitter and keep linking my blog posts so they appear high on Trending Right. Now!

Ron Paul Returns

It’s official: Now entering the presidential race…

RON PAUL!

As if all the coverage of Trump hasn’t made the Republican presidential race asinine enough, now comes Ron Paul with all his nutty, obtuse followers. SkyNet was supposed to have become self-aware a week ago, but I’m going to guess that Ronulans still haven’t reached that point. They’re going to soon be all over here, asking, “Why haven’t you come to accept the fact that Ron Paul is Thomas Jefferson’s second coming? Did the Jews get to you?”

Still, I’ve noticed that Ron Paul doesn’t seem as nutty anymore. And it’s not anything that’s changed with him or the crazies he attracts, it’s that Obama has just gotten so over the top awful. Like before, I would have voted for Obama over Ron Paul because it’s just too much to be a part of the racists, anti-Semites, and truthers he attracts, but I don’t think that’s true anymore. Obama is so incompetent, I’d much rather have a nut who’s too divorced from reality to get anything done because at least he probably won’t spend very much. So there’s that for Ron Paul. That leads to a nice new slogan for Ron Paul:

RON PAUL!: Now the lesser evil.

Of course, discussing who I might vote for between Obama and Ron Paul, I might as well add who’d I vote for between Obama and bearded Spock since it’s never going to happen (I’d vote for bearded Spock; he seemed the most level-headed of the mirror universe). Still, Ron Paul and Trump can duke it out in the primary for chief GOP crazy guy.

So what do you all think of Ron Paul and his supporters? Remember not to make fun of him, because “first they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they attack you, then you win”… and we don’t want Ron Paul to win. Well, I guess that means don’t attack him and his followers; as long as we just stay in the laughing at them phase and never move on, we’ll be good.

Random Thoughts

Sorry, only one thought today, but it is pretty random.

Scroll Lock key? Might as well have a “Reshoe Your Horse” key.

Lasciate ogne speranza, voi ch’intrate

It has begun. The descent into … the race for the Republican nomination for president.

So far, the big noise-makers are a birther and a truther. Then there’s the big government, pseudo-conservative former governors. You got a couple of quitters in the mix…

Let’s look at this motley crew. And then I’ll tell you about the current glimmer of hope I have.

First, the motleys…

Ron Paul. Or, more correctly: RON PAUL!!!!!1!!!11!!!!! Yes, he’s running again.

He’s the GOP’s Obama. Got a lot of fired-up nutcases supporting him. And he believes some really scary stuff. Sure, he’s sound on fiscal policy, but that whole truther business… Simply put, Ron Paul is nuts. As are his supporters.

Donald Trump. No, I really don’t believe he’s running for president. I think he’s promoting a TV show. Or, at least, it started out that way. But, he’s tying himself to the birther movement.

Let me state that I don’t believe Obama is qualified to be president. Not because of where he was born, but because he is an unqualified oaf. After over two years on the job, he still has no clue. But, he does meet the Constitutional requirements:

No Person except a natural born Citizen … shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

But still, I’ve seen trees that would do a better job as president than Obama.

But we’re supposed to be talking about Trump. And that’s the problem. We’re talking about Trump. He should be ignored, and he’ll go away and play a tycoon on TV. Which is the perfect job for him.

Mitt Romney and Chris Christie could be described the same way: conservative for their states, but way too left-wing for my tastes. Like the scene in Hall Pass where the guys see a hot chick, only to discover that, once she’s seen apart from her ugly companions, she’s not so hot. That’s Romney and Christie. And we don’t need no Hall Pass Conservative.

Newt Gingrich did some good things as Speaker of the House. And he is sound in many, many ways. But there are a couple of things that bother me. While I understand why he did it, his resigning from Congress isn’t a good thing.

Same thing about Palin. She bailed on the job as governor. I understand why she did it. But that still bothers me.

I’m not so much worried about her experience. I seem to recall the left all up in arms over her experience in 2008. The same left that helped elect the even more unqualified Barack Obama. While Palin isn’t the most experienced candidate, she’s far, far more qualified for president than Obama.

Tim Pawlenty might be a good choice. Best of the lot I’ve mentioned so far. I know that doesn’t sound like much of an endorsement. But I do like the guy. He’s one of my top three.

The thing is, I don’t know enough about him to know if he’s a true conservative. His state elected Al Franken, so, yeah, he’s going to look conservative by comparison. I just don’t know. Christie and Romney, I know enough about, and they ain’t really conservatives. I want to know more about Pawlenty. If he’s the real deal, I could support him.

One of my favorites I actually know something about, a true conservative governor, has decided not to run. Haley Barbour said “no” to 2012.

Another favorite, Herman Cain, is a long-shot, but is running. I’m not so much worried about long-shots as I am getting the right man for the job.

Cain has business experience, and a long track record of success. We need somebody like Herman Cain. So, why not get the real Herman Cain?

Despite the glimmer of hope I have in Cain (and maybe Pawlenty) I’m worried. Right now, the focus is on Trump and RON PAUL!!1!!!11!

I’m worried that the GOP is going to nominate someone who isn’t a conservative, and we end up with a choice between a left-wing nutcase, and a not-quite-as-left-wing not-quite-as-nuts Republican.

In other words, I’m worried we’re going to do 2008 all over again.
