The theater of the absurd that is our presidential election keeps chugging along with all the vigor our economy doesn’t. One can’t blame Democrats for attempting distraction upon distraction, given the alternative of talking about President Obama’s record.

After all, if it is indeed about the economy, stupid, the only votes there for Democrats are mindless drones who don’t care that nary an economic indicator has improved since Barack Obama took office $5 trillion in new debt ago.

Those of us with eyes open and an IQ above that of our shoe size can’t help but notice. The spin of the last 3 ½ years has left people so dizzy distraction is all that’s left.

So what do we get from the Obama White House? That government should pay for everyone’s contraception – a non-issue that Democrats flat-out lied about and whose only “accomplishment” was to give MSNBC something to put in their chyron rotation alongside “war on the poor,” “war on the elderly” and “war on the middle class. That’s about it.

We also get Ted Nugent. The Motor City Madman said of the President and his fellow Democrats, “We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November! Any questions?”

The outrage from Democrats and their fellow travelers in the media was quick and desperate. It’s a violent threat, and it’s Mitt Romney’s fault … because Terrible Ted endorsed him. They hadn’t cranked the high-dudgeon machine that high since they tried to deny the connection between President Obama and endorser Jimmy Hoffa Jr., after Hoffa, the Teamsters president, called on a crowd at a Labor Day rally to “take these son-of-a-bitches out.”

Only it’s somewhat more difficult to deny the connection when the president was at the rally and spoke after Hoffa and thus had every opportunity to discuss his friend’s “over the top” rhetoric – but didn’t. But you know how it is. If it weren’t for double standards, Democrats and the media would have no standards at all.

MSNBC spent the better part of two days highlighting Nugent’s remarks. The outrage and indignation applied to this non-story would lead one to believe Mitt Romney had launched his political career in the home of a domestic terrorist or something.

But again … we can’t expect much from a media that serves as a lapdog for the president and his extreme ideology.

And speaking of dogs…

Thirty years ago Mitt Romney took a family vacation and put his dog in a crate on top of the car. Anyone who has seen a dog in the back of a pick-up truck or sticking their head out a car window wouldn’t think much of this because a.) dogs like the wind, and b.) it’s a dog.
