Be Like Water : Occupy Sandy

Don't get set into one form, adapt it and build your own, and let it grow, be like water...Now you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup; You put water into a bottle it becomes the bottle; You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.
Bruce Lee


Human suffering, created by a killer storm,  renders political bickering and horse-race elections meaningless, pushing the endless commentaries and political prevarications of shape-shifters and chronic bullshit artists like Ann Coulter far off the radar. Exposing their innate meanness and signifying an impending loss of relevance in light of  mass mobilization and support for Sandy's victims. NY Times

The Polls, Sandy, and Election Prognostications

 

If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie.


It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

To Prez : He Doesn't Know It's A Damn Show, He Thinks It's a Fight



You're the Prez, and you woke up today with one hell of a post-debate hangover.


Given your vaunted rhetorical skills, this was all supposed to be a piece of cake. The swing states were trending your way. There was John King on the CNN electoral map placing even maybe North Carolina back in blue. You - well, your predecessor - kicked serious ass at your convention while your opponent stumbled and struck obsequious poses, before sticking his foot in his mouth - repeatedly. Post-mortems abound for the antiquated, decaying GOP, whose 2012 brand of screw-younomics appear to fall on increasingly on deaf ears.

Scoring Political Points vs. Direct Civic Engagement



Presidential debates are for selling the candidate to viewers at close range,  and promising policy changes with which will make everything all right.

For candidates, it's a high-risk, low reward affair, with few prospects for altering election outcomes. The one exception being Nixon's disastrous, televised 1960 sweat-fest - a contrast to the cool and collected JFK.


While candidates and their handlers fret about blowing it with the red light on, media execs are grateful for the occasion to satiate advertisers and chase demographics Washington Post
