I have to offer you a TRIGGER WARNING (and a big, hearty NSFW) before I show you the YouTube below. I’d hate to think what it would do to special snowflakes at Columbia University who are traumatized by Ovid.
I’ll tell you the same thing about Kanye West that I told you about THE DONALD. Don’t laugh until someone better than Jeb or Hillary is an anointed party front-runner. I guarantee you that Kanye’s one remark after Hurricane Katrina has him living in Jeb Bush’s head rent free.
But to borrow some of TJ Sotomayor’s shtick, there’s a big point behind the bulging polls swinging towards Deez Nuts. This is an orderly, albeit puerile and lowbrow, expression of exasperation and disgust. We, the Conservative Activist Community went out and handed [mc_name name=’Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’M000355′ ] and [mc_name name=’Rep. John Boehner (R-OH)’ chamber=’house’ mcid=’B000589′ ] a juggernaut of a parliamentary majority. They now tell us they can’t quite do anything about a runaway president who regards the US Constitution as his own personal hemorrhoid relief wipe. To paraphrase President Lincoln, if [mc_name name=’Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’M000355′ ] won’t use his army, Deez Nuts would like to borrow it. Sending Old Kennedy-Livered Jawn the tennis balls wasn’t direct enough a reminder to arouse our GOP Congressional leaders. Maybe Deez Nuts is what we are missing in terms of Congressional leadership.
And Deez Nuts is a bipartisan expression of condign frustration. I know, and in fact, am related to some pretty hard-core liberals who are vastly more decent than the politicians who represent them. If they didn’t by and large fear the GOP more than they felt like retching at the thought of Hillary in charge of anything important, the 2016 Presidential Election would be over except for the act of actually voting. Deez Nuts perhaps seem less puss-coated and scabrous than the nuts seeking the Jackass Party nomination to date.
In conclusion, if our political leadership is upset that people take candidates like Donald Trump or Kanye West seriously, they should take a long, hard look in the mirror. Is THE DONALD all that much weirder than Bernie “Uncle McRapey” Sanders? Is he all that less honest than Jeb Bush? Is Kanye West less empathetic to the plight of working Americans than Hillary Clinton? Is Kanye West less inspirational than Martin O’Malley or Lincoln Chafee? Is a made up candidate submitted for office by a 15 Year Old boy less inspiring than Chafee or Jim Webb?
Deez Nuts are what all of these grubby unrestricted losers should get made to stare at for days like the anti-heroic protagonist of A Clockwork Orange. In this sense, people like Donald Trump and Kanye West could provide us all with a positive outcome. It will possibly wake the elitists the heck up. When people like Reality TV Hucksters and mediocre Pop Stars command the attention of an electorate, then the “qualified” candidates are not hitting very far above The Mendoza Line. Maybe the specter of a Kanye or THE DONALD winning is what this country needs in order to sober the heck up and take our collective national future more seriously.
