So we’re up to speed here, yes?

Cory Booker declared criticism of the industry where his campaign donors come from off-limits, released a youtube video where he doubled down on that declaration, and hit a few softballs that were walked up to a tee for him by asshole Rachel Maddow in an interview where he refused to address what he said re: declaring his campaign donors off-limits.

But the donors were mighty titans of the financial industry, so no serious media person gave a shit, of course.  It’s all “process” and “tone” and “campaign positioning” and look a baby panda who convulsively sneezes in a funny way.  None involved will ever be punished for polluting the public discourse, and we all die alone.

BUT. Centrists are unique among members of the class Insecta in that they run toward wherever the media is shining light at any particular time.

SO. It is time for that cherished ritual, a children’s treasury of lolCentrists which makes fun of all the asinine and terrible things centrists say whitewashing objectively awful comments by a centrist colleague.

There are a lot of them so they are off the main page. The last one is out of left field and is the funniest.   The meat, as the samurai said to the courtesan, is below the fold.

Which to begin, hmm.  How about Josh Kraushaar, a relative unknown but presents a strong effort in National Journal:

THANK GOD It was looking dicey there for awhile

THANK GOD It was looking dicey there for awhile

Strong.  But Lanny Davis is the master, and the masters know that The Hill is a grand place to go for a little centrist wank:

Every time I think about the Penn State thing I have to think of people saving babies from a burning fire or something in order to get the horrible taste of evil out of my mind

Harold Ford Jr. is still a greenhorn but puts in a veteran’s performance on Morning Joe, home of the phony tough and the crazy brave:

Love those eyes

Love those eyes

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ed Rendell clearly just likes hearing himself talk but that doesn’t mean he can’t sling bullshit with the best of them:

Pennsylvania Governor Chalmers, what are you doing here

Pennsylvania Governor Chalmers, what are you doing here

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And, as promised, the batshit craziest one of them all:

I alway though Gramsci had the same face as Dante from Clerks.  Is it just me?

I always though Gramsci had the same face as Dante from Clerks. Is it just me?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Every time a centrist says something abominable it’s like Centrist Passover, and centrists everywhere opine on the meaning of their ancient struggle.  Against decency and intelligence.
