Couldn't resist borrowing that headline from the legendary 1960s Clint Eastwood flick...
What I am referring to are sports — the Michigan State Spartans (football) and Detroit Tigers (baseball) — and some hideous, sleazy ads the Democrats are running to fire up support for The One.
-- Michigan State hasn't lived up to expectations this season, as my esteemed co-blogger has mentioned several times. The Spartans lost by 1 point to Ohio State, by 3 in double-overtime to Iowa, and by 2 to arch-rival Michigan on a last-second field goal. Their offense has been anemic. But this past Saturday, the Spartans defeated the Wisconsin Badgers in overtime to improve their season record to 5-4. The victory took place at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison, Wis., where the Badgers rarely lose. MSU scored the tying touchdown with a minute left in regulation following a 75-yard, 12-play drive. MSU held Wisconsin to a field goal in overtime and scored a TD on a pass from Andrew Maxwell to Bennie Fowler. Just what the doctor ordered to relieve weeks of frustration and heartbreak.
-- The Detroit Tigers, lackluster for much of the 2012 season until late August and September when they overtook the Chicago White Sox to win the American League Central Division, made it to the World Series with a 4-0 sweep of the New York Yankees. Then they ran into a buzzsaw, losing in four straight to the San Francisco Giants. Detroit hitters were abysmal for the most part, with multimillionaire sluggers Prince Fielder and Miguel Cabrera batting .071 and .231, respectively. Their ace pitcher, Justin Verlander, got rocked in the opening game, giving up 5 runs in just 4 innings. When it rains, it pours. Better luck next year.
-- Meanwhile, back to politics... The leftists are showing their ugliness with some really bad ads. One, by The Future Children Project, is a shameless exploitation of obviously indoctrinated children singing a creepy song about the horrors of Republican leadership... an America "where strip mines are fun and free"....oil fouling the seas, gays can be fixed, sick people just die...blah x 3.... The usual loopy, over-the-top claptrap from the left. But these poor kids bear an eerie resemblance to the Communist Youth League of the old U.S.S.R. This is scary stuff. And then there's that blubbery blowhard Michael Moore, who has teamed up with billionaire George Soros to sponsor a tasteless ad with senior citizens using foul language to threaten Mitt Romney and rail about how upset they'll be if Romney wins the election. Needless to say, swear words are very important to the substance-deficient Democrats. But the ad that appalls me the most features an ugly, tatooed wench by the name of Lena Dunham comparing voting for the first time with finding the right guy to lose your virginity to. Yuk! This loser exemplifies how sick and lost the left is. It's sad and alarming that their side will get nearly 50 percent of the votes cast.
