Bill Richardson, & steak vs sizzle


I have seen the MSM focus on H Clinton's talking point that she has more relevant work experience than Obama.

Meanwhile, Bill Richardson dropped out of the Presidential race today.

The fact is H Clinton & Obama’s experience is at a similar level, in terms of ACTUALLY HOLDING OFFICE OR BEING THE LEADER/CEO OF AN ORGANIZATION. H Clinton has great experience at campaigning, but I don’t value this in terms of ACTUALLY DOING THE PRESIDENT job. Exhibit #4080 Gee Dubbz Bush 43.

The fact is that Bill Richardson in relevant work experience PWNS H Clinton, Obama, & the whole field of either party:

1 Governor of NM

2 US House of Reps

3 Energy secretary under B Clinton. Energy is KINDA IMPORTANT giving possible global warming & peak oil crisis

4 foreign policy diplomat/negotiator with N Korea, Cuba, etc. A diplomat as President would be a great change from the bitchmade chickenhawk neo-clown war mongerers we have now with G Dubbz

5 Uniquely qualified to deal with US-MEX relations & illegal immigration, as Gov of border state, fluent in Spanish, & having grown up for some years in Mexico City.

Per Thom Hartmann (don’t sleep, dude is the truth), the FACT is 93% of Americans vote on “emotion”/”feeling about the candidate”. I guess I’m one of the few 7% that vote on policy & work experience. Richardson got shyted on as a non-charismatic fat guy.

SMH at 93% of my fellow Americans, who take the sizzle over the steak.

This is the same dynamic in quasi-gay rap fans who value “swagger” over lyricism/flow/voice, & take a mediocre media-hyped douche-bag like Lil Wang over true unique talented MCs like Phonte or Black Thought.

This is the same dynamic as the society that values sales & marketing “PowerPoint engineers” over REAL ENGINEERS & SCIENTISTS that through creations in information technology, energy technology, genomics/pharma, etc drive the majority of the productivity & innovation in our economy.

Wake up America, time to value the steak over the sizzle.

Bill Richardson never met aq steak he didn't like.

I didn't care for the wannabe prep school dean look. I especially didn't care for the fact that he was looking to sell his support to the highest bidder.

IMHO Phonte is the best rapper of 2007. Lyrically dude is 1 of the GOATs, with the insight of Thom Hartmann & the comedy of Dave Chappelle. Plus dude made 2 dope albums in 2007. Just because yall stay in a Schiavo-like coma on Phonte, does not mean that I will.

On Richardson looks? IMHO commenting on a woman pol's looks is superficial in sexist, commenting on a dude pol's looks is flat-out ghey. Either way it's irrelevant to me.

I know it's unusual for an American, but I care about COMPETENCE & POLICIES. I know, most Americans will find this notion crazy.

DP said Richardson "was looking to sell his support to the highest bidder."
WTF is that nonsense? Perhaps you're describing H Clinton?
I never heard about this wrt Richardson. Provide some links from competent investigative journalists. "I don't belive you, you need more people"

does MSM have a different meaning than I thought it did?

See, in the context I know it, it means "Men who have Sex with Men" and is used a lot in talk about HIV and things of that nature.
