I've loved Jim Cornette in this whole new way since I read his endorsement for Obama back in the election season.
He is amazing.

Fuck me if I give a shit about wrestling, but this guy speaks to a very important demographic. Let's see if he doesn't raise some lowbrows.
Typical left wing nonsense. Mainly name calling. I agree with some of the things he's saying because I'm not really a Republican. I support abortion, gay marriage, evolution.
But on the Economic issues I've been right. The stimulus was a load of shit, and won't create any permanent jobs. Tax cuts work. Put money in the hands of the tax payers and products get bought and people get hired. Put money in Obama's hands and turtle tunnels get built.
And Joey FDR didn't save the economy WW2 did.
I expected Jim Cornhole to be smarter than this, but then again seeing how well TNAs doing I shouldn't be surprised.
FDR saved capitalism. You should thank him, Cena.
Wars typically perk up economies. Sure the government funded the war, but that's one of the few powers The Constitution actually gives the government. All that New Deal was, was a load of shit. So yes WW2 saved the economy, not the New Deal.
Scrotum: I did not get owned at POE News. I brought it and Pastbot copped out by acting like an idiot.
Congratulations, retard. You just made an argument for MORE government intervention.
By the time the US got into WWII the economy had fully recovered. WWII made the US the superpower it is today. Why? Because WWII was the largest public works campaign of all time. It did bring the nation together, but not just because it was a war, but because it was a just war and it was well led (well, that's up for debate). WWII is not in the least comparable to the Afghanistan/Iraq clusterfuck for several reasons including: Low public support, as poor an execution as is humanly possible, low international support, money fed into the economy is not spread around a large labour base as in WWII, but to a handful of companies and to a handful of billionaires. So no, the war on terror will not help anyone.
Mind you, Obama's bail out is a bad idea as well, and hopefully it will remain the biggest fuck up of his presidency.
So all we needed to bring the economy up over the last eight years was for a foreign party to attack us so that we could spend massive amounts of money on war. Who knew?

Republicans are trolls, and he's giving them what they want. Still, he's right, and maybe the marks as he calls them will listen to an angry white man.
Jim Cornhole sounds like the troll here. He's just up and dissing Joey Styles just for having a different opinion. He didn't just diss Joey's view, but dissed his announcing.
Joey Styles deserves to have his announcing dissed - he built his career at ECW doing commentary on pre-taped shows. His commentary on their live shows was pretty consistently terrible, to the point where Heyman felt he had to bring in people like fucking JACKYL to bring the quality level up to "passable."
Plus, Joey's contributions to the actual shows (and I was a regular attendee at ECW shows on the East Coast from 96-2000) was nothing more than doing an introduction before the first match.
On a side note: I'd still like Cornette even if he was a (thinking) Republican; hearing him call out Joey Styles so hilariously and accurately more than makes up for the disappointment I have in finding out that Styles is so much of a tool as to buy into the "Marxist" crap.
Also, Jim Cornette knows 100x the amount that Joey Styles knows about the wrestling industry. He's not only a great announcer and one of the all-time great managers, but he's also a good booker, whereas Joey worked in a company that let the wrestlers themselves write the angles (or, if the guys couldn't write, dropped them into the everlasting "SOMEBODY PAID OFF THE DUDLEYS!!" angle)...

Jim Cornette cuts a promo on EVERY FUCKING BODY. This is so great, that I can't even find a favorite bit to quote. I'd just have to rattle off timecodes.

Reminds me of the great Nowinski/Steiner "Operation Iraqi Freedom" debate of '03... which has been submitted but not activated, so look it up on YouTube.

This came in handy during a political argument I had on facebook

He has a gigantic forehead.
I'll also point out that the wrestling business, from casual observation, seems to be heavily Republican. I don't know if the WWE took the side of anyone during McCain / Obama, but they supported Bush publicly both times.

Squealing like a pig stuck under a screen door...not an exact quote, but I think I have a new saying.

it always flummoxed me how pro wrestling fans were primarily right wing when the performers in their medium of choice are SO dependent on cheap healthcare. not to mention the depressing statistic of how many wrestlers were forced into retirement from spinal injuries that could live normal lives from the fruits of stem cell research.
oh right, because the average wrestling fan sees performers as jumping monkeys, merchandising models, or lumbering pieces of meat.
Can someone translate this for me?
wrestlers get hurt alot, so its weird that their fans would follow politicians that totally screw over people that get hurt at all
