P.S., Your Elected Officials Think You're A Moron!
Let's start with the potatoes (hey, I'm Irish) before we get to the meat. I have never read P.S., I Love you nor ever plan on doing so. And the fact that a romantic "comedy" starring Hillary Swank as a supposed physically attractive female is so fucking aggravating that every time I see a copy of the book at work I want to them all up James Frey's ass. Really, (s)he's still just a sock stuffing 10 year old boy. That same hatred can be linked to the current political climate. Look, we're a country that is never content with its leadership and that is a good thing. But, for once the majority of folks who don't dispute the existence of dinosaurs are eagerly waiting for Colonel Clusterfuck to head back to Texas (not me, I want that fucker AND Clemens out of my country. No that wasn't a typo. I'm a Texan first and American second. SECEDE!) and set puppies ablaze before turning the country into one big oil fire just because he can. The campaigning for the upcoming election has been so base and intellectually insulting that I just want whoever the fuck the Democrats run to just start fucking things up in a different direction so I won't have to hear these pussies talk shit to each other over everything. But what is more troubling is the marketing (I'm done with "campaigning" when it comes to politics) that seems to try to get the most marginal of fucking dolts to vote based solely on perceived hipdom and being "en fuego" with pop culture. Check out Hillary's contribution or Huckabee's and tell me these people aren't spitting on our minds. The youtube debates were a fucking sham. A couple of cats asked some good questions but the candidates from both parties seemed to spend more time blowing said video bloggers for actually inquiring about policy plans with depth (hey, I can understand why they were so appreciative) than they did offering REAL answers. And it's because they have none. W has fucked this country 8 ways from Sunday harder than any of us will be able to fathom in our lifetimes. And instead of using common sense and actually taking a hard line stance when there NEEDS to be one, well...they just use empty rhetoric littered with words like "immigration," "9/11" and "integrity" to dupe the person who only gets their news via sound bytes into believing that these over valued , over-ambitious, government jargon spouting dickpigs are actually on their side. They're not. They don't care about you or fixing the problems that are quickly sucking this fading Republic down the shitter.
