Karl Rove must be taking a bath with his toaster
Once again, I wanted things to simmer down before I composed my thoughts, prior to smearing them all in my usual unorganized fashion all over a post (not unlike monkeys flinging feces at the zoo, as you all well know).
Oh well. In bullet points to minimize the multi-paragraph rants:
-The GOP. Wow, did they ever slam their cranks in the door these last few years. Abandoning their base and their core principles by jacking up Federal spending/ manpower to epic proportions, courting people who shouldn't even be in this country, and generally tiptoeing through the political tulips of handling a very messy war. Should have left it to the generals this time, fellas. You are reaping what you sowed. See this as an opportunity to unfuck yourselves.
-Democrats. You have the ball. But spare me the "New Direction" bushwa. That assumes we were even going anywhere in the first place. Thanks to your petulant obstruction over the last several years, very little has actually been done, at home or abroad. Make yourselves useful this time and quit currying favor with your far left(same goes for the GOP too. Enough of the fringe elements).
-Voters. Low turnouts. IF you didn't go to the polls, I don't want to hear your whining for the next two years. If you do hold forth on politics, and I find out you didn't vote, I will beat you senseless with a Diebold machine.
-Media. Still reeking of bias. Your ratings are in the shitter not because of some vast conspiracy but your absolute lack of objectivity. Go break your TelePrompters and slash your wrists.
I feel cheated somehow. The same herd of hacks and whores on the ballot, the same lack of genuine action in statehouses nationwide and on Capitol Hill, every spit going to political infighting. It's term-limit time, everyone. Mickey Mouse will probably make a strong showing at the polls in '08 as a write-in. Real leaders won't sully their hands with politics, so until an across-the-board sweep of every level of government is accomplished, things will only remain the same or continue to atrophy.
