This pretty much sums up my mood today. I don’t care much, about much. I’m just grousing and well, doing a lot of deep sighs in between. The Contrarian continues to look for ways to raise my mood. Yesterday he went online and found the electoral vote totals and the hinge states, and so forth and tried to convince me that this was, well more of a done deal than might appear on the surface.
I have been good at talking one game while letting another play incessently reel to reel in my head for weeks now. I go from elation to depression in moments. I am, like many of you, so distressingly tired of this campaign I could weep, slit my wrists, run naked across the cornfields, or go on a non-stop laughing jag. Any of these things, but the first, should naturally land me in the hospital with locked doors, but really, I am near the point of breakage.
Some of what has sent me insane this past week? Oh, stuff like some already retired matron who waits in excitement to see “Sarah” at a rally in Sterling Heights Michigan. ” Oh i used to be for Obama, but Sarah has changed my mind. She’s so normal and like real people. I just love her.” Okay, I want to scream, just explain to me ditz head why you were for Obama? Certainly not for policy reasons, all of which Ms. Sarah and her grand dad running mate would gut given the chance. So are you telling me that you liked Obama’s personality better than Johnny’s before Sarah strolled into town? Do you realize that if dear Sarah is elected to the VEEP, she will be shuttled to some basement closet in the West Wing, never to step near the “boys” who really will be running the show? How damnably stupid can you be? You shouldn’t be allowed to vote lady.
And Sarah, bless her heart, reads the speech real good, and tells us that dumb old Barack “finally admits what we have been saying–the surge is a huge success.” Oh wait a minute girlie. What YOUhave been saying? I recall not all that long ago, when asked your opinion about Iraq, you claimed you hadn’t much thought about it! Now “we have been saying?” Where is the media? Where is there one intelligent journalist who can explain to you missy that the Surge didn’t do shit? It had to do with a number of events coming together. The “surge” was a minor player, much less important than the Anbar Awakening. I bet you haven’t even had that explained to ya yet have ya?
I’m so glad that you are going to be an advocate for “special needs” families. How nice of you. Explain why you gutted funding for special needs programs BEFORE you found out you were having a special needs kid? Is this kinda like, you are learning about Iraq because your son is about to go there. Never to late to learn huh Sarah?
Oh, while you are at it, tell me all about how you are a tax cutter? I’d really like to hear about that one Sarah. You don’t have either state or sales taxes in Alaska, so just what taxes were you cutting? You might want to explain why you left you mayorality city Wasilla, with a multi-million dollar debt when you left while you are at. They had ZERO debt before you came along.
John tell me how you and Sarah are going to shake things up in Washington and cut corruption and special interests and waste. First tell Sarah that she should return all that earmarked funding she is so pleased with having obtained for Alaska. She was quite proud of it you know. Explain then to us how you are going to take on lobbyists. Is that because you are going to give all the hundreds of them in your campaign jobs in your administration? Or is it that you simply want us to continue to believe that you use them but they don’t use you? You’re just “cleaning” up because the rest of your colleagues don’t have the power to stand firm against influence the way you do huh?
And while we are at it, do you accept any of the blame, after being in Congress for nearly 30 years, most of that during REPUBLICAN control, for any of the crap that you are going to clean up? NO I thought not, you’re the maverick after all. But you did vote with the President more than 90% of the time right? Is he now not responsible for any of it either? Must not be, I guess. I guess we were all just living in some weird alternate universe. WE ACTUALLY STUPIDLY THOUGHT YOUR PARTY HAS BEEN RUNNING THINGS FOR EIGHT FREAKING YEARS.
Do you insulting morons ever ever get tired of calling black white and vice versa? Do you never tire of lying, piling one on top of the next until the entire stinking pile threatens to drown the country? Just what is your game? You say the most frightful things about the evangelical right in 2000, and now can’t stop kissing their collective asses. You claim “country first” which is a bit of sarcasm that is steeped in making Obama something “other” and then kneel down before the likes of Rush and Sean and Bill, and BillyC, throwing country first out the window in favor of “I’ll do anything to get you to choose me.”
The Contrarian says, well, you have to be fair, Johnny undoubted believes that he is best for the country. Really? Well, cynical old me thinks not. I think he is a man screwed up in his head from what he endured. I think it’s wrapped up with daddy issues, and getting his due. I think John is a loose cannon who will not be “f**ked” with, and will have the bombs and fighter planes to back it up.
And for anther thing John I am sick to death of hearing about your damned time in North Vietnam. How long do you think you can milk that? How many houses do you have John? “I didn’t have a house when I was captive in North Vietnam.” That is NO freaking answer dude. Talk about noun, verb POW.
Join your smarmy giggly smirking Giuliani and tell dirty jokes to each other. But please do it out of my hearing for a change. You boys ridiculed each other in ways that only a Republican can do. You all were so much worse than Hillary and Obama ever thought of being. Do you really think that thinking people think that Romney is not so pissed he could spit at you? And they stand up there and laud John McCain as some perfect savior. That wasn’t so bad, but the utter nasty dismissive ridicule of Obama was beyond the pale. It was what you did to Kerry four years ago, pretending that his purple hearts were for little scrapes. You decried such tactics as I recall John.
You decried them until you were convinced by your vile caretakers that you had not a snowball’s chance in hell of winning unless you tried to destroy Barack Obama. And I must say, you have had no trouble doing it have you? None. Kind of makes a person think that you are pretty comfortable in that mud. And your Rovian dogs actually utter publicly that this election is not about issues, but about personalities. How freaking insulting can you elitists be?
I hate what you are doing. And I’m terrible afraid you are going to win again. Because you know that voters pay almost no attention to anything that resembles real news. They rely on those 30 second ads, and take them as gospel. Your utter dismissal and revilement of the average person is complete. I can but imagine as your team evil sits around laughing themselves silly over the latest “Paris Hilton” type ad. No facts, no truth, but it works for the Neanderthals out there doesn’t it? And for all your sickening talk of being “my friend” you hate me just like you hate the American People. You hate us because it’s almost too easy isn’t it? Being elite, smart, powerful people like you, beating up on the poor stupid public. You hate me the most John, because I at least know what you are doing.
So tomorrow is another day, and I will suck it up and write the facts as best I can and present them, mostly to people that agree with me anyhow. I won’t do much to make a difference, but it’s all I know how to do. I pray to God you lose John, I pray to God this country isn’t that stupid, and that racist to deny the obvious. One of you is ready to be president, and one of you is not and never will be. I guess we both know who that person is. It ain’t you John, it ain’t you.
