Disclaimer: This post is more of an angry diary post, like a letter that you write to your (ex) significant other but never mean to send, but then your mom rifles through your things, finds it, and keeps it on her bedside table for nighttime reading. Oh wait, that's just me.
I haven't posted in awhile, and I don't even necessarily have anything important to say, and I've actually come to derive more enjoyment from reading blogs than from typing up my undereducated opinion for 3 or 4 people, but I'm writing because today is the first day ballots are being sent out, and it looks as though we're in for another Dubya term, and I'm really fucking pissed at John Kerry. And I'm pissed at Howard Dean, and at Al Gore because for all their fancy-pants educations and ketchup fortunes they have absolutely no idea how the average brain of the average American works. (Although Howard Dean was just appealing to the wrong party in that vein).
Kerry's biggest weakness at this point is that you have to be mildly intelligent to understand his policies (not that they are without flaws). Seriously, if I hear one more person say that Kerry and Bush have the same stance on Iraq and that Kerry said he would have done exactly what Bush did, I'm going to throw up on my useless New York ballot, seal it up, and send it out. He said that (if given the opportunity to travel back in time) he would not retract his vote to give power and discretion to the president to act in a forceful manner if need absolutely be. It's just that the president is a douchebag, which he probably should have factored into his decision.
I watch cable news almost every day, and I hear about nothing but Bush. Every panelist discussion basically consists of one person hating on him and another person defending him, and the show leaves off with a lukewarm feeling about him. I only ever hear about Kerry when Democrats mention that he needs to fight back harder. Dude, you cannot just be the anti-Bush, you have to be something. Bush is completely running the show - at best, Kerry will respond to something he says - he never bases anything on himself, his policies. You can just see a college-aged Bush and Kerry rushing the same frat - nobody cares that Bush punched you and then did a line of coke off of your Burberry man-bag, and you telling on him isn't going to make the brothers like you more. They're going to choose him instead because you're a pussy.
It is absolutely astonishing that anyone would vote for W now, knowing that he will lie to the country and send people off to their deaths for his own personal gain. I can't wait until my daughter reads about this in her history books and asks what the hell people were thinking, and I can say, "I don't know darling, but that was before the Lizard King took power anyway. Go figure."
