So I'm listening to Ed Schultz on Air America (620 AM) today. (Air America is generally clueless but I love to listen to talk radio and there isn't anything else when KBOO is playing music.)And ol' Big Eddy starts talking about why we lost the election(we DIDN'T lose it,asshole).He says to some caller that the problem is with perceived differences in "values" between Dems and Repubs.He then goes goes on to suggest, ostensibly hypothetically,that maybe the Dems would be better off dumping their support for gay marriage to appease the rural voters out there.He asked why gays need to get married anyway,since its basically a religious ritual.He didn't sound very "hypothetical", however.He sounded like a whiny brat looking for any way to avoid responsibility.When are these stupid Dems going to learn?
It's taken a long time for me to get it through my head,I guess.I used to say to people,no,no,the Democrats ARE different than Republicans.They'll always throw a few more bones to the poor,etc.Then I started thinking about what happened to welfare under Clinton.
After the "election", I saw John Kerry roll over and concede and save his pathetic political career rather than fight to restore the little bit of democracy we had left.Maybe he and bush planned it all along.Maybe not. Anyway,I'm ready to face up to the truth:Democrats are as big of shitbags as the Republican demons,just as evil,just as spineless.And I want to apologize for the many times I posted here,urging people to vote for the lesser of two evils.I've learned my lesson.
Vive le resistance!
