Stupid People

I don't usually post things with a severe political hue, or engage in too many conversations about politics as of late, because it makes my ass hurt. I will however make this tiny little, small little, teeny-weeny little comment...okay maybe just 2 eentsy weentsy...or perhaps 3 itty bitty things observed after watching the debates tonight...

One...Katie Couric and some other dude not important enough for me to know or care about his name were interviewing a group of "undecided" folks right after the debate to see if anyone was "swayed" more toward one side or the other after hearing the arguments. Now, I listened to what everyone had to say, but it occurred to me that...we really have a lot of people out here that use...hmmm...how do I say this... "creative" criteria for deciding who they will vote for. I also have my reservations about the Black man who was on the front row, but for the sake of argument, I will keep that to myself...that is of course unless you want to e-mail me and engage in the conversation otherwise. Anyways...

(Two) It seems that over and over people kept saying..."Obama keeps talking about if we vote for McCain that we will endure 4 more years of the same policies that have plagued us for the last 8 years, but Democrats have been in Congress for the past 2 years, and no change has occurred." Now I have never claimed and professed to be an expert on politics, and have probably been more in tune this year than I ever have in my 12 years of voting. But something about that statement bothers me...Don't these IDIOTS know better than to make a statement like that? I mean seriously...do people in America think that it will take 2 years or less to fix the fucking MESS that Dubya (I got that from someone who comments on Nance's blog and I rather like it) made of this country?!?!? What frapping rock have they been living under? I don't care what party you're affiliated with, that is ignorance at its best and is totally absurd.

(Three) It pisses me off beyond pisstivity to see Republicans mis-speak time and time again, engage in malicious attacks, and not repudiate the blasphemist comments at their gatherings without consequence. But when Obama makes one "wrong" move, or gives the slightest notion that he will in any way attack Palin or any of the other jerks on that ticket, he is painted as if he is Lucifer in the flesh.

McCain kept asking for repudiation...why didn't he repudiate Palin's claim that Obama "pows (or is it 'pals--' I guess I can't decipher her thick foreign...oops, I mean Alaskan accent) around with terrorists?" Why does McCain think that it's okay to encourage Americans to condemn Obama for some bullshit that happened when he was 8 years old? Since when did affiliation with Ayers become a "qualification" to lose an election? And what's more sad is there are some stupid ass brainwashed Americans out there who buy that CRAP!

It is amazing and utterly astonishing...embarrassing even to see what this country has come to. Is there anyone out there who is proud to say that they're an American at this very moment? I think folks in other countries sit back and laugh hysterically about how disconnected this country is and how much of a joke this so called "democracy" is.

Now don't get me wrong, I am a fair person and can give credit where credit is due...yes, I would say that McCain did a lot better tonight that he has done...I do fear however that won't be enough for him in the final stretch of his race. But above all...if he can pull this off and pull it off marginally, how well will he sleep at night knowing that the crux of his fuckton of votes will NOT be cast because he had terrific economic policy, or a fantastic view on energy, or an unprecedented view on how the education system should work, but because there has, does, and always will be....STUPID FUCKING PEOPLE in existence.

Say what you may...

On behalf of stupid fucking people everywhere, I have to say that I am deeply offended by your characterization of us as...

Oh, who am I kidding? You are completely right on this one. I have no idea how anyone can claim to be undecided at this point.

tera--just breathe. people who SAY they are "undecided" aren't. they are just "not saying who they're voting for." they don't want to declare at this point is really more like it. they aren't all that invested in the outcome; they feel disconnected from the process; they don't feel as if the President really affects their lives. of course, that's stupid. they aren't as politically savvy or passionate, so they claim to be "undecided" for the drama.
Here's a great op-ed piece about it. You might enjoy it.

You know what's stupid? Having a blog and not posting.

Oh, I have thrown down the gauntlet and you are going to kill me, for sure. Oh well, it'll be a fun death.

M. Robert Turnage said...

NoR, I keep expecting a comment like that from you on my blog any day now. Soon. I'll have another post up soon. I blame work and an unhealthy work/life balance right now.

Tera said...

MrT~Do you normally cuss? LOL!

Nance~You're right, as usual :)

NoR~You know, only you (and sometimes Nina) can get away with that shit! Thus, I will let you slide on this one :)

MrT~Hey stop trying to get people to chew you out via my comments...not cool dude!
