And it isn't all because of those damn White Castles I ate last night.
When is Obama going to run for president? We need a dynamic new kind of leader and my money is on him. And I'm completely astounded that he is only the third African-American to join the Senate since Reconstruction. That is utterly disgusting.
I try to understand.
I understand why some Christians vote the way that they do. I understand that many bigots hate gays. I understand that many people don't give a shit about the poor. I understand that many people are racists. I understand that many people only want rich woman to get safe abortions and want to force the rest of the country to back alleys and coat hanger solutions. I understand that many people are willing to give up other people's rights to privacy because, hell, they're not an A-Rab so who gives a hoot? I understand that some people just must own a gun to defend themselves from, um, the British? I understand that many people don't like the French and that John Kerry is on the "far left bank." I understand that most people don't care about the "enemy combatants" who are being held without even being told what they are being charged with- those fuckers shouldn't even have been fighting against us. U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.!
But what I don't remotely understand is how people can overlook the lies told to us by the current administration that there is a link between 9/11 and Iraq, the WMD fiasco, etc. etc. I don't understand how people can attack Kerry for fighting for our country but give Bush (Um, National Guard service right?) and Cheney (I had other priorities at the time) a free pass on the hypocrisy. Now I know that they weren't officially the face of the Swift Boat Veterans bullshit but we all know that they condoned and even encouraged it. I don't understand why people aren't disturbed by the current administration's attempt to block the 9/11 commission. I don't understand how good Christians can vote against Kerry because Paul tells them in the Bible that sodomy is bad, but overlook Bush's callousness and arrogance in killing tens of thousands of people. Is that an example of good Christian behavior. I don't understand how people can look at the current situation in Iraq and think that things are going well just because the administration tells us so. What would Jesus do? He sure as hell wouldn't act as Bush has. I just don't understand.
Unfortunately, the answer is yes.
Sujan does her best Lyndie England with the White Castle feast.
Glen laments the bad news, but enjoys his first White Castle experience.
Jim sees red.
No champagne this year.
I have never been so embarrassed to be an American. We are the laughingstock of the world. Nice job, red states.
