I know you want this thread and I just can’t say no to you in spite of my own personal visceral reaction to these two horrific tickets. So here it is. I’m putting this up at midnight for those of you who are just so excited that you can’t sleep, imagining that if your candidate wins, life will get better. It will always get better. For Goldman Sachs.
Today you will get to pretend to pick which Pied Piper will lead you to the river in the next four years.
You will get to choose from The Chosen, with the option of Death By Drowning or Death By Fire.
You will choose one of two men who don’t give a rat’s ass about you and who will never give you so much as a fleeting thought once he and his friends take over or retain the oval office.
Some of you will vote 3rd party to make a point. The winner won’t give a shit. The extremists in his party will see his win as a mandate and badger his ass to do really weird and jaw-droppingly stupid mean things to innocent people, even if he only wins by ten votes. That is how convoluted the far left and far right really are. We are talking sick here, really sick parties that need to be placed into intensive mental health therapy–and not as an outpatient, either.
Tonight, some of you will actually imagine you “won”. You will hoot and holler and celebrate, only to find six months from today that you are soooooooooo royally fucked. Again.
But I know you want to talk about it, so I can’t be unkind to you today. But let me get serious for just a minute. You know the rules about personal attacks, threats and other bullying bullshit you have seen and been horrified to witness on the internets lately. Those of you who have continued to trust in my integrity throughout this mean and malicious campaign season – that wreaked of 2008 in reverse — already know we don’t do that here. This paragraph is not for you. However, those who decide to fly over this blog and stop for a nice insult to anybody here will get a steel-toed boot up your ass and I will give you to the rest of the commenters to rip your guts out. You know who you are and you’ve been warned. Everybody else, old and new, have at it, and try to have some fun–amd trust me to keep this place safe for you as I have always done without exception.
Truth is, nothing will improve so long as these two parties have the power to divide America in their own ideological ways, and we all know it. The only time they show interest in you is when they are tanking and don’t really have the power anyways. We’ve learned some lessons along the way and one of them is, we’ve got to make our own happiness and not depend on political whores to keep any promises made when they are pimping for votes. You just can’t throw shit on a plate and pretend it’s ice cream.
Hugs to you all, may the best POS win, and here are some links to the final “expert” predictions of the Presidential election. I myself am only concerned that there should be a split Congress so that neither of these two hijacked asshole parties can have full control of ruining America–something these two myopic, personally driven, vengeful and hateful extremist parties have taken chances apiece doing for a long time now. We have seen the results of that and it’s not good. So far, it looks as though I shall have my wish. If so, then there IS a God, because these people are just plain fucking sick.
Rasmussen Electoral College Scoreboard put together by and increaasingly Republican cheerleading pollster to the point of obvious.
Regardless of who wins, history tells us we will hear the following, as usual, for the next 4 years:
1. The winner cheated. (we learned in the past several elections that this will probably be true, but the real point is, he cheated better than the other guy cheated.
2. There will be an impeachment (of this president or the last president). It’s coming. (Heard every few months, rinse and repeat for four years). Yawn.
3. A big scandal is about to break (heard every few months, rinse and repeat)
I still personally do not know what I will do today — vote 3rd or just stay home. Rest assured I won’t have a third option. The rest of you have the same right — to do what you decide to do. It is your right and don’t ever sit still for anyone saying you are not a patriot (R bully) or you are a racist (D bully) or you should be ‘held responsible’ if you don’t do what someone else commands you to do. I saw enough of that on the internet this season and it just makes me puke, for there is nothing American about telling someone else who to vote for or not vote for. The good news is most of these professional bullies will disappear from your life and your ‘friendship’ after the election– just like in 2008. They will be done using you. For now.
Let the chips fall. We will endure. We are America. We endure. It’s what we do.
To the more realistic among us, I embrace you, because I am:
