Midterms 2010



So today is the day when our friends to the south (the United States) hit the polls and show some of the folks in Washington DC just who is really in charge. Heh, heh, heh, I know, let's hit the honesty-filter and see how that turns out. So today is the day when some of our friends to the south (the United States) may vote to send more greedheads to Washington DC. Yeah, that's more like it. Cynical? Nope, just being realistic. Considering just how feeble your average politician is these days, being pushed around by media news-cycles and all (Republicans being pushed around by Rush Limbaugh, Democrats too dumb to run on one of the most successful legislative records in history) it is really almost impossible to guess how things are going to turn out today.

Yeah, yeah, lots of polls suggest that the right (or if you are talking about the Tea Party, the "right") will be kicking a little ass today and maybe that is true although really we won't know until tomorrow, but it does raise the question to interested folks, where are the Democrats from two years ago. The pundits figure that the electorate is now so disgusted with the political process that they will not be bothering to vote this time around, and I say "what? Are you frickin' serious?" Really, these people are so dumb that they would rather have the right back in charge? The people who brought on two wars, the Gulf oil disaster, and a world-wide economic meltdown? That is seriously what they want? Or are the pundits suggesting that these folks can't see much more than two minutes into the future and so don't understand what the consequences of their inactions may be?

I admit, some of the "man-in-the-street" interviews I have seen have been disturbing. One fellow who claimed to be a registered Democrat was asked who he would vote for between Tea Partier Christine O'Donnell and Democrat Chris Coons. He said that Christine had said some pretty nutty stuff, but he was undecided. Really? Between someone who is rubber-room crazy and someone who actually knows and understands what he is doing and this fellow is undecided? There was another guy on CBC, who looked like a well-heeled type who said Glenn Beck had made some good points on his show while Keith Olbermann was a "complete whackjob". Now I don't agree with everything Olbermann says, but Beck is a babbling loon.

I suppose the point of this post, such as it is, is to say, FRIGGIN' VOTE. Useless butt-zits who squat at home whining rather than getting out and actually trying to make a difference should maybe have that particular right taken away. Hell, why not? They just cost the government money since the polling stations have to be ready just in case they bother to show up, and since they don't vote anyway it's not like you are really taking anything away. How can you miss a right you don't use anyway? Just a muddled thought.

Anyway... Humouroceros
