Nuts to the lot of them

I just got an email from one spazzcase that I'm acquainted with. I'll spare you the whole thing but I think the opening couple of sentences give you the gist.

Inauguration Day, 2009 will be America's most important civic holiday since at least the Bicentennial, over 30 years ago. That's worth taking the day off work (if you can) and joining in a celebration

I'll admit I find it baffling. It's the same sensation I would get if someone told me a comet was going to swing by and pick him and his friends up and to get ready they had to hack off their ding-dongs. Clearly someone has been drinking the Kool-aid in obscene quantities.

Now, it could very well come to pass that Barrack Obama turns out to be the greatest American president in history. For all anyone knows, in the next 4 (or 8) years, he will personally end war across the world, eliminate hunger and poverty, and we'll discover that his fingernail clippings are a cure for cancer. All of this is potentially possible and if it did come to pass then the celebration of his presidency after it ended would indeed be a great civic holiday and reason for celebration. To make that ridiculous claim now, before he's done absolutely anything as president, and hasn't even so much as walked through the door, is spastic. If you ever needed some proof that Obama supporters are more a cult than a political movement, this is a good example.

Have you see any of those ridiculous infomercials on tv lately? They're all over the place selling Obama commemorative plates and coins and all sorts of hokey knickknacks. If you've wondered to yourself who in the world would be stupid enough to spend their money on things like that, well, welcome to the insanity. I really don't get these people.

It's just a pity that the only person on the ol' friends list who can probably even appreciate this is mutton_mcnutt and she's rarely on these days. From what I've seen, the preponderance of the rest of you are also consuming the kool-aid in quantities ranging from sip to gulp. So how many of you are insane enough to be gathering to celebrate the "most important civic holiday' in over 30 years? Feel free to share your stories of crazy excess. How many of you have already erected your Obama shrine in the corner of your bedroom?

Insanity.

To be honest, I don't envy the guy. In a few months, when he has been unable to get any real change enacted, due to the usual red tape and filibustering, I'm sure people will bump him back down to demigod status.

While it seems to be pretty important in our history to have elected a black president, the guy definitely is not the messiah. I have no love for any politician; anyone who gets power is going to be hounded till the media finds something inherently wrong with them.

Hell, we impeached a guy for getting a blowjob and lying about it, but it's okay that an actor could fall asleep during important meetings, a Texan can yack up on the shoes of Japanese Royalty, a retard can stumble his way through poorly written speeches while waging war on a country for shits and giggles, or a Georgian peach can be wishy washy at us for four years while his brother gets famous for being a beer-swilling hick. We, as a nation, have our priorities out of whack.

please, sir, do not insult me. i too am mystified that throngs of people go around chanting "change! yes we can! change!" but when asked what sort of change they are so excited about they can't come up with anything more than "um...well ...uh...a change from bush!!!" ... uh so in other words, were hitler to be alive today, you'd vote for him? because he'd be a change as well. and he gave one hell of a speech. ....anyway all that to say: i get ya.

Well said. I am totally with you. And apparently more people agree with you than you thought!

Yes, I think he may have made reference to his feline aversion a time or two.

But he also tried to tell me I should eat my parrot.

Thanks for friending me!

OMG - remember the lingerie entry I made in my blog? Turns out that guy is a pilot and right now he's flying over Cuba transmitting anti-Castro television signals for the US government.

THAT IS SO HOT!

Cool beans. Tell him if he runs across Castro in his travels he should punch him in the cunt once for me.
