the popularity contest

June 25, 2007

   Woohoo, who’s got it going on?  Not congress.  They’re the stray dog in a hen house kind of popular.   Just basic favorability rating in the mid twenties?  Confidence at 14%?  Wow, thats worse than George Bush.  Do you suppose it’s because once again the electorate was hoodwinked by a bunch of scoundrels?  Say it isn’t so.  How many times in a row is that?  Ever since the contract with America.  Thats been excoriated by the opposition for years, but it was their fair haired boy, the most popular president in decades, Bill Clinton that made it happen.

   In, what, 150 plus days the only thing they’ve accomplished is raising the minimum wage?  Well hallelujah.  That has to resonate with the electorate.  Who does that benefit?  Illegal aliens…can’t vote….teens…..can’t vote.  Maybe somewhere in the country other people make the minimum wage, but here in Indy, if you’re an adult you’re syatying out at at least $7.00 an hour anyway.  Still not enough to liveo n, but right in line with that smoking hot new minimum wage law.

We any closer to out of Iraq? nope.  Any closer to cleaning up that outhouse? Not one bit.  We gave the keys to the coffers to the biggest scalawags available.  It’s a lot of fun to run against the unpopular, but not so much so trying to do their job I reckon.

   The senate is a piece of work.  How many hours have they spent trying to ram through an illegal immigration bill that makes nobody but the elite happy?  Who really wants this thing?  Immigrants don’t.  They got here the hard way.  Illegal immigrants don’t.  They’ll lose their jobs if they go home.  The middle class don’t.  They’re tired of fighting off people for jobs that used to pay decently, and funding the social programs for the same people competing for their jobs.  The only people that want this are corporations and the politicians they support.

   So with congrees less popular than dick cheney; (gawd that makes me chuckle) , who’s running for president? Congress for the most part.  Not just any of them either.  Some of the worst of them.  You got Dr. No, Ron Paul perpetually hiding behind the constitution to keep from looking like the ultra conservative that he has always been based on his voting record.  You have Hillary Clinton, the democratic front runner that is so crooked the new miracle corkscrew was designed based on her character.  This woman has committed more felonies than Charlie Manson, and her ethical breaches could fill the encyclopedia brittanica.

breathe, criminy breathe….Barack Obama has decided to be our religious leader from the left, and his position on the issues are so muddled that if he’s standing on anything its quicksand.  It’s an awful scary thought but the only candidate I feel is trustworthy is Mike Gravel.  Damn was he a dick at the debate or what?  It was fun to watch them all sit silently uncomfortable as he berated them for being nefarious on issue after issue.  Hell, he called hillary a liar to her face and she just sat there, hands folded with that smile that looks like she just sucked on a lemon.  That was damn good tv.  If you missed it go find the you tube clips….priceless.

   Joe Biden is one that I would kind of like to vote for.  He however has already made the gaffe that keeps on giving; insulting black people everywhere with his characterization of Barack Obama as the first intelligent clean (paraphrase) african american to run for president.

I keep coming back to Ron Paul.  He seems like a decent enough guy, he says all the right things about the 5 or 6 issues that the media finds important. (has anyone in the media said the words Social Security in the last two months).   What he stands for though is the impossible.  The militia’s dream candidate.  States right, and lets go down with the ship like the fathers of our country planned it 26,00 intellect years ago.

   I’d talk about more of these clowns; about Rudy and his doper staff, and about Fred  “toe in the water” thompson, but whats the point.  They tend to make me sick to my stomach, and I have a rabbit that wants to hump my leg.

Oh yeah, michael bloomberg.  Why not?  Smart enough to make enough to fund his own campaign.  Successful republican mayor of NYC though he is pretty much a centrist democrat?  This guy could work.

Wonder if he needs a slightly dilapidated, cynical, hate- em- all Hamas member for a running mate?

I’m not really in Hamas, but right now they’re the only team that’s winning.
