Yes, West Virginia, there is a freakin Santa Claus
Hope springs eternal here in Gladesville, but now they may actually be a good reason for it. I called my dad yesterday to wish him a happy Thanksgiving, and we slid into an interesting politics discussion (flavored, in part, by a few scotches on the rocks, I think). My dad, a self-described grassroots Republican, and who canvassed his neighborhood on behalf of Dubya during the last so-called election, thinks cowboy George has became a raving asshole! He is even setting pen to paper to inform the Thief in Chief of his opinion (ignoring my response that the dork doesn't care what my dad thinks of him or anything else).
Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying there's a great Democratic alternative out there. Those of you who know me must know that I think of Democraps and Repooplicans as two sides of the same lousy coin, pretending to be at odds to distract from the shitty reality of the Corporatocracy.
But who could possibly be worse than that monkey currently in the oval office? Surely no other idiot would drag us into war after war, decimate our economy and federal budget to give Dick an $85,000 personal income tax cut, sanction the rape of our civil rights (except gun laws), have his rich cronies blow our pensions, and do it all in the name of the christian god? Sick fuck.
Ouch, fell off my very high soapbox there. Anywho, if my dad is ragging on Boy George, there must a landslide of similarly-situated righties turning away from the GOP. Yeeeeeeeeeeeeha!
