Don’t let the zombies near the microphone
Made the mistake of lingering for a moment on the Republican National Convention last night, but to be fair, I thought it was a new Romero film, this time the zombies all had glassy stares and shellacked hair- and they were all white. The only blacks in the hall had aprons on; you can tell them from the Hispanics parking cars, they wear vests.
But I digress.
Now nobody says anything of substance at these things, either party, of course. The point is to get elected, and you certainly can’t say anything that might offend somebody, somewhere- but to watch ghouls like Norm Coleman (seriously, he looks like Count Dracula) or Jo Ann Davidson blather banalities to a few thousand rich white people is cruel and unusual punishment.
Seriously, when the following is your message, you have a major problem with reality:
From the days of Abraham Lincoln to the ticket of John McCain and Sarah Palin (WTF?), reform is a core value guiding this party.
Today, John McCain stands ready to reform our nation’s tax, healthcare, energy and government spending policies.
Reform? Reform from what? The last eight years of GOP rule?
Reform from yourself?
Delusional narcissistic leaches, hellbent on proving Mencken:
Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.
