I was trying to meditate and I just had to write this. I have to vent. I AM SO MAD. I cannot believe that anyone in this entire country would even contemplate voting for another Republican administration given the fucking mess this country is in. How bad does it have to get before they wake up and smell the coffee?? Do we have to be on bread lines?
I get it. McCain and Sarah Palin are like your cute old grandpa and your hot cousin. She's a little like Roseanne when she first came on TV, but much prettier. She's hot, she's a babe, men like her, women like her, but PLEASE?? How could anyone in their freaking right mind choose to have four more years of these assholes being in charge of this country and sending us further down the toilet? I can't stand listening to her speak. She did a great job at the convention performing her speech, but now I cringe when I hear her voice saying the same old b.s. every day.
I understand that a war that's costing us billions (or is it trillions at this point) doesn't seem to hit home. It's far away in a country called Iraq which is somewhere over there in the Middle East. Far. I understand most people don't give a shit about the environment. As long as they've got gas for their cars, air conditioning and heat - who cares about the future? No one cares about what we will be leaving our kids? No one cares about a health care system that is good at making insurance companies rich and not good at taking care of patients? No one cares about the enormous debt this country has? Freddie Mac and Fanny Mae have trillions of dollars in worldwide financing - if they had gone down the tubes we would have had a worldwide financial meltdown. And Bush and Co. have brought us here and McCain & Palin and Co. will continue these policies and we are getting so fucked.
I just don't understand it. I understand that Obama is a tough sell for some people, but under Democrat administrations this country has flourished economically, which is not true historically for Republican administrations.
The other day my sister went to get her hair done in the small town in Pennsylvania where she lives. They asked her what she thought of Sarah Palin and she said, "I can't stand her. She's a bimbo." (That's my sister.) They were shocked. They said, "You are the first person all day to say that. Everyone loves her!" Charlie Gibson, you have the first crack at Sarah Palin. If you fuck this up, I'll never forgive you.
This is really scary. It really is. And I think it's one of the reasons I've been feeling so down lately. Venting helps. Women - where are you in this? Talk to your friends, talk to your co-workers, let's do something to stop this train wreck. PLEASE.
Thanks. I feel a little better. Not much.
