i'm really angry about the upcoming election.
and i'm not having much of a sense of humor about it. my best friend recommended watching SNL clips - 'Tina Fey will crack you up! it's funny!'
when the spoof is a verbatim re-enactment of the actual event, it's not funny. listening to fey/palin (and yes, i did watch the original interview) be so ragingly incoherent, then realizing that *people want to vote for her*, and then realizing that people think they should be voting for her *when she's not the one running for president, you asshats*...
i'm angry that people think they should vote for her because she's a woman.
i'm angry that people think they shouldn't vote for her because she's a woman.
i'm angry that people think they should or shouldn't vote for Obama because he's black.
i'm angry that anyone thinks surviving as a POW means you should be president. gold stars and medals for it, for sure, but don't hand McCane the country because of that.
i'm angry that Palin touts herself as average, joetta sixpack, hockey mom, PTA head - and thinks it makes her qualified. as an editorial last week astutely pointed out, i don't want someone i can identify with to run the country. i want someone smarter and more qualified than me running the country.
i'm angry that the economy is lurching around, and so is McCane, claiming to have an answer.
i'm angry that McCane calls me his friend. to paraphrase Bentsen, i know my friends. and you are no friend, McCane. stop it with the pretty window dressing bullcrap, you asshat. calling me your friend only antagonizes me. i don't want your friendship, and i definitely don't want your leadership.
i'm angry that people will vote based on who they want to have a beer with, or vote for Palin because she's hot, or vote against Obama because his wife is ugly (their words, not mine).
who the fuck with two brain cells to rub together thinks like this, votes like this?
i'm angry... and desperately hoping not to be angry November 5th.
