Verbal Diarrhea

I don’t know how much longer I can adhere to my “no politics” rule here, particularly when confronted with stupidity of this ilk:

On Wednesday, the I-word came up for California Democrat Senator Barbara Boxer in an interview with talk radio’s Ed Schultz. When Schultz brought up the subject of impeachment, Boxer said “Look, I have always said it should be on the table - and called the Bush administration – as close as we’ve ever come to a dictatorship.”

If that were true, poppet, wouldn’t you be saying that while the firing squad reloaded?

Someone who was born free, and lives free, has no frame of reference for such a claim. Try living in Saudi Arabia, or any number of feudal African countries, and see what you think then. No, our political system is not perfect, and here’s a newsflash: it hasn’t been FROM THE START.

Government by the people for the people only works if the people give a shit. And all this petty infighting disassociates us, the people, further and further from you Capitol Hill whackjobs every single day, every time you open your mouths. (And yes, I’m talking to ALL of you, in every party, lest this be interpreted through either blue- or red-tinted glasses.) Not one of you has a grain of moral high ground to stand on, and if this were Stacyland, none of you would have advanced any further than “Dog Walker” on your curriculum vitae, primarily because you couldn’t be trusted with the hot grease at the “Fry Cook” level.

The reason the whack jobs continue to succeed at what they do is because WE, the people, do not fire them. Of course, when 65% of the population should be in a jungle somewhere picking nits off each other, it’s kind of difficult to muster any sort of outrage over the complete lack of respect shown to us by our elected officials. So, you, people of the United States…get your heads out of your asses and start holding your congressjerks and senatards accountable. Listen to what they say, and if what they say is stupid, make them pay for it. It takes eleven seconds to look up your representative’s email address and fire off a scathing missive. WE are in charge, goddammmit. They call it “representative” government for a reason, and I, for one, am tired of being MISrepresented.
