America’s Long Love Affair with Schmucks


You know I thought this would be a funny title for an article, but when I really start to think about it… most Americans don’t really love any of these guys and for me to pretend so for much longer than a title would be insulting to your intelligence.

Every 4 years a whopping 50 percent of eligible voters are so indifferent to these asshats that they don’t even bother to show up. One could safely guestimate out of the remaining 50 percent who do… that at least half of them are moreso “voting against” rather than “voting for”.

I have all too often found myself in absolute awe of the absurdity of so many who actually get elected to public office. Then I just remind myself of the types who generally go in for career politics and I’m left to conclude that somebody has definitely been been pissing in the political gene pool.

I am not sure if I am jaded or a realist or just jaded by too much realism.

Politicians on both sides of the aisle have proven themselves to be less than sincere time and time again. Keanu Reeves can’t act. Every now and then people prefer the cold side of the pillow. If you actually still fall for the star studded cheap romance of American politics… “Stay gold, Ponyboy. Stay Gold.”
