A place to rant about politics, the media, and especially the electorate. Much like alcohol, the electorate is both the cause of, and the solution to, all of America's problems.

So much to talk about, so little time...

I've been having trouble blogging for the last few days. Not for the lack of things to talk about - quite to the contrary in fact. As the election draws near, it seems that the republicans are trying to cheat in every way known to man - and have invented a few ways on their own (quite an inventive bunch they are!).

What's amazing is that, with incredibly few exceptions, the jackasses are all republicans (the Oregon dem jackass is the only exception I can think of offhand).

Most of my comments thus far have been - as best as I can tell - from republicans. One of the more recent ones prety much characterizes the lot, and may be summarized as follows: Because it's incorrect to blame bush for *everything*, it's therefore appropriate to blame him for *nothing* - anything to the contrary is whining.

I don't have much to say about this "heads in the sand" argument, because I suspect even its proponents realize how silly it is. However, I am continually amazed at republicans' stout constitution - many big-time elected republicans and pundits have realized the bush silliness, as have previous bush-endorsing newspapers. It's getting close to the time where the only people left supporting bush will be the heads-in-the-sanders (HITS). And because just about nothing has gone well for America in the last four years, about the only thing they'll be able to put forth on their side is the ridiculous strawman argument given above.

In any case, as the republican lie machine leaps into overdrive for these last few weeks, the Democratic truth machine has done a remarkably effective job in countering the lies, and in mobilizing the newly-awoken electorate. So while it's fun to blog with little jabs at this or that republican jackass - there's a new one pretty much every day - I'm going to start looking for something qualitatively different to go into. I've got a few ideas, but if you the reader (all 4 of you :) have any thoughts about what you'd like to see me talk about, your input is welcome.

I agree with the general point about the comments the repubs have been making, particularly the one about the inappropriateness of blaming gdub for everything; in my mind, certainly if he can't be blamed for *any* of the horrible things that have gone on during his term, he can't take credit for any good thing that have occurred during his term (not that there are bloody many, mind you).

And about the content; it generally seems quite good. Keep it up as it is. More cursing. :)
