Yep, you read the title right... and I might as well just get used to it because John McCain probably will be the next president of the United States. Sucks, I know, but it's going to happen. Here's why:
Americans are fucking morons.
Last weekend, McCain and Obama participated in a "forum" hosted by pastor Rick Warren to discuss "faith-based issues." So much for that whole no religious test clause in the Constitution. While Obama gave articulate, well-thought out, detailed responses to the questions, the crowd remained silent; meanwhile, McCain gives the most infantile bullshit answers possible and the crowd erupts into thunderous applause. I'll give you an example: Warren asked McCain something to the effect of "What do we do about evil in our world?" McCain's response, "Defeat it."
Seriously, Senator? Defeat it? It's so childish, it's so over the top ridiculous, it's pandering at its highest level and people just gobble the shit up. He furthered his answer with "I will follow Osama bin Laden to the gates of hell!" Okay, so you've made a soundbite, but Senator, you can't actually go to hell. If there is a hell, I'm sure you'll end up there, but right now, you just sound like a fucking idiot. McCain used to be a man I respected so much, a legitimate guy that was above George W. Bush nonsense, but in the last four years, he's just completely sold out, all so he can be president.
Enjoy four or eight years of President McCain, because it's probably going to happen and there's nothing rational-thinking Americans can do about it. We're far too small of a minority now and we've completely lost our country to religious lunatics, corporate interests and overall dumb motherfuckers. At the very least, four more years of this bullshit gives me something to write about, but that's assuming I'll be able to afford to keep my lights on after gas rises to $47 a gallon. Maybe I'll start blogging on legal pads and post them throughout the town square... like the pioneers blogged!
