So just what the Hell have I been doing these past couple of days? Not that you should be interested. I certainly seem to be having trouble finding interest myself. But upon reflection and because I feel this urge to touch base, I flipped back through my most recent memories and looked for something of interest to relay about me, the World, and if all else fails some dumb thing one of my furry roommates has pulled.
Nada. Zilch. The funny box is empty. The box with all the deep emotional Bullshit has withdrawn again and refuses to share. And the pets? Well, they are on cruise mode. Doing their best to irritate and aggravate.
So where does this leave me?
Yeah, that's right..........Politics. That go to when everything else fails subject sure to kindle some righteous indignation I can pour onto the screen and then feel better for a moment or two when I shove back in my chair to find that rag for the spittle I left on the 'puter screen.
And unfortunately because they seem to insist on leading with their chins, the Right is once again in my cross hairs. This time it is their absolutely over the top focus on how long it took Obama Man to call what the undie bomber did "terrorism". Whining and complaining like bad children again about semantics. What a bunch of morons. And to reinforce and cement their status as morons, more than a few have taken to lies to bolster their useless claims. The first salvo of stupidity came last November when Perino on Hannity stated there were no terrorist attacks during Bush's term. Now it seems Rudy "9/11" Giuliani went on a tear and well, you need to listen or read his remarks. Just incredible. I think a doctor should give him some kind of test for sanity.
It pains me to see my former party turning into the group of losers they have turned into. It would seem that the sane ones, the intelligent ones are satisfied to allow the stupid and deranged from their side set the message and the tone for their efforts to win back our hearts and minds. And they seem to have been happy to do this for the last 29 years.
I do not hide the fact that I am an independent who leans more left than right. But my feet very seldom leave the center. And based on what I have learned through much interaction these past 57 years, the middle is the most crowded political population there is. Both sides know this. And yet both sides take turns giving us the high hat.
I don't expect one side or the other to magically move to the center. But I do expect better behaviour from the leadership of both. Especially from the Right. What a bunch of........Oh yeah, I already called them morons. How about.........What a bunch of liars?
