I thought firing off an angry email to one of my senators would take the ragged edge off that pissy mood I woke up with this morning. Instead, I fear it has only fed the fire instead of damping it. I did feel good for a moment as I typed the words, "I will never vote for you again". But like most buzzes it was short lived.
Maybe my pissy mood was rekindled because I immediately opened the next email and it was from Media Matters. Who knows how I got on their email list? Some comment or survey I stupidly filled out during an intoxicated moment from my past. Anyway, I get a weekly update from them with their spin on the latest madness the Right is involved in.
This week their target involves Eric Massa, the soon to be retired Democrat from NY. The story revolves around the stupidity of the Right Wing pundits and superstars as they opine one way and then as the truth of the situation pops up, they opine the other. It would be pretty funny if I hadn't given up laughing at the tragedy that is American Politics. All it did was reinforce my contention that we have elected idiots, we have chosen to listen to idiots, and that whatever stupidity they get caught up in is our fault. We put these clowns in office. We tune into to these clown shows and drool over every word. We allow these clowns to set our priorities for us instead of the other way around.
And I am not just blasting the Right here. Though they have managed to shift the battle down to one of partisan stupidity, the Left has bought into it and is now on the other side of the fence throwing the rocks back. What a bunch of morons. All of them.
I still don't feel any better......................
