Thoughts on Politics
I feel like most people thought this would come earlier, but I’ve been busy and usually my friends will take the brunt of my ‘soapbox sessions’. But there have been some things that have really been bothering me lately.
- First of all, Joe the Plumber. To MSNBC: Your rating are so shitty because no one cares if Joe the Plumber is really named Joe, or is really a plumber, or anything about his character. He was used to personify concerns and you and people like Bill Mahr are crucifying him.
- Similarly, Rush Limbaugh and anyone else who says Colin Powell endorsed Obama because of race is an asshole. That is a statement made out of ignorance and is completely out of line. It’s not needed. Besides, if Obama wins, Powell in the cabinet will be one plus.
- There is a video on YouTube claiming Obama isn’t a US citizen, with some lawyer from Philly leading t he charge. Thank God for this one guy who has seemingly no credibility. You’d think some news station would pick it up, but they probably waited for the story to break on YouTube first.
- Palin appeared on SNL and it was awesome. People wonder if it helped or hurt her and the campaign. Honestly, if people are turning to SNL to help them make their decision, there is a problem (though kudos for them outing George Soros and the Sandlers a couple weeks ago during the start of our economic crisis).
I’m getting pretty tired of the smear from both sides and the high powered partisanship coming from so-called news reporters. I really can’t wait until this election is over.
