“One reason is that, you know, Americans want a horse race.”
Could these Washington bubbleheads be any more repugnant?
Listen, you fools, you privileged, smug, sociopathic pieces of shit. Politics is not a sport, despite all the lovely useful metaphors you sling around to make us think we are rooting for our “team.” It is the deadly, World War III, nucularly-serious business of deciding who we want to lead our country. And we know now, oh, we know down in the crevices of our souls that IT FUCKING MATTERS WHO’S PRESIDENT. If Al Gore had been allowed to become President in 2001, is there a human being (and no, Bush supporters do not count as such any more) who actually thinks that America in 2007 would be the same as it is now?
No, Chris Cillizza, and A.B. Stoddard, and all you other empty-hearted “experts,” we out here in The Real World do not want a horse race. We are not betting on the results at the fucking OTB. We are fighting for the soul of our country, for the return of sanity and the rule of law, for peace, truth, justice and the American Way. We are genuinely divided, as we should be, over who will bring us back to those ideals we hold so dear.
What a sad commentary on our media; people who don’t even understand these basic truths about politics are the ones being hired to Explain It All…
