I really suck at political commentary..

..and I'll tell you why.

When people look me dead in the face,and act like the bullshit they are telling me is true,as if I just woke up from a 55 year coma,all I wanna do is slap the living shit right out of them.

See!..I can't be objective,or articulate.
..I lack finesse.
Skills that a good political commentator needs to be taken seriously.

For the last two nights I've watched the Republican Stepford Bundists spew their claims of being a force for change,as if they aren't the ones solely responsible for the dismal state of my country!

They've had the gall to use phrases like 'Constitutional rights',..'alternative energy',..and 'free trade',..as though none of us ever lived in the time before G.W.,and his rape of the Constitution.
Meanwhile,robotic chants of 'Drill Baby,Drill!' resonate in the background,while The Governor of Alaska smiles lovingly at her oilman husband.

Okay,..here's where Lush Rimjob inserts a 2 hour rant about how I hate this country.

I mean,I'm not willing to fall in step with the proscribed agenda of the Right Wingnuts,so I must be a subversive...un-patriotic..a threat to national security.

This is the part where any common sense argument I can make falls apart,and all I really wanna do is break a mother fucker's jaw.

This is why I'll refrain from political commentary.

You have crystalized your thoughts eloquently.

Come to think of it, you've also crystalized MY thoughts eloquently.

Yeah, you keep refraining!

You know, I can hardly bear to think about the current Republican party and could not watch any of the RNC.

I managed to watch about 10 minutes before the nausea overcame me to the point of incapacity.

Constitutional rights my ass..

It is sickening. It is also scary for the protester that spoke up and now they are all in jail. Palin fires people when they don't agree with her. The republicans call you a terrorist when you don't agree with them. Scary!

After listening to Giuliani and then Palin last night, I am even more convinced that now is the time for political commentary to anybody who will listen. Go, Sling, go!

By the way, I heard a comedienne call Palin "Caribou Barbie" today. Priceless.

You know I am the essence of control, never rant, swear or take political sides.....but you know what, Palin is a nasty mouthed bitch and if i have to look at Rudy's face one more time I'm gonna throw something at the TV. I am so damn sick and tired of trying to make ends meet, losing our retirement day by day....AND...Hello???, it was no better when Ronnie was in office.

Sling...you are as near perfect as a human can be....Palin showed last night...that she is lacking class....and has an abundance of hateful sarcasm and condescending diatribe. Ideas? No! Misstatemnets? Yes. She may have Finally turned down the bridge to nowhere, but she took the millions in earmarks. She completely misrepresented Obama's tax cuts....thus proving she is lacking in honesty...oh yeah, obviously her choice of birth control does not work.

I Love this blog, Sling..you are always honest and right on target. Thanks.

Its not likely at your age you'll change so enjoy the clean angry feeling of being honest and seeing through the bullshit.

There's a few of us getting round with tingling palms that would like to smack the weasels down...

same here in Oz

You know what? We've had plenty of political commentary. Go ahead and refrain.

However. Political replies, refusals to accept torturous treatment of accuracy and - oh hell - WORDS, political voices that are ready to say: We've been forced to watch you dismantle so much that's dear to us and we've done our part by hanging in there and really, not making much of fuss but now - NOW - we're ready to say YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT SUBVERSIVE? WE have no fucking conversation until you quit crucifying the truth. Your treatment of the one thing we have to work with, our respect for the expression of our ideas and our tools to express it with - THAT'S subversion of the worst kind.

What was I saying? It's early, but maybe a little of that brown elixir'd go over good.

Oh, Sling-o--you just crack me up! :)

I refrain from political commentary for the same reasons... and also because I worry that they'll tell me some lie that I don't know enough about to refute. That would suck.

I have about the same reaction to the current situation. I just get out all my swear words, and trust me I know a few and give them some healthy exercise. Oh, and by the by, I refer to Palin as Trailer Trash Barbie. God Almighty! Listening to her carry on like some snotty high school cheerleader and then hearing the media assholes talk about what a great speech it was almost made me bust a gasket!

Maybe we should all start ranting! Even if it doesn't change anything we might just keep our blood pressure down.
