Random Political Observations
Please, let’s not attack G.W. on his National Guard record or his (shameful! shocking!) use of WTC imagery in his ads. We all know perfectly well that had a Democrat been in the White House on 9/11, HE would be using those images right now. They strike a chord, and it’s all about striking a chord when you make a political ad. Stick to the subject at hand: the economy, foreign policy, health care – things that matter. I could care less whether he did or didn’t fly planes over the Mexican border during some lost year in the early 70s.
I’ve never liked John Kerry much, but include me in the anyone-who-can-beat-W camp. I’ll vote for him. Not that my vote will count for much in Texas. Especially with the new touch screen voting machines. *shudder*
Scary that Lyndon LaRouche, that wackjob, has the most intelligent things to say about public school education of any candidate I’ve heard for years. No bullshit about accountability and the like, but a refreshing argument for getting back to a classical education that focuses on subject matter over testing. Too bad he’s a racist neo-Nazi asshole in sheep’s clothing. You can listen to the interview here.
Quit whining about Ralph Nader. If the Democrats lose, it’s their own damn fault. Yes, Nader probably tipped the scales in Florida, but if it hadn’t been Nader it would have been someone else. There will ALWAYS be voters who choose not to vote for a major party candidate. If Gore hadn’t run such a crappy campaign, it wouldn’t have been so goddamn close. Get the fuck over it.
