Decision 2008

decision2008So, I wake up early one morning recently; as usual, my wife's already awake and has MSNBC's "Morning Joe" babbling on the TV. In the thinning fog of my fading Rapid Eye Movement state I hear Barack Obama telling us how he plans to continue upholding the corporate/military agenda, after which I can just make out some unhinged rightist nutcake denouncing John McCain for being too Liberal. A gaggle of pundits ranging from tepid centrist to shrieking fascist have a bitching, shouting argument over who'll do the best job of bombing and torturing for the next four years. One pundit calls McCain a closet Liberal, another calls Obama a Socialist, and I think: jeezus, it's too goddamn' early for this shit. It's only 7am, and my brain is already hurting.

Then, I realize that this has been going on for over a year and will continue until November, and I think, "oh, Jeezus, no. Please. Somebody, stop this goddamn' torture. Somebody make it stop. Somebody, anybody -- make...it...STOP...!"
