One could quite seriously ask “Why should the voters be trusted?”
In the not too distant past, just over half of the voting Democrats in Congressional District 1 selected low-wattage party-insider and good-old-boy Richard Romero as their candidate for Congress. This resulted in the general electorate in the district having little choice but to hold their noses and return Heather Wilson to represent … someone, in Congress.
Statewide, New Mexico voters twice elected triathlete and mountain-climber-in-training Gary “Veto” Johnson as governor, and have returned Pete “I-Never-Met-a-Nuclear-Boondoggle-I-Couldn’t-Support” Domenici time and time again to the U.S. Senate. There is little to be optimistic about regarding the wisdom of voters, except that it cannot be definitively demonstrated that George W. Bush was ever legitimately elected.
Music To Our Ears
I read your article and I must say, your assertive and conscientious writing style seeps from your obvious punk roots. I especially enjoyed the line, “What the Gore Gore Girls do is riff-roaring rock ‘n’ roll, tinted with a big lipstick kiss from Motown. Their sound is lo-fi and lubricated with exhaust fumes. …” Of course, my opinion could be skewed from last night's booze. But I doubt it.
More On Don Schrader
Schrader might also do well to reflect on his good fortune at having his lifestyle and political activities subsidized and protected by those of us who do pay taxes and those who have put themselves in harm's way in his place, to include the crewmembers of the Jimmy Carter.
Cashing In On The Crawl
For Crying Out Loud ...
“IT SOBS!” (This is an acronym for “Impeach The SOBs!”) The entire text is this:
“I.T. S.O.B.S … so we can all stop crying!”
I thought of the people on the Gulf Coast. I thought of the people in Iraq … all of them. All of the totally innocent dead. I thought of all of us who have been so duped as to believe that a moron with a psychological/spiritual agenda could lead us. It is all so sad to me. It’s probably not even possible and it’s way past time to begin to remove all of them from office. That means, impeach the lot of 'em! But I, personally, would like to begin the process. I’m tired of being so sad about all the victims of an unbelievable incompetence.
I’ve been crying for this country since November 2000. It sobs and so do I.
