It’s all over but the cryin’

Well, the election is finally almost over.  Thank God.  I’m sick of hearing about all of it, particularly the local races.  I’m also really sick of hearing about how our elected officials are scum, they all need to be replaced.  Then the voters turn right around and re-elect the scum they were just complaining about.

The single most annoying thing about this election has been the cold-calls.  The phone rings, you run like hell for it, thinking maybe your kid is sick at school or something, then when you get there, you hear some stupid recorded message asking you to vote for whoever.  Really?  Has anybody ever voted for a candidate because of a robotic phone call?  Remember, these freaking brain-trusts are the people who lead our country.  And these morons are exempt from the Do Not Call Registry.  Really?  How is that fair?  Everybody else on the planet who breaks that list open and calls you has to pay a $10,000 per infraction fine.  But not political candidates?  Are they even paying attention?  If they were, they’d know that there was exactly ONE voting person in this house who hasn’t voted.  And they might even find a little asterisk by my name declaring my propensity for screaming obscenities at idiotic robot phone machines.

It doesn’t matter who wins anyway.  You heard me.  IT….DOESN’T…MATTER!  Obama.  McCain.  Whatever.  It’s the president and the president can’t do squat without approval of congress, etc.  And he isn’t all that smart.  He might be smart enough to appoint a well-rounded and learned cabinet, but on his own, the prez ain’t got diddly.  Take Reagan for example.  I loved Reagan.  Now, he wasn’t an economic genius and his diplomacy skills weren’t on a super-human level.  But that man knew how to put together the finest experts, combine them into a cabinet, and then talk down his detractors until they walked away loving him.  Now THAT was a president.  Without that cabinet, though, none of the great things he accomplished would have been possible.

So, it doesn’t matter who becomes president, after all.  If he tries to do anything really worthwhile, he’ll be stopped by the senate.  Or congress.  Or even the American people.  I’m not entirely sure the American people are smart enough to elect their own leaders anymore.  Seriously.  We vote the same incompetent clods into office term after term, bitch about them, then don’t have the brains to vote them out.

And if you don’t believe that’s true, just consider the fact that they voted Bush in not once, but twice.

As for me, I’m just glad the whole mess is over.  I can go back to watching cat food commercials and my phone can stop ringing.  Maybe I can even see the theater signs now that the campaign signs will be gone.  Aside from that, nothing else will change.

And just because I hate the search engines almost as much as I hate the robot calls: Sarah Palin Sarah Palin Sarah Palin Sarah Palin John McCain John McCain McPalin Barrack Obama Barrack Obama Barrack Obama Barrack Obama Barrack Obama Sarah Palin John McCainSarah Palin John McCainSarah Palin John McCainSarah Palin John McCain Sarah Palin Sarah Palin Sarah Palin Sarah Palin John McCain John McCain McPalin Barrack Obama Barrack Obama Barrack Obama Barrack Obama Barrack Obama Sarah Palin John McCainSarah Palin John McCainSarah Palin John McCain Sarah Palin John McCainSarah Palin Sarah Palin Sarah Palin Sarah Palin John McCain John McCain McPalin Barrack Obama Barrack Obama Barrack Obama Barrack Obama Barrack Obama Sarah Palin John McCainSarah Palin John McCainSarah Palin John McCainSarah Palin John McCain Sarah Palin Sarah Palin Sarah Palin Sarah Palin John McCain John McCain McPalin Barrack Obama Barrack Obama Barrack Obama Barrack Obama Barrack Obama Sarah Palin John McCainSarah Palin John McCainSarah Palin John McCainSarah Palin John McCain
