(Today's original posting, decidedly non-political in nature, may be found here. If you don't want to hear me ranting, don't read what follows. You've been warned.)
OK, so The Leader Of The Free World (as he probably likes to refer to himself, when he's standing in front of a mirror and pretending to talk to Osama Bin Laden a la Travis Bickle from Taxi Driver - "You talkin' to me? Are you talkin' to me? I'm The Leader Of The Free World here! I don't see anybody else here. You talkin' to ME?") gives a five-second backrub to a German and there are whole armies of mental midgets pooping all over themselves while they jump on his back and scream "Sexual Harrassment!"
Tell you what - why don't you all grab yourselves a nice steaming hot mug of SHUT THE FUCK UP.
This guy is DROPPING BOMBS on people in the Middle East, you idiots. You're going to get all upset because he actually probably maybe might have tried to be nice? Maybe it was innapropriate behavior; maybe not. But do you seriously think the guy was trying to cop a cheap feel? Nobody - no, not even this president, no matter how much of a scumbag you might think he is and how low you think his IQ might be - is that freakin' dumb.
The whole world watches his every move. Think about it. If you knew a camera was following you around every second of your day in public, and that any tiny misstep you make will be given airime on the nightly news shows (as well as being posted on every snarky website from Anchorage to Timbuktu) would YOU seriously try to grope another world leader? Would you being putting the make on the German Chancellor?
The level of "thought" that goes into our political discourse is sickening. We appear more and more each day to be a nation comprised mainly of whining and driveling snot-nosed morons obsessed with fingerpointing at supposed moral outrages while the world around us is being riddled with actual bullets.
Get upset about something that deserves your being upset.
Storm the courts and slap the judges upside their heads until they understand just exactly what the fourth ammendment to The Constitution means when it says "... no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."
Grab by the collar every newspaper editor in these here United States and remind them, by kicking their asses around the block until they understand, that unless they stand the fuck up NOW and make use of their freedom of the press to defend all of the other freedoms that are being usurped daily, they won't have their favorite freedom for much longer - if, indeed, they truly do even now.
Or, if you really think the guy is a booger-brained dipshit, and you think he's the one mainly responsible for untold suffering and death, gather your numbers together and kick down the doors of The White House and lynch the motherfucker. If there are enough of you, one of you is bound to get through.
But, rail and cry and howl outrage concerning a five-second backrub?
(* sound of ripping his own eyeballs out and setting his hair on fire, just before disemboweling himself with a rusty ice pick *)
