Boy that Romney…he’s got pluck! I thought that was a bit that he was the finalist…that he was the new McCain. I thought that was an onion bit or something. He says nothing. It’s insane. He’s like a parody of something that’s already a parody. I would characterize myself as being left of what people call liberal because I really don’t like the idea that we all accept that government is necessary. Like it’s a bummer and I know it is to keep everything in place now but it should be our goal to go to everybody stop telling everybody what to do. I don’t like this class of people running against each other in these popularity contests. They’ve never done anything in their life. They’ve never lifted a box, they’ve never washed a dish, they’ve never written anything, they’ve never directed anything. I skewed toward my current audience in the last couple…They don’t know how to blow glass. They don’t know to take care of children…they don’t know how to eat their own food I doubt! I bet there’s a guy that squeezes a fireplace thing into their mouth with pudding or something or robocop paste you know? It’s designed to keep them more political. They’re not real people they don’t do anything. It’s democracy. The ideal is supposed to be we would all be farming and we would go “Hey Steve you oughta be a councilman” and Steve would go “FUCK YOU I got farming to do.” Sorry Steve you’re a very charismatic farmer. We need you to go to the big city and make sure they understand how hard it is to farm out here. “Alright but fuck you guys. Two years and I’m out!” Exactly. It’s written in the rules. And it’s supposed to trickle up…that mentality that the guy that’s president that should be like to everyone in America “Fuck you for making me do this but because I am an America I will spend the next four years trying to make it as easy as possible, trying to keep these trains running on time. But you know our predilection for hero worship and royalty fuckin took over and then who seeps in? These disgusting gross oxford-shirted fuckin gross schmooze. They’re proto human…none of em…. and I’m sorry but I include all your favorite people. I do. And the fact that I’m afraid to say the words “I include Obama” for fear that politics turns us all into fascists. You start to get afraid to say the wrong thing around your friends and they capitalize on that instead of going the other way which is to say “look we all have a wolf in us. We all wanna chew each other’s throats out but we’re also all monkeys…we all just wanna fuckin eat berries. So let’s try to spiritually realign ourselves. That’s what humans are. We’re the monkeys that survived wolves by adopting their practices a little bit but we gotta…it’s just such a bummer. Every four years I get more and more crotchety and I don’t know what to do about it. Young people get so excited and you don’t wanna piss on that because of course Obama’s a better president than some fucking repbulican clone in a vat from the basement of the pentagon. Obviously but that’s like saying that Diet Pepsis better than piss. Neither of it’s water. Water is what you need! You’re dying of thirst! We need to sustain ourselves we’re human beings.
