|We're all just Sheep to the Politicians|
I was just Thinkin' about this flood of Jaded Journalistic interest thrust on the TWO Party Political Conventions.
I live in Florida, near Tampa, and the RNC was essentially a week of self-congratulatory BS.
And, the tight Bastards didn't even spend very much money at the local establishments. It seems that everyone attending were tightly controlled when not at the convention site itself.
Otherwise, they were transported to pre-reserved parties and such where the glad-handing was tightly managed and the drive for more contributions approached the High-pressure level.
On the other hand, the Journalists, and I use that term loosely, any more, now that they admit to their being whores to the purchasers of the most commercial time. spent their time sitting, in full makeup, repeating the same tired statements until you fall asleep.
The best thing that I can say about the RNC in Tampa, is; THE DAMNED THING IS OVER and NOW the STREETS WILL BE REOPENED for the PUBLIC to USE!
Sitting here, watching the windup for the DNC I will tell you that the Best thing I can say about the DNC in Charlotte is; THE DNC is in CHARLOTTE and NOT IN TAMPA!
Sure, OK, there may be someone who delivers the speech of the Century, but honestly? I doubt hearing anything of substance,only more ADs that both parties admit are based on LIES!
Am I JADED?
Well my question is; What ever happened to "Liberal Republicans" and "Conservative Democrats"?
Is there a large Gulag out there in Middle America that they were all taken to and imprisoned so as to not get in the way of the evangelistic extremists?
