Political wackos


Thank you, Tea Party candidates, for showing us your crazy well ahead of election day. Angle in Arizona calls Latino kids Asian (just the latest in a string of gaffes - where were those headless corpses in the desert, exactly?), O'Donnell in Delaware doesn't know what the First Amendment says (also the latest in a crazy series - witch, anyone?), Paladino in New York is a flat-out right-wing nutjob, and Paul in Kentucky is exactly the looney-toons I thought he was. For the first time I think since I started voting, I'm doing my research and voting in the mid-terms this year to do my part in keeping these idiots out of office.

Well i guess according to some stuff i have read that as long as people actually vote the Dems will keep the majority since the Tea Party People are so fucking insane that they are losing votes for even moderate sane republicans

That's my hope as well - that even if there are a percentage of folks who still support them (and there are!), they'll be just crazy enough to drive away moderate and undecideds into *not* voting for them.

Then again, since the Democrat's campaign slogan this season is "vote for us 'cause we're not Republican," it doesn't exactly inspire me. :/

Personally i just want to bring all the politicians together under one roof and serve them grape koolaid and start over

It's a nice thought, but it won't last. If only we weren't so damned human.

I just want to know when certain practices stopped being done. such as House of Reps used to be like Jury duty. there were no career politicians in that at all. and the Vice president was the one that lost the election. not another party member. things were somewhat more balanced back then for things like that
