Oh, for crying out loud. This is why I have nothing to do with politics.
Important Announcement: Your President Is An Asshole
Obviously Melissa McEwan dislikes Georgie. Gee, ya think? To which my response is: So what? What does that have to do with anything?
I’ve seen this too many times to count. Liberals/lefties (and some Repubs/conservatives, but mostly liberals) frothing at the mouth over something that doesn’t amount to a hill of beans. I mean, what difference does it make if Bush picked up someone in his pickup? (If that’s even his pickup, and not something loaned for the photo-op.) After all, he’s at his ranch, not the White House (and I don’t think his outfit looks that bad).
So she hates George Bush. That’s so obvious it’s boring. You know it, we know it, there’s still not quite two years to go, get over it. You have your Democratic Congress, and will have a Democratic President, and still won’t be able to get a frakking thing done, because that’s just the nature of the beast.
What is more unsettling is the contempt she seems to have for people who really do work on a ranch, really do wear jeans, and really eat barbeque and Buster Bars. Whether you call them rednecks, or drugstore cowboys, or even real cowboys…maybe I’m reading her wrong, but she seems to be slamming those people, and I for one don’t appreciate it.
Or maybe she’s just slamming Georgie for being a “poseur”. To which I still say: So what? Let him go on his merry way. In two years he’ll be gone, and y’all can do whatever the hell you want.
