Okay, now I’m in


I put together a comprehensive chart describing my interest in this political season.
Palin interest chart
You will note the distinctive similarities in January, February, and pretty much all the other months. My point being, other than bashing/worshiping Obama, there’s not really been anything to do. Believe it or not, some people aren’t interested in him.
Not even me. Don’t let the copious use of the tags fool you, I don’t much find anything about Obama even remotely interesting. Just thought I’d try my hand at ridiculing this guy, because he could be the president. It’s got the liberals through the 00s so far, so it must be fun, right?
But the announcement of Sarah Palin sure has changed all that. Mainly because…
…because she’s not one of them. And by ‘them’ I mean the other three fellas that are going to have a reason to nuke Iran in the next couple of years. So now I go from begrudging support to hope. It sounds weird coming out of my mouth.
But this is that genuine hope that started the Republican revolution in ‘94. The same revolution that ended around, say, ‘96. Hope — real hope — that we could finally get the litter cleaned out of Washington D.C.
I’ve completely given up on the Republicans (how come we only have two parties, anyways?). What I am is so dissimilar to any of my former fellow Republicans as to make me the outsider. To paraphrase Zel Miller, I didn’t leave the Republican Party, the Republican Party left me.
But now my vote, for so many complicated reasons, goes to McCain. Most definitely not because I’m a fan. Actually, I’m quite the opposite. But the only real hope I can see for getting away from the politics as usual is to get somebody like Sarah Palin in a position of power.
I’m voting for change, and I’m voting Republican. Who would’ve thought that?
ADDED: Now, I too, have Hope

    Oh come on Mac, we know you are only in it for the hot babe. We’ll take the vote, thank you!

    I was trying to avoid that angle, actually.

    Oh for cryin’ out loud. You are so easy. Couldn’t you have waited until the convention was over at least?

  4. Mac says:

    Look, it was supposed to be Cheny, Bush, then me, but they cancelled all that. Like I had any other choice? Yet another hurricane ruins my chance in the spotlight.

    Yeah, all that hot air from the DNC had to go somewhere. Woulda been a smart move to wait a week until it all settled.
