I put together a comprehensive chart describing my interest in this political season.
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
