There are 303 MILLION people in this country, and these two are the best we can do? For the love of pete. If I lived in West Virginia I'd be angry to the point of violence. How did our system get so jacked up?

ohmigosh. That was hilarious.
I really don't understand why anyone would vote for McCain. I'd much rather see a Dem in office for the next 4 years because if McDouche goes into office the GOP won't be able to get a President elected for decades to come.
I just can't, with good conscience, vote for either of them. I'm sticking with my plan to vote for Mitt no matter what.

Love that ad! And I love the name McDouche! How is it possible that it turned out this way!!! I still can't make sense of it...kinda depressing....

Ha ha! Ah, those Southpark kids are wise. So wise.

Oh, well. Maybe this will help people wake up a bit.

Thank you for the MUCH NEEDED laugh. I am surprised at how gloomy and pissed off I feel about the primary results, and then I check your blog and it made me laugh. Hopefully whoever is elected president actually has little influence over our economic future and foreign relationships. Maybe it's less important than we think.

I'm still all kinds of pissed off.

I would have loved to have been with you on Super Tuesday and watch the results roll in. Here are my questions...How can McCain even clasify himself as a Republican? Why in the world are people so enamored by him all of a sudden? Has no one noticed that he has absolutely no history in dealing with the economony? Why is no one blinking an eye at his ideas about the border? Are we really going to only get to chose between a liberal and a liberal on election day? Is it wrong to hope he has a heart attack? My second are of frustration is the whole caucus/ primary system. It seems ridiculous to me. Idaho doesn't have their Republican primary until the end of May...Are we really going to have a choice between two candidates at that point? When you run for President, I think you should change the whole election system. I think you should do a blog post on the pros and cons (or cons and cons) of Hillary vs Obama. Yes, Obama is jazzy and has charisma - but such a liberal record. It is so scary that Hillary Clinton may be the best choice.

Salty,
Now you know how I have felt the past 8 years!!!! Welcome to my world. When I woke up on Nov. 4 2004, I literally felt sick and so disenfranchised.

Sadly, the "wake-up" call isn't going to come. Although, it does look like both parties are going to look into more regional and/or national primaries in the future. Although, I feel that is only going to benefit the richer and better known politicians, which is how we got to this point in the first place. :(

Who's with me for a Pro-Parlimentarian Revolution!?!?!

Crop- I thought Mitt was so classy in his bow out speech. I did cry- just a little.

Crazy- Depressing is the appropreate word.

Plicka- All kinds of pissed off are also very appropreate words

Hilary- Seriously, my apathy is mounting daily. Tuesday wasn't much fun, you wouldn't have wanted to be there.

Steve- You're right. I suddenly have empathy with those that voted for Kerry when he won the majority vote, I have empathy for gays and how people can't look pass the label to see the person inside, I have empathy for democrats in Utah, and more than anything- it's hard for me to admit, but you were right, and all of those liberals growing up were right- The Republican party is the party of narrow minded bigots.

The cure for political apathy is local politics. Go to some very local meetings and you'll find that you have a lot more say in what happens around you.
