Ha ha ha politics

This is one of the very few political statements you’ll see me write, mostly because I don’t give a shit and therefore don’t complain too often. Also, people who talk a lot about politics are about as interesting as urethral blockage, it’s interesting to watch someone’s face turn purple with the exertion, but after a while your mind wanders and you start praying for embolism.
James Lileks tends to go on and on about politics. i can get through about a paragraph or two before my mind wanders. Mostly I go to read the cute kid stories and then take off after the Bush-kissing starts. In his latest Bleat he has this paragraph about Kerry (who he dislikes) and Bush (who he seemingly likes):
So Teresa Heinz-Kerry passes out buttons that say �Asses of Evil,� with pictures of Bush, Cheney, Rummy and Ashcroft on them. There you have it: the President of the United States is an Evil Ass. I�d love for someone to put this question to Kerry in the debate: Senator Kerry, your wife handed out buttons that called the President an Evil Ass. Do you believe he is Evil, an Ass, or both? And if I may follow up, I�d like to ask if you can possibly imagine Laura Bush doing that. Thank you.
James, seriously, if Laura Bush, even once in her life did something with emotion, if she in anyway broke out of her zoned out, coked up, pill filled existence and performed an act with any sort of emotion, I’d shit a brick. Really. I would excrete a fully formed brick, in public, for the amusement of others. With mortar.
I mean all she’d have to do is blink and I’d be down at Peavey Plaza with my pants at my knees.
It’s about time someone’s spouse supported them by showing some balls. Asses of evil? Probably not all of them, they aren’t smart enough to be evil (with the exception of Cheney, Satan probably learned some of his best tricks while suckling at Cheney’s teat). Asses? Well yeah, you can’t be in politics without being an ass, it’s part of the game.
You wanna talk about class, let’s talk about the single, most horrifying terrorist attack happening on your watch and you turning it around and using it as the backdrop to highlight what a strong and dedicated president you have been? Ha!
