...ignoring the usual blame it on Obama threads,
or the Obama hate threads, or the "OMG da black man
wants my 436 guns threads", I feel it is a sad
statement of the state of politics in America today,
when you have the only people who can run for POTUS
generally being very rich, very male, and in all but
one singular case ((twice if you count his re-election)
[Obama] of course), very white. Which sets up of
course, what I like to call the Perennial Politician;
you know, the politician that runs,
year after year after year after year.
All with little to no chance of getting nominated,
let alone elected. You know your Ron Pauls, you Mitt
Romneys, your Joe Bidens.
And so, America frequently has to chose (on both sides of
the political aisle) from the same old list of washed up
has-beens and not-interested-ins...a veritable who's who
of what is wrong with American politics....old sour goats,
washed up nobodies, and corporate "yes men", who's primary
interest seems to be able to list the job of POTUS in their
autobiography when they pen their memoirs that few, if any,
will read, instead of actually trying to help the nation out,
and move us forward...
...and we wonder why it's tough to get Americans out to
