If only Palin would lead a movement to impeach Obama for not being a NBC. Then we’d have nirvana. ;-)

Paula Broadwell and Jill Kelly,
Desperate Housewives on the prowl.
Word is out that Gloria Alred
is tracking this with a scowl.

A General, a top spook of the CIA
throw in a shirtless FBI,
while four dead in Benghazi
on Patraeus they did spy.

A catfight for Patraeus,
nasty emails sent
to a newly minted arch nemesis
sounds like a present.

Did Obama use this
to buy an election?
His minions say no,
it was about an errection.

Though we don’t know,
Gloria is on cue
to sort it all out
and come to the rescue.

Where there is sex,
she is on the case,
like a bloodhound she’s caught the scent -
quick someone get the mace.

Maybe it’s God’s intention to make his faithful more attentive to him by making life on earth pretty intolerable?

Sarah’s done in politics. Tarnished. We need someone new. Rubio is making his move. We shall see. He’s young, with no old rich guy label. Might work.

At this point my political give-a-damn is broken.

Yes, it is likely that in 2016 we’ll probably elect a Republican to preside over the continuing decline of what was once the greatest nation on earth. Woopy doo.

I think those are the, as much as there are any, solutions. Speaking from a secular/materialist stand point.

1. Get local: Make your local area as good as possible. A little oasis in a sea of insanity. No Democrats.

2. Get out: Not an option for most due to the economics of it, but for those who can....
