Skip to comments.President Election 2004: An "Unfathomable" Victory for the Incumbent (more Cluelessness in print)

Either I have gone mad or I live in a country literally overrun by idiots ___ feel like I'm living through Ragnarok.
The Norse Armageddon tale is unique in that all of the participants, powerful gods in their own right, knew long in advance of their deaths yet still fought bleakly towards destiny, powerless to prevent it.
Like that war of yore, the battle lines in the American electorate were drawn long ago. The figurative Winter of Winters has fallen on the literal November 2nd, with Republicans and Democrats alike trudging toward mutually assured destruction.
How else do I explain the ferocity with which yesterday's election was fought, even with the outcome almost supernaturally pre-ordained? As someone who had no personal stake in either candidate but hoped for a Kerry victory, watching the precincts report in on television last night was a trial in and of itself. I cannot fathom how, with record voter turnout, this nation is throwing its weight behind the incumbent.
Millions upon millions of people worked hard for change this year. Even in the face of overwhelming media bias and complicity, I know more people aware of the Administration's malfeasance than I did a year ago. High crimes against humanity have been committed over the past four years. The indignation should have boiled over.
And yet it didn't. For like the unchangeable end prophesied throughout mythology, deep down I felt betrayed by my enthusiasm that Kerry stood a chance against the most corrupt President in history. And like Loki, who in one version of the story lay claim to a world ravaged, I have come unhinged from this reality as my world plummets into chaos.
Either I have gone mad or I live in a country literally overrun by idiots. Where else but the United States can the election map be painted Republican Red despite the record George W. Bush has set in his first term of office? The man lied to start a war. He has plunged this country into an unceasing atmosphere of fear and paranoia, taking some of our most guarded freedoms along with our safety.
He has managed to do more harm in four years than all the other jackasses who held the office did in 200. He is a tyrant more interested in interpreting the Bible as a domestic policy guide than in acting fairly and without prejudice towards his constituents.
And yet the popular vote is his. What an age we live in! It makes me sick to my stomach.
Can this country recover from its election debacle? People are saying we should all unite behind whoever wins. What a pantload! I didn't back Bush at all over the past four years why should I suddenly embrace him and hope the country manages to quell rising internal dissent? For that matter, why should I herald Kerry as a savior? The only benefit Kerry had is that half of his votes came from angry progressive citizens who were going to hold him accountable and make sure he didn't piss all over the Constitution the way Bush seems to be able to.
This nation has never been more divided. Personally, I think the United States is long overdue for a divorce. New England and the West Coast clearly have a different agenda from the South and the Midwest, so split up into three different nations and let the vast ideological differences overwhelm themselves.
The Grand Experiment has played itself out.
In a way, though, the election results all almost hilarious. The country's path is governed, for lack of a better term, by dumbass rednecks and hillbillies. I can't say enough bad things about the ultra-religious, self-righteous, ignorant bigoted assholes that predominantly populate the South, but I will say this: considering they were once part of a Confederation that wanted no part of the Union's business, they sure have come back and completely ruined their shit. The subjugated have become the subjugators.
Our cultural "elite" in the founding colonies have never been so "owned" in their lives and I find it not only funny but a little poetic that the South has come again, and they did it the same way any shifty bastard grabs power crooked politics.
Remember Loki? His desire was to rule the earth. He got his wish too bad his coronation came at the end of time when his province was an utter wasteland. He saw the irony in it and filled the air with a bitter mixture of laughter and tears.
As someone who lives in the proverbial end times, watching as "Blue Collar TV," NASCAR and the end of same-sex marriage overwhelms the mind and common decency, I too throw back my head and laugh the laugh of the damned. There's nothing I can do to stop the coming destruction of my way of life, but as an ideological warrior I still hone my intellect the finest weapon one can have and prepare for the inevitable day. For even though I won't survive, I'll have put up a fight.
And then I'll move to New Zealand and get the hell away from this nonsense.
Hahahahahaha! Go to New Zealand. Goodbye, and good riddance.
Ohhh the horror!
Don't go away mad, just go away!
"We need to collect all these type articles into one big STILL CLUELESS file for posterity."
And hold them to their promises to leave the country (like Alec Baldwin in 2000.)
I'd sure like to know where His Majesty resides so that I might help him thisweekend pack for his journey to some place other than here!!!!:-)
The battlefield of politics is strewn with the bodies of liberals who misunderestimated George W. Bush. Here is one more...
I'll go with the former.
Nope. In Ragnarok Fenris the Wolf would bite him on his derriere even in New Zealand. It was supposed to be an universal Ragnarok.
That's what I love about the Left...they're such graceful losers.
"How else do I explain the ferocity with which yesterday's election was fought, even with the outcome almost supernaturally pre-ordained?"
Perhaps you're just an idiot. Why don't you go check with your mother.
"..it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing."- Macbeth
Are these the people that the Prez needs to reach out to?
The country is divided. It is socialist swine like these that are doing it.
Doubt New Zeland would take him. Cuba would be more appropriate.
Is this a satire? Calling the Conservative South hillbillies and rednecks ruining the country.
With an Opus like that? Hey, go away mad -- but REALLY go away OK?
Ol' Matt's right about one thing, though. The timing is perfect for the Right to destroy the left in this country. It's a "use the tools of power to crush your enemy" kinda thing.
Note to author: Move to NZ - hope you like their tax rates. Don't let the door hit you on the way out.
