Words will not be minced. The vote is in. The shame is apparent for those who voted (those who actually lifted their asses off the couch and voted) and voted blue. While the GOP laughs its own ass off at the expense of an America I used to know, we need to accept that people of both parties blew it off. Some of us displayed their colors – loud and true but anyone who whines needs to shut up. The Democrats royally, bluely screwed up. But I suspect they tried hard to win. Just not hard enough.
The voting majority population of America has revealed themselves to be basically bigots over the last two terms of the Obama presidency. These folks who cling to GOP antiquated platforms and policy; who cannot seem to get their mouths around the word oligarchy (but apparently embrace it with gusto), are complicit in the worst bigotry I have witnessed in my voting life. Forget policy, decisions, progress, lack of it, programs, innovations, missteps from the Oval Office. Forget all that. We have had many worse jerks sitting there and we all know who they have been. So jerkishness is not the issue. Lack of education and integrity isn’t the issue, golf isn’t the issue, sex, drugs and rock and roll isn’t the issue. Barack Obama’s only shortcoming – right in the door, was being Black. If anyone wants to pretend it isn’t true, then go for it but it is the unvarnished truth and it has been the real issue driving the GOP since the 2008 Election. (that, and the pre-oath Nobel Prize, didn’t help either). The votes came in and they were counted and Mr. Obama won the election. Which was such a stunning blow to our aryan nation and other small-minded, pistol packing populace, they spent their holidays trying to figure out how to undo this hideous wrong. And it wasn’t just Obama, but his Black wife, two Black children and his Black mother-in-law. And oh the places they went. That toke, that mosque, that trip to Nairobi, the Hawaiian press, the Halls of Records and eventually the courts. All that effort wasted on lies and conspiracy theory because no one could say, dared say, would say: “Well, the main issue is that he’s Black”. So add in hypocrisy to the mix. Because, to my mind, that has always been the one and only issue. He wakes up in the White House Black, he gives speeches, Black, he is Commander-in-Chief, Black. (what about that stank salute?) How could this have happened and how can it be stopped? If the election of Barack Obama told Black Americans one thing, it said, loud and clear – “you do not belong in the White House”. What should have been inspirational, uplifting and encouraging to this built on slavery nation, should have been the achievement of this election. Wrong. What it said in fact was: “watch us make him dance Jim Crow.” We will screw him in the Congress, will mock him on the golf course, ruin his vacations, whisper about his daughters’ private parts; we will undermine his decisions, we will schlep repeatedly to the Supreme Court and we will have interstellar media to broadcast loud and clear. Entrance and exit polls, Silver and Gold to show the United States what a huge mistake they made. And aren’t they glad that now have a Congress that will do all they can to right this grave wrong. And watch as we acquire huge amounts of money from corporations who can only benefit from a juicy free market economy government. Occupy? They occupy. They occupy Wall Street, some of the Supreme Court and the economy. They are the minions; Kochs, the Adelsons (bad for the Jews especially), the Walmarts, the Ailes, the Murdochs, Big Tobacco, Big Pharma and so many others that lurk in plain view.
Who remembers JFK? Well, I do and I remember how the nation cringed at the idea that a Roman Catholic was going to run for the Presidency. Oh damn. Here comes the Pope, the ornate censers, the holy water fonts and we cannot allow that. Those things never happened, but by God, it was still stopped short. JFK may have died from lack of electronic media. The poor man was a physical wreck, he was heavily medicated and a skirt chaser. But it wasn’t “known or shown” due to the lack of technology. I remember seeing the picture of Lee Harvey Oswald shot by Jack Ruby on the front page, for heaven’s sake! Who ever thought of that happening. In public. Those days are gone.
So now for the last two years of this beleaguered man’s administration, the gloating GOP; drunk, sober, felonious, old, male, mostly white and misogynistic will roll like dogs in shit and howl at the moon as they are allowed by popular vote, to carry on their malfeasance. How much better can it get until 2016.*
I simply hope that when Mr. Obama leaves the White House – in these lame duck sessions of Congress, he will go out quacking loud and strong.
