I’m sure you’ll all school me out the gate, but all my friends (IRL, Facebook, Twitter) have been watching the Republican nominee debates since they started, tweeting about them, getting riled up, etc. Tonight, they were all a-flutter about the Iowa Caucus.
Ummm … who gives a fuck? Are they kidding? Rick Perry? Herman Cain? Newt Gingrich? Mitt Romney? Ron Paul? Rick Santorum? Jon Hunstman? Michelle Bachmann? Seriously? Dear God.
I wouldn’t have wasted one minute (I didn’t) watching debates with these people. Some of them are flat out crazy. Some of them are just degenerate. Some of them are really unthinkably twisted. I don’t get it. Here’s the thing … I’m not voting for any of them. Ever. Even as I struggle with some of the things Obama has been doing recently, I’d never, ever vote for any of these people. (No, my dear, friend, Sam, I’m NEVER VOTING FOR RON PAUL.) So, I’m not going to sit and make my head want to explode and my ovaries want to burst into flames and my blood run cold every two minutes by watching that shit. I just don’t get why my friends and acquaintances and other people do. WHY? What are you possibly gaining from this? Are you saving up some sort of special ammunition for when one of the jokes is nominated as the Republican candidate?
I just can’t do it. I don’t see the point. Seriously. It just makes me angry even THINKING about watching that shit. So, I can’t figure out why you’d want to do it. Romney seems like he’d stand the biggest chance to make a play against Obama, and you have people who probably won’t even vote for him because he’s a Mormon. Really? You fucking psychopaths. And then there’s the whole thing that he sort of kind of did Massachusetts a solid and got them all healthcare. You know, that douche move. Yeah, I can’t even get into it. Cause then, it’s all about how they can all out-crazy each other by taking away abortion rights (even if you’ve been raped by your dad) and all sorts of other crazy ass shit. I don’t get it. I don’t get who really is that fucking scared of Obama and buys into all this crazy shit that is being thrown around that they really look at these sexually-harassing, adulterous, crazy people and thinks, “Yeah. This is my guy/gal. I want them in charge of the weapons.”
See. I’m all riled up and I’m not even watching this craziness. Why are you?
