I'll let these jerks do the talking for me...
1
Richard Nixon
"Politics would be a helluva good business if it weren't for the goddamned people."
2
George W. Bush
"You can fool some of the people all the time, and those are the ones you want to concentrate on."
3
Ronald Reagan
"Before I refuse to take your questions, I have an opening statement."
4
George H. W. Bush
"I have opinions of my own, strong opinions, but I don't always agree with them."
5
Bill J. Clinton
"I tried marijuana once. I did not inhale."

I could have sworn for Dubbya's it was going to be: "I thought an interesting comment was made when somebody said to me, I heard somebody say, where's Mandela? Well, Mandela is dead, because Saddam Hussein killed all the Mandelas." STUPIDEST THING I EVER HEARD

I think perhaps Carter belongs in there as well. In a way, I hope I'm wrong, but I think in 4 years that Obama will also be in this list.
August 17, 2009
I doubt it, Obama has made some important progressive steps away from the uber-conservative policies of Bush, but even in his shortcomings, he's not yet done anything that intentionally violates citizens' rights (at least not that we know of). As for Carter, he could have gone on the list, but he's kind of a forgettable person. The guys on this list earned their spots by being perpetually annoying, loud-mouthed, egotistical, tyrannical, or just plain stupid. Obama only really fits two of those adjectives... and I'll let you figue out which two. ; )
August 25, 2009
Well, those weren't the adjectives I was hinting at, but they may fit some day... I was thinking annoying and loud-mouthed, though that might be a bit unfair since that's pretty much mandatory for all politicians.

I don't know.  Sometimes I'm a little miffed.  I must admit that I rather liked Clinton.  But I think all Politicians and whatnot are egotistical and annoying to a degree.  They're egotistical because well... we make them that way.  For some reason people in a position of power are often put on a pedestol of sorts.  You only need to look at celebrities or most political figures.  At the same time, however, they'd actually probably be less annoying if we didn't see them on the news everyday.  But I think it's important to consider that society is definitely pretty important in shaping that aspect.  It's easy to be egotistical when there are plenty of people to feed it.  As a result, there's a part inside all of us that really seems to want our politicians to be loud-mouthed.  Think of it this way, we want so badly for our politicians to speak up when needed, but whenever they do we want them to shut up immediately.  I always found that amusing.

But then again, I'm just not the type of person who really distrusts a lot of people... nor do I mind loud mouth or egotistical people.  I guess what I'm saying is that I'm not always big on personality so much as it is what they actually get done.  I guess that's part of why I like Obama.  He actually appears to be busy--doing something in other words. 

I don't know.  I'm a bit fascinated and at the same time disturbed by politics.  I guess I just haven't had my spirit crushed to the point where I view all politicians as Tyranical.  Like, I could totally agree with Nixon and all (who wouldn't?) and there aren't too many who appear to like Dubya anyway... and hey, Clinton was ummm... Clinton, but I rather liked him.

No, not all of them are evil, capitalistic, oppressive tyrans. Just the majority of them. LOL! Oddly enough, I'm not sure why that's funny rather than heartbreaking.
September 26, 2009
I laugh to keep from crying
September 26, 2009
Well, hello there. Haven't heard from you much recently. What's up?
September 26, 2009
Been sick, been writing, been doing music and been spending time with granddaughter
September 26, 2009
Other than the being sick, that doesn't sound too bad. How's Eris in all the celebrity death madness?
September 26, 2009
Eris is Eris. One does not question her. It does no good.

I have a Dubyu figure that literally talks out of both sides of its mouth. It has two buttons--a red one and a blue one, that you can press according to your political preference. Then his head turns either to the right or the left as is appropriate and says something either moderately banal or monumentally stupid.
August 17, 2009
Yes, but does it talk out of its ass?
August 17, 2009
I haven't checked.
August 17, 2009
Then it has at least one dissimilarity with Bush. : )
August 17, 2009
I said I haven't checked. For all I know it might. But I have no intention of finding out.
