Fucking psychopath hits 24%

He’s finally done it: Bush’s “approval rating” has hit 24%, an all-time low for him, and equal to the lowest-ever: Nixon’s during Watergate. If there’s one thing this guy knows how to do better than anyone, it’s how to fuck up everything he touches.

In light of this fact, one would think by now that:
1. the will of the people in this country is clear: BushCo is a complete and abject failure, providing no leadership and in fact endangering the future of this country as we fight two losing wars and hear constant saber-rattling to start yet another, and
2. because we live in a representative democracy where the elected are there to do the will of the people, that
3. the elected would figure out that the people they represent want this clown and all his toadies OUT, and thus
4. SOMEONE would start impeachment hearings on this whole administration of thieves, liars, and arrogant pricks.

This little train of thought seems quite clear to me, has seemed quite clear to me since I started this blog over a year ago. So why hasn’t it happened? Why do we have all these do-nothing inquiries and senate panels and truth-finding commissions digging into the various misdeeds and outright lawbreaking of BushCo, yet NOTHING has been done? And from all appearances, nothing WILL be done? How can such obvious criminals get away with murder, theft, and other crimes with impunity? How can we continue to stay on this course of madness?

There’s really only one answer, and it’s one that I’m loathe to face. Achem’s Razor tells us that, all things being equal, the simplest answer is probably the correct one. The simplest answer to all these questions is this: They’re all in it together. There is no difference whatsoever between the beliefs and actions of ANYONE, dem or repub, in Washington. Every elected official in D.C. is quite plainly on board with what BushCo is doing. Oh, they can rant and pretend to “give ’em hell” and make their statements about how something is going to change!, yet nothing has changed.

Domestic spying without warrants? Still got it.
War in Iraq? Still got it.
Questions about what really happened and why on 9/11? Still got ’em.
Corruption and partisanship in Justice? Still got it.
Astronomical bilking of billions of dollars by govt contractors, who received no-bid contracts to kill innocent Iraqis at will, overcharge for all their “services,” and basically rob us and our descendents blind? Still got it.
Politicians who lie, disregard ethics, and do nothing? Still got ’em.
Country going to hell in a fucking handbasket? Still going, and going fast.

What do the people do when their government isn’t theirs anymore? When the rulers basically work in a vacuum where the ruled and our needs make no difference whatsoever?

Here again, there’s only one answer. And I’m loathe to face it too. But you know and I know what it is. It starts with an “R” and ends with “evolution.”

Now where do we begin?

I think we leave the Pubs and Dems to their little Plutocratic dance and start a Progressive party that is actually willing to deal with some of the problems facing our country.

If Gore is serious in his indichtment of the way the political system is today, he could run as a Progressive candidate for President.

Fillip, I agree. The whole political system is just one big stinkin' turd; if only global warming could conveniently submerge the Capitol and the White House instead of say Manhattan and Hawaii....

Gore would be good, if only because he's been out of DC for so long and he's already had the media and everyone go as low as they can to dick him around. It's like, what more can they do to him? He's above their shit.
