As I live on the border with France, it is impossible to escape the fact that there is a presidential election underway. As an Earthling, it is also impossible to escape the fact that there is a similar election underway in the US to elect the leader of the world as we know it. The only problem I have with this, is why oh why does it take a whole year to elect another couple of bloody idiots?
Let’s face it. Bush, Obama, Chirac and Sarkozy all fall into the same category. Embarrassingly useless and only talented in digging deeper holes into which we have been buried. Whether it be the economy or ‘my favourite war of the day’, France and the US have extended their long hand holding friendship by becoming equally adept at choosing anything other than fools as their heads of state.
As I have an interest in politics, which I must say is waning by the day, I have taken a look a the list of candidates and pretenders who are lining up in both campaigns. Surprise, surprise that I have discovered a list of complete clowns ready to fill the boots of the fools currently in office. The only saving grace is that someone called Sarah decided the competition was too much in the ‘idiot’ stakes, so she withdrew before it became obvious that she was way too silly to be a real fool.
One of Australia’s Prime Ministers, Bob Hawke said that democracy gave people the right to be stupid. What he failed to mention was that democracy in fact gave the people stupid people to vote for.
So as we venture towards primaries, second rounds and really a whole lot of pseudo democratic crap, we can look forward to the fools and idiots parading across our television screens for the next twelve months. All the while, our world is plunging into crisis and economic meltdown. But these are petty things to idiots whose only goal is to replace the incumbent idiot.
After such idiotic disappointment in recent years, I recommend voting for the monkey.
