I have been following the US and French presidential elections campaigns with great interest. Albeit with opposing tinges of abject fear and pain induced laughter. What a bunch of complete numbskulls they are.
Whoops. I made a mistake there. I should have said, what a bunch of disgustingly rich numbskulls they are. All boasting millions upon millions of dollars and Euros to spend willy nilly on ‘I can bitch better than you’ TV advertising that even Apple would struggle to afford. When I hear any of these excuses for sub-humans speak, I get the immediate feeling that my door is being kicked in by an old fashioned encyclopedia salesman. Collectively they have the credibility of poorly trained used car salesmen.
Watching one of the idiot candidates in the US as he couldn’t remember the three government agencies that he had promised to abolish upon election was the absolute pinnacle of the intelligence required to become the most powerful leader in the world. Or the other that had a ‘total blank’ about a little issue such as Libya and, well, who was the guy, that Colonel guy?
As I write this post I am watching the endorsed candidate for the left in the French presidential election being interviewed on television. Perhaps a nice guy, but the fact that his ex-live in girlfriend and mother of his children was the candidate five years ago, and lost, it sort of smells like a game the whole disgustingly rich family can play.
On the far right in France, dear daddy Le Pen decided to democratically elect his daughter as the successor to head his party. Yeah. Democracy hard at work here. So it’s clear in France. If you’re not related, your don’t get to play in the democracy game. Just a thought. Why did the French invent the guillotine?
Anyway, back across the Atlantic the primaries continue to drag on for an eternity as the modern world’s premier model of a supremely democratic and free nation select the richest bastard who can tell the best lies as their presidential candidate to oppose the previously elected richest bastard who could tell the best lies.
For sure it’s all a great laugh. But somehow my laughter tears dry up suddenly with the impending fear that one of these idiots are guaranteed to be in charge sending their countries deeper into debt, throwing people out of work and of invading countries and killing innocent people very soon. Well, I suppose, what ever changes when it comes to these creatures we call politicians?
