So, like many of my friends, I feel a great deal of sadness and deflation that George Bush was elected to four more years. I’ve read a lot of commentary on the subject, and feel no need to reinvent the wheel. However, I will say one thing….
I read a while back that “A vote for Bush is a character flaw”. I agree. While alot of people who voted for Bush are undoubtedly good people in their hearts, all the Bush voters I personally know have one thing in common: they’re all pretty much assholes of one kind or another (and to one degree or another), and they all have a personal taste for power. I guess in that regard it’s not suprising they voted for Bush — he appeals to their inner asshole.
If you happen to be reading this and consider yourself to be one of the people I’m talking about, well, I’m sorry, but it’s the damn truth. Console yourself with the fact that your asshole will wield unprecedented power for the next 4 years.
