Brainwashing children isn’t difficult. If you tell them a fat man comes down the chimney and leaves toys every year on Jesus’ birthday, they’ll believe it. Tell them their lord and savior is Republican and they’ll believe that too. Naive kids and Republicans seem to share that ability to faith their way thru facts.
I’ve been a life long Democrat but I’m not so naive as to believe that if the next President is a Democrat things will change enough to make a real difference. Hillary is genuine. But she’ll be fighting the same D.C. beltway trench warfare as Obama if he wins. The economy is tanking. Special interests still owns Congress. Even if the next President desires change, there won’t be much to work with.
Meet the new boss, she’s the same as the old boss. Hillary Clinton will be the next President.
It looks like the nomination is split. That means the next President will be chosen by 796 super delegates. 796 hard core Democratic insiders that have known the Clinton’s longer. They know what to expect if she is elected. Mostly, they’ll be secure in their position inside the Democratic party if she is elected.
The down side:
Obama has done an incredible job of bringing in support from young and inexperienced voters. Great. The Democratic party needs them. You know he’s struck a chord with today’s youth when they start thumping the Kennedy drum like the Republicans beating the Reagan’s tired carcass.
But what about all those young Obama supporters? What happens when they produce more votes for Obama and Clinton gets the nomination? Think they’ll feel betrayed? They should. I know I do. I thought Democrats were against this sort of thing. At least that’s what they said when Bush stole the election.
Mark my words; this time next year we’ll be hip deep in Goths, Emos and returning servicemen from the stupidest war in history. Cynicism alerts will be broadcast every hour between ads for Girls Gone Wild and American Idol. Black eyeliner and hair dye will be flying off the shelves. Tattoo parlors will have lines around the block. I’ll be putting all my money into black trench coat sales.
When will these kids learn? Their vote doesn’t count. They should all be at the mall buying crap you don’t need. Like a Goth Barbie.
