Remember Dick Cheney’s Immortal Words?

Then read this:

A couple of paragraphs from this post:

“The facts are painfully apparent. Though hundreds — if not thousands — of people in D.C. are professionally paid to pretend these facts require debate and analysis and parsing and speculation and press releases and pithy Tweets and Sunday Show roundtables and C-SPAN symposia and to-camera cable-TV rants and lengthy thousand-page books, they don’t require any of that. The facts are simple. The facts are obvious. The facts are undeniable to anyone not paid fistfulls of sweaty money  to lie or sensationalize:

1. The Democratic Party [shat] on its base with its policies, […]

2. This demoralized the Democratic base, which responded by not turning out to vote. As CBS News notes, “Hispanics, African Americans, union members and young people were among the many core Democratic groups that turned out in large numbers in the 2008 elections (but) turnout among these groups dropped off substantially, even below their previous midterm levels.”

3. In cause-and-effect style, the result of all this was, as the Washington Postreports, a freshman congressional class that is primarily made up of angry, white, lunatic-conservative assholes.

So yes, all of you who are wasting all of our time pretending this isn’t the basic point-A-to-point-B story of the election — and there are a lot of you out there — please, if not for me, then for everyone else: Go fuck yourself.

  1. Awesome!!!!!! This sums up my feelings about the whole system regardless of whether it’s the Republicans or the Democrats. All both parties care about is maintaining their own power for themeselves. They don’t care about the average person. All the politicans care about is who looks better on Face the Nation or Meet the Press, which are two shows only politicans watch (does anybody else even watch those shows???? I’m surprised those shows are still on tv)
