Usually, I don’t like getting political, as there are hundreds of thousands of other blogs that deal with that stuff (Expat Yank can be interesting). Except maybe for taking the occasional jab at Bush the Lesser or “JFK” Kerry, undoubtedly two of the worst presidential candidates in my short time on this Earth. (I wonder how Perot would have done had he run in 2004 instead of 1992? He probably would have won a few states.)
Dahlia Lithwick wonders in this article why the Democrats don’t stick it to the shady Attorney General, Alberto Gonzales. The best she can figure is spinelessness and/or political expediency.
So here’s my idea: make sure more and more Americans hear this stuff and get sick of our current state of affairs. Every few months, I’ll post a poll asking America if they want me to rule the country by fiat instead. Eventually (if Alex Chiu’s rings really work–it may take a while), at least 51% of the people will say, “Aye.”
(I already gave myself one vote for “No”.)
