Post Election Blues

..Haven't felt to much like blogging since the election..
..still somewhat perplexed with the outcome..
I admit that I still don't get all the mumbo jumbo that it takes to digest politics..
I don't understand why it turns into a campaign of slurs and innuendo rather than actually carrying on a conversation about differences in opinion or policy..
I really don't get why there is still democrats and republicans and all the partisan grandstanding that goes with..seems like an out of date non-productive separation of causes..when you think of all the disadvantaged public that could use some help and support.. how this bunch of egomaniacs can spend so much on their political campaigns..they are so disconnected at times is hard to understand how they even got close to holding a political office..
I don't understand why we still use an electoral college any more than why we continue using the present convoluted tax system..
I try to get information from a variety of sources..primarily on TV w/Jon Stewart, Dennis Miller, Bill Maher, Tim Russert..I don't always agree with them but they make you think about controversial issues and inject a little humor along the way..I get a lot of info off the net w/Yahoo & Google news..sometimes USA Today, MSNBC and Reuters as well..I enjoy reading press from other countries like The Australian,The Guardian, Pak Tribune and Asia times to name a few..it's good to reflect on how others around the globe perceive U.S. culture and politics as well as the evolution of their own society..on occasion have scanned Andrew Sullivan's daily dish and w/him in mind;
last week on Bill Maher a couple of the guests had their shorts in a bunch; specifically Alan Simpson & Andrew Sullivan. Maher tried to ask questions about the outcome of the election and influence of "the Christian Right" but was slammed by both Simpson and Sullivan..neither made sense, they were both off on a tangent and very defensive asserting that Maher always makes fun of the Christians..Yeah well, what would Jesus do? Maher makes fun of almost everyone; I believe that's the point of the show.. It is supposed to be "politically incorrect".
The news commentaries suggest the election was influenced because of those concerned about moral values..which suggests a religious component and apparently more concerned about gay marriage than the performance of the president and his gallery of rogues.. did any of the Bushies read the news reports prior to casting a vote for more lies, deception, misinformation, conflicts of financial interest that only serve to fill the coffers of family and friends, out of control spending and gone from a surplus budget to the record $427 billion deficit?
Born again, War Mongering, Cabbage Mouth Lying Dictator elected by a bunch of DELUDED PINHEADS!!!
Did that cover everything or perhaps was it over the top?
Oh yeah by the way, THANK YOU ever so much for 4 more years of this crap!!!

OK... so you don't get it.... I'll try to help you out without being confrontational....

What was the alternative? What exactly did John Kerry present as an alternative way of doing things? I tried over and over during the election to get someone, ANYONE, to tell me how he'd make a good president and the only answer I ever got was "He's not Bush".

As long as the Libs in this country run against everything instead of figuring out what they stand FOR... The results will turn out the same.

But I'll enjoy that.
