So, I have always had this interest in politics. I make it a point t' vote and strongly encourage everyone o' age t' GET INFORMED and do so themselves. Just don’t go rushin' t' cast yer ballot on whoever has th' prettiest name….sheesh…we don’t need another Florida scenario (sorry, someone has t' brin' up these auld, dead jokes and give ‘em some new life). Ahoy! Most o' th' time I tend t' keep silent because political discussions almost always lead t' political arguments, which I dern't care fer.
Havin' two snow days t' catch up on th' Democratic candidates, I’ve made a few observations. First o' all, as we saw from Howard Dean last week, this lubber is just psychotic. There’s no other way t' put it. Aarrr! Well, ye could put it in th' form o' an example and refer t' it as th' “I Have a Scream” speech as I heard it called on CNN yesterday. Observation number two is related t' a candidate who I once thought showed some serious promise fer th' Democrats, former General Wesley Clark. What a complete moron! The title o' OXY-moron may better suit that scurvey dog considerin' that we’ve seen that scurvey dog do a complete 180 on several key issues (war in Iraq) in th' past 12 – 18 months. Myself and th' elusive Double Helix have devised th' theory that th' auld Donkey’s have their hand up Clark’s rear just t' keep th' other candidates from bein' elected, with a chest full of booty. The ornery cuss pointed out that it would be a great political strategy t' keep Bush in th' White House fer another term so that our previous favorite president, Mr. ‘It Depends on How You Define Sex,’ would have a chance t' become th' “first wench” in 2008. How bizarre would that be? Finally, Kerry does appear t' have a genuine chance at this thin'. I’m registered with th' Board o' Elections as ‘unaffiliated’ but ye’ll notice a “Republican” button t' yer immediate right while on this blog. To make me point, I confess that Kerry has a decent platform. Of course he, like most all o' th' candidates, want peace in Iraq and are very Pro Choice when it comes t' abortions, so I could ne'er, e'er cast a vote that direction.
To sum this all up and make th' title o' this entry make a bit o' ‘punny’ sense, allow me t' color code these three candidates fer ye. Blue is me favorite o' th' primaries, but o' course green is probably me favorite o' all. Therefore, Kerry easily takes that color as I do feel he is th' most promisin' o' these three candidates, and dinna spare the whip! Shiver me timbers! I’m awardin' Yellow t' Clark fer rollin' o'er like a Golden Retriever does fer a Milk Bone. And o' course, I can’t resist givin' Dean th' big Red flag after his oh-so loud and blood pumpin' speech followin' th' Iowa Caucuses, just not sure if he is red because he worked up a sweat, or just flat out embarassed himself.
In conclusion, check out this nice political cartoon that sums up th' major players in th' Democratic candidates. “My daddy worked in a mill…..”
