Out with the Evil, in with the Messiah

Look, he's just a guy. A guy that happened to get very lucky.  I don't give a shit that he's black. I give a shit about what he's going to do with my money, my country, and the thousands of men and women that are dying in a needless war.

I didn't vote for him. I couldn't vote for someone with whom I so violently disagreed. I don't think he can do any of the things he promised he would do, what politician does? And what politician from Illinois is going to do what he promised?

I'm tired of seeing all the merch. You know, the magazines, the hats, the t-shirts, the fucking puzzles. That's right puzzles. I'm tired of watching people cash in on his success.  I didn't watch his speech, I may go YouTube it, I haven't decided.

It will be an interesting year.

He will fuck up, and it will probably be bad. Will he still be a shiny golden god then?

Bush was a huge disappointment for Republicans who set him up on a pedestal when they initially elected him and I strongly suspect the same thing is going to happen with Obama and Democrats. I think that there are quite a few people are going to be sorely disappointed when they find out that he's not going to end up bringing us into some new era of unbounded prosperity. At best, he might end up helping things some. At worst, he could screw things up even more, which is what I'm afraid will happen.

Honestly, I couldn't bring myself to vote for either McCain or Obama (I really don't think either of them had good ideas for what to do with the country), so I could well be extra-pessimistic here, but . . . yeah. It's really kind of disturbing seeing people treat him like the second coming of Christ. He's got one hell of a marketing team.

I couldn't agree more.

You know mom and I could not agree more kiddo. I think this is going to be the worst 4 years on record I hope they go by pretty quick.

Yeah. I don't think it will be that bad. I think it will be bad enough for people to realise that he isn't everything they think he is. Just remember, we survived Bush, we can survive Obama. I have hope. Heh. Get it? I said "hope"
