Musings On The Failure Of My Candidate

November 5, 2008

O!
I am undone!
My political landscape is upended
And scattered across the oft’ abused regions of my conciousness

How can this be possible?
Did I not vote?
Did I not canvass?
Did I not chant “Drill Daby, Drill” with appropriate fervor?
Or was my fervor perhaps too great?
I do not understand

Surely I knew the path was narrow
But I trusted in Rick Davis
Why should I not?
Why would he mislead me?
And yet clearly was I misled

But I should not blame myself
For that is not my way
Nor the way of my party

No!

I blame the media!
I blame the economy!
I blame congress for sabotaging the economy
And then telling the media it was someone else!
Tricky of them, to be sure

And now I am left to ponder
How we might have won in Iraq if we had stayed just a little longer
How we might have had Joe the Plumber as Secretary of Defense
How we might have had a really great health care system
One that follows the tenets of our really great economy

But I am not without solace
For in my heart I hear the chant
Of a Palin challenge in a scant four years
This gives me strength to continue

Thank you.

    I walked up to the first black person I saw today and gave him a hug and said, “I voted for Obama?” He pushed me away and said, “I’m a Republican.”

    So much for my mad street cred.

    I didn’t see the charlies angels angle either but you DID have me confused for a few seconds. I was hoping my grass roots campaign to write in Dug for prez would really take off but alas I believe I was mistaken. Rob or Rick S. would make good VP’s

    Botched Experiment: Thanks for the laugh! I’m laughing so hard I have tears streaming down my face-hysterical!
