Four Years Ago

It was four long years ago and this graphic was making the rounds. It's how I felt watching the election coverage. We had been fucked and knew we were going to be fucked even more but still worse to me is the fact that the rest of the world has had to suffer at this bastard's hands, too. Let's hope the next four years really do bring change.

Thanks, Rolling Stone

Four years ago, Roger and I flew to Milwaukee for a week to volunteer on the Kerry/Edwards campaign. Wisconsin was a swing state and while our input was small, it remains a point of absolute pride that that Midwest state voted our way and that maybe, just maybe, we had a small something to do with it. I have been incapable of bloggy writing the last few months. As with most everyone I know who is living and breathing the current campaign, email flurries and real-time conversations are what I'm living just now and at night instead of writing a few words, I'm trolling through the millions of words and videos on my computer for updates. For the moment, the words of others are working just fine for me. I post, try and make sure the attribute to the other is front and center, and am still asked if I wrote that. The answer is most likely NO because I'm too fucking flipped by the prospect of another four years of a destructive Republican president to put anything even marginally clever on this blog.

If you still think John McCain is a true war hero and patriot, and a calm and reasoned voice and a good choice for president, then you're probably not reading anything I ever write (rare as it has been of late). I'm most likely preaching to the choir but with only 21 days remaining before the election, I'll preach to anyone who will listen.

Tim Dickinson of Rolling Stone posted this yesterday. It reaffirms just how dangerous and reckless McCain is and, if you think for one minute that having yet another maverick in the White House is a good thing, then you're nothing short of demented.
