Kerry/Edwards File More Ohio Election Motions
The obvious: nothing will overturn the Bush “win,” but it would be nice for all of those who value uh . . . what’s it called . . . oh yea, the truth . . . to know more about how, exactly, the Bush people stole the election in Ohio, at least. How many years down the road, if at all, will we have to wait for the full story about these stolen elections to be told, and how much later until a majority of Americans are aware of this? About as much time as it took for a majority of Americans to know that American foreign policy has, in reality and in contradiction to a million speeches and official stances, brutally repressed actual democratic movements all over the world?
Barbara Walters: the pinnacle of mainstream ignorance. Last night when interviewing Will Ferrell, the subject of Bush came up and either before Will was about to say something or he did say something derogatory about Bush and they cut it out, she says, “Oh come on now, he just got re-elected.” Like she’s admonishing a dirty child.
Barbara, what the fuck do you know? In response to her question, “What superpower would you have?” here is my answer: “If I could have any superpower . . . if I could have any superpower, Barbara, I would choose the superpower to touch the ground of any country I was in and voila: from that moment on there would always be free and fair elections in that country. I would visit every country in the world with that power, but I would start here, in the United States of America.”
And then somehow, I would use the line, “I’m just a girl from a trailer park with big dreams.” Because that’s a great line. It’s a line that invokes Horatio Alger and makes Clint Eastwood cry. Huzza.
