There, I said it.
It was November of 2007 where I titled a post Fuck Obama and His Stupid Bitch, that by now, has been read a few hundreds of thousands of times. I’ve had innumerable occasions to reiterate. But I’m a sucker for redemption, even careful, party-political measured ones.
I’ve been blogging this shit from time-to-time since 2005; and finally, Mr. President, AKA Choom Master, gets on board at the end of his 2nd term and calls it “mistakes” and “doing something stupid”—which of course is the usual standard political lying excused by people who feel empowered in getting a 1/300 millionth say in their own affairs at a curtained social masturbation chamber, AKA voting booth.
These are like a minute each, all you time-crunched people who spend hours reading blogs.
Now, I have many quibbles, but I’ll just quote my post to Facebook once I saw the second video.
I’ve got to salute the man and I’ll just go ahead and call him Mr. President as a show of respect for once. This is an act of statesmanship. Sure, I could quibble, in that he’s doing this near end of term, where hundreds of thousands have entered incarceration and hundreds of thousands endured it over the last seven years.
And, it’s not “mistakes” and “stupid things.” The stupid law is a mistake. But it’s something, not nothing, and babies ought never be tossed out with bath water.
Well I’ll be dammed. The choom master is going to go down in history as the President that turned the insanity of the Nixonian War on Drugs around.
And so there you have it.
It’s the most important political thing on the radar. Currently, there are millions of people in prison who harmed no one. Millions of families have been destroyed to the delight of Christian Conservative Republicans who also delight in the idea that people who don’t believe in their sky doG will get eternal torture in some fantasy Hell.
So while stupid knows no bounds and hell hath no material furry at all, there are hundreds of thousands unjustly sitting in a hell of Christian Conservative making, and families have been devastated for decades.
