This was the election years when the people’s anger was supposed to rise up and take back our government.
Instead, the inmates are taking over the asylum and electing who defy logic and turn out to be embarrassments.
If the trend continues, we will come out of campaign 2010 in worse shape than ever.
Look at what the people have given us so far:
—Rand Paul, son of Ron, the candidate of both the Tea Party, the man who got into eye doctor school without a college degree and wants to return America to the dark ages when whites ruled and blacks knew their place;
–Sharron Angle, another Tea Party favorite and who might blow the Republican Party‘s best chance to unseat Senate Majority Leader and casino bagman Harry Reid of Nevada. Angle is so far out there that even the rapid right wing is ducking for cover;
—Alvin Greene, the South Carolina Senate candidate who came out of nowhere as the Democratic choice and represents a non-existent IQ and no knowledge of issues is no disqualification when it comes to winning elections. Still, he is a candidate who can run on his record — a criminal one — proving that some candidates can run for office as crooks while others leave and head straight for jail.
The list goes on and on: Ben Quayle, son of Dan, the GOP congressional candidate who wrote for the raunchy gossip web site, TheDirty.Com, using the pen name “Brock Landers,” the name of a porn star character in the film “Boogie Nights; and too many candidates who lied about serving in Vietnam, claimed military medals they never received or padded their resumes.
If these “candidates of the masses are an example of what happens when the people speak, then the people need to shut up. A political system that gives us Sarah Palin is hopelessly flawed.
What makes all this even more scary is the number of brain-damaged followers that voted for these folks and continue to support them in a cult-like manner.
No wonder this country is in trouble.
