Whenever Capitol Hill Blue publishes an article questioning the actions, policies or beliefs of an elected official or candidate for office, too many of the masses out there assume putting such an article on this web site means we support he other side.
Question any of the GOP running against Mitt Romney? Well, hell, we’re in Romney‘s back pocket.
Portray Romney as an empty suit? We must be left-leaning libs.
Such is the level of shallowness and ignorance that runs rampant on the Internet like a plague of locusts.
It wouldn’t take much research into the history of this site to realize that we don’t support anyone, fall under the spell of any politicians or subscribe to any party, philosophy or position.
But research is beyond the capability of most drive-by posters and emailers who find one of our stories on Google News and assume — wrongly of course — that an article that points out the failures on their favorite son means we’re shills for the other side.
As Forest Gump would say, “stupid is as stupid does” and stupidity is the one constant on the Misinformation Superhighway and in the halls of power in Washington.
So who do we support for President? Not a damn one of the current crop of failures that have run or who are still running for the job.
Who do we like in Congress? No one. Nada. It may be possible to find a bigger group of losers than the 535 men and women who currently hold the title of Representative or Senator but not one comes to mind. As monumental failures, Congress, the current occupant of the White House and the wannabes who want to replace him are unchallenged.
So what do we, as a nation and as voters, do when faced with no real choice in the voting booth come November?
Damned if we know.
I’ve been involved with politics for more than 45 years, either as a reporter covering the circus or as an operative working inside and I have never — I say again “never” — encountered a bigger group of losers, lunatics and loons than most of those who are either running the country or seeking the job.
Most are not is, in our opinion, qualified to work as a wash room janitor, much less serve in elected or appointed office in the United States of America.
