Newland note: Repete sent this to me. I thought it encapsulated a not-uncommon perspective, and I asked if I could post it. He assented. See y'all tomorrow at 10:30 at Dunn Bros.
Alcoholic Bi-Polar Political Masturbation
Drunken angry conservatives versus aghast stoned liberals... That is who has the voice on the internet and hence by that same modern medium's assumption, the voice of the people.
I believe there is a lonely right-wing online drinking club (disjointed maybe, but still birds of a feather) who, emboldened by alcohol and anonymity and filled with self-righteous common sense, imagine they speak for most all conservatives.
They allow alcohol to bolster their delusional, self-indulgent, bipolar anger. The world just isn't right anymore. They become addicted to the sweet bitterness of self pity and 'Alcoholic Bi-Polar Political Masturbation' is the result. F[rig] spending, f[rig] health care, f[rig] unions, f[rig] illegals, f[rig] everything, f[rig], f[rig], f[rig]! Alcoholic Bi-Polar Political Masturbation is like a kid discovering his pee pee, it just feels too good to stop.
They believe they sing and dance with conservative logic but being loud and obnoxious does not make them the belle of the ball nor admired by the majority. Being loud and obnoxious does give them the voice of the Tea Party, just add a little Jack, please.
The problem is this drunken right wing is so happy being outraged with their own rhetoric that they have no idea what they are really fighting for, dictionaries and Wikipedia be damned! They're not overly worried though, as luck would have it, the fascist left-wing whackos are off getting snacks anyway. Good thing. Morning comes early when you're drunk by 7.
