How Sad for the Rest of Us

How Sad for the Rest of Us

It’s the first Friday before the first Tuesday in November of 2012; the eve of the weekend preceding another presidential election, one in which hate vies against hope, neither acknowledging that politics in the former British Colonies is giving democracy a bad name or that the real heroes and villains of domestic policies are almost always to be found in the Congress, and that this past year, heroes have been in very short supply.

It’s an election where political sadists are making a masochistic electorate delirious with psychotic energy, and where, as almost always, the electoral majority will get what it deserves.

How sad for the rest of us.
