So I just looked back through the most recent entries in this journal of mine... and you'd think I was a pretty pissed off politician-type person. Which I am not, really. So I'm making a New Year's Resolution. Yeah, that's right, and it's January 20th. Is it a 2005 resolution or too late for that? There are no rules to this shit, so I'll do what I want.
I am stepping off of my soapbox. For at least
the next 3 minutes. There will not be any good news coming from the world of government in the United States, North Carolina, Durham, or any municipality of which my current location makes me a part. I will just cover it all with a one sentence political bitching Mad Lib.
"I can't believe that **Fill in politician** **said/signed/believes** **whatever they did/said/signed/believe**"
Because there are so many valid permutations of this statement that I could basically say "yeah, that's my opinion"
Today for example, GWB said that the "unbridled fire of freedom" is going to light up the corners of the world. Well, freedom wasn't so unbridled before you showed up. And I think he means "Unbridled Fire of Freedom" or "U.F.F." -- and the military is of course fond of their acronyms and "UFF" means "Tomohawk Missle." Watch out, Iran.
I invite you also to make up whatever fun statements you can with my little pattern. Some examples:
- I can't believe that Condoleeza Rice is really a man.
- I can't believe that Newt Gingrich is going to be on Fear Factor.
- I can't believe that John Ashcroft was wearing a bra under his clothes the whole time.
The future of this journal is only for the more mundane. My system can't take the politics. At least for the next 3 minutes till I go to cnn.com and have another mini-aneurism.
