Then, he was president (can't actually say he was 'elected'), and I figured (hoped) he'd be pretty well ineffectual and things would go on as always. A gal can hope.
Didn't quite happen that way, did it?
When I thought about him getting another term in office I literally got panic attacks. And this from someone who hasn't really been paying attention to the TV.
I can NOT figure out why ANYONE would vote for him again, so I could calm myself.
And yet, here he is with a second term. And I find myself, contrary to ALL previous experience, paying attention to conspiracy theories about it. Either there's a conspiracy or I have NO understanding of the thought processes of 50% of voters in this nation.
I am dumbfounded by the torture bill. At this point, my only hope is that the Supreme Court will get rid of it for the right-destroying piece of shit it is. Lord knows, the people that voted FOR it aren't going to be trying to get rid of it.
What can a person do, when our 'representatives' aren't and the only voting choices are 'Bad' and 'Worse'? Run myself? Bwahahahahaha! I haven't the personality for it and there are pictures on the 'net to make that rather pointless. I am entirely too fond of prancing around conventions in corsets and short skirts.
