He's Back ... And He's Blue .........

i've been away a long time; did you miss me?

i didn't and don't want to come back; what's to come back to? the mouldy cookie crumbs of civilization? a lunar and lunatic political landscape, one without atmosphere? i don't want to tell you where i was or what i was doing because i'd burst into tears and become incapacitated but .... the bicycling was great .... and there weren't any cars .....

so .... what did i miss? well, russia invaded georgia and the united states sent strong "messages" to the russians: "ah won't call you "pootie-poo" any more," for starters, or "the next time i look into yore soul i'll see a murderous sociopath who's butchered millions of people and oh my GOD! i'm looking into a MIRROR" and "don't you dare violate the sovereignity of another country with a pre-emptive illegal immoral unilateral invasion" at which point the world burst out laughing and i would have too only i was so far removed from what passed for "news" that it was all but as a gnat's fart in hurricane katrina whose anniversary we also celebrated i think the new york times ran some nice puff pieces on how great mardi gras was so thank god all things are back to normal down and there and speaking of being back to normal .....

i don't even want to think about our "electorate" or what passes for a national election .... jesus, you couldn't run a junior high campaign like this; the kids wouldn't tolerate it--they're much too sophisticated ..... let's make a couple of things clear here: being a POW doesn't make you a hero; i'm sorry ..... all it means was, you got caught and you got held and at the most you kept some prison guards busy and you ate bad food .... no, that doesn't make you a hero, especially not if you participated in an illegal, immoral occupation and devastation of another country ..... and if being tortured and "breaking" makes you heroic, then we got thousands of heroes in guantanamo, bhagram air force base, and black sites around the world .....

we're making heroes faster and better than general motors is making cars these days .....

let me add that not telling your daughter where babies come from doesn't qualify you to hold the launch codes; what is this? immaculate fucking conception? i'm not sure when ignorance became a virtue, superstition an asset, and incompetence a prerequisite for holding public office .... jesus, these people are turning the white house into a fucking trailer park: it's not the white house any more, it's the white trash house, and they'll have cars up on blocks out on the front lawn, along with some nice big old appliances for their fucking kids to play in .....

how fallen are the mighty, and what a mighty fall it's been .... the kennedy years, jesus .... jacky kennedy, a class act if ever there were one, dressed in givenchy or bill blass, not a suzanne sommers special off-the-rack dress from walmart .... they had pablo casals playing cello in the white house, for chrissake; i can't imagine what the republican's music of choice'd be, but their chanting "drill baby drill" gives you an idea ..... as bad as country music can be, i don't think there are any country artists currently descending to this level of imbecility ....

as for imbeciles, they'll do anything to get a retard into the white house .... no ..... really .... they've done it for years; think about the calibre of people they've brought into the white house: spiro agnew; dan quayle; george bush; lon cheney ......

can you imagine what the response would be if an obama daughter were pregnant? how do you think rush ilmbaugh would--remember his compassionate and sensitive impressions of michael j. fox's parkinson's disease--would portray a democrat who had a child with down's syndrome?

we're way beyond hypocrisy here; i'd expect nothing less from creatures that use a sharp little egg tooth to burst through their birthing egg before they eat their mother, then look for a sunny rock so they can bring up their blood temperature to a comfortable level, one where they get the agility they need to fuck with you and me .... none of this is surprising, neither am i surprised--although i'm seriously repugnificated--at the mindless hunger with which our "media" laps this fierce liquid shit up, or the number of diversions, distractions and confabulations they disseminate .... our public policy is now being "debated" and decided at the magazine racks at our supermarket checkout counter .....

what constantly boggles my mind is the .... ha ha .... opposition party ...... what is the most strident response you've seen? other than them saying "tsk, tsk, tsk" while stroking one forefinger with the other .... oh .... excuse me; was it biden who said "i am rubber/you are glue/bounce of me and/stick on you ....."

jesus ......

the republicans, the party that represents the interests of exxon mobil, of halliburton, that was personified by enron, panders to a small population that has a persecution complex .... i'm sorry, but let's be honest: when people resent and resist your forcing your beliefs down their throats, it doesn't mean you're being persecuted .... it means your an autocratic sociopathic asshole, on odious fucking nattering pest feeding upon the yang of the dark lord, that poses grave threats to everything that america ever pretended to stand for, and that should bar--rather than qualify you--for holding public office, but .....

i've been wrong before ......

i really don't fucking know where to go ......

i wanna go back where there were no people and no cars and no radio and no tv and no newspapers and .... and ..... and ......

it was just fucking great .......

now ..... here i am: give me a hero's welcome!

next: dr. pete wipes .......

Nice to have you back. The Kennedies weren't all that classy. I've seen photos of JFK in a Havana whorehouse in 1957.
