You know it!!
Here's what's gonna happen. John McCain's gonna win the election (see below for explanation) and then Caribou Barbie - a woman with all the energy and intelligence of the Duracell bunny - will badger and nag the old war criminal into a cough early cough grave. This chick could be president by Easter. I would not be surprised.
The United Statesians will then be in the hands of a competent person they can trust all the way to [insert imaginary 'spiritual' endzone of your choice here].
Why will McCain win? Because the American voting public are all so - fucking - stupid.
I'm sometimes scolded for being so categorical and dismissive. 'Come on, you know they aren't all stupid like that', etc. OK, well, maybe they aren't all completely stupid. But in practical terms, being stupid on the one hand, and being, wanting to be, pig ignorant on the other ... Expliquez-moi le difference, s'il vous plaît!! Or whatever.
If only it wasn't for the fact that any dumbass decision the American voters make in November's going to impact my life and my country and its economy and in fact the entire rest of the world ... in a baad way ... I would be laughing so hard right now. Because an American election is such a total soap opera. It's so brainless and irrelevant and ridiculous. Oh, the 'issues'! :-D
Sam Harris, I'm with you all the way. You da man.
