um, pardon my french, but UNFUCKIN’ BELIEVABLE!
I’m sitting here, minding my own business, watching ABC’s Charles Gibson interview (if you can call it that) three newly sworn in House Freshmen, Nancy Boyda (Kansas), Patrick Murphy (PA) and Heath Shuler (North Carolina), and I am appalled. Thoroughly, disgustedly, frighteningly appalled at the lack of intelligence and abundance of arrogance. These three newly and embarrassingly elected democrats have sent what little hope I had after this last election spinning spectacularly down the toilet.
Aside from the fact that these three are utterly unable to form a coherent sentence without an abundance of ums, ers, and eh-eh-ehs, (Gibson had to actually complete a sentence spluttered by Boyda) their complete lack of understanding of what the word, “Representative” means just shook me to the bone.
The most offensive of the three is Nancy Boyda from Kansas. When Gibson balked at her statement that she would, despite the will of the people she represents, vote in favor of an increase in troops in Iraq, this smirking little twit said, “Well, they should have thought of that before they voted for President Bush not once but twice.”
It’s a mess, people. And I don’t think there’s any way to fix it, not as long as we continue to elect sublimely stupid, unethical assholes to power.
