Bruce Lee! Bubblegum!

Bruce Lee (on right) chewing bubblegum. He came to town to chew bubblegum and kick ass. And from the looks of it, he won't be running out of bubblegum any time soon.

We need an image makeover.

Yesterday, George W. Bush, the most powerful person on the planet, danced around like an idiot for the press, while waiting for the man his corporate masters have selected to succeed him, George W. McCain. (I mean John McCain, sorry) I'm not exagerating. He danced around like an idiot. The. Leader. Of. The. Free. World. Danced. Around. Like. An. Idiot.

Eventually George III (sorry again, John McCain) showed up and the "President" said he would do whatever he could to get McCain elected, whether that meant supporting him or not supporting him. I guess somebody has keyed W into the fact that his endorsement may actually do more harm than good.

My endorsement, on the other hand, will do neither harm nor good for anyone. I'm what they call a Yellow Dog Democrat. Although I hope Barack Obama is our candidate, I will strongly support whoever the Democratic Party candidate is. Whoever they are, when they win, I don't envy them the horrible situations they will be inheriting. Then again, I thought that Bill Clinton would never have been able to turn around the ruined economy that he inherited, but he did. As soon as the Republicans were in power again, though, they immediately pissed away all the economic gains and strength that he had built up. People have told me that the President doesn't really have that much power over the economy in the long run, but I disagree. When the Titanic hit an iceberg, do you know who I blamed? THE CAPTAIN. So we're confronted by an economy ruined by tax cuts only for the rich, and what is W's solution? MORE PERMANENT tax cuts only for the rich. (because it worked so well the first time) I guess that the theory is, if a little medicine will cure you, a lot of medicine will cure you even more. We all know that this is wrong, but the republicans have convinced so much of the population that any dissent is treason, that the suckers will go along with anything they tell them to do.
