One Way Love (the blog) aka OWL

Posted in Blogroll, political rant, Uncategorized by ruthanzo on September 6, 2008

OWL lyrics The powerless people at the bottom of the heap in America think that ‘they’ will be empowered if ‘they’ elect someone like Sarah Palin who to all appearances is one of ‘them.’ ‘They’re wrong. She’s not one of ‘them.’ She’s not a stiff. If she were she would never have gotten to Washington (she’s not there yet but she’s on her way unless a suicidal moose decides to take her out on an Alaskan byway) She’s a shrewd, ambitious and brassy back-country woman whose parents are teachers. George Bush likes to pretend he’s one of ‘them’ too. A stiff, that is. Blaming big government. Isn’t he the President? But he’s not one of ‘them.’ He’s a wealthy under-achieving mama’s boy who aspires to the uneducated classes. That’s why ‘they’ love him. ‘They’ love George Bush more than their own children whom he has uncaringly sacrificed in an unjust, poorly planned war. If you can’t love yourself transfer your love to a ‘gleaming’ version of self. George, Sarah. Maybe yielding up one’s child to the Bush war is an act of love after all, an act of kindness when your kid gets his crotch blown apart for Bush & Co. It’s that or working himself to death down the road at three low-paying jobs just to put bad food on the table for his family.

    I doubt Sarah would send one of her beloved children to the wars..maybe her brother-in-law, how bout Johnny Mac. She’s got to lose him. An act of love.

    What we liked about Bammy was that notion espoused by Walt Kelly “the enemy is us’. Too much they for too long.
    ‘They’ when what is meant is “Me Me Me”.
    Started w/ The Gopper’s trickle down theory which papa arbusto described rightly as voodoo economics.

    Keepin Sally in the Alley away from media while they try to teach her not to mispronounce fission. Let Ol’ mick Biden have at her.

    Mr. Obama should reach across the aisle and ask Ms. Palin to dance..for the good of their country. Their respective partners don’t look up to the task. Get job done!
