MY GOD! WHAT THE FUCK? Ted Kennedy is turning over in his grave right about now!
Scott Brown, a self proclaimed “Independent” (Yeah, right! And I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell ya!) pulled off the upset and defeated Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley for the remaining term of the late Senator Edward Kennedy.
I gotta hand it to Brown. He played right into the voters fears in this election. All you have to do is scare people and they’ll have your vote. That seems to be the way things goes right about now in politics.
But to his credit, you also gotta hand it to Coakley. She ran her campaign like Hillary Clinton did for president in 2008. She seemed smug and unapproachable on the campaign trail. Even her ads on TV had her looking like she was some kind of “queen” or something.
But after all the campaigning is over, I have to wonder if my fellow Americans are selfish? Self-centered? Ignorant? Impatient? Or just plain stupid!
Americans still don’t seem to realize it was the Republicans who put the country into the state it’s in right now. The years of the big business “Gravy Train” has been devastating to the point where it may be decades before the damage can be corrected.
It’s not going to be a quick fix. But yet, like a battered wife, American voters still go running back to their “abusers”. They continue to make the same bad mistakes as before.
The founding fathers were right to elect a President by way of the electoral college. Right now, I don’t have much faith in my fellow Americans to make the right choices.
I’m Convinced! Americans are…IDIOTS!
