Yesterday, we started with a fifth of Crown XR and pints of Crown Black, Regular, and Special Reserve. The XR is long gone, as is the Special Reserve, but a bit of the Black and regular remain; which, by the way, is a really good thing as I've been on the edge of the following emotions all night: despair, rage, fear, loathing, optimism, resignation, happiness, and rage...yes--I repeated rage.
If nothing else, the Georgia GOP convention was a keen reminder that you should never underestimate the ignorance and fear of some of these people. These are the same people who just a few months ago railed against Mitt but who now need knee pads to fully service their admiration of this absolute sell-out of a shill.
These same people tend to be older, but they also have a crop of young chumps who do their bidding. I saw several wearing bow ties. Many tended to look weak and effeminate, just like most of their masters. They were, in a couple of words, clown shoes.
What these people, who deep down inside truly know, but consciously won't realize, is that they are the same people that helped perpetuate this mess. These are the people that saw this coming, but did nothing. The people that suffered through Nixon, but did not learn their lesson, and the same people who felt like Bush 43 did a good job. They are hopeless. But...they are thinning out. Everyday, there will be less of them.
Having said all of this, I actually want to thank them. Like I said earlier, it's another good reminder of what we're dealing with.
In a future post, I will actually describe the despicableness that occurred in Columbus, GA on May 19th, 2012. Until then, I'll just say this--actions have consequences. They had the numbers, we didn't. But they didn't have to rub our goddam noses in it. They could have at least thrown us approx. 7% of the delegates (what RP did in the primary). And finally I'll say this--there's no way in hell they had 2/3 plus one. But as I say--actions have consequences.
I'll hope to have that next post up in the next day or two.
Until next time...
