I just can't take it anymore

I just can't call myself a "liberal" anymore. I just can't keep interested in politics.

I'll probably still continue to vote Democratic, mostly because the Republicans have really let the slave quarters go to seed. The Democrats aren't about to end slavery, oh no! that would be much too extremist, but I'm pretty confident they're going to spring for a fresh coat of paint on the old slave cabin--maybe even a nice shrubbery. And hey, if I'm doomed to live as a slave, a nice coat of paint couldn't hurt. Also, I like the Democratic idea of painting flowers and upbeat slogans on the bombs we drop on the brown people. Who doesn't like flowers!?

I don't have Arthur Silber's passion. I don't have Noam Chomsky's scholarship. I don't even have The Rude Pundit's talent for scatology.

I'm going to continue to write about philosophy just because I like writing about philosophy. As far as politics go, I'm giving up until we're ready to start manning the barricades; at that point y'all can count me in.

Go Reds! Smash State!

Post a Comment

Please pick a handle or moniker for your comment. It's much easier to address someone by a name or pseudonym than simply "hey you". I have the option of requiring a "hard" identity, but I don't want to turn that on... yet.

With few exceptions, I will not respond or reply to anonymous comments, and I may delete them. I keep a copy of all comments; if you want the text of your comment to repost with something vaguely resembling an identity, email me.

No spam, pr0n, commercial advertising, insanity, lies, repetition or off-topic comments. Creationists, Global Warming deniers, anti-vaxers, Randians, and Libertarians are automatically presumed to be idiots; Christians and Muslims might get the benefit of the doubt, if I'm in a good mood.

See the Debate Flowchart for some basic rules.

Sourced factual corrections are always published and acknowledged.

I will respond or not respond to comments as the mood takes me. See my latest comment policy for details. I am not a pseudonomous-American: my real name is Larry.

Comments may be moderated from time to time. When I do moderate comments, anonymous comments are far more likely to be rejected.

I've already answered some typical comments.

I have jqMath enabled for the blog. If you have a dollar sign (\$) in your comment, put a \\ in front of it: \\\$, unless you want to include a formula in your comment.
