I Been Provoked!!

By Palumbo | September 17, 2008


I am compelled to write as LK, once again, succeeds as a provocateur.

Palumbo has (I’m referring to myself with the Papal Palumbo) - up to the point of the Palin snag - been Pink Floydianly comfortably numb regarding this election. Watching the TV news, as Palumbo has not read a newspaper since 1999, I snickered, crackled, snorted, until I realized…HEY, THEY ARE SERIOUS WITH THIS WOMAN! Albeit, brilliant in political maneuvering, this gaff made it crystal clear that Sen. McCain has nothing more (or less) on his mind than winning. We are not winning. We are losing. Everything. Any semi-half-thinking human who determines that more of the same is a good idea must - as LK put it - expose President Bush. DO NOT let him escape like Rumsfeld, et al. These guys are criminals, who have most certainly kicked the down the walls of security my country lavished in with their greed and immunity. The logic is simple. I don’t know Obama, I do know Sen. McCain. Consider this as a well traveled highway vs the alternative route. We KNOW the highway is crowded, provides for us to sit in traffic for hours on end, and provokes the occasional road rage. Still, there we sit, simply out of habit. “If I take the highway, I don’t have to THINK.” As a people who take pride in what our “Greatest Generation” accomplished by their willingness to take the alternate route, we have no choice! The Falcon’s tip to Obama’s crew…STAY ON MESSAGE. Speak to the people, not at them. Exchange race, gender, and divisive politicing for practical and CLEAR delivery of your ideology. Close your eyes and pretend, no matter where you are speaking, that you are in small town Kentucky or WVA. These are the PEOPLE. These are the broken backs, the Hamburger Helper dinners, the American Americans who will survive or fail with the flick of a Beltway finger. THAT, Sen. OB, is your focus, not some Yak from Alaska.

Oh yeah, Lk told me to remind you that the album’s available on iTunes.

    I’ve never used nor will I ever use iTunes because I hate mp3’s and absolutely refuse to purchase them. Please release this excellent record on an actual pressed CD from an uncompressed source. I don’t own an mp3 player or an Ipod. I listen to CD’s with headphones. Yes, I’m the one.

    OMG…please don’t tell me that the only reason I should vote for the Big O is because he’s an unknown quantity (the alternative road). This is not “Let’s Make A Deal” where I am trading a lifetime supply of donkey chow for what Jay is bringing down the aisle.

    We elected a peanut farmer on the premise that change was better than status quo and look where that got us: hostages, 20% mortgages and a new pronounciation of nuclear (nukular), and one of the least productive economies since FDR.

    As much as I hate the Bush mess, as much as I loathe McCain and his swindling ways, and as much as I hate the idea of shooting wolves from a plane while munching on moose jerky, Obama is an UNKNOWN quantity with NO experience in government…PERIOD. And his inability to effectively focus on what needs to be done to defeat the crook and the hockey mom leads me further and further away from giving him the benefit of the doubt. He stands there like a moose in the headlights watching his point lead dwindle away at the hands of more experienced crooks.

    MOPES and BUTTHEADS unite and boycott the election. Vote for NONE OF THE ABOVE. Maybe its time to call Ross Perot and Ralph Nader.

    I am at this point considering not voting at all since my MOPE tendancies tell me that it doesn’t matter anyway.

    I second that emotion on the hard CD version of Made In China. MP3 just doesn’t cut it. And where’s the album art, liner notes, annoying Amazon sticker that makes it impossible to open the CD without breaking the jewel case?
