Fuck ‘em. They helped to prop up this gang of morons and criminals, and I don’t care how sorry they feel. They weren’t sorry enough to vote against the GOP in 2004. They weren’t sorry enough to call for Bush’s impeachment. They weren’t sorry enough to call out the media for its continued bullshit stories on made-up conflicts and obfuscations. All their apologizing doesn’t begin to heal the thousands of injured soldiers who were treated like shit by the VA. It doesn’t rebuild New Orleans. It doesn’t jump-start the economy. And it doesn’t begin to make up for the years of being made to feel we were traitors to our country for caring that the Criminal In Chief wanted to start a war based on a pack of lies.
In the meantime, they can get off the cross. A hard winter’s coming and we need the wood.
Because, honestly. I know what a crushing blow losing an election is and I’m sorry they’re upset, ordinary people who supported McCain, especially those who still thought they were supporting McCain 2000 instead of this new version with Ignorant Asshole Attachment, but semi-professional wingnut welfare types moaning about how liberals are gloaty and mean can bite me.
They had eight years of everything they wanted. Eight years of being able to wave their GOP pom-poms and their liberal hunting licenses and stuff around, and mocking anybody slightly to the left of them, which is their true interest anyway. Eight years is a lot longer than many of us get to have what we’ve always wanted. Take a breath. Damn.
