can't we do any better than this?
Looking like a bunch of clowns and lacking only big, red shoes, the Democrats yesterday re-instated God and Jerusalem (the all-Israeli version) back into their party platform. It's getting harder and harder for people who follow the party line to do so without making complete fools of themselves.
This was a major failure because the modern-day conventions are nothing more than advertisements and public relations events. Effective advertisers are supposed to at least present an image of strength, even if they don't have any. The last thing they want to do is start fighting amongst themselves with everyone watching.
The article I read at Huffpo said this bonehead move was undertaken at Obama's insistence. Once again he shows that he may not know what democracy is, but dictatorship he does quite well, exactly like his predecessor in the office. And in terms of stupidity, the last little dictator had nothing on this one.
How could we ever have thought this guy could fix a broken economy? It's now obvious that he can't even run an ad campaign! At least he didn't say "I'm the decider!" when it comes to the existence of God, who after all, if she does exist, doesn't give a rip whether or not she's acknowledged in the Democratic platform.
Between the ineptitude and incompetence of the Democrats and the fantasyland of Republicans, living out in the ether of their own little parallel universe, where there's no global warming and "markets" always regulate themselves, we're once again between the fire and the tsunami in this country. Can't we do any better than this?
