On the front page of last Saturday's NYTimes there was an article dealing iwth a drinking contest between John McCain and Hillary Clinton. In Estonia. Two fucking years ago! What the article was about was how these two bonded and now are facing each other for their respective parties nomination.
But what struck me the most was the NY Times referring to Hillary as the front runner for the Democratic nomination. How did that happen? Online I see Russ Feingold leading in most polls, so how could Hillary be considered the front runner? Than I googled Democratic party front runner 2008 and found out that in Iowa, it's not even Hillary or Feingold in the lead-it's John Edwards!
How can Hillary be the front runner? I can't think of a single Democrat I know who supports the war in Iraq, Hell, half of America doesn't, yet Hillary does! And still she is the front runner. How can that be?
And more importantly, why would any body stick with a party that doesn't offer a real alternative to the war party? Might as well vote for the Republicans, at least they don't pretend to be progressive. Why vote for the Democrats in November? Pelosi has already stated they're not going to impeach Bush, what's the point of voting for the opposition if they're not really an opposition?
Our political system is so fucked. i can't hardly wait for the new season of American Idol so I can vote on some thing that really matters!
