I'll admit it, I'm sick of politics. One side may claim moral superiority over the other, but the truth is, it's a just a game designed to distract us while the looters strip every last dime from as many people as they can. And I will gleefully admit bitter disappointment with the Obama administration for failing to pass on the change they promised in the last election. But that disappointment is all with myself, for being stupid enough to believe that any candidate is going to do anything that the corpocracy hasn't already pre-approved.
That's why I bring up this story. It seems that while President Obama was in Massachusetts stumping for a Democratic candidate their, he was openly heckled by a crowd member. It brought a smile to my face, because I can remember a time not too long ago when something like that would never have happened. A time when political rallies weren't so open, crowds were vetted better than a Republican vice-presidential candidate, and protesters were delegated to "free speech zones" where they could protest all they wanted....far, far away from anybody they might wish to protest against. So while it is a small change, it still represents some changes from the oppressive Cheney/Bush regime. So it doesn't matter that the people of Massachusetts have decided to elect as their senator some one who thinks anal rape is funny, those Massholes appear to have the collective intelligence as a crate of cantaloupe.
