ON THE WHOLE I'D RATHER HACK MY LEG OFF WITH A RUSTY SAW THEN SIT THROUGH THE AMERICAN 'PRESIDENTIAL RACE' ELECTION COVERAGE.
.....................................Watching election coverage.........Hacking leg off with rusty saw(the much prefferred option)
This morning as i was about my househusbandly duties...Dogs need kicking out ;snoring wifes need gallons of coffee ;daughters need shouting at, etc,etc ..Ahh, a househusbands work is never done. Whilst i slave away,the diminishing inciteful, finger on the pulse cartoonists soul thats beats away inside me ..(just up n' to the left of my bloated liver.)..Has Sky news on, to keep me tuned into the world ..(and the latest on the Spice girls breakup n' Brittany Spears adventures.)... I sat and started to watch some of the American presidential race stuff....Is it me?.....I cannot make any sense of this total insanity! I've tried to cultivate an understanding and an interest in the coverage we're being swamped with ,and failed miserably. I have decided that given the choice between the 'race' coverage and hacking my leg off with a rusty saw, i would happily have a root around the garage ,lay down some newspapers and proceed to hack away. Why? Well i shall endeaver to explain.
(1) It's less painful.
(2) It makes more sense.
(3) It' over in a lot less time.
(4) Sky news ,etc, wont have teams of experts and interactive maps n' diagramsn' graphs, to talk and explain ad nauseum the whole process of sawing your leg off.
I mean this insanity over in the 'mightiest ,free'est , sooper dooperest'est country in the whole wide world. How can they get excited over a 'RACE', that's got about another 3 years to run. Millions of people ,with their families buying hotdogs n' burgers ,filling stadiums to wave American flags at some slimey self serving shyster ,creaming a fortune from his 'backers'?????.Donations that make our slimey self serving shysters 'un noticed/overlooked/unreported donations/brown envelopes/backhanders ,look positively pathetic. Well, now SUPER TUESDAY is over, we've had WOWEE WEDNESDAY....AWWWSOME THURSDAY........TRULY AWWWWWSOME FRIDAY.......LIKE, WOW MAN SATURDAY.......LIKE THATS SOOOOOOO, COOL SUNDAY......WOW ,LIKE WOW ,THATS AAAAAAAAAWWWWWWSOME MONDAY.....Now they've got to name every day for the rest of the 'RACE'....Oh god help us ,pleeeze!
Mind you in all of this turgid horribleness ,there is some hope .If HILARY CLINTON gets in . We'll have BILL CLINTON sneaking around the WHITEHOUSE with even less to do than when he was president. Let the fun begin. Does MONICA LEWINSKY still work there?
