Tragic Nerd Fantasies

That's me in the top picture. See, I have this packable fedora, right? I wear it to keep the sun out of my eyes as I write. But I also like the noise-canceling headphones for listening to music. Hence, the look.

I think I look really, really hot. Oh yeah, bay-bee.

The second picture is Angelina Jolie who, as you know, is the Octo Mom. No, that's not true. She's married to Brad Pitt.

If Angelina ever left Brad you know what she would do? She'd run to my arms.

What. You don't think so?

I ridicule myself this way to make a point. Republicans believe that if we all turn against Obama, we will run to the waiting arms of this guy:

Or this guy:

Or this guy:

Yes, they are that deluded.

The party of Rush Limbaugh, George W. Bush, John "Tanning Bed" Boehner, Mitch McConnell, Michael Steele, Bobby Jindal and Sarah Palin actually believes they are that close to regaining power. No, seriously. They do.

They think the if the Captain of the football team drops out the Prom Queen will belong to the pizza-faced nerd.

They are that out of touch. They are that delusional. It's tragic, in a cruelly funny sort of way. They just don't get that we'd sooner paint ourselves blue and run naked through the streets than ever be seen with them.

I mean, ewwww.

    "The party of Rush Limbaugh, George W. Bush, John "Tanning Bed" Boehner, Mitch McConnell, Michael Steele, Bobby Jindal and Sarah Palin" is emotionally incapable of acknowledging that they've been spurned.

    Don't think of the geek in high school who thinks the prom queen, if only she could be separated from the quarterback, would suddenly start to love the nerd (although that's accurate). Think instead about the prom queen who just got dumped by the quarterback and thinks that he'll come crawling back to her once he's done fooling around with that slutty average girl who is interesting for him to talk to and who actualy gives it up when they go out on dates. She cannot understand, or allow herself to even try to understand, why she was rejected in favor of someone else.

    I like your stance on this because its right on point, sad but true. We all know what and how the republicans are, they feel they have the power and not for the same reasons the dems do. That's just the truth when it pertains to that group of people, who every day are becoming less associated with the reps and more just a type of person.
