My Second And Last Politically-Themed Entry for 2004

Aaah, politics.

Sometimes people are talking about Bush or Kerry or backstabbing or political commercials or the fact that the Democrats and Republicans are fighting it out through their extremely expensive, dirty commercials and propaganda, and I just happen to be sitting near the group of politically-charged minded people.

I say, “Aaah, politics.”

It seems to communicate something to them. Something that causes me to not have to state my allegiances to whichever party, or explain my thoughts or beliefs. It must, as far as I can figure, communicate to them that yes, I sure do agree with all these thoughts they’re currently spouting and that, oh boy, this whole political animal is one huge chip on the virtual shoulder of America. That usually gets me out of having to put myself in a position where people realize that, honestly, I have no idea what they’re talking about, and if they got me talking, would have no idea what I’m talking about.

I used to be a know-nothing. Now I think I know it all.

Why? I watch CNN and MSNBC and Fox News and saw that movie Fahrenheit 9/11 and listen to talk radio and have seen all the political commercials and even watched the first night of the Democratic National Convention. I have read the cartoons in Newsweek and I have paid strict attention to those really funny satirical politically-themed flash movies on the Internet.

Basically, I’m ready to vote. Not.

Just like people watch TV and think they know what goes on in the World (without actually, physically going to such places), a majority of people collect their information from the news media and think they’re hearing everything and thus, they know who they’re going to vote for. I, personally, have flipped back and forth as new tidbits of information come my way. This person helped the Bin Laden family leave the country. This person opposes the war. This person is an idiot. This person is a waffler. This person, that person, this person, that person.

It’s tough to know what’s the truth and what isn’t. It’s tough to collect enough “real data” to make a really good educated guess when you go to the polls. It’s tough to know if we’re getting duped. I mean, I heard somewhere that Bush and Kerry are cousins, three-times removed. Really, your guess is a good as mine.

BUT. There’s a big BUT here.

What if, without us knowing, there has been a hidden code somewhere out there in all the noise that could help us determine just who should be the next President of the United States. What if, without us knowing it, some higher power has already determined the answer and we just have to, as Kevin Spacey once said, look closer. (Or maybe that was Dreamworks SKG and their marketing team, but whatever.)

What if the answer is right there before our eyes?

Let’s take a look at the letters in our current President’s name: G E O R G E W B U S H. What five simple words or phrases can we form with those letters, never re-using one letter more than once? Well, how about these:

Rogue Rush Gorge We’re Hogs Hugs

Interesting. These words, taken directly from George W’s letters of his name, allude to the fact that the man is a rogue, rushing into scenarios that often are the result of this country being hogs, gorging ourselves on as much of the World’s resources as possible. But, in the end, George is always there to provide the hugs and affection our silly, over-emotional people need.

What about the Democratic challenger? J O H N K E R R Y. What five words can we form from such letters, without re-using any single one?

Key Hen Hey Honky Horny

From these words we can allude that Mr. John Kerry has a lot of key points he wants to get across, but is controlled by the “mother hen“, which just happens to be his financially stable wife. And through being overshadowed, Mr. Kerry constantly finds himself saying hey look at me! But in the end, is John Kerry just a plain old-school white boy (honky) who is motivated more by sex than issue?

The fact that R A L P H N A D E R’s letters include the word help, quite possibly says enough there. Then again, all of this could be just as much propaganda as everything else. It could just be another smoke screen to try and misdirect you and get you to vote the wrong way, or the way people want you to vote. In the end, it’s a confusing mountain of crap.

Aaah, politics.

You gotta love it.
