If Jack Ran for President . . .

This would be my campaign poster.  Props to obamicon.me.

Jingoism is always bad, Jack, even if you really have the best things at heart.

You found this to be jinoistic?!

I thought I was just being crass and condescending.

Jingoistic?

I agree with Jack. It is crass.

You'd never make it in politics, Jack. You're too sincere and you say what's on your mind.

I'm sorry Jersey, but you're going to have to explain to me how making a mockery of Obama's campaign poster is somehow Jingoistic.

Mind you, it's also a mockery of politics in general.

Silver,

What's ironic about your statement is that my sincerity and transparency is something that I think the American people desperately want from their politicians, yet those qualities don't make for a "successful" politician.

Ron Paul comes to mind.

I'd prefer a nice hot cup of STFU.

Jack,

Just read the post between this one and our last. That's jingoism. And it's crass and stupid.

The last thing we should be doing is shutting up or telling each other to fuck off right now. We need to talk like grown ups, for fuckin' Christ's sake. ;)

Look man, I'm not picking on you, but the whole military thing, and the ostensible Obama reference, are right wing whack job shit. You should be above that.

Okay, I think we have a misunderstanding.

That is the original picture that I used. That used to be my blogger icon until I changed it to the Obama poster-style version of it.

It has nothing to do with military or anything like that. I like it because the guy in the picture has a big shit eating grin and a cup.

And an adult conversation about politics? Those days are gone, friend. You can't take American politics seriously when half of the country thinks the other half hates America and is trying to destroy the world.

I could go on national telivision and proclaim that Obama is secretly a fascist who is trying to destroy America by disenfranchizing the white European male, and I guarantee that at least 10 million people would believe me.

I could fucking say ANYTHING and at least 1 idiot on this planet would believe me. I mean holy shit, Harry Reid just comes out and accuses Romney of tax fraud, and now Romney has to prove that he didn't defraud the country?

Adult conversations are over, Jersey. Few people are interested in the truth anymore. Most people just want to feel warm and fuzzy inside.

My little lampoon here is about as far from Jingoistic as you can get. Although I chose the Obama poster style, I did it not to make a statement about Obama, but because I thought it would be funny. I'm mocking the whole damn system, not just Obama.

This is not right wing wack job shit. You should be above lumping me into categories.
