Enough Already

Dear Loud-Mouthed Liberals:

Please. We all know that George Bush is an idiot. That his administration is a failure. That his advisers are knuckleheads. That there were no WMDs.

And yet, you feel compelled to remind each and every one of us of these facts. On a daily basis if not more frequently. We see your t-shirts "He's Not My President." "Impeach Bush" and other not-even-vaguely clever sayings that we suspect you wear in the hopes of attracting fellow travelers who might want to sleep with you.

You know, I didn't vote for him either. Never particularly liked him. Was always astounded that this third-generation poster boy for the New England WASPocracy was able to pass himself off as a dumb Bubba. But like the cold weather we've been having these past few weeks, I regard his incompetency as something we have to live through. Not something I need to discuss or be reminded of hourly. I mean it's not like he's gotten more incompetent. Or that Cheney's turned into an even bigger liar. Or that the Neo-Cons are suddenly dancing around singing "Tricked you! Tricked you!" on the White House steps.

So stop already. Find something else to focus on. Stop assuming everyone around you shares your political beliefs. Hard as it is to believe, they may not. (Oh, the "Intolerance of the Truly, Truly Tolerant"). It's never okay to discuss politics and religion with relative strangers or with people you work with. And if your parents had raised you correctly, you'd know that.

There are many, many, many objectionable people in the world who've become successful. Though, granted, few to the level of GW Bush. Still, once we've identified them and agreed on their status, there's not much we can do about it. Repeating the same observations ad nauseum, with no fresh insights is just boring (I'm talking to you, Frank Rich)

So get over it. Please.
