The Fucking Mondays: Election Edition

OH MY GOD IT’S FINALLY TIME. Who really cares anymore? The 24-hour news corporations have fused with the continuous-election-season corporations. No matter who gets elected, the government and the advertisers win. It’s hardly even a moralistic pantomime anymore, as dissenting ideas don’t even have to be rational. So we’re monitoring the situation hyper-vigilantly on behalf of you, our valued readership. From a rooftop patio baking in the Oaxaca sun.

The news today is that it doesn’t matter who’s in charge, the army always wins. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/worldviews/wp/2012/11/05/netanyahu-more-resolved-than-thought-to-strike-iran-but-israel-might-not-be/

This is our official US Presidential Election 2012 discussion thread. Please feel free to comment and discuss the charade as it unfolds on the screens and teletext machines. It will be your last chance to talk about US politics here for the next four years. Any comments in coming months discussing the 2016 US Presidential Election will be deleted. We’ll have another Fucking Monday post for that discussion, but only in the week when it’s actually apropos of real news.

CHOOSE WISELY, AMERICA. OR DON’T.
