|Good, Go Ahead, America, Choke on Your Own Vomit, You Deserve to Die

last Wednesday i found myself in a condition of impolite and very real nausea, clad black in a red state, seethingly wandering streets i hadn't been on in years. it was all i could do to resist approaching random yokels with "W Stands for Women" bumper stickers on their Explorers and screaming "what the fuck is wrong with you?!"|
admittedly, i just didn't see it coming. maybe it was my characteristically foolish optimism, or surrounding myself with like minds and staying informed mostly by way of insular, left-friendly media and blogs. until it actually happened, i just couldn't conceive of so many people being so blitheringly stupid. but evidently 51.1% of this country just doesn't get it, and it only takes someone who can turn fear-mongering and intolerance into a county-by-county science to secure another four years of regress. sigh.
