last post on current affairs
and it might be a bit cloudy because I’m not used to waking up to a day as bright and happy as this
I never like the Clintons. I tried and tried to like Obama. So many of my old friends think he’s just the cat’s meow, which means I got kind of shunned for the last eight years. Hey that’s okay. Anyway, what I might hate more than Obama and the Clintons – what a dark eight years it’s been – actually it kind of started in ’92 when the Clintons were first elected co-presidents, so yeah, man, it’s been like a really dark quarter century – but I guess what always put a nasty taste in my craw, kind of a by-product of this collectively long and dark regime, are all these ‘creative’ celebrities and the whole capital C Creative crap – cultural creatives – this odd conflation with being ‘liberal’ and ‘creative’, like if you’re one you have to be the other. And when they become celebrities and feel they’ve got this mandate to lecture everyone…. as a middle-of-the-roader kind of guy who mostly seeks a nice time without hurting anyone, well, I really, really, do not appreciate celebrity lectures. It isn’t so much that I’m all gushy and such about Trump, but to see these questionably-talented celebrities (I never liked Madonna. At all. Joy Behar? WTF?) so stunned and gnashing their holier-than-thou-sanctimonious teeth…. that alone is very sweet. Fuck you.
