I'm saddened by how not surprised I am by this article.

As of this post we have:

558 days
4 hours
45 minutes
55 seconds
until the end of the Bush administration. The world really can't wait that long.



Something about that timer isn't right


Oh well, it still gets the point across

I don't know what I'm more excited for, the next president or Indy IV.

It's pretty close, I'd say.

And really it isn't surprising given what the NASA and NOAA former bigwigs testified to.
Hey, it's only a theory!

I'm making a countdown to put on my desktop.

Fucking ridiculous.

Because it's a hallmark of "true believer syndrome," and a quality noted in some of the most hardcore of partisan supporters--conservative and liberal alike.

In short, no amount of evidence contrary to their belief systems will ever be enough to shake their faith.

I have to admit that there was probably a time many years ago when I felt that way about the Democratic Party; that it could do no wrong. And every time I heard something bad said about it, I automatically had a retort back dismissing it.

Nowadays, I consider neither party worthy of "belief."

I find the article probable, if only because of how politically calculated and consistently detailed it is. They are the actions and activities not all that different from a corporate PR department.

Personally, I find it shocking (and quite saddening) that so many otherwise intelligent and reasonable people don't reach that same conclusion.

I find a lot of left-leaning people feel this way. I don't find many conservatives who feel this way although that may be more because I don't know many conservatives anymore.

Observing the Democrats and Republicans from the outside, it becomes quickly apparent that they are both useless. One may be more corrupt and disgusting than the other, but still. Very disheartening indeed.
