This is what I remember about yesterday's presidential debate:

"It's against the law in the United States to hire people illegally." --John Kerry

Let me just pause for a moment, as we all stand in awe of that statement. "It's against the law to hire people ILLEGALLY."

Wow. I never would have thought that hiring someone illegally would be against the LAW. If Bush wins, he should really give Kerry that Cabinet post as head of the Department of Redundancy Department. It reminded me of JohnKerryIsADoucheBagButImVotingForHimAnyway.com.

On the Bush side, this is what I remember:

"Actually, Mitch McConnell had a minimum-wage plan that I supported that would have increased the minimum wage. But let me talk about ... (something completely different and unrelated since I'm totally unprepared to discuss minimum-wage)." -- George W. Bush

The President then went on to discuss education and "No Child Left Behind" and so forth and pretty much blew off the minimum wage thing altogether. Then Kerry went off on something else, also unrelated.

I tell you, folks, these debates are just RIPE for Mystery Science Theatre 3000 treatment.

Well, they're RIPE, anyway. Like month-old rotting corpse meat ripe.

Here's the transcript for those who've missed it. I should make parts of it a MadLib. Couldn't be much funnier and nonsensical than the real thing.

If I didn't have so many domains already, I'd register "WeAreSoScrewed.com". At the top, I'd put a banner that said, simply, "THE GRUMPY SISTERS ARE CALLING YOU OUT, MOTHERFUCKAAAAAAAAAH!"

Pfeh.

EDIT: President Bush called me AGAIN today to make sure I knew that Nevada was an important state, and that I should vote early. Like in the debate, he wouldn't answer any of my questions, and when I asked, he just continued talking like he hadn't even heard me.

It was ALMOST like he was PRE-RECORDED. Like someone just fucking AUTO-DIALED my number to play a fucking RECORDING at me.

AGAIN.

I hate election season so, SO very much.

You should see me yell at the screen during the debates. Except yesterday I was yelling in the car because I was on the way home from class. Of course, no one batted an eye at this because it's Southern California and everyone yells in their cars.

Those two points you mentioned were definitely screaming points for me. "Answer the fucking question" was the most often yelled comment, I believe. I dunno, it might be a tie between that and "Fuckhead!" I like that one a lot, too.

There was a debate? *L*

I get to angry to watch. I really don't need the neighbors calling about how much yelling I'm doing. Or about the naughty words I'm using.

That was me Friday and Saturday. *head explodes*

I had the TV tuned into The Hunted last night. At least I got some Eye Candy and a chance to look over proper knife handling skills. Somethig USEFUL anyway.

"Senator Kerry, how do you feel about the McDonalds Happy meal?"

"Im glad you're giving me an opportunity to speak on this topic that you have just given me to answer. I completely disagree with this administrations position. Our military is lacking the required Happy Meals in Iraq to get the job done."

To be fair, they both ignored the questions, but come on.

Hmmm, Come to think of it, Kerry does kinda sound like Mojo Jojo.

"Mr. President, how do you feel about the McDonalds Happy Meal?"

"Well, let me tell you, I supported Happy Meals. But what's really important is education. When there's no child left behind, we can all have a stronger future. We will test children, to make sure they can read (goes on for four and a half hours about no child left behind)."

They're both assholes.

Your fictious website matches my Mantra a bit. "We are So Fucked, We are So Fucked, We are So Fucked."

Seriously. We are so fucked. It's really sad that the world is going down into the crapper like this.

We. Are. So. Fucked.

Yeah, we're fucked. But honestly, did we think we'd get away from having to pay the bill for our stupidity forever?

I'm looking to find ways to yell "WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!" all the way down.

As for tv and election season, all I have to say is: thank the Gods both dark and light for TNG on DVD. ;)
