McCain and Bush. 2 smirking chimps who keep trying to imitate the smirking smirk of Ronald Reagan. First they pontificate (or threaten) and then they smirk. Hence, status quo Presidential Republican candidates are all talk, talk, smirk; talk, talk, smirk; and talk, talk, smirk.

Hillary doesn't exactly have a smirk, but someone has convinced her (probably Bill -- she really shouldn't listen to him), that she can smiley face her was through a minefield. Whenever anyone confronts her with ANYTHING substantive requiring a moral/rational response, here comes the smiley face.

Of course, this is predictable as death because Hillary/Bill (or is it Bill/Hillary) are archetypal politicians, which means the American soul is their political spittoon. Of course, it's also the political spittoon for virtually every member of 2006 Congress (dems & pugs), so they've got lots of company.

Two things stand out like mountain peaks in the coming Presidential election.

(1.) As a country, we have NEVER had so many scum "politicians" (in the above sense) in American history. Eight years ago, that word meant something different. We all know it did. Sure, it didn't stand for paragons of rationality and ethics, but it DID frequently mean people who would take political, moral risks to represent their electorate. It's a faded memory now (e.g., think about lying Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reed), but once upon a time to be as politician wasn't a synonym of a governmental crook. Is it really that much of an exaggeration to think of the present American Congress as a euphemism for the Mafia and/or the resurrected Nazi Party? Yes, a little exaggeration, but NOT MUCH and the American people know it.

(2.) The Democratic Party is a clone of the Republican Party (Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dumber). Said differently, we now have a ONE party dem/pug system and its perfect name would be The Status Quo Party. Sad, sad, sad, but true, true, true.

OK, now for a little sunshine in all this Russianesque darkness and misery. Of the three viable candidates still running, one (and only one) of them is NOT a member of the Status Quo Party: Barack Obama.

It's also an age thing. Hillary and McCain (and Bush as the current President) are all basically baby boomers plus . . . but Obama is NOT, and that's partly why Obama is setting the country on fire with new enthusiasms.
