The oppressed are allowed once every few years to decide which particular representatives of the oppressing class are to represent and repress them. ~Karl Marx
WE realize today’s only ELECTION DAY here in the United States, but hey, since that’s where some of us happen to live (those of us who aren’t in SPAIN and/or ICELAND) we believe it entitles us to a few things, including the right to discuss, for a moment, the State of our Union.
UNFORTUNATELY, we’re not in the mood to discuss the State of our Union. Mostly because, for the past few years, we’ve found the State of our Union somewhat depressing. Besides, the Snark wasn’t created in order to debate politics, it was created, in part, to make fun of politics, along with anything else deemed mock-worthy and/or muse-worthy on any given day. So relax, there’ll be no State of the Union talking-about here, folks. Not from us.
NONETHELESS, an election — even a mid-term election — does give rise to a few questions, even to superficial non-substantial-non-political-talking folks like us. Naturally, our questions arise on a much broader, more bizarre scale, because, in case you haven’t noticed, we really don’t like to push ourselves beyond the obvious and/or the funny. So our rather broad and/or bizarre (not to mention convenient) musing for today is this: Would we be so depressed about the State of this particular Union if we had leaders in Washington like Washington, i.e. George, i.e. the original GW? We don’t know about you, but it’s a contrived thought that boggles our fragile little minds even as we use it as an excuse to show the following clip.
[WARNING: In the spirit of full disclosure, we need to tell you there’s a bit of colorful “language” in this video. In the spirit of Freedom of Speech, we plan to show it to you anyway.]
OKAY. Now that’s a leader we can wrap our votes around. Someone who’ll kick ass, get the economy under control, help forge world peace, and save children? (although, apparently, not the British children) Sigh. They just don’t make ’em like that anymore, do they? No. They do not.
NATURALLY, we’d be remiss if we failed to thank our very good friend, DIESEL, for sending us this little gem of a video. Unless, of course, you all hated it — or found it offensive — in which case, it was all Diesel’s fault and that’s what we get for trying to be so attentive to one of our constituents.
