Maybe The Constitution Is Overrated

We’ve all seen the Wash Post article about how the shutdown is the fault of the Constitution

But people seemed to miss the proposition the writer puts forth.

advance… my personal favorite theory of democracy: “In a democracy the people choose a leader in whom they trust. Then the chosen leader says, ‘Now shut up and obey me.’ ” People and party are then no longer free to interfere in his business. …Later the people can sit in judgment. If the leader has made mistakes — to the gallows with him!”

Hmmmm, a good idea is a good idea.

Maybe we could debate putting the Constitution in abeyance for the next 2 years and extend that idea to the whole federal gov’t.

Then, we have a necktie party and we won’t have to worry about term limits for a while.

It’s easier than getting rid of pols considering gerrymandering and this might cause the next set of pols to remember who they work for.


Yelling at the TV

Dear TBS, I refuse to watch Keith Olbermann.

You assholes won’t let anybody who says anything bad about Dems to work ever again (are you ready for some football? Not singing that song you aren’t), but Olbermann can give spittle flecked rant after spittle flecked rant aimed at 50% of the population egregious enough to be fired from MSNBC and yet, he works for you assholes. Too bad, I keep missing some of the game when they flip to him at the studio.

Dear AMC, you PC assholes.

You censor movies for PC sensibilities, not vulgarity or anything like that.

I was pissed enough when you cut out James Caan pretending to be chinese to get close to the bad guy in El Dorado, but did you really cut Gandalf saying, “I am Gandalf the White”?

Yes you PC assholes did. Jeebus.

Dear Insurance agencies, I hate all your commercials.

I would like to bang the freaky Progressive chick, but she’d have to promise to not say a word.
