S is for "Sorry, But..."

I apologize in advance if I come off sounding like a 147-year-old man here but whatever, it needs to be said:

Dear obnoxious kids from The Hills,

Will you please just go away? Like, immediately. I can't take seeing/hearing/reading about you, especially since I have no idea who you are. Seriously, why are you famous (or whatever passes for fame these days)?

Just ... die or something. Please.

sincerely,
Dylan

PS: Seriously. Go away.

Jason, I've still got hope. Buckets of it, in fact.

If Obama can weather this storm and pull out decisive victories in either of the upcoming states, he'll be fine. He leads in votes, delegates and states (and no, I'm not counting Michigan and Florida because THEY DON'T COUNT! and they KNEW they wouldn't count when they had the elections! Stop pretending that they count, Hillary! You can't change the rules just because you're losing! DUH!) and is closing the superdelegate gap. (Hillary now leads by what, 21?)

The "momentum" question is just not-too clever politics-as-usual obfuscation by the Clinton camp. She has no real hope to win besides hanging on doggedly and hoping that Obama implodes.

And as much as I think McCain is the wrong choice for America, especially right now, he can't do worse than the buffoon we have had in there for the last seven years. McCain is at least somewhat reasonable, if misguided. And old. Like really old. And sort of crazy.

This Wright thing is just more politics as usual smokescreen: focusing on trivial matters while the real issues go undisputed. In fact:

"For we have a choice in this country. We can accept a politics that breeds division, and conflict, and cynicism. We can tackle race only as spectacle - as we did in the OJ trial - or in the wake of tragedy, as we did in the aftermath of Katrina - or as fodder for the nightly news. We can play Reverend Wright's sermons on every channel, every day and talk about them from now until the election, and make the only question in this campaign whether or not the American people think that I somehow believe or sympathize with his most offensive words. We can pounce on some gaffe by a Hillary supporter as evidence that she's playing the race card, or we can speculate on whether white men will all flock to John McCain in the general election regardless of his policies.

"We can do that.

"But if we do, I can tell you that in the next election, we'll be talking about some other distraction. And then another one. And then another one. And nothing will change."
