|07:42 pm - Urge to kill... rising...|
While I'm pissed off, I might as well mention that I hate the following things:
- The parking at Ward Brodt.
- The fact that all the bookstores in town must be spying on my Amazon.com searches to make sure that nothing I want is ever in stock.
- The guy at the polls who always stands next to his friend saying "I can't believe you're voting for Dean! I can't believe you support the casino!"
- The volunteers at the polls who don't shut him up.
- The fact that P.T. Barnum and matchstyx were right:
Me: So are you voting today? Or have you already?
Idiot roommate: Hay-ell no! Ah figgur ain't no Demmacrat gon' be better'n Bush, an' Ah figgur eff they turn Day-Joe-pay inta a casino, it's people's own damn fault eff they got a gamblin' problem, Ah tell yew whut. 'sides, Bush already got Saddam. Yew thank he ain't gon' git Osama?
Me: Ah, have you been paying attention to any of the news about the casino?
Idiot roommate: Naw, Ah bin watchin' Survahver.
Me: No, I mean in the last few months, not just tonight.
Idiot roommate: Ah sayd Ah bin watchin' Survahver. An' Th' Newlyweds.
Current Mood: enraged
Current Music: Frank Zappa -- Jesus Thinks You're A Jerk
No, I just like to make N*te out to be a gun-totin', country music-lovin' "good ol' boy" who votes Republican because he wants to be able to carry a gun.
Oh, wait. He IS a gun-totin', country music-lovin' "good ol' boy" who votes Republican because he wants to be able to carry a gun.
I guess I don't see what his beliefs have to do with our sharing the house. Nate's the only one of the bunch like that, and he's not actually stupid. Nate's problem is that he's as uninformed as the average American when it comes to the issues he's not directly interested in, and the issues that interest him are the only ones he votes on. He's a hunter who wants the government out of his hair in regard to things like firearms, ergo he's been voting Republican lately. If I were really going to berate my friends for their stupid political opinions, I'd be more angry with the liberals who voted for Bush in 2000 because they're still miffed about Tipper Gore's involvement in the PMRC hearings. Or maybe the people who spend all their time complaining about the current state of political affairs, and then cast write-in votes for Cthulhu and J.R. "Bob" Dobbs.
