By the river
a grain of sand
I am confused. I read the papers, watch the tv news, and surf the web. As near as I can tell the election is supposed to be too close to call. How can this be when at the same time I learn that:
Most veterans are going to vote against Bush.
Most women are going to vote against Bush.
Most educators will vote against Bush.
The labor unions will vote against Bush.
A majority of Hispanics will vote against Bush.
Virtually all black people will vote against Bush.
Most of the elderly will vote against Bush.
Environmentalists will vote against Bush.
Gays and Lesbians will vote against Bush.
Some Republicans, even in Idaho(!)plan to vote against Bush.
Who does this leave to vote for Bush? I suggest probably the following:
The apparently insatiably greedy (the filthy rich and CEO's who have more money than they can comfortably spend but still think they are entitled to more, more, more, while the rest of us will have to make do with less and less).
An undetermined number of voters whose I.Q.'s hover between 75 and 90 (and who are apparently determined to vote "for one of their own").
Those who believe the "Rapture" is imminent (provided, of course, the Israelis, with the help of the Bush Administration, can steal enough Palestinian land).
Perhaps if a majority of U. S. citizens are either greedy, dim-witted, or outright loony,it isn't worth worrying about.
