It Should Not Be

I normally don't discuss politics here. I think who on and why someone decides to vote is their personal choice. Needless to say I'm not happy with either candidate, McCain nor Obama. Nor am I happy with our political system that about 8 months ago registered nearly 200+ candidates of varying parties but in the spirit of democracy only decided to spotlight those with money.

No, I'm not a big fan of McCain and his trying so hard, frigid, fashionista Budweiser girl-like wife, nope. Nor am I a fan of Michelle Obama running for president but under the guise of her far less accomplished less experienced husband all because he has testicals and America is not ready for a BLACK WOMAN president. (Yes, you read it right. America is not ready for black women to shine, etc. etc. etc.) Eventhough I think sister-girl is fierce. I think their campaign is contrived and somewhat farsical and the Obamanians are more treacherous than the stans of Beyonce.

But those aren't the issues I wanted to discuss today. I received an email on yesterday that showed pictures of Sarah Palin in various states of undress; holding rifles while wearing Old Glory, booty butt-naked on the cover of an old newspaper, and all tarted up a la penthouse with a head so big and ta tas extra flat and 3 shades of difference in the skin tones. I replied that these pictures looked photoshopped to death! These pictures were later found by another recipient to be fakes. Was this email sent for a good laugh? I don't think so, as the previous senders commented as if they believed the pictures were real.

I opine, it's a shame Americans are more concerned with the character of others but so easily slip their foul, stealing, lying, shameful, and perverse ways under the rug for a chance at being included in the coversation at the grown folks' table. Blessing and cursings coming out of the same mouth. It bothers me that we have to unconstructively tear candidates apart as a rite of passage in order for them to run for any office let alone the presidency like America is this huge fraternity. It bothers me that Americans gossip, snicker, and pass around salacious words without researching them first. I think there is a lot of deception in the atmosphere and that we need to be more aware and stop casting stones. Everybody's hands are dirty! Thus is human nature.

I'm extremely late for work, so I guess I'll have to end my intended short commentary without thoroughly fleshing out that last paragraph. I'll try to expound on it more later. I love America. It truly is the land of the free...and reviling.

Kamika present company not excluded
