John Edwards, You Offend Me

That little speech he gave at the end of the debate, the one where he likened America to a little light that is flickering and is about to go out. The guy spoke as if we're some third world country, our citizens desperate and hungry...and he's offering us...hope.


We don't need no stinkin' hope, little man...we're Americans. We're collossally rich by the standards of the rest of the world...obesity is one of our primary health problems, fergodsakes...we have two car commercials in nearly every commercial break...we party with Pepsi, Coke, Pizza Hut, and Dominoes because we actually have the luxury to be that lazy. We have color televisions, microwave ovens, broadband Internet, and high performance video cards to run state of the art video games which we purchase in multi-milliondollar volumes the first week that the damned things come out. We have X-Boxes, Game Cubes, and $100 sneakers on our kids' feet.

"Hope"?! Give us a break! We're AMERICANS - we MAKE things happen, we don't elect smegging politicians to make things happen for us. How dare you insult us that way, jerk?

John Edwards is sort of the "anti-Ronald Reagan". Ronald Reagan went out of his way to speak of America's virtues, made us remember of just how proud we should be to be Americans - because of who we are. John Edwards makes us out to be a bunch of limps desperate for some politician out there to reach down and give us a helping hand...because we can't do it on our own.

Someone needs to thoroughly let this guy have it live on national television. He ought to be ashamed of himself.

John Edwards...if I ever find myself near you, I'm going to wipe my feet as I leave your presence. You offend me.

oh my gosh!!!! Have you ever considered a career in political analysis? Of course only Fox would let you speak!

We TOTALLY agree with your thoughts! Very much like Ann Coulter! We need more of your insights!

Thanks for the compliments! (Though I'm not entirely sure that the Ann Coulter one qualifies.) ;)

You can be offended?
