Hatfields and McCoys: Political Environment

I don’t know about the rest of you folks, but all this conversation over political bi-partisanship, civil debate, unimpassioned discourse and constructive discussion is just a bunch of “bull“. I mean since the teams were drawn up during the Bush administration where the Conservatives were on one side and the Liberal loons were on the other, with the rest of us in the middle paying the bills and sucking eggs , we haven’t had a reasonable conversation about anything.

I mean, the train has left the station, the Hatfields are staring down the barrel at the McCoys and Bufford T. Justice just watched the Bandit steal his daughter-in-law to be. So I think that the chances of a constructive dialog between today’s polar political opposites is about as likely as Elvis walking into a Burger King in Butte, Montana and ordering up a Bacon Burger and fries. And here’s why.

Fox News and Conservative Talk Radio is why. For years CNN, MSNBC and the MSM had a field day creating and controlling the narrative. They were feeding us crap sandwiches and we were swallowing them, lock, stock and pimento loaf. Talk Radio has been warning the rest of us of what middle America has known for decades: “We are moving toward Socialism people, Wake up!” However with the entrance of Fox News (the only conservative voice on television) the lines were redrawn. Now American patriots are getting a front row seat on television, a glimpse if you will, of just how they have been manipulated by both ends. So, as the polls show, it isn’t a pretty picture for those on either end now.

Oh, we will continue to be abused by Corporate Pigs and Bureaucratic bagmen for years to come, but now at least their mystical powers of deception will be recognized and rewarded with the failures they deserve. We will at once be the masters of our destiny and the executioners of the purveyors of our fears. The cat’s out of the bag, the fat lady is singing and the curtain has been pulled back on the man at the controls of Oz.

You would think that somebody would be reading the tea leaves, but with moderate Republicans crossing the isle to kiss Harry Reid’s ring, the bloodbath in November is now a sure thing.
