Insomniatic Political Ravings

Well, I guess somebody here should cover the Kerry Speech. Because it is a couple days past, and I am lazy, I’m simply going to direct everyone to The Prophet’s ruminations on the subject: here, here, and here.

The only things not given enough coverage elsewhere are the likely outcomes of Kerry’s tax plan, and a throw away line about nuclear disarmament. The nuke thing, well, it was a one-minute toss off to the far-left of the Democratic party: the part that thought we should’ve have bothered with that whole Cold War because the Communists were such nice people. Not surprised, and I think whomever it was that hypothesized Kerry might become an instant Carter (completely ineffectual and generally unliked) is probably right.

The tax thing just doesn’t add up. You cannot raise taxes on people who make over $200,000 a year and lower taxes on small businesses. Why? Well, you see, small businesses are owned by people we like to call “small business owners” most of these folks make barely over $200,000 a year, and are what we like to call “self employed.” See, a lot of money they have to count as income goes toward things like, I dunno, the goddamn businesses they own. Most small business owners are hardly sitting around on fortunes inherited from their wives dead first husbands; most of them are working pretty hard to keep the business afloat, but the kids through college, pay the bills, etc. I guess it’s too much to expect Kerry to understand something that simplistic, I mean, his wife doesn’t even know what chili is.

In other news, Dad is hypothesizing that Bush41 will be at the wedding I am ushering in Houston next Saturday, as he is a close friend of the bride’s father. I will undoubtedly post pictures and tales if this is the case. If this is not the case, as Mom seems to assume, then I will be taking full advantage of the open bar.

    Drink in front of the former president? BRILLIANT, I should’ve thought of that.

  2. Tommy Gunn says:

    I think the chili mistake is more a reflection on how foul and bizarre-looking Wendy’s chili really is. It’s more like thinly-disguised spaghetti sauce than chili. Then again, those damn commercials aren’t pushing spaghetti sauce.

    Better yet, get hammered and try to pick up on Barbara. Fun times!

  4. WWB says:

    Thanks for the notices.

    But in more important news, why can’t you do both? Get hammered in Houston on Heineken or Busch and play paparazzi on Papa Bush?

    P.S. Hello, my name is Bill and I am an alliteration addict. Argh!
