Why do I do it? Why? Why do I turn up every two years to see pretty much everything I vote for die a horrible 20/80 death? Rhode Island’s state flag is the word “Hope” with a giant boat anchor suspended above it (hint to iconographers: words like “buoyant” are used to describe hopes. It’s an anchor’s job to sink to the bottom of the sea and stay).
Okay, STOP THE PRESSES. I was going to go off on the Rhode Island election results, but then I heard about Rumsfeld stepping down, and I’ve lost the will to press keys. It’s a damn shame I already have a drinking problem, because today would be an excellent day to start one.
I’m as sore as a salted hemorrhoid.
