Who Are These People?

(Swing to Jesus my child!)

I am sure there was a point where I wanted to understand what went on in the minds of others, but after reading this article I realized that I don't really care what the hell other people think.

Apparently, some people still like Bush.
That wasn't too shocking because his 3_% support base must live somewhere right?
These people can't all be Karl Rove answering every phone in America.

I figured these people must be the voters who feel that more A-Rabs should be killed in Iraq and that Bush reacted too quickly to that whole Hurricane Katrina thing or that taxes are for poor people and Enron got a bad break.

If you fall into either of those two camps and are straight up with it, then cool beans.
Do your Bush thing.
But please don't try and justify it.


  • "When I watch him, I see a man with his heart in the right place," said Delia Randall, a 22-year-old mother from Provo, the hub of a county that gave Senator John Kerry just 11 percent of the presidential vote in 2004. "I like George Bush because he is God fearing, and that's how a lot of people in this area feel."
So being afraid of God is the key?

  • "He's strong, and he doesn't waver," said Jaren Olsen, 18, a freshman at Brigham Young, the nation's largest religiously affiliated private university, who is from Albany. "I like that he is for the family, that marriage should only be between a man and woman. And the war, we need to finish what we started."

So hating gays is the key?

  • Another student at Brigham Young, Danielle Pulsipher, a junior, offered blanket approval of the president. Asked to name which of his actions as president she liked most, she was hard-pressed to answer.

    "I'm not sure of anything he's done, but I like that he's religious — that's really important," Ms. Pulsipher said.

Fuck it. I really don't get this shit.
Really and truly.
It can't just be the Mormons, as weird as Big Love proved them to be.

At this point in my life, I'm not ever going to get it.

I highly doubt anyone who voted for George Bush reads this site, unless the NSA is monitoring me. (What's popping NSA?)
But if you did vote for George Bush, are semi-literate and you still do not regret voting for Bush (either time,) then you need to grab a surfboard and catch the next high tide coming into New Orleans.

I don't think Mormons are getting enough swimming time as it is.


  1. What I always wonder about people who like Bush is: isn't it hard to have faith in a politician and businessman who can't even speak well in public. I'm sorry I know 5 year olds who can debate a point better than him and have about the same vocabulary: they believe in god to, let's vote for them.

  2. Well see what America has learned in the 2008 election...

  3. my guess: sadly not much. we'll make some headway but not too much. it's the American way.
