Chris Dodd, unfortunately still a U.S. senator and still running for the Democratic nomination as if he has a snowball's chance in Hell, was shown on TV telling fellow left-wingers how he "stood up to Bill O'Reilly."
I watched his face-to-face with O'Reilly. In fact, I taped it and watched it three times, just to see if I missed something.
But I didn't miss a thing.
Dodd didn't "stand up" to anyone -- all he did was show that (a) he had no idea what Daily Kos is, even as he defended it as a glorious forum of "real Americans," and (b) that he truly thinks that if he puts his "Chris Dodd angry!" face on to anyone with a conservative bend that he's going to woo all the 20-something liberals who have yet to learn what it takes to survive in the real world (a.k.a., not the Internet!) without their parents' help -- and their money.
Dodd is a two-faced, know-nothing dinosaur. He lives in one part of society and pretends to know how we in the other part are forced to live. The very fact that he's wasting this much time and money is proof that he's out of touch. The only reason he's still a Senator is because no one worthwhile has challenged him, not because he's been chosen as the best.
I wish I wasn't a social misfit, or I would run against him myself. I mean, if you think this country is in shambles, just realize that Dodd's been an integral part in making it that way for years.
Geez, this isn't rocket science. ... If you think things are bad, get rid of everyone who's been helping to make it so. Kick them out and start anew.
Voting is important!
And yes, I stole "Occupation: Foole" from George Carlin, back in the days when he was actually funny. Now he just makes up interesting swear words.
