Political Round Up: November 2007

The following recent developments in the political world deserve our attention.

Bush Warns Pakistani Ruler to Reinstate the Country’s Constitution

The leader of Pakistan, Perez Musharref, recently suspended his country’s constitution in order to combat domestic upheaval and terrorist attacks. This prompted the international community to denounce Musharref’s suspension. Among those strongly condemning the constitutional crisis in Pakistan has been none other than our very own President, George W. Bush.

We should point out that Bush has also disregarded the US Constitution in the name of battling the threat of terrorists.

I really appreciate the concept of irony. When I heard this item, I wanted to burst out laughing at the hypocrisy of the Bush Administration. This is the type of material on which Will Rogers thrived. I wanted to laugh, but I didn’t because it just isn’t that funny.

Pat Robertson Endorses Rudy Giuliani for the Republican Presidential Nomination

Televangelist Pat Robertson, a longtime opponent of abortion, has endorsed Rudy Giuliani, the former New York City mayor who is pro-choice. This development has many political observers scratching their heads. There are two possible explanations for Robertson’s endorsement.

The first possibility is that Robertson sees his influence on the national debate about evangelical issues slowly slipping away. He could be grabbing onto Giuliani’s coat tails for the last hurrah and he believes that Giuliani will be the Republican nominee when the dust settles.

The second possibility is that Robertson is becoming a senile old fool. I vote for the latter.

Evangelical Christians Going Green!

Apparently there is a growing number of evangelical Christians who are becoming more concerned about the world environment in general and global warming in particular. They now believe that they should be the environmental stewards for the planet. Well, folks, welcome to the 21st century!

Of course it’s easier for the Christians in this country to voice their concern about the environment now that Jerry Falwell has gone to his reward. I recall one Falwell interview in which he justified the evangelical’s movement apathy toward global warming by saying that God has promised us a better world. This is all well and good, but I always wondered why should the Heavenly Father give us a new world when He sees how we’ve trashed this one. I hope the Christian movement is sincere about their global concern, because they have proven themselves a force with which to be reckoned.

Get Thee Back to DC

There has been a small group of people gallivanting around the country trying to convince voters that they should be the next President of the United States. The problem is the election is nearly a year away and these people act like the voters need to make this decision tomorrow. The candidates started their various tours to raise funds for their campaigns, but now they’re actually debating each other and picking up endorsements like it actually means something right now. With this in mind, I make the following plea.

Dear Candidates: No one is paying attention to you at the moment. You started this process too damn early and you run the risk of burning out. Remember Howard Dean? He was building a good grass roots organization for his campaign this time four years ago. One embarrassing overplayed sound bite later, and his campaign was history!

A few of you need to get back to DC and keep the President from overstepping his power, again. I hope you realize that he and Darth Cheney are building a case to invade Iran. You need to STOP THEM, before they make the mideast even more unstable than it is now. Remember, you will be hired for the Presidency not only based on your promises, but also your past accomplishments. Oh yeah, apparently looks and personality matter too. In any case, stopping another unnecessary war will look good on your resume.

Sigh! January 20, 2009 seems so far away.
