I swear that Obama guy is one lucky man. Just when it looked like my au natural Broad Street run come election night, was safe, the economy decided to go South. And so, once again, his O ness is creeping up and away in the polls. So much so that he just might get enough votes to overcome the Bradley effect, and make the field Negro eat crow.
But not so fast, Mr. Morton still has some political tricks up his sleeve. I swear this guy has more tricks than a Brazilian soccer player. First Palin,and now this. I wonder if it will work? I used to think I knew my politics, but with these elections I am not so sure. Who knows how the A-merry-can public will react to this latest little.....ahh, ploy. You got to think that the rethugs think it will work, or they wouldn't try it. I bet they have been doing all kinds of polling on this one (I didn't get a call, did you?), and their pollsters must have told them to go for it. Oh field, you are such a cynic, the man cares about his country, he sees that we are in a financial crisis, and he wants to suspend his campaigning so that both he and Obama can go to Washington and try to work this thing out. What's wrong with a little bi-partisanship for the good of the country, field? Nothing, except it's Mr. reach across the *aisle man himself whose party ran the economy into the ground. And just what the fuck has he been doing in Washington all these years except contribute to the problem? I mean give me a break.
Now this latest little Machiavellian stunt might work, and his O ness might be falling into yet another political trap, but if it does, the A-merry-can electorate is even dumber than I thought. Imagine, Mr. Morton wants to suspend campaigning, so that he and Obama can go to Washington and help to try and work out this latest mess we are in. How nice of him. Except there is one little problem; his party put us into this mess in the first place.
But don't go for it O man, I am giving you some advise against my own best interest: They are just trying to slow your mo. You love basketball so let me give you an analogy: You are playing shooting guard and you hit five shots in a row to put your team up. And then, all of a sudden, you are dribbling down the court, and the referee stops the game. He tells you that it will start again at another time and everything will pick up where you left off. Wouldn't that be messed up?That's what Mr. Morton is doing, he is playing referee on your ass.
But I have to give you credit, it looks like you refuse to play along. According to your peeps, the debate is on. Unlike Mr. Morton,apparently you can multi task. This is fun. On again off again, round and round we go. Mr Morton and his O ness, holding their breaths, while waiting to see how the A-merry-can people will react to this one. Of course I know how I would react (this is some bullshit!), but I am not the typical A-merry-can voter.
His O ness was first to try and play the reach across the isle role, apparently he tried to play nice and call Mr. Morton. But Mr. Morton, trickster that he is, wasn't having it, and he called the press to announce his latest little stunt before the O man knew what hit him.
"I thought this was something that he was mulling over,.... Apparently, this was something that, you know, he was more decisive about in his own mind."
Yes O man, he knew it all along. It's called politics. Now folks, if you will excuse me; I have some crunches to do.
