a brief foray into politics

I saw this on MSN the other day. It has to do with George W. Bush's trip to the Middle East.

Stephen Hadley, Bush's national security adviser, sounded pessimistic about Hamas joining the peace process.

"Nobody, unfortunately, is very optimistic that they will make that choice," Hadley said. "Hamas came to power in election; [they] will have to submit [themselves] at some point to the people of Gaza in terms of their approval of the job they have done. And at this point, it's a pretty depressing situation in Hamas - for all those people who live there."

First of all, Stephen Hadley, like all Bush loyalists, is a torrential douchebag. Now play this game with me: The first time you see 'Hamas' in the italicized paragraph above, substitute the word 'Republicans.' Then when you see the word 'Gaza,' insert 'America' and do the same thing the second time you see 'Hamas.'

It still holds true, doesn't it?

Am I comparing Hamas to the Republicans? Not at all. I'm just pointing out how funny it is that sometimes you can start out describing one thing and wind up describing something else at the same time. I believe they call that subtext.

We're in the home stretch, folks. One more year of incompetence and corruption to go.
