The Great Failure that is the American Voter Today

Imagine, if you will, that you live on a block endangered
by a serial killer. You and your neighbors are all at risk.

And
then you all discover who is the killer.

And then the next
Christmas, you all give him knives, guns, rounds of ammo and the
keys to everyone’s flats.

Then you realize that you just empowered
the deadly threat.

And then in response, all you do is go into
denial.

And there’s the American voter, having empowered those
brought us a global financial crisis and who see no reason to do
anything except actually worsen it. How awful, how impossible it
must be to face the reality of the awful thing they did….

On
behalf of the generation who will inherit this: Thanks, stupid,
thoughtless American voter!
