The Real Nothingness…

Not so surprisingly, a major event in my personal life had kept me away from sharing my highly irreverent and irrelevant thoughts on highly critical global issues. However, what surprised me the most was even the ongoing political season seemed to have no impact in generating my blogging instincts and seemed to add very little or absolutely no flavor into my blogging soup. Yes, it was a major distraction and all my energy was focused on getting the newly adopted daughter bond well with us personally and with the environment. It is an ongoing process. However, the honest confession is that I wasn’t prepared for this amount of distraction. All good.

This post is dedicated to the real nothingness of the Republican campaign. While I start typing this I learned that President Obama finally shared his views on same-sex marriage and that he is in favor of it. Yay. 3 years late in coming out to support this. But in my mind, it is never too late as far as this issue goes. With that said, this topic may be a different post all together.

Ha! Now, The real nothingness…

Isn’t it really boring? I mean this GOP campaign? It is almost like a rerun of John Kerry of the 2004 election.

You have nothing to hate in him except his politics. Yet, he will never be in your best friends list. Romney (coincidentally also from Massachusetts) is everything that a party can offer if it wants to offer nothing. He represents nothing. He is full of gas. He says one thing one day and says the exact opposite thing the next day or a few weeks later. He wants you to like him. He actually tries too hard to make you like him and in the process thinks that he is saying things that you like but actually he doesn’t even know what he likes. Because his only goal in life seems to be “to be accepted”. So he chugs along. He keeps making things up to make you like him. He tries switching positions on issues so that someone could like him. He doesn’t want to admit that he has nothing to offer except his wealthy & boorish background and of course a vault full of Cayman island transaction receipts.

Poor fellow !(not in literal sense – that would be a total oxymoron). I hope he finds something to cling onto. Definitely not something like his latest claim that he should take credit for the auto bailout. I mean, c’mon! Who buys that? Ok. May be the party of gas could buy that. But seriously…

Romney taking credit for the auto bailout is like the Pilgrims taking credit for the Indian Reservations of today.

What next? He is going to take credit for President Obama being born in the United States and for the stain on Monica Lewinsky’s satin blue dress.??(sorry that doesn’t make sense..But that’s exactly the point).

So in pursuit offering everything for this campaign by putting all their eggs into one campaign basket called “Obama-Hatred”, the GOP has found the perfect nothingness for this campaign.

And who else can represent real nothingness better than Romney? 


Besides fantasizing about being a Peter Gibbons at least for a couple of days at my work, I think I have a long way to go to realize some of the other fantasies. But like any ambitious man out there, I will get there!
