I'm back. You knew, with the election a mere sixty odd days away, that Arlo Harshenstein could not stay silent.
After the muted response to my autobiography I have decided to withhold further chapters until proper reverence is given to my genius.
In the meantime, Nostradamus has returned to his mire-mining ways, dredging the absolute bottom of the barrel with this recent spate of Sarah Palin Pregnancy posts... To quote the master himself, "shocking development." From a man who revered Anna Nicole, idolizes Michael Jackson, and seeks to constantly channel John Mark Karr, we should expect nothing less...
Our host's moral bankruptcy and absolute degeneracy aside, I could not resist returning, in light of the election and certain developments in my personal life.
For those interested (none of you morons, I trust), I have left my previous job. At the moment I am living off my accumulated wealth, staying in my apartment, plotting. Little has changed except I am now mercifully free from all but the (still odious) minimum of human contact.
But I have been following developments in the election quite closely, as I remain deeply attached to our national political danse macabre. My vision is of course at complete odds with one of the two contenders. But I have to say that I am largely in agreement with my erstwhile friend Nostradamus regarding the other option as well, for once.
McCain has made a major blunder in selecting Sarah Palin as his running mate. While I nod my approval with gusto at her stances on life and taxes, I shake my head vigorously against her views on religion and science. Many of you will probably not be surprised to learn (if you imbeciles are even capable of learning) that I was in favor of Bob Barr for McCain's VP pick. Of course this was not to be (as true conservatism is long dead, killed off by that spendthrift Chester A. Arthur.
As that great voice of the truest conservatism (the kind that embraced the American Revolution but despised the French) Edmund Burke said:
Your representative owes you, not his industry only, but his judgment; and he betrays, instead of serving you, if he sacrifices it to your opinion.
In deciding on Palin, McCain has violated this fundamental principle of good (ie conservative) governance. He has sacrificed his judgment to the opinions of his constituents.
In any event, you can perhaps expect more from me in the coming weeks, not that any of your worthless minds deserve it.
