Living In New York City - Love in the Time of Politics

November 04, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

What can I say? I'm a sucker for a dirty political campaign. The nastier, the better. I love political season for the same reason I like watching a Tarantino film. You just know something terrible is going to happen and no, you can't do anything about it except sit back and enjoy the ride. I've seen some real good ones too. Swift boats, Kenya, WMD's, and don't even get me going on the stained blue dress. I'm often confronted by people of one political leaning and asked to defend my fondness for whomever it is I am entertained by at that given moment. People think I share the same political views and ideology of these charlatans we call our elected officials. The truth is that yeah, I can see where many of these villians/heros are coming from. Hell, if I squint my eyes and stand on one leg I might even agree with parts of what they say. But I don't call myself a D or and R, I've been burned way too many times to stick my neck out that far. I do, however, love a knock down, drag out, bloody nose, call your mom, fight. Perhaps it's because I have been burned that I like to watch one of these guys go home with their tail between their legs. Some people have the Kardashians, I have the GOP.
