So, wait… We let CEOs of corporations and banks destroy this economy with their greed and sociopathic tendencies, and now a CEO is being foisted upon us as governor? Is that the way it goes? Surely this can’t be right…
Truly, capitalism will be death of american politics (if it hasn’t gasped its last breath yet). I don’t want to believe we are so stupid as to allow the enemy, a member of the ruling elite, one that has learned politics as a CEO (?!), to become the governor of California. But, alas, if there is one thing I keep underestimating, it is the enormous stupidity of people.
I thought this country was supposed to elect people that were a representative of the people. I’m sure I read something like that somewhere. I am not a CEO. I am not wealthy. Chances are, neither are you. But she WILL rule this land. And when things go sour for her new “corporation” I’m sure she’ll find a way to lay us all off. eBay ain’t a fucking economically embattled state, Meg.
Anyone that doesn’t believe that this country is ruled by the corporate elite CANNOT argue against this idea anymore. The hollowest of victories for us, who believed this to be true, for now the line between politics and commerce have been erased like wet sand on the dirtiest of beaches in Venice.
By the way, you should not take this as an endorsement for that ineffectual walking joke, Jerry Brown. A man that The Dead Kennedys made fun of in the fucking 80s!
Thank you america. For proving that politics is a terrible handjob from someone that doesn’t even like us.
