When asked if I can tell the difference between an infected boil on someone’s butt, or the Democratic Party, I will answer no. Of course, I would also answer in the negative if I were making the same comparison with the Republican Party. In my opinion, they both need to be lanced and drained from the body politic. The problem is how to do it and still stay within the bounds of accepted human behavior.
Like any butt boil, removal is going to be painful for everyone concerned. The typical procedure would be to lance, drain, cauterize and then bandage the little boo boo. But, that’s the problem with both political parties. They are very resistive to the process by which removal is both forceful and cleansing.
So, perhaps a mandate is now becoming clear. If every Tea Party advocate and Independent on election day 2012 will please be so kind as to vote for a Republican, that will help flush the maximum possible number of Democrats from office. Then, the next go around, we can go after the sitting Republicans and get them the hell out of Washington also. That’s the game plan.
If we are persistent, then perhaps this is one sore on our collective hinnie that will eventually go away to be replaced by good healthy tissue in the form of a much stronger body Republic.
