Where the hell did the weekend go, y’all? Lawd, a bitch is busier than ever this time of year (yawn).
Anyhoo (yawn once again)…
This bitch has been pondering elections!
First up, Russia! Longtime readers know that this bitch adores following Russian politics almost as much as I adore Russian vodka (wink). So, I monitored the Russian election (my people call it fixed) closely over the weekend.
United Russia (President Putin’s party) won some 65% of the vote which should equal at least 70 seats in the Russian Parliament. The Communist Party was the only other political party to make the cut but they only achieved 11% of the vote.
Putin feels validated and all indications point to his retaining power as a result of these election total even after he's supposed to step down as is constitutionally required.
Now that’s what I call a political hustle!
My goodness, if our allies are getting their election fraud on I wonder what our sworn international enemies are up to!
Onward to Venezuela, where President Hugo Chavez attempted to seize power for ever and ever and ever….
…but lost that bid for people approved total rule.
Ummm, well…that goes a wee bit against type but America wasted no time issuing the following statement.
“In a country that wants to be a democracy, the people spoke, and the people spoke for democracy and against unlimited power." U.S. Undersecretary of State Nicholas Burns
Damnit to hell and back again, that made my Afro hurt.
This is why people are tired of our bullshit!
We blow kisses and ignore the oppression of the masses at the hands of emerging dictatorships we’ve chosen as allies but toss elitist “I’m so glad you people decided to be democratic but I'm still not picking you to play kick ball” comments at a country we’ve been trying to paint as a dictatorship that just politically demonstrated it answers to the political will of it’s people.
And finally, let's take a quick look at our own election-based primary race.
A bitch has enjoyed one broadcast happening above all others - the exploration by media hounds, as if surprised and totally beyond shocked, of two adorably telling questions…
Why would women voters not vote for Hillary? & Who would have predicted that Obama would have to earn the black vote?
Aren’t they freakishly cute questions in a 1954's social revival kind of way?
Women voters are actually considering the issues and not just leaping at the opportunity to make history (gasp)?!
Black voters actually want to hear what all the candidates have to say and expect Obama to (double gasp followed by a sputter) earn their vote?!
Someone bring forth smelling salts stat! Tim Russert is having a case of the vapors...
