America, Inc.

Ah, the George W. Bush presidency: like herpes, it's the gift that keeps on giving.

Forget "left" or "right": if there was any doubt left where the real power lies in this country, I think this news finally put it to rest once and for all.

Really, what more is there to say right now? "I, for one, welcome our new corporate overlords"? Perhaps "meet the new boss /same as the old boss"?

Between this deflating (and not very surprising) news and the staggering ability of the Left to completely and carelessly piss away the political mandate of a lifetime in less than twelve months, I don't think I have ever been this angry, upset, and pessimistic over the direction of this country.

What in the hell are we letting ourselves turn into? What happened to the idea of accountability, or even basic morality? It has been said before by incurable cynics that every man has his price, but never has it been so nakedly apparent that there is nothing left in humanity that isn't for sale to the highest bidder.

Maybe I just need to get really drunk this weekend. Yeah. That will solve everything.
