Last night, I saw the brain-dead.
I was watching a news programme as they did a final wind up of the general election as today is Moratorium Day, and tomorrow is the election itself.
The Great Unwashed were being asked about their opinions of the parties on offer and the general consensus was that Fianna Fail are going to get a hammering. This disappointed me a little, I must confess. I don’t want Fianna Fail to get a hammering. I want them to be totally obliterated off the political landscape. Neither Fianna Fail nor the Greens deserve a single vote, and I would go so far as to say that a vote for either is an act of treason.
They interviewed one woman. She dithered and doddered and said she really wasn’t so sure about Labour or Fine Gael. The then perked up and said that Micheal Martin had a nice face so she will probably vote Fianna Fail.
So there you have it. A micro-encapsulation of all that is wrong with Ireland today. A fucking dimwit who is going to vote for the party that bankrupt our country and sold us out to the EU, and she is going to do so because Micheal Martin ‘has a nice face’.
Words really do fail me. Have they learned nothing over the past two years? Have they really believed the lies and obfuscation of the traitors who destroyed our country? That woman and her ilk are just as responsible for our catastrophic situation as the politicians themselves.
I don’t care if the alternatives are confusing. I don’t care if the alternatives aren’t much better. The fact is that they are alternatives, and they cannot be as bad as the incumbents. And if people can’t bring themselves to vote for an alternative government then they shouldn’t vote at all.
But voting for Fianna Fail because Micheal Martin ‘has a nice face’?
God give me fucking strength.
