I have ONE single, solitary conservative friend and I only like him because I've known him since 5th grade and from years of experience know that he's an intelligent and all around ok guy. And recently he lamented how much it sucks to be a conservative right now - mind you, I said he is intelligent, and therefore is profoundly embarrassed by George Bush and Co. and feels like he is left adrift in the current political landscape.
Well, at Sunday's local anti-war gathering, after the 3rd or 4th hippie protest song and 2nd or 3rd bad "slam poetry" recital, I too was feeling like a politico without a home.
I know most of the people at the protest have their hearts in the right place....but folks, when you sink into that worn out old koombaya mode....well, lets just say I wasn't the only one beating a retreat.
Now's not the time or place to tangent off into a nihilism speech.....but please stay tuned.
