omg! the f'n rnc
Hey guys, it's Republican National Convention time! Now fellow Canadians, don't go hiding your heads in the sand just because you think America is a "different country" or "scarier than hell these days". You'd be missing out on the fun side of fascism if you did that. The RNC is like a big ol' party! Sure it's scary — like Hallowe'en! Just check out Arnold Schwarzenegger's keynote address on today's theme: A Land of Opportunity.
It is terribly, perfectly psychologically researched, and too Ahnold to be true. Just try and stomach it all the way to the really flabbergasting footage. I mean, beginning with a crocodile-tears tale of his war-torn Soviet childhood (perversely reminiscent of current descriptions of Iraq) he actually says *BIG SPOILER HERE* that he wants to terminate terrorism and free the States from economic girly-men. *END OF BIG SPOILER*
Well, a quick google shows that he talks that way in politics all the time... oh. I got the feeling watching him that he will be America's president some day. I don't know if the preeminent American-ness of that would make the decline of things better or worse.
