well, fuckit, ok

Tens of thousands of people used the ImpeachBush.org web site to send an email or fax to their elected official demanding that Bush and Cheney be impeached for High Crimes and Misdemeanors. More than one thousand people per hour sent letters in the first twelve hours alone.

Stupid fucking sanctimonious waste of paper.
Update: Help this blog atone for its deplorable veneer of cynicism by clicking a link, or two.
Update II: Oh that's it man, Yglesias has got to go. This has been a pas au-delà event.

You're right. Better to remain silent on issues central to our (floundering) democracy. Or better yet, to whine about it while pretending to plot some sort of vague intellectual revolution.

May I sign you up then, Frank?

Vague Intellectual Whiners Who Send the Occasional Fax (VIWHSOF).

If only one person sends a letter because of this post, it will have succeeded.

Frank Booth said...

For what? For smoking a couple of DuMaurier Lights with you while shaking our heads in disgust at how stupid and banal everybody else is? Ooooh, yeah! Sign me up, dude!

Matt said...

You disappoint me, Frank.

Matt said...

Was it the fact that I sent a fax, or that I doubted very much it would do any good that got you so riled up?

Alas, I do not smoke.

Frank Booth said...

I am pleased, Matt, that you sent a fax. What annoys me is your cynicism--or at least, your veneer or cynicism. If you really believe that it's a waste of paper, why kill the trees? Don't you like trees?

Matt said...

Yeah, trees are ok.

Kynicism is ok too.

In any case, don't worry Mr. Booth, this blog will never sue you.
