How are you feeling about this guy these days?
How about this guy? (There seems to be a part of his face that's missing, but I can't figure out which...)
Bored? Disgusted? Angry?
Passover is here, the holiday where we commemorate the Jews' exodus from Egypt [assuming they were even there in the first place] and give a big nod to Moses, the guy that led them out. It's got me to thinking, maybe it's time for an enlightened monarch around these parts. Someone who's got a big stick (see the magical powers of Moses' rod)(interpret as you wish), who can rally his people and get in their face when they fuck up (see when Moses smashes the 10 commandments). Today's 2-parties-in-the-pocket-of-the-corporations-and-goaded-on-by-sensationalist-news system just doesn't seem able to get serious about shit.
I'm still a big fan of O (most of the time) but I think the problems go deeper, the corruption's too entrenched, the apathy too great. So, any suggestions for a benevolent dictator? Lou Reed? Pete from McSorleys? An Ashley/Sol tag-team? Ideas....?
P.S. happy passover everybody!
P.P.S. we're coming back to NY soon! [june]
