When yours truly was young and Saturday morning cartoons still existed, I used to watch all the Warner Brothers characters like Bugs Bunny, Elmer Fudd, Sylvester & Tweedy, etc..
And while most of those specific cartoons are a blur to me today, one specific cartoon which did stick in my mind all these years involved Road Runner and the Coyote because it was so different from all the others involving endless chases resulting in comic-violent calamity
In this one cartoon, it depicted what if the Coyote was successful in his pursuit and actually captured & ate the Road Runner..
Then it depicted a scenario where Coyote just stopped pursuing the Road Runner and occupied his time with other things..
Here the Road Runner becomes irritated and bored because there's no reason to run if no one is going to give chase
And the point of this long intro is that it made me think of Republicans and Democrats..
Each side tends to need each other for their own nefarious purposes
How can the political game of stalemate and accomplishing nothing continue to be treated by those if there's no competitors to play against
And if there's no opposition party, whoever can they blame when policy fails and/or the nation suffers as a result of decisions made
And how in the world could those rotten Democrats galvanize their base for donations and get them excited for 2018 midterm elections if they didn't have that 'fascist-racist' Trump as their fear-mongering pinata
Obama got absolutely nothing done that was positive for the nation and instead of blaming himself for being nothing more than a black fuck-up undeserving of even being President, he just blamed Republicans for blocking everything..
The pro Trump faction and the pro-Koch Brothers faction with cadaver John McCain and his merry band of bastards meddling about and stirring trouble
That's why it is so hard to really take anything they say or do seriously
Did the man suddenly grow horns?
In fact, when Bush Jr was President and the debt ceiling needed to be raised in 2007 we believe, that goddamn black toothpick Obama spoke passionately against it and even voted against doing so!
Then when he became President in 2008 thanks to an epidemic of white-guilt that infested the minds of independent and moderate-conservative voters, he ultimately pushed for it to be raised on 3 occasion during his 8 years which we all suffered through
More precise, it is all one super long and tiring Road Runner & Coyote cartoon...
Personally if it was up to us, coyote Trump would capture, rip and tear that Democrat 'Road Runner' into a million little pieces then move on to actually fixing this nation in ways that will truly benefit everyday people
He 'chases' just enough to give appearances while never so sincerely that his enemy is cornered..
Or who knows.. Maybe he is the Road Runner
He needs them and they need him and we all suffer for it
