It's true, I'd much rather hang out with Barack Obama than Ronald Reagan -- and not just because there are only so many fun activities you can do with a desiccated corpse -- but because two years into Reagan's term no one had to be told what he did. It didn't even matter if it were true. Americans would tell you Reagan cut inflation, made us stronger abroad and restored our national pride. Furious, the liberal intellectuals would then take to the media to explain why Reagan's seeming accomplishments were a smoke screen. Why he had taken credit where none was due. And point out all the unforgivable things he hadn't done or did in secret. Meanwhile, the right would merely smirk at those brainiac, detail-orientated liberals, while mumbling things like, "There you go, again," because they knew they'd already won. And confronted with this WTF website now, these detractors snort up the same strangely sufficient retorts because they know this list of accomplishments will merely buzz like an irritant over the masses who are working harder for less if they're working at all.
I may be only a simple Internet writer, but I know how not to argue online. It's like trying to prove to a troll why your stuff is funny. People laugh or they don't. They might not laugh because the words you use are too big, or because they don't understand the concept of satire or, possibly, because they're intimidated by the obvious girth of your manhood which even your comedic eloquence cannot hide. But the point is, if someone's not laughing, you can't convince them you're funny. And stay at home moms forced back into the workplace, or office professionals working at 50 percent their prior salary or soldiers still waiting to come home don't care about What The Fuck Has Obama Done So Far.Com's list of accomplishments. If you're not giving them a voter erection (or "voterection" tm) you can't explain one into their pants.
More importantly, what the people aggressively linking the WTF site don't understand is that the voterections that need stimulating are not connected to devoted liberals or conservatives. It's the people in the middle, presently hanging soft and confused, who will decide the next election. After all, the hardcore 30 percent on either political side will always support their Republican or Democratic candidate. But Glenn Beck and Michael Moore will never be welcomed into moderate homes (or my home for that matter after that disastrous strip poker game I hosted for tubby egomaniacs). Nevertheless, the WTF site rallies the extremes, making the left feel good about itself while catalyzing the right to spew insults. Go to the Facebook walls of any of your friends (or many of my soon to be former friends) where the link is posted, and see the blind hatred and meaningless cheerleading that bubbles up underneath, canceling each other out in a mess of comment vomit. A strange site for Barack Obama. The man who got America hard in the first place by telling us there is no Red and Blue America, but only the United States of America.
