Although we're a day late, Hope n' Change wants to wish everyone a happy Fat Tuesday - because if Barack Obama is reelected, there are reports that Michelle will officially make it "Low-Fat Tuesday" next year. And while reflecting on the wild craziness of Mardi Gras, we couldn't help but think how many parallels there are to our nation's current political climate...
The Democrats and Republicans are certainly "big parties," and people are being encouraged to fill the streets by Occupy Anyplace With Food, Sex, Music & Drugs.
Indiscriminate sex is pretty much the president's current campaign platform ("Yes You Can!"), and "beads for boobs" might as well be the new hashtag for Obama's "What would you do with $40" vote-buying scheme.
And there's also overlap when it comes to "hurricanes"- although one is a rum-based drink created in New Orleans, and the other was a natural disaster allegedly created by George W. Bush to destroy New Orleans...shortly before he holed up in the Oval Office so he could continue hurting the economy during Obama's first term.
Frankly, Hope n' Change doesn't mind the short term craziness and excesses of Mardi Gras, but four years of craziness and excesses from the current president is waaaaaaay too much.
Which is why, as is the case with any really spectacular hangover following a wild bender, we're hoping the American public will finally say "never again."
