Afterglow and Regret
Posted by PintofStout on November 8, 2006
America woke up this morning and some of us had a little extra spring in our step and a good feeling about the night before. Some of us awoke to a burning sensation and 10 bucks on the night stand. The first group decided on consensual copulation (and may have enjoyed a cigarette while they still could); the second were used like two-bit whores and left with only regret and a promise to call (they never do).
As much as the voters say it will be different this time, the behavior is habitual. When the dirty feeling has passed (a shot may take care of that burning) and conditions have still continued to decline, they’ll start looking for another leech that promises them commitment, pretends to listen, and is gone as soon as they get what they want.
Like syphilis on a frat boy, a divided government will only slow them down for a little while and only slightly. So I would suggest some shots and a change in habits.
