Same Old, Same Old

Here's a pretty old legacy post from the blog archives of Geekery Today; it was written about 20 years ago, in 2004, on the World Wide Web.

I suppose that I’ll read some of the commentary on the speech tomorrow. But, as happens so often with this administration, it’s just the same damned stuff, and there’s little to do other than repeat what you’ve already said. Thus, here is my summary and commentary for the night:

Good evening. Lies, lies, lies. Self-serving hypocritical rhetoric. Simplistic misrepresentation of facts... ... Naked emotional appeals, and more damned lies. Thank you, good night. (comic courtesy of Tom Tomorrow)

Are you surprised by anything that’s been said by anyone at this convention? If so, why the hell are you surprised? Why even bother talking about it at length? When the Bush League give speeches, they just lie. There’s very little left to be surprised at; save your indignation for throwing the bastards out.

    The lies are debasing, but the ceaseless clapping is pure masochism. I can’t stress enough how theatre of the absurd and surrealism seem like a more meaningful style than continuing these political debates under the assumptions of rationality.
