the living brains

Bush got us into Iraq, JFK into Vietnam. Bush stole the election in Florida; Kennedy stole his in Chicago. Bush outed a CIA agent; Kennedy left hundreds of them to die in the surf at the Bay of Pigs. Bush lied about his military service; Kennedy accepted a Pulitzer Prize for a book written by Ted Sorenson. Bush was in bed with the Saudis, Kennedy with the Mafia. Oh.

    1. Expressing a predilection for any potential POTUS is of a kind with the sexual anxieties in The Shawshank Redemption, whereby Andy Dufresne, railroaded for a double murder of his wife and her lover, and sentenced to life imprisonment in the eponymous state penitentiary, having stoically withstood anal gang-rape administered by a coterie of “bull queers”, vigorously rebuffs the gang leader’s attempt at a change of venue, retorting: “Anything you put in my mouth you’re gonna lose.” Whereupon, undaunted by the threat of receiving eight inches of steel in his ear, this rectally violated convict ends up beaten within an inch of his life for the sake of maintaining his oral virginity. Likewise with our electorate discriminating between its Presidential candidates poised to violate different promises codified within its Bill of Rights, on the basis of the jailhouse punk’s choice between hips and lips.

      Perhaps this intransigence stands to reason. A manly man can be expected to clench his buttocks and jaws alike at the prospect of sexual violation. But only one of these responses will suffice to diminish the manhood of his violator. Unlike buggery, irrumation depends on slack-jawed acquiescence of its recipient. For that reason, it is much more humiliating than the anal variety. Only such notions can explain the preferences maintained by our electorate within the bipartisan political system.
