From autopilot to afterburners
Libertastic here. For those of you who buy into "the man's" concept of time you'll notice that I haven't posted in about ten months. What could possibly awaken me from my slumber?
Yes, its true. Stephen Colbert is finally running for President of these United States and all it took was a scant year and a half of begging by me and my fellow Colbertocrats to make it happen.
While this is obviously great news I'm concerned that some of the forward-thinking Americans who previously supported the petition urging Stephen Colbert to run for President are dismissing it as a useless relic from the dark era prior to Stephen's heroic Presidential run.
In one way they're right. With Stephen running for President we should be able to kick up our collective feet, sip a Mojito and relish our victory. But in another more important way, they're idiots.
If you're trying to hammer a nail into something you don't just bang it once and then walk away. You keep banging it until the job is done. Stephen is the nail and we are the hammer. It's our job to keep banging away at Stephen until he is firmly lodged into the drywall that is the white house. And once he's President we can hang the pretty picture of........uh......let's say Tort reform on him. I haven't worked out the analogy completely but you get the idea.
Thankfully, while some Colbertocrats are abandoning their posts many others are stepping up. As of this posting more than 3600 people have signed the petition urging Stephen Colbert to run for President. For perspective, that's about one signature for every person who signed the petition urging Stephen Colbert to run for President . Impressive, huh?
When I started the Colbertocrat movement in June of 2006 a lot of people thought I was nutso. Not unlike a cat with some sort of fruit rind on its head. But like the cat with the fruit rind on its head I too faced down adversity with steely eyed determination.
My name is Libertastic and I am a proud Colbertocrat. My work isn't done and neither is yours. Will you join me?
