A Semi-rational creature confronts a universe of ever expanding fuckedupness

Does anyone else detect something in the neighborhood of performative contradiction in Country First as a campaign slogan, especially since the tacit background to the slogan is that Obama is simply interested in winning an election?
Observations from an old cranky jerk who happens to be a professional philosopher. Occasionally philosophical, most often just vulgar. Sometimes focused on sober points of logic and issues in political theory, but more frequently fixed on nonsense. Bad metal bands, crappy guitarists, stupid lyrics, celebrities, pop "culture," telemarketers, irrationality, and other annoyances. Always misanthropic. Anti-religious. Not particularly amusing, either. Some might say insulting. Strange mail. Kook magnet. Doom. Comments from other cranky jerks, young and old.
