"I've got it! I've got it! I've finally figured out why I hate George W. Bush and the Neoconservative movement so bloody much!
They remind me of every hack, two-bit high school competitive policy debater in existence!
Hell, they remind me of me during the first three months of my gig in that activity. -_-;
See, it's so very bloody obvious that everything they say is directed more towards the goal of winning than actually, yanno, making a good policy! They're aggressively competitive, and everything in me says that, though it's certainly effective in winning seats in Congress, that's not how you run a government!
Treating politics like a massive debate tournament's got to be the stupidest way to approach it- EVER- and it's exactly how they're doing it!
Whew. And I was beginning to think that my vendetta against them was unfounded. >_>"
