The Pimp-in-Chief

Ernie McCray does a nice job comparing the Oscar-winning song to our pimp.

And the pimp in the movie says "It's f--- up where I live, but that's just how it is. It might be new to you, but it's been like this for years." And he says something about how, when it comes down to what's happening in his world, "It's blood, sweat and tears." But our pimp shares no tears as he looks out at people who've shed blood and tears for years and years yet have no medical care or food to eat and have no place to live. And it's been like that for years, and others have tried to make it right but Dubya has absolutely no help to give. He's too busy pimp slapping folks in places faraway, trying to tell them how to live. But he doesn't have to knock us, we the people, around because as his "ho's" we only show our disdain in polls. Then we just walk the streets as pitiful souls who don't fully understand just how democracy goes.

Go read. You'll like it.
