Carl Meredith: Incumbents on alert

October 17, 2013 

I’m having trouble telling things apart. It seems to me that the Taliban has taken the position that any deviation from its idea of ideology is unacceptable. It seems that the Republicans and Democrats have taken the position that any deviation from their idea of ideology is unacceptable.

The major difference between those groups is the Taliban doesn’t directly cause my IRA to evaporate when it postures. All three groups have the ability to cause massive pain and suffering on the American people and have no room at all for negotiation or win-win solutions to complex problems.

I hereby resolve to vote to unemploy every incumbent politician on my ballot.
