I was browsing youtube an hour or so, when I came across this old video that even as a little kid I loved;

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z8Q-sRdV7SY

The old Jibjab This Land parody. After watching it and laughing my ass off once more, I began wondering; what happened in six years that made us go from this coming out and everybody both left and right laughing like mad at our guy and the other guy, to this state where politicians will completely go back on their word on both ends just to rally their base?

The war and the recession. It's not like we were never like this. Most of the times when we have war there are increased tension between political parties/ideologies.

Next hendrix is like a a sidesplitting triumph of slapstick and scatology, a runaway moneymaker and budding franchise, the worst thing to happen to Kazakhstan since the Mongol hordes, and, a communist.

Things were just as contentious in 2004. Probably more so. Remember those b.s. Swift Boat ads that impugned Kerry's war record and likely cost him the election?

I don't understand the question. I don't think politics was any more honest a game six years ago, if that's what yr asking.

Well Will.I.Am told everyone to Rock the Vote or Die or some shit like that, then everyone came out and voted. Unfortunately, MORE votes doesn't mean SMARTER votes.
This is why I don't like arguing on the internet.

Oh the good ol' days, when we all had a touch of fun with politics, and all we had to worry about was zombie apocalypse...

That's awfully naive, necrosis. Politicians have been as they are since before Mark Anthony gave Ceasar a pat on the back with a knife.

Actually, Mark Antony was Caesar's bro. Brutus & Cassius patted him on the back with a knife.
