Feelin' Massachusetts

I walk around
This little town.
I spit on the ground
And wait for the sky to fall down.
Show me the way to the door.
Show me out 'cause I'm
So, so, so, so, so, so, so, so bored

So the next stop is Ohio then. Don't worry about me, I'll be fine. And probably updating here once or twice a month. Hope you like Lifetime movies as much as I do.

Even though I'm about to be replaced, it would be remiss of me if I didn't link to this article about Nationals Stadium. It's really a stunner. I insist you read the entire thing and let it wash over you.

When DCist reported that I was leaving, some dude in the comments chastised me about being consistently wrong about the stadium deal. That's when it occurred to me that the stadium deal proponents were no brighter than the people so eager to invade Iraq in 2003. All the evidence and events wouldn't supercede their wanting to be right. Any moron could see that such an invasion would be disasterous. And yet sub-morons (including my parents, hi Mom and Dad!, and my last two preferred presidential candidates) convinced themselves that this was the right thing to do. Now we have damage that can't be undone.

With the stadium, we were giving away an unprecedented amount of money for an unproven product. This is retarded. Anyone with a brain should have seen the potential for this to go badly. But no. These mongoloids just plug up their ears, close their eyes, and wait for the problems to go away.

My priorities are so damaged that I'll vote for a legislator who supported the invasion (Kerry and Clinton) but I have never and will never vote for or support anyone who crammed the stadium legislation down our throats.

So, stadium proponents/sub-morons, I double-fucking-dare you to read that article and not come away with the conclusion that the stadium deal was an unprecedented disaster.

The worst part, there are going to be people crawling out of the woodwork to make that case. Just like the true believers who think we found WMD in Iraq and that the surge has worked. Well, I'm done with you. You are wrong. You will always be wrong. And if it ever comes up for discussion when I'm visiting DC or something, I am going to lord it over you. I have no time for your stupidity.

If I have a legacy, which I won't because I'm a blogger, I hope it's that people think of me when even the most stubborn among us admit that the stadium deal was a colossal failure.

Late Night Shots, Laura Sessions Stepp, the Metro. All are peanuts to me compared to the stadium deal. So that the WaPo article would come out on my last day is like a gift from the angels.

Alright, the replacement blogger should be starting next week. She'll be using a different e-mail address since the old one (whyihatedc at gmail dot com) is attached to some fantasy sports trophies that I don't want to have disappear.

Thanks for reading my poorly thought out posts for the past two plus years. I really enjoyed my time here. xoxo

    A poem lovely as a tree.

  2. I hope your replacement is as bitter and angry as you - I've really come to depend on my periodic dosage of bile here! Good luck in Ohio, although I can't imagine that it will be that stellar of a place. Will there be bitchery about Ohio as well?

    The Stadium financial craziness sounds a lot like what will be in store with the Cape Wind Project - that you support!

    ^ Isnt that sig only for women and gays to use?

  6. HEY. the cape wind project is a phenomenal idea and is not comparable to a dc baseball team because there's no chance that it Won't actually generate the energy for which it is proposed. the only controversy there is "a thing visible on the horizon." and visible only to those who wipe their posteriors with benjamins. Gosh.

  8. At least no one in the organization is being investigated in a scam to skim money off of signing bonuses to Dominican players. Oh wait...

    Good luck in Ohio. It's definitely a place.
