200. Copulation Control 2004 - How America Got Screwed.
Copulation Control 2004
--How America Got Screwed.

by Fintan Dunne
3rd November, 2004

Copulation Control is they means by which the U.S. political elite copulates with the electorate. As with any copulation, this is usually preceeded by some sort of seduction. Which is where John Kerry comes in. Rattles Bones. And goes out again. With hardly a murmur....

When the electorate, particularly the valliant defenders of the Democratic Tradition, woke up on Wednesday, 3rd Nov., it was to realize that they were missing their underwear.

They have groggy recollections of a late night out on the town, on Tuesday night. And their missing political underwear surely gives a clue to what happened last night.

(Clues picked up already by some on the popular Democratic Underground forum.)

Last night, despite only dim recollections, they must have been screwed. Well and truly. It must have been exciting... at the time.

A sudden slew of critical late, late night results --for a sleepy electorate. And it's all over. The long queues a phantasm of memory. The turnout... didn't turn out as expected.

Every vote counts. But, hey! Who's counting? Not Dean, so smoothly to Kerry. So soft the wash of dissent, guided to fall silently on the rocky shores of electronic hardware. So virtual, Democracy. So long.

"Follow me," said the piper. To an election with No Exit.

That's Copulation Control.
(Like 2000 -only Ohio)
