I recently read somewhere, "Do not confuse irony and cynicism." I suppose Dada falls among the latter of these two. Whereas, irony, according to it's author, "is animated by hope -- for a better, more just, freer world, all of whose inhabitants share ethically in its abundance." I'm all for that, but...
...I would submit that irony is the trait of our presidential choices (again!) for this upcoming fall's election. Where the mere opening of the candidate's mouths drown us in oceans of hypocrisy. In that vein, I nominate Dada's choice for the Cynic's candidate with the following qualification from a political scientist who suggested if you must partake the addiction of voting in the belief it makes a difference, vote for every third party or write-in candidate choice you can instead.
You may argue that's wasting your vote. Granted, bad habits are hard to kick. But Dada says, "So go ahead, continue this nation's drunken binge of voting for an Obama or a Romney." (And hope the least of the worst will be better than the worst of the least.)
The Cynic's Choice
For us little people, ignored by politicians, but who are courted every four years by them and suddenly lavished with glowing promises (lies), only for us to resume our role as 'nothings' the day after elections (this year on Nov. 7th), comes "Nobody!" -- a candidate we all can believe in.
