A Simple Vote Can Make All the Difference
I’m watching MSNBC where spoiled rich guy Willie Geist, pampered hee hee I’m going to play both sides of the fence princess Mika Brezinski and shrill phony-everyman xenophobe Pat Buchanan are literally feasting on the Democratic Candidate version of Rockem’ Sockem’ Robots.
It’s making me crazy because they are just enjoying this way too much.
And while I’m at it, I’ve got to tell you that I’m worn out by the tug of war between the Obama and Clinton supporters on the blogosphere. I can’t read it anymore. I get it. You support your candidate and you’ve got excellent reasons for doing so. But then you probably get sick of hearing about my stupid Spawn, so we’re even.
I voted for Clinton, but I don’t count myself as a supporter of hers unless she becomes our nominee in the general election. I supported Edwards, but he dropped out before our Georgia primary in February 5. No matter what, though, and at the risk of sounding like my mother – which pains me greatly, I will vote for the Democratic candidate no matter who that person is. In that, I am quite simple-minded. Don’t like it? Hard cheese. I’ve got my reasons, too.
Which brings me to the point I really want to make. Please stop with the I will vote for McCain if…..bullshit. Please.
Look, get pissy. Kick something. Down a fifth of bad tequila. Go out and shoot off a gun. But do not vote for a Republican because you’re angry with the Democrats. Think, people, think! How can you forget what you get with Conservative policies. We’re living it every day! How happy are you right now with that?
Fucking hell, people, let’s chat about disenfranchisement.
Yes, the whole Super Delegate thing is chapping my ass. I hate the idea that Super Delegates could overturn the popular vote. I hate it for the same reason I hate the Electoral College. It takes us another step away from the democratic process. I’d love a single same-day primary in September, but I guess that would be hard to pull off. Anyway.
But for those who are putting out the idea that they will vote for McCain because they plan to be pissed that the Democrats dissed the African American or the Vagina American, well listen up! AT LEAST THE DEMOCRATS WILL NOMINATE A WOMAN OR AN AFRICAN AMERICAN.
Did you look at the pasty white men who stood on the stage at the Republican debates? They didn’t even bother to consider a woman or an African American or a Latino.
And now you’re going to vote for the Republican nominee – a white guy – because the Democrats didn’t choose the woman or the African American? ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? That’s some logic.
The bottom line is that Obama and Clinton are going to run to the middle. Like almost all politicians they are owned by corporate interests and special interest groups. As my favorite NY Times reporter David Cay Johnston says “Their constituents are their donors, not the people who vote for them.”
Yeah. So. That’s a wash among them.
So please, go ahead and write your posts of support. Go negative about the other candidate if you need to. I’d be thrilled if you didn’t throw red meat to the Republicans as you tear chunks of flesh out of each other. That goes for the candidates, too. I hurl invectives every time I hear a rerun of Hillary telling a press conference that she’s ready to be president and that John McCain is ready to be president, but Barack Obama? Well, you’d better go ask him about his resume.
What was she thinking? Holy fucking hell.
When you calm down and think about it, the job of POTUS is singularly unique. There’s only one person with the exact credentials to be president and that would be the incumbent. And none of us here want that tap-dancing dipshit to have another go at the highest office in the land.
So can we please tone down the inter-party hate? I’m not wild about either Clinton or Obama, but the idea of four or possibly eight years of President John “My Friends” McCain should make your hair your stand on end.
Do not lose sight of the fact that McCain is a Republican with Republican values. That whole maverick schtick is a load of happy horseshit. He’s just another stiff-necked hypocrite with a religious conversion, a divorce after being a playboy, a wife who can’t decide if she’d rather have a botox injection or pop a few pills stolen from a foundation she was working for……….and this dude is superior to either Democrat how?
Please, people, enough with the shrieked threats. If you vote from a victim position and hand the White House to another Republican, you victimize us all.
