thanks for nothing, jerks

Thanks to all of you who voted for Clinton. You've ensured four more years of Republican rule.

Seriously, I want to hear from one of you. Anybody. I want to know why you voted for Clinton. Why you believe she can transcend the vast nation of Americans who hate her guts and will never vote for her. Yes, her reputation is undeserved. But she doesn't possess the power or inspiration to overcome that.

Enjoy four more years of military-industrial complex. Four more years of restricted civil rights. Four more years of massive debt, four more years of right-wing judges, four more years of Halliburton and Blackwater and dead American boys and girls.

Defend yourself, Clinton fans. Tell me your delusion about how she suddenly becomes a superstar public speaker, who brings people to tears with her passion and hope to bring America together.

Obama speaks of not a blue state or red state but a United States of America.

Hillary is a human wedge.

Thanks a bunch, kiddos. (The demographic data shows Hillary was put over the top by women and Latinos, very few of whom voted for Obama. Since this blog is read by roughly 98% white dudes, this rant may be falling on deaf ears.)

Oh, and all those conservatives, throwing up in their mouths at the idea that "liberal" John McCain is their candidate? They'll be climbing over themselves for a third opportunity to vote in the box opposite from the one marked "Clinton."

Seriously, are you just idiots? Do you not possess the capability of rational thought?

See, from my perspective, my democratic choices are limited to a free trader (Obama) and another free trader (Clinton). With Edwards out of the race, I think I'm voting based on looks, and even in that department, Obama has Hillary beat. OK, I made most of that last bit up.

If Hillary ends up our candidate, Tim, we're gonna have to do whatever we can to get her elected. Another four or eight years of reptilian, err, republican administration and there will be no family supporting, middle class jobs left.

We'll all be wage slaves and I'm not making that bit up.

If I'd been able to vote, I would have voted for Obama. I think it's horribly unfair that you have to be registered to either party in order to have a say in most states' primaries.

If you're not a registered member of the party then why should you be able to vote in the primary? We have a two party system and if you want a say in who represents one of those parties you have to be a member.

Tim, I put up our San Juan County vote breakdown on the website. Mildly interesting. More specifically there were 4 people under the age of 30, about half and half women/men, whites only.

the other day at work someone compared obama's campaign to a simple marketing campaign, where you talk up a product that no one knows anything about. i thought that was interesting.

Tim,

I have to disagree on one thing. Hillary's reputation does indeed felicitous.

Ron Paul, that's who I would vote for "IF" he had a snowballs chance in hell. I kjonw he has some bad ideas, but who doesn't? At least he believes in the the constitution and what this country was founded on.
