Just when I was starting to waver. Just when I was beginning to consider, possibly, just maybe, voting for Obama…the New Democratic Party™ got in my face again. I’m done.
Joe Cannon says it all for me.
Remember the “Al Gore’s a liar” campaign? The oft-heard accusation had no basis in fact, but sheer repetition caused it to lodge in the American consciousness.
Same shit; different party. Sarah Palin does not believe in “abstinence only,” and she is not a Dominionist Christian. Nevertheless, those ideas have lodged in the left-wing brain, and not even a surgical operation will dislodge them.
Why is it suddenly acceptable to wear “SARAH PALIN IS A CUNT” t-shirts? No-one (thank God) would dare to wear a shirt emblazoned with the message “BARACK OBAMA IS A NIGGER.” In fact, no-one would feel comfortable wearing a shirt bearing the value-neutral message “BARACK OBAMA IS AFRICAN-AMERICAN.” Yet lefties now consider “SARAH PALIN IS A CUNT” to be high fashion. I’d love to hear someone offer an excuse for that exercise in hypocrisy. Strained rationalization is my favorite form of humor.
The left has turned into an emetic morass of human sewage. When you go into the voting booth, picture the faces of the smug, haughty young creeps pictured in the photo above. They represent the new Democratic party. They are the reason why this lifelong Dem left the party. If you reward the Obots with your vote, you are saying: “I want the Democratic party to keep acting like that.”
Obots would have us believe that Palin’s alleged attempt to get rid of a bad-apple taser-happy state trooper is worthy of infinite investigation. Ah, but when the subject turns to Obama’s unquestioned efforts to change Illinois state law in order to give crooked cronies a chance to grab state funds, we’re told that matter is unimportant. Nothing to see here; move along. Kos and Josh Marshall would support Duke Cunningham for president if Duke were a Dem — and chic-ly black.
I haven’t changed. I’m still a liberal. But the political world has shifted around me.
Don’t call my vote for John McCain a protest vote, although there will nevertheless be some pinching of the nostrils. For all of his faults, McCain is the better candidate — and, no matter what the prog brainwashers would have you believe, he has run a far more honest campaign. Neither candidate is a liberal, but — if we discount Obama’s lie-filled rhetoric — McCain is the more liberal of the two. I suspect that he may be another Eisenhower — a get-things-done military man who will choose economic pragmatism over a strict laissez faire ideology, thereby infuriating the hard rightists.
I too will be voting for John McCain and Sarah Palin. Deal with it.
On Edit: It gets worse.
