This thread at Sister Toldjah's reminds me of a discussion I once had somewhere regarding the fact that some people just shouldn't vote. That's not to say that I think the average American should in any way be prevented. Of course not. That would be wrong. But if there was some way to convince idiots to stay home and stop pretending like they know what they're talking about, that would be great. It would mean absolutely no Democratic votes of course, but if that's what has to happen, then so be it. In other words, if Dems really want to display their patriotism, they should stay home on election day. That one selfless act on each of their parts would be regarded by me (at least) as a true indication of patriotism unlike anything they could ever show by voting for Obama.
Of course there are socialists out there. They know that Obama's a socialist and that his policies reflect a socialist bent, so yeah, they'd be voting from an educated perspective. And there are America haters out there who think everything is our fault and as Barry has friendships with some people with some celebrity who are hateful of our country, then yes, they too are educated enough to know that an Obama presidency could be sympathetic to their pathetic sensibilities. And of course, those who insist on sex without consequence know which candidate will protect their ability to kill their kids.
But as the link to Sister Toldjah's blog clearly shows, as well as the links from that post of hers, the depth and breath of stupidity amongst Obama supporters is the stuff of legend. In my own corner of the world, I have been astounded by reasons people have given me for supporting the Obamanable One. A co-worker thinks voting for a good speaker is a good thing because you'll know what he's talking about. I suggested that perhaps he would have then supported one of the greatest speakers of the 20th century, Adolph Hitler. Another aquaintance was swayed by Obama's position on ethanol, due to the fact that we grow lots of corn here in the People's Republic of Illinois. I was stupified. Ethanol. That's his issue. Jeez. And of course, the usual "We need a change" without a clear explanation of just what the hell that means or how it would look. Just shoot me.
I could go on. Believe me, I could. But the question might be, what of you rightwingers? Surely there are rightwing counterparts to those you mock? And I'd say, get your own blog, ya loser! But seriously, if you put two chimps in a booth and they voted, the one who punched Johnny Mac's ticket is, by virtue of his choice, the smarter chimp. And it's not because the chimp is well versed on economics or foreign policy, but rather, considering their penchant for throwing pooh, they see Obama for what he is.
But truly, more stupid than those highlighted in Sis' post are the educated and political of the Democrat community. They see Obama for what he is but their hatred for the right leads them to deny it or ignore it or to pretend it isn't true. And what is Obama? For all his sorry policy positions, his alliances, his world view, he's simply wrong for this country. Don't be stupid.
