Now hear this! Everyone who was a died-in-the-wool, rabid, gung-ho, balls-to-the-wall Hillary Clinton Supporter! If you do not vote for Barack Obama in November, you are directed to turn in your brain because you will no longer be needing it.
I keep hearing news stories of Clinton supporters who are vowing to stay home or vote for McCain rather than cast a ballot in favor of Obama. This may be a case of the media latching on to something (anything) they feel is news-worthy, but I can’t help but judge those people as extremely stupid.
Really! You (that’s Democrats and liberal-thinkers) have been chomping at the bit for 6 years now. You’ve managed to steal Congress (and then you’ve lamented over the crazy way that Pelosi and Reid have together done zip) and you’re looking forward to a Democratically controlled White House who will most likely nominate three Supreme Court Justices. But now that your candidate didn’t do as well as the other one you’re going to pack up your ball and go home to pout? That’s not cutting off your nose to spite your face, that’s pissing on everyone’s shoes and then complaining that your feet are wet.
The differences between Clinton and Obama are a matter of tone and preference. The differences between McCain and Obama compare favorably to the differences between rocks and sperm: there’s no real comparison.
So, take your ball and go home. Don’t vote on election day. Don’t participate in the get-out-the-vote campaign that Obama does so well. You’ll be the most derided voters in recent history; more despised as a group then the entire State of Florida was in 2000. You’ll make history and isn’t that what you want?
