By All Means, Put Your Stupidity Out There

I’m snarling in frustration at all these piteous mea culpas flying from the ranks of independents and disillusioned moderates in both parties. Witness the latest in self flagellation:

I am a registered Independent. I voted for Barack Obama. And for that, I am sorry.

I’m not sorry for you. I’m sorry for me. Because I voted for Obama for me, not for you. I voted for hope and change and all the intangibles that Obama was peddling in the wake of the financial crisis, Sarah Palin, Sept. 11 and all the other ills that shook our country in the last decade. I wanted something new. Something different. What I got was, I suppose, exactly what I voted for – a spin doctor. And not a very good one at that.

Well, I’m sorry for us, sweetie, not you ~ trust me. Because the gist of your being swung to the dark pit of despair side boils down to “Before John McCain unwittingly picked a tabloid-magazine cover girl for his running mate…But as soon as Palin climbed out of her igloo and onto the national scene… I felt my choice was to risk McCain dropping dead and letting the world’s most well-known hockey mom run this country…But between picking Palin, suggesting that the first debates be delayed and, well, picking Palin, he made it easy for Obama to win…

I get your drift. You’re sooo smart, you were horrified by the thought of McCain’s untimely demise leaving the country in the hands of that…pick your epithet. (I like “governor”, but hey! YOU’RE the genius.) But in all your romantic fulminations about our barefooted, globe-trotting, single/grand parented, mixed race, never-held-a-real-job, Apollo descended unto man, eloquent-as-long-as-it’s-scripted President, it NEVER occurred to you that the SAME standard you held McCain to could have as easily befallen the handsome Adonis who so enthralled you? NEVER?!?!?!

That, considering the vagaries of fate, he too, could be…say…hit by a bus in Chicago stepping off the curb in front of Whole Foods? Leaving organic arugula to fly everywhere and this country…

…in Joe Biden’s hands.

Because, thanks to you, God FORBID anything happens to the guy you elected, that’s who we got.

And Sarah Palin was worse ~ to the point of multiple dings, donks and digs in your sad little commentary ~ than that utterly terrifying thought? And you don’t mention his dumb ass once? Not ONCE did the thought of that complete doofus being selected by your One give you pause about HIS abilities/lack thereof?

That is You are just so sad. If that’s the best you can do, STFU already.

    I really don’t want to hear from the morons who regret voting for Obama. You made your choice, and now we have to live with it.

    And if they’re seeking sympathy, STFU. Again.

    Maybe I’m wrong, but I’m “hearing” the “I didn’t vote for him for you, I voted for him for ME” as “I think I am the only person who matters and the country can go to hell as long as my ego is sufficiently stroked and I feel GOOD about myself.”

    Feh. What JeffS said.

    Give it up, THS. You’re arguing reality with a fantisizer who had no clue then and none now.

    Palin mopped the floor with Biden in the VP debates yet this tootie couldn’t connect the dots. NOW we get feel-sorry-for-me-I-know-not-what-I-did?

    Hell, people that smart never learn how dumb they really are. Here’s my solution: election campaigns must end two weeks before the vote and all registered voters have to take a literacy test to see if they know enough about a candidate to make an informed choice.

    She and millions of others would fail and we’d be spared the after-the-fact whining.

    Joe was a college prof, he relates to young people and like,like he is sooo experienced.

    And,and the Daily Kos, Firedog Lake and MoveOn thinks she is evil! How could George Clooney and Brad Pitt be wrong, their movies are sooo good! And Julia Roberts helped a bunch of people by going to court, she really, really cares!

    What crazy calculus juxtaposes McCain with 9/11?

  5. nightfly says:

    Yojimbo – the same crazy calculus that claims that the markets fell over the last week because Scott Brown was elected to the Senate in Massachusettes.

    Really, that was front-page, over the fold, from the AP in today’s Star-Ledger.

  6. Yojimbo says:

    Scott Brown was it. Well that’s a relief, I can put those calcium fortified antacid tablets back in the jar now. Silly me, I thought it might have something to do with the Bernanke nomination stalling, they have until Sunday to find a replacement and get him or her nominated after all. Glad to know that the Brits raising their threat assessment level to duck and cover status had nothing to do with it.

    I suppose the market is rebounding today because Brown WAS elected and the Middle-Class Task Force has some recommendations for working families. Thanks to the AP for clearing that up.


  7. Yojimbo says:

    I wonder if the number of crude pickup jokes exceeded the number of recommendations out of the middle-class task force? Just asking.
