JAG: OH MY GOD I am so sick of the Barack Obama bandwagon. I'm sorry. He might be wonderful but I cannot tell for all the smoke and mirrors and race-card playing (by his supporters). Is he made of spun sugar and Christmas? WTF?
Apparently he will get the nomination because the press has decided it. And god help you if you don't go to pieces over how wonderful he is because you are clearly a racist,commie, conservative, baby-eating, warmongering hater. God help you if you point out that no one is perfect and that maybe, perhaps, he is rather vague and light-weight thus far.
And I fucking hate that video that is making the rounds.(Prompted by the local news taking the time to inform viewers that Obama is in some location right now talking about the need for change. Is that news?)
What I hate is that everyone wants to vote for him because he's black. That's as bad as NOT voting for him because he's black. All this "change" stuff is such lightweight rhetoric that I can't believe it's "swept" the country and "impassioned" the citizens.
JAG: And a-fucking-men to what you said about why people are voting for him. It's the old "I have black friends!" thing. The race-baiting going on is so deeply offensive. And he is letting it happen, probably encouraging it. I mean, why not? It's working. And the squawking about the Clintons stealing the election and the super delegates, etc. is so stupid. I'll vote for him if he is the democratic nominee for president but I proudly voted for Hillary Clinton in the VA primary and would love to see her in office. Having said that, I don't worship her. Who worships a goddamn politician? Oh. Yeah. Stupid people.
