So, Emily’s List is a pretty cool organization. They draft, run and support pro-choice, female candidates for political office. But apparently they have come out with an ad campaign in Iowa pushing women to vote for Clinton in the primary. And, of course, we can’t expect otherwise. It’s what they do.
But as someone who’s still praying like hell to a god that she doesn’t believe in that Edwards somehow manages to pull of the Iowa Primary and we won’t get stuck with such a fucking centrist (and instead get a kind of liberal liberal). . . I really can’t help but want to scream NOOOOOOO!!!! at the top of my lungs.
I know that I’m not the only one who’s not supporting Clinton for the nomination out there, so I ask: how are we meant to feel about this?
And speaking of those of you backing another candidate, it seems that we can officially declare Kucinich to be made of FAIL. Why? Dude was asked who he would have as a running mate, and what did he say? Ron Paul. You know, Ron fucking Paul, the white-supremacist, anti-choice wacknut who wants to get rid of the IRS and have a gold-backed currency? Yeah, him.
So, though I feel the pain for those of you who had faith in the weird, earnest man, I have to say that I feel officially vindicated. I always knew that there was something about the guy that I didn’t like. Was it the anti-choice past, the creepy demeanor? I don’t know. I agree with the guy on paper and yet, there was something about him. Something that made me shake my head no and get disapproving looks from the super-liberals. It sucked. But my position has been redeemed. And now, I no longer have to feel guilty about not liking/backing the guy, because it has been proven: he’s fucked in the head.
And lastly in election news, break out the popcorn, folks, in a little over an hour, it will finally be time for the Republican YouTube Debate! Remember how it got canceled because Mitt Romney threw a fit that the Dems were asked a question about global warming by a snow man, and then all of the other Republicans followed suit because they were scared to actually answer to the public? Well, they always claimed that they would reschedule, and to my great surprise, they did.
I’m holding no great hopes: CNN has already promised to not air the exact same kinds of questions that they did air for the Democratic debate. But Anderson Cooper is going to be moderating, and for those of you who don’t remember him doing the Democratic debate, he is the only moderator so far to actually bother to keep the candidates in line, hold them to their time restritions and make them answer the damn questions. Don’t let me down, Silver Fox. Oh, and the snow man has submitted a question. If it makes it to air, and particularly if it goes to Romney, it will all be worth it.
