Dear "Wah, Wah, Disenfranchisement!" Hillary Supporters,

posted by John Blanco @ 8:35 PM


To those of you who are now supporting our Democratic nominee, welcome aboard! We are glad to continue the fight for Democratic principles as one now! However, there are some of you who are confused about Michigan and Florida. For those of you, this note:

Dear Lunatics,

It has come to my attention that some of you are so angry that you lost the Democratic primary, you are vowing to vote for McCain. Your decision to subvert your core principles and vote completely against everything you have been fighting for is alarming.

You say you were robbed of the nomination. How is this so? You say 18 million people have been ignored. However, what about the 18 million (plus a lot more) that voted for Barack Obama? Did they not have anything to say about this? You are as offensive as you claim to be offended.

Secondly, why are you lunatic supporters convinced that Barack Obama is trying to disenfranchise you -- as the poor soul in the movie below claims. Children, Florida and Michigan broke the party rules. Neither Barack nor Hillary made the case that the votes shouldn't count. You're quite mad. The *DNC* made the decision. And guess what, political primaries are run by -- you guessed it -- the party!

Barack *and* Hillary both signed the agreement to not recognize the two states. Hillary is an equal partner. And Chris Dodd. And Joe Biden. And so on and so forth. They showed party unity in enforcing the rules for what order the states vote. Is the system perfect? No. But, are those the rules?

Yes, they are.

And THEY DID THE EXACT SAME THING, Barack and Hillary. But, something funny happened: Hillary won both states and still fell dreadfully behind Barack in the primary process. So what did she do?

She has convinced you that Barack is disenfranchising you.

It's sad, really. She's fooling you. And now acid-boy is pissed and spent a good portion of his summer vacation from school making a dramatic video saying as much. But, little does he know, HILLARY CLINTON disenfranchised him.

It's OK now. The Democrats reached an agreement and still let you guys seat your delegates. So, all of you that voted anyway, got rewarded. Hell, Barack wasn't even on the ballot in Michigan, and he STILL signed off on the deal to count his vote as the "Uncommitted." How excited do you think his voters were to come in and vote for -- uh -- not him.

Markos Moulitsas had even used the "fake vote" to push for Democrats to vote for Mitt Romney. You see, this vote was never supposed to count. But you can count your lucky stars Hillary won both in the end, and had them counted.

And ya know what, you still lost by over two hundred delegates. So stop your bitching, stop your crying, and wake up and stand up for your Democratic principles!

Stand up for universal health care, for a sane foreign policy, for stem cell research which will be funded the moment Barack is in office. Stand up if you're pro-choice! John McCain has vowed to fill the Supreme Court with more Alitos and Clarence Thomas clones. How will you like that? Do you see how old these pro-choice justices are getting compared to their anti-choice mates?

What about Katrina? Do you want to see the further dismantling of our emergency response? Will the blood of the future dead be on your hands if disaster strikes again with a failed FEMA response?

What about the single mothers who need the support of their government? Will the destruction of our human services be enough to make you happy? All for your petty anger?

Get. Over. It. And. Vote. Democrat.

Why is this so difficult for you to understand? If you do not want to be part of the true Democratic Party rising -- the crashing of the gates if you will -- then, indeed, please leave our party.

Perhaps you were, in the end, simply the problem. Either get the hell out of the way...or...get your head back in the game and support Barack Obama for President.

Love, Me.

Fear the stupid!
