There's Always Gonna Be Somebody

posted by John Blanco @ 9:13 PM


And in There's-Always-Going-To-Be-One-Fucking-Idiot news, this lady, a Clinton delegate to the DNC, has decided she will vote for John McCain rather than Barack Obama:

In an interview, Bartoshevich expressed lingering unhappiness over the Democratic nominating process, said Clinton was treated unfairly by the party, and said she has deep reservations about Obama's lack of experience and his judgment.

"I'm kind of disenfranchised," she said.

She said she planned to vote for Clinton at the convention, but in an Obama-McCain match-up in November, "I will not be voting for Obama. I will cast my vote for John McCain.

Said Bartoshevich: "I just feel you need to have somebody who has experience with foreign matters."

Now, remember, this vote means nothing. It just means it's a vote for John McCain to be the Democratic nominee. Barring bizarro world, he'll likely not out-delegate Barack.

And, she certainly has a right to vote for McCain in the general. It's her American-born right to vote against everything she believes in. But, still, I find her reasoning hilarious.

Here. John McCain. Experience with foreign matters. The man who voted to bomb Iraq. The man who said we'd be greeted as liberators. The man who said it would be a cakewalk. The man who said anyone who thought this was going to be a cakewalk was silly. The man who sang, "Bomb Iran." The man who said he has no problem being in Iraq for 100 years. The man who says "it's not too important" when we bring our soldiers home. (Apparently, the families don't care, nor do the taxpayers paying 2 billion a week for this war.)

But, damn. He's got the experience! I guess old age means qualifications to this lady. Good good. Go change your voter registration now. Off you go. Bye bye. Thanks for fighting these last 8 years.

Update: The newer, bolder Democratic party kicked her out:

The Wisconsin Democratic Party moved Friday to strip a woman of her position as a delegate to the Democratic National Convention after she told a newspaper she would vote for Republican Sen. John McCain for president in November.

State party members voted at their convention Friday night to challenge Debra Bartoshevich's status as a delegate to the Denver convention in late August


Those comments prompted Democrats to support a complaint asking the national party's credentials committee to refuse to seat her at the convention. The resolution said Bartoshevich violated a Democratic National Committee rule requiring delegates to support the party's nominee and not any other candidate.

She was replaced by an alternate Hillary delegate, so all's fair. Jeez, lady, if you can't even support the party, don't be a delegate. It's called a PARTY. Join or get out.

I don't get it. If you're not voting for/supporting Clinton for where she stands on the issues, why ARE you voting for her?
a) Cause she's a chick? (like many of my 3rd grade feminists insist) Nah, that rules out McCain.
b) experience? No, then she woulda supported some old fart.

I got nothin.

Let remember that Cheney had more experience with foreign matters (whatever that means) of any vice-president in recent memory...and look how much good that did us.

Experience don't mean shit when all you are doing is looking out for yourself and your political career. And that is exactly what McCain has done with his foreign matter experience

Also in a somewhat weird joke I think McCain should put it out there more that he has foreign matter experience.

Yeah, McCain has done so well with foreign matters. Iraq has been dandy.
