Seriously. What the…??
Thanks to all you newcomers who have come to my crazy part of the internet. I’m swamped today with, you know, my job, but I try to post every day and it would be rude of me not to get outraged about something. Seems like everyone else on the left is outraged for varying reasons, some of them dumb as hell, some of them perfectly reasonable. But I don’t do reasonable. It’s not my thing. I don’t know what over-the-line means. So here we go:
The whiners and the crybabies need to shut the hell up. Just shut up. For five weeks. That’s it. Then you can go back to singing your “Obama done did me wrong” song. In the meantime? Quit fucking it up for the rest of us, please. Because maybe some of you have deluded yourselves into thinking that you can lie down with dogs (i.e., the Tea Party) and not wake up with fleas (i.e., a degenerative brain disease), but you can’t.
It’s as simple as that. Those of you who are still crying about the public option, or state secrets, or whatever, just shut up. Just for a month. Because if your plan is to sit back and laugh it up for the next two years until you get to run a true progressive candidate, one likely picked by one of your Crazy Overlords, then you’re not helping. Because seriously? The chances of Dennis Kucinich or Ralph Nader actually winning an election are slim to none and I just set Slim on fire.
Disagree with Obama. Fine. Hate him. Fine. But this? And this? And this? It’s fucking ridiculous, is what it is. At the end of the day, Obama is more aligned with the shit you want to get done than fucking St. Christine O’Palin of Delalaska. And frankly, I’m more concerned about keeping the government out of my uterus than I am about most of the bullshit you people are complaining about. That is not to say that I agree with the “We should totally assassinate that Al-Olleyoxenfree” guy. Or that I don’t think the mandate is bullshit. Hey, I want a public option too. And maybe we’ll get one as HCR gets tweaked. But you know what we’ll get with Republicans? The intersection of “jack” and “shit.”
What am I saying? I’m saying who really gives a fuck about those things right now? At least who gives so much of a fuck that it’s all you can think, blog, tweet about? It’s not like it’s midterms or anything.
Get it through your heads. You are not the only people who identify as Liberals. You’re a small section of lunatics. And in some cases, racist lunatics: Calling President Obama “Chocolate Carter” is fucking racist. (Remember how much trouble Ray Nagin got into for calling New Orleans “Chocolate City”?); calling President Obama “Mr. Preznint” is also racist.
And for you sycophantic circle-jerkers who aren’t doing anything else but sitting in a circular formation and jerking each other off, honestly, are you going to take seriously the incoherent text speak ramblings of a person who thought it was appropriate to paint a picture of Joe Lieberman in motherfucking BLACKFACE!?

Because if that’s who you’re hoping is going to save you by plucking a Progressive candidate out of obscurity or perhaps, Lord help us, running herself, then you really should get your head examined.
