What is this babbling bullshit on CNN?

Posted by · 8:28 pm · August 26th, 2008

Someone just interviewed a blubbering idiot Hillary supporter who apparently didn’t understand what the fuck Clinton’s message was, the one she delivered not 10 minutes ago.  You’re going to be faced with something you’ve never been faced with?  You’d rather not vote at all than vote for Barack Obama?  What kind of blind ignorant shit is this and who the fuck had the wisdom to pave the way for her to be a delgate.

God I hope that is a considerable minority opinion.  Yes, Clinton did exactly what she was supposed to do tonight and it’s time — SO time — for her supporters to understand that they still have a vote that counts and if they throw it away, on McCain or a blank ballot, they’re betraying anything they supposedly stood for in the first place.

    Okay, how the hell did you get this up so fast? I was wondering the same thing, that woman was INSANE!

    Calm down. Yes, she’s an idiot. No, this isn’t deserving of its own article.

    It deserved whatever I felt it deserved on my own blog, Brian, thank you kindly. This is an election year, which will yield items such as this. Not gonna apologize for it.

    Yeah that was bullshit. It really was a fantastic speech. It’s hard to argue against that.

    Sorry Kris, I must disagree with you on your comment. You can only post what Brian deems appropriate. Please remove this post and apologize.

    i am glad someone else caught that Clinto delegate jaw-dropper. Obviously she was supporting Clinton for Clinton and not the young returning Marine, the woman with cancer who has no health insurance or the son whose Mom’s minimum wage hours were cut… and I was so happy to find it here on a movie blog because IT MATTERS.

    I’m not particularly suprised. I feel that like most politicians, Hillary represents to her supporters something other than what she stands for. As much as George Bush represented the “absolute right point of view and everyone else is wrong” to the conservitives, Clinton represented “The Only Enlightened Point of View and Everyone Else is a Bigomist.” to the entitled liberal boomer left.

    Not to say that either Hillary or Bush really feel this way. This is just a symptom of the culture wars. I think that after seeing what obstiancy can do to the oval office, Democrats would be more willing to compromise. If the boomer liberal left continues to stick its feet in the ground because they didn’t get everything they wanted, then we’ll never succeed.

    For a moment, just a moment…I felt bad for her. And then after 20 seconds went by, she kept talking and getting more deranged and ridiculous.

    Your words are great…be it here or elsewhere on the blogosphere.

    I think Americans should really start to worry about another 4 years of Republican war mongering. The polls are still way more even than they should be. I am so afraid that McCain will win…

    I thought this was a movie-related blog. When I see rants like this one – even ones I agree with – I tend to cease subscribing. I come here expecting an opinion on film and film-related awards, not politics.

    I don’t expect anyone to notice, but this is goodbye for me.

    ^ definitely has a point, though it is indeed your site, to do with as you will.

    That said, saying a vote for McCain is the equivalent of wasting it, or not voting at all, seems a bit blindly one-sided. Both candidates have strong points.

    It’s guys like you that made it clear that no woman can ever become president in the U.S.

    That’s an ignorant statement, zeke. My words here have nothing to do with the sex of a person running for office. It’s guys like you that continue to dumb down America with black-and-white sentiments such as this.

    Goodbye Jeff. Sad to see you go but the day I stop offering thoughts such as these because one or two people would rather dictate to me what does and does not belong on MY blog is the day I die a little inside.

    Sherry, you’re missing my point — completely. This woman said she would not vote for McCain, but there is a real danger that Clinton supporters may indeed do just that. I’m sorry, but to do so would indeed go against everything Clinton and the Democrats stand for and it isn’t out of bounds to say so. It’s one thing if you believe in the ideals McCain represents but to jump the fence because Obama’s experience level has you on guard is to completely ignore the vast differences in these two candidates’ philosophies.

    Good ideas on both sides or not, President McCain would take this country in a far different direction than President Obama. And if an ignorant delegate doesn’t understand that, or, in this delegate’s case, is willing to abstain from the process, then he or she doesn’t deserve to BE a delegate.

    No need in trying to turn this into a partisan argument because it’s not. And no need for stupid bullshit like zeke’s statement either, because it’s all unfounded. This is a simple matter of the process, and an observation that there are those who don’t apparently understand what their role in it can mean.

    McCain will take this country into a far better direction than Obama.

    Remember: Vote early and vote often.

    Why oh why do people think that McCain is harmless? Why not just keep Bush and Buddys in the white house?

    Bush can’t stay in the White House.

    According tothe twenty-second amendment of the Constitution, “No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice…”
