With stories like these, how can one have much hope that America’s TeeVee-sucking hordes won’t be electing (whether they meant to or not) another asshole Republican as President?
Voter Database Glitches Could Disenfranchise Thousands – That’s right, your vote still doesn’t count, and yet they insist on making us use these easily-hackable machines. But that’s why they make us use them: they’re not secure and easily tampered with. Tell me again why I my vote counts?
GOP group behind negative Obama poll – Some douchebag GOPers decided to conduct a telephone poll amongst Jewish voters which paints Obama as a terrorist. Because to the GOP everyone’s a potential terrorist…unless you’re in the GOP, of course. Gotta love how that works!
Forum sells ‘Obama Waffles’ with racial stereotype – Yes, these waffles are real and they’re only slightly less racist than Aunt Jemima. Or are they? They certainly don’t share Aunt Jemima’s enthusiasm for breakfast foods. And yes, he’s wearing an Arab-like headdress even though he’s a Christian. You know, the ol’ terrorist angle again. But hey, there’s a free white hood and Golliwog doll in every box!
There are many other mind-bendingly depressing and anger-stirring things happening out there, but I just can’t bring myself to say much about them. I think it’s a sign of finally losing hope and settling for whatever the dumbfuck voters are swayed by. But still…I have a teensy, tiny spark of optimism that Obama will win. I’m not throwing all my support behind him, but since we have so little to choose from (God I hate this two-party crap), he’s the one I’d have to pick.
