This Ain't No Wonkette or Nuthin'

But I want to write about this.

But this speech is also meant to soothe her bruised supporters and get them to support Barack Obama, a man who -- for not a few of them -- has brazenly overtaken the more-qualified woman to grab the prize and, in so doing, has writ large the story of their own lives.

More qualified? Was she? Why? I never bought it.

As if to heap insult upon injury, the Obama campaign let it be known that it did not for a minute seriously consider Clinton as a vice presidential candidate, notwithstanding the 18 million votes she earned during the primaries and her demonstrated ability to win over white, working-class voters who remain cool to Obama and who are necessary for victory in the fall.

Fuck white working-class voters. I'm sick of hearing about racist, backwater, West Virginian assholes we need to win this election. If the Democrats win by wooing the Republicans, fuck the Democrats too. What does it say about the progressivism of your candidate if she can win the votes of racist white men?

Aside from the fact that we've had enough Bill Clinton, we've had more than enough dynasty, right?

He won by a margin, but he still won. He didn't do it by demolishing feminism. Get an actual feminist, an actual progressive, an actual DEMOCRAT in heels, and I'll send Madam campaign contributions. Until then, wake up and get real, because if you think John McCain is going to be good on women's issues, or worse yet, you don't care, then you deserve whatever symbolic gulag you find yourself in.

I tried to convince my mom today. It's so frustrating talking to them about the world.

It's worth pointing out also that the blue collar voters Hillary so proudly touting were probably only voting for her because they didn't want to vote for the black guy.
