Many of you are yet again threatening to not vote for Obama, should he become the Democratic nominee, because he is a sexist pig.
I must remind you that there is a world of difference between “sweetie” and “cunt.” And as much as I despise being called “sweetie,” I hate being called “cunt” a whole lot worse.
If Obama is the Democratic nominee and you don’t vote for him, you will be helping to elect a man who calls his wife “cunt” in public. You will be helping to elect a man from a party that thinks taking cheap shots at a woman not even running for office is acceptable. You will be helping to elect a man who can’t imagine ending this war, which has been devastating to the women of Iraq and a grueling strain on the women of the armed forces (and the wives and daughters of the men of the armed forces), until 2013 at the earliest.
You want to play chicken with our future?
I can issue ultimatums, too.
If you help to elect John McCain, who is running as a Bush 3.0, if you help elect a man whose every campaign promise seems to share a core of increasing suffering in the world, history will view you as idiots.
Neither Clinton nor Obama is a perfect candidate. But either of them is one million times better than McCain.
I don’t care how you do it. Hold your nose. Promise yourself you’ll do this one thing and then you’re seriously moving to Canada. Get so drunk you won’t remember voting for Obama. Vote for Obama and write in “Fucky McFuckerson (D)” for every other race. Vote for Obama and then print yourself up a bunch of “Chelsea Clinton 2016” shirts and start campaigning. Whatever you need to do to get yourself at peace with it.
But you have got to make an effective vote against McCain.
If you don’t, his presidency is on your hands.
