Editor's note: You may have noticed I've been blogging more recently. The reasons for this are two part: 1) Blue Gal threw down the gauntlet before me and unsubtly coerced me to write 2) My lady love is out of town until early next week.
That being said, let me get to the gist of it while the euphoria of coffee consumption is still around and before I prepare to leave for another slog at my current job.
I have nothing particularly pithy to add towards John Kerry's chronic case of foot-in-mouth disease. Suffice to say he wasn't my first choice, though I did vote for him. I was a Deaniac until "Yeahhhha" (or the Primal Scream Incident). There was always something about John Kerry that I disliked. He seems inauthentic, robotic, and stuffy.
I tend to be attracted more to the charismatic sorts who cannot seem to keep their member in their pants. This includes politicians who rut with people PAST THE LEGAL AGE OF CONSENT.
I favor Barak Obama, though I believe strongly the Right isn't ready for a President of Color.
I certainly do not want Ms. Hillary Rodham Clinton because she a) lacks charisma b) polarizes rather than unifies c) isn't liberal enough for my tastes d) lets opinion polls determine her positions, rather than relying on actual conviction and e) I have never liked her as a personality.
I think Mr. Obama will put up a strong challenge in '08, but I think the Clinton machine will grind away at his New Hampshire primary win and through cult of personality and sheer money will wrest the nomination. And furthermore, I think Hillary can win because I think many women out there who proport to loathe her will get to the polls and have a sort of epiphany.
"I want a woman president. I wish it wasn't Hillary. But who knows when we'll get another chance to elect a woman. I mean, Britain has had a female Prime Minister. Isn't it time for the USA?"
So they'll vote for her.
There are currently many more white females (or females, for that matter) then there are African-Americans.
