Lot of protesting today. And I'm about to say some things that are going to get me in trouble down the line. Because I can't stand protesters when I agree with them (SAWB can vouch for me). But what really gets me are protesters who drive me to feel contempt.
"Count Every Vote," and all that. "What do we want? Democracy! When do we want it? Now!"
Yeah, right. How about this one: "What do you need? A Calendar! When did you need it? A couple months back, when you didn't look like a bunch of spoiled brats on C-SPAN!"
I dare these same people to show up to their voting precincts on the Tuesday after the first Monday in October to cast their ballot for President. See if that vote counts. Then they can go complain to the US government about it. Betcha no one will give an inch.
Yes, you live in a democracy, but that doesn't mean you don't have to follow rules, knuckleheads. Here's some real simple, common sense things: The sun will rise tomorrow in the East. If you jump into water, you will get wet. If you poo somewhere other than in a recommended receptacle, you've made a mess.
There are rules we have about voting in this country, for good or ill. And, if you vote in the wrong way, or during the wrong time or on the wrong day when you know that vote does not count, don't complain about it to me at some later date because NOW you want to particpate. Should have been thinking about that some time ago.
And one last thing: don't DARE come to the national party or complain about any candidate. You don't like it, talk to your damn state party leadership because this is their screw up, no one else's.
And, taking one for the team, G-Bitch liveblogged the "proceedings".
