Whee. He wants my money. He wants money from former Clinton supporters. Can he ask for it? Why yes, he can!
Obama's FISA Cave-In, fundie courting, netroots dumping, crowd-booing Gov. Granholm via throwing of Clinton Dems under bus whilst soliciting munny from them; driving Dem bus all the way to Chicago without asking anyone's permission because of being the Chosen One, running campaign that happily uses racist frames to demonize Clinton & Clinton Lee-Atwaterly in the name of "whatever makes one's candidate win is ethical 4 the end justifies the means," sweetie, dissing Clinton by pressuring Dean to keep her name off the ballot in Denver, la-di-da, la-di-da, la-di-da.
But--it's all good. Obama wants our votes and our money. Me, I want my party back.
Out of respect for some parts of blogtopia (Skippy coined that) I have promised my vote, as a Puma Obamist, though I came really really really really close to joining Dems Who Fucking Hate McCain 4 McCain (VastLeft coined that). (Oh, and I am in love with Vast Left-Wing Conspiracy, btw. Please read all his posts, referenced above. Then we can talk.)
Vote, ok. Because John McCain is a fascist pig.
But not my wallet & not my heart. Not so far, not so fast.
What's wrong with me, eh?
This is what's wrong with me. Part of it, anyhow. (There are more things, but let's do that later.)
"Tensions Remain Betwen Obama and Clinton Supporters."
BLOGGER READS ARTICLE ON INTERNETS TUBES, SMACKS RIGHT HAND ON FOREHEAD LOUDLY, CRYING OUT IN ANGUISHED INCOMPREHENSION.
Obama meets with Hillary Clinton supporters; he's looking for money. They're talking about him addressing the concerns of Clinton supporters.
(And remember, he JUST said this. This is not a quote from months ago. He JUST said this. After all the brouhaha about sexism.)
Does he listen and respectfully respond?
F*ck, no. It's like FISA. (Where he listened respectfully and caved in.)
The Chosen One listens, and responds with this:
“However, I need to make a decision in the next few months as to how I manage that [the inexplicable continuing wrath of Clinton-supporters] since I’m running against John McCain, which takes a lot of time,” Obama said.BLOGGER SPITS COFFEE AT THIS JUNCTURE RIGHT HERE. COUGHS, CHOKES.
“If women take a moment to realize that on every issue important to women, John McCain is not in their corner, that would help them get over it.”
"Get over it"?
Okay, you bitchez, you heard what the man said -- he's got important GUY shit to do, ladies. He's running against Johnny-boy! This is the big leagues, not the League of Lady voters! He's way too busy for our whiny shit.
Just f*cking get over it!
