I first heard the lame Liberal rationale for voting against their values and interests -- "holding my nose" -- during the infamous "election" of 2000. In the decade or so since then, my reaction to that gutless cop-out has gone from outrage to annoyance to mild amusement to hysterics.
In every instance, my question -- still awaiting an answer -- has always been the same: how much longer are you going to sit still for the Democratic Party's abuse? What are you going to do when the stench gets so bad that holding your nose doesn't work?
The brain-dead philosophy of Liberal America -- "holding your nose" and voting for "the lesser evil" -- has yielded absolute zero in terms of any benefits. In fact, Liberals' continued insistence on voting against their interests pretty much fits the classic definition of insanity: doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.
So, you can imagine my shock and chagrin when I saw this recent article by Sam Smith -- normally a bastion of sanity and clear, independent thought -- advocating an "Obama One Night Stand" Movement, published at his Progressive Review. I didn't know whether to laugh until I pissed myself, or to go lay down on a railroad track.
If you insist on reading Sam's statement of capitulation to lesser-evilism, I strongly urge you to remove any cups of coffee or sleeping cats from the vicinity of your keyboard -- and if you've just taken a sip of coffee, swallow it immediately. You've been warned.
