Washington is the latest state to show a strong western surge for John McCain since he added Alaska Governor Sarah Palin to the Republican ticket.
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey in Washington finds Barack Obama still ahead, but barely. It’s Obama 49%, McCain 47%. A month ago, Obama was up by twelve percentage points. Recent polls have shown McCain gains in Montana, New Mexico and North Dakota.
Among Democrats, Obama now attracts 83% of the vote, down six points from last month. However, the big change comes among unaffiliated voters who now favor McCain by a 48% to 43% margin. In August, before the two parties held their conventions, Obama led by twelve among voters not affiliated with either major political party....
Excuse me? What, in the immortal words of Amy Winehouse, just what kind of fuckery is this? Why is my state swinging McCain's way?
Are you sex-starved egomaniacs who think McCain will reward your vote by letting you bone his running mate?
Is it the never-ending sleaze, lies and stupidity that attracts you?
Are you fucking insane?
Let me repeat my question of a few days ago: Just what was so wonderful about the last eight years that you're willing to risk an encore?
If any of you switchers are reading this, tell me why the fuck you're breaking for a decrepit fuckwit who wants to mire America in more useless wars, who's going to tax your healthcare benefits, who wants to cut taxes on the rich and shaft you, who picks a supremely unqualified con to be his running mate strictly for political gain, who can't open his damned mouth without lying, and who has a hair-trigger temper to boot.
Go back through the Discursos from the last month, and point out to me what balances that relentless dumbfuckery. Give me specific fucking policy proposals that make you believe McCain isn't going to bend you over a table and rape you up the ass if he ends up in office.
If you're a woman, tell me what's so attractive about having Roe v. Wade overturned, and birth control counted as an abortion so that you can't get it. Tell me what's so great about unequal pay. Tell me what makes you think a man who would publically call his wife a cunt and his political rival a bitch will have the slightest respect for you.
All of you, give me one valid area in which McCain differs from Bush.
Because I really want to understand why you're leaning his way. I'm trying very hard to convince myself you're not stupid, and yet, I can't think of a single reason why a thinking person would support John Fucking McCain.
And let me tell you something as a former Arizonan: the John McCain you may think you're voting for is a myth. His vaunted honor has never been anything more than expediency. He just has an adoring media fan club that likes to believe his tall tales. Don't you believe them, too.
Come back to your senses. Don't sell your country up the river for fool's gold.
