I'm Scared

I apologize. I don't have time to put as much effort into this post as it deserves.

But as things look now, the two best, well funded, most popular Democratic candidates for president are a "black", but not-African-American, mostly unknown candidate whose middle name is "Hussein"; and the female and almost more villified half of the Clinton White House.

America has never elected an African-American as president.

America has never elected a ""black" non-African-America as president.

America has never elected a woman as president.

America has never elected a president whose middle name is HUSSEIN, after just badly hanging a foreign dictator with the same name.

America has never elected a Senator representing New York, who is really from Arkansas, whose husband was a two-term president, who got a blow job from an intern in the Oval Office, who was impeached, who would, if his wife was elected. be the First what? First Husband? First Guy? First Dude? First Former President Now First Mister Man?

I'm voting for Obama. I think. So far. Based on what I know now. I don't have any problem with President Barak Hussein Obama.

But I'm afraid that old fashioned, democratic Americans, faced with a choice between a white woman or a black man, might panic and vote Republican and feel really REALLY guilty about it later.

In other words, I'm afraid that my fellow Democrats don't have the balls to do what needs to be done to repair the damage that has been done over the last six years.

I hope I'm wrong.

It is sad to say, but you are right. Your average voter in this country is well into the mid 50's to 60's range, and well, for lack of a better way to say this. They thought a bit differently then. My step-father, die hard Democrat, is plainly racists and sexist on a good day. I have tried educating the idiot, but alas, he is a dumbass. But he fears change to an extreme. No way his demographic will change thier ways. Good post.

Me too friend. Me too. I still dont know what Im going to do. Personal preferences aside, I just cant see john and jane q racist/sexist america voting for either of the top two candidates. Maybe we are wrong and it will all be ok? maybe?

I'm voting for Gore, whether he's running or not.

Unfortunately it looks like the dems will have to choose from one of these two media darlings. I frankly think the best Democrat candidate is Richardson from New Mexico.

Among the Democrat candidates, Richardson has the best record of achievement, but I guess that doesn't really matter to the Dems this year.

From the old sexist generation (you know the one who burned their bras) and the old racist generation (the one who brought you the civil rights movement) there are still a few brain cells left amongst us. We might just surprise you and vote for the best candidate based on issues...

Sometimes you guys kill me lol

emawkc- Can't find your email address on your page. My husband took your suggestion & has put the first chapter of his book up. Take a look & post a comment.

XO- Sorry about using your blog to contact emawkc.

You know emaw, I agree with you on Richardson. Plus, he's like the only guy on the planet that seems to be able to communicate with N. Korea.

spyder - that's O.K. It kinda makes me feel like one of those dark, smokey bars in a film noir where the seedy private eye goes to pick up his mail from the bartender and puts a cheap scotch on his tab just before the beautiful dame walks in with a case involving her cheating husband, a Swiss bank account and some hidden Nazi plunder.

Which is WAY COOLER than how I usually feel, so thanks!

Emaw - you have mail!
