Comments on: Dems to women: it’ll be different this time, baby, we promise! http://www.historiann.com/2010/10/07/dems-to-women-itll-be-different-this-time-baby-we-promise/ History and sexual politics, 1492 to the present Tue, 23 Sep 2014 09:03:39 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.9.2 By: KC http://www.historiann.com/2010/10/07/dems-to-women-itll-be-different-this-time-baby-we-promise/comment-page-1/#comment-725734 Tue, 12 Oct 2010 17:29:33 +0000 http://www.historiann.com/?p=12735#comment-725734 I think this is the way Democrats treat many of their main constituencies: women, gays, blacks, etc. Unfortunately, the current insanity of the GOP means that it really is a “lesser of two evils” type situation for a lot of voters.

If he’s convincingly ahead, I’ll vote for the Green.

Buh-bye Bill. Thanks for playing. Next time, try reading and lurking a while before you share your awesome wisdom with us.

Wow, you’ll vote for the Green candidate, if the polls indicate a safe lead for the Democrat. You are taking such a profound and convincing stand. Bennett is dead to you, DEAD! His hearts not even beating any more, he’s so dead!(Unless Buck looks strong in the polls.) Why should I take you seriously when you don’t even do so yourself?

Wait, what?? I thought it was a Dem majority Congress that just voted for HCR which expanded application of Hyde.

Wait, what?? I thought 22 Dems voted FOR John Roberts.

Also, Senators don’t cast votes on the global gag rule. That’s an executive order. Ooops!

And that’s from the party that’s on our side! I feel inspired to vote already! I’m sure there’s a fantastic Blue Dog candidate who voted for the Hyde amendment running for re-election in my district. Maybe said candidate wants to join our “Women for Lower Pay” party.

All women must forget about their “selfish” interests and support Dear Leader and his magical majority that has accomplished nothing on our behalf.

Heh. Clearly a drive-by swipe, as regular readers know I never “stay home” on election day with my self-righteousness and petulance.

And koshem Bos: there’s a Green running for the U.S. Senate I didn’t know about until yesterday, so that might be where my vote goes, depending on how Buck is polling.

Amy Goodman aside (I don’t like Stalinists either), one shouldn’t ignore the larger picture; you should hold your nose and vote for the smelly skunk to avoid the very upfront and dangerous Republican wolf.

In Judaism: Pikuach nefesh “saving of human life” is a commandment that, for example, mandates a surgeon to operate on the holy sabbath to save life. It’s a widely practiced commandment. The reason is obvious. To save life you are commanded not to vote for Republicans and I mean it literally.

2012 is a different matter. I don’t believe the country can afford four more years of the spineless Obama. If he stays, we will have to give our first born to the Banks in addition to our social security earnings.
