Puffy-eyed and semi-crazy, from both lack of sleep and crying with sadness and anger here. And you?
Here's what I have to say to you Bush voters in the Red States: let's face it, I live in Massachusetts, I'm fairly affluent and I'm white. It's you who will pay the short-term price for his victory. Your sons and daughters will die in Iraq and whatever other insane wars of choice Bush chooses to prosecute; Mr. Pink and I will have more than enough money in our lifetime to ensure that our kids, if we have them, don't have to join the military as a last resort in the Republican-destroyed economy. It's your daughters who won't be able to get an abortion; my state (and any I'd consider moving to in my lifetime are solidly Blue) will preserve as much as possible of our reproductive rights, and besides, I can pay for an under-the-table abortion if need be. Your kids will grow up being the laughingstocks of the western world for thinking creationism is science; I can send my kids to private school, out of the reach of insane fundamentalism.
I guess the only thing that I should be really concerned about, from a self-interest standpoint, Red States, is that Bush's continued incompetence in fighting Al Quaeda will cause another terrorist attack. And, obviously, since no one cares about places like Oklahoma City -- certainly not terrorists, and, judging by the way your chosen leaders represent you, not your own government either -- any attacks would come in Blue States, where all the consequential cities are located. So, you know, thanks for that, assholes.
Not that my own argument really convinces me. I mean, I left out all the environment stuff, the bankupting of social security, and whatever else. Who knows what the radical right will be able to do, especially now that their Congressional delegation has grown. So, uhm, does anyone know anything about how one seeks political asylum in Canada? Not joking here. Anyone?
