I feel like the reason that Republicans really hate Democrats (and Bill Clinton especially, and especially after last night’s speech) is that they make sense. They don’t fuck around with the facts, and they don’t do everything they can to fuck over the people. I think the Democrats remain permanently confused by the Republicans because they refuse to make sense, or to conform or acknowledge the rules of reality. It’s hard to have a political debate when one side proudly takes a shit on the Sapir–Whorf hypothesis and expects to be rewarded for it.
We did a lot with the election four years ago, because it was important then, just as it is now, but I don’t think there’s a lot to say about this election. Does anyone really think that Mitt Romney is going to win?
We’re not not talking about the election this year solely because Counterforce is slowly fading away and cocooning into its next phase, but more because… we just don’t need to. Listen to the candidates speak. Check your facts. Check yourself. Make the smart decision for you, and for the country, and for the future. Voting is important and so is every election, because with every act of casting a ballot of exercising that right of choice you renew one of the things about this country that still work and still work right. Don’t fuck it up.
