I was thinking about my Democratic friends today. Yes, I do have a few. I was thinking about how the Republicans get to watch this endless self flagellation of our candidates. Yet after the primary is done we’re supposed to patch up the battered and bloody candidate and run him/her nationally. Idiotic, but it is at least a chance for us to make a choice on more that one candidate. You my Democratic friends do not this year. The DNC has decided for you that you don’t get to vote for a candidate. Your presidential candidate has been pre-selected for you by the Party and not by a single voter. Oh well, the RNC screws over it’s folks like that too, but I’m not pushing 3rd party votes yet. I am pushing the fact that this November IS your first chance to vote. I hope by now that you’ve reconsidered voting for the Master of Duplicity again.

So it’s not surprising then that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations. – Barack Obama, Apr 2008 Bitter Pennsylvanians Speech
