We have been seeing quite a bit of you lately. Some of you are visiting here, some of us are visiting over there. We have formed an informal strategic alliance to defeat Barack Obama. But make no mistake, we are not Republicans nor do we wish to join your party. As our blogmother said yesterday:
And to all of you Republican readers out there, I just have one question: what are you doing here?! I mean, seriously, we are Democrats. Some of us are Liberals. We believe in the common good and progressive taxation and supporting unions and that kind of stuff. (Stop flinching) I think it’s fascinating that we are suddenly cool to you guys, like some kind of exotic species. Maybe you like to run with a dangerous crowd. Take a walk on the wild side. But let’s be honest, we’re just not into being Republican. If some of us vote for McCain, it’s only because he’s more honorable than Obama and didn’t screw half of his party out of their votes.
Please spare us the right-wing talking points. if you want to talk strategy, that’s fine. But don’t start talking about policy, because we are liberals. Let me repeat that: WE ARE LIBERALS! After the election, let’s hold some online debates and discussions. I’m all for that.
But there are only six days left until election day, and I’m down to my last nerve. And when you start spewing Reagan/Bush bullshit, you’re getting on it. You guys already have all the PUMA votes you can get. But if you keep insisting that Barack Obama is really a socialist, I may vote for him in spite of everything.
Are we clear?
